Arriving at 7:15 (LAN from Chile) and connecting with AA at 10:00 (domestic), non resident alien on tourist visa, - will I make it comfortably? different reservations and checked luggage.
Returning flight, domestic AA 8:52 PM arrival and Intl LAN 10:20 PM departure? Different reservations and checked luggage.
Thank you!
Your return flight will be pretty much impossible unless you don't check any bags.
We have connecting flight from Rio de Janeiro to Helsinki and stop at Jfk for 11 hrs. Is that ok, since we have Visa waiwer/Esta to go outside and see some NYC?
Yes, that is fin
Correction to time-of-day in previous post - it's 1:30 PM flight, although I expect to be on line much earlier.
The news reports about delays getting through security are frightening, especially since an airline isn't going to delay its flights. I'm leaving Sunday morning from Terminal B on a flight to Israel. Is there a website or telephone number to find out how long the wait time is at the security checkpoint(s)? How long a wait is "typical" for an international flight on a Sunday at that time?
My Flight is on Friday at 6am. What time does security open?
4-4:30 AM.
90 minute wait and counting at TSA Terminal 5. Stand still. Airlines keep cutting.
Do you mean the airlines are cutting people in line? Because unfortunately, airlines have no say in TSA staffing levels.
Hi, I will go to Switzerland with my son via Zurich airport the next week from Spain. We are spanish. Do we need carry oblilgatory the passport or is valid with our National ID card?
Thanks
You can travel between Schengen member states such as Switzerland with just your National ID card.
Flying through Miami from Italy on way to home in north Florida. Arrive Mia at 4:00 pm. Depart for Tallahassee, Florida at 9:30. Am I allowed to leave the airport and come back in time for my last leg to home in Tallahassee?
Yes, you can. After you clear customs and re-check your bags you will be outside security. Just keep in mind that it will be rush hour at that time so traffic outside the airport will be almost at gridlock.
How long are waits in TSA lines?
I am wondering if I can go thru security with just my ID if I am not getting on a flight? I am just going to surprise someone at their terminal when they exit their plane and I'm wondering if I can get thru security to do so.
No, you can't.
