  • Delta FCO/United FCO
    Jan 29, 2013
    We are arriving FCO on two seperate airlines. Both arrive within ten minutes of each other. We will be headed to Testacio, Rome - not sure if by train or bus. Any recommendations what is the least expensive? Also where to meet once we arrive at FCO?


    Both airlines Delta & United use Terminal 5 at FCO. You may want to meet in front of the information counter in the Arrivals area, where you also can get some transportation information. For more information open www.ifly.com/fco & scroll down to "To get from the Airport to your destination"; also click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • 30 minute layover
    Jan 30, 2013
    I am flying US Airways with only a 30 minute layover between flights. My flight arrives at 12:29 am from Phoenix (flt 496) and then departs 12:59 am to Charlotte (flt 498). If I miss my connecting flight, another flight to Charlotte is not available until 10 am that morning! Do I have enough time? Any idea on what gates will be used? thank you.


    At DEN, US Airways uses Concourse B of the Jeppesen Terminal. Concourse B has gates west B15 to B37; gates east B38 to B60, branching into north gates B59 to B79, and south gates B80 to B95.


    US Airways does not have a very big operation in Denver, so your connection will be very short distance. However, based on the times of your flight, I suspect that the same aircraft will operate your PHX-DEN and DEN-CLT flights, so if that's the case you can't miss your connection!


    Actually I just checked and they will not be operated by the same aircraft, but regardless, US Airways doesn't have many gates at DEN so it will be a very short walk between gates.


  • connecting flights, do I need to hurry?
    Feb 8, 2013
    I have a connection from Hamburg to Amsterdam landing on 11.10 and will travel to Washington DC on 12.45. both flights operated by KLM. Do I have enough time or do I need to hurry?


    You should have enough time for transfer at AMS. However, I strongly suggest you open www.ifly.com/ams, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.


    The info is sadly lacking. No tab is called quick links and there is no detailed text.


  • JFK Terminal 8
    Jan 28, 2013
    My husband and I each fly into JFK airport at terminal 8. My flight is domestic and his is international, both are American Airlines. Will we be in the same building or in different buildings? Terminal 8 has two separate buildings. Thank you.


    Terminal 8 at JFK is one building, with an Arrivals level housing customs clearance, which your husband has to pass through. I suggest you meet him a the ground transportation information counter near the baggage claim.


  • Help with connections
    Jan 30, 2013
    I'm traveling alone and I'm flying us airways express Ft 4142 into Phil then out on US Airway Fl 1939 to Fort Myers Fl . Can you tell me what terminal I will be arriving and what terminal I will be Departing? I only have 35 min !


    At PHL, US Airways & US Airways Express use Terminal A-East for domestic flights. You will arrive At Concourse A-East, which has gates A1-13. There, you simply walk to your next connecting gate (look at overhead screens & your boarding pass for gate number).


    Actually, that is completely incorrect. Your flight from Ithaca will arrive in Terminal F and your flight to Ft. Myers will probably depart from Terminal B. You need to take the post-security US Airways shuttle bus from gate F-14 to Terminal B/C. If by chance your Ft. Myers flight departs from Terminal A, take the shuttle to there instead. 35 minutes is pretty tight so hope your first flight is on time.


  • lax to ord then to crw
    Jan 30, 2013
    I am going from Los Angeles thru O'hare to Charleston W.V on March 4th.What terminal do I land at(fl 263) and where do I pick up the connecting flight(6093) to W.V. seeing that I will have very little time?


    At ORD, you will arrive / depart from either of the domestic terminals T1 (with B & C gates),T2 (with E & F gates) or T3 with G, H, K & L gates. Your ticket and the overhead screens on arrival will indicate flight and gate number. The ATS shuttle train runs every few minutes between the terminals, but in the unsecured area (at connecting terminal you would need to go through security before proceeding to your gate.


    Since United Express is the only airline that flies to Charleston WV from Chicago, you are flying them. Your flight from LAX will arrive in Terminal 1 and your flight to Charleston will depart from terminal 1 or 2 (probably 2). Worst case scenario is about a 15 minute walk between your gates if you move briskly. You will not have to go through security again.

    what is fastest way to go from C31 to E7 in Houston IHA


    If arriving at IAH at gates C29-45 and transferring to Terminal E: walk towards gates C14-24 and proceeds straight on to TE. TE has on opposie sides gates E1-11 and E12-24.


  • Terminal 5 to Terminal 1
    Jan 28, 2013
    Group of college students coming in from Heathrow on United connecting to domestic United flight out of Terminal 1. They have just over 90 minutes. Will that be enough time to go through customs, recheck their bags, and get to their Gate in Terminal 1? Terminal 5 Gate M16A > Terminal 1 Gate C24


    If their first flight is on time and they hurry, it's barely enough time. Customs can take anywhere between 10-30 mins. The transfer can take about 20 minutes between terminals, so that leaves 40-50 mins to go through security and get to their gate. Usually that's doable, but again, a little tight.


    On arrival at ORD and passing through passport check, picking up bags, go through customs clearance and re-check-in bags where indicated, (that can take anywhere from 30-50 mins!) you need to proceed oe level up the ATS train connecting to the domestic terminals 1, 2 & 3 (running every few mins). At T1, pass security check & then head for Concourse C (gates C1-32). Your time is sufficient.


  • Delta to FCO, Meridiana to Olbia
    Jan 27, 2013
    I arrive to FCO on Delta at 7:30 a.m. and must connect to Meridiana Flight to Olbia at 10:30a.m. Can you give me directions to make the connection? Thank you.


    At FCO Delta arrives at Terminal 5 where you need to go through passport check and may need to pick up your bags if Delta does not transfer bags to Meridian, which uses Terminal 2. You have two options to get to T2: (a) take the free shuttle bus outside running between terminals and carparks every 15 mins., or (b) take the special shuttle to T3 and walk over to T2 (the control tower is between them. You have plenty of time.


  • T5 to Bradley- Security
    Jan 27, 2013
    Hi, I've read through a lot of these comments and haven't really seen the answer I'm looking for, so sorry if this is redundant. I will be arriving at LAX at 9:30 in Terminal 5 and have a connection on Korean Air in Bradley. We are not checking any bags. Will I be able to simply walk from T5 to Bradley without going through security? If we have to go through security, does anyone know how long will it take approximately (9:30am on a Monday)? Any help is much appreciated!


    T-5 is not connected to Bradley Int'l. You will need to go thru security again in the Bradley terminal. patstravelreviews.com


    At LAX, you have two options to get from T5 to TBIT: (a) exit the terminal, then turn left, past T4, walk around the bend and enter TBIT (Bradley) - a 10-12 min. walk, (b) 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 are T6, T7, T8, around the bend to T1, T2, T3 and on to TBIT - 7 stops or 18 mins. In both instances, you need to go through passport check before proceeding to your gate: Past TSA Screening at left are gates 106 - 101; past TSA Screening at right are gates 119 to 123, with access to bus gates 136 to 146.


  • Connecting to a US Flight
    Jan 26, 2013
    I am traveling to Anaheim, California and I arrive in Vancouver at 9:26 having to transfer to my next flight before it takes off at 11am. is that enough time and also will I need to go through baggae claim, Checkin-in, security and customs?


    The nearest Airport to Anaheim is John Wayne Airport, 15 miles from its center. On arrival at Vancouver Airport go through US customs clearance before proceeding to your connecting gate. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/yvr, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • connecting international
    Jan 26, 2013
    i´ll arrive from los cabos/mexico fly UA1453 and i must to take a connection fly UA4142 to Nashville, at febraury 20..the questions are, what is this arrivall terminal? what is the terminal connection and how i get there in 50 minutes?


    United Airlines uses Terminals A, B, C & E (with A,B,C,E gates) of Houston Intercontinental Airport. The International Arrivals building can be accessed from both Terminal E & C, with separate US Customs. Arriving passengers go through customs & take the escalator down to Baggage Claim Level 1. From there they go through Exit Control and enter to the right the baggage recheck area, which also has an escalator down to the Inter-Terminal Train to Terminals A, B & C. On arrival at your departing terminal, you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. 50 mins. is VERY tight! Hurry!

  • from eithad airway to united
    Jan 25, 2013
    My parents are traveling on April 28 th 2013 from eithad airways coming from Abu Dubai @ 5.00 pm ... And then they have to catch united airline for Detroit and there is 2 hours lay over ... But i am not sure if it is enough time for them to catch there domestic flight ... Plz let me know , thanks .. both are separate tickets ..


    It will help if they check in online for their flight to DTW before they leave. Abu Dhabi. They will have to claim their baggage in T5, then take it to T1 and re-check it with United since they are on different tickets. (I'm assuming this connection is in Chicago). 2 Hours is doable, but tight to do all that.


  • Clearing customs with only carry-on
    Jan 25, 2013
    I have only carry-on, but need to clear customs after arriving United in Terminal E & then a very tight connection, United, also Terminal E. Help please as to the best way to do this.


    On arrival at IAH, after customs, you need to go through security check and then proceed to the gate area and your connecting gate (gates E1-E11 or E12-E24 at opposite sides).

    I am flying in on Delta from YOW (pre-cleared C&I) and connecting to FLL on Delta. Do I have to clear security again to make the connection?


    No, you don't have to go through security again. Pre-cleared flights from Canada are treated just like domestic flights.
