  • Connecting flight AMS-ODR-SFO
    Aug 27, 2014

    I have connecting flight from AMS-ODR-SFO. Layover in Chicago is 1 hour and 45 minutes. I'm not an US-citizen, so my biggest concern is the lane at the migration. This is my first time at the O'hare airport, so I also don't know the distance from the migration to the baggage claim and from the baggage claim to the counter to drop off my bags again. Could you please tell me the connecting flight procedure? Is there a fast lane at the migration for people who need to catch their next flight? Is 1 hour and 45 minutes enough time to make the connection? And how far is the baggage claim to the drop off counter?

    Arriving UA from SAN to ESB connecting flight in IAH. do I have to collect checked baggage and re-check for the onward flight?

     

    You do not collect baggage or go through customs on connections when leaving the US. So, no.

    I am flying on July 19 from Santo Domingo to Atlanta with layover in NY at Kennedy airport? Do I go through immigration and customs in NY or Atlanta or both?

     

    You will go through US Immigration and customs in New York.

     

    no actually that is wrong, Atlanta will make you go through customs when you get off plane

  • Enough Time

    I arrive from IAD at 2:31 PM UA 1283 tomorrow and need to make a connecting flight UA 5560 to PSP which departs at 3:07 PM. I do not know what gates I arrive or take out of, the first United Airlines the second United Express. Will I have enough time? I will also be traveling alone with my two year old son, is there any assistance that I can request?

     

    The only way is the shuttle bus. T1 and T3 are closer than they look on the map.

    I am flying in from Mexico, do I need to go through customs again before boarding an ongoing flight?

     

    1 Hour is not enough time for your connection. You need to get an earlier flight from Venice. It can take a half hour to get from T1 where you arrive to T5 where you need to check in for your United flight. By the time you get there, you will have missed the bag and check-in cutoff time.

     

  • Son is on first international flight

    My son is flying United from Seattle to SFO and then taking Lufthansa to France. Where does he go through customs; Seattle or SFO? His layover at SFO in only about an hour and a half.

     

    He will only go through EU customs when he enters the EU in Germany after his lufthansa flight. You do not have to go through customs when exiting the US.

     

  • How long will it take for me to go to southwest airline terminal?

    Hi. I'm going to be flying in from SFO to LAX on Virgin American around 5:45. And then i have another flight from LAX to PHX on Southwest Airline at 8:15. I'm worried that I might not make it to the terminal because these two flights are not connected. How long will baggage claim take if I'm flying domestic? and do you think I'll make it to southwest and catch my flight on time?

     

    You should have enough time. Your bags will probably be out within 20 minutes of arrival. It's about a 10-15 minute walk along the curbfront from T3 to T1 (walk to the left, against the flow of traffic).

    I am flying from Regan National airport to IAH on my way to Mexico. Do I have to go through customs security in IAH since Regan is not International?

     

    You do not have to go through customs when you LEAVE the country, only when you enter. You will go through customs for the country you are traveling to when you arrive there.
