  • Layover @ Amsterdam
    Nov 9, 2014
    1 hour layover in Amsterdam. Flying Delta Los Angeles, CA to Stuttgart. Will I need to go through customs and claim baggage? Do I have enough time?


    Your transfer time should be enough; however, I suggest that you open, click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS'& scroll down to the detailed text - particularly Arriving/Connecting Procedures & Transfer/Time.


    You will not have to claim your baggage. You will go through Schengen Passport control and security when you enter the Schengen pier of the the terminal for your flight to Stuttgart.


  • I'm flying Moscow-Amsterdam-Seattle-Pullman
    Aug 7, 2014
    Hello everyone! I'm flying from Russia to the USA through Amsterdam and Seattle. I'm not an experienced traveller, so could you please describe the sequence of actions that will take place as soon as I land in Amsterdam (Schiphol)? This is my first trip with connections and I am a bit nervous! Thanks in advance!


    In Amsterdam, since both of your flights are outside Schegen, all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, where you will go through security. When you get to Seattle, you will arrive at the S-Satellite where you will go through US Immigration, collect your baggage, go through US Customs, then re-check your baggage with Alaska Airlines/Horizon who will be operating your flight to Pullman. Then you will go through security and take a few underground trains to your departure gate for your flight to Pullman.
