    Will the airport allow me to go thru security to meet my son at the gate when he arrives? He is 13 and I am hesitant to let him try to find his way thru the airport at both Dallas and Atlanta.


    I understand that your son departs DFW and arrives at ATL airports - both of which are large and I suggest that your son opens both sites to familiarize himself with the layout of the passenger terminals: he should open or, and click on "Terminal Map" Found at the upper left side under "Quick Links". Arrival/Departure from Terminals, Concourses and gates are mainly determined by which airline he uses. His ticket will show the gate number. Also, the ifly site will show under the Quick Links "Flights & Airlines and their location. You are not allowed beyond the security checkpoint. Depending on the Airline, he will arrive either at the North or South terminal, or at Concourses T, A through E. Concourses A-E are connected in the center by the APM train. Concourse T can be reached by foot. You can meet him in the Atrium, in front of the Main Security checkpoint.

    I arrive at Terminal 6 and my next flight ( national flight ) is from terminal 8., 1 hour later. My airline does not transfer my bags. Is it possible? How must I do it precisely if I want to do it as quick as possible? Thanks


    Yes unfortunately airlines not belonging to the same alliance, or without co-agreement with the other airline can refuse baggage transfer. It is always a good idea to either consult the airlines' website prior to making reservations or find out at the check-in counter whether your airline transfers. After arrival at LAX in Terminal 6 and claiming your bags, you need to take either: (a) the tunnel to T7, exit T7 and take the walkway to T8 - or (b) exit T6 and catch the LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island (in front of each terminal), under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', which runs every 12-15 mins. and takes about 5 mins. With more than one bag, you need to opt for (a) - using either a baggage trolley or a skycap.

    Hi there. I am arriving on a United Airlines flight from Boston arriving at 16h04 and have to connect to a SAA flight departing at 17h40.Is this enough time?


    While United uses at IAD Midfield Concourses A, B, C & D (look at your ticked for your gate number - i.e., A32) while South African Airways uses Concourse B. While you can walk between Concourses A & B, you need to take the AeroTrain to C gates. D gates are only served by shuttle (mainly used for arrivals). As arriving passenger, follow signs "to Baggage claim / Ground Transportation" - then domestic arrivals at A, B or C gates should follow AeroTrain sign. You have enough time.
