I brought lots of souvenirs from this place and once I got home I noticed that the guy didn't put 4 pens that I had purchased in bag. So I guess I'm out of luck now because I'm back in California and the number on the receipt is out of service.
one more question for the pdx to lax to tb...the day before if we check into af online and print boarding pass and go thru terminals to connector...do we have to check in with air france at all? or is it best to do it anyways and check in again at desk?
If when you check in for your flight from Portland it issues your Air France boarding pass then you don't have to check in with Air France at all.
Can anyone please tell me if United & Southwest share the same baggage claim area or are the separate
No, they are not in the same building. The Southwest baggage claim is in Terminal 1 and the United baggage claim is in Terminal 3.
I have booked a flight from PH -> LAX via Asiana airlines and a separate booking LAX -> DCA via Alaska airlines. Is 2hours 45min layover at LAX for immigrations, customs and baggage check enough for me to transfer to my next flight to DCA?
That's just enough time assuming your Asiana flight is on-time.
Thank you! :)
Mayor Roberts said flights Asia will start when the brand new ATC tower (second tallest in the country) is completed in 2020. The only question is where to in Asia? When will they Start? .
Does Anybody know/has the inside scoop where to Asia or will they not announce flights until they do?
The mayor is just spouting out crap. The control tower has nothing to do with flights to Asia. American could fly from Charlotte to Asia tomorrow if they wanted to. They obviously do not feel that there is currently a market for such flights. However, once they get more 787's I can see such a route starting. I imagine that Tokyo would be the first destination and the flight may actually be operated by JAL rather than American. However, this is just speculation. There are currently no announced flights from Charlotte to Asia.
Hi, I'm wondering if it's reasonable to catch a train from Lancaster to Waverly Train Station (7:15-9:43) and then catch a 12:30 international flight out of EDI? Allowing for the fact that we'll have two kids under 5 with us and need to check bags. We're open to taking a taxi between the train station and airport but want to be sure we don't miss our flight.
I will fly from Terminal 4 (KLM flight at 10:40 p.m.) on Sunday 5/29. How much time do you recommend I allot for check in and screening that day?
Arrive at the airport 3 hours before your flight if possible, so about 7:40.
i am flying into EWR terminal B from manchester england(MAN), and need to be over to terminal C to get my next flight for Fort Lauderdale(FLL). i am a british citizen. i know i need to clear immigration, but unsure of the steps to take after that. do i collect luggage? where do i put it? how to i get it transferred over to the next flight(terminal C)? how do i get over to terminal C? do i have to go through security again(where they check your hand luggage)? how far away are the gates? i have 2 hours 20 mins from landing, to my next flight taking off. on the way home, i am travelling from orlando airport(MCO) into terminal C, and have exactly an hour to get across to terminal B to make my flight back home to manchester england (MAN). how do i do that? what are the steps i need to take to make my flight home? i am worried sick we wont make it, or that our luggage makes it. all help greatly appreciated. never flown indirect to florida before, always done direct. thanks x
i should add that both flights are with UNITED, both ways. thanks x
You will claim your bags, go through US Customs, then immediately re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security. On the way back to Manchester both flights will be in Terminal C. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I am flying from the UK to Florida, connecting in JFK, could you please tell me the process when I arrive in JFK, both flights are with American Airlines on one ticket, will I have to collect luggage and recheck it in? Also how long does the process normally take on average. Thank you.
You will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. 2 hours is a reasonable time to allow for this process.
Flying into Atlanta today from Costa Rica then onto canada. was told to go through immigration but then TSA security again. i only have one hour. do we go to same TSA as others where currently there is 3-4 hours wait? will miss my connection. or is it another security line only for connections?
There is a separate security line for international connections, but that is still a very difficult connection
