  • SFO to IAD to DUBAI
    Apr 18, 2015
    I am flying from SFO to DUBAI w/ United but I have a connecting flight at IAD. Do I have to go through security again once I land at IAD to catch my next plane??? I have abour 2 hrs and 55 minutes before my next flight. Pls advice...


    No, on your way to Dubai you will not have to go through security in IAD. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both on the C/D concourse. You should have plenty of time.


    Thanks! I was also wondering if I were to check in a luggage in SFO... do I have to claim it at IAD??? OR... will it be transferred for me so that I can just go straight to my departure gate to my connecting flight to Dubai?


    It will be transferred for you. Literally all you have to do in IAD is walk from one gate to another.


  • ORD connection time from SFO to YXU through ORD
    Apr 18, 2015
    I am flying from SFO to London Ontario, canada through ORD on united/united express. There are two flights, one has a 1 hour 15 min connection the other option is a 2 hour connection. Is the 1 hour 15 min enough or should I book the 2 hour connection time


    1 hr 15 is enough. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Would the gates be in the same terminal? And is the 6:38 am united flight from SFO usually on time?


    Morning departures tend to be on-time more often. You will arrive in Terminal 1 and likely depart from Terminal 2, but they are connected inside security by a walkway.


  • 1 hrs 25 minutes connecting time & customs on United airlines
    Apr 17, 2015
    I fly London to IAD arriving at 3:25PM on United. I have a connecting United flight to Charlotte with an one hour 25 min connecting time. Is that enough time to go thru customs? I then fly Charlotte to Myrtle Beach, SC. but have lots of time on that portion of the trip. I am worried about the IAD connection to Charlotte.


    It is 5 minutes below the recommended International to Domestic connection time, but if both flights are on United and your flight from London is on-time, I think you can make it.

    Hi! I have a flight from Minneapolis to Chicago and then a connection to Abu Dhabi, but I will arrive to terminal 2 and the flight departures from terminal 5... I have 2 different tickets, so I probably have to claim my baggage, and check in again, I am also not from U.S. so I have to go through migration before I leave the country... Is it 3 hours enough time to do this?


    There is no US exit immigration. You will just have to go through security in T5. 3 hours should be enough time.


  • HNL - SFO - LAS
    Apr 17, 2015
    This is my first time flying off island and by myself especially..My time to switch planes is 1 hour and 12 minutes. Im flying on United to SFO then I'm not sure which aircraft i am taking next to jump to LAS. Is this enough time to possibly change terminals if i need to?


    Check your reservation. If both flights are on United all you have to do in SFO is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 3, in which case you will have plenty of time.


  • Connecting time
    Apr 17, 2015
    I will be arriving to Terminal A from savannah (by United) and I have 1 hr 35 min time for the connecting flight to Mumbai (air India) at terminal B, is this time gap is sufficient, pls advice.


    Did you purchase one ticket or two separate tickets? If one ticket it should be enough time as your baggage will be tagged through to Mumbai. If two separate tickets I do not think it will be enough time to claim your bags from United and transfer them to Air India.


  • Flight fr PSR to JFK
    Apr 17, 2015
    I have a flight from Pescara (PSR) to Rome (FCO) It arrives in Rome at 12:45pm. At 2:45 I have a flight to usa. 1st Question do I have to check out the baggage in Rome or it will be transported to the USA flight. 2nd How far is terminal 1 to terminal 3 and is there ground transportation between terminals


    If you purchased all your tickets together your bags will be checked through to the US. You walk from T1 to T3 - it's not that far.


  • Cathay to delta connection
    Apr 17, 2015
    Hello I am looking at an arrival from Hong Kong on Cathay at 1:05PM (I believe Terminal 7) and then a connection to Montreal on Delta at 3:20 PM (terminals 2 or 4). Is this doable?


    Booked together as one ticket, it's definitely doable. Booked as two separate tickets it's doable, but depends on everything going very smoothly in order for it to work since you will have to transfer your bags from T7 to T4 yourself.


  • Arriving from Johannesburg and need to connect to another US city
    Apr 17, 2015
    How much time should I plan between flights to go through customs, collect bags and get to domestic flight? We are US citizens and flights will be on South African Airways and United.


    90 minutes if your tickets are purchased on the same reservation. 2.5 hours if you're purchasing two separate tickets.

    First leg of my journey is on KLM and then when i get to amsterdam and change planes i have 1hr 40 mins to do so, do i need to collect my luggage or will it go straight to the next plane? and where would i need to collect my luggage next detroit? any help appreciated as im doing this trip alone


    In Detroit you will arrive in the McNamara Terminal and be funneled directly to US Immigration, after that you will claim your bags and go through US Customs, then you will re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then follow signs for Departures, go through security, and follow signs to your departure gate to Cleveland.


    ok thank you, i forgot to put when i change planes in amsterdam i will be going from KLM to DELTA do you know if i have to pick my luggage up or will they transfer it for me?


    They will transfer it for you in Amsterdam.


  • 2 hrs 15 connection - TBIT to United domestic. Enough Time?
    Apr 17, 2015
    United Airlines changed time of my domestic flight (LAX-O'Hare) from 1600 to 1445. I arrive into LAX on Air New Zealand from Auckland at 1230. Is 2 hrs 15 long enough to clear customs, walk to United domestic terminal, recheck bags and clear security to board? My dilemma is the later flight is at 1800. Damn them for changing the flight from 1600! Thanks in advance.


    That should still be enough time. If purchased together your bags will be tagged through to Chicago and you will be able to re-check them at the transfer desk right after clearing Customs.


  • YEG - MSP (70 min)- CAN
    Apr 17, 2015
    Will I make a a connection in MSP (Delta) in 70 min? Departing city is Edmonton (YEG) and final destination is Cancun (CUN)


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Edmonton.

    Hi I will come from Dubai to Chicago and after 4 hr 30 min to connect my next flight to Nashville... So is it enough time for that? Both tickets are different... I am coming with emirates ... I think emirates airline is not punctual in time, is It? For that I will take long stopover... I have same schedule for return my journey... Thanks in advance... Priyank Patel...


    That should be enough time both ways. Emirates runs on-time pretty regularly. What airline are you flying to Nashville?


    American Airline for Nashville...


    Yes. that should be enough time. Terminal 3 where American operates and Terminal 5 where Emirates is are only one stop apart on the ATS Train.


    Thanks mate....

    if I come in on an Alaska flight and need to switch to southwest do I need to go through security??/ no checked bag


    As long as you check in online for your Southwest flight and print out your boarding pass, no you do not have to go through security. All gates in Seattle are connected inside security.


    Thank you!
