Wondering how many hours in advance I could check my baggage in the same day as my flight. I'll be taking a flight in the early evening but would love to drop my suitcase off 6 hours before my flight is this possible? Flying sun country out of dallas fortworth. Thx
The Sun Country desk probably only opens a few hours before their flight since they only have a few flights a day to DFW.
Hi, I am flying from YXE to YVR then to LAZ to BNE. Will I be required to get my luggage in YVR for US customs or will it go directly from YXE to BNE. I am flying Westjet from YXE until LAX then Qantas from LAX to BNE.
Yes, you will have to claim your bags in Vancouver to bring them through US Customs preclearance.
My wife is flying to her hometown does she needs to pay for her baggage? I am active duty military.
Free baggage is almost always reserved for "Active Duty Military traveling on orders" thus your wife wouldn't qualify.
is there any way of visiting the lost baggage department at Abu Dhabi international airport. my suitcase was lost while transiting through Abu Dhabi but the airline say that they can only achieve 68% accuracy on my description so they will not call a hit forward unless it achieves 80% or more. i am only a few hours drive from the airport and want to check personally saving any flight recovery. does anyone have any advice on how to do this.
Flying KLM from Bristol to San Francisco via Schiphol, if I check-in my hold luggage at Bristol will it be transferred to the San Francisco flight automatically, or will I have to collect my luggage and Check-in again?
You won't have to claim your bags in Amsterdam.

You need to contact your airline.
Can I check my luggage on United flight from IAh straight through on my Qantas flight tobAustralia
If you purchased two separate reservations, no you cannot.
My fly: Sun 17.Sept. 2017 HAM 10:35 BA 0965, from LHR 12:40 BA 0067, PHL 18:05 AA 4916 to ILM. Have I collect my baggages and must pass the CBP?
Which gate I am arrive and which gate I depart? How many time I need to change the gates?
In Philadelphia, you will You will arrive in Terminal A, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate, likely in Terminal F. You need at least 90 minutes, with 2 hours preferable.
Thank you, it will be very helpful! Can I take a bus or what else from gate A to gate F?
You can take a shuttle bus inside security or walk.
I know there is fish box storage at ANC. My flt leaves at 5am. Can I check my baggage the night before at the fish box place and not have to deal with it in the morning?
In the morning you will have to physically move the boxes from cold storage to your airline's check-in desk yourself.
We are flying Korean Air from Seoul to ORD next March 2018. And then. transferring to Jet Blue , ORD to BOS. We made the trip in March of'17 also.

In March of '17, flying KE from Seoul to ORD, and then connecting to Jet Blue to Boston, we were told by airport personnel outside customs, to deposit our bags at American for re-check, as they handle the bags for Jet Blue. This was not correct, and we lost our bags for 5 days . Thankfully someone at Jet Blue put in some effort where others had not for days, and we got everything.

Any idea where recheck is for JetBue bags after clearing customs at ORD?
You have to take the bags to their check-in counter in Terminal 3. JetBlue doesn't get many international connections at ORD so they aren't set up with any facilities to accept bags in T5 as many days would go by with them accepting zero inbound bags.
Thanks so much. Well that sucks. There will be three of us with 6 checked bags/boxes plus carry-ons. Any ideas on how to get there with all that luggage? I'm assuming carts can't go between terminals? Or can they?
Pack a foldable cart in your checked bags is the only option I think. Also, since you have 3 people, if you have time, you can send two people ahead with what they can carry, and leave one person behind with the rest, then one person stays with the bags they carried to T3 and the other goes back to T5 and the remaining 2 people bring the rest of the stuff from T5 to T3.
Thanks ZAP. Luckily we will have a big strong 17 year old with us who lives in the gym. :)
I guess that's what we'll do.
I appreciate what you do for us here!
