  • Best way to go from terminal A to B
    May 27, 2015
    3
    Hi, my son comes in on an American flight at 9:03 and has a departing international flight out of terminal B on a different airline. What is the quickest way for him to accomplish this? Can you confirm that he has to claim his luggage and go through security again.

     

    What airport? Were his tickets purchased separately or together? What is the second airline?

     

    Flying from Chicago to Newark on AA arriving 9:03. Outbound flight is Et Al and leaves at 1:30 and no they were not purchased together.

     

    Yes, he will have to claim his bags in Terminal A, then take them on the AIrTrain to Terminal B and check them at the El Al check-in counter. He should have enough time.

    I'm flying in from Chicago on American Airlines and then transfering to German wings to Berlin. I have an hour and fifteen minutes is this enough time? Thanks

     

    Were your tickets purchased together or separately?

     

    Separately

     

    If you have checked bags I think you'll have a hard time transferring them in-time. if you don't have checked bags and check in for your Germanwings flight online before you leave the US, I think you can make it if you AA flight is on-time.

    I am arriving on Delta Airlines (Term 5?) and attempting to meet my daughter arriving on EuroAir later in the day (I have about 5 hours to kill) can I go to her arrival termial to meet her? I am assuming each terminal has its own baggage claim so I will need to get my bag then meet her.

     

    What airport is this at? EuroAir ceased operations 6 years ago - please double check her reservation and I can help you more.

     

  • question on getting drop off at terminal F

    can I just get drop off in front of terminal f and walk in for flight leaving terminal f and os course head to screening are or do I have to ge by e/f parking garage via sky walkway or I know I could go terminal c and take shuttle to f

     

    F doesn't have its own check in/security area. you have to go through E.

     

    So can I get drop off at terminal E with out using the skywalk or shuttle I thought there was a security area at terminal F entrance

     

    Sorry, you're right, Terminal F does have a security checkpoint, but it is currently under construction. Terminal F does not currently have its own baggage claim, which confused me. You can go to E or F.

     

    So your saying I can be dropped off and enter terminal E or f and go thru security This construction stuff is just confusing me Trying to find the easiest way to be dropped off at airport and leave on my flight from Terminal F Thanks for your help

     

  • MBJ - CLT - MSP - short layover in Charlotte

    Hi, I have just over an hour layover between when my flight from Montego bay arrives in Charlotte, and when my next flight departs for Minneapolis. Both are on US Airways, but I'm worried that we won't have enough time to get through customs and then security, even if we just carry on our luggage. (no checked bags). Will we make it if everything is on time?

     

    Correct, the minimum time for that connection is 90 minutes and if you only have 60 that's pretty much impossible with checked bags. Without checked bags you might be able to make it. However, you should be able to contact your travel agent or US Airways to get rebooked because that is a clearly illegal connection.

     

  • Enough time to get from Bradley Terminal to Terminal 1

    Hi, I have a flight scheduled to land from London at 6:30pm and then have another flight with Southwest at 8:10 pm. What's the fastest way I could get to terminal one? I'll have two large suitcases with me.

     

    The fastest way is to walk. You will have to bring your bags with you and wait in line to check them with Southwest and then go through security in T1. You will need to be in Terminal 1 by 7:25. That leaves you just 55 minutes to get off the plane, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and walk to Terminal 1 (which takes about 10-15 minutes). I wouldn't say that this connection is impossible, but it will be extremely difficult.

     

  • Enough time for connection- Terminal 7?

    My son arrives at LAX from LHR at 1.45p.m June 16, his connecting flight to SEA leaves at 3.28p.m. He is flying with United Airlines, and United Express for the domestic leg. He is flying on an e-ticket, so I think his arrival and departure will be at Terminal 7-am I correct? Will he have time to clear immigration and customs,recheck his bag etc in less than two hours? Thanks in advance for any advice!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, he should arrive and go through Immigration in Terminal 7 and will depart from Terminal 7 or 8 (really just two sides of the same terminal).

     

  • 54 minute layover with Spirit

    My flight would be landing at FLL from DFW at 9:46 AM and departing at 10:40, both flights on Spirit. That just seems really tight, but it is possible seeing as they're in the same terminal?

     

    Yes, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. It's very doable if your flight from DFW is on-time.

    Traveling on a Wednesday arrival in SFO from SQ Air from SIN/Seoul. LANDING SQ at 12:30 PM Must make a connection to a Midwest flight that leaves at 3:15 PM -- is this possible with checked bags that we must collect put through security and recheck?

     

    Midwest airlines has been out of business since 2009. What airline are you flying? Were your tickets purchased together or separately?

    Our 15 year old son will fly from Frankfurt with Lufthansa to San Antonio in August with United Airlines to spend a school year as an exchange student there. Will 2h 45 minutes be enough for him to go through passport control, recheck his baggage and change terminals?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

     

  • custom clearance

    I am arriving from Calgari to Chicago at 1639 hrs by UA (operated by Skywest) and have a connecting flight to Washington DCA at 1800 hrs by UA. Is the connecting time enough? Do i have to do custom clearance at Chicago?

     

    Assuming you are coming from Calgary, Alberta, Canada (not Caligari, Italy), you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Calgary. ALl you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time. You may arrive in Terminal 1 or 2. You will depart from Terminal 1. 1 and 2 are connected inside security by a walkway.

    I have a flight to DFW. I have no clue how to get to my gate. People have told me I have to ride something. Is that true? Or can I just walk to my gate?

     

    Where are you flying from? What airport are you talking about? DFW or some other airport? What airline are you flying? You didn't really provide enough information to answer this question.

    Flying from White Plains Airport to TLV, via Philadelphia Airport, all booked on one ticket with US Air. Is 2 hours layover enough time? WIll I have to claim my luggage and recheck it? Will I have to go through security a second time?

     

    All you have to do in Philadelphia is take the shuttle bus from Terminal F where you will arrive to Terminal A where you will depart. It runs inside security. You do not have to do anything with your baggage. You should have plenty of time.

     

  • Terminal 1 Gate Z50 to Gate C13 connection
    May 27, 2015

    It appears that Gate Z50 and Gate C13 are in Terminal 1 as per the map. How can I change gates from Z50 to C13? Do I have to take Skyline train? Would 2 hour layover be enough? Thanks!

     

    Just follow the signs is the best word of advice for FRA. 2 hours should be enough time.

     

  • (KLM): LAX to AMS to BCN, will we make it?
    May 27, 2015

    Booked online with KLM, LAX to Barcelona with a 65 minute transfer in AMS. Called KLM and they said no problem making it in time as we'll clear Customs in Barcelona. Is this true? If not should we re-book? This will be from 9-10:05 am Sunday.

     

    You will clear CUSTOMS in Barcelona, but you will go through Schengen Passport Control in Amsterdam. However, you should have plenty of time as Amsterdam is built to handle tight connections like this.

     

    Thanks for the quick reply. From the flight history it looks like it's consistently on schedule so we'll hope for the best.
