You misunderstand what a flight ticket is. You didn't rent seat 22A from city X to city Y, free to do with it as you like, absolutely not. What you have at hand is a contract between the airline and you which has certain conditions binding each party. The airline is bound to transfer you between certain points (edit: at a certain time) and for this you ...

Since there are no Visa issues in this case, the only thing left to wonder is whether the airlines will allow her to board or not. That depends upon each airline so you have to individually go through their own terms to see. It looks like 32 weeks is generally the limit but this is not something that can be generalized. For medical conditions different ...

As you've noticed, visa rules can be extremely complicated, and there are often differences that hinge on very specific details. They're also subject to change at any time. As a result, virtually every airline disclaims all responsibility for visa requirements. For example, this from Delta's contract of carriage (most airlines have similar language, ...

In addition to the "better safe than sorry" case, I finally found a link which makes it explicitly clear: http://www.iatatravelcentre.com/SA-Saudi-Arabia-customs-currency-airport-tax-regulations-details.htm Prohibited (also for transit passengers): alcoholic beverages, firearms or other lethal weapons; drugs of narcotic nature (except medicines for ...

SV775 COK-RUH arrives at terminal 2 according to flightstats. SV117 RUH-LHR also departs terminal 2 but I could only see that by searching google. According to expertflyer (requires subscription or free trial), the Minimum Connection Time (MCT) for an international to international connection at RUH is 1:30, however SV connections to SV at terminal 2 appear ...

On their website it says "SAUDIA does not serve or permit passengers to carry or drink alcoholic beverages on its flights." http://www.saudia.com/HOW-CAN-WE-HELP/More-Information/Terms-and-Conditions/SAUDIA-Terms-Conditions-Passenger-Advice-Notices-Liability#11430b3f2a847210VgnVCM1000001f64e80aRCRD I read that as meaning you may not have alcohol checked in ...

No; you will not. You may face extra scrutiny based on your travel profile, but definitely not the airline - you also cannot "fix" your travel profile by flying on Emirates, Gulf, Etihad, Kuwait Airways or Qatar Airways in lieu of Saudi Arabian Airlines. You will be scrutinized just as anyone else would based on your unique profile; the details of which ...

From the CATSA website: Note the "declare the items for inspection". They will likely want to do further checking on the milk (ie. open the container, do swabs, and so on) to make sure it's not something harmful. It should also be not more than an appropriate amount for the length of the trip.

To share a personal anecdote, I was able to change date of a return two-leg flight by Etihad. I had to pay ~$150 for that privilege via online system. The ticket in question was $600. I understand that large UAE carriers are much more flexible than the usual pseudo-monopoly flag carriers, but it doesn't hurt to try. Try contacting the airline to see what ...

I called two persons who work for Saudia (ticketing agents), they both said adding the first name in both fields should work, one of them said he would add "MR" as the first name and then add the only name as the last name, either way it should work. They also mentioned there is no clear policy regarding this and it might be confusing for people, but once ...

You have three issues: Can you get it through the security checkpoint in Pearson, or buy it after security in Pearson? If the child is less than 24 months you can bring it through security, and it doesn't need to be in a clear bag either. I think small milk cartons are your best bet - 250 ml, 500 ml, 1 L as you think you need them. At Pearson I'm pretty ...

Yes. Usually you can change the passport and validity (and other data). Often such data is not mandatory on booking time. Just check carefully when you should put the definitive data. If there is advanced personal information which are sent to destination country. It can vary from few hours (so at checkin) to few days before departure. Just you should be ...

Missing middle names are mostly irrelevant, don’t worry about that part. You should worry about the misspelled last name; depending on the agent at check-in, you might not be allowed to board. You may be able to convince him/her that it is a simple misspelling, but then maybe not. I recommend you call the airline now, explain the issue, and have them ...

If the trip is in a single booking, you do not need to collect the luggage. It gets automatically transferred to your connecting flight, so you only have to go to the next gate.

You are more than okay with the transit time because: Jeddah is the main hub for Saudia; so there are plenty of connecting flights (in case you miss your connection). You don't have to go through customs and immigration; there is no airside transit visas or such formalities in Saudi Arabia. The terminal is huge, but easily navigable. You may have to resort ...

If you bought it as one ticket, then it will be sufficient, but it looks a bit tight. (Although I expect it's a common connection.) The airline will re-accommodate you if you miss the connection. The minimum connect time in this circumstance is 1 hour 30 minutes. Int-Int on SV at JED: STANDARD.D/D...D/I...I/D...I/I. ONLINE 1.15 2.30 2.30 1.30 OFFLINE ...
