Arriving on United (Terminal 1) at 11:43 am and need to get to Spirit Flight (terminal 4) for a 12:50 flight. No checked bags. Printed boarding passes in hand. Going to US V.I. Can we go straight to gate? What's the fastest way to do this? Will we make it? Thanks so much!
You have to go through security again in Terminal 4. You have just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Thank you! Any advice on the quickest route from Terminal 1 to Terminal 4? Is the shuttle quicker or should we just run? Thanks again!
Arriving from Havana Spirit international flight NK2026 at 6:57 PM in terminal 4 with checked baggage. If the first flight is on time, can I make the connecting flight with Spirit from FLL to LGA (NYC) at 8:29 PM? And do I need to re-check my baggage even though the flights are on the same reservation? Thank you in advance.
Yes, you will have to claim your bags in FLL to take them through US Customs then re-check them. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
We will depart SJO at 12:35PM and land in FLL on 8/1/17 at 5:35PM. We are switching airlines to catch a return flight to TPA. How much time do we need in between to get our luggage from baggage claim, checked back in and through security?
Flight from GCM set to arrive in FLL at 3:55 PM. Flight from FLL to DEN is schedule to depart at 5:05 PM. All flights are on Southwest and we will not be checking any bags. Is this 1hr 10 min layover doable?
It's risky, but not impossible. If you miss your connection Southwest will rebook you.
Thanks ZAP, I forgot to mention these are separate tickets, but both Southwest if that makes any difference.
Please Help!!! Booked a Jet Blue flight from Santa Dominican SDQ to FLL on 6/24 arriving at 6:09AM. Considering booking a flight to IAH on Spirit that departs at 7:20AM. Is 1 hour and 11 minutes enough time to make this connection with a carry on? Will I have to go though security again? How far are the terminal's from each other?
Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and go through security. I don't think that's enough time.
