  • Immigration

    If I go to MCO via JFK. Do I go through immigration in JFK or MCO ?


    If you are flying from outside the US, you will go through US Immigration and customs at your first point of entry, which in this case would be JFK, unless your origin has preclearance (some airports in Canada, Ireland, the Caribbean, and Abu Dhabi).


  • TSA security check line
    Jul 8, 2016
    What time does the Pre-approved TSA line open at Terminal 1, Southwest? I have a 5:30am flight on Sunday morning and qualify for the faster lane.


    The Precheck checkpoint in T1 opens at 4 AM.


  • connection time
    Jul 8, 2016
    Will be arriving at JFK from Paris in Oct 2016. Have 1hr 38 min. to make a connecting flight to Pittburgh. Is that enough time to clear customs, etc.?


    What airlines are you flying? Is everything on the same reservation? I don't have enough information to answer your question.

    Jul 4, 2016
    I'm Booking my flights on Alaska. Going Round trip from CLT-OMA-SEA & SEA-DEN-CLT. The First flight there is American & 1st flight back is on Alaska. Which airline do I check in with at both airports? Is an 1hr 25min enough time to change terminals at DEN? PLEASE RESPOND! THANKS!


    In Charlotte you check in with American and in Seattle you check in with Alaska. Denver only has one Terminal and bothh of your gates in Denver will be on Concourse A.

  • 1:30 min enough?
    Jun 28, 2016
    Arriving LAX 7pm from Cebu via PAL, 8:30 flight to salt lake via Southwest no lug except carry on, do I have enough time to catch 8:30 flight. Thanks


    It's possible, but it leaves no time to spare and PAL isn't exactly punctual. I would try for a later flight.

    How much time do I need to get through security. I have a 10 a.m. flight

  • terminal 1 transferring to terminal 3
    Jun 27, 2016
    I am flying for Toronto Canada to terminal 1 and transfer to terminal 3 for international flight to China. I have 45 minutes for the connection. Is this enough time and how long does it take.


    IAD only has one terminal so your question us confusing. What airlines are you flying?


    Sorry I am flying out of terminal 1 in TO with United airlines to catch my flight at terminal 3 flying with UA. I have 45 mins to catch my flight. Is this enough time and with my companion using a cane?


    As I said - IAD only has one terminal. I don't know where you're getting "terminal 1 and terminal 3" as they don't exist. If both flights are on United they will likely both be on the C/D concourse. All you have to do in IAD is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.


  • time to clear customs?
    Jun 22, 2016
    I have a 2hour window to come in from an international flight, get bags, go through customs/immigration, recheck bags, and get on my next plane. Is that enough time?


    Where are you flying into Denver from? What airlines are you flying?


    Flying in from London on British Airways, flying out on Alaska to Seattle.


    If both tickets are on the same reservation that should be enough time.


    They are not on the same reservation. I actually haven't reserved the flight out of Denver yet but I'm trying to avoid a 5 hour layover which is the next option.


    In that case 2 hours is less than I'd want since you will have to go all the way out to the departure level to re-check your bags and then go through security.


  • 2hrs and 30 mins enough?
    Jun 20, 2016
    Hi, I land in Frankfurt at 11:20 with flight SK 4755 in terminal 1. My next flight (CA 966) has a departure set for 13:55, also in terminal 1. Since the flight agencies are different, do I have to check in my luggage again before I leave? And do I have to go through EU control once I land? I'm worried there won't be enough time. Thank You.


  • Layover in Charlotte from MKE to SRQ
    Jun 17, 2016
    I have a 30 minute layover from Air Wisconsin to PSA Airlines. Is that enough time to make it to the next gate?


    Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Milwaukee is on-time.

    I brought lots of souvenirs from this place and once I got home I noticed that the guy didn't put 4 pens that I had purchased in bag. So I guess I'm out of luck now because I'm back in California and the number on the receipt is out of service.


  • Check in
    Jun 9, 2016
    one more question for the pdx to lax to tb...the day before if we check into af online and print boarding pass and go thru terminals to we have to check in with air france at all? or is it best to do it anyways and check in again at desk?


    If when you check in for your flight from Portland it issues your Air France boarding pass then you don't have to check in with Air France at all.


  • does United &southwest have the same baggage claim area
    Jun 9, 2016
    Can anyone please tell me if United & Southwest share the same baggage claim area or are the separate


    No, they are not in the same building. The Southwest baggage claim is in Terminal 1 and the United baggage claim is in Terminal 3.
