  • Flight Transfer at EWR- Need to recheck in the Bags
    Mar 4, 2015
    1
    Hi .. First time flyer... My flight is from MUMBAI ( BOM) to Jacksonville thru EWR. Have to change the terminal and on board a different Airline (United Airlines) Domestic flight to Jacksonville. Do I need to pick the baggage, go thru immigration clearance and redo the security check in? Please Help!!!!!!!!

     

    If you purchased your tickets together in one purchase, You will arrive in Terminal B, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs. Then if your bags are tagged through to JAX you can re-check them at the transfer desk. Otherwise look up which terminal your flight will depart from. United flights to JAX depart from both Terminal A and C. Take the AirTrain to your departure terminal, then re-check your bags if you haven't already. Get your United boarding pass if you don't already have it, and go through security.

     

  • New to Schengen, non-Schengen, Can you help?

    In March will arrive from TPE to connect to BEG, and my return is from BEG to connect to IAD. Need I collect luggage to recheck in addition to passport control, security etc. both ways? Thank you!

     

    Assuming each of your connections in AMS were purchased together (ie TPE-AMS-BEG is on one ticket and BEG-AMS-IAD is on one ticket), You will not have to collect your baggage in AMS on any connection. Since you will not be entering the Schengen Area on any of these flights either, you will not have to go through passport control. You will just go through security.

     

  • Do I have enough time to make my connection?

    I don't know the first thing about this airport. I am arriving from Buffalo ny to IAD at 4:19 and then my international flight to Dakar, Senegal leaves at 5:40. Will 1.5 hours be enough time to get to where I need to go?

     

    Yes, if you purchased your tickets together your baggage will be transferred and you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates at IAD are connected inside security.

     

    Thank you so much! I appreciate it!

    I am scheduled to arrive at ORD frmo Madison at 6:22 this afternoon for a 7:15 connection to Zurich. I am not checking a bag. What ar emy chances of making that flight

     

    You have a good chance. You will likely arrive in Terminal 2. Swiss Airlines flights leave from Terminal 5, so you will have to exit T2, take the ATS Train to T5, and go through security. If your first flight is on-time you should have enough time.

     

  • Layover LAX to London Heathrow

    Sacramento/LAX/Heathrow 95 minute layover. Is this enough time to get from Delta to Virgin Atlantic terminal and will it be enough time for our luggage to be transfered to Virgin Atlantic. Tickets bought through Delta which is partners with Virgin Atlantic on some oversea flights. Will Delta trasfer our luggage for us.

     

    Yes, Delta will transfer your luggage and should issue both boarding passes in Sacramento. All you have to do is walk from T5 to the International Terminal and go through security. That should be plenty of time.

     

  • can you go from an american gate to united without boarding pass

    I want to fly in on American but have a meeting in the united terminal - near gate 67. Can I walk directly to there or do I need a united boarding pass? Thanks

     

    You need a United boarding pass. Those gates aren't connected inside security.

     

  • Assistance from West Jet arrival to Quantas

    I am travelling from Calgary on West Jet , through Lax and then to Australia On Quantas. I have a 3 hour layover to do this.I don.t have a clue what the process is. is it clearly marked? I have one checked bag. Any help is appreciated!

     

    Did you purchase your tickets separately or together? You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary so your arrival in LAX will be like a domestic flight. If you purchased separate tickets you will claim your bags in T2, take them to the International Terminal (you can either walk or take a shuttle bus), then check in with Qantas and go through security to your gate. If you purchased your tickets together the process is the same except that your baggage will be transferred for you.

    We are flying on United Airlines from La Guardia to Puerto Vallarta. Our layover in Houston is 49 minutes. Is that enough to switch terminals? Thanks!

     

    YOu will arrive in C and depart from E. They are directly connected. That should be enough if your first flight is on-time.

    Arrive from Pheonix @ terminal 1 at 2.45pm and will take off from Terminal 4 at 4.15 - is it enough ? what is the best way to change terminal ?

     

    No flights from Phoenix arrive in Terminal 1. What airlines are you flying and where are you flying to?

     

    good point. I will actually arrive with AF8864 at Terminal 4 at 2.45pm and will leave to Paris with AF023 taking off at 4.15pm from Terminal 1. Is it Ok and what is the best way to change terminal

     

    Note that the first flight will be operated by Delta. Your bags will be transferred automatically. You will have to take the AirTrain from T4 to T1 and go through security. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

  • Enough time?

    My starting point is San Diegp arriving at JFK at 2:52 pm. International flight to Rome departs at 4:35 pm. I have checked lugguage. Is this enough time??

     

    Were your tickets purchased together or separately? What airlines are you flying? I can't answer this question without that info.

     

    Tickets purchased together through a tour group Globus. Flying Delta.

     

    You should have enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate which will both likely be in Terminal 4. All Delta gates at JFK are connected inside security and to you don't go through US Customs when leaving the US.

    We are booked to fly from Skopje (Macedonia non-Schengen) to Venice via FCO arriving 7.15am and leaving 8.25am. Are we able to check our luggage from Skopje to Venice? With Australian passports will there be enough time to transit (got through immigration etc) with only 1 hour 10 minutes? Thank you!

     

    If you purchased your tickets together your bags will be sent straight to Venice. That should be enough time. Schengen passport control is pretty lax for passport holders from developed countries.

     

    Thanks ZAP. Yes tickets are on one PNR. I also did some research and seems to be in and out of terminal 1 which of course makes it all easier too I imagine.

    I am arriving at terminal B and my connecting flight is at terminal E. Can I take the terminallink to terminal C then walk to terminal E from terminal C?

     

    The TerminaLink actually has a stop for D and E.

    I will be arriving to SFO at 8 am from an international flight, then I will have to connect to another flight to LAX that flies at 11 am. tickets were booked separately and are different airlines. now am I going to have enough time to catch up to my Lax plane? what about my bag, should I check in to SF and take it? are terminals far from each other? I'm really afraid that I will have to wait in the longest line to check in security.. what do you guys think?

     

    I can't help you very much unless you tell me what airlines you are flying and where you're coming from.

     

  • Customs and Houston time

    Will be flying to Belize City from Winnipeg Canada. Flying to Edmonton first. Do I go through customs in Edmonton? Will my luggage be checked through to Belize? From Edmonton I fly to Houston and then to Belize City. Coming home, I have a 1hr 47 min layover in Houston. Is this enough time? I will need to connect I think, terminal A for Calgary Canada.

     

    You will go through US Immigration and customs in Edmonton. You will have to claim your luggage in Edmonton to go through preclearance and then won't touch it again until you get to Belize. You should have plenty of time in Houston. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.

     

    Thanks so much for your answer. No one I talked to seem to know.

    I am taking a flight from Fort Wayne to Austin with a connecting flight in Dallas. Only a 46 minute layover. I need help getting to the tram and next gate. I don't think I can walk that fast to make the flight. What do I do?

     

    Call American and request wheelchair service.
