First of all, it isn't something unusual to have a super frequent flyer on daily basis. During my years as a cabin crew member I remember a few passengers whom I saw a few times a month in an airline that operates 15,000 flights a months! Second, you are scanned prior to your departure, and that's what really counts. The random checks at arrivals are not ...

In most juristictions that operate with something approaching sanity, someone is liable for accidental damage in the following three cases: They caused the damage deliberately or with "blameworthy carelessness". They have entered into a contract where they explicitly accept to be responsible for the risk. The law contains an explicit exception for the ...

If these were domestic flights (flights where the start and finish are within the same country) then it's possible that they hardly stop anyone. Drug smuggling would be a non-issue because you're not crossing an international border. Security at the arrival end does not need to check that you're not a terrorist who might blow up the plane, because you've ...

It's enough time if all goes according to plan. However, you've got very little buffer if anything goes wrong, and going via another airport means the odds of something going wrong are multiplied. Personally, I would not risk it. Unfortunately your options are limited here. GoAir is a low-cost carrier and you've booked your connecting international ...

If the airline found the bag AND you provided a specific delivery address when you filed the lost bag report, then they are responsible for delivering the bag to you at that address. If the airline found the bag, but you did not specify a alternate delivery address (ie you were still traveling or such), then they are responsible for informing you (which ...

Frankly, the 'best' raw freely available interface is ITA Matrix. While you can't actually book flights on it, it allows you to specify any number of airpots, combinations, routing codes and more - it's really powerful. It then also breaks down the booking codes, so that you can in theory take those to a travel agent and they can match the route. Or, once ...

As for liability, everything depends on what jurisdiction you'll be able to work. If it will be the European (continental - based on Napoleonic Code) law, then you're liable for every damage you have caused, and the factor of 'recklessness' or 'guilt' is unimportant. So the question will arise, who have caused the damage to the laptop, which is not obvious. ...

I'd expect for the common use of drug dogs (outside of specific raids) to be exactly as you describe - noone would be blocked and searched until/unless the dogs sniff something and give a signal to the handlers.

You weren't stopped for the simple reason that you weren't doing anything unusual or suspicious. There are many people whose jobs require them to travel frequently so that is not unusual enough to cause suspicion. And, anyway, the airport police see literally thousands or tens of thousands of people every day. Unless you're 2.15m tall and have bright green ...

From a common sense point of view - #5 .... its an accident, deal with it. In the hands of a lawyer - #1, #3 & #6 .... the shotgun approach, sue them all and hope one settles rather than fight the case in court.

Wizz Air does not have a frequent flier programme but it does have a Wizz Discount Club which seems to be just what you need: an annual €29.99 gives you a €10 discount on ticket fares with the following conditions: Discount is available on all fares from €19.99. Discounts are not available for and excluding flights operated by Wizz Air Ukraine. Fares ...

Take a look at the website Kayak.com and use the "3 days before/after" to search. Note there is only one airline that flies between Eindhoven and Budapest. See the image. You can click the days to find the lowest price combination for trips originating from Eindhoven. Also try trips originating from Budapest to come the other direction... they may be ...

I live in Italy and I think you were never stopped because it was an internal flight. Again, you are not likely to be stopped at any airport in Europe that is part of the Schengen agreement. For instance, I have never been stopped at airports in Belgium and Holland even though I am a non-European. On the other hand, I have to go through normal aiport ...

You have enough time it hardly takes 15 to 20 minutes to go from T1C to T3 and the check-in counter closes only before 90 minutes and there is also a Shuttle transfer between T1C to T3 every 1/2 hour you just have to produce Boarding pass Onward Journey Ticket

If this is a domestic flight, then the laws of the country take precedence (i.e., everyone else's guesswork answers probably apply.) If this is an international flight, however, the Warsaw Convention covers this. According to Clauses 17 and 18 of the Warsaw Convention, the airline is liable for any injury (to people, clause 17) or damage (to property, ...

This has all the hallmarks of some jobsworth throwing his weight around. The existence of such a “regulation” is very unlikely if only because “through one of the four major airports” excludes the land crossing at Attari (Wagah). This form mentions that (though clearly is ancient!) but there are many more recent references to it also. Silence is hardly ...

Note - as Vince importantly pointed out, Les Arcs (gare == bourg-st-maurice) is perhaps the French ski station which is best-served by train! For the record, I just clicked here http://www.voyages-sncf.com and entered "Bruxelles" "Bourg Saint Maurice" There are a number of connections of about 7-8 hours, generally via Lyon. Or you could fly to Chambery ...

If you are flying from Canada into Seattle then almost surely you will clear the border at the Canadian airport as almost every Canadian airport (Vancouver YVR, Calgary YYC, Toronto YYZ -- Victoria YYJ being the only exception) that has a direct flight to SEA has a US pre-clearance facility. B1 visa is plenty to enter the USA, yes. If you cleared the ...

According to their site: Lost Baggage Passengers whose baggage is missing at reclaim must, on the same day and before leaving the arrival hall, have a Property Irregularity Report (PIR) prepared by applying to Station Lost and Found Offices with their Travel ticket, Baggage tag, Identity document (identity card, passport). The Property Irregularity ...
