Hi,
I arrive at BOSTON from Dubai(through Emirates) and have a connecting flight to Pittsburgh.
Do my checked in bags need to be re-checked in at Boston?
Yes, you have to claim your bags to take them through US Customs, then re-check them for your flight to Boston.
Sorry, rather in Boston for your flight to Pittsburgh.
I have a 8.5 hr layover in Boston before my flight to the UK. Are there lockers where luggage can be stored? I don't want to drag my luggage all over Boston in a cab.
I am a senior citizen accompanied with my spouse. Do I get a baggage trolley on arrival at Terminal E. Do I have to pay for it? If yes, then - How much?
They should be available for free in the International Baggage Claim.
Thanks, but I am told that the facility is chargeable.
Hi, I am arriving alone at Logan through Emirates with an infant and a 4 year old. Is it possible for my husband to meet us at the baggage arrival so he can help me with the suitcases and I can carry the pram?
No, that is not possible. Visitors are not allowed in the International baggage claim.
I am a first time international flyer,also travelling alone.I will fly from India to Boston via dubai (emirates) and Boston to detroit (jet blue)..all in one ticket/booking. I get only 2 hours for the next detroit flight Is that enough for customs clearance and check in?please help.I am travelling on April 1.I ll have 2 checked in luggage. Pls explain the procedure
I am arriving on Jet Blue (terminal C) and transferring to British Airways (terminal E) on March 31. I know that I will have to collect my bags in terminal C and make my way to terminal E to check in with BA. However, due to recent cancer surgery I am unable to lift my bags. I have asked both Jet Blue and British Airways for assistance, and both airlines have said they are unable to help me. I'm beginning to think I might have to offer a huge tip to a random stranger to help me get my bags from terminal C to E. Is there anything else you could recommend?
One clarification--these are two separate reservations, not on the same ticket.
I am arriving at 4:25 pm with Southwest (DFW - BWI - BOS) and connecting to TAP Portugal for Lisbon at 6:20 pm. I need to recheck my luggage. Is this doable?
That's barely possible if the Southwest flight is on-time and you hurry over to Terminal E to re-check your bags. Also, be aware that your Southwest flight will depart from Dallas Love Field, not DFW.
I have a connecting flight to Boston going to Qatar from Charlotte. Is 1:45 minutes enough time for me to transfer from JetBlue terminal to Qatar terminal? Also will I still need to check in when I arrive in Boston and not needed since this is a connecting flight not 2 separate tickets? Thank you in advance.
You should be checked in for both flights in Charlotte. All you should have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Hi, we're coming in on a flight from Guadeloupe with no checked bags on a Thursday at 1140am. We have a connecting flight at 155pm (so, 2h15m layover). Is that enough time to make it through customs and make our connecting flight?
Sorry, forgot to mention that we are flying Norwegian Air.
With no checked bags that's just enough time if the Norwegian flight is on-time.
My husband and I plan to travel to the Azores Islands in April. Our flight from Raleigh NC to Boston will be with JetBlue. Then we'll have a 10 hour layover before the international flight with another airline and tickets purchased separately. Will we have to claim our bags in Boston and have them checked again for the second flight? And if so, can we have them checked immediately for the international flight, so we can do a little sightseeing in Boston?
Yes, you will have to claim your bags in Boston and re-check them once the Azores Airlines check in desk opens that evening. You will have to take your bags with you if you want to leave the airport.
Thank you for such a quick response! I appreciate your assistance!
