  • Traveling from St. Marteen to Boston via Miami connection
    Jul 8, 2013
    I will be traveling at the end of July 2013 from St. Marteen stopping in MIA for my connecting flight to Boston. This is my first time traveling via MIA, I have 2 hrs from my arrival Gate D8 to my departure flight Gate D33 and I am a bit worried that I may miss my connecting flight. After I have passed through Passport control, how do I make my way through the airport to get to my connecting flight on time? I won't have any baggage to claim, I will only have a carry-on luggage. Thank you.


    All you have to do is go back to the departures level and go back through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time assuming immigration isn't a total mess (it has been pretty bad in MIA lately).


    Thank you, I will keep my fingers crossed


  • I have 47 minutes in between connections at IAH - enough time?
    Jul 8, 2013
    I will be arriving on United from OMA into IAH and have 47 minutes till a connecting flight goes to CRP (also on United). I have heard that IAH just expanded the terminals and there was some concern if I had to run from A to E terminals. Is 47 minutes enough time to make two in the continental US connections?


    It appears that most of the United Express flights from OMA to IAH arrive in Terminal B (the mainline flight can arrive in C or E, usually C). All the IAH-CRP flights operate from A or B. So there's a good chance both your flights will be in B. If your first flight is on-time you should have enough time regardless though.

    arriving IAH on UA4299 2:30pm departing IAH on Lufthaansa 8867 at 4:10pm.what is the distance I will have to go and can I order a motorized cart?


    Your arriving flight will likely be in Terminal B and your departing flight will be in Terminal D if it is truly on Lufthansa (however, I cannot flind a Lufthansa flight 8867 from Houston and the number 8867 indicates that it is a codeshare flight operated by United). If you need assistance, request wheelchair assistance from United. Terminals B and D are connected by the TerminaLink train.


    Thank you so much as this will be a big help - especially the info that it will most likely be a United flight not a Lufthansa flight. I would have been looking for the wrong thing.. Thanks again


    Where is your second flight to?


    My second flight is from Franfurt to Prague. Thanks for helping


    So you're flying Somewhere-IAH-FRA-PRG?


  • Delta to Spirit Airlines connection?
    Jul 8, 2013
    I am flying into DTW on a delta flight and I have a connection flight with spirit airlines that is 45 minutes after I land. Assuming my flights are on time, will I make it even though I'll have to switch terminals?


    No, you will not. You have to take a bus between terminals and since not many people connect between terminals at DTW, the bus doesn't run very frequently. You might have a slight chance of making it if you have no checked bags and your Delta flight gets in early. You shouldn't have booked that connection.

    My family of four will be flying into CLT from Turks and Caicos. We have a 1hr. 33 minute layover on a Sunday evening. Will that give us time to collect luggage, clear customs, go through security and board on time? Thinking of just packing carryon luggage to avoid the collection step. Thanks!


    You should have enough time, but of course just packing carry-ons will help.


  • Delta flights terminals 2 and 4
    Jul 7, 2013
    We have a 55 minute connection between 2 Delta flights, arriving at Terminal 2 then departing from Terminal 4. I have heard the Delta shuttle bus line is sometimes long enough to fill 3 buses. Is there realistically a chance of making the connecting flight and are buses busier at certain times of day?


    The buses are probably busiest in the early afternoon, before the transatlantic flights leave in late afternoon. It's possible to make the connection, but as you say, it might be tough, especially with how delay-prone JFK is.


  • T8 to TB
    Jul 7, 2013
    I have 1:20 between flights arriving United Express in T8 to Lufthansa in TB. What's the best way to go between, and must I go through security again? Thanks.


    At LAX, you have 2 options to get from T8 to TBIT (TB) - both of them, however, still require you to go through security check at TBIT before proceeding to your gate. (a) walk: a short walkway is between T8 & T7. At T7 take escalator down to tunnel connecting to T6, T5, T4; take escalator up and walk left around the bend to TBIT. (b) take bus: 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. Next stops: After T8 but goes to the other side to T1, T2, T3 & TBIT: 4 stops or 10 mins. Hurry!

    I will be arriving on United airlines from Edmonton,Alberta then connect to Fort Lauderdale on United as well. Will I have to change terminals and if so do I catch a tram or can I walk


    As Edmonton Airport has U.S. Customs clearance, you are considered a domestic arrival at IAH. United is the only airline using Terminals A, B, C & E. On arrival, simply look at overhead screens to find your connecting flight & gate number; then look for the LinkTrain sign which starts at Terminal A and runs inside security taking a total of 30 mins to Terminal D/E station. (gate numbers correspond to Terminal (i.e., A10).


    You will likely both arrive and depart in Terminal C.


    thanks, much appreciated

    My husband arrives international from Australia and I land and T8 2 hours later. What is the best way for him to come to find me?


    Probably in the United baggage claim in Terminal 7 - however, it's not a very nice place to wait. He'll probably want to take his time getting over there.


  • security between T1 and T2?
    Jul 6, 2013
    I'm finding conflicting info on whether or not I will need to go through security (on United connecting flights) between T1 and T2. As it will be the Christmas rush, I'm wanting to be sure 45 minutes will be enough time. Thanks for any advice as I haven't flown through ORD before.


    You can easily walk between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 without going through security - just follow the signs in T1 pointing to the E and F gates. 45 minutes should be OK if your first flight is on-time.


  • Transfer Time Terninal 1 LHR
    Jul 6, 2013
    Can anyone tell me if one has to go through security if arriving on LH902 from FRA to LHR and Departing on UA900 (usually Gate 32) Terminal 1 to San Francisco


  • LAS - ORD - LHR (Friday 4th October - arriving at ORD 4.40pm)
    Jul 6, 2013
    I will be arriving at ORD from Las Vegas on the 4th at 4.40pm, the connecting flight to London leaves at 6.30pm, will this give me enough time? Any help and tips will be greatly appreciated.


    Meant to add, flying United Airlines on all legs


    Yes, that's plenty of time. Both of your flights will be in Terminal 1 and you don't have to go through any security or immigration in Chicago. If you need to go between concourses B and C, there's a tunnel that connects them.


  • Alitalia/Delta connection in Amsterdam with only 1 hr 35 min
    Jul 5, 2013
    I am flying from Florence on Alitalia to Amsterdam and then on to NYC/USA on Delta with only 1 hr 35 min between flights. Is that enough time? What do I have to do before going to my departing gate?


    Yes, that should be enough time. All you will have to do is go to the gate for your Delta flight where you will go through security.


  • How does Passport control/bagage claim work
    Jul 5, 2013
    How does Passport control/bagage claim work with Int'l flights arriving in Concourse C? Do I have to leave Con C to reenter the USA via customs with my Claimed bag or is that process all contained within Con C?


    Usually everything is done within C - sometimes you are transported via mobile lounge to the IAB though - http://www.metwashairports.com/dulles/884.htm
