  • Flight to TGV connection time
    Apr 28, 2015

    I am arriving CDG Terminal 2A at 755AM from Philadelphia. Would I have enough time to collect bags, go thru customs and then get to the 10:16AM TGV train departure?

    Hello, I will be flying to the US from London and will land at JFK Terminal 8 at 15:40. I will then have to catch a flight to Washington Ronald Reagan at 16:55, also from Terminal 8, leaving a transfer time of 1hr15mins . My flights were all booked at the same time and so are all on one ticket. Will this be enough time and will I have to collect my luggage and re-check or not? I've read conflicting things. Never flown to the US so all advice is appreciated!

    Hi, I will be arriving in LAX from Copenhagen (Norwegian Airlines) at 18:30 and will be taking a flight from LAX to PHX (Southwest airlines) at 20:25. Is this enough time to go through customs, collect my bag, and then re-check it in with Southwest? Thanks

     

    It will be quite difficult. You will have to hope your Norwegian flight is on-time and that lines in immigration are short, then go left (do not follow the signs for connecting passengers), exit the International Terminal, and run to your left (against the flow of vehicle traffic) until you get to Terminal 1. Lines in T1 can be bad but are generally less bad late in the day. You can check-in for your Southwest flight online before you leave Copenhagen.

     

  • Questions about travelling between Terminal 2 and Terminal 3

    Hello I land in Terminal 2, with an AirCanada flight at 10:41am, and my next flight is is Terminal 3 at 11:50am with a US Airways flight. Will I have have enough time to get to the flight?? And will I have to get my luggage or go through security? Thank you.

     

    Just to clarify my above comment. The tickets were all purchased together, it is a layover.

     

    If the tickets were bought together you should not have to claim your bags or go through security. You can walk from T2 to T3 inside security. Just walk to the base of T2 and make a right.

     

    Also, yes, you should have enough time if your first flight is on-time and also you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Canada.

    I am travelling into Washington Dulles from Orlando, landing at 1120 on UA 1298. My connection flight is from Washington Dulles to Narita, Japan at 1220 on NH001. I will have checked in luggage. Can you please let me know if I need to clear customs at Washington Dulles and do I need to collect my bags at Dulles and check them through again? Is the one hour layover too tight? Thanks!

     

    No, you do not go through US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate on the C or D concourse to your departure gate on the B concourse using the AeroTrain.

    Do I need to collect my bags, go through immigration and then recheck my bags before getting on my connecting flight? If so, I have 90 minutes in between flights. I

     

    Yes, you need to do precisely that. You should barely have enough time if everything goes smoothly. If you miss your connection, thankfully American flies lots of flights from DFW to LGA that you can be rebooked on.

    Hello there! I have a flight from Berlin (TXL) to Chicago and then a domestic connection to Miami (all in one tricket) I arrive to terminal 5 and then departure from terminal 3 Do I have to claim my baggage, and recheck? I am also not the U.S. citize so I have to go through emigration and custom at ORD am i right? Is 1 hour 55 mins enough time to catch the flight to MIA?

     

    Yes, in ORD you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then take the ATS Train to Terminal 3 and go through security. You should have enough time.

    I forgot to specify that frisr flight is Lufthansa, second one United Airlines (Lufthansa group). Thanks

     

    You will just go through Schengen Exit Passport control in Frankfurt. You should have enough time.

     

  • Spirit connection BOG-FLL-DTW

    Hi, I am traveling from Bogota to Fort Lauderdale, the flight arrives at 6:55pm and then the second flight departs to Detroit (both Spirit flights) at 8:20pm... Is that enough time?... (When going back DET-FLL-BOG: the first flight arrives at 9:14am and the flight to Bogota departs at 10:25am...same airline...same question) Thanks.

     

    Yes, it should be enough time in both connections. However, if your flight from Bogota is late you will probably be stuck in FLL overnight and that probably means sleeping on the floor.

    I will be landing at terminal 2 at 11:25 am and my connecting flight will be taking off from Terminal 5 at 13:30. Will 2 hrs & 5 mins time enough to take my connecting intenational flight. please someone give me sincere advise . I ma really scared.

     

    What airlines are you flying? Were your tickets purchased separately or together? Will you have checked bags? I can't really answer this question without that info.

    Hi! I am planning to travel to SFO from Singapore on SQ16 via Seoul. It is scheduled to land at 1235 in the SFO international terminal. I would then like to connect to UA5187 from SFO Terminal 3 to Calgary. The UA flight departs at 1401. I will have checked in luggage but both carriers are a part of star alliance so I am hoping to get my bags checked all the way through. Will I (and my bags!) be able to make the connection? Thanks!

     

    It is 4 minutes below the minimum connection time for International to Domestic, even if your bags are tagged through to Calgary. You will still have to claim your bags to go through US Customs.

    Hello, I am traveling from HNL to Seattle via Alaska Airlines and connecting to American Airlines operated by US Airways to Phoenix and on to Orlando Florida that same flight. At the Seattle Airport are the gates for Alaska Airlines and American Airlines/US Airways within the same concourse? Do I have to get my baggage from Alaska Airlines and check into American Airlines/US Airways and go through a TSA checkpoint? Traveling with young children and the layover is 1 hr 15 minutes.

     

    Were your tickets purchased separately or together? If together, your baggage will be transferred and all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Alaska uses 3 concourses - C, D, and N. US Airways uses A.

    I am arriving in Terminal 1 and my granddaughter is arriving shortly after in terminal 2. LA is our final destination and I wonder can I get from T1 to T2without leaving secure area. I hope to be able to meet her as she comes through the gate...

     

    No, T1 is not connected to any other terminal inside security. You'll have to meet her outside security.

    Flying into Terminal C at 7:40AM, fly out of Terminal A at 8:28AM. Any concerns that I will not make it in time to my gate?

     

    ...to add clarity, I am flying United...Thx

     

    United runs a shuttle bus inside security between C and A, but even so, it's a very tight connection. Hope your first flight is early.

    Austin 5483 to Detroid to Paris 8573 which concourse do we arrive in Detroid and which one will we be leaving from?? enough time?? have tickets already and am freaking out

     

    If both flights are on Delta they will both be in the McNamara Terminal. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
