Delta wouldn't check my bag when I was 55 minutes early for my flight. 60 is the cut off if you don't check bags online. Apparently if you check the box in online checkin you can check bags 50 minutes before. The response? Delta "I'm sorry sir. There's nothing I can do. Your bag would never make it to the plane". Me: "But if I had checked that box online?" Delta: "Oh, then your bag would make it. For sure."Worthless Delta Ticket Agent Alicia at JFK. Backed up by equally worthless Marina V, her supervisor.
