  • Enough Connection Time?
    Mar 27, 2015
    1
    Flying JetBlue to BOS arriving at 9:56pm in Terminal C. I need to collect my checked bags, and re-check in with Turkish Airlines in Terminal E. Turkish Airlines flight is leaving at 11:45pm. I spoke with JetBlue and they said that it should be enough time to connect flights even though it will be under two separate reservations; I am still a little hesitant. Is this enough time for the connection? Or, should I take an earlier JetBlue flight arriving into BOS at 6:44pm (which would give me an awfully long layover)?

     

    Is probably OK assuming it's on-time. It leaves you around 45 minutes to get off the plane, get your bags, and get them to Terminal E. It leaves no room for any delays of the first flight though.

    I'm travelling through Atlanta Airport to Rome and I have 1 hr layover in Atlanta. I have 2 kids and I'm pregnant. Is this enough time to connect, both flight are on Delta Airlines. And is there any way I can know which terminal I'll be arriving at and which terminal I'm leaving from?? TIA

     

    where are you flying into Atlanta from? All you have to do in Atlanta is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to the E or F concourse where your flight to Rome will depart. You should have plenty of time if your first flight is on-time.

     

    We're flying from Jacksonville Airport. Thank you :)

    Hi. I'll be flying from MCO to JFK on JetBlue arriving 1832hrs Terminal 5. I'll then need to catch an international flight on SQ departing 2055hrs Terminal 4. I bought the tickets separately and will have a bag to check in. Will I have enough time for connection? Thanks!

     

    It's possible, but you'll need to hope your JetBlue flight is on-time and your baggage comes quickly.

     

  • LHR to Orlando and Orlando to LHR connections

    Hi, Does the following schedule allow enough time for transfers? I'm a bit concerned that both are cutting it a bit fine? United: Heathrow via Houston to Orlando UA 5 07APR LHR-IAH 1340 1800 UA 1580 07APR IAH-MCO 1933 2247 United: Orlando via Washington to Heathrow UA 1106 10APR MCO-IAD 1858 2110 UA 924 07APR IAD-LHR 2155 #1020

     

    Both connections leave enough time. In Houston you will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, and go through security and to your departure gate, which will likely be in Terminal C. In Washington all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will both be in the C/D concourse.

    I am a UK citizen who will be returning to London from Vegas via Houston on United airlines. United have given me 35 minutes to get from terminal C at Houston to terminal E. The travel company claim United have given me enough time but I am not so sure. Will I need to claim my bag, re-check them in and do the whole passport control thing again? All help gratefully received!

     

    All you have to do in Houston on your way to London is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time. Just follow signs to your departure gate.

     

  • LIN-FCO-NRT 1:10 hr connection

    We arrive from Milan (LIN) at 14:10 in FCO terminal 1 and have to catch a flight from FCO terminal 3 at 15:20 giving us 1hr 10mins to do it. Both of us have EU passports and all flights are Alitalia. Is this enough time? Cheers

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. Just follow signs to your departure gate.

     

  • Enough time for customs and immigration?

    I have booked a tour of Italy with Tauck and they made the flight arrangements - Delta 193 and Delta 2558 - from Venice, Italy to Houston with a one hour 36 min layover in Atlanta. I have a concern that this isn't enough time to make it through customs and immigration? there are later flights available into Houston but I plan to work the next day and would like to get into Houston as early as possible and have a two hour drive from Houston. Should I take a chance and hope I can get a later flight if I don't make the connection.

     

    That should be enough time. However, if the flight arrangements are still changeable you may want to look into flying Venice-Amsterdam-Houston and see if that is available for the same fare.

     

  • LAX international connections

    We are flying Air France from Papeete to LAX in August. We will have only two hours and 5 minutes to clear customs and make a connecting domestic flight on Southwest Airlines back to Denver. Is there anyway to get bags checked all the way through? How do we recheck bags on Southwest and will two hours be enough time? The flight is scheduled to land at 640pm. Any information would be greatly appreciated as we are not familiar with LAX.

     

    NO! That is not enough time. Southwest does not have interline baggage agreements with any other airlines. You will have to take your bags with you to Terminal 1. Unless your Air France flight arrives very early it is very unlikely you will get to Terminal 1 before the baggage cutoff. Terminal 1 also typically has quite long security lines.

     

  • flying in from Mexico City, going to Toronto

    I will be flying in from Mexico City on United and flying out to Toronto. Lay-over time is just under two hours, without considering delays. Will I have enough time to go through customs and catch my flight?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Because you are on an International to International connection at IAH, if you have checked bags you shouldn't have to claim them to go through US Customs.

    I am flying in from Toronto and then taking the connecting flight to Mexico City. The lay-over is 1 hour and 10 minutes. will I have to change terminals? and if so is there enough time?

     

    You may have to change terminals, however, all terminals are connected inside security by the TerminaLink train. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in IAH is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.

     

  • Alitalia transfers in FCO

    ZAP, you seem like a person with all the info! I am ticketed on AZ from ORD-FCO-IST, does FCO have a self contained international terminal, or will I have to clear Schengen customs, transfer security and then make my way to the IST gate? Also, is there a shuttle/tram on the secure side between T1 and T3? I have 2hr 55min for the transfer so ideally I should be fine time wise. Thanks for all of you help!

    Travelling in May from Springfield, MO to Chicago on American. Arrive at 8:00 am. Leave at 8:40 also on American. Want to be sure it is enough time. Thanks so much in advance...great site!

     

    That should be enough time if the first flight is on-time. All AA gates at O'Hare are connected inside security in Terminal 3.

    Hi, I booked flight tickets with American Airlines, but I have only 1hour30 minutes left between my flight connection. Is that enough time? The first terminal is not precised, but the second one will be Terminal 8. Any answer welcome!

     

    Where are you flying from on the first flight? All American Airlines flights use Terminal 8. Is the first flight a codeshare flight? I can't answer your question without this info.

     

  • Time enough for connection? Lansing-Minneapolis-NY

    I will be flying in from Lansing MI on a plane where I understand all carryon luggage is stowed beneath. Flight arrives at 4:42pm. My flight to NY leaves at 5:37pm. Do I have enough time to get my luggage (which is carryon on to NY flight) and catch flight? I'd like to NOT have to pay to have carryon checked in, as it's small. Thanks!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. The MSP airport is fairly compact.

     

  • Miami-JFK-Manchester 50min connection

    I have a 45 minute connection at New York JFK, arriving from Miami at Terminal 8 at 06.35pm and departing to Manchester, UK at Terminal 8 at 07.20pm. Will I only have to go through immigration, and is this enough time? Flying with American Airlines.

     

    You will not have to go through Immigration or Security. There is no US Immigration when departing the US. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
