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?
I would do the 3 hr 45 minute.
thanks alot
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?
Yes, it should be.
Thnak you
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.
We holding malaysia passport, stop over time at edmonton is 1hr 5 mins, is that enough time to clear the custom to yellow knife?
need to wait for the luggage?
you will go through Canadian immigration and customs in Vancouver, not Edmonton.
What airlines are you flying? Where are you flying from Seoul to?
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.
Thank you!
If i check in online but i have 2 legs of a trip, do i have to check in a second time for my connecting flight? it is the same airline.
You should be checked in for both flights when you check-in for the first flight.
I am catching a connecting flight to Toronto in Chicago, then flying from Toronto to Sydney, Nova Scotia. Will my checked bag be checked all the way through to Sydney when I'm in Chicago or do I have to re-check it in Toronto?
Yes, recent reports are that you don't have to claim bags at Canadian immigration when coming from the US.
