  • Flying to London mid-June
    May 24, 2016
    Hi, we are driving from DC to Philly to catch a 630pm flight to London in mid-June. We were originally planning on leaving DC about 12pm, but with all the news coverage on security lines, should we allow a lot more time for the security line? We are starting to get very nervous about the lines! Is Philly experiencing the same issues as whats being told on the news?


    Lines at PHL are being impacted but are not among the worst in the country. If you arrive 2-2.5 hours before your flight you should be fine.

    You should be OK getting there at like 11:30-12. Mid-Day is the least busiest time of day at LaGuardia.


  • Getting through security from a domestic to an international flight
    May 21, 2016
    We are flying into O'Hare on United from Fort Wayne, IN at 6:22 pm on a Monday. It looks as if we need to go from Terminal 2 to Terminal 5. Will we need to go through security again? If so, will an hr + 54 minutes be enough?


    Where are you flying to out of O'hare? That should be enough time.

    I'm traveling from MCO TO JFK. I'm asking, what time should I get there? On the news, I heard that MCO airport is one of the worst as it has super long lines. My flight departure is 12;15. I was thinking maby getting there by 9:00 but I'm not so sure I'll be enough time. Suggestions?


    Also, I'm going to have checked luggage.


    I fly out of MCO all the time. Although there are time when the lines do seem excessively long, their security check points flow well. If you plan to be at the gate for boarding 40 minutes prior to departure then you need to be in the parking garage or dropped off at the curb 1.5-2hours prior to flight departure. That leaves plenty of time to get through security and have a leisurely stroll even to the furthest gate with a "pit stop" and a snack along the way. (Assuming you already have your boarding pass. Baggage check is subject to specific airline services. I never check bags so I can't speak to that process.


    I don't have my boarding pass yet. Should I leave earlier? If so does any of the terminals close and open and what time

    by the way I am flying out of ATL where they are saying arrive 3 hrs before your flight for domestic flights.


    Yes, passengers who already have their boarding passes can use the international terminal checkpoint at ATL, even if they are traveling on a domestic flight.


  • Security wait time for International flight

    We will be flying out from IAD to Grand Cayman Island this coming Saturday (May 21st) and we just wonder what is the wait time for the security line for the International flight? Thanks


    Security lines at IAD haven't been as bad as other airports. You should be fine arriving 2 hours before your flight.
