  • Gate distances from D to C

    Arriving on Southwest from Sacramento, flight will be delayed and no time left to get to next Southwest flight goes to San Antonio from gate D7 to C2 how far is that?

     

    They are in adjacient "fingers" of the terminal. Maybe a 5-10 minute walk.

     

  • China to US connecting in YVR, Air Canada and United

    I'm flying from China back to US via YVR. First leg is Air Canada and second is United. Does anyone know if I will get my bags checked all the way to my final destination when I check in in China? Thank you!

     

    Yes, since Air Canada and United are in Star Alliance you should be able to have your bags checked through to the US.

     

    Thank you! That's really helpful!

     

  • immigration, baggage, customs, transfer - Delta JFK. How does it work?

    We (2 US nationals) will arrive on Delta from Frankfurt, then fly to Tampa on Delta. Do we change terminals? Do we first go through immigration and customs, then recheck luggage? Do we change terminals? How long does all this usually take? We have 2 hours.

     

    You will go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US customs, then re-check your baggage with Delta in Terminal 4. Your flight to Tampa could leave from either Terminal 4 or Terminal 2. If you leave from Terminal 4, you will just go back through security and to your gate. If from Terminal 2 you can either go through security in T4 and take Delta's shuttle bus to T2, or take the AirTrain to T2 and go through security there (the second option will probably be slightly faster). You should have enough time.

     

    Thanks. I'm happy to know what we can expect.

     

  • Connecting from a domestic flight to international at JFK

    I'm planning on flying from Buffalo to JFK and then connecting to my Qatar Airways flight to Doha. Assuming I fly from buffalo with either Jet Blue or Delta I know I'll have to collect my luggage but will I have to clear customs and immigration as well? How long should I allow to make the connection?

     

    No, since both Buffalo and New York City are in the United States (actually in the same state), you don't have to go through any customs or immigration.

     

    Thanks. I realise that but wasn't sure if I could move between terminals airside or whether I would have to go landslide which would involve customs and passport control as I will be flying out of the US. To date in my travels I've managed to avoid JFK.

     

    Going landside does NOT require customs or passport control since you are arriving on a domestic flight. The only time you go through US customs or passport control is when you ARRIVE in the US.

     

  • Calgary, Alberta to DEN to Kansas City, MO

    I am traveling to Kansas City by Delta Airlines with a layover in Denver. I am unsure of what terminal I arrive in and which one I depart from. I will have just a carry on and will have cleared US Customs at Calgary International. I also have some mobility issues. Is there help available?

     

    I will be flying United, not Delta

     

    Denver only has one terminal. All United gates in Denver are on the same concourse - concourse B. If you need assistance you should request wheelchair assistance by calling United before your flight.

     

  • T3 to international in 59 min?
    Dec 23, 2013

    Being offered a ticket from Vegas to Europe for a good price but it includes flying in to SFO T3 (United) then out on Lufthansa 59 min later. Bags should be checked through, but I still doubt whether this is feasible?

     

    There is a secure-side connection between T3 and the International terminal. If your first flight is on-time you will be able to make your connection as all you will have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    A few flights from South America come in around that time. It's not a heavy peak time of day.

    I am arriving at Terminal 5 from Philadelphia and connecting to terminal 2 for a flight to Jackson hole in Wyoming. I have a carry on bag. Do I have to go through security again?

     

    If you arrive at T5 'from Philadelphia' in which which Airport is your connecting flight?

    Went to get a bottle of wine uncorked... Girl threw corkscrew at me... Extremely rude. Luckily young man with better manners stepped in and opened the wine for us. I wish I could give names. The wine was purchased at ciao.

    We are arriving at Terminal 5 and leaving from Terminal 1 - I know that we will most likely have to clear immigration/customs at Terminal 5 - but do we have to transport our checked baggage from there to Terminal 1 prior to going back through security? Will we have enough time?

     

    Yes you have enough time. On arrival, go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and re-check-in bags; then proceed up one level to the Airport Transit System (ATS) station (follow signs)& take the ATS train, which runs every few minutes, to T1, where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate.

    i am coming by aircanada and leaving by airindia at jfk, i will have two check in baggage. could you guide me how to carry those two baggage and one carry bag while going airtrain

     

    If you departed from a Canadian airport which has US customs clearance, you need not go through passport control & customs clearance at JFK. Also, if you purchased your flights on one ticket, or your AirIndia flight is a code-share with AirCanada - your bags will automatically be transferred - if not, you need to claim your bags and re-check them in at T4. To get from T7 to T4 take the 'Airline Terminals' train (your next stops are T5, then T4. If you can't manage taking your bags on the train, get a trolley and exit T7, taking a taxi - in both cases you need to go through security check at T4 before proceeding to your gate.

     

    thanks for the info
