    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.


  • Terminal 3 to Terminal 4

    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.


  • Terminal 3 to Terminal 1

    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!


  • Enough time

    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.


  • southwest to avianca?
    Jun 9, 2015
    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?
    Jun 4, 2015
    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.


  • 54 minute layover with Spirit

    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!


  • MBJ -> FLL -> DCA

    Good Day Is it possible for me to connect from Mo-Bay on Jetblue Terminal 4 to Jetblue terminal 3 in 90 minutes? I will need to clear Immigration & Customs also retrieve a checked bag.


    It should be possible if the first flight is on-time.


  • LAX to FLL to Dominican Republic

    I am looking at a domestic flight that lands into FLL at 12:25 am. There is a Spirit flight that departs for DR at 12:50am. Even with running through the airport and no checked bags I would assume that I would not make the connector. What are your thoughts?


    Correct, I would say the chance that you would make that is pretty close to zero.


  • Spirit connection BOG-FLL-DTW
    Apr 28, 2015
    Hi, I am traveling from Bogota to Fort Lauderdale, the flight arrives at 6:55pm and then the second flight departs to Detroit (both Spirit flights) at 8:20pm... Is that enough time?... (When going back DET-FLL-BOG: the first flight arrives at 9:14am and the flight to Bogota departs at 10:25am...same airline...same question) Thanks.


    Yes, it should be enough time in both connections. However, if your flight from Bogota is late you will probably be stuck in FLL overnight and that probably means sleeping on the floor.


  • Caribbean Air to Alaska Air
    Apr 24, 2015
    I have 2hrs 10 min. to connect from Caribbean Air to Alaska Air. Is that enough time?


    Were your tickets bought separately or on one reservation? Will you have checked bags


    Yes, 1 reservation and yes checked bags. Caribbean Air says no, but Alaska says it should be fine.


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • connecting flight enough time
    Apr 22, 2015
    I'm landing @ FLL 4:26pm from Dominican Republic connecting flight leaves 6:06pm to LAS is 1 hour 40 minutes enough time to get thru customs and do I have to retrieve my checked bags and recheck them. both flights are on Jet Blue


    Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, you will go through US Immigration, then claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check them at the transfer desk.


  • Spirit Flight to Southwest Flight
    Apr 6, 2015
    Hello, I have a flight getting into FFL at 5:45pm with Spirit, arriving from Montego Bay. Then I'm taking another flight with Southwest to Los Angeles at 7:25pm. Is that enough time. What terminals are they in?


    Spirit will arrive in Terminal 4 and Southwest will depart from Terminal 1 - opposite ends of the airport. You will also have to transfer your bags all the way across the airport. This will be a very difficult if not impossible connection.


  • Enough Time for Connection?
    Jul 3, 2015
    I arrive on Southwest into FLL at 11:05 with bags checked. Have an outgoing to SJU that leaves at 12:42. Is that sufficient time?


    Is your second flight also on Southwest? If so that should be enough time. If it's another airline it would barely be possible.


    Hello, my parents are coming from Bogota to VA, with connection in FLl arriving at terminal 4. Their second flight departs from terminal 3. Can they walk there or would the have to take the shuttl? If they can walk could you give an idea how they would get from terminal 4 to terminal 3 walking?


  • Enough time for flight transfer?

    Hi, I am arriving at fll from atl at 10:55 am in southwest airlines and then jumping on jetblue to cartagena, colombia that departs at 12:32 pm. I have no checked bags, will i have enough time to make it. thanks


    Yes, but you will have to run to the JetBlue terminal because it is in an International flight you may not be able to check-in online so you will have to get your boarding pass at the JetBlue counter.
