Flying with BA to MIA from LHR. I heard there is a new immigration process at the central terminal using facial recognition in Miami. Can you still use APC kiosks or is the new process quicker? Thx
Hi,
We arrive at MIA at 12:35am. Our transfer to the Port for our cruise will not be there until 10:30-11:00. We will buy a one day pass to Sky Club for last 5 hours (5am-10am) and will hang out inside the terminal until Sky Club opens at 5am. So our luggage will arrive at 12:35am with flight. We obviously cannot claim until after 10 because we would not be allowed back into the terminal and I am not hanging in baggage claim for 10 hours. Will the luggage just be held in a storage area until we pick up at 10 (just like if we had been bumped the luggage would be waiting for hours)? I heard there are lockers we can use after we pick up luggage but how do we get back into terminal?
You may be kicked out of the concourse overnight. If you do not claim it then yes, it will be held by your airline's bag office. You won't be allowed back into the terminal as you don't have a boarding pass leaving Miami that day, so you can't use the skyclub.

It is good.
I need help locating a lost religious artifact ay MIA. Is there a chaplain who can help me navigate lost and found?
Need a wheelchair at the curb
When you request wheelchair service from your airline, a wheelchair can be summoned to the curb when you arrive.
My WestJet flight from Toronto lands at 10:50am Saturday - we will need to clear customs and be to the cruise ship port by 3pm at the latest! Will we have enough time (based on the usual waits) to clear customs, grab our bags and be to the cruise port in early afternoon?? thx
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do after arriving in Miami is claim your bags and head to the port. You have plenty of time.
How much does is cost to check luggage? Pretty sure we can't fit everything we want to take in our carry-ons.
What airline? You say you are flying nonstop buffalo to Punta Cana and then you posted this in the Miami forum, implying you are stopping in Miami, which is the case?
We're flying Miami Air from Buffalo, non stop to Punta Cana. And back the same way.
You'll have to ask the tour operator you bought the package from. Miami Air is not a scheduled airline.
Please let is know the terminal normally BA 1528 arrives?
