    While IAH does not list a baggage storage, you may want to inquire at 281-230-3100 or e-mail


  • Baggage storage at jfk
    Nov 7, 2012
    want to leave a bag for a week in American Airlines terminal, is there a storage facility there or where is the closest deposit to Delta terminal because I have a short connection for International flight on return


    1. make sure AA has not canceled flight due to upcoming big storm hitting East Coast again. 2. AA uses Terminal 8 - it would be best to store your bags at Delta Terminal (using T2,T3 & T4) - the Airtrain serves all terminals in the unsecured areas. Then go to the Delta baggage office and check in your bag.

    I flew from kingston to toronto today and made a connection to bermuda. My bag did not make it on my second flight and I have now filed a delayed baggage report with Air Canada. I can check online to see if my baggage has been located but thats the only thing i can do, when i call air canada's baggage centre they just give me the same information. I desperately need this bag to get on the bermuda flight tomorrow. Is there anyway i can contact someone at Pearson airport or send out a priority for this bag? please help!


  • random luggage x-ray screening
    Oct 4, 2012
    I live in Asia and visit my parents in Pittsburgh. When leaving Pittsburgh, every time I check our luggage directly to Asia our luggage is 'randomly' selected to be x-rayed. If I check the luggage to LAX and then check them further on there, they are never chosen. Is it random?


  • Airport luggage wrapping machine in T3
    Sep 28, 2012
    Is there a luggage wrapping machine on terminal 3? I have seen one in Panama City and Guayaquil. If so, how does it works? Do they pass luggage thru security and them wrap them and no more screening?


    Which Airport?? Luggage wrapping is usually located just before you get to the security checkpoint, or right there.


  • Lock luggage or not?
    Sep 7, 2012
    Left Lambert Airport Aug. 20 at 2:20 for flight to Florida. Rather than have someone pry open locks on luggage, decided not to use locks. But upon arrival in Florida, found that someone had taken some items from our bag. Had clock, hair brush, etc. in zip lock plastic bag. Had to purchase items that were "stolen". So in the future, I guess we neend to use locks?


    If you use non-TSA locks, TSA will break them to get into your bag to check for contraband. If you do use TSA locks, I can only imagine that any pro thief will have access to TSA keys, so I don't really see any point in locking your luggage. The only one it will inconvenience is you. Short answer is don't put anything valuable in your checked luggage


  • Clearing customs from Granada, Spain
    Aug 30, 2012
    I will be traveling from Granada, Spain to Las Vegas, NV. I will be changing flights in Madrid, Spain and then again in Dallas-Ft. Worth. Will I be able to clear customs and check my bags all the way from Granada, or will I have to retrieve my bags at each airport and clear customs each time?


    International arrivals at US airports need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance and, if continuing journey, re-check-in bags. However, your first order of business should be to ascertain as to whether your airlines for each leg of your journey forward your bags to the next one. If not, after customs clearance at DFW you would have to take your bag to the connecting gate. Also check with your airlines as to baggage charges - you may be charged for each leg of your journey, for each bag (google your Airline and click on 'Luggage' or Baggage' reference. I strongly suggest that you open and then click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down to the detailed text.

  • Baggage Check In International to Domest
    Aug 26, 2012
    HI We are travelling from India to Raleigh, NC. We have a connecting flight in JFK (Airindia-Terminal 4 to American Airlines Terminal 8). Do we have american airline counter to Checkin the baggage in Terminal 4?


    On arrival at JFK at Terminal 4 you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag (the tag should indicate layover and final destination Airport Codes). Count at least 35-50 mins for this procedure. Also check first with Air India if they will transfer your bags to your American Airline connection at T8, if not, you would need to transport your bags to T8 and check them in at the Departures level, American Airline Counter. To get from T4 to T8 take the Airtrain which runs every 8 mins on average and takes only minutes between terminals, but is stationed at pre-security (train signs will guide you) - at T8 you need to go through security before proceeding to your gate. T8 has concourses B & C. Concouse B has gates 1 through 16 and Concourse C has gates 31- 47.


  • Cost
    Aug 26, 2012
    How much does it cost for extra baggage? What is the limited amount of luggage before you have to start paying? Are we allowed to put food in our luggage?


    Each airline has its own rules and fees. In general each of the first two bags under 50 pounds is charged. Each bag thereafter has a higher charge; there are extra overweight charges. You need to open your airline site and click on baggage (or luggage) related links. Also note that if transferring to another flight, you may also incur new charges. (with much luggage you may want to contact the airline's cargo department or a shipper like FedEx.


  • When do I reclaim/recheck luggage?
    Aug 12, 2012
    My flight is from Nashville International to Newark Liberty International (Operated by EXPRESSJET AIRLINES DBA UNITED EXPRESS) to Stockholm Arlanda (Operated by Scandinavian Airlines) to Turku Airport. Do I have to reclaim and recheck my luggage at all? Or will I just drop it off in Nashville and pick it up when I land in Turku? How will I know everything to do when I have never flown before?


    1. Baggage transfer rules prevail for the operating airline - ExpressJet - I doubt that they will tansfer your bags at EWR to your ARN-bound connection - find out. At EWR, you most likely will arrive at Terminal A, in which case you would have to take the Airtrain, serving inside the secured areas to Terminal C, which is exclusively United's. If ExpressJet does not transfer your bags, you need to claim them at TA and take them with you, exiting TA and either taking a taxi or the shuttle bus to TC; then check them in at the counter, go through security check & on to your gate. (At ARN you arrive at Terminal 5). I suggest you open, then click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, and look at map and detailed text thereunder. Also, look at "Traveler Tips" at top row, right. (Look a your ticket & at the overhead screen when arriving at EWR to find your Terminal and gate number, as well as departures time (which can change).


  • baggage lost
    Aug 10, 2012
    were can i report about my laggage? i have conecting flight to miami i'll sent my bag to recheck in bag went i'm in miami i cant claim my bag now so how i'm to do know????? plssss help meee.. tomrow i'll joining in ship i'm crew member


    1. Lost baggage is the responsibilty of airlines and you need to contact your Airline. If they lost your bag at Miami Airport, I suggest you open - it will show you the Terminal and baggage carousel number - When you click on the airline name you get more details, including airline contacts.
