  • flying into mps from Amsterdam

    Deciding to book a flight from Venice to Denver I have a layover of 1h56m coming into Minneapolis from Amsterdam. I'm flying with a 2 year old and 4 luggages. Would the layover time be enough for me to pass custom, recheck my luggages and catch my plane? Please help planning on booking for the 28th of January.

    Yes, that should be enough time. MSP does not see a lot of international flights so immigration is generally pretty fast there.

     

  • International transit through DFW

    Hi, My son will be travelling from Sydney to Calgary, Canada via transit in DFW. His Qantas flight arrives Terminal D and his AA flight on to Calgary departs from (I think) Terminal D a few hours later. Will he go through immigration in DFW before boarding the Calgary flight, or will he just go through an international transit lounge? (He has US citizenship) Thanks!

     

    There are no international transit lounges in the US. He will go through US immigration, claim his bags, go through US customs and re-check them before going through security and to his gate for his Calgary flight. His Calgary flight may not depart from D, so if it does he will take the SkyLink train between terminals (which runs inside security).

    We are traveling on Saturday jan 25 only have 50 minutes between flights we change from southwest to AirTran will that be enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All Southwest and AirTran flights are on the same concourse.

     

  • Can I make my connection?

    Flying from Toronto to Denver on Air Canada, arriving at 10:36 (concourse B?) Connecting to Salt Lake City on Delta, depart 11:30 (concourse C?). I will clear customs at Pearson airport in Toronto. Is 56 minutes enough time? Will my bag go straight to SLC?

     

    Were both of your tickets bought on the same reservation? If so your bags will be checked through to SLC, otherwise you will not have enough time and shouldn't check a bag.

     

    No I'm looking at separate reservations. Can I carry on a duffel bag (with ski boots and clothes...~40lb? Otherwise, what is the minimum amount of time I should allow for the connection?

     

    No, you can't carry on a bag that big. You really will need 2 hours to be safe claiming bags and re-checking.

     

  • United assure me they do not book unless enough time between flights.

    United assure me that 1.5 hours between an incoming flight from Costa Rica and a domestic flight back to Cleveland is sufficient. Looking at other feedback this seems almost impossible. Has anyone done it?

     

    It's not impossible, but it's tough. If you do miss your connection United has a lot of flights between IAH and Cleveland that you can be rebooked on.

    HELP please Arriving on US Airways from UK at 6-20pm. Connecting flight to Tampa leaves 8pm. Will we have enough time ( 1 hour 40minutes) to clear customs and immigration and make our connection?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. US Airways also has a 10:20 PM flight to TPA on some nights should you miss your connection.

     

    Thanks..thats put my mind at rest.

    I have client flying into Houston from Toronto landing in terminal B, then flyingt to Quito from terminal E. The connection time in 57 minutes. 1. Will she have enough time? I know she will clear US customs in Toronto. 2. How do you get from Terminal B-E? Is there a train - can she be met as she is unable to walk quickly. Thanks

     

    Terminals B and E are connected inside security by the TerminaLink train. Yes, she will pre-clear US Immigration in Toronto. If she needs wheelchair assistance she can request it from United by calling them.

     

  • 1 hour connection and pick up infant

    Hello, I am dropping my baby off at his grandparents and trying to pick him back up during a 1 hour layover on UAL from PHX to IAD to BOS. Obviously, I'm quite concerned about being able to exit the terminal get to the main terminal, pick up my son and get back through security in time to make the flight in less than an hour. Do they still issue gate passes so his grandparents can meet me at the gate with him? Any other suggestions? Thanks!

     

    They usually only issue gate passes to people dropping off or picking up children or handicapped persons. You should have allowed yourself more time.

     

  • BHX -EWR.-LAX

    I am arriving in ewr on 02/02/14 from BHX on flight UA 26 and connecting with flight UA 1600 to LAX do I need to reclaim baggage then re check in

     

    Yes, you will claim your bags after you go through immigration, then go through customs, then re-check them at the re-check desk. You will then go up to the departure level and go back through security and to your departure gate.

     

    Thank you

     

    International arrivals at EWR need to go through passport check, pick up their bags, go through customs clearance & if continuing journey re-check-in their bag where indicated. Note that United uses Terminal C for all international flights, as well as some domestic flights, and uses some other domestic flights at Terminal A. If your connecting flight is at Terminal A, you get a shuttle running outside the C gates to the A gates (no need for security check). For details I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ewr then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

     

    Both of your flights will be in Terminal C.

    I am looking to travel on United Airlines from Tampa to Houston then take another United flight to Narita Japan. The connection time from landing in Houston to departing to Narita is one hour and 17 minutes. Is that enough time. Will I arrive and depart from Terminal E?

     

    You will likely arrive in C and depart from E (although there's a chance you could arrive in E). You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time as C and E are connected directly.

    I arrive on a 4:58 to Terminal A and depart at 5:40 in Terminal E. Do I have enough time to make this flight? Both flights are with the same airline.

     

    If your first flight is on-time you'll have enough time, barely. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.

     

  • first time flying

    Hi! I am flying for the first time in one month and have a few questions about what will happen during my layover that may seem silly. I am flying from Toronto Pearson (YYZ) to LAX with American Airlines then from LAX to Brisbane (BNE) with Quantas. I arrive at Terminal 4 at 9:15 on a Sunday and depart from Terminal 4 at 11:50 the same evening. My first question: What do I do when I get off the plane at LAX? Do I go through immigration, collect my checked bags, clear customs, re enter the terminal, check in and go through security all over again? If this is so then I am worried I did not leave enough time between the flights? Thank you in advance for any advice, I am getting a quite nervous.

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration in Toronto. At LAX all you will have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which as you mention, will both be in the same terminal. You should have plenty of time.

     

  • 1h 10m Connection time with smaller kids
    Jan 12, 2014

    Hi, we are planning a trip with 2 kids (2 and 6 years) from Zuerich to San Francisco. There is a flight with KLM Cityhopper arriving in Schiphol at 8:40 with the KLM Connection flight leaving at 9:50 (e.g. 1h10m time). Is this too big a risk to take? Usually international flights board 40min ahead, will that be a problem? Thank you for your help!

     

    Since the earlier flight is an easy option I would probably do that, although the later flight would probably be OK.
