You can easily spend this time roaming Dubai itself. Depending on your passport validity you may be entitled to a transit visa (which is for 72 hours). I would get that, leave my luggage at the luggage counters at the metro station and then go spend the day at Dubai Mall. If the above does not suit you; Terminal 3 would be the best place to spend your time. ...

I have a very similar JFK layover coming up - I've researched the question a bit, and here's what I could find: There's a site, https://www.between9and5.com/ , which lets you search for "Day Rates" at hotels near airports. There are a few options listed for JFK at around $75 for a 10am-to-3pm stay. Apparently you can find the best "day rates" by calling ...

5 hours is borderline. The trains work very well. The S9 goes every 15 minutes and it takes about 15 minutes to get to/from the city. You don't have to get off at Hauptbahnhof (which isn't necessarily the nicest spot in Frankfurt) but you also can go to, say, Hauptwache. However the airport itself is huge and it can take quite a while to get from the gate ...

In my experience on US airlines, the distinction is whether you are on a regional or mainline flight. On regional flights, you usually get your gate-checked bag back at the gate at your connecting airport; on mainline flights, it is usually checked to your final destination. Mainline flights are the typical flights most people think of: you are on a Boeing ...

I did this once - a few years ago. I arrived in Beijing on Emirates Airways and was transferring to a domestic flight on China Airlines. The three legs (London to Dubai to Beijing to Dalian) were on the same ticket/reservation. If I remember correctly, I did have to go through the passport and visa checks in Beijing airport. I also had to get and recheck ...

On a practical level, there is absolutely nothing stopping him from flying over, via or into Denmark. As you yourself state, there are no passport checks on leaving Sweden or entering Denmark from a Schengen country, nor will the airline check whether he's entitled to be in Denmark. The only case where he would likely run into trouble is if he attempts to ...

He will be allowed to overfly the country. Overflying is not considering entering the country for immigration purposes, and such arrangements are governed by international treaties. In particular for Community Carriers operating within the EU it is governed by Regulation EC 1008/2008 Chapter III Article 15 Community air carriers shall be entitled to ...

British Airways and US Airways are both part of the OneWorld alliance. As such, even if you were on two tickets, you'd be able to check your bags through. As it's all on one ticket, you will definitely be able to check them through (and that'll be the default). You'll hand over your bags in Rome, and won't see them again until Charlotte. (Check the baggage ...

Base on this post, BA has interline baggage agreements with UA and you mae 2 flights in 1 reserve. So you don't have to recheck baggage.

The other answers are really awesome. To me it looks a bit like all your asking is are you allowed to leave the airport on this layover? Given that you hold a passport which does not require a visa to enter Turkey You are basically a free person in Turkey, you are not being held in the airport etc, you can go where you like. There are no border ...

As you're traveling with Turkish Airlines and have a long layover, you can ask for a free tour of the city, hosted by Turkish Airlines. Here's some info: http://www.istanbulinhours.com/tour-schedule You should confirm this with the airline beforehand, as what's available depends on your schedule. Depending on the time and duration of your layover, you ...

Just after leaving the airplane, there's passport control, which is long because they're understaffed. It takes 45-60 minutes to get to taksim square, by either shuttle bus or metro. The bus because is easier, the metro is more dependable. A bus leaves every half hour. Hop in, the driver will walk and ask all passengers for money. In Turkey euros and ...

There are exceptions caused by bad IT (for example, years ago BA code sharing onto Aer Lingus used to be famous for that) but in general the answer is no. It's also quite unpredictable because those kind of gaps don't really stay around for long. Really air miles are not worth that much, the few extra you would collect from the B-C journey are not worth ...

Frequent flyer miles are generally only earned when there's a "butt in seat", to quote the charming term of art from frequent flyer forums. If you don't show up at the gate and get your boarding pass scanned for the flight from B-C, you're going to be recorded as a no-show, and you're not going to get any miles for it either. Also, while hidden-city ...

5 hours in Lisbon is tight. It is more tight when you talk about 6am. The rush hours in Lisbon at week days usually are tough. I saw few option. Easy to go. Praça do Comercio It is the old town of Lisbon. There you can see little streets, local and old coffees and restaurants. Also you can find a lot of touristic points. My favorite is Castelo de São ...

It is possible with a bit of planning and discipline. I think you will struggle to get into the centre of town, but you might instead be able to explore the area to the east of the airport, which has been recently regenerated into a modern style area, quite different from old Lisbon. There is a nice cable car that goes along the coast, and an oceanarium. ...

I had about 7 hours of a layover in Lisbon last summer returning to Dublin from Brazil. My bag was not checked through and for the life of me I could not find a baggage depository in the airport, so I took mine with me. It may be there, but be prepared to take your suitcase with you. The Metro goes right to the airport from the city centre, though you will ...
