  • 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.


  • from JFK to EWR immigration - luggage recheck
    Dec 25, 2016
    I arrival to JFK airport at 13:30 from MXP (Italy) and I have to depart from EWR airport at 18:00. I'll pick up my luggage at JFK after immigration. I ask: Do I have to redo the normal check at EWR? Is there in EWR a sort of recheck?


    You will have to check your bags at the normal check-in counter in Newark.

  • 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.


  • Connecting Flight
    Dec 13, 2016
    Hey, I am arriving at JFK by JetBlue airlines at 12:06 pm from Buffalo ( Terminal 5) and I have a connecting flight(Air India) to New Delhi at 2:25 pm from terminal 4. Both the flights are on the same reservation. Would I have to check in my baggage again and would be there be enough time to get through security ?


    Yes, if you purchased two separate reservations you will have to claim your bags in Terminal 5, take them to Terminal 4, re-check them and go through security. It will be very difficult to do that in the time you have, but it's not impossible.

  • Will my luggage be checked in from Calgary to LA onto Melbourne flying
    Dec 12, 2016
    I would like to know if our luggage is checked in all the way from Calgary to LA and then on to Melbourne Australia flying Qantas or do we have to claim our luggage from LA and recheck them before flying out to Melbourne?


    What airline are you flying from Calgary to LA? Are both flights on the same reservation or are they two separate reservations?


    We booked only with Qantas but Qantas use westjet to fly Calgary to L.A


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. Your bags will be transferred for you. All you have to do on your way to Sydney is walk from your arrival terminal (T2) to the International Terminal, get your Qantas boarding passes if Westjet can't issue them, and then go through security.
