Quick question, does delta still have an interline agreement with Alaska? Best route I was looking at for family would have to be 2 separate tickets, 1 revenue ticket through alaska, and 1 award on delta. Seeing if that’s even possible?
I think they do, since theyre sort of still frenemies – for now. It also depends on whether the check in agent will interline bags for you when checking in. I’ve never had a problem with international carriers but I dont usually have this issue on domestic US flights.
If they say no, how would the luggage re-check be handled? The connection would take place domestically in Seattle. Would the luggage have to be picked up at baggage claim or is there another way to get luggage to Delta from Alaska?
You’d have to pick it up in SEA and go back to check in and check the bag.
Also, if you pick up at baggage claim and then re-check the bag at the check in counter, you’d almost definitely have to pay the baggage fee twice. (Unless you have elite status or an airline credit card or are in first class or have some other way to waive the fee.)
