Endeavor Air is a US airline that flies passenger flights. The airline is based at Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport and operates regional flights from the US to several destinations on the behalf of Delta brand, Delta Connection.
Endeavor Air is fully-owned by Delta and all Endeavor flights are operated under the Delta Connection brand. This means that the airline never actually operates with its own brand and — if passengers didn't know that Endeavor Air flies on behalf of Delta Connection — they wouldn't know they're on an Endeavor Air flight.
The airline first launched in 1985 as Express Airlines I and has since gone through two rebrands. The first rebrand was in 2002 when it renamed itself Pinnacle Airlines and the second rebrand was in 2012, when Pinnacle Airlines parent company filed for bankruptcy and Delta Air Lines bought out the airline and rebranded it as Endeavor Air, which is what it's still known as today.
Although the airline's main base is at Minneapolis-Saint Paul International, due to the amount of ground it covers across North America and Central America, it also has other hubs at Detroit Metropolitan Airport, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport, LaGuardia Airport and John F. Kennedy International Airport
Endeavor Air has a different baggage policy for carry-on and checked baggage. Your baggage allowance will depend on the fare ticket you purchased.
Passengers in Economy Class are allowed to bring one piece of carry-on baggage and one personal item. This baggage must be no heavier than 7 kg (15 lbs) or exceed the dimensions of 22” x 14” x 9” (56 cm x 35 cm x 23 cm).
Passengers in First Class are allowed to bring two pieces of carry-on baggage and one personal item. The baggage size and weight limit is the same in both classes.
Free checked baggage allowance will depend on the fare of the ticket that passengers purchase.
For example and as guidance:
Passengers with a Basic Economy (the lowest fare) ticket will not be entitled to any free checked baggage, regardless of whether the flight is international or domestic.
Passengers with a First Class (the highest fare) ticket are entitled to two free checked bags with a maximum weight of 32 kg per piece, regardless of whether the flight is international or domestic.
There are several other fares in between Basic Economy and First Class, each with different free checked baggage allowances. Passengers can view how much free checked baggage they can bring on their flight on the Alternative Airlines website at the time of booking or on their e-ticket after booking.
Baggage is available to add after booking, however, it's often better value to choose a fare that has checked baggage already includes rather than adding baggage separately.
