  • Nursing room for moms with infants
    Apr 20, 2015
    1
    This page mentions 2 rooms at IAH to nurse or pump milk. http://www.ifly.com/george-bush-intercontinental-airport/terminal-services-and-help I will be flying United so will be in Terminal B. Is there a room in Terminal B like this? If I need to go to Terminal A, how long will it take to get there? Also, I looked in the map for gate 84 like the webpage referenced but it seems out of date-anyone know where this location is?

     

    The webpage has a typo. The Nursery room is not in Terminal A, it is in Terminal B near gates 84-91.

    Hi, I´m flying from Guatemala to Orlando with a 2 hour layover in Miami with AA. Do I have to check out my bags? Will the 2 hours be enough time to catch my next flight? Thanks!

     

    Yes, you will arrive in Miami, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. That should be barely enough time.

    I am flying from DIA to SEA on Alaska Airlines and then need to get to Delta Airlines for a flight to NRT. I only have one hour between flights - will I make it?

     

    If your tickets were purchased together that should be enough time. You just have to take the underground train from C, D, or N where you will arrive to S where you will depart.

     

  • Mexico to Munich via IAH

    Hi, I am flying from Puerto Vallarta Mexico to Munich via Houston IAH I have 1 hr and 15 min layover, on Sun 26 April arrive 2.50 pm dep 4.05 pm. I have all United flights and arrive and leave from terminal E. No checked luggage only carryon, is that enough time to make the connection, will I have to go through customs and immigration, being I am in transit only in the US? Many thanks

     

    With carry on only I think you will make it. You will have to go through US Immigration and Customs but there is often a line for passengers with no checked baggage to save time. You will also have to go through security before going to your gate for your Munich flight.

    We will arrive at PHL 745am and have 2 hours and 20 min to go through immigration (we are not citizens) with a one year old before we fly to CLT at 1205pm. is this enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time.

     

  • connecting to domestic flight from international flight
    Apr 18, 2015

    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!

     

    What airlines is she flying? She will be able to re-check her baggage at the transfer desk in Terminal 5. Terminals 1-3 are connected to Terminal 5 by the ATS train.

  • 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.
