    Operating carrier’s allowance applies, so DL’s in this case. Details at

    You may get additional allowance if you have VS status, but remember that VS status translates – at most – to DL Gold, which is rather middle of the road in terms of baggage allowance and other perks.

    This is the least explained question on redemptions. It does seem to vary a lot but I note that Qantas redemptions on air nz or jetstar both come with a checked in bag. My experience generally is that a bag is included across the board but it’s risky to rely on that and worth checking with the issuing airline.

    Flew from BZE-ATL on Delta three weeks ago and struggled to find the answer before we flew. Virgin chat told me I got 23kg one day, then I saw something that made me wonder so asked again the next day – and they said I got nothing. The second chat was correct – we had to pay at the airport ($30 per checked bag) as the site/app wouldn’t let us pay beforehand. Price was the same though.
