  • E6 to A21- 1 hour 10 min?
    Apr 12, 2013
    2
    I arrive on an international flight 6:20 PM @ gate E6 with only 1hour 15 min to clear customs and get to terminal A21. I am debating whether to fly with only a carry on or to check a bag in. How much more time does claim and rechecking your bag add? Would love to bring home some rum but not at the risk of missing my flight.

     

    Not checking a bag will certainly make things faster. However, if you're going somewhere where delta has a lot of flights you it might be worth risking. Also, while your international flight will arrive at E, there's no way to know your next flight will depart from A unless your flight is today or tomorrow (and even then it may change).

     

    Thanks ZAP. Yes I'm not flying back until next week but I have looked at yesterday, today and tomorrows gates and they have been consistent. I flying from Santo Domingo to Los Angeles there is one more flight to LA after mine. How long on average these days does it take to clear customs mid week? Has the sequester made any difference?

    Can we make it from concourse C to Concourse D in 10 minutes? Of so how?

     

    Hardly - Between gates C31 & C1 is the escalator to the Plane Train, take train arriving between gates D22 & D16.

     

    It will probably take about 10 minutes to get between the two gates. Do you really have a connection that tight?

    I am arriving at DEN on united and flying out 50 minutes later on united. Will I avoid security at this time and will I already be in the right concourse which is B. (not much time)

     

    Yes, if both flights are domestic you won't have to go through any security in DEN - just walk to your next gate.

     

  • T8 to T7 in 1 hour 12 minutes

    Hi. I will be flying on a Skywest Airlines dba United Express flight into LAX. I am pretty sure it will be arriving into T8. Will I have enough time to catch another flight from T7 if I have 1 hour, 12 minutes? I am new to LAX. This will be on a Saturday morning at 7:30am. Thank you very much for your time.

     

    Yes, that will be plenty of time. T8 and T7 are directly connected and you won't have to go back through security.

     

    Oh awesome! Thanks so much for answering. :) I appreciate it.

    We have international flight changing planes in BOS. We arrive in BOS Terminal B at 4:50PM and are departing BOS Terminal E at 6:15PM. Will we have enough time to comfortable make connection we are traveling with small kids? Thank you

     

    That would really be pushing it in my opinion. It's not an easy transfer and you'll have to go through security again in TE.

    I have 1 hr. and 20 min. to get from terminal A to terminal C for a flight to Israel. I know I have to go through security again. Is this enough time?

     

    There is a secure-side A to C shuttle that you can take. If your first flight is on-time you will have enough time.

    I am arriving at Dulles airport on USAIRWAYS and have a 1 hr connection to Ethiopian airlines to Addis. Is this enough time for me and my luggage to make the connection?

     

    That's very close. You will arrive at the Z-gates and depart from B and have to take the train. If your first flight is on time you will have enough time though.

     

  • 40 minute connection time

    I fly in on SkyWest and need to make a Delta connection in 40 minutes. Looks like SkyWest comes in to terminal 8 and Delta is in terminal 5. Is it a quick hike?

     

    SkyWest is not a marketing carrier. If your SkyWest flight is a Delta Connection flight both flights will be in Terminal 5. Only if your SkyWest flight is a United Express flight will you have to go from Terminal 8. If you let me know your flight number and where you're flying to LAX from I can let you know.

    I am flying from Boston on UUA1455 Friday 26 April, arriving at 9:07pm and only have 1hr layover to catch my flight to Brazil on UA861 10:10pm. Is that going to be enough time to my connecting flight? Do I have to take the train?

     

    You will both arrive and depart from concourse C/D - you will not have to take the train. If your first flight is on-time you will have enough time.

     

  • 1hr 48min layover from Mexico

    I am flying from Cancun on UA 1133 arriving at 8:12pm and only have 1hr 48min layover to catch my flight to Buffalo on UA 5705. Is that going to be enough time for me to get through customs, security, etc and make it to my connecting flight? I was told by expedia it was enough but I didn't have a very good experience with IAD last time I flew through there...

     

    It should be enough time - Immigration won't be that busy that late in the evening.

    We're flying to Rome from LAS on BA. First leg lands at Terminal 3 and second leg leaves from Terminal 5. We have 1:35 between flights. Do we have to go through security again and will there be enough time?

     

    You will have enough time but you will have to hurry. You take the ATS train one stop to T5 and then go through security as the ATS runs outside security. Your first flight will be operated by American.

    I will need to go from gate C25 to B84N. I will have to take the TerminaLink train. Is the station for the TerminaLink close to gate C25. My husband and I both walk with canes. Our connection time is about 55 minutes. Will we make it to gate B84C in time?

     

    C25 is fairly close to the TerminaLink station. However, unless you are traveling today or tomorrow and looked on united.com , you don't know specific what gate your flight will come in to (and even then it can still change). Regardless you should have enough time. If you are really worried about being able to walk that far you can call United and ask for wheelchair assistance.

    How far away gate F16 to B15? Is terminal F attached?

     

    US Airways runs a shuttle from gate C16 to terminal F. You need to take that. http://www.phl.org/passengerinfo/Pages/shuttle.aspx

    Will 1 hour be enough time to change from domestic Delta flight to an international Delta flight at DTW ariport?

     

    If your first flight is on time, yes, that should be enough time. Connections on Delta in DTW are fairly easy.

     

  • arrive from TPA- Fly to Purto Vallarta

    Is a 1 hour lay-over enough to fly in from Tampa and fly out on International Mexico flight... What gates does United use for these flights

     

    Your flight from Tampa would likely arrive in C and your Puerto Vallarta flight would depart from C or E, which are all connected beyond security. If your first flight is on-time, an hour would be enough.
