    I am arriving on allegiant airlines ....gate c....I have to pick up bags at baggage claim and connect on South west how do I do this


    You just follow signs to the baggage claim upon arrival - the Allegiant baggage claim is in Terminal 1 where you will arrive. Then take the escalator up to the esplanade, walk across the departure road (the esplanade has a bridge over the road), and then take the escalator down to the ticketing level and re-check your bags with Southwest.


  • Flight to Tokyo through Toronto
    Nov 22, 2015
    Two Questions.... Flying on Air Canada from ORD to Okinawa with layovers in Toronto (2-/12 hr) and Tokyo (3 hours). Will I have to do anything upon entering Canada or just go to my connecting gate for the Toronto to Tokyo portion of the trip? Second question. Flying out at 8:30 on Friday (11/27), checking 2 bags; will arriving 90 minutes early allow sufficient time? Wasn't sure if I needed more time over the holiday weekend. Thanks.


    You will have to go through Canadian Immigration in Toronto. 90 minutes should be enough time to check in, but if you can get there a little earlier it wouldn't hurt. Usually the day after Thanksgiving isn't too busy.

  • JFK connections
    Nov 3, 2015
    Flying from LHR to JFK with Virgin Atlantic and then i have a 8 hour layover to fly to St Thomas with Delta Airlines. Will I have to change terminals and collect my baggage and check back in ?


    In JFK you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk (if they are tagged through to STT), then go through security and to your departure gate, which will also be in Terminal 4.


  • Transit FRA - IAH - MGA
    Oct 27, 2015
    Hello, We will arrive to HOUSTON from FRANKFURT (Lufthansa) and we have our plane 1hours and 45mn after to MANAGUA, is that enough time to connect?? It is the only flight and we have a little baby so I can't miss my flight! Thanx


    That should be just enough time as long as your flight from Frankfurt is on-time.


  • Layover is only 45 minutes
    Oct 25, 2015
    We will be leaving BWI with a layover in ATL for 45 minutes before our connecting flight to Aruba. We have never been to Altanta and want to know if we will have enough time to get our next flight out.


    That is enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.


  • Disability

    I have disability does it cost to get wheelchair to gate and from gate once you get to detonation and also if they want to change your seat on plane for better convenience ?


    Wheelchair service is free. Just notify your airline that you need it by calling them. They will also make sure you have a suitable seat.


    Also, however, you should tip the wheelchair person $5-$20 depending on how much time they spend with you.

  • the layover limited
    Oct 23, 2015
    can i stay in the airport over 12 hours during the layover period?


    Depends on the airport. Depends whether the 12 hours are overnight or not


    What about Dallas airport (DFW) Starting from 01:00 to 19:00 It's not overnight Can I ThAnk you


    That's 18 hours and is overnight. You will have to stay in the baggage claim/check in area until 4 or 5 AM


    What time does SWA curb side check in open in the morning


    Southwest does not fly to DFW. They fly to DAL. Their check in probably opens around 4:30-5 AM.


  • Flight to maldives
    Dec 20, 2014
    Can you tell me, how can i go to maldive by using RBA flight?


    What is "RBA flight" RBA is Rabat, Morocco. Do you mean Royal Brunei Airlines? Royal Brunei Airlines does not fly to the Maldives. No airlines fly nonstop from Brunei to the Maldives. Malaysia Airlines flies from Kuala Lumpur to the Maldives. The airport code for Male, the capital of the Maldives is MLE. You could also get from Brunei to Male connecting in Singapore.


  • what terminal will I arrive and number.
    Dec 1, 2014
    I am traveling from Phoenix sky harbor to dallas forth worth with usa airways , but I don't know what gate will arise I want to know because my bf will be picking me up


    Your boyfriend can't go to your arrival gate anyway. You will know your arrival terminal and gate the day of your flight. Tell your boyfriend to look online or with his phone when he goes to pick you up.


  • Airport change and baggage problem
    Nov 7, 2014
    Hi there ! I have a flight from Toronto to Newyork and then a layover change of airport flight from Newark to Mumbai (India). 1. My Newyork flight lands at 10am and have my 2nd flight from Newark at 4.25pm. ( have a 6.5 hours gap betwwen my next flight from Newark). What is the best and cheapest way to get to Newark airport from Newyork airport since it takes 2 hours to reach Newark airport. I don't want to spend much money since I am a student. 2. I will have to collect my baggage from Newyork airport and re-check in at Newark airport. I have a US visa, can I board my flight from Newark since my tickets are already booked for 2nd of December and non refundable. I am very confused and upset on how to tackle this situation. Please suggest the best and cheapest way and to be on time for my flight. Would appreciate a quick reply from you. Thank you.


    New York has 2 airports in addition to Newark. Are you arriving at LGA or JFK? The route to Newark is different depending on what airport you are arriving at. Why don't you think you can board your flight from Newark if you have a US Visa? You should have plenty of time to get between airports. Even using public transit the trip between airports should be less than 3 hours.


    I am arriving at JFK airport in New York. Sounds perfect. But what is the cheapest way to get to Newark liberty international airport? If Air train is a good option. How do I take the air train once I arrive? I also need to collect my baggage once I arrive Newyork JFK.


    Yes, both of those airports are connected to the train system. TO take the train, you take the JFK AirTrain to the Jamaica/Sutphin station and transfer to the Long Island Railroad to Penn Station, then at Penn Station, transfer to the New Jersey Transit Northeast Corridor Train towards Trenton. You will exit at the Newark Airport station and take the EWR Airtrain to your departure terminal.


    Oh ok. And how much do I pay for my whole Air train trip to Newark Airport from Newyork JFK Airport? Where do I need to go to enquire about the air train in New York JFK airport once I arrive? Sorry, I am a little confused since will be doing change of airports for the first time and don't want to get lost and waste time


  • T5 to T3 connections
    Nov 2, 2014
    I am flying in from Spain on Iberian arriving at T5 with just under two hours for a connection on Envoy to YYZ. What do I have to do re baggage and getting to T3 Thank You.


    Upon arrival at T5 you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and then re-check your bags at the transfer desk. Then you will go up two levels to the ATS train and take it one stop to T3 and go through security.


  • Do I have to take luggage out in Dallas for a 10 hour layover?
    Nov 2, 2014
    I will fly from Calgary, Canada to Miami, Florida, has a 10 hours layover in Dallas, will my luggage be sent from Calgary to Miami directly? Just wonder if I have to drag my luggage around until the next morning for a 5 am connecting flight? Is there a high chance of my luggage of being lost if it sits in the airport for 10 hours to the next connecting flight? Thanks
