    My boyfriend and I are going to Ireland and fly domestic into JFK, then leave international to Ireland. Both flights are through Delta. Will we have enough time to get through to our connecting flight? I completely disregarded the time for customs when booking

     

  • Transfer from United to Qantas

    I arrive on UAL flight from SFO at 8:39pm. This ticket was purchased separately from the flights on Qantas. My flight on Qantas leaves at 10:50pm the same night. First question; will UAL check luggage to final destination in Melbourne? If not then I'm very concerned with the transfer time to the Bradley terminal since I will need to get my checked-in bags at UAL terminal 7 and hustle to the Qantas check-in. Will I have enough time? Any tips to ensure the connection is made?...inputs most appreciated.

     

  • Enough time?

    We have a 1hr 10 min layover at JFK and will need to go from Terminal 2 to Terminal 4. Both are Delta airlines and we are wondering if there is enough time to get our connection. Do we have to get bags? Through security again? THANKS!

     

    No, you will not have to collect your baggage and if you take the Shuttle bus between terminals, you will not have to go through security.

    I'm planning to fly from SFO to JFK and then JFK to LHR (london) on Virgin America then Virgin Atlantic. Virgin flies in and out of Terminal 4. The layover time if 55 minutes. It looks like I will be landing and departing from the same terminal, but will I have to go through security again? Will 55 minutes be enough? Thanks!

     

    No, you will not have to go through security. That should be enough time.

     

    Thank you for your help1

    I am flying to Europe from Kansas City, to O'Hare, to Toronto, to Barcelona. My layover at O'Hare is 1 hour, 10 minutes. Will that be enough time?

     

    If all your tickets were purchased together that should be enough time.

    We have a layover time in IAH of 57 minutes. Is this enough time to transfer between terminals B & C and do we need to go through security again in IAH as part of the connection process?

     

    Sorry, meant MSY

     

    And I am flying with United on Thanksgiving weekend !!!

     

    No, you do not need to go through security. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    Hello, I am flying easyjet between Edinburgh and Amsterdam, and then delta from Amsterdam to Minneapolis. I'm assuming I need to go thru passport control to the baggage claim hall, then get my bags, check them with delta/klm and go back thru immigration? I have 4.5 hours but want to confirm that it what I need to do. Thank you!

     

    Yes, you have the procedure correct.

     

  • What tro do in a 7 hr layover between terminal 2 and 4...?

    We are coming in on Delta at 2:30 pm Terminal 2 we have to get our bags and then get on train to terminal 4..are there carts to help us? We then have to recheck bags at Emirates checkin and go thru security--is there any place to go in Terminal 4 to hang out?

     

    T4 is the largest of the JFK terminals - which recently added a lot of restaurants & shops. The Xpress Spa is located at post-security gates A2, A4, B24 B25.

    I land at terminal b at 1:35 and leave from C at 2:20. Do I have to go through security again? Should I be fine?

     

    On arrival a DFW, at TB take the free Skylink train located between gates B1-B19 & B20-B39, to TC, arriving between gates C12-C15 & C24-C27 - a five-minute ride.

     

    The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security. You have enough time.

     

  • Is 2 hours enought time EWR to MCO?

    We're arriving from Glasgow, Scotland into EWR on Icelandair flight (Terminal B?) at 19.00 - then out to MCO with United at 21.00. Will the 2 hours be enough time to make the connection?

     

    On arrival at Terminal B of EWR, you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bags. NOTE: While Iceland will Arrive at Terminal B (TB), United uses TC for its departures (check-in levels 2 & 3), while United Express uses both TA & TC for its departures. If you bought separate tickets find out if Iceland will transfer your bags to your United flight - if not, you need, after Customs clearance, pick up your bag & check it in which United or United Express. If you need to transfer from TB to TC, you need to take the AirTrain (follow signs), but will have to go through security check at TC before proceeding to connecting gate. 2 hrs. transfer time should be enough. Be warned - TSA arrivals process can be trying at EWR (rude personnel there) - keep you cool!

     

    Thanks for such a comprehensive and informative reply, Susep14. I'll contact Iceland first thing in the morning to find out if they would transfer our bags to our United flight - I had no idea that there was even the possibility of such an arrangement between airlines. Do you know if there is any way I can establish which terminal the onward flight will be leaving from, other than phoning UA? Thanks again.

     

    Your flight to Orlando will leave from Terminal C. Even if you can get your bags tagged through to Orlando you will still have to claim them to go through US Customs.

     

    Thanks Zap. If I can't get the baggage tagged through to MCO, should I be able to get through passport check on arrival at TB, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance, re-check-in bags and get to the boarding gate in TC in under 2 hours ? It sounds like a lengthy procedure.

     

    It's doable but it will be tough.

     

  • Can we make it

    Arriving to Frankfurt from Budapest to gate 1-A Plus with a connecting flight from Z54 to Dulles. Only have a 45minute layover. Think we can make it?

     

    Frankfurt Airport has 2 main terminals T1 & T2. T1 has Piers/ Concourses B & C (with T1B, T1C gates) with a separate Satellite Pier T1A - strictly used for U.S. Arrivals on level 1 (A gates) and US departures on level 2 (Z gates). Depending on your airline, you may arrive at either at T1-B, T1C, T2D or T2E - (i.e., if arriving at T2E, your arrivals gate could be one of the E2 - E26 gates). I suggest you open www.ifly.com/fra, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS (left) & scroll down to the detailed text, paying attention to 'Transferring to another Flight/ Terminal' & 'TERMINAL DETAILS'. Yes you can make it in 45 mins.

     

  • a connection through LAX

    I will arrive at LAX at 2.10pm coming from Abu Dhabi in terminal B.we are a family of four and this is our first trip to USA as immigrants .then we have connection by terminal 4 to SMF at 4.50pm .Is it enough time ?and do we need to claim our baggage in LAX at first ...thanks

     

    I purchased my tickets together

     

    LAX does not have a Terminal B. You will arrive at the Tom Bradley International Terminal. When you arrive you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then follow the sign for connecting passengers to the baggage re-check desks. Then you will exit the TBIT, walk to the right, the next building you come to will be Terminal 4. You will go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

  • From Term A to TerB ticket counter, need to go through Security first?
    Sep 28, 2014

    I have 1:20 from arrival in Term A, gate 17-19 to get to my United flight in Term B. I need to check 2 bags and get boarding passes at Untied in Term B. Do I really need to go through Security before I check my bags at the Untied ticket counter? Basically, is this enough time?

     

    What airline are you flying into Terminal A? United has a check in counter at Terminal A. You can probably use that. Then you will go back through security in Terminal A and then take the TerminaLink train to Terminal B (if that is actually where you are departing).

     

  • Arriving from Canada going on to Manzanillo, Mexico

    My flight from Canada arrives LAX 08:49am at Terminal 6 and my onward flight to Manzanillo Mexico is from Terminal 5 at 10:05am - only 1:16 hrs later. Do I have enough time??

     

    Did you buy separate tickets or did you buy your tickets together? If you purchased tickets together and where you are coming from in Canada has US Immigration Immigration pre-clearance, yes, you will have enough time. If you purchased separate tickets or are coming from somewhere without pre-clearance it will be very difficult for you to make your transfer. T5 and T6 are connected inside security by a tunnel.

     

    Many thanks for your good input. I did get my tickets together from Delta, and I think I can get pre-clearance in Canada. You've put my mind at ease!
