  • Connection from SYD (UA) to BOG (AV)
    Apr 16, 2015
    I arrive from SYD at 6:30 AM flight to connect to AV at 8:45 to Bogota .. will 2:25 connecting time be sufficient ?


    That should be enough time but it doesn't leave much time if your first flight is delayed. You will likely arrive in the International Terminal (United flights from Australia have been arriving there recently), go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through Customs, then if you purchased your tickets together and your bags are tagged through to BOG, follow the signs for connecting passengers and re-check your bags at the transfer desk, otherwise go to the left out of the terminal and take your bags with you to Terminal 2 where you will have to re-check your bags with Avianca at the check in counter.


  • KLM Frankfurt to EasyJet Venice
    Apr 16, 2015
    We are trying to get from Frankfurt (Heidelberg) to Venice. How much time would we need to make a connection from a KLM flight from Frankfurt to an EasyJet flight to Venice. Do we have to collect our luggage? How many check points?


    Yes, you will have to claim your baggage from KLM then re-check it with EasyJet. You would need at least 90 minutes, preferably 2 hours for your transfer.


  • Icelandair arrival then United departure
    Apr 16, 2015
    I purchased 2 separate tickets for travel on 5/27: one is from Icelandair, arriving JFK at 12:30pm, then depart JFK on United at 2pm. Would I have enough time to clear customs, pick up baggage, check in, go through security for the 2pm United flight? Both airlines are located in Terminal 7. Please advise. Thanks!


    You will have to hope your Icelandair flight is on-time and lines at customs and Immigration are short in order to make it.


  • Cancun to Johannesburg with 1 hour 20 minute layover in IAD
    Apr 16, 2015
    Hello! I know this is going to be tight, but is it possible? I land in IAD from Cancun on United. I have Global Entry and will not have to wait for any checked bags. Do you think I can land in Concourse C, go through immigration, and then get back through security to catch a flight on South African Airways at Concourse B, all in 1 hour and 20 minutes? I assume after going though immigration I have to go through security again right?


    Without checked bags and with Gloal Entry I do think it is possible. Obviously very little time to spare if the Cancun flight is delayed though.


  • connection time
    Apr 16, 2015
    is 30 min enough time to get from get A64 to A6 at DTW?


    Yes, there is a train from one end of the A concourse to the other that can get you there in less than 10 minutes. It obviously leaves little time to spare if the first flight is delayed.


  • Can you walk from D to E?
    Apr 16, 2015
    Can you walk behind security from Terminal D to Terminal E?


    Yes, you can. However, if you are arriving in Terminal D, it means you will be arriving on an International flight and have to go through US Immigration and Customs, which means you will be outside security when that process is finished.




  • PTY To LA (New Orleans)
    Apr 16, 2015
    Hello, We will be flying coming from Panama (PTY), Landing In Houston and then leaving to New Orleans (LA) with 2 adults and 2 children. Our proposed layover will be 1:25 minutes with United. Will there be enough time to catch the second flight?


    That is 5 minutes shorter than the recommended time for that connection. However, it is likely possible and United flies lots of flights from IAH to New Orleans that you can be rebooked on if you miss your connection.


  • JFK Finnair Terminal 8 to JetBlue Terminal 5
    Apr 16, 2015
    I will be arriving at JFK, 3:50 p.m. at Terminal 8 and would like to make a connecting reservation with JetBlue departing at 5:55 p.m. on a Sunday afternoon in August. Will I have enough time to get my bags, get through immigration and customs and make it to Terminal 5 to check my bag and get through security? I am not familiar with JFK so there will be disorientation to take into consideration as well. Thanks


    That would probably be barely possible. It would definitely be pushing it if there are any delays at all.


  • Amsterdam-Frankfurt-Houston
    Apr 16, 2015
    Hello, I am traveling from Amsterdam to Houston via Frankfurt and have only 50 minutes to catch my flight to Houston from Frankfurt Airport. Will this be enough? Thanks!


    That should be enough time.


  • help with terminals
    Apr 16, 2015
    Hi, my parents will travel from Moscow to jfk and have connect flight to Richmond VA. What arrival terminal and what terminal parents need for Richmond VA. My parents old and not speak English. If I order wheelchair person can he help my parents go from one terminal to another?


    I can't answer your question unless you can tell me what airlines your parents are flying.


  • Houston-Atlanta-Jamaica
    Apr 16, 2015
    Flying from Houston to Atlanta and then to Jamaica. I see we only have 1 hour layover in Atlanta. Is this enough time to change terminals for international flight?


    You don't actually have to change terminals. You just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse in E or F. You have enough time.


  • 1 hour United to Brussels Airlines possible?
    Apr 16, 2015
    I have one hour to get from my United gate (unclear if it's C or D at this point) to Brussels Airlines (gate B). I only have carry-on luggage. Possible?


    Yes, that should be possible. The Aerotrain or Mobile Lounge only takes about 10 minutes.


  • Transfer from Terminal 4 to Terminal 2
    Apr 17, 2015
    Hi there I am flying with Delta from LAX to San Juan, Puerto Rico with a stop over at JFK, all booked together. My flight arrives at Terminal 4 at 5:55am and departs from Terminal 2 at 7:00am so I have 1.05 minute stop over, will this give me enough time to make my connecting flight? Do I need to clear through security again? Does Delta have a shuttle bus for connecting flights? Thank you


    I mean I have 1 hour and 5 minutes connection time


    Most Puerto Rico flights leave from Terminal 4. However, even if it leaves from Terminal 2 you have plenty of time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate and Delta runs a shuttle bus inside security to Terminal 2 if you need to go there.


    My itinerary says it departs from terminal 2, is this subject to change? That sounds perfect so I won't need to go through security again if I catch the shuttle bus between terminals? How often does the shuttle bus run?


    Yes, it is subject to change. The shuttle bus runs almost constantly. Yes, you won't have to go through security at JFK even if you have to take the shuttle bus.


  • is 3hrs enough to transit

    Thank you


  • From Helsinki to san Fransisco
    Apr 17, 2015
    I will be flying from Helsinki and trying to catch a connecting flight to San Fransisco. I have 1 hour 40 minutes time for that (arrival 10.15, departure 11.15). I arrive to T3 and I have to reach T5. What is the quickest way and route?


    Did you purchase two separate tickets or one ticket together? If one ticket you don't actually have to go to Terminal 5, you will just go to your departure gate in the T3 satellite and present yourself at the gate for the security checks they would do in T5.


    I have one ticket together. But how can it be that I won't have to go to T5 even if American Airlines leaves from that terminal?


    No flights leave from T5. T5 is just a check-in and security processing center for US airlines and El Al. After clearing security in T5, passengers are bused to the T3 satellite.


    So one more question: When I'll arrive in terminal 3. Should I or should I not go to T5 or just to my departure gate? Thank you for your patience!


    You should not have to go to Terminal 5 if your bags are checked through to your final destination.
