    At PHL, free large US Airways shuttle buses make connect at post-security FROM Terminal F (gate F14) To Terminal C (gates C1).


  • connecting time of 2 h - enough
    Oct 1, 2013
    we are flying to JFK from CUN, have to collect bags and re-check in for flight to Europe. is two hours enough? thank you!


    What airlines are you flying? Even on the same airline that will be very difficult.


    from CUN to JFK with aeromexico, from JFK to OSL with Norwegian


    I highly doubt you will have enough time for that connection - you should not have bought it. You will have to go through US immigration, claim your bags, go through customs, then take your bags upstairs and check in with Norwegian. Unless your Aeromexico flight is very early you will have a hard time doing that in enough time.


    thank you for your response - can you estimate how much time do we need?


  • Connecting from UK to Canada at EWR without security?
    Sep 26, 2013
    I am flying into EWR Terminal B with a United Flight and then on to Canada also with a United flight from Terminal A. I have 2.5hrs but am concerned about EWR delays. Will I be able to check luggage all the way from UK to Canada and transfer from Terminal B to A without going through security/customs/immigration?


    You will check your bags through to Canada but you will have to claim them in US immigration in Terminal B and then re-check after clearing US customs at the re-check desk. Every person entering the US from abroad has to go through US immigration, even if they are transferring to a third country. After you check your bag you will have to take the AirTrain to your departure terminal. Also be sure to check your flight status as many United and United Express flights also use Terminal C.


  • Help with Connection
    Sep 26, 2013
    We have 2 couples traveling from Heathrow to Newark (flight UA28) with a connection to Columbus (Flight UA3859). My concern being they only have a 90 minute lay-over. What tips can I share with them to ensure they don't miss their flight.


    That's very tight for such a connection. The only tip I can offer is that they can pay for Economy Plus to sit as far in front of the plane as they can. However, it appears to me that they should have more than 90 minutes as it looks like currently UA28 arrives around 12:30 PM and UA3859 leaves at 2:50 PM, meaning that they would have around 2 hours 20 minutes, which is more doable.


  • T4 to T2 connection
    Sep 26, 2013
    I Am flying on Virgin Atlantic into JFK Terminal 4, I land at 12:15 and need to go through immigration collect baggage, Transfer to Terminal 2 for a delta flight, and check in. My connecting flight leaves at 14:55, is this going to be enough time?


    You have enough time for transfer: Take your bags after customs clearance onto the 'Airline Terminals' train (follow signs), running every few minutes, but counter-clockwise: After boarding it at T4, it will stop at T3, and get you to T2, where you go to the departure level and check in your bags with Delta, go through security check and on to your gate.


  • Connection between terminal 3 and 5
    Sep 25, 2013
    Hi, I am arriving from Beirut, Lebanon on Alitalia terminal 3 at 11:10 am and have to catch a flight on delta to New York from terminal 5 at 12:50 pm. I am going to the US on a tourist visa. Will the time be enough to transi?


    Hmm, I don't know. You will have to go through EU immigration in T3 first, then take a bus, which runs on Italian time (no schedule), and then check in, go through security, and a security interview, which I suspect may take longer than usual since you're coming from Lebanon. It will be pretty tough.

    Flying from Birmingham to San Diego on United changing planes with 21 minutes between flights. The airline changed my flight with this new time. Is it even possible?


    It's possible but it will depend on your first flight getting in on-time or preferably early and running. If you call United they should put you on a later flight to SAN or earlier flight from BHM free of charge due to the schedule change. Or, alternatively they could re-book you to connect in Denver if that works better.


  • UA from Denver arr LAX then to Tom Bradley Intl
    Sep 25, 2013
    I'll fly from Denver to LA on Sunday 9/29, arriving 9.51am (terminal 6/7???) then I need to transfer to Tom Bradley Intl Terminal - have intl flight same day in the afternoon. How's the transfer from terminal (where UA(/domestic arrives) to intl terminal? Do you have locker services at Tom Bradley Intl Terminal? if possible i'd like to put one big one not to carry to Den at all. Pls respond asap. Tks.


    There are no lockers at LAX. It is approximately a 15 minute walk from Terminal 6/7 to the TBIT.


  • amount of time needed
    Sep 24, 2013
    how long will it take me to grab my luggage from hawaiian air baggage claim and then check in for another flight on alaska air at seatac?


    I would budget 2 hours between your flights.


  • Customs wait time
    Sep 24, 2013
    I'm arriving in to LAX on the 1st Dec, how long is the wait time for passport check and customs? I need to catch another plane from a the international terminal. Also how long does it take to check in again, passport check and security ? Do customs check every single passenger?


    December 1 usually isn't that busy of a time, but it depends on the time of day you're arriving and what terminal you're arriving in.


    T2,in the after noon.


    Probably won't be too bad then. You can probably make your connection in around 90-110 minutes.


  • connecting from hawaiian to alaska
    Sep 24, 2013
    hi, i arrive in seattle at 9:40pm and the latest connecting flight to spokane is at 11:00pm on alaska. i will have checked in luggage. do i have enough time to make my flight?


    Yes, if your first flight is on-time and your bags are checked through or you don't have checked bags you should have enough time. However, it might be difficult if you have to transfer bags yourself.


  • Enough time for connection?
    Sep 24, 2013
    Our Delta flight from CMH arrives 7:30 pm at terminal 2 gate 70. Our departing delta flight departs 8:37pm from terminal 4 gate B 36. Will we and our bags have enough time to connect?


    If your first flight is on-time that should be enough time. Delta runs a shuttle bus between Terminal 2 and 4 that runs inside security, so take that.


  • Connecting flight time
    Sep 23, 2013
    I´ll arrive from Dallas (UA 5265) at 8:26PM with a connecting flight to Rio de Janeiro (UA 129) departing at 21:10PM. Do you think Its a doable connecting time? tks


    That's very tight. Flights are frequently delayed late in the day. You will arrive in Terminal B and depart from Terminal E, which are connected beyond security by the TerminaLink Train. If you miss your connection you'll be spending the night and the whole next day in Houston.
