  • London to lax
    Jan 8, 2017
    I'll be landing at lax from London at 5:30 pm then have a flight from lax to Pdx via delta airlines leaving at 7:55 pm. Will there be enough time to go through customs, retrieve luggage and get to the delta gate ?


    Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly and is on the same reservation.


  • Connecting flight
    Jan 6, 2017
    I will be traveling from SFO to JFK on American. I arrive at 4 pm. My flight on American to Rome leaves at 5:30 pm. Can I make it? I am also assuming by arrival time will be sooner than the scheduled arrival time.


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I am arriving in terminal A and I want to meet up with someone arriving terminal E, but I must get my baggage first. Where do I go after getting my bag?

  • Flying to Rome with connecting flight in Fhilly
    Dec 28, 2016
    I`m flying to Rome Italy from MONTREAL YUL, we have a connecting flight in Philly that will take us directly to Rome. First question is where do I do customs ? and Second will my luggage follow or will I have to recheck them?


    In Montreal you will go directly to US Immigration and Customs Preclearance. Your luggage will be waiting there for you.


    My luggage will have to be picked up in philly or in Rome?

    Yes, that should be enough time if you don't have bags to check. i would try to be there a little earlier if you have to check bags.


    thanks so much!!


  • Connection in DFW from PARIS to MEX
    Dec 15, 2016
    Hi! I'm flying from Paris CDG to MTY, Mex and my layover in DFW is of 1.5 hours. Will I have to pick up my luggage and drop it off again? Is it enough time for immigration!? I'm freaking out.. .


    You will not have to claim and re-check your bags because you are on an international to international connection on AA through DFW. However, you have to go through Immigration, customs, and security. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    THANK YOU, fingers crossed for everything to go smoothly then.!


  • passport control
    Dec 14, 2016
    I was wondering if there are certain gates/sides within a terminal where planes park for passport control? To better explain, when I went from Newark-Denmark-Stockholm, I got my passport stamped in Denmark and then when I arrived in sweden I didn't see passport control anywhere. But this year I'm going from Newark straight to Stockholm so I'm wondering if when we land, it'll be on a side with passport control. This is my second time traveling, just genuinely curious!


  • Connection time
    Dec 7, 2016
    Hello there , I am travelling from San Diego to Bremen Germany but going through Amsterdam airport and the lay over is 50 min, so I will be going with CLM airlines, I would like to know if I can make it with my pet in 50 min? also do I have to go through immigration in Amsterdam? note that I will only 9 have a carry on and my pet will me !


    Yes, you will go through Schengen Entry Passport control in Amsterdam. 50 minutes should be just enough time.


  • Airlines terminal Location and distance between councourse
    Dec 6, 2016
    Im travelling by delta from PDX to Seattle and the connecting to Emirates to dubai. I have 2 hours and 50 minutes between flights. How far are the gates?


    Do you have checked bags or not? Delta and Emirates do not have an interline agreement. If you do not have checked bags and check in online for your Emirates flight it is a very easy connection as you will arrive in A or B and depart from S.


  • Customs and Immigration
    Dec 6, 2016
    We are coming in UA1090 from Houston and transferring to LAN621, both gates in Terminal 1. Do we have to go through Customs and Immigration


    Yes, you will have to go through Mexican Immigration and Customs.


  • 2H11mins to connect in IAH from YUL to MEX, is it enough?
    Dec 5, 2016
    Travel UA codeshare AC from YUL to IAH connecting to MEX. Where do we clear customs? do I need to claim baggage and do customs/inmigration at IAH and check in for MEX or do I only need to transfer from Terminal A to E?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.


    Thanks a lot!

  • Will I make my flight on time?
    Nov 7, 2016
    Hi, I have a flight on Wednesday 11/9/16 at 7:40 and will not be able to get there until 6:15-6:20. Will I be able to make it with security?


    AM or PM? What airline? You should be OK but I can't guarantee it.


    It is PM and with United Airlines. Just need to make it through security.


    In that case that's barely enough time.
