  • YQR to MSP to PHL = 87mins to clear customs?
    May 4, 2015
    Hi on June 20th the only way to get from YQR to PHL is with a tight connection in MSP. Leave YQR & land MSP @ 8:49am then depart to PHL @ 10:16am. Is this enough time? Will have check bag


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will probably be the only international arrival at that time of the morning in MSP so immigration and customs should be a breeze.

    Hi, Is 45 minutes enough time to connect from C to B terminal? I am flying in from Newark and connecting to Leon, Mexico with 45 minutes between flights. Thanks.


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


  • Sanfrancisco to newark and connecting flight to mumbai
    May 4, 2015
    Hi I am travelling from Sanfrancisco to Newark (reaching Newark at 3:00pm) and have connecting AirIndia flight to Mumbai (departure from Newark at 4:20) will I be able to make it? i have to checkin the luggage and get AirIndia boarding pass also


    That will be very difficult. You will have to be at the Air India desk by 3:20. That means assuming the flight is on-time that leaves you only 20 minutes to get off the plane, to baggage claim, get your bag, and take the AirTrain to Terminal B. I would try to get an earlier flight to Newark.


  • Connecting flight - checked bag IAD-EWR-FRA
    May 4, 2015
    Hi, I'm traveling from Washington Dulles with a 45 minute layover in Newark with a final destination of Frankfurt Germany. Do you think my checked bag will make it?


    If your first flight is on-time. Yes, your bag should make it.


  • Is 35 minutes for a layover pushing it too close?
    May 4, 2015
    Flying GSO - LGA - YUL (Greensboro - New York - Montreal) and have only a 35 minute layover in LGA. Is this cutting it too close even if I'm flying Delta on both flights.


    It's possible if the first flight is on-time, but it depends on the first flight being on-time and delays at LGA in the summer are unfortunately very common.


    How about in November?


    November is one of the better months.


  • RDU - DTW - YUL, 53min layover enough time flying Delta on both?
    May 4, 2015
    Is 53 minutes enough time for a layover in Detroit? Flying Delta on both flights


    Yes, that should be enough time. All Delta gates are in the McNamara terminal and connected inside security.


  • Panama City - Miami (1.5 hrs) - Chicago
    May 4, 2015
    Hi all, I'm planning on booking a flight with AA from Panama City to Chicago. There is a 1.5 hr stopover in Miami, I'm not sure if I'll have to go through security / or take off my bag and put it on again etc, could anyone let me know the procedure and if this is enough time? (I'm a UK citizen if that makes a difference).


    Yes, you will arrive in Miami, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. 1.5 hours is barely enough time assuming everything goes smoothly.


  • Enough time?
    May 4, 2015
    Arriving at LAX at 6:10 AM from Delta (HNL) and connecting to Southwest at 8:30 AM. Is 2 hours enough time to retrieve bags and recheck at Southwest? (There are 6 in our group with children.)


    That is barely enough time assuming the first flight is on-time. It will take about 20 minutes to walk from T5 to T1 with your baggage. Check in online for your Southwest flight before leaving Hawaii.


    Thank you. If it were you, would you pick a later flight, even if it meant being in the airport for 8 hours - with a 2 year old - or try to make this? The next flight available wouldn't leave until 2 or 3 pm.


    I would probably stick with what you have. If you miss your flight Southwest is usually pretty accommodating with putting people on later flights, although a group of 6 may be harder to rebook.


  • How to cross terminals
    May 4, 2015
    Depart from aberdeen airport on hop regional flight...... Which terminal do I arrive at? My connecting delta flight departs at 10.40 from terminal 2e..... How do I get to terminal 2e. Many thanks


    HOP! flights from Aberdeen also arrive in Terminal 2E


    What hall do hop regional flights arrive at on terminal 2e and what hall do delta flights depart from and will I need to use a shuttle ? Thanks


    Your HOP flight will likely arrive in the K gates - most short haul non-schengen flights arrive there. Delta flights can use all three halls and it can change on a daily basis where their flights leave from. However, all 2E gates are connected inside security by the CDGVAL Line 2.


  • American Airlines
    May 4, 2015
    I'm arriving from Dallas on American at 11:44am and have a Aeromexico flight to La Paz at 3:05. Which terminal do I come into and can I pick up all my luggage and re-check including golf clubs?


    Where are you flying from on American. American/American Eagle use terminals A, B, C, and D. You will depart on Aeromexico from Terminal D.


    Coming in from DFW.


    Oh, sorry, I thought you were connecting AT DFW. Where are you connecting?


    DFW to Mexico City....Mexico City to LaPaz. I was inquiring about the transfer from American Airlines to Aeromexico at Mexico City airport.


    OK, you will arrive in Mexico City in Terminal 1 and depart from Terminal 2. There is a train between the two terminals. You will need to keep and show your American Airlines boarding pass to board the train. You will have to bring your luggage with you on the train.


    So I can go out and get my luggage and then board the train and then check in again at Terminal 2? How long will all that take?


    It will probably take about 90 minutes.


  • London > PHL then PHL > CHS
    May 4, 2015
    I arrive from London at 2pm on Delta, go through customs, then have to fly to CHS on American/Usairways. at 3:40pm. Is this going to work as far as time goes?


    Did you purchase separate tickets or did you purchase your tickets together? If separately I don't think you will get through immigration and to your bags and to customs in-time to re-check them with US Airways. It's possible if your flight arrives early and everything goes very smoothly, but if anything goes wrong or there is a delay you won't make it.


  • Connecting from domestic flight to international
    May 4, 2015
    We have a 45-min layover between our inbound domestic flight and our outbound international flight (Europe). Is this feasible?


    Where are you connecting? What airlines? were your tickets purchased together or separately?


    Single ticket Halifax-Montreal-Athens on Lufthansa/Air Canada.


    Yes, that should be doable - it just doesn't leave much time to spare if your flight from Halifax is delayed.


  • Change terminal and Security Control
    May 4, 2015
    I have flght tickets from domestic fligh to Europe where I have to change from terminal 8 to 7 at JFK. I know that there is an airtrain. How long does it takes? Do I have to pass again the Security Control by TSA?. Thank


    The Airtrain will take no more than 10-15 minutes. Yes, you will have to go through security again in T7.


  • international connection
    May 4, 2015
    Hi, I am travelling from Paris to Milwaukee the 11th of May, with a 1h45 layover in Minneapolis. The first flight is performed by AirFrance (AF 0694) and the second one is performed by Delta AirLine (AF8732). Will I have enough time to get to my next flight ? Is it likely to have a lot of waiting at US immigration ? And will I have to claim my bags in Minneapolis and re-check them for the flight to Milwaukee ? If I need to re-check my bags, is it easy to find the place where I must leave the bags ? Thanks.


    1 hr 45 minutes should be enough time. Yes, in Minneapolis you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk that will be immediately after customs.


  • London to Atlanta on VS, then on to MSY on DL
    May 4, 2015
    Hi, I'm travelling from London to Atlanta on Virgin Atlantic and have 1 hour 55 minutes to connect to a Delta flight from ATL to New Orleans. The flights are on separate bookings. I will need to clear immigration and am hoping to travel with cabin baggage only. Do you think this leaves me enough time? I will check in online for both flights.


    Yes, without checked bags this is doable, as after customs you can go through security and directly to your departure gate on the Plane Train.
