    Hi, I will be flying from Cleveland to EWR(terminl c) and EWR(terminal b) to Frankfurt. Is it easy to do the connections? I will need to collect my luggage and go through again? because i bought my tickets through Lufthansa but I will use United as well to come EWR but from EWR to Frankfurt I will fly with Lufthansa. Also, I have 2 hours do you think is this enough time?

     

    You will not have to claim your bags in Newark, they will be transferred to your Lufthansa flight. United operates a shuttle bus from their gates in C terminal to the Lufthansa gates in Terminal B inside security. You will have plenty of time.

    I will be arriving from Paris and want to fly to Corpus Christi. How much time is good for a connecting flight and allow for customs

     

    If you are buying two separate tickets I would recommend 3 hours. If you are booking tickets together and you arrive in the country in Houston, 2 hours should be sufficient. If you arrive in the country at another port of entry, you will only need 1 hour in Houston.

    Is 2 hours 20 minutes sufficient time between flights into and out of EWR as above? Will I need to pass through immigration? customs?security? I think both flights use terminal C

     

    Yes, in Newark you will arrive in Terminal B or C, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then if you arrived in Terminal B, take the AirTrain to Terminal C, then go through security and to your departure gate. You have enough time. Make sure that you complete ESTA if you are a citizen of a Visa Waiver Program country or get a US Transit Visa if you are not.

     

  • Worried about making our flight connection

    We will be flying into ATL on Delta from Detroit. I searched for days for the perfect flight with enough layover time in ATL. Found it, booked it. Just received an email telling me now instead of almost 2 hours, it is down to 43 minutes. I will have my 84 year old Mother with me, there is no way she can handle running to find our gate. I wish I knew which gates we would be dealing with. Is there anyway to have a cart/shuttle reserved to take us? Thank you

     

    You can request wheelchair service. Otherwise you can also call Delta and request an earlier flight from Detroit if there is one. There are lots of flights from Detroit to Atlanta on Delta. They should be required to accomodate you as this was an involuntary schedule change.

     

    You can go to the ATL airport website and enter your airline plus flight number (both found on confirmation email/letter) for your arriving and departing flight and it will tell you which gate.

    My husband is coming into the States with his packet from the embassy abroad with his immigrant visa. We will be heading to Phoenix, but JFK will be the first point of entry in the US. Therefore he will have to do whatever it is he needs to with his packet in NY. We have 2 hours between flights. Will that be enough time?

     

    Assuming his tickets were purchased together, that should be enough time.

     

  • From MAN to ZAG, stopped 40min @ MUC, is this enough???

    Hi, I'm flying on 17.04. from Manchester to Zagreb wtih stop in MUC. Flights are LH2503 by LH and LH5998 by Croatia Airlines. This is booked by my company on Lufthansa and it is obvious lufthansa suggestion if you check on LH web. Is 40 min enough to make a connection between flights with only backpack and without checking any bag in. Thanks in advance. Damir

     

    It's probably enough. Munich isn't as big as Frankfurt and you won't be entering the Schengen area so no passport control. It depends on the first flight being on-time though.

     

    Thank you very much. I hope this will be OK,

     

  • MAD --> FCO --> MXP

    I'm thinking of purchasing a ticket from MAD to MXP via FCO, all operated by Alitalia. I have 65 minutes to make my connection in FCO. Is this enough time? I'm a little worried because this is the last flight from FCO to MXP for the day, and I have a flight booked on another airline/ticket the following morning out of MXP that I can't miss.

     

    Also, I don't expect to check bags, BUT if Alitalia forces me to check my luggage, will my luggage make it to my connecting flight (to MXP)?

     

    That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time, but as you may know, Alitalia isn't exactly known for being punctual. Both flights will be in Terminal 1 and it should be a very simple connection.

     

  • 1hr 40mins Layover... Is that enough

    I am arriving at Chicago ORD Terminal 5 from Dublin (Aerlingus) at 13.50 my connecting flight to Dallas Fort Worth with United Airlines is at 15.30 in Terminal 2. Is 1hr 40 mins enough time to get to my connecting flight or will I end up missing my flight? I fly in November.

     

    If your tickets were purchased together that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. All you have to do is take the ATS Train from T5 to your departure terminal (check your departure gate first, many DFW flights, even on United Express leave from Terminal 1) and then go through security.

     

    It was all booked together through aer lingus. Do I need to go through customs in Chicago at all? Is it just a matter of rechecking my bag? Thanks for your help. I was in a bit of a panic

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. Your arrival into Chicago will be like a domestic flight. You don't have to do anything with your bag.

     

    That is great news. Thanks for all your help. Hopefully it will all work out.

     

  • Is the time connecting between c and e terminals

    Is there enough time to connect on a domestice arrival on United in terminal C and leaving on an International flight on United in terminal E with only 40 minute connection time.

     

    That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You can walk directly from C to E.

     

    How long is the walk. Worst case scenario.

     

    15 minutes worst case scenario

     

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

     

  • Connecting flight FCO -

    I arrive at FCO (Terminal 3) on 2 June at 12:10 in the afternoon and need to catch the connecting flight to London at 13:30. This only gives me an hour and 20 minutes to make my way through security and to the gate for boarding. I will have no luggage though and I'm hoping this will be enough time to make it there - can anyone advise if this will be enough time? Don't want to miss my flight!

     

    That should be enough time if both flights are on Alitalia. However, it's hard to answer your question without knowing what airlines you are flying.

    I have a flight from Ireland into Terminal E with a connection on JetBlue to Seattle in Terminal C. Aer Lingus says they will check my bags all the way through to Seattle. In Boston will I need to go through customs or any security gates?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ireland. In Boston you will have to go through security in Terminal C.

     

    So I'm hoping to buy some Irish liqueur in the Irish airport to bring back to Seattle so it will be carry on. Since I have to go through security again in Boston will this not be possible?

     

    Correct, that won't be possible.

     

    If you want to buy some liquor in Ireland, buy it at a regular store and put it in your checked baggage.

    Hi, I will be flying from CLT to DEL (via JFK & DXB) on Jetblue B6218 arriving JFK 12:37 PM and then Emirates EK 208 departing 14:30 at Terminal 4. I have connection time of 3 hr and 50 minutes at JFK but as I have never been to JFK so I have few queries: a-) I booked my tickets through Emirates so assuming that I need to check in my luggage at CLT (at Jetblue counter )and will get my luggage at final destination only. No need to recheck in the luggage at JFK. Please suggest b-) From where I need to collect Emirates boarding pass for JFK-DXB and DXB-DEL? Will it be at Emirates check in counter or Will I get all boarding passes at CLT by JetBlue? c-) From CLT I will be landing at Terminal 5 and then I need to come to terminal 4 via Airtrain to catch my international flight but where do I need to go through security check? I know one will be at CLT but before entering terminal 4 at JFK do I need to go through security again? d-) where will be Emirates Check in counter on terminal 4? In case if I need to collect my emirates boarding pass then I may need to contact Emirates check in desk. e-) Where I need to deposit my I94? Will it be at Emirates check in counter or at jetblue counter at CLT? Thanks in advance and for your patience to go over lots of questions from me.

     

    Since you booked all your tickets together, JetBlue may be able to issue you all your boarding passes in Charlotte. If not just go to the Emirates desk in Terminal 4 and you can get your boarding passes there. Yes, you will have to go through security in Terminal 4 at JFK. Paper I-94 forms are no longer used, Emirates will report your exit from the US to the US Immigration authorities. However, if you were given a paper I-94 when you entered (for example if you entered a long time ago), you may still want to give the form to the Emirates agent when you board your flight to Dubai.
