Does anyone know what the gate number is that will allow you to connect to another terminal via shuttle bus? I will be at terminal 4 going to terminal 3. This will prevent having to go through security.
I have a 30 min layover time from flight AA T3 concourse G to AA T3 concourse L. Is this sufficient time? Also, is there anything else I would have to?
oh....and this is at O'hare aiport in Chicago.
Your layover is at Chicago O'Hare (ORD) - when arriving at Concourse G, just follow signs to Concourse L. Hurry!
I am flying from Detroit to Lihue airport, with a connecting flight at LAX do i have to claim my baggage there and recheck it or does it automatically go with me. thanks for any help
I arrive into IAH on Jan 3 at 10pm but, I have a long layover. for my flight to Belize dose not leave until 6am the next morning. . Am I allowed to sleep in the boarding area.
Google 'Sleeping at Airports'.
Have a flight that arrives in LAX from ATL at 2130 then connecting at LAX to SYD departing 2245 - that is an 1hr 15 layover - am I likely to make this flight?
That depends on the airline you take. You need to look at your ticket to see which gate you arrive/ depart from. T1 has gates 1-14; T2: 21-39; T3: 30-39; T4 42-49; T5 50-69; T6 60-69; T7 70-77; T8: 80-88. TB (aka TBIT or Bradley Terminal): gates 101-123. At ATL make sure your bags are properly tagged to LAX & SYD, so they will arrive in SYD. On arrival, if you need to get to another terminal, note that T5, 6 & 7 are connected by tunnel and T7 has walkway to T8 & T6. Alternatively, LAX's terminals are arranged in a U-shape, served by the LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island (in front of each terminal), under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', which runs every 12-15 mins. Starting from TBIT, the next stops are at T4 through T8, it then goes on to the opposite side with T1, T2, T3 and back to TBIT. Count 2.5 mins for each stop.
Thanks pilotjoe for details - am flying Delta into and out of LAX.
MY MOM IS FLYING ACROSS THE PUDDLE FOR THE FIRST TIME. THE TRICK IS SHE KNOWS NO ENGLISH. CAN SHE RELY ON SOMEONE'S HELP IN USA? (HER NATIVE LANGUAGE IS RUSSIAN)
When connecting in Canada ,do I need to have as transist visa to connect from London to Miami?
If you show up on time for checkin and do pack as required by TSA and do not opt to jump a earlier flight and have your Travel Agent book flights with enough connection time between flights you luggage will make it to its destination remember it takes at least 20 minutes to unload a plane upon arrival and if you are running to the next flight you will arrive at your final destination with out your luggage as luggage does not Run......make sure that you are not out for a smoke at the final destination as another pax bag take your bag in error...............it not always the airlines fault for delayed bag not lost bags
Two first time flyers transfer from AA 407 (arrives from ORD Thanksgiving Day) to AA 1173 (departs for DFW same day) Where are their gates? I understand AA used Concourse D is this correct?
As American /American Connection, American Eagle depart/ arrive from Terminal 3, you arrive and depart from either of these Concourses: G, H, K or L: The upper levels of terminal leads to L gates at left, Y-shaped Concourse K, with gates K1-K20 and Concourse H with gates H3-H18 in the center, and Concourse G with gates G1A-G21 to the left - with gates G13-G17 on the Concourse's lower level.
i have a flight from ABQ to SMF but have to change planess in SEA and only have a 15 min time to do so. will i have enough time??? It is my first time flying and i am doing it alone:\
15 mins for any connecting flights is absurd! When you enter ABQ you need to go through security check, check in your bag if you have one (other than your small on-board bag which should fit in the overhead bin or under your feet at the airplane)- your checked bags needs to have the tags for all 3 airports to arrive at SMF - then proceed to your gate. At SEA, depending on which airline you arrive at and depart from, you may have to switch: All concourses are connected at post-security, enabling passengers to freely move around without having to leave the secured area. The satellites are linked to the main terminal by continuously running underground loop trains. If your flight will depart from one of the satellite terminals, add an extra 10-15 minutes to your boarding schedule.
its my 1st time flying without someone helping me get to my gate HELP! I'm really scared cuz now since I'm 14 I'm 2 old for assistance like last year HELP ME!
You can still ask people especially airline staff with ID badges for help! Don't be bashful, ask the more people the better. Most people want to help. I am a father of two teenagers and I want to help you but I won't be there. God bless you and I pray you have a safe trip and a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
