  • Can I bring a hair straightener, hair curler, etc in my checked bag?
    Oct 23, 2016
    Am I allowed to bring a hair straightener and hair curler in my checked bag? I have checked the TSA website and it doesn't say much about it. If you've personally done this please do tell me! personal experience is always best! Let me know your experience. Also i'm flying with Spirit Airlines from OAK to LAX don't know if that info is needed. OH and also i plan on bring a board game (monopoly) with me in my checked bag is that allow? have you ever brought any board games in your checked bag? I plan on also bringing a console mic with me its in it package can i do that with my checked bag? Thank you!


  • Where do i for terminal 3 LAX baggage claim?
    Oct 21, 2016
    Hi, I read that i have to go down stairs to claim my baggage after i arrive at LAX? Wouldn't it take me while to go down there? How is there one rotation carrier luggage thing that will be specially for my plane that i just arrived ine?


    It won't take you long to go downstairs and in fact, everyone has to go down there to exit the terminal. Your flight will be assigned a baggage claim carousel. Other flights may also be assigned the same carousel.


  • Expedia tickets
    Oct 19, 2016
    I booked through Expedia and they told me to print out my itinerary and use it as a ticket. Is this even possible? I am very worried. It has a confirmation number


    Your ticket is tied to your confirmation number. You don't have to print out anything. You will check in either at the airport or online before your departure using your confirmation number.


    Thank you so much. I will try checking in early then I will not stress.


  • Do I need to recheck my baggages?
    Oct 19, 2016
    My husband and I are flying from Montréal to Rome through Philadelphia. Will we need to recheck our baggages and go through customs and security in Philadelphia? First time we not taking a direct flight!


    On your way to Rome you won't have to do anything with your bags in philadelphia as you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal. On the way back, if you are flying the same route, in Philadelphia you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security in Philadelphia.


    Thank you very much!


  • Transiting in Seattle for 1h55 min - Enough Time?
    Oct 18, 2016
    I'm flying into Seattle from Dubai with Emirates and from Seattle to Las Vegas with Alaska Airlines. Transit time will be for 1h55 min. Could i check if that would be enough time and if Emirates will check my baggage all the way to Las Vegas? Thanks so much for the help!


    If both flights are on the same reservation that is just enough time. If both flights are on the same reservation your bags will be tagged to Las Vegas but you will have to claim them in seattle to go through US Customs, then immediately re-check them afterwards.

    Hello, i will arrive at JFK terminal 8 from Qatar airways and i have a connecting flight on Latam airline to SCL. These are 2 separate tickets. Do i need to clear immigration, collect bag and go for re-check in at LA airline? Or is there a transfer desk? I know LA airline also operates from terminal 8, so which floor do i need to go to? Thanks


    Yes, you have to do all that, you will have to bring your bag to the LATAM check-in desk on the departure level.


    Hello ZAP thanks for replying, 5 hours should be enough to do all that right?


    Yes, it should be.


    Thnak you


  • Connecting Flights - Baggage
    Oct 17, 2016
    I am flying from ORD to London, but have to buy my ticket to Chicago from STL separately. Will I need to go to baggage claim and go back through security when I get to ORD to make sure that my baggage gets on my London flight?


    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your bags and go through US Customs, then you will have to take your bags with you on the ATS Train to Terminal 3 if you're flying American to STL or Terminal 1 if you're flying United to STL and re-check your bags, go through security and to your departure gate. I recommend at least 3 hours between flights.

    I'm traveling from little rock to manila, i have a 2 hr layover in houston and in Tokyo japan. Do i need to get my luggage and have it check in again in every stops? Im using the same airlines which is ANA. Thanks.


    No, you won't see your bags again after you check them until you get to Manila. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.


    Thank you!

    I am catching a connecting flight to Toronto in Chicago, then flying from Toronto to Sydney, Nova Scotia. Will my checked bag be checked all the way through to Sydney when I'm in Chicago or do I have to re-check it in Toronto?


    Yes, recent reports are that you don't have to claim bags at Canadian immigration when coming from the US.

    It depends on what airline you're flying, but I've never seen a carry-on get weighed.
