  • Transferring from a Domestic Flight to an International Flight
    Jul 1, 2014
    We are on a Delta flight (DL 080) from Los Angeles arriving Atlanta at 04:47 pm. We have a connecting flight to Milan MPX (DL 074) at 5:45 pm from Terminal I. In less than an hour we will be able to get a connection?


    Yes, you will take the plane train from your arrival concourse to Concourse E or F where your Milan flight will depart. The Plane Train runs inside security.


  • Toronto - Rome - Casablanca FCO connection time
    Jul 1, 2014
    Looking at a flight from Toronto (Canada) to Rome, then Rome to Casablanca (Morocco) - is a 1hr 10m layover enough? Would I have to change terminals? The layover is from 1300-1400h on a Saturday in late October. Both flights are with Alitalia. Thanks in advance for any insight!!


    Both flights will be in Terminal 3, but 70 minutes is awfully tight. I suppose it's possible.


  • 30 min connection enough time?
    Jul 1, 2014
    Hello. We have a 30 min connection time on a Friday in August from DL 4155 (Endeavor) arriving at DTW at 5pm, trying to catch DL3739 (Endeavor) departing for CVG at 5:30 pm. Is this possible? Our seats are in the back of the plane. Thank you!


    Yes, it is possible if your first flight is on-time. Both flights will likely be in the B/C concourse in the McNamara Terminal. However, it doesn't leave much time for delays.


  • BOS to EWR to Costa Rica
    Aug 7, 2014
    Traveling to Costa Rica from Boston, with a change in Newark. I have 46 minute layover in Newark. Does anyone know which terminal I'll come into from Boston, and which I'll be leaving for Costa Rica? Really worried about the layover...


    Are you lying United the whole way? Your flight from Boston will arrive in Terminal A or C and your flight to Costa Rica will depart from Terminal C. If you have to change terminals United runs a shuttle bus inside security.


    Thanks for the info - it is united all the way. If I do come in terminal A, does it take long to get to terminal C?


    It can take up to 30 minutes to get to C, depending on how long you have to wait for the shuttle and how quick the shuttle runs.


    How did the 46 minute layover go? We have the same itinerary. What terminals did you arrive and depart in Newark? Did you have to take shuttle.


  • find the arrival/departure gates
    Jun 29, 2014
    Is there any way to find the gates for arrival from Bucharest and connecting to LAX? both flights on Alitalia in 1 week with 1hr in between?


    You may arrive at either Terminal 1 (T1) or T3, and depart from T3 (which also is used by Alitalia for 'Non-Schengen (foreign) flights. When connecting from gate to gate, follow signs to 'Boarding Area'. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/fco, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

    Hello, I am flying from Prague to Amsterdam ( I am Czech citizen if it matters) and than to Atlanta. I know I have to pick up luggage in ATL but in Amsterdam will they automatically transfer luggage on plane? I am flying with Delta. Thank you


    You arrive at AMS as a Schengen (domestic) arrival. If Delta is the only carrier you use, or if you bought both flights on one ticket, your bags will automatically be transferred to your connecting flight. For terminal details & transfer options, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ams, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the text.


  • Delta conections from Sydney via La to Las Vegas
    Jul 15, 2014
    I am flying from Sydney to LAX on delta flight arriving at 8am, then have a connecting flight on Delta to Las Vegas at 9.15am, my bags will be checked thru to Las Vegas..this doesnt seem much time is it possible ( believe I will fly into Terminal 5 and depart from the same terminal.


    On arrival at LAX you need to go through passport check, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance - then re-check-in bag & proceed to your connecting gate. T5 has gates 51 to 59 - divided into clusters of 50A -51B gates, 52A -53B gates and 54A -59 gates. Hurry - you arrive at rush hour; however, Delta is the only airline at T5.


    Hi, I am wondering if you made the connection, i have an almost identical connection this coming Sunday - thanks


  • Connection Cancun to IAH to Vancouver on United
    Jul 26, 2014
    Hi, We are travellign with United from cancun through Houston then to Vancouver with a 1 hr 15 min connection. Tickets were booked together. Will we make it?


    That is very difficult. The minimum connection time for an international arrival at IAH is 90 minutes. You should change your flight.


    Thanks, Just got a notification that they changed my flight time leaving Houston and added on 25 minutes. I think this may work now. Going from terminal E to C.


  • limited transfer time
    Jun 28, 2014
    We arrive in Detroit on Delta with only 40 min to transfer to international flight to Paris on Air France (in November). Is this enough time?


    All Delta gates are connected inside security in the McNamara Terminal. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time but little time to spare for any delays.


  • Costa Rica
    Jul 1, 2014
    I'm traveling from LA on the 3rd and have a 39 minute layover on a flight to San Jose, Cost Rica. Is that enough time. As anyone ever don't this route?


    That is enough time but barely. You will arrive in C and depart from E, which are directly connected


    I am on the same exact flight trying to make the same layover. Hopefully if there are enough people they can hold it a few minutes if need be.


  • Domestic transfer at Seattle Airport: YVR-SEA-LAS
    Jun 28, 2014
    I am going to travel from YVR to LAS via SEA. I will be arriving at Seattle at 6:48am(Horizon) and departing for Las Vegas at 7:50am(Alaska Airlines). I have only one hour in Seattle. Is it enough time to transfer? Do I have to take my luggage and re-register?


    Go through US Customs clearance at YVR - you will then be a domestic arrival at SEA & simply transfer to your connecting gate, as bags will automatically be transferred. Note that Alaska uses Central Terminal Concourses C, D and Satellite North (N gates). I suggest you open www.ifly.com/sea, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text - paying attention to 'Connecting between Terminal & gates'.


  • PHX to FRA via HOU
    Jun 28, 2014
    My daughter is flying from Phoenix to Frankfurt via Houston. If the flights are on schedule she has 1 hr 5 min at HOU. She will be arriving at C42 and will be leaving from Terminal D. Is that enough time?


    Your transfer time is sufficient: On arrival look for signs to North Concourse, gates C14-23: gate C14 connects to gates D1-D3. (TD has gates D1-12).


  • Connection between Terminal 5 and 1
    Jun 28, 2014
    My JetBlue flight from Charlotte arrives around 09:40 pm and my Korean Air flight to Seoul departs at 12:50, my baggage is checked through from Charlotte (JetBlue-Korean Air has a interline agreement). Will I have enough time considering security etc. BTW it will be on a Tuesday night.-Thanks


    Yes you have plenty of time for transfer. On arrival, look for the 'Airline Terminals Train' sign and take the train to T1 (running counter-clockwise - your next stops after T5, are T7, T8 & T1. On arrival at T1, you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate.


    Thanks sajun14...that takes a world of worry me!


  • Minimum Connection Time
    Jun 28, 2014
    What is minimum connection time at LAX going from Southwest terminal to American terminal, assuming no checked bags and domestic only.


    You arrive at Terminal 1 & depart from Terminal 4. Your only option, other than taking a taxi, is to 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. Your next stops will be T2,T3, TBIT, & T4 - 4 stops taking 10 mins. HOWEVER, you need to go through security check at T4 (with gates 42-49) before proceeding to your connecting gate.


  • SFO --> HOU (Term C) --> Panama (Term E)
    Jun 28, 2014
    I have a one hour and 15 min connection between my flight from SFO (Terminal C) and my flight to Panama (Terminal E). Is that enough time and is it walkable?


    On arrival at IAH, at Terminal C (TC), which has North & South Concourses (North gates C24-27; South C29-45) - the South Concourse at gate C45 connects to Terminal E. (follow signs). You have plenty of time.
