What is Delta Airlines Carry on Luggage Policy?

All Delta passengers are permitted to carry on one personal item as well as one bag. That being said, there are restrictions that you need to be aware of. If your items do not match the restrictions set forth by Delta, you will have to check them in the belly of the plane.

Your carry on bag is not permitted to weigh more than 40 pounds. To go along with this, it cannot exceed 45 inches when adding the length, width, and height. The final restriction to be aware of is that the bag must fit under the seat in front of you or in the overhead bin.

Delta also allows you to carry on one personal item. This can include laptop computers, purses, briefcases, diaper bags, cameras, etc. To go along with this, you can also bring aboard a jacket, food, medical devices such as a cane or wheelchair, and one bag of duty free items.

In addition to airline restrictions, passengers must also follow TSA regulations. For instance, no more than 3 ounces of liquid or gels can be carried on.

While Delta is not nearly as strict with their carry on policy as many other airlines, you must still be aware of the restrictions that are in place.
