  • Enough time to connect.
    May 11, 2014
    I'm arriving into T8 at 1.10pm from LHR and then departing from T8 to orlando at 2.35pm. Will this 1 hour and 25 mins be enough to go through immigration, customs etc. I 'll be checked in right through to orlando but believe i've got to collect bags to go through customs at jfk and then re check them. Just nervous i will run short of time to do all this! Any advice appreciated.


    As you stay at Terminal 8, your transfer time should suffice. T8 has Concourse B with gate 1-16, while near its gate 14 is access to Concourse C with gates 31-47.


    Thanks - does T8 have its own customs hall or does it share with other terminals?


    Yes, T8 has its own immigration hall.


  • Time to go from T4 to check-in counter at T8
    May 10, 2014
    Hello, I will have about 40-45 minutes to go from T2 to Air Berlin check-in counter in T8 as they do not have web check-in and will close check-in 90 minutes prior to departing time. Woul I be able to make it?


    On arrival at JFK's T2, take the frequently-running 'Airlines Terminal Train' (follow signs) from T2 to T8 - only one stop - running counter-clockwise. At T8 you need to proceed to the AB check-in counter at Departures level and on to security check & your gates. T8 has Concourse B with gate 1-16 and near its gate 14 is access to Concourse C with gates 31-47.


  • Airport questions
    May 11, 2014
    Arriving from Costa Rica and layover in Atlanta for 1 hr and 20 min. Then catching next flight to Syracuse. Do we have enough time? And how and where do we go from there?


    You arrive at the International Terminal of ATL and depart from one of the domestic terminals - depending on which airline you take. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/atl then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text - paying attention to 'International Arrivals' transfer options and terminal details.


    Upon arrival in the International Terminal, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, then re-check your bags with Delta. You will then follow the sign towards connecting flights, go through security and then take the plane train to the concourse of your flight to Syracuse.


  • 1 Hour internation-domestic connection with no checked in luggage
    May 11, 2014
    I have exactly 1 hour between my arrival with Iberia from MAD and my departure with Delta #480 to ATL on Sunday afternoon. I will have only a carry on and no checked luggage. Assuming my first flight will not be late will it be possible to make it to the domestic Delta flight? What do I need to do exactly in order to be as fast as I can? As I purchased the two tickets separately is there a chance that Iberia or Delta staff will assist me in being on time in an immigration/security fast track or something of the sort? If my first flight is late and I miss the second flight will Iberia and/or Delta put me on the next flight to ATL with no additional charge? Thanks


    As you do not have to go through customs clearance at JFK, all you need to do after passport check at Terminal 7, take the frequently-running 'Airlines Terminal Train' from T7 to T2 - running counter-clockwise). However, at T2 you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate. You have enough time.


    Thanks! I was not totally lucky. The Iberia flight was late by 45 minutes and I missed the next flight. Although it was a separate reservation Iberia rebooked the Delta flight for me and 2 hours later I was on my way.


  • Connect fly from terminal B to terminl 7 within 2 hrs 24 min
    May 15, 2014
    I fly from Brisbane, arriving in LAX at 6:45am at Terminal B , my next connection fly is united at 9:04am at terminal 7, is this sufficient time to transfer, and what is the fast way to swing between Terminal B to Terminal 7.


    On arrival at LAX at its Bradley (TBIT / TB) terminal, you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bags. Thereafter, exit the terminal and take the LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island in front of each terminal, under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', which runs every 12-15 mins. Starting from TBIT, the next stops are at Terminals 4, 5, 6, 7 - a 10-minute ride. At T7, you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate. You have enough time.


    You can also walk from the TBIT to T7 (walk to the right as you exit the Terminal). If your bags aren't tagged through to United in Brisbane you will have to take them with you to T7 to check them with United.


    thank you for advise


    ZAP, thanks for the info. If I ask Qantas to tag my bags to Baltimore, should I still have to take them to T7?


    No, in that case you can drop them at the re-check desk in the International Terminal


  • walking from T1 concourse B to C
    May 11, 2014
    How long will it take to walk from Terminal 1, Concourse B to C? I am flying United to ORD, then connecting to LHR with a 1 1/2 hour layover


    At ORD, Concourse C is a separate building, connected at its center by a walkway to the center of Concouse B). You have enough time for transfer.


    Walking from B to C takes less than 10 minutes.


  • International Transfer 1.5hrs enough?
    May 9, 2014
    I'm flying through IAH on the 8th of July. From London Heathrow to IAH with United Airlines and back out with United Airlines to Bogota, Colombia. On a UK passport. Will 1.5hrs be enough time for the transfer? Thanks!


    You will arrive at & depart from IAH, at Terminal E. On arrival, go through secure corridors, walk across the sky bridges to adjoining Federal Inspection Services (FIS), claim bags & clear U.S. Customs; then re-check in your baggage at the recheck counters and proceed back to your connecting gate. Your transfer time should suffice.


  • Terminal 6 to terminal 2 with 1hr 20 min connection time
    May 11, 2014
    Hi I am arriving lax from Sydney at 10:35 on United and have to get to terminal 2 for and Aircanada flight at 11:55. All tickets booked through united and they tell me I will make connection the question is will I and what is the quickest way from T6 to T2


    Your transfer time is very tight! On arrival at LAX, you need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance & then re-check-in bags where indicated. (they will then be automatically transferred to T2.) As T6 is opposite of the parking facilities, you only have two options: take a taxi or the bus - both of which require you going through security check at T2 before proceeding to your connecting gate. The LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island in front terminals, under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', runs every 12-15 mins - After T6, it will stop at T7, T8, proceed around the bend to T1 & T2 - a 10-minute ride. P.S. as T6 is for United's preferred clients - find out if United provides its own shuttle gate-to-gate to T2.


    You can ignore frmay's advice on terminal transfers. Yes, you can take the shuttle, but it's fastest to walk, especially at that time of day. There is no gate to gate shuttle. You cannot take a taxi between terminals either. Also T6 is not for "preferred clients" - the check in area is, but their gates in T6 are regular United gates.


  • Hawaiian
    May 11, 2014
    I am arriving on Hawaiian at 7:00am with a 2hr. layover and departing on Southwest 9:00 with luggage. Is that sufficient time and how do I go from terminals?


    You arrive at Terminal 1's Satellite Concourse D (D gates) and depart from Concourse C (C gates); On arrival you need to take the D gate tram to main Terminal 1 and take the separate C-gate tram to your connecting C gates. You have enough time.


    Check in for your Southwest flight online before you leave Hawaii.


    MAHALO, So my luggage claim would be at terminal 1?


    No, if you have checked luggage you will have to transfer it yourself. The baggage claim is in T3. You will then have to take a shuttle bus to T1, then check your bags with Southwest, then go back through security and to your gate in C. You will barely have enough time to do this if your first flight is on-time. You may want to try to get a later flight on Southwest.


    Mahalo for the info.


  • 1 hr connection time flying from Arizona then to Dublin
    May 11, 2014
    Will 1 hour be enough time to make a connection-I am flying from Arizona with 1 hr. in Chicago then on to Dublin same airlines the entire way


    What airlines are you flying?




    Yes, that should be enough time. Both flights will be in Terminal 3 and all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • customs Newark to SFo
    May 9, 2014
    Hi I have 2h 10m lay over from Newark to SFO coming from Madrid. Is this enough time to go through customs if the plane is usually delayed by 30 min?


    Yes, that should still be enough time. Also, United has many flights from Newark to San Francisco that they could rebook you on if for some reason you do miss your connection.


  • Would 69 mins be possible for transfer?
    May 9, 2014
    I'm going with UA on my IND-IAD-GRU flight and the transfer time is 69 mins. Is that enough?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. If you arrive in Concourse A it is connected to the C/D concourse via the aerotrain and mobile lounge inside security.


  • Amsterdam to seattle
    May 9, 2014
    Hey I am flying from Amsterdam to seattle, and want to fly futher to pasco, wa with Alaska Airlines. How much time do i need to transfer?


    If you are purchasing tickets separately I would try to leave 2.5 hours, but if you are purchasing them together than 90 minutes is probably enough time.


  • Frankfurt-Milan
    May 8, 2014
    I have 60 min to connect from Terminal 1 gate C16A (coming from Boston) to Milan leaving from Terminal 1 gate A24. Is this enough time and what is the fastest way to get there? Thanks.


    c16a is terminal 2, you will need to use the skytrain


    They are both Lufthansa flights so I assumed gate C16 is Terminal 1?


  • IAD > MIA > NASSAU - 35 minute connection in Miami to Nassau...??
    May 8, 2014
    I will be boarding an American Airlines flight from Washington Dulles airport, arriving into Miami at 4:50. My connection to Nassau leaves at 5:35 on American Eagle. Is this enough time? I know they start boarding 30 minutes before take off, so by the time we deplane they will have already started boarding. I'm afraid that if we have to change terminals we won't make it, let alone a slight delay in our flight.


    At MIA, Both airlines serve at the North Terminal which has a one-mile-long Concourse D, served by the Skytrain at 4 stations: near gate D17, D20-25, D26-39 & E1-35 and D40-60 - taking minutes. Just follow signs.
