  • Transfer Time between 2E and 2F
    Mar 21, 2013
    Air France has only given me 65 minutes to make my international connection. I arrive at 2E and my connection is at 2F. Is this even possible? Do I have to take the bus between terminals or can I walk without having to go through security?


    Where are you coming from and going to?


  • IPL imperial county airport
    Mar 20, 2013
    I live in europe, usually I take a fligth from here to (IPL) imperial county, the itinerary has 1 or 2 stop, either new york - los angeles etc... I'ts been days I am triying to find a fligth and none of the search engines as e-dreams, expedia, momondo or any small company found it, I been calling to the airport but the answer machine keeps telling me is close or you are far from your desk. Kindly let me know if the airport is close or the fligth IPL - los angeles or any other stop to IPL doesn't exist anymore... if so let me know if there any other way to arrive to the airport form another city. I'm desperate please help!!!


    Starting next month, a new airline will be flying to IPL called SeaPort Airlines. You have to book your flights with them on a separate reservation and their flights to IPL will go from San Diego instead of Los Angeles. Alternatively, if you don't want to take SeaPort, the San Diego airport is a 193 km drive from Imperial and the Palm Springs airport is a 160 km drive from Imperial.


    You could also fly to Mexicali, Mexico, which is just across the border from Imperial, but I don't recommend that unless you've been to Mexico a few times and speak Spanish.


  • luggage service terminal 1
    Mar 19, 2013
    One of guests, Mr Gaston Vanduyseadem, is arriving tomorrow, March 20, with Brussels Airlines, flight 501, at 2.05pm at JFK and due to his physical condition, he will need assisitance wiht luggage handling from terminal 1 to terminall 5. He has a flight with Jetblue at 5.30pm, leaving from terminal 5. Can it be arranged that a luggage service is waiiting for him when he arrives at gate 1? Obviously, he wil pay for this serivice. Please let me know, so we can inform our guest before his departure tomorrow morning what he can expect upon arrival.


    Your guest needs to contact his first airline to arrange for transfer. If that is too late, he needs to advise his flight attendant of his upcoming need. I suggest that he open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text (re international arrivals procedure, and terminal transfers (P.S.: I have Brussels Airline listed as being at Terminal 8.)

  • Changing Airlines in JFK
    Mar 18, 2013
    We will be flying on Air Canada from Quebec City (YQB) to JFK with ether a transfer in Montreal or Toronto. In JFK will be taking Turkish airlines to Istanbul Here are my questions 1) Is it possible to check the bag all they way through to Istanbul even with two bookings that way will not pay the 25$? 2) Second will we have to go through US custom at JFK and recheck our bags with Turkish? If so how much time is recommended Thanks


    You generally aren't able to check a bag through when you purchase two separate reservations. You will clear US immigration in Montreal or Toronto, not JFK. If you purchase the tickets on two separate reservations, you will have to claim your baggage at the regular domestic baggage claim in JFK and re-check it with Turkish. I'd want at least 2 hours to do that, preferably 2.5.


    Also note that Air Canada arrives at Terminal 7 of JFK Airport, while Turkish Airlines uses Terminal 1. Look for the sign for the 'Airline Terminals Train' which makes its continuous loop around the terminals; however it stops in the unsecured areas, meaning you need, after checking your bag in with Turkish, to go through security check at Terminal 1 before proceeding to your connecting gate.


  • fear of flying
    Mar 10, 2013
    I am 41 and have never flown, very nervous to say the least, can I buy beer at 6am in the airport to sooth the nerves?


    Bars usually aren't open that early, but some might be open for breakfast and might be able to serve you a beer, but I wouldn't count on it.


  • Knitting needles

    My needles are regular straight ones - are they permitted on board?

  • Transfer times
    Feb 27, 2013
    I fly into Terminl 5 at JFK from Dublin (having pre-cleared customs and border control) and I am flying on to Tampa (also from Terminal 5). There is 90 mins between flights and my bags will be checked through. Is that enough time?


    Are you sure you arrive & depart from Terminal 5 which has gates 1 to 25. Note, however:my list only shows Hawaiian & JetBue airlines from this terminal). Check your ticket. If indeed T5, you simly walk over to your connecting gate. Otherwise, I suggest you open then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text for terminal details & connections via the Airline Terminals Train, running continuously between all terminals, but in the unsecured area, requiring going through security check before proceeding to connecting gate.

    Feb 7, 2013
    Is it possible to book a ticket and add the name later? Not sure who will be accompanying my elderly mother, but I want to book both tickets at the same time so the seats are together.


    No, you aren't able to do that.

  • predeparture requirements at iad
    Jan 29, 2013
    leaving for india from sfo by ua203,i will be booking my baggages for india at sfo,taking lh419 from iad to frankfurt.ua203 should reach iad by 1600hrs and lh419 should leave by 1740hrs.what are the predeparture requirements including security check at there direct shuttle service from d/c gate to b gate and what is the frequeny if shuttle reply.regards


    At IAD, the Underground Aerotrain runs in a continuous loop from the main terminal's post-security area to the center of the midfield concourses A/B and C/D, takes minutes, but presently does not serve the D gates; it can be used for the following gates: A1-32, B35-79, and C1-30. A shuttle bus runs from the D gates to the Main Terminal or to the A gates - between gates D15-21 & D9-11 and arrives at gate A6 of Midfield Concourse A/B. I suggest you open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.
