  • Layover question
    Mar 1, 2016
    Friday 16th September Lufthansa 19:10 PTY Panama City Tocumen International 13:15(+1) FRA Frankfurt am Main 1hour 40min layover 14:55 FRA Frankfurt am Main 15:35 LHR London Heathrow I have a UK passport.. Do I have to go through customs/security? Do I have to collect my baggage? Is this enough time?


    So you're flying Panama City->Houston->Frankfurt->London? If so, in Houston you will go through US Immigration, customs, and security. You should not have to claim your luggage if you are on an International to International connection on United, but double check that with United employees in Houston. It's not clear to me how much time you have so I don't know if it's enough.


    No not houston i dont mention houston in that message at all Fri 16th september depart from Panama to frankfurt then 1hour 41min layover Then board a plane from Frankfurt to london Flying with lufthansa Customs? Baggabe reclaim?


    Then why did you post your question in the forum for Houston-Interncontinental airport if you're not stopping in Houston? All you have to do in Frankfurt is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Since you're not entering the Schengen Area you don't have to go through passport control.


    Ooooo my bad thought i could just ask about any flights here! Thanks!


  • Layover Advice

    Hesitating to book a flight because of the short layover at IAH Saturday 4th June 2016 10:30 LHR London Heathrow 13:30 ORD Chicago O'Hare International Sunday 5th June 2016 04:55(+1) ORD Chicago O'Hare International 07:43 IAH Houston George Bush Intercntl. 1 hour 21 minute layover 09:04 IAH Houston George Bush Intercntl. 10:54 GUA Guatemala City Will my bags be checked through to Guatemala? Will I have to go through customs? Is 1hour 21minutes enough time? Thanks!


    Yes, that is enough time. there is no US Customs when leaving the US. You will just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Houston on your way to Guatemala. You don't have to do anything with your bags there.


  • Date of Flying for arrival
    Feb 27, 2016
    I am trying to find info about a flight from Darwin to Brisbane, When I change the date to what it is here in Australia, 28/2/18, your weird programme changes it back to yesterday's date 27/2/16. This is of no value to me whatsoever. Hopeless !


    You are obviously an American company, , and it is 10.02 a.m. here in Australia. You arer still in 27/2/16. , but that is of no use to people wanting to use your website, ; remember it is a World Wide Web, not America wide Web, so do something to make your programme capable of realising that there are other countries that exist, even in a different time zone, and that it should be capable of supplying answers to queries, world wide.


  • Flight with China Southern
    Feb 25, 2016
    My flight is at 1:10pm on a friday.. Will I be able to catch the flight if I reach YVR at 12pm


    I would try to get there earlier than that. China Southern recommends arriving 90 minutes before your flight.


  • Flying your child unaccompanied or alone made easy
    Feb 16, 2016
    After researching how to send my child unaccompanied to visit his grandparents for what seemed like hours, a firiend told me about Weflykids which is a travel agency which only finds and books flights for kids. My agent took care of everything and the it cost me less than last summer! I'll be using them again this summer.


  • Connection time
    Feb 15, 2016
    I arrive into FRA from MRS and have a 1hr 30min connection time before my flight to BAH. Is this enough time?


    If both flights are Lufthansa that should be enough time.


  • Connecton versus Stopover in Italy
    Feb 9, 2016
    Usually domestic flights within a country other than US/CA(eg: BRI-FCO-FLR) are considered connections if 24hrs or less. A stopover is 24hrs or more. I heard Italy has a special exception and that a connection or transfer for domestic flights in Italy is 7 hrs or less. Is this true?


  • Puerto vallarta to montreal
    Feb 4, 2016
    Flying from puerto vallarta to montreal on united whit a flight change in chicago .Is 2 hours ok. Do i have to clear costum and imigration in Chicago.


    In Chicago you will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the ATS Train to your departure terminal and go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time.


  • ft myers to charlotte to london to barcelona
    Jan 31, 2016
    Hi, I am flying from RSW to CLT to LHR to BCN. So I will check in my luggage in fort Myers, understand I wont pick up my luggage in Charlotte and not go through immigration so one hour is enough in between. Then when I get to LHR will I have to pick up my luggage and go through security and immigration and recheck my luggage to go to Barcelona? I have 5 hours there so not to concern time wise. Will I have to go through immigration again in Barcelona? anything interesting to do in LHR? Thanks


    You won't have to claim your baggage in London or even go through Immigration there since you aren't entering the UK. You will go through Schengen immigration in Barcelona.

  • We were charged full fare for an infant and a 6 year old boy Jordan
    Jan 9, 2016
    I hope we can get a refund from Royal Jordan.


    There are no "infant" or "Child" fares. They only ask you how many infants and children for manifest reasons. All passengers occupying a seat are charged the adult fare.

  • Will I have enough time to connect to my next flight?
    Nov 20, 2015
    Hi! I am arriving to the DTW airport tomorrow at 128 from China and then will go through customs but my American Airlines flight at 305 is on the other terminal (Terminal N) so I know I have to go through security when I get there. Will a layover of 1 hr and 30 mins be enough time for me to make it on my next place? Let me know please!!


    I will als only have 2 carry ins, no checked luggage!


    It's possible if you check in for your American flight online before you leave China, your flight from China arrives on-time, and you hurry and get lucky with the shuttle. This is a very difficult connection. Also note that you aren't allowed 2 carry-on bags that have to go in the overhead bin.


  • Getting from Terminal E to Terminal C
    Nov 10, 2015
    Me and my husband are gonna arrive at Terminal E at 17:15 from Tokyo, and then we will catch the flight to Detroit departs at 19:30, Terminal C (JetBlue Airways). So we only have about one hour and thirty mins to go through US Immigration, claim our bags, walk to Terminal C and check-in again to head to Detroit. Is it enough time? And how long does it take to walk from Terminal E to C? Please advice and thanks a bunch.


    It's possible but doesn't leave much time to spare. It will take 15-20 minutes to change terminals.
