My mother, she is 80, and I will be flying from Minneapolis (Delta Airlines) to Kelowna BC (Air Canada) this November. This is our first international flight. I understand about going through customs, but my questions are-do we go to the actual baggage claim to get our luggage or is luggage left at customs for us to pick up? after clearing customs do we leave our luggage at customs so we can catch the next flight? are there electric carts to ride on to our next gate, if it is far from customs? and is 1 hour and 20 minutes going to be enough time between flights?
I thought this would be an exciting trip and now that our reservations are made and I have been doing some investigating about exactly how to get through customs, I'm getting worried about not making the next flight and also that it may be too much for my mother.
