A non-direct or “connecting” flight involves changing aircraft. In the transit airport, you will be invited to go to the transit area to continue your trip on a new aircraft (belonging to Corsair or one of its partner companies).
When arriving at the connecting airport all you have to do is to go to your next gate and wait for the next plane, your next flight. There might be a security check in the terminal at the connecting airport. But mostly you don't have to do anything about your luggage. It's being taken care of by the airport personnel.Feb 11, 2019
A connecting flight will take at least two different planes with two different flight numbers to reach your final destination. A direct flight makes at least one intermediate stop along the way to its final destination but has only one flight number.
The answer is yes and no. Most airlines don't offer cheaper airfare at the airport. Airlines like Southwest give their customers the cheapest flight directly on their site, while you might be able to find a good deal on American, Delta, and United via sites like Kayak or Google Flights.Oct 31, 2018
Everyone has to clear immigration at their first point of entry in the US. It doesn't matter whether you're terminating your travel at that point, connecting domestically, or connecting internationally. All passengers have to clear immigration and customs at their first point of entry in the US.Sep 13, 2016
