  • SEPARATE TICKETS - ARRIVAL AT T4 FROM MIAMI & DEPARTING AT T1 MILANO
    Apr 19, 2015

    Hi ZAP and everybody !! My name is Paolo and i'm italian. On Saturday 13th June i'm arriving at JFK at 18:45 with a domestic Delta flight from MIA and at 20:30 from T1 lands off my Alitalia plane for Milano Malpensa (MPX). Checking in online with Alitalia is it possible to try this connection !? I have luggages. I tried to change my tickets but it's impossible because penalties are more expensive than the ticket price. Please help..

    I am flying from Montreal to Pittsburgh via Philadelphia. I will have 1 hour 30 mins to go from Terminal F to Terminal B. Would that be enough? I am worried about the US immigration. Do I have to go through immigration at Philadelphia, or do I go through preclearance at Montreal? I will only have carry-ons.

    I am arriving on Delta in Terminal 4 and have 1 hour and 10 minutes to get to Alitalia Air in Terminal 1 flying to Italy. Will I have to go through security again? What is the fastest way to get to terminal 4 from terminal 1

     

    You have to take the AIrTrain from T4 to T1 and go through security. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    We arrive from Palermo at 11:25 AM into Terminal 1 and leave at 12:50 PM to JFK from Terminal 5. Will we make it?

     

    Did you purchase your tickets separately or together? If together and your bags are checked through to JFK then you can proceed directly to your departure gate in the T3 Satellite. T5 is just for check-in and security. No flights actually leave from there.

     

  • T8 International to Domestic Connection

    I will be arriving on an AA flight from LHR to JFK T8 and departing to DCA also from T8. The connection time is 1hr15 minutes. Do I need to exit through immigration and then re-enter? Is this enough time to make the connection?

     

    Yes, you will 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. That is 15 minutes shorter than the recommended time for that connection. It's possible but there's no room to spare for delays.

    I am arriving from Ottawa, Canada via UNITED EXPRESS/TRANS STATES at 8:33 am and have a connection to Charleston via UNITED EXPRESS/MESA. Can someone please let me know which terminal I have to go to get my connected flight and how do I can go there via shuttle or etc...thanks

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will likely arrive in concourse A and depart from concourse C or D. A is connected to C and D by the AeroTrain and Mobile Lounge inside security.

     

  • Connecting flight time crunch?

    I have a delta flight from SLC arriving at JFK at 3:07pm (not sure what terminal) and then a connecting flight to the Dominican Republic leaving at 4pm from Terminal 4. Is this enough time between flights? Do I have to recheck my baggage or go through customs for the DR? Any advice would be great! Thanks!

     

    All you have to do in JFK is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you arrive in Terminal 2, Delta runs a shuttle bus between T2 and T4 inside security. You will go through DR immigration and customs when you get to DR.

     

    Thank you! Is that also enough time for my baggage to get put on the connecting flight as well?

     

    Yes, it should be enough time.

     

  • LHR-ORD-LAX / BA and AA

    Hi, I was wondering if I will have enough connecting time at ORD? I arrive from LHR by BA to terminal 5 at 13.45 and leave for LAX from terminal 3 at 15.10. It is all booked in the same reservation, but I will have checked luggage with me, and I am a EU national. I assume I will have to go through immigration and pick up my luggage and re-check it? So there is a big risk I will miss my connecting flight. What happens if I do? Will they rebook me free of charge? Thank you in advance!

     

    That is 5 minutes shorter than the recommended International to Domestic connection time. Yes, you will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs, then re-check it at the transfer desk immediately after. Then take the ATS Train to T3 and go through security. You will probably make it if your flight arrives on-time. If you do miss your connection you will rebooked on the next available AA flight to LAX. AA has lots of flights from ORD to LAX.

     

  • Min. time needed to connect from Terminal C to A on different airlines

    Arriving Terminal C from FRA 2:15pm on United, 29 June 2015 connecting with SW in Terminal A for a 3:55pm flight. I'll have to collect bags and clear customs, am I going to make it, given I've got approx. 1hr. 15M min to play with? Thanks in advance for your response!

     

    That will be difficult. You will have to hope immigration lines are short in order to make it to Terminal A with your bags before the checked baggage cutoff.

    Hi..I arrive from LIS to EWR at 15:45 in Terminal C on TAP airline and I have a connection to LAX on United from Terminal C at 17:59 with a connection time of 2 hr 15 min. Is it enough time between flights? Any advice much appreciated.

     

    TAP and most United flights from Lisbon arrive in Terminal B. YOu will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security. You should have enough time.

     

  • SFO to IAD to DUBAI

    I am flying from SFO to DUBAI w/ United but I have a connecting flight at IAD. Do I have to go through security again once I land at IAD to catch my next plane??? I have abour 2 hrs and 55 minutes before my next flight. Pls advice...

     

    No, on your way to Dubai you will not have to go through security in IAD. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both on the C/D concourse. You should have plenty of time.

     

    Thanks! I was also wondering if I were to check in a luggage in SFO... do I have to claim it at IAD??? OR... will it be transferred for me so that I can just go straight to my departure gate to my connecting flight to Dubai?

     

    It will be transferred for you. Literally all you have to do in IAD is walk from one gate to another.

     

  • ORD connection time from SFO to YXU through ORD

    I am flying from SFO to London Ontario, canada through ORD on united/united express. There are two flights, one has a 1 hour 15 min connection the other option is a 2 hour connection. Is the 1 hour 15 min enough or should I book the 2 hour connection time

     

    1 hr 15 is enough. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Would the gates be in the same terminal? And is the 6:38 am united flight from SFO usually on time?

     

    Morning departures tend to be on-time more often. You will arrive in Terminal 1 and likely depart from Terminal 2, but they are connected inside security by a walkway.

     

  • 1 hrs 25 minutes connecting time & customs on United airlines

    I fly London to IAD arriving at 3:25PM on United. I have a connecting United flight to Charlotte with an one hour 25 min connecting time. Is that enough time to go thru customs? I then fly Charlotte to Myrtle Beach, SC. but have lots of time on that portion of the trip. I am worried about the IAD connection to Charlotte.

     

    It is 5 minutes below the recommended International to Domestic connection time, but if both flights are on United and your flight from London is on-time, I think you can make it.

    Hi! I have a flight from Minneapolis to Chicago and then a connection to Abu Dhabi, but I will arrive to terminal 2 and the flight departures from terminal 5... I have 2 different tickets, so I probably have to claim my baggage, and check in again, I am also not from U.S. so I have to go through migration before I leave the country... Is it 3 hours enough time to do this?

     

    There is no US exit immigration. You will just have to go through security in T5. 3 hours should be enough time.
