  • Baggage and curbside check in
    Mar 16, 2015
    May i drop off several pieces of luggage for curbside check in before i park my car?


    If it's just you, no, you can't leave your car on the curb that long.


    Am I allowed to find a porter at the curb to hold it for me until i park. The problem is i have two large 50lb suitcases and then a carry on and it is too much for me to park and haul.

    I fly from Kalispell to Seattle in July. I notice my email confirmation has OPC opposite luggage. When I booked flight online, there was nowhere to book & pay for 1 checkin bag. Can I pay for a checkin bag on day of flight?


    Yes, you can pay with credit card at online check in or at the airport.

    Flying international, I have a 10 hour layover at JFK before changing to another airline. What do I do with my luggage for 10 hours from terminal 4 to terminal 5 ? Do I have to go through security again?


    Yes, you will have to go through security before your flight from Terminal 5. The JetBlue check-in counter is open pretty much all the time. If your bags aren't tagged through to JetBlue. You can check them with JetBlue when you get to T5 (assuming your 10 hours isn't overnight, in which case you won't be able to check your bags with JetBlue until around 4 AM). If you give me more details about your first flight and the times of your flights I can help you more.

    I am flying from Moscow to Boston and have a connection in JFK. I have one checked bag. Do I have to claim my bag and recheck it in JFK for customs control?


    Yes, in JFK you will go through US Immigration, claim your bag, go through US Customs, then re-check your bag then go through security and to your departure gate.

    Mar 10, 2015
    Hi there I am flying from Boise, Idaho to Rio with a 10 hour layover in IAH. Will I need to claim my bags in Houston or will they be checked all the way through? I am flying United all on one ticket. Thank you for the help


    Yes, they will be checked all the way through. You will not have to claim them in Houston.

    We are flying home from vegas in June with Alaska air Our flight leaves Las Vegas with a one hour layover in Seattle before leaving for victoria Does anyone know if .... 1) our bags are checked all the way from vegas to Victoria 2) a one hour layover is long enough to make our next flight


    Yes, your bags will be checked through to Victoria. Yes, an hour should be enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Traveling to LAS from LHR connecting in Atlanta, inbound DL031 arives at 19:35 and the outbound DL1107 departs on 20:36. Is it feasible in 61 minutes?


    Yes, that is feasible. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart.


    Will there be enough time to proceed through immigration and customs and check lugage back in?


    You do not go through US immigration or claim/recheck your baggage when exiting the US.


  • 55 minute connection time
    Feb 27, 2015
    I'm flying from Santa Barbara to NY next week, and my connection is in PHX and I have 55 minutes connection time. I am flying with US airways express-skywest from SB to PHX, and with US airways from PHX to NY. Both in terminal 4 in PHX. If I choose to check in one bag in SB, do I have to re-check the bag in PHX? Or will it automatically be transferred from my SB flight to NY flight in PHX? Thank you.


    You will not have to do anything with your bag in PHX. Just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

Do we have to collect our bags and go back through security to get to our flight or can the bags been sent through from our original destination? We have about 3 hrs time between the two flights. Thank You.


  • My baggage with UA1151 connection CA996 is missing
    Feb 23, 2015
    I was put on AA187 from Chicago directly to Beijing but my baggage was sent to Houston with UA1151, then it is missing. I think the baggage should have been on CA996 and then removed. Where has it gone?


    I don't know how your baggage got put on the wrong airline. How do you know it was put on UA1151? Was your United flight cancelled and then you were initially rebooked through Houston but later rebooked on the AA Nonstop to Beijing? If so you probably need to contact the United baggage office. It is probably in Houston and was not boarded on the Air China flight because you weren't on the passenger manifest.


    Thanks. I contacted United baggage service and was told that my baggage is in Houston now so I guess it must have been on US1151 from Chicago to Houston but I was asked to file a claim to AA, which I already did 36 hours ago. But AA still cannot locate the baggage.


    That's a long story. I first booked UA851 from Chicago, which I missed due to mechanical inspection of previous flight UA1626 from ALB to Chicago, so I was rerouted on UA1151 and CA996 but when I arrive in Chicago, UA customer service managed to put me on AA187 which is a direct flight from Chicago to Beijing. I was on AA187 and arrived in Beijing but just found my baggage did not arrive with AA187.

    All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All Delta gates at JFK are connected inside security. If your first flight is on-time you should have enough time.

    we'll be flying from Edmonton to Singapore, with a stop in Seattle and Tokyo. All the flights will be operated by Delta Airlines. Do we need to claim our baggage in Seattle and re-check it in again?


    No, you will not. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Edmonton.

  • International Flight
    Feb 19, 2015
    I am flying from Little Rock to Montego Bay with a layover in Houston. Will I need to re-check my luggage and go back through security?


    No you will not. There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. You just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.
