Of course, we'll consider that the itinerary is on a single ticket/booking, otherwise of course you have to retrieve your bags when switching from one booking to the next. Luggage tag will show the layover point in that case. The same applies if you actually have a stopover and not a layover, of course. Luggage tag will show the stopover point. The same ...

There are two cases: Your layover isn't a layover, but rather a separate ticket. Or, for some other reason, your luggage is "short checked" to an intermediate destination. In this case, it is your responsibility to get the bags. The check-in agent will tell you. Your best protection against incorrect information is to read the destination on the tag ...

Since New Delhi and Mumbai are both in India, that portion of the flight will be domestic. Assume that most passengers of this domestic flight will also be leaving the airport. You should ask the Airline to get a reliable answer about your luggage. The longer the layover, the less likly such a transfer of luggage will take place. It also depends on how the ...

Definitely worthwhile to look into the airport lounges. Depending on your budget, some offer very comfortable seating, where you can even take a nap, a hot shower, free snacks and beverages, and even a meal. The lounge I used had facilities equivalent to a luxury hotel. Certain credit cards give you benefits and discounts in some of the lounges, but they ...

For the KLM "Animal Hotel" for pets transported in the cargo hold by Air France/KLM, then no, that area is part of the airline's cargo facility and does not appear to be open to the public. Even if the airline was able to grant you a special exception, accessing the facility would require leaving the secure area of the terminal, which would require passing ...

Consider going to Macau: It seems that the risk the OP is mentioning for not leaving Hong Kong Airport is the 2019 Hong Kong protests. While that risk is in reality pretty close to none, if you still do not wish to enter Hong Kong, then you can instead go to Macau. Macau is quite small so within ~10 hours you'll have easily seen most major landmarks. One ...

Hong Kong is a very beautiful and unique city. Thirteen hours makes a nice amount of time to explore -- Especially if you've never been before, I think it would be a mistake to skip entirely just because protests are happening. Allow yourself extra time to return before your flight, and go out during daylight if possible. You might avoid wearing black, ...

While I understand your reluctance to go to downtown Hong Kong at this time, one of the major tourist attractions is right by the airport. You can get there without entering or passing through any of the main commercial, educational or similar areas that have been the focus of protest, or taking public transit. The attraction is the Ngong Ping cable car ...

You could sleep in a "relaxation chamber" ... which is not the same as checking into a hotel; nor is it one of the airport lounges. Quoting from the Sleeping in Airports guide for Hong Kong: Refreshhh by Aerotel – Location: Terminal 1, Airside, near Gates 35 and 60. Private “relaxation cabins” for single passengers that can rented in blocks of 1 – 6 ...

There are more options of restaurants etc. (at generally better prices) if you pass through security and immigration. Only passengers can enter the terminal at the moment (documents and tickets are checked outside the terminal building) so there is very little chance of disruption within the terminal buildings. You’re a few days too early to see Lion King ...

Since you mention Canada, let's take Canada as an example. If you are flying to Winnipeg, but your flight has a 'layover' in Toronto (a pretty frequent occurrence) then you would clear immigration in Toronto. Once you have cleared immigration you go to the domestic terminal and board the flight from Toronto to Winnipeg, along with all the other people who ...

There isn't much to do nearby the airport, in terms of tourist attractions, and given your short time frame, I would probably stay put. Rushing to the Acropolis is just not worth it, as the lines are long to enter and you could spend days there just soaking in all the history and walking around. According to this article, there are 8 things to do on a ...

Should be ok. If you bought this as a single ticket then it's a legal connection and the airline will take care of you, if you miss it (unless it's your fault). This being said, the official website of Dublin airport lists the minimum connection time as 90 minutes. See https://www.dublinairport.com/flight-information/connections/connection-guide, so it's ...
