Delta Air Lines offers passengers the chance to check-in to their flight up to 24 hours beforehand via the online service. This advance check-in offers travelers the chance to avoid at least one chore at the airport. Online check-in also provides travelers advance access in selecting seating options.
Delta's online check-in service offers multiple benefits for travelers. This service takes some of the time out of getting through the airport and onto a flight. Travelers can even print out their boarding passes or use an eBoarding Pass delivered to their mobile device. The digital pass is more environmentally friendly and reduces paper waste. However, the eBoarding Pass may only be accepted at some airports.
Online check-in also permits travelers to select a desired seat, if they have not already. Because travelers can access the check-in up to 24 hours in advance, this means they have a much greater selection of seats from which to choose. Check-in may also ask travelers to select whether or not they will have carry-on luggage or checked luggage. If they need to request more weight allowance or add another bag, doing so online is usually less expensive than paying the cost at the airport counter.
