  • 45 minute layover
    Mar 29, 2015
    we're flying from sfo through copenhagen to nice with 45 minute layover. will we need to go through customs or recheck bags? seems tight!


    Yes, you will have to go through Schengen passport control. You won't have to do anything with your bags. That will be a difficult connection, but Copenhagen is not a large or complex airport.


  • SFO to LAX to London Heathrow layover
    Mar 14, 2015
    Hi, I'm travelling from SFO to LHR on the 17th of March with a layover of 2hrs 48 minutes in LAX. Will this be sufficient time? My connecting flight arrives at terminal 5 and my flight to LHR departs from terminal 5 also. My connecting flight was booked through Delta and my flight to Heathrow is through Virgin but operated by Delta, can I still get my luggage tagged for London and my boarding passes printed off at SFO?


    Yes, your baggage will be checked through to London and both boarding passes will be issued in SFO. You will have plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from gate to gate.


  • Southwest Plane connections
    Feb 6, 2015
    I am flying on Southwest From Ontario, California to Kansas with a change of Southwest planes in PHX. There is a 1hr 10m stop over in PHX between planes. I need to travel by Wheel Chair and my companion walks but due to health issues can not rush or run. Is there enough time between planes to make a safe connection? How good/ on time is wheel chair pick up at PHX? Thanks for your response.


    You should have PLENTY of time.


  • Transfers from the UK at Dulles
    Feb 5, 2015
    I am thinking of flying from London to Charlottesville VA vis Dulles - both with UNITED. The transfer time in 1 hour 40. Do I have to go through immigration at Dulles or can I walk from one plane to the next?


    In Dulles, you will arrive in the C/D concourse, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and then go to your departure gate on the A concourse via the AeroTrain or Mobile Lounge.


  • Connection
    Feb 2, 2015
    I am flying in from LHR to CLT then off to PHX, my connection time is 1hr24mins is that enough time to make it to my next flight? (I carry a British passport)


    That will be close. it's 6 minutes below the minimum connection time. However, CLT is not a crowded airport so I think you have a good chance. Also US Airways has many flights from CLT to PHX in case your miss your connection.


  • JFK to LGA
    Jan 4, 2015
    Hi, I am arriving from Morocco 4:45pm at JFK. My flight is 9:50pm at LGA to CHI. Do I have enough time to take a shuttle from JFK to LGA to make the 9:50pm flight? I want to use this shuttle service: Appreciate your thoughts!


    Yes, that should be enough time. You should be on the road by 6 PM, at LGA by 7.


  • overnight layover jfk
    Dec 31, 2015
    My flight from the uk lands jfk 23.05 my connecting flight to Honolulu is 08.15 the next morning. Is it worth paying for a hotel for such few hours? Are the facilities at the airport able to accommodate such a layover?


  • connection time
    Dec 9, 2014
    we are looking at a flight that arrives via Iceland Air, the we need to catch a plane on Delta and the coonection time is about 1 hr 45 min. That seems tight to go though customs and all. Is it too tight?


    That is not enough time as Delta operates from the Lindbergh terminal (T1) and Icelandair operates from the Humphrey terminal (t2). You will have to take your bags on the train with you from T1 to T2. Depending on where your final destination is, you may save time by booking on an airline that flies from T2 (Sun Country or Southwest).


  • In which Terminal, Gate will I arrive?
    Nov 18, 2014
    Hi ! I will fly from DUBAI to ATLANTA (DL7) and then ATLANTA to WASHINGTON from flight DL201 which will arrive at 10:54. My question is: in which Terminal /Gate in Washington I will arrive? Is there any separate Terminals for domestic flights? Thanks


    You will arrive in concourse E or F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse.


  • Regina - MSP - San Jose
    Nov 15, 2014
    If I'm flying from Regina, SK and stopping in MSP to connect onto my flight to San Jose, CA, would an hour and 10 mins be enough time to go through customs and recheck baggage?


    It should be enough time.

  • 40 min connection
    Oct 24, 2014
    Expedia booked my round trip flights with 40 minute layovers. I didn't realize it was cutting it pretty close. Thankfully, I have the same airline for the connections. Should I be okay with 40 mins? It's definitely added stress. If I had paid attention, I would've opted for a longer layover.


    Just for added detail - I am going from ORD to PIT and then back home from PIT to EWR. No int'l flights.


    40 minutes should be sufficient if your first flight is on-time for a domestic single airline connection at ORD. But as you can imagine, it doesn't leave much time to spare for a delay.


  • Southwest baggage claim at BWI worst in the country
    Oct 13, 2014
    Do not check a bag when flying Southwest into BWI. The wait is horrible. Service/ staff might as well be a third world country. And no one of them seem to care?????????


  • Looking for taxi with child seat at sfo?
    Sep 27, 2014
    Anyone knows airport taxi from sfo airport? I don't need shuttle service.


    Found this quickly on google - I'm sure other services will include a child seat if you call ahead as well.

    Sep 14, 2014
    All flights with DL, transit/transfer at ATL 2 hrs.Can my baggage be checked through to SXM from YYZ? Do I have go tru Immigration & Customsnat ATL. Is 2 hrs layover enough for the ATL/SKM flight?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. You will not have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta. All you will have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where your flight to SXM will depart.
