And all those kiosks will be paid for via the $15 first checked bag fees.

Okay, I couldn't resist that one. As long as there are actual Delta employees there to assist should the system go down or to put a destination tag on the check suitcase, I'm all for speeding things along.

From family experience, though, when things go wrong, they go REALLY wrong, so I hope eliminating "back-up" isn't a cost-saving plan...

The new technology is a few weeks old now. Best feature is the print boarding pass now button that is on the second screen. No need to scroll through all of that TSA information and ask if you need bags checked. Some kiosks are running a little slow as the computers are a little weak to handle the new software.


The only valid opinions are those based in facts

This sounds a lot like NW's system, especially the DL.com feature of a profile which NW has had for a few years now.

That may be. However, the plan is combine the best from both websites and make it the very best in the industry. No US carrier has ever had the capabilities to allow curbside International Check-in - Until now by Delta. (see article)

Well it's definately fewer screens, but man oh man those are some sluggish systems.

I used them at BOS, CVG and PHL over the past week and it didn't save me any time - just a few clicks.
