  • T1 to T7 with a 2hr connection

    I will be arriving to JFK TI on Turkish Airlines from IST at 11:20 and have a connecting fight in T7on US Airways at 1:20 to PHX. My flights are on separate itineraries so I will have to recheck in at T7. Is 2hrs enough time to get through immigration and customs, change terminals, check in, and go through security and still make my flight?

     

    It's probably enough time, but it leaves very little time to spare in the case of delays or long lines at Immigration. Turkish and US Airways have an interline agreement, so you can show the Turkish agent in IST your US Airways confirmation and ask if they can check your bag through to PHX. They are not obligated to, but if they do, you will be able to re-check your bag in T1 at the transfer desk. Also, be sure to check in online for your US Airways flight before you leave Turkey. Finally, and this is important, be aware that US Airways has moved to Terminal 8 at JFK.

     

  • 82 min connection T4 to T2

    we are arriving in T4 from BRU at 1:37PM, our connecting flight to LAS is at 2:59PM. They changed our flights around chopping 30 min of our transfer time. I'm wondering if 82 minutes will be enough time...

     

    82 minutes is 8 minutes below the minimum time for such a connection. However, if you call to be rebooked, your only options will to be to add another connection in Detroit or Atlanta.

     

    There should be another flight at 7:15PM, hope they can put us on that one if we don't make it :)

     

    and at 5:15PM I see...

     

    If you prefer then, you can contact who you booked your ticket through and ask to be rebooked on the 5:15 flight, since you had an involuntary schedule change to a connection below 90 minutes.

    Flying from Lincoln,Nebraska to Ottawa Canada, with a connection in Chicago. Only have 1 hour - is that enough time???

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will be connected inside security.

    They are fairly close, connected by a tunnel.

    AA just changed my arrival in LAX to 8:55am. I have to connect to AS for a 9:45am departure. Separate tickets. Carry on only. Flying First on AS. Can we make the connection? Thanks

     

    Yes, I think you can if you check in online for your AS flight. AA runs a shuttle bus between T4 and T6.

    We are arriving MIA at 11:31am with a connection to GCM at 12:30pm. I saw in a previous post our baggage will be checked through. But will this one-hour layover allow us enough time to reach the gate for our connecting flight?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time assuming both flights are on American or American Eagle. All AA gates are connected inside security at MIA.

    Hi, flying in Air Newzeland 01/11/14 landing at 11.45am. I have a Southwest airlines flight to Houston aleaving at 2.30pm. Do u think I will make the Southwest flight? Please explain the procedure re customs and baggage collection & how to get to the Southwest airlines area?

     

    You will arrive in the International Termina, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs. Then you have to follow the signs to the airtrain to Terminal 1 and then exit and check your bags with Southwest. If you want a good boarding number, check in with Southwest online before you leave Australia. Also, be aware that Southwest does not fly nonstop from SFO to Houston. So your flight likely stops somewhere else first. Be aware of that.

     

    Thanks for that - do you think 2 hrs or so is enough time to make the Southwest Airlines flight

     

  • 45 minute layover.

    Hi, i am looking to book a flight and my return journey gives me a 45 minute layover in ATL. It's a Delta flight coming in from SAN with a 45 minute layover in ATL then back to London. Will the 45 minutes be enough and also I will have checked in luggage at SAN. Any help much appreciated. Thanks!

     

    You will check your baggage in SAN and won't see it again until you get to London. Yes, 45 minutes should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. the Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

    Yes, you can take the AirTrain.

     

  • 1 hr layover,enough time? Passport control?

    I am flying from SFO to BUD with a 1 hr layover in AMS. Is this enough time to make it for the connection flight? Do I need to go through passport control? Also, would my baggages make it on time fro the connection flight?

     

    You will go through Schengen passport control when you enter the Schengen pier of the terminal. You and your baggage should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

  • Australian passport and clearing customs in DFW for connecting flight

    I will be travelling from Cancun to Vegas via DFW on an Australian passport. Both flights are with AA landing at 14.20 with only 1 hour and 35 minutes between landing and takeoff, Will this be enough time to clear customs check in etc?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk. Then you will go through security then take the SkyLink train to your departure terminal if it is not Terminal D. You should be issued both boarding passes in Cancun.

    Hello! Is one hour enough to make a connection from a domestic US flight (arriving from San Antonio) to an international flight (departing to Amsterdam)?

     

    Yes. that should be plenty of time if your tickets were purchased together. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security.

     

  • Terminal 2 to Terminal 4

    NZ flight arrives 10:30 AM, American Airlines flight departs 12:55 PM terminal 4. Assuming on-time arrival, can I make this connection?

     

    Yes, you should be OK. If you purchased flights together you can drop your bags at the re-check desk after customs in the International Terminal. Otherwise you will have to take it to Terminal 4 and pay a checked bag fee. Either way you should have enough time. Terminal 4 is directly next to the International Terminal (to your right as you exit the International Terminal).

     

    Also, I should point out that Air New Zealand will be moving from T2 to the International Terminal soon. Those are the instructions for the International Terminal. If you arrive in T2, the instructions are similar and you still have enough time, but it's a longer trip between Terminals.
