Online check-in

Online check-in is available from 24 hours prior to departure. In order to check into a Delta flight, passengers must enter their ticket or credit card number. It will then be possible to select the passengers name travelling on the flight and the amount of checked luggage they will take on the plane. At this stage, it will still be possible to make changes such as upgrading the seat or paying for extra baggage. Once the check-in process has been complete, it will be possible to print off the boarding pass or, depending on the departure airport, have the boarding pass sent to a mobile device.

Hand luggage allowance

All passengers travelling on Delta flights can take 1 piece of hold baggage with them on board free of charge. The luggage may not be larger than 56 x 35 x 23 cm. There is no weight limit on the hand luggage for most flight routes. In addition to the hand luggage, passengers are also allowed to take a personal item for free such as a camera, laptop, handbag or purse. Hold luggage and personal items must be able to be stored in the overhead lockers. Liquids are allowed on board however each container should not exceed 100 ml. Each liquid container must be able to fit into a sealed plastic bag.

Checked baggage allowance

The amount of checked luggage a passenger is allowed to take with them depends on the flight route they are travelling as well as the type of ticket they have purchased. It is possible to check in online from 24 hours prior to departure. When checking-in, passengers can enter the amount of luggage they would like to take with them and pay any charges if necessary. Most sport equipment is allowed on the flight however additional baggage charges could apply if the equipment exceeds the size and weight restrictions. Musical instruments can also be taken on board as either hold or checked luggage, depending on how large or heavy the instrument is.

New York
Heathrow - John F Kennedy Intl Airport ( LHR - JFK )
3.0 /5
Date 2018-03-30 City UK Age 51-70 Class Economy

Why is it that airlines do not carry non-dairy milk such as soya for tea and coffee supplied to vegans and lactose intolerant passengers?.... it is absurd that in this day and age the only choice is dairy milk. The cost of a carton of soya milk is less than $2 so a single carton could have made the whole flight experience satisfactory. Since it was missing I had to drink black coffee and therefore I have given a 3 star rating.
