  • 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).

    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.

    Do arriving pax at LAS claim their bags at Terminal 3 Or Terminal 1?


    At LAS you arrive at Terminal 1, Concourse D, and need to go to the Arrivals level to baggage pickup.
