  • connecting to domestic flight from international flight
    Apr 18, 2015
    0
    My daughter is flying home from London next week and will land at OHare, change to a domestic flight, and then to Inidianapolis. My question is what does she do with her luggage once she clears customs? Does she need to recheck it and if so, where? It looks like she will need to take a shuttle from terminal five to her domestic flight terminal, is that also true? Both flights, international and domestic are booked on one ticket. Really looking for info about ALL the steps she will have to do. Thanks!

  • Need Help in Knowing Baggage Handling Assistance available in JFK

    Hi , My wife and kid both will be coming to JFK . From there they have to catch a connecting Flight. In JFK , she needs to pick up all the 4 check in bags and needs to re-check again for connecting Flight. It is very difficult to do so, when having a kid in hands. Is there any sort assistance / Service available in JFK for baggage handling ? Kindly help me with your inputs.

     

    There are people called skycaps who help people with their luggage for money. But there is no guarantee that one will be available when your wife needs one. There is no way to book one in advance. Perhaps she should pack a small foldable luggage cart into one of her bags.

    I'm travelling from Birmingham UK to Newark to Raleigh Durham nc can I put a lock on my suitcase?

     

    Yes, but security inspectors will cut it off if they need to get into your bag. Also, theft from inside baggage is very rare in the US.

    I'm travelling from Birmingham UK to Newark to Raleigh Durham nc do I need to change terminals?

     

    Maybe. Sometimes United flights from BHX arrive in Terminal B and sometimes they arrive in C. Some flights to RDU depart from C and some depart from A.

    I'm travelling from Birmingham UK to Newark to Raleigh Durham nc do I need to collect my luggage at Newark?

     

    Yes, you will need to collect your luggage to go through US Customs, then re-check it immediately after at the transfer desk.

    I am traveling from salt lake city on Delta and arriving at Terminal 5 - then I fly from lax to Guangzhou on China Southern Airlines. Does anyone know if I have to go through customs in LA or will my bag be checked all the way through to Guangzhou (or even Nepal?)

     

    You do not go through US Customs when leaving the US. You just have to walk from Terminal 5 to the International Terminal and go through security, assuming your tickets were purchased together and your bags are checked through to China Southern.

     

  • When to arrive for 7:30 a.m. flight to Canada

    I have a 7:30 a.m. Friday flight to catch to Montreal. What time should I arrive at LAX? Thanks in advance for any advice!

     

    Around 6 AM is fine. If you have to park or return a rental car, adjust time accordingly.

    I am flying out of Omaha, landing in Atlanta and have a 45min layover then getting on a Delta flight to Belize. Is this layover enough time??

     

    That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. All you have to to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse, E or F.

    I would fly from Buffalo to Philadelphia to LA on a Friday morning. Is an hour and 22 minute layover in Philadelphia long enough?

     

    Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you arrive in Terminal F it is connected to the other terminals by a shuttle bus inside security.

     

  • Custom time from Korea

    Flying from Korea to Seattle and then from Seattle to Houston on separate ticket. How long will it take to clear customs and recheck bags to make next flight to Houston? initial flight gets in from Korea at 9am. I am military as well moving duty stations.

     

    Since you're buying two separate tickets, you will have to go to the main terminal to claim your baggage and re-check it. I would leave at least 2.5 hours between flights.

    Planning a flight from WAS to CAN (Mexico) via Charlotte AP. Is 1H 12m layover good to go? 3 pax with US VISA. Thanks

     

    CAN is in China. WAS is a city code for Washington DC. Are you going to Cancun? That's CUN. If you're going from Washington DC to Cancun with a connection in Charlotte, yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    How long is the wait time, to go through customs, to get to the terminal? We are flying to Dubai this Monday from DFW, and would like to know if we need a four-hour window to process passports, and get through security.

     

    You do not go through US Customs when leaving the US.
