    We are travelling from Canada thru Newark to Punta Cana .. we have 2 hours lay over .. hoping is long enough .. we do change terminals from A to C .... do we pick up our luggage and bring with us ??? and whats the best and fastest for us too go Shuttle or Air train???

     

    btw we are travelling with United Airlines

     

    and travelling from MONCTON N.B. thru NEWARK to PUNTA CANA

     

    As Greater Moncton Airport does not have U.S. customs clearance, you will need, on arrival at EWR (Newark Airport), go through passport check, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance and re-check-in your bag. Thereafter take the Airtrain to Terminal C, where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate. 2 hrs transfer time will suffice.

     

    thanks so much for the info

     

    The flights from Moncton arrive in Terminal C in order to go through immigration, so you will not have to take the Airtrain.

    My delayed baggage has been sitting at American Airlines baggage claim since yesterday at noon. It's supposed to be with Delta. Delta says American needs to bring it over, American says Delta needs to come get it. You can't get either airline to make a call and say, "Got get the woman's baggage" and apparently there's some power issue about caving and solving the problem. SO NOT PLEASED, no means to contact anyone directly. Anyone have a phone number? Suggestion?

     

    Hey you actually got someone to pick up the phone? I've been calling and calling. Ringing as we speak...

     

    Well, at their delayed baggage office, which is in some other state and basically pointless after the initial "where is my bag?" Conversation. Good luck.

     

  • Do I need to recheck-in baggage

    I am travelling Mumbai- Newark-SFO by united airlines. On reaching Newark do i have to clear immigration or it would be done at SFO. What about luggage, will it be transferred by airline directly from Mumbai to SFO. Or i have to take it out at Newark and clear customs and recheck-in again. My both flights are United and Terminal at Newark is C

     

    You will go through immigration and claim your baggage in immigration, then re-check it with United when you exit customs all in Newark.

    What do most travelers do put the cell phone in the carry on bag and send it through or lay it in the tray and pick it up on the other end? I don't like taking my off my phone?

     

    You putthe cell phone in the bin with your other belongings.

     

    You can also put it in your bag, I put it in my bag when I get to the airport. That way I can't forget it at security unless I forgot my whole bag.

     

    Mine never leaves my purse. It goes through screening in my purse and comes out the other side. I've done this at small regional airports (where security is high) to hubs like ATL and LAX.

    Where should I put my pill containers RX's in my purse or carryon?

     

    Just put it in the bin with cell phone, shoes, etc.

     

    You can put them anywhere you normally carry them. There's nowhere special they have to go.

     

    Purse or carry on bag, either one. Only declare to TSA if it's a liquid RX over the size limits.

  • JFK transfer QatarAirways to AA

    Im arrving 3pm with Int flight QatarAir and continue with American Airlines to LAX 5pm. Both airlines are T8 (what I understand), will my luggage go automatically to LAX or will I have to clear and recheckin in JFK? if so is 2h enough time?

     

    You will clear immigration and then re-check your bags at re-check if they were tagged through to LAX. If they aren't tagged through to LAX you'll have to take them upstairs to AA and check them. Then you go through security and to your gate. 2 hrs should be enough time.

  • Where to check in baggage for Condor air

    I'm departing from SEA-TAC South satellite on Condor Flugdienst (Seattle to Frankfurt). Is baggage checked in at main terminal or in South?

     

    At SEA you check in your bags at the Main Terminal, then take the South Train Loop stopping at B & S gates. (therefore, add an extra 10-15 mins to your boarding schedule. Signs will direct you to the train.

     

    nice information.

     

  • will my baggage be checked through?

    I am travelling from portland , Maine to Detroit dtw and then on to Seoul, Korea icn. I was wondering if my bag will be checked all the way through or if I have to claim it in Detroit and re-check?

     

    The airline is delta all the way if that helps***

     

    On the way TO Korea it will be checked straight through in Portland and you won't have to touch it until you get to Seoul. On the way back, you have to claim it in US immigration when you first enter the country and then recheck.

     

    Thank you ZAP!

    flying into LAS on United, where do i pick up my luggage and where can my party meet me? thanks

     

    You will arrive at Satellite D of LAS via United and need to take the D tram to Terminal 3 (follow signs) where you will claim your bags. Meet your friend at the domestic baggage carousels 1 to 10.

    I am flying into PHL from Detroit on flightUS Airways 3226 and connecting to flight US Airways to Amsterdam and Sofia.How to get from terminal C to Terminal A ? Need to pick up my bags and recheck in,before moving to my connecting gate to AMS

     

    At PHL, all terminals, except TF, are connected at post-security areas by moving walkways. Follow signs on arrival at TC to TA-West, which has gates A14-26. Your bags are being automatically transferred.

     

  • Is your luggage safe ? Drug Use

    I work at south west. I want to report this guy who is high at my job on Marajauna every day. We have a no drug policy at South West.. He is throwing luggage around and driving like a nut. On March 5th, he crashed into the side of a cargo plane. He is 21 and he is so ghetto. I caught him and his brother getting high in the airport. I am ready to quit. I wouldn't trust my luggage to South West.

     

    Report him to HR and/or the police.

     

    Yes zap is right , report to the HR.

     

    Do us all a favor and report him. He not only causes damage to equipment and luggage, he could endanger others around him. If he is so blatant, it won't take much for him to get busted.
