As of 2015, Delta allows Delta One, First Class and Business Class passengers to check at least two bags at no charge. In some cases, Delta One passengers may check three bags at no charge. Coach passengers are allowed two paid checked bags.

Delta's list of prohibited items includes alcohol, sports equipment and weapons. Some unusual items include dry ice, which is allowed in some circumstances, in limited quantities, and e-cigarettes, which are permitted in carry-on luggage but may not be used while aboard.

Personal care items and other liquids and creams brought aboard must follow the 3-1-1 liquids rule set up by the TSA. No container may hold more than 3.4 ounces and all items must fit in a one-quart sized clear, plastic, zip-top bag that must be screened separately from the carry-on.

The TSA makes exceptions for medications, baby formula and baby food, but passengers must declare these items and may go through additional screening. The TSA rules are constantly changing, so it's best to check tsa.gov before traveling.
