  • Flying in from glasgow to halifax via newark

    What terminal does the halifax flight leave from and is 1.5 lay enough time togo through customs and imgration?

     

    1.5 hours is pushing it, but is probably possible. The Halifax flights usually leave from Terminal A, so if that's the case then when you go through customs and re-check your bags, you will have to take the AirTrain to Terminal A, go back through security and to your gate.

     

    THanks be myself but as long as i know i can re check before going to termiinla A. AM sure thre flight comes into terminal c from glagsow. left from there on the way out.

     

  • DEN to IAD then 1hr connection to LHR (London) Enough Time?

    I arrive at IAD from Den at 8:55 p.m. Sun., Dec. 15, 2013, depart to London LHR 10:00 p.m. Both are United. Is one hour enough time to make the connection? What terminals are these likely to be at? I did book both at the same time.

     

    Both flights will be on the C/D concourse at IAD. All you will have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. As such, if your first flight is on-time you will have enough time.

     

  • Stockholm to Denver, 1 hour transfer at. FRA?
    Nov 27, 2013

    We just flew from Denver to Stockholm via FRA. We were both extremely surprised at the whole "bus gate" thing where we had to take a bus to get to our plane. On the way back we only have 1 hour, 5 minutes to make the connection. I'm very concerned now about that, especially if we arrive at a bus gate and have to wait for the bus to fill up, in addition to going through passport control, that this is a long shot. Is it doable or should I try to change to an earlier flight from Stockholm?

     

    You won't have to go through immigration in Frankfurt on your return as both Sweden and Germany are in Schengen. All you will have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate and go through security at your gate. You should have enough time.

     

    Really? That'd be be ideal. I thought transferring to a US flight though I'd have to go through it.

     

    You will go through US immigration in Denver. That's the only immigration you'll have to go through.

    Quality surprisingly high for airport food. Local chain not ruined by large-chain mediocrity. Best food I've found in Dulles.

    Hi, I´ll have a delta connection in DTW from Miami to Sao Paulo (Brazil) and only 55minutes to do it. Will it be enough? Wich concourse will I arrive and depart?

     

    You will both arrive and depart in the A Concourse of the McNamara Terminal. If your first flight is on-time you'll have enough time.

    I am flying from Regina sk Canada to San Jose Costa Rica with a 1hr11min lay over in Denver. Will this be enough time to clear customs and make my flight?

     

    Yes, but you will have to hurry. You will arrive in the A concourse and then follow escalators to the upper level of the pedestrian bridge to the main terminal. There you will go through US immigration, claim your baggage and clear customs. You can then re-check your bags and take the underground train to concourse A if you are on the nonstop flight to SJO on Frontier or Concourse B if you're connecting in Houston to take United. It's a pretty tight connection but you should be OK if your first flight is on-time. However, if you miss your connection I don't know how you'll get to San Jose because Frontier only flies from Denver to San Jose a few times a week.

    Quiet, good food and plentiful outlets. Good coffee and pastries, sandwiches. Tucked behind two escalators and shard with "Simply Books" this place is the only place I go at ATL

     

  • Time to move between terminals.

    Hi! I am geting to Terminal C in Philadelphia from Grensboro at 16.50 and I am supposed to go to the terminal A to catch my flight to Madrid at 18.45. Is it enough time to do it? Will I have any kind of trouble? Thank you so much. I appreciate it.

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. They are connected beyond security by moving walkways.

     

    Thank you so much!

     

  • Arriving from LHR on BA and connecting with Delta to Charleston

    Hi, I will be traveling from London via JFK in early December. My flight from London is with BA arriving at 2:25 pm and I will be connecting with Delta at 6:30 pm. The tickets were purchased separately. I would greatly appreciate any information as to how to best make the connection and if I have enough time to do so. Thank you so much.

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 7 where you will go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, and go through US Customs. You will then have to take your baggage on the JFK AirTrain/Air Terminals Train to Terminal 2 where you will check-in with Delta and go through security. You should have plenty of time.

     

    Great! Thank you.

  • Connecting flight at Dallas

    Hi - my son travels from Sydney to Dallas on 29 Nov arr 1.45 Terminal D. He then departs for Charlotte NC on United Airlines 3071 at 15.54. What is procedure and does he have enough time to catch connecting flight?

     

    Note that United does not fly from Dallas to Charlotte. His flight is actually US Airways flight 1954. Upon arrival in Dallas he will clear US immigration, claim his bags, and go through US Customs. If his bags are checked through to his US Airways flight he will then be able to re-check his bags at the re-check desk in Terminal D. If he already has his US Airways boarding pass (he can possibly print it out before departure from Sydney) he then can go through security in Terminal D and then take the Skylink train to Terminal E. If he can't get his US Airways boarding pass for whatever reason until he gets to Dallas or if his bags aren't tagged through to Charlotte in Sydney, he will have to take the Terminal Link shuttle van from Terminal D to Terminal E and then check-in with US Airways.

    LEAVING ON DELTA FLIGHT 4913 FROM MSP ON DEC 12. WHAT GATE WILL WE BE DEPARTING FROM?

     

    You won't know the exact gate until the day of your departure, but all Delta flights leave from the Lindbergh Terminal.

     

  • Change of terminals

    Hi, I'm travelling from Phoenix to London via Chicago on 15 Dec. My flight from Phoenix arrives in Terminal 3 and departs to London from Terminal 5. What are my options for change of terminal? Also do I have to go through check-in process and security check again? Please advise. Thanks

     

    What airlines are you flying? If your tickets were bought on the same itinerary your bags should be able to be checked through to London (although that may depend on the airlines you are flying). If you are flying in on AA and out on BA then American runs a shuttle bus that runs inside the secure area from T3 to T5. However, you will have to show your BA boarding pass to board the shuttle. If you give me more information I can help you more.

     

    Hi, thanks for the info. I'm flying out on American Airlines fro Phoenix to Chicago and the flying out by BA. Will I get the boarding pass for BA flight at the Phoenix airport? Also will AA check-in the baggage all the way to London? Thanks

     

    Yes, American should be able to check your bags through to London and issue you your BA boarding pass in Phoenix. I'm trying to find a map that shows the shuttle bus but I can't find one, only mention I can find of it is an older flyertalk thread - http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/american-aadvantage/1254976-ord-airside-connection-t3-aa-ba-t3-t5.html . If you have trouble finding the shuttle or don't want to wait 30 minutes for it, you can also take the ATS Train, but doing so requires that you go back through security in T5.

    arrive DFW terminal A; leave American Eagle to Lubbock. Unable to locate correct terminal and gate.

     

    Your flight to Lubbock will most likely depart from B. All terminals at DFW are connected inside security via the skylink train.

    flying with UA from SFO to EWR and have 90 minutes to catch the flight to Ireland (Also UA) will I have to collect my bags and recheck them? Will I also have to go through security there again? Is this enough time?

     

    No, all you will have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will both be in Terminal C and connected beyond security.
