  • Arriving when inter terminal train, is closed need to get to marriott
    Aug 20, 2014

    Hi, I'm arriving at terminal E at 12.45am - how can I get to the marriott??

     

    You can walk through the corridors where the Inter-Terminal Train runs.

    I will be flying US Air from Phoenix to Manchester UK with a plane change in Philadelphia. Arriving from PHX at gate C30 and departing from gate A18 and I have one hour if my flight is ontime. Do I need to run???

     

    No, a brisk walk should suffice. All you have to do is go from gate to gate.

     

  • Connecting through IAD

    I'm flying via Saudia Airlines from Riyadh to IAD, then catching a connecting flight to Detroit via Delta Airlines. I booked the ticket for the entire flight through Saudia Airlines. Do I have to go through customs and claim my baggage in IAD before connecting to Detroit?

     

    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check your bags in IAD, then you will go through security and take the Aerotrain to your departure gate on Concourse B.

    My flight arrives at ORD from LHR to terminal 5 at 15:15. My connecting flight is again at 17:15 in terminal 1. Do I need to claim my bag and re-checkin again. Is 2hrs is enough to change the terminal

     

    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bag, go through US Customs, then re-check your bag immediately after with United, then take the ATS train to Terminal 1 or 2 and go through security and to your gate. Check the monitors - if your departing gate to Peoria starts with E or F, it's faster to ride the ATS to T2 rather than T1. Yes, 2 hours should be enough time if your flight from London is on-time.

     

    What about coming back is it the same way do I need to do a check in again at Chicago airport or it will be directly sent to London from peoria.

     

    On the way back you will only have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Chicago, no immigration and nothing with your baggage. Also, your flight TO London (if on United) will depart from Terminal 1.

     

  • From terminal C to B

    Will arrive from Nassau at terminal C and depart to Stockholm from terminal B. I have 1,5 hours, is this enough and what are the procedures with luggage and customs?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Nassau so you won't have to do anything with your baggage or go through Immigration in EWR. All you have to do is take United's shuttle bus from Terminal C to Terminal B.

     

  • 85 mins connection

    I would reach ORD around 7.20 pm in Terminal 1 (United Airlines) and my International flight is at 8.45 pm in Terminal 5 (Qatar Airlines). Will i able to transit during this time , including security check - i dont have check-in baggage.

     

    Actually, Qatar Airlines departs from Terminal 3, concourse L. You can actually walk all the way from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3 inside security. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time. However, if you don't already have your Qatar Airways boarding pass you may have to exit security to get it.

     

    Thank you, i am planning to take the print of Boarding pass - do i still need to go thru the Security check again in Terminal 3. After speaking with few people they were confusing me and i had decided to take earlier flight from Denver to Chicago. If 85 minutes is comfortable to get into Qatar Airways - i ll stick onto my original plan (ofcourse i ll check if first flight is on-time). Please advise. Thank you.

     

    If you have your Qatar Airways boarding pass you won't have to go through security again. You can just walk from T1 to T3 inside security. It's maybe a 15-20 minute walk.

     

  • only 45 minute connection

    flying from Halifax, Nova Scotia,canada to orlando. Flights were not great, we only have 45 minutes to connect in Boston. We fly Air Canada Jazz from Halifax to Boston, then have 45 minutes to catch a United flight from Boston to Newark. Will this be enough time? Do we have to go through customs? Do we have to change terminals.

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Halifax. Both Air Canada and United use Terminal B. However, Air Canada uses a small annex of Terminal B that is not connected to the rest of the terminal Inside security. So you will have to go through security. You should have enough time if your flight is on-time but you'll be in trouble if you're delayed.

    Hi , I am connecting in IAH with a lay over of 2 hr 21 mins. I'm flying from Vancouver , B.C. and on to Peru aboard United ,both flights. Is this sufficient time to change planes?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Customs and Immigration in Vancouver so all you will have to do in IAH is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will likely arrive in C and depart from E. They are directly connected inside security.

     

  • Vancouver - Mexico - Separate Tickets

    I'll arrive from Vancouver at Terminal 2 (Air Canada) and I need to catch an AeroMexico flight. I purchased separate tickets, so I will have to pick up my luggage. Do I have to exit security to check-in at AeroMexico (also terminal 2), or are there check-in booths that can take my luggage?

     

    All baggage claims and check-in desks are outside security. The Aeromexico check-in desks will be on the upper level of Terminal 2, right above the baggage claim.

    United Airlines Flight UA 6417 will be arriving from Santa Maria to LAX @ 12:30pm on Aug. 26, 2014; the same day, our next flight is United Airlines UA 1164 will leave LAX at 1:07pm to Denver. Will we have enough time to get to our terminal in 37 minutes?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will arrive in Terminal 8 and depart from Terminal 6, 7, or 8. All United gates at LAX are connected inside security.

     

  • 50 Min connection from YWG to EWR
    Aug 19, 2014

    I am looking at a 50 minute connection arriving in ORD from YWG, transferring planes to continue to EWR. Is 50 minutes enough time? And do you know if baggage wold have to be claimed and re dropped?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration in Winnipeg. All you have to do in ORD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Your arrival will be in Terminal 1 or 2 and your departure will be from Terminal 1. The two terminals are connected inside security by a walkway. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

  • Arrive T3 (United), Depart International (Cathay) - Time Needed?
    Aug 19, 2014

    Hello, Will be arriving 10.30am from Las Vegas on United (internal flight). Then have to collect baggage > exit terminal > get to the International terminal > check-in > clear security for a 13.45 Departure to Hong Kong (Cathay). Is 3 hours enough time to comfortably do this (even with delays) or better to get an earlier flight from Vegas (with 5 hr wait between flights)? Many Thanks!

     

    That should be plenty of time.

    Is there a post-security connection/walkway between T1 (Southwest) and t2 (American)?

     

    No, the walkway between T1 and T2 is outside security.

     

  • connecting times transfer AMS > IAH > LAX

    Hi, is 1 hr 20 min enough time for getting immagrations and customs before connecting flight to LAX? I'm arriving IAH from AMS and flying all flights with United.

     

    That is below the minimum connection time for an International -> Domestic transfer at IAH, but it may be possible if your flight from Amsterdam is on-time or early.

     

  • international connection in ORD - reclaim luggage & customs?
    Aug 18, 2014

    I am flying from Beijing PEK to Amsterdam, through ORD. Will I have to reclaim my luggage and go through customs in ORD? Is 90 minutes long enough to make my connection?

     

    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, and go through US Customs then re-check your bags. Then if you are taking United to Amsterdam you will have to take the ATS train to Terminal 1 and go through security. If you are taking KLM to Amsterdam you will stay in Terminal 5 and go through security there.

     

    90 minutes should be barely enough time if your tickets were bought together. It will be not enough time if they were not.

     

    Yes, it's United. Ugh. Sounds like a pain.

     

    My tickets were bought together. I'll be hoping for an early arrival and be that person running through the airport. Wish me luck! Thanks so much for your quick reply.
