    I'm flying from munich with Lufthansa arriving in terminal B in EWR and then going in to terminal C to go to Panama and the airlines is changing. It is a whole flight ticket bought on internet - will I have to pick up the luggage and than to chek in it again or it goes automatically till the end?

     

    Yes, in Newark you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security.

     

  • Baggage and passenger pick up needs to be on the maps for a pick up !

    NONE of the maps show where the passenger pickup is located for any of the airlines using Dallas Love Field....

     

    It's a very small area. DAL is not a big airport. When you approach the airport it should be fairly obvious.

    Hello! Im a swedish citizen flying from Stockholm to Newark Terminal B. I then have to change flight to Charlotte at terminal C. Do I have to claim my luggage at Newark and re-check it or does it go to my final destination?

     

    Yes, in newark you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the AirTrain to your departure terminal (either A or C) and go through security.

     

  • International Flight to Domestic, Will I have Enough TIme?

    My flight gets in from AMS next week at 11:45, I am flying KLM and will have one checked bag, I am supposed to fly to OAK at 13:45 via Delta, is there a chance I will make this flight? Any pointers on how to make sure I do not miss my flight?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in the International Terminal, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, follow the signs for connecting passengers, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then exit the international terminal, go to your right. The second building you come to will be Terminal 5, go inside, through security and to your departure gate.

    I am travelling to India can I use two baggages that have combined weight of 20 kgs? Or only one baggage is allowed to be carried

     

    You are allowed only one bag free. The second bag is $75 when traveling on Delta from the US to India. http://www.delta.com/content/www/en_US/traveling-with-us/baggage/before-your-trip/checked.html

     

  • I am flying from London to Chicago to Toledo

    I am flying from London to Chicago where I will take a connecting flight from Chicago to Toledo. Once I get off the plane, do I need to go through security again before I can get to my terminal to fly to Toledo? This is my first time flying by myself and I am nervous as nervous can be. Because my layover time in Chicago is 1hr30mins. will this time be sufficient.

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the ATS Train to Terminal 3, and go through security. You have barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

    Thanks a lot! I have my return flight on 29th from Fresno at 17:40 arriving at Los Angeles International at 18:51, then to London Heathrow at 20:55. Do you think there is enough time there? What should on arriving at Los Angeles Terminal 4 in order to get to Terminal B please? My domestic flights are with AA both ways, I have a single bag under 23kg, are there any fees associated? Thanks in advance!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time for your connection in LAX. Since you are all on one international ticket, you shouldn't have to pay any checked bag fees.

     

    Thanks a lot!

    I am flying from Guadalajara, Mexico to San francisco(SFO). i have a layover of 1 hour 45 minutes for the next flight. Please tell me if that would be enough ? my flight from GDL is of aeromexico and then cathay pacific

     

    Were all tickets purchased on the same reservation? If so that should be enough time. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security and to your departure gate. If you purchased two separate reservations you will have to transfer your bags yourself and it may be difficult for you to get to the Cathay check in desk before the bag check cutoff.

     

    Yes. The flights are booked through same reservation. But since there are 2 different airlines involved. i am not sure if that would be enough, also i am not sure how much time it takes at SFO airport.

     

    You should have barely enough time.

    Hi; I need some advice here I have been booked on a Cape Air flight arriving into boston at 15:27, and have a Lufthansa flight from Boston to Frankfurt at 16:30. I have no bags, and assuming I am already checked-in, is the connection doable?

     

    I really doubt Cape Air will be able to issue your Lufthansa boarding pass. You will have to change terminals and go through security. I think this is very difficult, borderline impossible.

     

  • Do I need to re check my luggage

    I have a flight UA8100 on Tuesday that is operated by Air Canada I have air Canada's travel awards, would I have to collect my luggage for my connecting flight UA81 or would it be directed to my final destination.

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. In Newark you will have to take the AirTrain from Terminal A to Terminal C and go through security but you won't have to do anything with your bags.

    My mom was in such a rush to catch her flight that she forgot to claim her luggage and is now in LAX what can we do to get her luggage?

     

    Contact her airline's lost baggage line or if you live near LAX, go to her airline's baggage office at LAX.

     

    Hi I am flying from New Orleans to Cancun via Houston on United with 45 minute layover in Houston. Can someone advise if this is sufficient time and do I need to go through customs and will the terminals be in close proximity. Sorry don't know as yet which terminal I arrive or depart from

    How much time do I need to change plans from Emirates AIrlines arriving DFW from Dubai, to change to AA flight departing out of DFW to Kansas City in March 2016

     

    2 hours if on the same reservation, 2.5 hours on separate reservations.

     

  • arriving from Melbourne then on the San Francisco

    Our travel agent said our checked luggage would be forwarded on to SFO and that we would not need to retrieve it/clear customs and re-check it in for our flight to SFO. But in the comments here seem to conflict with that advice. We have Qantas tickets from Melbourne to LAX through to SFO, although they said the LAX to SFO leg is operated by AA. What is the correct advise? We only have 2 hours between flights.

     

    Your travel agent in wrong. In LAX you will arrive in the International Terminal, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, exit the International terminal, go to the right, the next building you come to will be Terminal 4, go inside, get your AA boarding passes if you don't already have them and then go through security and to your departure gate.

     

  • Just Wondering for my information

    I will be traveling to North Carolina tomorrow for ten days I was wondering if it okay to have to two bags check in or just one bag and one carry bag haven't flyer in a long time just curious before I arrive at the airport

     

    What airline are you flying? If you are flying any airline other than Southwest you will have to pay a fee for both bags.

     

    Houston Hobby Arpt my reservation paper is saying American Airlines

     

    Then you will have to pay a significant amount in bag fees if you check 2 bags.

     

  • Do I have to recheck baggage at SFO if going MEX-SFO-YVR?
    Dec 11, 2015

    Does anyone know whether SFO has the same option as IAH, where international travelers in transit get a green T tag and the airline transfers the baggage to the destination? Does SFO subscribes to this service?

     

    No, IAH is the only United hub that has this. The only other two airports in the US that have it are DFW and MIA.

    Hi. I'll be travel with my 17 months son from norfolk to lga at January 2016. I put him in the stroller and push him. That will be very hard for me to take and carry my luggage and travel to the JFK T4 to check in our connect flight. It's there any people to help with luggage and take/carry to the JFK T4 for me ? If have, how much i should pay them? And how i get to JFK airport T4 from LGA ? Taxi ? Or can they help with the luggage to take it to the taxi all the way from baggage claim to the taxi ? Thx

     

    If you arrange a car service they will help you with the baggage to and from the car, but it will cost about $75. You will have to get your baggage to and from a Taxi (which will be cheaper) but the driver will help you put it in and take it out of the trunk.

     

    Got it. Thank you
