  • Lost Giraffe Print Luggage through American Airlines
    Dec 28, 2013
    Hi, I can't seem to get in contact with American Airline's lost luggage office, but my bags have been missing for 4 days now. I have filed a claim and was told that my bags were in DFW, but there apparently hasn't been much done to get my bags to GDL. I need help contacting AA staff! My luggage stands out a lot because it is very girly and has giraffe print.


    Also, forgot to add that the number 972-425-2465 is just not working for me. I can't seem to get past the part where it asks me for the last four digits of the number I am calling. Help.


    Try AA's 'Delayed Baggage site:


  • United where is my luggage
    Dec 26, 2013
    I flew from Frankfurt, Germany on the 21st of December with a connection through Chicago O'Hare to Springfield, Missouri, we boarded our connecting flight to depart ORD at 2009 hours, once boarded they cancelled the flight and sent us out to fend for our self's without returning my bag, it has been 5 days since United has scanned my bags and every representative I call is in India or the Philippines, they cannot help find this bag.... why is it so hard to speak to an agent in America, why does the airline use cheap off shore call centers to conduct their affairs??

    You need to contact El Al airlines directly.


  • No one here to work!
    Dec 22, 2013
    I am waiting here trying to claim my baggage from American Airlines in Gulfport and there is no one here to talk to! The. Other airlines tried to find an employee and they can't even find an American Airlines person! Don't travel with them ever...nothing but problems!


  • Do I need to re-check in the baggage?
    Dec 22, 2013
    Below listed is my itinerary. Tampa --> JFK --> Dubai --> India. Tampa to JFK is operated by American Airlines and rest of the flight is operated by Emirates airlines. Will be arriving JFK at 21:30 and the Emirates flight departs at 23:00. Do, I need to re-check in the baggage at JFK (2 check in bags)? or would they check them in all the way to India from Tampa?. If I need to re-check in the baggage, would an hour and half be enough for me to make it to the flight?


    If both tickets were bought on the same reservation then American should be able to check the bags all the way though to India as American and Emirates have an interline agreement.

    My son checked in at Austin Texas. It was very crowded. He asked the attendant there if he needs to leave his bag at the baggage check in. She said yes and continued on her way. He continued on to his terminal and waited to board the plane. He flew from Austin to Atlanta G.A. . Waited for his bag and no bag arrived. His bag is lost and he just moved to Texas alone. Works very hard and long hours. He was finally able to afford to buy his Grandfather and younger brother and myself his mother and his father....Christmas presents. ALL of his Christmas gifts for his family that he was so proud he could afford and pick out special things. They are all gone. He is 25. Basically not much money. Living in a new state with no friends and working long hours for the special things he was so proud and very happy to share with his family for Christmas. He has never been able to do that before. I feel terrible. I'm his Mom and I want to help him. He even borrowed the bag it is all in. OH and all his clothes were in there. He is here with only what he arrived in. The bag is a duffle type soft bag. It is a red and black with Marlboro printed on the sides bag. Black handles on top and a soft unzippable small book bag type detachable bag as one of the sides. PLEASE!! HELP!!!!


    I'm sorry. He then left Atlanta G.A. and flew to Columbia S.C. airport. That was the end of his trip. Thank you. He has also already filed a claim. He arrived yesterday and filed the claim the same day. So far they can't locate it.


  • Horns to Tennessee
    Dec 15, 2013
    I am a Houston Texans Super Fan and wear Horns to All the games. They are completely made of plastic....can I wear them on the plane, or store them under the seat or in overhead if they fit????


    think!! These horns can be used as a weapon - I doubt very much that TSA would allow you to either wear them or put them in your carry-on bag. Try:

  • safe and reliable Asian airlines?
    Dec 1, 2013
    I'm planning a trip from the U.S. to Yangon, Myanmar. I would like recommendations on what airlines to take to get there, either from from JFK or LAX. It looks like I'll have to take one of Asian-based carriers and would like information on their safety and reliability, as well as experiences anyone has had with them. The main carriers seem to be All Nippon Airlines, China Southern, Korean Air, China Air. Thanks for any help you can provide.


    All airlines you listed serve major airports worldwide & have great track records.

  • Checked Baggage
    Oct 31, 2013
    I am leaving from Eppley Airfield in Omaha NE at 6am, I land in HOU at 8:30, I then connect to depart to Tokyo Japan. I was wondering if I will have to pick up my checked baggage that came from Omaha, or will that fly straight to Japan? Thanks


    In general, this rule applies: If you booked both legs of the flight on one ticket, or if the separate Airlines belong to the same airline alliance, or your incoming airline has a code-share agreement with your outgoing airline - your bags will automatically be transferred. For terminal details & how to transfer between terminals, I suggest you open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.
