Delta recently released a smartphone app for keeping an eye on your luggage. It lets you track your bags from the moment they pass through security all the way to the baggage claim on the other side.
Enter or scan the luggage tag number and see if your bags are on the same plane as you are. Of course, you have to pay for Delta’s in-flight wi-fi service to access the data.
Other features of this app include:
- flight and gate change information
- mobile check-in and baggage fee payment
- seat changes
- upgrade and standby lists
Plus, you can access airport maps and review aircraft statistics.
The app is available for the iPhone and Android phones now and coming soon for Windows phones and Blackberry devices.
Knowing your bags are headed to California when you’re headed to Florida may not be a lot of comfort at 30,000+ feet, but at least you won’t have to hang around baggage claim waiting for a bag that’s not coming. Instead, you can head right to a customer service representative and figure out your options.
