    Arriving from Manchester (UK) and flying to Detroit. I have 60mins. Assuming I have no delays will I make it???

     

    arriving into Frankfurt United airlines and departing United Airlines to Detroit

     

    That should be enough time. Please note that both flights are operated by Lufthansa.

    Is the baggage claim for arrivals for terminal D in terminal 2 ?

     

    What airport are you talking about?

     

    Frankfurt, Germany. Arriving on American Airlines

     

    American Airlines uses Terminal 2 in Frankfurt, and yes, the baggage claim is there.

     

    Thank you !! This helps because we want to get taxis from Terminal 2 and not have to go to Terminal 1

     

  • Do I need to check out luggage coming from Ottawa, Canada

    Hi, coming from Ottawa and transit at Newark to catch a connecting flight to HongKong. Do I need to check out my luggage? I realised I only have 54 mins in between and am concern if I could make the connecting flights. Thanks for advise.

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration in Ottawa. All you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will likely arrive in Terminal A. You will depart from Terminal C. United runs a shuttle between A and C inside security. You have enough time if your flight from Ottawa is on-time.

     

    "You have enough time if your flight from Ottawa is on-time." what if the United Airline is not On-time, then What should I do, Please advise ?

    I am travelling from Dubai into Seattle then re-connecting into Alaska flight for Vancouver Canada. Can someone tell me customs process and also how to get to Alaska terminal

     

    You will arrive in the S Satellite, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, re-check your bags at the recheck desk then go through security and take the underground train to your departure gate in the C, D, or N concourse. You will go through Canadian immigration and customs when you get to Vancouver.

    Hi, coming from Tokyo and transit at Denver to catch a connecting flight to New Orleans. Do I need to check out my luggage? I realised I only have 90 mins in between and am concern if I could make the connecting flights. Thanks for advise.

     

    Are you flying Tokyo->IAH or Tokyo->Denver? Yes, you will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs, then re-check them at the re-check desk at the point which you enter the US.

    HI I am travelling to Vancouver from Sydney by united airlines with lay over at SFO then again taking united airline flight to Vancouver about 6hrs layover .do I have to clear the customs and claim the baggage and re check it ?

     

    You posted this in the forum for LAX? Are you connecting at SFO? Regardless, yes, wherever you are connecting in the US you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate.

     

  • Collect luggage or not?

    Hi, I am traveling from Winnipeg to TO via Air Canada, Terminal 1 then going to Dublin, Aer Lingus, Terminal 3 (2 hour layover). Will my luggage be transferred or will I have to pick it up? Thanks for your help!

     

    Did you purchase your tickets on one reservation or two separate reservations? If two separate ones then you will likely have to claim your bags in Toronto and re-check them with Aer Lingus.

     

    I purchased it as one flight with a change in TO.

    I'm flying from Calgary to Vancouver then to Shanghai. There is a layover in vancouver for an hour and 51 minutes (With Westjet) then my shanghai flight is with china eastern. Will I have to go through customs in Vancouver and will I have to collect my luggage in Vancouver?

     

    There is no Canadian customs when leaving Canada. If you purchased two separate reservations you will have to claim and re-check your baggage in Vancouver. However, if your tickets are on the same reservation then you don't have to do anything with your bags in Vancouver.

    My trip is booked with 2 separate tickets. The domestic flight on AA will arrive at 9:06am, and the int'l flight on United will depart at 12pm. Do i have to pick up my bags and take them with me to re-check in at United counter? 3 hour layover is enough for me to do that? Thanks

     

    Yes, you will have to claim your bags at Terminal 3 and then take them to Terminal 1 to re-check them with United. You should have enough time as long as your flight from Tampa is on-time.

    I am flying from Bolivia to Miami with American Airlines and then on to London Heathrow with Iberia Airlines. All booked under same ticket. Will I need to claim luggage and recheck?

     

    Since you are on an International to International connection, you should not have to claim your baggage. However, you will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security. Also note that Iberia does not fly from Miami to London nonstop, so your flight to London will either be operated by American or British Airways.

     

    Yes it is indeed being operated by American Airways also so was hoping not to have to claim baggage etc. Thanks.

    Arriving from Doha to JFK terminal 8 ....reconnecting to Tampa from JFK terminal 2....do I collect my luggage and go they customs and then go to terminal 2 or can I have luggage sent to terminal 2 and go thru customs in Tampa ...my final destination ,,,,,how do I get from terminal 8 to terminal 2

     

    Yes, when you arrive in Terminal 8, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs. Then if you have a separate ticket on Delta to Tampa you will have to take the AirTrain to Terminal 2, re-check your bags with Delta, and go through security.

    I am travelling from Mumbai- India to RDU. From Mumbai to EWR its Air India and EWR to RDU its United airlines. Whats the procedure after reaching EWR? Do I need to collect Bags and re-check it in United Airline kiosk?

     

    If you purchased two separate reservations and your bags aren't tagged to RDU. Yes, you will claim your bags to go through US customs then take them with you on the airtrain to your departure terminal and recheck them with United. If they are tagged to RDU then you can recheck them at the recheck desk in Terminal B right after customs.

    My daughter is flying from sydney to dfw on American operated by Quantas 7308 then onto BWI on American 2361. She has been told she must retrieve her bags at a transfer area at DFW. Where is the baggage transfer area? two hours between fiights!

     

    She will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim her bags (it's a special international baggage claim), go through US customs, re-check her bags at the re-check desk, then go to the departure level, through security and then to her departure gate which may be in another terminal. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security.

     

    Thank you so much!

     

    thank you

     

  • Re-checking bags

    Permanent resident entering JFK 2PM on Tuesday with 3 hour layover. Arrival on Ukraine International changing to Virgin America on same reservation T7 to T4. UIA may (or may not) tag the bag past JFK. Will re-check take the bag in either case or will it need to be huffed to T4. I do so worry about time.

     

    Virgin America and UIA do not have an interline agreement. You will have to transfer your bags yourself. You should have just enough time.
