  • TRANSER TIMES

    Arriving on a connecting flight at Dallas at 1600 terminal B transferring to terminal D to catch flight to London at 16.50 . is 50 mins sufficient time to make this connection.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security and all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Hi, I will land in International Terminal E from London Heathrow at 14:40 with British Airways. We are then catching a United flight at 15:54 to Cancun, is that enough time to connect to this flight? I'm not sure which terminal the Cancun flight will leave from. Many thanks

     

    Your British Airways flight will actually arrive in D. Your Cancun flight will leave from E. That is NOT enough time as you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, get your United boarding passes, and re-check your bags, and go through security. 1 hr 14 mins is totally not enough time to do all that.

     

  • AA flights connections

    Hi, I'll be arriving in Miami from Argentina in an AA flight and 2 1/2 hours later I have another flight to my final destination in Cancun, also with AA. I would probably check a bag in Argentina to get it in Cancun. Will AA let me do that or will I have to pick up my bag and go through the check in again even if I'm flying with the same airline? I understand I might have to pass through custums but Is there a transit area for passengers connecting with the same airline? Would you recommend taking a carry on instead of checking a bag for this trip to Cancun via Miami? Thank you!

     

    Yes, you will have to claim your bag to go through US Customs in Miami, and yes, you will have to go through US Immigration and Customs in Miami. You should have enough time even with a checked bag, but if you do want to save some time, only taking a carry-on will save you some time in your connection.

     

    Thank you!!

     

  • how long of a connection do i need for domestic to domestic

    I will arrive in JFK from AUH on Etihad T4 but will be precleared in AUH and its supposed to be treated as a domestic arrival. Arriving at 4:35 PM, and need to fly on to CLE on the same day. The latest flight i can find seems to be Delta (T2) at 7 PM (need to be there 60 mins before i believe), so will i be able to make the connection? What if my flight is a bit late, will i be able to make it? Basically how much time do i need to allow? Thanks

     

    Yes, you could make that connection because of the pre-clearance in Abu Dhabi. You will likely have your baggage (if you're checking bags) by 5:05 PM, it will take you maybe 10 minutes to get to T2, so you'll be in line to check your bags with Delta at T2 by 5:15 - so your flight can be up to 45 minutes late and you'll still be OK.

     

    thank you!

    I will be arriving from Colorado springs from terminal b and have to catch my next flight in terminal c to Austin teaxs and its 53minutes between lay over. is there going to be enough time to make it to my next flight? is there a shuttle that can take me the terminal c?

     

    That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.

    booking a flight connecting in dtw have 51 min . what is terminal em mean

     

    Terminal EM is the McNamara Terminal, the terminal Delta and their skyteam partners use.

     

    And yes, 51 minutes should be enough time if the first flight is domestic.

     

  • 45 mins connection time domestic to international

    Hi, I am flying into ORD from Knoxville and have 45 mins to get from the plane to make my international connection to London. Both flights are BA, will i be able to make it? Will i need to collect my luggage or clear customs again?

     

    Your first flight will be operated by American and arrive into Terminal 3. If your second flight is truly operated by British Airways (note that BA and American codeshare and some "BA" ORD-LHR flights are operated by AA), then it will be very difficult. You will not have to do anything with your luggage or go through Immigration or customs (you don't do that when leaving the us). However, you will have to exit T3 and take the ATS train to T5 and go through security OR you will have to take the British Airways shuttle bus, which runs inside security but infrequently. Please double check your itinerary to see who is operating your flights.

    Hi, I will be arriving at terminal 5 from Mexico and leaving from Terminal 1 2 hours later. Do you think I will have enough time for immigration and customers? are there shuttle between terminals? thanks

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. The terminals are connected by the ATS Train.

     

  • Arriving from Jamaica Sunday night How long is customs wait?

    I need to know how long we realistically need arriving on a Sunday night from Jamaica, then have to connect to another domestic flight on AA. We are travelling with a baby also...

     

    90 minutes is the minimum connection time and should be OK.

    Hi, I'm considering a flight with Delta from Dublin to New Orleans via JFK. We will have cleared security in Dublin, but have only 1 hour 5 minutes to make the connecting flight to NO. Both are with delta so I was hoping this might be doable? Thanks!!

     

    Yes. it should be doable but doesn't leave much time for delays. You will likely have to take the shuttle bus from T4 to T2 upon arrival.

     

  • Transfer time from terminal 4 to terminal 1

    Would I have enough time to transfer from a Delta flight from Boston arriving at 20.33 to an Air France flight to London departing at 22.30?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. You won't have to do anything with your baggage and both boarding passes should be issued in Boston. You will just have to take the AirTrain to T1 and go through security.

     

    Thanks for you quick response. I should have mentioned that I am a UK citizen and that the flights were booked separately. Does that make a difference?

     

    The citizenship doesn't matter, you don't go through Immigration when leaving the US. However, the flights being booked separately makes a difference - Delta should be able to check your bags through to Air France since they're both in the SkyTeam allowance, but since you bought separate tickets they are not obligated to. If they don't you will have to claim your bags in T2 and then bring your bags with you on the AirTrain to T1 to check with AIr France. It's possible, but leaves very little room for delays.

     

    Will it speed things up if we take cabin luggage only....no waiting for the baggage to be unloaded?

     

    Yes, that will save you quite a bit of time.

     

    Thank you. What a great service

     

  • 35 MINUTES BETWEEN DOMESTIC FLIGHTS WITH AA?
    Sep 1, 2014

    Hi I am looking at a ticket to fly from NYC to John Wayne airport with a stop in Chicago. The time between flights is only 35 minutes...both are AA flights and the route is domestic. Is this enough time to make my second flight and would my bags make it??? or is this a bad idea?

     

    Yes, it's possible but it doesn't leave much time for delays, which are very common when departing NYC airports.

     

  • Dropping at Terminals ONE and FIVE

    I have family that leave tomorrow, Sept. 1 for Ireland, and also my husband is leaving around the same time for L.A. How do I drop him at Terminal One and come back around to drop the other part of my family at Terminal Five? The map isn't clear. Thank you!

     

    Just drive along the departure level. You will come to T1 first, then follow the signs to T5. You will come to it after T3.

    We arrive at Chicago airport at 2:10 PM at terminal 5 and have to be at terminal 3 to catch a flight to Seattle at 3:35 PM. Do we have enough time since we have to go through customs?

     

    1 hr 15 minutes is probably not enough time. What airlines are you flying and where are you coming from?

     

    We are coming from Spain on Iberia Airlines to Chicago and leaving on American Airlines to Seattle

     

    Yes, that is below the International -> Domestic minimum connection time. You can try it (it is possible, especially if your Iberia flight is early) and if you miss it they'll rebook you. or you can call where you bought the ticket from and ask to be rebooked because it's an illegal itinerary.

    I am flying from norfolk, virginia to dallas and the connecting flight to narita. Do i have to retrieve my checked in baggages before i proceed to the departure gate? How do i go from a terminal to another terminal?

     

    No, on the way out of the US you won't have to do anything with your baggage in DFW. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Terminal D. All terminals are connected inside security by the Skylink train.
