Delta International baggage fees

We're traveling Economy Comfort Class on Delta from Jacksonville, changing planes at JFK and ending in Copenhagen, Denmark. Do we get to check in two free bags each?

Try reading the baggage rules on the Delta Airlines website. They should tell you what the baggage limitations are.

According to Delta's website you get 2 free checked bags on flights from the US to Europe. If you are on a code-share then the operating airlines rules apply.

Not sure why you are asking as the policy seems very clear on the web site.

You are NOT in Business /First so you get 1 checked bag free each.

That's not correct for tickets whose origin or ultimate destination is the US. For those cases US DOT rules apply (14 CFR 399.87), and the baggage rules of the First Marketing Carrier apply to all flights on the ticket. If code shares are involved, it's the Marketing Carrier's rules that apply.
