  • Is 40 mins connection at ORD enough?
    Oct 14, 2014
    Flying FLL to ORD and then 40 mins later on to LHR, all AA flights. Will I make it? Same terminal I think but I am at the back of the plane, which will not help.


    If your first flight is on-time you will be OK, but yes, you are right, not much time to spare for delays.


    Thanks- will get my running gear on...


  • Layover of 50 min or less
    Oct 13, 2014
    I am flying from CLT to ATL, arriving Concourse A, then connecting to an intl flight on Concourse E. If the CLT flight is on time I have 50 min. to connect. I have been tracking it and it is late more than it is on time. Just how much time do I need to get from A to E?


    It will take about 15 minutes to get from A to E on the Plane Train.


  • Getting from one terminal to another

    How do I get from terminal 4 to terminal 3?


    Washington Dulles does not have a Terminal 3 or Terminal 4. It only has one Terminal.


  • Connection time to Seoul
    Oct 13, 2014
    I've been notified that my flight schedule was changed. The AA flight from Baton Rouge, Louisiana (BTR) will arrive DFW at 9:15 am. The next AA flight from Dallas (DFW) to Seoul (ICN) is 10:15 am. Do I (and my checked in baggages) have enough time to board on the flight to Seoul? Do I have to pick up my baggages and have them go through the security screen again at Dallas?


    All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, nothing with your luggage or security. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security. An hour should be enough time.


  • Connection - is there enough time?
    Oct 13, 2014
    Hi I'm flying from LHR - MCO with a stop over of 1hr 20 in IAD. I've booked the flights together through expedia and its all flying with United. Do I have enough time to make the connecting flight?


    That is 10 minutes below the minimum connection time for International->Domestic at IAD. However, you have a good chance of making it since United has its own immigration and customs facility in the basement of its concourse.


  • conenctin help T1 to T3
    Oct 13, 2014
    I am flying in from Toronto on Air Canada arriving at 8:35 am and have 1 hour layover. Catching American Eagle flight to St Louis at Terminal : T3 Gate : L6A . Do I have enough time to make this connection


    Air Canada flights arrive in Terminal 2. Even if you are in fact on a United flight that arrives in Terminal 1, all three terminals are connected by walkways inside security. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time. Be sure to check-in online for your AA flight before you leave Toronto.


  • Terminal 7 to Terminal B
    Oct 13, 2014
    I am arriving from Las Vegas by UA529/LH9409 at 14:49 terminal 7 & want to catch flight to Frankfurt LH 457 at 16:20 from terminal B. Is the layover time enough to make this connection. I have single PNR so can I have through check-in from Las Vegas without collecting my baggage at Los Angeles and catch my flight to Frankfurt.


    Yes, that should be enough time - you will just have to walk from T7 to the TBIT and go through security. It should take about 20 minutes to do that walk.


    Thanks for your prompt reply.


  • How to get to main terminal from bagage claim
    Oct 13, 2014
    We will arrive at SeaTac next week on AS at 1:40PM and then will need to claim luggage at baggage claim. We will then need to get to the main terminal to check in with Icelandair for a 4:30PM international flight. I would sure appreciate specific information on how to get from baggage claim to the Icelandair counter which I assume is in the main terminal? Is there an elevator we can use for this process? Are the floors clearly marked? We are from a small rural town and large airports make us very nervous. Thanks for any help.


    The Domestic baggage claims and All Check-In Counters are in the same building. Yes, there will be an elevator between floors.


  • connection time - domestic to international flight
    Oct 13, 2014
    I am trying to verify whether 1:20 is sufficient time for a connection from Washington National through CLT to Rome Fiumicino. How much time is necessary for a nonUS citizen to clear immigration and change flights?


    You do not go through US Immigration when leaving the US. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.


  • Flight from Toronto to Dhaka via Philadelphia and Doha
    Nov 5, 2014
    Hi, I am going to Dhaka from Toronto. I will take US airways to get to Philadelphia. Then I will take Qatar airways. I have a Canadian passport. Do I need to clear immigration and collect my luggage to clear customs and recheck? I also need to go terminal C from terminal A. I have 2 hours to connect my flights. Is it enough? Thanks.


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto. You will not have to go through any checks or do anything with your baggage in Philadelphia. Terminals A and C are connected by a walkway. You should have plenty of time.


    Hello, I would be travelling to Toronto with a stop over at Philadelphia airport. Would 1 hr and 22 mins be enough to make to my connecting flight to Toronto? Also would I have to clear USA customs?Thanks


    pg05dc - where are you coming from? If it's domestic that should be plenty of time. You do not go through US Customs when leaving the US.

    Thank you very much.


  • 50 min layover
    Oct 13, 2014
    I am flying from Salt Lake City to NY via Phoenix. I land at 8:58pm and depart again at 9:50. is 50 min enough time to make connection on a US Airways flight from SLC to American Airlines flight to EWR? No baggage to check. Both flighs in terminal 4. Thanks. Teenager travelling solo.


    Both flights will be US Airways. You should have plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Is the 1 1/2 hour layover enough time for a transfer from lh 949 to lh 400 ?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. Since you are not entering the Schengen Area you will not have to go through passport control.


    good luck with that. fra airport is a big mess with lots of security checks, slow and nasty personnel and horrific signage. it will be nerve wrecking and nail biting is guaranteed.


  • 95 mins to connect from T4 (int'l flight) to T2
    Oct 22, 2014
    Will be arriving to JFK T4 from SVO on Delta. Connecting to a JFK-YYZ flight leaving from T2. I'm a Canadian so have to go through the general immigration. Delta Platinum Medallion. No luggage. What's the likelihood of me making the connection? And what is the best/shortest way to get to T2 - heard one could turn back and re-clear security in T4 and then take a bus to T2, or take a train to T2 and clear security there - what's best? Thanks!


    Since you didn't post how long you have, I can't tell you your chances of making the connection. It's less walking to go through security in T4. However the train runs more frequently and is faster than the bus. It's a toss up.


    Thank you for your reply. Connection time is in my post title, sorry. It's 95 minutes.


    You should probably have enough time.


    Yes, I was enough time. Armed with the knowledge of the fact that there has to be a Quick Connect, I walked off the plane, followed the hallway, saw a lady directing people, asked her to show me where to go to Quick Connect (left walkway), and followed it. There was one family in front of me. Then stood in a fairly short line to Customs (maybe 5 minutes), walked out of the Customs area into the airport, turned left and walked to the sign Air Train, escalator upstairs, train on the left, another 5 minutes and I was near T2. You have to walk outside to reach it, but once there, security was quick. With 85 minutes for the connection, I had 30 minutes in the lounge before boarding.


    Thanks for your report.


  • travelling from terminal 1 to terminal 3
    Oct 13, 2014
    it's my first time to travel alone. i will be arriving in rome from florence at terminal 1. i have 3 hrs and 20 mins. to arrive to terminal 3. i will have to check in again at quatar airlines. how will i get to terminal 3.? will i make it in time ??? is quatar airlines also in terminal 3??


    You can just walk to Terminal 3. You should have plenty of time.


  • Do I have to go out to the terminal?
    Oct 13, 2014
    I will be traveling from LHR to ATL on BA. I will only have hand luggage. Once in ATL I have to catch a flight on DL to Texas. Since I do not have to collect any luggage, after I clear Immigration, is there a way to go straight to my Gate for the texas flight without going out to the terminal and going through security check? Thanks!


    There is a security checkpoint right after you go through Customs, go through there and you have access to the Plane Train that leads to every departure concourse. You will have to check-in for your Delta flight on-line or on your smartphone in order to do this so that you can get through security.
