  • Walk elderly parent to the gate

    Can I get a "gate pass" and walk my elderly mother to the terminal gate?

     

    Probably yes. You have to request it from the check-in counter of her airline.

     

  • Changing planes within Terminal C?

    Hi, I am traveling on JetBlue from Washington Dulles to Fort Myers in a few days via Boston and I've noticed that my arrival gate is in a different location of Terminal C (Gates C11-C21) than my departing gate (C25-C36). Will I have to go through security again in order to change planes or will I be allowed to proceed through without that problem?

     

    The two sides of C are connected beyond security.

    I have to pick up a pet at the petsafe office. I was told they are on the second level of c terminal. Is there parking on the second level? Or is it the short term parking on level one that I need. I was told something about parking behind the buses. Looked at an airport map and don't understand. Thanks for any info.!!!!!!!!!!! The address is officially 344 Brewster road. Thanks for any help!

     

  • Tranfer time -> flight to San Francisco

    Hello, we are flying from Vienna to Amsterdam and them from Amsterdam to San Francisco. We have 1h for transfer. Is this enough? All flights are KLM. Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. AMS is made for quick transfers and all you will have to do is go through security at your departure gate.

     

  • Connecting Flight

    Delta Vacations booked me on a trip where I only have 51 minutes to make my connecting flight. I'm arriving from another U.S. city into Atlanta & then have said time to make another Delta flight that is going to Bermuda. Can someone help me as to what to expect? Will this be enough time to change planes? Any idea how far I will have to run on foot from one gate to another? P.S. I plan to bring a carry-on bag only so I won't be checking any luggage.

     

    You will arrive into one of the several concourses and depart from concourse E/F. All concourses at ATL are connected beyond security by the plane train and you can reach them within 20 minutes. If your first flight is on-time you will have enough time.

    Hi, We'll arrive from st lucia with JetBlue and then heading out for London with virgin.. All at terminal 4. Do we have to pick up our baggage, clear customers and re-check though it's the same terminal? If, how long will it take to go through?

     

    Yes, you have the procedure correct. Immigration and customs will take 30-60 minutes.

     

  • Connecting from IcelandAir to Alaska tonight -- 1:50 enough time?

    My flight from iceland arrives at 4:40pm and I booked a flight with Alaska to PDX at 6:30. Is that enough time to clear customs, transfer to the right terminal and go through security again? I'm not checking any baggage.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time, especially without checked bags.

     

    Thank you. I just made it through everything in about 20 minutes. Good thing I hold a USA passport - the lines for foreigners were out of control!

     

  • International to Domestic Connection

    Hi. I arrive on a flight with SAA, then have to clear customs and recheck in before catching a United flight two hours later. I'm a little concerned about the time. This is do-able? the tickets were gifts and not changable. And what terminals would I be going between? Thanks!

     

    If no serious delay in arrival, you should be able to make connection. In any case, after customs clearance & baggage re-check you will need to take the shuttle bus your connecting flight. (United uses Concourse C & D - I found no listing of SAA.

     

    IAD only has one terminal. You will clear US Immigration in the International Arrivals Building, then re-check your bags and go through security and take the AirTrain or Mobile Lounge to Concourse A, C ,or D. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time but won't have much time to spare.

     

  • 56mins enough for UAL connection?

    We are arrivin from San Diego an changing to UAL's flight to HNL in 56mins. Is that enough for us and our checked bags?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All United flights are connected beyond security at SFO.

     

    Ok, and even the bags will make it?

     

    There's no guarantee, but they should.

     

  • 36 minute connection time

    I am arriving from Honolulu at 11:50 AM and flying out at 12:26 PM. to Toronto. Both flights are UA. Change in terminals from C to A. 36 minutes. Do I have any chance of catching my flight.

     

    It will be tough, especially if your Honolulu flight is delayed at all. However, United has lots of later flights to Toronto that you can be rebooked on if you miss your connection.

  • 34 min connection time!

    Is this doable? Flying Delta from Las Vegas with 34 mins to make a connection to Amsterdam. I have no idea which terminal we arrive or depart from! Thankyou

     

    Both of your flights will be on the A Concourse of the McNamara terminal. If your first flight is on-time you will be OK. Also, Delta operates several Detroit-Amsterdam flights so unless you are already scheduled to be on the last one, you can be rebooked if you miss your connection.

     

  • arriving from Fort-Lauderdal to Montreal

    Hi, I will be arriving from Fort-Lauderdale with Delta and going to Montreal also with Delta, Can you tell me which steps I will have to follow ..... Never have a connecting flight in USA. Thank you so much

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 4 or Terminal 2 (probably Terminal 2) and depart from Terminal 2. If you arrive in Terminal 4 you will have to take Delta's shuttle bus from Terminal 4 to Terminal 2. If you arrive in Terminal 2 you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. In either case you won't have to go through security.

     

    Thank you so much ... It is such a relief to know that ....

     

  • JetBlue to AA connection, both international

    I'm flying Jetblue from BGI to JFK and then AA from JFK to YYZ. I only have an hour flights. Can I make the cnnection?

     

    sorry, that's an hour between flights.

     

    If you only have an hour between your flights you will NOT have enough time. You should not have booked that ticket and will have to change it.

     

    how about 2 hours 30 minutes to change from an international jetblue flight to a domestic jetblue flight? I would have to clear customs. Do both flights go out of the same terminal?

     

    International JetBlue flights arrive in T4 and domestic ones depart from T5. That should be enough time.

     

  • Connecting from T7 to T4/T2

    I will be arriving in JFK from Hongkong with Cathay (CX 830) @12.10 PM and will have a connecting flight with Delta to Buffalo (DL 2907) leaving @3:30 PM. I will be travelling with my wife and will be carrying 2 baggage bags and 1 carry on bag. Is it the time enough for me to catch the flight on time. Need your advise.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Once you clear customs in T7, if your bags are checked through to Buffalo you can re-check them in T7, if not you will have to take them with you on the AirTrain to T2 (your flight will depart from T2) and check them with Delta there (and pay checked bag fees). You will have plenty of time.

     

    Thank you for your information
