    Nov 5, 2014

    Hello. I'm looking a purchasing a flight phx to gig via iah and it has a one hour layover in iah. It is united for both flight legs. Would this generally be enough time to make the connection?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do in IAH is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • 1 hour transit in fco from Beirut to Madrid

    I am travelling from Beirut to Madrid on Friday. My transit time is 1 hour only in Fiumicino Airport. The plane stops on tarmac and the transfer to the airport is by bus. Do i have time to change from T3 to T1 and catch my flight to Madrid ?

     

    It will depend on your first flight being on-time. It's doable.

     

  • Claim Baggage for Connecting Flights in DFW

    My parents will fly from PVG to DFW via flight AA 128 on Nov, 10, then connect the flight AA 2396 to ATL after 2 hours 30 minutes. Do they have to claim baggage even though two flights operated by same air company (AA)? The flights where booked together. Thank you!

     

    Yes, they will arrive in Terminal D go through US Immigration, claim their bags, go through US Customs, then re-check their bags at the transfer desk, then they will go through security and to their departure gate. Once they are through security the Skylink train connects all terminals inside security.

     

  • Transfering from United to Lufthansa flight 1 hr

    I will be transfering from United to Lufthansa airline on a 1 hr layover in frnakfurt. Will I be able to make this transfer. Looks like both airlines are in terminal 1.

     

    Yes, but it doesn't leave much time for any delays.

     

    Why?

     

    I have the same issue for an upcoming trip: Assuming carry-on bags does this transfer involve customs and passport control or just passport control? (US to Barcelona via FRA)

    1 1/2 hour layover in Amsterdam. Flying Delta Portland, OR to Edinburgh. Will I need to go through customs? Do I have enough time?

     

    You will not go through Immigration or Customs in Amsterdam as you will not be entering the Schengen area. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate and go through security.

     

  • Transfer from terminal 3 to terminal 1

    I fly from Belgrade to Bologna via Rome with ALITALIA. Transfer time is only 1 hour. Arrival time (from Belgrade) is 13:40 and departing time for Bologna is 14:40. Do I have enough time to transfer and how easily and quickly to transfer from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1? I only have hand luggage. Where I go to passport control, in Roma or in Bologna? Thanks in advance.

     

    You will have enough time but it doesn't leave much time to spare. You will go through Schengen passport control and security in Rome.

    I'm flying into FRA from Seattle on Condor air. I have a 1hour 20 min tester time to LuF flight to Venice. Will we make it? Will we go through a fast transfer flight? Will our baggage be sent through to Venice? Thank you

     

    Its LH not Luf. I dont think you will make it

     

    A little more details would be helpful. Other than the LH vs Luf correction.

     

  • SAN--> SEA --> YYJ

    I am travelling from san Diego to victoria, stopping over at seattle. It was all bought on one ticket. I am flying alaska airlines so all I will have to do at seattle is simply walk to my departure gate? On the way home I am flying from YYJ to SAN with a stop over in seattle. The flight numbers are alaska 2387 and alaska 484…so i will have to go through immigration, collect bags, go through customs and re check bag…but where do i re-check it? It is a ticket bought together straight from YYJ to SAN. Thanks!

     

    oh i forgot to mention, i have a 3.5 hour stop over in seattle on the way there and the way back. Is this long enough?

     

    Oh and since my ticket was booked together that means I don't need to re-check in at Seattle on the way home right?

     

    On your way to Victoria you only have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Seattle. You will go through Canadian Immigration in Victoria. On your way to San Diego, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate to San Diego.

     

  • Conection time enough?

    I will arrive in DFW at 10:09 am and scheduled to take another flight to Vail EGE at 11:40 am. Is 1:31 enough time to make the connection? The flights where booked together and Im flying AA. Thank you very much.

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All gate are connected inside security by the SkyLink train.

     

    Thanx for the answer. I forgot to say that Ill be arriving to DFW from mexico city and have to go through customs and immigration. Is it still enough time?

     

    Yes, that should still be enough time, but does leave less time to spare.

     

    Did you make it?

     

  • Flight from Bermuda to Newark NJ via PHL
    Nov 4, 2014

    Hi all, I am looking to book a flight and have limited options. I'm flying from Bermuda to Newark NJ via PHL. The layover is 1hr 10 mins which doesn't sound like a lot of time to me. We are only taking carry on luggage. Is this even possible to make on time? I have never been to PHL airport, so I'm not sure what exactly I'm dealing with. Any help is appreciated!

     

    Bermuda has US Customs and Immigration preclearance so your arrival into PHL will be like a domestic flight. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Your departure gate is likely in Terminal F so you will have to take a shuttle bus (which runs inside security) there. You have enough time.

     

  • Washington (IAD) > AMS > Newcastle (NCL)

    I am getting the 18:05 flight from Washington IAD to Amsterdam AMS, due to arrive at 7:20. My flight from AMS to NCL starts boarding at 7:30 but does not depart until 8:20, is this enough time? Will I have to go through security and customs?

     

    I should note - both flights are on KLM, departing flight to Newcastle is from gate D05, but I do not know what my arrival terminal in Amsterdam is...

     

    All KLM flights in Amsterdam are in the same terminal. You will have to go through security at your departure gate but will not have to go through passport control or customs since you will not be entering the Schengen area. You will go through UK Immigration and Customs when you get to Newcastle.

     

    Also, you should have enough time.

    daughter has only 41 mins to get to connecting flight (from Burlington VT to Seattle) both on Delta. Enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All Delta gates at DTW are connected inside security. It obviously doesn't leave much time to spare inc ase of delays though.

    Hello ! Im flying on march 30 from AMS-to IAH ( UA59 )with a layover time of 2 hours for my flight to TPA.Is this enough time ? And do i have to recheck my luggage ? ( i was told by a friend that the luggage will go directly to the next plane , if the label says TPA ! true or false ? THX!

     

    Your friend is wrong. Upon arrival in IAH Terminal E you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate which will likely be in Terminal C. You have enough time.

     

    Thanks for the correct info. ZAP ! greetings from Holland (:

     

  • T3 to T5 Transfer
    Nov 4, 2014

    i have AA flight from SFO to ORD coming into T3 and then a flight from T5, Etihad Airways to AbuDabhi. Tickets are booked together. I assume the baggage will go thru to the final destination. Do i need to come out of the security zone on T3 and then make a train transfer to T5? or can i internally go to T5 without having to go through the security again.

     

    Yes, your bags will be checked through to your final destination. Yes, you will have to exit T3 and take the ATS train one stop to T5 and go back through security.

     

  • Going from Terminal 1 to 5 in 45 minutes

    I have a flight landing in ORD at 6:30PM at terminal 1 and going to Zurich from terminal 5 at 7:15. Is 45 minutes enough time to make it to that flight?

     

    It's possible but doesn't leave much time for delays. It will take you 15-20 minutes to get to T5 on the ATS train, leaving only 20-25 minutes to get through security and to your departure gate.
