  • Tipping for wheelchair assist?
    Jun 18, 2014
    0
    I have a twisted spinal cord that pinches my sciatic nerve. It causes me a lot of pain if I'm carrying thing across long distances. Also I am very new to flying (2 flights). On my second flight I was told I can ask for wheelchair assist. Some of the people were friendly others a little standoffish. I did not know anything about tipping them at all and did not give one. My last flight someone yelled at me for a bit to be ashamed for not tipping the gentleman that helped me, this is how I learned about tipping for the assist. I did further research and people say $10-$20 is the cost. I cannot afford this and felt really bad about not tipping anyone during my flights. I get flights for helping out with my husband's grandmother. I am no longer going to ask for wheelchair assist because I cannot afford to pay $10-$20 so I can be relieved of pain. As for the ones that helped me before, I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart and never meant to insult you by not giving a tip. I am really new to flying and only learned about it from a random person that clearly thought I was trying to be a snob and berated me for it.

     

  • London to DC to Albany

    Hi, I am in DC for a layover from London with Albany being my final destination, and I read that I have to re-check my bags, does this mean I will need to pay for my second bag twice and go through security twice? What does this entail exactly? Thanks!

     

    If your tickets were bought on a single reservation, no you will not have to pay again to re-check your bags. There is a re-check desk after you clear US customs that you will be able to drop them off at. Any time you enter the US from abroad you have to claim your baggage and go through US Customs, then re-check it if you're transferring to another flight, then you have to go through security.

    my son is travelling alone FROM CLT TO IAD AND THEN HAS TO CONNECT TO SAN. HE'LL BE ON UNITED EXPRESS 3800 AND CONNECTS TO UNITED 229 . I CAN'T FIND WHICH TERMINAL OR GATES OR CONCOURSE (?) TO HELP HIM. HE ONLY HAS 43 MINS TO MAKE THE CONNECTION. ANY HELP?

     

    1. United uses all Concourses A ,B,C,D,E with corresponding gates (i.e., B10) - United's Code is UA - for both United & United Express. There are no listings for United's flights 229 or 3800 today. 2. While Concourses A - C are connected via AeroTrain, Concourse D can only be reached from the A gates by shuttle bus, or from the C gates by a connector. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iad, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text to get an idea of the terminal layout & connections. 3. On arrival at IAD, your son should look at overhead screens to find his flight and gate number, then proceed accordingly.

    I will be arriving at IAD via united air at 11:11 am on 8/30 and will be getting a flight from All Nippon airways at 12:20 pm can I find out what terminal I will be flying out of to make a plan to find the gate?

     

    Considering you're probably already in the air, this probably won't be much help, but All Nippon uses Concourse B.

     

  • Customs Clearance of Pet Cat

    Hello! I exported a kitty to Qatar (from VA) last November. We're moving back in the next 90 days and are of course bringing our kitty with us. What happens during "customs clearance" at IAD and about how long does that process take? Thank you!

     

    Animals arriving on an international flight need to go through quarantine inspection. Unfortunately Washington Airport sites do not include animal shipping, or list e-mail address. You may want to try these numbers: IAD Information 703-572-2700; corporate office 703-417-8600. Travelers Aid International Desk 703-572-2536; or try Twitter @dulles_airport.

    Hi, I am flying UA4304 from Norfolk, VA to Washington and then UA1463 to LAX. I have a 1 and a hlaf hr layover. Is it enough time to catch this connecting flight? Thanks in advance

     

    It should be enough time. Your flight from Norfolk will arrive in Concourse A and your flight to LAX will depart from C or D. Take the Aerotrain or Mobile lounge between concourses.
