  • 13 hour layover do I have to recheck bags if on same ticket and carrei
    Apr 21, 2015
    Hello. I e been worried for a while now. When I initially booked my flights months ago I have a 13 hour layover in JFK. My itinerary look like this: HNL-LAX 1hiur change planes LAX-JFK JFK-MAD FOR JFK part of my itinerary it doesn't list it as a layover which for me confused. So I tweeted delta and they said I would have to recheck my bags for anything past 12 hours. When I called delta they said I should be fine up to 24 hours Last time I came in from Madrid to JFK I had a 16 hour layover. After going through customs I gave my bags to a delta rep there and it was in hold for 14 hours and arrived at my final destination So I'm confused. Which is it you think ?


    If your arrival into JFK is the same day as your flight to MAD, then your bags should be transferred for you.


    Thank you so much. I really appreciate it. Wel, my flight leaving hawaii doesn't arrive to JFK till the next day but my flight from JFK - MAD leaves on the same day . Thanks again

  • Changing from a Delta to Easyjet flight
    Apr 20, 2015
    Hello... I am flying through AMS from Atlanta on Delta and changing to and Easyjet flight. My flight arrives at 8:05 and departs at 9:50 on Easyjet. I will only have carry on. Do I have to go through passport control or can I just get off the Delta plane and walk to Easyjet? The last time I went through AMS transferred to a KLM flight and I just walked to the gate. All Terminals are connected and I will not have to exit the airport correct? My mom will be will me and may need a cart are those available there? Thank for your help


    Yes, you will have to go through passport control if your Easyjet flight is within the Schengen Area. Make sure to print out your Easyjet boarding passes before leaving the US.


    Thanks Zap... Does it take awhile to go through paasport control or is 805 to 950 enough time


  • Frankfurt connection
    Apr 20, 2015
    Hi I'll be traveling from Mexico to Poland with a connection in Frankfurt. I bought my tickets together but the layover is 1.20 min. (First flight with condor, second flight with LOT) is it enough time if I have to pick up my luggage? Thanks


    You won't have to pick up your luggage. You will just have to clear Schengen passport control and go to your departure gate. You should have enough time.


  • Anchorage to Australia
    Apr 19, 2015
    on my return flight home to Australia from Anchorage I will have a 18 hour layover in LA. Could you please advise if baggage will be checked thru or do I need to collect it in LA and reckeck. also could you please advise which terminals these flights arrive and depart. I will be departing Anchorage on flight QF4115 and departing LA on QF16. Thank you.


    Since your arrival and departure are the same day your bags should be checked through. You will arrive in Terminal 6 and depart from the International Terminal.


  • from IKA to TRS
    Apr 19, 2015
    I will be flying from IKA to TRS. I will get to FCO at 6:00 and leave FCO for TRS at 21:25 (It's about 15 hours stop). I was wondering whether I can leave the air port in this 15 hours period. what about my luggage do they send them to TRS with earlier flights or they will be in the same flight I am traveling with. do I have to carry them along during this 15 hours period. Thanks in advane


    Yes, since you will have entered the Schengen Area and will be in possession of an Italian Visa, you can leave the airport in Rome. The baggage will be held for the flight that you are travelling on. It likely will not be sent ahead of you to Trieste.


  • How early can we Check in Baggage - Emirates
    Apr 19, 2015
    We are flying Emirates from DFW, we are flying into Lovefield the day before our international departure. We don't want to take our luggage to the hotel, can we check in baggage 24 hrs before our actual departure time at DFW? OR How early can we check in the baggage? I want to check the actual bags NOT ONLINE CHECK IN. Thanks in advance, sappalle


    You cannot check your baggage until 3 or 4 hours before your flight since that is the only time the Emirates bag counter is open.


    Thank you ZAP

  • Columbus to PHL and on to Dublin Ireland
    Apr 13, 2015
    I am flying from Columbus Ohio in to PHL and then on to Dublin IE. I only have 1hr 14 mins between flights. Is this enough time to swap terminals. The entire flight is US Airways so no bag collection should be required.


    Yes, that should be enough time. All terminals at PHL are connected inside security.


  • baggae carousel from flight from Vancouver
    Apr 13, 2015
    I'm flying to IAH at the end of this month on United, if they come in at Gate E how do I get to the baggage carousel from this flight.


    It may not come into Terminal E because you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. Just follow signs to the Baggage claim as instructed by the monitors.


  • LOT airlines
    Apr 12, 2015

    It was a charter flight and as far as I know it no longer exists.


  • Duty Free Transfer
    Apr 10, 2015
    Hi! I am flying in from Australia and will be catching an internal connection flight with a 5 hour wait time. My questions is that when i get off the plane, will i be able to pack my duty free alcohol into my checked baggage before i re-check it for my connection? I have had friends who haven't checked it in and they have it confiscated... Cheers.


    Yes, when before you go through US Customs you will claim your bags, then before you re-check it, you have a chance to put the liquor in your checked bags.
