    What do you mean "check in my passport"?


  • 1 hour to connect from D to B
    Apr 18, 2013
    Arrive D (United) at 8:55pm and need to get to Lufthansa Int'l flight at a B Gate. Enough time? Quickest route?


    Fastest route is probably to take the shuttle from D to A and then walk to B. Hope that your first flight is on time and run.

    Hello ! I would like to ask, which is the shortest way to get from Terminal 1 A( schengen) to B ( non-schengen ) for my connection flight to Moscow. Can i use the tunnel between A and B? Or i have to walk around the terminals because of passport control. I checked the offered map on the website, but it wasn't exactly clear what is the best choice. I have 45 minutes , so its a hot connection. Flights are booked at once.


    On arrival at FRA, Concourse A, take the SkyLine Train to Concourse B (both concourses are in Terminal 1) running every 2-3 mins inside secured area.

  • parking at terminal D departing from
    Apr 18, 2013
    The only available parking was in a lot at terminal D. We are departing from terminal B. Can we walk from D to B?


    At LGA, TB is divided by the P3 long-term Parking lot from TC & TD, which are close together, and shall soon be connected. You can also take the Route A bus serving terminals and parking lots, running every 10-15 minutes.


  • arriving in lax with bike
    May 25, 2013
    im arriving with qantas at bradley terminal, i go through imigration then grab bag and bike box then go to customs after customs can i put my bag and bike box on conveyer after customs or do i have to bring it to my connection flight with alaska airlines to vancouver? and how far is it from bag pick up to customs? as i know if i can drag my box that distance... on way back i fly with alaska airline from vancouver to lax with connecting flight with qantas to australia through bradley do i need to go through immigration and customs at lax and do i have to grab my bag and bike box in lax before i go to connection flight? thanks


    There will be a re-check in Bradley. On the way back you will pre-clear US immigration in Vancouver. Then just have to go to the bradley terminal with yourself and your carry-ons.


    How far is bag pick up to customs in lax? Can I drag a bike box or do I need a cart? And how much is the cart and what notes or coins do they take? Thanks


    Usually the walk from the intl baggage claim to the customs counter to re-check isn't very far. I've never been through immigration in the TBIT so I can't tell you for sure if there are carts available or not. If there are they would take U.S. Currency (quarters and probably small bills) and possibly Credit Cards.


    Carts are free inside TBIT FIS area.


  • Change over time Qantas QF007 to QF4551
    Apr 18, 2013
    Hi, I'm arriving from Sydney with QF007 at 13.45 and am contemplating to connect to QF4551 (Delta flight) to Raleigh at 14.55. I was advised that this combination requires clearing customs and checking out my luggage to then board the next flight - will 70 mins suffice - especially while clearing customs (non US passport)? Any advice is greatly appreciated.


    I doubt that would be enough time as you'd likely have to change terminals too. Also, QF4551 is operated by American, not Delta. American has two later DFW-RDU flights so you could book the one you're suggesting with the knowledge that you can probably be rebooked on one of the later flights if you miss your connection.


    1. As an international arrival in the U.S. at DFW, you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag. 2. Your arriving and departing flight numbers indicate that both flights are Qantas flights (Delta probably operating the next leg of your journey). Qantas uses Terminal D, Delta Terminal E (TD, TE) with corresponding gates (i.e., E18). If you need to transfer to TE after baggage re-check, go through security check and take the Skylink train running every 2 mins to your connecting flight. If your connecting flight is with Delta and you need to transfer to to Terminal, you won't have enough time. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/dfw, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

  • Connecting to international flight
    Apr 17, 2013
    I am flying from Anchorage to India and will change flights in Seattle and Seoul, South Korea. I would like to get information on the following: 1. Do I have to collect check in bags in Seattle and re-check in to the Korean Air? 2. I will go through security check in Anchorage. When I transfer to connecting flight in Seattle, do I have to again go through security check or will I directly go to the gate of Korean Air? I just want to get an idea of time required in transit. Any information is highly appreciated. Thanks Pawan


    Was your ticket bought on one reservation? If so you probably won't have to claim your bags in Seattle. I believe all gates in Seattle are connected beyond security so you won't have to go through any security there either.


  • another question
    Apr 17, 2013
    what shuttle bus a, b, 1, 2


    Bus A (Airline Connections)


    THX. how busy do u think it is


    It really depends on the time of day, but the lower level at LAX is usually kind of a mess.


  • Terminal 7 to 2
    Apr 17, 2013
    Hi I have 1 hour 20 minutes to get from terminal 7 to 2 ua flight and air Canada flight at terminal 2. I'm new to lax and I need help


    You can take the shuttle on the baggage claim level or walk straight across the area between the terminals on the baggage claim level. Either way hope your flight is on-time and RUN. If there's a lot of traffic when you come out the doors, I'd definitely try to hoof it over to T2.


  • Buenos Aires - Rome - Kuala Lumpur

  • form T8 to T1
    Apr 23, 2013
    thank you for your response. I just thought it would be easier if I can pay one of the skycap I think that is what they are called and not worry about lifting my heavy luggage! Is that a possibility? If so where can I find them? Thank you again for taking the time to answer me.


    Skycaps are outside & inside the baggage claim areas of each terminal. Terminals are 1 & 8 are far apart. Not sure if Skycaps would do the transfer.


    is there a service to accompany my elderly client from T5 to T2 Jet Blue to Delta international departure, using two tickets? a paid service would be wonderful


  • Mexico to Brisbane, Australia connection
    Apr 17, 2013
    I'm travelling from Mexico City on AA658 to Dallas FW then onto Brisbane, Australia on QF008. The flight on the Mexico leg arrives at 2005 and the Qantas flight leaves at 21.55. Will I have time to make the connection through immigration and security?


    You arrive & depart from Terminal D of DFW. On arrival, you need to go through passport check, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance, re-check-in your bag (if AA transfer bags to Qantas), go through security check and proceed on to your connecting gate (Terminal D has gates D6-40). NOTE if AA does not transfer your bags, you need, after customs clearance, check in your bag with Qantas. Your time should suffice.

    40 min connecting time in Nov. Should I be concerned?


    If your flight is on-time you'll be fine. Both flights will be on the same concourse (even though it's a big concourse). Connecting on Delta in DTW is very simple.
