  • Baggage Policy UNITED
    Feb 18, 2017
    1
    The info in iFly regards baggage charge in UNITED for international travel has changed. I have flown with UNITED for long time and when traveling to Mexico first checked in baggage was free as this site informs. Now, they will charge 25 dollars for the first checked in baggage to Canada, Mexico and Central America! Unbelievable and so unfair! Thanks for reading!

     

    They have done this since 2008.

    I'm flying from Saskatoon to Calgary and then to Tokyo, Japan with a 1:30h layover in San Francisco. Will I have enough time to make my connecting flight to Tokyo? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you.

     

  • Will I have enough time to clear customs and get to FLL?

    Flying in from Merida to MIA, then flying out of FLL. If I have two hours, maybe a bit more, between flights, will that be enough time to clear customs and get over to FLL?

     

    No, that's probably not enough time, especially if you have bags to claim in Miami and re-check in Fort Lauderdale.

    Where are you flying into JFK from? Do you have checked bags? Is your caps lock key broken?

    I fly from PVG CHINA to Tampa Florida, bout fly with AA, connecting time in DWF is 1 hour and 45 min.IS it necessary to take my luggage or the transfer is automatic ? or is it better if I have just my personal luggage?

     

    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and then take the Skylink train to your departure gate. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly. Obviously, only bringing carry-ons does make it easier.

    I am flying with AA from Tampa to Shanghai China , and have 40 min for connection in DFW. Will I make it?

     

    Yes, that's possible but it leaves no time to spare. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security.

     

  • customs on international flight when connecting on to another county

    I am flying seattle to tokyo with a 110 min layover and connecting on to a flight to kuala lumpur. The first is a delta flight then ANA airlines on to KL. Do I go through customs in Tokyo if I am not leaving the airport? Or to I go through customs when I reach Kuala Lumpur?

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation, you won't go through Japanese immigration or customs in Tokyo. All you do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You go through Malaysian immigration and customs in Kuala Lumpur. If it's two separate reservations then you will have to go through passport control to claim and transfer your bags.

    I will be traveling from SFO to JFK on American. I arrive at 4 pm. My flight on American to Rome leaves at 5:30 pm. Can I make it? I am also assuming by arrival time will be sooner than the scheduled arrival time.

     

    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I`m flying to Rome Italy from MONTREAL YUL, we have a connecting flight in Philly that will take us directly to Rome. First question is where do I do customs ? and Second will my luggage follow or will I have to recheck them?

     

    In Montreal you will go directly to US Immigration and Customs Preclearance. Your luggage will be waiting there for you.

     

    My luggage will have to be picked up in philly or in Rome?

  • Connection in DFW from PARIS to MEX

    Hi! I'm flying from Paris CDG to MTY, Mex and my layover in DFW is of 1.5 hours. Will I have to pick up my luggage and drop it off again? Is it enough time for immigration!? I'm freaking out.. .

     

    You will not have to claim and re-check your bags because you are on an international to international connection on AA through DFW. However, you have to go through Immigration, customs, and security. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

    THANK YOU, fingers crossed for everything to go smoothly then.!
