  • In which Terminal, Gate will I arrive?
    Nov 18, 2014
    1
    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.

    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.

    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?????????

    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.

  • airlines to entebbe

    I'm flying to Entebbe, Uganda from San Francesco on the 26th of May. I'm trying desperately to avoid lengthy layovers. Any seasoned flyers to that part of the world with some advice on which airline. Dubai gives me a 13 hour layover. That would be all fine and dandy but the arrival time is 730ishPM and departure at 0430. By the time I get to a hotel, I've got 4 hours. Suggestions, oh weary travelers?

     

    DXB Dubai Int'l AP has 10 'SnoozeCubes in Terminal 1, gate 122 - each with full-sized bed, TV, WiFi- and connection to flight info sytem. It also has the swanky onAirport Dubai Int'l Hotel tel. 04 224 4000. If using Emirates, you would arrive at Terminal 3 (A & B gates) Otherwise you would arrive at T1 with C gates.

    im travelling from japan to ohare intl airport then my next flight is going to orlando i will wait for 3 hours can i see my relatives can they see me for an instance??? plsss help me

     

    Yes, you should have enough time if your flight is on-time. You will be exiting the secure side of the airport in Terminal 5 anyway so they can meet you there. When you're ready to depart you will take the ATS train to your departure terminal and go through security.

     

  • Sister arrival in Dec.
    Nov 9, 2013

    My sister is arriving Dec. 22 via United Airlines UA 981 at 6:50 a.m. She has a connecting flight to MDT via UA 3330 at 9:25 am. Does she still need to get her luggage after the customs or she will just get her luggage in the final destination (MDT)? Does she has an ample time to catch her connecting flight? Does she still need to check in in the United Airlines? Please advise. Any help will do.

     

    She will claim her bags after she goes through US Immigration in Washington DC. Then she will go through US Customs, then drop her bags with the re-check desk, go through security, and to concourse A where flight 3330 will depart. She should not have to check-in again as she should be given both boarding passes in Bahrain or Kuwait (wherever she starts her journey on UA981)

     

    Does she needs to take a shuttle going to Concourse A? Thanks again

     

    Yes, or the Aerotrain.

     

    where will she re-check i n her baggage? is there a designated counter for United? Thanks again

     

    There will be a re-check desk when she exist customs. It is used for all airlines, but nearly every international transfer passenger at IAD is connecting to a United flight.

     

  • enough time to connect in Detroit?

    I am flying from Phoenix to Detroit on Jan 10th, have a 44 min layover in Detroit, then going on to Manchester, NH. Is this enough time given the possible winter weather? Thank You

     

    It's a tight connection and you will arrive in the A concourse and likely depart from the B concourse, so you may have a bit of a walk. Hope that your first flight is on-time.

     

  • Unaccompanied Minor pick-up service at Denver?
    Oct 8, 2013

    My 14 yr old son will arrive from UK to Denver at 7.00pm, and needs to get to a hotel about 10 miles away. We do not know anyone in the area - is there a service that will meet him in the Arrivals hall, sign for him from the airline and take hiim to the hotel? Thanks for any local knowledge....

     

    All international arrivals at U.S. need to go through passport check, pick up bags, & go through customs clearance. Thereafter, he can call his hotel for a shuttle pickup or go outside to the taxi rank and take a taxi. For more information contact either the Airport at http://www.flydenver.com/contacts (Tweet @diatweets) - or Traveler's Assistance - located at Concourse B and Terminal Level 5, (303) 342-0400

     

    He's 14, I think he can handle an airport shuttle or a taxi.

     

    Thanks, he has travelled UM many times on long-haul internationally but not to a large unfamiliar airport, arriving at night in the US.

    i am flying from memphis to atlata ,terminal S and the connecting flight is to paris,terminal I,and have only 30 min to catch the flight and am fying by delta

     

    You will not arrive in Terminal S and depart from Terminal I. You actually will arrive in one of Atlanta's several domestic concourses and depart from concourse E/F. The Plane train connects all concourses within security. You will have enough time if your first flight is on-time and you hurry.
