  • Do I take luggage from Japan flight through customs
    Feb 3, 2017
    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.


    Thank you very much I appreciate the post


  • United baggage
    Feb 1, 2017
    I have booked United & will have 1 23kg bag to check in. I couldn't see an option to pay for baggage when I booked. Do I pay at checkin?


    Yes, you will pay at check in.


  • getting from east to west baggage claim
    Jan 29, 2017
    I am arriving and picking up luggage in the east terminal, friend is arriving in the west terminal. How do I get me and my luggage over to the west terminal to meet up with him??


    It's just the other side of the same building on the same floor. You can just walk over there.


  • Baggage question
    Jan 28, 2017
    I will arrive at LAX terminal 8 ( united airlines from San Diego) and will continue to Sweden from terminal B. Do I need to fetch my baggage and check in again at terminal B? Thanks for all help


    If it's all the same reservation you don't need to do anything with your bags. If it's two separate reservations you'll need to claim your bags and re-check them.


  • Do I need to retrieve my checked bags at vancouver?
    Jan 28, 2017
    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!


  • Delayed baggage claim
    Jan 26, 2017
    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!


  • Delayed Baggage
    Jan 26, 2017
    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.


  • Baggage Claim
    Jan 26, 2017
    Hi my wife and LO is flying from Kathmandu, Nepal (via Fly Dubai) to Dubai and Dubai to Boston (Emirates). They have a connecting flight from Boston to PITT (Jet Airways). Does she has to go for baggage claim and recheck in at Boston Airport? I am also not sure if there are any help if some one carry a baby? Kindly advice what is the procedure for baggage? Is it okay if she will claim the baggage at PITT? Thanks in advance!


    Jet Airways flies in India. is her flight to Pittsburgh on JetBlue? Is it on the same reservation as her Emirates flight? She will have to claim her bags in Boston to go through US Customs. There is no assistance for carrying babies.

    What airlines are you flying? Yes, you will have to claim your bags in San Francisco to take them through US Customs.


    Our airline is china air. So we don't need to check out our luggage at beijing, only at san francisco airport? Is that correct? Appreciate your kind advise. Thanks...


    Is the 2 hours layover sufficient to go throuhh cutoms, immigration and recheckin luggages? Pleaase advise. Bybthe way, our airlinw form manila to beijing is cjina air and united airlines from beijing to san francisco.


  • Ottawa to LAX via YYZ
    Jan 24, 2017
    We are travelling from Ottawa to LA via Toronto - do we need to collect our baggage in Toronto and go through security?


    Yes, your bags will be waiting for you at US Immigration and Customs Preclearance in Toronto.

    I am travelling to Phillipines .Start from RDU to JFK arriving at 1244 thru Jet blue. My next flight to Taipei is at 1:15 thru EVA Air. Will i have enough time.


    Realistically, no, that is not enough time, even if the flights are on the same reservation, because you have to change terminals and go through security.


    tell me if you made it or something :)


  • Missing Baggage from MCT airport

    This is not the Muscat Airport or Biman's website. Nobody from either of those entities will read this message. Chances are your bags are still in Dhaka.

    What airline? Was it lost checked luggage or did you leave it in the terminal?


  • Camara tripod as carry on luggage
    Jan 17, 2017
    Hi I have an ultra light tripod folded maximum size 45 cm long. Can I take it as hand luggage with my camara equipment? Thanks


    Yes, I believe you could put that under the seat in front of you.


  • Transfer of Baggage
    Jan 17, 2017
    Hello, I am landing with Wesjet from Toronto (pre cleared immigration) and connecting to Emirates. The transit time is approx 2 hours. Is this enough time? Will I need to collect baggage even though I have already pre-cleared customs/immigration in Toronto for the USA. How long is the shuttle or train to the other Terminal? Thanks.


    Are your flights on one reservation or two separate reservations?


    My flights are all one ticket and reservation.


    Then all you have to do is go from Terminal A to Terminal C and go through security. You have plenty of time.
