I am flying from US to Amsterdam then to Hamburg. Is an hour and 50 minutes enough transfer time? Will have checked baggage - all delta flights.
Yes, that should be enough time. In Amsterdam you just have to go through passport control and to your departure gate. Note that your flight to Hamburg will be operated by KLM.
I am thinking about booking a Jetblue flight from CHS to JFK that lands at 11:39 AM. I am not checking any bags and need to make it to a Korean Air flight by 2 PM for Thailand. Will I have enough time? Do I need to go through security again?
Yes, you will have to go through security again, but other than changing terminals that's it. You have enough time as long as the Jetblue flight is on-time.
We will have an 8 hour layover on our way from Chicago to Madrid. We are planning to go into the city. How much is a taxi from Newark airport to Times Square and how long would it take? Is a taxi our fastest option?
It would take over an hour and cost $60 each way. I don't recommend it. For the limited amount of time you will be there, it's honestly not worth it.
That's a bummer as we purposely planned the extended layover so we could spend the day in the city. Now we will spend 8+ hours in the airport! Guess I should've checked into it before I made the plane reservations 😩
As you can see I've a connection flight from DFW to LAW coming from FRA. Do I need to get my luggage in DFW and re-check? It' s not much time to get the connection flight ( from Terminal D to B ) and I've had some knee surgeries, so I'm not a very fast walker at this time :-)
Hi we are flying into Newark from Manchester and then transferring to a flight to Orlando. we have 2hrs 10 mins between the flights when arriving and 1hr 12 mins between flights when we return home. do these timescales give us enough time ? also what terminals do we arrive and leave from and what is the best way to travel between them. Thank you - all advice is much apperciated
Hi - sorry forgot so say, we are flying with United Airlines on all flights.
Is the 1hr 45m layover enough time to clear customs in Seattle? Both legs are on Delta. I also will have Global Entry.
With Global Entry you should be able to make this.
Do you know if one has to pick up luggage first if connecting flight is on the same airline?
Yes, you have to pick up your luggage to go through US Customs then immediately re-check it at the re-check desk before proceeding through security and to your departure gate.
flying from Slc to Houston to Amsterdam, where do I go through security check, I only have 1 hour layover in Amsterdam. will I make it?
You are going Salt Lake City-Houston-Amsterdam? You will go through security in Salt Lake City and Schengen Passport Control and Customs in Amsterdam. What is your layover in Amsterdam? Where are you flying after that? What airlines are you flying?
I'm flying United with a 1 hour layover in Amsterdam and connecting with Polish lot in Amsterdam.
Then if everything is on the same reservation in Amsterdam you just have to go through passport control and to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Has anyone had any problems with Lufthansa miles or?
Thanks in advance for any help here...we are flying Open Skies from NYC into Orly, landing 9:30 am. Then, on a separate ticket to be purchased, flying Orly-Marseille. No checked bags. How much time do we need to make a connection? Do we pass through any kind of customs? Looks like Open Sky lands Ouest terminal and AF departs out of Ouest as well? Could we make a 11:15 am flight? Thanks!
Yes, at ORY you will go through Passport control. With no checked bags you could maybe barely make the 11:15 flight if you check in online for your flight to Marseille before you leave New York.
Hi, I have a flight from Detroit to Anchorage with a 50 minute connection in SEA, all with Alaska airlines. Do you think this is enough time? Will I need to recheck my luggage?
Yes, that should be enough time. You don't have to do anything with your baggage. Just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
