  • 1h45 international connection

    Hi, I'm looking to book a flight from London to ATL to a US Delta connection. I have 1h45mins from arrival, thru immigration, customs, re-check bags and get to the new gate. Is that possible? It is a combined ticket Virgin/Delta if that makes any difference. All with a toddler.

     

  • Southwest 40 minute connection

    Flying Southwest through DEN on a Wednesday afternoon with a 40 minute connection. I've not flown through DEN before - are all of the Southwest gates located in the same terminal? Inbound flight is from Burbank/BUR so I'm hoping for less chance of a late arrival. I can run between gates for sure, just trying to scope out in advance how much time I might have. Thanks.

    We are flying from Chicago to LAX (using Spirit) And then are thinking of a flight from LAX to Cabo 45 minutes later (using Alaskan Airlines) Can we make it from terminal 3 (where Spirit is) to terminal 6 (where Alaskan Air is) in LAX in 45 minutes? Do we have to go through security again? To complicate matters my wife will be gate checking her wheelchair... Is this even possible?

     

    No, that's not a possible connection you should not have booked this.

     

    And let me explain why - assuming your spirit flight is on-time, you will have to spend at least 5-10 minutes waiting for the wheelchair, then it is approximately 15-20 minute walk from T3 to T6, by a fast walker. With a wheelchair I imagine it will be much slower. Then you will have to go through security in T6, then get to the gate. There is no way you can make it.

     

  • 42 mins to go from terminal 2-3 to 5?? Help!

    I have 42 minutes to get to an Ord-Frankfurt flight, presumably in terminal 5, after my flight lands in either 2 or 3 from Denver. Am I totally screwed?

     

    No ORD-Frankfurt flights depart from T5. United and Lufthansa flights to Frankfurt depart from T1. Also, no airline uses both T2 and T3. What airline are you flying from Denver?

     

    Oh, phew. Thank you. I just assumed a flight to Frankffurt would leave from T5. I am slated to arrive at ORD at 2:38. Flight to Frankfurt is at 3:20. Oct. 25 is the day. United the carrier from Denver.

     

  • 1hour and 30min layover time

    Hi - I am flying from Hong Kong - Las Vegas. I am wondering if 1hour and 30min is enough time taking the whole recheck-in in consideration? FYI it is UNITED both ways. On the way to Vegas I'll be in SFO from 8.30am-10am and return flight from 11.55am-13.25pm. Will I have enough time? Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. On your way to Las Vegas, in SFO you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags with United, then go through security and to your departure gate. On you way back to Hong Kong, all you have to do in SFO is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is a walkway connecting Terminal 3 where you will likely arrive and the G concourse of the International Terminal where you will depart.

     

    Thank you so much, this is super helpful. Have a great day!

     

  • Connection from Atlanta to Chicago

    Hi! I will be flying out of Mobile,AL and landing in Atlanta,GA with a 45 minute layover until my next flight to Chicago. Do you think that will be enough time to catch my flight and will they make my connection flight in the same concourse as my flight that lands from Mobile?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Your flights will likely be on different concourses but there is a chance they will be on the same concourse. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

    HI, I am flying from YUL to CLT thru IAD... and i only have a 46 min connection... will I make it? what is the process?

     

    All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you arrive in concourse A and depart from Concourse C or D, A is connected to C and D by the mobile lounge and aerotrain. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal.

     

    Thank you! how long before our flight in YUL.. do you recommend to get to airport.. since we clear immigration & customs in canada

     

    Probably 90 minutes

    Do they arrive & depart from the same terminal?

     

    Yes, all Domestic American flights arrive in T3 and all American Eagle flights depart from T3.

    I have 30 minutes at Ohare to make a connection from American to American Eagle airlines. Is this even possible?

     

    Yes, it is possible. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Terminal 3.

     

    thank you

    Flying from Rome to US with 90 min layover at AMSTERDAM. What is the process for baggage, passport etc... Thanks!

     

    All you have to do in Amsterdam is go through schengen exit passport control and then go through security at your departure gate. You don't have to do anything with your baggage.

    Hi there, Coming in on a flight from MSP next month and into Terminal 1. My flight to PSP leaves from the International Terminal. I only have an hour in between. Flights all booked via Alaska Air, but MSP to SFO flight is on Delta, and SFO to PSP flight is Alaska Air. Fastest way from T1 to TI...walk or train? And, do I have to go thru Security again ? Thanks very much.

     

    It's probably slightly faster to take the train. Yes, you will have to go through security again in the International Terminal.

     

    Thanks for your response!

     

  • International flight to domestic flight - 1 h 39 min layover

    Hello, My KLM flight from Amsterdam will arrive at ATL at terminal F on a Friday evening at 8:20 pm. I need to get my connecting flight at 11:59 pm to Miami from terminal B operarting by Delta. I have 1 h 39 min layover time and I have NO checked luggage. How much time will I need to get from terminal F to terminal B and what is the best and fastest way to get from terminal F to terminal B. Since this is the last connection flight to Miami that day, I really do not want to miss it. Thanks for your help!

     

    B is a concourse, not a terminal. After you go through US Immigration you will then go through US Customs, then follow the signs for connecting passengers, you will go through security, then take the Plane Train to your departure concourse (check monitors for your departure concourse, it can change). Immigration lines should be short that late in the evening and getting to your departure concourse should take less than 10 minutes.

     

    Sorry, the flight to Miami is leaving at 9:59 pm instead of 11:59 pm from Atlanta. Is there still enough time to get that flight? 1 h 39 min layover time. Thanks!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

    American & US Airways passengers may use the shuttle stopping at T3's gate 39 & at T4's gate 44.

    Will be flying into JFK on 02 Jan from Brussels. Have 97 minutes to make a connecting flight to Tampa. All flights are Delta. Is this enough time or will I be pushing it. My only other option is a 5+ hour layover at JFK before the next flight to Tampa. Would prefer not to do that. Thanks.

     

    1. Upon arrival at JFK at Terminal 4 (T4), you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag. 2. Your connecting Delta flight will be Terminal 2 - Delta's domestic terminal - tel. 800-221-1212 (Delta International - tel. 800-241-4141). 3. While Delta shuttles run between gate C60 at T2 & gate B23 at T4 (a 2 min transfer time) - this may only apply to domestic arrivals - do check with Delta). If Delta shuttle does not apply, you would need to take the 'Airline Terminal Train' (follow signs) running continuously between terminals, to the next stop, which is T2 - but would need to go through security check there before proceeding to your gate. (By mid-2015 there will be a connector between the two terminals.) Either way, you should be able to make your transfer in time.
