    Hello, we are going to fly from BUD to LPA via BCN. From BUD to BCN with Wizzair, from BCN to LPA with Vueling, two different reservations. Do we need to collect our baggages at BCN or enough at LPA? Thank you!

     

    Yes, you will have to claim your bags in Barcelona and re-check them with Vueling. Wizzair does not transfer bags to other airlines.

    Flying from Windsor to Palermo via Toronto/Roma. Air Canada then Alitalia to PMO. Booked together as one ticket with Air Canada. Do we claim checked baggage in Rome and clear customs there, or in Palermo?

     

    No, you won't have to claim your bags in Rome, just go through passport control.

    My mom is coming tomorrow from Russia, to T4, and her connecting flight is in couple hours from the same terminal. How the check in baggage will work, worried as she doesnt speak english

     

    Are her tickets on two separate reservations or one reservation? What airlines is she flying?

     

    If she has one ticket, including the connection one, she does not have to pick up the luggage. Better to check with check in services. Usually for the connection, she has to go through the security services and then come back to the terminal from which another plane departs. If she speaks Russiia, there are many airport workers who speak Russian in Israel

     

    Thank you, she has two different reservations, though both flights are at t4.

     

    AB is completely incorrect anyways and thinks your mom is connecting in israel. She will have to go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, re-check her bags at the check in counter for her second airline, and go through security and to her departure gate. She reasonably needs at least 2.5 hours to make this connection.

     

  • Missing Items from Delayed Baggage
    Jul 27, 2016

    I was flying from Tel Aviv to Toronto . My suitcase was delayed and has not arrived in Toronto on July 21. I got it back only on July 24 and three valuable items were missing, my wedding ring among them. It was there when I checked it in. I have requested to open an investigation with El Al airline and track who has an access to my suitcase that was kept in the storage area for 3 days. What else can I do? The ring is of a very important value to me.

     

    There's not much else you can do.

     

  • my Luggage was lost

    I flew on a ATL flight DL85 and my Luggage has not arrived from France. Then I arrived in Birmingham, BHM flight DL 1224. How can I get my baggage in Birmingham and when? Tag Luggage: 0555SU 332154. I'm really nervous because I changed the arrival address.

     

    You need to call Delta baggage services. Posting here won't do anything.

    Flying into FLL from Kansas in Southwest and connecting to Lima-Peru in JetBlue. Can I check in my luggage in Kansas all the way to Lima? Thanks

     

    No, you cannot. Southwest does not interline baggage with any other airlines. You will have to claim it in FLL, take it to JetBlue, re-check it, and go through security. You need at least 2 hours for this transfer, preferably a bit more.

     

  • Luggage from EWR to JFK?

    Within a single United ticket, I arrive to EWR and 12 hours later I depart from JFK. Is it possible that they transfer the checked luggage from airport to the other or should I carry it myself? Thank you!

     

    You will HAVE to transfer the baggage yourself. Also, United doesn't fly to or from JFK.

    Flying from Kamloops to Pvr on west jet. Changeover in Calgary. Will checked baggage be transferred for me

     

    Yes, it will. All you have to do in Calgary is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    We're arriving on El Al from Tlv at night and departing AA TO JFK the next morning. Will we have to claim the luggage and recheck in the morning? What time should we get to the airport for. 9:40 flight?

     

    Yes, you will. Plan on arriving at T5 by at least 7 AM.

     

  • HELP!! Airline ships bag from a domestic trip to Toronto CA!!

    Long story short my luggage was sent to the Toronto airport by United Airlines. I was headed from San Francisco to Portland ME and due to engine issues was taken off the plane - my luggage was not. Supposedly my bag is in Toronto CA airport but United Airlines has not been able to either find it and/or put it on a plane to Portland ME. Any thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Nancy

     

    It's likely in the immigration facility in Toronto and may take awhile to get to United's bag office. There's also no direct flights from Toronto to Portland, so to get it to Portland they will have to send it to one of their US hubs first and will have to send it as cargo, not checked baggage, which will also make it take longer. I suggest that unless you are going to be in Portland a long time, that they just send it back to San Francisco - they can ship it freight on a nonstop Air Canada flight. Of course they'll have to find it first.

    Hi, I'll be flying into JFK on Singapore Airlines SQ26, arriving 11:10am and am looking for a connecting flight to MCO. I'm looking at Jetblue flight 1089, leaving at 2:09pm. Will there be enough time for the connection? We have checked baggage but if it helps, are flying First class on Singapore Airlines so will get our baggage before everyone else.

     

    Yes, that should be just about enough time.

     

  • terminal 5 to tom bradley terminal

    Hi there, i'm travelling from Sacramento to LAX and I have a connecting flight to Paris. I arrive in LAX at 12.35 pm at terminal 5 and depart for my second flight at 3.30 pm in TOM BRADLEY INTL terminal. Im just wondering the steps I have to go through to get to my second flight. Including my baggages (i have three and im alone). I must claim my baggages or no? Thanks for all the help!

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your baggage. You just have to take the tunnel to T4 and then the new walkway to the International Terminal (it's all inside security). If you have two separate reservations, then yes, you will have to claim your bags and then take them to the TBIT and re-check them and go through security. Either way you should have enough time.

     

  • No Customer Concerns Alitalia

    My luggage was delayed one day in Venice. It happens. Promised to deliver from airport to hotel in Venice. Did not. Promised to deliver to cruise terminal. Did not. Promised to come to the ports. Did not. Retrieved after ten days by us. It just sat in Airport and no response to emails and not answering calls.

     

    I still don't have mine and it's been 12 days! Alitalia lost mine when we were flying from Rome to Zurich. VERY FRUSTRATING!

     

  • Baggage Claim

    I'm planning to go to Orlando (MCO), from Jakarta (CGK) via JFK with Cathay Pasific. My ticket is on the same reservation. Should I claim my baggage in JFK? Which terminal should I go to ?

     

    If everything is on the same reservation then you won't have to do anything with your bags at JFK. Cathay Pacific departs from Terminal 7. Since you didn't post what airline you are flying to JFK I don't know what terminal you will arrive in.

     

    I'm flying to JFK from HongKong also with Cathay Pacific. Do I go through immigration in JFK or MCO ?

     

    Sorry, I misread your post. In JFK you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and then if your flight to Orlando is on American, take the AirTrain to Terminal 8, go through security and to your departure gate.
