    Do any of the shops at CLT sell sunscreen?

     

  • Time btw T1 and T3 with checked luggage

    I will have to connect flying in from Houston with United Airlines and out to Waterloo (IA) with American Airlines 3005 at 7:55 pm. I will have luggage to check. Would UA 1575 arriving at 6:20 pm allow sufficient lay-over time, or should I take UA 1299 arriving at 5:09 pm to be on the safe side ?

     

    Yes it would be a better idea to use UA for both flights, as baggage claim, re-check & going through security check would make it extremely tight.

     

    United does not fly to Waterloo, Iowa so it's not an option. You could however fly American for both flights. Taking UA 1299 would leave you plenty of time assuming everything runs on-time. If you book your tickets on one itinerary you can even have your bags checked through to waterloo in Houston.

    Hi, I am flying Delta from San Francisco to JFK, arriving 8pm and then getting another Delta flight to Dublin at 9.30 pm. I think I arrive into, and depart from Term.4. I really need to get back that day, so I am getting worried that I won't make the flight. Will I have enough time to make the connection?

     

    at JFK, LAX & SFO Delta flights are in Terminal 2 - meaning you need to take the 'Airline Terminals Train' to Terminal 4 (follow signs) and there go through security check before proceeding to your gate. Concourse A has gates A2-7, Concourse B gates B20-40. NOTE: First phase of major reconstruction of T4 opens with fanfare next Friday. However, it possible that the Delta Shuttle bus from T2 to T4, gate to gate (with no security check at T4) will already be in place. Either way you should be able to make your connection on time.

     

    The Delta shuttle bus should be running.

     

  • McNamara to North terminal

    I'm arriving in McNamara (delta)

     

    You have to take a shuttle bus. I would allow at least 1.5 hours for such a transfer.

    HI YOU ALL, I`M FLYING SUNDAY MAY 19 FROM PANAMA, ARRIVING AT THE INTERNATIONAL TERMINAL, I SUPPOSE, AND CONNECTING TO MONTREAL. I HAVE 1:21 BETWEEN ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE TO GO THRU CUSTOMS, CLAIM BAGGAGE, HAND IT OVER FOR CONNECTION. NOT SURE IF I HAVE TO PASS SECURITY CHECK TO TAKE THE OTHER FLIGHT AND IF I WILL HAVE TIME ENOUGH. WHAT DO YOU THINK?

     

    ADDITIONAL INFO: FLYING DELTA ON BOTH LEGS. ARRIVAL TIME IS 1:24 P.M.

     

    Your transfer time at ATL will suffice. After debarkation, passengers walk the corridor towards the escalators taking them to the Arrivals level, where they go through customs & Immigration, then proceed to the baggage claim area which has 7 carousels. (a) Connecting passengers recheck-in their bags by proceeding to the transit area past baggage claim and turning left to baggage recheck counters, then follow signs to Concourse F Plane Train station, which connects all concourses (with gates E, D, C, B, A & T).

    Will I be able to make my Zurich to Rome connection within 60 minutes?

     

    The integrated Terminal at ZRH has Concourses A, B,, & E. While Concourse /Gates B/D are to the left, Concourse /Gates A are to the right, while the Skymetro takes you to Satellite Concourse /gates E. On arrival you need to go through 'non-Schengen' passport check before proceeding to your gate. Your time is very tight, but doable.

    We will be arriving from Tampa on 5-18 on flight 1722 and will be leaving for El Paso on flight 4263 what terminals will these be at?

     

    For the above they are United main for arriving flight and Express for El Paso flight. What terminals?

     

    Your flight from Tampa will arrive in C or E and your flight to El Paso will depart from Terminal B. You can take the TerminaLink train between the terminals.

     

    There are 2 Tampa flights: at 1:06 & 3:37pm both at Terminal C (no C gate number given); there are also 2 El Paso flights: at 3:15, Terminal B gate 81A, and at 1:36pm at gate T-B 84E - meaning you arrive at Terminal C and will connect to Terminal B via the inter-terminal underground train OUTSIDE of security - on arrival at TB you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting B gate.

     

    FRMAY - that is 100% incorrect. You can take the TerminaLink within secrity between your gates.

    I will be flying from Panama (pty) to Dulles and the connecting Dulles- Rome on saturday 18th. I have 2 hours from one flight to the next. Since both are international flights I have to go through costumes in Dulles, pick up my bags and drop them off for connecting flights. Do you think Ill have time? Do I have to go through TSA security point as well?

     

    At IAD, all international arrivals are being transported to the International Arrivals Building at the west end of the main terminal for TSA clearance: You need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag. Therefore, you cannot use the AeroTrain, but need to take the Mobile Lounge shutttle to either gates D1-32 and H-gates. D & C gates are connected, for A & B gates you need to take the AeroTrain. No security check needed. Two hours transfer time will be enough.

     

  • PRG - JFK - DEN with 2h30min layover

    Hi, I'm flying international from PRG to JFK Terminal 4 with DL211 which arrives at 16:30 and I need to catch 19:00 DL971 from the same terminal. Do you think 2:30 is enough to go through imigration, new second imigration SEVIS check, customs, check baggage and another security for domestic flight? Or should I look for another flights?

     

    That should be enough time

     

    Thanks for quick answer:) I have one more question, how does baggage re-checking work? Do I have to go to normal airline check-in counter or is there any other place to re-check?

     

    Delta will have a re-check desk right after you exit customs

     

  • Friend leaving from a different terminal

    Hi! I'm leaving from O'Hare and so is a close friend. We're trying to figure out how to stay together as long as possible before our flights. Mine leaves a few hours after hers, and I'm leaving from Terminal 3 while she's leaving from Terminal 1. Are either or both of these scenarios possible: 1) Can I check in at Terminal 3, she check in at Terminal 1, and can I walk to meet her at her gate after clearing security at Terminal 3? The terminals do connect after clearing security, right? OR 2) Can I check in at Terminal 3, drop my bags, then before going through security go with her to Terminal 1, where she can check in...? My real question is, can I go WITH her through security at her terminal (T-1) even though I've dropped my bags at Terminal 3? Thanks so much!

     

    Either scenario works. However I think that 1 would be the easiest.

     

    Thanks so much! So you're positive that I can wait with someone at her gate who's leaving on a different airline in any of the three terminals (T-1, T-2, T-3)? United Airlines told me that each airline has its own gates cordoned off and that someone travelling on one airline can't wait at the gate with someone traveling on another. :P Is this not true (I'm hoping it isn't)?

     

    That's not true. Nobody checks what airline you're flying on when you're just waiting at the gate

     

    Thanks again! So all terminals connect airside, and there are no checkpoints that would stop me from walkmg from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1 airside (past security) because my ticket is on American? Thinking of checking in at Terminal 3 and going to meet her at her gate at Terminal 1 and just want to be sure I can do this. Please let me know. Thanks again!

    I have to travel from atlanta and catch qatar flight ar 11pm.can somebody guide me asto how to checking my luggage at iad

     

    So you're buying two separate tickets? It's quite simple, you book a flight that is scheduled to get into IAD before 8:30 PM, then when you arrive, go to the baggage claim in the main terminal, then when you get your baggage, take it upstairs to the departure level and the Qatar Airlines counter.

     

  • Beirut to chocago through FCO connection

    hi. will be using alitalia to travel from beirut to chicago. both arrival and departure should be in terminal 3. I am not sure if will need to go through T5 or not. should be able to get both boarding pass from beirut and the lugguage should be sent to chicage strainght. thx

     

    Only US airlines use T5 in FCO. Alitalia flights to the US use terminal 3.

  • 37 minutes enough??
    May 16, 2013

    So my flight itinerary is SFO-IAH-OMA. The layover in IAH is only 37 minutes. I have conflicting terminal locations for the arrival into IAH (it is either C or E) and I believe I depart from terminal B. How long does it take to get from Terminal C to Terminal B? How long does it take to get from Terminal E to Terminal B? Will I be able to make both situation?

     

    United mainline flights into IAH can arrive into C or E, so you won't know until the day of your flight. C or E to B can take anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes on the TerminaLink train, depending on where in C/E your arriving gate is and how close it is to the TerminaLink station.

     

    I need to make my way from E4 to B85 in 37 minutes at IAH. is that enough time to make it?

     

    If your first flight is on-time it's possible, but hurry.

     

    thanks! the plane actually landed about 7 minutes early so i got out when we were supposed to land. still had to hurry to the terminal, but made the flight! =)

     

  • Time to transit from T5 on a Wednesday a

    ba297 is always late at least 30 - 40 minutes giving us only am hour and 20 or 20 minutes to make our flight connection in T3' is this doable On a Wednesdat around 6:30 pm?

     

    I see most days BA297 doesn't get in until 6:30 or later, so I think it's very unlikely you'll be able to make a 6:30 PM AA connection. If there's a later flight to your destination you'll be rebooked on that.

     

    We have the exact same scenario. We have an 8:05 connection after arriving on BA297. We are US citizens. So, can we make it to terminal 3 with a 6:30 arrival giving us a hour and 35 minutes to make an AA flight on a Wednesday?

     

  • How much time between airlines at T5
    May 16, 2013

    I will be arriving at 6:55am into T5 via Hawaiian airlines with a connecting flight on JetBlue that departs at 7:40am from T5. Will I have enough time to make the connecting flight? Would also help to know what terminal Hawaiian flies into.

     

    Both Hawaiian and JetBlue use T5 at JFK. You will have enough time if your first flight is on-time.
