    Hi, I am flying into ORD from Knoxville and have 45 mins to get from the plane to make my international connection to London. Both flights are BA, will i be able to make it? Will i need to collect my luggage or clear customs again?

    Hi, I will be arriving at terminal 5 from Mexico and leaving from Terminal 1 2 hours later. Do you think I will have enough time for immigration and customers? are there shuttle between terminals? thanks

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. The terminals are connected by the ATS Train.

     

  • Arriving from Jamaica Sunday night How long is customs wait?

    I need to know how long we realistically need arriving on a Sunday night from Jamaica, then have to connect to another domestic flight on AA. We are travelling with a baby also...

     

    90 minutes is the minimum connection time and should be OK.

    Hi, I'm considering a flight with Delta from Dublin to New Orleans via JFK. We will have cleared security in Dublin, but have only 1 hour 5 minutes to make the connecting flight to NO. Both are with delta so I was hoping this might be doable? Thanks!!

     

    Yes. it should be doable but doesn't leave much time for delays. You will likely have to take the shuttle bus from T4 to T2 upon arrival.

     

  • Transfer time from terminal 4 to terminal 1

    Would I have enough time to transfer from a Delta flight from Boston arriving at 20.33 to an Air France flight to London departing at 22.30?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. You won't have to do anything with your baggage and both boarding passes should be issued in Boston. You will just have to take the AirTrain to T1 and go through security.

     

    Thanks for you quick response. I should have mentioned that I am a UK citizen and that the flights were booked separately. Does that make a difference?

     

  • 35 MINUTES BETWEEN DOMESTIC FLIGHTS WITH AA?
    Sep 1, 2014

    Hi I am looking at a ticket to fly from NYC to John Wayne airport with a stop in Chicago. The time between flights is only 35 minutes...both are AA flights and the route is domestic. Is this enough time to make my second flight and would my bags make it??? or is this a bad idea?

     

    Yes, it's possible but it doesn't leave much time for delays, which are very common when departing NYC airports.

     

  • Dropping at Terminals ONE and FIVE

    I have family that leave tomorrow, Sept. 1 for Ireland, and also my husband is leaving around the same time for L.A. How do I drop him at Terminal One and come back around to drop the other part of my family at Terminal Five? The map isn't clear. Thank you!

     

    Just drive along the departure level. You will come to T1 first, then follow the signs to T5. You will come to it after T3.

    We arrive at Chicago airport at 2:10 PM at terminal 5 and have to be at terminal 3 to catch a flight to Seattle at 3:35 PM. Do we have enough time since we have to go through customs?

     

    1 hr 15 minutes is probably not enough time. What airlines are you flying and where are you coming from?

     

    We are coming from Spain on Iberia Airlines to Chicago and leaving on American Airlines to Seattle

     

    Yes, that is below the International -> Domestic minimum connection time. You can try it (it is possible, especially if your Iberia flight is early) and if you miss it they'll rebook you. or you can call where you bought the ticket from and ask to be rebooked because it's an illegal itinerary.

    I am flying from norfolk, virginia to dallas and the connecting flight to narita. Do i have to retrieve my checked in baggages before i proceed to the departure gate? How do i go from a terminal to another terminal?

     

    No, on the way out of the US you won't have to do anything with your baggage in DFW. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Terminal D. All terminals are connected inside security by the Skylink train.

     

  • Terminal D to Terminal A?

    I am travelling into Houston Terminal D (BA) which lands at 14:30 from LHR. I'm considering getting a connecting flight from Terminal A, which would leave at 16:45. I've read about long queues at immigration - I am an American but am travelling with a non-American, so am aware of long waits. I'm guessing it's incredibly unlikely that we'd make this connecting flight? How long does it take to travel to Terminal A? Should we be anticipating 2h waits at customs? Thanks!

     

    I would not expect 2 hour waits at immigration. However, since you are planning on booking a separate ticket, you may have to transfer the bags from Terminal A yourself and you will have to take the Inter-Terminal Train which is much slower than the TerminaLink train. I would leave 3 hours for your transfer.

    How long to walk to TB to TE ? is easy to find the way walk or any shuttle or Bus will take me to TE ? because I don't want to miss the fly to Houston.and give me some direction Please.

     

    You follow the signs to C, then follow the signs to E. Also airport shuttle bus routes 11 and 55 connect all terminals.

     

  • I am coming into IAD from Roanoke to connect to Turkish Airlines IST
    Aug 30, 2014

    Is 2hrs 54 mins enough connection time ?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. You will arrive in concourse A and depart from concourse B, which are connected directly. If you purchased your tickets together your bags will be checked through to IST in Roanoke and you won't have to do anything with your bags at IAD.

     

    Many thanks for speedy reply. I know how long it took arriving from South Africa and was worried that the same would happen on the way out.

     

  • Can u guide me how much time from Terminal B to Terminal E

    I'm arrive on 2:17Pm at Terminal B try to catch southwest airline on 4;15 at terminal E.Please tell me how much time ? Am I ok to get to terminal E on time?

     

    You can only do it easily without checked bags and if you check-in online and print your Southwest boarding pass before you leave. To walk from Terminal B to Terminal E you follow the signs to Terminal C, walk all the way across Terminal C, following the signs to Terminal E.

     

  • Terminal 2 to terminal 5

    Hi. I m travelling from yyz to ahm & i've connecting flight from yyz air canada via chicago to Ahm with air india & i want to got from terminal to terminal 5 & i have only 3 hours...Is it good enough time? & what about my luggage? It will be directly transferred from 1 flight to another flight or am i supposed to carry it from the connecting flight. Do i have enough time to transfer the luggage?

     

    Yes, 3 hours should be plenty of time. If you purchased your tickets together your baggage will be tagged through to India in Toronto. If you purchased your tickets separately you will have to claim them in Terminal 2 upon arrival and take them to T5 to check with Air India. Regardless, 3 hours should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.

     

    That is terminal 2 to terminal 5..is that enough time?? How much time does it take normaly? N i have two fifferent flights in one itenary air canada and air india..did i have to go woth my bagges again?

     

    If you have one itinerary your bags should be checked over to Air India in Toronto so you won't have to do anything with them in Chicago. To get from T2 to T5 via the ATS train shouldn't take more than 20-25 minutes. You will probably have to get your Air India boarding pass from the Air India check-in counter. Then you will go through security and to your departure gate. Again, you should have plenty of time.

     

  • ARN --> EWR--> YYZ

    I'm flying into EWR from Stockholm and connecting to Toronto. I believe my flight arrives in Terminal C and then departs in Terminal C but my question is will my bags be checked through to my final destination of YYZ? I have lots of time but I am travelling with 3 children. Thanks!

     

    If both of your flights were bought together your bags will be checked through. However, you will have to claim them to go through US Customs, then re-check them with your airline after clearing customs.
