  • Southwest to US Airways connection
    May 8, 2013

    I arrive PHX @ 9:55 am on SW - depart @11:35 on US Airways. Will I have time to pick up my luggage from SW, and check-in with luggage with US Airways in time?

     

    If your first flight is on-time it should be enough time, but any delays and you could be in trouble.

     

  • Help for dropping off at terminals Pleas

    Hello, we have flights for my daughter to fly on Aitalia to Milan at 9am with my husband and myself returning to the US at 9:40am on Delta the same day. We'd very much like to get her checked in and to her gate before we go do the same. How long does it take to transfer between the necessary terminals and will it be a real hassle if we have several suitcases? We appriecate any recommnedations. Thank you!

     

    You will not be able to go to her gate with her. I suggest you do your goodbyes when you drop her at Terminal 1 and then make your way to terminal 5. You will have to check in and go through special security procedures in T5 so you should not delay. After that you will be bussed to the Terminal 3 satellite for your departure.

    Hi! My parents are flying next week from Warsaw-Paris-Atlanta-Wichita. They have to go through immigration check in Atlanta and then get somehow to domestic terminal. Could someone give me a brief description of what should they look for in terms of directions? They do not speak english and I am afraid they are going to get lost. How do they get to the "Plane Train" ? Any information or maps would be very helpful!

     

    I should mention that they are flying Air France to Atlanta and arriving at Terminal I , they have about 2 hrs to get through immigration, their connecting flight is operated by Delta Air Lines and departs from Terminal S. I bought tickets about a month ago so I am not sure if the flight from Atlanta to Wichita will still be from the Terminal S?

     

    They will go through immigration in the International terminal. Then they just have to re-check their bags with Delta in that terminal, go through security there, and take the Plane Train to the concourse for their Wichita flight. They don't have to actually go to the main Domestic terminal - they can go straight to their concourse.

     

    Where is the Plane Train located? Do they have to take stairs upstairs downstairs? Are there hanging signs "Plane Train"?

     

    The plane train runs underground between all the concourses. It's fairly obvious. They will likely go downstairs at their arriving gate in order to go through immigration.

    How long is it currently taking to get through security in Terminal 2 (Delta) for a 6:00 a.m. flight?

     

    6am on weekdays can be quite busy; to be on the safe side, allocate an hour for security check.

     

  • American to United HOW do you connect?
    May 8, 2013

    How do you connect from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3 at Ohare? Do you have to go out of security?

     

    No, you do not. You can walk from Terminal 3 to Terminal 2 then Terminal 2 to Terminal 1 all beyond security. Just follow the signs. The walkway in Terminal 3 is near the G concourse and not many people use it because there aren't many T3-T2 connections. Lots of people walk from T2 to T1 because most of United Express is in T2 and mainline United is in T1.

    Im arriving on Southwest concourse B and departing on American Concourse D. How do I get there and do I need to go through security again?

     

    I'm pretty sure you can walk between concourse B and the Main Terminal to D automated Tram beyond security. If you can't, you'll need to exit security in the main terminal, go to the departures level, go through security and then follow the signs to concourse D tram.

    I'm looking at booking a United flight from Calgary to Buffalo connecting in Chicago--time between flights is 52 minutes--will that be enough time to go through customs and get from terminal 1 to terminal 2?

     

    You will go through US immigration in Calgary. Both of your flights may be in Terminal 1, both may be in Terminal 2. If you can tell me the flight numbers and/or operating carriers I can help you with where the gates will likely be. Regardless, Terminal 1 and 2 are connected beyond security.

     

    Thanks! Right now the itinerary says that the flight from calgary lands in one and leaves to buffalo from 2--I thought i would have to do the US customs in Chicago since I had to do it in Minnesota connecting from Paris on my last international trip.

     

    That's because you were coming FROM Paris. Major Canadian airports have pre-clearance for flights to the U.S. Again, if you share your flight numbers and/or operating carriers I can help you determine what terminal your flights will likely be in.

     

  • Enough time between flights?

    My husband & I are flying for the first internationally from Atlanta to Greece with a 1 hr layover at JFK. Our flight from Atlanta arrives in and departs from JFK to Athens in Terminal 3. We will be traveling Delta all the way. Will we have enough time between flights? Also, will we have to retrieve our baggage and recheck them thru?

     

    If your first flight is on-time you will have enough time. You will not have to do anything with your baggage in JFK on the way TO Greece.

    have 40 min is this enough time as I can't run

     

    Take the Airtrain to your next departure area. For terminal & gate details,I suggest you open www.ifly.com/atl then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

     

  • Wherer is Terminal B - gate D1?
    May 8, 2013

    Tracking my American connection flight shows it consistently leaving out of terminal B gate D1, but no terminal maps shows a D1 in terminal B. It shows the gates starting a D2. Could the terminal maps be out dated? Is D1 really in terminal B?

     

    LGA's Terminal B has Concourses A through D, with corresponding gates. Gate D1 of Concourse D must have re-opened gate D1 just recently.

     

    Thank you for your reply. I've tracked this particular flight recently and it consistantly leaves out of Terminal B, Concourse D, gate 1. It's just odd that terminal maps (including this website's) shows no gate D-1 in terminal B.

    I arrive Detroit (DTW) on Delta at 2:45 pm terminal EM and depart on Delta terminal EM terminal 1 for Narita (NRT) at 3:35 pm. Do I have enough time?

     

    If your first flight is on-time, yes. Connections in DTW on Delta are very simple.

    I have 1 hr and 8 minutes to make connecting flight and change terminals...is that enough time?

     

    forgot to tell you flying in from Portland via Jet Blue to JFK connect to dublin aer lingus to birmingham england

     

    You will not have to change terminals, both flights will be in Terminal 5. Thus, if your first flight is on-time you should have enough time.

     

  • 40 minute connection in Terminal 1

    Will I make a 40 minute connection at ORD? My flight from MSP arrives at 7:22 AM and my connection to SJO Costa Rica leaves at 8:15 AM. Not sure which specific gates are involved but if this is all within Terminal 1, will I make the connection? Also, will my luggage make it?

     

    Are both flights on United? If so then yes, both should be in Terminal 1 and should should barely have enough time.

     

    Both flights are United. I am seated in row 2 of my first flight so hopefully I could get out soon and run to my next gate. Will the luggage make it though?

     

    I can't guarantee it, but usually bags can make any reasonable connection that a person can.

    Arriving from Nuremberg 20th may at 15.35. Next flight leaves at 16.15 to Aberdeen via KLM. Is this enough time for me and my luggage? Hopefully luggage can go without me collecting.

     

    Yes, since Nuremberg and Amsterdam are all within Schengen you won't have any immigration on arrival in Amsterdam. It should be enough time. AMS is built for tight connections.

     

  • Terminal and Check In Questions.

    I arrive in Washington( IAD) at 9:10 pm. My connecting flight is to san fran(SFO) and leaves at 10:15pm. Both Flights are with United Airlines. Will that be enough time to do what I need to do? Also what terminal does United Airlines operate out of? Will I have to get to another terminal to get on my connecting flight? Also Do I have to chexk in and go through security again once I get to IAD or just go straight to my terminal and find my gate? Do gates usually change with less than an hours time? I am a first time flyer with connections and I am a little worried and I am trying to get all the info I can before I leave. Thank you so much!!

     

    Is your flight into IAD Domestic or International. If it's domestic you'll just have to walk between your gates on the C/D concourse if you are on United mainline and possibly the A concourse if you're on United Express (where you'll have to take the Aerotrain or shuttle bus to C/D) Either way you won't have to go through security again.

     

    My first flight is from Atlanta to Washington. Its like a united Express flight. So I will more than likely have to take the shuttle bus or aerotrain. Are those things hard to find? Where are they located were I can get on and off of them?

     

    They're not hard to find, just follow the signs to the C concourse. If your first flight is on-time you'll have enough time.
