  • Pick-up baggage for layover?
    Jul 30, 2014

    I'm landing in LAX tomorrow on a flight from Vancouver, Canada, so I'll have to go through customs upon landing. I have a two hour layover before catching another flight to Indianapolis. Both flights are on American however I built the connect myself, rather than buying a pre-existing or offered layover. Will my baggage automatically transfer or will I have to claim it because of customs and then re-check my baggage?

     

    Actually you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Vancouver so you will not have to do that at LAX. All you will have to do is claim your bags then take them to AA and check them with them. This is because you bought two separate tickets.

     

  • switching from carry on to checked luggage

    After purchasing tickets with carry on luggage, I changed my mind. How do I switch it to checked luggage? Flying Frontier.

     

    Every airline is different - if you just bought your ticket airlines in the US are required to allow you to cancel for free within the first 24 hours, then you could buy the same ticket but with a checked bag. Otherwise you may be out of luck as those bag fees are non-refundable. You'll either have to go with a carry-on or pay the checked bag fee as well. If you decide to pay the checked bag fee, you can do so during online check-in for your flight.

     

    Thank you.
