  • Do the trains run on time? Ground Transport from Waverly to EDI.
    May 26, 2016
    0
    Hi, I'm wondering if it's reasonable to catch a train from Lancaster to Waverly Train Station (7:15-9:43) and then catch a 12:30 international flight out of EDI? Allowing for the fact that we'll have two kids under 5 with us and need to check bags. We're open to taking a taxi between the train station and airport but want to be sure we don't miss our flight.

    I will fly from Terminal 4 (KLM flight at 10:40 p.m.) on Sunday 5/29. How much time do you recommend I allot for check in and screening that day?

     

    Arrive at the airport 3 hours before your flight if possible, so about 7:40.

    i am flying into EWR terminal B from manchester england(MAN), and need to be over to terminal C to get my next flight for Fort Lauderdale(FLL). i am a british citizen. i know i need to clear immigration, but unsure of the steps to take after that. do i collect luggage? where do i put it? how to i get it transferred over to the next flight(terminal C)? how do i get over to terminal C? do i have to go through security again(where they check your hand luggage)? how far away are the gates? i have 2 hours 20 mins from landing, to my next flight taking off. on the way home, i am travelling from orlando airport(MCO) into terminal C, and have exactly an hour to get across to terminal B to make my flight back home to manchester england (MAN). how do i do that? what are the steps i need to take to make my flight home? i am worried sick we wont make it, or that our luggage makes it. all help greatly appreciated. never flown indirect to florida before, always done direct. thanks x

     

    i should add that both flights are with UNITED, both ways. thanks x

     

    You will claim your bags, go through US Customs, then immediately re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security. On the way back to Manchester both flights will be in Terminal C. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I am flying from the UK to Florida, connecting in JFK, could you please tell me the process when I arrive in JFK, both flights are with American Airlines on one ticket, will I have to collect luggage and recheck it in? Also how long does the process normally take on average. Thank you.

     

    You will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. 2 hours is a reasonable time to allow for this process.

    Flying into Atlanta today from Costa Rica then onto canada. was told to go through immigration but then TSA security again. i only have one hour. do we go to same TSA as others where currently there is 3-4 hours wait? will miss my connection. or is it another security line only for connections?

     

    There is a separate security line for international connections, but that is still a very difficult connection

    Flying into Charlotte in 9/13 at 6:10pm. Scheduled to depart at 7:50 American Airlines. Will that be enough time to clear immigration and go back through security? No checked bags, carry on.

     

    Where are you flying into Charlotte from? Where are you flying to?

     

    Flying in from Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Will depart Charlotte to Chicago, O'Hare.

    Hi I am flying from Dubai Lebanese national reaching on 3rd Nov at 14.25. Can you advise if possible to catch the 16:45 flight to Miami from terminal 2. thanks

     

    On two separate itineraries and the fact that you'll be entering on a visa, I'd really recommend more connection time.

    WILL A NEPALI CITIZEN NEED AN AIRPORT TRASIT VISA IF HE HOLDS A VALID TOURIST USA VISA AND HAS A LAYOVER OF 6HOURS AT THE FRANKFURT AIRPORT.HE WILL BE TRAVELLING FROM INDIA.

     

    If you have a valid US Visa then you don't need a Schengen Airport Transit Visa.

     

    THANKS FOR YOUR REPLY.AND HOW ABOUT A THAI CITIZEN WITH A VALID US VISA.WILL HE NEED A TRANSIT VISA AT FRANKFURT?

     

    Thai citizens can transit the Schengen Area without a visa even if they don't have a US visa.

     

    Thanks a ton. its really a relief to get your reply.I was very tensed.Thanks a lot.

    My son is going from Cancun to Denver with a plane change in DFW. Where will he go through Immigration?

     

    In DFW he will go through US Immigration, claim his bags, go through US Customs, re-check his bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to his departure gate.

    I have a UNITED Flight Departing from Hong Kong to Costa Rica with 1:50 layover in Chicago and 2:23 layover in Houston. I am worried I wont have enough time in Chicago (arriving Friday around 3pm)....Do I need to do Immigration, pick up bags and customs in Chicago or bags are already checked all the way through to Costa Rica? Thanks

     

    Your bags will be tagged to SJO, but in Chicago you will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the ATS Train to Terminal 1 and go through security. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • Terminal 1 to Terminal 3

    My daughter is flying into LAS on Southwest, T1. I am flying on Hawaiian into T3. We are to meet at T3 Parking Garage, Valet Level V to get an Uber. We only have carry on bags. What would be the easiest way to get to T3 Valet Level?

     

    She should take the shuttle bus from T1 to T3 after she arrives.
