    This is my first time flying. I have a layover in Fort Lauderdale from Laguardia. When arriving in Fort Lauderdale, will I go through security a second time?

     

    What airline are you flying? Were your tickets purchased together or separately? I can't answer your question without this info.

     

    Spirit, tickets were purchased with an all inclusive resort deal.

    Can I keep my wallet in my pocket while going through the x-ray? I've heard many different things ranging from keep it in your carry-on to put it in the tray that moves through the x-ray I'm not sure what to do.

     

    You cannot take it through the body scanners. You need to put it in something to put it through the baggage x-ray. For security reasons, I put mine either in my carry on bag/briefcase or in the pocket of my coat to put it through the X ray, rather than putting it loose in one of the trays.

    X-ray, yes, as long as there's absolutely nothing metal in it. Body scanner - no, you have to take it out. I suggest putting it in your carry on.

     

    Does each person have to go through the body scanner?

     

    If they are using the body scanner, You either go through the body scanner or request a personal screening which is done by hand and with the metal detector wand.

    My flight to Jamaica is at 6:30 AM I'm really nervous that I might miss it so I want to take the railroad to Jamaica station then taxi to LaGuardia do you think that taxis and trains will still be available at 12 PM to 3 AM?

     

    Taxis run all night in NYC but you might have to call one if your in Queens at that time. For the train, you would have to check the schedule of the exact train you're looking to take.

    I arrive Delta C-18 afternoon, She arrives United A-2. Where can we meet? Baggage shared carousel area or?

     

    Those are in different terminals. You will arrive in Terminal C and she will arrive in Terminal B. Whoever arrives earlier can take a shuttle bus on the curbside to the arrival area of the person who arrives later.

    I am arriving via Air Canada from Montreal mid morning and meeting a friend who is arriving via Air Canada from Toronto shortly after approximately 30-45 minutes later. Both with carry on luggage. Any suggestions where we can meet would be appreciated. Not sure as to which terminals we will be arriving at. Thank you.

    I am going to be flying Delta 5133 from YHZ-LGA for a 21/2 hour layover then catching Delta 1485 to go to MCO, do I have to pick my luggage up and go through security again or do they automatically transfer my luggage to delta 1485

     

    Delta should automatically transfer your luggage. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Halifax. All you have to do in LGA is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will not have to go through security.

     

    Thank you for the information:)

    So hard to get the accessible vehicles to any of the NY airports, they are just not available or closed. Call 2129207287 I used them so far always able to send a vehicle.
