How can I find out what gate my flights will be arriving to and departing from? Do I have to wait until I actually check in to find that out? I'm not flying until June but would like to know how far the gates are from each other at each stop.
I have 1.5 hrs layover in SEA from Hongkong before heading off to Edmonton, Canada. Is this enough time? I understand that I have to pass immigration and customs before go to domestic flight terminal. Thank you.
Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. You barely have enough time if everything goes perfectly and all flights are on the same reservation.
I am going to Dubai with a round trip ticket. Since I will be originally coming from Norfolk, Since my visit will be for 2 months or more I am planning to book a one way ticket only from Norfolk to IAD (where I will have my flight to Dubai). Since I have experience booking a round trip and again re-booking it again and again because of weather and business cancellation, I just thought that it will be more practical and less expensive if I book one way to IAD and book the return once I have finalized my itinerary. My question is this: Will Norfolk and IAD Airport will require me to have return ticket on hand since it is only a visit and I should be expected to return. Please advise. Prompt response is really appreciated.
No airport requires you to have a roundtrip ticket. Additionally, there is no US Immigration, Customs, or passport control when leaving the US. You will just show your passport to the Emirates gate agent when checking in and boarding your plane.
