  • MCO to YYC in 35 minutes with 3 kids 6 and under?
    Jan 27, 2015
    0
    We're Canadians on the way home from MCO to YYC on Apr. 8 via UA1026 and UA1279 but only have a 35 minute connection in IAH. Anyone know if we're likely to need to change terminals for that connection, and what the likelihood would be of making it in time, with a pregnant wife and 3 kids, 6 and under? Thanks for the advice!

     

  • Terminal 1 to TBIT
    Jan 26, 2015

    I am arriving at 8.10AM on Southwest Airlines at Terminal 1, I have one checked bag and one carry on. My flight for Hong Kong leaves at 9.40AM from TBIT (Tom Brady International), will I make the check-in and flight? What's the fastest way to get between the two terminals? Any help would be greatly appreciated, trying to avoid getting a flight the day before.

     

    That will be difficult. You might not get your bags until 8:30 or so even if your flight is on-time. Then it's 5 to 10 minutes on the shuttle or walking to the International Terminal. The bag cutoff for most international flights is one hour so everything really needs to go perfectly in order for you to make this connection. I would fly in the night before.

    I am flying to DFW from Argentina and connecting a flight to SFO. My flight arrives in terminal D and I have to re-check my luggage. My Connection flight takes from terminal A. Can I do the check and go through security in terminal D and then took the Skyline to Terminal A or I need to check in and go through security in terminal A? if that so How can I get to Terminal A before passing security?

     

    Yes, you can go through security in D and then take the Skylink train to A.

     

  • SFO to JFK to CDG

    We are flying SFO to JFK arriving 5:27pm and then on a separate ticket (tour group) connecting to Air France for a 7:10pm flight. Do we need to go through security twice? Enough time? - if not, and we changed our flight to arrive at JFK 3:39pm - enough time? No checked luggage - just one carry on each. Thank you.

     

    You will go through security once in SFO and again in JFK since you will have to exit the secure area, take the AirTrain to T1, get your boarding passes (group tickets usually can't check in online) and then go through security. I think you will barely have enough time since you aren't plan on bringing checked bags. However, if you can move to the earlier flight I would do that. Delays at JFK are fairly common.

     

    This is a great help. Thanks very much.

    Hi, what would be the fastest way to get from t7 to terminal B flight details for this evening .... UA 822V 26JAN IADLAX HK1 454P 750P * NZ 5B 26JAN LAXAKL HK1 1000P 800A2*

     

    The fastest way is to walk. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes. Your bags should be transferred automatically and you should be issued both boarding passes in Washington DC. You will have to go through security again in the International Terminal.

     

    Thank you very sir!

    Hi i will be traveling from West Palm Beach to Calgary with an hour and eight minute layover and on the return flight a 57 minute layover is this enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. On your way to West Palm Beach you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. All you have to do in both connections is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skytrain connects all terminals inside security.

     

  • Is 2.5hours enough time between connections?

    Hi ! I'm arriving at FLL airport at 5:53pm from Punta Cana. My family and I (party of 3) will have to go through immigration customs, collect our bags and check them in again for the next flight. I have an option of purchasing tickets for a flight that will be leaving at 8:20pm or 9:40pm to New York. Do you think that 2.5 hours will be enough for us to go through customs, collect and check in our bags? Or should I just go with a safer option and purchase a ticket for a flight that leaves at 9:40 pm? Thank you so much for your help! Nikki

     

    You should book the 9:40 flight. The international facilities at FLL can get congested at peak times and there are frequent delays.

     

  • LAX to YUL connecting at YYZ
    Jan 26, 2015

    Hi, I will be traveling with Air Canada from LAX to YUL with a connection in YYZ. 1- Will I have to go through Customs at YYZ? 2- Will I have to go through security again before my connecting flight? 3- Is 1h19 enough time to make my connection?

     

    Yes, in Toronto you will go through Canadian Immigration, pick up your bags, go through canadian customs, and drop your bags on the connecting bags belt then go through security. You have enough time, but don't have much time to spare in case your flight to Toronto is delayed. However, Air Canada has nearly constant flights from Toronto to Montreal so I'm sure you can be rebooked if you miss your connection.

    No, you can take the TerminaLink train inside security from Terminal B to Terminal D. You have plenty of time.

    We have an incoming Delta flight from Dulles with 52 minutes to make a connection to Indy also on Delta. Is that enough time to make the connection?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

    We have an hour between arrival from DC on flight 670 and departure to Indy on 597. Is that enough time to make the connection

     

    What airline are you flying? If both flights are on United or Both flights are on American that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Having never flown through Dulles airport will 1 hr 40 mins be enough time to transfer - flight arriving from Dublin flying to Nashville (I clear immigration in Dublin) tks

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. because of pre-clearance, if you purchased tickets together your bags will be transferred automatically and you only have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates are connected inside security.

     

  • SMF to LAX connection to CDG
    Jan 26, 2015

    This is my first International trip. Any advice would be VERY much appreciated!!! In mid-Feb, I check in at SMF to board Skywest DBA Delta Connection to LAX, have a 1h 35m layover at LAX, then board Air France to CDG. 1.) Is a 1.5 hour layover enough time to make the Air France flight at LAX? 2.) How can I confirm the Terminal AIr France is at - Terminal 2 or the International Terminal? 3.) Do I exit the security area of Delta, and go through security again for Air France? 4.) Is it best to walk/run to the Air France terminal, or take the shuttle bus? Again, thank you so much for this amazing forum and any assistance!

     

    Air France uses the International Terminal. Upon arrival in Terminal 5, you will exit the terminal and walk to your left. The second building you come to will be the international terminal. You should have been issued both boarding passes in Sacramento. it is fastest to walk between terminals. You will have to go through security again in the International Terminal. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

    THANK YOU SO MUCH for taking the time to answer my questions!

    Delta just changed my flight times. I now arrive STL to DTW on Delta 5743 and depart for Rome Delta flight 236 with a 51 minute connection. Is this possible and will my luggage make it?

     

    Yes, that is still possible as all you have to do in Detroit is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • Southwest Terminal to Air New Zealand Terminal

    Arriving LAX on Southwest at 3:35 PM and departing Air New Zealand 7:45 PM; will that be enough time to collect luggage and re-check in; and what is the quickest way to get from Southwest Luggage to Air New Zealand check in. Thanks for the help.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. The quickest method to get from T1 to the International terminal is to walk. You will just exit T1 and walk to the right and keep going until you run into the big modern building at the end of the U.
