I booked a flight through Spirit from Medellin (MDE) to Boston (BOS). There's a layover in FLL and I'm scheduled to arrive at 6:40 pm; then have to catch the connecting flight at 8:10 pm (all with same airline: Spirit). It seems to me that Spirit is barely giving us enough time to make this connection. I will be carrying on bags - but is this enough time to get through customs and make my connecting flight?
Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Medellin is on-time.
Hey, I'm new to the US. I am planning to travel from New Orleans to Fort Lauderdale Terminal 1. Then I have 2 hours and 51 minutes before my flight departs to Havana from Terminal 4. I need to collect luggage and re-check it. How long does it take to get through domestic in US, do i have enough time?
Yes, that should be enough time if your flight from New Orleans is on-time. All you have to do in FLL is claim your bags, take them to Terminal 4, re-check them, and go through security.
I will fly from Cartagena with Spirit Airlines and then have a connecting flight 4 hours later with Norwegian to Oslo. Between the flights I need to fetch my luggage and check in again. I am a German citizen. Will I need a visa for that?
You do need to complete ESTA (Germans do not require a true visa enter or transit the US).
My elderly folks are flying from NYC to Columbia, arriving around midnight with their next flight to Columbia early the next morning. They're both 80 and I'm wondering where they could get a bit of sleep either in the lounges or very close by. Any help much appreciated.
There are no overnight lounges at FLL. They have to either wait in the baggage claim level of their terminal or get a hotel. For a few hours it's probably just best for them to wait in the baggage claim area.
