Is my assumption that I need to be at YVR at 4:05 correct? Yes, it is always recommended to arrive 2 hours before your flight. Am I correct in saying that the above two options are basically the only ones? (Except that I can take Canada Line earlier than 1:06 am and that I can take N10 earlier than 3:09 am.) Yes, that is correct. In my opinion, the bus ...

It is very unlikely that you will even have to say any word at all. You could try asking the people next to you in the plane if they can help you with immigrations, they can have their passports checked at the same time as you, like families do. If they would have any questions they will contact a translator for you if they don't have anyone working who ...

I’m not sure if there will be, this will be hard to tell especially at different times and shifts. In advance as long as you just provide them with any documents they can ask for (passport and any other documents) then you can just make it clear you don’t speak their language. If you present all the documents they may ask for you should be able to proceed ...

Yes. The TSA does not care what terminal you use, and the documentation requirements do not change in any way. You are entering the same sterile area no matter which checkpoint you go through. The international terminal is the site of a pilot program using CT scanners instead of traditional X-ray machines, so who knows if that will speed things up or slow ...

Airlines can know you are in the airport if you checked your bags in. It is illegal for the plane to leave with your bags if you're not on the flight. At security, I assume they don't really care about your booking, only that you are on a flight and have the authorisation to be in that area of the airport. On all international flights, and on domestic ones ...

Since you are transiting in both Lisbon and Madrid, you will be entering the Schengen Area and not just transiting. Therefore, you will need a regular Schengen short stay visa, regardless of the terminal situation in Madrid. As you are entering through Portugal, you should apply for such a visa at the consulate of Portugal. The consulate of Portugal likely ...

You need a Schengen type C short stay visa for this itinerary. The terminal change in Madrid isn't relevant; the fact that you are entering the Schengen area at Lisbon and exiting Schengen in Madrid is the important bit. To do this, you need to have the regular Schengen visa.

During my visit in 2013, my impression was that there was only 1 security area. From incoming flights from Europe, you first go though immigration and then pick up your bags and go through customs. Between customs and security you are supposed to give up your bags again, which I missed all together. A security assistant took the bag and delt with it. ...

According to TripAdvisor, the 7-11 convenience store has printers where you can print, scan and fax. I can't really confirm based on their website (in English, there is a Taiwan website too) because it's not explicit on there but there is a phone number to the terminal where the store is located that you probably can call to be sure.

Is Frankfurt airport taking kickbacks from the airlines for missed flights? Highly unlikely. Believe it or not, airlines hate long and unpredictable security lines too. The FAA sets minimum connection times and when these need to get longer, the airlines lose operational efficiency. The airlines DO NOT control security and neither does the airport; this ...

You won't get any compensation for this, hundreds have complained but it won't get you anywhere. Court-ruling In its latest decision (III ZR 48/17), the Federal Court of Justice has reiterated that passengers are responsible for their own schedules and must allow sufficient time for airport security checks. Under this court ruling, you have to face the ...

You should launch a complain with the airport, it’s their fault not the airlines. Their staff were: Rude Unprofessional Misleading You should explain all the details of your case to the airport, obtain the details of that worker and explain you want a refund of your ticket arranged with the airline (not your fault you missed the flight) and compensation ...

There are several reasons for this: Not everyone uses the check-in counter Not all passengers use the check-in counter. Nowadays with airlines charging more money to check-in luggage, more passengers just carry hand luggage. This means they don't pass the check-in counter but go straight to security. Therefore a check at the gate is necessary. The check ...

I would not anticipate any problems with security upon departing the UK. People travel with those sorts of items all the time, and none of them are listed as prohibited by the UK Civil Aviation Authority, as far as I can tell When you arrive in South Africa, you will need to declare these goods by going through the red channel, as their value exceeds ZAR ...

In the UK security knows what computer parts are and how they look on the screens. If in doubt they might ask you to unpack an item so they can actually see it. You should bring these items in your hand luggage, as valuables and breakables should not be packed in your hold luggage. But you seem to have too much for your hand luggage. In that case you will ...

As mentioned in the comments these gates have to be manned so there may not be enough officers: At least in the UK, there's still an officer monitoring the automated gates, perhaps one officer per every four gates. For that reason I'd guess that dynamically adjusting the number of gates according to demand wouldn't be entirely trivial, so the number of ...
