  • 1 hour connection time - enough time???
    Jul 10, 2013
    1
    Hello!!!! I am flying to San Diego through Rome and Jfk. In Rome i have a connection time of 1 hour and i have to switch terminals from terminal 1 to terminal 3. Its my first time flying outside EU and i am very stressed about it. Do i have to pass security check? Do i also have to check in my luggage again? Is 1 hour enough for all these? Please help me!

     

    Is your flight from Rome to JFK on Alitalia or Delta? If it's on Delta you'll actually have to go to Terminal 5. What airline are you flying from JFK to San Diego?

    Arriving at terminal 1 from Brussel, have 3 hours 25 min layover before domestic flight from terminal 2 (Dec 21st). Would that be enoguh? Are there customs at terminal 1 or will we have to first og to terminal 5?

     

    International flights from Brussels arrive in Terminal 5. You will go through immigration there, then re-check your bags, then take the ATS to Terminal 2 and go through security. What airline are you flying from Terminal 2?

     

    The flight info says terminal 1 arriving with Brussel airlines operated by United. Leaving from terminal 2 with United but operated by Gojet to jacksonville.

     

    Your first flight will arrive in Terminal 5 - all international flights (except precleared ones from Canada, the Bahamas, and Ireland) arrive in Terminal 5. Your GoJet flight to Jacksonville could depart from Terminal 1 or Terminal 2. After you land if you have a mobile phone you can check the flight status for your United flight - concourses B and C are in T1 while concourses E and F are in T2. Whatever flight info you're looking at is incorrect.

    I will be coming from Raleigh landing 707 am leaving for Syracuse at 802 am. Will I have time to make connecting flight. What terminal will I be arriving at and leaving from. United Airlines

     

    What airport are you connecting at?

     

    Assuming you use United for both legs of your flights, you simply walk over to your next gate. United is in Terminal 2, at Concourse D, gates D1-9. If arriving by AirTran or Southwest (a Terminal 1) at Raleigh-Durham Airport, you would need to take the purple shuttle bus #3, to T2, then go through security check at T2 before proceeding to your A gate - but an hour will do.

     

    tujun - he's not connecting in Raleigh. He's coming from Raleigh.

     

    Sorry Washington Dulles

     

    Your first flight will likely arrive in C/D and your second flight will likely depart from A. You can take the mobile lounge between them.

    Flying from MOB to NY - on US Airways 2540 connecting flight from CLT- what gate do I arrive at CLT and what is departure gate for flight 1910 to LGA - then I have to meet friends arriving at Terminal B Concourse D - I arrive at Terminal C - best way to get to Terminal B Thanks- this is May 25, 2013

     

    At LGA US Airways uses Terminal C (gates C15-44) - your boarding pass & the overhead screens in the terminal will indicate gate number). At CLT there is only one passenger terminal with Concourses A - E. On arrival go down to the baggage claim and meet your party near the information counter.

     

  • 44 MINUTES TO LAX

    AT JUNE 12 20013 IAM FLYING FROM CHARLLOTTE (CLT) AT 5:45AM AN D ARRIVE TO (IAD) AT 7:07AM AND I HAVE 44 MINUTES TO TRANS BORED TO THE FLY THAT IS TAKEING ME TO (LAX) AIRPORT BUT WHAT GATE THAT I HAVE TO TAKE GETTING TO WASHINGTON (IAD) BECUASE IS MY FIRST TIME FLYING WITH MY KIDS, I REALLY NEED HELP.

     

    It sounds like you are on united. If so, your first flight will arrive in A or C and if it arrives in A, you need to take the shuttle to C. Your second flight will probably depart from C. You should have enough time. Things usually run really on-time and often early that early in the morning.

     

    okay thanks, now about my bags do i have to pick them up when i arrive to washington or i just need to trans bored to the airplane, and all get my bags when i arrive to LAX airport.

     

    Your bags will be checked through to LAX in Charlotte. You won't have to touch them until you get to LAX.

    i am flying Manchester UK to Las Vegas with 2 hour 9 mins lay over in philadelphia, i need to get from terminal A to terminal b and get though immigration. do we have to collect our bags and check them in to the connecting flight or are they automatically sent to the connecting flight ... also will we have enough time to catch the connection to Vegas.

     

    Check with your airline first (if you use different airlines) if they will transfer your bags to your next leg of your journey. If not, you would need, after customs clearance, take your bags & check them in with your connecting carrier. International arrivals are processed in Terminal A-West. Thereafter, you go through security check. Terminals A & B are connected by post-security walkway, and the B gates are numbered B1-16. You should be able to make it in the given time frame, even with baggage check-in (which would involve going through security check thereafter).

     

    Both of your flights are likely on US Airways. In which case you will collect your bags in immigration and re-check them with US Airways when you clear customs. That should be enough time. Note that your Vegas flight could leave from a number of different concourses/terminals used by US Airways mainline flights.

    I have a flight leaving at 5 am. I also will be checking a bag. Any thoughts as to what time I need to arrive? And will terminal 2 be open?

     

    Can't tell you when your terminal opens as you don't mention which Airport you depart from. In general, you should arrive an hour prior to scheduled departure if checking in bag. Contact your Airport.

    We've had numerous flight changes for our flight to Ireland. The latest gives us 1 hour to change airlines in Chicago. We arrivefrom St. Louis on AA at 2:50 pm and depart at 3:50 pm on Aer Linguis. Is this a realistic amount of time? Will we have to get our luggage fro AA or will they transfer it to Aer Linguis? Thanks!!

     

    I take it you arrive at ORD O'Hare (not MDW Midway), in which case you arrive via AA at Terminal 3 (T3). Your departure terminal via Aer Lingus is in T5. The ATS shuttle train takes you from T3 to T5 (yes, T5 is the next stop), and runs every few mins; however you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. (T5 has M gates which wrap around the concessions court: to the left (gates M12-M21) and to the right (gates M7-M1), and extends northward in the center to gates M8-M11 (prepare yourself for long walks from check-in to gates). One hour is tight, but if incoming flight is not delayed you should be able to make it in time.

    How long to get from T-c gate C30 to T-e Gate E14? Only have 35 minutes & elderly. What is the best way to get there fast.

     

    Which Airport are you arriving at? 35 mins for transfer seems to be quite tight. I suggest you open www.ifly.com - enter your airport on top, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.
