If you're looking specifically for a free and open source list of information, I regret to inform you that nothing of the kind exists: all data sources known to me are copyrighted and not free. Source: I maintain OpenFlights.org, one of the internet's primary repositories of free flight data.

In my experience, and I've only done this two times, it is not necessary to claim your bags and recheck them when connecting to a precleared flight to the US from Canada. Apparently, if US customs officers want to search your checked bags they will put them and you together in a room for that purpose, but otherwise you will not see your checked bags until ...

The reason you were told so because they are not up to date. The situation has very recently improved (last month, if I am not mistaken) and your bags now through check. Even if they don't you won't hug them for five hours, the traditional flow is deplane - collect bags -- go through US customs -- drop them off at the belts just after. But, again, I believe ...

Yes I just took the bus inside security - hard to find by gate c71. If coming in on international flight though you will probably still have to go through security again so might just take the train to correct terminal.

On your way to Paris, you don't have to check in or go through security at Atlanta. Your bags will be checked through and it will be just like a domestic connection as far as you're concerned. On your way home, you will need to go through passport control and customs in Atlanta. You'll go through passport control, pick up your checked bags and take them ...

There are several ways to go about this. You can inform the airline in advance that you intend to terminate at point D. By doing this, however, they may demand that you modify your ticket to terminate at D. This in turn may well result in a higher fare and/or a change fee, strange as it sounds; such is commercial aviation. You can simply no-show at point D. ...

Airlines generally don't like this, because it's often used for Hidden City Ticketing, in which you buy a ticket A-B-C intending to only go to B, because it's cheaper than the fare for A-B. The answers to this question cover the potential issues, but in short: It's probably fine as a one-off. Be aware that the airline is obliged to get you to A, not D, so ...

Yes. 1.5 hour is plenty unless there is unusual back up at immigration or your incoming flight is significantly delayed That's on the tight side. Mainly the problem is getting from gate to gate. Frankfurt is airport is huge so it depends a bit how far the gates are apart. If both flights arrive/depart from Pier A (typically for Schengen flights), than it's ...

If they are on the same ticket (not self-transfer), should you miss the second flight due to no fault of your own, then the airline has to get you to your destination. If it's self-transfer, then you're on your own, and the Stockholm-Oslo return flight will probably be cancelled as well. As both Norway and Sweden are Schengen countries, you will clear ...

Okay, since I didn't get an answer, I would like to post my own with an update of my experience transferring there. First of all, the background information: I was flying SARAJEVO TO ISTANBUL and then ISTANBUL TO TOKYO (NARITA). My first flight was 36 MINUTES LATE. What you need to know is that the taxi time is ridiculously long, and we didn't even taxi at ...

British Airways states that your baggage will not be transferred between Heathrow and Gatwick and that you must do this yourself. Your baggage will not be automatically forwarded so please collect all your bags before leaving Heathrow or Gatwick airport. When you check in at Mumbai your bags will be checked to Heathrow. You will need to collect them at ...

Whether this is possible or not will depend on which airport Y is. In MOST US airports, once you land and collect your bags you will be fully landside - in exactly the same area of the airport you would have been if you were an arriving passenger in that city. In that case there's absolutely nothing stopping you from removing items from your luggage before ...

I’m assuming city X is outside of US and Y and Z are within US. The answer is yes. I have travelled from out of US to LAX or SFO and then transferred to another flight to other US cities. You do have to clear customs as soon as you arrive at city Y. Afterwards you are essentially out of the airport at city Y, with all of your bags, free to do whatever. You ...

The middle east hubs works in such manner: airplanes should land near at the same time, and depart at the same time. So you have all connecting flight ready (in one direction), so the airplane are on air most of the time, so cheap. On other hubs this is less evident: arrival on intercontinental flight are often not too late, so that there are connecting ...

For my first flight, I almost couldn't catch up the other flight due to delays, what compensation I could get? None. It's inconvenient to find that you have to rush across the airport to make a connection, but ultimately when you say you "almost couldn't catch" the flight what you mean is that you had to hurry but you did catch the flight. You aren't ...

Welcome. It may not be obvious to newcomers, but this site really encourages asking one single question per post. If you have multiple questions, post them separately. In my answer below, I'll address what I understood to be your main question; am I entitled to any compensation The airline got you to your final destination on time. That is really the only ...

Ryanair is working almost strictly point-to-point. With a very few exceptions, they simply don't do connecting tickets, which saves them all the hassle and costs with accomodating people who missed their connection and so on. I can't comment on the profitability of this approach, but the fact that most low-cost carriers work this way is an indication that it ...

The baggage drop for passengers clearing US customs is immediately past the customs officer, and before you exit the customs area into the arrival hall. I've never thought of not dropping it back into the system. Perhaps you could just remove the items from your bag at the baggage drop before you go into the arrivals hall? That would be a lot easier than ...
