  • Need to know arriving and departing gates
    Jul 27, 2014

    7/30/14, 10:28 am flight 401 arriving from Logsn; 7/30/14 departing flight .5186 11:59 am to Albuquerque. Would like to know arriving and departing gates

     

    UA401 will arrive in Terminal C and 5186 will depart from B. C and B are connected by the TerminaLink train inside security.

    I am arriving at JFK T8 from LHR at 1.10pm and departing from T8 to Orlando at 2.35pm. Has anyone got any experience of doing this connection with the short layover and did you have to rush to get through immigration and customs etc to make the second flight? I'm just a bit worried about the connection time being too short.

     

    While your transfer time is extremely short, you arrive/depart at non-rush hours and in the same terminal. Note that T8 has Concourse B with gate 1-16, while near its gate 14 is access to Concourse C with gates 31-47.

    I am flying from MAA India to PHX via FRA and ORD by LH. FRA -ORD and ORD - PHX operated by UA. Have I to undergo immigration and customs formalities in ORD or in PHX? Have to pick up my checked in bags at ORD and re check in to OHX? I am travelling on student visa.

     

    You will go through US Immigration in ORD T5, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags with United, then take the ATS Train from T5 to T1 and then go through security.

     

    Thanks a lot for your immediate response.

     

  • Is 41 minutes enough time?

    Flight UA5151 arriving IAH 12:15pm. My departing flight UA1401 from IAH leaves 41 minutes later at 12:56pm. Will I have enough time? I don't know which terminals?

     

    UA 5151 will arrive in C. UA 1401 will depart from C if domestic and E if international. You should have enough time in either case as C and E are directly connected and all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • Enough Time

    Arriving Southwest at 7:30am with an international Alaska flight leaving at 10am, is this enough time to make it to Alaska's terminal (T6?), check-in, and get through security

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. It's fastest to just walk across the airport through the parking garages rather than waiting for and taking the shuttle.

     

    Thank you Zap!

    Hi, I am flying into BOS (6:18pm) from CLE TB , and have to catch a Aer lingus flight to Shannon at 7:20pm TE. 1 hour and 2 mins. Is this doable?

     

    Were your tickets purchased separately or together? If purchased separately and you have checked bags it's impossible. If you purchased together or if you don't have checked bags it's possible if you can check in for your Aer Lingus flight online before travel, but you won't make it to TE before the checkin cutoff. Even then it's very risky.

     

    Hi, Thank you for your response. I purchased them together. would it be advisable to book a earlier flight from CLE?

     

  • 59 Minute connection time ?

    I don't fly regularly and I did review other posts here but with the variables...? I'm flying United into IAD sched to arrive on a Fri 11:21 a.m. and connect United for YUL - Trudeau depart 12:20 (59 min). I booked assuming this would be enough but after reading some posts ?

     

    Correction - not sure why I was thinking "Friday" this flight is on a TUES if that makes a difference.

     

    As long as your first flight is domestic this should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you have to go between the A concourse and C/D they are connected by the mobile lounge and Aerotrain.

     

    Yes incoming flight is domestic. Thank you ZAP !

  • turkish air to jet blue

    I am flying from turkish air terminal E and then catching flight of jet blue to detroit, layover is 2 hr, is that time enough ? will the luggage transfer or we need to take it out and go through the custom and recheck again.

     

    It will be very difficult to make that connection. You will have to claim your baggage after US Immigration, then go through US Customs, then if your bags are tagged through to DTW by Turkish you can re-check again with JetBlue in Terminal E, but otherwise you will have to take them with you to Terminal C to check with JetBlue. You will also have to go through security again when you get to Terminal C.

     

    Thanks a lot

    My flight is scheduled to arrive in Houston at 12:02 pm and my connecting flight to Port of Spain Trinidad departs at 12:53 pm. Is 51 minutes sufficient time to exit the plane, clear customs and re-check? I need to know if this is possible.

     

    On your way to POS, you do not have to clear customs and re-check in IAH. You do not go through US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. You will go through Trinidad Immigration when you get to POS. All you will have to do in IAH is go from your arrival gate in Terminal C to Departure gate in Terminal E. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    I have a connecting flight with United Air from Terminal 5 to Terminal 2. I only have 1 hour and 20 minutes to do it. Do I have enough time?

     

    Without checked bags it's definitely doable but still a little risky. With checked bags it will be pretty difficult. The minimum international -> domestic connection time at ORD is 90 minutes. You can ask to be rebooked if you're uncomfortable with that connection time.

     

    Thank you. I will have baggage, so I have to go through customs. I will try to reschedule for a later flight.

    Hello, I will be arriving from New York to Houston (terminal C) and taking my next plane to McAllen (terminal B). The problem is I only have an hour. Will it be enough time?

     

    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that should be enough time. C and B are connected inside security by the TerminaLink train.

     

  • LHR to Indianappolis

    Hi, I have booked with British Airways and the connection at ORD is around 2 hours- is this going to work out? Can I check my luggage from Heathrow to go straight to Indianappolis?

     

    2 hours should be enough time. Your bags will be tagged through to Indianapolis but you will still have to claim them at ORD T5 after immigration to go through US Customs, then you can immediately re-check them with the airline you are flying to Indianapolis (presumably AA), then take the ATS train to your departure terminal and go through security.

     

  • GUA-IAH-YYZ 1H30M transfer time in IAH

    Hi, I am flying GUA-IAH-YYZ-TLV with 1H30M tranfer time in IAH, will this be enough? Please note that I am not an american citizen and need go throw immigration. All the flights are with air Canada. Thanks

     

    Please check your itinerary. Your GUA-IAH flight will be operated by United. Your IAH-YYZ flight could be operated by United Express OR Air Canada. Who operates it will really impact your connection as if it's operated by Air Canada you will have to take the TerminaLink Train all the way to Terminal A after clearing US Customs and re-checking your baggage, but if it's operated by United Express it will leave from B or C. Your connection time is possible but leaves very little spare time for any delays.

     

  • FRA-IAH-CUN, 1H50M transfer time on 23 Dec

    Hi, will be flying FRA-IAH-CUN on 23/12 with 1H50M(110M) transfer time at IAH. Is that enough?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. Both flights will be in Terminal E, but you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bag, go through US Customs, re-check your bag with United, then go through security and back to the departure gates.
