  • Do I have time to go from C to Z ? What's the minimum time for this...
    Mar 28, 2015
    Can someone help and let me know if I have enough time to go from concourse C to Z if my layover is 1h:25min to my next flight to USA? I'm asking because I'm "caring" a 6 years old with me....which will slow me down a bit... Thanks!


  • Domestic transfer to international
    Mar 27, 2015
    My domestic flight (Southwest airline) arrive in Tacoma airport on 10:30am. My next international flight (Korean airline) departing on 2:15pm. I need to claim the baggage and check the baggage for my international flight. Do I have enough time????


    Yes, that should be enough time. Everything is in the same Terminal building so after you claim your bags you'll just have to find your way to the Korean check-in desk.

    Hi - we are arriving from Turks and Caicos off United Airlines (terminal c) and have an onward flight to london on Virgin from terminal b. The united flight arrives at 6pm and the virgin flights leave at 1030pm but check in closes at 9.15pm. So we have 3 hours to transfer. Do we have to go through USA immigration again and customs only to check in again or is there a transit system? what is the easiest way to get between terminals with kids/bags? many thanks!


    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration and Customs when you arrive in Newark. The terminals are connected via the AirTrain. You should have enough time.


  • Munich Flight to SFO
    Mar 27, 2015
    I will be going from Munich (Luftansa) to SFO and landing in SFO at 7:00pm. My United flight from SFO to Orange County is at 8:30pm. Will I have enough time to clear customs/immigration and make flight??


    That will likely barely be enough time assuming your first flight is on-time.


  • madrid to lax
    Mar 27, 2015
    I am flying in from Madrid to LAX on Iberia, then need to catch a connecting flight to Oakland. Is three hours enough to clear customs and get over to the Southwest terminal? It will be a Friday evening...not sure if that matters.


    Yes, that should be enough time. Note that you will have to transfer your bags yourself to Terminal 1. It's fastest to walk from the International Terminal to T1 vs. taking the bus. Follow the signs for passengers exiting LAX when you clear customs, then exit the International Terminal and walk to your left (against the flow of traffic) until you get to Terminal 1.


  • Enough Connection Time?
    Mar 27, 2015
    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.


  • Connections and Terminal

    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 :)


    Then yes, you should have enough time.


  • Orlando MCO - NY JFK - SIN
    Mar 27, 2015
    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
    Mar 27, 2015
    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.


  • VERY short connection time
    Mar 27, 2015
    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.


    Thank you!


  • LIN-FCO-NRT 1:10 hr connection
    Mar 27, 2015
    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?
    Mar 26, 2015
    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
    Mar 26, 2015
    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
    Mar 26, 2015
    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.


  • flying in from toronto, going to mexico city
    Mar 26, 2015
    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.
