    I will be flying into Houston from Grand Cayman and Connecting to Vancouver(YVR). Will need to go through US customs/immigration, claim my luggage, and recheck it. I will be connecting from terminal E to C. I will have 3 very large bags with me, is there a porter service to assist me in carrying my luggage between terminals?

    Hello, i arrive in washington dulles airport (coming from copenhagen) anyways , i will tranfer flight to a flight that is going to houston , im a bit worried since the airport is big and has aerotrain and also because im traveling alone , and also that i have never been in us airport. i would like to get some information(mabe what i should think about ) so i can be alittle more prepared:)

     

    You will arrive and be taken to the International Arrivals Building, where you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk. Then you will go through security and take the AeroTrain or mobile lounge to your departure concourse (either C or D).

    I'm flying from Kansas City to ORD on American which arrives on T3, then flying Aer Lingus which departs from T5, I understand I need to take the train over and I have 1 1/2 hours connection time, but I just realized that if I check baggage I'll have to recheck it and it's probably not enough time, would I also need to clear security again in T5?

     

    Yes, you will have to go through security again in T5 and yes, your connection time would make it difficult for you to transfer baggage, even if your AA flight is on-time.

    Flying from Toronto Canada to San Francisco via Air Canada. Arriving at terminal 1 Int at San Francisco,then onto Santa Barbara via United Airlines at terminal 3.First time in San Francisco. How long will it take to walk from terminal 1 Int to terminal 3? Also, will my baggage be sent on to my flight to Santa Barbara, or do I have to pick up my baggage and go through security again? Thanking you in advance.

     

    Air Canada does not use Terminal 1 in SFO. They use the international terminal. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. Air Canada uses both the G and A sides of the International Terminal. If you arrive on the G side you can just walk to your United gate in Terminal 3. If you arrive in the A side you will have to cross the international terminal and walk to Terminal 3 and go through security.

    I think that rental companies motivate people to rent two cars instead of one and use it by turns. Example with limo service bwi confirms that - I hardly believe that spouses will take separate cars.

     

  • Best way to get to Terminal E from Terminal C

    I arriving at DFW from HNL at Terminal C on American Airlines. My next filight is with US Airways and departs from terminal E. What is the best way to travel to Terminal E from Terminal C. This is my first time at DFW and I am not familiar with the airport at all.

     

    All terminals are connected inside security by the SkyLink Train. Just follow signs to the SkyLink and then take the train that says it is going the correct direction to E. Also, HNL-DFW flights can also arrive in Terminal D, so don't get thrown off if that happens. The SkyLink can still take you where you need to go.

    I am meeting a friend that is flying in from Milan on Emirates arriving Terminal 4. I am going to have him take the train back with me. Where can I meet him? Could I meet him at baggage claim?

     

    The international baggage claim is in a secure area between immigration and customs. You can meet him at the exit of customs on the lower level of Terminal 4.

     

  • Someone stole my ID!!

    Next week my boyfriend graduates from Marine bootcamp training. Last night someone stole my wallet which had all my money and the most important thing to get on the plane; MY ID!! I never went on a plane before and I honestly am not sure if they'll let me fly or not. I was wondering if someone could give me some advice and tell me if there's anythig else I can do.

     

    Bring everything you reasonably can with your name on it. If you have a student or employer ID with your photo on that, bring that.

     

    Thank you so much! My student ID was stolen in my wallet to but I have my social security card and birth certificate. Is that enough?

     

    It helps. Anything with your picture and name on it would help more though.

    I am a non US citizen travelling from Rome to Miami by Alitalia landing at 1545. My nect connection is on a different flight at 1710 Caribbean airlines. Is there enough time according to you

     

    85 minutes is not a realistic transfer time between two international flights on two unrelated foreign airlines at Miami.

    I fly into Detroit on Air France from Austin at 8:55 pm and my connecting flight leaves for Paris also on Air France at 9:35 pm - very short time to get to my next flight - will I make it and do I need to re-check my baggage

     

    All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You don't have to do anything with your baggage. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    We are US citizens leaving the US for London for 5 days, then on to Paris for 4 days. We will go thru customs in London, but will we have to go thru customs again in Paris?

     

    You will go through Passport control when you go to Paris either at the Paris airport (if flying), on the train (if taking the train), or at the ferry dock (if taking a ferry).

    Hi. I'm not a US Citizen, I'm flying from Curacao to Miami then to Atlanta (both flights with American Airlines). Do I need to claim my luggage and then re-check it, or is this not necessary? Thanks!

     

    Yes, in Miami you will go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, Re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.

    Do I have to go back through security in order to go from Terminal 1 to TBIT at LAX? If so, how long does it usually take on a Wednesday or normal day? Thanks!

     

    Yes, you will have to go through security in the TBIT. If you have checked bags you will also have to claim them from Southwest in T1 and bring them with you to the TBIT to re-check. Security lines in the TBIT are generally not too bad (5-10 minutes, but varies greatly by time of day).

    I am flying from bangor, to detroit to france to shanghai. I only have an hour and 50 minutes in paris to get to my gate. I'm pretty I'm going through the same terminal, but do I have to go through customs or security in paris? is that enough time? thanks!

     

    Since you are not entering the Schengen Area and both flights are on Air France/Delta you should not have to go through passport control in Paris. You will likely have to go through Security. You should have enough time.
