  • Connecting flight
    Dec 10, 2016
    I fly from Manchester to Atalanta to then get a connecting flight to grand Cayman. Do I have to collet the my bags and go and check them in again. If so how long will it take?


    Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.

    How much time do I need to connect from a Fiji Airlines flight to a United Flight at LAX


    I recommend at least 3 hours.


  • Luggage transfer

  • First time transit
    Nov 30, 2016
    Hi, this is my first time visiting Canada. I'll be flying in from Hong Kong to Toronto and then transiting here to Saint John, NB at the end of January. I will have close to 4 hours before my flight to Saint John but I'm confused about the procedures. When I get off the plane, do I need to go through customs and border control? Do I need to pick up my luggage and then recheck in my luggage?


    Yes, you will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs. They will tell you whether or not you have to claim your bags, I believe you will. Canada is in a weird state right now where people coming from some countries have to claim their bags to go through customs and some countries don't.

    I will be travelling from FCO airport to AMS by Alitalia & have connecting flight (KLM). Do I have to re-check my baggage?


    If both flights are on the same reservation then you don't have to claim and re-check your baggage.


  • Possible to check in luggage to layover rather than final destination
    Nov 28, 2016
    I have a flight booked from Mexico City to Madrid with layovers in Toronto and Germany. I´ve decided to just stay in Toronto and ditch the two connecting flights. Is is possible to check luggage just to Toronto and now the final destination? Thanks


    You'll have to ask the airline, my guess would be no.


  • Re-check my luggage
    Nov 27, 2016
    Hello I will be traveling from Paris to the USA with a correspondence though Detroit airport. I will be travelling alone with two big luggages. Is there any chance that I get some help to transport them to the re-check stand? Thank you in advance for your answer


    No, there are no people to help you - there will be carts that you can use.


  • Connecting flight can I check bags?
    Nov 27, 2016
    Will be in SFO airport which is a international connecting flight. Can I check bags even if it's a connecting flight (to Tokyo)? Or should I call ahead to make sure I can check bags.


    What airline are you flying? Where are you flying into SFO from?


    Ana (all nippo airlines) and it's from PDX to SFO. SFO is the connecting flight to Tokyo. I think I can check in luggage since it's a different plane?


    You will check your bags with United in Portland and all you have to do in SFO is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Flight from Barcelona
    Nov 27, 2016
    I will be departing Barcelona flying thru Philadelphia to Fort Myers. Where will I be going through customs and is 2 hrs connecting time enough. This will be a May trip.


    In Philadelphia you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Luggage Transfer at CDG PARIS
    Nov 24, 2016
    Are we able to check baggage from Budapest through CDG on Air France all the way to Dallas, on our American flight from CDG to Dallas about 2.5 hours of layover??


    Are the tickets on one reservation or two separate reservations? If it's two separate reservations then no, you won't be able to check your bags through.


  • Claim checked baggage?
    Nov 21, 2016
    I am flying from Grand Rapids MI through Atlanta to Cancun. Will I have to claim any checked luggage or will it be checked through for the whole flight? All flights are on the same ticket.


    No, you will not have to claim your bags in Atlanta on your way TO Cancun.


  • Claim bags.
    Nov 17, 2016
    My return flight from Tokyo to Toronto goes thru Chicago. If I decide to spend the night in Chicago, will I be able to claim my checked in bags when I arrive in Chicago.


  • Terminal E to Terminal c at Logan airport
    Nov 15, 2016
    Hello, I am arriving att Terminal E at Logan on emirates and need to connect Jet Blue in Terminal C. Are the terminals connected? How long is the walk.


    Yes, the terminals are connected, but once you clear US Customs you'll be outside security anyway, so you'll have to go through security to get to your departure gate. I suggest walking outside to Terminal 3 and going through security there.


  • Washington IAD
    Nov 14, 2016
    I'm flying from Charleston to Washington IAD & have 1 hour 15 minutes, (I'm assuming I don't have to recheck luggage ?) Is it enough time to make connecting flight to London ? both on United Airline. Thank you.


    You don't have to re-check your bags. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • atlanta to paris
    Nov 14, 2016
    I will arrive Friday evening from Altanta Airport to Paris at 715pm, Flight leaves at 850pm. Flying with Air France and will have to check in a bag, Will I have enough time to check in bags, security etc. on a Friday evening. Have not left Atlanta Airport on Friday evening and was not sure about wait times during this time. Thanks


    That should be enough time. Most of the other flights have left the International Terminal by then.
