Delta Airlines is refunding millions of dollars to customers who endured canceled COVID-19 flights as a settlement in their class-action lawsuit.

Customers sued Delta, claiming the airliner wouldn’t refund their canceled flights during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Instead of issuing refunds, Delta gave customers online credits to put toward another Delta flight.

Delta is going to pay a total of $27 million to customers Saturday to customers who filed legal claims, along with interest and legal fees.
