  • International Connection in DTW with Delta-Air France
    Oct 31, 2014
    1
    I will have my flight from CLT to DTW (Delta), and I will connect to Air France From DTW to CDG(Paris), to do so, I will have 40min, is that enough? I also wondering if I need to check out my baggage there or not? I mean by not, the carrier would take care of my luggage. Thank you

     

    You won't have to do anything with your baggage in Detroit. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will both be in the McNamara Terminal.

     

  • Security at JFK for international transfer - duty free

    Hi I am flying in JFK from Jamaica tomorrow afternoon with Delta to then transfer onto a London bound flight with Delta again. Could someone tell me the rules regarding duty free. I wish to take two bottles of rum with me from Jamaica but unsure whether this will cause issues in JFK when passing through security to catch my London flight. Thanks.

     

    You will claim your baggage to go through US Customs, then, before you re-check your baggage you need to put the Rum in your checked bags. If you are not checking bags you won't be able to bring the Rum back with you.

     

  • 1 hour layover

    We will be flying from new york to vancouver with a 1 hour layover in seattle. Is that enough time? All our tickets have been purchased together. Don't know if it makes a difference but we are both dutch citizens, so no us or canadian passport.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, assuming you purchased a single reservation. You will go through Canadian immigration and customs when you get to Vancouver.

Will it be sufficient to complete all the process and board the next flight. Waiting for your valuable comments and response

     

    It should be enough time but there isn't much time to spare.

     

  • Fort Wayne to Montreal

    I am flying from Fort Wayne to Chicago on AA and from Chicago to Montreal on Air Canada. I have to reclaim my bag, go through security/immigration and switch terminals from 3 to 2. Where do I go to reclaim and recheck my bag and will I have enough time with 2hrs?

     

    You have the process all wrong. First of all, did you purchase your tickets separately or together? If together your bags will be checked through to Montreal and you won't see them until you get there. If together you will have to claim them in Terminal 3 and take them to Terminal 2. Secondly, you do not have to go through US Immigration when leaving the US. If you purchased tickets together all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate in T3 to your departure gate in T2, they are connected inside security. If you purchased separate tickets, all you have to do is claim your bag in T3, go up to the departure level and to T2 (which is right next door) and check it with Air Canada, then go through security. You have enough time.

    I am planning to book a flight on LH from YYZ in business and making a connection through FRA to LHR again on LH. Is 40 minutes enough time for the connection?

     

    That's a pretty difficult connection.

     

  • Alaska Air from Fairbanks to LAX and checkin on Cathay Pacific to HK

    I am booked on a flight from Fairbanks to Anchorage to LAX on 22 May 2015 and arriving at LAX on 23 May 2015 at 0650 hours, We have then to check our baggage in with Cathay Pacific for Hong Kong leaving at 0940 hours. Will there be enough time to collect baggage with Alaska Airlines and then travel to the Cathay Pacific Terminal at LAX to check in. Do we have enough time as we have just under 3 hours for al this to happen? Please help. Thank you

     

    Yes, that will be PLENTY of time. You will have your bags by 7:20. Then it's maybe a 10 minute walk to the International Terminal where the Cathay check-in desks are.

     

  • International to domestic transfer

    Arriving into LAX from Melbourne on new United Dreamliner. Arriving Terminal 7 and departing Terminal 7 for Orlando, also on United. Connection time 2:20. I have not found any relevant post about the process in Terminal 7 for UA international arrivals and was wondering if I will have enough time?

     

    Yes, you will have enough time. You will arrive in T7, go through US Immigration, go claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go upstairs and through security. You should have plenty of time.

     

  • Transit from terminal 1 to terminal 5 for the flight to Atlanta
    Oct 31, 2014

    Please kindly provide me indications on how to get to terminal 5 from terminal 1, do I need to follow transit indication since I will be arriving from Catania? which gate has been scheduled for the flight Rome - Atlanta ? Should I be doing the check in once again?

     

    Did you purchase separate tickets or together? If you purchased tickets together and are given your Atlanta boarding pass in Catania, you can access your departure gate in T3 through T3 Schengen exit passport control without going to T5 first (T5 has no actual gates). Once you get there approach the Delta agent as they will have to check your documents and issue you a new boarding pass.

  • travel from domestic UNITED to international SQ

    im concern with my baggages since i buy the ticket separately, UNITED might not help me to interconnect the baggage to the final desination. how to i go about it?

     

    You will have to pay to check your bag at your origin, then claim your bag from United, then take it to the Singapore Airlines check-in counter in the International Terminal. You will need at least 90 minutes, preferably 2 hours to make such a connection.

     

    Claim baggage from United is it the same level as to walk the connected walkway from gates 75 to international G? Cos my parents are eldery to handle 3 checkin baggages. Worry they might be lost in the big crowded airport. Thanks

     

  • Flight from Montreal via PHL to London Heathrow

    Hi, American Airlines did a schedule change on my return flight to Europe, sending me via PHL rather than a direct flight from Montreal. I am concerned about my layover time, which is only 1H30 (I didn't get to choose) I am a Belgian citizen with a valid ESTA. Should I be concerned about possibly missing my connection to London? Will I have to pick up my baggages / clear customs in that time frame? Max.

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. Your arrival into PHL will be like a domestic flight. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will likely arrive in Terminal F and depart from Terminal A, which are connected inside security by a shuttle bus.

     

    Thank you a lot for your information ! I got AA to schedule my London flight to a later one, allowing me 2 hours and 30 minutes. Thanks for your help. Max

    I will be leaving from YQB, going to SJO, but i have to connect trough EWR (11h connection,overnight stay) and then IAD. I only have 1h45 to go through IAD, what is the process that I will have to go trough? I am flying with United all all airports. Do I have to re-check my baggage somewhere? Where do I go through customs?

     

    I am wrong, actually I have 1h25 to go through IAD

     

    You will go through US Immigration and Customs when you arrive in Newark. In IAD all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will likely arrive in concourse A, which is connected to concourse C/D where your SJO flight will depart by the Aerotrain and mobile lounge.
