  • lost luggage
    Feb 19, 2013
    I lost my luggage somewhere in between security check and gate A10 (flying west jet from Toronto to New York LGA). It is a purple carryon suitcase. I have a ton of personal belongings in it that are truly only valuable to me. I would be soooo grateful if anyone finds it and calls me. 646-717-2721 or can email me at


    YYZ's Lost & found rules: 1. If you lost an item at the airline counter, at the gates, or onboard your airplane; or if your bag is lost or damaged - contact your airline. 2. If you lost an item either inside the terminal, on a GTAA contracted bus, on the LINK train or in a LINK station, complete & submit the lost and found form found at:


  • Flight from Melbourne to Vancouver
    Feb 16, 2013
    Hi there, I have a flight from Melbourne to YVR (vancouver) and we stop in LAX. Will we get to pick up our luggage at LAX? I'm looking to book a sooner light home from LAX to YVR and want my luggage so i can hop on the sooner flight (dont want to pay the cancellation fee from the first flight, so ive added one from LAX to YVR)


    International arrivals at the US need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance and, if connecting to another terminal, exit incoming terminal and take shuttle bus to departing terminal, where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. Your arrival and departure depends on which airline you use. I suggest you open then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text. On your return flight, from YVR, use US customs clearance there before boarding.


  • Overhead music.
    Feb 10, 2013
    Why is there overhead music? Not only is the choice of music awful, the volume is loud. Many of us prefer quiet, to read, or check our e-mail. 'Please silence the overhead 'music!' When virtually everyone can plug into their ipod, MP3 player, of cell phone, this noise pollution is a big irritant!


    I suggest you contact Monroe Airport directly:

  • Connection and baggage Transfer
    Feb 4, 2013
    We will be flying United into O'hare from Buffalo in May. We land at 8:00am and our connecting United flight leaves at 8:45am. Having never flown into O'hare, is 45 minutes enough time to make our connecting flight as well as have our bags make it onboard the connecting flight?


    that's a very tight connection. It's doable though if your first flight is on time. 45 mins is about the bare minimum I would recommend trying.


    We do have another option with Southwest but much later in the day at MDW instead. Again it would be 45min to catch our connecting SW flight. Do you think this would be a better option due to the time restraints? Thank you for your input!


    They're about the same - a 45 minute connection isn't automatic at either airport and the Southwest operation at MDW is about the same size as the United one at ORD.


  • baggage transfers
    Feb 3, 2013
    Dear I have non shengen visa Im going to praiya Cabe verde via cdg airport from ULN. But ULN airport cant take my baggage to final distanation. When i pick up and recheck my baggage in CDG airport non shengen visa, Have a problem ? Baggage in claim located in tranzit hall ? dont need to go out immagration?


    At CDG you need to you through passport check, then follow signs to "Exit - Baggage" to collect your bags, which you then need to check in with your connecting airline at their counter. Most likely will arrive at one of the seven terminal 2 satellites, depending which airline you use. At present, some airlines are being relocated. It is best for you to open then click on he terminal s in both 'You are landing at' and 'Your connecting flight is at'. It then will show below how to connect.


  • Lost royal blue half sized carryon lugga
    Jan 31, 2013
    I lost a royal blue half sized carryon piece of luggage. On 1/29/13 we arrived at the airport at around 6:30 A.M. for our 8:15 Delta flight. I needed to have a wheelchair to help me get to the gate since I have spine and leg pains. After I got into the wheelchair from Delta, we began moving to the departure gate. I noticed that the smaller of the royal blue Delsey bags was not with me or my husband. We had checked two bags and then were carrying smaller items in a backpack and black Vera Bradley bag. I don't know if it made it to the baggage drop off or if someone else picked it up. Could you look at security video to see the drop off by the cab. I do not recall the cab company's name or the cabbie's number . I did not think to ask since this is my eight taxi ride in 69 years. Pleae let me know if you can check around for the smaller Delsey bag (half the size of a regular carryon) or if you can scan the video for a medium gray caracoal shirt, light colored , a baseball cap,while I had on black long sweater, black tights, and black and white blouse. The driver was a taller man from New Jersey. Please look through the video on 1/29/2013 for the cab company's name. There were not many people outside when we were there at 6:30, /A navy blue and mint green jacket is the top of the stuff in the bag.


    This is not the airport's website - nobody from the airport will read this. You need to contact them.


  • Baggage overnight
    Jan 30, 2013
    If I overnight somewhere mid-way, say Seattle or Minneapolis, and then pick up my flight in the morning,can my luggage stay at the airport?


    If your luggage is checked all the way though, then yes, it will sit in the bag room all night. If not you'll have to take it with you wherever you spend the night.

  • Undelivered bagagge

    My bag did not arrived from Nicaragua. I was promised to have it delivered with the next flight from Altanta (has not been forwarded to the final destination), arriving at 7:30 p,m, It's 11:55 p.m. and my bag has not been delivered at the hotel. I have only a courtesy hygiene pouch given by Delta. My winter jacket (23 degrees outside) and all my clothes are in my bag and I have a parent meeting on Sunday. What amount could I spend in clothes that will be reimbursed. Thank you.


  • re check baggage
    Jan 23, 2013
    I am flying from australia to LA but change flights in San Francisco, will my baggage be checked straight through to LA my final destination seeing as it is the same airline just different flight or do i have to claim and re check it, i did not know if i had to have my baggage with me to go through customs and immigration. Also i land in terminal 1 and have 2 hours to get to terminal 3 which is fine but not so fine if i have to re claim and re check my baggage.


    As an international arrival at SFO (San Francisco Airport) you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag: Onward passengers will exit Arrivals Hall through dedicated doors indicating 'Connecting Flights', where they will re-check in bags at the baggage desk directly outside of the exit. To connect to any of the domestic terminals, take the AirTrain's red line at either station A or G below the Main Hall. To get to Terminal 3, you can also use the short connector between Boarding Area G and Terminal 3 and its F gates. NOTE: Your bags will be transferred (same airline, or between members of the same airline alliance). You have enough time.


  • Can I have baggage unloaded at curb
    Feb 6, 2013
    I had back surgery recently and am not supposed to lift anything over 10 lbs. Can I park at the curb & have my luggage unloaded & then go park my car?


    It is best to contact your Airport.


    Get information from the airport authority, or ask your friends if they know about these thing


  • How do I get baggage chg $25 refund
    Mar 11, 2013
    On Jan 17th scheduled to fly to Pa. on 3971 at ll:20. Pd 25 baggage fee, but did not make plane as forgot drivers license. Wil forfeit $633 fare with Orbitz but how about 25.00 refund for luggage.


    you need to contact the refunds department of your airline. Also, if you would have contacted orbitz or your airline the day of your flight you could have received a credit on the airline for the cost of your ticket minus a $150 change fee.


    Well veI heard this several time from various commuters, All I can say is good luck with that matter. It can be refunded ,but you must continue talking to the upper mgmt. to get any real answers.


  • Items stolen from checked bags
    Jan 18, 2013
    Flew MCI to DFW yesterday, and had some items stolen from my checked bags. Probably happened at the KC end, as the bags (surprisingly) came of VERY quickly at DFW. Anyone know how to report this to the authorities?


    Checked baggage is the domain of airlines. Open your airline site and look for "Baggage / Luggage" section to find details.
