My son who is 17 is travelling back from South Carolina alone on Sunday next. Is it possible for him to get airport assistance in Dallas and Heathrow airport.
American Airlines from savannah to Dallas and air lingus from Heathrow to shannon
Assistance with what?
There are several gaps there, how is he getting from South Carolina to Savannah and how is he getting from Dallas to Heathrow?
Either way, is the assistance required just because he is an inexperienced traveler? If so, he should be fine if he just asks airline/airport staff for guidance as to where to go for his next flight etc. He will be an adult in a few months!
Are his flights all booked on the one ticket?
Connections are very straightforward.
At Dallas it's almost certain that the flight to Heathrow will go from Concourse D. If he doesn't arrive into Concourse D, which is likely for a flight from SAV, there are two Skylink train stations in each concourse. Although DFW is a very large airport it is very easy to get around. There is no need to reclear security.
At Heathrow he will land at Terminal 3. Follow the purple signs for Flight Connections and then those signs for Terminal 2 whilst in the Flight Connections phase.
It's really very easy and tens of thousands of people a day make these connections with no issues.
Bringing him from A to B. When he arrives in Dallas helping him get to where he supposed to go. Terminal gate at and in Heathrow he has to get from terminal 5 to 2 with luggage and drop off.
Hang on, he is traveling from Savannah to Dallas and then to Heathrow?? Have you looked at this on a map?
We know nothing about your son, but unless he needs special assistance, he likely will be capable of reading signs, asking at information desks and will be directed appropriately. 17 year olds can be exceptionally independent when they have to be, even at Heathrow. Good luck to the boy!
Wow! Look at all those fast responses that got posted as I was typing.
17 years old and you want assistance for him? wow ! give him some responsibility.
