  • Which airport is better to fly into?
    Jun 25, 2016
    I have 5 airports that I can fly into. I don't know which one is the best. I'm going to Anaheim, CA. SNA which is the closest, LAX, BUR, ONT, & SAN. I'm flying from Charlotte, NC. please let me know thanks!


    Compare the fares at SNA and LAX. The advantage of LAX is that you can also fly nonstop from Charlotte. LAX is less than an hour to Anaheim in most traffic. Don't bother with BUR, ONT, or SAN, they're all pretty far from Anaheim.

    Jun 23, 2016
    i have a flight from lima-Peru to calgary. however i have a connection flight in Houston for 2 h . would this be enough time to go through security checking , picking luggage and all? thanks in advance.


    You will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security. You should not have to claim and re-check your bags. You should have just enough time.


  • Which Seats Are Better?
    Jun 5, 2016
    Do the exit row seats on American Recline and have more leg room? Do last row seats of the plane have more leg room? Which seats do you think are most comfortable? (Excluding First Class)


    I don't know if this will help or not but AA600 CLT-PHX & AA694 PHX- HNL to find out.


    On you can put in your exact flights and see information on specific seats.

  • Flying in from Costa Rica and find my connecting flight to Calgary
    May 24, 2016
    I am flying into Houston Airport from San Jose Costa Rica and need to find my connecting flight to Calgary in 90 minutes. My checked baggage is going straight to Calgary so i don't need to pick it up. Can anyone help me out as to how i navigate my way through the Houston airport to find my flight to Calgary. Where i need to go and how to get there? I understand I won't get my departing gate # to Calgary till I have cleared all necessary areas.


    You will go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security. Since your bags are checked through you can use Onestop immigration and security. If your flight to Calgary is operated by United it will depart from Terminal B or C and if it is operated by Air Canada it will depart from Terminal A.


  • TSA wait times at Midway Chicago
    May 23, 2016
    Can anyone update me as to if the TSA waits are as long as they have been in the past few weeks at Midway in Chicago?


    It really depends on the time of day. I recommend arriving 2 hours before your flight. The Lines look very long at MDW since there is nowhere to queue the line up - it just backs up into the bridge and then into the lobby.


  • Guatemala to Houston with only 90 minutes layover to Denver
    May 16, 2016
    Do I have to collect my checked bags for customs???? My flight Houston to Denver is on a different concourse. I'm afraid I won't make my connection to Denver.


    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through security, and to your departure gate. That's not realistically enough time for your connection.


    I didn't think so. How long does it take to go from Customs, thru security and to Concourse C?


    Security is the big issue. It really depends on the time of day. That part alone can take over an hour.


    Evening ... 5:00

    Try using one Skin Care product line only. These products have been manufactured in such a way that they help enhance the potency of each other. They would work better in treating and healing your skin.


  • Connecting flights with lufthansa
    Apr 29, 2016
    I'm traveling from Vilnius to Bruxelles via Frankfurt. I will change a plane in FRA. Do I need to do check in and go through security check in Frankfurt?


    Both flights are in the Schengen Area. All you have to do in Frankfurt is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Changing Flights
    Apr 27, 2016
    We booked return flights from Australia to Madrid with iFly (Qantas/Emirates). We are currently in Spain but we would like to change our flights home on July 22nd to go via Fiji. Is this possible and if so who do we contact? Thanks


    This would not be possible without buying a new ticket since neither Qantas or Emirates flies to Fiji.


  • Stopover in YYZ from YVR to final destination MCO
    Apr 22, 2016
    I'm flying to Orlando from Vancouver with a stopover in Toronto. Do I check in from Vancouver as a domestic flight or international flight? What happens after I arrive in Toronto to make the connecting flight? Thanks!!


    Your check in in Vancouver will be like a domestic flight. In Toronto after you arrive you will head towards US Departures where you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs.


    Thank you soo much!! Will I have enough time to clear customs? I think I arrive in YYZ around 128pm and the next flight leaving to MCO is 245pm


    That should be enough time.


  • Security on different concourse
    Apr 15, 2016
    When arriving in concourse C and departing in Concourse D do you have to go through security?


    No you do not. All gates in Charlotte are connected inside security.


  • 1 hour? Calgary Cananda to New Orleans
    Apr 14, 2016
    We are traveling from Calagary to New Orleans - through IAH. Land and Depart at Terminal 3. Where do we clear Customs? Is one hour enough time?


    Houston does not have a Terminal 3. You will arrive in Terminal B or C and depart from Terminal B or C. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.


  • Delayed in Las Vegas
    Apr 11, 2016
    They have us along with lots of other planes sitting on the runway for at least the next hour...anyone know what's the cause?


    There are low clouds and winds out of the East in Las Vegas, which is abnormal there and is screwing up their arrival abilities.


  • Passport control or Immigration at Frankfurt or destination
    Apr 9, 2016
    My wife and daughter are flying from Mumbai to Basel (Switzerland) via Frankfurt using Lufthansa. She is in possession of Swiss visa. Her layover is only 120 minutes. Does they need to go through the immigration process at Frankfurt before catching flight for Basel or the passport check and immigration will be done at Basel directly ?


    Passport control will be done in Frankfurt since that is where they are entering the Schengen Area. They have enough time.


    Thanks ZAP
