    How many minutes/hours in JetBlue DCA security line?

     

    Very short - DC area airports are always well staffed by the TSA and the terminal JetBlue uses isn't very busy.

    Hi There, I have a 2 hour 30 min layover in Dallas, however I need to change airlines. I arrive on United and depart with Delta. I have noticed both airlines are in the same terminal. Am I correct in thinking I have enough time to collect bags, re-check and go through the TSA screening? Thanks

     

    Yes, if the first flight is on-time that should be enough time.

    I've heard such varying statements regarding increased wait times. I'm flying from SFO --> LAS on 6/16 at 7:30 PM. I obviously don't want to miss my flight but I don't want to take unnecessary time off work as I've recently started a new job. What time would you recommend arriving at SFO? Thanks!

     

    Arriving at SFO at 6 PM would probably be sufficient.

     

    Check the current TSA wait time for your terminal at SFO. Simply enter a search for, "SFO TSA wait time Terminal ---" also take into consideration if you are checking in luggage . Give yourself time by checking ahead with your airline advisements as well. Add up the wait times and there you go. Good luck

     

    Thanks for your reply. I do know about the wait time updates. However, "30+ mins" is extremely vague and defeats the purpose of having the updates. Of course I'm going to allow a time cushion, I just want to know if I need to allow a ridiculous cushion of 3 hours.

    How early should I arrive at the Freeport, Grand Bahama airport for my flight back home to Miami

     

    At least 2 hours early because you will have to pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Freeport.

    With a small group flying on Emirates out of SFO International terminal on Friday6/3.Emirates site states 2 hr wait time at security at USA airports but it looks like security wait times at SFO are not more tham 30 minutes. Is this the case?

     

    You should still get there 2 hours early to check your bags and do international document processing.

    On my flight, where will I go thru customs on the way to GLA and on the return flight to DFW?

     

    In Toronto you will go through Canadian passport control and in Glasgow you will go trough UK Passport control and Customs.
