comment Recalling the train/seat details for a SNCF ticket loaded onto your Voyageur card?
Does it remember your tickets for offline use? (eg Can I import my tickets after booking, and then several months later when at a station with no internet, recall them?)

comment No stamp when going from India to Glasgow through Dublin
In many cases, if you need to pass through immigration within the CTA, you need to actively seek someone out. Just because most people on the plane/ferry didn't need to, doesn't excuse you for not doing so, at least in the eyes of the immigration rules...

comment No stamp when going from India to Glasgow through Dublin
Who did you ask in Glasgow? IIRC, UK+IE nationals don't need to go through immigration when moving between the two countries due to the Common Travel area, but all others do, so you should've gone through immigration in Glasgow (even though most people wouldn't have)

comment How do non-English speakers navigate through international airports (specific question about Amsterdam)
Amsterdam Schipol airport is actually very good, lots of maps and signs around the place, including ones with pictures, so it ought to be just fine

comment Can I see which seats are available on a British Airways flight before I book?
That screenshot was taken when not logged in, when searching for a fully-flexible economy ticket. It comes after the page that asks for your name, before the one asking for credit card details. Maybe try again without logging in?

comment Is there a site with all airlines carry-on restrictions?
The best resource I've ever found for carrier's luggage allowances is in the luggage departments of higher-end department stores. Very handy for when you're considering which bag/suitcase to buy, less so for deciding which plane ticket to buy given the suitcase you already own...

comment Why do airlines now charge for flying standby in the US?
There's a recent long thread on this on the BAEC FlyerTalk forum, if you're interested have a read of that as the pros and cons are all well thrashed out there

comment Disembark flight at unplanned refuelling stop, if the stop is same as ultimate destination?
Does that apply to the US though? The US has some pretty strict rules about clearing immigration at the first port of entry, no airside transit etc, are you sure none of them affect things in this case?

comment Will I save much time by using the US preclearance facilities in Canada/Ireland rather than flying direct?
Why do you think that the OP would need to clear immigration in Ireland for an arrival from within the EU? In fact, why do you think they'd need to do Immigration at all in Ireland when on a direct airside transit?

comment Resort reservation: Booked for 5, 6 are staying
Have you tried asking them? If the fire code allows it, many hotels will provide a roll-away or similar bed for an additional adult on payment of a suitable suppliment

comment International arriving Chicago ORD to domestic, two different airlines how do I recheck bags?
Are you arriving from a destination that offers Pre-Clearance (eg Canada or Ireland)? That makes a huge difference to what's involved
