They can put the watch wherever they want. Watches are not safety relevant items (like laptop batteries) which can not be put into checked luggage. Your parents may have to declare the watch at customs and may have to pay duty or taxes on it. But that's completely independent of what luggage they are stowed in. If it needs to be declared, custom will most ...

You can always ask. They may say yes, they may say no. It depends on availability, fare class, your status with the airline, whether you have checked luggage (or not), mood of the agent, and phase of the moon.

If this watch is of any value then I would strongly recommend to put in in the carry-on luggage, to make sure it is not (1) stolen or (2) broken when the checked-in luggage is handled on the airport.

Johannesburg's main airport is 'ORT', O.R. Tambo International Airport. The IATA code for ORT is JNB. Jo'burg's secondary airport is Lanseria. Apparently, it's calling itself 'international', but I'm not quite sure there are actually international flights coming or going here. It is used by two budget carriers, though. Between the two, there is no real ...

Coming off the planes you come in the same halls as those going to the planes use. All of the airside that is 'non Schengen' is connected, if by a long(ish) walkway. That means that the first to arrive can go to the gate used by the second to arrive and meet there. Although at most of the airside space is open, there might be some parts of the airport still ...

There is no train station at Tegel airport. You best shot is to take the TXL Jet Express bus http://www.berlin-airport.de/en/travellers-txl/to-and-from/buses-and-trains/local-public-transport/ to the central station (Hauptbahnhof). There are plenty of train connections to Halle. Every two hours there is a non stop high speed train that does the trip in a ...

It did sound a bit crazy at first, but with a bit of luck, it should be doable, at least if you do have a driver on hand and your incoming flight is not delayed. Rotterdam airport is tiny, no time lost walking to the baggage claim area and exit or anything, you can literally be in front of the terminal building in 5 min. At Schiphol, EasyJet flights depart ...

There doesn't seem to be a comprehensive list of airport strikes, because: There isn't a centralized union for airport employees in Europe Different parts of the airport can go on strike: baggage handlers, security, pilots, traffic controllers, taxi drivers, cleaning personnel, etc The level of disruption is highly variable: not every strike causes a full ...

Because you're arriving from outside the Schengen area and going to a destination outside the Schengen area, yes, there will be a separate way for transit passengers. This is specifically so they can reach their outbound flights without passing through passport control. If you are authorized, that is, if you have or do not need a visa to enter Germany, and ...

I believe that since the central security changes last year, Willeke's answer is most likely incorrect for you (although as I've not been on an inbound flight from an "insecure" country since June 2015, when this all changed, I am happy to be corrected by someone with first-hand experience). Schiphol airport describes the changes in detail, but in summary: ...

It should not be an issue, but maybe you should bring some other form of identification along with you, such as a driver license (or indeed a few credit cards, checkbook, etc..), but something with your photo on it is best I guess. Or just contact the airline, I'm sure you're not the first one.

It is probably not possible for you to get an earlier flight unless someone invents a time machine. However, on some classes of tickets, Qatar Airways will pay for a hotel room and meals for you in this circumstance, and in that case you may be allowed to clear immigration and go to the hotel without a transit visa. Holders of a prearranged Stopover ...

Immigration happens in Munich (i.e. where you are first arriving in the Schengen area). Two hours should be enough time to pass through immigration and change planes. If both of your flights are on one booking in fact Lufthansa will get you on a later flight to Dusseldorf in case of delays and deems that time enough since they were willing to sell you this ...

My wife has done this particular one several times. And you will be going through passport control in Kyiv at arrival from London. But if you prefer you can look at the site of Borispyl's airport site: If you arrive at Boryspil airport by international flight and proceed to the domestic departure you don’t have to claim your baggage. After you ...

Grand Central is a smaller local field used mostly for general aviation movements it is north East of Johannesburg, South West of Pretoria located in ...

Unless you specially request it, you will not be able to retrieve your bags at Narita, since they will be checked through to Bangkok and transferred directly to the next plane. You will thus need to bring everything you need with you as carry-on luggage. However! There is an option to request at check-in that they "short-check" your bags to Narita only. ...

If you arrive at Terminal 1 on a through ticket, or have checked your luggage to final destination, or are travelling with hand luggage only, you should be able to do an airside transfer from terminal 1. Terminal 5 is only for security checks for departing passengers and after passing security, all airside facilities actually exist at Terminal 3, including ...

Taxation and hand luggage rules are completely unrelated to each other. You should be able to take your laptop as cabin luggage, either in your bag - for the cheapest airlines - or next to your bag - for legacy airlines, which probably includes most transatlantic flights. The latter is what's usually called "personal item". But taking the laptop as a ...

According to the information, obtained from National airport Minsk border guard service: Those passengers, who travel in transit through Minsk, do not need the Belarusian transit visa, if the following conditions are fulfilled: passengers have a valid passport and ...

If parking offsite is still too pricey for long term trip, you might want to try renting a car one-way and doing it to and from the airport. I did this on a recent trip flying out of another region and it saved me a ton of money. If you don't like that idea then there are some other good suggestions for ways to save money on parking on this O'Hare parking ...
