It sounds like you have two options, according to Airport-desk: There are baggage lockers in the airport failing that, you can store them at a desk as well, and the site suggests asking at any of the info desks at the airport for where to find these

Indian Customs Policies Importing Firearms in India The import of firearms in India is strictly prohibited, unless you fit the three requirements detailed below, taken from this site: Importing Air Guns/Pistols Air guns and air pistols are not firearms, per se, and therefore are subject to a different regulation. In particular, the import policy as ...

I tried checking the website for Frankfurt's airport but all it says is: In most cases, your bags will be forwarded to your final destination. Please inquire when checking in to make sure this is the case, while mentioning that you are only changing planes in Frankfurt. A sufficient number of luggage carts are available in both terminals. Generally ...

There are several travel golf bags that will protect your clubs in the hold, as bags can get thrown around quite a bit. For example, Bagboy has two hard-cases. Hard cases are recommended over soft as some airlines won't pay for damage caused to clubs in soft cases. If you want a cheap option, some pvc piping to protect the clubs, wrapped inside a soft bag ...

Promoting a comment to an answer If you're not in a huge rush, I'd suggest you skip flying, and take the train. Well, train + train + ferry. That way, you'll have the computer parts and monitor with you at all times, can keep an eye on them, can ensure that no baggage handlers throw them about it. Booked a little bit in advance, it's actually not that ...

Aer Lingus is working closely with BA (they used to be part of Oneworld and still have codeshares) so I am pretty sure they should be able to check your luggage through. They do mention it on their website as well: Aer Lingus will through-check baggage as a courtesy onto any carrier that have a baggage agreement in place, upon presentation of ...

It is hard to provide you with a single, universal answer as this depends on airlines, arrival/departure terminals and ticket booking procedure. As Heathrow's FAQ page states: Do I need to collect my baggage? It depends on your airline – often your baggage will be checked through to your final destination and you won’t need to touch it at Heathrow. ...

I have flown from the USA to Thailand with computer monitors in my checked baggage without issue on a couple of recent occasions (and I use a roller duffel, so effectively zero protection against theft). Most thievery from luggage is small, easy to conceal items like jewelry, cameras, phones, tablets, music players. A big monitor in its original box is too ...

If you are issued both boarding passes at Karachi, then your luggage will be checked through as well. There are no visa requirements to transit between any terminal at Dubai International. You will simply walk from one end of the terminal to the other; or if you are transiting from Terminal 2, there will be a bus. Terminal 3 is dedicated for Emirates. ...

Step-Free Access Research Just for kicks I used tfl's journey planner, and selected the option no stairs or escalators. I could not use your planned date (10th December 2014) because you can only plan ahead one month (so it'll have to wait for tomorrow. Here is the link to the suggested route. Below is a screenshot: The no stairs or escalators is a fancy ...

In your case, the Qatar Airways rule will apply; because they are the most significant carrier on your journey. You will have to recheck your bags though, as this is standard practice at the port of arrival in the US. For your flight, its $50 per bag, and the maximum one bag can weight is 32KG. You will only pay this extra if you are flying on Economy as ...

Qatar Airways has a page on their website with a handy table that explains all this: All other flights to and from Argentina, Canada, and the U.S. 2 pieces, each not to exceed 32kg (70lb) and a maximum dimension of 158cm (62in) (First and Business Class) 2 pieces, each not to exceed 23kg (50lb) and a maximum dimension of 158cm (62in) ...

No. I am assuming you are an Indian citizen, holding only an Indian passport. You cannot collect baggage without a visa, as the baggage claim is after immigration. You also cannot get a boarding pass without checking in on your Turkish airlines flight at India. To do this, you would have to leave the transit area in Dubai and then enter again at Terminal ...

(I didn't manage to find the duplicate, so I'll try to make a summary answer.) It all depends on two big aspects: Do you have one ticket (with transfer) or two separate tickets? To which country do you fly? If you have one ticket with transfer, then you should get checked in for both flights in Prague. I recommend to arrive the advised 2 hours before ...

The TSA Restriction The restriction you mentioned does not apply to all flights towards all destinations. It is a new rule which is slowly being implemented across continents. If I am not mistaken the US were the first, followed by UK. I could not find any official reference covering the status by country. All I stumbled upon were local online newspaper ...

If the airline found the bag AND you provided a specific delivery address when you filed the lost bag report, then they are responsible for delivering the bag to you at that address. If the airline found the bag, but you did not specify a alternate delivery address (ie you were still traveling or such), then they are responsible for informing you (which ...

The reply is actually on the site of the TURKISH AIRLINES: Damage or Loss If damage to the baggage is of a kind that can be immediately ascertained (such as broken wheels or handles, tears or missing contents) the passenger must, on the same day and before leaving the arrival hall, applying to Station Lost and Found Offices with their Travel ticket, ...

On full-service airlines luggage will almost always, if not always, be checked through to the final destination if all of the sectors are on the same airline or on partners in the same alliance. This should definitely happen if travel is all on the same ticket which is not the case for you. Some budget airlines do not check through baggage even when the ...

As far as I know you do not need to check-out, recheck-in your luggage. I traveled from Austria over Moscow to Bangkok with AEROFLOT and vice versa and I did not need to look after my luggage. In my case when traveling back from Bangkok over Moscow, AEROFLOT forgot my luggage in Moscow. I filled out some forms in Vienna and got my luggage 1-3 (I can't ...
