  • Rental

    I am coming home for R&R and I need to rent a car for 2 weeks how early do I need to reserve it? Also what do I need to do as far as renting it?


    I presume you are coming home from military duty - in which case I wish you the greatest of time while being on R&R. As to rental cars: You did not mention the airport you arrive at - each airport has different rental agencies and while most of them have rental car counters in the arrivals area, some large airports have them in a separate building. It is always good to reserve in advance, particularly in summer time. My suggestion is you open then enter your airport name; therefter click on "Flights & Hotels" in the top menu, and select 'Rental Cars'. Good luck to you - have a great time.


  • connecting time
    Jun 21, 2012
    My flight from Los Angeles (LAX) flight 653 arriving in Washington (IAD) 21:12 Departure to Frankfurt (FRA) 22:01 Flight: 932 is enough time for connecting flight in Washington? I'm sorry for my english thanks


    1. Make sure your at LAX that your airline will transfer bags at IAD to your connecting terminal/gate - not all airlines do, in which case you would have to carry it to the connecting terminal and check it in there. 2. As you only quote flight number and not airline, I cannot tell you to which terminal you will have to transfer to. I suggest you open, then click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, scroll down beyond the map to find terminals, gates and how to get around.


    The airline is UNITED, but I do not know what are the gates


  • Transfer from one Flight # to another
    Jun 20, 2012
    when you transfer from one Ft# to another (same airline) do you stay in the same terminal?


    That depends on which Airport you arrive & depart from. Some Airport's airlines use more than one terminal for different destination or for domestic or international flights, or they depart from the same terminal but from different Concourses - all of which might involve taking a shuttle bus or train. What is the name of your Airport(s)?


  • Transit in JFK
    Jun 18, 2012
    The family and I (2 children under 8) will be transiting from terminal 7 to terminal 4 in JFK. Will we need to go through security in terminal 4 before entering departure area?


    At JFK, the AirTrain runs on average every 8 mins and is free between all terminals; however it departs/arrives in pre-security areas. Yes you need to go through security check again - children do not have to take off their shoes).


  • Pick passengers at Lambert Int'l, StL
    Jun 14, 2012
    Can I wait for our arriving passengers inside baggage carousel area, Terminal 1, Lambert Int'l., St. Louis? Thank You in advanced.


    At STL, it may be a good idea to ask your party which airline & flight number they arrive at and be at the carousel serving that airline (see overhead screens) - or arrange to meet at nearby information counter. However, there is another option - use the free Cell Phone Lots (one is a mile west of Terminal 1, half a mile east of Cypress Rd, on Lambert International Blvd., the other is only a third of a mile east of Terminal 2 on the north side of the Air Cargo Road) featuring airline flight display boards. Stay with your car until our party has collected luggage and calls you to be picked up at the terminal's curb.


  • connection flights

    I have a travel from PR to Lexington. I switch with another airline in Orlando (AA to United). I take only a hand bag so i don't need go to baggage area. In this case, I need go outside(to the counter or check point) again to ask my tickets to my another flight?


    If you have one ticket for both AA & UA flights (stating separately arrival and departure times and gates) you need not go to the United Airline counter to get your boarding pass. Otherwise, you need to go down to the departures level's airline counter, get your ticket & boarding pass and go through security before connecting to your next flight.


  • enough time
    Jun 12, 2012
    Is 35 min enough time for connecting flight at ord in terminal 3


    At ORD - Terminal 3 has Concourses G, H, K & L with corresponding gates (i.e., gate G21). On arrival, look at overhead screen for your connecting gate number and time & follow signs.

  • enough time
    Jul 20, 2012
    I will get to SFO from CMH at 12.20 PM at terminal 1 (southwest airline) and will need to go to international terminal, which will depart at 2.10 PM. Will it be enough time to do check in, custom, etc?


    Why are you worried about customs departing SFO? You go through customs at your int'l arrival. As for terminal 1, you couldn't be any closer to Int'l. Exit Terminal 1 to the main concourse, go left and keep bearing left. The first terminal you get to is International departure. You only need to go through security again.


    To get from Terminal 1 of SFO to the International Terminal, you need to take the red line of the Airtrain - an automated people mover in the unsecured areas of the terminals (to boarding areas A or G). When arriving at the International Terminal, you need to go through security check again before proceeding to your gate. Customs clearance is only for international arrivals. You have sufficient time.


    how long does it take to go from terminal 1, get your bags and go to terminal 7 and check in

    Is there an age limit for a child to fly alone? Any special requirements to arrange a flight for a 10 yr old child?


    1. Open - at top choose "Travelers Tips", click on "Airport & Flying Resources" and on "Children flying alone". Or peruse your airline site.

    Do I need a medical form stating I have a pacemaker?


    Without medical form, alert the official at the security checkpoint.
