Delta Air Lines is one of the most well-known American air carriers and is also America's oldest continuing airlines (founded in 1924). In addition to an extensive network of domestic routes, Delta operates long-haul flights to over 60 countries around the world and was a founding member of the SkyTeam alliance. The Delta website offers a simple menu where travelers can see details of their reservations, search for new flights, view the flight status of arriving and departing flights, check in online and print boarding passes, or book vacation packages combining Delta flights with hotels and/or rental cars. In contrast with many competing airlines, Delta's baggage allowance isn't immediately accessible; travelers must to to the “Traveling with Us” pull-down menu to find information. Delta has baggage fees for most flights within North America ($25.00 for the first checked bag, $35.00 for the second), but offers a free checked bag with most intercontinental flights. Accepted carry-on dimensions are 22x14x9 inches. Delta also operates the famous Skymiles frequent flyer program which lets users accumulate miles in their flights or purchases via Skymiles Shopping and redeem them for experiences, discounts, or flights. Members can also use their Skymiles to access the Delta Sky Club lounges or purchase an annual membership for $450.00.
Ciro Delta, in my opinion, is one of the better choices for flying domestic in the US. They are professional, timely, and the fleet seems a bit more modern than some of the other major American airlines (which shall go nameless, for now). They also have a pretty reasonable baggage fees policy, again, compared to other national carriers. Yes, they charge $25.00 for the first checked bag on domestic flights but they do let you check a free bag on most international and intercontinental flights and bring on a carry on bag and personal item, so light packers might be able to skip the baggage fees!Delete
