Here's how to get freebies from an airline if your luggage doesn't show up within 20 minutes of landing

FREQUENT flyers know how annoying it is having to wait around for your luggage to appear after you get off a plane.

But one airline is offering passengers freebies if their luggage doesn't show up within 20 minutes of them exiting the plane.

Delta Air Lines provides all passengers with a guarantee that if their checked bag doesn't arrive at the carousel in 20 minutes or less, they will receive 2,500 bonus miles.

The miles can be put towards free awards such as airline tickets, business and first-class upgrades, and luxury products.

Passengers who use the airline, which operates up to 13 daily flights from the UK to the US, simply have to fill out a form within three days of their flight.

The offer is only available on domestic flights within the US, so Brits with connecting flights might be able to take advantage.

Naam Wynn, a money expert who shares tips on social media, made a Tiktok video to reveal the advice.

In the video, he is talking to an airport worker.

Naam said: "Hi, I've been waiting for 30 minutes, but I haven't seen my bag."

The airport worker said: "Sorry to hear that, but we're a little bit backed up. It should come soon."
