      Traveling with my cat

      by SimbaandNicole Online Now Nov 25, 2014 at 8:58 AM

      I am traveling over the holidays from the US to Switzerland via Amsterdam Schiphol and reverse route back to the US.
      Do I have to go through customs with my cat in Schiphol either direction? Is one hour enough time to change flights with my cat?

      I am flying KLM from Sweden to Amsterdam and connecting with Aerlingus.
      Aerlingus don't print online boarding passes for Amsterdam so I have to go to check-in.
      I arrive at 1900hrs and departure is at 2030.
      I only have hand luggage.
      Is there enough time.

      Is two hours reasonable to transit from a flight on Delta from Seattle to AMS and then to SAS to Copenhagen?
      I was not sure if I have to go through passport control in Schiphol or just when I get to Denmark.

      We have a 5 hr layover in AMS, traveling on KLM/Delta on March 18th, 2014. I'll try to ensure my bags are checked through so we don't have to collect our checked bags. I've red that 4 hours is the minimum to safely exit AMS to see the city for an hour, and that you really need 6 hrs. Is 5 hrs to risky? We are Americans, DEL-AMS-DTW

I fly KLM from SG-AMS and have 2hrs interval before my flight to AMS-Cork via Aer Lingus. If I have checked-in baggage do I need to pass immigration to collect it and re check-in again? I have my schengen visa valid 3 days after when I return to AMS from Cork because they said I don't need any visa to transit. But I'm flying to different airlines and I'm not sure if they have codeshare flights. Help please?
