  • SFO --> HOU (Term C) --> Panama (Term E)
    Jun 28, 2014

    I have a one hour and 15 min connection between my flight from SFO (Terminal C) and my flight to Panama (Terminal E). Is that enough time and is it walkable?

     

    On arrival at IAH, at Terminal C (TC), which has North & South Concourses (North gates C24-27; South C29-45) - the South Concourse at gate C45 connects to Terminal E. (follow signs). You have plenty of time.

     

  • sea delay with ams transfer to MAD
    Jun 28, 2014

    My daughter is on first international flight alone, and it was delayed slightly out of seattle. With landing in AMS at 8:30, and MAD flight boarding at 9am...any possibility of her making? Still confused if she needs to recheck her own luggage non-schengen to schengen? If delayed...who does she talk with to help expedite her through? She is unaccompanied.

     

    At AMS she will have to go through non-Schengen (foreign) procedure, before she will be able to proceed to her non-Schengen (domestic) flight. 30 mins transfer time with checked luggage is therefore too short - unless she will only have a carry-on bag. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ams, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

     

  • Luggage Storage by Terminal 7

    We are arriving to JFK at Terminal 5 at 8:00 am and departing at 2:10 pm via Terminal 7 to Iceland. We would like to collect our bags and store them so we can escape JFK for a few hours. Any suggestions on a close location to store them? Are there any services that will check them early? Thanks!

     

    Did you receive an answer ? I am very interested too. Thanks !

     

  • Connection Time Concern

    Flying from Florence, SC to Rochester, NY - layover is only 33 minutes. I KNOW that we will arrive in 'E' since it is a small plane. Will 33 minutes be enough time to catch a connecting flight. I am traveling alone with a two year old....

     

    33 mins should be OK if your first flight is on-time. All gates at CLT are connected inside security.

    Need to quickly get from Terminal 1 (D gates) to Terminal 3 (E gates) for a connection. What is the best way? How quickly can it be done?

     

    The D-gates are part of both Terminal 1 and 3 and there is a train that runs inside security to each of them.

     

  • ICN-SFO arr 11:30am connecting to SFO-YYC dep 2:00 WITH DOG

    Hi there, we are flying ICN-SFO (United) arr 11:30am connecting to SFO-YYC (WestJet) dep 2:00 WITH DOG (Westjet desk is aisle 6 international terminal) The SFO-YYC passenger is not US citizen so must go through all the checks and everything. Will he have enough time, including re-checking in the dog for the

     

    With the dog, it will be very difficult.

     

    It depends what airline your first ticket is on. If they have a close relationship with AA, that agent may be willing to tag your bag through to AA if you show your AA confirmation or boarding pass. If so, then you can re-check your bags in T5. Otherwise you will have to take them on the ATS to Terminal 3 to check them with AA.

     

    I'll be coming in on SAS..how do I find out if they have a close relationship with AA.... and thanks for the information

  • Connecting Aegean to United via FCO

    My details are below, which involves a 50m layover. Is this possible? It doesn't seem so but would like to know the details of the transfer: Aug 28 A3 650 ATH 8:45AM FCO 10:00AM 2h 15m Airbus A320 Economy (O) Layover in FCO 0h 50m UA 967 FCO 10:50AM IAD 2:55PM 10h 5m Boeing 767 Economy (K)

     

    No, that's not really possible as transferring to United means you have to go to Terminal 5.

     

    Any idea why Google ITA would spit this out as an option?

     

    Because it doesn't know what a pain in the ass getting to Terminal 5 is and since United has very little connecting traffic at FCO, they haven't bothered to increase their minimum connecting time there accordingly since Terminal 5 opened.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will go through EU exit passport control when exiting the Schengen concourse and then security at your departure gate.

     

    this ZAP guy always says you have enough time, he must be working for FRA....its a horrific airport and you will miss most connections

     

    I do not work for FRA

    I am getting married in Iceland in May 2015 and Delta does not fly there but from June to Sept so I will be flying from Atlanta to JFK (Delta) then flying Icelandair to Reykjavik. How much time do I need to leave in between flights going each way? Also, I'm assuming I'll have to go get my bags from baggage claim at JFK and go back through security or can I check them all the way through from Atlanta?

     

    Icelandair and Delta do have an interline baggage agreement, however, for your bags to be transferred you will need to book the tickets together on one reservation. Even if your bags are transferred you will have to exit security, take the AirTrain to Terminal 7, get your IcelandAir boarding pass, and go through security to make your transfer. I would want at least 2.5 hours for such a transfer.

     

  • Domestic to International 1 hr layover

    I am flying from SAT into IAH (term C)with a 1 hr. layover then going to Toronto YYZ (fromTerm A) is this possible ?

     

    Yes, it's possible. The TerminaLink connects all Terminals inside security. I assume your Toronto flight is on Air Canada if you say you're leaving from A, correct?

     

    Yes, thanks

     

  • Is 26 minutes enough time?
    Jun 26, 2014

    I want to book a flight using reward miles. But, i'd have a 26 minute layover in LGA. That would just be stupid, right? If I book it and miss a flight, is the airline responsible for getting me to my destination, or would it be my fault because I booked a flight with a 26 minute layover?

     

    If both tickets are booked on the same airline together, then they are responsible for getting you there even if you miss your connection, however, that may mean you won't get to your destination for several hours or maybe even a day later.

    I will be arriving on Alaska at 6:35 a.m. and need to connect to Hawaiian Airlines flight leaving at 10:00 a.m. How do I get to the concourse served by Hawaiian Airlines?

     

    Hawaiian uses the S Satellite. Simply follow the signs to the S Satellite. There are a series of trains that connect the Alaska gates in C, D, and N to S. You should have plenty of time.

     

  • Connection, termincal C -> B
    Jun 26, 2014

    I will arrive from the Carrabian with UA in termincal C but have a connection flight out of US from terminal B. I have around 90 minutes to catch the connecting flight, is that enough ? Do I have to get my baggages and check in again in terminal B ?

     

    Were your tickets bought together or separately? What airline are you flying out of B? If bought together you can re-check your bags in Terminal C after you clear customs. 90 minutes leaves no time to spare for your connection. It will be difficult.

     

    Those are two seperate tickets so I canĀ“t check my bags all the way. I fly with Icelandair from terminal B.

     

    Then no, you will have a very tough time making it in 90 minutes. You will have to take the baggage with you to Terminal B. Unless your flight arrives early (which is very rare at EWR, especially in the afternoon and evening), you won't make it to Terminal B with your baggage prior to the baggage check cutoff time.

     

    It will be hard to make your transfer in the time you have, but it's doable. You will both arrive and depart from Terminal 8. Upon arrival, you will go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, then drop your bags at the baggage re-check with American. Then you will go to the departure level and through security and to your departure gate. If you miss your connection then you will be rebooked on the next AA flight to Los Angeles, of which there are many.

     

  • International transfer / Transit without USA Visa possible?
    Jun 26, 2014

    Dear, i am travelling from Paksitan to Toronto via Chicago o'Hare intl Airport. I dont have US Visa or transit Visa. Will i be required to pass through immigration for taking my flight for toronto? or my lugguage will be automatically placed on the next flight and i will just move to next flight gate? Thanks

     

    Yes, you will have to pass through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs. You will then have to take the ATS Train from Terminal 5 where you arrive to your departure terminal (1,2, or 3). You need to either acquire a US transit visa or change your flights to ones that do not stop in the U.S.

     

    Yes, you will depart from Terminal 8. Yes, this should be enough time, even if you have to transfer bags between terminals yourself.

     

  • Connecting flight miami-Dallas
    Jun 26, 2014

    I arrive at Miami from Grand Cayman at 3:20pm and have a connecting flight to Dallas leaving at 5:25pm; both flights are with US Airways. I will only be taking hand luggage, will there still be enough time to clear immigration and make my flight? Miami has a history of missed flights and delays due to building works and long immigration lines. I have another connection once in Dallas only 2 hours between so timing is important.

     

    Actually both of your flights will be operated by American. 2 Hours should be enough time, but as you mentioned, things at Miami are a bit unpredictable, however, I've heard that immigration there has gotten a lot better than it once was.

     

  • Connection between Alaska (Terminal 6) and Southwest

    I am arriving on an International Alaska Airlines flight that arrives at 6:05 and connecting to a Southwest Airlines flight that leaves at 9:10. Will I have enough time to make it through immigration and customs, walk from terminal 6 to terminal 1, check my bag at Southwest and make it through security in time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will be out of customs by about 6:45 and should be at T1 by 7 or 7:15, leaving you plenty of time.
