  • westjet and checked baggage
    Mar 9, 2016
    We are travelling from YUL to YYZ then onto Turks and Caicos. The westjet site is not clear if we need to retrieve our baggage or not. Our connection time is an hour. Do I need to pick up the baggage and recheck it ?


    If both flights are on Westjet you don't have to claim your baggage, you just have to go to your international gate.


    thank you for your fast reply. Greatly appreciated


  • American Airlines and 17 hr layover in Phoenix
    Mar 8, 2016
    I have a 17 hr layover in Phoenix arriving at 3:15 pm and departing next morning at 8:45 am for Cabo. Will I need to collect my luggage from my 1st flight? Or will this be tagged to go to flight to Cabo? Don't want to recheck my luggage but want to bring an extra change of clothes in carry-on if I don't recheck. Thanks in advance for the info!


    No need to ask the same question twice.

    Mar 8, 2016

  • Flight to Puerto Vallarta, connecting through ATL
    Mar 8, 2016
    Will I have to pay a luggage fee for my flight Tallahassee to ATL, if I am connecting to an international flight to PV?


    Flights to Mexico do not include a free checked bag for economy class passengers. You will have to pay the checked bag fee whether you are connecting to Puerto Vallarta or not.


  • Traveling from terminal 5 to terminal 2 in 2 hours?
    Mar 8, 2016
    I am arriving from Edinburgh at 1300 on 13th march at terminal 5 and leaving for Toronto on Air Canada at 1500 from terminal 2, they are not connecting tickets. Is this doable? Any advice would be great thanks.


    With checked bags I think that will be very difficult if not impossible. Without checked bags it might be possible.

    hi, I'm travelling from doha to denver via dfw on qatar. Do I need to re checkin my bags in dwf? or is it I can collect my bags directly in denver without baggage checking ?


    In DFW you will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, go through security, and take the skylink train to your departure terminal and gate.

    I fly from Italy to Buenos Aires with layover in Miami. Do I have to rechecka the luggage in Miami after immigration ? Or does the luggage go directly to final destination : thank you


    You asked this in the JFK Airport forum but you ask about Miami. What is your exact route and what airlines are you flying?


  • YVR-Newark-MUM-Do I have to re check in my baggage at newark ?
    Mar 15, 2016
    Hello there,I will be travelling from Vancouver to Newark and then to Mumbai with 3 Hrs halt at Newark.Do I have to recheckin my baggage at Newark?If so then is 3 hrs halt enough?Also,Iam Indian Passport with Canadian PR,I also have US Visitor Visa.Can I use my visitor visa from Transiting US?Or do I have to get another TRansit Visa. Thanks in Advance for response,


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Vancouver. Yes, you can use your visitor visa for transit. If both flights are on United 3 hours should be plenty of time, all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Hallo there, i have a (nearly) similar problem. That means we will fligh tomorrow with UA1047 from Cancun Mexico to EWR s(upposendly Terminal B) and round about 2h later with UA962 from terminal C to Berlin Germany. I got some confusing information regarding the baggage - Do I need o pick up my baggage at Ewr befor immigration (to carry it over the border by myself) or dont I and can go straight to my departure-gate after passing the immigration without touching my baggage at all?


  • carry on bags
    Mar 5, 2016
    how many bags can you have


    In the US you are allowed one carry-on bag and one personal item (like a purse, briefcase, or backpack) that must be able to fit under the seat in front of you.


  • LAX to YYZ connecting at ORD
    Mar 4, 2016
    Our flight is from LAX arrives in ORD at around 5:40am and we have 1 hour and half for connection from ORD to YYZ (Canada). We bought the tickets from United Airlines, and we have checked baggage. We wanna know if 1 1/2 hour is enough for such connection? Will we have to re-check our baggage at ORD? TIA.


    All you have to do at ORD is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You don't have to do anything with your baggage. There is no US Customs when leaving the US and you will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs when you get to Toronto.


  • Short Layover
    Mar 4, 2016
    I am flying into MIA from CUR (curacao) for only 1:45 and then taking WESTJET to Toronto. Do i have to collect my baggage and clear customs and recheck it or will it be transferred for me to the next flight? If I need to do it myself, is 1 and a half hours enough time to clear customs and make my next flight? Thank you!


    Were both of your tickets purchased on the same reservation or two separate reservations?


  • checked sports equipment

    Hi I am travelling with golf clubs. Coming in to YYZ on Delta and connecting through to YHZ on WestJet. I have one hour and five minutes for connection. Will golf clubs be picked up at the regular baggage carousal with my other luggage so I can recheck?


  • Re-check baggage at DFW for International flight?
    Mar 1, 2016
    My mom is flying from OAK to DFW to Eritrea; does she have to recheck my luggage again in DFW to Eritrea? If so, is there some assistance we can set up in OAK with re-checking the bags? She's an older lady and will need help with bags and language? Thank you.


    There are no nonstop flights from DFW to Eritrea. She must be flying somewhere else first. What airlines is she flying? The only airline that flies nonstop from Oakland to DFW is Spirit Airlines. Spirit does not transfer bags to or from any other airlines. If she is flying Spirit, she will have to claim her bags in Terminal E and then likely take a bus to Terminal D to re-check her bags with her International carrier.

    We are flying to Miami from London Heathrow (British Citizens) and then onto Orlando all with American Airlines. Will we need to go through Immigration etc and pick up our bags and then recheck?


    Yes, in Miami you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.
