  • Is 1.5 hours enough time to between flights from Brazil to RDU
    May 21, 2015
    0
    The flight I'm looking at will arrive from Brazil (GRU) on a Saturday at 06:29 AM. I will need to collect my bags, get through customs and catch a flight to RDU at 08:07 AM. The Airline is American - in on a 777 and out on a Embraer ERJ-140.

     

  • Connecting flight DFW to CLT to London Heathrow

    Hi I am flying from Dfw to Charlotte and have a connecting flight to London heathrow. I arrive Charlotte at 21:13 and depart for london at 22:30 is this enough time and do I have to go through security again?

     

    That is plenty of time. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You do not have to go through security.

     

    Thanks for your reply. An easy connection at Clt to look forward too. So long as the weather does not delay flight all will be good.

     

  • SEA to CDG 40 min layover?

    We fly from GEG (Spokane) to SEA and have 39 minutes to get from a SkyWest (booked through Delta) flight to the Delta flight to Paris. Are we going to arrive at the south satellite and catch our departure to paris there, too? Any chance our luggage will make the connection?

     

    Yes, if the first flight is on-time you should be OK. Delta and Delta Connection use gates in A and S. They are connected inside security by an underground train.

    Is 1 hour enough time between Flights. Coming from London (LHR) I will be landing in terminal E and need to get to terminal B in one hour for my connection to El Paso. Is this enough time to go through customs, re-check my bag, and go through security again to get to terminal B?

     

    NO, 1 hour is not sufficient time for an International to Domestic connection in Houston. 90 minutes is the bare minimum. You need to contact United or your Travel agent and get on a later flight to El Paso.

     

  • Enough time?

    Hi, I want to book Delta from Germany to Jamaica with 2.45 hours layover in Atlanta. Am I landing and departing from the same terminal? Do I have enough time for the whole customs, baggage process? Thanks.

     

    Yes, both flights will be in the E and F concourse of the International Terminal. Yes, that should be plenty of time for US Immigration/Customs, baggage claiming/re-checking, and security.

    I am travelling from MIA to LHR with a 35 minute connection time at IAH. I am very concerned with the connection time. Can it be done? and if we miss our flight will United Airlines put us on the next flight for free? We are landing at terminal C and depart at terminal E.

     

    Yes, it is possible but depends on the flight from Miami being on-time. Yes, if you miss it they will put you on the next available flight, but that may not be until the next evening.

     

  • Arriving Air Canada departing Alitalia to Catania, in 1hr 35mins
    May 21, 2015

    Arriving Air Canada departing Alitalia to Catania on separate tickets with checked bags. We have 1hr 35mins between flights, is this enough time? The Air Canad and Alitalia are seprarte tickts so I presume we will have to collect our bags then check in with Alitalia.

     

    It's possible but everything will have to go very smoothly for you to get your bags to the Alitalia desk in T1 before the bag cutoff.

     

    Thanks, we will have to keep our fingers crossed that everything goes in our favour.

    I have a flight arriving into SFO at 10am ona busy Labor Day weekend and my connect departs at 10:45am. I am travelling with an infant so ill be gate checking some items. What is the likelihood I miss my connecting flight? I notice there is only 1 more flight out to my final destination that day and being in an airport for 4 hours is not ideal with an infant

     

    I am flring the same airline on both flights. United

     

    It is possible. All united gates are connected inside security in terminal 3.

    I'm flying back to LAX from HKG through Seattle. I fly Delta to seattle and then fly on Alaska Airlines through to LAX. Will 1hr45min be enough time to make the connecting flight? The flight is booked through one website.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Your bags should be tagged through to LAX, so once you clear customs you can just re-check your bags at the transfer desk, go through security, and take the underground trains to your departure gate.

     

  • Connecting from Delta flight from NYC to Virgin Australia to SYD
    May 21, 2015

    My inbound Delta flight from NYC arrives Terminal 5 8.30 p.m. and have connecting flight to Sydney on Virgin at 10.20 p.m. Looks like I have to get to Terminal 3 to check in then go to Tom Bradley for departure. Is that correct? Doesn't look like I would have enough time. What is fastest way to get from T5 to T3?

     

    Virgin Australia flights don't actually depart from T3, they just have their check-in counters there, which you shouldn't need if your tickets were bought on one reservation. You should be able to proceed directly to the International terminal security checkpoint. You should have enough time assuming your flight from NY is on-time.

     

    I am getting rather confused by this! Have just spoken to Virgin Australia International and they told me that their flights arrive into Tom Bradley but that departures are from Terminal 3. Are you sure your info. is correct and that T3 is only check-in and that I should go to TB? Sorry to query you but advice seems to be conflicting. Thank you.

     

  • VIE-EWR-TPA - baggage check-in at EWR,
    May 21, 2015

    HI, I fly from Vienna via EWR to TPA on monday June 1st. My Lufthansa flight arrives in EWR at 1:45pm and connecting flight is at 5:47pm. I guess need to change terminal from B to C, but I think I should have enough time? As I know, after immigration I need to collect my luggage, go through customs and then I need to check in luggage again. Is it really a new check at a counter (meaning do I need to queue), or is it like in Washington that you just yourself drop your luggage on a belt after clearing customs? And do you have any insider tips for quick passing of immigration? Thanks. Oliver

     

    forgot, my connection flight is with United and I think it is all,on one ticket (at least I only have one e-ticket number)

     

    You should have plenty of time. There is a re-check counter right after you exit customs. Since people are just dropping off their bags that are already tagged, it is usually pretty quick. You will then take the AirTrain from B to C and go through security. Again, 4 hours is a ton of time.

     

    Tx for answer!

  • Connecting flight from Baltimore to LA to India

    Hi, I am taking a SouthWest flight from Baltimore to LA, arriving at 12:05 PM. (probably at Terminal 5-7) I have to board an Etihad Airways flight which departs at 4:45 PM from Terminal B. I will have 4 pieces of baggage. What is the best option to travel to terminal B? Is this sufficient time? Will I have to go through customs at LAX?

     

    Southwest flights into LA use Terminal 1. The best way to get from Terminal 1 to the international terminal is to walk. It takes maybe 15 minutes. You do not go through US Customs when leaving the US. You will have to transfer your bags yourself to the international Terminal. You should have plenty of time.

     

    Your Etihad flight will be flying back over Baltimore to get to Abu Dhabi. Someone seems to have messed up your booking!

    Hi am looking at international flight with united CLT-IAD-FRA transit time is 1h10 minutes with both CLT to IAD and IAD to FRA with United. I am traveling on a foreign passport with 2 checked in baggages, The. 1h 10 minutes seems short to me is this possible? How long it takes to walk from one concourse to other? Do I need to go through Security? Please help

     

    You will not have to go through security in IAD. Both of your flights will likely be on the C/D concourse, which is just one long building. there's a chance you will arrive in A, which is connected to C and D by the aerotrain and mobile lounge, which run frequently and inside security.

     

    Thanks for data, would 1 hour 10 mins be good enough time to reach from A to c or D?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time.
