  • from IKA to TRS
    Apr 19, 2015
    I will be flying from IKA to TRS. I will get to FCO at 6:00 and leave FCO for TRS at 21:25 (It's about 15 hours stop). I was wondering whether I can leave the air port in this 15 hours period. what about my luggage do they send them to TRS with earlier flights or they will be in the same flight I am traveling with. do I have to carry them along during this 15 hours period. Thanks in advane


    Yes, since you will have entered the Schengen Area and will be in possession of an Italian Visa, you can leave the airport in Rome. The baggage will be held for the flight that you are travelling on. It likely will not be sent ahead of you to Trieste.


  • How early can we Check in Baggage - Emirates
    Apr 19, 2015
    We are flying Emirates from DFW, we are flying into Lovefield the day before our international departure. We don't want to take our luggage to the hotel, can we check in baggage 24 hrs before our actual departure time at DFW? OR How early can we check in the baggage? I want to check the actual bags NOT ONLINE CHECK IN. Thanks in advance, sappalle


    You cannot check your baggage until 3 or 4 hours before your flight since that is the only time the Emirates bag counter is open.


    Thank you ZAP

  • Columbus to PHL and on to Dublin Ireland
    Apr 13, 2015
    I am flying from Columbus Ohio in to PHL and then on to Dublin IE. I only have 1hr 14 mins between flights. Is this enough time to swap terminals. The entire flight is US Airways so no bag collection should be required.


    Yes, that should be enough time. All terminals at PHL are connected inside security.


  • baggae carousel from flight from Vancouver
    Apr 13, 2015
    I'm flying to IAH at the end of this month on United, if they come in at Gate E how do I get to the baggage carousel from this flight.


    It may not come into Terminal E because you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. Just follow signs to the Baggage claim as instructed by the monitors.


  • LOT airlines

    I know that LOT was flying from cancun to warsawa. Do you know if it was seasonal and if its possible to take that flight for summer 2015?


    It was a charter flight and as far as I know it no longer exists.


  • Duty Free Transfer
    Apr 10, 2015
    Hi! I am flying in from Australia and will be catching an internal connection flight with a 5 hour wait time. My questions is that when i get off the plane, will i be able to pack my duty free alcohol into my checked baggage before i re-check it for my connection? I have had friends who haven't checked it in and they have it confiscated... Cheers.


    Yes, when before you go through US Customs you will claim your bags, then before you re-check it, you have a chance to put the liquor in your checked bags.

  • first time flyer
    Apr 5, 2015
    I am flying for the first time in a few days. I am flying with Delta airlines and am checking my luggage at the airport in Denver then transferring to another plane from Atlanta to Columbus, GA. Do I need to worry about the checked luggage? Will it be transferred for me? When I get ready to transfer planes what needs to happen first. Thanks for your help, I like to know in advance so I am somewhat prepared.


    Yes, your baggage will be transferred for you. You don't have to do anything in Atlanta other than go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all gates inside security.

  • International Arrival baggage collection onward domestic travel
    Apr 1, 2015
    Hi, My wife and daughter will be arriving at LAX Tom Bradley via Cathay Pacific from Hong Kong. I know we will have to collect bags at LAX and clear customs and immigration. Can they recheck in the bags immediately after the clearance. I bought the tickets together not separately. They will be further travelling to San Diego Appreciate any information


    Since they bought tickets together, yes, their bags will be tagged through to SAN and they can re-check them at the transfer desk in the TBIT at LAX. They will follow the signs for connecting passengers once they clear customs.


    Thank you very much


  • Baggage check from Swiss to Jet Blue
    Apr 1, 2015
    I have a flight arrival at JFK via Swiss. Have a connection with Jet Blue. After Customs how do we drop off the baggage for the next Jet Blue flight. Is 2 hrs enough time?


    Swiss and JetBlue do not have an Interline Baggage agreement. You will need to take your bags with you on the AirTrain to Terminal 5 and re-check them with JetBlue. It will be difficult to make your connection. You will have to hope your Swiss flight is on-time and lines at immigration are short.
