Delta waiving fees for baggage, pets in cabin for cities in path of Hurricane Florence

Delta Air Lines says it is temporarily waiving all fees for checked baggage and pets in the airplane cabin for flights to and from designated cities in the path of Hurricane Florence.

“We understand that customers have enough to worry about when you’ve got an impending hurricane to impact the area where you live. This is just one less thing that they have to worry about,” said Delta spokesman Michael Thomas.

The baggage and pet in cabin fees are being waived Sept. 10-17 on flights to and from Savannah; Charleston and Myrtle Beach, S.C.; Jacksonville, New Bern and Wilmington, N.C.; Newport News and Norfolk, Virg.

There is a limit to how much checked baggage an aircraft can carry, Delta noted, and some luggage may not be able to make it on the same flight and could be put on a later flight.

Atlanta-based Delta is also lifting the cap on the number of pets allowed in the cabin per flight in and out of those cities during that period.

However, pet carriers must still be able to fit comfortably under the seat and the pets cannot roam around the airplane cabin.
