  • Claim luggage and get onto different flight
    Dec 29, 2016
    I'm flying from Bonaire to Calgary on January 29, connecting through Houston. I want to change my plans, get a different flight to go to mazatlan for a week before returning to Calgary on February 4th. Can I collect my luggage on Houston and take a different flight to Mazatlan on January 29?


    Your bags will be sent through to Calgary since it's an International to International connection.


    Thanks for the quick response!

    Dec 29, 2016
    I am flying JetBlue from Buffalo, NY and then flying out from JFK to Taipei on China Air. Can I check my bags all the way to Taipei from the Buffalo Aurport?


    If both flights are on the same reservation, yes, you can. if it's two separate reservations, no, you can't.

    Dec 29, 2016
    Hi i am traveling from texas to lax and arriving at terminal 4. I need to claim my baggage and transfer to tom bradley international terminal for an international flighht. Is there any way that I can reach TBIT from terminal 4 baggage claim without exiting the terminal?

  • Sufficient time in layover?
    Dec 26, 2016
    I have an American Airlines flight from San Jose (Costa Rica) to MIA due to arrive at 5.10pm and then an international flight to Australia with Qatar leaving at 7.40pm also from MIA. Is that a sufficient layover when I have checked baggage? I am unsure of the terminals.

  • Bag Being Held Hostage
    Dec 23, 2016
    My bag is being held at the airport and they still have not scheduled a pickup for it. What should I do?!? No one answers the phone at the baggage desk and they have no answers for me. All of my infant son's stuff is in that bag and we desperately need it. Any suggestions?


    Go to the airport? I'm guessing you were flying Frontier?


  • Holiday travel - longer checked baggage lines?
    Dec 21, 2016
    Flying from DTW to DEN on United this Friday, 12/23 - flight leaves at 4:40pm. About how much time will it take to check a bag? (Thinking of taking the Michigan Flyer to the airport but the only time I can book is to arrive at 3:20 - not sure if that is enough time)


    That should be enough time. Check in lines at United are rarely long.


    Thank you!!


  • Delayed Baggage
    Dec 20, 2016
    Going on over 48 hours now of delayed baggage with United Airlines. Calling airline results in over 2 hour wait just to speak with an agent. Any tips on how to retrieve our bags (they were last scanned arriving in YYC last night)?


    Are you in Calgary? If so try to get to the United Airlines bag office - if you can't get to the bag office, go to the check-in counter and ask them to call the bag office.

    If your first flight is on JetBlue and both flights are on the same reservation then all you have to do in Boston is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

  • LHR-mia-au
    Dec 18, 2016
    I am comming flying LHR - MIA - AUA all with AA flights, with only a 2,5 hour Connection in Miami, but I still cannot find a traight answer if I need to recheck bags in Miami. On their own webpage Miami Airport it states that it depends on airline,, most internet pages I've visited say that I need to re-check my bags. I have boarding pass en luggage tag all the way to AUA. Who has updated info, which I can trust, do I need to recheck bags in Miami or will they go all the way through. Regards


    Since the connection is international to International all on AA, then you don't have to claim your bags in Miami. However, you will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security.


  • Connecting flights in miami
    Dec 17, 2016
    I have a flight from D.C to Miam then Miami to St Lucia. Will I have to get bags go through customs and security and recheck my bags? If so my flight lands in Miami at like 8:45 and then the flight to St Lucia starts boarding at 9:06. I don't think that's enough time.


    If both flights are on American that is enough time. You don't have to do anything with your bags. Just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
