  • IAD International connections
    Nov 17, 2015
    I am flying into IAD from Raleigh on United and flying to Ireland on AerLingus with about a 75 minute layover. The ticket is booked as one ticket. Is that enough time to connect to the international flight? Flight arrives in IAD around 4pm and AerLingus flight departs around 5:20pm. Starting to worry we will miss connection. How difficult is it to transfer between terminals?


    IAD only has one terminal. You just have to change concourses. You have plenty of time. The concourses are connected by the Mobile Lounges and AeroTrain.


  • do i need airport transit visa
    Oct 27, 2015
    i'll be flying from new delhi(del) to prague(prg) .my flight is a connecting one and it has a layover in amsterdam for 12 hours. will i need airport transit visa and can i leave airport premises of amsterdam?


    You will need a Schengen tourist visa (or whatever appropriate visa you need for your visit to Prague), since Prague and Amsterdam are both in the Schengen area, you will go through Schengen passport control in Amsterdam.


  • Enough time to catch my next flight?
    Oct 25, 2015
    Hi, my husband and I will arrive to DFW from LGA at 3:57 pm and need to take our next flight at 5:05 pm to Costa Rica with AA on Nov 4th. Is this enough time?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Terminal D.


  • Transit
    Oct 18, 2015

    You will need to complete ESTA online prior to your trip.


  • Dubai-Seattle-Victoria...enough time
    Jan 11, 2015
    I am flying from Dubai to Seattle on a 14 hour Emirates flight. The flight arrives in satellite S. My next flight is to Victoria, Canada from terminal C. The layover time is 1h 25 minutes. I have 2 questions: 1) Would I have to go through any customs? or immigration at Seattle airport? I am only going to be in transit. 2) Is 1 hour 25 minutes layover enough to catch the Victoria, Canada connection? I do have another option where Victoria connection is 6 hours 40 minutes later. I could take that one. I am also traveling with a 4 year old so I will have a stroller. Is it true that to go to S to C, I have to take the train 4 times? Your thoughts? Thanks


  • Reykjavik Airport - Transit Visa?
    Jan 4, 2015
    I want to board a flight via Icelandair through Reykjavik to Canada as a new immigrant. I have the immigrant visa but not yet the permanent resident card, only the COPR (Confirmation of Permanent Residence). Can I transit in Iceland without a Schengen transit visa?


  • Kelonwa BC to seattle
    Jan 4, 2015
    I am planning to fly from Dublin to Seattle and can use the pre-clearance system, then after a cycling holiday in Usa, I want to visit a friend by flying Seattle to Kelowna in BC, Canada. It seems more efficient to return to Seattle to return to Dublin. As an Irish citizen, I will have to re-enter USA. So, how complicated will it be to re-enter?


    Not complicated at all. Irish citizens just have to complete ESTA before their trip. Their second entry is actually easier as all their information will already be in the system.


  • Lost prescription reading glasses
    Jan 2, 2015
    Purple front with brown/tortoise shell ear pieces, prescription lenses on B concourse or C concourse on Jan. 28, 2014. Flying on Delta.


    So you lost it nearly a year ago? Yeah, I don't think you're getting it back.


  • MIA terminal B to Terminal D
    Dec 29, 2015
    Is 45 minutes enough time to go from Terminal B (BOS-MIA) to Terminal D (MIA - BERMUDA)? c


    I'm confused. You post asking about MIA but this post is in the forum for the Philadelphia airport. Which are you posting about?


  • Luggage
    Dec 6, 2014
    If I am at the airport in the morning and my flight doesn't leave until 7:20 pm is there a place I can check my luggage so I don't have to sit at the airport all day?


    There are no baggage storage facilities. However, depending on your airline you may be able to check your baggage in the morning if their counter is open. What airline are you flying?




    Frontier has a 6 AM flight and doesn't have another until a little after noon, so their check-in counter may be closed from 6 AM until about 10 or 10:30.


  • International flights in and out, need to clear immigraton?
    Nov 8, 2014
    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.


  • Connection time
    Nov 4, 2014
    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.


  • Connection Time
    Oct 31, 2014
    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?
    Oct 16, 2014
    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.


  • termianl change
    Oct 13, 2014
    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.
