  • Enough time?

    Son arrives FLL from Costa Rica on Wed 5:56 am, flight to ATL leaves at 7:31 am. All flights Spirit and all reservations made at same time. Will he be able to make the ATL flight? Can he check his bags all the way through to ATL or does he have to claim his luggage & go through customs then recheck (yes he checked bag) for ATL flight? Thanks for any help.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. His bag will be tagged through to ATL but he will have to claim it in FLL to go through US Customs, then re-check it at the re-check desk immediately after.

    We arrive at Fll at 2:54 jet blue and our connection on Southwest leaves at 4:25, one checked bag for each of 3 people. Any chance we make it?

     

    Yes, I think that should be barely possible if the first flight is on-time and domestic.

    HI My husband and I will be arriving on a Silver Eagles Flight from Key West scheduled to arrive at Terminal 1 at 5:04 and have a connecting Delta flight from Terminal 2 scheduled to depart at 5:55 PM....can I make it? What about bags we are checking just 1 per passenger? Any advice?

     

    Did you purchase your tickets on the same reservation or separate. If separate you will not make that connection. In fact there is a very good chance you will miss your connection even if you purchased them on the same reservation because Silver Airways flights are late more often than they are on-time.

    hi I am traveling from caracas to fort lauderdale caribbean airlines, the flight arrives at 4:38 pm and then the second flight with american airlines departs to dallas at 6:37 pm and checked bags is enough time ? I am minor, I travel without unaccompanied

     

    That should be barely enough time. if your bags aren't tagged through to your final destination by Caribbean you will have to re-check them at the AA check-in desk and pay a checked bag fee, so be sure that you are carrying a credit or debit card that works in the US as they do not accept cash.

    I am looking at flights to Lima with a layover at FLL. Is 1.5 hour layover enough for customs? Particularly considering the flight gets in at ~5AM. There should be very little line right?

     

    Yes, assuming both tickets are on the same reservation that should be enough time.

    Is a 3 hour layover enough time to get from a Delta flight in terminal 2 to a Jet Blue flight in terminal 3??

     

    Forgot to add that we have checked bags

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

    I am fly out of ACY on Spirit Airlines arriving in FLL at 9:39am. However i have a second flight at 10:40am on Silver Airways via United that departs FLL at 10:40am. as long as originating flight is ontime, will I have enough time to get from terminal 4 to terminal 1. What is the best way to get to terminal 1 from 4?

     

    The best way from T4 to T1 is probably the rental car shuttle. However this is a very very difficult connection, bordering on impossible. Luckily many Silver Airways flights are delayed, so if you check in online for your Silver Airways flight maybe you'll "luck out" and your Silver Airways flight will be delayed.

     

    Thank you. Was wondering if going straight thru parking garage to T2 then T1 would be faster than the shuttle. This is the 6th time this fligt has changed and travel dates are for November. Flight time keep getting shorter and shorter. May be easier just to drive to the keys.

    I arrive at 3:30 pm on a Southywest flight, and then depart at 5:30 pm on a Jet Blue flight. Is 2 hours enough time if I have no checked baggage? How about with checked bags? Thanks.

     

    2 hours is definitely possible without checked bags. With checked bags it would be a bit difficult and depends on your Southwest flight being on-time.

    I am arriving on a Jetblue flight from LGA to FLL at 9:25am and have a departing Spirit flight to Punta Cana at 10:30am. I think that's a terminal 3 to terminal 4 connection. Is that enough time? Not checking any bags. Is secruity in Terminal 4 pretty crazy during that time?

     

    You'll have to run and hope your JetBlue flight is on-time.

    Hello! What is the quickest way to get from terminal 3 to terminal 1 for a connection? Would you say walking is the best bet, or would it be a better idea just to talk the rental car shuttle? Thanks for your help!

     

    Walking is probably faster. It's not a short walk from T1 to where the rental car shuttle departs.

     

    Thanks so much ZAP!

    I want to book a flight from PTY to LGA, the layover in FLL is 1,05h. Both flights are with spirit (Flightnr 914 -and 604) Is that enough time? Do i have to recheck my checked luggage and go trough costums in FLL?

     

    Yes, in FLL you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security. 65 minutes is well under what I would recommend, but if Spirit sold you the ticket they think you can make it. At least Spirit has multiple flights from FLL to LGA if you miss your connection.

    Hey there...my friend is trying to make a connection from Southwest flight arriving at 3:30 to connect with a 5:00 Avianca flight to Bogota...maybe a checked bag ...thanks so much!

     

    With a checked bag that would be very very difficult to claim your bag and get to Terminal 4 before the bag check cutoff at Avianca.

     

  • 2 hour layover, United to Spirit..Is this Possible?

    We arrive at 10:56 on United (Terminal 1) and will depart at 12:55 on Spirit (Terminal 4). No checked bags, carryon only and will check in online the day before with Spirit. Will we have enough time to make connecting flight and what is best way to get to T4 from T1? Can you walk across the airport between buildings or do you have to walk around on the curb?

     

    you have to walk around the curb or take the Rental Car shuttle to T4. It's possible if your first flight is on-time.

    My flight would be landing at FLL from DFW at 9:46 AM and departing at 10:40, both flights on Spirit. That just seems really tight, but it is possible seeing as they're in the same terminal?

     

    Yes, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. It's very doable if your flight from DFW is on-time.

     

    Same flight...wondering the same thing!
