    We will be traveling from Toronto YYZ to LAX with a connecting flight to Kona . Is there special security while we are waiting .

     

    There's no "special" security. Whether you go through security depends on what airlines you are flying. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.

    I am flying from Vienna - Dusseldorf through JFK and there overlay to San Diego. I am arriving to T8 and departing from the same terminal. I am flying Air Berlin. Will I need to go through customs in JFK and re check my bag or will I do it in San Diego?

     

    In JFK you will go through US Immigration, claim your bag, go through US Customs, re-check your bag at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your AA departing gate.

    My husband is flying from Doha to Chicago with final destination being Charlotte. Will he have to go thorough customs and immigration on arrival in Chicago or just at his final destination in Charlotte?

     

    He will go through US Immigration and Customs in Chicago, Terminal 5. He will have to go through US Immigration, claim his bags, go through US Customs, then re-check his bags at the transfer desk, then go up 2 levels and take the ATS train to his departure terminal (if he is flying American/US Airways to Charlotte, that would be Terminal 3), then go through security and to his departure gate.

    I have been told that the security checkpoints close during the early hours of the morning. What time do they open and will I have enough time to get to my gate after checking bags?

     

    They will open at 4 or 4:30. Of course you will have enough time! Do you think they would make it impossible to get on certain flights?

    Hi I'm flying home to Dublin from greenville tomorrow and have a connecting flight in charlotte..will my luggage go the whole way frm Greenville to Dublin? Do I need to go through security or customs in charlotte or do I just go straight to my gate?

     

    Your luggage will be checked straight through. You Will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. Your arrival into Charlotte will be like a domestic flight, so all you will have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • Water park pass ID Card with your and day of birth

    Can I use my water park pass ID card to get onto the plane. It has my full name and my day of birth. I'll be returning from Vegas back to Hawaii and my military ID card will be expired. Can I use my water park pass Id

     

    Use your Military ID along with a secondary piece of information with your name on it (such as the water park ID). The military ID, as an official government identification, carries much more weight, even if it's expired.
