  • 48 minute layover

    Flying Vancouver,Canada to Mexico and have 48 minutes to change planes in Phoenix. Both flights are US Airways. Enough time?

     

    Yes, it should be. You will pre-clear US Immigration in Vancouver so all you will have to do in Phoenix is go from gate to gate.

    I will travel on a Delta flight from RIC to GEG with a layover of 1h5min in MSP. I´d like to know if there will be enough time to get to my connecting flight? Thanks

     

    Yes, all your flights will be in the same terminal and the connection shouldn't take more than 15-20 minutes.

     

  • Is 3hrs 50 min sufficient International to Domestic

    Hi. We arrive at TBIT at 1100 and I wish to book a direct flight to IAD. The ideal would be an AA flight departing at 1450. It seems on the face of it sufficient time to connect, but at LAX? I can book a UA flight at 1704 if absolutely necessary. Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. The TBIT and AA's terminal are right next to each other so it's a very easy walk. I arrived in the TBIT at about 9 AM last month and I was out of customs by 9:45

Do i need to go through security again between domestic and international flights in same terminal.Is 90 mins sufficient.Also ,Do i have to transfer the baggage in Chicago ?I have booked all tickets together .thanks

     

    No, you will not have to go through any security and your bags will be checked through to Chennai in Minneapolis. 90 minutes is a ton of time.

    I am looking at a trip with a flight from Chicago to IAH, then with a 43-minute connection time from IAH to a flight to Villahermosa, Mexico. I will have a checked suitcase that will have to be transferred between planes. Will the 43 minutes be enough time? (This set of flights is being offered on the United Airlines website.)

     

    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that is enough time. However, as United only has one flight a day to Villahermosa you will be stuck in Houston overnight if there is a delay and you miss your connection. Since the Villahermosa flight doesn't leave until late afternoon, I would try for an earlier flight into Houston to give yourself more leeway. You will likely arrive in Terminal C and depart from Terminal B which are connected via the TerminaLink train inside security.

     

    Thanks for the info. I note that you preface your comment with "if your first flight is on-time." That caveat is found in many other responses to similar questions, and I quite understand it. But my big, and probably unanswerable, question is, What are the odds??

     

    Since so many passengers are connecting, United does give preference to their Chicago-Houston flights and the weather in Houston is generally good and it isn't congested. Most United Chicago-Houston flights are on-time about 80% of the time.

     

  • DEN-LAX on Frontier, LAX to Bangkok on Delta

    Hi, we are US citizens, arrive at LAX at 9:54 from Denver on Frontier, then depart at 12:00 on Delta for Bangkok via Tokyo. We are wondering if this 2 hours is enough time, and how we make this connection- I assume we come in on T3, and then claim bags, go to Terminal B and recheck? Any tips or advice very welcome. Thank you.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time but you will really have to hurry since you have an international departure and have to transfer bags yourself. You will arrive in Terminal 3 and depart from Terminal 5, NOT the International Terminal.

     

    Thank you, zap. I saw all the delta at 5, but wasn't sure if that included international or not. We can certainly hustle.

    Are there two separate custom area at this airport?

     

    What airport?

     

    Ah, now I see that you are referring to FCO. No, all immigration and customs are done in Terminal 3.

    Does using the same airline helps (United Airlines) from Dallas and leaving to Puerto Rico.

     

    You will have enough time if you hurry and your flight from Dallas is on-time. You will take the TerminaLink train, which runs inside security, between terminals.

    I have 35 minutes to get off an american eagle flight and get to my connection to OK/city on American. they are both in terminal 3 ..is this enough time?

     

    Yes, if your first flight is on-time you'll be OK, however you'll have to hurry. All gates in T3 at ORD are connected beyond security.

     

  • Connecting from Santa Ana to Montreal

    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.

  • 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.

    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

    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.
