  • 46 minutes connection to Beijing
    Apr 8, 2013

    I have a connecting flight on July5 from Houston to Beijing through IAD, The flight IAH- IAD UA321 arriving at 11:34am , and connect to UA897 to Beijing departing at 12:20pm, only 46 minutes layover. Is it enough time for me and the baggage? (checking baggage through to Beijing). Thank you.

     

    If your first flight is on-time then it should be enough time. You will both arrive and depart in the C/D concourse so you can just walk between your gates.

     

  • Getting between T2 & T3 - short layover

    Hi. Flying in to T2 at 7:26 pm on United Express, and out of T3 at 8:20 pm on American. Doable?

     

    Yes, T2 and T3 are connected beyond security so you can just walk. Hurry, especially if you have a gate-check bag and have to wait for it.

    WHICH TERMINAL DOES UNITED USE. I FLY IN ON UA1420 AND NED TO CONNCT TO UA205. Will I have enough time to connect. I have difficulty walking?

     

    United Airlines use the Jeppesen Terminal's Concourse B, where you arrive and depart on the same level. The Concourse has gates B15 - B37 and B38 - B60 with extensions to both gates B80 - B95 and B59 - B79. The overhead screens on arrival will indicate flight & gate number.

    I am arriving at Terminal 4. Then does Terminal 4 has its own us customs in Terminal 4 building? and Terminal 1 has its own us customs in Terminal 1 building ? OR there is only one us customs is in JFK ? and Is baggage claim place for Terminal 4 and Terminal 1 different location?

     

    sorry, I meant if immigration is at each of Terminals in JFK.

     

    Every terminal at JFK, except JetBlue's Terminal 5 and Delta Connection's Terminal 2 has its own immigration facilities.

    I'm arriving at IAH from MCO I have a connection to GDL do I go straight to the terminal or is there something I need to do

     

    Go straight to the gate for your GDL flight. Take the TerminaLink train if necessary.

     

    Thanks Alot :)

    We are arriving from Glasgow and then travelling on to Toronto. Can we buy duty-free while we are at Newark?

     

    Yes, as you will be holding an international boarding pass (EWR-YYZ)

    Hello, I am arriving with a friend from Italy (Milan, MXP) at 1.30 p.m. on Monday. We have the connection at 2.59 p.m. to SFO. All flights with United Airlines, can we make it? How long does it take for security controls generally? Checked bags are managed by the UA? Thanks a lot!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Immigration will probably take 30 minutes to an hour though so there's no time to waste. Yes, you will re-check your bags with United when you exit customs. If you miss your connection United has many more EWR-SFO flights so there's no need to worry too much.

     

  • Transfer Hawaiian to SWA- no checked bag
    Apr 15, 2013

    Monday 6/17-Arrive on HAW at LAS 7:20am- depart SWA at 9:00am- no checked bags- 4 people- is this enough time to make the connection? Please advise shortest route. Thanks

     

    That should be enough time. There's a shuttle that runs on the curbside from T3 to T1. That would probably be the shortest route. It might be possible to take the D-satellite train from T3-E to the D-satellite, then the train from the D-satellite to T1 too, but that would be a pretty non-standard route and I'm not sure it's possible. Check in for your Southwest flight before you leave Hawaii.

     

    At LAS, currently Hawaiian uses the Satellite Concourse with gates D1-59, which is located south, between Terminals 1 & 3, and served by the D tram & C tram, arriving there one level below the gates (in the center - take escalator down). Southwest is presently in Concourse C (gates C1-25) of Terminal 1. Without baggage transfer you should be able to make it easily in that time.

     

    Monday morning is a very busy time to to leave SWA, can be a very long security line. Can be very long waits but as long as all goes smooth and with no bags to transfer you should just make it. And yes you must get a shuttle from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1 and then get to the C gates, which can be got to by going to level 1 of terminal 1 just go straight towards the Starbucks on level 1 then head around it out the doors right behind it and cross the drop off street and when you enter the other building turn left and head up the escalators and you are there.

     

  • Getting from Internat'l to domestic flt

    I will arrive from Vancouver 5:41 pm Westjet and transfer to United flight leaving 7:40 pm. Will I have enough time to make this flight and clear all hurdles?

     

    There aren't many hurdles as you will pre-clear US Immigration in Vancouver. Check where your United flight will depart from - if it's a United Express flight leaving from an E or F gate, then you can easily walk from T3 where Westjet will arrive to T2. If you're leaving from B or C, then you can either walk all the way from T3 to T1 inside the secure area or you can take the ATS train, but if you do that, you will have to go back through security in T1. If you have checked baggage Westjet will not transfer to United, so you'll have to claim in T3 and take it on the ATS to T1 and re-check it. Regardless of what you have to do, I think you have enough time.

    I will be arriving in Houston at 8:20am at gate c and departing to Guadalajara at 8:55am at gate E do I have enough time or should I be worried?

     

    That's a pretty tight connection - but those gate areas are fairly close to each other. If your first flight is on time you should be able to make it. Also, United has more IAH-GDL flights later in the day if you miss that one. Also, It appears most United IAH-GDL flights leave from B, not E, in which case you would have to take the TerminaLink train.

     

    About how long will it take me to walk from C to E?

     

    It depends where in C to where in E, but probably 10-20 minutes.

     

  • AMS-LAX-LAS: what to do with baggage?
    Apr 6, 2013

    Quick question and probably an easy one for you guys: I will be arriving from Amsterdam with KLM and connecting to Las Vegas with Delta (one ticket). I expect to arrive at T2 and will depart from T5. I know that I will have to pick up my baggage and take it through customs myself, but I'm not sure about the next part. Will I have to carry my suitcase to T5 myself, or can I leave it in T2? Thanks!

     

    There should be a re-check in T2.

     

  • 50mins connection to NRT

    I'm frlying thru IAD. (UAX to UA intenational) first tie @ IAD for such a transfer. based on the thread here, it seems like my UAX will go into A and my departure would be C. is there an additional security check point toward international departure gates on this transfer? (some airports do have them)

     

    There is no additional security check. Some UAX flights do use C (mainly larger regional jets).

     

    Thx ZAP, as my screen name says, i'm flying from JAX and UAX is ERJ-145 with 2-1 array. so.. the chance is my flight will go into those smaller carrier section in A. my current connecting flight to NRT is the last flight of the day for UA. I wish this 50 mins would be enough.
