Airlines don't like the regulation and generally try to delay, obfuscate and otherwise pretend claims relating to it do not exist or are invalid.

Ticket stock (ticketing carrier), flight number (marketing carrier) are irrelevant when it come to EUC 261/2004.

It's the operating carrier who is liable - so KLM - and they have lied to you (it's nothing to do with DL)

Contact them again and do not be put off.
