Hi There

Arriving FLL by Emirates flight at 1055am and intend to book onward connecting flight to ATL on DL2393 departing at 4:45pm , would this be sufficient time to connect ? clear immigration , claim baggage and checkin for domestic connection clearing customs and security . Thanks advise Hemanth
My flight from FLL to Key West just got changed by United (Silver). Arrive in Spirit at 9:39 in Terminal 4, then have to hustle to get to Terminal 1 for the the Silver Flight at 10:40 a.m. Just have a carry on and in good shape. Is this realistic?
It's possible if the flight from Detroit is on-time and you check-in online for your Silver Airways flight.
hi

arriving at 10.55 by Emirates terminal 4 and connecting flight at 15.17 Jetblue terminal 3. should I need to claim my checked-in luggage before proceeding to terminal 3 or are luggage checked-in throughout up to my final destination which is Haiti.
My other question is whether need to pass through immigration and custom again when proceeding to terminal 3.
Last Question, I have a stopover of 7 hours at FLL on my way back from Haiti, what can you advise???
Thanks
Yes, you will need to claim your bags to take them through US Customs. You will go through Immigration and customs in T4 and security in T3. On the way back, you could take a taxi to the beach and spend a few hours there.
Thanks a lot.

Airport taxi? It's my first trip to FLL, so don't know much about FLL. How much, if you have an idea.... What about my baggage???
How many hours before should I reach airport to complete all formalities: customs, immigration and security.
Thanks a lot.

Hi !
I'm flying out of Nicaragua and my first connection would be through FLL in morning. The itinerary I'm looking at shows that I would be flying with Sprint through each of my connections to Vegas, but I'm only given an hour in FLL. I have no idea of which terminals I'll be arriving in or departing from, but I feel like an hour won't be enough time with security and immigration ? Thoughts ?
Spirit* airlines
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. Both flights will be in Terminal 4.
Hey,
need to change in FLL between two individually booked flights.
2 heavy luggage need to be claimed from domestic and checked-in to international flight.
arriving 15:11 with DT-1060 Delta Airlines from Detroit DTM
departing 17:50 with CM-266 Copa Airlines to Panama PTY
With baggage-claim, gate change and check-in, do i reach the international flight in-time?
Thank you for the help :)
I already answered your question. Why did you ask it two more times?

Hey there :)
2 heavy luggage have to be claimed, transported to the Copa flight and checked in there.
will arrive from Detroit DTM DL1060 (expected 15:11 in FLL)
and need to catch the 17:50 CM266 to Panama
Am I on the save side?
thx in advance
That should be enough time if the flight from Detroit is on-time.
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.
