    Arriving on China Airlines at 12:45 pm Terminal B and departing on SW at 2:25 pm. Only doing carry on luggage. Is this enough time?

     

  • Will my baggage be put on to my connecting flight for me?

    Next year I will be travelling alone to from London Heathrow UK to Bogota, Colombia via JFK New York. I am wondering whether my checked baggage will automatically be put on to my connecting flight to Bogota at JFK, or will I have to go through baggage reclaim and check it in again myself? I am keen to find out for definite before I go as this will be my first experience of a connecting flight! Many thanks!

     

    If buying your 2 flights on one ticket, your bags will automatically be transferred to your connecting flight after you went through passport check, picked up your bags & went through customs clearance, then re-checked in your bags at JFK. Otherwise find out from your first airline if they will transfer to your second flight. (if not you would need to take your bags to the connecting terminal to check it in there). I suggest you open www.ifly.com/jfk, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text, for all the information you will need about JFK; if interested in Bogota Airport, open www.ifly.com/bog.

     

  • ORD connection T5-T1

    Hi, I am planning to make a trip to San Francisco, but this is my first trip with a flight connection. I am flying with United from Brussels to Chicago (ORD) and then from Chicago (ORD) to San Francisco (SFO). I only have approximately 2 hours to get to my next flight. What is the procedure for a connecting flight in Chicago? Do I have to claim my baggage and then recheck-in? I also read that I'll arrive a terminal 5 and I'll depart at terminal 1. Thank you for reading this!

     

    At ORD you arrive at Terminal 5 (T5) where you need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs & re-check-in bags where indicated (bags will then be transferred to T1 flight) - thereafter, proceed one level up to the ATS transit level & take the ATS train, running every few mins, to T1, where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate. T1 has Concourses B & C (with B & C gates) - both used by United.

    i will have an american airlines flight coming in from orlando and have to change to an american airlines flight heading for london heathrow, time for changing is only 65 minutes. is that doable? best regards woledi

     

    American uses Terminal 3 (T3) with Concourses/ gates G, H, K & L; as well as and T5 with Concourse/gates M (tickets could read T3-G, T5-M). While the ATS train runs between all terminal at their pre-security areas (requiring security check at connecting terminal), you may walk between the concourses of Terminal 3. Either way you have enough time for transfer.

    I'm flying from Berlin to ORD on Airberlin. How much time will I need to get to an AA flight to DFW? I am a US citizen with Global entry and TSA precheck. I did not purchase my tickets together but did get them thru AA.

     

    90 minutes bare minimum, 2 hours to be safe.

    Well, as the title states, I am planning to travel to USA on January For my outbound flight back to Europe, I am thinking about two flights SFCO --> JFK JFK --> MAD The connection in JFK is 2 hours Assuming no delays, should this be enough? Both are American Airlines flights, both deparing/landing Terminal 8 I dont need to clear any customs on outbound flights correct? Thanks a lot

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Hi. I am flying in from Spokane by Alaska Airlines to SEA. I am connecting to a Air Canada fliflght to Vancouver. The lay over time is 1hr 40mins. Is this enough time to collect baggage, clear security and check in to Air Canada?The flights were bought separately. I am a UK citizen. Not sure if that will make any difference

     

    That should be enough time. Citizenship doesn't matter. You go through Canadian immigration in Vancouver.

    My daughter is flying with a connecting flight in PHL. She arrives at Gate A3 and has to go to F38 for her connecting flight and she has an hour to do that. What will be the fastest way of getting to her connecting gate?

     

    US Airways has a shuttle bus directly from terminal A to terminal F.

    Hi. I will be traveling in United Airlines from London to Newark flight UA45 and then get a connection in 85 mins to Panama flight- i think i must change terminals also. who knows more about this.

     

    That is a difficult but maybe possible connection. Is that the earliest possible flight from London?
