    You just have to go through security and to departure gate


    You have enough time

    I am flying from Mexico City to Dallas Fort Worth I have an hour and 25 minutes between arriving and connecting on a flight to San Diego. Is this enough time on a Tuesday?


    No, that is 5 minutes shorter than the minimum International to Domestic time and 35 minutes shorter than what I recommend.

    Taking a Delta flight SFO to LAX to Costa Rica with a 1.5 hr layover in LAX. Is 1.5 hour layover sufficient for LAX? Also, would 1.5 hr layover be sufficient coming back from Costa Rica to LAX to SFO?


    1.5 hrs on the way there is easy, you just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. On the return it will be considerably more difficult as you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security. But it's still possible.

    Will I make it


    There is no such airline as "Canadair". That is a type of airplane.

    Hi - Im flying from NYC to LAX scheduled to land at 9.50pm. My connecting flight to SYD is scheduled to depart at 10.35pm. I will have 45 mins. Delta tells me this is within their "minimum" connection times which I assume is 30 mins. I'd like others opinions on this before I challenge it. Thanks


    It is within their minimum connection time and is certainly doable if your flight from New York is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 5.


    Also, why did you ask this in the Atlanta airport forum if you are connecting at LAX?


  • Sioux Falls, SD to Paris France w/ connecting flight in Minneapolis
    Aug 17, 2015
    I'll be flying out of Sioux Falls, SD to Paris France with a connecting flight in Minneapolis. I will be on SKYWEST out of Sioux Falls, then I change to Delta out of Minneapolis. I have 1 hour will that be enough time and do I need to do anything with my check bag?


    All you have to do in MSP is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Nothing with your baggage. You should have plenty of time.

  • is distance ok for elderly person to walk ?
    Aug 3, 2015
    I will be arriving in Charlotte on a flight from Asheville and connecting to Boston with 50 minutes in between. Will be walking with elderly parent. Would that be enough time and is the distance walkable?

    My82 year old mom needs to connect on a united express domestic flight with 55 minute layover. I presume this will be terminal c or d , will she need cart transportation or is the terminal easily walkable?


    Some United Express flights use A, while others use C/D. C/D are easily walkable. If she arrives in A, then she will take the Aerotrain or Mobile Lounge to C or D. She should have enough time if her first flight is on-time.


  • Layover in phl 45 could i make my connection?
    Jul 22, 2015
    So i arrive at phl at terminal f i only have 45min to get to my next terminal. Will this be enough time to make my connection. By the way im flying a domestic flight


    It's barely enough time if the first flight is on-time.


  • arriving in one terminal and leaving another
    Jul 21, 2015
    I will be flying in from Detroit to terminal B and picking up a connecting flight out of terminal C, do I have to get my luggage before going to the other terminal or will it be automatically put on the other plane? and will I have enough time to get from one terminal to the other without going through security or will I have time. Only have 51 min. between flights


    If both tickets are purchased together on American/US Airways your bags will be transferred and you can take their airside bus between terminals avoiding security. If you purchased two separate tickets and have checked bags this is an impossible transfer.

    first time flying. arriving flight from LAX to DEN is at 9:04am departing flight to Minot,ND is 10:00am do i need to check in my baggage in DEN? where do i go when i arrive to DEN?family of 4 would i have enough time?


    If you have checked bags you will not have to claim them in DEN, however, if you have any large carry-ons you will gate check them in Denver because the plane to Minot is small (you just put the green tag they give you on your bag). All you have to do in Denver is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate which will both be in the B concourse. You have enough time.


  • Jump out to NYC
    Jun 21, 2015
    I will be arriving in JFK at 11:05 - What is the estimate time I will need to enter us? Then again I would like to check-in at 15:30 to my 17:00 Flight to Las Vegas. Will I have time to jump out to Manhattan between the two?


    You probably be out of customs by about 1200. you don't really have time to go into manhattan. It takes over an hour each way.


    If I am out by 12 then 15:30 I have 3 hours 30 minutes. 1:30 will be enough.
