The good news first - Delta do "interline" bags with Aeroflot, so she will be able to check the bags all the way through to Moscow. If the two flights are booked on the one ticket this should happen automatically. If they are on different tickets, then you will need to show a printout of the e-ticket when checking in with Delta. Either way, be sure to ...

Most airlines belong to one of the three big alliances, in Alitalia's case Skyteam, but Etihad does not. However, since Etihad is a large investor in Alitalia, they encourage flights with them by accepting their flights for mileage in the Etihad program. That's it, really. Or in simpler terms, Alitalia is friends with investor Etihad and fellow Skyteam ...

For Flying Blue you will earn level miles and award miles, and the flight will count as a qualifying flight, but only if your flight is not booked into the Z, Q or G booking codes. https://www.flyingblue.com/earn-and-spend-miles/airlines/partner/180/china-eastern.html The usual exceptions apply. As a frequent flier, your usual SkyPriority benefits will ...

The definitive guide on where you can credit miles to and how much you will earn is on wheretocredit. From that, you can see the earning rates on Flying Blue and Aeroflot. Where to Credit provides mileage earning calculations for frequent flyer programs around the world. The site is not affiliated with airlines (nor do I have any connection to it) and the ...

There is good news and not so good news. The good news is that because Delta and Aeroflot codeshare your daughters bags will be checked in directly to the destination. The not so good news is that Aeroflot is located in Terminal 1 and Delta flight will likely to arrive to Terminal 3. Delta does have a shuttle running between the terminals it operates in ...

No. Miles are not a currency that can be moved between programmes. There are some exceptions (such as Avios, which can be moved between the British Airways Executive Club and the Iberia Plus) but this is unusual. I am not aware of any SkyTeam programmes that work like this. If it is absolutely essential that you move the miles you might be able to convert ...

The official minimum connection time entered into the GDS for this is 50 minutes. This means the computer will not sell you a tighter connection. I am not 100% 50 minutes is actually doable. But two hours? Plenty. I am not sure where you are getting the inter-european 40 minutes from, MCT is given as Domestic-Domestic, Domestic-International, International-...

As carry-on luggage Most airlines have rules that limit the size of carry-on luggage (mostly so that it fits under the seat in front of you or in the overhead luggage bins). To make it easier to check, they usually state the rules as maximum length, width, height, rather than the sum of the 3 (as is more often the case for checked luggage). For instance, ...

Does anyone have any tips for packing large amounts? Research the airline's baggage limits on their website. You'll usually be given a certain number of bags and a weight limit that are included in your ticket, with a charge for additional bags or additional weight. Get a luggage scale (sold at travel or many hardware stores) and ensure you take full ...

Russian version of Sheremetyevo (SVO) contains this information: Не допускается заполнение въезжающими на территорию Российской Федерации иностранными гражданами бланков миграционных карт непосредственно в залах прибытия аэропортов до начала пограничного контроля. Въездные и выездные части миграционных карт (талоны «А» и «В») заполняются сотрудниками ...

I have been a member of Aeroflot Bonus for close to 10 years now and I must admit that they have some of the most "expensive" redemption rules. A return (round-trip) travel between Moscow and London cost 30,000 miles, for example. By comparison, the old BMI (rest in peace) only required about 9,000 miles for the same trip. You can view how many are ...

If the airport has a website it could be your best friend. In this particular case Kazan International provides this information (in Russian and English). Under section "For Passengers and Guests" there is a section of How to Get there with section specifically by Bus. It lists that there is a bus №97 which starts running at 5 am, though reading some of ...

I would suggest re-asking on expatriates.stackexchange.com or some other expat forum (expatfocus.com, for example, is one of many). I would also consider truly "leaving [almost] everything behind." Set aside what you can't bear to part with and find someone you can trust to sell the rest for you. If what you take is small enough, a company like UPS, FedEx,...

According to Heathrow's own connection planner, the minimum connection time between these two flights is 90 minutes. Since you have 3h25m you'll have plenty of time (I ran the simulator with random dates, but the flights should be the correct ones):

The Airline Might Not Provide the Tourist Card I tried searching the web for information on this topic. Turns out I could not find a one unique truth. According to the Cuba tripadvisor traveler article it seems that selected tour operators provide the Tourist Card as part of their package. However, it would also seem that the release of tourist cards from ...

This mean that at LAX; perhaps due to customs or other security restrictions - the airline cannot accept baggage to be delivered directly to/from passengers (at the gate) and it has to go through customs/clearance. So you'll have to check it in and surrender the stroller at the check-in; and if arriving at LAX receive it at customs. I would highly ...

You probably already flew, but for others here is some recommendation for caution. You actually are aware of the issues you would run into, but I think you underestimate the time you need. As the comments suggest, a travel insurance might help you in case of delays. And as Wikitravel recommends, 3 to 4 hours might be necessary for domestic to international ...
