  • Connecting from Virgin Atl flight from LHR to Delta flight to Buffalo
    Mar 2, 2015
    1
    On July 15th we will arrive around 2:30 at JFK on a Virgin Atlantic flight from LHR. At 4:20 we would need to catch a Delta flight to Buffalo, NY. Is this enough time to clear customs and change terminals?

     

    It is possible if you don't have any baggage to claim and recheck. If youbdo then you will be cutting it VERY close and will need to rush at every step to make it in time.

    Hello, I'll be arriving from San Jose (SJO) with Aeromexico at 18:40 and than depart at 20:10 to FRAnkfurt with Lufthansa. Seems that I'll need to change terminals too. Am I right that I'll need to clear customs and immigration too? Any chance to get on my final flight to FRA, what do u think? :-)

    About how long does it take to get from the So. Terminal to the No. Terminal via underground tram?

     

    S and N aren't technically separate terminals, they're concourses. it takes about 15 minutes to get between them, assuming the first flight is domestic or pre-cleared.

    Is an hour enough time to connect from a Delta flight to Alaska Air?

     

    If the Delta flight is domestic and both tickets were purchased together, it is.

    Flying Delta. 1hr 45 min layover at JFK from San Juan PR to Montreal (early evening). Should be sufficient however should we expect any issues re luggage etc? Do not know terminal or gates yet. Thanks

     

    Both flights will likely be in Terminal 4, but all Delta gates at JFK are connected inside security. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    Flying Delta. Connecting in Atlanta from Montreal to San Juan PR. 2 hr mid afternoon layover which should be sufficient however should we expect any issues with luggage etc? Do not know terminals or gates yet. Thanks

     

    All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal. You don't have to do anything with baggage.

    I am flying from LEX on DL 1093 (arrive at ATL at 9am) and connecting in ATL onto DL 509 (depart at 9:45) to Turks and Caicos. Do I have enough time to make my connection?

     

    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that should be enough time. You just have to take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E/F where you will depart

    I am a non-US citizen flying from Narita to Seattle with a landing time at 9.31 am and connecting to JFK with the departing time at 11.15 am. I am flying Delta on both flights. Do I have enough time to clear immigration and customs checks? Thanks.

     

    That should be enough time.

    I'l be arriving on Air NZ at 3pm,Mar 24. I have a West Jet (op American) flight to Edmonton from T4 at 17:05--Canadian Passport, no checked baggage. West Jet think this will work. Do you agree?

     

    Since you have no checked bags I think it will be possible.

     

  • what happens if missed connection

    my connection is 35 min. i know it's very tight and no room for delays. i'm praying it arrives on time and i run but what if my first delta flight is delayed. will delta ensure i am placed on a later flight?

     

    You will be placed on the next available flight. However, due to schedules the next available flight may either require an overnight stay in Detroit or an additional connection.

     

    thanks! how much time does it take to get from terminal C to terminal A. Hypothetically Gate C27 to Gate A60

    I am flying in to terminal 8 and connections is TOM BRADLEY terminal. I have an hour, no bags. Is shuttle best or walk/run?

     

    It will be very difficult. If you can walk fast or run, do that.

     

    Thanks for the response. My flight was 25 minutes late so I ran like hell and got a air new zealand rep to wiz me thru security. Last one on but made it. Never doin that again.

     

  • Connection on Alitalia separate booking
    Mar 1, 2015

    Hi, I will be arriving in Rome from the US at 8:10AM. I need to make a separate one way booking to Athens on Alitalia. I would like to get to Athens as early as possible; what is the safest bet on time I will need to collect luggage, passport control, and re-check luggage with Alitalia?

     

    At least 2 hours, preferably a little more than that. Italians aren't exactly known for their punctuality.

     

  • flying from Vcr to Kahului via San Fransisco

    Hi - 3 of us are flying with United from Vancouver, B.C. to Kahului March 14. We land in SFO at 3:15 p.m. have a 1 hour stopover and leave for Kahului at 4:15. Do you know where we go through Customs? Vancouver or SFO? Will we land at the International terminal at SFO or different terminal 3? Is one hour enough time to get to the United flight that leaves for Kahului at 4:15? Would the 4:15 flight be domestic therefore leaving from terminal 3? thanks

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in SFO is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All United gates in SFO are connected inside security (both T3 and the G concourse of the Intl Terminal) You should have enough time.

     

    Thanks so much for the information.

    We are UK citizens and will be flying into Miami from Cancun and flying onto Barbados. How long would you recommend it takes to clear immigration, reclaim baggage etc.

     

    In Miami, I would recommend at least 2 hours.
