If youre heading home for Christmas this December, Delta will let you pack all your presents and the tree to stash them under for a fee, of course.
The airline has added Christmas trees for limited release liability shipping within the 50 states, which means that passengers can check the evergreens, but Delta wont shoulder as much responsibility if a bough snaps. In order to fly, trees must be covered from top to trunk, and if youre shipping to Hawaii, it will need to pass the standard agriculture inspection. Moreover, all the usual baggage fees apply (as much as $300 each way for oversized items), so if you and yours tend to trim the tallest evergreen on the lot, we suggest purchasing the plant after baggage claim.
Predictably, all four of those airlines remain Scrooge-like about the one present wed really like Santa to throw in his sleigh: Free checked baggage, so we have enough space to pack all the goodies were giving away (plus the gifts we hope to receive).
