  • is this connection time feasible

    My TA has booked us arriving Alitalia (which seems to be T1) on a Tuesday at 3:20 and departing Delta (seems to be T4) at 5:30. We are US citizens with checked luggage. Is this at all feasible to make?

     

  • Time to clear customs on December 2

    Hello! I am arriving on a flight from Madrid at 1:30 p.m. on December 2 and need to get to Penn Station to catch a train. How much time should I allow to get through customs?

     

    I would estimate 45-55 minutes, then it will take you about an 80 minutes to get to Penn Station.

     

    You are awesome! Thank you very much!!!

    Arriving on AA into T8 at 13:35 from LHR connecting to AA to RDU 14:55 is this enough time to clear immigration and re-check?

     

    That is about 10 minutes below the minimum connection time. You have a good chance to make it, but there's little to no room for any delays or backups at immigration.

     

  • Luggage not transferred

    Arrived on Austrian flight from Vienna and connected to LIT on United Airlines. I knew the bags were not checked through to little rock because the tags did not have LIT on them. A man with a handheld scanner instructed me to put them on the conveyor along the Wall . I told them they need to be rechecked to Little Rock, and he said no that is where they go.. Sure enough they did not not make the flight. Question now is where are they. I have filed a claim with United Airlines but the tags are Austrian tags with ORD as final destination. How do I get my luggage?

     

    The Austrian bag office in ORD likely has them, but it will be difficult to get them.

    Hi , Im flying from New Orleans to Cabo via DFW with US Airways...is 1 hour at DFW sufficient time to transfer to the Cabo flight ?

     

    Actually both of your flights will be on American. Yes, that should be enough time. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security at DFW.

    I am arriving on a flight from south korea have to connect onto a united air flight concerned with customs and going to united terminal from intl. that I could miss my flight have only 2 hours why is it set up that have to exit one terminal go to another re check in and then proceed thru security all over again

     

    LAX was designed before international airline hubs existed. That's why it is spread over so many terminals. 2 Hours will be difficult. However, any time you enter the US, you have to go through security again, so in that regard LAX isn't any different. It is a difficult, but makeable connection.

     

  • T1 to T7 with a 2hr connection

    I will be arriving to JFK TI on Turkish Airlines from IST at 11:20 and have a connecting fight in T7on US Airways at 1:20 to PHX. My flights are on separate itineraries so I will have to recheck in at T7. Is 2hrs enough time to get through immigration and customs, change terminals, check in, and go through security and still make my flight?

     

    It's probably enough time, but it leaves very little time to spare in the case of delays or long lines at Immigration. Turkish and US Airways have an interline agreement, so you can show the Turkish agent in IST your US Airways confirmation and ask if they can check your bag through to PHX. They are not obligated to, but if they do, you will be able to re-check your bag in T1 at the transfer desk. Also, be sure to check in online for your US Airways flight before you leave Turkey. Finally, and this is important, be aware that US Airways has moved to Terminal 8 at JFK.

     

  • 82 min connection T4 to T2

    we are arriving in T4 from BRU at 1:37PM, our connecting flight to LAS is at 2:59PM. They changed our flights around chopping 30 min of our transfer time. I'm wondering if 82 minutes will be enough time...

     

    82 minutes is 8 minutes below the minimum time for such a connection. However, if you call to be rebooked, your only options will to be to add another connection in Detroit or Atlanta.

     

    There should be another flight at 7:15PM, hope they can put us on that one if we don't make it :)

     

    and at 5:15PM I see...

     

    If you prefer then, you can contact who you booked your ticket through and ask to be rebooked on the 5:15 flight, since you had an involuntary schedule change to a connection below 90 minutes.

    Flying from Lincoln,Nebraska to Ottawa Canada, with a connection in Chicago. Only have 1 hour - is that enough time???

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will be connected inside security.

    I land from manchester into gate B27A at Frankfurt and have a layover leaving Frankfurt from gate a06. Does anyone know how far these are in walking distance from each other???

     

    They are fairly close, connected by a tunnel.

    AA just changed my arrival in LAX to 8:55am. I have to connect to AS for a 9:45am departure. Separate tickets. Carry on only. Flying First on AS. Can we make the connection? Thanks

     

    Yes, I think you can if you check in online for your AS flight. AA runs a shuttle bus between T4 and T6.

    We are arriving MIA at 11:31am with a connection to GCM at 12:30pm. I saw in a previous post our baggage will be checked through. But will this one-hour layover allow us enough time to reach the gate for our connecting flight?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time assuming both flights are on American or American Eagle. All AA gates are connected inside security at MIA.

    Hi, flying in Air Newzeland 01/11/14 landing at 11.45am. I have a Southwest airlines flight to Houston aleaving at 2.30pm. Do u think I will make the Southwest flight? Please explain the procedure re customs and baggage collection & how to get to the Southwest airlines area?

     

    You will arrive in the International Termina, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs. Then you have to follow the signs to the airtrain to Terminal 1 and then exit and check your bags with Southwest. If you want a good boarding number, check in with Southwest online before you leave Australia. Also, be aware that Southwest does not fly nonstop from SFO to Houston. So your flight likely stops somewhere else first. Be aware of that.

     

    Thanks for that - do you think 2 hrs or so is enough time to make the Southwest Airlines flight

     

  • 45 minute layover.

    Hi, i am looking to book a flight and my return journey gives me a 45 minute layover in ATL. It's a Delta flight coming in from SAN with a 45 minute layover in ATL then back to London. Will the 45 minutes be enough and also I will have checked in luggage at SAN. Any help much appreciated. Thanks!

     

    You will check your baggage in SAN and won't see it again until you get to London. Yes, 45 minutes should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. the Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
