  • International Arrival baggage collection onward domestic travel
    Apr 1, 2015

    Hi, My wife and daughter will be arriving at LAX Tom Bradley via Cathay Pacific from Hong Kong. I know we will have to collect bags at LAX and clear customs and immigration. Can they recheck in the bags immediately after the clearance. I bought the tickets together not separately. They will be further travelling to San Diego Appreciate any information

     

    Since they bought tickets together, yes, their bags will be tagged through to SAN and they can re-check them at the transfer desk in the TBIT at LAX. They will follow the signs for connecting passengers once they clear customs.

     

  • Baggage check from Swiss to Jet Blue

    I have a flight arrival at JFK via Swiss. Have a connection with Jet Blue. After Customs how do we drop off the baggage for the next Jet Blue flight. Is 2 hrs enough time?

     

    Swiss and JetBlue do not have an Interline Baggage agreement. You will need to take your bags with you on the AirTrain to Terminal 5 and re-check them with JetBlue. It will be difficult to make your connection. You will have to hope your Swiss flight is on-time and lines at immigration are short.

    What time do WOW agents get to ticketing gates? In Terminal E and its empty. Can't get through security w an e-ticket, correct?

     

    What airport? They should be there at least 2 hours before the flight.

  • Carry On bags United Airlines

    United limits carry on baggage to 2 bags per person, including first class. I travel with a roller and a briefcase. I keep my winter coat and sport coat in a garment bag for protection and convenience. Yet, they won't allow the garment bag. Either way, the same volume, which they hang anyway. Is there anyone at United to have a conversation with?

    This is not a United guideline, this is an FAA guideline. Also, this is not United's website.

     

    Guideline is the subjective side. Is this not a traveller forum?

     

    I don't see what's "subjective' about it. You asked if there was someone at United you could speak with. This is not United's website. I don't know why you think United would respond to you here considering this is not their website. This website is primarily for travelers to ask questions about making connections or navigating airports, not for passengers to complain about airline policies that are industry standard.

    Hi, So, I'm traveling from Toronto to PHL then on to BWI (I have a layover of 1 hr 21 min) I land in terminal B in PHL (8:24a) then have to get to terminal F by 9:30a. 1) Do I have to reclaim/recheck my luggage? 2) Do I have to go through security again? 3) Will I have enough time? Both flights are US Airways.

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in PHL is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Terminal F is connected to the other terminals inside security by a shuttle bus. You should have enough time.

    I'm coming from Sydney to Washington, D.C. With a stop over in Dallas will I have to collect my luggage and recheck it in? Will two hours stop over be enough?

     

    Yes, in Dallas you will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and take the SkyLink train to your departure gate. 2 Hours should be just enough time.

    We get into LAX at 8:00 a.m. On terminal 1 and depart from terminal 2 at 10:00 a.m. Do we have enough time to get our bags for the second flight

     

    Barely enough time, if everything goes perfectly.

    I had bad experienced about check in and out my baggage. I expected baggage should be straight from usa to Philippines. When the airplane changed to other airplane in Korea to Philippines. The person announced everyone had to check in and out before flight to Phiippines. Why should I get my baggage check out and in. It should check out my baggage only in Philippines. Anyone suggest me. What did you do?

     

  • Baggage and curbside check in

    May i drop off several pieces of luggage for curbside check in before i park my car?

     

    If it's just you, no, you can't leave your car on the curb that long.

     

    Am I allowed to find a porter at the curb to hold it for me until i park. The problem is i have two large 50lb suitcases and then a carry on and it is too much for me to park and haul.

    I fly from Kalispell to Seattle in July. I notice my email confirmation has OPC opposite luggage. When I booked flight online, there was nowhere to book & pay for 1 checkin bag. Can I pay for a checkin bag on day of flight?

     

    Yes, you can pay with credit card at online check in or at the airport.

     

  • JFK - 10 HOUR LAYOVER

    Flying international, I have a 10 hour layover at JFK before changing to another airline. What do I do with my luggage for 10 hours from terminal 4 to terminal 5 ? Do I have to go through security again?

     

    Yes, you will have to go through security before your flight from Terminal 5. The JetBlue check-in counter is open pretty much all the time. If your bags aren't tagged through to JetBlue. You can check them with JetBlue when you get to T5 (assuming your 10 hours isn't overnight, in which case you won't be able to check your bags with JetBlue until around 4 AM). If you give me more details about your first flight and the times of your flights I can help you more.
