My wife is traveling from PDX to DEL on above mentioned flights on a single ticket. Will she be issued boarding passes for both the flights at PDX, and will the checked-in luggage booked to final destination.
What formalities she will have to undergo at AMS and how she should transfer to 9W 233 from 9W 8037
Yes, she will be given both boarding passes in Portland. All she has to do in Amsterdam is walk from her arrival gate to her departure gate. Note that her Portland-Amsterdam flight will be operated by Delta.
Hi,

I am travelling from Houston TX to London city airport via Amsterdam schipol, my flight is with klm throughout my journey. Do I need to first clear passport control on AMS before boarding the flight to LCY? I'm aware my bags are safe from USA to U.K. I'm just confused if I would be going thru passport control first in AMS before boarding my flight.
Since you are not entering the Schengen Area you do not go through passport control in Amsterdam.
I arrive into AMS by KLM from Chicago at 06.45 and have an onward connection on Jet airways to Mumbai at 11.25 hrs. As I am waitlisted for an upgrade, I have been advised to go to the Jet Airways transfer desk to collect my boarding pass for the Mumbai flight. (The entire itenerary in on a Jet airways ticket). Where do I go once I exit the aircraft at AMS?
Look at the monitors for your departure gate. The Jet Airways transfer desk will be near the gate.
On 26 June, we will arrive at AMS from IAD on United 946, scheduled to arrive at 7:15. We have booked KLM 1185, scheduled to depart at 8:25. We will have no checked baggage. Can we learn the concourses and gates? Is this a do-able connection?
You won't know your gates until the day of your flight. You have a chance if you check in for your KLM flight online before you leave the US.
We will be doing that. We also run well! Thank you.
I will be arriving in AMS via Jet airways at 7:55 AM from YYZ with 1 checked bag. My connection flight to GOT leaves at 9:50 AM with KLM. Both flights were booked with one ticket. Is this going to be enough time to make the connection? and also would I have to go through security? Also would I have to claim my luggage at AMS and re check it in at KLM?
Yes, that should be enough time. You will not have to go through security. Just Schengen Entry passport control and to your departure gate.
One ticket through delta (but short hop is operated by KLM) with only one hour - will this work?
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Elderly travelers how far is it to walk from arrival to departure gates, bags through checked, do we have to go through passport control? Thank you.
Yes, you will go through Schengen Entry Passport Control in Amsterdam. Walks in Amsterdam are generally short.
I am arriving from BUD on KLM at 8.15 am my flight AA to DFW lives at 10.15-do I have sufficient
time to make a connection?Depart August 30.
With no checked bags that's possible but it will be really difficult if you have checked bags to transfer.
my wife returning to us /green card/permanent resident/flying from Moscow to Amsterdam to minneaplois/.one booking what does she need to do in Amsterdam ?has 4 hour layover// thank you
All she has to do in Amsterdam is go through security, then go to the indicated gate where there will be some US Security questions and then she will go to the actual gate that they tell her. She has plenty of time.
Traveling from U.S. changing planes in Amsterdam to Edinburgh. Entire flight booked through Delta. Delta told me I need to claim my bags in AMS, go through customs, & a KLM representative would be on the other side to check my bag to EDI. I asked about Non schengen/scone gen, and the rep said he never heard of it. Help! What do I REALLY do?
You do not have to do anything with your bags in Amsterdam. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Delta rep really has no clue what she's talking about.
Thank you.
