  • international arrival 2:50min lay over
    Mar 18, 2014
    I am arriving at JFK at 22:00 on April 5th (Terminal 4) from Bogotá, Colombia and have a flight connection. My next flight will be departing at 00:50 to Seoul from terminal 1. Is that time enoguh to reach my next flight on time?. How easy is to move from terminal 1 to terminal 4? Thank you


    It should be enough time. All Terminals are connected outside security by the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train. You will need approximately 1 hour to get through immigration and customs and 45 minutes to get to T1 and through security. So there's not much time for delays but you should have enough time.


  • San Francisco to Toronto 45 min connection enough time?
    Mar 18, 2014
    Is 45 minutes enough time to connect from a United flight from SFO to Air Canada to Toronto on a Sunday morning? Thanks!


    It should be enough time. You will arrive on the B concourse and depart on the A concourse - they are connected inside security by an underground train.


  • TBIT to T4
    Mar 18, 2014
    international fly arrive TBIT. After clear custom check, do I have to walk out TBIT then go to new connection to T4. Do there have any sign to show me the direction from TBIT to T4( new connection). Do I need to go through security again. How long it (security) take.


    Any time you arrive internationally and have to go through immigration you have to go through security afterwards. The easiest way to get to T4 is upon exiting the TBIT, walk right (with the flow of traffic) along the lower level to the next terminal building, that will be T4.


  • Gates in Terminal B
    Mar 18, 2014
    My flight arrives at Gate B24 and departs from Gate B85. On the Terminal map I do not see Gate B24. Am I not seeing it?


    Use the new map provided by United.


  • 1 hour 20 min connection time for 16 years old child travel alone
    Mar 18, 2014
    US citizen flying from Barcelona to Frankfurt on a Lufthansa flight. Have 1 hour and 20 to connect to a United Airline Flight going to Los Angeles, CA. Is this enough time for that connection?


    Actually, Frankfurt-LAX is a Luftansa flight as well, United does not fly that route. 80 minutes should be enough time.


  • LAS -> LAX -> MSP
    Mar 19, 2014
    My flight arrives from Las Vegas at 11:25 and I have a flight to MSP @ 1:00. Will I have enough time to make it from Terminal 4 to Terminal 5 or do I need to see if I can get an earlier flight from LAS to LAX?


    What airlines are you flying? Will you have checked bags?


    LAS -> LAX is American and LAX -> MSP is Delta and no on the checked bags. Everything is carry on.


    Then you should have enough time if your first flight is on-time. Be sure to check in online for your Delta flight before you leave Las Vegas.


  • Rome to Istanbul
    Mar 17, 2014
    Arrive at FCO 9:25 am from Chicago in August. Will we be able to make a connection to Turkish Airlines flight at 10:55 am? That's 1 1/2 hours.


    We're your tickets bought on one reservation or separate? That will be very difficult.


  • Is 2 hours enough time??
    Mar 18, 2014
    Hi, I have a quick question. I have the below listed itinerary. Since both the flights are operated by United, I guess I need not change terminals. But, would 2 hrs be enough for me and do I need to go through security gate again. Thanks for the help. UA 279 TPA IAD 156P 411P UA 976 IAD DXB 610P 335P+1


    All you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. No security. You should have plenty of time.


    Thanks ZAP for the quick response.


  • Tight connection at IAD with family
    Mar 27, 2014
    ZAP and other IAD experts, I'm travelling with wife and 9 year old daughter from Seattle to Buffalo with a layover at IAD of 51 minutes. It's a part of one reservation with United. I guess I'll be arriving at terminal D at 9PM and taking off on a commuter plane from terminal A at 9:51 to BUF. Now I realize it may not be doable with carry on luggage and family. Can you guys suggest the best way to make this connection as it's the last flight to BUF that day. Thank you!


    If your first flight is on-time 51 minutes should be plenty of time. C/D and A are connected by the mobile lounges and AeroTrain.


    Thank you ZAP ! Would you know which option will be faster and easier to find. Also , so the mobile lounges operate at night between 9 and 10pm?


    It depends where your flight from Seattle arrives which will be quicker. It could arrive at any gate in C or D. The lounges should still be running then.


    I believe the incoming flight arrives at D and the next flight is from A1 in 51 minutes. With T-15 rule, I effectively have about 30 minutes.


  • Connection in Rome from US to Naples
    Mar 18, 2014
    If I am coming in from Detroit, US and connecting to Naples, will I have to claim my bags and go through Customs/Immigration, or will I be able to check them through to Naples and go through Customs/Immigration there? Would 1hr 15min be long enough if I need to go through C/I in FCO?


    You will have to go through immigration. 1:15 should be enough time but is cutting it close. Luckily if you miss your flight there are lots of Alitalia flights from Rome to Naples.


    Thanks for the quick response!


  • Help with Timining Question
    Mar 20, 2014
    Can my mother leave terminal E at 9:05 pm and board her 9:30 pm flight in terminal B?


    Since you're saying it's arriving in Terminal E, does that mean it's an international flight? If so, no way. If it is one of the few domestic flights arriving in E, then it would be very difficult but possible. Either way it's not an allowable connection by United.


    It is complicated. My daughter flew alone to Houston and met my mom. They flew elsewhere together. They end up back at Houston for separate flights w one leaving from terminal e at 9 and one leaving from terminal b at 9:30


    OK, in that instance, she can leave Terminal E when the other one boards, so she'll have more than 25 minutes. However, it will take about 15-20 minutes to get from E to B so she should have that in mind.


  • Connecting between United Airlines and US Airways
    Mar 17, 2014
    I'm arriving at FLL Terminal 1 on United Airlines and departing on US Airways from Terminal 3 for an domestic flight to Philadelphia. Is 3 hours enough time to make the connection if we have checked baggage that we have to check out from UA and then check in again with US Airways?


    Yes, that should be enough time. It's a bit of a walk but FLL isn't a huge airport.


  • Immigration clearance
    Mar 17, 2014
    I will be returning to the USA from Frankfurt on a Sunday Evening. How long does it take to go through the immigration? My incoming flight , Lufthansa, arrives at 3:10 PM and the connecting flight . United flight to Pittsburgh is at 4:50 PM. This is a 1: 40 gap between the arrival & the departure. Is this enough time. What are the options if I miss the flight ? Any ideas? By the way, I am a US citizen, so the imigration lines should not be too long I suppose


    Yes, that should be enough time. If you miss your connection United will rebook you on their next flight to Pittsburgh.


  • Pit to Atl to Cun
    Mar 17, 2014
    We arrive and have 52 minutes to make connection. Traveling AirTran on both legs of the journey. Will we have enough time?


    You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time. All Southwest/Airtran flights at ATL are on the same concourse.
