I'm flying Delta into, and more importantly, out of Sitka in June.
I'm wondering, since it is fairly new that they fly to Sitka, what their policies are about fish boxes, and whether they even have their own gate/counter personnel, or use the same staff as Alaska Air?
In particular, Alaska Air will let you tape together two fish boxes of the same size to treat as one piece of checked luggage (provided it is not overweight). Can I do this on Delta?
I'm not a super-bonus-whatever club member on either airline, so I pay for each piece of checked luggage. So unless I have more than 50lbs of processed fish, I'd like it to be one checked item. I am bringing two 24.5"x11"x8" "25lb. boxes to reuse.
Also any reason they wouldn't allow any fish that won't fit in those two boxes in a soft cooler as a carry-on (assuming it fits within carry-on size limits? (Fish will be frozen, vacuum sealed, with gel-pack ice).
Thanks in advance for any insight into Delta's practices.
