  • Do I have enough time
    Sep 23, 2016
    Hi there! Im a little bit worried about something... I book a flight from Panama City, Panama Monday 26th arrives 4:03pm T4 and I have to change terminals to recheck bags and take a flight to Seattle that departs at 6:55pm from T1, do you think I will be ok... Im traveling with my 4 years old... I think we can make it, however still Im worried


    Yes, it's possible but, as you suspect, it doesn't leave much time to spare.


  • Connection Southamerica - Europe
    Sep 21, 2016
    Hi everyone, I have a flight from Bogotá via FLL to Oslo with Spirit and Norwegian Airlines. I have a European passport and checked in bags so I'll need to go through immigration, customs, everything. I have a bit less than 3 hours, I arrive at 7pm and leave close to 10pm - can I make it? Any tips?


    With the late evening arrival that should be just possible assuming the flight from Bogota is on-time. If it is late do not expect Norwegian to be particularly accommodating.


  • MYR to FLL then FLL to SJO
    Sep 20, 2016
    Flying Spirit, booked reservation all in one. On December 9th we have an 8 AM flight out of Myrtle Beach arriving in Fort Lauderdale at 9:50, departing flight leaves at 10:50 AM. Since I booked on Spirit I figured the hour in between would be sufficient, but want some confirmation. Is the connection feasible? If we missed the flight - would Spirit accommodate a new one since it was their connection?


    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Yes, if you miss your connection they will rebook you on the next available Spirit flight to San Jose, which probably wouldn't be until the next day.


    Thanks so much!

    HI, My wife and I are returning from the Caribbean on Jan 1st 2017,with two infants. Arriving at FLL 3:35 pm on Caribbean AIlines Terminal 4. Would we be able to make it through customs etc to get onto a (domestic) AA flight that leaves at 5:15. (She and the kids are US citizens and I am a green card holder.)


    coming in from Trinidad and flying to LAX vic CLT in case this helps. Should we book it? (It's very difficult to find another flight that works)


    No, that would not be reasonably possible.


  • Terminal 4 to Terminal 1 with checked bags
    Sep 16, 2016
    Arriving from DFW at 9:43 AM on Spirit, and departing at 12:30PM Silver to ELH. Is this going to be difficult? Separate reservations.


    That should be enough time if the Spirit flight is close to on-time. It's probably fastest to take the Rental Car Shuttle from T4 to T1.


    Thank you for kind help and the extra tip!


  • arrivât terminal 3, départirez terminal 1
    Sep 14, 2016
    arrival from Canada, customs will be cleared in Canada, west jet. Terminal 3 departure from terminal 1 with Gulfstream, to Marsh Arbour.. 45 min connection! baggage + enough?? do I have to clear the luggage or they are tranbsfer?? easy connection ??


    As far as I know Westjet and Silver Airways do not have an interline agreement and you will have to go through security again in Terminal 1. This connection is completely impossible.


    thank you!!


  • Step by step - international travel
    Sep 14, 2016
    Hi I am traveling internatinally to USA, I arrived in FLL and need to take a connection to MCO. It's been a while since I travel, does anyone know, step by step from the moment I arrive to FLL? Such as Migration kiosk, claim luggage, etc Thanks.


    What airlines are you flying? Where are you flying into FLL from?


  • Short Jetblue Connection
    Aug 29, 2016
    Looking at booking a Jetblue flight SFO to FLL with a 37minute connection to FLL to SJU, bags obviously not a factor. Is this doable?


    Yes, that is definitely doable if the flight from SFO is on-time.


  • Is there a shuttle from terminal to terminal?
    Aug 29, 2016
    Hello. My sister and I (older women) are flying into FLL from ATL on SW Airlines at 10:50 am Terminal 1B and leave to Freeport, Bahamas on Bahamasair at 12:40 pm Terminal 3E and we will have checked bags. Is there a shuttle from one terminal to another? We normally require wheelchairs. What is the best way to get from one to the other under these circumstances? Thanks for your help.


    Ask the wheelchair pusher to take you to the other terminal. They will tell you the best way.


  • Costa Rica to New Orleans on Spirit
    Aug 29, 2016
    I am worrying that I booked badly...10/19 Sprit 338 from Costa Rica to FLL connecting with 10/19 Spirit 657 from FLL to MSW New Orleans. arrives in FLL at 6 am departs FLL for MSW at 7 am. awfully tight? Should I cancel and figure something else out?


    It's not impossible due to the early morning arrival, but it will be very difficult. If you don't have checked bags that will help a lot.


  • FLL connection to Bogota
    Aug 29, 2016
    I have a Spirit flight from Chicago to Bogota stopping at FLL . I have 1:15 for the connection, will it be enough? Do the bags I check in Chicago fly directly to Bogota or do I have to pick them up in Fll and check them again for BTA? Flight from Chicago arrives at terminal 3 and flight to Bogota departd from terminal 4


    If both flights are on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your bags in FLL.


  • Short connect time, From Term 1 to Term 3
    Aug 21, 2016
    I arrive (Silver) Terminal 1 at 9:03am and need to connect with Jetblue Terminal 3 for my flight to Turks and Caicos at 10:10am, NO CHECKED BAGS. Can I make it? Do I take a shuttle? Walk? Run? HELP!


    Run, you have just enough time if your Silver flight is on-time (which is unlikely).


  • How long should I connect?
    Aug 18, 2016
    I am using Miles on American and have like 3hr 45min Layover about to re check bags and go through security. Do I do Immigration or customs at FLL? Do I do immigrations or customs when I leave Norway for Rome? I forgot to put that on there.


    Where are you flying from and to? I can't answer your question unless you define that.


    I'm flying from CLT-FLL


    No, you will not go through customs and immigration. You will just walk to your departing gate, which could mean exiting security,


  • Southwest connections from Nassau
    Aug 16, 2016
    Hi- arriving Feb 01, 2017 on Southwest from NAS to FLL at 1530. Departing on SWA to PHX at 1625. If we check bags can this be done? Can we check bags through to PHX in NAS without re-checking in FLL? Is it possible if we don't check bags? Thanks


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Nassau, all you have to do in FLL whether you check bags or not is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • Delta to Silver connection?
    Aug 16, 2016
    Hi - on 11/8/16 we arrive in FLL on Delta (from Detroit) at 12:04 pm (assume terminal 2) and our Silver flight departs terminal 1 at 2:05 pm to Marsh Harbour. I assume enough time to connect? We will have checked baggage. On return I assume this will not be enough time - we arrive FLL at 4:50 pm on Silver from Marsh Harbour and need to connect to Delta departing at 5:55 pm. I wonder if we can check luggage all the way through? Any advice would be appreciated, thanks


    Yes, you assume correctly. That is absolutely not enough time on your return.


    Thanks! Delta and Silver have an "interline agreement". I assume that means I can check baggage all the way through from Detroit to Marsh Harbour and won't have to get my baggage and re-check at FLL?


    Yes, that is what an interline agreement entails. You will have to exit security at Terminal 1's concourse C to catch your Delta flight from Concourse D at Terminal D. Unless you have TSA Pre-check, the connection is nearly impossible, especially since Silver Airways is rarely on time.


    Would TSA precheck or Global Entry expedite things? Detroit to FLL on Delta then catch Silver from FLL to Marsh Harbor (and then vice versa for return portion).


    Delta will not check your bags through to Silver unless you purchased all tickets on the same reservation.
