  • 1.5 hrs enough to connect from UA domestic to Korean Air internationa

    1.5 hrs enough to connect from United Airlines domestic terminal (from Denver) to Korean Air international terminal? We have checked luggage and a toddler. Thank you in advance for your advice!!

     

    Were your tickets bought on one reservation? If not you'll have to claim your luggage and take it to Korean yourself and if so I don't think that's enough time.

    We are going to Korea on Korean Air. Thanks.

    The domestic and international portions are not on one ticket, which means we have to get the luggage out and then check them in at the international terminal. We're thinking 1.5 hours is way too little time to get the luggage and then get to the international check-in and make the flight. What are your thoughts?

    I agree, that is not enough time.

     

    Today's listing of United's Denver arrivals are all but one (in T1) in T3, while Korean Air departs from gate A6 of the International terminal. I suggest you call United at 800-864-8331 to find out if they transfer bags. Note that at SFO, Domestic passengers transferring from T3 to the International Terminal may transfer via a connector walkway (located post-secuirty near gate 75) to the International Terminal's Boarding Area G arriving at post-security near gate G92. If they have not yet checked in for their connecting flight, they need to stop by at their airline counter in the Main Hall and then take either the AirTrain or walk to the International Terminal, where they need to go through security check before proceeding to their connecting gate.

     

  • Connection time 1.5h between Terminal 4 and 2

    I'll be arriving at JFK Terminal 4 form EU and catching a domastic flight at Terminal 2. Connection time is 1.5h. I'm not US citizen. Is 1.5h is enogh?

     

    That's a very tight connection. I think there's a good chance you'll miss your connection, so be prepared for that.

    I am arriving at terminal A & my husband is arriving at terminal C. We both have checked baggage. Where is the best place to meet to get a cab to the hotel?

     

    Just pick one of the baggage claims (preferably whichever one of you gets in later).

    There are 8 persons arriving on a Delta flight and 8 persons arrivng on a Air Tran flight at the same time. If I have a motorcoach picking up one location how should i arrange it? Which terminal is best to meet?

     

    There is no easy way for those passengers to get to a single point. The shuttle will have to pick each group up separately.

     

    While AirTran uses Central Terminal B (B gates), Delta uses both Terminals C & D. Route A free shuttle buses run every 10-15 minutes between the terminals. Best place to meet: all terminals have on the Arrivals level a transportation information booth. Airport contact: 718-533-3400.

    what are the option to make my conncetion on time?

     

    Well, first hope your first flight is on-time, then take the TerminaLink Train and run. If your arrival into E is an international flight I really don't think you can make that connection. However, not many domestic flights arrive into E. How are you so sure you'll be arriving in E?

     

    it's a UAL flight from OKC sched in 12:?? - my wife is on the flight E is what they told her in OKC I can get the nbr would that help?

     

    UAL flight 1598 is showing early by :25 in to E15 UA4592 B84H on sched

     

    Yes, that would be one of the rare domestic flights that arrived into E. Since the flight arrived early she'll have over 40 minutes for her connection. Still tight, but doable.

    we arrive next tuesday on united 929 from london and need to get on united 1025 to phoenix. everyone at united seem confident we will be ok, but they would say that anyway. we have booked seats at the front of the econ plus cabin to minimis time leaving plan. we will have to have checked bags. any tips please?

     

    Yes, you should have enough time but you'll have to hurry. You'll re-check your bags with United in Terminal 5, then take the ATS train to Terminal 1 and go back through security. The checkpoint on the far left side of Terminal 1 (closest to Terminal 2) usually has the shortest lines.

     

    thanks Zap. I guess as soon as we see the state of immigration we will know if we have a chance.

    we will arrive with LH1082 at 16,10 term B, next flt with UA1082 from C term at 17,45.do we need to pick up bags, go through customs, passport control, then go by Aor train to C term? and to go to departures to check in bags, custems, passport control ?

     

    You will indeed clear immigration, claim bags, and customs in Terminal B. However you will be able to re-check your bags in Terminal B and don't have to take them with you to C.

    Where do I get dropped off for a flight leaving at gate n6

     

    If you need to check a bag, you get dropped off at the sign for your airline. if you don't need to check a bag, you can be dropped off anywhere at the main terminal.

     

  • Connection LH439 and LH758

    Hello, I am planning to travel from Dallas (DFW) to Chennai (MAA) by Lufthansa. But am worried about the layover of just 1 hour at FRA between LH439 and LH758. Is 1 hour enough to make it to the connecting flight? I cannot walk fast due to a medical condition. Will the gates be situated far apart? Please advice.

     

    Please help.. this is urgent

     

    You should have enough time. If you're worried about your ability to walk you can ask Lufthansa for assistance.

     

    U.S. Arrivals at FRA are being processed at Area A of Terminal 1 where they go through passport control only. Lufthansa uses both A & B gates. If you need to transfer between B gates (T1B) and A gates (T1A) use the SkyLine train inside security, which leaves every 2-3 mins. FRA is easy to navigate with international signs to guide you.

    Arriving from Boston to jfk on AA256 at 19:35. Need to catch the Emirates flight to Singapore EK 202 departing at 23:00 from terminal 4 jfk. What's the fastest way to do this? Can AA help with checking in my bags through to Singapore from Boston so that I do not have to collect/check-in my bags again at jfk? I do not have AA on my Emirates itinerary. Thanks!

     

    You can ask the AA desk in Boston but they aren't required to check the bags through to Emirates for you. The only way to do your connection is to take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train from T8 to T4 at JFK. If your bags aren't checked through to Singapore, you'll have to claim them first. However, you have a ton of time so you'll be OK unless your flight from Boston is heavily delayed.

     

    Thank you!

  • Which Terminals and How Much Time to Recheck Bags

    We will be flying into FCO from Frankfurt on Luftansa and then checking in with We will be flying into FCO from Frankfurt on Luftansa and then rechecking our bags for Alitalia flight to Venice. Which Terminals will we be flying in and out of and how much time should we allow for all of this?

     

    You will arrive in the Schengen side of Terminal 3 and depart from Terminal 1. I would allow 2 hours since you will have to deal with baggage transfer yourselves.

    On 9/25 I must go from T1 to Air France for Paris. Will Air France still be at T2 or will it be at TBIT?

     

    If your Air France flight is on the A380 it will be from the TBIT otherwise it will be in T2. If you post your Air France flight number I can help you.
