There is a Heathrow Porter service for luggage: Heathrow porters are at your service to help with luggage. The service costs from £9 for a standard amount of luggage. Porters are available on terminal forecourts and in baggage reclaim halls. On your departure they will meet you and your party on the forecourt and escort your luggage to ...

You could pay for a porter, like Mark Mayo suggested, but I would personally rather use a baggage cart, or trolley, even if I had to pay for one. According to Heathrow's website, they're free to use in Heathrow airport. Baggage trolleys are provided for your use free of charge in key areas around the terminal buildings. Arriving passengers will ...

It's actually pretty common to sleep at Cusco your first night. My brother, for example, flew from Lima to Cusco. It's not ideal and you're likely to have a headache, but it's uncommon for anything too serious. You definitely want a full day (two nights) based in Aguas Calientes if you want the full experience. The reason being if you want to be on the ...

As you already figured, the baggage information on Turkish Airlines states a basic 20kg per passenger for international flights, with a lot of exceptions. Looking at the baggage information page, I can see exceptions for flights from/to USA and Canada, South America, many African countries and some European countries like Germany and Ireland. There are even ...

When you preclear US customs at Halifax Stanfield you will not need to go through customs again when reaching the United States. You arrive at a domestic terminal in the US rather than an international terminal and can proceed directly to your next flight. All you need to do is to make sure the airline checks your bags through to TPA, which they will do if ...

I have to disagree with the suggestion that it depends on your health and fitness condition. I had a severe case of altitude sickness while in Atacama in Chile for a week. Together with two others who in their professional life were well-trained soldiers. I wouldn't say I am a master example of well trained body, but the soldiers definitely were. I think it ...

Altitude is something you can not really prepare for with a trip of the length you are undertaking. Climbers spend several weeks walking into basecamp areas and several more weeks hanging at the base to slowly acclimatise themselves. Spending one or two nights at middle altitudes will not make any real difference. You might as well go straight to Cusco. ...

I also had to leave my baggage in the Chennai airport, so I'm contributing this for the others. (Since there were no recent answers about this with confirmed information) There is a place to leave your luggage in the Airport. In Chennai airport, departures and arrivals, both international and domestic terminals are next to each other, with about 500m ...

Although United and American probably do have an interline baggage agreement (most of the larger IATA members do), and are probably capable legally and operationally of transferring bags directly, it is up to the discretion of each airline whether or not to do so. And most US carriers have been increasingly reluctant to do so over the last few years as they ...

From personal experience, it is not as bad as it may seem, but then again it probably depends on your health and fitness level. I am 37, my wife is 33, neither of us is very fit, but not we are not couch potatoes either. We flew from Lima (sea level) to Cusco and stayed there for 5 days. Before the trip we had similar concerns as you had, and we also had ...

Skiis are pretty darn durable afterall they are built to carry 150 kilos of flailing human through meter tall moguls. And how many times have you stomped them with your ski booted foot to release the bindings. They will travel just fine. Poles can get bent, but you can always strap them together for more strength or to your skiis. Or if you are really ...

There is a luggage storage point in the city centre https://plus.google.com/107594251083173710256/about?gl=pl&hl=pl

I needed to store my luggage in Hollywood because I had a 12 AM flight and arrived early in the day from another city, so all I did was order a cheap bunk at a backpacker's place. Then the good thing was I got to take a shower before getting on the flight.

As of 2015-04-16 WEST it seems possible. After having printed my boarding pass, here’s what I did: Clicked Manage Booking near the top of the Ryanair page. On the next page, clicked: Add checked bags On another page, selected as option Add Services- Baggage/Transfers/Car Parking. In the section Retrieve my booking, I entered my reservation number and the ...

I finally have the answer. I called up Turkish Airlines and they have confirmed that my checked allowance is 40kg, although this must be divided over two suitcases as the limit is 32kg per case. Thank you everyone for your research and advice. It looks like I'll have to order a bigger taxi to the airport!

I have flown from UK (London) to Tbilisi with Turkish Airlines many times. I have my next flight from London to Tbilisi booked for just over a month from now. The baggage allowance normally is 20 kg and this is stated on the ticket. What you can do is go to the Turkish Airlines website and then find your reservation there - even if you didn't buy the ticket ...

A little confused as I can't find a current flight via Reno connecting Hnl to xna. http://www.flyxna.com/airlines-flights/airlines/ However assuming that it is actually via Las Vegas. I looked at the actual operating airlines, so American flights could actually be operated by Envoy air or Mesa Air branded as American eagle, and the United flights as ...

Because United and American do not have Interline Agreements in place. Interline agreements address the issues of transfering passenger data from one airline to the next, which in turn effects the transfer of baggage. If two airlines do not have an agreement, then bags will have to be claimed and then rechecked with the next airline. The lack of interline ...

I was starting to wonder whether you could get back to the drop off or is it behind security but then I realized something: you won't be able to add it during the recheck because last I've done this (although not at EWR but I suspect it's the same) it was not like a full service station complete with baggage tag printers just a simple drop off. Thinking ...

It seems to me you're worrying too much. :) If you want to see the sunrise at Machu Picchu, which is highly advised, you'll have to stay the previous night in Aguas Calientes. I would advise against staying two or more nights as the village has very little to offer. You might indeed get altitude sickness. To minimise the effects, take it easy. So, it ...

Two people have suggested that porters are available AT the luggage carousel. But I'd be surprised if porters are allowed t be in the customs controlled area for international flights. If so, problem solved, if $ cost is OK. However, I'd strongly expect that a lady travelling alone who could not manage to fit all bags on one trolley, would attract offers ...

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 ...

I would recommend you to use despegar to book tickets and hotels, you could probably find better deals there in compare to expedia.
