Carry-on Baggage - complimentary

so that's easy.

Then we get to the checked luggage:

   First Checked Bag - Within U.S. and Canada: $25 USD
                       U.S./Canada and Caribbean: $25 USD
                       International: Complimentary

I won't bother with the other details (like size, second checked bag), but my question is - it's ambiguous (to me) - is Canada TO the US $25 or complimentary?

in North America flights across the Canadian and US border are rarely called international. But double check because occasionally, they are. When you see a list that includes "Canada/US" as one item and "International" as another, I would say that is very clear. Your bag will cost $25. –  Kate Gregory Aug 27 '12 at 18:29
    
Some bits of the Caribbean also count as "domestic" on many US airlines, but I don't think Mexico ever does. Airlines use some rather odd definitions...! –  Gagravarr Jan 30 '13 at 21:19
    
+1 Kate Gregory. Large Canadian airports will have three sections: Domestic, USA and International. –  DJClayworth Feb 1 '13 at 2:29

Within US and Canada its $25, and they don't mention specifically that its only from the US to Canada, so I would assume that its both ways. To the best of my knowledge flights to/from Canada are considered "domestic" for all terms and purposes, so I see no reason why the luggage would be an exception.

just found this: airtravel.about.com/od/luggageandpackingadvice/a/dlbags.htm which seems to disagree, but then it's about.com, rather than Delta, so grain of salt and all that... :/ –  Mark Mayo Aug 27 '12 at 17:52

Does Delta have a domestic Canadian flight, i.e.: Delta flying between two Canadian airports? I don't think they have. –  littleadv Aug 27 '12 at 17:53
    
Sadly, you were right, they insisted it's a "Domestic flight" :/ –  Mark Mayo Jan 30 '13 at 21:07

"within US and Canada" -> not crossing the border, so your departure and destination are in the same country (say Atlanta to Buffalo, NY)
"U.S./Canada and Caribbean" -> departure and destination in different countries (so say New York to Montreal).

See my comment on the other answer - Delta confirms that a Canada -> US flight is a DOMESTIC flight. Weasels, but that's how they record it. –  Mark Mayo Jan 31 '13 at 9:01
