  • Guatemala City to Houston , Houston to new york.

    Hi there, We are concerned about our connecting time through Houston airport (flights booked with Bravofly). We fly Guatemala City to Houston George Bush Terminal E with United Airlines on Dec 23rd, landing in Houston at 10:04am. We then have a connecting flight leaving from Terminal B at 11:30am also with United Airlines to New York. We are concerned that 1hr 35 mins isn't enough time, especially going through customs from an international flight and connecting to a domestic flight. Do you think we should be looking at changing our connecting flight? It's a shame that Bravo-fly leave such a short window. Do you know if we remove our bags and recheck them in, or is that done for us? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Daisy

     

    You will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk immediately after customs. Then go through security and to your departure gate. Your flight to New York will likely depart from Terminal C, not B. 1 hr 26 mins is 4 minutes below the minimum connection time for such a connection. However, if you miss your connection United has lots of flights from Houston to New York that you can be rebooked on.

    Aloha, I am traveling from HNL-IAH on United and then connecting to BA to London. Unfortunately we will be at IAH for about 8 hours till our BA flight leaves for London. My question is what terminal will I arrive at in HNL and what terminal will I have to go to for London? Will I have to pick up my luggage at baggage claim and then send it thru again for London? These are two separate tickets one with United & the other with BA. When will I have to go thru customs and/or immigration, I've never done this before.

     

    You will arrive in Terminal E and depart from Terminal D. Since you purchased two separate tickets you will have to claim your baggage with United, wait until the BA ticket counter opens, and re-check it. You do not go through US Immigration when leaving the US.

    In the past, when I've flown through ORD and needed to get from T3 (AA flight) to T5 (BA flight) and already had my boarding pass, I went to a certain spot and was bused directly to T5 and didn't have to go through security again. Is that still possible? If so, where in T3 was it?

     

    Yes, it is still there. It leaves from Gates G17 and K20.

    Flying on Delta JFK/AMS /PRG. From the posts, I am unclear if I need to go through customs with my bags at AMS OR if the bags will be transferred automatically and I will just go through passport/security control twice without my bags. If I need to go through with my bags, there has been reference to using the green hall if I have nothing to declare. What are things that need to be declared? Thanks.

     

    You will go through Schengen Passport Control when you enter the Schengen Pier of the terminal. You do not have to do anything with your baggage in Amsterdam.

     

  • Luggage transfer between T1 and T5

    Hello - We land in Chicago O'Hare Terminal 1 on a United Airlines flight from Phoenix and we need to catch a British Airways flight from Terminal 5 to London. We have close to a 4hr layover. The question is will United Airline accept to check through the luggage from Phoenix all the way to London? And if not, what is the simplest way to get our luggage from Terminal 1 over to Terminal 5 in Chicago? We will have a lot of luggage and it will be impossible for my wife and I to handle on our won on top of two small children. Many thanks!

     

    If you purchased all your tickets together United will transfer your bags to British Airways for you. If you did not, you will have to transfer it yourself via the ATS train. Your options are to either pack what you can carry or to purchase a foldable luggage cart and pack it in your luggage on the way to Chicago, then unpack it and use it in Chicago, then re-pack it or throw it out before checking your bags with BA.

    Arriving T8 - American, where is baggage claim? How best to get me+bag to T1 for international travel?

     

    T8 has a baggage claim on the lower level. The only way from T8 to T1 is via the AirTrain. It is a short ride, maybe 5-10 minutes.

    I am flying in from SLC on Delta-T2 and have approx. 40 min to get to AA in T3. Is that enough time and can I walk?

     

    Yes, it is enough time and yes, you can walk, but it depends on your first flight being on-time and not having any checked baggage or your checked bags being tagged to your final destination. There is a walkway inside security between t2 and T3.

    Hi, I am arriving from Amsterdam and connecting through to Los Angeles and my layover is only 1 hr and 14 min. Will that be enough time?

     

    That is 16 minutes below the minimum connection time. I would call who you booked your tickets through and ask to be put on a later flight to Los Angeles.

     

  • Getting between T7 and T8 in 2h10min with two small children

    Hello, is this possible in 2h10min from T7 to T8, we are traveling with BA from London and connection flight to Cancun MX are manged by AA. And my second question is do we need to collect our checked in bagage in T7 and check in it again in T8? Best regard Mattias

     

    If your bags are tagged to CUN, which they should be, you will claim your bags in T7, go through US customs, then you can re-check your bags at the transfer desk there, then take the AirTrain to T8 and go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time but not much to spare.

    Coming into Gate T have 35 min to get to gate B18. Enough time? and what is the quickest way to get there? Thanks

     

    Yes, that is enough time if your first flight is on-time. The only way between those gates is the Plane Train, which runs inside security between all the concourses.

    Hy, I am arriving at 2:20pm from Frankfurt and I will have to fly to Miami at 5:00pm . 4 Lagguage which i will make lagguage tag in Frankfurt for MIA. Is the connection time for Immigration enough? Anything I need to know? last time Houston immigration took me almost 2 hrs

     

    You will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk. Then go up to the departure level and through security and to your departure gate which will likely be in Terminal C.

    We will be arriving into LAX on United at term 7 or 8 at 8:36am and our flight on Hawaiian Air leaves from Term 2.at 10:00am. Carry-on bags only. Is 1:30 enough time to make the connection between terminals and pass thru TSA again? Thanks.

     

    Yes, but you should make sure to print out your Hawaiian boarding pass ahead of time online. Then just run across the airport to T2 and get through security. If your first flight is on-time you should be OK.
