  • TDravel between terminals 8 &7
    Jul 21, 2012
    My 89 yr old sister will be arriving at terminal 8 on a United Express Flight from SMX on 9/8 at approx 7:30 with 1hr-37min to get from Term 8 to Term 7 to board a United plane to BWI. Is this enough time for her to reasonably expect to make that connection? Your prompt reply will be appreciated before I finalize her ticket. Thanks, jdh


    I presume you sister would change flights on arrival at LAX (Los Angeles Airport) from Terminal 8 to Terminal 7. These terminals are not connected, other than by a short walkway, necessitating her to leave T8 and go through security check at T7 before proceeding to connecting gate. As I presume that you sister is not very mobile, I suggest you contact United when making reservations and state that she will need assistance (should be done at least 48 hours prior to departure. Your time frame would sure suffice.

    is anyone on here flying tomorrow's flight 1210 from chicago to las vegas? If so, my daughter is coming off a connecting flight from boston and is needing your help to guide her to the right gate for this flight as she is no longer considered an unaccompied minor. she doesn't know how to read the monitors on the screen so if you are connecting to this flight, please help my daughter get home to me safely. Thank you!


    I searched Flight 1210 for tomorrow - turns out Southwest departs Chicago Midway airport for Las Vegas at 10:10am at gate B11. However, I could not find a flight from Boston to Chicago (searched both Chicago O'Hare ORD and Midway MDW airports. Your daughter's ticket should indicate arrival & departure time and gates and Airport Codes (ORD or MDW). I suggest you open or & click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS - scroll down to the text and find terminal & connections. Arrivals & departures terminals/ concourses / gates depend on which airlines are used.

  • terminal transfer time
    Jun 25, 2012
    transfer time from terminal 3 to 8? Have to redo security at terminal 8? Use of Airtrain?


    You didn't mention Airport name. 1. Indeed at JFK, Airtrain makes its frequent round and takes minutes between each terminal , but you need to go through security at T8. 2. At LAX you need to take the blue LAX bus on the island across from Terminal 3, which runs every 12-15 mins making stops at TBIT /TB, T4, 5, 6, 7 & 8 - 6 stops or 15 mins. In both JFK & LAX you need to go through security check at T8 before continuing to your departing gate.

    Jun 10, 2012
    our daughter is travelling to japan from msp for an extended stay, and needs to take her guitar with. do united and all nippon allow guitars on board?,


    open both (a) and (b) - scroll down to 'musical instruments'.


    Thank you sujun12, that is helpful. I have been searching various airlines, and they seem to bury this info pretty well.


  • flyer tips
    Jun 5, 2012
    I have never flown before, and bought my tickets on line. So now I have a piece of paper I printed out that says i bought the tickets with ticket and seat numbers,,,So now what do i do with this when go to tacke my flight?


    You need to take your printout to the Airport and either go with it to your airline counter for a boarding pass and baggage check-in (if you have a bag, in addition to your carry-on bag, which must fit either under your feet or in the overhead bin of your airplane) or - if you don't have a bag to check in - go to the self-service check-in machines and print our your boarding pass. Then you go through security check and on to your gate. I advise you to open, enter on top your Airport; then click on "Quick Links" at left and select "Terminal Map" - the map and the description thereunder will give you an idea of the airport's layout and how to get around. Also under "Traveler Tips" on top choose "Airports and First-Time flyers".

  • Which airline to check in & checked bags
    May 9, 2012
    Hello, I haven't traveled much and I have many questions. One of them is which airline to I do check in with at the airport? My itinerary says "SCANDINAVIAN SAS OPERATED BY /EXPRESSJET AIRLINES DBA UNITED EXPRESS" and "SCANDINAVIAN SAS OPERATED BY /DC FOR KF". For my first departing flight I will be leaving from Nashville (BNA). My other questions is: if I ordered my ticket from Expedia, and I have many stops, do I have to claim and recheck my luggage every time I change planes? These are all the things my itinerary says: SCANDINAVIAN SAS OPERATED BY /EXPRESSJET AIRLINES DBA UNITED EXPRESS, SCANDINAVIAN SAS, SCANDINAVIAN SAS OPERATED BY /DC FOR KF, AMERICAN AIRLINES OPERATED BY AMERICAN EAGLE.


    At BNA you check in with United. Your bags will be transferred thereafter at each leg of your journey.

    If you are 20 are there any possibilities to rent a car? Otherwise how can do you easiest transport from the airport to Kona (the other side)?


    The Airport is only seven miles from Kailua-Kona. The pubic Hele-On bus (tel. 808-961-6744 or visit offers limited service between the Airport and Kailua-Kona town. In order to rent a car, you need to have valid driver's license and your car insurance card. If you are a good driver, say no to collision coverage if asked - it's expensive.

  • Need a good map of the terminal
    Apr 23, 2012
    When googling the Oslo airport terminal map all I can find is an overview showing the shape of the terminal. I want to find a good map showing gate numbers, restaurants, banks, restrooms, etc. Can you provide me a site where I can find such a map? Thank you.


    While OSL does not have an official "Terminal Map", you may want to visit - when clicking on a listed item there, it will show you the location (no gate number) and other details.
