    This is not the airport or any airline's website. Nobody relevant will see this message.


  • enough time to change flights
    Jan 11, 2015
    Will 2 hours be enough time to pick up bags from a domestic flight (Jet Blue) and check in for an international flight (Delta) at JFK on a Friday afternoon?


    Barely. It depends on your JetBlue flight arriving on-time.


  • Baggage - Overnight connection EWR
    Jan 6, 2015
    January 10, 2015 flying YWG - YYZ - EWR arriving EWR on AC (United 8202) at 1035 PM. Connecting next morning January 11, 2015 at 9:04 AM to United 1040 travelling to AUA. All ticketed on United. I am aware of US immigration and customs procedures in YYZ. My question is - will my bags be checked through to AUA or will I need to gather them in Newark for the night and check them at United counter in the morning? Thanks, Jim


    You will have to ask the agent in Winnipeg. I'm guessing that they will only be tagged to EWR and that you will have to claim them there and re-check them in the morning.


    Thanks Zap! I appreciate your quick reply. Jim

    How do I contact baggage claim concerning lost luggage?


    You need to contact the baggage hotline of your airline.


  • baggage when connecting flight?
    Jan 2, 2015
    for my flight I have one layover. When I get off the first plane, will I have to re check my baggage and keep it with me or will the airline move my baggage onto the second flight for me?


    It depends what airlines you are flying, whether you bought your tickets together or separately, where you are connecting, and whether your first flight is international or domestic. Answer those questions and I can answer your question!


  • Travelling from Mumbai (India) to Austin (Texas)
    Jan 1, 2015
    I am traveling from Mumbai to Newyork (JFK) and then EWR to question is I need to collect my check in baggages from JFK and take them to EWR and again check in? OR airline will take care of that....moreover, how can i commute to EWR from JFK?


    You will have to claim your baggage in JFK and take it to Newark. A taxi between JFK and EWR is about $100. You can take the JFK Airtrain to the LIRR to Penn Station and then transfer to the NJT to the Newark AirTrain. Leave at least 4 hours for your transfer.


  • Getting Luggage from Alaska terminal to Jet Blue terminal
    Dec 31, 2015
    I will be traveling from Sitka Alaska to LAX on Alaska Air with frozen fish. At LAX I have a four hour layover but need to get to the Jet Blue terminal with my luggage and fish. What is the easiest way to get my luggage and fish from terminal to terminal. Also, is there a freezer facility to store the fish during that 4 hour period?


    There is no freezer facility. The best way to get from Terminal 6 where you will arrive to Terminal 3 where you will depart is to walk. You can walk straight across the parking garages or walk along the curbfront to your left as you exit T6.

    I will be coming to DFW in the morning 7am AA, have international flight connection at 4pm in Qatar airways. Does DFW airport have clock room or luggage room, where i check in my luggage and go put of airport for shopping/lunch? Thanks


    There are no baggage storage facilities at DFW. If you would like to leave the airport during your layover, you will have to bring your bags with you.


  • Flying from Chicago to Miami
    Dec 25, 2014
    Hi, I was flying on AA from Chicago to Trinidad and I was told twice in Chicago and twice in Miami that I did not have to go through customs and recheck my bag and that my bag was checked all the way through. I had an overnight stay in Miami and so I went to baggage claim just to make sure. My bags were not there. I am in Trinidad now and my bags are NOT here. Was I supposed to go and collect my bags and then transfer it across like I had done for years? Did 4 people get it wrong? Is there a chance I will get my bags back?


    Overnight connections are a crapshoot. Your bags are probably still in Miami. If they didn't come out on the carousel there was nothing you could do. Contact AA.

    hiii ZAP I am travelling form hyderabad ( india ) to corpus christi in the middle I have Two stops one is at doha and the other is at dallas my airlines is qatar airways up to dallas and from there to corpus christi is american airlines My question is do I need to pick up my luggage and again go to check in by completing formalities like us immigration,customs and also my wait time is 3hrs is this sufficient for me even if by rare chance my flight may delay for one hour Hope so you comment soon


    Yes, in Dallas you will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go to the departure level, go through security, and take the Skylink train to your departure terminal and gate. 3 Hours is enough time.


  • Connecting in PHL
    Dec 21, 2014
    HI there, I am Flying to toronto from Dublin via PHL. Both of my flights are operated by US airways. Will I have to pick up my Checked baggage? Or will the bags be transferred for me from one plane to The next? Thanks'


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. Your arrival into Philadelphia will be like a domestic flight. All you have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will go through Canadian immigration when you get to Toronto.
