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.
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.
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).
Hi ! I will fly from DUBAI to ATLANTA (DL7) and then ATLANTA to WASHINGTON from flight DL201 which will arrive at 10:54.
My question is: in which Terminal /Gate in Washington I will arrive? Is there any separate Terminals for domestic flights? Thanks
You will arrive in concourse E or F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse.
If I'm flying from Regina, SK and stopping in MSP to connect onto my flight to San Jose, CA, would an hour and 10 mins be enough time to go through customs and recheck baggage?
It should be enough time.

Expedia booked my round trip flights with 40 minute layovers. I didn't realize it was cutting it pretty close. Thankfully, I have the same airline for the connections. Should I be okay with 40 mins? It's definitely added stress. If I had paid attention, I would've opted for a longer layover.
Just for added detail - I am going from ORD to PIT and then back home from PIT to EWR. No int'l flights.
40 minutes should be sufficient if your first flight is on-time for a domestic single airline connection at ORD. But as you can imagine, it doesn't leave much time to spare for a delay.
Do not check a bag when flying Southwest into BWI. The wait is horrible. Service/ staff might as well be a third world country.

And no one of them seem to care?????????
"3 world county" like America?
Anyone knows airport taxi from sfo airport? I don't need shuttle service.
Found this quickly on google - I'm sure other services will include a child seat if you call ahead as well. http://www.airporttaxicabservices.com/faq
All flights with DL, transit/transfer at ATL 2 hrs.Can my baggage be checked through to SXM from YYZ? Do I have go tru Immigration & Customsnat ATL. Is 2 hrs layover enough for the ATL/SKM flight?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. You will not have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta. All you will have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where your flight to SXM will depart.
