What are Delta Airlines Luggage Policies?

Delta recently updated their luggage policy. For passengers flying this airline in the near future, it is very important to be aware of these policies and how they will affect your trip. As you know, every airline is different when it comes to their luggage policy. The more you know before you leave for the airport the more enjoyable your trip will be.

When traveling within the United States, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, you are allowed to check one bag free of charge. If traveling outside of these areas each passenger can check two bags without incurring a fee.

Each bag must weigh less than 50 pounds, and may not be any larger than 62 inches when adding the length, width, and height. If you must check a bag that is heavier or larger than these restrictions, you will be faced with an additional fee of up to $300.

Delta recently put many of these restrictions in place. If you are flying on this airline you will want to consider your destination, the number of bags you are checking and their size. All of these details are important features of Delta’s overall luggage policy. Avoiding mistakes will make the check-in process less stressful.
