  • Arriving at 9am departing at 11:00 am

    I have a flight from BCN to FCO on lberia that will arrive at 9:00 am. My next flight from FCO to ATH is at 11:00 am on Aegean. What is the possibility of lberia flight delay? and What is the possibility to connect flights conveniently? Thanks

     

    will you have checked (hold) baggage? If not I think you should have no trouble making this. If you do you will have to hope your Iberia flight is on-time and hurry to the baggage claim and the Aegean check-in counter.

     

    Thanks for the quick respond ZAP. I do have baggage. In general are the lberia flights on time? and if yes? will it be too hard to do that. give me a % of doing it conveniently?

     

    It won't be easy regardless. I think you have about a 60% chance of making it.

    I'm traveling from Indiana to Newark to Sweden. I'll have one checked bag and was wondering if I needed to get it in Newark and recheck it or if it'll automatically be put on the plane to Arlanda

     

  • International connection from Germany to Mexico via O`hare

    I will arrive in O`Hare from Frankfurt with Lufthansa at 2.10 pm (business) and will connect to Cancun with American at 3.45pm. Is this sufficient? Can the luggage be checked through?

     

    Is this on two separate itineraries or one itinerary? If it's two separate ones you will have to transfer your bags between airlines yourself and it will be very difficult for you to make it in time. If it's the same itinerary it's possible but you have no possible time to spare. You will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs.

     

  • How much time do i need?

    Flying from IST-LAX-DFW. Since layover at LAX is 20 hours i booked another flight from LAX-DAL. Flights were booked from two different sites. If i don't have a boarding pass for my separately booked flight to DAL , where do i get one, at the gate or exit, check in and go again through checkpoint?How much time do i need, and what do i do with my baggage? Am i going to be able to claim it when i arrive to DAL, or do i have to wait to pick it up at DFW?

     

    You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Immigration, then you need to walk to Terminal 1 (Southwest) or Terminal 3 (Virgin America) with your bags and get your DAL boarding pass and re-check your bags with them. Note that you can only do this if the LAX-DFW flight is the last flight of your existing reservation. If you are flying back to IST, that portion will be canceled due to you no-showing LAX-DFW.

     

  • What do i have to do?

    I'am flying ''United'' from DFW to IAH, and then from IAH to IST with Turkish Airlines. Flights were booked from two different sites, on two different days.Am i gonna have to claim my bag at IAH and recheck on my way to Turkey? If yes how much time is needed to do so?

     

    Yes, if you purchased two separate tickets you will have to claim your bags in your arrival terminal B or C, and then take them to Terminal D to re-check with Turkish. I recommend at least 2.5 hours for your transfer.

    Arriving in MIA from Antigua coming off vactation, have 2:33 mins to make connecting flight to Charlotte, have a couple suitcases. Will that be enough time? Will be on 11/26, thinking that's cutting close due to Thanksgiving.

     

    That should be enough time.

    Hi, I am flying from Atlanta to Mumbai with Uniteed. I have two connecting flight: Atlanta - Washington DC Washington DC - Newark Newark - Mumbai I have 1hr50 at Newark. Is it enough to catch the next flight to Mumbai ? Will I have to recheck my luggage ? Will I have to go through immigration ? Thanks

     

    You don't have to do anything with your baggage in Newark on your way to Mumbai. There is no US Immigration when leaving the US. All you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will depart from Terminal C. If you arrive in Terminal A there is a shuttle bus inside security between A and C. You have enough time. You will show your passport to the gate agent when boarding the flight to Mumbai, this is how they record that you left the country.

     

    Thank you very much

     

    One quick question. Do I have to go through security once more at Newark ?

  • Toronto to Mexico via Houston

    Hi We are a group of 14 flying United from Toronto to Mexico with a 1 hour layover in Houston. Some of us will be checking baggage. Do we have to pick it up in Houston? Also, do you know what terminals we will be flying into and out of? Thanks!

     

    You will not have to do anything with your bags in Houston. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. If your flight from Toronto is operated by Air Canada you will arrive in Terminal A. If it is operated by United Express it will arrive in Terminal B or C. Your flight to Mexico will depart from Terminal B or E. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    We were cancelled from a Sunday night fight and had to spend the night in the airport. We left Monday and arrived in El Salvador. Here we are 48 hours later with no luggage. Customer Service is from India and not much help. Any thoughts?

    I flew direct from PSP to IAH and checked my bag at the counter. When I arrived in Houston, after waiting for 2 hours, I was told my bag was still in Palm Springs and would be delivered to me Monday. They are still looking for my bag?? I need resolution ASAP.

     

    Nobody here is able to do anything to help you.

     

  • baggage through check at lax

    hi - my 16 year old son is travelling to San Diego via LAX from Aust.. He is flying American airlines to LAX( terminal B ) then to SD from terminal 4. Will his bags be checked through or will he need to collect them from terminal B and have them checked again at terminal 4?

     

    By "Aust" do you mean Australia, Austria, or Austin, Texas? American airlines does not use the International Terminal, however, the Qantas code-share flights do. He will have to claim his bags to go through US Customs. They should be tagged through to San Diego, in which case he can re-check them at the re-check desk, then go to Terminal 4, go through security and take the shuttle bus to the American Eagle remote terminal where his flight to San Diego will depart.

     

    sorry, Australia and yes it is a Qantas code share AA flight

     

  • 51 min layover with checked bags

    I want to fly Midway (Chicago) to San Francisco on United and have a 51 minute connection in Denver. I will have one checked bag. Is that enough time that the airline will most likely get my bag switched to the new plane?

     

    United Airlines does not fly to Midway - you either have the wrong airport or wrong airline. Please double check your reservation.

     

    Mixed up the airports. Flying from Madison, WI... but the important part, is that 51 minute connection enough time in Denver?

     

    Yes that should be enough time. both flights will be on the B concourse in Denver.

     

  • Alaska airlines theft of baggage from turnstile
    Dec 26, 2015

    My checked bag was taken off the turnstile. When I went to the Alaska airlines customer service desk I was told by the manager Stephanie thatI could not file a claim, that I needed to allow them 30 days to find my bag. They would not tell me what their policies were and they treated me like a criminal. The port authority police told me the same thing. My bag was taken before it went around the turnstile. I was told by the agent that it was probably an honest mistake. I travel quite often for my work and I will avoid Alaska Airlines from now on. Your customer service is horrific and your people are not properly trained. I was promised a call back today by Stefanie the manager, and I seriously doubt that I will get one. I just looked at some of the travel blogs online and I am seriously concerned about Alaska airlines ability to be honest and professional in this matter.

     

    This is not Alaska Airlines' website. Nobody from Alaska Airlines will read this.

    Hi I will arrive at JFK at 11:30 A.M from Riyadh through Saudi Airlines, my next connecting flight is to Minneapolis through Delta. Would i need to collect my baggage and re check again after going through customs?? I have a single ticket and Saudi Airlines and Delta are skyteam partners. Thanks

     

    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, re-check your bags at the recheck desk then go through security and to your departure gate
