  • where is my gate?
    Aug 13, 2014
    1
    I have nothing but trouble when I get to JFK. It is so large and I am elderly and get very anxious when I get there. My flight from BWI is already delayed today 8-13 for an hour later and that means that I have an hour less time to get to my gate. I am flying to Prague, Czech Republic. Is there anyway I can find out where my gate is ahead of time. Any help would be appreciated.

     

    Your airline's website should have that information.

  • Terminal 6 United to Terminal 2 HA

    I have an hour between flights and only carry on bags, I'm also TSA pre. How long does it take to get from T6 to T2?

     

    If you walk straight across through the parking garages the walk takes 10 minutes if you move quickly. To make your connection I also suggest you check in for your Hawaiian flight online before departing on your United flight.

     

    Gate 70 to 27 how long for TSA?

     

    That I can't predict.

     

  • How to connect from terminal 2 to 4

    I'm travelling with Delta from Toronto to New York JFK airport terminal 2. How do I get to terminal 4 as I have a Delta flight to Israel?

     

    Delta runs a shuttle bus between T2 and T4 on the secure side of the airport.

     

    My plane arrives from Toronto to JFK at 8:00 pm and my plane to Israel leaves terminal 4 at midnight. Will I have enough time to take the shuttle bus? Will my bag be transferred or will I have to claim it first?

     

    Yes, you should have plenty of time. If you purchased tickets together your bag will be transferred automatically. You will pre-clear US Immigration in Toronto.

     

    I have a similar flight (YYZ-JFK-TLV) where there is only one hour scheduled between the two flights. It seems tight, any tips on how to make sure that I don't miss my connection?

     

  • Amsterdam to Las Vegas

    I am flying from Amsterdam (KLM) and arrival 1245 at SFO and goes to Las Vegas with United airlines 4.18 pm and most checked bags first? and the bags are not paid for. Would i have enough time, and what are the best why to do trip.

     

    Did you purchase your tickets separately or together. If purchased separately you will have to take your bags from the International Terminal to Terminal 3 via the Airtrain, then take them to the United counter to check to Las Vegas and pay a checked bag fee. If you did purchase your tickets together you will be able to re-check after customs as your bags will be tagged through to LAS.

     

  • United terminal 3 to Air Lingus International

    I am flying from Burbank CA to SFO by United. Arrival time at SFO will be 3.15 PM. Dept time of Airlingus is 5.20 PM. Also I have checked bag that I assume will go directly (golf bag). Would I have enough time ?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. There is even a secure walkway between United's gates and the International terminal. If tickets were purchased together your bag will be transferred automatically.

     

    Out of curiosity, what is the min amount time needed to catch the flight in SFO ? Let say if there is flight delay.

     

    probably 15-20 minutes

     

  • SJC (San Jose, CA) to IAH to FRA (Frankfurt): 43 minutes in IAH?

    Hi, Is 43 minutes enough time in IAH to switch from an incoming United flight from San Jose to an outbound United flight to Frankfurt? Thanks

     

    Yes, it is enough time if your first flight is on-time but leaves little time for delays. You will arrive in Terminal C and depart from Terminal E which is directly connected to C.

     

  • 55 Minute Connection

    I am flying into ORD from CMH on United, a 55 minute layover, then a United flight to Cancun. Will I arrive & depart ORD from Terminal 1? I want to ensure that 55 minutes is sufficient time. On my return to Chicacgo, what will be my arrival terminal? The layover will be over 3 hours, so I shouldn't have any problems clearing customs, etc., and making my connecting flight back to CMH, right?

     

    Your flight from CMH may arrive in Terminal 1 or 2. Terminals 1 and 2 are connected inside security by a walkway. 55 minutes should be enough time if your flight from CMH is on-time. On your return, you will arrive in Terminal 5 where you will clear US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check your bags with United. Then you will take the ATS train to Terminal 1 or 2 (check monitors before departing) and then go through security.

     

  • 1.5 Connecting Flight MNL-DTW-LIT

    I have a connecting flight in DTW from MNL (via NGO) to LIT. Will 1.5 hrs be enough time to clear immigration/customs so i can catch my flight? This is via Delta.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will go through US Immigration, collect your baggage, go through US Customs, re-check your baggage with Delta, go up to the departure level and go through security. Your departure gate to LIT will probably be on the B-concourse which is connected to the A concourse by an underground tunnel.

    Delta Flight arriving at 10:39a - connecting Delta Flight departing at 11:18a will I have enough time to get to connecting flight (39 minutes)?

     

    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that should be enough time. All Delta gates are connected inside security.

    Hi, I'm arriving with Delta from Amsterdam and catching a connected Delta flight to Montreal. I have 1:45 minutes between my flights, should this be enough? Thanks!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time but leaves very little to spare as you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check your bags, then go through security and take the Delta shuttle bus to T2 where your Montreal flight will depart. It leaves little to no time to spare for delays.

     

  • Moscow-Tampa via JFK

    We fly from Moscow to JFK with Aeroflot, landing at T1 at 12:25. Our connecting Delta flight leaves from T2 at 14:59. Do we need to collect our luggage, or are they checked directly to Tampa? Do we have enough time to relocate to T2 given the passport control and stuff? Tickets were bought for all the way, i.e. Moscow-Tampa, and as I understood Aeroflot and Delta are partners. Any advice is appreciated!

     

    In T1 you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags (even though they will be tagged to TPA in Moscow). You will then take the AirTrain to T2, go through security, and to your departure gate. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time but not much to spare.

     

  • international to domestic

    I'll be arriving at international terminal at 8pm from Manila via PAL and have a domestic flight to LasVegas with United at 10pm, is 2hrs enough to go thru immigration&customs and be at the United counter in the domestic terminal? And UA ticket states we have to be at the check-in counter 45min before which cuts our transfer time to 1.15hrs. Any tips on how to be faster to make it at the check-in counter on time? It is our first time in LAX.

     

    It will be very very difficult. It is a good 20 minute walk to the United check-in counters, so you'll have to be out of customs 55 minutes after your plane is scheduled to arrive to make it on-time.

     

    thank you for your insight, if we ride airport transportation would it be faster than 20min walking? Do we drop our luggage in TBIT United transfer desk or we drag it all the way with us to check-in at United Terminal 8?

     

    At that time of night, the bus may be faster. You'll have to see how traffic is moving. I'm guessing it won't save you much time. If your bags are tagged through to LAS by PAL then you can drop them at the United transfer desk in the TBIT. Otherwise you will have to bring them with you to T7.

     

    I asked PAL, they would not tag it thru LAS since my tickets are separate airline bookings, if i do online check-in and pre-print boarding pass and drop my luggage at curbside check-in, it might be faster? Where is the curbside checkin at TBIT? Your help is much appreciated

     

    There is no curbside checkin at the TBIT. You'll have to take the bags with you to T7.

     

  • Enough Time

    I need to know if I have enough time to get from UA 5387 to Alaska 157 if I arrive at LAX at 6:57 p.m. and depart on the Alaska flight at 7:45 p.m. I don't know where either airline is located. I will have checked my bag all the way when I depart San Luis Obispo for LAX.

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 8 and depart from Terminal 6. They are connected inside security. However, you will absolutely have to check-in for your Alaska flight online before you leave on your United flight. This itinerary also leaves little to no time for any delays.

     

    Thanks for the information. It was very helpful.
