  • 40 mins connection - in from Halifax Canada
    Aug 22, 2014
    1
    I am going through Newark, coming from Halifax Canada on to LAX with final destination of SJC. Only 40 minutes between flights and I'm wondering if I will make it?

     

    If your first flight is on-time it's possible but it may be tough as you may arrive in Terminal A and depart from Terminal C. There is a shuttle that runs inside security, but it will chew some time.

     

  • Philadelphia- Atlanta- St Lucia

    I am flying to St Lucia from Philadelphia with a connection in Atlanta. I will be arriving in domestic south terminal and leaving out of the international terminal. I have 64 minutes in between flights. Is this enough time? Do I need to re-check my checked bags or will they be transferred through?

     

    You do not have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta. You will actually not arrive in the South Terminal. You will arrive at one of Delta's many midfield concourses T through D and depart from concourse E or F. All Concourses are connected inside security by the Plane Train. You should have enough time.

     

  • 2 hour 45 mins connection time from Terminal 4 to Terminal 1
    Aug 22, 2014

    Hello, I am booking a flight with Caribbean Airlines arriving from Trinidad at JFK Terminal 4 at 13:05 and then departing from Terminal 1 with Air China to Beijing at 15:50. This only gives me 2 hours 45mins to connect between two international flights and I am not a US citizen. Can you please tell me if this should be enough time? Many thanks!

     

    I think that would be very difficult. You probably need to be checked in for your Air China flight by 14:20 so that leaves only 1:15 to get out of customs and to Terminal 1, assuming the Caribbean flight is on-time, which they often are not.

     

  • TORONTO TO DUBAI EMIRATES

    hello, will be traveling from Toronto to Dubai connecting through JFK flying to JFK via Air Canada so landing in terminal 7. Will be flying out of terminal 4 with Emirates. Only have 1 hour and 20 minutes between flights. Will this be enough time to connect? Everything is purchased on the same ticket. I have a feeling this is really tight..

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration in Toronto. You will have to get your Emirates boarding pass before you leave Toronto or else you will probably get to T4 after the check-in cutoff. There is no room for any delays or hiccups.

     

  • PSP TO SEA TO AMS
    Aug 22, 2014

    I will be arriving from PSP with a 3 hr 15 min layover. Will I have to change concourses for my connection to AMS? If so, is there a set concourse for KLM Flights to AMS? I am planning on meeting my daughter for coffee at the airport, is there a way out at the departing concourse for simple re-entry. Would like to advise her which area to go.

     

    KLM does not fly to Seattle, so your flight to Amsterdam is on Delta. It will leave from the S Satellite. There is no simple re-entry, you will have to go to the main terminal, exit security, and then when you're done stand in the same large security line as everyone else. I don't think you'll get more than an hour to spend with your daughter.

     

  • DELTA TO ALITALIA
    Aug 21, 2014

    Non US citizens arriving with Delta from Haiti at 5:44 PM and leaving to Milan with Alitalia at 8:30 PM. Do you think we have enough time for custom clearance, baggage claim and re-check, terminal change etc? Will we save much time if we travel with hand luggage only? Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. Your bags should be tagged through to Milan in PAP so you will will be able to re-check them in T4 after going through customs rather than having to take them with you on the Airtrain to T1. Hand luggage will save you time, but again, I think you have enogh time evne with checked baggage.

    Hi I am coming in to IAH 13:55 from moscow on singapore airline, then need to transfer to terminal A american airline to DFW at 16:40, is 2 hy 40 min enough for immigration, train to terminal A and re check in?

     

    You will actually arrive in Terminal D. Yes, that should be enough time. The Inter-Terminal train runs underground outside security.

     

  • KEF-SEA-SFO

    Hi, just bought a ticket from KEF to SEA but will have to take a connecting flight to SFO (San Fran). I will land at 17:45 and I could buy at the latest a ticket with Virgin at 19:35 which is 1hr50min from landing to take off. I presume I will have to go through customs (i´m not an american) and pick up my luggage and hurry up to the gate or ? Is this enough time ? what is the minimum time? regards Haddi

     

    Since you are buying two separate tickets you will have to go to the main terminal to get your bags after clearing customs, then take your bags to your second airline's counter and then re-check them. Generally you have to do this 45 minutes before the flight. Alaska Airlines has an 20:50 SEA-SFO flight and a 21:25 SEA-OAK flight (OAK is right across the bay from SFO). I would recommend booking one of those.

     

    ok thanks so much for the info and a swift reply. I will check this out.

    I will arrive fromj Buffalo on United Express (Mesa Air) and going on Brussels Airline to Brussels out of concourse B. Will I have to go through security again?

     

    No, The C/D concourse where you will arrive and B where you will depart are connected inside security by the Aerotrain and mobile lounge.

     

  • ATL to AMS to BUD

    We are arriving from ATL on a DL flight at 8:20am, connecting to a KLM flight to BUD at 10:15am. Will we have enough time, and will we have to collect our luggage for customs? Thank you!

     

    You do not have to collect your luggage or pass through customs in Amsterdam as both the US and Hungary are outside the Schengen Area. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate and go through security.

     

  • Connection time 3 hours and 30 minutes

    Hi first of all thank you for your help ,,,, I'll arrive to terminal d Dallas dfw by emeratis airlines at 9:05 am then I'll have an international flight at the same terminal d by American airlines to cancun departure at 12:40 pm. Separate ticket is it enough time for connection? I have to pass security stamp my passport (I'm not USA or Europe citizen ) then collecting my bag then check in to next flight then passing through security. Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You should be out of customs by 10 AM at the latest, so that still leaves you 2 hrs and 40 minutes to check in for your American flight.

     

    Thank you very much

    You can walk through the corridors where the Inter-Terminal Train runs.

     

  • US Air PHX to MAN UK via PHL

    I will be flying US Air from Phoenix to Manchester UK with a plane change in Philadelphia. Arriving from PHX at gate C30 and departing from gate A18 and I have one hour if my flight is ontime. Do I need to run???

     

    No, a brisk walk should suffice. All you have to do is go from gate to gate.

     

  • Connecting through IAD

    I'm flying via Saudia Airlines from Riyadh to IAD, then catching a connecting flight to Detroit via Delta Airlines. I booked the ticket for the entire flight through Saudia Airlines. Do I have to go through customs and claim my baggage in IAD before connecting to Detroit?

     

    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check your bags in IAD, then you will go through security and take the Aerotrain to your departure gate on Concourse B.

    My flight arrives at ORD from LHR to terminal 5 at 15:15. My connecting flight is again at 17:15 in terminal 1. Do I need to claim my bag and re-checkin again. Is 2hrs is enough to change the terminal

     

    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bag, go through US Customs, then re-check your bag immediately after with United, then take the ATS train to Terminal 1 or 2 and go through security and to your gate. Check the monitors - if your departing gate to Peoria starts with E or F, it's faster to ride the ATS to T2 rather than T1. Yes, 2 hours should be enough time if your flight from London is on-time.

     

    What about coming back is it the same way do I need to do a check in again at Chicago airport or it will be directly sent to London from peoria.

     

    On the way back you will only have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Chicago, no immigration and nothing with your baggage. Also, your flight TO London (if on United) will depart from Terminal 1.
