  • Connection International to Domestic two hours
    Oct 24, 2013
    Early next year I will be arriving on Lufthansa from Frankfurt and have an onward connection to Phoenix two hours later. Is the transit time sufficient? I will be arriving with a student visa, will this make a difference when clearing immigrations? Thanks for your help


    At IAD, all international arrivals are being transported to the International Arrivals Building at the west end of the main terminal for TSA clearance, where they need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag where indicated. (If both legs of your journey are bought on one ticket, or if your connecting airline is also a member of the Star alliance, your bags will be transferred automatically - if this does not apply, you need to take your bag after customs clearance & check it in with your connecting airline). If connecting to either A, B or C gates, take the Aero Train; if connecting to D gates (Midfield Concourse C/D) you need to take the Mobile Lounge shuttle at Main Terminal's lower level to gates D1-32. Your connecting time is sufficient.

  • Enough transfer time?
    Oct 22, 2013
    I'm planning to travel from Abu Dhabi via Etihad Airways on December 16, scheduled 4:40 PM arrival at IAD. I'd like to book a 6:05 departure via United. Is 85 minutes enough transfer time?


  • rechecking bags from another airline
    Oct 21, 2013
    I have a connecting flight in Houston -- arriving in on an UA flight and transfering onto a Westjet flight. I understand I need to claim my bags in Houston, where would I need to go to recheck my bags with Westjet?


    Westjet does not fly to IAH. Please double check your itinerary to find the carrier that is operating your flight.

    My daughter is flying with a 2 yr and she will be on frontier from Seattle to Denver to Branson mo has a 40 min layover. With a child can she get to the next gate on time? And does the child has to be in a car seat on the flight?


    Frontier uses Concourse A for both flights. On arrival, she should check the overhead screens for her connecting flight and gate number. Concourse A has gates A24 - A39 and A40 - A68 on either side of the center - plenty of time for transfer.

  • arrive cdg with dog
    Oct 14, 2013
    i am travelling air france from sfo to cdg with my dog in the hold. where do i pick up the dog when we arrive at cdg? can i let her out of crate before customs so she can pee? its such a long flight, i want to be sure i get to her right away. ty.


    1. You need to contact your airline as to where to pick up your pet - it will most likely on arrival have to go through quarantine inspection first. 2. While SFO has pet relief areas (now mandatory at US Airports) at T1 at Courtyard 1; at T2 at Couryard 3; at T3 at Courtyard 4 - CDG may not have them - at least they are not listed.


  • Want to meet relatives on a 5,5 hr layover
    Oct 10, 2013
    I'm flyimg Seattle to lax terminal 6. Leaving from Tom Bradley Int'l 5.5hrs later. Must I leave security


    Note that non-ticketed visitors have no permission to enter secured areas of the terminals. As there are plenty of pre-security restaurants & shops in the 'new' Tom Bradley (TBIT) terminal, (there is also a restaurant in the center of the parking garages, which the terminals surround). When getting off at T6, take the LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island in front of each terminal, under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', which runs every 12-15 mins, stopping next at T7, T8, T1 through T4 and on to Bradley.

    It doesn't matter if they answer or not, because they won't return your item. You have to find a courier company who will collect it, wrap it and deliver it. My $60 jacket cost $75 to return. Not impressed.

    Does the airport have electric carts to shuttle seniors between gates? Is there any other assistance that senior travelers could get, having in mind that they have short time for the transfer?
