Are you planning to fly with Delta Air Lines? Discover everything you need to know about Delta Air Lines baggage allowance, restrictions, fees and charges.


Delta Air Lines Carry-On Baggage

Delta Air Lines passengers are permitted to bring onboard the aircraft one piece of cabin baggage, plus one personal item, such as a briefcase, camera bag or small backpack. Your carry-on baggage should fit into the overhead bins or under the seat in front of you.

Carry-on baggage may not exceed 114cm in combined length, width and height; this includes any handles and wheels – with the exception of small musical instruments that fit in the overhead compartment space or under-seat space available at the time of boarding.

Baggage must meet carry on size limits (approximately 56 x 35 x  23 cm).

Due to limited overhead space, Delta Air Lines passengers travelling on flights with 50 seats or less are only permitted to carry one personal item on board the aircraft.

Limits apply on certain routes. Visit the Delta Air Lines website for more information.

CARRY-ON WEIGHT RESTRICTIONS:

No maximum weight applies to carry-on baggage.

However, this varies across airports. Visit the Delta Air Lines website for more information.
