Connceting flight Houston to Orlando

Way back on the 13th Aug 2019 we booked an Air NZ flight from Auckland NZ to Orlando via Houston. I have just noticed that in one of the flight changes that occurred in December our connecting flight Houston to Orlando is now three days later, ie 7th April 2020. I must have looked at the time change only and not the day never dreaming it would be three days later. Now when I look on the United website there doesn’t seem to be any connecting flights on the 4th April. Not sure what our plan is now! Any suggestions appreciated. We have a VRBO booked in Orlando from 4th April – 11th April.

Is This Enough Time in LAX ???

I’m considering a flight that is scheduled to arrive LAX 2:05pm nonstop from Qatar. I’m considering booking a separate ticket (on Delta, nonstop to Lihue) that would leave LAX 5:45pm. That leaves me 3 hours and 10 minutes to clear customs and get to the gate 30 minutes before take-off. I plan to have carry-on only (a rolling bag). I have Global Entry and TSA pre-check. Would I have to go through security again? Does this seem like enough time?

FYI, there are flights that leave later, but they have long stops in HNL and I don’t want that.

My only other viable option is to overnight at an LAX hotel and fly to LIH the next day.

Thoughts???

Thanks!

Business Class tix on American do not always allow lounge access


I had purchased the business tickets partly due to the AA lounge access in the early morning hours while awaiting flight from MIA to Merida. There was not a huge difference in price since the flights were only about two hours both ways.

My mistake!!! We were denied access to the AA VIP Lounge; they allow lounge access only to certain destinations and MID is not one of them. When we checked in for our flight, checking one bag, the agent assured us that lounge access was included. Imagine my surprise, after trekking through the nightmare of MIA, to be deniced entry to the lounge.

Heads up! If you are buying a ticket for a business class flight mainly for the lounge, make sure, first, that you can actually enter the lounge! You know what “assume” means!

Manage booking Air Canada flight

My daughter and family are coming home for Christmas (Nelson New Zealand), leaving on Tuesday 17th Dec 2019. my 18 month old grandson is travelling as a lap passenger and DD wants to check he is getting an infant meal. She has asked me to check!!! Anyway I tried to go into manage booking but you seem to need a password and an Aeroplan number. When the booking was made I don’t think she registered for Aeroplan.

With Air New Zealand you just need to put in a booking reference and the family name to be able to log in. Doesn’t seem to be the case with Air Canada. Apparently there was a change in the reservation system in November. Any help appreciated.

Can't change seats on Iberia flight

My husband and I are flying Madrid – JFK (home) on Jan. 19th. Booked on AA but Iberia is the air company. I had to pay for seat assignment, so I did. However, when I recently looked at the seat plan of the plane I realized that my husband and I have seats in the middle and are separated by a seat between us. (There are four across). Additionally, there are two seats together at the window areas on the sides aavailable. Many of them. When I first chose seats this was NOT the configuration. Had it been, I would have chosen the two seats together rather than in the middle.
Anyway, I called Iberia to change them to aisle/window and I was told I couldn’t over the phone and I could only change them at the airport. Who knows if there will even be seats we want once we go the airport on the day we fly? Or, I was told, I could pay for the new seats. In other words, I would be paying twice for seats.

I have never heard of this policy. Can someone explain? The customer service agent over the phone couldn’t.

Best/Most Decent Business Class Intra-Europe?

Fiance and I are planning to fly between DUB – VIE in May. We’re going to bite the bullet & take Laudamotion (Anyone taken them lately? Care to say how it was?) there, as they have a nonstop. But, on the return, we’re going to have to take one of the other carriers & connect somewhere. Here in the States, when you fly Business/First, you get a bigger seat & more room. But, it appears in Europe, all you get is a Coach seat with the middle seat blocked out.

That said, if you wanted more room, is it worth it to pay for Business or just get Coach & try to score the exit row? And, if you were flying this leg & wanted to go Business, who would you recommend?

And, last question: Did Ryanair/Easyjet kill other carriers offering a decent Business class product? Why aren’t European carriers’ intra-Europe Business class a REAL Business class?

Thanks!

Can I make this work

I have never flown through LAX but I will be traveling to LA for a Steelers game on the weekend of October 13th. I fly into LA on Sunday and leave Wednesday at 1:45 pm on American flight 2543. I plan on flying out of LAX on Monday to Vegas and flying back in on Delta flight that is suppose to arrive at 12:22 p.m.

So my question is do I have enough time for my American flight leaving at 1:45 p.m. if my Delta flight gets there at 12:22 p.m.
