    Hello, I am flying from Reno to LAX via southwest (one booked ticket), then flying from LAX to Bangkok via EVA Air (totally separately booked ticket). When I get to LAX, will I have to leave security, go to baggage claim to get my bag, then re-check my bag at the EVA Air counter? I have a total of 2 hours and 20 minute layover in LAX. Will this be enough time?

     

    Yes, that is what you will have to do. You will arrive in Terminal 1 and depart from the International Terminal, on the other side of the airport. You will have barely enough time assuming your flight from Reno is on-time.

    I am flying Air France to CDG with a connecting flight 2 hours later also on Air France on to Venice. Does Air France check my bags through to final destination in Venice? Please help? Thx

     

    Yes, your bags will go straight through to Venice. All you have to do in CDG is go through Schengen passport control and to your departure gate.

     

  • From CR to Boston

    Hi, I'll be flying from Costa Rica to Boston doing a connection in DFW. Arriving 13:45 and departing 15:10. Is that enough time? and do I need to pick up my luggage in DFW or goes direct to Boston?

     

    You will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the SkyLink train to your departure terminal and gate. You have 5 minutes shorter than the minimum international to domestic connection time and 35 minutes shorter than what I recommend at DFW. This will be difficult.

    My flight from Dallas to Houston is with UA. Then Houston to Japan is with ANA. And Japan to Vietnam is with ANA. All tickets are under the same reservation. Do I need to get luggages from Houston and re-check again? Thanks

     

    No, assuming all tickets were purchased on the same reservation you will not have to claim your bags in Houston.

    Frontier is not showing any flights after 1/4/16. I'm wondering if this route is being discontinued

     

    Frontier has currently only opened ticketing through Jan 4 on all routes. They will probably publish their future schedule and open those flights up soon.

    Forgot a red bad on the plane

     

    You're going to have to be a bit more specific to get any sort of help. What kind of bag? What plane? when?

  • Pick-up of Family While on Layover

    My wife and daughter will be flying in from Mexico and have a six hour layover. We live in San Antonio and I would like to pick them up in Houston rather then wait for the flight to SA. Do we need to pick-up their bags in at IAH or do we retrieve them at SAT at the regularly scheduled flight arrival time? Thanks

     

    They will have to claim their bags in Houston to go through US Customs. After they clear customs they can rip the tags off the bags and exit the airport. However, if this is not the last leg of their trip the rest of their trip will be cancelled.

    if my baggage doesn't arrive in Paris until a later flight will the airline delivery to where I'm staying? or will I have to return to the airport to pick it up?

     

    They should deliver it to you.

    Charlotte to Dulles; Dulles to Paris - time between flights - 84 minutes; United Airlines...flying on Labor Day, Sept 7.

     

    That should be plenty of time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    You will go through passport control in Berlin. You won't have to do anything with your baggage.

  • Do i have to collect luggage and recheck

    Travelling from MCO to LHR via Detriot. Flying Delta from MCO to Detriot then onto LHR with Virgin Atlantic. Do I have to claim luggage and recheck in Detriot ? and what are the baggage allowances for both flights ? are they the same ?

     

    Assuming both tickets are on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your bags in Detroit. Just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Yes, the baggage allowances are the same if it was purchased as one reservation.

    Are airport luggage carriers permitted on the train between terminals at Phoenix Sky Harbor. Particularly on the new train system?
