    I have flight from Calgary to Huston, Huston to Doha and Doha to Ahmadabad. Do I have to pick up luggage in Huston for custom or it will straight to go to Ahmadabad India? Same coming back have flight from Ahmadabad- Dona- Huston- Calgary. Do I have to p/u luggage in Huston or will go straight to Calgary?


    What airlines are you flying? Are all tickets on the same reservation? On your flight from Calgary to Houston you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary.


    From Calgary via westjet nd Qatar from Huston. And coming back Qatar upto Huston nd westjet from Huston to Calgary.


    As I said, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. If your bags are tagged through to Ahmedabad then all you have to do in Houston is take the Skyway train from your arrival gate in Terminal A to your departure gate in Terminal D. On the return you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, and go through security.


    My husband will have about two and a half hours in Huston coming back do you think it's enough for us custom nd immigration to get connecting flight for Calgary?


    Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes perfectly.


  • Flying Syd Australia to LAX then Chicago
    Apr 22, 2016
    Hi, I wanted to bring some food goodies to US friend like Tim Tams and Lollies(candy). I'm flying United both flights and they say on their site bring it in carry on. Then I've read on other sites that all food has to be tossed when leaving plane. Can someone tell me do I put food gifts in Checked or carry on bags, as I'm a first time flyer. Also can I bring food from home to eat on plane,just sandwiches snacks(non liquid) as United has given me 2 different answers.


    You can bring nonliquid food with you to eat on the plane. You can bring packaged food into the US in either your carry-on or checked bags.


    Thanks for that. Finally a straight answer.


  • Lost iPad

  • Connection at Pearson before San Jose
    Apr 21, 2016
    I'm flying from Vancouver to Pearson and have a 2 hour layover before my flight to San Jose. Will I have to recheck my baggage or just go through customs at Pearson? Both flights are Air Canada.


    I assume you are flying to San Jose, Costa Rica. In that case all you have to do in Toronto is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no Canadian customs when leaving Canada.


  • checked in bag (AA)
    Apr 20, 2016
    My mom has a flight NRT-LAX with American Airlines. Then she has a flight LAX - RNO with American Airlines also, but that is a different reservation. I found some information on Russian-speaking forum that people who arrived to the US from Russia or Europe and then had a domestic fight within 24 hours after arrival were able to check in one free bag on a AA domestic flight. All they had to do is to show their previous boarding pass. Does this still work? Or has the rules changed?


    She can show her LAX-RNO confirmation to the AA agent in NRT and they should be able to tag her bags to RNO for her. She will still have to claim them in LAX to go through US Customs, but can then immediately re-check them at the re-check desk.


  • 36 MN TIME
    Nov 1, 2016
    connection flight from ny to houston to clt, and the time between the flights is 36 min, pls help is it enought


    So you're connecting in Charlotte? Yes, that is enough time if your flight from New York is on-time. All gates in Charlotte are connected inside security.


    I have lost one luggade at JFK. How do I regain it?


  • Rechecking bags to a domestic flight following international arrival
    Apr 18, 2016
    Our tour group booked our flights on American into PHL but we had to make our own flight reservations for onward travel on American from PHL to our home town. As such, the flights are not connected. Does American Airline have a transfer desk in the International Arrivals hall where we can check into our second flight, or do we have to leave the airport & reenter to stand in line at the American Airline departures line? Thank you


    Since they will be on two separate reservations you will have to go to the American Airlines check in desk to check your bags for onward travel.

  • Check-in problem
    Apr 15, 2016
    Hi, I'm departing from Calgary at 12:35 and arriving Vancouver at 13:00 by Air Canada connection flight , and taking another flight from Vancouver to Hong kong at 14:45 by cathay Pacific. There is a 1 hour 45 minutes stopover in between two flights. Do i have to grab my luggages in Vancouver and check in again with those baggages for the 2nd flight, meanwhile they are on 1 reservation by operated by different airlines


    If they are both on the same reservation then your bags should be checked through to Hong Kong and you don't have to do anything with your bags in Vancouver.

  • Arline connection and baggage transfer information
    Apr 10, 2016
    Hi I would be travelling from new delhi to Budapest with 70 min layover at Zurich. The itinerary includes same airline from new delhi to Zurich and Zurich to Budapest. Do I have to collect my checked-in baggage at Zurich airport and check in again for next flight to Budapest. Also is the 70 min layover enough to catch the next flight.


    You don't have to claim your baggage in Zurich. You just have to go through passport control and security. You should have enough time if your flight from Delhi is on-time.


  • Connection between Frankfurt to Berlin
    Apr 10, 2016
    I have a 2 hour connection between Frankfurt int airport to Berlin TXL. If I bring along a luggage, would i have to pick my luggage and would it be enough time as there is no passport control.


    Where are you flying from and to? What airlines are you flying? Are all tickets on the same reservation or separate?


  • Carry-on prescriptions
    Apr 9, 2016
    Specifically I'm wondering about prescription nasal spray. Is that allowed on carry-on? Do I have to put it in the plastic bag routine?


    It's allowed, but yes, you have to put it in the plastic bag.


  • No recheck for domestic connection
    Apr 9, 2016
    My brother landed in Atl from Amsterdam and he's connecting to Charlotte. They told him he wouldn't pick up his bags until he reached Charlotte, but everything we read said he should get his bags and send them to recheck. What's going on here?


    I finally got ahold of ATL airport. They said since he flew in on Delta and will fly out on Delta there is no need to receive and recheck baggage. It's only received and rechecked if the airline changes. Can someone confirm?


    Whoever told you that has no clue what he's talking about. He will have to claim his bags, go through US Customs, and then re-check them immediately after at the re-check desk.
