  • 45 minute DFW layover.... Will my luggage make it?
    Jan 29, 2015

    Hello. I have a BPT - DFW - SJU flight. I have a 45 minute layover in DFW with checked baggage. Is this enough time for myself and my checked bags to make the connection to SJU on 2/18/2015

    SW flight arrives at 3:30 and virgin flight departs at 4:45. I will not have any checked bags. Is this enough time between flights?

     

    Yes, if you check in online for your Virgin America flight and your first flight is on-time you should have enough time. It will take about 10 minutes to walk from T1 to T3.

     

  • Pick up bags?

    I am flying with United Airlines from Ecuador (stopping in Panama) to Newark, arriving 3:20 PM in terminal C. My flight with SAS to Copenhagen from terminal B departs at 5:30 PM. Two dif purchased flights. Do I have to do migration, pick up bag, go to the other terminal, check in and do security? Or will my bag go directly to CPH and I'm just able to go to the other terminal from inside the airport (no migration)? Will I make it?

     

    You can ask the Copa agent in Ecuador and show him your SAS confirmation. However, they are not obligated to check your bag through. And either way, you will have to claim your bag in Newark to go through US Customs. If it is tagged through to CPH then you can drop it at the re-check desk, but yes, if they only tag it through to EWR you will have to take it to the SAS counter in Terminal B. Every passenger arriving in the US has to go through US Immigration, even if they are connecting on elsewhere.

    My flight from MAN arrives at 3:30pm and departs at 4:45pm for STL. Is this enough time?

     

    That's definitely cutting it close. You will arrive in the C/D concourse, go through US Immigration, claim your bag, go through US Customs, then re-check your bag at the transfer desk, then you will go through security and to your departure gate, which may be on C or D but may also be in A, which will require taking the AeroTrain.

     

  • Using airport lounge on different terminal
    Jan 29, 2015

    My husband and I have a flight from Terminal 4, however, have passes for the United lounge on Terminal 7. Would it be possible for us to clear security on Terminal 4 and then head to the lounge on Terminal 7 for a bit before we head back to Terminal 4 for our flight? I guess the question is are the terminals connected post security and can I use the United lounge even though my flight is from a different terminal?

     

    No, T7 is not connected to any other terminal inside security.

     

  • layover time for int'l flight

    hello, I have a 45 minute layover in between my SAN - IAD flight to board my IAD-BAH flight. Is this enough time? I know at other airports I have to go through security a second time to get into the Int'l terminal. Is this not the case at IAD? many thanks!

     

    IAD does not have a separate international terminal. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will both be on the C/D concourse. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

  • san juan - atlanta- amsterdam. 48 min-Enough time?

    flying from San juan domestic (terminal S) and have 48 minutes to conecting flight to Amsterdam I, will we have enough time and how do we get between the two terminals?

     

    You don't actually have to change terminals. You just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse (could be T, A, B, or C) to your departure concourse (E or F). You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

  • 6hours layover enough to go out of the airport
    Jan 29, 2015

    Flight from Amsterdam to Honolulu with 6hours layover in Seattle purchased in 1 ticket. Would it be possible to get out of the airport to meet a friend for a couple of hours or isn`t it allowed to exit the security zone as my final destination is Hawaii? Despite the immigration time..

     

    Seattle is a tricky airport. If you are a connecting passenger off an international flight after customs you follow a route to re-check your bags, then go back through security, then you are back in the secure area. Passengers ending their journey in seattle follow a different route and have to put their bags on a conveyor to be taken to the baggage claim and then take a train to the main terminal. If you do want to see your friend, you can do that, but you will have to first follow the path for a connecting passenger and re-check your bag and go through security. Then you will take the train to another concourse, such as A or B. Then you can walk from A or B to the baggage claim where you will be outside the secure area. There are no checks for people exiting the secure area. To get to your departure gate, head back through security and to your departure concourse. So, generally, yes, it is possible, but it's a big hassle.

     

  • Flying domestic into terminal A and transfer to terminal B for Zurich

    United express lands at 8.30 pm and Swiss Airlines departs at 10.00PM then what is the best way to go from terminal A to B without security. Does the shuttle bus is just between the terminals or to other places too. its a one ticket so i think i dont have to recheck them. Please advise Thanks, also provide information if available from B terminal which gate Swiss airlines operate for Zurich Thanks .

     

    Yes, the shuttle bus is the only connection inside security. The shuttle bus takes you to the same part of Terminal B where the Swiss flight departs. It appears to use gate B67.

     

    Thanks for replying could you please tell me the frequency of bus and from which A gate i get the bus within the security

     

    The bus runs once every 10 minutes or so. The bus leaves from near A28.

    Looking for estimated times to arrive delta, pick up luggage, check in to iceland air, travel to gate

     

    That should be enough time.

    Hi I am due to arrive at Washington from LAX at 18.00 and then depart at 18.40 for MAN [UK]. Flying with UNITED Is this enough time for the connection? Seems rather 'tight'

     

    That is enough time but leaves very little to spare in case you have a delay. Both flights will be on the C/D concourse and all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • connection to sacramento

    Hi- flying from newcastle UK to sacramento all on united , when I land at Newark and go through immigration will I have to pick up my cases or will they go direct on to the next flight because it is the same carrier ( united) , also is 2 hours long enough to go through immigration and get to my departure terminal

     

    Yes, in Newark you will arrive in Terminal B or C, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then you can re-check your bags at the transfer desk. Your next flight will depart from Terminal A or C. If you arrived at Terminal B you will have to take the AirTrain to your departure terminal. Then you will go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

  • CUN / DFW / HNL

    Hi Flying with AA from Cancun, with a 5 hr connection in DFW before next AA flight to Honolulu. Not sure what Terminal I will arrive in, and then depart from. Any info would be appreciated. as there is nothing noted on my Itinerary. Tks

     

    You will arrive in Terminal D and likely depart in Terminal D as well. Even if you don't all terminals are connected inside security by the SkyLink train.

     

    Thanks Zap. Because the flight out of DFW is also with AA, is that why you think a Terminal D departure is likely ? Otherwise how do you find out what terminal the flight departs from ?

     

    I say D because the flight to HNL is on a large aircraft and the large aircraft mainly use Terminal D, since that is the international terminal, all the gates are set up for those types of aircraft.

     

  • Meeting arrivals at terminal 4 after arriving at terminal 7

    I have to meet some friend at terminal 4 but I will be arriving at terminal 7. Should I just cab aline it or meet them to share a cab

     

    A cab from JFK to Manhattan is about $60. So if you can meet up with them that would be preferable. You can take the AirTrain from T4 to T7 and meet them on the arrivals level. Better yet, if you are going to Manhattan you could take the AirTrain to the LIRR or Subway there. It's much less expensive and usually faster than a taxi.
