    Checked Baggage First Timer Delta Airlines Canada To US? I am travelling to the United States (coming from Canada) to visit a friend in January. I have taken Delta Airlines each time I have gone down (two previous occasions), however I have never done checked baggage before. I have always only take a carry on bag with me, but this time my trip is lasting longer and so I want to have a checked bag for all my needs. Simple enough and makes sense, right? Problem is, I’m confused as to how this process works.

    My flight has one connection in Minneapolis and I was wondering, do they just transfer my checked baggage from my first plane to the other? Or is this something I need to do myself? I have a 3 hour layover, so I have plenty of time to panic about it in the airport later, haha.

    I was also wondering if on my return flight (once again there is a connection in Minneapolis) is the process the same?

    I’d check the Delta website, but they don’t have the answers I’m looking for. It’s all about sizes, expenses and what you’re allowed in the baggage.

    Any and all information regarding this, for a first timer like me, is greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

      You almost certainly go through US Immigration and Customs (Pre-Clearance) before departing Canada so you just go to the gate for the onward flight at MSP. Delta will automatically transfer your luggage.

      In the event you somehow don’t go through Pre-Clearance in Canada you exit the aircraft on arrival at MSP and go to passport control. Then collect your luggage (carts are available) and take it to the Customs checkpoint. The officer there will almost certainly just take your stamped Customs form and wave you on. Interline Baggage is just past Customs and you give your luggage back to the airline at that point. You don”t have to check-in again. Then walk to the gate for your onward flight.

      There are no passport controls or Customs when exiting the USA. You give your luggage to Delta at the first airport and collect it on arrival in Canada.

    How To Survive A 14 Hour Plane Ride? Just what it sounds like. Going from Beirut to Qatar, then Qatar to New York. The second flight is 14 hours. I managed to get window seats but what can I do to avoid opening the doors and jumping out from being driven crazy

      Suggestions for a long flight:

      Join the frequent flier program for the airline, unless you already belong to a “partner” program. Joining is free and you can do it online.

      Check http://www.seatguru.com for seat suggestions. I usually try to get a window seat on really long flights and gather some extra pillows & blankets to make a “bed” to lean against. Call the airline and request a seat as early as allowed. Also ask if the aircraft has power ports that you can use for i-Pod, etc.

      Consider buying membership, a one-day pass or multi-day pass to the airline’s lounges (if offered). An example is Delta’s SkyClub: http://www.delta.com/traveling_checkin/airport_information/delta_sky_club/index.jsp

      Priority Pass also gives access to airline lounges all over the world: http://www.prioritypass.com/

      Airlines try to provide good on-board entertainment on long flights, and seat-back video is now almost standard on long flights. Airlines also try to provide decent meals on long flights. Check with the airline to find out what will be available on your flight. For example:

      http://www.delta.com/traveling_checkin/inflight_services/index.jsp

      Consider getting a sleep mask (ex. http://www.mindfold.com) and some earplugs, which may help you sleep (they work for me). Luggage stores and airport shops also sell sleep masks but they are not as good as the Mindfold type. Try to sleep – even if it isn’t very good sleep.

      I-Pods and portable game devices are great on planes, but the batteries won’t last more than a few hours. Pack one or more books that you have started, or that are from an author you know. It’s really annoying to realize – too late – the book you brought for the flight isn’t a good read. Other options are crossword puzzles and similar. A laptop is practical IF the aircraft is equipped with power ports (which can also re-charge an i-Pod or game device).

      Pack a complete change of clothes and basic toiletries in your carryon bag. Check the security requirements at: http://www.tsa.gov

      Dress in comfortable clothes and shoes that are not too tight (or overly casual). Your feet will swell during a long flight and tight clothes can make it harder to sleep.

      I try to shower just before leaving to go to the airport. It reduces the grungy feeling you get by the end of a long flight.

      Tag all of your bags (inside and outside) with your name, e-mail address (but not your home address) and a complete phone number someone will answer. The free tags from the check-in counter are fine.

      Make sure you have your passport or ID and other documents on you before leaving home.

      Get to the airport 2 full hours before departure unless the airline recommends arriving earlier.

      You can take something to help you sleep, but try it first. Many meds can leave you groggy long after you need to be awake. I just use aspirin.

      Chewing gum can help with relieving the pressure in your ears.

      Drink lots of water and juice: The air in the cabin is very dry and causes dehydration. Avoid too many drinks with caffeine (including colas) or alcohol as they can increase the dehydration.

      Get up and stretch every few hours.

      Try to awaken about an hour before the flight crew serves the arrival meal/snack and use the bathroom to wash up. Also maybe change clothes. You will feel a lot better.

      The time change can be a problem, and a long flight will produce a lot of “jet-lag”. At your destination, try very hard to eat meals at local times and stay awake until local bedtime. If you MUST take a nap, then sleep for no more than 3 hours. Falling asleep at 3:00pm may result in you waking up at Midnight – wide awake and unable to go back to sleep.

      I hope you have a great trip!

    Best Way To Get Low Airfare? LAX To Osaka(Japan)? I checked on skyscanner and expedia and it showed me the cheapest flight to Osaka, Japan, is 520 dollars that is including taxes for January 28th 2013. This is through Delta Airlines.

    Is there any websites or promotions I can use or add to my flight itinerary to make my flight cheaper? Thank you!
