AMEX Companion, free bags, 5 passengers

First Time Post, long time lurker.

Have AMEX Delta Gold card, no status. Want to use companion certificate in flying a group of five. According to Delta.com:

"Your Companion Certificate can only be used on itineraries with two passengers. You will have an opportunity to purchase tickets for additional passengers after you finish redeeming your Companion Certificate."

It is my understanding that in order to get the first bag free, all passengers must be on the same reservation.

Does this mean that only two will get free bags if I use the companion certificate? (Myself as cardholder and companion)

Is there any way to ensure free bags for my group? Thanks

Yes, only those on the same PNR as the primary card holder will get free bags.

If you want free bags for all I would suggest consolidating into two bags each being the limit of 50lbs. Other than that get another card in an other PAX name.
