  • Picking bags at International checkpoint
    Oct 19, 2012

    I will be arriving in Charlotte (CLT) from Brazil. Then my connecting flight is from CLT to LAX, but I plan to skip that leg and take a new Delta Airlines flight from CLT to ATL. I understand that I have to go through customs and re-check my bags once I land in CLT. Would there be any problems if I pick up my bags and instead of re-checking them, take them to check in to my new flight to ATL? Is there any ticket counter around the area after passing through customs?

     

    I also forgot to mention that my flight from Brazil to CLT is on US Airways. I will be taking a different airline if I skip the recheck in process.

     

    On arrival at CLT at Concourse E of the passenger terminal,via US Airways, and going through passport control, pick up bags, go through customs clearance, take your bags and go to the Delta counter to check in your bags & get your boarding pass, then proceed to Concourse A with gates A1-12 - accessible from the ticketing level and served by Delta,

     

  • Gate?

    Where is gate SH2?

     

    LGA has no such gate. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/lga, click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down to the detailed text showing Airline affiliation, concourses, gates and transfer options.

     

    Gate SH2 is at Terminal A or more commonly "Marine" terminal.

    I am coming to frankfurt by UA900 @9.45 am and taking Luftansa LH758 @11.00 am to Chennai, India, Do I have to go through immigration or any other clearences as I have only 75 minutes to board the Chennai flight.

     

    You arrive & depart at Frankfurt Airport from Terminal 1. While United uses Concourse B, Lufthansa uses both Concourses A & B - all with corresponding gates. If you do not yet have a boarding card for your connecting flight, you can obtain one at the gate or at the Transfer Desk in the B Concourse of Terminal 1. To transfer between B and A gates, you can use the transfer tunnel outside security, or the SkyLine train inside security, which leaves every 2-3 mins. (On arrival you will need to go through non-Schengen passport control - just follow signs.) You have sufficient time.

    Does anybody know which Concourse do most Alaska Airlines land? Or, more specifically, those coming from Anchorage? I have to write detail step-by-step instruction for a friend's mother what to do and where to go...

     

    Today's search for Anchorage flights via Alaska Air brought up gates C, D & N - C & D are Concourses, N is the North Satellite. (search: http://www.portseattle.org/Sea-Tac/Flights-Airlines/Pages/default.aspx).

    My 2 sisters and I will be arriving at Ord from stl on American. One is in wheelchair. We fly to Ireland on Aer Lingus.What is best way to get there?

     

    You arrive at ORD via AA at Terminal 3 - from there take the ATS train (look for signs) to your connecting Terminal 5, served by Air Lingus. T5 has only one Concourse M, wrapping around concession court, and has to the left gates M12-M21 to the right; to the right gates M7-M1, and extends northward in the center to gates M8-M11. It is important that you check with AA as to whether they will transfer your bags to the AirLingus flight - if not, you would have to claim your bags at T3 and re-check them in at T5! The wheelchair will be stored in the hull of the aircraft when you arrive at the gate. Note that on your return to ORD, you will need to go through the customs clearance process.

     

  • Post-security transfer from TA to TB?
    Oct 17, 2012

    Is there a post-security bus to transfer from TA (arriving on an Air Canada flight, so already cleared US immigration) to TB (departing on United on an international flight) without having to exit-->Airtrain-->security? Have time, but want to avoid the hassle...especially over Thanksgiving...

     

    The shuttle bus at EWR only runs between Terminals A & C, as alternative to the AirTrain serving all three terminals, but in their non-sterile /pre-security areas - meaning you will need to go through security check on arrival at Terminal B. The Airtrain runs on the newly-designated 'All Gates' levels (between levels 2 & 3).

     

  • Getting from 2G to 2E

    I shall arrive on an Air France fligt from Billun Denmark and go on to Los Angeles on an other Air France flight from terminal 2E. Will our baggage be transfered automaticly, or do we need to collect it at 2G and check it again at 2E?

     

    Since you are using Air France for both legs of your journey, and you arrive from a Schengen (domestic) country, your bags should automatically be transferred to your connecting flight at CDG Airport. However, keep in mind that Satellite 2G is further away from the rest of the satellites - you need to take the shuttle bus between 2E & 2G - signs will direct you.

    Is United Express coming from Harlingen in the same terminal as American?

     

    American Airlines uses Terminal A at IAH, while United uses TA, B, C & E - all have corresponding gates. Your ticked and the overhead screen on arrival will indicate connecting gate.

     

    At IAH Airport, American Airlines uses Terminal A at IAH, while United uses TA, B, C & E - all have corresponding gates. Your ticket and the overhead screen on arrival will indicate connecting gate.

    we r flying in philadelhpia at 5:11 pm on terminal B from Raleigh with US airwais, and our next flight is to Istanbul from terminal A at 6:15 pm with USairways. what is the fastest way to get to there without missing our flight?

     

    Transfer passengers at PHL do not need to re-enter security checks, as Terminals B & TA-West & TA-East are connected at post-security. Simply walk to your connecting gate. US Airways uses both TA-West (gates A14-26) & TA-East (gates A1-13; the overhead screens on arrival will indicate your connecting gate.

    I am traveling on UA900 from SFO to FRA arriving at 8:45am and departing on LH1278 to ATH at 9:35am. Do I have any chance of making this connection knowing that I have to get off the jet and proceed through foreign passport control?

    I am supposed to reach FRA by UA 9oo flight @9.45 am and have to board LH 758 to MAA 11.00am. Whether I have enough time?. By any chance my SFO flight is delayed and I am not able to board MAA flight what is the alternative arragement Airlines will provide?.

     

    Both United and Lufthansa use Terminal 1 of Frankfurt Airport; while United used Pier B - it may now arrive on the brand-new 'Pier A-Plus, where all incoming flights from the US will be handled in Area A (not sure if that is already effective). Lufthansa uses Piers A & B with corresponding gates. Look on arrival for your connecting flight number, gate & departure time.

     

  • From Gate D6 to Gate G21

    I will be traveling with a l year old and I have only 35 minutes to connect from D6 to G21. What is the quickest route in the MSP airport?

     

    At MSP, Terminal 1 (Lindbergh Terminal) - The the upper level is surrounded on three sides by Concourses A through G - Concourses E & F are in the center with Concourse D, C, A & B to the right and Concourse G to the left: at Concourse D - walk from D6, past D1 to exit, walk over to Concourse G & head for signs to gates 11-22. you need to be the first one out of the arriving aircraft!

     

  • Malta to Athens via Rome

    We will be travelling by Air Malta from Malta arriving T3 then only 1 hour have to depart on Aegean Air to Athens. Question would Air Malta check bags thru from Malta to Athens with Aegean Airlines, and also is 1 hour transit sufficient to board next flight.

     

    While both Air Malta & Aegean Air use Terminal 3 - which has gates D1-10, G1-14, & H6-19, you need to contact Air Malta to find out if they transfer your bags; if not, you need to get your bags on arrival and re-check them in at the Air Malta desk. One hour should suffice in either instance.

     

  • Flying out of D12 closest United Club
    Oct 15, 2012

    Where is the closest United Club I can go to without having to re-enter security?

     

    At IAH, Terminal D, the United Club(s) should be on level 3 or 4, which has gate D1-D12. IAH obviously has not updated its maps and service listings, as it still lists "Continental Presidents Clubs" - in other terminals, but no listing for United - Terminal D map does not list United Club (see http://www.gocampaign.com/f2h2_com/iah20101217.html ) -
