    with you

    You canít take your luggage trolley through the custom.
    Take a look at my next sentence. Can I also say it this way?

    See above. That area of an airport is not called "the custom" (look up the definition of "custom"); it's called "Customs" because the people who work in it are "Customs Officers".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: with you

    Hi and many thanks!!!

    Believe it or not I got the first sentence entirely from my Langenscheidt textbook! That's unbelievable.

    Sometimes you try some things in English and get a complete other result than expected.

    Always good to be on your forum.

    Re: with you

    Yes, you can add "with you" to your sentence, but it doesn't really add any information.
