As you've met them on the Internet, it should be fine to just give them the booking/ticket through the net. It's not normally necessary to have a paper ticket to fly these days (I can't think of when I last did). You just either check in online and print/have a phone bording pass, or show up to the check in desk and give them your identity documents (and ...

I just ordered tickets to the states with this site, Ticket2Travel Me and my girlfriend thought about going to Cuba aswell. So i know for sure you can find flights with this search engine :)

Don't bother taking your car to the US. It will cost you shipping and insurance. You'll have to pay an import tax, and certification fees, get the title properly notarized; get the car approved and inspected to finally get the license plates - that's if the car is allowed in the country in the first place. You'll have to get it insured (which will be ...

BA are good at rebooking especially from North America. If you need to travel today I would examine the alternatives, find some combination of flights you'd be happy with (without regard for the price) and then telephone BA with your preferences in hand. They should accommodate you for free, but you will waive your right to compensation if you agree to a ...

Yes, this case is covered under EU passenger rights, as British Airways is based in the EU: Secondly, you also have rights in case things go wrong. This concerns delays, cancellations and overbooking that prevent you from boarding and applies if you are: departing from any airport situated in the EU, or arriving in the EU with an EU carrier or ...

You may of course purchase an extra seat for luggage. This is common in a few situations when one cannot be separated from large cargo, the most obvious one being for transportation of musical instruments that are too fragile to go in the hold and too large to go in the cabin as hand luggage. You cannot keep your laptop on the seat during take off or ...

Outside of an emergency evacuation or similarly dire situation, I cannot think of any reason why a civil authority would ban a person from purchasing multiple seats. After all, it is not uncommon for people to purchase an additional seat to carry items like musical instruments or pets, or because they do not fit into a single seat. In consideration of this, ...

I will give you some practical reasons: Book now, pay later - this option is universally available at agents; very rarely available at the website. I use this all the time when I need to show a reservation (for example, as part of visa requirements) but do not want to commit to buying a ticket. Corporate accounts - a majority of agent's business is ...

The Internet was a game changer in many businesses and the travel agency world is no exception. Nowadays people can easily (this is arguable) find the cheapest price in a quick search; therefore, agencies need to present the best price to be able to sell since that's a key factor. How can they do this? (These are assumptions based on general commercial ...

Private Aircraft Others have answered for the commercial and chartered sectors, which is increasingly being strangled due to regulation. This answer will focus on the private sector. Where are these announced? The short answer is they are not announced, at least publicly like on a web site. Any kind of advertising or public communication kicks them ...

Not at all. Flying within the US has no border control (makes sense, as you are just flying within the same country). All you need is a TSA approved identification document. Immediately after 9/11 I was flying from San Diego to Dallas, and I was carrying only my Texas driver's license (and no passport). I was approached by FBI, airport police and INS ...

Corporate/Business Aircraft For corporate aircraft, this is a common occurrence and there have indeed been attempts to utilise these legs. A quick search on Google for empty legs turns up plenty of results. I came across two companies called flyvictor and returnjet that offered a bunch of flights from all spots in Europe. Another similar possibility is ...

Basic action Like with all cases where you need to keep someone sharp, it mostly depend on the person. There will not be an 'one fits all' solution. My approach with coach and car drivers is always based on their reactions, as some indicate they want you to chat constantly, others that you just talk every now and again and others are so non-responsive that ...

Bubble wrap it and on top of the bubble wrap cello tap the bottle and keep them between the cloths somewhere middle of the bag.I usually follow this and it never leaks or break.Hope this helps you too.

I have never tried it for an other airport, but Schiphol, the Amsterdam Airport, publishes all arrivals, as well as all departure, on the text service of the Dutch public television. A quick search shows that London Heathrow also has a list of arrivals. Which makes me think that you might be able to find that information for almost all airports, if maybe not ...

I think you should call the air port where you are, and ask if they can tell you if there is any way for them to see if the plane that you are looking for has landed or delayed!

I have the same issue when I travel as my name is extremely long as well. I've had them cut my name off, combine the names into one, and do all sorts of other things. But I have never had problems. I am sure the name is accurately documented somewhere in the system, it's just a space issue on any printed confirmation.

I believe that using a website like flightstats (http://www.flightstats.com/go/Home/home.do) will do the job. You can search by route, flight or airport. If that does not work, checking the arrival airport's website normally lists all arrivals on the date of your choice as well as where they arrive from and what airline. That would probably do the trick if ...

Given you've said that this is a connecting flight I'm presuming that both flights are on the same ticket. If you miss the connecting flight, even if it's due to delays in customs and immigration, then the airline will change you to a later flight at no cost. Simply go to the customer service desk at the connecting airport and they will look after you. If ...

Rome2Rio shows three alternatives to flying: bus, train, and car. The bus is a Greyhound service that takes 4h43. It departs from Houston city though so you'll have to find a way to get to the bus terminal. The train is an Amtrak service that takes 5h06. It too departs from Houston city and will require you to find a way to get to the train station. Finally ...

The flights between Brussels and Barcelona are intra-Schengen flights, so you will not go through passport check (as already mentioned in the comments). You will enter the Schengen zone only once (in Brussel) so your single-entry visa is enough for your trip. In Brussels you can get out of the airport, I see no problem.

The vast major of airlines do not allow this, but rather require you to have your ticket changed in such a case. They will cancel your ticket in case you don't show up for your first flight. See the following threads for similar answers and more details: Book connecting flight, but only board at second airport? Is it okay to board only the second flight ...

So, if I could pilot and rent/have a water plane, are there facilities in harbours to let me park? Yes, lots of them in fact. For what you're talking about the term is 'moor', and there are three kinds of moorings in the vernacular: dock, ramp, and beach. Docking is the most common, beach is the simplest but are hard to find. Landings with a ramp allow ...

According to the SeatGuru page on Oman Air (you can click on the plane model to see the details), there are power outlets on some of the planes, notably their A330s, while the other models don't have power outlets. A330-200: There is regular AC power onboard: one power port per First and Business Class seat and one shared between two seats within ...

Both Oman Air Flight 124 from Munich to Muscat and Flight 815 from Muscat to Bangkok usually operate with an Airbus A330-200, which has power plugs in all classes (one per seat in First/Biz, one per two seats in Economy). Beware that aircraft types are never guaranteed, so you may end up on another plane with no notice. However, Oman Air's only other ...

Todd from Flightfox here. I'd like to explain our major recent improvements, particularly the details of our price guarantees, to answer the original question. It's true that many things have changed with our format, policies, guarantees, processes, etc., over the past couple of years. These changes come from constantly trying to improve things for ...

(1) Return tickets are usually cheaper than singles. At worse you can throw away the return component. You will have to telephone if you want the return sector to be more than on year away from the booking date, simply because the flights are not loaded in the system yet. Most airlines will allow this though. Presumably you will want to visit your home at ...


3

In your case, because it's already June and your stay will be shorter than a year, buying a return ticket might still (barely) be possible but note that airlines everywhere have a one-year booking horizon and/or a limit of one year between departure and return so that it's simply impossible to present a return ticket for a visa lasting one year or more. So, ...

I cannot answer your question with direct experience of the exact travel plan you have but let me put forward some information anyway. Hopefully someone can provide you a more experienced answer. Ukraine International Airlines (company code is "PS") do have appropriate contracts with Qatar Airways and Emirates to check your baggage through on such flights. ...

I just wanted to give some short feedback on what I have done: I wrapped my USB power bank in a plastic bag Separated cables by wrapping all into another plastic bag Put both plastic bags inside my rucksack Camera as it is including its battery. Upon TSA security check I put those bags and camera into the containers. Everything was fine - no one ...

Alright here is my experience and what I think of how customers are treated on flightfox. I put my request in for a flight from from SYD - BRU (29/06/2015). I was without any say in it, given a guy as an 'expert' who read my request and probably just accepted it and slept on it. After 24 hours I get a message that he has started working on my flight and ...

It's already been explained in several comments but since it seems no other answer is forthcoming, I will repeat it here: There is no reason to expect any difficulties. Plan some time to cross the border and don't take anything that might create issues with customs like weapons, drugs, large quantities of alcohol, etc. (but those could be equally ...

I have two very tall sons - 6'4", 270 lbs and 6'6", 240 lbs. The taller one has legroom issues, but fits snugly in the seats. The 6'4" 270 lb guy has more trouble. He can fit "in" the seat with his hips, but his very wide shoulders hang over into the seats on either side of him. He tries to sit by the window, as you can kind of sit a little diagonal, ...

Don't worry! Full middle names are never required on flight tickets, and even the initials are usually not needed. As long as the rest of the name and the initials match the passport, she will be fine.

No. A U.S. visa is not an acceptable ID for TSA. (And in general visas do not serve as IDs; they are to be used with a passport which is the ID.) Foreign national IDs are also not acceptable IDs.

You wonder if you can use the aisle for praying in a British plane, just because you assume it's unlikely there will be many muslims on the plane. However it's reasonable to expect that somewhere there are some flights where the greater part of the people will be muslims. In that case, there just isn't room for everyone to do their prayers. You might ask to ...

There's one airside paid lounge in Terminal 1, the “Convives de Marque” Lounge. If you have a priority pass, you can get access to the lounge. If you fly a lot with airlines where you don't have status / no such thing as status, then getting a Priority Pass can be a good idea. You can often find trials and discounts for new signups, and there are various ...

There is one lounge only (Convives de marque, available in departures and in arrivals), the access can bought directly at the lounge for a fee of (24.000 Dhs). Another way to buy the access can is from prioritypass for $27 USD (single visit fee will be deducted from your standard membership balance which will cost you $99). You also can make a reservation ...

Just want to share a few general tips: Get any idea about how much it will cost to put everything on single ticket: Most travel websites supports multi city search. Just put down your itinerary and then search. Write down or print out how much it costs, and which airlines operates between cities. Next, breaking up the itinerary into two roundtrips. A -> B ...

Yes. If you stand up while the seat belt sign is on you will receive a sharp rebuke! If you remain in the aisle in the way of people moving about, you may also be asked to move out of the way or to sit down. However, many people do stand up during the flight and as long as you don't get in the way, it should not be a problem. You may be able to find a quiet ...

Generally speaking, "yes". A BA aircraft is registered in the UK and therefore is covered by the UK laws. Under the UK law it's an offence not to obey the order of the flight crew while on the aircraft. Specifically, this is covered by the Air navigation order 2009, section 142(c): A person must not while in an aircraft ... (c) intentionally interfere ...

Yes, if aircraft safety or your personal safety requires it, you will be asked to sit down and close your safety belt. That is true for all aircraft and any time of the year. Maybe they will allow you a bit more leeway because they understand that prayer is important for you, but if you do not belt in when it is dangerous, they endanger all passengers, ...

What you are trying to do is "hidden city ticketing" and it's forbidden by AA's contract of carriage, so I would not expect them to make it easy for you to accomplish this. I would think that if you try to split the itinerary, they will compute the total fare for one-way trips EWR-PHL and PHL-PIT and then charge you for the difference above what you have ...


2

No. There is no right (for you as a passenger) to have carry-on luggage; and as safety of the aircraft is paramount, having no place to stow luggage in the cabin is a risk - as it can turn any item into a projectile if there were turbulence. So the airline is well within their right to stow the luggage in the cargo hold. Further, many times if this is the ...


2

First, the travel agent is your point of contact here. Any changes to the booking need to be negotiated with the agent; believe it or not, the airline has no control over your booking at this stage. This is either very good, because the agent takes care of the leg work, in which case you should certainly patronize his or her services in the future. ...


3

There is no risk (or negligible risk) of being offloaded. There is a risk your bag will have to be stowed or put far away from you on the aircraft, which many people find irritating. I think most people get impatient, nervous or anxious when they see the flight is close to boarding—and simply do not want to sit any more. Either they join a queue or make a ...

I have traveled with Ryan air so many times (non EU citizen) and this is what i would answer. If you are not EU citizen, you have to stand in queue to get your passport checked, if not you will be denied boarding at the gates. Most ryan air flights are crowded during weekends, so if you board at the end of the queue, either you will have no free seats ...

In principle overbooking does not happen in ryanair and in most LCCs. There might be other reasons but one of them is to assure that you take your hand luggage with you. Ryanair charges extra for checked in luggage therefore almost everyone carries hand luggage. This used to be a problem because there is not enough space inside the cabin for everyone to put ...
