    my step is traveling from mexico to another overseas destination with change of flight through houston. will he still need a transit visa? if so how would that be obtained. he is traveling on a russian passport....


    Since he is a Russian Citizen he will need a transit visa. To get one he needs to contact a US Embassy or Consulate. There is one in Mexico City.

    I'm a bit confused. If i fly from moncton to honolulu thru newark. On my way back home, where can I pass the canada immigration? Thank you.


    On your way to Honolulu, you will go through US Immigration in Terminal C in Newark, claim your baggage, go through customs, and re-check it. Then go up to the departure level and through security and to your departure gate which will also be in Terminal C. On your return to Moncton, you will not go through any immigration in Newark and instead go through Canadian immigration in Moncton.


    Thank you very much.


  • Connecting on KLM in Amsterdam
    Jan 12, 2014
    Is 90 minutes enough time to connect in Amsterdam when flying from the US to Copenhagen as final destination?


    That depends on on-time arrival at AMS. Arrivals from a non-Schengen (foreign) country: note that the passport will be checked upon arrival at, and departure from, Amsterdam Airport. On arrival, after passport control, follow signs to 'Baggage Hall' located on the ground level, retrieve your bags, & go through customs for security check. If you have nothing to declare, proceed to the Arrivals Hall through the green passage way. If connecting to a Schengen country, go through ticket control & security check; if connecting to a non-Schengen country, security check will be at the gate. Note that the transfer desks offer transfer information.

    Am I wong to say are the 2 worst companys to fly with? I say and ask this because even Copa and Spirit being cheap and have rude Flight attendants cant even compare the Rude, Phone agents and the mis-use of the please wait your call will be answered in order "Im a number not a guy that just pay $6000.00 to fly to see Rome on just flight?" Im a number and when you get someone and you ask them a question they have to ask you 4 times to understand you and to even get the "Number" right not to say that my flight is the last flight of the day when you say that they still Ask What day is the flight leaving? Are you kidding me? Im at the D$@# airport trying to catch a flight What day Im just here to chill out and see what I can get into? FYI dont ask for a ticket number if you cant read my flight or speak english............

  • Landing in Newark
    Apr 10, 2013
    My daughter left Tampa to Providence 3 hour lay over in Newark


    What's your question?


  • Advanced info on flight
    Apr 7, 2013
    My wife is an international flight attendant and we use this site all the time to check if the aircraft arrived the night before to an airport for the early morning flight, to check gate changes, length of flight, and delays. I also keep track of my wife's departure/arrival times during her flights. Many times, Flight Tracker has info before the airlines posts it. GREAT service. Thank you


    I echo your comment. I could not have said it better myself. On one occasion I observed my wife's flight make a complete circle over four states to avoid weather and then emergency land to take on more fuel. Flight Tracker was ahead of the airline status line. Keep up the GREAT effort.

    trying to track flight from Heathrow to Singapore that was scheduled to leave at 21:55 yesterday. (it's now 08:00). just tells me the flight hasn't left yet because its reporting on today's flight. can't specify departure date, so this is useless


  • Flight 786
    Dec 28, 2012
    Looks like this flight never left Sanford, Orlando Long night ahead for flight 787 passengers trying to get to Orlando.


  • Not real time
    Dec 28, 2012
    I was tracking a flight out of JFK tonight - Delta - iFly showed the airplane departed on time, but according to, the flight left the gate, but is on ground hold (bad wx). Would be nice if these "flight tracker" sites provided real data, versus interpolating scheduled times...


    be safe
