I haven’t flown Delta in decades. Does Delta really not let you gatecheck a powerchair or scooter?
From Delta’s website:
We need 48 hours advance notice and at least one hour advance check-in on the day of departure if you:
* Require the packaging of a wheelchair battery for shipment as checked luggage (one hour advance check-in at the ticket counter).
We appreciate your checking powered equipment that may require disassembly at the ticket counter so we can arrange for proper handling. You may use our wheelchair equipment after checking your personal wheelchair.
If you use a powerchair or scooter and fly Delta, tell me that it ain’t so!
