comment Time to Recheck Bag?
The last Continental flight left Newark sometime in 2012. Odds are that you will not have sufficient time to catch it.

comment Enter the USA before going to Canada on a WHV

comment Enter the USA before going to Canada on a WHV
@phoog Agreed, but that's not how the legislation is written. The rules talk about being a resident in Canada, which technically they aren't. Thankfully the immigration officials will follow the intent of the law and not the actual wording so it's not overly important.

comment US VWP when going to Canada
This answer is INCORRECT. The VWP rules explicitly state that a ticket to Canada is NOT sufficient to meet the return/onward ticket criteria for entry to the US under VWP except for residents of Canada. A ticket to outside of US/Canada/Mexico is required.

comment Enter the USA before going to Canada on a WHV
@MichaelHampton VWP rules explicitly state that a ticket to Canada is NOT sufficient unless you are a legal resident of Canada.

comment Traveling Amsterdam-Brussels with KLM ticket on Thalys - When / where does my ticket get stamped?
Despite what you've said in the question, this IS a duplicate of travel.stackexchange.com/a/42193/30703

comment Travelling to the US on the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) to attend a job interview
It's not "explicitly allowed" for Australians. The page you reference is simply stating that it IS allowed under standard visa rules.

comment Reentry with I-94 but without expired visa-bearing passport
How will you be re-entering the US? Via land, air, or some other means?

comment US visa traveling 3 months before the expiration date B2 tourism type for a minor
And just for the record, whilst this answer is completely true for US visas, it is not true for most other countries. Most countries require your visa to be valid for the entire length of your stay. The US is one of a few countries where it only needs to be valid on the day you enter.

comment Is it possible to get an e-Visa for Vietnam?
The information above says that a visa IS required, unless you are only going to Phu Quoc.

comment Can you travel to the US 6 months before your tourist visa expires?
This answer is incorrect. It varies depending on passport country, length of stay required, and type of visa/VWP.

comment In Europe, where is a water border with visible markers, which can be crossed by a tourist in a small rented boat, without a passport check?
You're asking if there's a border that looks like a scene from the movie "No Escape" (which was set in Asia, and filmed in Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia) somewhere in Europe? Does the border need to include the people aiming searchlights and guns (top left corner) at you as you cross, or is that optional?

comment Overstaying US Visa Waiver Program
You have not breached their immigration laws, "technically" or otherwise. There will be zero future implications.

Except that Switzerland is below not only the USA on that list, but also more than a dozen other European countries...

comment Compensation for denied boarding due to baggage delay
I'm voting to close this, simply because it's one of those situations where the chances of ever knowing exactly what happened are basically zero. There's certainly not enough information in what's stated to make anything more than a guess at an answer, and claims around things like IDB don't help (If your seat was given to a standby passenger, then the flight was NOT oversold!!)

comment Compensation for denied boarding due to baggage delay
Airlines CAN transport baggage without the passenger, as long as it's not the passenger that causes that to occur. A missing bag should not have caused you to be denied boarding - I suspect there is a lot more to this story...

comment How can you identify the year of a boarding pass
FYI, the year is NOT in the barcode (even the larger PDF417 barcodes). It's also not in the confirmation code. Ticket numbers are normally sequential, so whilst it's not in there either the airline might be able to tell a year based on that - or you might be able to at least put the tickets in order using the ticket number.

comment Easier to travel on a Swiss passport than American?
You are correct - the linked answer does not answer why some guys son told you that one was better than the other. Unless you expect that guys son to answer, I'm not sure how you can expect anyone to explain why he thought one was better than the other.
