  • Connection between GSP and NSY
    Sep 28, 2014
    We have a layover time in IAH of 57 minutes. Is this enough time to transfer between terminals B & C and do we need to go through security again in IAH as part of the connection process?


    Sorry, meant MSY


    And I am flying with United on Thanksgiving weekend !!!


    No, you do not need to go through security. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    Hello, I am flying easyjet between Edinburgh and Amsterdam, and then delta from Amsterdam to Minneapolis. I'm assuming I need to go thru passport control to the baggage claim hall, then get my bags, check them with delta/klm and go back thru immigration? I have 4.5 hours but want to confirm that it what I need to do. Thank you!


    Yes, you have the procedure correct.


  • What tro do in a 7 hr layover between terminal 2 and 4...?
    Sep 28, 2014
    We are coming in on Delta at 2:30 pm Terminal 2 we have to get our bags and then get on train to terminal 4..are there carts to help us? We then have to recheck bags at Emirates checkin and go thru security--is there any place to go in Terminal 4 to hang out?


    T4 is the largest of the JFK terminals - which recently added a lot of restaurants & shops. The Xpress Spa is located at post-security gates A2, A4, B24 B25.


  • B to C
    Sep 28, 2014
    I land at terminal b at 1:35 and leave from C at 2:20. Do I have to go through security again? Should I be fine?


    On arrival a DFW, at TB take the free Skylink train located between gates B1-B19 & B20-B39, to TC, arriving between gates C12-C15 & C24-C27 - a five-minute ride.


    The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security. You have enough time.


  • Is 2 hours enought time EWR to MCO?
    Sep 28, 2014
    We're arriving from Glasgow, Scotland into EWR on Icelandair flight (Terminal B?) at 19.00 - then out to MCO with United at 21.00. Will the 2 hours be enough time to make the connection?


    On arrival at Terminal B of EWR, you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bags. NOTE: While Iceland will Arrive at Terminal B (TB), United uses TC for its departures (check-in levels 2 & 3), while United Express uses both TA & TC for its departures. If you bought separate tickets find out if Iceland will transfer your bags to your United flight - if not, you need, after Customs clearance, pick up your bag & check it in which United or United Express. If you need to transfer from TB to TC, you need to take the AirTrain (follow signs), but will have to go through security check at TC before proceeding to connecting gate. 2 hrs. transfer time should be enough. Be warned - TSA arrivals process can be trying at EWR (rude personnel there) - keep you cool!


    Thanks for such a comprehensive and informative reply, Susep14. I'll contact Iceland first thing in the morning to find out if they would transfer our bags to our United flight - I had no idea that there was even the possibility of such an arrangement between airlines. Do you know if there is any way I can establish which terminal the onward flight will be leaving from, other than phoning UA? Thanks again.


    Your flight to Orlando will leave from Terminal C. Even if you can get your bags tagged through to Orlando you will still have to claim them to go through US Customs.


    Thanks Zap. If I can't get the baggage tagged through to MCO, should I be able to get through passport check on arrival at TB, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance, re-check-in bags and get to the boarding gate in TC in under 2 hours ? It sounds like a lengthy procedure.


    It's doable but it will be tough.


  • Can we make it
    Oct 2, 2014
    Arriving to Frankfurt from Budapest to gate 1-A Plus with a connecting flight from Z54 to Dulles. Only have a 45minute layover. Think we can make it?


    Frankfurt Airport has 2 main terminals T1 & T2. T1 has Piers/ Concourses B & C (with T1B, T1C gates) with a separate Satellite Pier T1A - strictly used for U.S. Arrivals on level 1 (A gates) and US departures on level 2 (Z gates). Depending on your airline, you may arrive at either at T1-B, T1C, T2D or T2E - (i.e., if arriving at T2E, your arrivals gate could be one of the E2 - E26 gates). I suggest you open www.ifly.com/fra, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS (left) & scroll down to the detailed text, paying attention to 'Transferring to another Flight/ Terminal' & 'TERMINAL DETAILS'. Yes you can make it in 45 mins.


    Thanks sunset for not answering the question at all! Like so many, I too would like to know about this terminal 1a plus bus not how to look at another website. BTW there is no where that tells you that you will land @ 5 miles from the terminal and have to take said bus to who knows where! I face the same situation tomorrow and plan to post real usable details as soon as I experience this situation! Hope a budapest made it!


    1A+ is not a gate its part of terminal 1, z54 is a gate in a+. (A+ is the long building for longhaul flights)


  • a connection through LAX
    Sep 28, 2014
    I will arrive at LAX at 2.10pm coming from Abu Dhabi in terminal B.we are a family of four and this is our first trip to USA as immigrants .then we have connection by terminal 4 to SMF at 4.50pm .Is it enough time ?and do we need to claim our baggage in LAX at first ...thanks


    I purchased my tickets together


    LAX does not have a Terminal B. You will arrive at the Tom Bradley International Terminal. When you arrive you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then follow the sign for connecting passengers to the baggage re-check desks. Then you will exit the TBIT, walk to the right, the next building you come to will be Terminal 4. You will go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • From Term A to TerB ticket counter, need to go through Security first?
    Sep 28, 2014
    I have 1:20 from arrival in Term A, gate 17-19 to get to my United flight in Term B. I need to check 2 bags and get boarding passes at Untied in Term B. Do I really need to go through Security before I check my bags at the Untied ticket counter? Basically, is this enough time?


    What airline are you flying into Terminal A? United has a check in counter at Terminal A. You can probably use that. Then you will go back through security in Terminal A and then take the TerminaLink train to Terminal B (if that is actually where you are departing).


  • Arriving from Canada going on to Manzanillo, Mexico
    Sep 30, 2014
    My flight from Canada arrives LAX 08:49am at Terminal 6 and my onward flight to Manzanillo Mexico is from Terminal 5 at 10:05am - only 1:16 hrs later. Do I have enough time??


    Did you buy separate tickets or did you buy your tickets together? If you purchased tickets together and where you are coming from in Canada has US Immigration Immigration pre-clearance, yes, you will have enough time. If you purchased separate tickets or are coming from somewhere without pre-clearance it will be very difficult for you to make your transfer. T5 and T6 are connected inside security by a tunnel.


    Many thanks for your good input. I did get my tickets together from Delta, and I think I can get pre-clearance in Canada. You've put my mind at ease!


  • Transfer from T8 to T5 with separate tickets
    Sep 27, 2014
    Hi, arriving from Helsinki to JFK T8 with Finnair at 3:50pm and have a connection to TPA with JetBlue, apparently from T5, at 7:36pm. I'm a Finnish citizen, tickets are bought separately and I am travelling with a cabin pet (dog). Do I still have enough transfer time with immigration, customs etc and time to take my dog to a pet relief area ? Thanks!


    Yes, that should be enough time.


    Sep 27, 2014


    The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security. It should take less than 15 minutes to get from B to D.


  • How to go to T2 from T1
    Sep 27, 2014
    I'm arriving at T1 from Malaysia, I need to catch next flight at T2 to London. I just have one hand luggage and no baggage to collect. Do i need to go through passport control? How do i go from T1 to T2? How long it would take? I just have 90minutes


    Yes, you will have to go through passport control, then take the CDGVAL to Terminal 2. I don't know how long it will take. If you have to check in separately for your flight to London you may get to T2 too late for that.


    I just bring one hand luggage and i don't have to go to counter to check-in for flight to go to London. I will doing it online and i just have to go straightly to terminal 2 after passport control. I don't have baggage to check-in. Is it possible?


  • connecting from domestic to international
    Sep 26, 2014
    I am arriving at Terminal 1 from Regina and departing from Terminal 1 on an international flight. Do I have to go through any security ?


    No, you do not.


  • Making a connecting flight within terminal C
    Sep 26, 2014
    Please help! I'm beginning to worry about the time it will take to to make my connecting flight. I arrive from BHX into EWR 11.55 on a United Airlines flight landing in Terminal C. My connecting flight leaves EWR from Terminal C at 13.29. It has been sold to me as a legal connection.... will I get through all the checks in time? Also what is the procedure that I need to go through? Is everything signposted? Will I have time to ask for help if I need it? I could really do with a to do list with locations and approx timings!!! Thanks.


    Yes, that is a legal connection. The first part is very simple. You will arrive and be funneled towards US Immigration, then you will claim your baggage then go through US Customs, then re-check your baggage. Then you will go up to the departure level and through security and to your departure gate.


  • Connection to San Jose, Costa Rica
    Sep 26, 2014
    Is 45 min enough time to transfer from a United from Denver - San Jose, Costa Rica


    Yes, if your first flight is on-time. You will arrive in Terminal C or E and depart from Terminal E, which is directly connected to C.


    Thank you for your response
