  • Connection time 1.5h between Terminal 4 and 2
    Sep 20, 2013
    I'll be arriving at JFK Terminal 4 form EU and catching a domastic flight at Terminal 2. Connection time is 1.5h. I'm not US citizen. Is 1.5h is enogh?


    That's a very tight connection. I think there's a good chance you'll miss your connection, so be prepared for that.


  • Terminal A & C
    Sep 19, 2013
    I am arriving at terminal A & my husband is arriving at terminal C. We both have checked baggage. Where is the best place to meet to get a cab to the hotel?


    Just pick one of the baggage claims (preferably whichever one of you gets in later).

    There are 8 persons arriving on a Delta flight and 8 persons arrivng on a Air Tran flight at the same time. If I have a motorcoach picking up one location how should i arrange it? Which terminal is best to meet?


    There is no easy way for those passengers to get to a single point. The shuttle will have to pick each group up separately.


    While AirTran uses Central Terminal B (B gates), Delta uses both Terminals C & D. Route A free shuttle buses run every 10-15 minutes between the terminals. Best place to meet: all terminals have on the Arrivals level a transportation information booth. Airport contact: 718-533-3400.


  • from E to B84 in 30 min
    Sep 18, 2013
    what are the option to make my conncetion on time?


    Well, first hope your first flight is on-time, then take the TerminaLink Train and run. If your arrival into E is an international flight I really don't think you can make that connection. However, not many domestic flights arrive into E. How are you so sure you'll be arriving in E?


    it's a UAL flight from OKC sched in 12:?? - my wife is on the flight E is what they told her in OKC I can get the nbr would that help?


    UAL flight 1598 is showing early by :25 in to E15 UA4592 B84H on sched


    Yes, that would be one of the rare domestic flights that arrived into E. Since the flight arrived early she'll have over 40 minutes for her connection. Still tight, but doable.


  • lhr to phx on united
    Sep 19, 2013
    we arrive next tuesday on united 929 from london and need to get on united 1025 to phoenix. everyone at united seem confident we will be ok, but they would say that anyway. we have booked seats at the front of the econ plus cabin to minimis time leaving plan. we will have to have checked bags. any tips please?


    Yes, you should have enough time but you'll have to hurry. You'll re-check your bags with United in Terminal 5, then take the ATS train to Terminal 1 and go back through security. The checkpoint on the far left side of Terminal 1 (closest to Terminal 2) usually has the shortest lines.


    thanks Zap. I guess as soon as we see the state of immigration we will know if we have a chance.


  • from terminal B to C
    Sep 18, 2013
    we will arrive with LH1082 at 16,10 term B, next flt with UA1082 from C term at 17,45.do we need to pick up bags, go through customs, passport control, then go by Aor train to C term? and to go to departures to check in bags, custems, passport control ?


    You will indeed clear immigration, claim bags, and customs in Terminal B. However you will be able to re-check your bags in Terminal B and don't have to take them with you to C.


  • Gate n6
    Sep 18, 2013
    Where do I get dropped off for a flight leaving at gate n6


    If you need to check a bag, you get dropped off at the sign for your airline. if you don't need to check a bag, you can be dropped off anywhere at the main terminal.


  • Connection LH439 and LH758
    Sep 18, 2013
    Hello, I am planning to travel from Dallas (DFW) to Chennai (MAA) by Lufthansa. But am worried about the layover of just 1 hour at FRA between LH439 and LH758. Is 1 hour enough to make it to the connecting flight? I cannot walk fast due to a medical condition. Will the gates be situated far apart? Please advice.


    Please help.. this is urgent


    You should have enough time. If you're worried about your ability to walk you can ask Lufthansa for assistance.


    U.S. Arrivals at FRA are being processed at Area A of Terminal 1 where they go through passport control only. Lufthansa uses both A & B gates. If you need to transfer between B gates (T1B) and A gates (T1A) use the SkyLine train inside security, which leaves every 2-3 mins. FRA is easy to navigate with international signs to guide you.


  • Enough time for transfer and how?
    Sep 18, 2013
    Arriving from Boston to jfk on AA256 at 19:35. Need to catch the Emirates flight to Singapore EK 202 departing at 23:00 from terminal 4 jfk. What's the fastest way to do this? Can AA help with checking in my bags through to Singapore from Boston so that I do not have to collect/check-in my bags again at jfk? I do not have AA on my Emirates itinerary. Thanks!


    You can ask the AA desk in Boston but they aren't required to check the bags through to Emirates for you. The only way to do your connection is to take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train from T8 to T4 at JFK. If your bags aren't checked through to Singapore, you'll have to claim them first. However, you have a ton of time so you'll be OK unless your flight from Boston is heavily delayed.


    Thank you!

  • Which Terminals and How Much Time to Recheck Bags
    Sep 18, 2013
    We will be flying into FCO from Frankfurt on Luftansa and then checking in with We will be flying into FCO from Frankfurt on Luftansa and then rechecking our bags for Alitalia flight to Venice. Which Terminals will we be flying in and out of and how much time should we allow for all of this?


    You will arrive in the Schengen side of Terminal 3 and depart from Terminal 1. I would allow 2 hours since you will have to deal with baggage transfer yourselves.


  • TBIT
    Sep 18, 2013
    On 9/25 I must go from T1 to Air France for Paris. Will Air France still be at T2 or will it be at TBIT?


    If your Air France flight is on the A380 it will be from the TBIT otherwise it will be in T2. If you post your Air France flight number I can help you.


  • IAD to IAH To SAT
    Sep 17, 2013
    I am coming in on united from IAD going to SAT on United have an hour layover will I have enough time


    At IAH, United uses Terminals A, B, C for domestic flights. Today's listing of UA's arrival from IAD is at gate C18; and departure from gate E16. The above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, connects terminals A, B, C inside security - follow signs. You have enough time.


    Both of your flights will likely be in Terminal C. I don't know where tusep is getting his info as United has numerous IAD-IAH and IAH-SAT flights. If you do have to change terminals, the TerminaLink train does connect all terminals inside security.


  • From A to B check in .
    Sep 19, 2013
    I travel form adam to newark liberty and I arrived in Terminal B and I have to go to A for the next flight newark to atlanta hart . what i have to do , and can I re check in in the same terminal if I arrived so in B, and after that I can take the airtrain to terminal A correct ? already thnx for you help!!


    Where's "Adam"? If your tickets were bought on the same reservation and your bags are checked though to Atlanta you can re-check your bags in B, otherwise you will have to bring them to A. Yes, the best way for you to go between terminals will be the AirTrain.


    Thnx zap , i m sorry adam is Netherlands . so if i arrived i have to re-check-in Always my bays right ? and which route do I have to walk ,(which signs I have to follow) first to the immigration then to the baggaue claim and then re check in ? its my first flight to usa :)


    The baggage re-check will be right after you exit customs. The signs will just be for Terminal A. What airlines are your flight on? United flights from Amsterdam will arrive in C and United flights to Atlanta can depart from C or A. Delta flights from Amsterdam arrive in B and Delta flights to Atlanta depart from B.


    I fly whit both flight whit united airlines , but on my information paper it says that I arrived on Newark lib intl on terminal B ?? and Depart from terminal A


    zap these are the flight s UA965 , UA4141


    That information is wrong or outdated. You will likely arrive in C and depart from C or A (United flights from Newark to Atlanta can use both).


    oke clear strange , no change to find out now where I depart from that to early for It I think . ? or can I check it somewhere ? I have 3 hours to do that is that enough ?


    Yes, 3 hours should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will know the exact gates on the day of your flight. 4141 will probably depart from A (pretty much all Embraer E145 flights use A).
