  • Transfer of Baggage
    Jan 17, 2017
    Hello, I am landing with Wesjet from Toronto (pre cleared immigration) and connecting to Emirates. The transit time is approx 2 hours. Is this enough time? Will I need to collect baggage even though I have already pre-cleared customs/immigration in Toronto for the USA. How long is the shuttle or train to the other Terminal? Thanks.


    Are your flights on one reservation or two separate reservations?


    My flights are all one ticket and reservation.


  • Should I transfer my checked bags in ORD enroute to CVG?
    Jan 16, 2017
    I am flying LON-ORD-CVG and my port of entry is Chicago. After completing immigration check, should I transfer my bags between flights or would it be checked all the way upto to Cincinnati?


    Your bags will be tagged to CVG, but in Chicago you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the ATS Train to your departure terminal and go through security.


  • Customs and luggage
    Jan 16, 2017
    Hello. I will be flying from New York to Hong Kong with a 1hr and 15 minute layover in Vancouver. I was wondering if I'll have to go through customs and/or pick up and re-check my luggage before going to the departure gate, and will I have enough time to do all this? I'll be flying through Cathay Pacific. Thank you.


    On the way to Hong Kong you just wait on the plane.

    Jan 15, 2017
    Dear Sir, I travelled From Abu Dhabi to Trivandrum on 13th morning in Etihad flight EY 248 at 2:30am. My seat number was 22B and my husbands was 22A. I kept my Black SAMSUNG S7 edge mobile in the pouch in front of 22A, where the Etihad books are kept. I forgot to pick it up when I left the flight. Could you kindly check and let me know if you have received it. The phone has a black case and the screen protector is cracked. Thanks. Regards, Ambily 00919447673720 00919645774303

    Try to contact Ryanair, they will have it in Copenhagen. You should have known that Ryanair doesn't transfer bags to other airlines.

  • Baggage Transfer
    Jan 12, 2017
    Ive planned a massive trip around the world seeing the 7 wonders. all flights and hotels are book etc. just received an email from American Airlines informing me of a change. now in stead of having 2h43 wait for the last flight to CUN from MIA, i now only have 44 Min instead from when i land from ORD to DFW. as being a new to American airlines, is this achievable? and if so is the baggage taken to the next flight for us? Many Thanks Sean S


    On the way to CUN all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate if you are coming from another place in the US. 44 minutes is doable. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.


    oh great. thats eased the pressure abit. thank you for the speedy reply

    I am Indian have Mexican visa. I am traveling from Mexico to New Delhi. From Mexico to Amsterdam I have Aeromexico and from Amsterdam to New Delhi jet airways. I have to collect my baggage and recheck in for jet airways so do I need to pass immigration in Amsterdam? Kindly help me


    Yes, to collect your baggage you will have to go through Immigration in Amsterdam and will therefore need a full Schengen Transit visa issued by the Netherlands.


  • Delayed baggage
    Jan 11, 2017
    My baggage did not follow me from DFW to ORF on Jan 9th. It was sent instead sent to CLT on Jan 10th and remains there until someone puts it on a flight to ORF! I have called AA numerous times and they say they have sent messages to CLT and until someone sees the message all they can do is apologize for the delay. If someone from CLT monitors the Page please check your messages!


  • ANA re-check in baggage.
    Jan 11, 2017
    Do I need to re-check in my baggage if my flight is from MSP to SFO? And will 1h 25m be sufficient?


    If both flights are on the same reservation then you don't need to do anything with your bags in SFO - just go to your departure gate.


  • delayed baggage

    Hello, American Airlines had a delay in my baggage and I had an international flight at 7:45 pm on January 8th. The delayed baggage was suppose to arrive beforehand but it didn't arrive until almost 11 pm after I left. I need my luggage to be mailed to my location abroad. Is the airport able to take care of this? I still have my bag tags


    This is not the airport's website. Baggage is handled solely by the airline, not the airport. You need to contact American to get your bags.


  • Delay baggage
    Jan 10, 2017
    My baggage did not arrive with me from DFW to Boston. American airline has received my baggage since Sunday the 7th. A third party delivery company picks up baggage for delivery. In order for the company to pick up my baggage American Airline Baggage department has to create Delivery order. I have been calling them to get the status. All they can do is send the baggage department email. No phone number is published for anyone to call. I was told to go to the airport to pick up luggage. I am not able to go to the airport. Does anyone know of a service I can call and pay to have them pick up my luggage?


  • Avoid United
    Jan 9, 2017
    Paid $50 to check bags from Memphis to corpus via Houston on United. Bags were never transferred to connecting flight. Called luggage # agent gave us....40 minute wait to speak to rep. Avoid these incompetent hacks at all costs


  • Travel with hunting gun
    Jan 9, 2017
    We are traveling with a gun for hunting, do we need to allow extra time for checking in at the airport ?


    Yes, because it must be declared at the check-in counter. Allow an extra 15-20 minutes.


    Zap- thanks, I appreciate it, hard to get an answer online,
