This flight is in Delta’s basic economy cabin, which includes one free carry-on. A checked bag will cost you $60 and you can upgrade to the main cabin for $50 to choose your seat.

Similarly, you can find the same priced Delta flight to Orlando out of Detroit on February 1, where the same fare cabin rules apply.
