Until about 5 years ago it was possible to have this plastic wrapping service done at LAX. Now you can't have the service done! LAX and SFO were the only American airports that I ever saw plastic wrap being done in. I have tried buying a big roll of the plastic wrap that moving companies sell to wrap their furniture in. It is very difficult to wrap your own ...

American Airlines for Dublin checkin suggest 3 hours and close at 1:15 before departure. I cut it a little fine, arriving just over 1.5 hours before departure, spent a few mins in duty free before heading to pre-clearance, and they were announcing pre-boarding when I got to the gate! The entrance to the pre-clearance area isn't that far from the main ...

If you buy items at the Dublin Airport duty-free, ask the staff to place your items in a sealed bag. They should do this automatically for any liquid purchases. You will be allowed to take this bag through security, but it must remain sealed until you arrive at your destination. All liquid, gel and paste purchases will be placed in a clear plastic Travel ...

Having checked with both the information desk in the airport, and emailing the airport, the answer is sadly no. Their response was: Thank you for your comments about drinking water fountains. Lack of suitable locations has been the main issue why we have not introduced the facilities, however, we have started a terminal development program and ...

Only 3 kilometers apart You can't exit on the other side of the runways, that's quite clear so if you just take this https://goo.gl/maps/bkn67 section, it's already 3km and you are not yet on the other side of the airport. Then from the point you provide (or so) to the very outskirts of the town https://goo.gl/maps/wRIop it's another 2km. So you are ...

Let's tear this question apart because it's reasonably common. I will answer the generic question, the specific should be clear after: You intend to leave the airport after stepping off a flight. If you have the legal right to stay in the country then this shouldn't be a problem. In most cases, if you are allowed inside the terminal you should be in the ...

Aer Lingus suggests to head for pre-clearance no later than 90 minutes before the flight. This could be a good initial indicator to be adjusted depending on experience. Quoting from their website: After check-in, passengers on these flights should follow airport signage for the US pre-clearance facility. The entrance to the US pre-clearance facility is ...

Wikvoyage also lists Jackson Hole (JAC), West Yellowstone (WYS) and Idaho Falls (IDA) as possibilities. I don't know your exact dates, so I can't tell you how much the flights will cost.

In terminal 5 it depends on what gate you arrive at. The F gates are quite a walk from security. The entrance to Arlanda Central is located in Sky City between Terminal 5 and Terminal 4. I would count on 5-15 minutes to get out of arrivals - then another 10 minutes to get to the station so with some marginal 30 minutes should be fine. With checked luggage it ...

Some airlines actually publish recommendations per airport. See http://www.delta.com/content/www/en_US/traveling-with-us/check-in/requirements.html https://www.aa.com/i18n/travelInformation/checkingIn/arrivalTimes.jsp?anchorLocation=DirectURL&title=arrivaltimes In general I have found that 2 hours works fine for most airports in the US, Europe, and ...

The reasons for checking your passport vary. The checkin staff are doing two things: confirming you are indeed the person named on your ticket, and confirming (with the help of their computerized system) that you will be allowed to make your journey. They do this because if you are not allowed into your destination country, or to make a transit, their ...

This is specific to Istanbul (or maybe Ankara to). They want to make sure you don't have an obvious problem to enter UK or US for the cost of crossing their boundaries, kind of over helping but actually saves some people.

No. You need to first get through check in. For example, Budapest airport is annoyingly slow while Vancouver is surprisingly fast. Then there is security. The waiting time for this varies from day to day and hour to hour and often terminal to terminal. Some airports require you to Remember, you will still need to pass through security at least 60 minutes ...

Parking Lots ... Parking Lots Everywhere Parking around Chicago O'Hare Airport seems to be a highly requested service, considering the number of options that can be found on the web. The reason behind this is probably due to the lack of convenience of having to catch a train from the economy parking lots to the terminal, or to the lack of cheap (≤ ...

It is unlikely you will be able to do much in your stopover. Not only is it very busy, as described by @Vince, it is also enormous. If you are coming from domestic to international terminals you need to reckon on a half hour walk, using all walking aids available, to make the switch. Ticket desks and interchange desks are also extremely distantly located. ...
