    I fly in on KLM from US, connecting flight to Istanbul on KLM. Will I have to change terminals? Also if I buy food or shop, do I have to exchange funds to Euro's or can I use US currency?


    AMS has one large terminal. As a 'non-Schengen' (foreign) arrival at AMS you need to go through non-Schengen passport control; all passengers need to poceed to the baggage belts in the baggage hall (ground level), claim their bags & go through Customs for security check. If you have nothing to declare proceed to the arrivals hall through the green passageway. In the Arrivals Hall are several catering establishments. (I presume that shops/restaurants accept US currency). The departures level has restaurants & shops in the secured areas and leads to Concourses B-C, D, E, F, G, & H/M (C & B gates are connected, H & M gates are on opposite side of the concourse.)

  • Transfers between Concourse B and C/D
    May 28, 2013
    I'm transferring between a domestic UA flight (Concourse C/D) and an ANA international flight (Concourse B). I'll have 1 hour when leaving the US, and 1hr 50 min when entering the US. What's the best way to transfer and will I have enough time? On re-entry, I assume I clear customs at Concourse C? Thanks!


    1. Only international arrivals need to go through customs clearance. 2. As UA & ANA belong to the Star Alliance - your bags will be transferred automatically. 3. to get from Concourse C to Concourse B, take the AeroTrain serving gates C1-30 and B35-79 - follow signs.


  • Newark to Raleigh Durham
    May 29, 2013
    I will be arriving Newark on Aug 8th at 5:10am by United AIrlines at Termical C. I have a connecting flight to Raleigh-Durham at 7am on the same day again operated by United Airlines from Terminal A. Will 2 hrs of connecting time be sufficient for all my immigration procedures? Do I need to recheck my luggage even if my connectiing flight is from the same airlines? How long does it take for travelling from Terminal C to Terminal A? Are they well connected? What if I miss my flight, will United Airlines take care of it?


    At EWR, international flights by United are in Terminal C, while some domestic UA flights are also in Terminal A. As an international arrival, you need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance & re-check-in your bag where indicated. Your bags will then be transferred to your domestic connecting flight. Thereafter, hop on the Airtrain which makes its continuous loop to Terminal A, where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. 2 hrs will suffice.


    Immigration shouldn't be very busy that early in the morning. You will have to claim your bag in immigration and re-check it with United when you exit customs. You can take the Airtrain from C to A or go back through security in C and take the shuttle to A (taking the airtrain is probably faster). Yes, if you miss your connection you will be rebooked on the next flight to your destination with available seats. United has 6 more flights after yours from Newark to RDU.


    A quick question: Can a guitar be carried as a cabin luggage?? or should it be checked in? If it is checked in, would it break during the journey??


    Here is United's policy on musical instruments: http://www.united.com/web/en-US/content/travel/baggage/fragile.aspx


  • Transfer from domestic to international
    May 28, 2013
    Wed. 5/29 I am scheduled to arrive IAD at 4:10 PM on United 5900 from Knoxville, TN. I will have 6 students in tow and need to transfer to Austrian Air 94 to Vienna for a 5:35 PM departure. In all my years of travel, I have somehow managed to miss transferring at IAD. I am open to suggestions about how best to proceed (and maybe how fast to run). Thanks.


    You can simply walk between your gates as you will arrive in A and depart from B. If your first flight is on-time you'll have enough time.


    Thanks, ZAP!


  • What Gate Does Air Berlin Fly Out Of
    May 27, 2013
    Friend flies into T3 H10 and has less that 2 hours to make Air Berlin Flight 7421 connection. Today I saw his flight into O'hare was 38 minutes and Air Berlin flight left 10 minutes early. What terminal and what gate doe AB 7421 usually fiy out of.


    Air Berlin flights depart from Terminal 3. The gate is probably one of the gates at the end of the K concourse but I don't know for sure what gate they use. They don't list it on their website.


  • Terminal S to International Terminal
    May 27, 2013
    My flight from West Palm Beach, FL gets into Terminal S at 4:50 pm and I leave for Madird from the international terminal at 5:50 - how do I get to the international terminal? how long should it take? will I have to go through customs etc. again?


    You will not arrive in "Terminal S" you will arrive in one of several domestic concourses. You will then just take the plane train from your arrival concourse to Concourse F for your international flight. There will be no customs or security in the international terminal. You'll go through immigration in Madrid.

    I arrive DFW on Qantas QF7 to terminal D at 13.45, will I have enough time to retrieve bags, clear customs etc. and get to terminal A in time for my connection to Memphis on QF4783 departing at 16.20?


    On arrival at DFW, and after going through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and re-checking-in bag, tak the Skylink train (at post-security)to your connecting flight; or simply use the walkway to Terminal A. You ave plenty of time. HOWEVER, make sure that your connecting flight with Qantas is indeed at Terminal A (check on arrival overhead screens!)


    QF4783 is actually American Airlines flight 676.


    Many thanks to " momay " and " ZAP " for your reply and advice re. transfer at DFW Colin


  • Lufthansa US to FRA to BCN with cat
    May 27, 2013
    Hi - (1) where do we get the BCN flight in Frankfurt, is it near our US (From Sea-Tac) arrival gate? (2) do we go through passport or customs at FRA or in BCN or both? (3) Will it take us longer to transfer or go through passport or customs because we have a cat as carry-on? Thanks!


    At FRA, U.S. Arrivals (non-Schengen /foreign)are being processed at Area A where they go through passport control only; (US departures use the Z gates, which are one flight above A gates). If you need to transfer inside Terminal 1, between B gates (T1B)and A gates (T1A)- Lufthansa uses both - you can use either the transfer tunnel outside security, or the SkyLine train inside security, which leaves every 2-3 mins. Regarding cat - that depends on how German security is handling this - cannot advise you on that. On arrival at Barcelona, you are considered a 'Schengen' (domestic) flight.

    The 650-foot bridge between TC & TD is under construction - no completion time has yet been announced, & so far no indication for moving walkways.


  • Arrival Term.l A - Departure Term F
    May 31, 2013
    Hello everybody i will arrive on PHL Terminal A at June, 15th 13.55 and have to get my next flight to Cleveland on Terminal F at 15.45. Is this doable? What is the best way to get from A to F. Should i take this shuttle bus? Thank you very much!


    You have enough time. Note, however, that if you are an international arrival at PHL, you will arrive at Terminal A-West where you go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance and recheck-in your bags, before proceeding to Terminal F. Transfer from Terminal A-East/A-West via US Airways shuttle bus is at gate A1 to Terminal F, gate F14.


    Is it sure that i have to re-check my baggage? My flight to PHL is US Airways and my connecting flight (to Cleveland) is also US Airways. Should the baggage not be transferred to my connecting flight? Maybe one more question to my flight back. I will arrive at PHL Terminal C and my connecting flight is departing from Terminal A in PHL. But i do onlöy have 1:00 hour time get my connecting flight at Terminal A. I think this will be too short. How is the baggage handled in this case (flight back)? Thank you.


    When you arrive in the US from overseas you always have to claim your baggage, then go through customs and re-check. You haven't said if your first flight is international or not. If it's not then you don't have to worry about re-checking.


    Sorry, i forgot to mention that i come in with an internatiomal flight from Germany. But on my way back i will arrive at PHL Terminal C coming from CLE and then depart from Terminal A back to Germany. That means that i do not have to recheck-in my luggage in PHL. So i think one hour should be enough time to get from Terminal C to A, isn't it?


    Yes, on your way TO Germany you won't have to do anything with your baggage. An hour should be enough time.


  • Knee replaced how to go fr term E to B
    May 26, 2013
    My mom is flying into term E in the AM and needs to get to term gate B81. 2.5 hr layover. Top it off, she doesn't read English well. Pls recommend best way to make the transfer.


    On arrival at Terminal E of IAH, your mother can take the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station & connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security (allow for 30 mins transfer from A to D). Internationally recognized signs will guide her. However, you could arrange for wheelchair pickup at arrival gate by contacting her airline. If your mother is an international arrival, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iah and open 'Terminal Map' under 'Maps & Directions' for further details.


  • Change from Terminal A to D
    May 25, 2013
    I am arriving on UA from memphis and need to transfer to Turkish Airline at Terminal D. How fast can I transfer from A to D. I have 1 hr 50 min between flight. Please advise


    You take the TerminaLink train which is inside security. It should not take more than 25 minutes.


  • 1 hour connection time
    May 25, 2013
    I will be arriving into Amsterdam from the US on Monday and have one hour to connect to an Air Baltic flight. Do you know the best way to get through customs and where the Air Baltic flights leave from?


    Open http://www.schiphol.nl/Travellers/FlightInformation/Timetable/TimetableOverview.htm and complete the search area of the Schiphol flight time table. On arrival you need to go through non-Schengen passport control, proceed to baggage belts on round level, & go through customs. Note: Arrivals 1 & 2 areas lead up to Departures 1 & 2; and Arrivals 3 & 4 lead up to Departure 3. Departures 1 uses the B, C & D gates; Departures 2 uses the E gates; Departure 3 uses F, G, H & M gates. (Arrivals 1 & 2 and Arrivals 3 & 4 are on opposite sides of the center.) One hour is tight, but doable.
