According to Delta's Baggage page you can check the child seat at curbside and doesn't count as standard baggage allowance. For JetBlue it's the same thing. If the child doesn't fly with you it will count as baggage allowance in a standard way. They definitely won't let you bring it aboard the aircraft but they may not even let you bring it through ...

There are a few things you can do: Contact the airline. The sooner you contact them, the better. They usually will be happy to help you to get your computer back. Contact the police. They probably won't help, but if it was stolen, they'd be happy to investigate for you. If you have insurance, contact them. Even if they can't get the laptop back, you ...

According to Delta, for eCerts: Delta eCerts Credit Voucher must be redeemed and ticket issued by the date above. Extensions are not permitted. So, the date shown is the last date in which you can issue the ticket, not the date to end the travel.

Within US and Canada its $25, and they don't mention specifically that its only from the US to Canada, so I would assume that its both ways. To the best of my knowledge flights to/from Canada are considered "domestic" for all terms and purposes, so I see no reason why the luggage would be an exception.

If the ticket has been paid for and issued, you should have no problems travelling after cancelling the card. However, if boarding privileges and free check-in are a benefit of the card and not your status with the airline, then it is reasonable to expect that these benefits will be retracted after you cancel the card. That being said, check-in staff are ...

As a general rule, you should join the mileage program for the airline that you want to fly when you redeem your miles. While it is possible to redeem miles on partner airlines, there are several disadvantages: Availability is typically much more limited when trying redeem miles on partner flights. Also, it's often impossible to check availability on ...

Yes, it's entirely possible, and since Delta and Korean are both in Skyteam the itinerary is quite feasible. However... Tickets like these are usually impossible to book online, you will need to book this directly with the airline or a travel agent. (Update: There are exceptions, and Delta appears to be one of them!) While price difference between ...

Medallion Qualification Miles refers to the miles required to obtain/keep status. The 'Bonus Miles' are simply standard miles, which can be used to book "free" flights, but which do NOT count towards your status. Simple as that, really...

If you look through Delta's SkyMiles partner rules for Aeromexico, they state that flights to/from Havana do not earn miles. http://www.delta.com/content/www/en_US/skymiles/earn-miles/earn-miles-with-partners/airlines/aeromexico.html No idea why, but likely due to US trade restrictions against Cuba.

Under the Delta Pay With Miles program, you can purchase Delta flights with a combination of miles and money, but you need to have one of the Delta co-branded American Express cards and purchase your tickets directly from Delta in order to do it. So, if you still have that Delta Gold AmEx, you can do this. The eligible cards are the Delta SkyMiles Gold ...

No. USA immigration and customs is always at your first stop in the USA, except if you are departing from an airport with pre-clearance. Brussels is not one of those. The JFK terminals are connected by a train.

PassKit's answer is correct, but I wanted to add some more detail. First off, just to confirm, your ticket will still be valid, but you'll lose the extra bag and priority boarding. Those privileges only apply if you're an active Delta co-branded cardholder at the time of the flight. Delta's computers will be aware of whether you are an active cardholder or ...

You do still receive the 50% MQM bonus on top of the minimum 500 miles, resulting in 750 MQMs earned for the flight. So, the formula is: maximum (500, distance flown) * 1.5 Here's how my flight from yesterday (May 19, 2015) was credited: For reference, BNA->ATL is only 214 miles. So, they did apply the 500 mile minimum first and then apply the 50% ...

Let me share my actual experience. I flew with Delta two days ago. I had a small backpack, and a booster seat (I didn't bring another bag). I flew alone. They allowed me check in the booster seat for free, and told me that it would have been free if I had another carry-on bag. It might be that the person was just good, but it seems that they give ...

As far as I know, Delta, like most other airlines, doesn't give customers the option to directly buy tickets with a combination of miles and cash. The closest option I know of is that you can use money to buy miles (see the "SkyMiles" tab on the Delta home page). You could buy the additional miles that you need, then book the flight using miles only. ...

From the SkyTeam site: Redeem miles As a member of a SkyTeam Member airline’s frequent flyer program you can easily redeem your Miles for an award ticket on any SkyTeam-operated flight worldwide. The miles required will be set by Korean Airlines, along with any fees/taxes, but I think you'll only be able to book onto Delta flights with spare ...

You certainly have enough time and nothing to worry about if the flight legs are on the same ticket. In case you bought separate tickets to JFK and from JFK, then you'll still probably make it, but in case the first flight is 2+ hours late, then you're very likely to miss the second flight and you're not entitled to a compensation from the airline. In case ...

Just to post a followup. After a lot of emailing back and forth (with some totally unacceptable language being used on their part), the travel agent said they had been trying to make contact with Delta to resolve the matter and were unable to do so but they would honor the tickets on their end. Happy days.

You can always try calling Delta and see what they say, but unfortunately Airlines are usually pretty picky on these types of things. I am certain that there is no way to do it online with an already existing reservation. Who knows? Maybe you will get a really nice agent on the phone who can pull some strings!

As a US passport holder, passport check is a non-issue. You can enter the Schengen area for up to 90 days without visa if needed. But you could also go directly from your US flight to the non-Schengen part of the low-cost pier at Schiphol airport without entering the Schengen area (see the discussion following At Schiphol is 55 minutes enough for a transfer ...

From a paper voucher .... Redemption/Transferability: Voucher is non-transferable unless assigned to someone traveling with the original voucher owner on the same reservation at the time the voucher is being redeemed. In other words it can be applied to your daughter's airfare, as long as she is traveling on the same reservation as you are.

"within US and Canada" -> not crossing the border, so your departure and destination are in the same country (say Atlanta to Buffalo, NY) "U.S./Canada and Caribbean" -> departure and destination in different countries (so say New York to Montreal).

My experience with Jet Blue that first baggage is free plus they allow to check in a car seat and also a carriage they even let you walk with the baby in the carriage till the flight for your convenience and over there they take it over and you getting it back right when exiting flight. All The Best!
