DL Kiosks In LHR Terminal 4?

I have scoured the Heathrow websites and Delta websites and cannot determine conclusively whether DL has kiosks for check-in at Heathrow Terminal 4. Do they? If so, can I check-in online and then just drop my bag (such as in ATL)? It appears that everything is common-use, so I wasn't sure if there were common-use kiosks or if I should expect to wait in line to check in with a human. Also, what sort of exit formalities are there when departing the UK? Passport check or just routine security screening, and that's it? Realistically, when should I arrive at the airport for a flight departure time of 14:00 on a Sunday? I don't want to rush to the airport and end up sitting in the airport for two hours twiddling my thumbs.

Thanks!

Yes there are. There are self-check-in kiosks just in front of the DL and CO ticket counters - they are not exclusively DL ones though (common-use ones for several airlines).

Just security checks.

QF is one of a few airlines from T4 that don't have check-in kiosks. From memory, in addition to BA and KL who have long had them, KQ, JJ, CO, DL, NW all use them. I think Kingfisher also now uses them. Not sure about UL or KM.....haven't been in T4 recently.

Maybe you were then since most of zones A and C have them.  Wink Zone B used to be full of BA kiosks, but now is used by QF so the kiosks have been removed (as I was recently informed). I haven't worked in T4 since the last set of BA flight moves, so have relied on my colleagues who have been there to keep me informed. However prior to BA moving, there were BA kiosks on zones B and D and BAA commom use kiosks on zones A and C.
