    i don't think so.......unless you mean that someone may have booked 2 separate legs with separate airlines in separate bookings...in which case the USA midway wouldn't arguably be 'transit' it would be 'destination' and you would have to pick up luggage and book into the next flight.to the next 'destination'..

    But if you have booked from A-B VIA USA airport with one booking, you will not have to collect your luggage in the USA airport if you are in transit from YYZ (toronto)

    I do not know the rules. I am just reporting what I was told, since we always ask when we check our bags.

    Your prior post (that I quoted) indicated that bags must be collected in the US on the way home. We have never done that when traveling via IAH. Our bags show up in YYZ.

    I'm not trying to hijack the thread, but I have a (somewhat) related question.

    I am flying out of YYZ to LAS soon and will be connecting through LAX. After I go through US Customs and Immigration and security in Toronto, if I pick up something at the Duty Free will I be able to keep it with me at my connection in LA? Part of me would think that as long as I don't leave the secure area in LAX I should be OK. Part of me says no, you can't take it on the connecting flight.

    Has anyone had any actual experience with this?

    (Of course the easy answer is to simply wait till I get to my destination.)

    I'll just add that what is 'allowed' in a rescheduling situation tends to be very dependent on who you're talking to. Sometimes it's worth a second call and it often helps to have exactly the flights you want in hand. I frequently book very early and grab the 'too good to be true' fares with US carriers - these are the most likely to get shuffled around as they finalize schedules. I've almost always been able to improve my situation after a schedule change with a call or two to their booking lines. Usually I'm going the other way though - trying to shorten up long/overnight layovers. I've found United to be slightly less painful to deal with than American and I'm now avoiding Delta at all costs.

    Same. Returning, it's a different story. You need to claim your stuff at your first US destination and recheck it through security.

    At the risk of stating the obvious, why don't you call the airline?
