If your flight is not covered by the EU 261 Regulation, it is probably covered by the Montreal Convention. The Montreal Convention covers international flights between nations that honor the regulation. Most major airline markets are bound with a few notable exceptions (Sri Lanka and Vietnam).
Under the Montreal Convention, the airline is liable if your flight is delayed. The airline's liability is capped at 4,150 Special Drawing Rights (SDRs). This is an international reserve asset created by the International Monetary Fund in 1969, and based on current valuations, this amount is roughly $5,900 - £4,300 - €4,900 - per passenger.
