  • Term 5 to Term 3

    Arriving from Spain on friday 21st. AA at 14:10 and departing to SFO 16:30. is that gap enough to clear customs and change terms (from 5 to 3)? I've been told a buggage drop facility is within term 5 after customs clearance. Is that true?

     

    It will be close but you should be OK. If you miss your connection American will have a later flight to SFO you can be rebooked on. Yes, the baggage drop is inside Terminal 5 right after you exit customs.

     

  • connect time 52 minutes enough ?

    Is connecting time of 52 min enough on monday between: arriving flight UA 843 from San Diego - departing flight UA 972 to Brussels . I don't know which terminals we arrive/depart from. I suppose lugage will automatically be transfered. We are 4 trvalling (incl 2 children 13 & 9y)

     

    forgot to give the timetable: 17h08 : arriving flight UA 843 from San Diego 18h00 :departing flight UA 972 to Brussels

     

    Both of your flights will be in Terminal 1, either concourse B or C. The two concourses are connected by a short tunnel with moving walkways. It shouldn't take more than 15 minutes to get between your gates, even with the kids.

    My daughter is arriving from Chicago (18h30) heading to Johannesburg (19h30). how does she get to Gate E18 inless than 15 minutes?

     

    Well, from the times you posted, she has 60 minutes, not 15. She can take the PlaneTrain from the concourse she will arrive in (likely A, B or C, but possibly T or D) to concourse E. It can be done in less than 20 minutes.

    Hi, I'm flying Alitalia ORD to SVO with a stop at FCO. Arriving to FCO at 8:00am and departing for SVO at 10:40am. I believe I'll be arriving in terminal 3 and departing from terminal 3. I'll have to go through passport control, correct? Do I need to go through immigration too? Thank you!

    Arriving from Aukland, NZ 10:30 am on Air New Zealand. Wanting to book US Airways to Phoenix @ 12:45. Will I have enough time coming in International to Terminal 1 with customs?

     

    You can probably make that connection as you will arrive in Terminal 2, not the TBIT (unless you're looking at booking a ticket in 2014), and US departs from Terminal 1.

    Arriving on USair from Philadelphia connecting on AA to Lima,Peru-will I need to go thru security on arrival in Miami?

     

    Yes, as your US Airways flight will arrive in J and your American flight will depart from D or E on the opposite side of the airport.

    I arrive at gate G7 at 5:10pm and Depart at 6:05pm at gate K15. Will I have time to make my connection? Do I have to go through security again?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. No you won't have to go through security again.

     

    You arrive at Terminal 3, at its Concourse G; exit the concourse and walk over to Concourse K (same terminal) which has gates K1-K20. No need for security check.

    My daughter and her friend are flying solo for the first time tomorrow. Their flight arrives at ATL gate C7 and connects at D11. What's the simplest way to advise them to travel between gates that can be done in the 45 minute window they have between flights? Thank you, A worried mom

     

    They just take the Plane Train 1 stop from C to D. It's very simple and can be done in that time. Their gates may change before tomorrow, so they should be prepared for that, but the process is still the same, take the plane train between concourses.

     

    My fear is that they will find that confusing or miss their stop. Would it be possible for them to just walk between concourses?

     

    There's a walkway through the same tunnel that the train goes through. However, I think you really underestimate your daughter. It's a very simple system.

    Hi, I'm flying with Alitalia indirect flight, (AZ 201 and AZ 782) from London Heathrow to Tokyo with a connection at FCO Rome Fiumicino. The connection time will be 1h15mins and it's within Terminal 3. I'd like to know if there will be enough time for the transition? I'm a UK citizen so I guess I'll have to pass the passport control (Non-schegen) and additional security checks? Will Alitalia book me onto next flight to Tokyo if I missed it. Thanks in advance! Mike

     

    Yes, you should have enough time. If you miss your connection AZ will book you on the next flight, but that would probably be the next day.

    I have in July a transfer for 1,30 hour at Boston, coming from Amsterdam going to Orlando(MCO). Is this possible can I make it? And do I have to transfer also my luggage?

     

    What airlines are you flying?

     

    Delta/KLM

    I am flying Delta from Dallas to JFK (DELTA CONNECTION) and then to Moscow SVO. I have only 55min layover. Do I need to change terminals and if so, do I need to go through the security check again in jfk?

     

    You may have to change terminals from 2 to 4. However, if you do, Delta runs a shuttle between the two terminals that runs on the secure side, so you won't have to go through security.

    Non revving thru DEN connecting on ZK to RIW. What airline should I non rev into DEN on so that my bag has the best interline connection transfer chance to make it? Who works ZK in DEN?

     

    If you're non-revving you can't check a bag through to a different airline.

     

    Isn't it an FAA regulation to check bags as the passenger is ticketed...to their final destination?

     

    Or is it because I'm not confirmed? ZK does have ticketing and baggage agreements with other airlines. Is two hours enough time to claim and recheck?

     

    When you're non-revving you aren't ticketed to your final destination on a single ticket if you're using two different airlines. 2 Hours will probably be enough time. You could also jam your stuff in a carry on like most non-revs do. It will be gate checked on the ZK flight. Use whatever airline to get to DEN that you have the best chance getting on (assuming you're non-revving on your first flight as well). Where are you coming from? You'll easily get on as a nonrev on the DEN-RIW flight but if load factors from most places to DEN are very high and it could be tough to get on, especially as a ZED/ID-90 employee.

    how long does it take to get from terminal 3 to terminal 4. flight gets in from dallas on American at 900 and flight leaves on us air at 0952 to California.... is that enough time or should take a later flight?

     

    That's awfully tight, especially if that's 9AM when the security lines will be pretty long. I'd try to change your flight and leave at least 90 minutes for your connecton, erring to the side of 2 hours.

     

  • Delta flights from SHN to JFK to LAX

    Hey, just wondering when checking in at Shannon will our bags go all the way through to LAX? We have a 3 hour layover in JFK....will we have to check in again for the connecting flight or will it be a case of just going through security again in JFK? The two flights are both with delta airlines and were bought together through KLM, will we have to transfer terminals also? Any information would be really helpful :-)

     

    You arrive & depart from Terminal 4 at JFK Airport. As Shannon does not have US customs clearance, on arrival at JFK you need to go through passport check, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance & re-check-in your bags where indicated. Bags will be transferred to your next flight. Proceed to the departures level which opens up to the Concourse level with security checkpoints on either end for Concourses A or B (A & B gates). You have plenty of time.

     

    Sujun is incorrect. Flights from shannon are precleared and your bags will be checked straight through to LAX.
