  • from jet blue T5 in transit to korean air terminal 2-3
    Dec 28, 2014
    I will be getting off, from Jet Blue T5, heading to Korean air terminal 2-3, please advise me how to get to Korean air terminal.


    Korean Air uses Terminal 1. There is no Terminal 3. TO get from T5 to T3 you will have to take the AirTrain. It takes 10-15 minutes.


  • Question regarding passing through security at different terminals
    Dec 28, 2014
    My wife and child are taking an international flight the same night I am taking a domestic flight. Can I proceed through international security to help them get to their gate if I have a domestic ticket that leaves from another terminal?


    Not unless they are leaving from Terminal 4 and you are leaving from Terminal 2. Those are the only terminals that are connected inside security.


  • Make connection
    Dec 28, 2014
    Booking a Delta flight from Paris to DTW then on to Louisville. Layover is 1 hr 54 min. Is that enough time to go through customs and then make connecting flight to Louisville. No checked bags. Just carry on bag.


    Yes, that should be plenty of time.


  • SFO to SEA to ICN
    Dec 28, 2014
    Scheduled to be landing in SEA at 10:53am and then connecting to an international flight to ICN at 11:24am. is a 30 minute layover going to be enough for me to go through security check points and between terminals? Thank you in advance


    What airlines are you flying? If you purchased tickets together you will not have to go through security.


    Thanks for the response! The airline is Delta and the tickets were purchased together. hopefully it goes down smoothly with no delays


    Yes, then you have a chance if your first flight is on-time, but obviously very little time to spare in case of delays.

    I am looking at a layover between DL 34431 (Richmond to Detroit) and DL 2263 (Detroit to Seattle) of just 49 minutes. Is this reasonable? Looks like they are in the same terminal but wondering how close together the gates may be (e.g., same concourse?). Thanks for any assistance!


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will likely arrive in concourse B or C, and depart from concourse A. They are connected inside security by an underground walkway.


  • Returning from Costa Rica
    Dec 28, 2014
    My husband, our 5 year old, and I will be flying on Delta and will return from Liberia Costa Rica with a layover in LAX on our way home to Seattle. Our flight lands at 12:40p.m. and the other one leaves at 2:07 p.m. Questions: 1. Is 87 minutes enough time to clear customs and get to the next flight? 2. Delta agents have given me conflicting info on baggage. One saying we'd have to get our bags and go through customs and the other saying "No, bags will be checked through to Seattle" and we don't have to worry about them in LAX. Which one of them is right? Thank you for the help!


    You will have enough time. You will arrive in T5, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.


    Thank you ZAP for the information. I very much appreciate it.


  • Can I greet my family on a layover?
    Dec 29, 2015
    Family arrives tonight at 8:10 into IAD from Frankfort. They are transfering to Denver. Am I correct that they will go through customs and I could greet them at the International terminal afterwards. As they will have to go to their next gate and security again. Is this how it work? Thanks so much!


    If their flight from Frankfurt is on United they will not arrive at the International Arrivals Building but instead go through Immigration and customs in the Terminal C facility. If they do arrive a the IAB, then yes, they could exit the IAB and meet you.


    On my last international flight transfers had a different process and routing then those exiting at iad. As I was exiting I do not know the process for those transferring. It might be best to talk to them when they arrive and confirm


    They are flying United. What would I do to greet them on United?


    The place I was thinking of meeting them is that area right after going through customs. The main question I have is - everyone comes out that exit and then has to go through security again. Right? My family doesn't know that I am trying to greet them. There has been an emergency and the trip is a last minute trip. Wanted to greet them and offer support in between their flights.


    That is incorrect. United transiting passengers are processed in their facility in the C and D concourse and go back through security there and then directly back into C/D. They do not exit into a public area.


  • Transfering from T8 To T4
    Dec 28, 2014
    Hi I need some advice we will arrive into JFK on an internal flight from Seattle with American and will be transferring to Virgin Atlantic to LHR We arrive at 3.15 pm and our Flight to LHR leaves at 7.30 pm will this give us enough time to re check in and clear security in T4 thanks


    Yes, that should be plenty of time.


  • Is the time enough
    Dec 28, 2014
    Hi, Based on the following fight details, 1*AF 563Q 01MAR SU BEYCDG HK1 0205 0545 2*AF3620Q 01MAR SU CDGATL HK1 0800 1155 are two hours and fifteen minutes enough to catch my connecting flight to ATL? Thank You


    Yes, that should be enough time. Note that your Atlanta flight will be operated by Delta.


  • SVO-AMS-SFO separate tickets, is 2hr10min enough time?
    Jan 10, 2015
    If I travel on separate tickets from SVO to AMS (on KLM) and AMS to SFO (on Delta), is 2 hours 10 minutes in AMS enough time to change flights? Will I go through immigration/check-in, or only pick up and check in luggage? Thank you for your help!


    You will have plenty of time. You will not have to go through Immigration or claim your bags in Amsterdam as you will not be entering the Schengen area, you only have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate and go through security.


    If I have checked luggage, where do I pick it up from and where will I check it in? (SVO-AMS is the final leg of a trip booked earlier. AMS-SFO is the first leg on a separate ticket.) Thank you again. :)


    You should have mentioned the separate tickets. If you show your AMS-SFO confirmation to the KLM agent in Moscow they should be able to check your bags through to San Francisco.


  • SFO to SEA to YYJ
    Dec 28, 2014
    We are Australians completing our US holiday in SFO then flying to YYJ via SEA. The booking is on one ticket with Alaska Airlines, but has us arriving SEA at 1118 and departing at 1210 (on Horizon Air). Will this be enough time to make the connection? Will they hold the second flight if we are late, or put us on the next flight, assuming there are seats available? Thanks.


    That should be plenty of time. If you miss your connection due to a delay they will put you on the next available flight.


  • UA SFO-JFK transfer to B6 JFK-BOS
    Dec 28, 2014
    Will 1 hour be enough to transfer SFO-JFK UA Z-class to B6 JFK-BOS? No checked bags. Can check-in for B6 online in advance, but no TSA pre (yes Global Entry).


    Yes, if you do all that stuff and check-in online you should be able to get from T7 to T5 and go through security in an hour. However, it doesn't leave much time to spare for delays.


  • cestovanie

    Is 55 min layover enough in Munich? Arriving from USA going to Vienna


    Should be enough time but doesn't leave much to spare. You will have to go through Schengen passport control.


  • From bogota to Newark to hamburg with united
    Dec 27, 2014
    Hello everybody, I'm travelling from bogota to Newark only for transfer and then travelling to hamburg. I have 1hour52min time to transfer and catch my connecting flight to hamburg. Do you think this is enough time? Do you have any idea which terminal I'm arriving and from which terminal I'm departing? I'm flying with united from bogota and also to hamburg. Do I have to pick up the luggage even if it's the same company I'm traveling with? Heeeeelppppppp and thank you!


    Yes, that should be enough time. Both flights will likely be in terminal c, but you may arrive in terminal b. Yes, you have to claim your baggage to go through US customs then re-check it at the transfer desk.


  • dubai - san diego via SFO
    Dec 27, 2014
    is it realistic to book and make a connection between arriving from dubai on emirates (13:10) and connecting to virgin america flight to san diego 2 hours later at 15:15? i have a UK passport thanks


    Booked together it's doable. Booked separately, it's difficult.
