  • need to switch airlines and make connection
    Oct 3, 2013
    7:35 arrival SW air and 8:40 departure US Air both Term 4 but have to check golf clubs.....what i the quickest way to make the connection. Have to go to baggage and then back?? Is the security line a problem???


    You don't have enough time to claim your bags then re-check with US Airways, then go through security and to your gate. Southwest does not transfer bags to any other airline. You need to either go without your golf clubs, have them shipped ahead of your trip, or pay to have your ticket changed (if there is still ticket availability in the same fare class as what you bought, you can change your Southwest ticket with no change fee). You really shouldn't have bought those tickets without doing some research first.


    ZAP you confirmed all of our fears however with a little luck and A little hustle and a little airport knowledge and charm WE MADE our connection!!!!! Never say never :)


  • UA to ET connection
    Oct 2, 2013
    Traveling from CLT to IAD on UA 3800 and connecting to ET 501. At which terminal will the United flight arrive, which terminal do I get ET501, and how do I get from one terminal to the other?


    IAD only has one terminal, but has two concourse buildings consisting of four lettered concourses. You will arrive in concourse C/D and depart from concourse A. You can take the Aerotrain or mobile lounge shuttle between the concourses. Just follow the signs to A when you arrive.


    Thank you very much.

  • United connection Domestic to International
    Oct 1, 2013
    I am traveling from AZ to EWR and then Connecting to Shannon Ireland -all on United - I only have a 45 min Connection and was wondering if for some reason its delayed or ? if I will have enough time to get from one flight to another... help :)


    Yes, you will have enough time if your first flight is on-time (both flights will be in Terminal C). However, you are right in that any significant delay may make the connection impossible. If you miss your connection you may be re-booked to go through London or you may just end up spending the night in New York.

    what gate does West Jet flight WS370 arrive at?


    Flight not listed yet; however WestJet uses Terminal 3, which has gates A1-A7, B7-22 & C24-41


    Today WS370 is a YYZ-YOW flight. Tomorrow it is a YQR-YYZ-YOW flight. What day are you talking about?


  • getting from B to C
    Oct 1, 2013
    What is the most efficient way to get from Terminal B to Terminal C? Does one have to go through Security again? Is 39 minutes enough time?


    At IAH the above-ground TerminaLink train, starts its service at the Terminal A station, ad connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security - you have enough time.


  • Connecting time from CDG to MCO (T4 to T2)
    Oct 2, 2013
    Hello, I'm fying from CDG to MCO on next January, arriving at JFK at 13:25 (terminal4), and having a connecting flight at 15:50 (terminal2). So, Have I enough time to take my connection ? I hope the climatic conditions in January won't be difficult. May be it's better to change my connecting flight to ensure myself to arrive without any problem... Thank you, Florent


    You will need to go through passport control, pick up bags, go through security check and re-check-in your bag. As to JFK: Delta has a gate-to-gate bus transfer between Terminals 4 & 2.


    Thank you for your answer. I didn't know that there is a delta bus between t2 and t4. I thought having to take airtrain. So, do you think that 2h45 are enough for my connexion or is it better to modify my flights ? Thanks you !


    This is 2h25 of connexion in fact


    Since you will already be outside security after you go through customs, it is likely that it will be faster for you to take the Airtrain. You should have enough time with the connection you have. Any weather delay is more likely to delay the JFK-MCO flight than your CDG-JFK flight.


    thank you for you answers. I was anxious about my connecting time, as you say it will be enough, that is perfect. I hope the passport check will be fast, may be is there a specifc line for connexion... A last question : beyond customs and after recheck my luggage, is it possible to drop my luggage at terminal 2 or may i have to transport them until terminal 4 ? Thank you !


    There is no line for connections - most passengers on the flight will be connecting. Remember that you are arriving in 4 and departing from 2. There is a re-check desk right after you exit customs. You will not have to take your bags to T2 with you yourself.


  • Meeting friend terminal d and i'm coming from terminal b
    Sep 30, 2013
    Can I walk from terminal b to terminal d? My friend is flying southwest and I'm flying delta. Trying to figure out how to meet up and pick up luggage.


    What Airport?




    It'll be hard. There is a shuttle bus that goes between the terminals. That's really the only way.


  • LH 1051 to LH 440
    Oct 2, 2013
    I am arriving to FRA from CDG next week, continuing on to IAH. I only have 45min between flights. Will I go through passport control and security? Is 45min enough time? How far apart from my landing gate is my departure gate? Thanks


    Please help!


    Can someone please answer this? I need to know if I should change to another airport!


    You will only go through security at your gate. You should have enough time. If for some reason you miss your connection Lufthansa has lots of ways to rebook you to your final destination.


  • Gates?
    Sep 30, 2013
    Arriving from MKE, departing to FRA, which concourses/gates most likely? Thanks !


    That depends on your airlines. DTW has 2 terminals. The McNamara Terminal is used for all airlines serving DTW, except Air Canada, AirTran, American, Frontier, Lufthansa, Royal Jordanian, Southwest, Spirit, United, US Airways & all charters - which use the North Terminal. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/dtw, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    Well since only Delta flies MKE-DTW you will arrive in the McNamara Terminal, probably concourse A as it appears all the afternoon arrivals are Delta and not Delta Connection. If your flight to FRA is also operated by Delta you will also leave from concourse A. If your flight to FRA is on Lufthansa you will have to take a bus to the North Terminal and you will need at least 90 minutes for your transfer.


  • terminal 1 to 2f
    Sep 30, 2013
    I have an air france flight from Marsielle to CDG- it arrives Terminal 1, then I need to go to T2F back to Newark- I have 1 hour and 45 min. is that enough time-


    At Paris deGaulle Airport, the CDGVAL is the light-rail airport shuttle (CDGVAL) runs between T1 & T2F, stopping at Parking PR, near Hilton Hotel / Ibis. Your transfer time should be enough.


  • T4 Delta International - T4 Delta domestic 1h38m
    Sep 30, 2013
    Arriving from CDG at 1:17pm and departing to SJU 2:55pm both on Delta flights. Do we have enough time to make this?


    That will be difficult but it's probably doable. You'll have to hope your first flight is on-time. Delta has an evening flight to SJU most days if you miss your connection.


  • SWA to Hawaiin
    Oct 4, 2013
    At LAS I know SWA flies into/out of B and C gates. Hawaiin flies into/out of D gates. If I arrive on a SW flight into B/C, can I get to D without re-checking through security? I've only left myself 1 hour (which I think is pretty standard layover time) to get from on flight to the next but I can't tell if I need to do security again after arriving on SWA to get between B/C and D. Thanks!


    First of all, you will only have a chance to make this connection if you have no checked baggage as Southwest won't transfer your bags to Hawaiian. Secondly you leave yourself no room for error. I believe you can take the train from B/C to D without having to go through security again.


    Thanks. We are in fact NOT checking bags- we of course knew that there's no way we'd make an hour layover with bags. Ironically I've been to LAS countless times but always as a destination and never once as a layover. So that was the reason for the no-security question as I scoured the mccarran website for a long time and could find nothing about security as it related to inter-gate exchanges. Thanks!


  • Delta conections
    Sep 29, 2013
    I'm flying into jfk with delta in December at 16.10 terminal 4 and have a conecting flight with delta to Quebec at 18.00 terminal 2. Will I have time I'm a uk citerzen.


    That will be difficult. YOu will clear US immigration, claim your bags, go through customs, then re-check your bags with Delta. Then you'll have to take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train from T4 to T2 and go back through security and to your gate.


  • T8 Connection
    Sep 29, 2013
    Hey, I´m flying to JFK from HEL arriving at 15:50. Connecting flight to LAX from the same terminal T8 departures at 16:55. Do i have enough time to change?


    No, that is not enough time. You will have to go through immigration, collect your bags, go through customs and re-check them, then go back through security. That will be very difficult to do at peak time in only 65 minutes.
