  • 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)

    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.

    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.

     

  • Rechecking bags to a domestic flight following international arrival

    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.

    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.

    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

    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

    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

    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.

     

  • Bag Claim / Security

    Im flying from Toronto to Burbank and have a connection at SFO.... will I need to go through security / pick up and recheck my bags again at SFO? (i know we do customs at the Toronto airport)

     

    Since you pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto, you don't have to do anything with your bags in SFO. However, if you arrive in concourse A of the International Terminal, you will have to go through security to access your United departure gate to Burbank in Terminal 3.

     

  • Layover in houston. recheck luggage?

    I am travelling from Venezuela to McAllen, Texas with United. My layover is in Houston. Will I need to collect and recheck baggage in Houston or does it travel to the final destination? Thank you

     

    Your bags will be tagged through to MFE but in Houston you will 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 (probably taking the skyway train to Terminal B).

Concerning the different pace there i guess, is it possible stay through the night in that airport? anyone been at that island and know it for sure?
