  • Connecting flights and baggage

    If you only have 1:40 hr for a conecting flight, will the immigration process through San Fran and checking back in need that much time? Also will my bags make it into that flight too?

     

    Where are you flying from and to and on what airline?

    I am flying from Canada to home, with a two hour layover in Dallas. Is that enough time to clear customs and make my flight?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Canada. All you have to do in Dallas is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    What are the best days to fly to and from Belize?

     

    Many airlines only fly there on Saturday and Sunday so there will be more flight options those days, however, the airport in Belize will be busier.

     

  • Enough Time...?

    Am planning to fly out of ORD on a Friday evening to Shannon, Ireland. 2 travelers at least 1 checked bag between the two of us. Was wondering if arriving around 1430 is enough time for a 1610 flight or would we be cutting it way too short? Thank you!

     

    If it's the summer then I would really try to be there closer to 1410, but the International terminal isn't THAT busy in the mid afternoon, compared to late afternoon/early evening.

     

  • 35 Minute connecting flight from Denver to Hayden

    I have only a 35 minute connection in between when my flight lands is Denver to make my flight to Hayden. Both are United Airlines. Is this doable?

     

    It's possible, but leaves no time to spare if the first flight is delayed.

     

  • pre-purchase seats

    My seat will be assigned when I get to the airport unless I am willing to pay extra for a seat. Is it better to pay extra for a seat to guarantee that I will get one even thought I've already paid $400 for a ticket? Will it guarantee that when I change planes that that plane will wait for me if the first plane is running late?

     

    Nothing can guarantee that a plane will wait for you (it probably won't). Whether or not you feel that paying for an assigned seat or not is worth it to you is your decision.

    I am US citizen flying from LAX to Cabo. Do I need to get to airport two hours early? Or is it same security line as domestic where 1hr will do? Wasn't sure if the Trump stuff effects security lines now or not?

     

    It's the same security line. Security lines have not changed at all recently. Note however that your airline may have earlier bag check cutoffs for international flights if you are checking a bag.

    If I arrive on Air Canada from Whitehorse and leave on Air Canada from Vancouver to Europe is 1h enough to change flights? Thank you

     

    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Our flight from Honolulu on Hawaiian Air (booked on Air Canada Web) arrive Vancouver at 7:10am....I have a connecting flight (Air Canada)to Calgary at 8:30am. Will this give me enough time to get through customs/immigration and get to my flight?

     

    Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • 30 min to make connection flight to Vancouver

    This Saturday, I'm scheduled to fly from Toronto to Calgary, then Calgary to Kelowna, then finally Kelowna to Vancouver. I booked through a third party agency and I didn't realize I would only get a 30 min layover in Kelowna to make it to my final flight to Vancouver. I'm worried, is this enough time for me and my checked baggage to make it to the next flight? I'd appreciate any input / advice.

     

    Is it two separate reservations or one reservation?

     

    It's under one reservation :/

     

    Then 30 minutes in Kelowna should be enough time. it's a small airport.

     

  • Flying fro Phila. to Cancun

    why is a non stop flight from Philadelphia to Cancun 3 hrs long but is 41/2hrs long on return flight

     

    All of the Philadelphia to Cancun flights I see are 4 hours long.

     

    It's the difference in central time versus earn time zones. The airline shows the actual time you land where you're going, so if you left from Philly at 9am est and arrived at cancun 12pm cst toy really flew 4 hours but the airline shows 3. From louisville to Chicago is - 15 minutes.

    As the title says I'm flying Atlanta to Florence, Italy with a layover in Paris CDG. Am I correct that I will clear EU passport control at CDG but will not have to clear at FLR? I'm trying to time the train reservations for the next leg of my trip and need to know how much time to allow at FLR. THank you

     

    You are correct.

    2 of us adults are booked to fly in to JFK from CLT in July, landing in T8 at 4:18pm (Thurs.) and then catch a plane from T4 to MAN (UK) at 7:30pm. Have we enough time as these flights were booked separately and if the first flight is delayed and we miss the 2nd flight what happens? Will we be put on the next available flight to MAN as they are separate flights booked separately? Thanks

     

    yes, that should been enough time. If you miss your connection you will probably have to pay a change fee.
