I'm arriving terminal 5 and need to move plenty of family luggage of about 12 box. Can I hire a cart to move the luggaes
Yes, you can bring the Rental Smarte Cartes on the airtrain between terminals.
Hi there, I am an Australian flying from Honolulu to Winnipeg via Vancouver (with checked baggage) and have 1 hour and 20 minutes to catch my connecting flight. Will this be enough time to go through customs? Will I have to re-check my bags? Thanks for your help
Yes, you will have to go through Canadian Immigration, claim your bags, go through customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. You have barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thanks for your response! It was booked as one flight through Air Canada (website), so surely if we miss the connecting flight they will put us on the next available one? Thanks again for the response
I am flying into FLL from PIT on a domestic flight with JetBlue arriving at 9:57AM and have a departing flight with Spirit at 10:44AM. I will only have carry on bags, do I need to go through any security from domestic to international or can I just run there?
You will have to go through security. This is a very difficult if not impossible connection, even without checked baggage.
I am looking for a flight from Rockford for 3 adults, 1 of them a senior (80) we need to see my son in the 2nd week in March before he leaves for the Middle east. what is the best days to fly and rates to Phoenix.
Just check the Allegiant website. The Rockford airport is never that crowded.
Hi, I'm picking someone up from the airport today. I will have my small dog with me, can I bring him inside?
Since you aren't traveling and won't have a container for the dog it technically probably isn't allowed, but since lots of animals go through airports while traveling, I really doubt anyone would notice or care.
We catch our flight in PIT @ 5:15am - our shuttle service at the hotel says they don't start until 4am and that the airport ticket counters are closed until then. Is this enough time to get 4 people thru without missing our flight?
Yes, they aren't lying to you. The counters and checkpoints don't open until 4 AM. there will be very few people at the airport that early. You'll be fine.
My daughter is flying from Dublin to Toronto to Chicago to Helena, MT. where will she go through customs? she has a long layover in Tornonto, but only 50 minutes in Chicago
She will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. In Chicago she just has to go from her arrival gate to her departure gate.
Wonderful! Thank you so much!!
Hi, We're flying from LHR arriving at 1640 and then departing to CUN at 1830. I'm concerned that we may not have enough time - 2 hours. We are flying w/AA and its all 1 ticket. Do we need to go through customs & Immigration?
Yes, you will go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security but you should not have to claim your baggage because you are on an International to International itinerary. You should have enough time.
Ok thank you. Ive a US passport but my wife does not, will that make a difference? Is there an option to fast track if in business?
You will have a shorter security line in business. If your wife has never transited or visited the US on ESTA she will have to wait in a separate line for first time ESTA users.
great, well actually she is on her first ESTA (3years) but this is not the first time she has entered the USA on this this ESTA.

I am flying into IAD from Raleigh on United and flying to Ireland on AerLingus with about a 75 minute layover. The ticket is booked as one ticket. Is that enough time to connect to the international flight? Flight arrives in IAD around 4pm and AerLingus flight departs around 5:20pm. Starting to worry we will miss connection. How difficult is it to transfer between terminals?
IAD only has one terminal. You just have to change concourses. You have plenty of time. The concourses are connected by the Mobile Lounges and AeroTrain.
i'll be flying from new delhi(del) to prague(prg) .my flight is a connecting one and it has a layover in amsterdam for 12 hours. will i need airport transit visa and can i leave airport premises of amsterdam?
You will need a Schengen tourist visa (or whatever appropriate visa you need for your visit to Prague), since Prague and Amsterdam are both in the Schengen area, you will go through Schengen passport control in Amsterdam.
