I am travelling from Bahrain to Amsterdam to detroit to Orlando. Bahrain to detroit is by KLm amd then detroit to orlando is by delta.
Will my luggage go directly to orlando or do i have to collect my baggage and re-check in for orlando. How long will that take.
1. Detroit is your international arrival - KLM arrives at the North Terminal's Concourse D. On arrival you go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag (the tag should indicate layover and final destination Airport Codes). 2. You need to contact KLM whether they will transfer your bags at Detroit Metropolitan Airport (not all airlines do - in which case you would need to take your bag and check it with Delta, which is in the McNamara Terminal (Concourse A). 3. A shuttle bus runs every 10 minutes between the McNamara and the North Terminals, taking 7 minutes. Concourse A of McNamara has 1.5 miles of moving walkways, but also uses the Express Tram serving the South station near gate A11, the Terminal station in the center near the water feature, and the North station near gate A67.
Terrible WiFi connections. Fades in and out and this is every time I fly thru IAH. So bad I look for alternative routes just to avoid. Simple fix but sems just not to be a priority for this airport.
Maybe IAH is not aware of this problem - I suggest you call them at (281) 230 3100 or send an email to:
I have a 8 x 10 inch covered silver dish that is an old family heirloom. Can I take it as carry on?
When approaching the security checkpoint, take it out (unwrapped) and show it to the security guard - otherwise the metal going through the Xray will alert security.
I am flying into Madrid to Terminal 1 and need to meet up with someone who is flying into Terminal 4S. Where is the best place to meet? Neither of us have ever been to Madrid Airport so don't know any landmarks. Appreciate recommendations.
1. While terminals 1, 2 & 3 are next to each other, Terminal 4, as well as satellite terminal 4S are separate. (The large new Terminal 4, consists a main terminal T4 and a satellite T4S, which are over 2 km apart & served by automated trains.) I suggest that you meet up at the main terminal 4, on the arrivals level, in front of the information counter. Your friend can take the automated driverless train between T4 and T4S which runs every two minutes. You can take the free shuttle bus from T1 to T4 running 6:30am-11:30pm every 5 mins; 11:30pm-1:50am every 20 mins; 1:50am-6:30am every 40 mins).
Will the airport shuttle at IAH take me to Hobby Airport??
The SuperShuttle at IAH (Tel: 713.523.8888) or visit takes reservations and makes picks-ups at residences & businesses and also serves Houston Hobby.
My United flight from Columbus arrives in Houston at 8:10 am on March 4. I fly Continental to Tegucigalpa at 9:20 am. Is this enough time to get my connecting flight? Will my luggage go straight through to Tegucigalpa?
1. You arrive at IAH via United in Terminal C; however, Continental is using domestic terminals A,B,C and international terminal E (TE) - which is most likely your departure terminal. (The Airport does not list the gate number). Look at your ticket to see which gate you depart from - gate numbers precede the Terminal (i.e., C14, E12). Gate areas of TC connect to TE by walkway (but you need to go through security check at TE. All terminals are connected by the above-ground TerminaLink inside security, making its continuous round and taking only minutes. Either way, you have enough time for transfer.

You did not state which Airport.
My daughter and I are flying from the US to Rome, but we arrive on different days. She arrives the day before me but is going to take the train back to the airport to pick me up. Where is the best place for us to meet at the airport that will be accessible to both of us? It must be accessible to both of us because she will not be a passenger on the day that I arrive.
FCO Leonardo da Vinci Airport has two terminals service non-schengen countries (including foreign) - Terminals 2 & 3. I suggest you meet in the large Terminal 3 at the Arrivals level, near the Information counter. (Terminal 3 has 5 exit doors. (Note there is also a Rome Ciampino Airport CIA).
