I just received a flight change and only have 1 hour 29 minutes to connect - arriving Terminal 3 Jet Blue - Departing Terminal 1 Silver Air - luggage is going all the way through to final destination - Is this enough time?
It's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I've booked a flight from JFK to ELH Bahamas on JetBlue with a connection in FLL. JetBlue just changed the flight time from JFK, so now I only have 1 hr 15 min layover in FLL before my Silver Airways flight to ELH. Will I make it? Do I need to go through security again if I'm switching from Term 3 to Term 1?
Yes, you will have to go through security again. The terminals are not connected inside security. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi there, Im flying with Norwegian airshuttle airlines and i arrive at FLL at 19:00. I booked my second flight separately, it's with Jetblue and departs and 20:35. Would there be enough time to get my luggage en re-check it in?
No, that's not enough time, especially when you consider that Norwegian long haul flights are almost always late.
I am flying next month POS-PHL (all JetBlue) and would like to know if an arrival in FLL at 7:02PM would allow me to self connect to PHL departing FLL at 8:33PM? JetBlue will not allow me to book it directly I'm guessing because its not enough time to clear customs. Can you help?
I don't know if they'd let you do it. It is risky and that's probably why they don't sell it.
Hello. We arrive in FLL by Bahamas Air 207 at 7:25 PM. We have a connecting flight to CPH by Norwegian DY7042 at 9:30 PM. We have checked baggage. Will this be enough time? Both airlines arrive/depart in same terminal.
That is barely enough time if the BahamasAir Flight is on-time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Nassau or Freeport. You will have to transfer bags between airlines yourself.
You need 2 hrs domestic to international check in. If you have checked bags it will be tight because you will have to claim and re-check unless Bahamas air has an interline agreement with Norwegian.
Bahamasair and Norwegian do not have an interline agreement. Norwegian doesn't interline with anyone. They will have to transfer their bags themselves.
I have a Norwegian flight leaving at 11:00pm. I am considering a flight through Southwest that would arrive at 8:40pm. I will have baggage and will have to go through standard security. I am thinking this should be plenty of time, but figured it wouldn't hurt to see what others think.
In case it matters, it would be on a Sunday in June.
It won't be "plenty of time" it's closer to "not quite impossible" than "plenty of time". I'd want at least 3 hours, especially considering that Southwest and Norwegian are complete opposite ends of the airport.
Thank you for the help.
I was afraid of that. And of course prices have gone up since I asked this (should have checked back sooner). So now I have to decide to risk it, pay 35% more for 1-1/2 more hours or 15% more for the cheapest flight... which would have me in the airport for 6 hours.
