  • DXB- AMS / AMS - NCL
    Apr 11, 2017

  • Connecting through Brussels from Montreal to Madrid
    Mar 24, 2017
    Hello, I'm taking a SN flight (operated by AC) from YUL arriving at BRU 08:35 and then connecting to MAD on another SN flight departing at 09:25. Do I have to go through security check and clear custom again or just walk from one gate to another? Are the gates in the same terminal? Will 50 minutes be enough for the connection?

    I have 50 minutes to connect from an air berlin flight to another air berlin flight flying to dominican republic. I only have hand luggage, will this be too tight?


    Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time.

    I have a 50 Minute Layover in DEN. CMH-DEN-YVR (Vancouver). I'm worried I won't have enough time. All are booked with UA. Do I have to go through Security/Check In? (First time flying)

    Flying from victoria b.c to honalulu via seattle. My second flight leaves 1 and a half hours later on same itinerary. Do i have time to clear customs and whats the quickest way


    Yes, that is just enough time. There is no "way". You just follow the signs and stand in line.


  • BOS to BUD layover in AMS
    Mar 1, 2017
    Flying on one Delta reservation from BOS to BUD with a layover in AMS. Will baggage be checked all the way through to BUD? Will we need to go thru security again or go straight to next gate? First time international flyer.


    Yes, your baggage will go straight through to Budapest. All you have to do in Amsterdam is go through Schengen Entry Passport Control and to your departure gate.

    I will be travelling from Toronto to Houston then taking a connecting flight to Trinidad. Will I have to collect my baggage and check in in Houston will I have to


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skyway train connects all gates inside security.

    I arrival on terminal 1 from HCM city by Cathay and then transfer to New Zealand by Air New Zealand and then take off on the same terminal is that make sense or I have to change the terminal. I wonder if they have the specific gate for difference brand of plane. Thank for answer my question


    Both flights will be in the same terminal. if everything is on the same reservation you just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

  • AA connection from Quito-Miami-Boston

    We have a business class flight arriving Miami 12 noon, departing for Boston at 2 PM. Will that be enough time? Will we be going through customs in Miami?


    Yes, that is enough time. Yes, in Miami you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.

    Flying PHX-IAH then IAH-GSP Jan 25th. Arrive at IAH at 6:19PM. Boarding on flight to GSP ends at 7PM. Elderly flyer. Will we have enough time? How do I get a electric cart and/or wheelchair? Thank You!


    To get wheelchair service you call United and ask for Wheelchair service. That is just enough time if the flight from Phoenix is on-time, but you likely will have to go from Terminal C to Terminal B.

    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.
