Going on over 48 hours now of delayed baggage with United Airlines. Calling airline results in over 2 hour wait just to speak with an agent. Any tips on how to retrieve our bags (they were last scanned arriving in YYC last night)?
Are you in Calgary? If so try to get to the United Airlines bag office - if you can't get to the bag office, go to the check-in counter and ask them to call the bag office.
I am comming flying LHR - MIA - AUA all with AA flights, with only a 2,5 hour Connection in Miami, but I still cannot find a traight answer if I need to recheck bags in Miami. On their own webpage Miami Airport it states that it depends on airline,, most internet pages I've visited say that I need to re-check my bags. I have boarding pass en luggage tag all the way to AUA. Who has updated info, which I can trust, do I need to recheck bags in Miami or will they go all the way through. Regards
Since the connection is international to International all on AA, then you don't have to claim your bags in Miami. However, you will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security.
I have a flight from D.C to Miam then Miami to St Lucia. Will I have to get bags go through customs and security and recheck my bags? If so my flight lands in Miami at like 8:45 and then the flight to St Lucia starts boarding at 9:06. I don't think that's enough time.
If both flights are on American that is enough time. You don't have to do anything with your bags. Just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
Hey, I am arriving at JFK by JetBlue airlines at 12:06 pm from Buffalo ( Terminal 5) and I have a connecting flight(Air India) to New Delhi at 2:25 pm from terminal 4. Both the flights are on the same reservation. Would I have to check in my baggage again and would be there be enough time to get through security ?
Yes, if you purchased two separate reservations you will have to claim your bags in Terminal 5, take them to Terminal 4, re-check them and go through security. It will be very difficult to do that in the time you have, but it's not impossible.
I would like to know if our luggage is checked in all the way from Calgary to LA and then on to Melbourne Australia flying Qantas or do we have to claim our luggage from LA and recheck them before flying out to Melbourne?
What airline are you flying from Calgary to LA? Are both flights on the same reservation or are they two separate reservations?
We booked only with Qantas but Qantas use westjet to fly Calgary to L.A
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. Your bags will be transferred for you. All you have to do on your way to Sydney is walk from your arrival terminal (T2) to the International Terminal, get your Qantas boarding passes if Westjet can't issue them, and then go through security.
