  • Carry on luggage
    Apr 4, 2014
    I'm trying to find out if my carryon is an approved carryon for Delta. I've measured it and it is the size that is on their site but I've heard that sometimes it's up to the people that are working and if it's close they'll make you check it. Is there a way I can be positive that my luggage will work?


    If it's under the sizes listed on the website you'll be OK as that means it will fit their sizer. They routinely let oversize bags on. The only way you may be asked to check is if there is no more room left in the overhead bins.

    how early can a person check in luggage


    The same day as departure.


    Also, the time of that day will depend on the airline. (for example the Lufthansa check-in desk doesn't open until the afternoon, however, most others should be open fairly early in the morning).


  • Transferring Baggage

    I will be traveling to Rome from MIami and connecting with a flight to Tel Avi, do I have to transfer my luggage, will I be using terminal 3 for arrival and departure?


  • LAX to JFK to CDG to JED:
    Mar 19, 2014
    I am getting on Virgin America flight at LAX then landing in JFK T4 at 7pm. I have 75mins to go to baggage claim (because there is no partnership with Virgin America and AirFrance), re-check bags, go through security, and get on my 8:15pm CDG flight in T1- is this enough time to do all this or will I miss my flight? Will it be easier to travel without baggage? How long does it take to go from T4 to T1?


    You will probably miss the baggage cutoff for Air France. You probably should not have booked that flight. You could make it if you travel without baggage and your Virgin America flight is on-time. It will take about 15-20 mins to get from T4 to T1.


    So if my baggage gets left behind will it be sent on a different flight to reach my destination?


    No, since it hasn't been checked at that point with Air France, it will be thrown out.


    How long does it take to go through immigration at JFK airport?


  • Contacts (eye) and flying
    Mar 5, 2014
    Where would you place your contacts? I'm trying to go with only carry on luggage. I will empty my contact case out and pack the saline in the 3-1-1 but where do I place my extra contacts? I always travel with extra. They are sealed in the box that they come in.


    You can put them anywhere, just leave them in the packaging.
