  • Customs question
    Sep 1, 2015
    I'm flying back from LHR via Dublin to IAD to DFW on Sept 25. Originally we had 2 hours between flights but now only 1 1/2 hours. Is this enough time to clear customs and catch our flight? We land at IAD at 3:30 PM.


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. all you have to do at IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. you have enough time.

    HI, I am flying into FCO and arriving at 8:55 am international from Detroit with only carry on. My flight to (Aitalia) Naples is 10am. This is only a 1 hr 5 minute layover. Will this be enough time?


    That should be enough time if your flight from Detroit is on-time.


  • recheck immigration from Austin to Chicago to Frankfurt
    Aug 26, 2015
    Hi, My 16- years old daughter will fly back by herself (one ticket) from Austin to Chicago to Frankfurt to Casablanca. Will she need to check luggage and immigration only in Austin or will she need to recheck luggage and immigration in chicago knowing that she has only 2:30 hours layover.


    There is no US Customs when departing the US. She won't do anything with her baggage in between Austin and Casablanca.

  • International departure

    If I am connecting from a domestic flight to an international flight to dublin, how much time should I leave as the connection time?


    30 minutes is possible, 45 is sufficient, 60 is comfortable. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Immigration
    Aug 17, 2015
    Hi, I am flying to London (UK) to Montreal via Washington with United, do i have to go through immigration, ie: do i need a US visa?


    In Washington DC you will 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 to your departure gate. If you are a UK Citizen you will have to complete ESTA. if you are a Canadian citizen you don't need a visa. Otherwise needing a US Transit Visa depends on your nationality.

  • Dogs shipping from Panama - Dulles Airport
    Aug 5, 2015
    Where do I pick up my dogs that are being shipped on Copa Airlines from Panama??


    If you are flying on a flight with them you will pick them up at the oversize baggage claim after immigration and before customs. If they are just being shipped you need to contact Copa Cargo and arrange to pick them up.

    Yes, 4 hours should be just enough time if your flight from Mexico arrives on-time.


  • close connection
    Jul 28, 2015
    We are flying delta from Rome to Seattle with a connection in AMS. The two legs are not on separate reservations so from earlier posts it looks like we shouldn't have to worry about baggage claim and recheck, however what is the time needed for the exit passport control? Our connection is 70 minutes.


    70 minutes should be enough time. Someone reported that they just did the same connection in about 55 minutes.


  • MYR-PHL-FRA(Frankfurt)
    Jul 21, 2015
    Hi, I have flight arriving in Philadelphia from Myrtle Beach at 19,52 with the connection to Frankfurt at 20,35. I do not have information at which terminal will I land, I just know that the departure (to Frankfurt) is at Terminal A. Could you advise, if 43 minutes is enough time to catch the flight to Frankfurt?


    The Saturday-only flight from MYR to PHL that arrives at 7:52 arrives in Terminal B. Your flight will depart from Terminal A. All you have to do is walk from B to A. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


    Thank you very much for your help
