  • Changing from terminal 4 to Tom Bradley
    Mar 17, 2013
    1
    I will be going from terminal 4 to International next week. Do I have to exit the terminal and go through security again once at International terminal? Typically, how long does it take including walking there (I have 1 hour 15 min connection time).

     

    Yes, you will have to exit the terminal and go back through security. If your first airline will not transfer your bag to your second airline I don't think you'll have enough time. Even as it is, it is a very tight connection.

     

  • Reclam baggage between flights?

    Hi, we are flying from the UK to Las Vegas for four nights, we then fly from Vegas to Dallas wth 1hr 45 mins until we fly on to Cancun. Will we need to get our baggage between flights or is this done for us? Thank you

     

    You will not have to claim your baggage in Dallas - you only have to go to the gate for your flight to Cancun.

    Arriving T1 9.35am from Amsterdam. Depart Aegean Air for Athens 11.00am T3 on separate ticket with cabin luggage only. I will have a printed boarding pass. Can I check in at gate or do I have to go to regular check in counters? Is there a fast track check in counter? Will I make it? Thanks

     

    All you need to do on arrival at FCO is follow signs to 'Boarding Area' (gates B through H). T3 has Boarding Are with gates D1-10 & 6-19. (All Boarding areas B through H are inter-connected.

     

    Thanks momar13. Forgot to say that I have Aegean Air app on my phone, so I can do a web check in. Where would I find a convenient kiosk in T3 to print out my boarding pass? Or do you think I'd be better to check in via a computer & have the printed document - in case I can't find a kiosk? Thanks again.

     

  • 40 mins Connection Terminal A to C
    Mar 17, 2013

    I have two small children and I'm connecting between Terminals A and C with a 40 min connection. Should I be concerned??

     

    I should mention...I'm coming in from Tulsa and ddeparting to Orlando

     

    On arrival at IAH, Terminal A, look for signs for the above-ground TerminaLink train which runs continuously between the terminals inside security. On arrival at TC, the TerminaLink train station and splits shortly thereafter into the gateway to gates C24 to C27, to the right, gateway to gates C14 to C23 in the center, and C2 to C14 to the left. You make it easily within 40 mins.

    my iternany says i land at terminal s and get on another plane at treminal i. these terminals don't show up on a terminal map. where are they?

     

    Indeed that is confusing. North & South 'Terminals' are part of the Domestic Terminal, located at either side of the Atrium. They only function as baggage claim and check-in/ticketing and have no gates. Currently Alaska & Delta use the South Terminal. (open map: http://www.atlanta-airport.com/docs/terminal/mt.pdf ). Delta uses Concourses A, C, D, E, F with corresponding gates; Alaska uses B, D, D & E gates. All Concourses - domestic & international - are connected by the underground 'Plane Train' stopping at the center of each Concourse. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/lax, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

    Is there time to get from an aer lingus flight from Dublin arriving at terminal e at 5 pm to get to a domestic flight on Virgin America in terminal b. carry on luggage only

     

    You did not state your departure time. However, presuming that you used the U.S. Customs pre-clearance at Dublin Airport, you can immediately exit Terminal E and head for Terminal B. Connected to TE, to the east, are TC & TB. There are no post-security transfers; however, you can use the walkways between terminals, but need to go through security check at TB.

     

  • Arr on Domestic Then Checkin for interna

    I will be arriving on a domestic flight at Terminal D. I then will be going to Terminal F where I will need to check in for a flight on Korean Air. This is my first time at ATL so I am not sure what I need to do. Thanks.

     

    If your bags are checked through and you are checked in for your Korean flight just take the Plane Train from D to F.

    How much time does it take to get from the int'l terminal to the south terminal on the plane train

     

    At ATL, part of Domestic passenger terminal are the North & South terminals on opposite sides, with only check-in & baggage claim facilities. While Concourse T is attached to the Main Terminal, separate parallel-running buildings house the Concourses A - D with corresponding gates (i.e., gate A19). As you arrive at the International Terminal, you will need to go through passport clearance, pick up your bag, go through customs clearance & (if continuing your journey) re-check-in your bags. Thereafter follow signs to the 'Plane Train' serving all concourses in the center of their gate arrangements. Also, the Terminal Connector Shuttle located outside the Arrivals level takes you to the Domestic Terminal - a 12-minute ride.

    If arriving at LAX on united from Sydney and changing flights to fly on to New york do I need to go through the Security area after going through customs I fly into terminal 6 and fly out of 7 and is there a quick way off getting to terminal 7 Also if I miss my onward flight due to heldups ect does United have to put me on another flight Thanks for any ones help

     

    On Arrival at LAX, you go through passport control, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance and then re-check-in your bags (35-50 mins); thereafter, proceed via escalator down to the tunnel connecting T6 with T7; take escalator a T7 back up and take elevator to departure level, there you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. Check with United as to their policy.

     

    Thank you for all your help

     

  • Best-priced Bailey's was an important indicator
    Mar 15, 2013
    0
    I often use the duty-free price of a 1 litre bottle of Bailey's as a measure of prices across the whole shop. In Amman it was $18au, by Doha it was up to $23au, and by the time we hit Perth, $30au. Thatmeans Amman was nearly half the price of some other places. Of course when outlets have a 2-for-1 special, the relative bslance changes, so you can still be lucky at relatively expensive places.

     

  • booking question - time btwn flights

    I am connecting to an international flight out of IAH that departs at 7:50PM. I have a few choices to select from for the first flight into IAH, arrival times as follows 1:00PM, 2:00PM or 5:00PM. I would like to avoid a long layover, but want to have enough time, which arrival time would you suggest booking in order to allow enough time to claim luggage and go to customs to board my flight at 7:50PM

     

    Unless your first flight is also international, you will not have to claim luggage or go through customs in IAH. Even if your first flight IS international, the 5 PM arrival should be fine.

    I will arrive at IAH from Istanbul on TURKISH AIR at 6PM, my connecting flight to San Diego on UAL is at 9PM. Will this allow enough time to collect baggage and clear customs, how long does this process usually take?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. It should take anywhere between an hour and 1.5 hours to go through immigration, recheck baggage, and go back through security.

  • Arriving T5 leaving T2
    Mar 15, 2013

    Is 2 hours enough time to clear customs and get from T5 to T2? Arrive Delta and leave Air China.

     

    You only clear customs if you are an international arrival. If Delta will transfer your bags to Air China, all you need to do is exit T5 and take the LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island in front of each terminal, under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', which runs every 12-15 mins. After T5, it stops at T6, T7, T8, around the bend to T1 & T2 - five stops or 12 mins. At T2 you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. If Delta does not transfer bags to Air China, you need to take your bags along and check them in at T2 with Air China. Your two hours should suffice in any case.
