Baggage allowance on Delta Air Lines

Hand luggage

Delta Air Lines allows a suitcase per passenger, as well as one personal item. Personal items include bags, camera cases, laptops, briefcases, and similarly sized items.

However, food and drink purchased in the area after the airport security control, and duty-free items do not count in this restriction, so you can take them without problems.

Jackets, umbrellas, strollers or child seats, and wheelchairs or crutches are also not taken into account.

The maximum dimensions of the carry-on bag allowed are 56x35x23 cm. Regardless of this, small musical instruments are allowed to fit in the overhead compartment of the aircraft or under the seat.

Regarding weight, there is no restriction on the carry-on bag, except for these airports:

  • Changi International Airport (SIN), Singapore: maximum 7 kg (15 lbs.)
  • Incheon International Airport (ICN), South Korea: up to 10 kg (22 lbs).
  • Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK) China: on domestic flights, up to 10 kg. In international, without restrictions.
  • Pudong International Airport (PVG) China: up to 10 kg (22 lbs).

It should be remembered that liquid substances are only allowed in hand luggage if they are in containers of up to 100 ml kept in a transparent plastic bag with a top closure. The total maximum cannot exceed one liter. Also, objects that could be considered dangerous are not allowed.

Checked baggage

Depending on the route of the flight you are going to take, the price of checked bags varies. If you are traveling from the United States or Canada (with the exception of the US Virgin Islands) to one of these destinations, you will need to pay 25 USD (US dollars) for the first checked bag:

  • U.S. and Canada
  • US Virgin Islands
  • Central America
  • Caribbean
  • Guyana
  • Shorts
  • Mexico

This same price applies to flights between the countries of Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean.

For all other flights, the first checked bag is free. This has a weight limit of 23 kg. As for the second checked bag, its price varies between $ 35 and $ 100. However, for some flights it is also free, for example, from the United States to Argentina and most countries in South America.

Also, if your ticket is first class, Delta Premium Select or Delta One, the first and second suitcases are free. In addition, both can weigh up to 32 kg. On the other hand, Delta SkyMiles Medallion members or SkyMiles credit card holders also get the first bag free.

Some objects may be prohibited inside your luggage, such as camping sports equipment that carries fuel or remnants of it. Eg: a can of butane.

The maximum number of bags that can be checked in per person is ten. If the weight of some of these is greater than allowed, it will be identified as excess baggage and, therefore, an additional charge must be paid.
