  • Missing Items from Delayed Baggage
    Jul 27, 2016
    I was flying from Tel Aviv to Toronto . My suitcase was delayed and has not arrived in Toronto on July 21. I got it back only on July 24 and three valuable items were missing, my wedding ring among them. It was there when I checked it in. I have requested to open an investigation with El Al airline and track who has an access to my suitcase that was kept in the storage area for 3 days. What else can I do? The ring is of a very important value to me.


    There's not much else you can do.


  • my Luggage was lost
    Jul 27, 2016
    I flew on a ATL flight DL85 and my Luggage has not arrived from France. Then I arrived in Birmingham, BHM flight DL 1224. How can I get my baggage in Birmingham and when? Tag Luggage: 0555SU 332154. I'm really nervous because I changed the arrival address.


    You need to call Delta baggage services. Posting here won't do anything.


  • Checking in baggage
    Jul 25, 2016
    Flying into FLL from Kansas in Southwest and connecting to Lima-Peru in JetBlue. Can I check in my luggage in Kansas all the way to Lima? Thanks


    No, you cannot. Southwest does not interline baggage with any other airlines. You will have to claim it in FLL, take it to JetBlue, re-check it, and go through security. You need at least 2 hours for this transfer, preferably a bit more.


  • Luggage from EWR to JFK?
    Jul 24, 2016
    Within a single United ticket, I arrive to EWR and 12 hours later I depart from JFK. Is it possible that they transfer the checked luggage from airport to the other or should I carry it myself? Thank you!


    You will HAVE to transfer the baggage yourself. Also, United doesn't fly to or from JFK.


  • Will checked baggage be transferred for me
    Jul 24, 2016
    Flying from Kamloops to Pvr on west jet. Changeover in Calgary. Will checked baggage be transferred for me


    Yes, it will. All you have to do in Calgary is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

  • Arriving at night and departing next morning
    Jul 21, 2016
    We're arriving on El Al from Tlv at night and departing AA TO JFK the next morning. Will we have to claim the luggage and recheck in the morning? What time should we get to the airport for. 9:40 flight?


    Yes, you will. Plan on arriving at T5 by at least 7 AM.


  • HELP!! Airline ships bag from a domestic trip to Toronto CA!!
    Jul 17, 2016
    Long story short my luggage was sent to the Toronto airport by United Airlines. I was headed from San Francisco to Portland ME and due to engine issues was taken off the plane - my luggage was not. Supposedly my bag is in Toronto CA airport but United Airlines has not been able to either find it and/or put it on a plane to Portland ME. Any thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Nancy


    It's likely in the immigration facility in Toronto and may take awhile to get to United's bag office. There's also no direct flights from Toronto to Portland, so to get it to Portland they will have to send it to one of their US hubs first and will have to send it as cargo, not checked baggage, which will also make it take longer. I suggest that unless you are going to be in Portland a long time, that they just send it back to San Francisco - they can ship it freight on a nonstop Air Canada flight. Of course they'll have to find it first.


  • SIN - JFK - MCO
    Jul 27, 2016
    Hi, I'll be flying into JFK on Singapore Airlines SQ26, arriving 11:10am and am looking for a connecting flight to MCO. I'm looking at Jetblue flight 1089, leaving at 2:09pm. Will there be enough time for the connection? We have checked baggage but if it helps, are flying First class on Singapore Airlines so will get our baggage before everyone else.


    Yes, that should be just about enough time.


  • terminal 5 to tom bradley terminal
    Jul 15, 2016
    Hi there, i'm travelling from Sacramento to LAX and I have a connecting flight to Paris. I arrive in LAX at 12.35 pm at terminal 5 and depart for my second flight at 3.30 pm in TOM BRADLEY INTL terminal. Im just wondering the steps I have to go through to get to my second flight. Including my baggages (i have three and im alone). I must claim my baggages or no? Thanks for all the help!


    If both tickets are on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your baggage. You just have to take the tunnel to T4 and then the new walkway to the International Terminal (it's all inside security). If you have two separate reservations, then yes, you will have to claim your bags and then take them to the TBIT and re-check them and go through security. Either way you should have enough time.


  • No Customer Concerns Alitalia
    Jul 18, 2016
    My luggage was delayed one day in Venice. It happens. Promised to deliver from airport to hotel in Venice. Did not. Promised to deliver to cruise terminal. Did not. Promised to come to the ports. Did not. Retrieved after ten days by us. It just sat in Airport and no response to emails and not answering calls.


    I still don't have mine and it's been 12 days! Alitalia lost mine when we were flying from Rome to Zurich. VERY FRUSTRATING!


  • Baggage Claim
    Jul 15, 2016
    I'm planning to go to Orlando (MCO), from Jakarta (CGK) via JFK with Cathay Pasific. My ticket is on the same reservation. Should I claim my baggage in JFK? Which terminal should I go to ?


    If everything is on the same reservation then you won't have to do anything with your bags at JFK. Cathay Pacific departs from Terminal 7. Since you didn't post what airline you are flying to JFK I don't know what terminal you will arrive in.


    I'm flying to JFK from HongKong also with Cathay Pacific. Do I go through immigration in JFK or MCO ?


    Sorry, I misread your post. In JFK you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and then if your flight to Orlando is on American, take the AirTrain to Terminal 8, go through security and to your departure gate.


  • 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.


  • Bags
    Jul 10, 2016
    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.
