    What does "obtain" mean here?

    If your flight is delayed or your luggage is lost these can be difficult to obtain in an airport or foreign county.

    Re: What does "obtain" mean here?

    I imagine 'these'refers to something mentioned in the previous sentence. If so, 'obtain' has its normal dictionary meaning.

    It means get or acquire.
