  • From Terminal B to C going through customs
    Feb 21, 2014
    I will arrive from Munich at 7pm arriving to terminal B, and I have another flight at 9pm in terminal C. Will I make it!??!?!?! Please give me some help to make sure I will do it.


    On arrival at EWR, at Terminal B, 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. Then take the frequent Airtrain on the gate level of TB to TC, go through security check & on to your connecting gate. There are 3 gate areas: C1 (gates C70-99); C2 (gates C101-C115); & C3 (gates C120-139). Count on at least one hour gate-to-gate transfer.


    It will be impossible then? The air train takes me to where in Terminal C? What do you suggest? Thank you, Emilia


    No, 2 hours is doable for this transfer. The AirTrain station in Terminal C is outside the check-in area.


  • 1 hour 15 min layover arriving from Narita
    Feb 21, 2014
    Will one hour and 15 minutes be enough time to catch my connecting flight at IAH to San Antonio? Coming from Narita, Japan. Arriving at Terminal C, connecting flight at Terminal B. Please help mE!!!


    Yes your time should be sufficient. NOTE: International arrival at IAH come n at either Terminals D or E. From there they go through secure corridors, walk across the sky bridges to adjoining Federal Inspection Services (FIS), where they will claim baggage & clear U.S. Customs. If continuing your journey, re-check in your baggage at the recheck counters and proceed to the Arrivals Lobby, where an escalator down to the Inter-Terminal Train will take you to your connecting terminal B. Then follow signs to Concourse gates (check overhead screens for your flight & gate number). Note: Level 2 of TB has access to Concourse B gates at NE, NW, SE & SW: (a) Northeast (NE) concourse with gates B84-91; Northwest (NW) Concourse with gates B76-83; (b) Southeast (SE) Concourse with gates B17-20 & Southwest (SW) Concourse with gates B21-31.


  • YMM to CUN
    Feb 20, 2014
    We arrive on a united flight from fort mcmurray and connect to cancun. We have 1 hour before the connecting departs. we arrive at concourse A with united. Do we have to pickup our bags or are they transferred for us.? Will we have time to go through customs and security?


    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check them. Then go through security and take the underground train to Concourse B where your Cancun flight will depart. It will be very tight but if your flight from YMM is on-time you should be OK as there are very few if any international flights coming in that early in the morning.


  • Is 1 hr connection time enough?
    Feb 21, 2014
    United just switched my flights so my family of 4 has only 59 minutes to connect from an inbound flight from Greenville to outbound to Heathrow. Right now it appears those flights land at A4 and depart from C7. At 8:50pm, is 1 hour sufficient time to make that connection? Thank you!


    The gates flights use change from day-to-day, but you will likely arrive in concourse A and depart from Concourse C or D. Yes, if your first flight is on-time you should have enough time. The concourses are connected by the AeroTrain and mobile lounges inside security.


    Thanks so much! I appreciate your help


  • Terminal R to Termianl -4 and Baggage?
    Feb 20, 2014
    Hi, I am arrariving from Bangalore-London-LAX-San Diego with British Airways and domestic AA from LAX to San diego, Will there be Auto Transfer of Baggage to Terminal -4, pls. advice.


    LAX does not have a "Terminal R". British Airways flights arrive at the International Terminal (TBIT). After you clear US customs there is a big sign for connecting passengers directing you to where you can re-check your bags. Then you just have to walk to Terminal 4, which is the next terminal on the right, and go through security.


  • Connecting Virgin Atlantic to Delta
    Feb 20, 2014
    I am hoping to book a flight on delta but want to make sure we have enough time. Our flight from LHR arrives at 235 and we need to clear customs etc get our bags? and transfer to Terminal 5. Our Delta flight leaves at 545...is this enough time?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. To get between Terminal 2 and Terminal 5 you can either walk around the upper or lower level (counter-clockwise or with the flow of traffic) or take the shuttle bus that runs on the lower level.


  • Terminal 5 to Terminal 4
    Feb 20, 2014
    I have a international travel comming where i travel from Charlotte to JFK and then to India by Emirates . My Charlotte to JFK flight ( Jet Blue) reaches at 9.30 PM and my Emirates flight is at 11.00 PM . Is it doable ??


    Were the tickets bought together? It will be tough if you have to transfer bags yourself because they were not, but if the tickets were bought together it's doable. You transfer terminals using the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train.


  • Do I have enough time between flights
    Feb 23, 2014
    I'm scheduled to arrive in Chicago at 9:16am on UA3620 on May 25, 2014, and depart on an ANA flight NH011 at 10:50am. I believe the UA flight arrives at Terminal 2 and the ANA flight departs from Terminal 1. Is it possible to transit between terminals 1 and 2 without going through security again? If so, where is the connection between terminals?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. Terminal 2 and 1 are connected beyond security by a walkway that connects to T2 at the base of the concourse and to T1 near B3. There are plenty of signs.


    Thanks. Through another source I see there are two options, depending on which concourse my departing flight is leaving from. It seems there's a free shuttle to one concourse and the walkway you describe leads to the other.


    I wouldn't take the shuttle - it runs very infrequently and is slow. Also, the ANA flights always leave from Concourse B (the high-numbered end - B15 or B16)


    Thank you very much for your advice. It looks like I'll head straight for the walkway.


    I was just at o'hare yesterday and it appears ANA is using C10 as well.


  • Connection Time
    Feb 19, 2014
    I arrive in Seattle on Delta Flight 1929 at 12:12pm and I have a connecting Delta Flight 589 to Shanghai at 12:50. Is 38 minutes enough time for the connection? (Flight day is Sat, Feb 22nd)


    Yes, it should be if your first flight is on-time. All Delta flights in SEA operate in the S Satellite concourse.


  • TBIT to 7?
    Feb 19, 2014
    Arriving TBIT at 640am leaving thru terminal 7 at 12:30. Not worried about layover just process of getting from point A to point B. Any help?


    You have two options: exit TBIT and walk, to the right to T4 and continue on to T7, or take the LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', which runs every 12-15 mins. For terminal details open: www.ifly.com/lax, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • Do I need ti retrieve baggage
    Feb 19, 2014
    I am flying from Bremen to Minneapolis via Amsterdam. What terminal do I arrive in, do I need to retrieve my luggage, and what terminal do I depart from? All booked through delta.


    Amsterdam Airport has only one terminal; its airlines are not assigned. You are arriving there on a Schengen flight & depart for a non-Schengen flight (security check will be at the gate area). Your luggate will automatically be transferred. For Airport layout & trrafer, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ams, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • Travel time needed Connecting from Domestic flight to international
    Feb 19, 2014
    Can I make an international Delta flight to Rome at JFK in Terminal 4 from a domestic Delta flight 3831 landing at JFK with a layover of only one hour and 26 minutes? 26minutes?


    1 hr 26 minutes should be enough time. You will likely arrive in Terminal 2. Delta runs a shuttle bus inside security between T2 and T4.


  • stopover time
    Feb 17, 2014
    I'm flying on United Airlines from MCO to MEX, with a stopover time of 1h8m, will this be a sufficient amount of time? Thank you!


    Yes, all you will have to do is go from your arrival gate (which will be in Terminal C or E) and your departure gate, which will be in Terminal E. Terminals C and E are connected directly.


  • International-international connection
    Feb 17, 2014
    Transiting via MSP on 8 March, arriving from SJO (Costa Rica) and connecting to LHR (UK). We have just 1h30 between flights, both operated by Delta. Assuming no flight delays, is this likely to be do-able? I'm concerned there's a high chance of missing this connection, and MSP-LHR only operates once daily......


    Yes, you should have enough time. Everything on Delta is in one terminal and should be fairly close together. If you miss your connection due to a delay they may be able to get you to London through Detroit, New York, or Amsterdam.


  • Can I make this connection?
    Feb 17, 2014
    I arrive on UA4181 Express jet at 5:17 PM. and have to fly out of Kansas on Flight UA1243 at 5:47 on a Boeing 737. Only a 30 minute connection. Do you think this is enough time at this airport to make this connection.


    Both arrivals & departures of United are in Concourse C (C gates). You have enough time.
