  • Delta just changed my flight and I need some help.
    Mar 21, 2017
    I arrive on JetBlue at 2:40 on a Wednesday from MBJ, have flight to Atlanta on Delta at 4:00 . Is this possible and should I plan on carry on bags if I can.


    With carry-ons only I think that's possible. but slightly risky.


    Thank you for reply, I am going to download Mobile Passport and hope that will speed up .. a little.


  • Can I make this?
    Mar 21, 2017
    SouthWest Airlines (terminal 1) arrives at 3:30 pm and departing on Caribbean Airlines (terminal 4) which is international at 5:20 pm. Is the possible?


    With checked bags that would be pretty difficult.


  • Can I make a connection?
    Mar 20, 2017
    Arriving from MSP on AA at 1:51pm with a flight to MHH Silver Airways (marsh harbor, bahamas) at 3:20pm. We are checking bags, can we get bag, clear security and make international connection?


    AA does not fly from MSP to FLL, however, if that arrival time is correct, you should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will have to go from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1.


  • FLL Terminal 3 to 1 in 40 minutes?
    Mar 16, 2017
    Arriving on American (assume this is Terminal 3) at 9:30. Flying out on Silver to MHH at 10:10. No checked baggage. Realize this is very tight. Would walking (running) be the fastest way between terminals?


    Your only chance is by running. You'll have to hope your Silver Airways flight is delayed and your American flight is early, as that's the only way you'll make it.


  • 43 Minute layover in the same terminal
    Mar 15, 2017
    Hi, I land in terminal 4 at FLL at 9:42 my connecting flight is 10:25 in the same terminal. Do I have to go through security again?


    the second flight is international and the first is domestic.


    If both flights are on the same reservation then all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • MSP to FLL, FLL to MBJ
    Mar 12, 2017
    I am traveling from MSP arriving at FLL at 140 pm, I have a separate ticket to leave FLL at 207pm to go to MBJ. Both airlines are in the same terminal but different concourses (E & F), I only have a personal item and carry on for baggage. Will that be enough time to connect? Do I have to go through security again if both flights are in the same terminal? And if I miss the flight (FLL to MBJ) which I think is the only for the day what happens? I had someone book my flights who obviously did not know what they were doing please HELP ME!!!


    You won't have to go through security again. If you miss your flight it depends on what airline you are flying. If you are on JetBlue you can pay a fee and take the flight the next day if it has empty seats. If it's Spirit you have to buy another ticket to Jamaica or enjoy your vacation in Florida. This is a very risky connection and I really would recommend not letting whoever booked this get within a mile of your travel plans in the future.


  • enough time or a waste of time

    arriving jet blue terminal 3 at 3 pm supposed to take silver to eyw 420 pm terminal 1 no bags enough time?? if I run?


    Yes, it's possible if the JetBlue light is domestic and on-time.


  • Any Re-check desk after US Customs
    Mar 8, 2017
    Hello! we will be coming to FLL on Emirates from Int trip, then need to catch domestic Jet Blue flight to Detroit. Is there any baggage re-check desk after customs? that way we don't have to move check-in baggage all the way to JetBlue counter.


    I believe there is but you may not be able to re-check JetBlue bags there. I have heard that in FLL, JetBlue makes you take bags to their counter (which isn't far away anyway and probably why they don't use the re-check desk).


  • Changing Terminals
    Mar 8, 2017
    I am flying into FLL on Delta and transferring to Silver Airways to fly to Treasure Cay, Bahamas. Going from one terminal to another will I have to go through TSA security again?


    Yes, you will have to go through security again in Terminal 1.

    I have two different tickets MBJ TO FLL ARRIVING 4:35. Terminal 4. FLL to BUF Terminal 1. Will I have to pick up my bags and recheck them at terminal 1 and is this enough time>


    The flight departs FLL To BUF AT 6:00


    That is not enough time. Yes, you will have to pick up your bags and re-check them in Terminal 1. Southwest does not interline baggage with other airlines.


  • enough time???
    Mar 2, 2017
    landing terminal3 300pm supposed to depart terminal 1 420pm enough time?? thanks


    Where are you flying from and to? Are the flights on the same reservation or two separate reservations? What airlines?


  • Porter Between Terminals 2 and 1
    Mar 2, 2017
    Can I get a porter to take luggage from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1C?


    You'll have to find one and ask them. They are independent contractors that work for themselves.


  • Walk vs shuttle Terminal 2 to Terminal 1
    Mar 2, 2017
    Advice on walking vs shuttle between Terminal 2 and Terminal 2, concourse C for elderly couple. See it is 815 ft distance. Where is the shuttle stop on Terminal 1 and how far is it to Concourse C.


    I would walk if you can. The Shuttle goes the wrong direction (it goes to Terminal 3 and 4 and then back to the rental car center). In addition the shuttle stop isn't even that close to the actual gates of Terminal 1 (the stop is at the rental car center which is across a pedestrian bridge from Terminal 1).


    The net additional distance walking from Term 2 to entrance to concourse Terminal 1 C is 528 feet from car rental (shuttle stop) to Concourse C entry and in the direction of Terminal 1C,, so, net extra distance to walk is only 817 - 528 = 289 net feet 0.05 miles. Measured on Google maps. Knowing where shuttle stop is was a huge help. thanks


  • PLS to FLL to BNA
    Mar 1, 2017
    Hello, I will be coming in on a Monday from PLS (Turks and Caicos), arrival is 12:47 p.m. Connecting flight to Nashville is at 2:12 p.m. I also have the Customs Mobile App. Will we have time to make our connection that tight?


    What airlines are you flying? Is it one reservation or two separate ones? Do you have checked bags?


    It will be 2 different tickets. Same airline....Jetblue. Was going to see if they will consolidate ticket for simplicity.


    Yeah, that's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Will this be enough time to connect to my flight?
    Feb 27, 2017
    I have a flight that arrives in FLL terminal 3 E concourse at 140 pm and I have a connecting flight in terminal 3 concourse F, will I have to go through security again? And will that be enough time to connect?


    My connecting flight departs at 2 pm


    You shouldn't have to go through securitya gain if the first flight is domestic. 20 minutes is REALLY difficult to make any connection.
