  • BWI - IAH - YEG (Connect time 1hr 15 mins, enough?)
    Sep 12, 2014
    I'm flying from Baltimore (BWI) to Edmonton (YEG) with connecting flight time of 1hr 15 mins at IAH. Is this time enough? Please let me know. Many thanks.


    Forgot to mention that it's United Flight throughout.


    Yes, that should be enough time. If you have to change terminals the TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.


  • coneection time and luggage in IAD
    Sep 12, 2014
    The flight from LPB to IAD -PEK , there is 1 hour 40 mins connection time in IAD , is it need to go to customer to check the luggage ?


    LBP is Long Banga, Malaysia. I doubt you are flying all the way to Washington DC to fly back to Asia to Beijing. Where are you coming from? If it's domestic and you purchased one ticket you will not have to claim your bags in IAD.


    Sorry - I see that LPB is La Paz, Bolivia. Is that your origin? If so there are no nonstop flights between La Paz and IAD. Where are you entering the US?


    is lpb via BOG to IAD by AVIANCA the to PEK by airchina , want to know if need to get luggage out and 1:40 connection time is enough or not


    Yes, you will arrive in the International Arrivals Building, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk (if they are tagged through to PEK), then go through security and take the aerotrain to your departure gate in concourse A. If your BOG-IAD and IAD-PEK are on separate tickets you will have to take your bags to the Air China check-in counter and will have a tough time making your connection.


  • TTN to New Jersey transit?

    Do NJ Transit Trains stop at the Trenton Train Station?


    Yes, 2 NJ Transit trains stop at the Trenton Transit Center, the Northeast Corridor and the River Line.


  • 1 hour 20 minute connection
    Sep 12, 2014
    I am arriving into Chicago at 10.40 in terminal 5 from the UK and have a connection at terminal 1, 1 hour 20 minutes later will this be plenty of time, i amd flying with United Airlines


    No, that is below the minimum connection time for such a connection (90 minutes is the minimum time). It's possible but it will be risky and have no spare time for any delays.


    do i have to collect my luggage as i am still flying with the same airline


    Yes, you have to claim your luggage to go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the re-check counter immediately afterwards.


    thank you for your help


  • New delhi - Haiti via JFK

    If you are an Indian citizen, yes, you will need a transit visa.


  • Amsterdam to Indianapolis via Detroit
    Sep 12, 2014
    I m arriving at Detroit from Amsterdam vis Delta Airlines DL0235 at 1600 hrs and my next connection flight is at 1725 hrs to Indianapolis again on Delta Airlines DL 1335. Is the connection time of 1 hour and 25 min enough.


    It is below the minimum connection time, but it's only 5 minutes below and the Delta terminal at DTW is a very simple airport so you should be OK.


  • UA965-UA4684 transfer time in IAH.
    Sep 12, 2014
    Hello, I am planning a trip to Corpus Christi from Frankfurt. I have 2h27min between flights in IAH (UA965-UA4684). Would it be enough to pass all procedures. Ona way back I have 2h05minutes between the flights (LH8694-LH441). Thanks.


    Yes, on the way there that should be enough time. You will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Immigration, then re-check your bags with United, then go through security and take the TerminaLink train to Terminal B where your corpus christi flight will depart. On your way back all you have to do is after arrival in Terminal B, take the TerminaLink train to Terminal D where your Lufthansa flight to Frankfurt will depart. No security or immigration procedures required.


  • Terminal 3 to Terminal 1 at midnight in 1 hour
    Sep 12, 2014
    I will arrive at terminal 3 by HA18 at 11:45PM and leave at terminal 1 by US674 at terminal 1 at 12:59AM My questions are: 1) Will inter-terminal train operate at those time? 2) If I take the train, do I need to pass security? Many thanks,


    Yes, the trains are running at that time. Note that you just have to take the train from Terminal 3 to the D concourse. You do not actually have to go to Terminal 1 as long as you check-in online for your US Airways flight and print your boarding pass in Hawaii. You will not have to go through security.


  • Immigrations Lines Long?
    Sep 12, 2014
    I'm coming from Doha, Qatar, connect in PHL(immigration) to DEN. I have 1hr45min layover between flights and have to go through immigrations. How bad are the lines here? And will this be enough time? Thanks in advance. Safe travels.


    Yes, that should be enough time. Length of lines depends greatly on what time your flight arrives and what season you are flying.


    How are the lines Oct 3 around 7am? I know some airports are horrible when claiming baggage/rechecking baggage and then going through immigrations. IAH is one of them. DFW is awesome and super quick with new Kiosk(not Global Entry)


    PHL should be really easy at that time as your flight will be the only international flight coming in that early.


  • Tram from T3 to T1 for a Southwest flight?
    Sep 11, 2014
    Hi, I live within walking distance to T3. I have a Southwest flight in T1. Can I check in at T3 and take the tram to the D gates and then C gates? Or do I have to take the shuttle bus out front?


    For clarification, I already printed my boarding pass so really I guess I'm asking if they will let me through security in T3 for a flight that leaves out of T1?


    Technically yes, they should let you though security in T3.


    Alright, thanks!!


  • Sydney to LAX to Atlanta
    Sep 12, 2014
    My daughter is arriving on a Delta flight,terminal five gate 57. She has 90 minutes to catch her flight to Atlanta. Looking at historical data on Flight Aware, it looks like she could be on the same physical aircraft, boarding at the same gate. To go thru immigration and customs, will she essentially have to leave Terminal 5 and re-enter thru TSA? Or is there a shortcut they can use to stay near the gate? Thanks for any reply.


    Passengers have to go through US Immigration and Customs at the first point they enter the US - so yes, she will have to exit the aircraft, go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, re-check her bags with Delta, then go to the departure level and through security.


    Also, Delta flight 16 does have a change of Aircraft - it is a 777-200LR from Sydney to LAX and a 767-300 from LAX to Atlanta.


    Sorry disregard that last post, the 777-200LR does continue to Atlanta as Delta flight 80. However, my first post is still true.


    Thanks for the info! I'll let her know.


  • Connecting domestic Delta flights
    Sep 11, 2014
    On Oct 1 I could be arriving on Delta DL1350 from Seattle, departing on DL2148 to LaGuardia. The layover is only 33 mins. Assuming my first flight is on time, should I have enough time to connect?


    Yes, both flights will be on the A concourse of the McNamara Terminal. Obviously you have very little buffer for delays.


  • 2 hours enough from TBIT to Terminal 4 for AA?
    Sep 11, 2014
    Flying from Abu Dhabi by Etihad EY 0171 and have a connecting domestic flight from terminal 4. having 2 hours between the connecting flights, is that sufficient to clear customs and walk to terminal 4?


    Yes, that should be enough time if you purchased your tickets together.


  • LHR - MSP (1.5 hrs) - BOI
    Feb 2, 2015
    Looking to fly Delta from London (LHR) to Boise, ID via MSP on Tues, 06 Nov; will 1.5 hrs lay-over be sufficient to clear Imm (UK Passport), Bagg, Customs, Drop-off and Security to reach Gate before close?


    Did you manage the transfer? I need to do a similar connection from LHR to Nashville in 2 hrs but with a 2 year old.

    Yes, there is a re-check desk in T5 to drop your bags at and yes, 2 hr 15 mins should be enough time.
