  • 12 hours in houston

    I am travelling to the UK from ecuador but in my way there i need to stop in Houston for 12 hours. Can i leave the Airport? My ESTA visa is not transit only.

     

    Yes, you can leave the airport. When you go through US Immigration and Customs you will be outside security and it's not like there's anybody guarding the doors. However, beware that there's no public transit route into the city and traffic in Houston can be quite bad.

     

  • International to Domestic Terminal BEFORE security

    Hi. My boyfriends leave Atlanta for International destination 30 minutes before me. And I leave Atlanta for domestic destination. My question is : can I go with him to international terminal, stay with him for check in luggage etc till security check and then reach domestic terminal easily for my check in ? Or if we check in at our own terminal then is it doable to meet in the concourseS ? Is the sky train easy to find and use ? Thanks

     

    You don't have enough time to go to the International Terminal. However it is possible that after you check in you can meet him in the E/F concourse. The Plane Train is easy to find as it is the ONLY way to get between concourses. It runs underground.

    Will be arriving from ATL via Delta 72 at 0820 and transferring to KLM 1779 departing 1045 to HAM. Do I have to collect my bags at AMS? What pier will KLM depart from?

     

    No, you do not have to collect your bags. You will go through Schengen Immigration at the head of Pier D, where your flight to HAM will depart.

  • Flying from PBI to JFK terminal 1
    Aug 23, 2014

    I am considering a flight with Jet Blue from PBI to JFK. Arriving in JFK at 4:52 pm terminal 5 I believe. My overnight flight to Manchester leaves at 7:05 pm with Air France. Is the international flight leaving from Terminal 1 and do I have enough time in between for baggage and check in (does checking in on line for international flight speed anything up). And is the Air Tran my best choice to get between terminals? Any advice greatly appreciated.

     

    Air France does not fly from JFK to Manchester. It is likely operated by Delta. As such it will depart from Terminal 4. The AirTrain is the only way between Terminals. 2 hrs 13 mins is barely enough time for your transfer.

     

    Thank you for your reply. I will look into an earlier flight.

    My son is flying to Brazil (Brasilia) via a connecting flight in ATL. Has one hour to make connection. He's never flown or been in an airport. Will he be able find signage easily to this plane train? I'm just a little nervous! Thanks!

     

    It's very easy to find the plane train as it's the only way between concourses. All the signs will be pointing towards the other concourses. His flight to Brasilia will leave from Concourse E or F>

     

  • Need urgent info: Spirit connection tonight!

    Daughter is flying Spirit from Bogota to Denver. Flight is late, she'll have 80 minutes to make connection. Arriving Gate H6 at 7:23, departing 8:40 Gate H7. Will she go through customs in Ft. Lauderdale or Denver if she checked a bag? Has one personal item as well.

     

    You go through Immigration and customs in FLL. 80 mins should be enough time since everything is in the same terminal.

     

  • YYZ to CDG via KLM and AF (7 hours layover in Amsterdam)

    Hi, I am departing from Canada this Dec 2014 to Amsterdam (7 hours layover) via KLM before heading to Paris via Air France. I would like to visit the city center in Amsterdam. Would my baggage be transferred automatically to the connecting flight to Paris? Do you think 7 hours is sufficient amount of time to visit the city area? Thanks.

     

    You do not have time to do this and you will have trouble getting back through security after doing so. Amsterdam airport has a lot of things to do to occupy yourself.

     

  • 40 mins connection - in from Halifax Canada

    I am going through Newark, coming from Halifax Canada on to LAX with final destination of SJC. Only 40 minutes between flights and I'm wondering if I will make it?

     

    If your first flight is on-time it's possible but it may be tough as you may arrive in Terminal A and depart from Terminal C. There is a shuttle that runs inside security, but it will chew some time.

     

  • Philadelphia- Atlanta- St Lucia

    I am flying to St Lucia from Philadelphia with a connection in Atlanta. I will be arriving in domestic south terminal and leaving out of the international terminal. I have 64 minutes in between flights. Is this enough time? Do I need to re-check my checked bags or will they be transferred through?

     

    You do not have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta. You will actually not arrive in the South Terminal. You will arrive at one of Delta's many midfield concourses T through D and depart from concourse E or F. All Concourses are connected inside security by the Plane Train. You should have enough time.

     

  • 2 hour 45 mins connection time from Terminal 4 to Terminal 1

    Hello, I am booking a flight with Caribbean Airlines arriving from Trinidad at JFK Terminal 4 at 13:05 and then departing from Terminal 1 with Air China to Beijing at 15:50. This only gives me 2 hours 45mins to connect between two international flights and I am not a US citizen. Can you please tell me if this should be enough time? Many thanks!

     

    I think that would be very difficult. You probably need to be checked in for your Air China flight by 14:20 so that leaves only 1:15 to get out of customs and to Terminal 1, assuming the Caribbean flight is on-time, which they often are not.

     

    Bummer! Though thank you very much for your reply! Glad I asked before booking!

     

  • TORONTO TO DUBAI EMIRATES

    hello, will be traveling from Toronto to Dubai connecting through JFK flying to JFK via Air Canada so landing in terminal 7. Will be flying out of terminal 4 with Emirates. Only have 1 hour and 20 minutes between flights. Will this be enough time to connect? Everything is purchased on the same ticket. I have a feeling this is really tight..

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration in Toronto. You will have to get your Emirates boarding pass before you leave Toronto or else you will probably get to T4 after the check-in cutoff. There is no room for any delays or hiccups.

     

  • PSP TO SEA TO AMS

    I will be arriving from PSP with a 3 hr 15 min layover. Will I have to change concourses for my connection to AMS? If so, is there a set concourse for KLM Flights to AMS? I am planning on meeting my daughter for coffee at the airport, is there a way out at the departing concourse for simple re-entry. Would like to advise her which area to go.

     

    KLM does not fly to Seattle, so your flight to Amsterdam is on Delta. It will leave from the S Satellite. There is no simple re-entry, you will have to go to the main terminal, exit security, and then when you're done stand in the same large security line as everyone else. I don't think you'll get more than an hour to spend with your daughter.

     

  • DELTA TO ALITALIA

    Non US citizens arriving with Delta from Haiti at 5:44 PM and leaving to Milan with Alitalia at 8:30 PM. Do you think we have enough time for custom clearance, baggage claim and re-check, terminal change etc? Will we save much time if we travel with hand luggage only? Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. Your bags should be tagged through to Milan in PAP so you will will be able to re-check them in T4 after going through customs rather than having to take them with you on the Airtrain to T1. Hand luggage will save you time, but again, I think you have enogh time evne with checked baggage.

    Hi I am coming in to IAH 13:55 from moscow on singapore airline, then need to transfer to terminal A american airline to DFW at 16:40, is 2 hy 40 min enough for immigration, train to terminal A and re check in?

     

    You will actually arrive in Terminal D. Yes, that should be enough time. The Inter-Terminal train runs underground outside security.
