  • AA to Korean Air
    May 10, 2016
    I travel from MSP to BKK (Thailand) i have 4 hours layover in Chicago (ORD) and i booked the flight serpent from MSP to ORD which is American Airlines. my questions is do AA going to transfer my bags to BKK? or do i have to pick them up and check them again? And if i have to pick them up how do i bring my 3 big luggage and a golf bag to T5 to check in for Korean Air flight to Thailand? HELP PLEASE!!!


    Did you purchase two separate reservations or one reservation? If it's two separate reservations you will have to get a cart to take your baggage from T3 to T5 on the ATS Train.


  • Transit on Different Tick/ Airline and Layover 24 hrs - Baggage ReChec
    May 9, 2016
    I am travelling from Mumbai to Amsterdam on Jet Airways and Amsterdam to St. Maarten on KLM. I bought separate tickets for the journey. The connection time/ Layover is exactly 24 hours and hence booked a cabin with Yotel for overnight stay. However, what I understand is I would need to collect my check-in bags at the belt and re-check them again since the time between the flights is more than 12 hours. My concern is would I need a transit visa for this procedure? I hold Indian Passport and a Visa for St. Maarten. Or is there any other solution to this? Can Transfer Desk at Schipol Airport where I will go to collect the Boarding Pass for next flight help check-in the luggage?


  • ERJ-135/140/145...WHY?
    May 10, 2016
    Why does the ERJ-135/140/145 even exist? No space to store your stuff, gate check for all standard carry-ons, shakes like crazy when flying.... Why are these planes still flying?!


    They're not that old and they're better than nothing and in most cases, better than a propeller plane.


  • Missing baggage and not feedback for it since almost a week

    My bag is still missing, tag number is 6006985074, it was supposed to be arriving 4 days ago and the company here said its located in CDG but we don't know why they don't send it with any flight coming to cairo!! Flight was on the 3rd of May AF0508 Please advise as its so frustrating


    I'm sorry this happened, but nobody on here can help you with this. This is not the official website of Air France, CDG, or any other airline or airport.


  • Baggage
    May 6, 2016
    Hi I'm flying from Phl to iah -iah to mbj will I have to pay fir baggage again or will it go straight to mbj ??


    You will not have to pay for your baggage again in Houston. It will go straight to Montego Bay, assuming both flights are on the same reservation.


  • Great In-Flight Experience
    May 3, 2016
    I'm extremely happy with American Airlines on my flight from Denver to Chicago. It is the first time I have flown with American Airlines. The flight attendants and staff are great. Generous meals were served on the long domestic legs.Visit:


  • transit
    May 1, 2016
    hey, i am flying in from Dubai on Emirates next week and have 2hrs 45mins to transit to a domestic flight connection through to Charlotte, is it right that i need to clear immigration and get my luggage and then re-check my luggage in for AA flight out? will i have enough time? I'm coming from Aus via Dubai and have the appropriate visas too. i have to get from Terminal 4 to terminal 8? thanks


    Yes, that is correct. Yes, if you have two separate reservations you will have to take your bags with you from T4 to T8 on the airtrain to re-check them with AA.


  • Curbside @ Detroit Metro
    Apr 30, 2016
    My husband and I are first time travelers. We are flying to Florida out of Detroit Metro in July and we don't know how to do curbside check in. We are both American Express Delta Gold card holders, so we both get free luggage so no payment will be required. Are you allowed to park when dropping off the luggage? Will the valets know not to charge our cards? How do we both do curbside check in if they won't let us park at the drop off? Any and all help is really appreciated!


    Curbside check-in is intended for people coming from parking shuttles or from taxis or car services. I suggest parking at an off-site lot such as Qwik Park or Airlines Parking and then taking their shuttle to the terminal.

  • Checked baggage, car and hot tub parts
    Apr 29, 2016
    I've flown to S. America from LAX with car parts before. Most of the time they are all there when I arrive, sometimes not. My family asked me to bring this hot tub heater in my checked baggage. Do you think that I'll have a problem?


    Considering that it's pretty small and light and doesn't look valuable it shouldn't be an issue.


  • Baggage and connection in Pearson
    Apr 29, 2016
    I will be flying from Montreal (YUL) to Abu Dhabi with a connection in Toronto Pearson. I made the flight reservation with Etihad Airways, but the ticket indicates that the first segment (Montreal to Pearson) will be operated by Air Canada. My question is the following: do I need to get my baggage in Pearson and re-check it with Etihad? Thx!


    Since everything is on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your bags in Toronto.


  • Lost iPhone 6 Plus
    May 11, 2016
    Hi, I lost my silver color ihhone 6 Plus that was in my back pack on Mar 13th evening. It was taken from my backpack and had a clear case. I was leaving that night from EZE airport by Aerolineas 1302 flight. Please let me know if anyone finds it.


    Please tell the airport police and you need to know the IMEI number to be able to track it... I lost my phone in Norway and told the police, but since i didn't keep the IMEI number i never got it back.


  • Do I have to get my own bag?
    May 12, 2016
    So I'm flying home from Rome flying AC and then I am headed to the US flying AA. So I know I have to change terminals but my question is can I have a friend who is coming back from Rome with me get my bag from the carousel or do I HAVE to pick it up myself? I do not plan on taking it onto my US destination. The tickets were purchased separately.


    The bag bay be sent to the US and not available for pickup.


    My tickets are completely separate so my bag will not be continuing. But is someone else from my flight home from Rome be able to get my bag to take home and me continue onto the other terminal without collecting my bag.


    Yes, it's possible, but if they are pulled aside by Canadian customs they'll have a lot of explaining to do as to why they have somebody else's bag.


    Speed things up. Allow 2 checked bags up to a certain weight limit at no charge. Allow ONE carry on bag that will fit under seat at no charge. Charge HIGH FEES for any additional carry on items.


  • Model of Airplane
    Apr 27, 2016
    Hey all I need some help figuring out what model of airplane I will be flying on. I am leaving Boston for Istanbul on flight TK82. I think I will be on an A330 per the airlines webpage, but I cannot find the right model. I have been offered seats 21A, 24D, and 6G at various times by the airline itself, yet none of the three 330 seatmaps I have looked at have those three seats in them. Each of the three maps (the 330-332 Versions 1&2 and the 330-333) have only two of those three seats on their seatmaps. So, I'm at a loss at exactly what kind of airplane it will be. This information is crucial if I am to get the best seat available, rather than waiting until I'm at the gate and hoping for the best. Has anyone actually seen this plane or flown on it and know precisely what model it is? Thanks for the help.


    The flight is operated by an A330-300. As far as I know, Turkish only has one seat map for the A330-300. I don't know why you were offered 24D.


    Thank you for the information. Much appreciated!
