Delta waives fees for bags, pets-in-cabin at airports in Hurricane Michael’s path

Delta Air Lines is temporarily waiving fees for checked baggage and pets in the cabin on flights at certain airports in the path of Hurricane Michael.

Atlanta-based Delta is waiving all baggage fees including overweight and oversize fees and pet-in-cabin fees for flights to and from Panama City, Pensacola, Tallahassee and Fort Walton Beach, Fla.; and Mobile, Al. through Oct. 12.

The airline is also temporarily lifting the limit on pets in the cabin on each flight, though the pets must be able to fit comfortably in a carrier that fits under the seat and cannot roam around the cabin.

At the same time, Delta is restricting unaccompanied minor travel through Oct. 12 on flights to and through the same cities.

The airline also Tuesday expanded a waiver of change fees to more airports for passengers who have flights booked to airports in the path of Hurricane Michael.

Passengers with flights booked to, from or through Albany, Augusta or Valdosta, Ga; Dothan or Mobile, Ala.; Fort Walton Beach, Panama City, Pensacola or Tallahassee, Fla. can make a change to their flight itinerary without paying certain change fees.

The airline previously announced it was temporarily capping certain air fares due to Hurricane Michael.
