Westchester To Palm Beach Flight Delay

On Monday my flight to Palm Beach took off an hour late. After arriving over Palm Beach, there were thunder storms and we circled. Pilot says he only has enough fuel to stay for 10 minutes before diverting to Orlando to refuel.

sit on runway for an hour waiting for gate. After getting a gate we have to deplane and then pilots time out. We then sit in Orlando for another 7 hours before taking off and arriving in Palm Beach at 2:00 AM. 9 hours late

Am I entitled to compensation for a delayed flight

I would have rented a car and sent the bill to them to fight later. You're likely not going to receive anything other than a few miles.

I would definitely ask as this seems like an extenuating circumstance(not the weather but the Orlando delay part) but I also would have probably rented a car and just sent them the bill.
