I flight with Spirit.
I arrive at 6:30 AM at FLL at Terminal B, my flight for Cancun is at 10:41 AM
in terminal 4. I have a checked baggage.
Will I make it?
FLL doesn't have a Terminal B. Where are toy flying into Ft. Lauderdale from? 4 Hours should be enough time for pretty much any connection.
Sorry I arrive at 9:24 and have my second flight at 10:41.
Terminal B is what I have in my confirmation, but I think they meant concourse B in terminal 1.
Thanks for your help!
Spirit does not use Terminal 1. Terminal B probably refers to the terminal you depart from on your first flight. Where are you flying into FLL from?
Oh you're right, sorry about that.
From NYC LGA.
Arriving terminal 1 SW at 855 am and need to get to terminal 3 JetBlue to Turks and Caicos for a 1007 am departure. No checked bags. Will I be able to make that?
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. You will have to hustle to Terminal 3 and go through security. I don't recommend trying this.
Flight gets in jetblue at 6:27pm and departs SW at 8:15pm? Is this enough time? Would we need to stick to carry on only or would a checked bag work?
You only realistically can make this with a carry-on and even then you'll need to Hustle to Terminal 1 to go through security again.
Also, this is if the JetBlue flight is domestic. if the JetBlue flight is international, it will be MUCH harder.
Arriving from Boston at 3pm - (no Checked bags)
Trying to catch the 4:20 Silver Airlines flight to Key West - Do we have enough time?
You have a good chance if the first flight is on-time and you hustle to Terminal 1.
I'm flying with United Airlines from Tampa to Fort Lauderdale arriving in Terminal 1 at 9:15 PM. My connecting flight is to Copenhagen with Norwegian from Terminal 3 at 11:45 PM. Will I have enough time to transfer.
Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time. Be aware that your first flight is on Silver Airways, not United.
Flying to Fort Lauderdale from marsh harbor on silverway arrival 5:35, trying to get to southwest gate to fly to Milwaukee flight 5:55pm will I make it?
You have absolutely NO CHANCE of making that connection.
How long will it take to get from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3 via the shuttle?
about 10 minutes, it's also about a 5 minute walk from T1 to where the shuttle is.
FLYING SILVER AIRWAYS TO FLL BEFORE TRANSFERRING TO JET BLUE TO GET TO NY. WE HAD PURCHASED BOTH FLIGHTS WITH APPROX AN HOUR AND 15 MIN FROM LANDING UNTIL TAKE OFF. HOWEVER, SILVER AIRWAYS JUST PUSHED THE FLIGHT BACK AN HOUR. IS 20 MIN ENOUGH TIME, CONNECTING DOMESTICALLY? WHAT DO WE DO?!?!?!
No, 20 minutes is not enough time. You have to call JetBlue and ask for a later flight to NY.
Hello,

I want to but this flight
FROM: BOGOTA to Fort Lauderdale, FL / Miami, FL AREA 6:59 PM
TIME: 3 hours, 54 minutes

1 hours 36 minutes layover

DEPARTURE: Fort Lauderdale, FL / Miami, FL AREA 8:35 PM
ARRIVAL: Baltimore, MD / Washington, DC AREA 11:03 PM

I'm concerned about the layover, is it enough time?

Please help me, thank you very much in advance!!
I assume both flights are on Spirit. If your flight from Bogota is on time, you should be able to make the connection, but Spirit's on time ratings are among the worst in the USA. If you aren't checking bags, you should have an easier time.
Hello Andy, yes both flights are with Spirit, I hope I won't have to take my bags. Thank you so much for your answer.
Hi there

I'm worried about my upcoming flights, I will have 2.6 hours layer over in FLL, from Havana, Cuba, for Jamaica.
Will I be able to make it through the custom in time please?

My situation is that,
I've been and will be travelling in and out of the U.S. a lot on my visitor visa due to flights from Costa Rica and Panama, and I'm now going to Mexico, Cuba and Jamaica.
Each of them requires me to go in and out of U.S. .
Last time I came in,
because I was visiting friends + doing the great American roadtrips here for 3 months from before xmas,
I was warned by the custom lady to be careful coz next time I come in and seem like I live in the U.S. for more than when I'm out, it'll be a problem.
But I'm only here to travel, not to live here.
I live in New Zealand - why would I wanna live here??
I'm just travelling this year around the U.S. & Central America,
it's not like I'd like to always come in and out of the U.S.
but I do have only 90 days here to travel every time,
and I do make sure to leave the country every 3 months before finishing my roadtrip within the U.S..

Custom officers don't seem to like travellers like me that travel for a long time & come in to the U.S. so often. Which I understand.
But I AM going by the rule by travelling outside the U.S.
So I'm worried that while exploring other countries this year, custom officers might put me in a separate room to question me, and that'll really make me miss my flight...

Please let me know what you think.
Sorry if my situation is a bit more complicated than other travellers'.

Thank you for your time.
Are you changing airlines? If you remain in the same terminal, you have enough time. If you are changing terminals, you should still have enough time but it will be cutting it close depending on if you are checking bags.
