Delta Air Lines follows a fairly standard baggage policy in terms of free carry-on bags, charging pretty average fees for U.S. domestic and Canada/Mexico flights, and including one to two bags in the base fare for international flights (dependent on cabin class).

Additional pieces after 1-2 bags, as well as overweight/oversized bags carry a pretty hefty fee, so try to stick to your regulations!

Delta Carry-On Allowance

1 personal item: FREE
1 standard carry-on bag: FREE

Size Restrictions

  • Personal: undisclosed, but Delta references items such as a purse, briefcase, camera bag, or laptop bag
  • Standard: 22 x 14 x 9 inches (56 x 35 x 23 cm)

  • Singapore Changi International Airport: 15 pounds / 7 kg
  • Beijing Capital International Airport: 22 pounds / 10 kg
  • Shanghai Pudong International Airport: 22 pounds / 10 kg

Lap Infant Carry-On Policy

  • Unticketed infants do not have a baggage allowance. So any baggage for the child counts as part of the adult’s baggage allowance. An adult is permitted to bring an infant seat, bassinet, breast pump and/or associated cooler bag, in addition to their carry-on allowance.

Stroller Check Policy

  • Delta Airlines does not count strollers or car seats as part of standard baggage. Therefore, Delta checks these items for free at the curbside, ticket counter, or gate.

    For a domestic economy flight, does delta allow 2 pieces of baggage with 50lbs(23kgs) per bag?

    Reply

    • Hi Aliena!

      For a domestic economy flight with Delta, you definitely can check 2 pieces of baggage that are up to 50lbs(23kgs) per bag. Do keep in mind, the cost to do so will be $30 for your first bag and $40 for your second in each direction.

      To be eligible for the first bag free benefit, the credit card holder must be be traveling on the reservation. So your friend would not receive a free bag if traveling without you, even if you purchase the flight with your credit card.

  7. Hello. I’m wondering if you are aware of a recent change in Delta’s free baggage policy for Delta card holders. Per the below link to Delta’s free bag policy, it looks like you must purchase the flight specifically with the Delta card, not simply have the card. I was hoping to purchase an upcoming flight with my Chase Sapphire Reserve so as to receive the travel benefits from that card. If this is the case, I wonder if they would allow you to pay for the flight with the Delta card and then the taxes with another card, the CSR, so as to receive the benefits of both? Thanks for your opinion. Best regards.

      Hi Laurel,

      Thanks for highlighting this change to us, we’ll validate this info and get the article updated.

      We don’t have any experience of split card payments with Delta and can’t find any info on their website; however, we did find a response to this question on Delta’s Twitter page where Delta’s customer representative advised split payment between 2 credit cards is not possible. It might be worth you giving Delta a call to confirm this.

    Hi there,

    Very helpful website! I cannot find what is the cost and weight limit of a third bag in First Class, for a flight between US and Central America. We will have a lot of luggage, so we’re wondering if it would pay off to get first class tickets and be able to have heavier bags… but that’ll depend on the cost of the third bag in first class.

    Reply

    • Catherine Luther August 5, 2019

      Hi Sofia,

      A third bag to Central America would cost 150 USD and for 4-10 bags the charge would be 200 USD each. This excludes the following airports: GUA Guatemala, SAP Honduras, SAL El Salvador where the cost is $200 each for any additional bags. These additional bags would be 32 kgs which is the same weight as your free allowance for First Class. If you booked an Economy ticket then each bag could only weigh up to 23 kgs.

    Hello,

    I have a question regarding my trip to Spain. I’m planning on purchasing the flight via Delta using my new Gold Delta SkyMiles. I need to check in two 23kg luggage’s and am trying to figure out the most economic way of doing this. What I want to know is the following:

    If I purchase a ticket for the main cabin which includes a free checked-in bag, does that mean that the Gold SkyMiles card will grant me an additional luggage to check in or will I have to pay for the second?

    Is it better to purchase a basic economy ticket which is usually cheaper than the main cabin. Although I’ll have to pay for the second luggage, I’ll be able to get the free luggage that the SkyMiles card offers which will ultimately result in a lower cost.

    Which one should I go with?

    Reply

    • Catherine Luther September 4, 2019

      Hi Kelvin,

      The free checked bag applies to the first checked bag only, so if you booked a flight that already includes luggage, you would still have to pay for the 2nd bag. So it would likely be cheaper for you to book a basic economy ticket and purchase your 2nd bag. Just obviously be aware of the limitations that can come with a basic economy fare such as no changes/cancellations or seat selection.

    One passenger will have one suitcase up to 50lb and the other will have one suitcase up to 50lb and a second suitcase that may be over 50lb but still less than 70lb.
    Can you advise me, please?

    • Hi Lesley,

      For this route, each passngers first checked bag will cost $30 if it is under 50 lbs, and $40 for a second bag under 50 lbs. If either bag is over 50 lbs but under 70 lbs then they charge will be $100.

      If you open the card before your flight then you should be able to receive a free checked bag since the benefit will be associated with your SkyMiles number and not the card you paid with. You could reach out to Delta for confirmation of this as well.

    We are planning on flying from London – Las Vegas with Delta Airlines. I am a platinum member. How does the first free checked baggage work?

    When I book the flights, do I purchase the flight without baggage and then add it later for it to be waived? The only option it gives me is to upgrade from economy light to economy plus however nothing is waived in pricing.

    Also, will the free checked luggage apply to both me and my partner?

      Hi Jyoti,

    • Hi Ravi,

      Unfortunately, those cards do not include a free checked bag benefit. However, if you have Delta Air Lines set as your airline for the incidental credits offered with each card, then you can get your baggage fees reimbursed after paying for them with either your Amex Gold or Platinum card. Each year, you receive $100 in incidental credits on the Gold card and $200 on the Platinum card.

      Thanks for reading!

      Reply

      • Jarrod West, can you reassess Ravi’s question? He is using either Gold Delta SkyMiles Card or Platinum Delta SkyMiles Card, those cards have the 1st bag checked for free as a benefit.

        If you booked through Delta.com and the flight is operated by a partner airline, do you get the 1st checked bag free if a Delta SkyMiles card is used to book the flight?

        Reply

        • Hi Yuri,

          You are not required to pay with the Delta Gold/Platinum card in order to receive the free baggage benefit. However, the terms state “The first checked bag fee waiver will only be applied on flight segments which originate on a Delta or Delta Connection® carrier when you check-in with Delta for both a Delta marketed and Delta operated flight. Codeshare flights are not eligible.”

          In this case, you would not receive a free checked bag from the credit card when flying with Air France.

    Is a tennis racket considered a carry on?

    Reply

    • Hi Igor, Delta does not specifically mention any information about tennis rackets in their online section regarding baggage and sporting goods. However, Delta outlines the dimensions of a carry-on bag to not exceed 22″ x 14″ x 9″ as per their policy, and I would assume your racket is smaller than this? That being said, it also may depend on if you plan to bring this on as your “carry-on” item or as your “personal item”.

      As such (and since we are not Delta), I suggest you call their customer service line and inquire with them directly. (1-800-221-1212 from the U.S.)

Advertiser Disclosure

Many of the credit card offers that appear on this site are from credit card companies from which we receive financial compensation. This compensation may impact how and where products appear on this site (including, for example, the order in which they appear). However, the credit card information that we publish has been written by experts who know these products inside out, and what we recommend is what we would (or already) use ourselves. This site does not include all credit card companies or all available credit card offers that are on the market. For more information on our advertisers, see here.
