  • Connecting Time

    Our family of 4 is arriving at IAD on United # 533 at 2:20 pm on May 29. We depart on LH#417 at 3:30. Is a 1 hour enough time to connect and what might happen if the UA flight is delayed ( no act of God)?? Thank you!

     

    Yes, that is enough time. If you miss your connection you will be booked on one of the several later United or Lufthansa IAD-FRA flights.

    Only 50 minutes between flights...what's the best way to get from terminal B to terminal C

     

    Take the Skylink train. If your first flight is on-time you'll have enough time.

    Will l have to run for it or it can be done at a regular pace.

     

    As YQB does not seem to have US customs clearance, you would need, on arrival at SFO, have to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance & then re-check in your bags. This alone can take anywhere from 30 to 50 minutes. Where you arrive & depart will depend on the airline(s) you take. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/sfo then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text, including transfers.

    Is 38 mins enough times to get from a2 to c24 at IAD

     

    Barely, you'll have to run.

     

    Your arrivals & departures gates are in different Midfield Concourse buildings. On arrival, look for the AeroTrain sign and take it to the next & last station, then follow signs to the C gates. The train make its continuous rounds, taking minutes. You should be able to make it on time.

     

  • My connection time is only 50 minutes

    I am about to book flights from LIH to Qu├ębec via SFO and Toronto. I will be flying United domestically, then onward on United ( operate by Air Canada) for my international flights. My connection time is only 50 minutes; it looks like I will arrive in Terminal 3 and depart from Terminal A. From what I am reading, it sounds like this connection time might be doable, but I know situations in airports often change. Can someone tell me if this is a feasible connection? Thanks.

     

    Yes, it should be possible to make that connection.

     

    Will l have to run for it or it can be done at a regular pace.

    If I came from SEA by Horizon ariving YVR.If I had check trough NRT already having baggage claim tag but not having JL boarding pass. Can I go to the internal gate without leaving secure area, or just go to JL counter check-in at public area. Can I layover at night when arriving YVR before departure at daytime.

     

    The JAL gate counter would probably be able to print your boarding pass for you. However, if you're talking about connecting in YVR, you will have to leave the secure area anyway after you clear Canadian immigration. I don't know what you mean with your "layover" question.

     

    Thank You ZAP Layover I mean if i stay over night at the airport in public area.

     

    As t staying overnight at YVR: Open http://www.sleepinginairports.net/northamerica/vancouver-airport.htm#.UYPdSEptaiA

     

    Thank You frmay

     

    Are you sure you have to leave the secured area after Canadian immigration? What if you do not have any baggage? I heard if you have not baggage you can go straight to the gate. Please see my question above about "Seattle to Shanghai..." My wife is leaving soon!

  • Air Tahiti (TBIT) to American (T4)

    I am new to LAX. I will be arriving LAX on Air Tahiti Nui Flight# TN102 at 10:25am from Tahiti (international) on a Thursday and connecting to American Airline Flight 2005 (domestic) in Terminal 4 that departs 12:20pm to SFO from LAX. I am American citizen. Will American check my baggage all the way to SFO or do I need to pick up and clear customs in LAX. How is clearing customs in LAX (long wait time)? How do long does it take to then get to Terminal 4. Please provide details so I can plan and know what to expect?

     

    Any time you enter the US you have to claim your baggage in immigration to go through customs. Air Tahiti Nui and American Codeshare so TN may be able to check your bags through to SFO for you, but you will still have to claim them in immigration and then re-check them with AA at the recheck desk. Immigration may take awhile but you should have enough time. T4 is a very short walk from the TBIT (Air Tahiti Nui's terminal).

    I am arriving from Newark at IAD on UA4269 at 11:35 am on May 5, departing to Beijing on UA897 at 12:15 pm. Does anyone has idea or experience that 40 minute connecting time is enough? Thanks!

     

    you will have to hope very hard that your first flight is on-time. Usually that flight will arrive into the A concourse at IAD which requires you to take the Aerotrain from A to C, but some days like today, that flight arrives in C. Regardless, you'll have to hurry.

    we are traveling from sfo with hour layover to houston then going to cancun. we are flying united airlines. will our luggage be transferred for us? how far will our arriving terminal be from our departing terminal?

     

    United uses Terminals A, B, C & E (with corresponding gates) at Houston Intercontinental IAH; your bags will be automatically transferred, but you need to check which Terminal & gate you arrive at/depart from. To get information about terminals & transfers, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iah then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

    Pre check exists in St Louis but for C gates only (usair and some others). If you are departing from an A gate (delta and others), precheck is not available as of may 2, 2013. Check your departure gate to minimize pre-check disappointment.

     

  • MCO-JFK-FCO Alitalia

    I have 1 hour 25 minutes to connect from a Delta flight from MCO to an Alitalia flight to FCO. I have no checked luggage. I have been told that I have to get my boarding pass from Alitalia when I get to JFK. Is this correct and will I have enough time?

     

    It'll be tight but it should be doable if your first flight is on-time. You need to take the airtrain to Terminal 1 from 2 or 3, then go to Alitalia to get your boarding pass, then go through security. Since Delta and Alitalia are both in SkyTeam, Delta may be able to get you a boarding pass in MCO if your tickets were bought on the same reservation.

     

    Thank you

     

  • Connecting at FRA from Riyadh to Chicago
    May 2, 2013

    Hello, We will be flying from Riyadh to Chicago via Frankfurt airport. We fly by Lufthansa from Riyadh to Frankfurt then we fly by United Airlines (Star Alliance member) to Chicago. I understand that flights destined to USA go through Terminal 1 Pier Z in Frankfurt airport. When I checked the flight departures table on Frankfurt airport website, it tell that United Airlines flights depart from Terminal 1B gate Z. I am confused now because my understanding is that if my flight depart from Gate Z then I should go to Terminal1 Z ? right ? What is the difference between Terminal 1AB or terminal 1B ? Many Thanks!

     

    Yes, on arrival at FRA you land in Terminal 1, Concourse B (T1B), and need to get to Concourse T1A (comprising of A gates on lower level and Z gates on upper level). A transfer tunnel outside of security connects T1B & T1A outside security, and the SkyLine train connects inside security (running every 2-3 mins.
