  • Baggage claim

    I have booked AA from vancouver to Chicago and transit stop is at dallas where i will have to change my flight but airline is the same. I want to know that am I suppose to claim my baggage at Dalllas airport? I have 2 hours 45 min. I will have to cross the immigration as well in Dallas?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration in Vancouver. You only have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Dallas. The Skylink train connects all Terminals inside security. You have plenty of time.

    I will be flying from St Maarten to JFK then connecting to my domestic flight. I know I will have to clear customs, but what happens with my checked bag? Do I have to claim it before customs then recheck it for my domestic flight or is it automatically transferred? Thanks!

     

    Yes, you will have to claim it to go through customs, then if you purchased your tickets together and it is tagged to your final destination, you can re-check it at the transfer desk.

    Yes, you will have to claim your luggage and take it with you to Newark. No airline does inter-airport connection of luggage.

    Hello, I am flying into JFK terminal 4 from South Africa (SAA) and catching a connecting flight to Panama (COPA) also from terminal 4, will I have to clear customs and recheck my baggage, Thanks Al

     

    Yes, you will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your baggage, get your COPA boarding pass if you don't already have it, and go through Security and to your departure gate. You may need a US Transit visa or to complete ESTA, depending on your country of citizenship.

    My parents are flying from India to Raleigh via British Airways with connection flight to London to PHA and PHA to RDU via US Airways. Do they need to claim the baggage and recheck them after customs at PHA? If so, do they recheck at the US airways Counter or will there be a quick re-check desk past the customs?

     

    You will claim your baggage after going through US Immigration in Philadelphia, Then you will go through US Customs, then there will be a US Airways/American Airlines re-check desk. Then you will go up to the departure level, through security, and to your departure gate.

     

  • Boarding pass

    Flying Delta MSP/AMS/BRU I was able to print the MSP/AMS boarding pass but not the one for the AMS/BRU flight. Where do I get that boarding pass?

     

    First, check your boarding pass, Delta prints all boarding passes on one sheet of paper. Secondly, if you really don't have your AMS-BRU boarding pass you can get it at the transfer desk in Amsterdam.

     

  • Do you have to collect your baggage?

    Hi, I am arriving in Miami International Airport from Dallas (originally from South Korea) at 10:36 pm on Dec. 3, 2014 and leaving for Grand Cayman the next morning at 11:20 am. I am going to stay at a hotel inside the airport. Do I need to collect my baggage and go through immigration, customs and everything at Miami arirport? Please let me know. Thank you!

     

    All international arrivals in the U.S. will need to go through the immigration process - in your case it will be at Dallas AP. If you bought your flights on one ticket your bags will automatically be transferred, if not, check with your airline.

     

  • Can we lock checki n bags

    Pls let me know if i can lock the checked in baggages (international flight from Chicago OHARE) after the security xray screening near the counter before they send it via conveyor to the flight (to avoid theft of items at different airports while in transit).

     

    I would ask the airline or a TSA rep.

     

    You can always lock your baggage, however, if your locks do not have TSA keyholes they will cut your locks if they need to open your bags for inspection.

    Flying from Sav to ATL DL844. and ATL-MBJ DL317. Do we have to do anything with our bags once we get to atlanta? I have seen different answers on here regarding re checking bags during a layover.

     

    No you do not have to do anything with your bags on the way to Jamaica. Just take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse .

    I am arriving on 02/03/2015 at JFK via flight AF 22 at 11:15 and departing to MSY via flight AF9272 at 14:00. Do i collect my bags at JFK to the next flight or I collect them at MSY?

     

    You will arrive in terminal 1, go through immigration, claim your bags, go through us customs , re-check your bags, then take the AirTrain from T1 to T2, go through security and to your departure gate. Your flight to New Orleans is operated by Delta.

     

    Thank You

    No you only have to go from your arrival gate to your departure concourse via the plane train.
