  • long walk ?
    Feb 17, 2015
    we have a 40 minute layover in DTW and we have to go from concourse B or C to concourse A. How long does it take to walk through the tunnel to get to con. A ?


    Less than 5 minutes - it's not very long. If you speedwalk you could probably seriously do it in less than a minute.


  • short layover

    we are flying delta and supposed to arrive in LAX and only have a 40 minute layover and we are seated in the back on the plane row 35 are we going to make our next flight from LAX to SAN


    If both flights are on Delta that should be enough time. All Delta flights are in the rather small Terminal 5.


    How long does it take to walk through the tunnel from concourse B or C to concourse A ? I only have a 40 minute layover.


    I'm traveling from Manchester to Amsterdam to Edmonton. Will I have to go through customs in Amsterdam? My arriving flight, I will have 1 hour and 50 minutes on the ground. My return flight, I will be on the ground for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Is that enough time?

    Changing airlines from US Air 2091 to American flight 7 on 02/15. Does baggage have to be claimed & rechecked or will it be transferred?


    If you purchased your tickets together your bags will be transferred automatically.


  • Time
    Feb 6, 2015
    Hello, me and my family, including infant are planning to fly from NYC to Vienna. We have just 55 minutes to change terminals at the airport in Rome. When booking I did not realize there was only 55 minutes to change the terminal 3 to 1. I am traveling with the infant and I don't think the time is sufficient enough not to miss the flight connection. what do u think?


    It should barely be enough time. Passport controls in Rome are usually pretty quick and you won't have to do anything with your baggage.

  • Flight to maldives
    Dec 20, 2014
    Can you tell me, how can i go to maldive by using RBA flight?


    What is "RBA flight" RBA is Rabat, Morocco. Do you mean Royal Brunei Airlines? Royal Brunei Airlines does not fly to the Maldives. No airlines fly nonstop from Brunei to the Maldives. Malaysia Airlines flies from Kuala Lumpur to the Maldives. The airport code for Male, the capital of the Maldives is MLE. You could also get from Brunei to Male connecting in Singapore.

    I am traveling from Phoenix sky harbor to dallas forth worth with usa airways , but I don't know what gate will arise I want to know because my bf will be picking me up


    Your boyfriend can't go to your arrival gate anyway. You will know your arrival terminal and gate the day of your flight. Tell your boyfriend to look online or with his phone when he goes to pick you up.


  • Airport change and baggage problem
    Nov 7, 2014
    Hi there ! I have a flight from Toronto to Newyork and then a layover change of airport flight from Newark to Mumbai (India). 1. My Newyork flight lands at 10am and have my 2nd flight from Newark at 4.25pm. ( have a 6.5 hours gap betwwen my next flight from Newark). What is the best and cheapest way to get to Newark airport from Newyork airport since it takes 2 hours to reach Newark airport. I don't want to spend much money since I am a student. 2. I will have to collect my baggage from Newyork airport and re-check in at Newark airport. I have a US visa, can I board my flight from Newark since my tickets are already booked for 2nd of December and non refundable. I am very confused and upset on how to tackle this situation. Please suggest the best and cheapest way and to be on time for my flight. Would appreciate a quick reply from you. Thank you.


    New York has 2 airports in addition to Newark. Are you arriving at LGA or JFK? The route to Newark is different depending on what airport you are arriving at. Why don't you think you can board your flight from Newark if you have a US Visa? You should have plenty of time to get between airports. Even using public transit the trip between airports should be less than 3 hours.


    I am arriving at JFK airport in New York. Sounds perfect. But what is the cheapest way to get to Newark liberty international airport? If Air train is a good option. How do I take the air train once I arrive? I also need to collect my baggage once I arrive Newyork JFK.


    Yes, both of those airports are connected to the train system. TO take the train, you take the JFK AirTrain to the Jamaica/Sutphin station and transfer to the Long Island Railroad to Penn Station, then at Penn Station, transfer to the New Jersey Transit Northeast Corridor Train towards Trenton. You will exit at the Newark Airport station and take the EWR Airtrain to your departure terminal.


    Oh ok. And how much do I pay for my whole Air train trip to Newark Airport from Newyork JFK Airport? Where do I need to go to enquire about the air train in New York JFK airport once I arrive? Sorry, I am a little confused since will be doing change of airports for the first time and don't want to get lost and waste time


  • T5 to T3 connections
    Nov 2, 2014
    I am flying in from Spain on Iberian arriving at T5 with just under two hours for a connection on Envoy to YYZ. What do I have to do re baggage and getting to T3 Thank You.


    Upon arrival at T5 you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and then re-check your bags at the transfer desk. Then you will go up two levels to the ATS train and take it one stop to T3 and go through security.


  • Do I have to take luggage out in Dallas for a 10 hour layover?
    Nov 2, 2014
    I will fly from Calgary, Canada to Miami, Florida, has a 10 hours layover in Dallas, will my luggage be sent from Calgary to Miami directly? Just wonder if I have to drag my luggage around until the next morning for a 5 am connecting flight? Is there a high chance of my luggage of being lost if it sits in the airport for 10 hours to the next connecting flight? Thanks
