Allowed check-in luggage (Delta)

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello VJ members Merry Christmas! I am presently looking for a flight via Delta Airlines going to Melbourne, Florida. I want to leave on the 30th of December with my daughter. I packed three 23 kilos checked-in luggages and two 7 kilos handcarry. Are we okay with this? And what is the most that I can bring with me as money allowance? We are on a very tight budget. Will 200 dollars be enough? Done with our CFO and sticker. Anything more I need to prepare? International roaming sim card? Do's and dont's. Suggestions will be of great help. Thank you so much.

Another thing. When I look on the websites for flights schedules, the last leg of the flight, Atlanta, Georgia to Melbourne Florida, have no available seats. What's in there are "preferred seats". I have no idea how this works. :help:

Each airline differs with their allowances for checked and carry on luggage. You will have to check with Delta's site on what is allowed weight wise.

I would call Delta. Does it have to be with them?

If not, then I'd look at websites like onetravel.com (if I'm allowed to post that link). That's how I booked the flight from the USA to PI when I went to visit my Fiancee.

Sometimes you can get better deals by going on the sites like the one I mentioned. How old is your daughter? Does she take up a seat or is she young enough to sit in your lap the whole time?

$200 USD should be more than enough. If it's 200 PHP then it definitely won't be enough to even buy food while your at the layover airport etc.

Enjoy your flight and I hope you have a safe journey.

Do a search on the Delta Web site for luggage. The number of bags and weight of each depends upon ticket class. Typically its 2 23 kilo bags per person on an economy ticket. With your daugher if she is under 2 and has an infant ticket which is 10% of the adult fare than the allowance is significantly less. But if she is over 2 then your okay with 2 bags for her. So a total of 4 bags.

how much money can you bring? You can leave Phil with Php 10,000 and for other currency up to $10,000 per person. Since your on a tight budget that should not be an issue.


Love forever,

All I know for Delta is that each person is allowed one luggage of 23 kilos & the second one you have to pay for it. This is what I have done when I went through Delta airline to Morocco last Year so I had to pay $50 for it but I heard that the price went up to $200 for the 2nd one. You can also call the airline & find out how much the money you will pay for your 2nd luggage because I may be wrong. Have a safe flight

It appears from Delta's website that no excess baggage is allowed on your flight from November 16 to January 16. Delta website.

You can book preferred seats for the last leg of your flight. However, they cost more than economy-class seats. Preferred seats have four more inches of legroom than economy-class seats and the preferred seats recline more.

Take some things out that you can purchase in the states. Then get 2 bags as clise to 23 kilo's without going over. Then get two carry on's that you can fit the rest of your stuff in and carry those on and put in the overhead. And of course 1 large purse. Make sure all the electronic, foods, liquids in your checked bag for smoother flying.

You already have a seat for your last leg to Melbourne, there is just no economy seats you can switch your seats too. Always can ask fir a better seat at the ticket counter. The preferred seats are economy comfirt and emergency exits and they cost a little more. You can't go in the emergency exit with your daughter if under 16.

You won't need any money unless your overwight on your bags in manila. Or if you want extra snacks/food

At your connections.. 200.00 is plenty. You can get a good meal for the two of you for 15-30 dollars in atlanta. Good luck.

Preferred seats are not Economy Comfort/Economy Plus seats. Preferred seats usually cost about $12 to $24 extra. These are seats that people like to book first, such as exit row seats, economy seats closest to the front of the plane, and some window/aisle seats. Like I said, they are not the Economy Comfort seats that have 4 inches of extra leg room.

Economy Comfort seats from Philippines to America could cost you about $300 extra total. You have to buy the upgrade for each leg of the flight.

If you're on a tight budget bring food!

A bottle of water costs $3.50 to $4.50 at almost all airports.

A weenie half can of Pringles (potato chip snacks in a can) are $4.50.

You are allowed to bring most foods but no liquids and avoid any gels like gummy worms (seriously).

Since you are not allowed to bring liquids you sort of get stuck but there's a way around it. Bring an empty bottle--empty. Ask in airports and you will always find a water bubbler--fill it there once inside security.

In my opinione it's not worth buying anything to eat in any airport except Seoul which is an unusual exception. Even there the kiosks are horribly expersive. But in Seoul airport one the upper floor (it takes a bit of looking around to find it) there are a row of restaurants of Korean food that are amazingly wonderful and downright cheap but you need to transfer your currency to Korean Wong.

With the exception of Seoul I've resigned myself to bringing oodles of snack food to and from.
