  • How early should I be at DFW?
    Sep 14, 2016
    I will be flying back home to CLT, but I don't know how early I should be at the airport. This is at the End of December. I haven't booked yet. It may be a 7:00am flight with a stop through Nashville or a nonstop 1:30pm flight from DAL on SOuthwest. I need to know.


    If you're flying from DFW on American in the morning during holiday season an don't have Precheck I suggest arriving at least 2 hours before your flight, so that means if you're on a 7 AM flight, getting to the airport at about 5.


  • Need. Help. Where do I do customs? Flying CLT - MCO - LGW - NAP
    Sep 10, 2016
    I have to go through customs and stuff in NAP right? How long would that take at 6:20pm? I am also flying economy. I need to know so I can purchase the correct train ticket. Would I do Customs in LHR or NAP? I am flying from CLT-MCO-MCO -LGW-LGW-NAP. CLT - MCO is on a different ticket then MCO-NAP.. MCO - NAP IS ALL ON ONE TICKET.


    Yes, if MCO-LGW-NAP is all on the same reservation you should just have to go through Immigration and Customs in Naples.

  • 14 hour connection at Newark
    Aug 30, 2016
    Hi, I am looking to book a trip from the Uk to Las Vegas however the return flight includes a 14 hour connection at Newark, I was wondering would we be able to leave the airport during this time to explore the city and if so how realistic is 'popping' into New York and returning to the airport? Regards Laura Hunt


    Yes, you can leave the airport. It takes about 75 minutes to get from Newark to Manhattan on the train.

  • Free wifi at LHR - question
    Aug 22, 2016
    So 4 hours of free wifi is available. I have a six hour layover for a connecting flight. Can I use 4 hours on my iPad then another 2 hours on my iPhone? Seems to me I can, is this correct?


    Yes, probably. Depending on how they do the authorization you might have to enter two separate email addresses or something like that.

  • Flying from UK, 2hr 05min layover from T5 to T1
    Aug 10, 2016
    Hello, We are flying on Wednesday from the UK to Orlando. We fly Manchester - Brussels - Chicago - Orlando. We arrive at T5 at 11:55 and our next flight is from T1 at 14:00. Never having done this my question is this: Do we need to go through customs/immigration before moving between the two terminals? Is it do-able? It seems very tight on time to me. TIA, Victoria


    Yes, you will arrive in T5, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then Take the ATS train to Terminal 1, go through security and to your departure gate. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Connection Time

    Yes, the Skylink train connects all gates inside security.


  • Security screening again?
    Aug 4, 2016
    I fly in to houston from chicago at 9:04 AM (terminal C) and my connecting flight to costa rica (terminal E) is at 10:20 AM. Is this enough time? also do I have to go through security again to get to terminal E from terminal C?


    No you do not have to go through security again. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

  • Terminal 5 arrival when pre cleared us customs in calgary
    Aug 1, 2016
    I will be flying to Ord from Calgary Canada. I will pre-clear us customs and immigration in Calgary, but arrival gate is still in terminal 5. Will I have to go thru customs again?


    I'm guessing you're flying Westjet? Yes, they use Terminal 5 now. You won't have to go through Immigration or Customs in Chicago, they will let you out on the upper level and if you have checked bags you will claim them at the domestic baggage claim (Terminal 5 does have one - it is also used by the Etihad flight). Westjet moved to Terminal 5 this summer as they no longer fly to Chicago year-round.

    Jul 30, 2016
    Our luggage did not make it to destination on KLM flight OTP to IAH on 7/28 Since the airline is not useful, can you provide a phone nr for the KLM lost luggage desk on terminal D?


    This is not the airport's website. Nobody here has that information.
