Great site for first timers like me. My Fiji Airways flight arrives in LA from Fiji at 1:20 p.m and my connecting United Airlines flight to Newark at 4:20 p.m the same day. They both on separate tickets. Will I have enough time please?
Yes, that should be enough time. Remember to take your bags with you to Terminal 7 to re-check, don't try to re-check at the re-check desk in the International Terminal, you won't be able to.
Traveling from Buenos Aires to LA with a layover in ATL on April the 3rd and just under 2 hours between flights after arriving at 6AM, I'm aware that I have to go through Customs and Immigration and wait times can be a pain. Should I be worried about missing my next flight while waiting for immigration processing?
You should have enough time. Especially with the early morning arrival. If you do miss your connection, Delta flies lots of flights from Atlanta to LA.
Thank you for the answer, that's a relief. I'm now trying to determine if 1 hour is enough for my flight back from LA through ATL. No need to fill paperwork or wait in lines but I do have to do some moving across the airport using the tram and it sounds a little tight considering the size of the place.
How can I find out what gate my flights will be arriving to and departing from? Do I have to wait until I actually check in to find that out? I'm not flying until June but would like to know how far the gates are from each other at each stop.
I have 1.5 hrs layover in SEA from Hongkong before heading off to Edmonton, Canada. Is this enough time? I understand that I have to pass immigration and customs before go to domestic flight terminal. Thank you.
Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. You barely have enough time if everything goes perfectly and all flights are on the same reservation.
