  • VERY short connection time
    Mar 27, 2015
    0
    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!

     

  • LIN-FCO-NRT 1:10 hr connection

    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

     

  • 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

    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

    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.

    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.

     

  • Alitalia transfers in FCO

    ZAP, you seem like a person with all the info! I am ticketed on AZ from ORD-FCO-IST, does FCO have a self contained international terminal, or will I have to clear Schengen customs, transfer security and then make my way to the IST gate? Also, is there a shuttle/tram on the secure side between T1 and T3? I have 2hr 55min for the transfer so ideally I should be fine time wise. Thanks for all of you help!

    Travelling in May from Springfield, MO to Chicago on American. Arrive at 8:00 am. Leave at 8:40 also on American. Want to be sure it is enough time. Thanks so much in advance...great site!

     

    That should be enough time if the first flight is on-time. All AA gates at O'Hare are connected inside security in Terminal 3.

    Hi, I booked flight tickets with American Airlines, but I have only 1hour30 minutes left between my flight connection. Is that enough time? The first terminal is not precised, but the second one will be Terminal 8. Any answer welcome!

     

    Where are you flying from on the first flight? All American Airlines flights use Terminal 8. Is the first flight a codeshare flight? I can't answer your question without this info.

     

  • Time enough for connection? Lansing-Minneapolis-NY

    I will be flying in from Lansing MI on a plane where I understand all carryon luggage is stowed beneath. Flight arrives at 4:42pm. My flight to NY leaves at 5:37pm. Do I have enough time to get my luggage (which is carryon on to NY flight) and catch flight? I'd like to NOT have to pay to have carryon checked in, as it's small. Thanks!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. The MSP airport is fairly compact.

     

  • Miami-JFK-Manchester 50min connection

    I have a 45 minute connection at New York JFK, arriving from Miami at Terminal 8 at 06.35pm and departing to Manchester, UK at Terminal 8 at 07.20pm. Will I only have to go through immigration, and is this enough time? Flying with American Airlines.

     

    You will not have to go through Immigration or Security. There is no US Immigration when departing the US. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

    Hi I will fly from Nashville to London connection by Dallas (DFW) with 90 minutes time. Is it enough time to connect my next flight to London and also for security and customs???? Thanks in advance.....

     

    That is enough time. You will not have to go through security or customs in DFW. All terminals at DFW are connected inside security by the SkyLink Train and there is no US Customs when leaving the US.

     

  • Flying Delta LAX-JFK-KEF (Reykjavick, Iceland)

    Both flights on Delta. Our baggage will be checked through to Reyjkavic....how long a layover will be needed at JFK?

     

    45 minutes should be plenty. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 4.

     

  • SJC - DEN - RAP = 33 minute changeover enough time w/ checked baggage?

    I am looking to take the following flights. I will have checked baggage. Do you think this will be enough time for me and my bag to make the flight? United – Flight 815 (economy) 2h 37m Mon, 25 May SJC San Jose, CA, United States Mon, 25 May DEN Denver, CO, United States Airbus A319 (Narrow-body Jet) | 2h 37m | 9+ seats remain Change planes DEN Denver, CO, United States 0h 33m United – Flight 5230 (economy) Operated by Skywest DBA United Express 1h 12m Mon, 25 May DEN Denver, CO, United States Mon, 25 May RAP Rapid City, SD, United States Canadair Regional Jet 700 (Regional Jet) | 1h 12m | 9+ seats remain

     

    Sorry the times didnt come through! 17.48 SJC - 21.25 DEN 21.58 DEN - 23.10 RAP Thanks!

     

    Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time but obviously leaves no time to spare if it's late and it is obviously the last flight of the day to Rapid City.

    Hi, we are flying from LHR to MCO with a 1hr 35min connection time in MIA (arrive at MIA at 7:45pm). I know that we have to clear immigration and customs and then re-check our bags and clear security again....is this enough time??

     

    That is likely barely enough time.
