Finally pl answer what checkings i have to clear at Chcago and Delhi. Please reply. Thanking you. gopalakrishna

     

    If you bought your tickets on one reservation then American will transfer your bag to Air India. Make sure the bag is checked through to HYD when you check it in Memphis. You just have to get yourself from T3 to T5 in ORD via the ATS train, make sure you have your Air India boarding pass, and then go through security. On the return to Chicago, you will go through US immigration in Terminal 5, then re-check the bag with American and then take the ATS train to T3 and go through security there.

     

  • Tight connection to BZE/Belize flight
    Feb 27, 2013
    2
    I'm traveling San Jose, CA to Belize City, all on AA. The connection is 50 minutes, arriving Term A and departing Term D. How difficult is the connection and which is quickest way to get to the gate?

     

    At DFW, the free Skylink train runs inside the post-security area of each of the five terminals, starting at the International Terminal D at gates D2, D20, D25 & D34, and connecting to the other terminals by two Skylink stations each (close to the left and right end). It runs every 2 mins and takes about 5 minutes of transfer time on average. At TA it stops between A13-16 & A29-34.

     

    Take the Skylink train, it should take no more than 15-20 minutes to get between your gates.

     

  • 30 minutes to get to next flight
    Feb 26, 2013

    Hi. I just realized we have 30 minutes to get to the next gate on our flight from Chicago (ORD) to Panama City (PTY) on 3-30-13 with a layover in Houston. Can anyone give me an idea if this is even possible? I booked thru Travelocity, so I assumed this was doable otherwise I would not have been able to book this flight. Does any one know the gate numbers that my flight might arrive at and depart from? Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated! Andy...

     

    I'm assuming both of your flights are on United. Your arrival will be into terminal C or E and your Panama City flight will probably depart from E.

     

  • southwest to vegas

    i will be flying us air from asheville to charlotte then fling southwest to vegas. when i arrive from asheville to charlotte can i go straight to the southwest boarding gate (ill already have my boarding pass) or do i need to go through security again to have my carry on rechecked before heading to southwest gates? Will southwest gates be where airtran currently is?

     

    Yes, all gates at CLT are connected beyond security so you can just go to the gate. The Southwest gates will probably be where the Airtran ones are now, but there's no guarantee of that.

     

    SWA gates will be A4 & A6 (where Airtran is now). You will probably arrive in the E concourse on USAir. If you check a bag plane side with USAir they will bring it up. But if you check one curbside or at the ticket counter you will have to go outside of security to baggage claim and get it and then go to SWA ticket counter and check it and then go back through security. Check both carriers carry restrictions. SWA will not bring a planeside checked bag back up on your return.

     

  • Gates and Terminal info please

    Can anyone tell me which terminal my KLM flight from Edinburgh on 4/3/13 will stop at, as I have to connect to the KLM Cape Town Flight and I need to know which terminal and gate number it would leave from. Appreciate your help. Thank you.

     

    AMS has one passenger terminal. On Arrival at AMS: All passengers need to go through Passport Control - follow the signs for 'Baggage Hall' & 'Arrivals Hall'--if applicable; then go through passport control and poceed to the baggage belts in the baggage hall (ground level). Claim your bags & go through Customs for security check and re-check-in your bag. 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.) Gate-to-Gate transfers: B & C gates are at the very right end of the bow-shaped terminal; north of it are the C gates arranged in a Y-shape; around the bend are the E gates, followed in the center by the F gates; right thereafter is entry to the G, H & M gates (G gates are to the right, H & M gates to the left). Walking time from the entry of B or C gates all the way over to the entry of G, H or M gates would take about 15 mins.

     

  • Time Terminal S (Delta) to TI/Customs
    Feb 26, 2013

    We are a senior couple. Have 48 min to make it from TS (Delta) to TI (Delta). Do we have time, including customs, to make a Paris flight?

     

    You arrive at Domestic Terminal at either its Concourses A, B, C or D (which have corresponding gates, i.e. C30) and you need to get to the International Terminal, which has Concourses E & F. All Concourses - domestic & international - are connected by the underground 'Plane Train' stopping at the center of each Concourse with escalator & elevator up to Concourse level. On arrival look at overhead screen to find your connecting flight & gate numbers. You should be able to make your connection in time.

     

  • TS to TI in 42 minutes?

    I have to get from the south domestic terminal (TS) to the international terminal (TI) in 42 minutes - what're the chances???

     

    At ATL, all Concourses - domestic & international - are connected by the underground 'Plane Train' stopping at the center of each Concourse with escalator & elevator up to Concourse level. Transfer time is tight. For more information I suggest you open www.ifly.com/atl, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

     

  • Changing Terminal from T6 to T7

    Hi I hope somebody can help me...This is my first time to travel to the US enroute to Albany, NY. I will be flying in from New Zealand via United Airlines and will arrive at Terminal 6 at 10.10am on 5 April and my connecting flight to Chicago O'Hare is from Terminal 7 at 11.45am.. Do I have enough time to go through all the procedures?... Also, if somebody is familiar and can give me a run through of how and where I should go to upon arrival at the terminal so I can figure out where I will be heading to for the procedures, will be much appreciated. Thank you very much for helping out... Cheers

     

    1. I suppose you have booked your flight with United, which uses Terminal 6 at LAX.On arrival at LAX you need to go through passport check, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance and re-check-in your bags; thereafter go back to the departures level, go through security check and on to your gate. No time to waste! T7 has gates 70-77. On arrival at ORD, United uses domestic Terminal 1 (B gates B1-22,C gates C1-332) or Terminal 2 (E gates E1A-15; F1-14). If you need to transfer between T1 & T2 at ORD (O'Hare), you can connect in the secured area without going through security check. For more information I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

    During a 5-hour layover we want to meet with friends who live in the Newark area. Is there a place we can meet for dinner and conversation with poeple who aren't taking flights? Thanks.

     

    Open http://www.ifly.com, then click on EWR Airport Services under QUICK LINKS and choose "Restaurants & Stores", then click on your terminal.

    I have 40 minutes to get from D35 to B9 tomorrow. Will that be OK?

     

    On arrival at ATL at Concourse D, take the elevator or escalator down to the underground 'Plane Train' stopping at the center of each Concourse. At Concourse B, go up again and follow signs to gate B9 (B19-36 and B18-B1 are on opposite sides) Hurry!.

    My daughtr (18) is flying 1st time alone from ATL-PHX-Palm Desert on united. Are all United gates close to each other in PHX or should I seek assistance for her? thx, nervous Mom

     

    She will arrive at & depart from PHX from the same Terminal 2, which has separate gates 1 to 13 and gates S & D near shoeshine. On arrival at PHX, she should look at the overhead screens to find her connecting flight and gate number. Piece of cake!

     

    Note that United doesn't fly EITHER of those routes (I assume you mean Palm Springs, there's no such place as Palm Desert). Your daughter is probably on US Airways. It's fairly easy to make connections on US Airways in Phoenix.

     

    Yes United does serve PHX open http://www.united.com/web/en-US/apps/booking/flight/searchRT.aspx?HP=1

     

    United flies to Phoenix, but they do not Fly Atlanta-Phoenix or Phoenix-Palm Springs.

     

  • 45 Min Connection for Cancun Flight
    Feb 25, 2013
    1
    My family and our 2 toddler are flying from BWI to IAH and have a 45 min layover to connect with our United Flight to Cancun. Will we be able to make the connection? Is there a way to know if we are in the same terminal or not? Moving quickly with 2 toddlers is not easy since we have to wait for our stroller to be brought up etc.

     

    Your Cancun flight will depart from Terminal E and your Baltimore flight will arrive into C or E, both of which are fairly close to one another. If your flight is on time, you can make your connection. Also, during this time of year there are many flights from Houston to Cancun, so if you miss your connection and aren't currently on the last flight, chances are you can be rebooked.

     

  • Quick Visit

    I am flying though O'Hare with about 3 hours layover. Trying to do a quick visit and meal with a family member; what are the options outside of security?

     

    Open www.ifly.com/ord, then click on "ORD Airport Services" under QUICK LINKS & choose "Restaurants & Stores"

     

    I tried that, terminal 3 restaurants all say after security. It will be difficult for me to have a meal with a family that lives in Chicago I guess we can just sit somewhere and talk

     

  • Construction

    Any idea when construction will be complete? Making a connection from Terminal D to Terminal C on March 18th with two children. is two hours enough time?

     

    On arrival at TD, exit terminal & catch the shuttle bus Route A in front of the arrivals level to TC; the bus runs every 10-15 mins. At LGA, TC is presently adding restaurants & eateries & overhaul of Sky Club; TD & TC will be connected by a foot bridge. Both C & D get expanded security lanes - all within the 'next few months'.
