I fly from Japan to SF and then to Sacramento. We are going to get picked up in SF and not continuing my flying to Sacto. Will we have our check-in luggage with us going through customs so it will not be sent to Sacto.
Yes, you will claim your bags in San Francisco to go through US Customs. After clearing customs just rip the tags off and don't re-check them.
I'm flying to China from the US, with an intentional overnight layover in Vancouver. When I arrive in Vancouver, what will happen to my checked luggage until the second leg of my flight the next day? Will it be kept at the airport or will I need to retrieve it and recheck it the next day? Can I request to send my checked luggages directly to my final destination?Thanks so much for responding!
My son filed a delayed baggage claim, but was told they would send him the file reference # the next day. Why couldn't they give it to him right away? Now we need to wait a whole day before we can try tracking his bag!
My son flew from Dallas to Sydney on Tuesday. He and several others were told their luggage was not put on their flight due to headwinds. How do I know if it made it on the next outgoing flight? My travel agent said the next flight was sold out. Would his delayed luggage take priority over that plane's passengers?
Delayed baggage is unlikely to take precedence over passengers. They may send it on another airline or via one of their flights to Los Angeles.
