  • 52 minute stopover in Ohare
    Sep 13, 2014
    3
    I am trying to purchase a flight for November. The flight I am looking at would have me flying from Des Moines to Ohare (for a 52 minute stopover) and then to Heathrow (London), with all my flights going from United which I believe lands and departs from Terminal 1 in Ohare. I will not have check baggage, only carryon. Is the 52 minute stopover enough time to make my connection to my intl flight via United to Heathrow? Will I have to go through customs again before boarding my intl flight? I don't want to purchase a flight i might not be able to actually work, and I obviously don't want to miss my flight. Thank you

     

    You do not have to go through US Customs when leaving the US. All you will have to do in ORD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Your DSM flight will arrive in Terminal 1 or Terminal 2. Your LHR flight will depart from Terminal 1. Terminal 1 and 2 are connected inside security by a walkway. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. 52 minutes should be enough time.

     

    And if there are any delays on the DSM flight arrival into Ohare--will that cause any issues?

     

    You could be about 25-30 minutes late into O'hare and still be OK. If you're not on the last flight of the evening to London, you will be rebooked on the next flight. United has 3 daily O'Hare-London flights.

     

  • Arriving from SXM T4 with DL need to transfer to T 1 KE to ICN

    Holding Norwegian Passport arriving at T 4 JFK from SXM need KE flt T 1 to ICN/SGN.Through flts with Skyteam tickets.Do I need to checkin again at JFK for Immigration at JFK for ICN ? Is it domestic between SXM/JFK? How do I transfer T-4 to T-1 ?

     

    You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your luggage, and go through US CUstoms, then re-check your bags in T4 when you arrive from SXM. Then you will take the AirTrain from T4 to T1 and go through security and to your departure gate.

     

    Thank you so much for the vital information. It will certainly help me prepare better, to get my connection from T-4 to T-1.

     

  • Do I need to claim luggage at ORD? (Flying from YUL to ORD to ICN)
    Sep 13, 2014

    Hi, I was just wondering if I need to claim my luggage once I arrive at the ORD airport (terminal 2) to then catch my other flight to ICN in South Korea (Terminal 5). I'm travelling from YUL (Canada) to ORD with Air Canada, then from ORD to ICN with Asiana Airlines. Do I have to claim my luggage then? I'm not sure how it works. I have a 2 hr 25 min layover. And the other way around, do I need to claim my luggage at the ORD airport when I travel from ICN to ORD with Asiana Airlines, and then ORD to YUL with Air Canada? Thanks in advance!!!

     

    On your way to Seoul you will not have to claim your luggage in ORD if you purchased your tickets together. AC should be able to tag your bags through to Asiana and you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal. You will however take the ATS Train from Terminal 2 to Terminal 5 and go through security. On the way back, you will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the re-check desk then you will take the ATS Train from T5 to T2 and go through security.

     

    I bought them on expedia on the same itinerary so it's purchased together right? Thank you so much for your help!!!!

     

    Yes, that means it's purchased together.

     

    Thanks a bunch!

  • NZ-LAX-NYC

    Hi, we're looking at arriving at LAX at 11.45 am mid Dec on Air NZ. We're US citizens but considering a JetBlue flight to JFK at 2.00pm.Tickets will be bought separately so will need to recheck baggage. Looks like you can do an online checkin with Jet Blue but still need to drop off baggage somewhere at JetBlue. Is this time-frame do-able at that time of day/year? Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer!

     

    That should be doable. That's about the minimum amount of connection I'd recommend for that kind of a connection where you have to transfer bags yourself.

     

    Thanks very much for the speedy reply! Just one more question, Air NZ currently comes into Terminal 2, but I read somewhere they are supposed to move to Tom Bradley this year. Jet Blue is in Terminal 3, so will it make much difference to how long it takes to walk if they move before we travel?

     

    Shouldn't make a difference, the walk from the TBIT to T3 is about the same as the walk from T2 to T3.

     

  • Faster Way through US CBP

    Hi. US CBP has a faster way to get through customs. Mobile Passport is a free mobile app that lets you access an express line through passport control. Just make sure you enter your last name, then first and middle names exactly as in your passport! Mobile Passport is on iTunes and at www.mobilepassport.us.

     

  • DFW-FRA-PRG with 60 minute layover?
    Sep 12, 2014

    Arriving on American Airlines from Dallas at 8:30 am and need to transfer to Czech Airlines flight to Prague departing at 9:30 am. It is 60 minutes and these are two different tickets (not a single itinerary). We will only have hand luggage. We also are holding a car rental reservation to drive to Prague if we miss the flight. If there is a 60% chance or higher that we can make the connection, we will buy the Prague flight tickets and hope to make it, and if not we will drive. But if there is less than a 60% chance we'll just drive and not waste the money on plane tickets that we probably won't use. Should we buy the tickets to Prague or just forget about it and drive?

     

    I think it's very unlikely you could make that connection.

     

  • Connecting to Turkey at terminal D

    Today I will be arriving to Houstons airport fron Mex terminal D. I need to catch another flight to turkey Terminal D what shall I do with my baggagge? I do not have my boarding pass

     

    You will have to claim your baggage to pass through US Customs. If you purchased separate tickets you will then have to take it to the Turkish Airlines check-in counter to check for your flight to Istanbul. I hope you have at least 2.5 hours for your connection because that is what is necessary.

     

  • BWI - IAH - YEG (Connect time 1hr 15 mins, enough?)

    I'm flying from Baltimore (BWI) to Edmonton (YEG) with connecting flight time of 1hr 15 mins at IAH. Is this time enough? Please let me know. Many thanks.

     

    Forgot to mention that it's United Flight throughout.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. If you have to change terminals the TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.

     

  • coneection time and luggage in IAD

    The flight from LPB to IAD -PEK , there is 1 hour 40 mins connection time in IAD , is it need to go to customer to check the luggage ?

     

    LBP is Long Banga, Malaysia. I doubt you are flying all the way to Washington DC to fly back to Asia to Beijing. Where are you coming from? If it's domestic and you purchased one ticket you will not have to claim your bags in IAD.

     

    Sorry - I see that LPB is La Paz, Bolivia. Is that your origin? If so there are no nonstop flights between La Paz and IAD. Where are you entering the US?

     

    is lpb via BOG to IAD by AVIANCA the to PEK by airchina , want to know if need to get luggage out and 1:40 connection time is enough or not

     

    Yes, you will arrive in the International Arrivals Building, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk (if they are tagged through to PEK), then go through security and take the aerotrain to your departure gate in concourse A. If your BOG-IAD and IAD-PEK are on separate tickets you will have to take your bags to the Air China check-in counter and will have a tough time making your connection.

  • 1 hour 20 minute connection

    I am arriving into Chicago at 10.40 in terminal 5 from the UK and have a connection at terminal 1, 1 hour 20 minutes later will this be plenty of time, i amd flying with United Airlines

     

    No, that is below the minimum connection time for such a connection (90 minutes is the minimum time). It's possible but it will be risky and have no spare time for any delays.

     

    do i have to collect my luggage as i am still flying with the same airline

     

    Yes, you have to claim your luggage to go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the re-check counter immediately afterwards.

     

    thank you for your help

    If you are an Indian citizen, yes, you will need a transit visa.
