  • Terminal 5 to US Airways what terminal is 2 hr enough time??
    Aug 26, 2013
    I'll be doming to Terminal 5 and will do the 1 stop program - do I still need to check in with the kisok??? Also, what Terminal is US Airways - I have 2 hours to do this - - Thank You!!!


    What airline are you flying into Terminal 5? Where are you flying from ORD on US Airways? Were both of your tickets bought on one reservation?


    I'll flying in with Austrain Airlines from Vienna - from US Airways to Sacramento with a stop in Phoenix - - tickets were not bought on one reservation - - I hope 2 hours is enough time Thank You


    You'll have to hurry. Immigration could take close to an hour and you'll have to have your bags to Terminal 2 30 minutes prior to departure to check your bags with US Airways. To get from Terminal 5 to Terminal 2 you take the ATS train, which runs outside security. However, it wouldn't hurt to ask Austrian in Vienna if they can check your bags through to Sacramento, they might, and in that case you would be able to drop your bags off after customs in Terminal 5.


    I'm thinking of doing a carry-on and doing the one stop program - this way I would have way more time - - if I do that will I still need to do the kisok?? thank you


    Which Kiosk? If you don't have US Airways boarding passes you will still have to get them at a Kiosk in Terminal 2, however that won't take much time.


    The Kiosk in customs is what I meant - I do have a reservation with United at Terminal 1 - my back up plan if I don't make it in 2 hours will be with US Airways to Sacramento with carry-on only - I can't take the chance of making the flight with United so that is why I have this back up plan - so I'll get boarding pass's at Terminal 5 and get boarding pass at Terminal 2 if that is what I end up doing - - Thank You for your help!!

    Have a US Air Flt. arriving at 6:38am in Term. 4 and need to make connecting Hawaiian flt. that leaves at 8 am. in Term. 3. What's the best way to get from 4 to 3 in time? Thanks


    You have to take a shuttle bus. If you have bags to transfer yourself you'll really have to hurry. With carry ons only or if US Airways will transfer your bags, you'll be OK if your flight is on-time. Check-in online for your Hawaiian flight before you leave so that you don't miss the check-in cutoff.

    Hi, I am landing in JFK on a domestic flight and need to catch an International flight with 90 min to transfer. I have 2 bags to check in. I will have to pick up my bags from Jet blue and check in at Emirates. Is this sufficient? I will be arriving in Jet blue and connecting to Emirates.


    No, I don't think that will be enough time. The bag check-in cutoff for the Emirates flight is probably at least 60 minutes, which means you'd have to be perfectly on-time, then claim your bags, take them on the AirTrain from T5 to T4, then wait in line, all in less than 30 minutes. I think that will be really tough. It's possible, if the flight is on-time or early, but that's rare at JFK.

    I land at JFK on a Domestic Delta flight at 2:00 pm and then need to catch an international Air Lingus flight at 5:00 pm. I only have carry on bags. Do I have enough time to get thru customs, get to next terminal and pass thru security? Any suggestions appreciated!


    You will not go through customs as you are arriving on a domestic flight. You have plenty of time. You just have to take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train from your arrival terminal (either 2 or 4) to Terminal 5.


  • enough time
    Aug 23, 2013
    Will fly from Phoenix to Lima on United with connection at IAH. Will 60 minutes be enough time to make the connection?


    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that will be enough time. You will likely arrive in Terminal C or E and depart from Terminal E, which are all connected.


  • 60 minutes enough time to transfer from Gate C to Gate E?
    Aug 23, 2013
    Arriving from other US city and transfer in Houston for flight to Europe. Traveling with lab infant. Time between flights is 60 minutes. Do I need to go through security before boarding international flight? Can I ask flight attendant to store stroller inside of the plane (domestic flight) to reduce wait time after arrival?


    That should be enough time. No you won't have to go through security. It's unlikely you will be able to store the stroller onboard the plane. It will have to be gate checked.


  • LHR > DFW > TYR
    Aug 23, 2013
    So American have changed my flight and I should be arriving in DFW 1.40pm but my flight to Tyler is at 3.25pm, will I make it? and will I have to go through security again?


    That should be enough time but you'll have to hurry. You'll go through immigration, then claim your bags, go through customs, then re-check them, then go back through security in Terminal D, then you will likely take the SkyLink Train to Terminal B as that appears to be where all the flights to Tyler depart from. If you miss your connection AA does have later flights from DFW to TYR that you can be rebooked on.


  • Connection Question
    Aug 23, 2013
    Hey Helpful People I'm flying into IAD tomorrow from the UK with Virgin Atlantic. I then have 2 hours to a US Airways flight to MDT. Will this be enough time? WIll I need to collect my luggage and then go back out to departures and check it again? I've done this trip a few times before, but always as a 'route' and so I've just dumped my bag on the big conveyor belt and then go straight to the gate. Cheers for your help


    US Airways does not fly from IAD to MDT, so you will actually be on United Express. Yes, you will claim your bag, then if your bag is checked through to MDT on its tag, you can just drop it again immediately after you exit customs.


    Thanks ZAP, if it's not checked through to MDT will I have enough time to go up to departures and back in?


    Yes, you'll have to go upstairs to the United counter and check it there (and you'll have to pay a checked bag fee).


  • Changing planes
    Aug 22, 2013
    My mother is flying southwest, and she has to change planes in this Airport (HOU) only has 1 hour to make it to the next gate, (same carrier) is this an easy airport to find the gates, my concern is that she doesn't speak English and I don't want her to be in trouble. Is it possible that someone forn the airline can escolt her to the gate? Thanks


    Yes, it is a fairly easy airport. All the gates at HOU are on the same level of the same terminal. All she will have to do is look at the monitors when she gets off her first flight, locate the gate number for her second flight, and walk to it. http://www.ifly.com/william-p-hobby-airport/HOU-Central-Concourse


  • Domestic to International - Re-check Bags?
    Aug 22, 2013
    Thank you all for your help, wonderful site. On 8/30, arrive from ATL on DL2032 at 7:25. Connecting to BA292 to LHR at 10:30. I believe both airlines use Terminal A, however I booked each flight separately - do I have to exit terminal, claim baggage and re-check it on BA before coming back through security? I assume this would be the case and so gave myself 3 hours connection time to be safe. Thanks again!


    Yes, you will have to claim your bags from Delta and take them to BA and go back through security. You should have enough time.


    IAD has one main passenger terminal with Z gates and Midfield Concourses A through D. Both Delta & British use Concourse B; however as you have separate tickets and your airlines do not belong to the same Airline Alliance, you need, on arrival, head for the main terminal's baggage claim by means of a moving walkway. After re-checking in your bag at the British Airways counter, go through security check and take either the moving walkway or the AeroTrain back to 'Midfield Concourse A/B' (B gates: B35-B79). You have plenty of time.


    Thankyou thaug13, I appreciate it!


    Much appreciated ZP, thanks!

    hello! I'm flying from Moscow to Rome via Amsterdam by KLM. Connection in Amsterdam 55 minutes. Where usually arrives e departs KLM? If this is one company do I need to get my baggage? Thanks


    At AMS, arrivals from a non-Schengen (foreign) country go through passport control, follow signs to 'Baggage Hall' located on the ground level, retrieve bags, & go through customs for security check. If you have nothing to declare, proceed to the Arrivals Hall through the green passage way (this area also has the main exit & train station). Your bags will automatically be transferred to your Rome departure. When transferring to a Schengen (Italy) flight, passengers need to go through ticket control & security check. Your boarding pass and the overhead screens on arrival will tell you at which gate KLM will depart from to Rome. There is only one terminal with Concourses & gates B-C, D, E, F, G-H & M. Walking time fromB to M would take 15 minutes. You should be able to make it on time.

    Will fly from Brazil to Newak in connection with IAH. This is the first time I make connection in Houston. I will be arriving at terminal E and leaving the terminal C. I wonder what my procedure. Thank you.


    You will go through US immigration after you get off the plane, then claim your bags, then go through customs, then re-check your bags with United, then you go upstairs and back through security and follow the signs to C (which is connected to E).


  • Terminal changes and assistance
    Aug 20, 2013
    1) From YQT, on United- where do we clear customs? 2) With terminal changes, do you offer any services for those with disabilities? How do I find out about this?


    Flights from YQT clear US immigration in Terminal 5. If you have a connection on United or United Express, that will be in Terminal 1 or 2. If you are disabled and need wheelchair assistance, call United to request it.
