Checked Baggage

Excess & Overweight Baggage


If you’re bringing a bag or two, or even 3 to 10, review the guidelines for associated fees. Keep in mind, there are separate fees for each limitation a bag exceeds: including size, weight or quantity limits. For items with a unique size, shape or weight, check Special Items. Exceptions may apply to Active Military and Medallion Members.

Excess Baggage Guidelines


If you’re bringing checked bags, follow the guidelines to make sure they meet these requirements — otherwise they might be subject to extra fees. To check your bag, measure in linear inches or centimeters (length + width + height).

  • Up to 10 bags may be checked per passenger on flights operated by Delta or Delta Shuttle.
  • Up to 4 bags may be checked bags on Delta Connection® carrier flights.
  • We may limit the amount of excess baggage when such excess prevents us from transporting up to two bags per passenger.
  • For more information on checked baggage limitations (baggage embargoes) please visit our Baggage Embargoes and Limitations page. 
  • Delta Connection carriers accept excess baggage on a space-available basis. If the baggage cannot be carried on the same flight with you, it will be transported on the next available flight.
  • Camera, film, videotape, lighting, and sound equipment will be accepted when tendered by representatives of network or local television broadcasting companies or commercial filmmaking companies. See Media Bags for complete details.
  • Any bags exceeding the ticketed itinerary allocation: number of pieces, weight or size are accepted on a standby basis.
  • Bags that do not meet our size and weight restrictions size and weight restrictions will require special handling and additional fees.

    It's important to know that there are separate fees for each limitation you exceed: size, weight and quantity. For example, if an extra piece of baggage exceeds the weight and size limits, it will be subject to three fees: one for the extra bag, one for exceeding the weight limit and one for going over the size restriction. Fees are charged for each additional bag, each way.

    Some destinations may have additional restrictions as well. Please review the breakdown below. All baggage fees listed below are current and applicable for all ticketing on or after today when Delta's baggage rules are determined to apply. If you ticketed prior to the effective date of our current standard checked baggage fees, please refer to Delta's previous checked baggage page for more details.
