    I'm traveling from London to San Diego with a connecting flight in DFW, and both flights are with American Airlines. Will AA transfer my baggage onto my connecting flight to San Diego or do I have to claim it and re-check it in at DFW?

     

    On arrival at DFW, you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag (the tag should indicate layover and final destination Airport Codes). AA uses Terminals A, C & D (TD being the International Terminal, where you need to go through passport control, pick up bags, go through customs clearance & then re-check in your bags. The Skylink at post-security gets you to your connecting flight. However, you can also use the walkway between A, B, C & D gates. At SAN (San Diego Airport) you will arrive at Terminal 2.

    In short, you will claim your baggage in immigration at DFW terminal D, then re-check it with AA after exiting customs, then go upstairs and go back through security then either go to your gate, using the Skylink train if your San Diego flight leaves from a terminal other than D.

    Is there a left luggage depot at Vancouver Int'l Airport? I'm looking at flying in from one destination and out to another a couple of days later. I'd prefer to leave my large suitcase at airport if possible and retrieve for onward journey.

     

    Yes, there is: 'CDS Ltd. Baggage Services' at YVR offers short or long-term baggage storage charging $5.00 to $8.50 per item. They are located in both in the pre-security area of level 2 of Domestic & international terminals: Domestic terminal: tel. 604-303-4519, open 5am-11pm; International terminal: tel. 604-303-4500

    Newark baggage handlers riffled through both our bags during connection/ transit through Newark. I lost an apple product as many others seem to have posted also.

    What airline are you flying from Florence? Lufthansa? If you bought your tickets in one booking you won't have to claim your bags in Frankfurt.
