  • Help please

    Due to a change in flight times by Corendon I only have 40 minutes between aflybe flight from Birmingham UK, BE101 and Corendon CND597 to BJL Gambia Africa, will I make it any advice greatly appreciated please. Many Thanks

     

    My search for your BE101 flight from Birminham was unsuccessful (BE stands for Mandarin Airlines) - howeve this is what you need to know at AMS Airport: (a) Arrivals 1 & 2 areas lead up to Departures 1 & 2; and Arrivals 3 & 4 lead up to Departure 3. Departures 1 uses the B & D gates; Departures 2 uses the E gates; Departure 3 uses F, G, H & M gates. As to Corendon connecting flight, I was also unsuccessful in finding a flight - but I did find the airline contact: Corendon Dutch Airlines (CND) - tel. 0031 (0)23-5268979; e-mail info@corendon.nl ; site: www.corendon.nl. It uses Checkin desk Departure 3; Ticket desk, Departure 3; Baggage handler Servisair 0031 (0)20-7952700. The problem with your 40-minute window will be whether your BE101 flight will transfer your bags to your Corendon carrier - if not, you would need, on arrival at AMS, pick up your bag and re-check it in with Corendon at their desk. To give you an idea of how long you would take to transfer from gate areas B-C, D, E, F, G, H or M - walking entire walkway would take 15 mins.

  • T7 to T4, 90 minutes
    Oct 19, 2012

    Am flying into T6 on a United flight from Sydney. Have 90 minutes to get to T4 for an American Eagle flight back home - it was the only way to do it without a 24 hour delay. Will have carryon only. What is the best, fastest way to get from T7 to T4? Will I have to go through security again? I will only have a carryon bag, nothing to declare. Any help appreciated!

     

    On arrival at LAX you need to go through passport check, go through customs clearance and proceed to the ground level; there go down the escalator and take the tunnel to T5; go up the escalator at T5, step out and walk to the left to T4. You will have to go through security check at T4 before moving on to your connecting gate. You have enough time.

     

  • 35 minutes!!!

    I only have 35 minutes for a connection. I will be arriving from fargo on a united flight and trying to catch a flight to frankfurt germany, also on a united flight but it says operated by lufthansa. Is this enough time?

     

    also these are united flights 5659 from fargo and united flight 8879 to frankfurt

     

    On arrival at DEN, look at the overhead screen to find your connecting flight number: As a rule, the operating Airline determines the gate location - in this case Lufthansa, which uses Concourse A (Concourse A has gates A24-39 & A40-68), while United uses Concourse B (Concourse B has gates west B15 to B37; gates east B38 to B60, branching into north gates B59 to B79, and south gates B80 to B95). To get from A to B you will need to take the underground (pre-security) AGTS train which arrives /departs in the center of the Concourses. If you need to change Concourses, 35 minutes is only possible if your incoming flight is on time and you can really move fast.

     

  • Sufficient connection time?

    I will be returning from a school trip to Qatar with 5 students on Sunday, December 9. Our international flight from Qatar is scheduled to arrive at IAD at 6:40 am and our domestic connection home leaves at 8:15. Considering I am traveling with a group, will the 1 hr 35 min. connection time be sufficient? Any suggestions for planning ahead? Thanks!

     

    All international arrivals at IAD will be transported to the International arrivals building where they will have to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance and (if continuing journey) re-check-in bags where indicated. Thereafter a shuttle bus will transport you to your connecting gate. Do make sure that Qatar transfers your bags to the connecting air carrier - if not you would have to check them in at the connecting carrier's counter. Your time should be adequate with proper pre-planning.

  • Terminal 6 to TBIT

    How do I get from Terminal 6 to TBIT without taking the bus?

     

    At LAX on arrival at T6 go down to the ground level, take the excalator down to the tunnel connecting to T5, go up escalator, exit T5, and walk to the left passing T4, and around the bend to TBIT, where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate.

     

  • Picking bags at International checkpoint

    I will be arriving in Charlotte (CLT) from Brazil. Then my connecting flight is from CLT to LAX, but I plan to skip that leg and take a new Delta Airlines flight from CLT to ATL. I understand that I have to go through customs and re-check my bags once I land in CLT. Would there be any problems if I pick up my bags and instead of re-checking them, take them to check in to my new flight to ATL? Is there any ticket counter around the area after passing through customs?

     

    I also forgot to mention that my flight from Brazil to CLT is on US Airways. I will be taking a different airline if I skip the recheck in process.

     

    On arrival at CLT at Concourse E of the passenger terminal,via US Airways, and going through passport control, pick up bags, go through customs clearance, take your bags and go to the Delta counter to check in your bags & get your boarding pass, then proceed to Concourse A with gates A1-12 - accessible from the ticketing level and served by Delta,

     

  • Gate?

    Where is gate SH2?

     

    LGA has no such gate. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/lga, click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down to the detailed text showing Airline affiliation, concourses, gates and transfer options.

     

    Gate SH2 is at Terminal A or more commonly "Marine" terminal.

    I am coming to frankfurt by UA900 @9.45 am and taking Luftansa LH758 @11.00 am to Chennai, India, Do I have to go through immigration or any other clearences as I have only 75 minutes to board the Chennai flight.

     

    You arrive & depart at Frankfurt Airport from Terminal 1. While United uses Concourse B, Lufthansa uses both Concourses A & B - all with corresponding gates. If you do not yet have a boarding card for your connecting flight, you can obtain one at the gate or at the Transfer Desk in the B Concourse of Terminal 1. To transfer between B and A gates, you can use the transfer tunnel outside security, or the SkyLine train inside security, which leaves every 2-3 mins. (On arrival you will need to go through non-Schengen passport control - just follow signs.) You have sufficient time.

    Does anybody know which Concourse do most Alaska Airlines land? Or, more specifically, those coming from Anchorage? I have to write detail step-by-step instruction for a friend's mother what to do and where to go...

     

    Today's search for Anchorage flights via Alaska Air brought up gates C, D & N - C & D are Concourses, N is the North Satellite. (search: http://www.portseattle.org/Sea-Tac/Flights-Airlines/Pages/default.aspx).

    My 2 sisters and I will be arriving at Ord from stl on American. One is in wheelchair. We fly to Ireland on Aer Lingus.What is best way to get there?

     

    You arrive at ORD via AA at Terminal 3 - from there take the ATS train (look for signs) to your connecting Terminal 5, served by Air Lingus. T5 has only one Concourse M, wrapping around concession court, and has to the left gates M12-M21 to the right; to the right gates M7-M1, and extends northward in the center to gates M8-M11. It is important that you check with AA as to whether they will transfer your bags to the AirLingus flight - if not, you would have to claim your bags at T3 and re-check them in at T5! The wheelchair will be stored in the hull of the aircraft when you arrive at the gate. Note that on your return to ORD, you will need to go through the customs clearance process.

     

  • Post-security transfer from TA to TB?
    Oct 17, 2012

    Is there a post-security bus to transfer from TA (arriving on an Air Canada flight, so already cleared US immigration) to TB (departing on United on an international flight) without having to exit-->Airtrain-->security? Have time, but want to avoid the hassle...especially over Thanksgiving...

     

    The shuttle bus at EWR only runs between Terminals A & C, as alternative to the AirTrain serving all three terminals, but in their non-sterile /pre-security areas - meaning you will need to go through security check on arrival at Terminal B. The Airtrain runs on the newly-designated 'All Gates' levels (between levels 2 & 3).

     

  • Getting from 2G to 2E

    I shall arrive on an Air France fligt from Billun Denmark and go on to Los Angeles on an other Air France flight from terminal 2E. Will our baggage be transfered automaticly, or do we need to collect it at 2G and check it again at 2E?

     

    Since you are using Air France for both legs of your journey, and you arrive from a Schengen (domestic) country, your bags should automatically be transferred to your connecting flight at CDG Airport. However, keep in mind that Satellite 2G is further away from the rest of the satellites - you need to take the shuttle bus between 2E & 2G - signs will direct you.

    Decor is nice, snacks and drinks are just OK, but WAY too small, always crowded, many times has been standing room only.

    Is United Express coming from Harlingen in the same terminal as American?

     

    American Airlines uses Terminal A at IAH, while United uses TA, B, C & E - all have corresponding gates. Your ticked and the overhead screen on arrival will indicate connecting gate.

     

    At IAH Airport, American Airlines uses Terminal A at IAH, while United uses TA, B, C & E - all have corresponding gates. Your ticket and the overhead screen on arrival will indicate connecting gate.
