  • transfer
    Aug 4, 2013
    flying from Nuremberg Germany through klm then transferring to a Malaysia airline in Amsterdam-Schiphol Airport (AMS) with only 1 10 mins to spare. anyone know what process I have to go through and if 1 10 mins is enough. how far is klm (city hopper) gate from the Malaysia airline gate? trying to plan ahead cuz I am travelling with my 7 year old child.


    As KLM & Malaysia (MH) airlines belong to different Alliances, make sure that KLM will transfer bags to MH connection. (If not you would have to claim your bags and re-check them in with MH). On arrival, look at overhead screens and find your MH flight number and gate, then simply follow signs to your connecting gate, where you will need to go through security check first. The bow-shaped termnal has B through M gates - walking all the way from B to M would only take 15 mins.


    my bags are automatically transferred cuz it says malaysia airlines Operated by KLM Royal Dutch Airlines wow, 15 minutes that is a long walk. thanks for replying.


  • DFW to London
    Aug 4, 2013
    I will be flying United from DFW connecting in IAD to London. I only have 30 minutes between flights. Can this be done?


    At IAD, United is the only airline using all of their Midfield Concourses A through D (with corresponding gates, i.e. gate B35) located in 2 separate parallel-running buildings A/B & C/D. A-C connect via AeroTrain, while D gates can only be reached by shuttle bus from A gates, or via walkway from C gates to D gates. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iad then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • US AIr A East to A West Terminal

    How long does it take to walk between A East to A West?


    10 mins or less


  • Restaurants before security?

    Does anyone know if there is any place to eat before you Ho through security in terminal A?


    At SAT, post-security of Terminal 1, is Blimpie near gate A8, MdDonald near gate A1 - not sure if food court is inside security or outside.


  • Transportation between TA and TB

    Does SAT airport has a transportation way between terminals like the sky link or something else?


    While unsecured areas of both terminals are connected (but with separate ticket counters & security checkpoints) A & B gateways are not connected. On arrival, proceed to the ticket counter area & go through security checkpoint for Terminal B & proceed to your B gates (just follow signs).

    Arriving vom Germany at ORD 2.55 pm. Connecting Flight to LAS is at 5 pm. Will this be enough time? And what is to do after landing?


    Yes, that should be enough time. What airlines are you taking?


    it is a lufthansa / United flight.


    What is our way at the airport: bags, customs, passport controll.... Do we have to carry our bags to domestic terminal?


    You will go through immigration, claim your bags, and re-check your bags after customs in Terminal 5. Then take the ATS train from Terminal 5 to Terminal 1, where you will go through security and your flight to Las Vegas will depart.


  • From terminal 8 (Qatar) to terminal 5 (jetblue)
    Aug 1, 2013
    Hi.. i will arrive at 3 pm at terminal 8 using Qatar airways. Connecting Flight to Orlando using Jetblue at 8 pm. Is Jetblue at terminal 5 ? Is it enough time ? and howcome I go from terminal 8 to terminal 5. thanks !


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will take your bags on the AirTrain/Air Terminals train from Terminal 8 to Terminal 5 to re-check them with JetBlue.

    Hello , me and my mom both half disabled and I have a pet in the cargo hold both on a wheelchair assistance , 90 minute to transfer , from YYZ to BEY , both flights Lufthansa/alliance


    1. First you need to contact Lufthansa (and the other Alliance airline, if applicable)to state your need for wheelchair assistance. 2. On arrival at FRA, you will need to go through passport check procedure. 3. Your pet may need to go to the 'pet relief area' before boarding the next plane. 4. Lufthansa uses both Concourses A & B, which are connected by a transfer tunnel outside of security, and by SkyLine train inside security (leaving every 2-3 mins.) 90 mins should suffice.


    Thank you , already called Lufthansa and they told me both pet and luggage will go straight to BEY and i only transit , I am just worried that 90 minutes won't be enough for a disabled person , they did confirm my wheelchair request,hope it will be enough

    I have a flight from ord to DTW vias delta - my flight arrive in detroit at 7pm and my flight from detroit to Sao paulo Brazil leaves at 7:45 . IT says that arrival and departure are in EM terminal so I am thinking that I should just be able to walk to the next gate -Any advice ? will 30 min be enough ?


    Yes, you can just walk from gate to gate. You should have enough time if you hurry but you'll have to hope your flight from Chicago is on-time.


    obrigado -( thank you)


  • Getting from B gates to D gates?

    Yes, the only way to get between them is walking. It should take between 10 and 20 minutes.


  • Canada to Us to Mex
    Jul 31, 2013
    Travelling from Ottawa Canada,to Pv Mex, via Chicago and returning Mex to Ottawa via Chicago. Departing Canada I believe I clear Us customs in Ottawa, so bags will be checked all the way to Mex ? Returning I land at Term 5, with 2hr layover, do I claim bags here, and go through customs, then on to Term 2 for last leg to Ottawa Canada....is this enough time to make connection?


    Yes, you have the procedure correct on the way to Mexico. Yes, on the way back you will have to claim your bags in immigration in T5, then re-check them after customs, then take the ATS train to T2. That should be enough time, but barely. Also, some United Express flights from ORD to YOW leave from T1, not T2, so be sure to check the monitors before you get on the ATS.


  • Enough time?
    Aug 15, 2013
    Hello, I have a LanChile flight from Santiago Chile to New York (JFK) terminal 8 at 07:40 and an American Airlines connexion to Montréal in the same terminal at 09:20, gate 32. Should have enought time?


    Yes, that should be enough time, but you'll have to hurry.


    Thank... It's a good option alternative a transfert from JFK to LGA and flight connexion at 11h00 AM ?


    The only easy way to get between JFK and LGA is a Taxi, which costs about $35 and takes about 45 minutes.

  • terminal 1 to 5

    Will reach from Cincinnati by united airlines. Need to go to terminal 5 to travel by Quatar Airways. Do I need to move with luggage ? How much time will be required for the transfer


    You could actually arrive in Terminal 1 or 2 from Cincinnati, but regardless of where you arrive you will take the ATS train to Terminal 5. If your bags aren't check through to Qatar Airways you will have to claim your baggage in T1 and take it with you. If you have to claim your baggage and re-check in T5, I would budget at least 2 hours, and even that would leave no room for delays.
