  • Baggage Transfer
    Jan 12, 2017
    Ive planned a massive trip around the world seeing the 7 wonders. all flights and hotels are book etc. just received an email from American Airlines informing me of a change. now in stead of having 2h43 wait for the last flight to CUN from MIA, i now only have 44 Min instead from when i land from ORD to DFW. as being a new to American airlines, is this achievable? and if so is the baggage taken to the next flight for us? Many Thanks Sean S


    On the way to CUN all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate if you are coming from another place in the US. 44 minutes is doable. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.


    oh great. thats eased the pressure abit. thank you for the speedy reply

    I am Indian have Mexican visa. I am traveling from Mexico to New Delhi. From Mexico to Amsterdam I have Aeromexico and from Amsterdam to New Delhi jet airways. I have to collect my baggage and recheck in for jet airways so do I need to pass immigration in Amsterdam? Kindly help me


    Yes, to collect your baggage you will have to go through Immigration in Amsterdam and will therefore need a full Schengen Transit visa issued by the Netherlands.


  • Delayed baggage

    My baggage did not follow me from DFW to ORF on Jan 9th. It was sent instead sent to CLT on Jan 10th and remains there until someone puts it on a flight to ORF! I have called AA numerous times and they say they have sent messages to CLT and until someone sees the message all they can do is apologize for the delay. If someone from CLT monitors the Page please check your messages!


  • ANA re-check in baggage.
    Jan 11, 2017
    Do I need to re-check in my baggage if my flight is from MSP to SFO? And will 1h 25m be sufficient?


    If both flights are on the same reservation then you don't need to do anything with your bags in SFO - just go to your departure gate.

    Hello, American Airlines had a delay in my baggage and I had an international flight at 7:45 pm on January 8th. The delayed baggage was suppose to arrive beforehand but it didn't arrive until almost 11 pm after I left. I need my luggage to be mailed to my location abroad. Is the airport able to take care of this? I still have my bag tags


    This is not the airport's website. Baggage is handled solely by the airline, not the airport. You need to contact American to get your bags.

    My baggage did not arrive with me from DFW to Boston. American airline has received my baggage since Sunday the 7th. A third party delivery company picks up baggage for delivery. In order for the company to pick up my baggage American Airline Baggage department has to create Delivery order. I have been calling them to get the status. All they can do is send the baggage department email. No phone number is published for anyone to call. I was told to go to the airport to pick up luggage. I am not able to go to the airport. Does anyone know of a service I can call and pay to have them pick up my luggage?


  • Avoid United
    Jan 9, 2017
    Paid $50 to check bags from Memphis to corpus via Houston on United. Bags were never transferred to connecting flight. Called luggage # agent gave us....40 minute wait to speak to rep. Avoid these incompetent hacks at all costs


  • Travel with hunting gun
    Jan 9, 2017
    We are traveling with a gun for hunting, do we need to allow extra time for checking in at the airport ?


    Yes, because it must be declared at the check-in counter. Allow an extra 15-20 minutes.


    Zap- thanks, I appreciate it, hard to get an answer online,

  • Connecting flight terminal
    Jan 5, 2017
    Hello i have a connected flight from IST to CLE. I have read that bags are transferred without me checking them in. Is it true for a connected flight? And how do I buy a ticket for the AirTrain to get from terminal B to C? Thank you


    That is incorrect. You have to claim your bags to go through US customs. You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the AirTrain to your departure terminal (A or C) and go through security. You don't have to buy a ticket to take the airtrain just between terminals - it's free.

  • No luggage

    Arrived in Coppenhagen from San Francisco on the 29th of December on my way to Palma de Mallorca . Still no luggage!!! And no news. No one helps. Customer service for SAS says I have to call Copenhagen myself. Come on!!!! Very disappointing


    This is not the Copenhagen Airport's website. Unfortunately, nobody here can help you.
