  • Baggage overnight

    If I overnight somewhere mid-way, say Seattle or Minneapolis, and then pick up my flight in the morning,can my luggage stay at the airport?

     

    If your luggage is checked all the way though, then yes, it will sit in the bag room all night. If not you'll have to take it with you wherever you spend the night.

    No, you cannot send baggage on a flight you are not on for security reasons.

    My bag did not arrived from Nicaragua. I was promised to have it delivered with the next flight from Altanta (has not been forwarded to the final destination), arriving at 7:30 p,m, It's 11:55 p.m. and my bag has not been delivered at the hotel. I have only a courtesy hygiene pouch given by Delta. My winter jacket (23 degrees outside) and all my clothes are in my bag and I have a parent meeting on Sunday. What amount could I spend in clothes that will be reimbursed. Thank you.

     

  • re check baggage

    I am flying from australia to LA but change flights in San Francisco, will my baggage be checked straight through to LA my final destination seeing as it is the same airline just different flight or do i have to claim and re check it, i did not know if i had to have my baggage with me to go through customs and immigration. Also i land in terminal 1 and have 2 hours to get to terminal 3 which is fine but not so fine if i have to re claim and re check my baggage.

     

    As an international arrival at SFO (San Francisco Airport) you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag: Onward passengers will exit Arrivals Hall through dedicated doors indicating 'Connecting Flights', where they will re-check in bags at the baggage desk directly outside of the exit. To connect to any of the domestic terminals, take the AirTrain's red line at either station A or G below the Main Hall. To get to Terminal 3, you can also use the short connector between Boarding Area G and Terminal 3 and its F gates. NOTE: Your bags will be transferred (same airline, or between members of the same airline alliance). You have enough time.

     

  • Can I have baggage unloaded at curb

    I had back surgery recently and am not supposed to lift anything over 10 lbs. Can I park at the curb & have my luggage unloaded & then go park my car?

     

    It is best to contact your Airport.

     

    Get information from the airport authority, or ask your friends if they know about these thing

     

  • How do I get baggage chg $25 refund

    On Jan 17th scheduled to fly to Pa. on 3971 at ll:20. Pd 25 baggage fee, but did not make plane as forgot drivers license. Wil forfeit $633 fare with Orbitz but how about 25.00 refund for luggage.

     

    you need to contact the refunds department of your airline. Also, if you would have contacted orbitz or your airline the day of your flight you could have received a credit on the airline for the cost of your ticket minus a $150 change fee.

     

    Well veI heard this several time from various commuters, All I can say is good luck with that matter. It can be refunded ,but you must continue talking to the upper mgmt. to get any real answers.

     

  • Items stolen from checked bags

    Flew MCI to DFW yesterday, and had some items stolen from my checked bags. Probably happened at the KC end, as the bags (surprisingly) came of VERY quickly at DFW. Anyone know how to report this to the authorities?

     

    Checked baggage is the domain of airlines. Open your airline site and look for "Baggage / Luggage" section to find details.

  • SECUENCIA DE TRAMITES CONTINUAR VIAJE
    Jan 3, 2013

    Viajo de Santiago a Washington con escala en Miami. Cuáles son secuencialmente los trámites que debo hacer en aeropuerto de Miami para abordar el segundo tramo de mi viaje?

     

    1. Si utiliza dos aerolíneas independientes, averigua si tu primera aerolínea transfiere equipaje a su aerolínea de conexión en Miami - si no, tendrá que volver a facturar su equipaje con su aerolínea conecta después del despacho de aduana. 2. Llegadas Internacionales en zonas de embarque D, E y F serán procesados ​​en las instalaciones del nuevo Terminal de Llegadas del Norte. Tienes que ir a través de control de pasaportes, recuperar equipaje facturado, pasar por el despacho de aduana y - si se traslada a otro vuelo - re-entrada en bolsa en el nivel 2. 3. En el nivel 2 es de reclamo de equipaje y acceso al tren del cielo a ambos lados, que conecta a todas las otras puertas. 4. Miami cuenta con 3 terminales - Terminal Norte con D puertas, Central Terminal con E, F y G puertas, South Terminal con H & J puertas. El conector Skyride en evel 3 conecta todas las terminales, con 4 paradas en D puertas.

    My son inherited a hand-carved hunting knife and would like to place it in his checked baggage to get it back to his home. Is that allowed?

     

    NO-NO .Check airport policy

     

    Actually, knives are OK in Checked baggage. Flyerbware is incorrect.

  • Checked Bag disappeared

    I checked one bag in DFW for American Air flight to connect to Singapore Air in Houston IAH. American checked my bag all the way thru to my destination. My American Air flight was 4 hrs late and when i finally arrived IAH same day, the Singapore Air flight had departed and I missed the flight. Singapore operates every other day (not daily)I have contacted both American and Singapore to find my bag and re-schedule my flight All I get is automatic answering and no IAH AA or SQ Baggage Management. Somewhere at IAH is my bag, but no one can help me find it.

     

    Seems to me that your bag only got to IAH, as Singapore Air had already left. I suggest you contact IAH at 281-230-3100 or e-mail info@fly2houston.com. Your bag should have your address on its tag. You may also try the Lost & Found at IAH (tel. 281-230-3299, e-mail iahlost@houstontx.gov.
