Short answer: if both flights have the same flight number, you are probably staying on the same plane. If the flight number changes, you are connecting to a different aircraft. Alternate answer: if the airline told you what city you are changing in and told you what time you land and take off in that city, you are connecting to a different aircraft. In the ...

You have the moral advantage when fighting for the armrest. The person on the aisle or window has at least one uncontested armrest already. There's a slightly higher chance that the seat in front of you and/or behind you will be unoccupied. If in front, you don't have to worry about them putting their chair back. If behind, then you don't have to worry ...

The basic problem here is threefold: you're traveling at a very busy time of year (between Christmas and New Year), you're asking for a one-way flight (almost always proportionally much more expensive than a return), and the kicker, you're asking for a guaranteed connection, which is all flight search engines will ever return you; otherwise they can't sell ...

KLM is likely not tell you much in their reply, other than telling you to go online or call, as availability changes from minute to minute and what they show now is likely to be different when you email them back later. Your best bet is to log into your current booking and use the change the flight options. You will be able to bail out before any change is ...

No, most airlines would not allow you to check baggage to B in this circumstance. One exception... if B->C is domestic you might HAVE to take your luggage off at B to clear customs. (For example if you're talking about LHR-JFK-LAX you will get your luggage at JFK even if it's "checked" to LAX) In some circumstances, airlines might allow you to book a ...

You can certainly argue for some, both objective and subjective. for exiting in an emergency, aside from sitting in the exit row, aisle seats > middle seats > window seats for ease to escape for exiting the plane, it's faster than a window seat in the same row if you want to be 'that guy', on airlines like RyanAir where it's sit where you want seating, ...

Hopefully these will help you. Flying is by far the safest way to get around, so you should try to calm yourself and enjoy the experience! Airbus A320: Wifi - yes, above 10,000 ft. Power socket - No. CRJ 700: WiFi - No Power socket - No Q400: WiFi - No Power socket - No 737-900: WiFi - No Power socket - Yes (but its shared) For cell phones, ...

Most air travel websites do not look for a “connection” in the same way than mapping apps look for an itinerary on the road or train search engines look for train connections. They look for a connection that can be priced and booked (either directly or through a third party or travel agent). This adds a lot of complexity and many non-trivial constraints that ...

There is a lot about this here. In summary, onboard telephones are of a design/spec/performance that is compatible with avionics, whereas some of the portable electronic equipment owned by the general public may not be as safe. Some passengers do appreciate communications contact while in the air so some airlines/aircraft cater to their wishes by ...

The only advantage I can think of is the opportunity to have two neighbors to talk to. This can also be a disadvantage if you're particularly anti-social, or you end up with bad neighbors. Which I guess goes to show why this question really is "Primarily Opinion Based."

I believe if I book online and travelling to another Schengen country, I would not need to show ID and only the boarding ticket? That depends on the airline's policy (and to some degree, the gate agent's knowledge of that policy). The EU no longer requires that airlines check for their passengers' identification so long as they do not check in luggage. ...

In Spain, you are required to carry your ID at all times: http://www.rondatoday.com/carrying-id-when-living-in-spain/ So I would advise not to travel to Spain without an official ID document.
