  • arriving and departing at same terminal in 50 minutes
    Jan 12, 2016

    we are arriving from Calgary at terminal C and departing to Guatemala from terminal C. Would that be right?

     

    That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. Your flight to Guatemala will depart from Terminal E.

     

  • Arriving from EWR at 2E & Departing 2F for LIN

    We arrive 2E from EWR (Air France) and have one hour to get to 2F for our flight to LIN (Alitalia). We both have EU passports and can get through shorter line. What are odds both us and our bags make it onto the flight for LIN?

     

    That should be enough time.

     

  • Connection Times on Delta

    Late Jan - DL flight arrives 6:30 PM and international flight leaves 7:32 - too early to tell which terminals. DL says it's okay.

     

    Yes, if the first flight is domestic or precleared that should be enough time. All International flights leave from Terminal 4. If you arrive in Terminal 2 it is connected to Terminal 4 inside security by a shuttle bus.

     

  • Layover

    I am a first time flyer. I will be flying from CLT to Houston with a connecting flight to Portland Or. Is 42 minutes enough time to make the next flight?

     

    If both flights are on United that is enough time as long as the first flight is on-time. The SkyWay/Terminalink train connects all terminals inside security if you have to change terminals. However, it doesn't leave much time if the first flight is delayed.

     

  • can i connect from southwest to jet blue

    i have a connecting flight on jet blue and my southwest incoming flight arrives 1 our earlier. do i have time to make the connection if my flight comes into terminal 1 and my connection goes out of terminal 3? do i need to go through tsa security again?

     

    This will be very difficult unless your Southwest flight arrives very early and you have no checked baggage. It is possible to take the train from Terminal 1 to the D concourse and then the D concourse to Terminal 3/E concourse. It's very difficult.

  • JFK to LGA

    Hi, I am arriving from Morocco 4:45pm at JFK. My flight is 9:50pm at LGA to CHI. Do I have enough time to take a shuttle from JFK to LGA to make the 9:50pm flight? I want to use this shuttle service: http://www.nycairporter.com/ Appreciate your thoughts!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You should be on the road by 6 PM, at LGA by 7.

     

  • overnight layover jfk

    My flight from the uk lands jfk 23.05 my connecting flight to Honolulu is 08.15 the next morning. Is it worth paying for a hotel for such few hours? Are the facilities at the airport able to accommodate such a layover?

     

    Personally, I would hang out in the terminal as this is quite a short layover. On paper, this looks like a 9 hour layover, but when you factor in time to deplane, transit to hotel and back to airport at least 90 minutes before flight departure, you might be lucky to get 5 hours of sleep. It is up to you to decide if that is sufficient for you to go through hassle to get there and back, and then if it is worth the extra cost. My decision matrix requires at least 12 hours and no lounge access. I need to get at least 7 hours of sleep in a hotel bed for me to consider it worth the expense. I would actually prefer to pay for lounge access if lounge also features showers...the SkyClub in terminal where international flights operate has showers and a restaurant. JFK has terminal seats that can accommodate a person stretching out and early operating hours for food establishments.

     

  • connection time

    we are looking at a flight that arrives via Iceland Air, the we need to catch a plane on Delta and the coonection time is about 1 hr 45 min. That seems tight to go though customs and all. Is it too tight?

     

    That is not enough time as Delta operates from the Lindbergh terminal (T1) and Icelandair operates from the Humphrey terminal (t2). You will have to take your bags on the train with you from T1 to T2. Depending on where your final destination is, you may save time by booking on an airline that flies from T2 (Sun Country or Southwest).
