We will be flying to Jamaica on Delta for the first time. When I looked at the website, it seemed that with flights to the carribean, there is no charge for 1 checked bag. My TA says there is a charge but I don't read the info on the website that way. Please help! We are not going first class or using some special card.....just economy! Thanks!
Now I feel better about our decision to fly US Airways instead of Delta this December. I was justifying in my mind that the US Airways airfare was cheaper even with the baggage charge. Now I see that Delta charges also.
MikeMonica is right - it is $25 for the first bag per person.... I am also traveling Delta in October and I looked into this as well. It stinks... you would think that for the amount you pay for a ticket a checked bag would be included, but I expected it.
I have a question regarding this as well - I was thinking about this this morning. Everyone says that on a connecting flight we have to get our checked bags, go through customs, and re-check the bags. This "re-checking" of the bags doesn't make us pay the $25 per bag AGAIN - does it?
No, you have checked your bags through to your final destination when you left Jamaica. This check in is just to get it to your connecting flight after going through immigrations and customs, and to actually look in your bag if you are one of the people they pick. In 4 years coming back through Charlotte, I have never seen them stop a soul, the guy/gal takes your form and says welcome back.
We are flying american or should I say unamerican. we have to pay $30 for our second checked bag on the way down and $30 for our second checked bag on the way back. I just found out since we have to spend the night in Miami that we have to pay for the bags leaving Montego bay and then again in Miami the next morning when we leave HUGE RIP OFF
On the way back if you don't have a non stop you have to recheck your bag, but there is not an additional fee.
Are you talking about with delta or american? I called american last night and two different agents advised me we have to pay in montego bay and again the next morning leaving Miami since we will be there more than 12 hours
I am pretty sure Delta does not include the Caribbean in their "international" list for first checked bag free. Our booking states that we will have to pay a checked bag fee of $25 for the first bag, second bag is $40. Business Elite class gets first bag free. We booked in December for our trip in June.
At least, so far anyway, they are not charging for carry on bags. It is looking like that is the next big fee source for the airlines. Some have begun charging for carry on already.
