    I will have 1 hr and 45 minutes to get from a United domestic flt Terminal 1 to the International Terminal (United to Rome). Is that enough time? I have TSA and am Platinum with United, which helps.

     

  • Transfer from Delta to Alaskan

    My family arrives at SEA at 6.56pm from SYD via LAX and we are thinking about booking the 8:30pm Alaskan flight to DEN. There is 6 of us and we need to collect checked luggage. Do we have a chance with 94 minutes between flights?

     

    That would be pretty difficult to make it if purchasing two separate tickets as you will have to transfer your bags yourself. Also, Alaska Airlines doesn't fly nonstop from LAX to DEN, sot hat flight you're looking at is operated by another airline, probably American.

    I will have a ticket flying with Southwest and my son will be flying in with Delta and flying out with China Air. If I have a valid ticket flying out the same day as he is flying in can we meet up in the airport at any of the terminals during his layover?

     

    At what airport are you planning to meet?

     

    Lax

     

    Yes, you could meet outside the secure area of any terminal. There is a large food court outside security in the International Terminal.

     

    But I couldn't go to the gate to see him off?

     

    No

    We are 4 people traveling from Panama City, Panama with a 2 hours 25 minutes layover.. I'm still looking at the tickets cause i'm not sure if we will be able to make it. Both of our flight are United.

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time for your connection.

    I'm flying from Edmonton, Canada and Lima is my final destination. I have a 1h 15 min layover in Minneapolis. I can pass US security and customs in Canada, so I still wonder if my layover is enough to catch my flight to Atlanta (my second layover). Is it enough? Maybe this is out off topic, but do you know if I have to pass security and customs in Atlanta?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time in Mineapolis - all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. In Atlanta all you have to do is take the Plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart. There us no US Immigration when exiting the country.

    Hi. I will be arriving in JFK Terminal 5 on a JetBlue flight from Barbados. Flight arrives at 8pm. I have a departing flight on Emirates from Terminal 4 at 11pm. Flights are booked on two separate tickets, and I will have checked in online for the Emirates flight. I have one checked bag, and two children. Do you think this is enough time for the transfer? Thanks in advance for your help.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time assuming your flight from Barbados is on-time.

    Hi, I am flying from PSP-DFW-CUN. My layover in DFW is 40 minutes. Do I have to collect by checked baggage at DFW then re-check it to go to CUN or do I just walk from terminal to terminal?

     

    You do not have to collect your bags in Dallas on your way to cancun. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Terminal D.

    I am traveling from Amsterdam to San Diego, connecting flight would be at JFK. I will reach at terminal 4 and next flight is from terminal 1. I will have 1.5 hours. Is this time enough for immigration, re-checking the bags, and transfer time to terminal 4 to 1. Will I have to take the train and go through security check-in again.

     

    No flights from JFK to San Diego leave from Terminal 1. Perhaps you have your terminals reversed? Yes, if you have to change terminals you have to take the train and go through security again. As an International Arrival connection you will have to go through security in JFK even if your flights are in the same terminal.

     

    Sorry, You are right, I need to transfer from terminal 4 to Terminal 2 (Delta). Would 1.5 hours be enough to go through everything

     

    Yes, 1.5 hours is enough time if everything goes smoothly. Also note that most Delta flights leave from Terminal 4, although some do leave from Terminal 2.

     

  • Terminal B to C in 1:30?

    I have a domestic flight on the 12th of June to EWR arriving at 8:56pm in Terminal C, and I have a flight (different airline, so must recheck baggage) leaving from Terminal B at 10:30 pm. Do you think I should be able to make it if the first flight is on time, I've checked in online already, and I know the airport well?

     

    It would be barely possible if the first flight is on-time. But I wouldn't bet on an evening flight at EWR in the summer arriving on-time.

    Delta flight Thursday pm from Columbus CMH and connecting to Amsterdam AMS with just 60min connection time. Would this be sufficient/do I need to check bags again and immigration?

     

    There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Am coming from Beijing to Detroit on Delta flight. Have 7 hour layover before next Delta leg to Philadelphia. Will I go through customs with my bags in Detroit and then re-check them?

     

    yes, in Detroit you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security.

    If i book an early morning flight from YHZ to JFK and have 50 min. connection time to TPA on Delta. No checked baggage. Is that enough time if flight from YHZ on time? Would be early next Jan.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Halifax. you will likely arrive in Terminal 4. You could depart from Terminal 2 or 4. if you depart from Terminal 2, delta runs a shuttle inside security.

    Hello, I am arriving in Detroit from LA then making an international connection to Toronto all through DELTA. Do I have to claim my baggage in Detroit before my international flight, or will it go through to my final destination if checked through?

     

    No, you do not have to claim your baggage in Detroit. All you have to do in Detroit is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will go through Canadian Immigration and customs when you get to Toronto.
