Track Your Bags with AA, Delta & More

Bag 720x360Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Karol:

“I’m not sure if you have previously written about tracking bags via the airline websites? With all the delays and cancelations lately it is sure helpful.

Recently I noticed the ‘track your bag‘ link on AA mobile site. I wanted to track, as my daughter flew standby and missed her flight. I was wondering if her luggage went ahead. I was able to plug in her PNR# and track her bags that arrived four hours before she did. I wasn’t aware of this option and neither were my friends I mentioned it to! Not sure if the other airlines let you track your own bag, but I thought it sure came in handy!”

Yes, Delta started this trend, and then AA followed. It’s a great feature. Thanks, Karol!

  1. Delta has an app for tracking the checked bags. Using the Delta app you scan the checked baggage receipt. The app will advise you the location of your bag(s). Returning home from a Alaska fishing trip some of my friends viewing their Delta app discovered their luggage was not on the plane. They were able to follow the routing and knew when their bags would arrive home.
