  • 2 hr layover from Dubai and to Costa Rica enough?
    Dec 29, 2015
    2
    Hello can you please help me figure out if the 2 hours I have between arrival (15:50) from dubai and departure to Costa Rica (17:42) are enough for me? Thank you

     

    On two separate reservations? No that isn't enough time.

     

    Yes with 2 different ones but with carry on luggage Thanks !

     

  • Connecting from B to E

    Arriving on a domestic flight terminal B, flying out of E intercontinental. Do I go through security? How much time would I need for the connection?

     

    You do not have to go through security. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security. I recommend 45-60 minutes minimum.

     

  • Can we get to the KLM lounge in Terminal D if we are at Terminal C?

    We will be arriving at Terminal C at 5:15am and not leaving until 1:00pm. As part of a promotion, we got two free lounge passes for KLM Crown Lounge, which is in Terminal D. We're unsure whether we can get to that lounge from "inside security" - does anyone know whether we can get from landing at Terminal C to "Airside - the lounge is located near Gate D8." without having to leave the secure area? (We're REALLY hoping to have a nap and a shower :) Thanks!

     

    Yes, you can walk from C to D inside security. However, the KLM Crown Lounge won't open until afternoon.

     

  • Flying from YYZ on March 4 2016

    Flying on AC from YYZ arriving in Houston 6:50 p.m. to catch a flight with NZ to Auckland at 8:25 p.m. This doesn't seem like enough time to transfer from terminal A to D, what do you think?

     

    Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. If both tickets are on the same reservation, all you have to do in Houston is take the Skyway train from Terminal A to Terminal D and walk to your departure gate.

     

  • From Terminal E to terminal C

    I am flying from MEX to IAH with United, we land at terminal E and then my fight leaves from Terminal C. We have 1 hour 49 minutes between flights. What is the best way to arrive from terminal E to terminal C? I would appreciate any advice.

     

    You will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and follow signs to your departure gate.

    On Friday Feburary 5th, we have a flight arrival time from PTV at 6PM, with a connection to RDU at 7:57. Will this 117 minutes be enough time to get thru customs and security and make the flight to RDU? Both flights are with United Airlines.

     

    I assume you mean Panama City, Panama, which is PTY. Yes, that should be enough time.

     

    I'm sorry. I meant PVR, Puerto Vallarta. Will be flying from PVR -> IAH -> RDU. Arrive at IAH at 6PM. Depart IAH to RDU at 7:57. Hopefully we can make it.

     

  • TSA PreCheck, International

    I will be arriving from CUN to IAH and then will board United to San Antonio. After going through US Immigration & Customs, do they have a separate line for TSA PreCheck going through security? I don't have Global Entry, however, I have TSA PreCheck printed on my boarding passes but don't recall there being a separate PreCheck line through security.

     

    There are precheck security lines at IAH. They may not be right next to the exit of customs though.

    Hi. I am flying in to Houston from London on January 6th with United and have 81 minutes before my flight to Costa Rica with United Airlines. Returning on January 25th same route I have 74 minutes. Does this leave me enough time to get my onwards flights?

     

    No, neither of those connection times are sufficient to arrive, go through US Immigration, Customs, and security. You need to contact United or your Travel Agent (whoever you booked your ticket through) and be rebooked.

    How feasible is it to clear customs and immigration in 90 minutes. We're travelling May 16. Better than 50/50? Will the airline help to speed things up?

     

    The airline won't help speed things up, but you do have a good chance, especially because you won't have to claim your bags since you are on an International to International connection. if you do miss your connection they will rebook you.

    I don't know for sure which terminals, but I'll have just at an hour to change terminals . . . flying United from Charlotte then on to Puerto Vallarta. Is this enough time? TIA

     

    All terminals are connected inside security by the skyway train. You will depart from Terminal E. You should have enough time.

    I will arrive from Munich Germany to terminal E on Dec. 30 at 18.05, with a 1h25min layover to Mexico City from the same terminal. Both flights are operated by United airlines and booked with the same ticket. Will it be possible to make this connection? Thanks for any advice!

     

    It's barely possible. You have to go through US customs, immigration, and security.

    I am traveling from terminal A to D and I have check in 2 bags as my 2 flights are operated by different airlines and the ticket was booked separately ! How should that be done ? Which way is advisable if I have 2 bags ?

     

    You will have to claim your bags in terminal A, take them on the subway train to Terminal D, recheck your bags and go through security. You need at least 2.5 hours.

    We have 41 mins to go from Terminal A (A2) to Terminal C (C45). What would be the best way to do it in that time frame.

     

    If you don't have checked bags or your checked bags are tagged through to United, then take the Skyway Train. It runs inside security. It's barely enough time.

     

  • Enough time for connection

    I am flying into Houston from New Mexico this weekend, and then have 1 hour and 19 minute layover before departing for El Salvador. Is this enough time? How long will it take to get to exit the plane and board the next flight? Thanks!

     

    That should be plenty of time. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If they are in different terminals, all gates in Houston are connected inside security by the Skyway train.

    I'm flying SAN-IAH-FRA. The United flight SAN-IAH arrives at 2:39pm in Terminal C and the IAH-FRA Lufthansa flight departs at 4:10pm from Terminal D. Is this time sufficient for making the connection (bags checked through to FRA)? Can I walk or should I take the skyway train? Thanks!

     

    You can just walk. That should be plenty of time.
