  • which terminals/gates do I arrive and depart out of
    Jul 9, 2013
    FLT 5671 from LCH to IAH tomorrow and then connecting to FLT 411 to TPA. Both operated by United. Less than an hour to catch connection at IAH


    5671 will likely arrive in A-North (although it could also arrive in B) and 411 will likely depart from C (although it could also depart from E). To go between terminals, take the TerminaLink train which operates on the secure side. If your first flight is On-time you'll be OK.


  • Horizon Terminal
    Jul 9, 2013
    Does Horizon operate out of the North Satellite?


    Some of their flights use the North satellite, but some also use concourse C of the main terminal.


  • Enough time to connect
    Jul 9, 2013
    I'm coming in on United Flight UA5673 from Indy at 7:57am and I only have 51 mintues to connect to my United Express Flight UA4236 to El Paso...will I have enough time to make my connection?


    5673 will likely arrive in Terminal B and 4236 will also likely operate from Terminal B so you should be able to easily make your connection. There's a slight chance that one flight might be in Terminal A-North. If so take the TerminaLink train between terminals. If your first flight is on-time you'll have enough time.


  • Alaska Flight Connections
    Jul 9, 2013
    We have a flight arriving from PDX at 9:15pm and a connection to FLL at 10:05pm. Any suggestion as for the time to get to the gates and how. The PDX plane flight is 2056 and the FLL is 28.


    Was not able to get listing for aariving flight 2056; however flight 28 to FLL (Alaska Airline) leaves from the North Satellite , gate N7. If your arriving flight is also by Alaska, you will simply walk to your connecting gate there.


    Thanks for the info, the 2056 flight is through Horizon Air operated by Alaska


    Flight 2056 could arrive at concourse C or in the North Satellite. If you need to go between C and the North Satellite there is an underground train.


  • Terminal 2 to Terminal 1
    Jul 8, 2013
    Can you walk from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1, for a connecting flight, without having to go through Security again?


    No, you have to take a shuttle bus -


  • Luggage

    My son is flying Air France from Norfolk to JFK, with a layover, then to Paris De Gaulle. Will he need to retrieve and re-check his luggage in JFK?


    His Norfolk to JFK ticket will be operated by Delta Connection. If both of his tickets were bought on the same reservation then Delta will transfer his bags for him. He will however, have to take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1 (assuming his JFK-Paris flight is actually operated by Air France), if that flight is also a Delta code-share then he should take the Delta shuttle bus from Terminal 2 to Terminal 4.


  • Traveling from St. Marteen to Boston via Miami connection
    Jul 8, 2013
    I will be traveling at the end of July 2013 from St. Marteen stopping in MIA for my connecting flight to Boston. This is my first time traveling via MIA, I have 2 hrs from my arrival Gate D8 to my departure flight Gate D33 and I am a bit worried that I may miss my connecting flight. After I have passed through Passport control, how do I make my way through the airport to get to my connecting flight on time? I won't have any baggage to claim, I will only have a carry-on luggage. Thank you.


    All you have to do is go back to the departures level and go back through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time assuming immigration isn't a total mess (it has been pretty bad in MIA lately).


    Thank you, I will keep my fingers crossed


  • I have 47 minutes in between connections at IAH - enough time?
    Jul 8, 2013
    I will be arriving on United from OMA into IAH and have 47 minutes till a connecting flight goes to CRP (also on United). I have heard that IAH just expanded the terminals and there was some concern if I had to run from A to E terminals. Is 47 minutes enough time to make two in the continental US connections?


    It appears that most of the United Express flights from OMA to IAH arrive in Terminal B (the mainline flight can arrive in C or E, usually C). All the IAH-CRP flights operate from A or B. So there's a good chance both your flights will be in B. If your first flight is on-time you should have enough time regardless though.

    arriving IAH on UA4299 2:30pm departing IAH on Lufthaansa 8867 at 4:10pm.what is the distance I will have to go and can I order a motorized cart?


    Your arriving flight will likely be in Terminal B and your departing flight will be in Terminal D if it is truly on Lufthansa (however, I cannot flind a Lufthansa flight 8867 from Houston and the number 8867 indicates that it is a codeshare flight operated by United). If you need assistance, request wheelchair assistance from United. Terminals B and D are connected by the TerminaLink train.


    Thank you so much as this will be a big help - especially the info that it will most likely be a United flight not a Lufthansa flight. I would have been looking for the wrong thing.. Thanks again


    Where is your second flight to?


    My second flight is from Franfurt to Prague. Thanks for helping


    So you're flying Somewhere-IAH-FRA-PRG?


  • Delta to Spirit Airlines connection?
    Jul 8, 2013
    I am flying into DTW on a delta flight and I have a connection flight with spirit airlines that is 45 minutes after I land. Assuming my flights are on time, will I make it even though I'll have to switch terminals?


    No, you will not. You have to take a bus between terminals and since not many people connect between terminals at DTW, the bus doesn't run very frequently. You might have a slight chance of making it if you have no checked bags and your Delta flight gets in early. You shouldn't have booked that connection.

    My family of four will be flying into CLT from Turks and Caicos. We have a 1hr. 33 minute layover on a Sunday evening. Will that give us time to collect luggage, clear customs, go through security and board on time? Thinking of just packing carryon luggage to avoid the collection step. Thanks!


    You should have enough time, but of course just packing carry-ons will help.


  • Delta flights terminals 2 and 4
    Jul 7, 2013
    We have a 55 minute connection between 2 Delta flights, arriving at Terminal 2 then departing from Terminal 4. I have heard the Delta shuttle bus line is sometimes long enough to fill 3 buses. Is there realistically a chance of making the connecting flight and are buses busier at certain times of day?


    The buses are probably busiest in the early afternoon, before the transatlantic flights leave in late afternoon. It's possible to make the connection, but as you say, it might be tough, especially with how delay-prone JFK is.


  • T8 to TB
    Jul 7, 2013
    I have 1:20 between flights arriving United Express in T8 to Lufthansa in TB. What's the best way to go between, and must I go through security again? Thanks.


    At LAX, you have 2 options to get from T8 to TBIT (TB) - both of them, however, still require you to go through security check at TBIT before proceeding to your gate. (a) walk: a short walkway is between T8 & T7. At T7 take escalator down to tunnel connecting to T6, T5, T4; take escalator up and walk left around the bend to TBIT. (b) take bus: 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. Next stops: After T8 but goes to the other side to T1, T2, T3 & TBIT: 4 stops or 10 mins. Hurry!

    I will be arriving on United airlines from Edmonton,Alberta then connect to Fort Lauderdale on United as well. Will I have to change terminals and if so do I catch a tram or can I walk


    As Edmonton Airport has U.S. Customs clearance, you are considered a domestic arrival at IAH. United is the only airline using Terminals A, B, C & E. On arrival, simply look at overhead screens to find your connecting flight & gate number; then look for the LinkTrain sign which starts at Terminal A and runs inside security taking a total of 30 mins to Terminal D/E station. (gate numbers correspond to Terminal (i.e., A10).


    You will likely both arrive and depart in Terminal C.


    thanks, much appreciated
