  • Security check in Baggage
    Jan 14, 2016
    Hi...i am travaeling from portland to seattle by alaska airlines and have a flight from seattle to dubai .Tickets are in the same itenary Do I need to go for luggage collection and check in /Security checking again?Do I need to go for customs/immigration clearance or everything will be done in Portland itself? Please advice.Thanks in advance


    No, there is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Seattle is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    You will go through security in Portland and show your passport to the gate agent when boarding the flight to Dubai in Seattle.


    Thanks a lot

  • Long enough?
    Jan 9, 2016
    I am flying Am. Air to PHX my connection is also Am. Air to MIA is 1 hr. enough time?


    As long as the first flight is domestic, yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 4.

  • layover
    Jan 8, 2016
    Hi! I'll visit usa with travel visa. I'm arriving from Instanbul at 7:35 pm in terminal J with Turkish Airline. I have another flight at 9:54 pm from terminal D with American Airlines. These are two separate tickets. I will have just carry-on baggage and about 2 hours and 15 minutes layover. Will I make it?


    Yes, but you'll have to check in for your AA flight online before you leave Istanbul and hurry to terminal D after you clear customs.


  • What is Sufficient Transit time in LAX for International Flights
    Dec 28, 2015
    Hi, I am planning to fly from Toronto, Canada to Tokyo with a stopover at LAX. The incoming flight is Air Canada (Terminal 2 at LAX) and the departing flight is All Nippon Airways (Terminal TBIT at LAX). The time to connect is 90 mins. Is this enough time and do I have to checkout and recheck-in my bags at LA? Thanks.


    If both flights are on the same reservation you won't have to do anything with your bags in LAX. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. In LAX All you have to do is exit Terminal 2, walk to the International Terminal and go through security. You should have enough time.


  • Time between terminal B and C
    Dec 25, 2015
    H I will arrive at terminal B from Oslo with SAS at 13.25, and then depart form terminal c - terminal 2 with United Airlines at 15.41 on december the 28. So I have 2.16 hours. Is this enough time? Is this a busy day? 8des15 11:00 OSL-EWR Arr:13:25 UA1959 28des15 15:41 EWR-SAN Arr:19:00


    Yes that should be enough time. Yes that is a busy day.


  • FCO to PIT via JFK
    Dec 2, 2015
    I arrive at JFK at 6:55pm from FCO and will have the flight for PIT at 8:28pm... unique reservation with Alitalia-Delta... will 1h 33m be enough to transfer from T1 to T4 for the fly to PIT? Thanks!!! Fly is on dec 8th!!


    That should be just enough time if your flight from Rome is on-time. You will arrive in Terminal 1, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the AirTrain to T4 and go through security.


    Is the re-check desk just after US Customs?


    Yes, it is.


    Thanks a lot for the help! One last question: is the air train to T4 free?


    Yes, transfer between terminals is free.


    Thanks a lot!!!!


  • Directions?
    Dec 1, 2015
    I am arriving on allegiant airlines ....gate c....I have to pick up bags at baggage claim and connect on South west how do I do this


    You just follow signs to the baggage claim upon arrival - the Allegiant baggage claim is in Terminal 1 where you will arrive. Then take the escalator up to the esplanade, walk across the departure road (the esplanade has a bridge over the road), and then take the escalator down to the ticketing level and re-check your bags with Southwest.


  • Flight to Tokyo through Toronto
    Nov 22, 2015
    Two Questions.... Flying on Air Canada from ORD to Okinawa with layovers in Toronto (2-/12 hr) and Tokyo (3 hours). Will I have to do anything upon entering Canada or just go to my connecting gate for the Toronto to Tokyo portion of the trip? Second question. Flying out at 8:30 on Friday (11/27), checking 2 bags; will arriving 90 minutes early allow sufficient time? Wasn't sure if I needed more time over the holiday weekend. Thanks.


    You will have to go through Canadian Immigration in Toronto. 90 minutes should be enough time to check in, but if you can get there a little earlier it wouldn't hurt. Usually the day after Thanksgiving isn't too busy.

  • JFK connections
    Nov 3, 2015
    Flying from LHR to JFK with Virgin Atlantic and then i have a 8 hour layover to fly to St Thomas with Delta Airlines. Will I have to change terminals and collect my baggage and check back in ?


    In JFK you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk (if they are tagged through to STT), then go through security and to your departure gate, which will also be in Terminal 4.


  • Transit FRA - IAH - MGA
    Oct 27, 2015
    Hello, We will arrive to HOUSTON from FRANKFURT (Lufthansa) and we have our plane 1hours and 45mn after to MANAGUA, is that enough time to connect?? It is the only flight and we have a little baby so I can't miss my flight! Thanx


    That should be just enough time as long as your flight from Frankfurt is on-time.


  • Layover is only 45 minutes
    Oct 25, 2015
    We will be leaving BWI with a layover in ATL for 45 minutes before our connecting flight to Aruba. We have never been to Altanta and want to know if we will have enough time to get our next flight out.


    That is enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.


  • Disability
    Oct 23, 2015
    I have disability does it cost to get wheelchair to gate and from gate once you get to detonation and also if they want to change your seat on plane for better convenience ?


    Wheelchair service is free. Just notify your airline that you need it by calling them. They will also make sure you have a suitable seat.


    Also, however, you should tip the wheelchair person $5-$20 depending on how much time they spend with you.
