  1. Do you know if this changed from 2018? I was told my Delta Platnum AmEx did not count and was made to pay a baggage fee for my checked bag. Please share the link where you found this confirmation please so I may show it if asked again on my trip Saturday. Thanks so much in advance.

      Hi Sonja and thanks for your question. Delta American Express cards only waive the fee for baggage on Delta flights, not for partner airlines such as AeroMexico.

  2. Faustino Ramirez · March 18, 2019 · Reply

    Can I pay for my checked baggage before my travel date?

  3. Matthew L Howe · April 16, 2019 · Reply

    The 158 cm (62 inch) dimension, is that including the handles?

    • Catherine Luther · April 17, 2019 · Reply

      Hi Matthew, airlines typically include any handles or wheels in their maximum dimensions. Although it doesn’t look like Aeromexico states this specifically on their website, you must be prepared to pay a fee if your baggage exceeds this.
