The Delta app isn't always rightEach Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip come from reader Tim from Los Angeles, who says:

“I recently flew Delta LAX>ATL>CDG. Upon arriving at CDG I checked my Delta app and saw my bag was ‘at carousel.’ But after watching everyone grab their bags, clearly it wasn’t. Was it lost, stolen? When I switched to my laptop from my phone I got the real story: It was at carousel at ATL. It was still in Atlanta but the Delta app didn’t bother to tell me. It would have been nice to have a nine-hour headstart retrieving it. Tip: Don’t rely on the Delta app for luggage info.”

Thanks, Tim. For more checked luggage tips:

    What is the best free phone app to use for tanslating Mexican Spanish (not Spain Spanish) into English? If you don’t have an answer, it might be a good topic to cover a.s.a.p.

    The Delta app is more often wrong than right in my opinion. My app told me my flight was cancelled a couple of weeks ago in MSP. Turns out it wasn’t. I even checked with the Delta Help Desk and she believed the app over her own computer and rebooked me on a flight out the next day. Turns out when I got to the airport the next day, the flight left on time. It was the second leg of my flight that was canceled. Not the first leg. Filed a complaint with Delta and demanded they reimburse me for my hotel. $199. They called me on my cell and agreed to send a check. I do not trust that app at all.
