The changes have seen the cost of checking a bag with Delta increase by $5, from $25 to $30. The cost of checking a second bag is also up $5, from $35 to $40.
Delta is the latest in a string of North American airlines to increase their checked baggage fees in response to rising fuel costs. The trend began with JetBlue increasing their prices in August, followed by US airline United Airlines and Canadian airlines WestJet and Air Canada.
There is no need to worry about checked baggage fees if you send your luggage ahead, plus you get to travel luggage-free!
We don't sell cardboard boxes but the 457mm x 457mm x 457mm boxes available here are the best value we've seen and the size is perfect for our service. The pack includes 15 boxes and delivery for under £25. 15 boxes may be a lot but we recommend sharing or giving away what you don't need, the other packs we found which included less boxes were the same price.
