    You need to contact El Al airlines directly.


  • No one here to work!
    Dec 22, 2013
    I am waiting here trying to claim my baggage from American Airlines in Gulfport and there is no one here to talk to! The. Other airlines tried to find an employee and they can't even find an American Airlines person! Don't travel with them ever...nothing but problems!


  • Do I need to re-check in the baggage?
    Dec 22, 2013
    Below listed is my itinerary. Tampa --> JFK --> Dubai --> India. Tampa to JFK is operated by American Airlines and rest of the flight is operated by Emirates airlines. Will be arriving JFK at 21:30 and the Emirates flight departs at 23:00. Do, I need to re-check in the baggage at JFK (2 check in bags)? or would they check them in all the way to India from Tampa?. If I need to re-check in the baggage, would an hour and half be enough for me to make it to the flight?


    If both tickets were bought on the same reservation then American should be able to check the bags all the way though to India as American and Emirates have an interline agreement.

    My son checked in at Austin Texas. It was very crowded. He asked the attendant there if he needs to leave his bag at the baggage check in. She said yes and continued on her way. He continued on to his terminal and waited to board the plane. He flew from Austin to Atlanta G.A. . Waited for his bag and no bag arrived. His bag is lost and he just moved to Texas alone. Works very hard and long hours. He was finally able to afford to buy his Grandfather and younger brother and myself his mother and his father....Christmas presents. ALL of his Christmas gifts for his family that he was so proud he could afford and pick out special things. They are all gone. He is 25. Basically not much money. Living in a new state with no friends and working long hours for the special things he was so proud and very happy to share with his family for Christmas. He has never been able to do that before. I feel terrible. I'm his Mom and I want to help him. He even borrowed the bag it is all in. OH and all his clothes were in there. He is here with only what he arrived in. The bag is a duffle type soft bag. It is a red and black with Marlboro printed on the sides bag. Black handles on top and a soft unzippable small book bag type detachable bag as one of the sides. PLEASE!! HELP!!!!


    I'm sorry. He then left Atlanta G.A. and flew to Columbia S.C. airport. That was the end of his trip. Thank you. He has also already filed a claim. He arrived yesterday and filed the claim the same day. So far they can't locate it.


  • Horns to Tennessee
    Dec 15, 2013
    I am a Houston Texans Super Fan and wear Horns to All the games. They are completely made of plastic....can I wear them on the plane, or store them under the seat or in overhead if they fit????


    think!! These horns can be used as a weapon - I doubt very much that TSA would allow you to either wear them or put them in your carry-on bag. Try:

  • safe and reliable Asian airlines?
    Dec 1, 2013
    I'm planning a trip from the U.S. to Yangon, Myanmar. I would like recommendations on what airlines to take to get there, either from from JFK or LAX. It looks like I'll have to take one of Asian-based carriers and would like information on their safety and reliability, as well as experiences anyone has had with them. The main carriers seem to be All Nippon Airlines, China Southern, Korean Air, China Air. Thanks for any help you can provide.


    All airlines you listed serve major airports worldwide & have great track records.

  • Checked Baggage
    Oct 31, 2013
    I am leaving from Eppley Airfield in Omaha NE at 6am, I land in HOU at 8:30, I then connect to depart to Tokyo Japan. I was wondering if I will have to pick up my checked baggage that came from Omaha, or will that fly straight to Japan? Thanks


    In general, this rule applies: If you booked both legs of the flight on one ticket, or if the separate Airlines belong to the same airline alliance, or your incoming airline has a code-share agreement with your outgoing airline - your bags will automatically be transferred. For terminal details & how to transfer between terminals, I suggest you open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • Minneapolis- JFK - Tel Aviv
    Oct 15, 2013
    We have two choices on our connection in JFK going on to Tel Aviv. If we take a flight out of MSP arriving at JFK at 6:49 and have a flight to Tel Aviv (ALL flights are Delta) at 9:20 will that be enough time. Would are bags be checked through to Tel Aviv in MSP? Do we have to take the shutttle to another terminal? The other flight would be a 9 hour lay over. If we choose this could we leave airport and return later with our bags still checked through?


    You would arrive at JFK at Terminal 2 and will be picked up by a Delta bus to your connecting flight with Delta at Terminal 4 - you have enough time for transfer as bags will be checked through.


  • witch terminal do I take from thunder bay to chicago then orlando flor
    Oct 11, 2013
    can you tell me witch terminal will I arrive from thunder bay to chicago then in chicago witch terminal do I have to take to board flight to orlando florida,and were do I pass customs for my luggage,concern my first time flying.


    Thunder Bay Aport (YQT) is a small airport with no U.S. Customs clearance. Therefore, on arrival at Chicago Airport (which one: Midway MDW or O'Hare ORD??) you need to go through passport check, pick up your checked bags, go through customs & re-check-in your bag before proceeding to your connecting gate. I suggest you open (or mdw), then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text. You Arrival at, and departure from, the Airport depends on the airlines you take.
