Quick question for all you DL Medallions --
I am traveling within the next week with a few companions...
I called and had the Res. Agent split the PNR so my upgrade would clear. I had 2 agents assure me that my companions would still enjoy 2 free checked bags, SKy Priority etc. but I am still skeptical because their booking is not labeled "Sky Priority." We really do not want to pay $140 in baggage fees....
Will the agents at the airport manually override the fees?
Yes, they will. Make sure your companions accompany you in the Sky Priority lane at check-in, so you can check in with an agent. Once you explain the situation to the agent, they will waive the fees for the checked baggage. If you're really concerned about it, you could call the Medallion desk and have them put a remark in the PNR of your travel companions.
