  • Terminal C to Terminal A Shuttle
    Jun 8, 2013
    How frequent does the shuttle from Terminal C gate 71 to Terminal A run? Is it every few minutes?


  • uae to rome then florence
    Jun 9, 2013
    i am travvelling from uae to rome by emirates to rome terminal2 and reaching 8.05 , is it possible i can catch 9.30 domestic flight to florence? do i have to go thru passport control?? plz help!@


    On arrival at FCO you need to go through 'non-Schengen' (foreign) passport control. Thereafter your domestic flight to Florence depends on which Boarding Area /gate you depart from. The overhead screens on arrival will indicate connecting flight number & gate. All Boarding Areas B - H (each with corresponding gates (like C16) are inter-connected. Your transfer time should suffice. Make sure that Emirates will transfer your bags to your connecting airline; otherwise you would have to claim your bags on arrival & check them in at the connecting terminal.


  • C27 to A3D
    Jun 8, 2013
    What is the best route my 14 year old should navigate from gate C27 to gate A3D within a 30 minute period?


    Follow walkway to concourse C aerotrain station, take aerotrain from C to A, follow signs to gate.


  • Connection time
    Jun 8, 2013
    I will be flying into Newark from Oslo Norway with United & will be connecting onward to Cleveland, again with United. Arrival TC & Departure TC. 1 hour 25 minutes 'layover'. Is this enough enough time?


    It depends, it'll be awfully tight with having to go through immigration. Luckily United has a lot of flights from Newark to Cleveland.


  • Very clean and friendly service
    Jun 8, 2013
    Lounge was very clean and new in appearance. Good sized for such a small airport. Good selection of snacks for free ( better than American's Admirals club in much larger LaGuardia). All beers were free, not just domestics.


  • SYD-DFW-CUN connection.
    Jun 11, 2013
    I'm wondring if anybody knows if I can tag my luggage from SYD via DFW to CUN. Flying Qantas and connect with American. My transit time is 3hrs. Do I need to clear customs or do I stay in the security area? Do I collect my bags and check in again? That seems wrong - right ? Both airlines arrive and depart from terminal D. Thanks Cheers Patrick


    1. Both AA & Qantas are members of the OneWorld Alliance - your bags will be transferred automatically to your connecting flights. 2. As an international arrival, you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag. Terminal D has gates gates D6-D40 - you can walk or take the Skylink train, which stops near gates D1, D20, D25 & D34. Food & shops are in both pre- and post-security areas. You have plenty of time!


    Thanks for the info. So you saying I need to check in again? ( International to international connection? ) Sorry mate, it has been a while since I traveled through the States. Ta


    QANTAS should be able to issue you both boarding passes in Sydney.


    Yes, you need to check again, well it's more like a drop off... Arrive -> immigration -> pick up bags -> customs -> drop off bags -> security (x-ray, metal detector etc) -> new flight I do this all the time 3 hours sounds like enough, but not by much, DFW is SUPER slow


  • Terminal 7 to Terminal 4
    Jun 8, 2013
    I am flying from IAD to JFK on United, arriving in Terminal 7 at 7:00 pm. On a separate ticket, I am flying standby on KLM to Amsterdam from Terminal 4. I am aiming for the 8:12 pm departure. Do I have time to make that connection? My plan is to have only carry-on luggage.


    Unless you travel on weekend, 7am is rush hour at airports. Even with only carry-on luggage, you need to (a) take the 'Airline Terminal Train' running on average every 8 mins. to your connecting terminal (next stop T5, T4); then go through security check (which can take up to an hour these days) - not to mention that your incoming flight may be late. T4 has Concourses A & B with corresponding gates; each of which has its own security checkpoint.


    He's traveling at 7 PM. However, I still think that's a very risky connection as there's a good chance your inbound flight will be delayed.


    Thank you for your reply. I thought it might be rather tight. I will continue looking for other options.


  • very little time
    Jun 7, 2013
    Arrive Delta flt# 2246 5:42am, depart delta fly #7627 6:45 am (operated by Alaska air). Do they share the same concourse? Should I have time to connect?


    They do not share the same concourse but all the gates at SEA are connected beyond security.


  • 45 minutes to transfer.
    Jun 7, 2013
    Hi. We are flying into FCO at 10 am on Air Malta. We need to board a Delta (Alitalia) flight at 10:45 to Toronto Canada. Is this feasible? thank you.


    Yes, barely. You will arrive and depart from the same terminal (Terminal 3).


  • Is 50 mins enough time?
    Jun 7, 2013
    Next week I have an upcoming flight from Fairbanks, Ak to Pittsburgh, Pa with a 50 minute layover at ORD with united my question is will this be enough time to make my connecting flight? I'm a little anxious flying already trying to get back home for a surprise visit I just do not want the surprise on me and miss my flight! Thanks in advance


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will arrive in Terminal 1 and if your flight to Pittsburgh is on United mainline it will also be in Terminal 1, if it's on United Express it could be in Terminal 1 or 2 (but you can walk between the two terminals without having to go through security)


  • How to go from Terminal 3 to 8
    Jun 7, 2013
    I flying from Orlando will land in JFK @ 9:30 and Emirates @ 11:00. How to get to Terminal 3 and will that be enough time


    Terminal 3 is closed. If you are on Delta, your flight from Orlando will arrive in Terminal 4. Emirates operates from Terminal 4 as well, not Terminal 8. Were your tickets bought on one reservation - if so you can check your bags through and you will have enough time. If not I think it might be tough for you to claim your bags and re-check them with Emirates in enough time.


  • Internat Transfer AA Madrid to Toronto
    Jun 7, 2013
    We are arriving at JFK on AA with 2 hours to board a connecting flight on AA to Toronto. I understand we will have to take our hold luggage through customs. Will we also have to go through passport control and airport security again before going to our Toronto flight? How straight forward is this as we will not actually be entering the States?


    You will be entering the US just like every other passenger. US Airports don't have special "transfer" wings. As such you will go through full US immigration inspection, then re-check your bags, then go upstairs to go through security for your flight to Toronto.


    Thanks for that. Very helpful. See that the US still hasn't noticed that strange place called the rest of the world yet :-) Thanks again


  • 45 minutes layover doable or crazy?
    Jun 7, 2013
    Looking to book a flight on American Airlines from Dulles (IAD) to Honolulu. There is a 45 minutes layover in LAX. Would this be enough time to make the connection or not feasible with distance, etc of terminals. Any help would be appreciated!


    Everything will be in the same terminal, so it's doable if your first flight is on-time.


  • connection with 2 small kids
    Jun 7, 2013
    I'm flying on Delta from Copenhagen to JFK then on to New Orleans with my 3 year old and 3 month old. I've never been through JFK and am nervous about a few things: 1. whether or not the airline will give me my stroller back at the gate and 2. can someone help me with claiming and rechecking my bags at customs? 3. how difficult is it to get from our arrival terminal to our connecting flight? Is it a bus? Train? We have a 5 hour layover so plenty of time, but I like to know what to expect. And any suggestions for kid play areas or things to do during our layover? Thanks!!


    You will arrive and depart in the same terminal (Terminal 4). They will probably give you your stroller back at the gate. What kind of help do you need claiming your bags? There usually aren't baggage porters working in immigration due to the difficulty of working there.


    Thanks, ZAP! I usually fly through ATL and go through customs/immigration there. I have to physically get my luggage off the belt and take it through to the area where you drop off your luggage for your connecting flight. Since I'll have a stroller, I won't be able to also pull/push a cart with 2 suitcases nor will I be able to pull them myself. In ATL they have helpers, just wondering about JFK. Thanks!


  • Can I do this?
    Jun 6, 2013
    Arriving terminal 3 (UA) and leaving terminal 1 (SkyWest) 60 min later. Will have to go thru security again into term 1? Is this going to go smoothly?


    You don't know for sure which terminals your flights will be using until the day before your flight. However, if you do have to change from 3 to 1, United runs a shuttle on the secure side of the airport so you won't have to go through security again. http://www.united.com/web/en-US/content/travel/airport/maps/sfo.aspx
