On your way to Rome you won't have to do anything with your bags in philadelphia as you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal. On the way back, if you are flying the same route, in Philadelphia you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security in Philadelphia.
I'm flying into Seattle from Dubai with Emirates and from Seattle to Las Vegas with Alaska Airlines. Transit time will be for 1h55 min. Could i check if that would be enough time and if Emirates will check my baggage all the way to Las Vegas? Thanks so much for the help!
If both flights are on the same reservation that is just enough time. If both flights are on the same reservation your bags will be tagged to Las Vegas but you will have to claim them in seattle to go through US Customs, then immediately re-check them afterwards.
I am flying from Aukland to Houston (Air NZ), then onto Cancun (United Airlines) on a Friday next year. Is 1hr 45min enough layover time through customs etc or should I go with the next flight time with 3 hrs 45min layover?
Hello, i will arrive at JFK terminal 8 from Qatar airways and i have a connecting flight on Latam airline to SCL. These are 2 separate tickets. Do i need to clear immigration, collect bag and go for re-check in at LA airline? Or is there a transfer desk? I know LA airline also operates from terminal 8, so which floor do i need to go to? Thanks
Yes, you have to do all that, you will have to bring your bag to the LATAM check-in desk on the departure level.
Hello ZAP thanks for replying, 5 hours should be enough to do all that right?
I am flying from ORD to London, but have to buy my ticket to Chicago from STL separately. Will I need to go to baggage claim and go back through security when I get to ORD to make sure that my baggage gets on my London flight?
Yes, you will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your bags and go through US Customs, then you will have to take your bags with you on the ATS Train to Terminal 3 if you're flying American to STL or Terminal 1 if you're flying United to STL and re-check your bags, go through security and to your departure gate. I recommend at least 3 hours between flights.
I'm traveling from little rock to manila, i have a 2 hr layover in houston and in Tokyo japan. Do i need to get my luggage and have it check in again in every stops? Im using the same airlines which is ANA. Thanks.
No, you won't see your bags again after you check them until you get to Manila. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.
