Yes and No. There are a few different ways to get TSA Pre - each with it's own restrictions. You can get access via your airline, particularly if you're a frequent flyer. Historically you had to specifically request to gain access via this means, however many airline now will automatically submit you for access. Check with your airline to see if there's a ...

Short answer: Yes, if you're a US permanent resident or a citizen of the Canada, Netherlands, South Korea or Mexico, and apparently it's valid for five years. TSA: Who is eligible for TSA Pre✓™? Canadian citizens who are members of NEXUS. Foreign citizens who are members of Global Entry (see Global Entry eligibility) and not registered as a ...

As other explained, with a regular Schengen visa, you can enter the Schengen area in Geneva (or anywhere else in Switzerland and any other Schengen country). You don't need to go to France first. In fact, thousands of people land in Geneva each year to catch a shuttle to the many French ski resorts so it's an extremely common occurrence there. Additionally, ...

The Q&A here is helpful: https://www.gva.ch/en/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-193/ If you arrive into Geneva airport from outside France you cannot enter France directly; you must exit into Switzerland. However, the Q&A states clearly: Can I leave on the Swiss side with a Schengen visa issued by France? Yes, a passenger may exit on the ...

This should be okay. It says: The Contracting Party responsible for issuing such a visa shall in principle be that of the main destination. If this cannot be determined, the visa shall in principle be issued by the diplomatic or consular post of the Contracting Party of first entry. As your main destination is Annecy in France, you have the right visa ...

Boston Logan is one of the most efficient airports I have flown in and out of. It is also a huge airport. From my experience, if you don't require assistance, I reckon you be at the airport at least an hour before your flight departs.

Just in case you haven't checked a map, Narita Airport is about 2 hours from central Tokyo. Haneda is 30 minutes. Yes, Shinjuku and Shibuya are 24-hour places of interest, but do you really want to overnight there between long-haul flights, with your baggage in tow? There are many hotels in Hamamatsucho ( one train from Haneda ). You can explore a bit in ...

The train station is at the airport. You have to take up two (or three) escalators from the platform and then walk for approximately 50 meters to arrive at the check-in. There is only one terminal, so it will take you 5-10 minutes at most to go from the platform to check-in. It is a rather small airport and you should be able to find it without problems. ...

It's really in the airport (which is itself not very big but not so efficient for its size). Arriving: Out of the baggage claim, take left, walk 50-100m tops, you are already in the station (the actual tracks run underneath the airport). In the other direction you need to take some escalators, find the right check-in desk and then take some other escalators ...

I never had a problem with cheap plastic lighters. I would put them in the xray bin and it would be fine.

In addition to Doc's answer, some smoking rooms at airports have cigarette lighters in them as well. You make check this website for the product information on such lighters. I believe this ensures that you do not require a cigarette lighter in your baggage to smoke in permitted smoking areas in airports such as Delhi,Frankfurt or Amsterdam as these ...

Standard cigarette lights are generally allowed in carry-on baggage. Obviously this is an area where exact regulations vary from country-to-country, and there may be limits on the maximum number per person (eg, 1!) but for the most part they are allowed. For example, the US TSA "Can I Take" website will give you the requirements for cigarette lighters when ...

Haneda unlike Narita, is almost at the heart of Tokyo. In less than 40 minutes you can get to Shibuya a sleepless city. And 19:00 is still too early.Trains usually run until after midnight In case you are tired and want to catch some sleep there are always the "Manga Kisha" (cyber cafes with internet, Mangas, movies) with reclining sofa, showers, free drinks ...

I remember that sometime in the 90ties I saw something like this at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris. Of course different design - looked much more like a ticket vending machine of the time. But it sold insurances for a single flight. Was even tempted to buy one as it was rather cheap. Too bad I don't remember details, and no photo. But I think part of ...

Those machines seem to have been quite common. Here is a photo of one: There were even patented, but unfortunately the patent does not reveal the financial background. From this court case however, you can read about the process of making such a purchase: The policy set out across the top the following specifications: "Do Not Purchase More Than a ...

Since other questions have been closed and pointed to this one for answers regarding baggage transfer between airlines, I just wanted to point out that, while the above answer is correct specifically regarding UA and Lufthansa, it's not true for all airlines. Any airlines that are part of the same alliance will almost certainly check your bags all the way ...
