Delta Airlines Codeshare Partners
If you are traveling as a Delta customer on one of our codeshare partners, check in with that codeshare carrier for their security check-in requirements. Sometimes the airline might be able to assist with fast passes for First Class passengers or those with special needs such as travelling with eldery, small children or those requiring medical assistance.
