  • Domestic to International Transfer
    Apr 9, 2014
    1
    Hi, I arrive on UA4801 from Roanoke to Dulles. Guess it arrives in Concourse D at 8.50PM. I have a flight to Abu Dhabi at 10.15PM from Gate A16. My bags are checked in straight to Abu Dhabi. Can I make it in time? Where do I get past passport control and security? Thanks.

     

    You will not have to go through passport control until you get to Abu Dhabi. You will go through security in Roanoke and not have to in Washington Dulles. Concourses A and D are connected inside security by the Aerotrain and Mobile Lounge. However, your flight from Roanoke may arrive in concourse A, which would make your transfer even easier. You should have enough time.

     

  • 50 minute layover in Newark
    Apr 9, 2014

    Hi, we are traveling with our baby from DC to Hamburg, Germany and only have 51 minutes between our flights in Newark (both are United flights). I believe our domestic flight arrives in Terminal A and our departing flight leaves from Terminal C. I know we should take the transfer shuttle to avoid having to go through security again but I was wondering how often that shuttle runs. Also, is 50 minutes realistically sufficient time to get from one gate to the next (with a baby)?

     

    It will be tough but it's doable. The shuttle runs almost constantly since a lot of people have to make that transfer.

     

  • 1h25 layover in JFK from YQB
    Apr 9, 2014

    Bought one ticket from Delta june 25th from YQB (quebec City) to FLL with a transfer at JFK. Arrival at JFK at 6:45 AM and flight to FLL at 8:10 AM (DL1271). I'm worrying about this short layover. YQB don't have pre clearance for US customs. So, i figure that the arrival will be at terminal 4. I'm right ? Don't know yet if flight to FLL launch from T4 or T2. Mabe i will have to change terminal. I will travel with women and childs (7 and 4) with checked luggages. I know that my luggage will be checked in at YQB, so, this must be helpful. In addition, Delta still sale this flight. For this reason, I also figure that it should be ok. I'm too naive/optimist ?? First time at JFK. Any tips that can help ? Thank in advance and sorry for my french-canadian style english :-)

     

    This will be very difficult. Yes, you will arrive in Terminal 4, go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, and re-check it. Usually Delta flights from JFK Terminal 4 start with the number 4 and flights from Terminal 2 start with 2. However, your flight starts with neither, which is confusing. Immigration should not be crowded at that time of the morning but this will still be a very tough connection to make. Also, Delta has another flight at 11:30, so if you do miss your connection you won't have to wait that long until the next flight.

     

    Thanks for your answer, even if it's not the answer i was hoping to... I saw on flightstats that DL1271 used to launch from T4. My bags should be tagged to FLL at YQB, so i should not have to re-check it. Does it will help ? Finally, why Delta sold that kind of flight ??

     

    Should i contact Delta to see if it's possible to get an arrangement ?

     

    Any time you enter the US and go through Immigration, you have to claim your bags to go through US customs, then re-check, even if your bags are tagged through to your final destination. That's the law. When Delta 1271 operated JFK-FLL for three days this fall it left from T2 two days and T4 three days. I don't know why Delta sold you those flights. I don't know what kind of arrangement you would expect to get out of Delta.

     

    Hi again, Just telling that I just speak with expedia agent (who spoke with Delta one) who firmly confirm that the plane from YQB will arrive at terminal 2 and the flight to FLL depart from terminal 2 too. Mabe that's why Delta offering a so short layout connection. The agent told me that everything should be ok. Anyway, as ticket is bought, i fell less anxious about this. Just prepared my mind for the worst case i'll take the 11h30 flight. Thanks again !

     

  • KLM connecting flight

    Connecting KLM from Houston to KLM Glasgow on an August weekend, with 2 hour layover. Is that enough time and what procedures will we have?

     

    Since you are arriving from a non-schengen country and transferring to another one, you will just have to go through security at your departure gate. That should be plenty of time.

    I'm looking to fly from Belize (BZE) to Denver (DEN). I have a layover at IAH. Is 2 hours enough time to go through security/customs and get to my next flight? Keep in mind I'm flying on a Friday :-/

     

    Flying United. Don't know terminals. I haven't actually purchased a ticket. I want to make sure I'll have enough time first.

     

    You will arrive from Belize in Terminal E. You will go through immigration, collect your bags, go through customs and re-check your bags. Then you will go through security. Your flight to Denver will depart from Terminal E, or more likely, Terminal C, which is connected to E.

    Hello, I am going to be flying to O'Hare into terminal 1 via United. I have two hours to catch my flight to Dublin via Aer Lingus (assumining terminal 5). Will that be enough time with just carryon luggage? I am gathering I have to take the airport train and then go back through security?

     

    Yes, you have the procedure correct. It should be plenty of time if your first flight is on-time, the transfer shouldn't take more than 45 minutes.

     

    Thank you!

    Honolulu to Cleveland through connection @Dulles with 1hr between gates, will this be enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. If your flight from Cleveland arrives in Concourse A, you take the Aerotrain or mobile lounge to concourse C/D where the Honolulu flight will depart. They are connected inside security.

     

  • JFK International to Domestic - Is 1hr 50 min enough?

    Hi, My wife and baby will be arriving by emirates flight from Dubai at terminal 4 at 8:25 am and have a US airways connecting flight to Charlotte at terminal 8 at 10:15 am Is this enough time for them to transfer as I have heard stories about long queues at immigration checks.(they are not US citizens)

     

    It will be tough but not impossible to make that connection.

     

  • LHR/RDU transfer at IAD

    I arrive on UA 919 from LHR at 15:15 on a Sunday and need to transfer to UA 1719 to RDU which leaves at 17:00. Is this enough time and where do I need to go when I land?

     

    Yes, this should be enough time. When you arrive you will be funneled into United's immigration facility in the C/D concourse. You will go through US Immigration, claim your checked bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and then go through security and to your departure gate, which will also be on the C/D concourse.

     

  • Traveling with toddler: getting from the Intl terminal to Terminal 3

    We will be arriving at the International Terminal with a toddler and need to get to Terminal 3 (UA). Our baggage is not ticketed through to our US destination so we'll be pulling those along. What's the best way to get to Terminal 3? AirTrain? or just walk?

     

    It depends where you come out of the International Terminal, walking and the Airtrain would probably take about the same amount of time.

    Flying from Beirut to Barcelona with 55 min layover in FCO I will land in terminal 3 and the plane will take off from terminal 1( flying both on Alitalia) is 55 min enough time, my luggage is checked in to my last destination

     

    That will be very difficult. You will have to go through Schengen immigration and security after you arrive.

     

    Thank you appreciate your prompt answer

     

  • PHL International/Domestic transfer

    Flying from ORF to Africa with transfers in PHL and Qatar. Should 1.5 hours be long enough for the transfer from domestic to international? On the way back, I would assume I need to get my bags and recheck them for my international to domestic transfer, but I've heard rumors this isn't necessary in Philly. Can anyone confirm?

     

    Yes, 1.5 hours will be plenty of time on your way over to Qatar. On the way back, yes, you will have to claim your bags to go through customs and then re-check them.

     

  • Connection betwen West Jet and Delta flight

    I am arriving in terminal C on west Jet and have to connect with Delta in Terminal D. I bought the ticket together, do I need to claim my luggage or will it go on, and if so is all of this doable in 1 hrÉ

     

    No, you do not have to claim your baggage. WestJet should be able to check your bags through to Delta and Terminals C and D are connected by a pedestrian bridge inside security.

    Arriving 6:20PM Delta connector and departing KLM international. Time between is 83 minutes if flight on time; is that enough?:

     

    If you bought both flights on a single ticket, you won't need to pick up bag & re-check in with KLM. You arrive most likely on Concourse C and need to go to the center of the concourse, take the escalator down and take the underground 'Plane Train' stops at the center of each Concourse. Your KLM Concourse is F (F gates). You have enough time in both instances.

     

  • Any short connection line at passport control?

    I will fly from MEX to ATL with DL366 arriving to ATL at 17:22, then connecting with domestic flight DL2112 at 19:34 for ORD. Shall I have enough time to check with passport control, take my luggage, re-check it and pass through security check? There exists any short-connection line at passport control, just like in JFK?

     

    That is not a short connection. You should have plenty of time.
