  • Checking baggage to final destination with non-alliance airlines
    Jan 9, 2014
    Hi, I have two separate tickets - one with United from Greenville to IAD and the other with Saudi Airlines from IAD to Jeddah. Will I be able to check-in my luggage with United in Greenville all the way through to Jeddah or will I need to check it in again at IAD?


    Since you bought separate tickets United is under no obligation to check your bags over to Saudi. However, the agent is technically able to as United and Saudi do have an interline baggage agreement. It never hurts to ask the agent when you check your bags in in Greenville. Make sure to have documentation for your Saudi flight with you when you do so.

  • Travel to England, UK
    Dec 28, 2013
    I will be flying from Montreal, Canada to Newark arriving at terminal A, then making a connecting flight from Newark to London, England at terminal C, I only have 90 minutes to run from TA to TC, my question is do I have enough time to make the flight and do I have to check out my luggage and check in again for the flight to UK? Remember I fly from Montreal, Canada, please advise


    Were your tickets bought on one reservation? Are you flying United with both flights? If so you will pre-clear US Immigration in Montreal and your arrival in Newark will be just like a domestic flight. Then you can take the secure-side United shuttle bus from Terminal A to Terminal C. If your first flight is on-time you should have enough time.


  • Lost Giraffe Print Luggage through American Airlines
    Dec 28, 2013
    Hi, I can't seem to get in contact with American Airline's lost luggage office, but my bags have been missing for 4 days now. I have filed a claim and was told that my bags were in DFW, but there apparently hasn't been much done to get my bags to GDL. I need help contacting AA staff! My luggage stands out a lot because it is very girly and has giraffe print.


    Also, forgot to add that the number 972-425-2465 is just not working for me. I can't seem to get past the part where it asks me for the last four digits of the number I am calling. Help.


    Try AA's 'Delayed Baggage site:


  • United where is my luggage
    Dec 26, 2013
    I flew from Frankfurt, Germany on the 21st of December with a connection through Chicago O'Hare to Springfield, Missouri, we boarded our connecting flight to depart ORD at 2009 hours, once boarded they cancelled the flight and sent us out to fend for our self's without returning my bag, it has been 5 days since United has scanned my bags and every representative I call is in India or the Philippines, they cannot help find this bag.... why is it so hard to speak to an agent in America, why does the airline use cheap off shore call centers to conduct their affairs??

    You need to contact El Al airlines directly.


  • No one here to work!
    Dec 22, 2013
    I am waiting here trying to claim my baggage from American Airlines in Gulfport and there is no one here to talk to! The. Other airlines tried to find an employee and they can't even find an American Airlines person! Don't travel with them ever...nothing but problems!


  • Do I need to re-check in the baggage?
    Dec 22, 2013
    Below listed is my itinerary. Tampa --> JFK --> Dubai --> India. Tampa to JFK is operated by American Airlines and rest of the flight is operated by Emirates airlines. Will be arriving JFK at 21:30 and the Emirates flight departs at 23:00. Do, I need to re-check in the baggage at JFK (2 check in bags)? or would they check them in all the way to India from Tampa?. If I need to re-check in the baggage, would an hour and half be enough for me to make it to the flight?


    If both tickets were bought on the same reservation then American should be able to check the bags all the way though to India as American and Emirates have an interline agreement.

    My son checked in at Austin Texas. It was very crowded. He asked the attendant there if he needs to leave his bag at the baggage check in. She said yes and continued on her way. He continued on to his terminal and waited to board the plane. He flew from Austin to Atlanta G.A. . Waited for his bag and no bag arrived. His bag is lost and he just moved to Texas alone. Works very hard and long hours. He was finally able to afford to buy his Grandfather and younger brother and myself his mother and his father....Christmas presents. ALL of his Christmas gifts for his family that he was so proud he could afford and pick out special things. They are all gone. He is 25. Basically not much money. Living in a new state with no friends and working long hours for the special things he was so proud and very happy to share with his family for Christmas. He has never been able to do that before. I feel terrible. I'm his Mom and I want to help him. He even borrowed the bag it is all in. OH and all his clothes were in there. He is here with only what he arrived in. The bag is a duffle type soft bag. It is a red and black with Marlboro printed on the sides bag. Black handles on top and a soft unzippable small book bag type detachable bag as one of the sides. PLEASE!! HELP!!!!


    I'm sorry. He then left Atlanta G.A. and flew to Columbia S.C. airport. That was the end of his trip. Thank you. He has also already filed a claim. He arrived yesterday and filed the claim the same day. So far they can't locate it.


  • Horns to Tennessee
    Dec 15, 2013
    I am a Houston Texans Super Fan and wear Horns to All the games. They are completely made of plastic....can I wear them on the plane, or store them under the seat or in overhead if they fit????


    think!! These horns can be used as a weapon - I doubt very much that TSA would allow you to either wear them or put them in your carry-on bag. Try:
