    Yes, just bring whatever you have with your name on it and hopefully anything with your picture on it if you have it (like a school or work ID).

    When going from terminal to F do you have to reenter security?


    The Shuttle bus from the other Terminals to Terminal F runs inside security.


  • KCM

    Hi, just wondering if Terminal C offers KCM for getting through security or just an expedited crew line. Thanks


    Considering Terminal C is a huge base for JetBlue, I'm fairly certain there's a crew line. In my years as an airline employee, I never encountered a decent sized airport that didn't have a crew line.

    If I purchase duty free in Calgary will I have to repack Liquor to go through security for a connecting easyJet flight or will sealed duty free clear security for carry on.


    I believe you will have to repack it.


  • Flying from St. Louis on American to JFK then Norwegian Air to Oslo
    Sep 1, 2015
    Will I go out of security to check in for Norwegian Air flight to Oslo if I am flying from St. Louis on American Airlines. Where can I meet my sister who is meeting me there via train.


    Yes, you will have to claim your bags from American and take them to Norwegian in Terminal 1 to re-check them. The AirTrain runs outside security. you could meet your sister outside the Norwegian ticket counter.

    I will be traveling from London to Dallas and connecting to Baton Rouge. If I buy duty free liquor in London how can I get it to Baton Rouge as I will have to go through security in Dallas again?


    You have to put it in your checked bag in between the time you claim it and before you re-check it. If you aren't checking a bag then you can't buy duty free liquor.

    Since we are flying to NZ onto Au, will we pass thru customs and immigration at both stops? Cheers


    Auckland allows sterile International to International connections, so you will not have to do anything with your bags or go through passport control in Auckland.

    Let me revise my last post.I land in the Gate B area and want to go to Gate C after I land to visit a shop at Denver International. Am I able to do this if I don't have a connection flight in that terminal?


    Denver only has one terminal.. C and D are concourses. Yes, you can take the Plane train from B to C after you arrive in Denver.

    I have an expired driver's license for a few months. Can I still fly home with it.


    Yes, but if you have another thing with your name on it that would be helpful.


  • Enough Connecting Time?
    Aug 14, 2015
    Am flying United from Montreal, Canada, and connect at Dulles. Is 50 minutes enough time to get thru' customs/passport control & security to connect with United to Charleston?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. Your arrival into Dulles will be like a domestic flight. All you have to do there is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
