  • Enough time for connection?
    Jul 22, 2014

    I am booking a flight from New Haven to Seattle - changing planes at PHL. Us Airways Express from New Haven to PHL arrives at 7:45 and PHL to Seattle leaves at 8:30. Is 45 minutes enough time? Are US Airways Express far from other US Air flights?

    I left my iPad mini in the seat back of 26 E on flight AA 1675 from Montego Bay to Dallas. The same plane was headed toward Boston (AA 1600) at 11:30 central time 7/21/2014. Please let me know if it shows up

     

  • Terminal 3 to TBIT

    Arriving US Air at LAX (I believe US Air is terminal 3) at 8:35 pm departing TBIT on Air Tahiti Nui at 11:10 pm. I will collect my bags at US Air baggage claim and proceed to check in at Air Tahiti. Is there a connecting tunnel or easy way to get from terminal 3 at LAX to the Intl Terminal?

  • Connecting from France T4 to Miami T8

    We arrive with XL Airways from France (T4), and have an American Airlines to Miami (T8). Is the Airtrain the quickest way ? Do we have to claim our bags and recheck them in T8 ? Where exactly ? How long will it take to do the whole connection ? THANKS

     

    The Airtrain is the only way between terminals. Yes, XL Airways France does not interline baggage with other airlines so you will have to bring it with you and pay a checked bag fee with AA in T8. I would leave at 3 hours for your connection.

    Hi, I will be coming to Seattle airport at 12:55 pm via Emirates from Dubai.I have connecting flight to Phoenix at 3:00 pm via Alaska Airlines. Whether the time is sufficient to make the connection? Thanks in advance.

     

    That should be enough time, even if your tickets were purchased separately and you have to re-check bags in the Main Terminal with Alaska.

     

    Thanks, I have booked a single ticket for my entire journey to Phoenix. I was wandering if I have to claim the baggage at Sea-Tac or it will be transferred by the airlines?

     

  • Customs & Connection time

    Hello, I will be arriving from Mexico at 1 PM Sat Aug 30 2014 to T2 thru Aeromexico and Plan to connect Southwest at T1. I have options for my connection at 3 & 4 pm. Would 2 hours be enough time to connect or should I choose my 3 hour connection option?

     

    I would choose the 3 hour since you will have to transfer the bags yourself and security lines at T1 can get pretty long.

    I'm flying with Delta/klm from Amsterdam to Seatac arriving at 16.02 (South?) and next flight whit Alaskan depart (from North?) at 17.40. It's enough? will i clear immigration, custom and re-check my baggage all in South terminal? Thanks

     

    If your bags are tagged through to OGG you will clear US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, and go through security all in the immigration hall of the S-Satellite. You will then be able to go directly to your departure gate in C, D, or N via the underground trains. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

    Thanks for your fast reply. i have a single book (only one PNR) with two different tickets, think my baggage are tagged directly to OGG... Is there a train that directly reach N from S? How many time it needs? thank again

     

    There's no direct train between N and S. Just check the monitors for your departure gate and follow the signs to that concourse.

     

  • Stoon to LAX with connection in Denver

    We are flying out of Saskatoon, SK to LAX. We have a 1 hr 10 min connection time in Denver. Will we have to clear customs in Denver and Will we have to collect checked bags and re-check them in Denver?

     

    I should have added, both flights are with United.

     

    Yes, you will have to clear US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, recheck your bags, and go through security. Luckily when the Saskatoon flights arrive in Denver immigration is unlikely to be crowded, but it still leaves little to no spare time to make your connection.

     

    That's what I was afraid of. Thanks for the information though. We will have to be as quick as we can. We have a party of 5 with one of those people being disabled. Seems like it may be tough.

     

    Well, it is technically an illegal connection and United does have lots of flights from DEN to LAX, so the airline should be obligated to rebook you onto a later LAX flight if you request it.

     

  • Connecting from Atlanta to Amsterdam

    We are on DL 1052 coming from Milwaukee to Atlanta at 5:01. We have a connecting flight from ATL (on DL 238) to Amsterdam at 5:42. Will we be able to make it or do we need more time between flights?

     

    It is doable as the Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. However it leaves very little room for any delays on your inbound flight. However, there are several later flights from Atlanta to Amsterdam that you can be reboked on if you miss your connection.

     

  • JFK - FCO - Venice. Claim baggage in Rome?
    Jul 21, 2014

    Flying American to Rome, connecting to Alitalia to Venice. Do I have to claim my bags and go through customs in Rome and then re-check? Or do the bags go through to Venice? We have 2.5 hrs in Rome.

     

    If your bags are only tagged through to Rome due to purchasing separate tickets, obviously you would have to claim them in Rome.

     

    I did not purchase the tickets separately, I purchased a flight to venice through American airlines. Obviously I know that if my bags are tagged to Rome then I would claim them in Rome. That is not the least bit helpful as an answer. What I need to know is WHETHER my bags will be tagged to Rome or Venice.

     

    In that case your bags should be tagged through to Venice and you will collect them when you get to Venice (in Europe you do not have to collect checked bags when entering a country if just connecting). You will just go through Passport Control as you travel from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1.

     

  • Valet check bag delay
    Jul 21, 2014

    Flew through ORD on AA yesterday, and valet checked bags took nearly 20 minutes to come up. It used to be 5 or 10 minutes max. Has it gotten that bad in ORD now, or was this the new norm with the RJ gates? The inbound flight was already delayed enough to miss the connection, but the loss of another 15 minutes should be reflected in the tickets AA sells through ORD.

    I am flying back from HKG to SEA on Delta, SEA to PHX on Alaska with 1 hr 54min connection time. Will I make my connection? Thank you in advance!!!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time to make your connection but leaves little time for any delays and depends on your bags being checked through to PHX in HKG so that you can re-check in the S-satellite without having to go to the main terminal to re-check your bag after clearing US customs.

     

  • Getting from one terminal to another United Express Airline

    I am flying in from MCI United Express, and heading out to Moncton, NB,guessing I will be leaving from a different terminal...does the airline have it's own shuttle bus??

     

    Actually both flights will likely be in Terminal A. However if you do have to go between A and C, then United operates a shuttle bus on the secure side of the airport.

     

    Really hoping that I don't have to leave Terminals, first time flying by myself and I am a so intimidated by this large airport....hoping that I can find my connecting flight without too much stress. Thanks for the reply. Any tips to make this easier I welcome!!!

     

  • Transfer LAX to San Jose, Mexico

    I am flying from Zürich via LAX to San José, Mexico, Will I have to clear customs and immigration in LA?

     

    Yes, you will. Any time you enter the US, even if you are connecting on elsewhere you have to go through US Immigration and Customs.

     

    Thanks Zap!
