For the purpose of immigration all of Schengen can be considered on "country", and flights between countries in within the Schengen area operate pretty much the way domestic flights do elsewhere. Within the Schengen area such flights are called "internal" flights. Airport in the Schengen zone have usually two areas, an "International ...

Your ticket will specify whether you may bring one bag or two bags. If your ticket allows one bag, the bag must weigh 30kg or less. If your bag weighs more than 30kg, you will be charged extra. If your ticket allows one bag and you bring two bags, you will be charged for the additional bag. Each bag must be less than 30kg; if either bag weighs more than 30kg,...

Assuming that you are allowed to take 2 bags according to your ticket, you will have to pay for excess baggage for any additional weight over 30Kg According to the Qatar Airways Excess Baggage page, in the section on flying to Africa, these fees range from $USD15Kg to $USD45/Kg depending on where you start your journey. You stated you want to take 2 x 23Kg ...

It isn't a 30kg limit on each bag. It's a 30kg limit on one bag. So no, you would not be allowed to proceed with two 23kg bags.

Transiting through Narita without passing immigration requires the flights to be on the same calendar day. The next day is not the same calendar day. Narita is not open 24 hours, which is why you cannot do this. You will need to go to immigration, request a shore pass, and leave the airport. This is allowed if your connecting flight is within 72 hours. Note ...

Domestic US only, but... About 10 years ago, I had customers in both Las Vegas and Silicon Valley (flying to San Jose CA, south of San Francisco). I'm based in the Dallas area. The cheapest flight to San Jose was through Las Vegas (so I flew mostly west to Las Vegas, and then mostly west to San Jose). But, the cheapest flight to Las Vegas, oddly enough, ...

I discovered last year that this even happens when you do not expect it. I was scheduled for a flight from Phoenix to Oakland. I arrived earlier then expected and was offered an earlier flight. To my surprise, there was a stopover in Portland...

This happened to me once. It wasn't as extreme as your example, but it just proves that it happens. I was in Cotonou, Benin and wanted to get back to Lebanon. The only flight I found was on Turkish airlines. We took off from Cotonou, stopped in Abidjan, Ivory Coast - this was just a technical stop, we didn't have to go down from the ariplane. Second stop ...

For your particular example, probably not unless you book the individual legs yourself, simply because it's so far out of the way and it's highly unlikely that there isn't a nearer airport with flights to Tokyo that you could fly to first. In general though, it's not hugely unusual to go rather out of the way to get somewhere. I flew to Athens Greece (ATH) ...

This is very frequent in Canada. There are a limited number of international destinations from Halifax, Nova Scotia (YHZ). However, with the exception of Newfoundland, it is the most eastern major city in Canada. So, if you are looking to fly east from Halifax, you would fly west to a larger city like Montreal or Toronto, and then onward to your next ...

I couldn't find a routing through Paris, but you can easily go from Delhi to Tokyo through Dubai on Emirates. That about 3.5 hours in pretty much the opposite direction.

Yes, and it is often done. Not often so extreme as in your case, but it is possible, and I think I saw this few times in questions in this site (people that did it, not as duplicate of your question) Air France (as example, as in your question) has a hub in Paris. If they want to have you as their passenger, they must allow such fares. And baggage will be ...

If the airport has a transit corridor (which Paris-CDG does), and your nationality doesn't require an airport transit visa, then yes, you can transit. However, for France, you'll need to complete and print this form, to show the airline during boarding. Select this option: Ressortissant de pays tiers, en transit de moins de 24 heures en zone internationale ...

That's correct. They need to enter the US to transit the US, an they cannot enter the US if they've been in Mainland China, Iran, the Schengen Area, the UK, Ireland, or Brazil in the previous 14 days, unless one of the exceptions apply to them (which is unlikely).

The title implies (but doesn't state directly) that the boyfriend flew from Argentina to the UK. Arriving in the UK, he was denied entry. Because he's now detained, UK Border Force will want the boyfriend to depart for Argentina, where UKBF is confident he'll be admitted. Because the boyfriend was found not admissible to the UK, UKBF will not release him to ...
