  • BCN-AMS-SFO
    Apr 10, 2015

    Hello, I am traveling from BCN to SFO with a layover in AMS. Both flights are on KLM. My layover in AMS is 65 mins. Will this be enough time to make my connection? What is the process? Do I have to go through security again? Thank you.

     

    All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.

     

  • I hour 50 Minute Layover on an International Flight Home. Enough Time?

    I have a return flight home from Zurich, Switzerland (ZRH) to Greenville/ Spartanburg (GSP) with a layover of 1 hr. 50 min. At Dulles (IAD). Will this be enough time to go through customs? Flight is on a Tuesday.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

     

  • Getting from Concourse A to G with 32 minute connection?
    Apr 10, 2015
    1
    Our flight schedule was changed after we booked, leaving us with 32 minutes to connect from a Delta flight (operated by SkyWest) from ABR to a Delta flight to MCO. Looking at past schedules it looks like we might be going from concourse A to G. I'm hoping that on a Wednesday morning in late April, being the first flight of the morning we shouldn't be delayed, weather permitting. Would you be concerned about this short of a connection. We are traveling with 4 kids and will have gate checked strollers but we are really fast walkers. Would it be helpful to send my husband up ahead and let the connecting gate know we're minutes away or would that not matter at all?

     

    It probably wouldn't matter. You will probably make it assuming your flight is on-time and you move quickly.

     

  • Can I stay in post-security?

    Hi! I am flying in to OHare Frontier to T3 and need to meet my friend in T1 a couple hours later. Can I go to baggage claim and get back into secure area of T1? Or if I carryon instead can I walk thru T3 to T1 without exiting secure areas? thanks!

     

    You cannot get back into the secure area of T1 after going to baggage claim. However, you can walk from T3 to T1 inside security if you only bring a carry on.

    I will be flying into Atlanta from Toronto Arriving at Terminal I @ 10:12. I then fly out of Terminal S on my way to New Orleans @ 11:00. I only have 48 minutes for my connection, will I have enough time and is there a best way for me to get there? Thanks.

     

    You don't actually have to change termianals. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Atlanta is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse (E or F) to your departure concourse (T, A, B, or C). The Plane train runs inside security. It is your best and only route. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    First time flying to US with connections, is 44 mins enough time to change planes? Both flights are with United Edmonton to Austin.

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Edmonton. All United gates in Denver are on Concourse B. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

  • Time between terminals

    WE are arrive on a BA flight from LHR arriving at 1845 and need to connect to probably a JetBlue flight to Boston. Can you tell me the terminals and how long I should set aside for terminal change and check in times. How do I get from terminal to terminal

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 7. JetBlue uses Terminal 5. You could also book on American which uses Terminal 8 and earn BA miles. All terminals are connected outside security by the AirTrain.

     

    Also, if you're purchasing two separate tickets you should leave at least 2.5 hours, preferably closer to 3 hours.

     

  • Luggage in a connecting flight (United)

    I have a flight from Harrisburg to Toronto with a connexion in IAD, my connection time is 1 hour 15 minutes, do i need to pick up my luggage in Washington? will it be enough time? I am spanish, so would i need to pass inmigration again? (i will arrive to JFK one week before) thank you in advance

     

    No, you will not have to claim your luggage or go through Immigration. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates are connected inside security. You will go through Canadian immigration when you get to Toronto.

     

    Thank u so much.

     

  • SFO - YYZ - MXP 1:30 connection time

    I am flying from San Francisco to Milan MXP via Toronto. I have a 1:30h connection time between flights before departing for MXP. Both flights are operated by Air Canada. Is it enough time? Will I have to go through canadian customs, get my luggage and pass security again? What if I miss the flight? Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You may have to go through Canadian Customs, it depends where you arrive. Just follow the signs.

    I am flying from Milan MXP to LAX via Newark in mid-June. I land in EWR at 13.40 and have a 1:26h connection time before departing for LAX. Both flights are with United airlines. Will I have to go through customs in Newark, get my luggage and pass security again? What if I miss the flight? Thanks

     

    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal B or Terminal C, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through Customs, then if you arrived in B, take the Airtrain to Terminal C, where yoy will depart, then go through security and to your departure gate. The recommended time is 90 minutes. If you miss your connection, then you will be rebooked on the next available flight to LAX, of which United has many.

    My 15 year old is traveling alone on united and then SAS. Hnl to SFO arrives into terminal 3. He then needs to walk via connector to international terminal concourse G, basically from gate to gate, and no need to go thru security check correct? Do you know how long the walk is? Would you know the gates SAS been using to go CPH?

     

    Correct. No security needed to get to the G concourse. Shouldn't take more than 15 minutes.

     

  • Connecting from BEY and LHR to LAX through SFO

    I am flying into SFO from BEY and LHR and arriving at 1710hrs and I have a connecting flight to LAX via United at 1900hrs. The layover is about 1 hr 40 mins. Do I need to get my luggage re-checked at SFO and to go through customs and Immigration there or at LAX, and if so is there enough time?

     

    Forgot to mention I arrive from LHR with Untied Airlines which is also taking me to LAX. Thanks for the advice.

     

    Yes, in SFO you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate in Terminal 3.

     

  • flight number connection

    Had a non stop flight from Las Vegas to Cleveland, now changed to Las Vegas to Denver with 1 hour and 5 minute layover in Denver to change to different aircraft then on to Cleveland. Flight from Las Vegas to Denver to Cleveland all one flight number, usually they are two fight numbers, one from Las Vegas to Denver and one from Denver to Cleveland. Can anyone explain this to me, why? United can't explain it and is 65 minutes enough time between flights, never have been to Denver Airport

     

    Yes, that is plenty of time. Ignore the flight number thing. One flight number, two different flight numbers, doesn't really matter if there's a connection required. All United gates in Denver are on the same concourse (concourse B).

     

    Thanks for your input really appreciate it.

     

  • Moving luggage from domestic baggage claim to intl check-in

    I will be arriving domestically on American and need to claim my luggage to check it for an international flight. I will have extra luggage with me. Is it possible to take a luggage cart from the baggage claim area to the international check-in desk? Thanks!

     

    What airport? What airline are you flying on the second flight?

     

    I fly into LAX, I believe at terminal 4. My international flight is China Southern. They are on separate tickets so I don't think AA will check it all the way.

     

    OK. If you can find luggage carts in the T4 baggage claim, you can take them to the international terminal, but you may have trouble finding one. You may just want to purchase an inexpensive foldable luggage cart and pack it in your checked baggage if you're bringing a lot of baggage.

     

    Thank you for your help!

     

  • United ExpressJet into T2, then United from T1 - 1 hour

    Arriving United ExpressJet from Ottawa into T2 I believe at 07:15, then departing United to Belize from T1 at 08:15. The agents say its doable if we tell the attendants to help move us along. We will be pre-cleared customs in Ottawa. How fast are we going to have to run?

     

    You should have plenty of time. You don't need any attendants' help. There is a walkway between T2 and T1 inside security. It shouldn't take more than 15 minutes to walk between your gates.
