    I appreciate your listing of wait times...but I'm COLORBLIND and your color key is not helpful to me. Please RETHINK a color - keyed table. Approximately 7% of all men have a color perception problem like mine and approximately 2-3% of women!

     

  • 43 minute connection time

    Hi, Flying into Houston Terminal B from Memphis with a 43 min connection time (assuming no delays) and flying out to Las Vegas from Terminal C. I don't have to collect baggage but is this enough time and do I have to go thro' security.

     

    The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security. That is enough time. Obviously it doesn't leave much time to spare if your first flight is delayed.

     

    Thanks ZAP...was a bit concerned as never been thro' Houston before Cheers

     

  • Time to get through security

    I am trying to book a flight, but the one I am looking at drops me at DTW at 9:15. I am flying there to pick up a dog from a breeder. If the flight back to Boston leaves at 9:54 (same airline, JetBlue), would I have enough time to go back through security with the pup and make it to my flight? Thanks!

     

    It would be pretty difficult. While security delays at DTW aren't as bad as some other airports. Essentially leaving you only 30 minutes to get through security and to your gate isn't something I would try.

     

    That's what I kind of figured. Thank you for your response!

    Hi, I am American traveling from Dublin to San Francisco, with an 8hour layover in Frankfurt. my question is do I have to go through customs if I want to explore Frankfurt for a few hours? thanks!

     

    Yes, you will have to go through Schengen Passport control to leave the airport and then Schengen Exit passport control when you return to the airport. There's not much to see in Frankfurt - just hang out at the airport.

    flying from Montreal to Cedar Rapids...what is the required connection time in Chicago? Air Canada is showing 48 minutes...is that a legal connection?

     

    Yes, that is a legal connection. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Chicago is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Both will likely be in Terminal 2.

    US Citizen traveling from Guatemala to Las Vegas on Aeromexico, anything special I need to do? First time to Las Vegas Customs and Immigration did not know they had them.

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 3, go through US Immigration, claim your luggage, and go through US Customs. It is more or less the same as entering the US at any other airport.

    THE WAIT IS OVER AN HOUR ON AVERAGE AND IF YOU TELL THEM YOUF FLGITH IS LEAVING IN 15 MINUTES THEY DONT CARE AND DONT HELP YOU.

     

    JFK has over a dozen security lines. Which one in particular are you referring to and at what time of day?

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

    Hi I am traveling from Montreal to Phoenix with a stop in Atlanta, does I have to go through inmigration there? I am mexican. Thanks!!!

     

    You will preclear US immigration and customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

    buy before trip with mailing application and passport to DC Tanzania embassy or buy upon arrival in JRO?

     

    I doubt anyone here has any personal experience with the Tanzanian Embassy in Johannesburg. Note that if you're a US Citizen you can get a Visa on Arrival in Tanzania.
