Flying from Cancun to Hawaii, I have a 7 hr. Layover. Do I check my bags all the way or recheck them in the morning. I am going to a hotel for the night.

    Is it the same booking the whole way through? Which airlines? Where is the layover? More details would go a long way... – Mark Mayo Apr 21 '14 at 7:09

    Where is your layover? – Flimzy Apr 21 '14 at 13:05

Assuming your layover is in the US, you will not be permitted to check your bags all the way through. When you land at the first stop, you will be required to reclaim your baggage, go through customs, then re-check your bags before boarding the flight to Hawaii.

If you happen to go to a hotel between customs and re-checking your bags, I'm sure nobody will even notice.

  • @choster: I understand, but that's probably irrelevant to the question... unless they do something to ensure that you don't leave the airport with your bags, or that you don't open your bag. – Flimzy Apr 21 '14 at 15:03
  • Ah, I missed that there was an overnight involved. – choster Apr 21 '14 at 15:13
