I have a pet bird coming to Albuquerque today on United, I'm just wondering where I go to pick her up..
I will arrive at IAD from Tampa at concourse D at 4:05 p.m. I need to get to concourse B to catch the SAS flight to Copenhagen at 5:15 p.m. What is the best way to travel between the two concourses? The luggage is checked through, so we won't be lugging anything. Do we walk, take the AeroTrain or Mobil Lounge shuttle? Which is most efficient (in case thunderstorms force us to rush)?
The Mobile Lounge or AeroTrain are about the same. The Mobile Lounge is slower but with less walking and AeroTrain is faster but with more walking.
Hello! Can you tell me if American Airlines and Delta baggage areas are close to each other?
Thanks
In what airport?
Hi, I'm from the UK and I plan on getting a Delta flight from Grenada to ATL, arriving at 8:15pm. Then I get a connecting flight at 7:15am the next morning. Since ATL will be my first point of entry I know that I have to collect my luggage to clear customs.

Do you know if delta will allow me to check in my luggage for the connecting morning flight, immediately after clearing customs? I don't want to look after my luggage during the night. Also, do you know if wrap-a-bag is still in service and stores luggage?
Flying Delta from Louisville to Atlanta then to Puerto Vallarta. Do we have to get our bags in Atlanta to go though customs? My husband is freaking about our short change planes time
There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
Thanks, appreciate!

No, you will have to check your bags the next morning. Yes, as far as I can tell Wrap-A-Bag is still operational and offers luggage storage.
Thank you for the information. Much appreciated!

Do you know what the security is like for baggage at ATL? I've read a couple incidents online (link below) about baggage theft from the baggage carousel. Do you know if these incidents are common? Is there a lot of theft in the terminals?

on Aug 6th will be arriving in Seattle, from EL Paso, Texas on Southwest 4601 through Phoenix. at 12:45 pm. Next flight will be Alaska 71 to Juneau at 3:30 pm. will there be enough time to retrieve baggage and make it to Alaska ticket counter to check in and how far away is Alaska ticket counter from Baggage claim ?. thanks
Yes, that should be enough time. It's not too far from the Southwest baggage claim to the Alaska check in counters.
thank you , hope we make it. !!!
Is a woman's purse considered one of the 2 carry on items allowed?
It is considered the "personal item" that must fit under the seat in front of you.
Flying in from AMS to SEA with transfer/ layover in DTW. We have 2 1/2 hours at DTW to get from Delta to Alaska air. Are we correct in our assumption that Alaska is in a different terminal? Is this enough time? What is the procedure? Is it clearly laid out for us? We have global entry. Will that help? Also, we have access to the Delta sky club. Is there a club in the other terminal, since Delta subbed our final leg to Alaska Air? Any helpful tips appreciated
Yes, Alaska is in a different terminal. You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, take the shuttle bus to the North Terminal, check your bags with Alaska, and go through security. It is NOT very clearly marked out because very few connections at DTW require changing terminals. There is no Delta club in the North Terminal.
I will be flying into IAH on United Airlines with long guns in a secured hard case. I will check the gun case in with the checked baggage. My question: when my flight arrives in Houston will my gun case come down the carousel with the other baggage or will I need to go to another location to claim it.
