Links to Media Baggage Fees by USA Airline

Click on the airline name to go to their media rate page

!!!!! Please note that airlines change their minds on the rules and what to charge on a regular basis!!!!!

Delta
Look for "Media Bags" almost at the bottom.
Delta has the best Lithium battery policy of the major airlines.
Go here, then scroll down to
"Size Limits for Lithium Batteries" about halfway down.

American Airlines
Then click: Audio or visual equipment.
In short, AA is a bit of a pain.
Send an email requesting media rate here media.bags@aa.com - You MUST request this in advance!!!
AND!!! You must ask the agent to look for the SSR/OSI in your record at the airport. But even with this, you may be charged stupid money. Then you have to contact customer service to get a refund.
Go here then scroll down and find: Media Bag program, to read what is allowed.

ALSO!!! American does not allow ANY Lithium batteries of any kind in checked luggage!!!!
And very limited carry on of Lithium batteries.

Southwest Airlines
Look for "Large Media Camera Equipment" about 5 lines down.

Frontier
The link will open a PDF.
Then look for "Media Equipment".

United
The easiest of all these airlines, takes you right to the section.

Also note that the webmasters for these airlines move/change the URLs for media bags too.
So the links may not be correct.
