    Hi. I bought a ticket from Mexico to Madrid with layover in Atlanta of 1 hour 49 minutes. Will this be enough time to catch the last plane? Thank you

     

    Yes, that should barely be enough time. You will arrive in concourse E/F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, and then go through security and to your departure gate, in the same concourses.

     

    probably not. we had 90 minutes last night and it took more than 60, just to get through immigration. Then grab bags and through customs, 5 minutes, recheck bag, 2 minutes, then go through security again, about 300 people through a single security line. another 20 minutes, down to the train, 2 minutes, over to B terminal, 3 minutes, up to B, ran to gate 34...end of the building of course...arrive at landing + 90 minutes and gate was closed even with 'final boarding' still showing on sign. us, along with 20 others were closed out and had to stay in Atlanta overnigjt. Delta is evil.

    I am flying to heathrow from boise via Seattle. Boise to seattle is one Alaskan airlines a d seattle to heathrow is one delta. The flights were booked together. What terminals do they arrive and depart from? Will I need to check out my baggage and check it in in again? Many thanks

     

    Seattle only has one terminal. Your flight from Boise will arrive at concourse C, D, or N. You will depart to London from the S Satellite. No you will not have to claim your luggage in Seattle. You will just take the Underground train to the S Satellite.

     

  • Connecting PHL to CVG

    My flight has been delayed flying from Manchester UK to PHL to catch a connecting flight to Cincinnati CVG and now only have 50 mins layover. I have to check bags and go through customs. Is that enough time ?

     

    No, that is not enough time. If your flight is not today, you need to contact US Airways or your travel agent to request a different connection. If it is today you will just have to try it and hope that you arrive in Philadelphia early or your CVG flight is delayed or you will be rebooked to CVG once you arrive in PHL.

    Hi I am flying from Salt Lake City to New York via ORD. Both my flights are UA. The time difference between the flights is 40 min.will I be able to connect?

     

    Yes, you just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

  • how to transfer from TBIT to Delta Terminal at LAX

    i'm arriving on KAL flight from PDG to LAX arriving at TBIT at 1:50PM. I have a connecting flight from Delta to my hometown departing at 6:20PM. questions? Do i clear security at TBIT and collect my bags at baggage claim and transfer and check in and check bags at Delta? any way I can linger in the KAL lounge at TBIT ? How does KAL lounge compare with Delta lounge in Delta terminal? any advice on how to spend my time there? thanks all.

     

    sorry. super late. correction. I'm traveling from Seoul ICN on KAL arriving at TBIT - LAX at 1:50PM. Then onto Delta flight 5684 from LAX to SAN departing at 6:20PM.

     

    upon arrival in the TBIT, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and then if your tickets were purchased together and tagged through to your final destination, follow the signs for connecting passengers and re-check them at the transfer desk. The Delta Sky Clubs are pretty nice. I would proceed to the SkyClub in Terminal 5 if you have access.

     

    thank you so much for the advice, ZAP.

    I'm flying into SFO on virgin arriving at 8:30 and need to get a United flight to Victoria at 9:20. I'll have my bag but need to get between the gates/terminals. Do I need to go back through security or can I go directly?

     

    Yes, you will need to go through security. The terminals are not connected inside security. Also, if you are not able to check in online for your United flight (because you may not be able to because it's an International Flight and your passport details must be confirmed). You will have to hurry to a United counter to do so in order to get there before the check-in cutoff.

    Hi I am flying from Orlando to Los angeles by spirit airlines with a flight change at dfw. Do I need to claim my baggage at dfw? Is the time difference of 35 min sufficient at dfw for the next spirit airlines flight from the same terminal. I am traveling with a 4 yr old kid

     

    No, you will not have to claim your baggage. That should be enough time if your flight from Orlando is on-time.

    Hi, I found a flight that arrives (from Europe) at JFK T1 and my next domestic flight (to Dallas) in the same terminal JFK T1 is 53 minutes after that. Is this normal there?

     

    No flights to Dallas leave from T1. 53 minutes is not enough time to make an International to Domestic connection at JFK. What airlines are you flying?

     

    Maybe it was not Dallas, the flights are not available anymore to check, but it was: Helsinki - JFK - ??? (USA) - Lima. with only 53 minutes "waiting" (actually running) in JFK. Thank you for your reply :)

     

    Ah... yes, all flights were from American Airlines.

     

    American Airlines uses T8. But still, 53 minutes is insufficient. You need to contact your travel agent and fix this.

    Im arriving from bogota to calgary, conection IHA . I would like to know what it os the terminal that iwill land (united) do i have to change terminal? Thanks!

     

    You will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration and Customs, then go through security and to your departure gate which will be in Terminal C or E (they are directly connected to each other). You should not have to claim your bags since you are on an International to International connection but confirm that with the United agents in Bogota and Houston.

     

    At YYC you clear customs prior to arriving in Houston. The poster prior to this comment is incorrect. After you clear customs in Calgary it'll be exactly like a domestic flight in the US. Simply get off the plane and go to your connecting hate. Checked luggage will follow you.

     

    The poster is flying from Bogota to Calgary, not the other way around. Upon arrival from Bogota, he or she will have to go through US Immigration and Customs in Houston.

    Where is a good place for people arriving at the airport on a United flight and a Delta flight to meet to go into the City together?

     

    You will use the same immigration hall, so you can meet in the immigration hall at one of your flight's baggage claims.

    Arriving from BOS at 10:41am on American, and connecting to Alaska to PDX at 1:20pm. Should be plenty of time, right? I booked the itinerary straight through Alaska.

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. You can even walk from Terminal 4 where you will arrive to Terminal 6 where you will depart inside security via tunnels now.

     

    Is that better than the bus I've heard about?

     

    Yes, it is.

     

    Thanks so much!

     

  • Flying from Athens through Rome

    Arriving at FCO at 10 am on a Saturday. Aegean airlines from Athens. Transferring to United flight to WA DC. Only a 50 minute layover. Is this possible???

     

    Tickets purchased separately or together? Separately it is impossible. If together and your bags are tagged through to IAD, you can go to the United gate in the T3 satellite and have your credentials checked after you go through schngen exit passport control and you just might be able to make it.

    I am American citizen and traveling from YVR-ZGR via ORD. Do I have to go through custom and immigration and recheck my bags? I have 2.5 hours between flights. Thank you

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. If all your tickets were purchased together you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Chicago.

     

  • Connecting flight with duty free alcohal

    I have a connecting flight today from Japan->Ohara then Ohara->Toronto. The stopover is 4 hours. Im told i need to collect my bags in Ohara so im wondering if I can recheck my bags with alcohol I purchased in Japan in my bag?

     

    Yes, after you clear customs and before you re-check your bags at the transfer desk you can (and should) put your duty-free liquor purchases into your checked bag. You will have to go through security before your flight to Toronto and can't carry a bottle of liquor through security.
