  • Halifac to Toronto to NY to Hong Kong
    Feb 10, 2013
    I'm flying Air Canada from Halifax to Toronto then to New York to Hong Kong with Cathy Pacific, lay over for 2 and half hours at JFK, will that be enough? Do I have check my bags again?


    It should be plenty of time. You will preclear US Customs in Toronto.


    Do I have to recheck my bags?


    you will claim and recheck your bags when entering the US Departures area in Toronto. From there the next time you will have to claim your bags will be in Hong Kong.


    I only have 1 hour and 25 mins in Toronto, will that be enough?


  • Terminal 8 connections
    Feb 4, 2013
    I will be flying into JFK terminal 8 from Dublin Ireland and I have a connecting flight to Raleigh which also departs from terminal 8. I will be clearing immigration control at Dublin airport so there will be no delays when I land, will 60 minutes be enough time to get off the first flight and make it to the second or should I consider a later connecting flight?


    Yes, if your flight from Dublin is on time then 1 hour is fine. Terminal 8 isn't that big.


  • Layover
    Feb 4, 2013
    I'm flying from akron canton airport. Layover in Detroit for 51 min. Coming from gate C22 to A8. Is this enough time??


    Yes, connecting in DTW is pretty easy. It's a big terminal but there's a train if you have to go to either end of A. It shouldn't take more than 15 minutes.


  • connected at CLT from SFO to JFK
    Feb 5, 2013
    Hi, I will be flying from San Francisco to New York(JFK) on Feb,7 by US airways. I will be connect my flights at CLT airport. I have 1h2min of layover and since it seems US Airways serves every terminal. So I don't know which terminal is to arrive and which one to depart, I am not sure if I can have time enough to make my connection? Thanks !


    There is only one terminal in Charlotte and all the gates are connected beyond security. If your flight is on time you will have plenty of time.


    Oh, it means that I do not have to go through the security check and check in again even if I wanna go to another terminal, is it? That sounds so great!

    You need to tell us what airlines you are taking if you want to know what terminals you will be in.

  • Customs at terminal 8
    Feb 4, 2013
    My mom is traveling from Columbus to Brazil. She will board at columbus to jFK and from there to Brazil, all within AA flights. Does she have to go trought customs at JFK or it will be only in Columbus ( which is an international airport as well)? In case she will need to pass customs again in NY, will she need to pick up luggage ans re-check in?


    On the trip from Columbus to Brazil, she will clear customs in Brazil. On the trip from Brazil to Columbus, she will clear customs in JFK. On that trip she will have to claim her luggage at JFK while going through immigration then drop it back off with AA before going through security again at JFK.


    Thank you!She will ony have to go through security in Columus or does she also have to pass by atterminal 8 in JFK ( meaning, showing the passport and metal detector) ? She is 72y and not very fast.. . As she has only 1:30h to change aircrafts, I am afraid she will need to hush ans mybe get confused... But I guess, she will not change terminals. Thanks, again for further advice.


    Both her flights will be in terminal 8 at JFK so she won't have to go through security on her way to Brazil there. If you're concerned about her in the airport you can request wheelchair service (which is free). Just call the airline to do so.


  • leaving airport
    Feb 4, 2013
    Hi Im flying from Miami to Birmingham with a stop off at Newark airport there is 10 hours between my connecting flight. Am I able to leave the airport to visit new york if my baggage has been checked all the way through to Birmingham or do I have to check my baggage out and then re-check when I return to the airport?


    Airline policies differ - it is best to contact your airline.


    If your bags are checked through then you can leave/return to the airport as you wish. They will be transferred to your next flight despite the long connection.

    I am coming in on Frontier 1056 and leaving on Frontier 853. Are the terminals close enough to make the time? We are seniors Please let me know


    At DEN you arrive & depart from the Jeppesen Terminal's Concourse A, which has gates A24-39 & A40-68. Just follow signs.


  • From Toronto to LGA then to O'Hare
    Feb 4, 2013
    ON Feb 5 I'm arriving from Toronto (YYZ) to LGA (not sure what terminal it arrives) at 6:43. Then taking a connecting flight to O'Hare at 8 PM at gate C9. Can someone give me an idea on where I need to go. I just have carry on luggage. Thanks!


    Wanted to add that I arrive in terminal B from Toronto and have to catch the connecting flight at terminal C. What is the most efficient way to get there the fastest? Thanks!


    1. Do make sure to go through US customs precleance at Toronto! 2. At LaGuardia, your arrival depends on which airline you are taking. (your departing C gates would be in Terminal C - which does not have a C9 gate. I suggest you open then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.


    1. Do make sure to go through US customs precleance at Toronto! 2. At LaGuardia, on arrival at Terminal B, look at overhead screens to find your connecting flight & gate number. To get to Terminal C, you need to exit the terminal and take the free shuttle bus, Route A, running every 10-15 mins, - or take a taxi. Note, however, that Terminal C has gates gates C15-C44 (gates C26 & C28 are in the center, C15-24 are at East, and C29-44 are at West) - there is no gate C1 listed. At TC, you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. I suggest you open then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • time needed to get from terminal D to F
    Feb 4, 2013
    I am landing from toronto - i think in terminal D and takeoff in terminal F - without any delays I have 1 hour 18min between flights. Is this enough time? is the train the best way to get between? thx


    On arrival at ATL, at Concourse D,take the underground Plain Train to Concourse F. You have sufficient time.

    Terminal 2 F12B to Terminal 1 B17,how to get it asap?


    Just follow the signs and walk. It's a 10 minute walk if you move briskly. You don't need to go through security again.


  • flight to lisbon
    Feb 3, 2013
    Can I check my bag in Seattle all the way through to Lisbon even though I have to change planes in Newark. Is an hour layover in Neward enough to make my connection? Will it be better not check,m just have a carry on? Leaving June 13 return June 27. US Airway flight.


    US Airways does not fly SEA-Newark or Newark-Lisbon. Are you sure you're not on United? An hour is tight, but doable. Yes, United would check your bags through to Lisbon in Seattle.


  • Terminal C to Terminal A from Shannon
    Feb 3, 2013
    I'm flying into Newark on the 7th June from Shannon. Flight scheduled to land @ 11:20. My connecting flight to Nashville leaves from Terminal A @ 12:24. With the full pre-clearance facilities at Shannon and my bags checked all the way to Nashville can I make this connection? Thanks


    Yes, assuming your flight is on time it should be pretty easy.
