  • Enough time to connect from Istanbul flight to domestic flight?
    Mar 3, 2014
    1
    If I arrive from Istanbul at 4:30 p.m. on a Thursday at Terminal 1, does an 8:30 p.m. American Airlines flight from Terminal 8 to LAX give me enough time to get thru passport control, customs, recheck baggage, and get to Terminal 8? I haven't flown thru JFK recently but have heard horror stories

     

    Yes, 4 hours should be plenty of time.

    i have an overnight cnnxn in sfo. i land around 9pm via AA. i need to go to baggage and claim my bags. now i read that delta has a sky club BEFORE going through security. i am a sky club member. so would it be possible to land, exit security, grab my bags, and then go to the sky club until it closes at midnight? then, when sky club closes, i can sleep "somewhere" in baggage claim. and then the next morning check in for my early flight? are the logistics of this doable? thanks

    We will be arriving on a Delta flight at T2. Our Alitalia flight (bought on a Delta ticket) will depart from T1. Will we need to go through security at T1? What is the minimum we should allow between flights?

     

    Yes, you will have to go through security to depart from T1. Allow at least 90 minutes for your transfer.

     

    Thanks for the info. We'll plan on it.

    we will arrive at JFK from LAX (t4) with delta and depart to MXP with Emirates (t4). Is 1 hour and 30 minutes enough?

     

    That is enough time.

     

    U think we get collect our baggage in New York?!

     

    Were your tickets bought on one reservation or separate? If they were bought on separate reservations you will have to transport your baggage from the Delta baggage claim to the Emirates ticket counter as Delta does not check bags through to destinations bought on separate itineraries.

     

    Will be enough time even if I have to take baggages? Thank you!

     

  • are all dfw terminals within the same security "bubble"?

    i have a super long layover in dallas. can i walk around or train around to all the terminals without ever having to exit/re-enter secuity? if this is NOT possible, which terminals involve exiting/re-entering security? thanks!

     

    I suggest you open www.ifly.com/dfw, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

     

    All terminals are connected inside security by the SkyLink train. There are no walkways connecting terminals.

     

    WE Walked from C to A and back,wrong DP Gate given on our arv flg.There is a ped bridge btw C & A.We did have to take SkyLink on our return flg.DP from Term E

     

  • what terminal changes do NOT involve security?

    i have a 3+ hour layover arriving in jfk from san fran on american airlines and leaving jfk on hawaiian air for honululu (yes, a bizarre routing i know!). i have a delta sky club membership and would like to go there : 1. do i have to exit my arrival terminal, enter security to get to delta sky club, then exit delta terminal, and re-enter security for my hawaiian air departure terminal?...OR...is there a way to do this without having to deal with security? thanks!

     

    You will arrive at AA's Terminal 8 & depart your Hawaiian flight at T5; however, Delta Sky Club is in T4 POST-SECURITY(near gate 32). All terminals are reached by the Airline Terminals train, running counter-clockwise OUTSIDE of security. Contact Delta & see what you need to do to use their Sky Club.

     

  • terminal 5 to terminal 3

    I am flying from Doha (Qatar Airway QR 0721) to Terminal 5 then I have a connection to Raleigh through Terminal 3. This is my first time flying. I have two checked luggages. so would you please tell me the steps I will go through and required time to change terminals including customs & immigration ? I have five hours lay over time.

     

    On arrival at ORD you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag; then proceed up one level to the Airport Transit System (ATS) station and take the ATS train, which runs every few minutes, to T3, where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate. NOTE: If you purchased separate tickets & your connecting flight is not with Qatar, you need to pick up your bag after customs clearance & re-check it in with the connecting airline. To familiarize yourself with the terminal layout, etc. open open www.ifly.com/ord, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

     

    Thank you soooooo much :)

    Hi I am flying from New York to Manchester, via IAD airport. I only have 45 minutes in between flights. Would this be enough time to transfer? Thanks

     

    Yes, as long as your flight isnt delayed.

     

    Yes, as long as your flight isnt delayed.

    Arrival Newark terminal B on UA961 from Brussels on 03/03 12:30 Departure for houston from terminal C on UA1232 on 03/03 14:00 Please tell me I have enough time :-) Thanks ( does houston have a similar service to this great forum ? )

     

    Yes you have enough time. While Terminal C (TC) of EWR Airport is exclusively used by United & United Express airlines - however, domestic flights of United Express also use Gate Area A2 in Terminal A). International Arrivals go through passport control and customs clearance, re-check in their bags & may proceed to their connecting gate. If your connection is in TA, take the shuttle bus at gateway C1, near gate C71, where you arrive at TA at gate A28. For both EWR & Houston airports (IAH or HOU?) I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iah (or hou) then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

     

  • 2 hr 35 min enough for terminal 2 to 4 transfer?

    Delta flight arriving at 8:45am at terminal 2 (i assume), Emirates flight leaving at 11:20am from terminal 4. Tickets were not purchsed together. Can I use the Delta shuttle to get to Terminal 4? No baggage will be checked. Is this enough time to make the Emirates flight?

     

    While you might not be able to use the Delta shuttle, you will have plenty of time taking the airline terminal train (going counter-clockwise) to T4, but there need to go through security check before proceeding to your departing gate.

    Is an hour and half enough time in Frankfurt between a domestic Lufthansa flight to an International Air Canada Flight? Are they in the same terminal? Thank you!

     

    i think its too tight

     

    Both flights are out of Pier (Concourse) B, which has gates B1-B63. You have plenty of time.

     

  • Is 59 minutes enough connect time?

    I arrive in T2 from ATL and depart from T4 to VCE. Both are Delta. Is 59 minutes enough time? Delta claims it is but I wonder. Thanks

     

    Yes, if your first flight is on-time it's enough time. Also, you may get lucky and your ATL flight may arrive in Terminal 4. However, it doesn't leave much time for any delays.

     

    Thanks! Given what happens in ATL I think I'll look into going a day earlier.

     

  • ATH to FCO to YYZ

    Arriving from ATH (assuming T1) with Canadian Passport and have 90 minutes before FCO to YYZ flight (assuming T3). Will I need to clear passport control with Canadian PP, or coming from Schengen port will not require this. If required, is it a long ordeal? And most importantly, is 90 minutes enough? Bags should be going right through to YYZ.

     

    Since Athens and Rome are both in Schengen there won't be any passport check, just security at your gate. You should have enough time.

     

  • security within terminal 4

    I have a connecting flight with terminal 4 level 1. Arrive on Air Nostrum from Granada at 15.00 an dleave for Dublin on Iberia Express at 15.50.... But the time is only 45 minutes - will I need to clear security again and will I make it in 45 minutes - is seems very short to me? Iberia told me miminum connection time is 45 minutes!

     

  • Connecting between Southwest and Spirit
    Feb 28, 2014

    I'm arriving at FLL Terminal 1 on Southwest and departing on Spirit from Terminal 4 for an international flight to San Salvadore, Bahamas. Is 1:50 enough time to make the connection if I only have carry-on? What if I have a checked bag?

     

    Yes, it's definitely doable with only carry ons (note however that Spirit has a carry-on fee if you need to use the overhead bin). It would be tough with checked bags as you'd have to transfer them yourselves and get to Spirit's desk before their check-in cut-off.
