  • Customs and bagge
    May 21, 2016
    I am flying into CLT from Grand Cayman then changing planes to fly to Houston. Do I need to get my bag that I checked and go through Customs then recheck my bag again before I board my flight to Houston?


    Yes, you will have to 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.

    May 17, 2016
    I have 90 minutes from time of flight arrival in Vancouver from Edmonton to go through US Customs/Border that enough time & do we need to collect our baggage and go through security again? Thanks so much!


    Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, your bags will be waiting for you in US Immigration and customs preclearance if they are tagged through to Honolulu.

  • Delta flight
    May 19, 2016
    Hi! I will ever going from MCO to Ghana passing through JFK. I have some checked bags. The flights are same reservation and same terminal. Once I reach there, do I need to recheck my bags, or can I just go to my next gate and wait?


    You don't have to do anything with your bags in JFK.


    Ok, so I just go to my next gate?


  • Delayed baggage
    May 15, 2016
    When flying in to Houston our baggage was delayed. British Airways could now tell us that our baggage has arrived at the Houston Airport. When we call the United Airline Baggage Resolution Center, the automatic voice tells us that the baggage is out for delivery. But the online tracker says they haven't got our baggage yet. Is there anyone to call who can let us know what's going on? When can we expect out baggage?


    You can call British airlines about it or find the number for that company's lost baggage center.


  • International Flight, Dog goes to Chicago, I connect to Cleveland
    May 11, 2016
    I am traveling via Austrian Airlines from Vienna (VIE) to Cleveland (CLE) with a connection in ORD. I have a 3 hour layover in ORD. My dog Buster will be staying with some friends in Chicago while I am in Cleveland and they will pick him up at ORD. I have three questions: Will l have to leave through customs to pick up Buster and take him out to meet my friends? Will I also have to pick up my luggage when I pick up Buster or will my bags be automatically transferred to my connecting flight? Will 3 hours be enough time to accomplish this? Thanks! TAC


    YOu will have to go claim your bags to go through customs whether you are connecting or not. You should have enough time.


  • AA to Korean Air
    May 10, 2016
    I travel from MSP to BKK (Thailand) i have 4 hours layover in Chicago (ORD) and i booked the flight serpent from MSP to ORD which is American Airlines. my questions is do AA going to transfer my bags to BKK? or do i have to pick them up and check them again? And if i have to pick them up how do i bring my 3 big luggage and a golf bag to T5 to check in for Korean Air flight to Thailand? HELP PLEASE!!!


    Did you purchase two separate reservations or one reservation? If it's two separate reservations you will have to get a cart to take your baggage from T3 to T5 on the ATS Train.


  • Transit on Different Tick/ Airline and Layover 24 hrs - Baggage ReChec
    May 9, 2016
    I am travelling from Mumbai to Amsterdam on Jet Airways and Amsterdam to St. Maarten on KLM. I bought separate tickets for the journey. The connection time/ Layover is exactly 24 hours and hence booked a cabin with Yotel for overnight stay. However, what I understand is I would need to collect my check-in bags at the belt and re-check them again since the time between the flights is more than 12 hours. My concern is would I need a transit visa for this procedure? I hold Indian Passport and a Visa for St. Maarten. Or is there any other solution to this? Can Transfer Desk at Schipol Airport where I will go to collect the Boarding Pass for next flight help check-in the luggage?


  • ERJ-135/140/145...WHY?
    May 10, 2016
    Why does the ERJ-135/140/145 even exist? No space to store your stuff, gate check for all standard carry-ons, shakes like crazy when flying.... Why are these planes still flying?!


    They're not that old and they're better than nothing and in most cases, better than a propeller plane.

    I'm sorry this happened, but nobody on here can help you with this. This is not the official website of Air France, CDG, or any other airline or airport.


  • Baggage
    May 6, 2016
    Hi I'm flying from Phl to iah -iah to mbj will I have to pay fir baggage again or will it go straight to mbj ??


    You will not have to pay for your baggage again in Houston. It will go straight to Montego Bay, assuming both flights are on the same reservation.


  • Great In-Flight Experience
    May 3, 2016
    I'm extremely happy with American Airlines on my flight from Denver to Chicago. It is the first time I have flown with American Airlines. The flight attendants and staff are great. Generous meals were served on the long domestic legs.Visit:


  • transit
    May 1, 2016
    hey, i am flying in from Dubai on Emirates next week and have 2hrs 45mins to transit to a domestic flight connection through to Charlotte, is it right that i need to clear immigration and get my luggage and then re-check my luggage in for AA flight out? will i have enough time? I'm coming from Aus via Dubai and have the appropriate visas too. i have to get from Terminal 4 to terminal 8? thanks


    Yes, that is correct. Yes, if you have two separate reservations you will have to take your bags with you from T4 to T8 on the airtrain to re-check them with AA.


  • Curbside @ Detroit Metro
    Apr 30, 2016
    My husband and I are first time travelers. We are flying to Florida out of Detroit Metro in July and we don't know how to do curbside check in. We are both American Express Delta Gold card holders, so we both get free luggage so no payment will be required. Are you allowed to park when dropping off the luggage? Will the valets know not to charge our cards? How do we both do curbside check in if they won't let us park at the drop off? Any and all help is really appreciated!


    Curbside check-in is intended for people coming from parking shuttles or from taxis or car services. I suggest parking at an off-site lot such as Qwik Park or Airlines Parking and then taking their shuttle to the terminal.
