  • Can you fix the security wait times?
    Jun 25, 2015
    The security checkpoint wait times page is a wonderful idea. However in Atlanta, for example, waits of well over an hour are not so unusual. Having the highest category be "21+ minutes" is very unhelpful, and maybe misleading.

    I have heard there are floody situation going on in Texas & Dallas, i have a flight from dallas on saturday....what about weather conditions going on there ?


    Saturday is a long way off. The airport should be running at full capacity then unless there's another storm that is occurring at that time.

    My son is 16 and travelling alone to the USA, are we, his parents, able to stay with him until he boards the plane?


    Yes, you should be able to request a gate pass from the airline check-in counter.

    Hi I´m traveling to Las Vegas, I have 2 hrs, do I have to go through customs take my bags, check them again and go through security? do I have enough time? I will land in terminal e and have to walk to c, are they near? how long will it take me?


    Yes, that should be enough time. E and C are connected to each other.

    Gate C44 is in Terminal C, but double check the monitors when you get to the airport.

    No, not realistically.


  • Terminal Transfer
    Apr 15, 2015
    Hi - I'm flying from Vancouver to DFW with a 60 min gap, then DFW to Charles de Gaulle. Will I need to pick up my bags and go through security and then change terminals? Do I have enough time? I booked my flights together through expedia - it was unclear whether the system booked with enough time for the transfer or not


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Vancouver. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will depart from Terminal D. If you arrive in a different terminal the SkyLink train connects all Terminals inside security.


  • 2h 15 to change plane & rechecking bag on different tickets in Sydney
    Apr 15, 2015
    Hey, I've got a problem and would like to hear some experiences or tips, what i can do; My flight goes from chrichtchurch to sidney, ariving at 8:05 - i booked this flight with jetstar, when i wanted to fly in to nz. I just wanted to change the plane in sydney, to fly to asia, but wasn't sure where to go jet. Now i booked a nother flight over bali to ende from sydney with "Garuda Indonesia". It takes of at 10:25 - leaving 2:15 to change the plane - not a problem i thought, if you normally change the plane on a flight times like this are common. ...later i realized my stupidity: If you have a normal stop over, you don't have to care about your bag - but if you have 2 independently booked flights, i have to get my bagpack, and check it in for the other flight! - and to get to my bag, i have to migrate to the country, right? All in all: Looong waiting times. I've still got a working holiday visa for australia, so that's not a problem, but checkin normaly get's closed one houre before takoff, leaving me with one houre to run out of the plane, migrate to the country, get my bag, go through the food checks (in nz i had to unpack my tent - maybe they want me to do the same in au because of theire strickt polecys) and find the checking place - That's a keen plan! SO: Do you think this is possible? And better: Do you know if i could do anything to improve my situation? Can i maybe tell jetstar to directly check in my bag for the other flight? (Yeah, i know, i can't expect any service from jetstar, though, i would pay for it). Or can i tell Garuda Indonesia to grab my bag for me? Or do you think i could at least ask on checkin in christchurch that they should store my bag on top, so it's gone be one of the first at the baggage claim (imagine i have to wait there till my bag finally comes up...!) Changing flight dates isn't possible - i would have to rebook the flight. And before i do that, I'll at least try it! "Mission impossible"! ^^ I'm happy about every tipp / past experience =)


    I think it will be very difficult. agents have no control over how the bags are loaded or unloaded from the airplanes.

  • Will airport security walk you to your car?
    Apr 6, 2015
    I am a younger women traveling alone in the near future and leaving my car in the long term parking lot. My returning flight gets in late and I'm a little concern about my safety walking to my car late at night in the parking lot. Will airport security help walk me to my car?


    Crooks do not make a habit of hanging out in airport parking lots.


    I travel as a woman traveling alone often. When it's late at night, the shuttle driver usually watches for me or drives me right to my car. If you can find airport security, they will often escort you to your car. ZAP - predators target isolate people anywhere, including aiport parking lots.
