  • Layover baggage
    Jul 12, 2016
    Hi all, we are flying to Rio in a few weeks and have a 24 hour stop over at JFK. We plan to leave the airport and explore New York! But what do we do with our baggage, is it automatically put in the next flight or so we have to collect it and store it somewhere? Thanks, Sarah :)

    24 hours is so long that you will have to claim it and store it somewhere. There are services that can pick it up from the curb at JFK and there is also a luggage storage place near Penn Station if you take the AirTrain/LIRR into Manhattan.

    If I am flying from Florida to Dallas then Dallas to Tokyo and then Tokyo to what location will I need to get my bags ? Dallas or Tokyo ?


    If all flights are on the same reservation you won't see your bags again until you get to Okinawa.


  • will I need to recheck luggage?

    I am flying from toronto to maimi to grenada will I need to recheck my luggage? can I leave airport? 6 hr layover


    If both flights are on American you don't have to do anything with your bags in Miami. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. Yes, you can leave the airport if you want but you will have to go through a long security line when you return.

    No, you don't have to do anything with your bags in JFK. You just have to take the AirTrain to T1 and go through security.

  • Not sented Luggage
    Jul 4, 2016
    My luggage was remain at Telaviv air port on April, 06 2016 ( It did not sent to Ethiopia) What can be the reason? is there any mess at the Telaviv airport? / what?????, but I did not expect such thing at Jerusalem / Esrael. I saw carelessness on Ethiopian Airlines for customer case even if the only way to communicate with any external airport is through them. If you have any information.... Thanks,


  • Port of Spain to Calgary
    Jul 2, 2016
    Good day, I am traveling to Calgary from Port of Spain with a stop over in Houston. I booked my flight with United but the flight from Houston to Calgary is being operated by Air Canada? Will I need to collect my bags and go through customs with them and the drop them off?


    On International to International connections on United through Houston, but I'm not sure what happens if the outbound flight is operated by a codeshare partner and frankly, you won't get a straight and knowledgeable answer on that by either United or Air Canada.


  • Do I need to collect luggage and clear customs?
    Jul 1, 2016
    Hi I'm flying in from Manchester UK to Toronto Pearson and then on to Windsor, Ontario with like a 6 hour layover. Do I have to collect my luggage, clear customs and then recheck in in departures? Or is there an interconnecting flight desk for this?


    What airlines are you flying?


    Air transat and air Canada


    Since you purchased two separate reservations you will arrive in Terminal 3, go through Canadian Immigration, claim your bags, and go through customs, then you will have to take the terminal link train to Terminal 1, re-check your bags with Air Canada, get your boarding passes, and go through security.

    AA allows 50#, Alitalia allows 17.5#. I want to carry on both flights. Do they weigh the bags in brindisi? How much over will they allow /-?


  • Iberia to Zurich; American to JFK with a snag
    Jun 30, 2016
    I am flying to Zurich RT on American. I plan on staying an extra 2 weeks and I'm flying Iberia R from Zurich to Barcelona as Iberia is a partner with American Airlines. Here is the "snag." On my return flight to Zurich, Iberia has contracted with Veuling for that morning flight. Vueling's policy is you must retrieve your bags and recheck them. My question is has anyone else had this issue with a contracted flight? in addition, I have 1 1/2 hrs before my flight for the states leaves. Is that enough time at this airport on a Saturday morning at 8:30 am to get off the plane, get my bag, check in at American, go through security and get on board before they close the door? What do you think?


    yes, that will be difficult. You might want to fly back on the Vueling flight the day before.


  • transit trough LHR WITH BAGGAGE!!
    Jun 29, 2016
    hi, arrive on T5 BA from oslo, departure on T2 AV, I HAVE A TRANSIT VISA, do i have to collect my baggage before going to Terminal 2?, diferente tickets, one is from british airways, and one from avianca. if yes ┬┐IS THERE AN OPTION TO CHECK MY BAGGAGE FROM OSLO TO BOGOTA, SO I CAN PASS TROUGH LHR WITHOUT PASSINg UK BORDER CONTROL?


    Since you purchased two separate tickets you will have to claim your bags from BA and take them with you to T2 to re-check with Avianca and thus go through passport control.

    I am flying to Seattle from Spokane on Alaska, arriving at 7a.m. My connecting flight is on American Airlines departing at 8:30 a.m. I have a checked bag. Will I have to claim my baggage and go through TSA again for my second flight? And will I have enough time for the connection?


    Are your tickets on the same reservation or two separate reservations?


    Two separate reservations


    You can show your AA reservation to the Alaska agent in Spokane and ask that they check your bags through, but they are not obligated to. If they do not you will have to claim and re-check your bags in the main terminal building and then go through security, making the connection very difficult.


    Thank you
