  • Is it possible? 60 mins to connection Lufthansa flights
    Nov 1, 2014
    1
    Arrival in Frankfurt (from London) on Flight# 917. 60mins to connect to flight #510 to Buenos Aires, Argentina. I'm reading mixed messages on whether there is fast lane security, priority checked in baggage transfer or if I'll make it. Considering paying for a new flight just to increase connection time. Grateful for your advice please?

     

    ...forgot to add both flights are terminal 1

    I fly Lufthansa and arrive in Frankfurt Terminal 1 from Bengaluru at 8:50am. And I have to catch a flight on Austrian Airlines from Terminal 1 at 10:50am to Sarajevo. Do I have enough time to go through Passport Control, exit Arrival area and check into the Depature Terminal ?

  • Oz flight QANTAS to Virgin America Connection Time

    Hi, I am arriving on a QANTAS flight into Tom Bradley at 6.30am and I was hoping to book a flight with Virgin America to Cancun which would be leaving from terminal 3 at 10.45am, would there be enough time to make it through customs etc. and make the flight?

     

    Oh I forgot to mention that I would be arriving on 30th December, thinking that it might be busy cause of the Christmas/NY period.

  • Connection time Delta domestic to Air France

    Daughter is heading for study abroad, LAX to Florence on Delta & Air France. Current itinerary has outbound 90 minute connection time at JFK from Delta domestic terminal 4 to Air France terminal 1 and then 1 hr 40 mins at CDG to Florence. Return has her with 2 hrs at JFK to clear customs and connect to LAX, changing from terminal 1 to 4. Will this be enough time on both sides? Delta tells me yes but I'm a worried mother.

     

  • International Connection in DTW with Delta-Air France

    I will have my flight from CLT to DTW (Delta), and I will connect to Air France From DTW to CDG(Paris), to do so, I will have 40min, is that enough? I also wondering if I need to check out my baggage there or not? I mean by not, the carrier would take care of my luggage. Thank you

     

    You won't have to do anything with your baggage in Detroit. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will both be in the McNamara Terminal.

     

  • Security at JFK for international transfer - duty free

    Hi I am flying in JFK from Jamaica tomorrow afternoon with Delta to then transfer onto a London bound flight with Delta again. Could someone tell me the rules regarding duty free. I wish to take two bottles of rum with me from Jamaica but unsure whether this will cause issues in JFK when passing through security to catch my London flight. Thanks.

     

    You will claim your baggage to go through US Customs, then, before you re-check your baggage you need to put the Rum in your checked bags. If you are not checking bags you won't be able to bring the Rum back with you.

     

  • 1 hour layover

    We will be flying from new york to vancouver with a 1 hour layover in seattle. Is that enough time? All our tickets have been purchased together. Don't know if it makes a difference but we are both dutch citizens, so no us or canadian passport.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, assuming you purchased a single reservation. You will go through Canadian immigration and customs when you get to Vancouver.

    Hello, My Mother is travelling alone for first time from Basel to mumbai, with connecting flight from Frankfurt. The airlines is lufthansa . flight from basel to frankfurt is LH1203 AND Frankfurt to Mumbai is LH756. There is 1 hr 5 min time at frankfurt. Will it be sufficient to complete all the process and board the next flight. Waiting for your valuable comments and response

     

    It should be enough time but there isn't much time to spare.

     

    Can you also guide on the terminal where they will land in frankfurt and where to board the next flight..

     

  • Fort Wayne to Montreal

    I am flying from Fort Wayne to Chicago on AA and from Chicago to Montreal on Air Canada. I have to reclaim my bag, go through security/immigration and switch terminals from 3 to 2. Where do I go to reclaim and recheck my bag and will I have enough time with 2hrs?

     

    You have the process all wrong. First of all, did you purchase your tickets separately or together? If together your bags will be checked through to Montreal and you won't see them until you get there. If together you will have to claim them in Terminal 3 and take them to Terminal 2. Secondly, you do not have to go through US Immigration when leaving the US. If you purchased tickets together all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate in T3 to your departure gate in T2, they are connected inside security. If you purchased separate tickets, all you have to do is claim your bag in T3, go up to the departure level and to T2 (which is right next door) and check it with Air Canada, then go through security. You have enough time.

    I am planning to book a flight on LH from YYZ in business and making a connection through FRA to LHR again on LH. Is 40 minutes enough time for the connection?

     

    That's a pretty difficult connection.

     

  • Alaska Air from Fairbanks to LAX and checkin on Cathay Pacific to HK

    I am booked on a flight from Fairbanks to Anchorage to LAX on 22 May 2015 and arriving at LAX on 23 May 2015 at 0650 hours, We have then to check our baggage in with Cathay Pacific for Hong Kong leaving at 0940 hours. Will there be enough time to collect baggage with Alaska Airlines and then travel to the Cathay Pacific Terminal at LAX to check in. Do we have enough time as we have just under 3 hours for al this to happen? Please help. Thank you

     

    Yes, that will be PLENTY of time. You will have your bags by 7:20. Then it's maybe a 10 minute walk to the International Terminal where the Cathay check-in desks are.

     

    Hi thanks for your response. Will I need to go through security and immigration on arrival st LAX with Alaska Airlines from Fairbanks and Anchorage before collecting my baggage? Will I have to then go through another security area with Cathay Pacific?

    Arriving into LAX from Melbourne on new United Dreamliner. Arriving Terminal 7 and departing Terminal 7 for Orlando, also on United. Connection time 2:20. I have not found any relevant post about the process in Terminal 7 for UA international arrivals and was wondering if I will have enough time?

     

    Yes, you will have enough time. You will arrive in T7, go through US Immigration, go claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go upstairs and through security. You should have plenty of time.
