US Airports are not separate like most Australian airports are. International and domestic departures often leave from the same terminals, as the US does not have as strict physical controls as Australia does. Airline departures are done as you have surmised by the airlines, via the APIS system. So your conclusions are correct. You will land at LAX Terminal ...

I couldn't find a reference on the airport's own web site, but from this page The terminal at Kiruna Airport is open during the day. The terminal opens about an hour before the first flight departure and close about 30 minutes after the last flight arrival. This means that the terminal is closed during the night. Kiruna Airport doesn’t offer any ...

Most airlines will not accept it, because of the high chances of it getting damaged - at your destiantion, you would probably find an empty ripped bag (if anything), and your stuff will be gone. As you can file a claim for the lost content with the airline, and they would have to pay for it, they deny instable packaging right from the beginning.

It will depend on exactly what you mean by a 'plastic bag', the airline involved, and potentially the specific check-in agent, but the general answer is NO, they will NOT accept it. Airlines will generally not accept "luggage" that they do not consider to be suitable to survive the trip without damage - and a plastic bag would normally fit within that ...

This depends on a number of factors. Firstly there is the physical aspect - can you physically access the lounge? Lounges are generally in the 'departure' area of the airport, which is often only accessible by departing passengers - at least for international arrivals, but even sometimes for domestic arrivals. If you can't physically access the lounge ...

In the EU airports I am familiar with you either can not buy any of the 'taxfree' or specially priced 'buy before you fly' items when coming through the airport shopping area on your way out, as only with a valid boarding pass (and it will be scanned) you can buy. Or you are not coming through the normal shopping area at all. There are airports with 'shops ...

When flying, or actually travelling in general, within the EU, there are no tax-free sales at all, neither to departing, nor arriving passengers. There are still many stores at airports, harbours or ferries labelling themselves 'tax-free', 'duty-free' or perhaps more common 'travel-value' shops, pretending to offer cheaper products, but all sales are still ...

There are at least some airports where you can do this. In general tax free purchases are for people departing for international destinations, on the presumption that the goods will be exported. Checks are made to establish this. There are airports which allow tax free purchases for those arriving from international destinations, on the presumption that ...

Aside from the official airport shuttle buses, if you are traveling via Philippine Airlines (PAL) or an airline with codeshare flights with PAL, you can avail of PAL's own shuttle service between Terminal 1, 2, and 3.

The bottleneck isn't the WiFi, but the connection between the island and the rest of the world. I develop an Internet-enabled product and we have a client on Easter Island. I'm given to understand that the entire island shares the equivalent of a 3G connection. I don't recall exact figures from our network logs for latency and throughput, but they're pretty ...

(as of 2017) As far as I can see, there's no cable going to Easter Island, so it is satellite broadband (4G) https://www.ses.com/case-study/entel (mirror) It should be robust, but not speedy.

Gate cutoff times do vary from flight to flight and from airline to airline. For most airlines it's 15-20 minutes but can be substantially longer of there is "special factor" involved. These could be: extra doc/visa check at the gate, security at the gate, bus instead of a jet bridge etc. These factors are hard to predict and can vary even for the same ...
