Please advise - I'll be traveling to Tokyo from CLE via UA all the way. Do I need to go through the U.S. Immigration and Custom and recheck in my luggage or will it ship all the way from CLE to Tokyo? I will arrived into Denver at 10:33 am and departing at 12:30 pm for Tokyo - that's about 2 hrs. Is this connection time good enough? Thanks.
In Denver 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 enough time.
Sorry, I thought you were going From Tokyo to Cleveland. On the way to Tokyo all you have to do in Denver is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.
Thank you so much for your prompt reply!
Hi - I intend to purchase a domestic flight from Ohio to SFO via UA. However, I'd like to know should I transit from Chicago or Denver and since there'll be a one "stopover" - can you kindly advise the minimum connection time. Do I have to go through the U.S. immigration and customs pre-clearance at Chicago or Denver?! I know there's a non-stop flight but I'm not able to take that flight on that day. Appreciate your kind advise.
There is no US Immigration or Customs when traveling on domestic flights. Transiting Denver is generally a bit easier but Chicago isn't bad either.
Thank you for your quick response. Supposedly I'd travelled on the flight from Ohio and transit at Denver. Are you saying that I'd only have to walk over to the departure gate for SFO? And so, my luggage will be sent all the way from Ohio to SFO to be picked up upon arrival? Will I be able to make the connection within 1~1.5 hours?! Thanks again!
Yes, that is all you have to do to make your connection.
Thank you so much again for your time and the prompt response!
I am flying united from terminal B and my son is flying American from terminal A, can we pass between the terminals without going through security?
Yes, you can. Also, they are just concourses, not terminals.
Seems like I can't find the exact combination in a previous post.

Flying Air Canada: YVR through YYZ to final destination LGA.
1. Which city do we go through customs?
2. Do our checked bags go all the way to Laguardia or do we need to pickup and drop again in Toronto.

Thank You
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. You should not have to claim your bags in Toronto.
Im in the UK. I've booked flights with United Airlines for an upcoming holiday. With European carriers I've never encountered schedule changes before....but I've had three already with South West. Two were acceptable, the third made the trip difficult and UA were able to change me onto the flight using the time slot for the original flight i had booked on. I've now ended up on flights for both outgoing and return that are operated by Lufthansa. Are these less likely to be subject to further schedule changes, so you think?
Yes, Lufthansa changes their schedules less often then United.
''m flying AA all the way from PHX to KUL with connecting flights at DFW and HKG. At which airport(s) do I have to claim, recheck my bags and clear Customs before reaching KUL?
None, you won't see your bags until you get to Kuala Lumpur. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
Hello There,
I'm coming from India and going to Saskatoon.
Do I have to take the bags out at Toronto or not

I will not have enough time

I hope your children have children's luggage ?? As on this website Without this they cant travel even if the law will allow))
Thanks for the spam, loser.
Can anyone tell me with certainty if I will have to recheck my luggage in MIA arriving from LHR and going to STT? Aparently there is a way that the luggage gets patched through if your end destination is not in the US - but then what is USVI considered as? US, no? So anyone knows for sure? I am asking as I only have 1h 40 min for the connection
USVI is considered part of the US for immigration and customs purposes. So yes, you will have to claim your bags in Miami.
i have separate booking arriving at Terminal 1 - cayman airways 9:45pm and deparature terminal 4 - china southern 1:45am. can just re check my luggage or need to bring it to terminal 4
You will have to bring your bags with you to Terminal 4.
thank you..
