  • Connecting terminal 2 to terminal 1
    Nov 27, 2012
    2
    I have 47 minutes to connect from T2 to T2 , I am an older gentleman, will I be able to do this?

     

    You arrive at ORD, Terminal 2, either at Concourse E (gates E1A-E15), or Concourse F (gates F1-14 & or on lower level of concourse gates F11A, B & C) From there, you have two options to get to Terminal (Concourse B, gates B1-22; Concourse C, gates C1-31: (1) walk: From Terminals 2 to 1 -Note that all gate areas of all terminals are not connected, but the secured area, which is the upper level (Departures) has, right after you walk from gate F8 past gate F1, at right end a connector to Terminal 1, where you will arrive again in the secured area, and where you should proceed to nearby gate B6, walk past gate B8 (at right), take walkway to C gates, turn left to gate C15. (2) take the ATS shuttle train (follow signs) staring at T5 and serving T1, T2, & T3, running every few mins.

     

    He just said his connection is within T2! Why are you posting all this copy+paste gobbledygook tunov that doesn't apply to this situation? Terminal 2 is small and only really has 1 concourse (E and F are really just 2 branches of the same concourse), you can easily get between any of the two gates within 47 minutes.

     

  • Tight Connection: Arrive D, depart C

    I have a Delta connecting flight arriving at 8:48AM on Term D, with a departing flight at 9:33AM on Term C. Is this sufficient time? Are the terminals connected?

     

    On arrival at LGA at TD, you have the option of walking over to TC or taking the bus - in both instances you need to exit TD and go through security check at TC before connecting to your gate. (TC & TD are close together, but not coected. The B Shuttle bus runs every 10-15 mins between these terminals. Time is extremely short.

     

  • conecting dom to int'l flight

    We arrive in JFK @09.27 am by jetblue from orlando with the baggage.....and we connecting to int'l flight @13.50pm by China airlines to TPE ... is my time enough to get the connecting flight or should i have to take earlier flight from orlando ??

     

    You have plenty of time: JetBlue (code B6) uses both Terminals 4 & 5 adjacent to each other; while Chine Airline (code MU) uses Terminal 1. You need to find out from JetBlue if they will transfer your bags to the China Airline connecting flight - if not, you would have to claim your bags on arrival and take them with you on the Airtrain - connecting all terminals (follow signs) and check them in at China Airlines counter before proceeding through security and gates. If bags are being transferred, you may simply opt to exit your terminal and walk over to T1 or take the Airtrain, which serves the unsecured areas of the terminals.

    how long will the security check points wait time be at 530 am tomorrow

     

    Long. Security lines are always long early in the morning, and especially so the sunday after thanksgiving. If you're flying out of terminal 2 - humphrey, there's only one checkpoint. If you're flying out of terminal 1 - lindberg (most major airlines except southwest) you get a choice. It will probably help to look at an airport map while reading this. Checkpoint 3 is employees only, so that's out. If you're first class or elite, you can use checkpoint 4, although even that sometimes gets backed up. I generally prefer checkpoints 1 and 2 over checkpoints 5 and 6. 1 and 2 are smaller than 5 and 6 (6 is the biggest), but also less popular, because of where the check-in desks are placed. If your flight leaves from concourse A, B, C, D or E (plenty of delta flights and almost all non-delta flights), there's no reason not to walk down the ticketing area towards checkpoint 1 or 2, since you'll just have to make the same walk on the other side of security if you go through 5 or 6. The other options is the skyway checkpoint, which is accessible in the back of the parking deck. There is no way to check baggage if you go to this checkpoint, but if you only have carry-on bags, and your flight leaves from A, B, C or G concourses, it is worth considering.

    how long will it take to walk from gate D8 to D25B.

     

    You arrive at CLE, at Concourse D, between gates D2-D14, situated on opposite sides of tunnel entrance, which leads to four gateways at opposite sides - you need to get to D25 A-F. Can't tell you how long it takes.

     

  • Between B and G

    fastest route between terminal B and terminal G?

     

    1. At MSP, The the upper level is surrounded on three sides by Concourses A through G - Concourses E & F are in the center with Concourse D, C, A & B to the right and Concourse G to the left. 2. Concourses C & A are served by a tram; a connector between Concourses C & A connects to Concourse B by a short tunnel; and the Concourse Connector Bridge connects Concourses G & C.

     

    As soon as you leave your immediate gate area, there will be overhead signs pointing you towards the fastest way to get to each gate/concourse. The signs are really well thought-out, placed frequently, including at any major junction, and will reliably point you towards the fastest route. Your best route will probably be as follows: Turn right out of your B gate and head towards concourse C. Continue on concourse C to the concourse connector bridge. Turn left and walk across the concourse connector bridge. When you get to concourse G, either turn right or left, depending on your gate number. If you're at a really low-numbered G gate, it might make sense to instead take the tram which runs along concourse C to the C1 stop, and go via the main airport mall. You'd have the advantage of a tram, which is faster than moving walkways, for your journey along concourse C, but there aren't any moving walkways on the mall, as there are on the concourse connector. Other than that, it's just a matter of doing two sides of a rectangle vs. the other two sides.

     

  • 1hr 4mins ORD-IAD

    Im flying to Washington DC from Singapore via Hong Kong and O'Hare, arriving O'Hare at 11:20am and departing for Washington Dulles at 1:00pm. Do i have enough time to hop on my domestic flight?

     

    On arrival at ORD at Terminal 5 (for all international arrivals) you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag (the tag should indicate layover and final destination Airport Codes), then proceed up one level to the Airport Transit System (ATS) station and take the train to your connecting terminal. The ATS shuttle train runs every few minutes between Terminal 5's ATS level & the and domestic terminals 1, 2 & 3. The overhead screens on arrival will indicate which terminal, concourse & gate you will depart from (depending on which airline you use). T1 has gates B1-22, and C1-31; T2 has gates E1-E15 & F1-14; T3, with Concourses G, H, K & L has corresponding gates. Your time would suffice if (a) your incoming flight is on time and lines are 'normal'; (b) if your bags will be automatically transferred to your connecting gate (find out) - if not, you would have to re-check-in your bags with the airline heading to Dulles.

    On 12/23 I am flying from Denver to Dulles on UA0948 arriving @ 4:40. Need to transfer to Lufthansa flight LH0419 which departs Dulles at 5:40. Traveling companion needs wheelchair. Will we be able to make connection to Lufthansa flight?

     

    1. you need to contact United and tell them that you need a wheelchair out of your arriving gate to your connecting gate with Lufthansa (also make sure that United transfers bags to Lufthansa - not all Airlines do, if not, you would need to claim bags & re-check them in with Lufthansa.) United uses A, B & C gates, Lufthansa B gates. Under normal circumstances, on arrival you would follow signs 'TO BAGGAGE CLAIM / GROUND TRANSPORTATION'; domestic arrivals at A, B or C gates should follow the AeroTrain sign.

  • Connection from terminal F9 to B13

    We have only 50 minutes to make a connection from terminal F to terminal B, both are US Air flights within the US. My husband is also disabled and will need a wheelchair. Can we make it?

     

    While a special US Airways bus takes you from gate F14 to gate C16, with short walkover to B gates B1-16, you will need to contact US Airways regarding wheelchair assistance; Skycaps can also provide one or you can obtain one at the airline counter. To familiarize yourself with the terminals, open www.ifly.com/phl and click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down to the detailed text. 50 mins is very tight.

     

  • Transferring from AA to US Air

    is an hour and 20 minutes enough time to transfer from an American Eagle flight that arrives at the satellite terminal and one leaving on US Air at terminal 1

     

    On arrival at LAX at Terminal 4, take 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 stops will be T5 to T8, & around the bend to T1 - 5 stops or 12 mins. At T1 (gates 1 to 14), you need to go through security check before continuing to your connecting gate. BUT: if AA Eagle does not forward your checked bags to US Airways connection, you need to claim your bags at T4 and re-check them in at T1 before proceeding to security check.

  • Where is Pier H & M for easyjet flights

    I cannot see it on the map

     

    EasyJet most likely arrives departs/ from either gates H or M; Arrivals area 3 leads to departures area 3, which include connecting H & M gates.

    i am fly from Riga with airbaltic to Amsterdam and then from Amsterdam to Marseille with KLM operated by AirFrance. Will an hour be enought to transfer?

     

    One hour layover for domestic flights at AMS Airport should suffice. NOTE: Walking from the entry of B or C gates all the way over to the entry of G, H or M gates would take about 15 mins. Walking to the end of B gates takes 15 mins; for the C gates 7 mins; for the D gates 8 mins; for the E gates 1 min; for the F gates in the Center 2 mins; for the G gates 5 mins; and for the H & M gates 7 mins.

     

  • from canada and connecting at philadelph

    we are arriving from Canada at PHL on 8.25 am with US airways, and our flight connection to Orlondo at 10:00 am from terminal B. what are procedures(i.e customs immigration...), and will we have enough time to take our flight connection

     

    If your departing airport does not have customs clearance, you will arrive at Terminal A-West (TA-West) where you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag where indicated (the tag should indicate layover and final destination Airport Codes). Allow at least 35-45 minutes for this procedure. Otherwise you should arrive at Terminal A-East, where moving walkways get you Terminal B (gates B1 - B16 at post-security. You have enough time.

     

  • Int'l to Domestic Flight Bag Transfer

    Hello, I am arriving on an international flight from Dubai (Emirates) and have to go through immigration, pick up my bags, re-check the bags and transfer to a domestic Alaska airlines flight (Gate C/D). Would re-checking of the luggage take place at the South Satellite terminal or do I carry my bags to Gate C/D? Thank You.

     

    The South Satellite is the only one with immigration/ customs clearance facilities. If Emirates will transfer your bags to Alaska connecting flight (not all airlines do - check!) you would simply take the shuttle train to your connecting Alaska Airlines departure at North Satellite (or to either Concourses C or D, used now by SkyWest operating as Alaska Airlines). Check your ticket and overhead screens for your connecting gate. Note that Concourses & Satellites do not have a baggage check-in facility - meaning you would have to go to the Main terminal.
