  • WestJet from Winnipeg to New York
    Sep 30, 2016
    I am flying on WestJet from Winnipeg to New York with a quick stop in Toronto. Are my bags checked through to New York or will I need to pick them up in Toronto?


    Yes, in Toronto you will have to go through US Immigration and Customs preclearance. Your bags will be waiting for you there.

    Will my bags be checked through to Vegas or can I reclaim them in LAX? Thx


    What airlines are you flying?


    Hawaiian (would Delta have helped the situation any?)


    Hawaiian doesn't fly from LAX to LAS. What airline are you flying on that segment?

    I am traveling from Delhi to Kansas city (MCI) in United Airlines with a connecting flight at NWR. I made the reservation on a same ticket via United online booking. Do i need to collect checked in bag for connecting flight at NWR?

  • Fargo-Minneapolis-Cancun and back the same way
    Sep 22, 2016
    I am flying Fargo to Minneapolis with a 1 hour layover in Minneapolis then going to Cancun. The way back we are flying Cancun to Minneapolis with a 1 hour and 35 minute layover then heading back to Fargo. I am worried about our checked bag. do we have to pick it up and re check every time in Minneapolis or does it just transfer to the next plane?


    On your way to Cancun all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in MSP. On the way back to Fargo you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. Both ways you should have enough time.


    Thank you for your help!

    Yes, assuming both flights are on Southwest all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • 2 Reservations - How handle baggage?
    Sep 21, 2016
    I'm a newbie international traveler flying on Delta from Venice (VCE) through JFK to PHX. Because I used award travel from 2 different sources – I have 2 reservation numbers (1 for VCE to JFK leg and 1 for JFK to PHX leg). Questions: 1. Since all flights are on Delta, will I be able to check my luggage through to PHX at the Venice airport? I know I have to claim my luggage at JFK and go through customs but it would be so much easier if I already have luggage tags through to PHX and I can just drop my bags off at the luggage recheck. 2. If I can't check my luggage through to PHX from VCE – when I go through customs at JFK, do I have to go to ticketing to recheck my bags. I should already have my boarding pass from checking in online – but I won't have the luggage claim tags. I'm hoping there is a desk after customs that will allow me to get my luggage tags printed and recheck my bags without having to go through the whole check-in process. I would be most grateful for any answers or suggestions.


    It's possible but unlikely that your bags can be checked through but it doesn't hurt to ask the agent in Venice. Yes, if your bags are tagged to PHX you will go to the Delta check-in desk to re-check your bags.


  • Luggage skycap inside security at IAH
    Sep 21, 2016
    Does anyone know the skycap service inside security at IAH arrivals to help get luggage out.Would like to arrange a pick up for multiple bags coming in from overseas.


    No, there is no such service. There will be carts to use in the International baggage claim.


  • Connecting flight and baggages concerns
    Sep 19, 2016
    I will be flying from Manila to hong kong , and Hong Kong to Vancouver with a connecting flight going to San Diego with atleast 3hours of lay over at YVR, so do i need to go get my baggages and check-in again knowing that I will be flying from the same airlines which is Air Canada?or my baggage will directly go to San Diego ?thanks in advance .


    In Vancouver you will proceed directly to US Immigration and customs Preclearance. Your bags will be headed there where you will claim them to take them through US Customs.


  • Check bags through in GRU
    Sep 19, 2016
    I am flying from Lima on TACA, 13 hour layover in GUR then to JNB on SAA. All on one ticket issued by United. Will I have to collect my bags in GRU. If so, I will not be able to use the day hotel at GRU.


    Since it sounds like your connection is over the day, then it sounds like your bags will be checked through.


  • customs and immigration
    Sep 18, 2016
    Flying from GSP in SC, stopover in Atlanta , stopover in Amsterdam, to Budapest via Delta/KLM. What are immigration and customs procedures; will our check-in luggage go directly to Budapest?


    In Amsterdam you just go through passport control and to your departure gate. You don't have to do anything with your bags.


  • Will Delta check my baggage through?
    Sep 16, 2016
    Flying in on Delta from Johannesburg, South Africa, arriving at ATL just after 6 am and I depart on Vegas (domestic) to LAS VAGES at 8:25, is this enough time? Will I be able to check my luggage straight through from Johannesburg to Vegas?


    Your bags will be tagged through to Las Vegas, but in Atlanta 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 go through security and take the plane train to your departure concourse. You have enough time.


  • Check in baggages
    Sep 14, 2016
    Hi, My mom is travelling from Toronto to Amman Jordan through Monreal, she has only 2:05 hrs transit, she is with a wheelchair as well. does she need to claim her baggages in Montreal and check them for her flight with RJ to Amman? P.S. she is travelling from Toronto to Montreal with Air Canada then from Montreal to Amman with the Royal Jordanian.


    Are her flights on one reservation or two separate reservations?


    she has one booking number for all her connection flights


    Then all she has to do in Montreal is walk from her arrival gate to her departure gate. If Air Canada can't issue her Royal Jordanian boarding pass then she can get it at the gate in Montreal.


  • International Flight with Connection in Boston
    Sep 12, 2016
    I am arriving in Boston from Ponta Delgada on SATA on Sep 27 at 17:00. My JetBlue flight from Boston to Orlando leaves at 18:11. Will that leave us enough time? The JetBlue agent I spoke to said we really needed an 1.5 hours but may make it.


    That's not a realistic connection, especially if you have checked bags. SATA also isn't really known for being on-time.


  • Carry on

    If I am taking a carry on through American Airlines what size backpack may I bring with it?


    A normal size one that fits under the seat in front of you.
