  • Is 35 minutes for a layover pushing it too close?
    May 4, 2015
    2
    Flying GSO - LGA - YUL (Greensboro - New York - Montreal) and have only a 35 minute layover in LGA. Is this cutting it too close even if I'm flying Delta on both flights.

     

    It's possible if the first flight is on-time, but it depends on the first flight being on-time and delays at LGA in the summer are unfortunately very common.

     

    How about in November?

    Is 53 minutes enough time for a layover in Detroit? Flying Delta on both flights

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All Delta gates are in the McNamara terminal and connected inside security.

     

  • Panama City - Miami (1.5 hrs) - Chicago

    Hi all, I'm planning on booking a flight with AA from Panama City to Chicago. There is a 1.5 hr stopover in Miami, I'm not sure if I'll have to go through security / or take off my bag and put it on again etc, could anyone let me know the procedure and if this is enough time? (I'm a UK citizen if that makes a difference).

     

    Yes, you will arrive in Miami, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. 1.5 hours is barely enough time assuming everything goes smoothly.

    Arriving at LAX at 6:10 AM from Delta (HNL) and connecting to Southwest at 8:30 AM. Is 2 hours enough time to retrieve bags and recheck at Southwest? (There are 6 in our group with children.)

     

    That is barely enough time assuming the first flight is on-time. It will take about 20 minutes to walk from T5 to T1 with your baggage. Check in online for your Southwest flight before leaving Hawaii.

    I'm arriving from Dallas on American at 11:44am and have a Aeromexico flight to La Paz at 3:05. Which terminal do I come into and can I pick up all my luggage and re-check including golf clubs?

     

    Where are you flying from on American. American/American Eagle use terminals A, B, C, and D. You will depart on Aeromexico from Terminal D.

     

    Coming in from DFW.

    I arrive from London at 2pm on Delta, go through customs, then have to fly to CHS on American/Usairways. at 3:40pm. Is this going to work as far as time goes?

     

    Did you purchase separate tickets or did you purchase your tickets together? If separately I don't think you will get through immigration and to your bags and to customs in-time to re-check them with US Airways. It's possible if your flight arrives early and everything goes very smoothly, but if anything goes wrong or there is a delay you won't make it.

     

  • Connecting from domestic flight to international

    We have a 45-min layover between our inbound domestic flight and our outbound international flight (Europe). Is this feasible?

     

    Where are you connecting? What airlines? were your tickets purchased together or separately?

     

    Single ticket Halifax-Montreal-Athens on Lufthansa/Air Canada.

     

    Yes, that should be doable - it just doesn't leave much time to spare if your flight from Halifax is delayed.

    I have flght tickets from domestic fligh to Europe where I have to change from terminal 8 to 7 at JFK. I know that there is an airtrain. How long does it takes? Do I have to pass again the Security Control by TSA?. Thank

     

    The Airtrain will take no more than 10-15 minutes. Yes, you will have to go through security again in T7.

    Hi, I am travelling from Paris to Milwaukee the 11th of May, with a 1h45 layover in Minneapolis. The first flight is performed by AirFrance (AF 0694) and the second one is performed by Delta AirLine (AF8732). Will I have enough time to get to my next flight ? Is it likely to have a lot of waiting at US immigration ? And will I have to claim my bags in Minneapolis and re-check them for the flight to Milwaukee ? If I need to re-check my bags, is it easy to find the place where I must leave the bags ? Thanks.

     

    1 hr 45 minutes should be enough time. Yes, in Minneapolis you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk that will be immediately after customs.

     

  • London to Atlanta on VS, then on to MSY on DL

    Hi, I'm travelling from London to Atlanta on Virgin Atlantic and have 1 hour 55 minutes to connect to a Delta flight from ATL to New Orleans. The flights are on separate bookings. I will need to clear immigration and am hoping to travel with cabin baggage only. Do you think this leaves me enough time? I will check in online for both flights.

     

    Yes, without checked bags this is doable, as after customs you can go through security and directly to your departure gate on the Plane Train.

    Do all Delta flight arrive and depart from the same concourse? We have a 37 minute layover on a flight from Key West to GRR.

     

    Delta domestic flights use concourses T, A, B, and C.

    will arrive AC/UA in Terminal 1 and go to AC/UA in terminal 2. I will have checked baggage. Austin to Chicago to Athens. Will have 47 minutes between flights. AC3969 to AC4814 to AC1900. Will I have to go thru security. Will my baggage transfer in time. THANKS joe

     

    Terminal 1 and 2 at ORD are connected inside security by a walkway.

     

    Thank you, Also, my wife is very slow walker, what is the best way to obtain a ride for her on a cart. Are they available between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. We will have to hurry.

     

    The only way to ride in a cart is by requesting wheelchair service.

    My flight arrives at LAX at 655am and my connection to Detroit leaves at 920am will I have enough time? Also should i drop my luggage off immediately after customs or bring it to the terminal with me and re check it in? I'm just worried about missing my flight and my luggage being checked and sent on without me and getting lost. Thanks

     

    You should have enough time. If your bags are tagged through to your final destination, then re-check them in the International Treminal after clearing customs.

     

    Thank you very much for your response
