  • 32 minutes between flights? Will we make it?
    Dec 27, 2013
    United changed our flight times. We arrive from Newark at 12:04. Flight leaves IAH at 12:36 for Orange County. It looks like we will arrive and depart from the same terminal- C- although the departure gate has not been announced yet. I am a nervous wreck!! Will we make it?!


    by the way, we leave tomorrow!!


    Yes, both of your flights will likely be in C. If your first flight is on-time you'll have enough time.

    Dec 21, 2013
    Hi! I will arrive to EWR Terminal B with SAS and I have a connection AA flight to Miami from Terminsl A. I prseume I have to clear customs and immigration at EWR and rec-heck my luggage (even if it is checked in to my final destination)? Can I drop my luggage after customs at Terminal B? Merry Christmas from Stockholm


    If your bags are tagged through to Miami then you will be able to re-check them in Terminal B. Otherwise you will have to take them to Terminal A with you on the Airtrain.

    2"x4" Olympus Digital Voice Recorder, Black and silver in a black padded sleeve. Lost. Dec 11, 2013. REWARD. Some recordings are of people who have since passed away, and I would like to hear my loved ones voice again.


    1.

  • Travel during holiday
    Dec 16, 2013
    I have a domestic flight on the morning of Christmas eve. I am wondering if the security line will be long. Will I have enough time if I get to the airport an hour before my flight?


    An hour should be enough time, but if you're worried get there earlier. Christmas eve isn't really an exceptionally busy day.


  • Terminal D Check in
    Dec 16, 2013
    I am flying IAH to Dubai with Emirates from Terminal D. I have very restricted mobility. Emirates will provide wheelchair from Check In desk only. From limo drop off is it far to check in ? Are there valets available at drop off to take luggage ?


  • Immigration/customs transfer time
    Dec 16, 2013
    I'm a US citizen flying in from CAN on China Southern flight 327 on 12/17 and arrive at LAX at 6:10pm. I then have a flight on Southwest to DEN at 8:25pm. I'm hoping to just carry on my bag, is this enough time to make the transfer? Or how much time do I need to make the transfer?


    You will arrive at LAX at the Bradley International Terminal, where you normally need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags (if applicable), go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag. Carry-on bag only would certainly cut down on time. Your departure terminal is Terminal 1 (Southwest) - while the LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island in front of each terminal, under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', runs every 12-15 mins, your next stops will be T4 - T8, around the bend to T1 - 9 stops or 20 minutes - you would need to take a taxi in case you have to spend time re-checking your bags. In either case, you will need to go through security check at Terminal 1 before proceeding to your gate.


    You can't take a taxi between terminals. Honestly if you're rushed for time your best bet is to run from the TBIT to T1. It's about a third of a mile and you can probably run it in 5-10 minutes.


    So about how long does going through passport check and customs take?


    It depends on the time of day, but generally about half an hour.


    Dec 13, 2013
    I lost my Samsung Galaxy S3 phone on 12/11/13 in DFW Airport near C19, C20 or C21. Maybe in the bathroom near C19, or in the chairs near C20. Or maybe on my way out of the airport to the arrivals parking lot/DFW Valet near C21. I have been in touch with the lost and found, but no one has turned it in. Please, if you have seen it or have turned it in or know where I might find it or who else to contact, would you please help? It has all of my precious photos on it from the last 1 1/2 years.

  • Travelling with children
    Dec 10, 2013
    Hi My wife is arriving at IAH from Dubai with 2 kids (4yrs and 1 yr) She also has 6 checked in bags. is there any way i can arrange for some one to help her. she and my elder son can walk, and she cannot carry the younger once and get the bags by herself what would be the best way to get help


    There are baggage carts available for free in International baggage claim. If she cannot get the bags from the belt to the cart she will just have to ask someone to help her.


  • Parents who can't walk long distances need help
    Dec 9, 2013
    How do my parents request help getting from gate to gate at O'Hare? They are OK getting on and off the plane, but not walking distances.


    The only way is to request wheelchair service from their airline. However, depending on what airlines they are flying they may not have far to go though.
