  • Connecting Flight
    Dec 13, 2016
    Hey, I am arriving at JFK by JetBlue airlines at 12:06 pm from Buffalo ( Terminal 5) and I have a connecting flight(Air India) to New Delhi at 2:25 pm from terminal 4. Both the flights are on the same reservation. Would I have to check in my baggage again and would be there be enough time to get through security ?


    Yes, if you purchased two separate reservations you will have to claim your bags in Terminal 5, take them to Terminal 4, re-check them and go through security. It will be very difficult to do that in the time you have, but it's not impossible.

  • Will my luggage be checked in from Calgary to LA onto Melbourne flying
    Dec 12, 2016
    I would like to know if our luggage is checked in all the way from Calgary to LA and then on to Melbourne Australia flying Qantas or do we have to claim our luggage from LA and recheck them before flying out to Melbourne?


    What airline are you flying from Calgary to LA? Are both flights on the same reservation or are they two separate reservations?


    We booked only with Qantas but Qantas use westjet to fly Calgary to L.A


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. Your bags will be transferred for you. All you have to do on your way to Sydney is walk from your arrival terminal (T2) to the International Terminal, get your Qantas boarding passes if Westjet can't issue them, and then go through security.

  • First time transit
    Nov 30, 2016
    Hi, this is my first time visiting Canada. I'll be flying in from Hong Kong to Toronto and then transiting here to Saint John, NB at the end of January. I will have close to 4 hours before my flight to Saint John but I'm confused about the procedures. When I get off the plane, do I need to go through customs and border control? Do I need to pick up my luggage and then recheck in my luggage?


    Yes, you will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs. They will tell you whether or not you have to claim your bags, I believe you will. Canada is in a weird state right now where people coming from some countries have to claim their bags to go through customs and some countries don't.

    I will be travelling from FCO airport to AMS by Alitalia & have connecting flight (KLM). Do I have to re-check my baggage?


    If both flights are on the same reservation then you don't have to claim and re-check your baggage.


  • Possible to check in luggage to layover rather than final destination
    Nov 28, 2016
    I have a flight booked from Mexico City to Madrid with layovers in Toronto and Germany. I´ve decided to just stay in Toronto and ditch the two connecting flights. Is is possible to check luggage just to Toronto and now the final destination? Thanks


    You'll have to ask the airline, my guess would be no.


  • Re-check my luggage
    Nov 27, 2016
    Hello I will be traveling from Paris to the USA with a correspondence though Detroit airport. I will be travelling alone with two big luggages. Is there any chance that I get some help to transport them to the re-check stand? Thank you in advance for your answer


    No, there are no people to help you - there will be carts that you can use.


  • Connecting flight can I check bags?
    Nov 27, 2016
    Will be in SFO airport which is a international connecting flight. Can I check bags even if it's a connecting flight (to Tokyo)? Or should I call ahead to make sure I can check bags.


    What airline are you flying? Where are you flying into SFO from?


    Ana (all nippo airlines) and it's from PDX to SFO. SFO is the connecting flight to Tokyo. I think I can check in luggage since it's a different plane?


    You will check your bags with United in Portland and all you have to do in SFO is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Flight from Barcelona
    Nov 27, 2016
    I will be departing Barcelona flying thru Philadelphia to Fort Myers. Where will I be going through customs and is 2 hrs connecting time enough. This will be a May trip.


    In Philadelphia you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Luggage Transfer at CDG PARIS
    Nov 24, 2016
    Are we able to check baggage from Budapest through CDG on Air France all the way to Dallas, on our American flight from CDG to Dallas about 2.5 hours of layover??


    Are the tickets on one reservation or two separate reservations? If it's two separate reservations then no, you won't be able to check your bags through.


  • Claim checked baggage?
    Nov 21, 2016
    I am flying from Grand Rapids MI through Atlanta to Cancun. Will I have to claim any checked luggage or will it be checked through for the whole flight? All flights are on the same ticket.


    No, you will not have to claim your bags in Atlanta on your way TO Cancun.
