    Flew atlas jet from Ben Gurion airport, checked in my luggage with tag 1C 275949 on flight kk 6014 on 3rd of November. My luggage did not arrive. wondering why. could it have been intercepted by security? cos i had some medical equipment in it

     

    You will have to contact your airline. This is not the airport or airline's website.

     

    Flew from Tel Aviv to London on the 19th Oct and still waiting for the bag to arrive, we had olive oil inside and by mistake detached the security screening labels, although did try to attach them again. I have been in touch with the ground handling people the security removed baggage department and everyone else in between. They all say there is nowhere else to look. I do wish you luck, I'm thinking of going back to Tel Aviv to look myself. Ours was an easyjet flight EZY8818 baggage tag XH367670

    Hi, flying from Kalispell via Seattle to Vancouver with Alaskan air do I have to pick up baggage in Seatlle and go through customs and if so is 48mins enough time?

     

    No you do not. You will go through Canadian Immigration and customs when you get to Vancouver. You do not go through US Immigration when leaving the US. You should have enough time.

    Hi, We arrive on 6:55 in Charlotte from Tampa and have to get the flight at 7:50 to Munich, Germany and our luggage is already in Charlotte so we have to pick That up. Do you think we can get our flight?

     

    If you actually have to exit the secure area to get some bagage it might be a bit tough.

  • Interline agreement CX and DL and mobility assistance
    Oct 30, 2014
    1
    Im arriving with CX in JFK and have a connecting flight on a separate ticket with DL to IAD. CX has an interline agreement with DL, and have told me that the baggage can be checked through to final destination. I understand that we have to clear immigrations and collect the baggage / clear customs. But can i get some info on: -is there a Delta counter for bag drop in T7 after customs? If there is i assume we drop it off and go to the DL terminal to go through security? -does connecting carrier assume the baggage policy of the originating carrier, since international baggage rules are vastly different from domestic. We are also flying business class. One last thing: i will be traveling with an elderly woman and CX has arranged for wheelchair assistance upon arrival. How can we avail this to move from T7 to the DL terminal? Thanks

     

    If your bags are tagged through to IAD you can re-check them at the transfer desk in T7. If the bag is tagged through to IAD DL will accept it. The wheelchair assistance person will either take her all the way to her DL flight in Terminal 2 or will hand her off to another wheelchair assistance person in Terminal 2. Make sure that you have requested wheelchair assistance from DL as well.

     

  • US Airways to South America - 1 or 2 bags?

    I will be flying Dublin-Philadelphia-Miami-Buenos Aires with US Airways next week. The Dublin - Philadelphia leg is done by Amerian Airlines, and I finish with US airways. US Airways seem to have a policy of 2 free checked bags to South America so I am wondering if I can check my two bags in Dublin or will I have to do it in Philadelphia? Many thanks for any advice

     

    I believe you would get 2 bags because it would fall under US Airways South America policy.

    I booked a ticket from Dallas to South Korea and it will stop at SFC for 3 hours before transferring from Virgin Air to Singapore Air. Because my flight is an international connecting flight, will my baggage transfer straight to Korea?

     

    If you purchased your tickets together then your bags will be checked through to Korea. Otherwise you will have to claim them from Virgin America and re-check them with Singapore.

  • O'Hare to Amman

    I am meeting a tour group at O'Hare, which is our hub airport, for a 9:30 pm flight to Amman. However, my flight from New Orleans to O'Hare is scheduled to arrive at 9 am. Royal Jordanian's ticket counter doesn't open until 4 pm. I'd rather not carry my large suitcase around the airport for seven hours. Do I have another option?

     

    There are no storage Lockers. You could ride the Blue Line into the city with your luggage and hang out at a coffee shop or something.

     

    Thanks

     

  • Long LAX layover, domestic to international with luggage question
    Oct 10, 2014

    I have a 9 hr layover in LAX and do not want to leave the security area as I have a meeting in a Airline Club. I Arrive on United from Austin at 1200 hrs, but Fiji Airways will not accept my checked luggage till 3 hrs before their departure at 2130 hrs. Can I just leave my checked bags in United's baggage claim till 1800 hrs and then pick it up to head to the International Terminal?

     

    You could probably do that, but there's a chance some of it could go missing or be hard to find later.

     

  • YYZ to MSP to SEA to ICN

    I am Canadian, flying to Seoul from YYZ(Toronto) to MSP(Minneapolis) to Seattle(SEA) to Incheon(ICN). Will I have to claim my luggage in Seattle and go through custom again? Layover is about 1 hour 15 minutes for each flight. and all by Delta. is that enough time?

     

    No, you will not. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto and won't have to do anything with your baggage again until you get to ICN when you will go through Korean Immigration and Customs. You should have enough time.

     

    thank you!

     

  • Sending luggage to Ohare

    We will be traveling to bangkok via Emirates. We live in Detroit Area. Is there a service that would pick up my luggage at home and deliver to ORD somewhere near the Emerites checkin area? Or at least in the same terminal? We have four 50 pound suitcases and I don't want to lug them between terminals. I don't want to check them in Detroit either. They don't have interline agreement.

     

    There is no such service. You should either give up on your plan to bring 200 lbs of baggage to bangkok with you or seek another option for getting to ORD (such as driving).

    I will be buying a bottle of duty free whisky at Gva - my flight arrives at Newark and then have a connection to Nashville - can I carry the whisky as hand luggage on my flight to Nashville

     

    No, you cannot. You have to put it in your checked baggage or mail it to yourself in Newark.

    Hi, I believe I have left my phone, a Blackberry Q10 and 3 paintings contained in a bamboo sleeve at the airport prior to my onward flight to Dubai at approx 12:30 am on the 13th of September. Could you please let me know if these have been returned, or who would be the best person to speak to regarding this matter. Kind Regards and Thanks, Stuart Alcock
