    Jan 18, 2015

  • Hou->Den->Aspen
    Jan 14, 2015
    I am traveling from Houston to Aspen with a connection in Denver. I only have 36 minutes in between the 2 flights both United. If my plane is on time, I should have no problem making my flight. I am skiing the next day in Aspen and I am worried that my luggage will not make my connecting flight if i check a bag. Can anyone help?


    Yes, there have been frequent baggage issues in Denver lately. Unfortunately you cannot carry your skis onboard. Wear your coat on the plane and put your ski pants in your carry on so if your baggage is delayed you'll at least have that and should be able to ski if you rent skis.


  • Claim and recheck baggage
    Jan 14, 2015
    I'm arriving on Southwest and departing on Silver Airways. Do I have to claim and recheck my bag?


    Yes, you do. Southwest doesn't interline bags with any other airlines.

    it is extremely difficult to first of all, find a phone number for US Airways lost & found, which is apparently different than the airport...then when i finally did find one, there is no person to talk to. You have to leave a voice mail. Surprise! The voice mail box is full. SOOOOO Frustrating! I know there are a lot of people that travel through Charlotte airport so this area can be very busy. But please make it easier.

    we have a flight from aruba to jfk then on to boston (4 hours layover). we now want to get off and stay in ny w/friends can we get our bags? There is a plane change.


    Unless your change your reservation, your bags will be sent through to Boston. You will not have an opportunity to claim them in JFK because Aruba has US Immigration and Customs preclearance.

  • enough time to change flights
    Jan 11, 2015
    Will 2 hours be enough time to pick up bags from a domestic flight (Jet Blue) and check in for an international flight (Delta) at JFK on a Friday afternoon?


    Barely. It depends on your JetBlue flight arriving on-time.


  • Baggage - Overnight connection EWR
    Jan 6, 2015
    January 10, 2015 flying YWG - YYZ - EWR arriving EWR on AC (United 8202) at 1035 PM. Connecting next morning January 11, 2015 at 9:04 AM to United 1040 travelling to AUA. All ticketed on United. I am aware of US immigration and customs procedures in YYZ. My question is - will my bags be checked through to AUA or will I need to gather them in Newark for the night and check them at United counter in the morning? Thanks, Jim


    You will have to ask the agent in Winnipeg. I'm guessing that they will only be tagged to EWR and that you will have to claim them there and re-check them in the morning.


    Thanks Zap! I appreciate your quick reply. Jim

  • baggage when connecting flight?
    Jan 2, 2015
    for my flight I have one layover. When I get off the first plane, will I have to re check my baggage and keep it with me or will the airline move my baggage onto the second flight for me?


    It depends what airlines you are flying, whether you bought your tickets together or separately, where you are connecting, and whether your first flight is international or domestic. Answer those questions and I can answer your question!


  • Travelling from Mumbai (India) to Austin (Texas)
    Jan 1, 2015
    I am traveling from Mumbai to Newyork (JFK) and then EWR to question is I need to collect my check in baggages from JFK and take them to EWR and again check in? OR airline will take care of that....moreover, how can i commute to EWR from JFK?


    You will have to claim your baggage in JFK and take it to Newark. A taxi between JFK and EWR is about $100. You can take the JFK Airtrain to the LIRR to Penn Station and then transfer to the NJT to the Newark AirTrain. Leave at least 4 hours for your transfer.


  • Getting Luggage from Alaska terminal to Jet Blue terminal
    Dec 31, 2015
    I will be traveling from Sitka Alaska to LAX on Alaska Air with frozen fish. At LAX I have a four hour layover but need to get to the Jet Blue terminal with my luggage and fish. What is the easiest way to get my luggage and fish from terminal to terminal. Also, is there a freezer facility to store the fish during that 4 hour period?


    There is no freezer facility. The best way to get from Terminal 6 where you will arrive to Terminal 3 where you will depart is to walk. You can walk straight across the parking garages or walk along the curbfront to your left as you exit T6.

    There are no baggage storage facilities at DFW. If you would like to leave the airport during your layover, you will have to bring your bags with you.
