If you go to developed parts of South East Asia, bring a reasonable amount of clothes and do laundry. Just bring a good 45L backpack. Besides, t-shirts and shorts in Vietnam, Thailand etc are super cheap :-) Do not bring a suitcase with wheels, it will be very cumbersome.

If you enter the locker area from the ground floor (not via the escalators), then by the lost property desk are a handy set of baggage sizers, so you can quickly work out what size you need! They look like this, rucksack included to help with a sense of size Having worked out what size you want, you then wander round the banks of lockers (of which there ...

An easy option is the tram and a train. The tram stops just in front of the airport, with departures every 10 minutes. Take the tram to Edinburgh Park station, where you can change onto the train. There are trains to Linlithgow about every 30 minutes. Both the trams and train should have plenty of space for luggage, though the train could get a bit crowded ...

Yes the airline and the airport both have the authority to inspect your baggage. I suppose you could simply leave the airport and withdraw your baggage if you decided you did not want it screened. Typically you agree with the carrier at time of purchase something like this RULE 25 REFUSAL TO TRANSPORT Delta may refuse to transport any passenger, ...

The problem with Edinburgh is despite having a taxi rank, it's not outside the terminal (that area is reserved for buses). Since you are presumably arriving from Sweden, it will be a longer walk than from the domestic terminal. It's not a ponderous distance, but something to consider if you are carrying lots of luggage because getting to the taxi rank is ...

I believe it's perfectly fine. Just declare them as you enter (on any form you might have to fill in and when talking to a customs officer) and they will tell you if you need to pay any tax or duty. As long as you are upfront and proactive, you will not get in trouble. Bringing any invoice or receipt you have is also a good idea.

Thanks to mkennedy's comment on the question, I found this clock on Ebay and others like it. The key phrase, as mentioned in her comment, is: silent sweep hand Combining that key phrase with snooze led to many options. Unfortunately, I have no way of checking if any of the alarms do not stop beeping after N minutes or X snooze cycles before purchase. ...

Air China has a dedicated page on purchasing excess luggage. There are a few restrictions including the availability of the service being only on non-codeshare flights. To date the price for one 23kg extra piece of luggage is 650RMB. Below is a screenshot from the linked website:

I cannot answer your question with direct experience of the exact travel plan you have but let me put forward some information anyway. Hopefully someone can provide you a more experienced answer. Ukraine International Airlines (company code is "PS") do have appropriate contracts with Qatar Airways and Emirates to check your baggage through on such flights. ...

We did essentially this same thing last spring. I used a passport holder that hung around my neck but under my clothes to hold my passport and any travel docs. other than exactly what I needed just then, also my emergency credit card. I never carried much cash at a time, preferring the international VISA debit card I got at my bank before going. The hostels ...

I just wanted to give some short feedback on what I have done: I wrapped my USB power bank in a plastic bag Separated cables by wrapping all into another plastic bag Put both plastic bags inside my rucksack Camera as it is including its battery. Upon TSA security check I put those bags and camera into the containers. Everything was fine - no one ...

If your two legs are on seperate tickets, then the answer is yes: you will need to recheck your bags and need to have clearance to enter the country in this case. If you booked both legs on the same ticket, then you should be able to stay in the international area of the FRA airport without re-checking. There will also be no passport check necessary in this ...

The bag will remain on the claim belt until eventually an airport worker removes it and takes it to lost property. If the claim belt is used for many flights at a busy airport then of course that could be a long time (all day, perhaps). It is not unusual for international bags to go unclaimed for a long time (many hours perhaps) because of immigration ...

The three flights have been purchased as one ticket. Your bags will be checked through to your final destination (Ottawa). For informational purposes, if you enter a port in Canada that is not your final destination in Canada, you would have to clear customs at the first point of entry in Canada. In your case, Ottawa is your first port of entry in to Canada ...

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.

There are always extenuating circumstances; however, I once arrived quite early and it seemed there would be no problems. I had just been released from a two month stay in the hospital after having sustained a TBI (traumatic brain injury). I had just learned to walk again, so had a wheel chair waiting for me at the front. Going through the ex-ray machine, ...

I know from your other question that you're on a single booking, so... You won't claim baggage in Munich; it's just a normal international transit. You sit in the airport for a few hours until your next plane is ready to take you to Houston. In Houston, like everywhere else in the US, international arrivals have to carry their checked baggage through ...

According to Seatguru and FlySAS, on SAS you're always allowed a carry-on luggage and at least one piece of checked luggage. So yes, you're correct Simple rules. SAS always allows you to take at least one bag (up to 23 kg/51 lbs.) with you, plus one cabin baggage item up to 8 kg/18 lbs. completely free. If you are traveling in SAS Plus or SAS Business, ...

It is fairly trivial to open zips with a ballpoint pen and even close them later without any visible trace like shown in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5mvvZl6pLI This zip a grip thing would not be very helpful against a determined person

No, they're not prohibited. See faa.gov, which lists them in the "Allowed" column under "Toiletry and medicinal items" for both checked-in and carry-on luggage. However, if you bring them in your carry-on luggage, you need to ensure that they're under 3.4 oz (unlikely to be a problem) and placed in a transparent bag. In theory, anyway; in practice this ...

Is there any other kind of possibility of getting my checked luggage even if it's on different date? (Like if I let them put my luggage on another flight, while I go with the first scheduled and they notice me when I can pick it). They will not put your luggage on a flight you are not on, no airline will as far as I know (but see below for cargo ...

Even if you were to make the luggage come off in London, this is not the end of your troubles. I spent 3 hours at a Qatar Airways desk waiting to get baggage that could not be short-checked/ short-tagged for a 20 hours overnight stop. I'm not sure Heathrow will be better. Off the top of my head, I also think that they are subject to security searches if ...

I have seen on some airlines (mainly Emirates, but I think one more has it but the name escapes me) tag your bags with priority clearance if you are flying business or first. However, it is not guaranteed to be the absolute first bag unloaded - you are just guaranteed it won't be dead last; and even then only at the airline's hub. Bag load configuration ...

Unaccompanied bags are only allowed in freight not on passenger flights. As you will have to show your boarding pass at the gate at Heathrow, this will be checked against the luggage loaded. If the passenger is missing or hasn't boarded, their luggage will be offloaded due to security concerns. This is normal practice across almost all airlines/airports I ...

Considering that airlines typically won't ship luggage that's not connected to a flying passenger, your best bet, if you can't check in your boyfriend's luggage, is for you boyfriend to travel with his luggage himself. Unless you get clear confirmation his luggage will travel all the way to Stockholm, I suspect you run the risk of his luggage being ...
