  • Layover Q!

    Arrive Terminal B from Sydney flying american airlines and have a layover time of 2h 25mins to make next flight in terminal 4 to continue on to rio de janeiro (via miami). Will we be pushed for time?

     

    American does not fly Sydney-LAX. Your flight will be operated by QANTAS, which uses the TBIT. Terminal 4 is right next to the TBIT. You should have enough time.

     

  • Meeting husband at SW baggage claim

    Hi all, We are flying to Philly this Friday to see family. My husband is flying in on Southwest, which I understand is Terminal E. I am on US Airways, which I found could be either Terminals A, B, or C (not an Express flight so not F). I have planned to meet him at Terminal E since he will be taking our "big suitcase" (no baggage fees on Southwest) and having my aunt pick us up by car there. Is this a walk I can make (from Terminal A, B, or C to E) or is there some sort of shuttle? i only see a shuttle going down to Terminal F and it doesn't seem to stop at E for you. Thank you,

     

    Yes, you can walk to E.

    Hi, I'll arrive in JFK from Italy at 13:30 fly AA199, connection with fly AA 85 to SFO at 15:30, I'm a little bit worried to lose my fly, are there some tips to avoid it ? Thanks

     

    "Lose my fly"? What does that mean? You should have enough time to make your connection and AA will have later flights to SFO if you miss it.

    Arriving UNITED AIRLINES 804 from NRT. Connecting UA 3726 for IND. Which terminal will I be arriving at, and which terminal will I be departing from? Is 1 hour 30 minutes enough to connect? Thanks

     

    You will arrive in C or D and depart from C or D as well (likely D). You will have plenty of time.

     

    Thank you very much.

     

  • Time to clear customs

    I am arriving at 3:15 from Cairo Egypt Air, so I assume T4. I have an AA connecting flight at 5:15 from, I assume, T8. Is this enough time to clear customs and get to T8?

     

    It should be enough time. You take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train between terminals.

     

  • Transit between terminals?

    Hi, I am travelling from Rome to New York next Monday. It's a Delta flight operated by Alitalia, and on my ticket reservation it says it will arrive at terminal 1 at JFK. On the same ticket, I have a connection to Montreal on another Delta flight, from terminal 2. The layover time is 2hr45min. can somebody confirm that terminal 1 and terminal 2 are indeed the terminals Delta uses for their flights from Rome, and to Montreal, respectively? How do I transit from terminal 1 to terminal 2? Thank you so much for your response!

     

    Alitalia uses Terminal 1. The Delta Connection flight to Montreal will depart from Terminal 2. You use the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train to go between terminals.

     

    Thank you so much ZAP. Your response is very useful Do I have to claim my luggage, and clear customs at JFK, before I board my next plane, to Canada? Both flights were bought on the same reservation.

     

    Yes, you will have to do all that.

     

    Can I re-check my luggage at the Delta Counter at Terminal 1, before i take the AirTran to Terminal 2? Where is it located?

     

    If your bags are all checked through then you probably can use the re-check counter in Terminal 1. The Airtrain is located above the curbside of the terminals. There will be signs that direct you to it.

  • where do I go? Is it enough time?

    I arrive at Newark from Spain at 2:15PM in terminal B and I have a connecting flight in Terminal C at 4PM, both with United. I will have to go through customs and all that and switch terminals and go through security again, is that enough time? I also do not know where the airtrain is located, can anyone tell me what it is near or how to get there from the gates in Terminal B? Finally, if I do miss my flight, what will happen? I'm very worried I'm going to miss my flight!

     

    It should be enough time. The Airtrain is fairly obvious and operates on the non-secure side. I you miss your connection you will be rebooked on a later flight to your destination, if there is one. If so you will be rebooked the next day.

     

  • Where is the Airtrain

    Hello, I will be arriving at Terminal B and need to get to Terminal C without much time. Can you tell me what gate number the airtrain is near to or anything like that? From the gate that I arrive at, will I need to go up or down any escalators or anything to get on the airtrain? Thank you!

     

    The Airtrain does not operate on the secure side, so it is not near "gates". However, United does operate a secure side shuttle from the base of the B3 satellite to near C71. http://www.united.com/web/en-US/content/travel/airport/maps/ewr.aspx

     

    do you think it would be faster to take the shuttle than the airtrain?

     

    If your arrival in Terminal B is domestic, the shuttle. If your arrival is international and you'll have to go through security again anyway, take the AirTrain.

     

  • Connecting Flight - enough time?

    I'm flying from Bari to Rome on Alitalia arriving at 7:55am. My departing flight to JFK on AA is now at 9:50am (moved up from 11:40am). I need to check a bag. Will I be able to make this connection?

     

    Just realized that I arrive in Terminal 1 and my departing flight is out of Terminal 5 - so I assume I need to take a bus? Is that the quickest option?

     

    Yes, that's your only option. If your first flight is on-time you should be OK.

     

    Thank you.. I was checking and today the AA flight departed from Terminal 3 (not 5). Maybe they arrive in 5 & depart from 3. So I'm hoping that is the case when we leave.

     

    It's the other way around - you have to go to Terminal 5 to go through security. Then you are bussed to Terminal 3 where the aircraft is. When you arrive you are processed in terminal 3. Read this: http://www.roninrome.com/%20transportation/where-to-meet-at-fco

    Ticket states terminal 1. Is that a concourse?

     

    CLT has only one terminal with Concourses A - E; I suggest you open www.ifly.com/clt then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'MAPS & DIRECTIONS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

     

  • Connecting to Croatia Airlines

    Hi. We only have 50 minutes to change from our flight on American Airlines to get to Croatia Airlines. Is this possible?

     

    Your first concern is to find out whether American is transferring bags to Croatia airline flight; if not you need to claim your bags & re-check them in with Croatia. On arrival you go through passport check at Area A. Croatia is most likely at Terminal 1, Concourse A. 50 mins. is very tight.

    How do you get from the metrolink station to the terminal

     

    It depends what airline you are taking. There is an Lambert-East stop that you use if you are flying Southwest or Airtran and a Lambert-Main stop that you use if you are taking another airline. Both are located very close to their respective terminals.

     

  • First time in Europe - Surprising my boys!

    I am arriving on AA in Terminal 5 and am surprising my boys and meeting them off their Iberia/Vueling flight which lands in Terminal 3. Where can I meet them so it will be a total surprise without having to call them? Also, what should I do with a 5 hour layover?

     

    Actually, no flights arrive in Terminal 5 - it is departures only. You will arrive in Terminal 3. I think you will probably have a hard time finding them without having a meeting place. Terminal 3 is a big place. Here is a good writeup - http://www.roninrome.com/%20transportation/where-to-meet-at-fco

    Hello,my family (hubby,myself,1 kid) are flying july 4, 2013 from IAH-HKG, connecting @ ORD, but only 48 min connection time between ORD to HKG. We are flying United. Is this enough time coming from domestic to international? Not sure what gates will be used. Thanks for the input!

     

    Both gates will be in Terminal 1. If your first flight is on-time you will have enough time.
