  • Ottawa - Washington - Orlando

    Hi, I'm looking at a United flight from Ottawa to Orlando VIA Dulles... It's showing me a 47 min layover. 7:33 AM arrive and 8:20 AM depart. Is this realistically enough time? I realize that Ottawa has US customs, so I don't have to go through security again, right?

     

    ...and what's the chance that my bags will or will not make it on the flight with me ;)

     

  • YYZ-FCO-SVO transfer

    I will fly from Canada to FCO in July, arrive 13:00 at T3. And connect to Moscow SVO at 15:15, from T1. Both segments are Alitalia, in one ticket. I will only have hand luggage. Is the connection time (2h15m) sufficient? Do I need to go through Passport Control at T3 to enter Schengen Area and again Passport Control at T1 to exit Schengen and have security check at T1? I am non-EU citizen holding a Schengen visa. How long would be the walk from T3 to T1? Thanks!

    On april 24 I will arrive at ORD Terminal 3 at 4.01 pm with flight BA 5308 from Rochester MN, then at 4.40 pm I will depart from Terminal 3 to London Heathrow (flight BA 1543). Is the connection time (39 minutes) enough ?

     

    If the first flight will be delayed, does the company cover the cost for staying in Chicago one night if not able to find another flight in the same day ?

     

    It depends on the reason for the delay. Usually they do not. However, they will probably be able to get you to Europe that evening (probably with a connection in Frankfurt).

    looking at buying tickets for 1/1/16 travel. Leaving BRU UA flight 951 arriving IAD at 2:55 pm. Departing UA flight 939 for Phoenix at 5:05 pm. Is this enough time

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

     

    One other question what about leaving on December 19. Leaving Phx UA flight 316 arrives IAD 4:05 pm then dea Parts for brussels at 5:50 pm UA FLIGHT 950. Is 1 hr 45 minute connection time ok

     

    Yes, that would be plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in the C/D concourse.

    Looking at buying tickets December 19 arriving ORD FROM Phx UA FLIGHT 248. Departing for BRU UA FLIGHT 972. Is this enough time

     

    forgot to add arrival time is 4:26 departure 6:05. 1 hr 38 minute layover

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 1.

    HI we have a flight UA870 from Sydney to SFO arrive 8.40am connecting to flight UA1569 at 10.42 to YVR both through United. Is this enough time 2 hours and what procedure should we follow on arrival to help speed up the process, many thanks for any help you can supply.

     

    You will arrive in concourse G of the international terminal, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, claim your bags, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

     

  • arrival from MSP at 7p leaving HND at 7:37p

    Any experience with Delta scheduled to arrive from MSP at 7pm and trying to catch Delta to HND at 7:37p. Looks like DL 2253 has been delayed by min 10-15 mins every day this week (even on days when flights left on time). Any feedback would be much appreciated.

     

    All you will have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in the S concourse. so all you really need is 10 minutes. However, yeah, if the flight is late you'll be stuck in Seattle overnight.

    I have an hour and 4 minute lay over in Newark arriving from halifax, Canada in terminal A, we have a connecting flight to South Carolina in Terminal C... Is there sufficient time? Thanks

     

    There's a good chance both flights will actually be in Terminal A, but even if your departure is from C, that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Halifax.

    Hi, I'm arriving from KL651 from Amsterdam to Dulles, and I have a connecting national flight of US airways 5107 to Charlotte. Is 50 minutes enough to make this?

     

    Absolutely NOT! You need at least 2.5 hours if purchasing two separate tickets. If you have already booked this you need to change it as soon as possible.

    Hello! I am flying to Orlando from Edmonton via Dallas. Do I need to check my baggage again and go through security after arrival in Dallas? Thanks in advance!

     

    No, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Edmonton. All you have to do in Dallas is go from your arrival gate to your departure gates. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security.

     

  • 3 minutes layover--is it enough?

    We arrive at ORD on AA#1444 at 4:08 pm from PHX and depart on AA#110 to Rome at 4:45 pm. Is that enough time? Thank you

     

    Yes, that is enough time if your first flight is on-time - all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 3. However, there is no room to spare if your flight from Phoenix is delayed at all.

     

  • Tight connection Vueling to USAirways

    We will arrive at Terminal 3 on Vueling from Catania at 9:55am and then need to leave from Terminal 5 on a USAirways flight at 11:20. We can carry our bags onto the USAirways flight but will have to check them on Vueling and then retrieve them. Will we have enough time?

     

    That will be very difficult. The shuttle to Terminal 5 leaves closer to Terminal 1 and the US Airways check in counter will close at 10:20, just 25 minutes after you are scheduled to arrive. I suggest finding an earlier flight to Rome or flying in the day before.

    Coming in from Boston @ 8AM on 8/19 departing on Express Jet d/b/a United Express @ 9AM. Is this enough time? Does Express Jet d/b/a United Express usually use same terminal?

     

    Expressjet operated United Express flights can depart from Terminal 1 or 2. You will arrive in Terminal 1. However, there is a walkway connecting Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 inside security. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

  • Travel from Terminal 1 to 3

    I am landing by a Southwest flight into Terminal 1 and need to meet with a traveler arriving by a domestic Virgin America flight into Terminal 3. Is the inter-terminal shuttle easy to locate and use? Are there 2 shuttle drop off locations at Terminal 3? We are hoping to meet by the baggage claim and then travel to a hotel on the Strip. Thanks!

     

    The shuttle has one stop in each terminal but it's easy to get between the arrival level and departure levels inside the terminal.

     

    Thank you ZAP! Would you also happen to know if the shuttle is easily accessible? Is it as simple as walking outside and finding it by the curb?

    Yes, that should be plenty of time to make your connection at JFK.

     

    Thank You so much
