  • Odyssey of the Minds Pins Lost
    Jun 1, 2012
    Hi, I have lost a bag of Odyssey of the Minds Pins (OM) that I have exchanged with the participants during the OM competition. These pins are pinned on the Iowa state towel, kept in my checked baggage. I suspected that the pins and the towel has been removed from my checked baggage at the Chicago Ohare Airport this morning when I am flying back to Singapore via Mineapolis and Narita airports. Please let me know how I can recover my lost items. Thanks.


    You may want to contact O'Hare Airport's TSA at 773-377-1210.


  • suitcase size checked baggage
    May 19, 2012
    I have a new suitcase flying with AA they measurements on the tag are 60 inches but if I measure the actual bag it is just over the 62 inch allowance do they measure the bags? I am flying to cancun


    Best to call AA to make sure - you may have to pay for "oversized baggage".


  • Flying to the UK
    May 18, 2012
    I am flying to the UK this summer. I will have a overnight layover of about 10hrs in DFW. Dose anyone know how early I can check my bags in? I already know I have to be there at lest 60mins befor not a problem since I will just be staying at the airport. Thanks


    At the Airport make sure your bags' tags indicate all three airport codes. On arrival at DFW you need to go through passport check, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance and then re-check-in your bag (if airline transfers) or go to your connecting airline check-in counter and check it in either on arrival or in the morning. You can contact the airport as to when check-in counters open at

    Delta (800) number says I am allowed 4 checked bags on a PCS move per traveler. Are there going to be any issues at your airport when I arrive concerning this?


    No problem - the check-in area is the domain of Airlines, which dictate policy. you will be just fine.

  • One Huge Gift Box + Personal Luggage
    May 3, 2012
    Hi there. I'm going to fly with Emirates from IAH-KLIA. I plan to check in one huge gift box (dimension 30"x22"15"= 67") which exceeds the required baggage dimension (one piece is 62") but my other luggage bag stays within 62 inches. Will I still be eligible to check my gift box as a free check-in baggage? I really want to avoid paying for extra baggage fees though as I'm here with a student visa. Please help :). Have a great day to all!


    Every airline has its own rules. It is best to open and look at their baggage policy and fee structure. In general Emirates rates high in terms of customer service.

  • How many bags allowed
    Apr 28, 2012
    We are traveling to India through Air India CVG>Chicago>Delhi. Air India ticket says two bags allowed. But traveling from Cincinnati to Chicago is through American Airlines. So does American Airlines charge more for my baggage?


    You need to contact American Airlines (member of "Oneworld" alliance) tel. 888-247-2262 to find out if they will transfer your bags to Air India (not member of same alliance). For AA baggage information open Estimated AA charge for bags up to 50 lb: $25 for bag 1; $35 bag 2; $100 each for bags 3-5. $150 each. As to Air India (member of Star Alliance): "Economy & Economy Plus: First 2 bags free up to 273cm/107in total". You can bring along Xra bags, but will have to pay extra at going rate.


  • Traveling with dog
    Apr 21, 2012
    I will be flying from Vieques PR to San Juan International with my dog. My flight to the states is 4 hours after I arrive. Is there a pet area at the airport where I can hang out for an hour or so with my dog before we go to the United Airlines cargo area?
