    We are British Passport Holders flying from Vegas to Cabo with a 1hr 9min connection in Phoenix all flights with US Airways - is this enough time & will we have to collect our baggage at Phoenix & check it in again? First time in USA & first time on internal flights so not sure how it works? Thank you

     

    No, you won't have to collect your baggage or do anything in Phoenix except go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will go through Mexican Immigration and customs when you get to Cabo.

    My mother will be flying from Roissy CDG United 914 and make a connection to Tampa United 1602. I understand she will have to go thru immigr and customs, but will she have to leave the security zone for connection and reenter thru TSA again. She is 84 and absolutely paniqued by the idea that she won't go thru her beloved Atlanta airport this time. can you tell me what will be her itinerary in Dulles

     

    Yes, she will have to go through security again after she re-checks her bags with United after clearing customs. However, she will be in a separate facility in the basement of the D concourse so there's no way for her to get lost, she just has to follow the signs for connecting passengers and she will go through security.

     

    Thank you ZAP. I have printed the airport map for her and I will be following her on the phone when she arrives

    Hello, I have a 45min connection time, I'm arriving from Phoenix (though AA) and going to Paris (also through AA). Is it enough time? Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Both flights will be in Terminal 3 and all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. It doesn't leave much time for delays though.

    Is 1 hour between terminal c to a enough time to connect?

     

    IAD only has one terminal A and C are just concourses (gate areas). Yes, that should be plenty of time. A and C are connected inside security by the Aerotrain.

    Hi I have a flight from Houston to Toronto. But I have a two transfers on the way. One of them is ORD to New York. Both flights are in same terminal but my transit time is only 50 minutes. Will that be enough time?

     

    Yes, 50 minutes should be plenty of time if your first flight is on-time.

     

    Thank you for the prompt response. I just have a follow-up question. If the first flight was late for any reason. Whom should I contact and will they arrange another flight to my final destination within the same day? Thank you.

     

    You should be automatically rebooked. United also has a customer service center for customers who have missed connections or cancelled flights inside security in Concourse C.

    Hi, I have 95 mins connection time, arriving T1 (united express) and leaving T5 (aerlingus), is that enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Note that some United Express flights use T2 which will make your connection even easier. United should be able to check your bags through to Aer Lingus and issue your Aer Lingus boarding pass as long as you purchased your tickets together. You will have to take the ATS train from T1 or T2 to T5 and then go through security.

     

  • Passport Control at CDG

    We are flying Air France from Boston to Budapest (Schengen country). We arrive at Terminal 2E and will transfer to 2F. We are flying Premium Economy, so have access to Sky Priority lanes. My understanding is that we have to go through passport control but our bags are checked through to Budapest. My concern is that we only have 70 minutes between flights- a legal connection as far as Air France is concerned, but I am concerned about the time it would take to be processed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

     

    Yes, you have the procedure correct. You should have enough time, especially with Sky Priority.

    I am flying from Edinburgh -Newark - Orlando (MCO) all flights with Untied Airlines , will my luggage go straight through to Orlando or will I have to pick it up and recheck in at Newark? Also I have 2 1/2 hrs Between flights at Newark will that be enough time to get through Emigration pick luggage ( if needed) and get from TB- TC ? Thanks

     

    You will arrive in either Terminal B or Terminal C, go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, then immediately re-check your bags with United. Then if you arrived in Terminal B, you will take the AirTrain to Terminal C. Then you will go through security and to your gate. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    Arriving at ORD on a domestic United flight from Denver (I do not know what terminal) and connecting to a United codeshare on Air Canada Express Sky Regional (again I do not know terminal). Is 45 mins sufficient for me to connect? - and my checked bag? Will both flights be in the same terminal?

     

    Your first flight will arrive in Terminal 1, either the B or C concourse. The second flight will leave from Terminal 2, in the first few gates of concourse E. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time but there's very little time for delays. There is a walkway between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 inside security. Just follow the signs.

    Traveling from chicago to Houston international airport terminal C and transfer to terminal E to morelia, Is .30 minutes enough time to go from terminal C to terminal E ?

     

    Yes, it is enough time if your first flight is on-time but leaves little to no time in the case of delays.

    Hi, I have flight from DFW to JFK (using Delta) arriving at 2:44pm and then to Tel Aviv (using ElAl) leaving at 7:00pm. Tickets were bought separately. 1. Can I ask Delta to issue both tickets at DFW? 2. will it be enough connection time? 3. should I check out luggage and check in again at JFK? if yes, are there any tips to simplify the process?

     

    Delta cannot issue your El Al boarding pass as they will not have access to your reservation. Yes, you will have to transfer your baggage yourself. You will have to claim it in T2 or T4 when you arrive, take it on the AirTrain to T4 (if you arrive in T2), then take it to the El Al counter to check to TLV. You should have plenty of time as long as your first flight is anywhere close to on-time.

     

    Thank you! Do you know if there are any visual tours: of the Terminal 2 - how to get your luggage from luggage claim and Terminal 4 - how to pass the security?

     

    There are no visual tours, just plenty of maps. The route to security is always very clearly marked and very obvious. There will be overhead signs pointing the way to everything.

    Arriving on a connecting flight at Dallas at 1600 terminal B transferring to terminal D to catch flight to London at 16.50 . is 50 mins sufficient time to make this connection.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security and all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Hi, I will land in International Terminal E from London Heathrow at 14:40 with British Airways. We are then catching a United flight at 15:54 to Cancun, is that enough time to connect to this flight? I'm not sure which terminal the Cancun flight will leave from. Many thanks

     

    Your British Airways flight will actually arrive in D. Your Cancun flight will leave from E. That is NOT enough time as you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, get your United boarding passes, and re-check your bags, and go through security. 1 hr 14 mins is totally not enough time to do all that.

     

  • AA flights connections

    Hi, I'll be arriving in Miami from Argentina in an AA flight and 2 1/2 hours later I have another flight to my final destination in Cancun, also with AA. I would probably check a bag in Argentina to get it in Cancun. Will AA let me do that or will I have to pick up my bag and go through the check in again even if I'm flying with the same airline? I understand I might have to pass through custums but Is there a transit area for passengers connecting with the same airline? Would you recommend taking a carry on instead of checking a bag for this trip to Cancun via Miami? Thank you!

     

    Yes, you will have to claim your bag to go through US Customs in Miami, and yes, you will have to go through US Immigration and Customs in Miami. You should have enough time even with a checked bag, but if you do want to save some time, only taking a carry-on will save you some time in your connection.

     

    Thank you!!
