    What terminal does United use when flying from Houston to Belize City?

     

    That flight would depart from Terminal E.

    we are flying in from YYC to IAH Terminal E connecting to MIA terminal C HAVE ABOUT 75 mins. what is quickest route? Will we have to collect our checked luggage, or will it be transferred for us?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Calgary. You don't have to do anything with your baggage in Houston. You have plenty of time. You will likely arrive in Terminal C, not E.

     

  • 40 minutes in Denver doable? CPR - DEN - ORD
    Jan 12, 2015

    I am about to book a flight from Casper to Düsseldorf, with stops in Denver and Chigaco. The stop in Chigaco takes 3 hours, so I'm not so worried about that, however, I only have 40 minutes in Denver. All flights are with the same airline (United Airlines). Will my bags be going straight to Düsseldorf? And will 40 minutes be enough time in Denver for a(n inexperienced) traveller to switch planes? It's either 40 minutes or nearly 4 hours, so if 40 minutes is easily doable, I'd like to take that option.

     

    Yes, your bags will be checked straight through to DUS and you won't have to touch them until you get there. In Denver all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Both are on concourse B. You have enough time if your flight to Denver arrives on-time.

     

    How about when I go from Dusseldorf - Frankfurt - Denver - Casper. Would my bags go straight to Casper, or would I have to get them and check them in again at Denver because of that being my first stop in the USA?

     

    Yes, in Denver on your return you will have to claim them , go through US Customs, then re-check them at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate in the B concourse.

     

    Thank you very much for your quick responses! Your help is much appreciated :).

     

    Trying to determine if a flight I want to purchase gives enough connection time and terminals aren't identified. I'd like to fly in to Denver on United Flight 6507 Apr 14, 2015 arriving at 7:01 PM and 47 min later leave on the 7:48 PM UA1683. Is that the same terminal? Would there be any difficulty making this flight even if it arrived a little late? What are the odds on United Flights coming in late?

     

    Denver only has one terminal. All United and United Express flights are on the same concourse. If the flight is on-time that's an easy connection.

    Between my domestic flight from Chicago to DFW and the connection to Cancun I have 80 minutes time. Do I have to go through immigration / custom in DFW? Is this time enough?

     

    You do not go through US Immigration or customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security. You have enough time.

     

  • Ats with 4 luggages

    My husband and I will be on flying into ohare from fargo on american airline and connecting to emirates to dubai back to Kuala Lumpur with 4 luggages . Both flights not ticketed together how to carry 4 luggages onto the ATS ? Can we use the trolley and walk to terminal 5 from terminal 3? Pls help. Thank you very much.

     

    It is impossible to walk from T3 to T5. You will just have to carry the bags on the ATS. Can't each of you hold one bag in each arm? Otherwise you can buy a foldable luggage cart and then re-pack it in your bags or throw it away when you get to T5.

    Can I check in and drop luggage off at Terminal B if leaving out of Terminal A-East? If so, how much time should I allow for this?

     

  • T7 to T1 in 1h 18m

    We arrive to JFK from Toronto at T1 and leave from T7 for Munich. The layover is 1h 18m. Will that be enough time to make it? Do we need to go though security again? (I don't think we need to claim/check our bags again).

     

    You have your terminals reversed. If you are flying Air Canada to JFK you will arrive in T7 and if you are flying Lufthansa to Munich you will depart from T1. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto. You will take the AirTrain from T7 to T1 and then go through security. You barely have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

    Thank you for the reply. Yes, I got my terminals mixed up, sorry about that. Well...hopefully we will somehow make it...if not, I guess we'll visit New York.

     

    If you miss your connection Lufthansa can probably reroute you to Munich through Frankfurt. They have a JFK-FRA flight that leaves at 10:10 PM.

     

  • minimum connecting time and procedure

    I am arriving with El Al from TLV on JAN15 at 06.00 a.m. and would like to connect to FLL. what is the minimum connecting time? what do I need to do if I do not have a boarding card yet for the onward domestic flight. I am travelling on standby since I am an airline employee. How do I get from one terminal to the other? ossible connections with VX and B6 or DL. thanks in advance

     

    The AirTrain connects all terminals outside security. DL uses T2 and T4. VX uses T4, B6 uses T5. Since VX only has one JFK-FLL flight a day and it is at 8 AM I don't think you will have time to make it. You have a better chance of making it on a B6 flight since they have bigger aircraft and more frequent flights. However, it is very hard to get on flights to South Florida during the winter, especially travelling as an OA standby, so you might be in NY for awhile

    I am flying in from South Africa and have 1h40 to go through customs, pick up baggage and check baggage etc for connecting flight to dfw. Do I have enough time or must I take a later flight.

     

    That should be enough time. There is a separate security checkpoint for connecting passengers from international flights, so that should save you some time.

     

  • T1 to T4 in 1hr 50 min

    I am going delhi to seattle by airfrance (single e-ticket) and have two stops one at CDG airport paris (layover time 7 hr) and other at JFK (layover time 1hr 50 min). Since newyork is first port of entry for me in USA, so I have to clear the customs at JFK airport itself. The arrival flight at JFK is on Terminal 1 while the departure flight to seattle is from Terminal 4. I have 1 hr 50 min connection time at JFK. will it be enough ? The flight from newyork to seattle is operated jointly by delta airlines and airfrance.

     

    That should be barely enough time to make your connection if your flight from Paris is on-time. After you clear customs you will re-check your bags at the transfer desk in T1, then take the AirTrain to T4, go through security and to your departure gate.

    Arriving in JFK T4 from Brazil with connection to LAX at T4 on a single e-ticket, single airline. Layover time 1 hr 35 min. We were told by the airlines that luggage would go straight from Brazil to LAX, but don't we have to pass through customs at first point of entry (JFK)? We have 6 suitcases - would we have to claim them, go through customs and re-check?

     

    Yes, you will have to claim them, go through US Customs, then re-check them at the transfer desk in JFK.

     

    Thanks for the reply! Do we claim them at the normal baggage claim area, having to go through security again or is there a special baggage claim and recheck within the same secured area that we deplane? Thank you!

     

    There is a special international baggage claim in between US Immigration and US Customs and then a re-check desk immediately after. Then you will have to go through security and to your departure gate.

    We are coming into JFK on AB and then going on to CLT via Us Airways. These are booked on separate tickets. AB is arriving in T8 and IS is scheduled to depart from T8. Is a 2 hr connection doable with only carry on?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

    I have plan to visit my south korea, ICN. First, I will go to seattle from atlanta. and then i transfer the airplane to south korea. Two airplanes are all delta and I purchased these tickets together. But the layover time is only 51min. This time is enough to transfer the flight?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. All you have to do in Seattle on your way to Korea is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which should both be in the S Satellite.

    Hi, I arrive at ORD from Denver and then have 40 minutes to get to my flight to Beijing (Both United Airlines) Would that be enough time, or should I change my flight?

     

    Domestic arrivals/departures for United are in Terminal 1, and international arrivals/departures at Terminal 5. These two terminals are at extreme ends of the airport. Plus, you will have to go through immigration once again (if not security checks). I would say it is a huge risk. It might be wise to rebook if that is not way too expensive.

     

    Ignore Pradeep's post. it is COMPLETELY INCORRECT. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will both be in Terminal 1. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.
