Air Canada luggage allowance when flying from Europe to USA

I’m having a very hard time understanding the luggage policy of Air Canada as it applies to my journey.

I read on its site that, according to some parameters (miles, airports, fidelity…) you have different types of luggage allowed by your flight ticket.

Assuming I’ll fly from Milan to Frankfurt via Lufthansa (on the same Air Canada itinerary), from Frankfurt to Toronto and from Toronto to Los Angeles. What is my luggage allowance on this ticket? Do I have a cabin bag, a hold bag?

I don’t find any useful information on its site or in its policy, perhaps because English is not my first language but I’m having difficulty planning for my luggage.

AirCanada Luggage from europe to USA

I’m having a very bad time understanding luggage policy of aircanada applied to my journey.
I read from their site that , accordingly to some parameters (miles,airports,fidelity…) you have different type of luggage in your flight ticket.

Assuming i’ll fly from Milan to Frankfurt via lufthansa (in the same AirCanda prenotations) , from Frankfurt to Toronto and from Toronto to Los Angeles, which is my “luggage plan” in the ticket? do I have a cabin bag? a hold bag?

I don’t find any useful information in their site or in their policy, probably cause english is not my first language but i’m having a real bad time planning my luggages,

Thank you

How long does it take for a SIM card to activate (Europe)?

I have been wondering whether or not to buy a new SIM card when I take side trips to countries bordering Germany (one for each country). However, I have heard that each time I get a new SIM card, it may take 24-48 hours to activate — in which case a 4-day trip to Austria, for instance, may not be worth it. Is this 24-48 hour rule true?

How does one go about doing a Ph.D. in Europe as an American?

I’m entering my senior year of college in the US and I’m starting to consider my options for graduate school next year. My field is kind of blurry, in that I have certain research areas that I’m interested in, but researchers in those areas often fall into many different fields (linguistics, cognitive psychology, neuroscience, psycholinguistics, etc.)

I have some faculty that I’m interested in working with, but I have a dilemma because some people (and schools) I’m interested in are in the US and some are in Europe.

I’ve been reading about how graduate school typically works in Europe, and it seems to be quite a different beast from the US. Many (practically all) Ph.D. programs in the US that I looked at are entered immediately after a Bachelor’s degree, they’re fully funded, and the two years of course work at the beginning is to earn the Master’s degree. On the other hand, all of the European programs I looked at vary greatly on how their funded (I’m so confused), and require a Master’s.

So this brings me to a lot of questions.

Are Master’s degrees in Europe funded? And what would happen if I would decided to get a Master’s degree in Europe but then come back to the United States for the Ph.D.? Is it possible to go straight into a European Ph.D. without a Master’s at all? (I’ll be graduating with 18 credits of graduate coursework and 27 credits of independent research).

Does anyone know of any good resources so I can figure out this situation?
