  • Enough time for connection in JFK Terminal 8?
    Oct 22, 2014
    Arriving by USAIR at gate 34, Terminal 8 at 1516, departing by American from gate 46, Terminal 8 at 1600; enough time?


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

    From Prague (PRG) with a 55 minute layover in FRA, on the way to PHL in the States. All on one ticket with Lufthansa, both flights Terminal 1. Will I have to go through passport control at Frankfurt if I'm coming from PRG or will I be able to go directly to the gate?


    You will go through Schengen exit passport control as you exit the schengen wing and then you will go through security at your departure gate.


  • connection timing
    Oct 22, 2014
    haven't booked yet, but i will probably be flying from toronto to palm springs with a connection in lax. the connection time is 90 min. we have customs pre clearance in toronto, which should be allowing the first flight to arrive as a domestic flight rather than an international flight. assuming the first flight arrives on time, would i have enough time to get from terminal 2 to terminal 7/8? thanks


    Yes, that should be enough time. The fastest way from T2 to T7 is to walk straight across the airport through the parking garages. It's maybe a 15 minute walk. You will have to go through security again in T7.


  • Short layover for international flight
    Oct 22, 2014
    If I arrive from Dayton at 6:20 via American Airlines and depart for Jamaica at 7:40 via US Airways, will I have enough time to make the connection? Tickets were purchased together.


    Both of your flights will be operated by American and be in Terminal 3. You will have plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • is this connection time feasible
    Oct 22, 2014
    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?


    Yes, it is possible. Note that most Delta domestic flights use T2, not T4. Where are you flying on Delta? You will be able to re-check your bags at the transfer desk in T1 and Alitalia should be able to issue your Delta boarding passes at your point of origin.


    From JFK we fly to Austin, TX on Delta


    Yes, that flight will leave from Terminal 2.


  • Time to clear customs on December 2
    Oct 22, 2014
    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!!!


  • T8 Connection
    Oct 22, 2014
    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
    Oct 22, 2014
    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.


  • US Airways from New Orleans to Cabo via DFW
    Oct 22, 2014
    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.


  • concerned about my connection
    Oct 22, 2014
    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
    Oct 21, 2014
    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
    Oct 21, 2014
    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.


  • United connection
    Oct 21, 2014
    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.


  • B27A/ A06
    Oct 21, 2014
    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.


  • Terminal 4 to Terminal 6
    Oct 21, 2014
    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.
