  • Calgary to Managua
    Oct 29, 2013

    I am arriving into Houston at 6:09pm and have a connecting flight to Managua, Nicaragua at 6:43pm. Which terminals will I be arriving/leaving from? Is this enough time to make the connection?

     

    That depends on which airline or airlines you will be taking. Do take advantage of Calgary's U.S. customs clearance & baggage transfer.

     

    If you are flying Air Canada from Calgary you will arrive in A. If you are flying United from Calgary you will likely arrive in C. Your departure will be from E. You will pre-clear US Immigration in Calgary. If you are flying Air Canada you can take the TerminaLink train from A to E. If you are flying United you can walk from C to E. That is a very tight connection. You will have to hope that your first flight is on-time or preferably early.

     

  • Connection from Chicago Ohare to Liberia Costa Rica via IAH

    I am booked on United Flight 357 from Chicago (O'Hare) to Houston (IAH) connecting on flight 1512 to Liberia Costa Rica. The time between connections is 52 minutes. Any advice on making this connection in Houston?

     

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

  • Connection from Emirates(International) to Delta (Domestic)

    Hi- My parents are travelling to US next week in Emirates and reaching JFK at 1:30 PM. They have a connection flight to Pittsburgh at 19:30 through Delta in Terminal 2( DL 2931). The ticket is booked in a single booking. So i have couple of questions a) can my parents drop the checkin baggage in the delta counter outside the international terminal? b) Is there an option for airline assistance which they can opt to take from International terminal to DElta terminal as they are travelling first time Thanks in advance

     

    Delta will not have a counter in Terminal 1, however, if their bags are checked through to PIT they can drop their bags at the International re-check desk after they clear customs in T1. Emirates will probably have someone greeting the flight who can probably get them directions to Terminal 2 in their native language. They will also have to get their Delta boarding passes once they get to T2.

    I have 2 hours in AMS before departing to JRO. Does anyone know which gate/terminal I will arrive at from the US and which gates I will depart? I'm flying KLM, operated by Delta all on one ticket. Will I need to pick up my bags and go through customs in AMS or will I do that in JRO?

     

    You will not have to go through EU immigration in AMS, you will just go through security at your departure gate. Amsterdam only has one terminal with numerous Piers, which are all connected. Connections at Amsterdam are typically very intuitive.

    Hi, I'm travelling from Boston to Dulles via United, arriving at 9:05pm. My flight from Dulles to Sao Paulo Brazil departs at 10:10, leaving me just about an hour to make the connecting flight. Is that enough time to safely make my flight?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. Both flights will be in the C/D concourse.

    Arriving UA Flight 3853 and connecting to UA Filght 1012 to Cancun, 55 minutes between flights. Is this enough time to make the connection ?

     

    Yes, that will be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will likely arrive in concourse B and depart from E. If that's the case take the TerminaLink train which connects all concourses inside security. Also, if you do miss your connection United has numerous flights from Houston to Cancun on most days so you have ample opportunity to be rebooked.

     

  • connection flight T4 -> T6

    I'll fly from Narita (AA airlines) and my arrival will be in T4, the connection flight depart from T6. Will i have to clear custom and immigration (not US citizen), claim baggage in T4 or do it in TBIT?

     

    You will arrive, clear immigration, claim your baggage, go through customs, and re-check your bags all in T4 (assuming you bought all your tickets on one reservation). After re-checking your bags go outside to the curbfront and it's a short walk to T6. What airline are you flying onwards out of T6?

     

    Thank for your reply, i'm arrive at T4 on AA170 and depart from T6 on AA7072 to Seattle, and all my tickets on one reservatoin. I don't know what to do in LAX. I search on google about T4 map and don't find any map show that T4 has points to do something like clear immigration and custom. So i think that i have to walk to TBIT to do that things.

     

    No, T4 does have immigration. It's all on the lower level and doesn't show up on the maps since all you do there is wait in line. Today, for example, AA170 arrived at gate 41 (which is in T4). American's map of T4 does show the International arrivals in T4 as well - http://www.aa.com/i18n/aboutUs/whereWeFly/terminals/terminal_LAX.jsp FYI, if you don't know your flight to Seattle will be operated by Alaska Airlines.

     

    By the way, my eticket show that the flight from LAX to SEA is AA7072 at 2:10 PM (operated by AS) but i didn't find the information about this flight (departure, gate), i also didn't find any flights departing to SEA at that time ... I guess it depart from T6, what exactly the flight AA7072?

     

    AA7072 is Alaska Airlines flight 461 currently. Right now it is a 2:50 PM flight, so perhaps it changes to a 2:10 PM flight when you are traveling. You could go to the alaska airlines website and search for a flight that matches yours on the day you are traveling.

     

  • Arriving TB and then go TC to Ft. Lauderdale

    I'm a portuguese tourist arriving from Lisbon in terminal B at 15.50 (TP103) on 15th November and transferring to Terminal C for a connecting flight to Ft Lauderdale at 18.56 (UA1416). Will there be enough time for passport check, customs and transfer? We have to pick up bags after go through passport check? Do we bring bags to Terminal C or there is some other droppoint before take the Air train?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. If your bags are checked through to FLL in Lisbon, you will just have to claim your bags after you go through immigration, then go through customs, then you can drop them off at the re-check desk and you won't have to take them to TC with you.

     

    Grateful for the attention.

    Where would be the best place to meet someone if you are coming in at opposite terminals?
