  • Terminal 5 to Terminal 4 - have 35 min only
    May 21, 2014
    I have only 35 min between my connection as the first flight was delayed. I have to move from terminal 5 to terminal 4, I already have boarding pass. Is it possible?


    It's possible if you don't have any baggage to transfer and check.


  • Enough time?
    May 21, 2014
    I'm arriving in JFK T8 from YYZ at 0810 and my next flight is CX841 at 0900. Would I be able to make it?


    It will be very difficult - you'll have to take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train to Terminal 7 and go through security. It's possible but there's very little room for any delays, which are common at JFK.


    If I get into NYC the night before (2145 into LGA), should I go straight to JFK to wait for my next flight or do you have any other advice?


    You'd have to sleep on the floor at JFK if you went straight there - I'd stay in a hotel near JFK or LGA.


  • Time needed ... Terminal C to Terminal E
    May 21, 2014
    I am flying Jet Blue from Richmond, VA arriving in Terminal C and then departing on Are Lingus from Boston to Dublin in Terminal E. I have 1 hour 20 minutes between flights. Is this enough time? I know that I will have to go through security again in TE. What's the usual wait time for security at TE. My flight to Dublin departs at 6:15pm.


    It should be enough time. You shouldn't have to do anything with your bags and JetBlue should be able to issue both boarding passes in Richmond.


  • Domestic to International
    May 21, 2014
    Flying from NY to Logan and catching a flight on SATA to Portugal. 1 hour 45 layover at Logan. That enough time or should I change initial flight?


    Will you have checked bags? What airline are you flying to BOS? I would probably want more time.


    Airline is not booked yet to Boston. Want to check before I book the initial flight. I assume I will book either Jet Blue/Delta to Logan and SATA to Portugal. Flight gets to Logan at 8:20, departs at 10:05. I am not sure how the bags work, I am beginning to think that we will have to pick up the luggage in Logan and that the bags will not transfer automatically.


    Yes, you will probably have to transfer the bags yourself. I would leave 2.5 hours to make your transfer, so if your SATA flight departs at 10:05 I'd want to arrive before 7:35.


  • Time for a smoke break?
    May 21, 2014
    I have a layover of 1 hour 45 min. between two United Airlines flights. Do I have time to go from concourse B to concourse C and back again.... I'm a smoker and I am wondering if I have time. Thank you!


    Yes, if your first flight is on-time you should have enough time to go to concourse C, buy something to drink, have a smoke and go back to B. The underground train connects all concourses inside security.


    Thanks for your help!


  • distance between terminal 1C and Terminal 1 AB gate no Z22
    May 21, 2014
    I amarriving fom Mumbai by LH 757 and then proceeding to Detroit by LH 442. Please advise me with the walking distance and the time required as I am travellling for the first time


    On arrival at FRA you will have to go through 'non-Schengen' foreign arrivals procedure: going through passport check, picking up your bags, going with them through customs clearance, then re-checking bags in & proceeding to your connecting gate. Lufthansa uses Piers A & B (A & B gates). Frankfurt is easy to transfer and signs will guide you. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/fra, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text. On arrival in Detroit you will have to go through passport check, pick up bags and go through customs clearance before exiting the terminal.


  • 1 hr 40mins connection
    May 21, 2014
    Hi We're travelling on United from Sydney to LAX (arr 10:40), then onto United Express flight to Kelowna, Canada (dep 12:20). We're arriving at T6 or 7, departing from T8. Is 1 hour 40 mins enough for this connection?


    No time to waste! On arrival you need to go through passport check, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance & re-check-in your bags where indicated. Then go through security check and on to Terminal 8 with gates 80-88. Terminals 6, 7 & 8 are connected at their secured areas - count on additional 15 minute transfer.


  • connection time
    May 21, 2014
    flying in from DFW on united 9:00p catching a United flight to LHR at 9:50 p . Is that enough time? (my conf# document says Terminal E to Terminal I)


    TE & TI are terminals at DFW (TI = Internat'l Terminal D). You are not clear which is your arrivals (IAD has Midfield Concouses A - D). For transfer options I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    You will likely both arrive and depart from the C/D concourse at IAD. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time. however, if your flight from DFW is late, you'll be stuck overnight in DFW. Luckily United flies a morning flight IAD-LHR so you won't be stuck a full day, just overnight.


  • Short connection 1 hr 5 min
    May 21, 2014
    We are flying Calgary - Denver and then Denver to Maui in August. The connection time is 1 hr 5 min. Any idea on if we need to change terminals and if this is doable? If we have checked luggage, do we have to claim our luggage once we land in Denver and then drop it off when heading to Maui?


    At YYC go through US Customs Clearance; at Denver you won't need to re-check-in your bags (unless you bought two separate tickets for 2 airlines). Your arrival at & departure from depends on which airline(s) you use. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/den then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    Assuming both flights are on United. You will pre-clear US Immigration in Calgary. In Denver all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will both be on concourse B. You should have plenty of time if your first flight is on-time.


    Yes, they are both on United. Thanks for your help as it's eased my mind on the short connection! So I assume then that my checked bags will have no problem getting moved over in time.


    Both flights are on United so it seems I won't have any issues. Thx!


  • Plane change time short
    May 30, 2014
    I'm flying from Seattle, WA to Burlington, VT with only 45 minutes to change planes in Chicago. Both legs on United. enough tome for checked luggage?


    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that should be enough time. All United gates at ORD are connected inside security.


    You should not have to claim and recheck your baggage in Chicago. It will be checked in Seattle to your final destination and the same on the way back unless I am wrong?


  • Re-check Baggage? Domestic-Internationl Flight
    May 20, 2014
    Hi, Im traveling from LAX to Durango Mexico, and connecting in IAH with United. I have a layover wait of 2hrs and 50 mins.Question is will I have to recheck my luggage or will the airline take care of transferring my luggage ot the different airplane? Also will I have to go through security check or TSA in order to get to my departure gate again? and last one, if I have enough time during the layover can I get out of the airport to sightse? and willI have to go through TSA or security check in order to get to my gate?


    On your way to Mexico you won't have to do anything with your luggage at IAH, you will just have to go from your arrival gate (likely Terminal C) to your departure gate (Likely Terminal B). The TerminaLink train connects all Terminals inside security. You do not have enough time to see any sights.


  • 52 minute connection time
    May 20, 2014
    Arriving from Las Vegas on DELTA 1389 at 8:58pm. Connecting to DELTA 4112 (Endeavor) to Ottawa, Canada at 9:50pm. Is 52 minutes enough to make the connection? This a Wednesday in early June.


    Your transfer time should suffice. However, the McNamara Terminal with its Concourses A, B & C is huge. To find out how to connect between its Concourses, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/dtw, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    Yes, you should have enough time. You will arrive in Concourse A and depart from B or C, which are connected by an underground tunnel with moving walkway. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Southwest Terminal 1 to United Terminal 7 - How?
    May 20, 2014
    Hi, what is quickest way to get from Term 1 to Terminal 7? Do I have to go through security again at Terminal 7? I have 2hrs. Is this enough time to retrieve bags, recheck bags and go through security again? (Flying in with Southwest and out to HNL with United). Thank you!


    You have to take your bags on the shuttle bus that runs on the lower level or, you can walk across the center of the airport on the lower level (through/past the parking garages). You will then have to check your bags and go through security and to your departure gate. You will barely have enough time if your Southwest flight is on-time.


    If you bought both flights on one ticket, your bags will be transferred automatically - if not, check with Southwest first; if you would need to take your bags along & re-check them in at T7 your time will be tight. Between T1 & T7 are two big parking garages - without bags you can walk between them to the other side. OR use the LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island in front of each terminal, under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', which runs every 12-15 mins. Your next stop after T1 would be T2, T3, TBIT, T4 to T7 - 7 stops or about 18 mins. In both instances you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate.


    Your bags will not be transferred automatically, Southwest does not interline bags with any other airline. tumay - stop giving bad advice.


  • How do I get from Terminal 4 to Terminal 2 - easiest way?
    Aug 19, 2014


    As you will be an international arrival at JFK's T4, you need to go through passport check, pick up bags & go through security check. If you bought both flights on one ticket, simply re-check-in your bags where indicated and take the Airline Terminals train to T2 (next stop), where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/jfk, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    Thank you very much! I have the flights on different tickets. I will open the quick links on that web site




  • ICN-SEA-ANC travel
    May 19, 2014
    Case 1- Arrive at SEA from ANC via Alaska Airlines with 2 hours and 22 mins to connect to Asiana Airlines to ICN. Case 2- Arrive at SEA from ICN via Asiana Airlines 2 hour and 5 mins to connect to Alaska Airlines to ANC. In both cases, Is this enough time to claim checked bags and re-check them again? Case 3- Same with case 1 except both tickets were not purchased together.


    Those are questions. Thank you for your answer in advance


    Case 1 - you can make with tickets purchased together or not. Case 2 - you can only make with tickets purchased together, it's too difficult if you have to take your bags to the main terminal to re-check
