  • International flights in and out, need to clear immigraton?
    Nov 8, 2014
    1
    I arrive from Mexico and would leave to Spain three hours later. Do we need to clear immigraton and customs, or do we bypass and go direct to the connecting flight? I am traveling with American Airlines, both flights on the same ticket.

     

    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk. then go through security and to your departure gate.

    Daughter only has 30 Mins to connect from Seattle to HNL flight. At Seatac Airport. Both flights on Delta. Enough Time? THANKS!

     

    It should be enough time, but obviously doesn't leave much time for delays.

    Hi, I am looking at the following itinerary: ATL - SEA - NRT - BKK I arrive in SEA at 10:55am and my NRT flight departs at 11:25am. Do I have enough time to make my NRT flight? Thanks in advance for your insight!

     

    That should be enough time. Both of your flights will be in the S Satellite. However, it obviously leaves very little time to spare in case of delays.

     

    So, even though I'm catching an international flight (NRT = Narita, Tokyo) you think I can make it as long as there are not delays? I just wasn't sure about when they start closing the doors. Thanks!

     

  • How to reach from International to Domestic Terminal?

    I will be arriving From Dubai to Atlanta (Flight DL7 ) at Terminal INTL. I have next Flight to Washington DC (IAD) (Flight DL 201) which is from Terminal S. So how will I reach to Terminal S , from Terminal INTL? Is there any service I should know about, please? Thanks.

     

    You don't actually have to go to the S Terminal. Pleas look at the map. you will arrive in Concourse E or F, where you will go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, and go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk with Delta. Then you will go through security and then take the Plane Train directly to your departure concourse. There is no need to go to the actual S terminal.

    hi, i will be arriving at terminal A and have to take another flight from terminal C, i have 2 hrs and 20 minutes. how much time does it take to change terminal?

     

    That should be plenty of time - United runs a shuttle bus inside security between the two terminals. It shouldn't take more than 25-30 minutes.

    I am flying into DFW from Cancun with a final destination of Cleveland. We arrive at 8:35am on an AA flight and depart DFW at 10:10am (1:35 minute layover) also on American Airlines. Will that be enough time to make it through customs and onto our connecting flight?

     

  • baggage carts for passengers $5.00

    Why does msp airport continue to charge an exhorbitant price ($5) to rent baggage cart for a few minutes. If we ask a porter for help he will expect a $5 tip. I have traveled here and in Europe and China and rarely found an airport that does not make carts available for free.

    Have a 1.5 hr. connection in CLT coming in from (international) GCM before continuing on to BDL. Is that enough time to process through customs etc?

  • Transferring from Domestic to Intl Flight

    I'm transferring form Domestic (American Airlines) to Intl (Qatar Airways) and the time is only 1 hour. My ticket is not booked seperately and its a combiled ticket to my flight to India. Will it be possible to change in 1 hour.

     

    Yes, it is possible. All you have to do is take the SkyTrain from your arrival terminal to Terminal D and walk to your gate.

     

  • I have a connection in Atlanta arriving from Mexico and only 1 1/2 hrs

    I am arriving to Atlanta from Cancun to the International terminal and have 1 1/2 hours to go through migration and customs recheck baggage and go to my gate will it be enough, all the flights are with Delta

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. After you clear customs and re-check your bag there is a special security checkpoint just for people connecting off of international flights and that leads directly to the plane train which will take you to your departure concourse.

    I'm flying into Boston (Logan) and want to take the train to Portland, ME...which station should I use

     

    The Logan Express bus service runs between Boston Logan Airport and the Woburn-Anderson train station. Note however that the Woburn-Portland train only operates 4 or 5 times per day, including a gap of 6 hours between trains in the afternoon.

    I am arriving in rome on a Saturday at 22:30 pm. Need to get to rome to get train to naples. How long will it take to get through baggage claim and customs?

     

    I don't know if there will be any trains that late. You might have to spend the night in rome.

     

    Sorry typo. I get in just after noon.
