What is the detailed level required?

Does the message arrow must point to a actual method? Or a simple label describing the message flow will be enough?

The arrow must point to the object receiving the message. The method name called is the label for the arrow.

You can just say 'delete'. Look at the sequence diagrams in the case study at the end of Cade's book.

One question related to Sequence diagrams. Normally Sequence diagrams are drawn for one Use Case. How can I show included Use Cases in Sequence diagram ? e.g. Showing price Itinerary in Prepare Itinerary Sequence Diagram. Or Log in use case in Prepare Itinerary Sequence Diagram when user is not logged in.

Consider Paul's rocket mass heater.
