  • 41 Min Layover Enough time ?!
    Mar 2, 2015

    First Time Flyer, young kid, can run if needed haha! Leaving Boston 7:00 am, arriving in EWR at 8:27, 9:08 flight to SRQ. Both United Airlines and both bought on same itinerary. Will I be at the same Terminal when I arrive, if not where do I go and how long does it take? Any tips would help! Thanks

    Unfortunately my layover is super short - flying in from Denver with United (Terminal 7 or 8 it seems) and I have to make it to the international terminal in about 40 minutes. I know I already have to make it through security again but do I have to recheck my bags? Insight would be appreciated if I should even attempt this.

     

    Assuming you purchased all your tickets together, your bags should be transferred automatically.

     

    Thanks, that helps a lot. I read that you have to go through security again when entering the international terminal. My flight lands all 11:35 PM. Anyone have any insight as to how busy it might be?

    Hi, I've travelling from LHR - ORD - LAX, I've 1 hour 50 mins between flights from ORD to LAX. Arriving terminal 5 and connecting flight from Terminal 3. We are 4 adults and 1 child and we will have few checked-in bags and hand luggage.. Travelling by American Airline - LHR - ORD - LAX - do I still have to claim bags and recheck it?

     

    Yes, after Immigration, you will have to claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then take the ATS Train to T3 and go through security. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

    Thanks, lets hope its on time, looking to see if I can get priority bag tags and priority security option to save some time... thanks again

     

  • Layover of 55 minutes

    I am flying from Jacksonville to San Francisco by Delta. I have a 55 minutes lay over at Atlanta & air craft will have to be changed, will 55 minutes be sufficient? I will be having check in luggage

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

     

  • MKE - ATL - PLS

    Looking at MKE -> ATL #DL771 arrives 9:04AM, Departure is #DL509 to PLS. I'm guessing I can make the flight if things are on time but worried about my bags. Another option on AA is through CLT (but still only 50 minute layover). Will i make the connection in ATL?

     

    Or guess I should better say...will my bags make the connection?

     

    The 50 minute connection at CLT would probably be easier and safer.

     

  • London Heathrow to Pittsburgh via EWR

    Hi, I'm flying into EWR from London Heathrow, and then onto Pittsburgh. I have 1h30 to make the connection. Is that likely to be enough time? Will I need to collect my bags, clear immigration, and re-check in for my second flight? Or can I clear immigration in Pittsburgh? (I don't have a US passport (UK) so worried about how long it might take to clear immigration.)

     

    You have the procedure correct. You will do everything in Newark. 90 minutes is possible but leaves very little time to spare in case there is a delay.

    Flying from Halifax thru Philadelphia to Tampa, 55 minutes to connect, is that enough time?

     

    My flight is on US Airways

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in halifax. You will likely arrive in Terminal F. You will have to take the shuttle bus, which runs inside security from Terminal F to your departure terminal.

     

  • Lincoln-Atlanta-Aruba Enough time?

    We are flying Delta and are scheduled for a 45 minute layover to catch the one and only flight of the day to Aruba. Can we make it? Can our luggage make it? If we don't make it, would we have to wait an entire day or would they try to send us on via Miami or another city?

     

    You can make it if your first flight is on-time and you hurry. If you do miss your connection you could probably make them try to rebook you via Miami on American.

     

    Thanks! What do you think about the luggage?

     

    If you can make it usually your luggage does too.

    I am leaving from Toronto March 13, flight Delta 2551 arriving in Atlanta at 9:34am. Connecting flight to Montego Bay Delta flight 727 leaving at 10:35 with no luggage being checked. Will I make my flight?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Atlanta is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate which will both be in the E or F concourse. You should have enough time.

    We are flying from Toronto to ORD and have a connecting flight to LIT. No checked luggage. What is the minimum connection needed to clear customs and get to our connecting gate? Thanks.

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. So 45 minutes should be enough.

    Im flying into ord from lhr on aa87. Arriving 1:45 p. I have a non-connecting flight to spi on ua5340, departing ord at 3:31. Is this sufficient time to claim my bags, recheck them, etc.?

     

    It should barely be enough time. United has a staffed re-check in Terminal 5, they might be able to re-tag your bag to SPI there, so you don't have to wait in line in T1 to re-check it and can head straight to T2 where your SPI flight will likely depart. Check-in online for your ORD-SPI flight before you leave London.

     

  • Connection thorugh IAD

    My daughter is arriving at IAD on United from AMS at 3:00PM and then meeting and departing with us to MCO at 5:05PM. I know she has to go through customs before meeting us, but will she have to go all the way to IAB? Or would she be making use of United's dedicated facility saving time? It seems like 2 hours should be sufficient time, but...

     

    She will likely use the dedicated United facility. Sometimes United passengers are taken to the IAB if United's facility is too crowded (so to save them time). 2 hours should be enough.

     

  • Domestic to international, is 51 minutes long enough?

    Will fly in DTW in a small Delta plane and connect to Delta international flight. Is 51 minutes long enough to make the connection? Thanks!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time as long as the first flight is on-time.

     

  • Connecting from Virgin Atl flight from LHR to Delta flight to Buffalo

    On July 15th we will arrive around 2:30 at JFK on a Virgin Atlantic flight from LHR. At 4:20 we would need to catch a Delta flight to Buffalo, NY. Is this enough time to clear customs and change terminals?

     

    It is possible if you don't have any baggage to claim and recheck. If youbdo then you will be cutting it VERY close and will need to rush at every step to make it in time.

     

  • Connection T1-T2 in 2:10, enough?

    Hello, I'll be arriving from San Jose (SJO) with Aeromexico at 18:40 and than depart at 20:10 to FRAnkfurt with Lufthansa. Seems that I'll need to change terminals too. Am I right that I'll need to clear customs and immigration too? Any chance to get on my final flight to FRA, what do u think? :-)
