I am flying from Atlanta to heathrow on Delta and can't figure out if I check in at the domestic terminal or the international.
You check in at the International Terminal.
I am planning a flight from Vancouver to Chicago. The stop over is only 1 hour in Chicago. Is US customs / visa done in YVR and will that leave me enough time in Chicago?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in Chicago, assuming all flights are on the same reservation, is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. That is enough time.
My flight is to Dammam,Saudi Arabia from Salt Lake City, I will be arriving on a Southwest Flight at 12:25 p.m. The Saudi Airlines flight is at 3:00, do I have enough time to get my bags, and them make it through security? Does the airport have any porters to help transport me, and my bags from terminal 1 to the international terminal?
Southwest does not transfer bags to or from any other airlines, so yes, you will have to claim your bags, take them to Terminal 1, and re-check them with Saudi. There are no prters.
Fly from Seattle on Alaska AS474 to LAX, then Qantas QF12 to Sydney, Australia. One booking, but two airlines, do I need re-check luggage? We have 2 hours in LAX.
No, you don't have to re-check your bags. Just walk through the tunnels through T5 to T4 and then the connector building to the TBIT.
Flying AA Vancouver BC to Puebla Mex. do i need to pick up my bags in Dallas? Thank-you.
No, you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Vancouver and there is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.
I was advised by booking agent when I booked from Anchorage to NZ via Vancouver that we would be ticketed all the way through and bags would be transferred automatically from Air Canada to AirNZ in Vancouver. Is this correct? we only have 1hr45mins between flights
Yes, that is correct, you just have to go through Canadian passport control and to your departure gate.
Am I allowed to bring a hair straightener and hair curler in my checked bag? I have checked the TSA website and it doesn't say much about it. If you've personally done this please do tell me! personal experience is always best! Let me know your experience. Also i'm flying with Spirit Airlines from OAK to LAX don't know if that info is needed.

OH and also i plan on bring a board game (monopoly) with me in my checked bag is that allow? have you ever brought any board games in your checked bag?

I plan on also bringing a console mic with me its in it package can i do that with my checked bag?

Thank you!
Yes, of course, you can put all of those things in your checked baggage. Why wouldn't you?
i just wanted to make sure i was allowed
Hi, I read that i have to go down stairs to claim my baggage after i arrive at LAX? Wouldn't it take me while to go down there? How is there one rotation carrier luggage thing that will be specially for my plane that i just arrived ine?
It won't take you long to go downstairs and in fact, everyone has to go down there to exit the terminal. Your flight will be assigned a baggage claim carousel. Other flights may also be assigned the same carousel.
I booked through Expedia and they told me to print out my itinerary and use it as a ticket. Is this even possible? I am very worried. It has a confirmation number
Your ticket is tied to your confirmation number. You don't have to print out anything. You will check in either at the airport or online before your departure using your confirmation number.
Thank you so much. I will try checking in early then I will not stress.
My husband and I are flying from Montréal to Rome through Philadelphia. Will we need to recheck our baggages and go through customs and security in Philadelphia? First time we not taking a direct flight!
On your way to Rome you won't have to do anything with your bags in philadelphia as you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal. On the way back, if you are flying the same route, in Philadelphia you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security in Philadelphia.
Thank you very much!
