    my flight from ATL arrives at JFK at 1030 am at T2. I have international flight from T4 at 1220 pm. I am also checking one bag at ATL. My question is what is the fastest way to move from T2 to T4 once I collect my checked bag from T2. I will be arriving at JFK on Delta at T2 and leaving in Etihad at T4


    You can take the AirTrain one stop between T2 and T4 since you will be outside security when you claim your bag.

    I'm flying from toronto to ord on AA arriving 12:00 then have AA flight at 1:05 to nashville TN. Do you think that's enough time. I booked the flights together as a YYZ to BNA


    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that should be plenty of time. Both flights will be in Terminal 3 and all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thanks do I have to get my luggage or does the airline transfer it?

    I arrive on ANA on International Terminal at 9:30 am and connect to Alaska Airlines at Terminal 1 at12:55 pm. will I have enough time to go through immigration/custom to recheck my baggage with Alaska ?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time.


  • connecting from Term C to Term A
    May 12, 2014
    I arrive into IAD at Gate C18 and have only 40 minutes to transfer to A1 (both flights are US Express). What is the fastest way to transfer from "C" to "A" ??? The last time I did this I took the people mover vehicle .... waited a long time for departure and missed the connection. I see the AeroTrain goes from C to A but one has to walk a long way. What is the fastest way from C18 to A1 ?


    The fastest route from C18 to A1 is likely the Aerotrain.


  • Raleigh durham to Hartford - 41 minute connection time enough?
    May 12, 2014
    Have a 6 am united Express flight from RDU to Hartford CT that changes at Dulles. Is 41 minutes enough time to make the connection?


    Yes, that should be enough time. If you need to change concourses, A is connected to C/D by the aerotrain and mobile lounge.

    Hi, I'm flying from Montreal Canada (YUL) to IAD using GOJET AIRLINES DBA UNITED EXPRESS and connecting to a United flight to London. Connect time in Washington, DC (IAD - Dulles) is 48 minutes. Do you think it's possible? I am not a US citizen (but have an ESTA) and I will have checked in luggage. Will I have to go through customs or take my luggage?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal. In IAD all you will have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will both likely be on the C/D concourse.


  • Connecting to RIO from SFO
    May 11, 2014
    I have a 1 hr connection between arriving in CLT from SFO and departing to RIO. Do I need to: 1. recheck my bags? 2. go through security? 3. go through customs and immigration? Will I make the RIO flight? Thanks in advance


    Only international arrivals at the U.S. need to go through customs & re-check-in bags. If you have bought both flights on one ticket, your bags will be automatically transferred. Your arrival at, and departure from CLT depends on which airlines you take. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/clt, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates at CLT are connected inside security.


  • munich to las vegas
    Jun 8, 2014
    hi we are travelling from Munich to Las Vegas through IAH on June 23.with United Airlines. arrivel terminal E, departure terminal B. connecting time 1.35 hours. This is our first time in the US, need some info about everything. :) thx


    To get 'everything' info I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iah /las then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text, paying attention to International arrivals (at iah) terminals & transfers.


    Your departure to Las Vegas will not be from Terminal B, it will likely be in Terminal C. You will barely have enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, then re-check your bags, then go to the departure level go through security, and then to your departure gate.


    And what if we cannot make the it, would United offer us another flight to Vegas or we will need to pay for another tickets?


  • Connecting flight in Dallas
    May 11, 2014
    Hi I will be flying from Austin to San Francisco via Dallas - all on the same carrier, American Airlines. May i check if i will need to go through customs or go directly to the gate for my connecting flight to SF? Do i need to claim my baggage as well? Thanks for the help!


    At DFW, American airlines uses Terminals A & D, American Eagle Terminal B (all with corresponding gates - i.e. gate A-10) Your ticket & overhead screens on arrival will indicate fight & gate numbers. If you need to switch between terminals, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/dfw, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text. Only international arrivals go through customs & re-check-in bags.


    Austin, Dallas and San Francisco are all in the United States, why do you think you'd need to go through customs?


  • aitllia to US Airways flight
    May 11, 2014
    Can I go directly from a flight on Aitalia from Naples to FCO to my departing flight to Charlotte NC on US Airways with out leaving to go to terminal 5? If luggage is checked through and I have or get a boarding pass from US airways inside the terminal with out leaving


    forgot to say that I have 3 hours in FCO and both flights are on the same ticket


    Terminal 5 is used for U.S. & Israel flights. Alitalia uses Terminal 1 (T1) - one of three connected terminals T1, T2 & T3 - on arrival follow signs to Boarding area H - H gates of T3, and take the shuttle train near the entrance to H gates to T5's Satellite with Boarding Area G & G gates.


    Alitalia and US Airways do have an interline agreement so your bags will likely be transferred, however you will probably have to go to Terminal 5 to get your US Airways boarding pass and go through security.


  • Enough time to connect?
    May 11, 2014
    Im traveling from Chicago to NY (JFK)Delta Air Lines, arriving at 10am (T2), and then have a flight from Turkish Airlines (T1) at 12:50pm, im not gonna check in anny bags and prob do the check in online. Is it enough time?


    Yes your time is sufficient. On arrival, take the 'Airlines Terminal Train' to T1 (only 1 stop a train runs counter-clockwise.

    I'm arriving into T8 at 1.10pm from LHR and then departing from T8 to orlando at 2.35pm. Will this 1 hour and 25 mins be enough to go through immigration, customs etc. I 'll be checked in right through to orlando but believe i've got to collect bags to go through customs at jfk and then re check them. Just nervous i will run short of time to do all this! Any advice appreciated.


    As you stay at Terminal 8, your transfer time should suffice. T8 has Concourse B with gate 1-16, while near its gate 14 is access to Concourse C with gates 31-47.


    Thanks - does T8 have its own customs hall or does it share with other terminals?


    Yes, T8 has its own immigration hall.


  • Time to go from T4 to check-in counter at T8
    May 10, 2014
    Hello, I will have about 40-45 minutes to go from T2 to Air Berlin check-in counter in T8 as they do not have web check-in and will close check-in 90 minutes prior to departing time. Woul I be able to make it?


    On arrival at JFK's T2, take the frequently-running 'Airlines Terminal Train' (follow signs) from T2 to T8 - only one stop - running counter-clockwise. At T8 you need to proceed to the AB check-in counter at Departures level and on to security check & your gates. T8 has Concourse B with gate 1-16 and near its gate 14 is access to Concourse C with gates 31-47.


  • Airport questions
    May 11, 2014
    Arriving from Costa Rica and layover in Atlanta for 1 hr and 20 min. Then catching next flight to Syracuse. Do we have enough time? And how and where do we go from there?


    You arrive at the International Terminal of ATL and depart from one of the domestic terminals - depending on which airline you take. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/atl then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text - paying attention to 'International Arrivals' transfer options and terminal details.


    Upon arrival in the International Terminal, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, then re-check your bags with Delta. You will then follow the sign towards connecting flights, go through security and then take the plane train to the concourse of your flight to Syracuse.


  • 1 Hour internation-domestic connection with no checked in luggage
    May 11, 2014
    I have exactly 1 hour between my arrival with Iberia from MAD and my departure with Delta #480 to ATL on Sunday afternoon. I will have only a carry on and no checked luggage. Assuming my first flight will not be late will it be possible to make it to the domestic Delta flight? What do I need to do exactly in order to be as fast as I can? As I purchased the two tickets separately is there a chance that Iberia or Delta staff will assist me in being on time in an immigration/security fast track or something of the sort? If my first flight is late and I miss the second flight will Iberia and/or Delta put me on the next flight to ATL with no additional charge? Thanks


    As you do not have to go through customs clearance at JFK, all you need to do after passport check at Terminal 7, take the frequently-running 'Airlines Terminal Train' from T7 to T2 - running counter-clockwise). However, at T2 you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate. You have enough time.


    Thanks! I was not totally lucky. The Iberia flight was late by 45 minutes and I missed the next flight. Although it was a separate reservation Iberia rebooked the Delta flight for me and 2 hours later I was on my way.
