Assuming you are on a single itinerary (given that you have mentioned codeshare flights), your luggage will be tagged to your final destination, Cincinnati. What this means in practice is that you will not need to collect and recheck your luggage in London. However, you will need to collect it and recheck in Chicago. When you first arrive in the US, you ...

You cannot avoid problems like this when travelling. It is like trying to avoid traffic when driving. Maybe you live in a village and you travel to work at 5 am. Even so, one day you will get stuck in a jam. It happens. If you're taking connecting flights, you will get delayed and at some point you will miss a flight. It is a normal thing. The best you can ...

Yes you do need to clear immigration and customs in Atlanta. But on the brightside Atlanta's immigration area is fairly large and well manned, so processing time is not too bad. While as a US citizen I go through a different line, I have seen foreign nationals from my flights awaiting their baggage same time as me, so they have obviously made it through ...

There are multiple uses of transfer and transit even within the field of travel, so context is essential. Much as many travelers indiscriminately say direct when they really mean nonstop, precision in your own terminology and tolerance for others' will be necessary for understanding. Some of the key differences lie between Industry use and general use ...

Atlanta is a very efficient airport. They have a large immigration and customs area, which moves passengers through expeditiously. If your bags are checked through to Munich, then you simply drop that at recheck just outside customs, clear security and head to your gate. If you are flying on different tickets or airlines, then you may have to recheck ...

If you don't want to stay in the airport until morning, you can continue traveling through the night. The linchpin of this plan is Amtrak Train 65, which departs New York Penn Station at 3 AM and arrives at Philadelphia 30th Street Station at 4:35 AM. Schedule here. The "transit" option of Google Maps shows an itinerary that goes as follows: Airtrain ...

The airline is under the same parent company as the resorts. They don't appear ...

The fact that your spouse as a US visa has no impact on their eligibility for Dubai transit visa. What will determine eligibility is the citizenship; assuming your spouse has Afghani citizenship - they will need to apply in advance for a visa (even for transit).

This is not a transit through Shanghai. The Chinese authorities will only care about where your flight to Shanghai originated, and, where your flight out of Shanghai ends. As you clearly have seen, the country you are arriving from must be different than the one you are going to. Since your itinerary has you arriving from and departing to the same country, ...

Actually I believe this is an illegal connection because for Qantas to Qantas in terminal 1 the minimum connect time is supposed to be 40 minutes. I am surprised the booking engine allowed 35 minutes (possibly the AA codeshare confused it). AA 7342 is a codeshare on QF 434. I tried to force QF 680 connecting to QF 434 at several dates, and although the ...

Yes, you will need a visa, as you'll be entering the country. The Philippines are not among the visa exempt countries for visiting Japan, and the Japan embassy in the Philippines has a list of all relevant documents / info that you may need. Narita and Haneda are almost 50 miles apart, so you definitely have to exit the airport to get to the other. We have ...

The total time from gate to gate will approximately be 40-45 mins.

Promoting some comments to an answer Is it a sensible connection to do on two tickets? No Is it a sensible connection on a single ticket? Depends on the traveller If it is all on one ticket, then the airline in question will rebook you if you miss the connection for whatever reason. They will rebook you onto the next available flight.

Assuming both flights are from the same airport (Bangkok has two international airports) and your bags are checked through to Columbo, you do not need a visa. When you disembark from your Beijing flight follow the transfer counter signs, clear security and proceed to your next gate.

You are more than okay with the transit time because: Jeddah is the main hub for Saudia; so there are plenty of connecting flights (in case you miss your connection). You don't have to go through customs and immigration; there is no airside transit visas or such formalities in Saudi Arabia. The terminal is huge, but easily navigable. You may have to resort ...

If you bought it as one ticket, then it will be sufficient, but it looks a bit tight. (Although I expect it's a common connection.) The airline will re-accommodate you if you miss the connection. The minimum connect time in this circumstance is 1 hour 30 minutes. Int-Int on SV at JED: STANDARD.D/D...D/I...I/D...I/I. ONLINE 1.15 2.30 2.30 1.30 OFFLINE ...

If you were on a single booking and didn't need to pass through immigration, you could transit without a visa. Timatic tells us that transit without visa is possible if you remain airside. Since you are on separate tickets and will need to pass through passport control to collect your luggage and change flights, you will need a transit visa. In theory you ...

Short update: we decided to have our flights changed and now have over 3 hours to make the connection. This will give us more peace of mind, I really don't like stressing over connection times when travelling :) Because it's an involuntary change due to BA's decision to change the flight times, we're not even charged any additional fees.

It is possible, but it is not straight-forward. Canada's visa requirements for citizens of Pakistan state that you require a visa to visit or transit in Canada. If you do still decide to visit your friend, you will have to apply for a tourist visa. If you simply want to transit in Canada ( less than 48h ) then you can apply for a transit visa. Applying for ...

They do not revoke transit visas on a whim. There needs to be a concrete reason like you obtained it fraudulently or you are using forged documents. The law says that a transit visa means the Home Office has already checked you out and you are cleared. From the rules... The holder of such an entry clearance will not require leave to enter on arrival ...
