Baggage Tracking on App?

I rarely fly on AC and even even rarer that I would check luggage (any airline), however I have an upcoming trip that requires me to check a bag. For my own peace of mind, can I track my bag on the app like I can on the AA app? On the AA app I can see when the bag has been loaded on the plane and off loaded at the destination.

I know there isn't anything I can do if it doesn't make the plane but still nice to know.

I was on the app the other day and found it lacked much of anything. Kind of like a 90's app if there were apps in the 90's.

Not until DCS migrates to 1A and they push out a new app update.

Not possible. The new app is terrible, but even the old version of the app didnít include a baggage tracking feature.

Lol... No... Like you found out, the app is mostly useless..


Hasn't DL had this feature in their app for at least 4 years now?

Definitely at least 3. And AA had it the last time I flew them, in August.

I would expect to see this feature eventually, it is on the apps of most major US carriers.
