  • connecting flight
    Aug 1, 2016
    I am traveling from ATH to MIA via LHR and JFK with BA. I have 2h and 30 min time left in JFK before the next flight to MIA. Do I have to go through customs, immigration and claim luggages at the JFK too ? So I have to go through out the whole process twice ??


  • Toronto to Warsaw
    Jul 31, 2016
    I'm currently flying Toronto to Warsaw with a layover in AMS. Going Toronto to AMS is Jet Airways, and AMS to to Warsaw is LOT. The layover is only 1 hour and 20 minutes. I'm worried this is not enough time to make the connection, should I look at rebooking?


    disregard, posted in the wrong section

  • Delayed flight
    Jul 31, 2016
    My flight to Newark was rerouted to Syracuse. I finally landed in Newark but missed my connecting flight to Stockholm. My bag was checked through to Stockholm, Sweden. What is your protocol to get bags to their destination with delayed passengers. I was put on a later flight to Zurich and then to Stockholm. . I am in Stockholm with no bag. When will it arrive??


    You will have to contact United baggage service. They will probably put it on the next nonstop from Newark to Stockholm.


  • Last minute FREAKOUT!!!
    Aug 3, 2016
    Okay, I do this all the time. My trip comes closer and I start going into last minute panic mode. I'm very OCD, and enjoy structure. Help a guy out. I'm flying on United, from Newark International, Terminal C. I will have checked in online 24 hours prior, as well as paid for my baggage that needs to be checked. I walk in through the doors of terminal C with my luggage that needs to be checked (no carry on for this man). What do I do now, step by step, from those doors to my gate?


    You will go to the United check-in desk, check your bags, then go to the security checkpoint, go through security, and follow the signs to your departure gate.


    Alright, but even though I checked in and payed for my luggage online over 12 hours before, will I still go to the United booth? Or is there a separate booth where I just check my baggage with my print out confirmation?


  • Securing Baggage

    We would like to know if there is a secure area or locker to put baggage while we take the mass transit into Providence for a few hours.


    At what airport?


  • baggage question
    Jul 30, 2016
    Hello, we are going to fly from BUD to LPA via BCN. From BUD to BCN with Wizzair, from BCN to LPA with Vueling, two different reservations. Do we need to collect our baggages at BCN or enough at LPA? Thank you!


    Yes, you will have to claim your bags in Barcelona and re-check them with Vueling. Wizzair does not transfer bags to other airlines.


  • YQG to PMO in Aug.
    Jul 28, 2016
    Flying from Windsor to Palermo via Toronto/Roma. Air Canada then Alitalia to PMO. Booked together as one ticket with Air Canada. Do we claim checked baggage in Rome and clear customs there, or in Palermo?


    No, you won't have to claim your bags in Rome, just go through passport control.

    My mom is coming tomorrow from Russia, to T4, and her connecting flight is in couple hours from the same terminal. How the check in baggage will work, worried as she doesnt speak english


    Are her tickets on two separate reservations or one reservation? What airlines is she flying?


    If she has one ticket, including the connection one, she does not have to pick up the luggage. Better to check with check in services. Usually for the connection, she has to go through the security services and then come back to the terminal from which another plane departs. If she speaks Russiia, there are many airport workers who speak Russian in Israel


    Thank you, she has two different reservations, though both flights are at t4.


    AB is completely incorrect anyways and thinks your mom is connecting in israel. She will have to go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, re-check her bags at the check in counter for her second airline, and go through security and to her departure gate. She reasonably needs at least 2.5 hours to make this connection.


  • Missing Items from Delayed Baggage
    Jul 27, 2016
    I was flying from Tel Aviv to Toronto . My suitcase was delayed and has not arrived in Toronto on July 21. I got it back only on July 24 and three valuable items were missing, my wedding ring among them. It was there when I checked it in. I have requested to open an investigation with El Al airline and track who has an access to my suitcase that was kept in the storage area for 3 days. What else can I do? The ring is of a very important value to me.


    There's not much else you can do.


  • my Luggage was lost
    Jul 27, 2016
    I flew on a ATL flight DL85 and my Luggage has not arrived from France. Then I arrived in Birmingham, BHM flight DL 1224. How can I get my baggage in Birmingham and when? Tag Luggage: 0555SU 332154. I'm really nervous because I changed the arrival address.


    You need to call Delta baggage services. Posting here won't do anything.


  • Checking in baggage
    Jul 25, 2016
    Flying into FLL from Kansas in Southwest and connecting to Lima-Peru in JetBlue. Can I check in my luggage in Kansas all the way to Lima? Thanks


    No, you cannot. Southwest does not interline baggage with any other airlines. You will have to claim it in FLL, take it to JetBlue, re-check it, and go through security. You need at least 2 hours for this transfer, preferably a bit more.


  • Luggage from EWR to JFK?
    Jul 24, 2016
    Within a single United ticket, I arrive to EWR and 12 hours later I depart from JFK. Is it possible that they transfer the checked luggage from airport to the other or should I carry it myself? Thank you!


    You will HAVE to transfer the baggage yourself. Also, United doesn't fly to or from JFK.
