  • Flying From ORD to SFO
    Apr 9, 2017

    I have a flight that gets into Minneapolis (MSP) at 7:11 and I need to be at my next flight in the same terminal leaving for SFO at 7:55. Is that nearly enough time to grab my baggage from the first flight, get it checked and put through for the next flight and get to that flight in time? And if not will Delta Airlines charge me anything to be put onto a new flight? Both flights are on the same ticket. MSP is just my layover.

     

    Since both flights are on the same ticket you don't have to do anything with your bags in MSP. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the flight from Chicago is on-time.

     

    Does that include bags beyond my carry on and personal item? Or would they automatically transfer it to the other plane without my having to grab it? I'm a first time flyer so I don't really know how any of it works

    Yes, checked bags are automatically transferred on domestic flights.

    I arrive at JFK at 7:15pm from DeGaulle (France). Can I clear customs and make flight leaving JFK at 9:30 pm to DC?

     

    Is it two separate reservation or one reservation? What airlines? Do you have checked bags?

     

    2 different airlines.. Air France and American. Yes, checked bags. Thanks!

     

    Then no, that's not enough time.

    Arriving to Houston at 8;40 pm from Dallas in for a connecting flight to Omaha. Our flight will be departing at 9;30 pm Will I have enough time to get to the gate? Do i have to go through security going from one terminal to the next?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.

    Leaving ORD to LAX on April 13, 2017 at 4:38 pm on Spirit at Terminal 3 and would like to know how early do I get to the airport. Coming from downtown Chicago by Uber

     

    You need to be at the airport around 3, which means you need to leave downtown about 2.

    Flying from Indy to ATL and then on to Mexico City. Is 50 minutes enough time to catch that flight? We won't go through customs until mexico City, correct? t

     

    Correct, there is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the flight from Indianapolis is on-time.

    My ex-boyfriend dumped me one week ago after I accused him of seeing someone else and insulting him. I want him back in my life but he refuse to have any contact with me. I was so confuse and don't know what to do, so I reach to the Internet for help and I saw a testimony of how a spell caster help them to get their ex back so I contact the spell caster and explain my problem to him and he cast a spell for me and assure me of 2 days that my ex will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my ex came knocking on my door and beg for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married. Once again thank you PRIEST ADE. You are truly talented and gifted.

  • Rush hour and parking

    Coming from Lake Geneva Wisconsin to O'Hare. Flight is United at 10:20 AM. Any advise on what time to leave to avoid rush hour and have ample time to park?

     

    You'll have to leave before 6 AM to avoid rush hour. However, if you leave at like 7 you will hit a bit of traffic but should be OK.

    We arrive in Dallas at one terminal from St. Louis and need to go to another to go on to London. We only have 45 min. Is that possible to connect to an international flight? Will we have to collect our baggage before we board our other flight? It is same airline> Thanks

     

    Yes, that is enough time. you don't have to do anything with your bags in Dallas on your way to London. All you have to do is take the Skylink train from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I'm getting in to Vancover via Air Canada at 9:30 am (Terminal M, Main) and flying Air Canada to Anchorage at 12:05( Teminal M, Main). Two seperate reservations. Do I have enough time?

     

    That should be enough time. If you show your Anchorage confirmation to the Air Canada agent in your first city you can have your bags checked through to Anchorage and go straight to US Immigration and Customs preclearance in Vancouver.
