Yes, this is a trend that has happened in the last few years for short-haul airline travel. Most of the cheapest flights include no allowance for checked baggage. Of course this doesn't mean that you can't take checked baggage, it just means you have to pay extra for it. With young children this might actually work to your advantage, assuming you can get ...
What is needed is an acceptable photo ID, e.g., a Mexico passport if you also have one of those. Your citizenship is not relevant on a domestic flight. From the official list, there are also other IDs you may already have.
Your citizenship status does not matter for domestic flights. All you need is a form of identification document that is accepted by the TSA. If you have one of those in hand, you can fly.
There's no special system for sub-1 hour travel. It's the same search algorithm, and the same rules. In that sense, use your usual favourites. However, there is a big difference: you may find that many online travel agents will be reluctant to issue a ticket at less than one hour to departure: it leaves them with little time to sort out any problems if the ...
One potential issue is that you might have to put your metallic friend through the X-ray scanner, and I'm not sure these are normally large enough to take a human-sized object. Security might also demand to open him up, to check for explosives etc. This would be especially true if he has a metallic casing that prevents the scanners from seeing inside.
When you go to book flights on the BA website, they are very clear about baggage. Unlike some airlines, they do make it very clear, and very easy to pick, as shown here: You can see the price of their "Hand Baggage Only" fare, the price with a checked bag, the price difference, all on one screen at the same time. Depending on the route, the exact cost ...
Easyjet are generally very strict on the number of items you carry on board. Unless you've gone the "Easyjet Plus" route (via the card or the slightly more expensive seats which provide many other features, including dedicated check-in and faster boarding), you're allowed only one item with you on board. That includes your laptop, a handbag, or anything ...
Get a note from your doctor. You can even take syringes on board if they are a medical necessity.
I tried to find this specific limitation on airline sites in India and I wasn't able to. If you are under the prescribed weight limit, I cannot foresee any problem with carrying 3 laptops in domestic flights.
Strictness seems to depend also on how crowded the plane is. I fly KLM a lot (yes, I know they're not a budget airline) and mostly they don't measure hand luggage - but once in a while, they do. Luckily, I always carry one or two items that in a pinch, are expendable (empty bottles for water, etc) so I can usually manage. Do try to determine whether or not ...
As far as I know, some airlines permit a one-letter spelling correction (e.g. see http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/india-based-airlines/1510058-name-spelt-wrong.html - "Under the IATA rules applicable to Air India, a single-letter transposition should not be a problem" - although I could not find an actual IATA reference). However, you should contact the ...
The best way is to use an inflatable protective packaging, like this: (source of image: a UK packaging company with whom I have no affiliation - googling for 'bottle postage inflatable' produces many alternatives). As an additional useful tip, just in case your bottle (somehow) or you get a leak, wrap the whole lot in a tough old plastic bag (to stop ...
