  • Connection time 40mins
    Apr 3, 2016
    Hi there, we are coming in from IAH and connecting to MHH, having 40mins and a terminal change...is this too ambitious? Both flights booked with united at the same time (silver airways provides the second flight)- since united offers this connection on the website, should be fine- or not?


    Yes, it's possible. United and Silver use the same concourse, and Silver flights are frequently late, which actually helps you in this instance.


  • MCO to FLL to MDE
    Apr 3, 2016
    I am traveling from Orlando (MCO) to FLL and then onto Medellin with one checked bag. I have one hour between the flights. From what I have been able to see, both flights are in terminal 4. This should not be an issue, correct? On the return, there is a 2 hour layover. Will this be enough time to clear customs and re-check my bag?


    Yes, that should be enough time both ways.


  • International to domestic connection

    How much time should I give myself between arriving at Terminal 4 from POS at 1535 to domestic terminal for Delta flight to ATL ? Will I need to go through security and custom?


    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then take your bags to Terminal 2, re-check them with Delta and go through security. I recommend about 3 hours for your connection.


  • tampa to bogota through FLL on spirit
    Mar 20, 2016
    I am flying on Spirit from Tampa to Bogota with a 42 minute layover and one checked bag. Will I make it? I booked both flights on spirit's site.


    It's possible but it obviously leaves no time to spare if the flight from Tampa is delayed.


  • Delta from LGA -- FLL -- Jetblue to Turks & Caicos
    Mar 15, 2016
    Thinking of booking a flight from LGA that lands at FLL (Terminal 2) at 10:19am. My flight on Jetblue (Terminal 3) to Turks & Caicos is at 11:15am. Is this enough time to make my connection? No checked bags.


    If you are able to check in for your Jetblue flight online, your Delta flight is on-time (a bit if coming from LGA) and if you run to Terminal 3 and the security lines are short, you might have a chance. I wouldn't try it.

    I arrive to FLL in JetBlue at 5:10 am from Quito and have a connection to Atlantic City, NJ at 7:05 with Spirit. No checked in luggage; do I have enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Jetblue from PLS -- FLL -- Delta to LGA
    Mar 15, 2016
    I land from PLS (Turks and Caicos) on Jetblue flight at 4:00pm on a Sunday, no checked bags only carry-on, and want to book a 5:20pm Delta flight to LGA. Is this enough time?


    With no checked bags if you are already checked in for your Delta flight you have a chance, but you will really have to run to Terminal 2 to make it in time. It is not close to Terminal 4 where you will arrive.


    i assume i have to go through customs when i land from turks and caicos right? is that terminal 4? bc it looks like JetBlue is terminal 3 which looks a bit closer to 2


    Yes, Terminal 4 is the only terminal with immigration and customs, so that's where you arrive.


  • Brazil Azul - FLL - MCO (spirit)
    Mar 5, 2016
    I land in FLL from Brazil at 5:30 a.m. flying Azul operating terminal 4 and want to book a spirit flight for MCO leaving at 7:05 (terminal 4). Is 1h35min enough to go through immigration and customs? Will I have to go through security again? No checked bags.


    Yes, you will have to go through security again. With No checked bags you can probably make it.


  • Connecting flight customs?
    Mar 5, 2016
    Hi, so I'm flying from Tampa to FLL on my way to punta Cana. My flights are close together and I was wondering do I go through customs in Tampa or Fort Lauderdale? If in ft lauderdale I may miss my flight.


    There is no US Customs when departing the United States.

    I land in FLL from Detroit at 9:49 a.m. on a Tuesday and want to book a flight leaving FLL to Colombia on Spirit leaving at 10:47 am. Carryon only. Can I do it?


    Yes, that should be possible if you are already checked in for both flights.


  • domestic to international connection
    Mar 2, 2016
    I am flying from Chicago to FLL on United then fly to Brazil on Azul Airlines. will I have to go through security again when I land in FLL?


    Yes, you will. United and Azul are in different terminals and the Terminals at FLL are not connected inside security.


  • Mex-FLL-Jamaica
    Mar 2, 2016
    Do I have enough time to move from jet blue terminal where my flight arrive Mex-FLL at 10:10 to spirit terminal where my flight to Jamaica departure at 12:00? 1 hour 50 minutes will be enough for migration and check in my luggage?


    No, that is not enough time for your connection with checked luggage. Do not book that ticket.


    And if I don't have luggage to check?


    Without checked baggage you'd have a chance, but don't expect Spirit to reacccommodate you if you miss your connection.


  • Terminal 2 to Terminal 1
    Mar 1, 2016
    I am flying in on an air canada flight (will have already cleared customs) at terminal 2 at 1903 and have a connecting flight with silver at 1955. Will this be enough time, will my bags be checked through to final destination?


    Air Canada and Silver Airways do not have an interline baggage agreement, so you will have to claim them from Air Canada and take them to silver to re-check. It will be very difficult for you to make it to the Silver counter before the bag check cutoff, even though their flights are frequently late.


  • Nicaragua-FLL-MCO

    I am booked on a Spirit flight from MGA to FLL, knowing that I must clear customs in FLL, will I have enough time to catch my connecting flight to Orlando? Times: Arrive FLL 5:59am Sunday morning Depart for MCO at 7:05. One checked bag.


    It's not impossible but everything has to go perfectly for it to work. On the good side, I believe the flight from Managua is the first arrival into FLL in the morning so you shouldn't have any lines at immigration.


  • Jamaica-FLL-LAX
    Feb 28, 2016
    Have an hour layover with only a carry on is that enough time? Spirit from Jamaica and Jet blue to LAX


    flight gets there at 5:45 and leaves at 7


    No, I don't think that will be possible unless your Spirit flight arrives quite early. You will have to go through US Immigration and Customs, change terminals, and go through security.
