Checked baggage on Delta Domestic

Mon Mar 20, 2017 6:41 am

Hey everyone,

I just booked a return trip SFO-LAX on Delta, which I am really looking forward to since it's on the 717. Anyway, I booked it on Delta.com and during the booking process I tried to add checked luggage. I didn't find a way to do that though. So after I booked the trip I logged in to my booking however there was still no option to add the luggage. The fee for a ("the first") checked bag per trip is $25 though, as per Delta.com. So I'm wondering where I can add the luggage to my booking. I don't want to pay the even higher fees at the bag drop.

Help a helpless European get through America! :D

Cheers,

Paul

Last week I just did mine when I checked in online and it didn't cost any more.

SJCMSP is correct. The checked baggage fee on DL is a fixed price that does not change, no matter how or when it is paid. I'm not even sure that it can be paid in advance. I've always done it at check-in time. If you check in online, or via the Delta app, there is a step in the process that will ask how many bags you plan to check, and you will be asked to pay the fee at that time. Similar process if you check in at the airport.

Hey SJCMSP and redzeppelin,

thanks for your replies. That cleared things up for me.
Is there a reason as to why it's not possible to pay earlier? In my case, once we check in we have to pay another $100 so it feels like I have to pay twice for the flight and now I have to keep in mind that I still have to book the luggage. I would've preferred to pay once while booking the flight. Just wondering what the reason behind that might be.
