  • Connecting from Santa Ana to Montreal
    Nov 12, 2013
    1
    I have a 52min layover arriving on Delta from California and connecting to an international flight to Montreal also on Delta. What terminal do I arrive in and do I have enough time? Do I stay secure or have to go through security again? Thanks so much.

     

    You will arrive in one of the several concourses (likely T, A, or E) and also depart from one of those concourses. All gates at ATL are connected beyond security. The Plane Train connects all concourses underground. You will not have to go through any security or immigration procedures in Atlanta.

    I am flying from TLV to FRA and then to YVR. I have a 1 hour and 20 minute layover. Is this enough time to make my connecting flight to YVR? (all flights are lufthansa)

     

  • Terminal change with global entry visit
    Nov 12, 2013

    We have 1 1/2 hours between flights. Will there be enough time to get from C, have our Global Entry interviews (appt is scheduled for 30 minutes after we arrive in C) and then get to our gate in E?

     

    Forgot to include - I estimate the interview will take 20 minutes and we will have to go back through security to catch our flight in terminal E.

     

    That should be enough time.

    I am looking to book a flight from Kansas City to PhL with a 45 minute layoff over and will arrive at us airway terminal A and need to go to Terminal C to us airway is this possible

     

    You will arrive at Terminal AEast; then use the moving walkway inside security to Terminal C - you have enough time.

  • Flying from Edmonton, Canada, connecting through Denver, to San Jose
    Nov 12, 2013

    I'm a NZ passport holder. I'll fly from Edmonton, Canada to San Jose by United with a connection through Denver. I only have 45 min connection time. Will I need to go through US customs at Denver? Or do I need to recheck my bag again?

     

    You will pre-clear US immigration in Edmonton. Your arrival in Denver will be like a domestic flight so there you will just have to go from gate to gate, which will both be on the same concourse.

     

  • Arr from Mexico City - 1 hour enough to clear customs make connection?

    We have a family of 5, including 4 US citizens (3 adults, one toddler) and one permanent resident (green card). Will one hour be enough time to get through customs and immigration, and board our connecting domestic flight? What is the process?

     

    Note - flight will arrive from mexico in terminal 6, connecting flight also leaves from terminal 6.

     

  • Seniors connecting from TB to TA

    My Parents are travelling from Lisbon, Portugal to Ottawa, Canada. They are both in their seventies and need to connect from Terminal B to Terminal A with approx. an hour and a half. This will be their first time with connections in Newark. I would appreciate comments from experienced travellers familiar with Newark Liberty Airport. Thank you.

     

    They'll have to go through US Immigration, then claim their baggage, then go through customs, then re-check their bags, then take the AirTrain to their departure terminal (note that her Ottawa flight may actually depart from A or C) and then go through security and to their gate. They'll have to hurry to make it in just 90 minutes.

     

  • 50 min.connection time at ORD enough?
    Nov 11, 2013

    I( Canadian citizen) wonder whether 50 min connection time is enough at ORD. I arrive from TORONTO in AA and depart in AA to Dusseldorf, Germany. What about security clearance at Chicago?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration in Toronto. So all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will both be in Terminal 3 and connected beyond security.

     

  • 70 minutes connection time at YVR enough?

    I fly in from Sydney on Air Canada flight, arrive to YVR at 7:30AM. Do I have enough time to make my connection to LAX flight, depart at 8:40AM at YVR? The YVR-LAX flight is on Air Canada as well. I am a 82yr lady wth wheelchair assistance.

     

    You should be OK with the wheelchair assistance. YVR is pretty compact.

     

    Thanks ZAP, I figure flying in at gate D51, fly out at gate E81, the walking time should be around 12 minutes. My only concern is the waiting time at US Border Inspection line. Would the line be long around 7:30am? I do have the option to take the 5pm flight, but waiting counld be dreafull.

     

  • From Boston to Barbados via MIAMI- 1 hr between flights. enough time?

    Hello I land in Miami, from Boston, at 9:00am and depart to Barbados at 10:05am. Do I have enough time to make the connection?

     

    Yes, all you will have to do in Miami is go from your first gate to your second. Assuming both flights are on American, they are all connected beyond security.

     

  • Chicago ORD to IAH to Merida, Mexico

    I'm flying from Chicago to Merida, Mexico via IAH. Guessing that flight UA 1421 will arrive into Terminal C or E, and flight UA 1426 will depart from Terminal E. The layover is 2 hr 35 mins. Will I have to go thru security again? Will have 1 carry-on piece of luggage.

     

    Yes, you have the terminals correct. You will not have to go through any security in IAH and you will have plenty of time. Terminals C and E are connected directly.

     

  • Delta from Clt to Atl to Paris

    We are flying to Paris (from Charlotte) on Delta/Air France on Thursday. We arrive ATL at 7:47 and depart at 9:00. On our return flight, we have only an hour layover in Atlanta. Is this enough time on both ends?

     

    On your way there that should be enough time. All you will have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E/F for your departure. On the return I don't think that's enough time as you will have to go through US Immmigration, claim your bags, re-check them, and go through security before taking the plane-train to your departure concourse. Delta has numerous flights from Atlanta to Charlotte that you can be re-booked onto with a much more comfortable connection

     

  • Connection Info needed

    I booked a ticket from Boston to Sydney with Qantas. I fly from Boston Logan (codeshare, operated by American Airlines) and arrive at Dallas/Fort Worth Intl at 8:40pm and then fly from Dallas/Fort Worth Intl to Sydney departing terminal D at 10.00pm. Can you please guide me through the connection process at DFW (eg what terminal I will likely arrive in from Boston Logan, will i need to go through immigration/security, will I need to re-check my luggage at DWF or will AA make sure my luggage goes through to Sydney once I check in at Boston etc)?

     

    You will arrive in Terminal A, C, or D (likely A or C). All you have to do upon arrival in DFW all you have to do is go from your arrival terminal (if it is not D) to Terminal D via the SkyLink train, which runs inside security. You won't have to go through any immigration or security or do anything with your baggage. Your baggage will be checked through to Sydney in Boston.

     

    Thanks for response ZAP.

     

  • Raleigh to Amsterdam via JFK

    Hi, I will be travelling to Amsterdam via JFK soon. My flight operated by Delta should arrive in at 14.56 on a saturday and my connecting flight also operated by delta leaves at 16.40. I am first time solo flyer so am a bit scared of connections! Im wondering if that is enough time to be able to do it successfully, and what steps I need to go through to have a smooth transition? I am from the UK if that helps (or hinders) Thanks!

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 2 and depart from Terminal 4. Delta runs a shuttle bus that runs inside security between these two terminals. All you will have to do is take the shuttle bus between the two terminals and go to your gate. You should have enough time.

     

    Thanks for your help (on both my questions) - From your response I won't have to get my baggage (or go through customs, presumably because the flight is from the US to the US)?

     

    Yes, you won't have to do anything with your baggage in JFK and that is the reason why.

     

    Thanks for your help
