Question: How does the boarding process work if the A/C is a continuation from another destination? Do PAX have to deboard before continuing on to the final destination, or will joining PAX be boarding an A/C will those people (e.g., flying BOM-ATL)?
|Quoting LH648 (Reply 3):|
Don't know about DL, but on LH flight you will stay in the plane.
|Quoting Cubsrule (Reply 1):|
There may be some folks aboard DL 721 if there's no aircraft change (I can't remember how DL handles continuations), but likely not many since it's possible to fly PHL-JAX direct on Scareways.
|Quoting ChiGB1973 (Reply 8):|
The only same plane service I have done with DL was ATL-SNN with the stop in DUB. We didn't have to clear customs until SNN.
|Quoting Drewwright (Reply 10):|
Another factor is the possibility of a crew or equipment swap. A continuing flight number does not guarantee that the crew or aircraft will remain the same. In fact, there is a pretty good chance that at least a crew swap will occur in ATL.
|Quoting BosWashSprStar (Reply 4):|
Sometimes on domestic-only continuing flights they will let people stay aboard, if it's (scheduled to be) a very short turnaround.
|Quoting EWRCabincrew (Reply 11):|
For those customers boarding in DUB to ATL (with the stop in SNN), all customers must get off in SNN and the plane goes through a security check (this includes carry-on). When we have our "wrap" flight (EWR-DUB-SNN-EWR), all customers do the same in SNN.
US regs require that all US bound flights go through a security check at the last point before going to the US. This case SNN for the DL flight (ATL-DUB-SNN-ATL)
|Quoting ChiGB1973 (Reply 15):|
I flew EI, SNN-DUB-ORD and we did not get off the plane in DUB. That was 03/16/2004, unless regulations have changed or they do not apply to foreign carriers?
|Quoting Nickstyro (Reply 2):|
Typically at any scheduled stop and continuation of the same tail, the Pax will be deplaned and re-board at a later time. This is mainly to give Ramp and Commissary crews time to service the aircraft without having to work around passengers.
I mean would you want to sit on a plane for 45min watching workers service the lav and stock the galley?
