    Hi, Im flying from Istanbul to Houston with Turkish Airways and then from Houston to Mexico City via Aeromexico. I only have one hour and a half to make the connection in houston to mexico. Do I need to pick up my baggage and pass through security?

     

    Yes, if you purchased two separate reservations you will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then go to the Aeromexico check-in desk, then go through security. 90 minutes is not enough time to do that.

     

    Thanks from your response. Do you know if it's possible to ask Turkish airways to send my luggage directly to Mexico City? So that I don't waste time picking them up. They reschedule the time and that's why I have so little time for connection.

     

    You have to pick up your bags anyway to go through US Customs. The only difference if they were checked through to MEX is that you can re-check them at the re-check desk after customs vs. having to bring them to the Aeromexico ticket counter to re-check them. It doesn't hurt to ask the Turkish Airways agent at your origin city. Show them your Aeromexico confirmation. However, since the two airlines are in rival alliances and you purchased two separate tickets, I'm inclined to believe that they will not do so.

     

  • Enough time

    Hi we are travelling from Brisbane to Calgary via LAX and Seattle on one ticket with Virgin/ Delta We have 4 hours at LAX and understand after customs we drop our bags and collect them at out final destination ( hopefully ), we have no terminal advice at this stage but understand 4 hours is ample, just concerned about 60 minute connection in Seattle for Calgary,

     

    In Seattle all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, you should have enough time. All gates in Seattle are connected inside security.

     

    thank you, now I can stop stressing

    I am the same person who commented about the 45 min layover. Can I leave incheon, south korea with my filipino passport and enter Seattle with my US passport? I highly doubt this is possible but for some reason my dad THINKS its okay no matter how much I argue with him about it.

     

    Yes, it is possible. If you have a US passport they are obligated to let you in with it.

    I will have my flight at 5 am and think to go to the airport the night before like about 11 pm. Will I be available to check my luggage and stay over at the airport?

     

    No, you won't be able to check your bags until the desks open in the morning, about 3:30-4 AM.

     

  • Can you fix the security wait times?

    The security checkpoint wait times page is a wonderful idea. However in Atlanta, for example, waits of well over an hour are not so unusual. Having the highest category be "21+ minutes" is very unhelpful, and maybe misleading.

    I have heard there are floody situation going on in Texas & Dallas, i have a flight from dallas on saturday....what about weather conditions going on there ?

     

    Saturday is a long way off. The airport should be running at full capacity then unless there's another storm that is occurring at that time.
