  • ORD connection from Terminal 5 to Terminal 2

    Hi...I have booked 2 tickets from Germany to Chicago (with Lufthansa) and then from Chicago to Greensboro (with United). I have only 1 hr and 20 mins to change our plane at chicago (to go from T5 to T2). Is that enough time (we need to pass the US customs and recheck bags and then security)? also Could you please provide us the exact guild-lines to reach T2 from T5 ?

    Hello, I'm scheduled to leave an Aeroflat flight at 2:20pm Thursday. I am looking to book an American Airlines flight from Pittsburgh to arrive at 1:29pm. Is this enough time to transfer terminals, go through security and board the 2:20 flight? I'll have only a backpack and carry-on and hope to have my boarding pass printed. Thanks!

     

    They use Terminal 1.

    hi, looking to fly to JFK from DC not checking any bags but flying out internationally. Will I have to exit to get my new boarding pass or can I get it at the gate and not have to go through security. Two separate airlines. Thanks.

    Hi We will be traveling from New Delhi to Frankfurt and on to Lisbon. All flights operated by Lufthansa. Our arrival time at Frankfurt is 0715 and departure to Lisbon at 0915. Will there be enough time and do we need to go through security again? Will be traveling with young children so please advice on walking distance/time to the connecting gate. Thanks in advance. AG.

     

  • Help! Connection from Term5 to Term 1

    We are moving back from Germany so we have a lot of bags and our pet. I am concerned about only a 2hr layover. Can someone tell me the sequence of events at O'hare? We must pick up our bags and pet, go through customs, recheck our bags and catch the train to term 2. Do we recheck our bags before we catch the train to term 2 or after. If after, how do I get a family of 4 plus a large dog carrier on the train since it only stps for a short period of time? Then on the term 2 end, are there carts available close to the train? Where would the baggage check be? Please tell me we recheck our bags on the term 5 International end.

    Hello. I am arriving Atlanta at 12:20 by delta and catching international flight to Japan at 2:08. My seat is 32A so I would assume it would take time for me to get out. I am getting nervous! Do you think 1hr 48min is enough time for transit? Please let me know! Thank youtgvg

     

  • Arrive Terminal 2 connect in Terminal 3

    Arrive from PHX in Terminal 2 and then connect to an Intl American Flight in Terminal 3. Can I get from Terminal 2 to Terminal 3 without having to go through security again - do the terminals connect inside the security zone/

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. You will go through US Immigration, claim your luggage, go through US Customs, then re-check your baggage with Delta at the re-check desk, then you can go to the departure level, go through security, and then take the Delta shuttle bus to T2 or you can take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train to T2 and go through security there.

    I am flying from JAX on Delta and then connecting through DEN for my flight on Frontier. These are two separate tickets. Is this enough time and are there kiosks on the gate side of security where I could check in for the Frontier flight? I will have only a carry on bag.

    We are flying from Indy to an ultimate destination of Cape Town. First leg of flight is fromIndy to Charlotte, then a connecting flight from Charlotte to JFK. We only have 45 minutes to change planes at Charlotte. Is this enough time? Do we need to recheck baggage?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. No you do not have to re-check baggage.

     

    Yes, if your first flight is on-time you should be OK. CLT is relatively small by hub airport standards and all gates are connected inside security.

     

  • Air Tahiti Nui to/from Southwest

    We arrive in LAX via Air Tahiti Nui at 10:15 with a connecting flight on SWA at 1:50. Unfamiliar with the process from Tahiti, have I given myself enough time for the entire process? Thank you!

     

    Yes, you should have plenty of time. You will arrive in the TBIT, go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, and go through US Customs. Then you will have to take your baggage with you to T1 either via the inter-terminal shuttle bus that runs on the lower level or via walking along the curbfront on either the upper or lower level. You would walk to the left as you exit the TBIT (against the flow of traffic). You will then have to check your bags with Southwest, get your Southwest boarding passes, and go through security.

    I am flying with an infant coming from Cleveland with and 1 hour layover in iad on our way to stbthomas. Both flights are with united. Will one hour be enough to get to my connecting flight?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in Concourse A, C, or D and depart from C or D. If you arrive in A you will have to take the aerotrain or mobile lounge to C or D.

     

  • Don't know which terminal?

    I am flying Delta Airlines, from Orlando to Springfield through Atlanta. I have 53 min layover on my way going and 42 min on my return. Any idea about the terminal route? Departure: MCO>ATL (DL2269) ATL>SGF (DL5056) Return: ATL>SGF (DL5056) MCO>ATL (DL2269)

     

    Delta uses numerous concourses which are all connected by the Plane Train inside security. You can get between all gates in less than 25 minutes. You don't have much room for delays but if your first flight is on-time you should be fine.

     

    Should be fine

    I am flying from Trinidad to orlando via American Airlines, there's a connection in Miami. The layover is about 2 hours, however the ticket was purchased as one ticket on AA website(I didn't book each flight separately). I know I will be pressed for time. Can anybody explain to me the procedure with regards to collecting and checking in baggage and immigration and security?

     

    You will arrive, be funneled towards immigration, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the re-check desk with American. Then you will go up to the departure level and go through security and to your departure gate which will be in the same terminal.

     

  • Where do I spend time in Customs?

    Hello, I fly tomorrow from Portland ME to DTW Airport and transfer to a Toronto flight. Is my first travel leg considered national or international? Will I need to allow time in Portland to go through customs or will that all happen in Detroit where I have a 45 min connection time.

     

    You will go through Canadian immigration when you get to Toronto. All you have to do in DTW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
