I've changed this from a comment as it's longish and, while not strictly addressing the letter of the question, it does address the spirit, and adds some cautionary advice. The equivalent functionality to an insurance selling machine is often achieved nowadays when an online ticket is bought as part of the overall transaction, using wholly customer-machine ...

No. The only difference over a pure domestic itinerary at the first stage is that there will be a bit of extra time at the check in desk if (a) you have some weird through-check-in problem with a partner airline down route that day and (b) visa/passport checks. The other thing is that the "three hours required" thing is a bit of a myth. In some airports, ...

In general if you are traveling on one ticket, with both a domestic leg and an international leg, the international rules override the domestic rules. So when you check in, you are checking in for an "international" flight and the check in counter agents need to document your permission to enter (passport, visa, etc) the international destination. But the ...

It's very simple — since you won't be passing through immigration on your outbound leg (assuming an intra-Schengen flight), the first leg you are taking is not international. Same applies for other modes of transport - just because I take a flight to the US after taking the train to the airport doesn't mean it's necessarry to arrive to the train station 3 ...

It would seem that there at the time of writing, there is no luggage storage in Dubrovnik airport. Various sites on the web say that the only official luggage storage service in Dubrovnik is provided by the Main Bus station. Moreover there is no mention of luggage storage on the airport website. It would therefore Bus Croatia says (emphasis mine): ...

At Midway, walk to the CTA stop, then  outside through the bus lanes onto 59th St.All Uber options show up there, address is 4618 W 59th. Maybe 50 yards  farther than walking to the L.

Norwegian Air's web site has an explanation on connections. If you have a single ticket with a connection, ninety minutes is more than enough time for the physical transfer and, moreover, if you miss the connection because of bad weather or another delay, they will book you on their next flight and pay your accommodations meantime. For two separate ...

I flew Amsterdam-Rio last year, it landed more or less on time, maybe 20 minutes late, but there was an incredibly huge queue at the passport control, that took slightly over an hour. In case your flight is also an hour late, you'd miss the connection, and the flights to Iguassu are more expensive in the last minute. I really wouldn't recommend that ...

At least in some airports, this is unrelated to duty-free or other taxation issues. Airlines get rebates from the airport based on the amount that their passengers spend in airport shops. Many European airports have a very large proportions of low-cost flights, and most or almost all flights are within the EU. While the sticker price of the flights is very ...

As Gagravarr said, if it's on the same ticket, you don't need to worry. 1.5 hours is plenty of time even if you have to go through customs and have a checked-in baggage. Oslo airport is pretty small, so even if your first flight arrives slightly later, you'll still make it easily. In case it's late more than an hour and the flight to Germany is on time, then ...

In the Dutch airport shops there is the rule that only outbound passengers may buy goods in the 'duty free' shops. They are not really duty free anymore but the rule still stands. All outgoing passengers are allowed to buy, so it is not nationality nor destination. I guess that those airports where they do not have that restriction use the boarding cards as ...

I don't find any relevant EU regulation at the moment and the practice may even be based on national law, but the purpose is to determine if the purchase is subject to VAT or other taxes. At least in Germany, purchases from shops in international airport terminals are not subject to VAT if the customer is a foreigner (not German citizen) and is bringing the ...

Without knowing exactly which shops and items, it is hard to tell. I would suspect it has something to do with duty-free shopping, where you have to show proof that you are actually leaving and taking the items with you. Duty does not apply to everything you might purchase, and certainly not to food or drink you are going to consume on the spot.

As a standard operating procedure JetBlue suggests to check-in 3 hours before departure. This is coherent with the travel tips on the Nassau Airport website, which also suggest to arrive 3 hours before the departure of your US-bound flight: Plan to arrive at the airport at least three hours before your U.S.-bound flight and two hours for all other ...

I arrived at Terminal 2 at night and had a big surprise: there is no bus that takes you to T1 or T3, only a taxi. So be prepared with at least 50-65 AED to pay to the taxi driver that will get you to T1 or T3 metro station. Everyone says the transfer is available only if you have a ticket to fly to another destination. I was very disappointed about this.

It would depend on the security officer that checks you in and the country where your flight originates. TSA doesn't allow frying pans especially cast iron ones it's check only as evidenced in a blog from Forbes. TSA also has a mobile app now that you can look at. But since it's a flight originating from another country TSA rules may not apply so ...

Assuming that you have the right to enter the Schengen area without any additional hassle, 10 hours is more than enough to go to the center, hang out there, even do some sightseeing in case you've never been to Munich before, then return and safely catch your onward flight. There's a direct train/s-bahn connection to the airport that takes around 40-45 ...

It is fine to leave Australia on your Aussie passport and present your UK passport when you arrive. It's common practice for dual nationals. Upon arrival, join the EU queue. And yes, it will be faster most of the time. They are entitled to ask how long you have been out of the UK and where you have been since you last left. For your other question: are ...

There is a free shuttle bus between the two terminals. In addition, there are golf carts standing by at some cost. Details can be found on the Vietnam airports website, which says: Passengers can use shuttle bus (free of charge for transit passengers) to transport between T1 and T2 terminal. Time of operation: From 06h00 to 24h00 (local time); ...
