    Im arriving to IAH at 19:40 from Istanbul, Turkey at terminal D and have a connecting flight to MSY from terminal B at 9:16. can i make it?


    i mean 20:16


    Arriving at 19:40 terminal D from Turkey and going to New Orleans from terminal D(united) at 21:16. can i make the flight to MSY?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. Your flight to New Orleans will actually operate from Terminal B or C. However, all terminals are connected inside security by the TerminaLink train.


  • American Airlines connections
    Sep 22, 2014
    I am considering a flight from Seattle to Phoenix which gives me a 44 minute layover to catch a connecting American Airlines flight to San Jose, Costa Rica. Is this enough time to make my connecting flight? Are American Airlines gates all in the same area and inside security so that we don't have to go through security again? Will this be enough time to get connecting flight?


    Your flights will actually be operated by US Airways (assuming they haven't fully merged with American by the time of your flight). All US Airways gates at PHX are connected inside security. That should be enough time but doesn't leave much buffer for delays.


  • Enough connection time for an international flight?
    Sep 22, 2014
    Arrive from BDL on Delta. One hour layover. Then Delta to GCM. Is that enough time for this international connection?


    Yes, on your way there you only have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US immigration when leaving the US.

    Traveling USAir DIA to Venice through PHL. If checked bag in DIA, do I need to retrieve checked bag to go through customs again in PHL?


    If DIA is Denver then you do not retrieve the bag or go through customs in Denver. There is no US Immigration/Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Changing Terminals with C1 Transit visa
    Sep 22, 2014
    Hello All, My wife is travelling Bangkok - Haiti, she has the C1 Transit visa already. However she will arrive with Emirates into Terminal 4, and will leave from a different terminal. How it is possible to change terminals with this visa? Thank you, James.


    You show the visa to get through US Immigration. When she exits customs she will be outside security and free to go wherever she wants. They monitor visa compliance by checking to see if she boarded her onward flight to Haiti.

    Connecting time 55 minutes from Texas to Hong Kong. United all the way. Is this enough?


    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • QRO - IAH - ORD connection
    Sep 22, 2014
    Good day. I'm arriving IAH at 8:53 AM from QRO (Terminal E) to take a plane to ORD (Terminal C) at 10.22. Is this enough time?


    Yes, that should barely be enough time.


  • Is there time enough, please help!
    Sep 22, 2014
    I'm planning on arriving, have not bought the ticket yet, on the 5 of january 8:30 pm with probably US Airways to catch a connecting flight with Norwegian that leaves at a different gate 10:30 pm. This means that I have 2h approximately from touch down to pick up my bag, use the train that connects the terminals, check in my bags, go through security and go ombord before take off. I wonder, will I make it? How long times does it take to travel between the terminals? According to Norwegian they close their check-in 1hr before departure, have that in mind when you answer! Take care, AJ.


    You might have enough time if your first flight is on-time. but Delays at JFK are very common. It takes about 15 minutes to go from T8 to T4.


  • Grand Cayman to San Antonio, Connection 1 hr 20 min at IAH
    Sep 22, 2014
    Arriving from GCM to IAH at 7:44 pm on Dec 31st Will I be able to clear customs and make my connecting flight IAH to SAT departing at 9:05 pm? - All United Airlines flights)


    That is below the minimum allowed connection time. however, I doubt there are any later flights to San Antonio so you might as well try it.


  • Terminal 2 to Terminal 4
    Sep 21, 2014
    Do you have to get your bags at Terminal 2 before going Terminal 4, both are Delta flights? Also do you take the tram or shuttle bus between the two terminals?


    If your bags are tagged to your final destination you do not have to claim them in JFK as long as your first flight is domestic. If you take the shuttle bus you do not have to go through security again in T4.


  • In terminal transfer for my bags
    Sep 21, 2014
    Hello. I will travel from Chicago O'Hare with AA this Saturday, 27th. Arriving to JFK Terminal 8 at 4:15 PM. Next flight will leave to Helsinki, Finland also from Terminal 8, operated by Finnair Scheduled departure at 5:40 PM. Ticket was bought from one airline. Both companies are members of One World Alliance. Question: would 1 hour 25 minutes window be sufficient for my bags to be transferred in JFK. A bit worried to stay without bags in Helsinki following morning...


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. That is a very simple transfer.


    Thanks a lot! Will take my chance to check this out. Will post after if everything went well. Take care!


  • YYZ to SFO
    Sep 21, 2014
    Hello, My husband and I are flying in on Air Canada to San Francisco as a stop on our way to Hawaii. I booked the flight with 1 stop (SFO) and we will be transferring to United. We have a 9Hour stopover, will our bags be transferred or will we have to claim them and re check in? Thanks!


    If you bought your tickets together and your connection isn't overnight, your bags will be transferred.


  • Connection time Nice-jfk. JFK-Phoenix both with Delta
    Sep 23, 2014
    Hi, we arrive in JFK from Nice, France at 4.30pm with Delta and our Delta flight for Phoenix leaves at 6.35pm. Is this sufficient time to transfer as wéll have to change terminals? We are French. Thanks


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in Terminal 4, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs then re-check your bags then go through security. Your flight to Phoenix could depart from T4 or T2. If it departs from T2, Delta has a shuttle bus between T4 and T2 inside security.


    thks for your reply, which reassures me, as long as the immigration queue isńt too long ! Will Delta help us if our NceJFK flight is late or we miss the connection due to long queues inJFK? Your forum is a great help. Many thanks.


    Yes, they will book you on the next flight with seats available to Phoenix. However, since you're arriving late in the day it may not be until the next morning.


    if the next available flight jfk to Phoenix is the next day, will Delta pay for a hotel overnight near the airport or will we have to pay ourselves? Thks again. Julia

  • Terminal C 1.5 hour connection time from UK thru Newark to Ft Myers
    Sep 21, 2014
    Hi, i have a flight next week on United 28 from London to Newark with 90 minutes connection time for the United 1587 to Ft Myers. I have been worrying (especially after reading the posts on here) that 90 mins is not long enough to clear immigration, get cases, customs and recheck etc. I rang United today and they say that 90 minutes is ok. Is that correct or should i change to an earlier arrival in Newark?


    90 minutes is the minimum time allowed for such a transfer. It should be enough time if your first flight is on-time but doesn't leave much time to spare in case of delays.
