I am arriving SQ 324 at 7:15am from Singapore and have a Vueling connection to Barcelona VY8301 at 10.10 do I have enough time with checked baggage?
That will be really difficult, but not impossible if everything goes perfectly.
I am arriving on a Delta flight from US at 8:45 AM and need to catch an 11:20 Air Croatia flight. They are two seperate tickets. Is that enough time to make the connection? Can I check in for the Air croatia flight at the gate or do I need to go out to the ticketing desk?

That should be enough time. If you have no checked bags then yes, you can check in at the Croatia Airlines transfer desk or gate.
I would like to know if a 55 min connection will be sufficient to connect from a KLM flight which arrives at AMS to an Air Europe flight which goes to Madrid. Both were sold by klm on the same ticket. What happens with our luggage. I wonder if they will be able to send us to our destination properly.thanks for your help
Where are you flying into Amsterdam from?
from Argentina
Then that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly. Your bags should go straight through to Madrid if both flights are on the same reservation.
We will be arriving from the US at 5:40 am and plan to spend some time at the Yodel Hotel at the airport. Our connecting flight to Rome leaves at 11:50 am. Will we need to go through passport control on our way to the Yodel? Also, what time should we leave the Yodel to make it to our flight that leaves at 11:50? thanks so much.
I am a US citizen with a 7:10 am flight from Schiphol to Edinburgh (will be checking bags). The earliest sprinter train from my hotel area arrives Schiphol at 5:32 am. Does this allow enough time to complete all steps to make flight?
Yes, that should be enough time.
I will be flying into Amsterdam from Toronto. How long does it take to get through customs, pick up luggage, etc. My flight arrives at 10:15 and I need to get a bus to Movenpick. Also, how far in advance must you be at airport when flying out internationally for the return trip. Thank you for your assistance.
I will be arriving AMS on Delta from the U.S. My flight arrives at 9:05 a.m. and a driver is picking me up at 10:00 a.m. Will I be able to collect my baggage and go through customs in enough time?
Yes, that should be enough time.
Thank you for the quick response
I will be arriving on KLM from Canada and will connect with KLM to the UK. I want to stay at the YOTEL in the terminal. Will I need to go through passport control, either before or after my YOTEL stay?
No, the YOTEL is in the international transit area.
How long does it usually take to check in AMS if Schengen to Schengen?
You can theoretically show up an hour before the flight, but I'd recommend a little more time.

I have a U.S. passport that expires in July and I wanted to know if I'll have to go through customs/passport check when I layover at AMS...flying in from Cape Town...on my way back to the U.S. I'm confused about the 3 months/6 months rules. Thanks for any insight!
There will be no passport control in Amsterdam since you are not entering the Schengen Area.
I always tell my clients to renew if their passport is close to the 6 month mark. You won't have a problem in Amsterdam but you'll have a problem in Cape Town get on the first flight if they don't like the date on your passport.
