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.
I'm departing ANC on Alaska Air(terminal S) & which gate or terminal do I arrive at in SEA..I have to depart on Korean Air(to INC) but have no gate or terminal info. INC to MNL also How do I find it..sorry about this 1st time trying to go anywhere. Thanks
Alaska Airlines from Anchorage will arrive in C, D, or N. In Seoul you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
If I arrive from Panama (COPA) at 5.30pm and depart for Halifax, NS, Canada (Air Canada) at 7.15pm, will I have enough time to make the connection? I will have only carry-on baggage.
Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am flying DEN - DFW - MEX and back again later this month on AA. It looks like I need a concourse/terminal change and I have around 60 minutes for each connection.

Do I need to re-clear security each time, I've not been through DFW before, or made many transfers at US airports? Thanks.
No, when just changing terminals you do not have to go through security. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security. 60 minutes is NOT enough time on your way back from Mexico as you will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security in DFW.
Thanks - AA sold me the itinerary on their own website, so I assume they'll look after me.
Yes, just be prepared to possibly be stuck in DFW for awhile on you way back to Denver.
We land at 7:15AM (March 2017) in AMS from Washington DC on KLM, we are looking to book a flight at 8:25AM to Basel, is that enough time? Will we go thru customs and passport control in AMS? We may fly KLM or easy jet, KLM told us 2 different stories about if we need to pick up and re check our bags, some agents said no since they are both KLM flights and others told us yes because they are 2 different tickets/reservations, does anyone know?
Yes, you will go through Passport control in AMS. If you show your Basel confirmation on KLM to the KLM agent in Washington, they should be willing to check your bags through to Basel. In that case you won't have to claim them in AMS. If you fly Easyjet to Basel you will have to claim them in AMS.
Thank you ZAP. Will an hour be enough time to get thru passport control in AMS if KLM in Washington is willing to check our bags through to Basel?
Yes, that would be just enough time.
Thank you for your help!
Arriving via Lufthansa from Paris (CDG) and departing for US. Is 75 minutes enough time in Frankfurt airport? Thanks for help!
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi, are there any restrictions on your personal carry-on, you know the laptop bag, purse, backpack etc that you're allowed to bring along with your regular carry-on, in relation to the size and weight etc? Thanks
It needs to fit under the seat in front of you.
Thanks for the reply. Also are there any restrictions on the items that you can pack into the personal carry-on? In other words, if you have a large laptop bag, can you pack clothes and other things along with the laptop? I know this may sound as a rather stupid question but I like to play it safe.
