  • Enough Time
    Jan 12, 2017
    I am flying from Halifax to Toronto then to Cuba. I have about 1 hour and 20 mins between flights. Do I have enough time? and do I have to exit and go through security again or can I just go to my gate for the cuba flight


    If both flights are on Air Canada or both flights are on Westjet you can just walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Toronto.


    Thank you


  • Flying from Auckland via Brisbane to Vancouver
    Jan 2, 2017
    My wife and I will be taking the above trip on May 9 (AC36) we are trying to find out if 2 1/2 hours is sufficient transfer time in Brisbane.We have heard 2 stories, one says you will be okay because you don't have to collect your luggage and go thru customs and the other says you must collect your luggage and go thru customs so 2 1/2 hours will not be enough. Can you help us determine which is correct, please.

    Is it reasonably possible to make it from Terminal E when my international flight from Heathrow lands at 12:19 PM to my next flight to MSP in Terminal A that takes off at 2:20 PM? Both are Delta and booked on same ticket.


    I think it's possible if the first flight is on-time.

  • Layover time Toronto - Chicago - Seattle
    Dec 9, 2016
    We are flying United Toronto to Chicago with a 1hour layover and checked bags before flying to Seattle. Will we need to recheck bags and go through US customs in Chicago? Or is 1hour enough?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Chicago is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • Which terminal to LaGuardia does united fly out of?

    Which terminal to LaGuardia does United fly out of?


    United does not fly to Houston-Hobby airport. They fly to Houston-Intercontinental. Flights from Houston-Intercontinental to LaGuardia would almost always depart from Terminal C.


    Thanks for the reply


  • Enough time for transit
    Nov 28, 2016
    I am going to Doha from Dallas and I am going to reach Dallas before 90 minutes of flight so is it enough time for transit luggage claim and check in next flight?


    Where are you flying into Dallas from? Are both flights on the same reservation or are they two separate reservations?


    I am flying to Dallas from Queretaro Maxico by AA and going to Doha by Qutar Airways


    Then that is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

  • Flyin from Denver International to dallas love field
    Oct 5, 2016
    Can i fly to dallas love field from denver international airport with my mexican consular id


    No, a Mexican Consular ID is not acceptable identification to go through security. You need to use your Mexican passport if you do not have a US drivers license.

  • Travel only with carry-on bag
    Sep 22, 2016
    During my last USA holidays, I was travelling from Zurich to Chicago and had to catch a connecting flight. I was worried I would not make my connecting flight, with going through immigration, getting and re-checking luggage and changing terminals so I only had a carry-on suitcase and was able to use the one-stop transfer. Result - I made it through immigration in less than 10 minutes! You also bypass the whole luggage retrieval area and come out in the arrivals hall. And this during a Friday afternoon, holiday week-end. One-stop is the way to travel!


  • Transit in sfo to Toronto, do I need a US visa?

    I'm have a flt fr Sg transit in sfo to Toronto.. Just wondering do I need to clear custom and emigration and do I need a US visa? To do the trasit in sfo? Pls advise, thanks


    You will go through US Immigration and Customs in SFO. Whether or not you need a transit visa depends on your citizenship. What is your citizenship?


  • Will We Have Enough Time
    Aug 30, 2016
    Hi, I am traveling to Boston on Delta arriving at 7:45 p.m. Then I am departing on Aer Lingus at 9:00 a.m. I am switching airlines and am wondering if I will have enough time to get from the Delta gate to the Aer Lingus gate. Is there a security line to go through?


    I'm guessing you depart at 9 PM? Yes, you will have to go through security again. With checked bags this is impossible. With no checked bags this is barely possible if everything goes smoothly.


  • Dual Canadian Citizenship, from HKG to YYZ
    Aug 23, 2016
    I am a Canadian citizen and a citizen of a visa-exempt country (dual Canadian citizen) flying with Air Canada, from HKG to YYZ, since i'm going to have a transit at YVR, do I need to prepare for any visa or the eTA? am I allowed to enter YVR with my visa-exempt country passport or must I use my Canadian passport due to the new Bill C-24? and what kind of security process am I going to go through once I landed to YVR? Also, what kind of security questions would the officer asked me?


    No if you enter on your Non-Canadian passport you need to do eTA. If you enter on your Canadian passport, you obviously don't. I Seen no reason not to enter on your Canadian passport.


  • Delta Airlines Minimum Connection Times
    Aug 18, 2016
    Delta charged their schedule and I now have 35 minutes to connect between domestic flights. Is this enough time? Thanks


    It's possible - it obviously leaves no time to spare if there's a delay.
