@chx has already mentioned Skypicker (now Kiwi.com) but a bit more powerful I find azair which has very powerful search options (see the advanced options), including choice of return and departure day, length of stay, period within which the trip should happen and a range of departure and arrival airports, up to the option "Take me anywhere" which is what ...

There are two parts to this question. First: Are drones allowed in Argentina? According to this site drones for hobby use were allowed in July 2015. You should check shortly before traveling, but I feel that the chances are good. Second: How much value can you bring into Argentina? It looks like adults can bring goods to a value of $US 300 and minors (...

As specified in my answers here and here, azair has very powerful search options (see the advanced options), including choice of return and departure day, length of stay, period within which the trip should happen and a range of departure and arrival airports, up to the option "Take me anywhere" which is what you are looking for. A similarly powerful ...

You need to have that printed boarding pass and a valid ID, e.g. a passport. That's all. Source: Personal experience. I fly Ryanair several times a year.

The chances of you being asked about a laptop is near to zero. I have travelled in and out of the US hundreds of times with two laptops, an iPad, two iPhones, iPod, headphones, disk drives, digital cameras... the only thing they have ever looked at was the drives looking for kiddy / animal / snuff porn. I've brought almost brand new electronics from my ...

From expertflyer, the minimum connecting time (MCT) for domestic to domestic flights is nominally 30 minutes. Air India flights have a range of MCT from 0:45 up to 2:00 depending on arrival and departure terminal and flight number. Indigo has an MCT of 1 hour. To see the typical delay, you could look up the flight numbers on flightstats. Taking a sample VNS-...

Here are some other tricks: flightaware is a great service to track flights. If you are not sure of the flight number, just enter the departure location and the arrival, and it will give you a listing of all flights, their times, and their current status. If the flight is airborne, you may also be able to track it. Another option is to enter a query into ...

Like many other low-cost air carriers, you cannot search flights or book tickets on NewLeaf through online flight search engines or booking sites. NewLeaf have this to say on their About Us page: Remember www.GoNewLeaf.ca because we’re not using any booking sites. To keep costs down, we sell directly to the customer and a small number of exclusive ...

It depends on a number of factors, but I'd say that the odds of you making this connection is very low. 85 minutes just isn't realistic for such a connection in most cases at SFO. UA862 from HKG hits SFO right on peak hour. In the hour before it lands there are at least 5 other flights arriving at the same terminal, and feeding into the same immigration ...

In addition to what's mentioned in the other answer, there is one extremely important thing the airline will do to help: if you miss the connecting flight due to late arrival and/or customs delays, they will put you on a later one. (Note this applies only because you have booked the flights on a single ticket.) SFO and IAD are both United Airlines hubs, ...

Generally, that is enough time; 95% you will make it easily. However, there could always be a snafu on the day, but even having 3 hours doesn't securely protect you against that. If you booked in on one ticket, the airline will help you if needed, like pulling you to the front of the line, driving you over through back-corridors, or have the connection ...

Short answer: No, that's not the case. I think what you've heard was a little mangled in the telling. There are indeed only three large airline Global Distribution Systems (GDS), which are the systems where both tariffs (prices) and reservations are created, stored and accessed. These are Travelport (Galileo/Apollo/Worldspan), Amadeus and Sabre, the last ...

No, it isn't and it was never. And they won't tell who uses what. Several airlines don't participate in any of those systems, but force all sales through their own system (example: Southwest). They have obviously some disadvantages from that, but also some advantages; they think it is the better solution. Google's ITA (http://matrix.itasoftware.com/) or ...

Expertflyer's Flight Alert function allows you to receive an alert if a given fare class becomes available on a specified flight. Expertflyer is a subscription service but does have a short free trial period. The Flight Alert form allows you to create a Flight Alerts for a particular flight. A Flight Alert will periodically check the class code ...

The EU recently published clarification regarding various EU262/2004 issues that were previously unclear. In your case the text of interest is: In accordance with Article 3(1)(a), passengers who missed a connection within the EU, or outside the EU with a flight coming from an airport situated in the territory of a Member State, should be entitled to ...

You can try. Sometimes you are successful. According to the relevant EU-regulation you may have a right to compensation, EUR600 in your case, unless The Airline is not obliged to provide cash compensation in the case of extraordinary circumstances which could not have been foreseen even if the airline took all reasonable precautions, according to ...

Transavia is a typical low-cost airlines. To my knowledge, it only sells point-to-point tickets and does not have any complicated fares so you should be safe. I did not find anything about return flights in their conditions of carriage either (all the usual stuff about using different legs or "coupons" in the right order and allowing airlines to charge you ...

The bad news is, they simply didn't want to take a photo with you, that's it. That's the common excuse flight attendants use when they don't want to take a photo with someone. To prove this, check this Facebook photo album, in one of the most famous cabin crew groups in Facebook (I don't own it). You will see many photos for Emirates cabin crew with ...

I can not say for sure since you do not provide info about the flights in question, but what I can infer suggests that they do need a visa, even a full Schengen visa and not only a transit visa since you will need to go landside, i.e. pass immigration twice. The direct flights from Djerba to Orly that I can find are offered by transavia and Tunisair and go ...

If you are from a country whose citizens can enter the UK with a national ID card in lieu of a passport, then yes, you can fly to the UK with your national ID card and no passport. Those countries are the countries of the EU and the EEA, plus Switzerland. https://www.gov.uk/uk-border-control/before-you-leave-for-the-uk. Note that the "ID card" here is a ...

Yes, you will be on the same plane (and in the same section, namely, economy.) As Berwyn mentioned, these are just different fare classes, both of which are economy fares. The K fare is a cheaper fare class than the W fare. What appears to have happened is that there were no more seats available in the cheaper K fare class when you booked the ticket for ...

To give you a short answer: As a Norwegian, you do need a passport to travel to Germany (irrelevant of age). Even if chances are very high that noone will check either your or your child's passport, foreign citizens need a passport or approved substitute (e.g. national id card from an EEA country) to enter or stay in Germany (AufenthG § 3 Passpflicht).

I've been in Munich 4 times, if you have a connecting flight then you don't pass immigration, still the time is very thigh, considering you need to get out of a plane full of people and run to another gate, it may be possible but I would check with the airlines if I were you.


-2

Munich has an international area, so you should be able to stay there and do the immigration service check in Paris (provided both legs of the flight are on the same ticket).

Original Poster posting the experience this time. The airline paid for the transfer. You have to ask for it. I arrived at the SHA airport terminal 1. Took the free bus shuttle to T2, took 15 mins. (Shuttle to PVG only runs from T2) Went to the China Eastern Airlines Check In Desk. Asked for a bus pass to PVG airport. They gave me one after checking my ...

In 1960, a round-trip from New York to London cost $350, according to a Pan Am advertisement. The same trip today, booked out-of-season, in economy class, with a layover and sufficiently in advance costs around $550, an increase of 60%. The official inflation rate was around 800% over the same time period, so it seems that the cheapest air fares have ...

Airline rules The airline rules are a bit ambiguous, according to Customer Service at SAS. Infants need to have a passport, but you will most likely not have to show it. But if they ask for it, then you need to be able to show some form of identification, a passport, a birth certificate or something else, if there exist alternatives. So, according to ...

There are various articles and threads about certain airports which have good advice regarding the likelihood of getting a good view from certain sides of an aircraft given origin, destination and prevailing winds, e.g. Daily Mail - various Bora Bora Dubai JFK Paris Hong Kong Seattle Also, some aircraft air equipped with tail cams and belly cams and you ...

Adding to the answer of @chx (+1), I have traveled within Europe as recently as January 2016 with 2-3 external hard drives (and some other electronics) in my carry-on and while it did win me a selection for the explosives test, there was no problem whatsoever and security staff was very chill about it.

A lot of threads on both Tripadvisor and Flyertalk confirms there is no problem. Even a less than a year old thread on 10-12 hard drives have lots of reports of no problems. Photographer here who often does similar/the same: you're totally fine. I have had TSA ask me to power up my laptop and tablet but never a portable HD I've traveled with 3-...

As pointed out by @Gagravarr in comments, take a look to posts on LoyaltyLobby in the category United Airlines Milage Plus. These sales happened almost monthly (though many of those targeted) recently, but this being a volatile marketing instrument, you should not completely rely on another such sale coming up. The sale you refer to apparantly was this ...

From my search it seems you are flying KL1050 (KLM CityHopper) from Bristol to Amsterdam; then KL0835 (Amsterdam to Changi), and then SQ215 (Changi - Perth). This is a single ticket; so your baggage should be checked all the way through from Bristol; and you should be picking up your bags in Perth. At the check-in desk/kiosk - you should get 3 boarding ...

Transiting at Orly will not require leaving the Transit area IF you do not need to pick up baggage AND are not switching terminals (Ouest to Sud, or vice-versa). If you do any of these, you will require a short-stay Schengen visa (type C). Otherwise, you will only Need it if your nationality requires an Airport Transit visa (type A)

Yes, you can take them in your checked in luggage. As a general rule you can even take sharp knives in checked in luggage. The only precaution that airport security (like the TSA for the USA) asks is that the sharp edges are packaged in such a way that staff can not cut their hands on them if they decide to hand-check the case. If you bring the items in ...

Yes, assuming they issue you the Known Traveler Number (KTN) before you fly, you can add it to your reservation. As long as it's at least 72 hours (3 days) before the time of your flight, you can add the KTN to your reservation via Delta's website. After that, you'll need to call or visit an agent at the check-in desk. To do it on Delta's website, go to the ...

As indicated above, They want to know all places of residence for the last 5 years to do a background check. Personal experience: For a number of reasons I lived in 6 places during last 5 years, and I just got approved.


6

The probable reason why you are asked if you lived at your current residence for 5 years is to run an approriate background check. If you answer "no", you will be asked for all your residences you've lived at for the past 5 years. Part of the TSA Precheck program application is a background check: ... approved travelers are issued a Known Traveler ...


15

TSA pre-check will be indicated (or not) on each boarding pass for your journey. Providing you are travelling through an approved airport on an approved airline, you should receive pre-check on all segments of your journey.


2

From an airport security standpoint I think the helmet should cause no problems in your carry-on. The TSA prohibited item search tool does not mention bicycle helmets. It does however mention all other types of helmets including motorcycle helmets, which are considerably tougher than bicycle helmets and can be used as an offensive weapon. Interestingly ...

Doing so seems impossible before check-in but is no hassle at (online-) check-in. So I did call up website support and customer service of Lufthansa and Miles & More. Staff was not knowledgeable on my request and they even wrongly told me there was no chance to change the loyalty program selected during booking at all (but the same employee did take out ...

If your child leaves after 45 days they shouldn't need an authorization, it's on that page you reference.

You should seek the advice of your doctor; like others I also believe you are actually describing the symptoms of an anxiety attack and trying to treat it as motion sickness may not help. Consult a doctor and be frank about your issues as anxiety attacks can have severe consequences. A colleague starts to hyperventilate when she gets on a plane (no matter ...

It depends on which Airline you use, like Qatar Airways ask you in advance to get an official permission from the card owner in case he is not flying with you, other airlines mostly in EU countries doesn't ask. so let us know which airline you are willing to use.

I have done this many times with a standard roll-away suitcase. I see no reason that a backpack would be different. I have always joked that if anyone hassles me, I will wear the helmet, and say I have fear of flying.

Actually, there is a risk, albeit very low, that you could get in trouble. First, you do have to switch your laptop on upon request, at least in some countries: The government guidelines say passengers carrying devices which they cannot switch on "face not being allowed to bring the device onto the aircraft". Passengers would then have to choose between ...

That's aiming more at preventing the import of things like fake-branded or illegally copied goods to be sold in SA, for example a box full of ripped-off DVDs or articles of clothing with trademarked branding (like the Nike swoosh) which aren't made or sold by the real manufacturer. The customs official is not going to have you power up your laptop and ...

Filipino citzens need to get an airport transit visa in advance to transit in Paris. There are exemptions for people with valid visas from a few other countries (like the US or Canada) and for seamen (but possibly only when joining a ship in a French harbour) that might apply in some cases but generally speaking a visa is required.

I've done this...mostly. At the last minute, I thought about a big bag of unidentified powder, and stuffed the whole bag in a smaller empty protein powder container. It didn't even matter that it was a different powder from the one I was taking (which had a much larger canister) - the packaging let it go through without difficulty. Stories I've head say ...
