Many of the major airlines do have self-service checkin machines at the airport. I know KLM, allows printing forgotten or failed prints. If your airlines does not have these self service machines, and you are not yet at the airport, try going to a print or copyshop. Most airports these days have these shops, but sometimes they can have quite some waiting ...

I fly Air Canada as my primary airline. It is worth checking in online even if you don't have a printer available. There are no negative consequences compared to not checking in at all. You can line up to see someone and hand off your baggage, and they'll "reprint" your boarding pass, or you can use the kiosks (I have never seen a lineup for AC kiosks, ...

I believe that the room you got is specifically a service of Turkish to encourage you to connect through Istanbul. There is a general question on this at Does a layover of more than 6 hrs entitle me to accomodation by the airlines?. The answers there agree that in general, airlines don't give you free hotel rooms just because you have a layover. That said, ...

In general when you book your flights all as one booking, your bags will be checked through all the way. There are a few exceptions: in some places you need to interact with your bags as part of clearing customs into an area before catching a connecting flight.

Definitely talk to their customer relations people. While I've never had any reason to talk to their customer service, this is the kind of thing that their customer service employees are paid to handle.

You can reprint it at the airport, no problem. If no self-service station is available, the regular check-in desk personnel will reprint it for you. Some airlines in some locations allow using "mobile" boarding pass through their smartphone app, if this is the case for your airline and airport - then you don't even need to reprint anything at all.

I don't think so. The airline charges you because sometimes they cannot sell the empty seats that you "reserved". You could try to see the costs of canceling and buying new tickets, but you're really in an ethical grey area here. Other options would be calling the airline and asking them if you can just change your flight. The ticketing technique ...

Unlike the US, Germany does not require passengers in transit to pick up their bags and walk them through customs as a matter of policy. So it's down to airline policy and the details of your booking. Air Canada, Lufthansa, and Turkish Airline are all large modern carriers and part of the same alliance. The latter two are also listed as codeshare and ...

While it varies from airline to airline, certainly booking through the airline, or a reputable travel agent helps. As a travel coach, if the prices are the same I always send my clients through the airline, because if something goes wrong with the reservation, or in the booking process the airline is much more likely to help rather than route you through ...
