  • immigration and custom times

    What is the average time it takes for a US citizen with only carry on luggage to clear immigration and customs? Arriving June 17th at 5 PM

     

    It also depends what Terminal, but I would budget somewhere between 30 and 45 minutes.

    I am traveling from Dubai with Emirates to Canada through Houston, I am not holding an American nor Canadian passport, I have around 2 hours between flights, will this be enough to clear immigration, get my luggage and recheck it with and catch my flight with United to Canada? Thanks

     

    It should be enough time but doesn't leave much time for delays. If you have to transfer bags yourself you may have trouble meeting the baggage cutoff with United if there are long lines at immigration.

    Is 90 min long enough btw flights to get through customs? Arriving on Delta from Milan and connecting to SFO (also a Delta flight). We will not have checked baggage, and I believe both flights are terminal 2. Thanks!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time but doesn't leave much room for delays. Actually, both of your flights will be in Terminal 4.

    I have an international flight landing at 15:20 at terminal 4 and a connecting flight on American leaving at 17:55 terminal 8. My return flights have me arriving at terminal 8 at 16:45 and departing on an international flight at 19:00/ Is this sufficient time?

     

    It should be enough time, even if you have to transfer bags yourself, as long as there are no delays.

     

  • getting from US Airway terminal to United terminal

    Is a one hour delay enough time to get from US airway flight 662 arriving 10:10 am to United flight departing at 11:25 am

     

    Yes, it should be as long as you either don't have checked bags or they are checked through to United. I don't think you will have enough time if you have to transfer bags yourself.

    I will be landing in LAX in Southwest T1 at 10:05AM, and I have a Delta 11:25AM flight to make. Both flights are domestic (Southwest from Detroit and Delta to Detroit also) and I have no luggages to claim. Is there sufficient time to make the connection?

     

    Actually, Southwest from Phoenix

     

    It should be enough time if the first flight is on-time, but barely. It's a long walk/shuttle ride from T1 to T5. Definitely check-in online for your Delta flight before you leave Phoenix.

     

  • Is 2h and 20 min enough to change flights

    We are traveling from Copenhagen to Orlando through IAD. The tickets are not single reservations. The first reservation is a SAS flight and arrives at IAD 15:00 which I understand is not really peak hours but close to it. The second reservation from IAD to Orlando is with United and departs at 17:21. Do we have enough time to make the connection (2 adults and a toddler)? We are not US citizens (Swedish). It seems that we will clear US Immigration in the International Arrivals Building, then re-check our bags and go through security and take the AirTrain or Mobile Lounge to Concourse C or D. Have I understood this correctly? Most grateful!

     

    Yes, Even though you are on separate reservations, if you show your United confirmation to the SAS agent in Copenhagen he or she should be able to check your bags through to Orlando. That way you can just re-check your bags in the IAB. If your bags can't be checked through to Orlando you'll have to take them to the United counter in IAD and pay a checked bag fee.

     

  • transfer between terminals 5 and 7

    What, please, is the quickest way to get from terminal 5 to terminal 7? I have about a 2-hour window early in the morning (6-ish); I thought there would be plenty of time but some of the other comments about time needed are unnerving!

     

    Since all Terminal 5 arrivals are domestic you should have enough time. The only way between the two terminals is the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train which runs outside security.

    I have an 1 hour and 40 minute layover to get from terminal 3 to terminal 2. Is this sufficient time to re-enter security?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time.

    Decent selection of good wine and food quality I expected. The food is just ok, but exceptionally better than a packaged sandwich.

     

  • Fastest way to get from Terminal B to Terminal D

    Need to get from Terminal B to Terminal D quickly, what is the best way? We'll be arriving around 9:00 p.m.

     

    Are you connecting to another flight or meeting someone? I don't think there's time for a connection that late between those terminals. The only between them is on a shuttle bus that runs on the non-secure side of the terminal.

    How do I get from gate c30 to t4 and how long will it take? I have 50 min. between flights

     

    Somewhere between 10 and 20 minutes, depending on how fast you walk.

     

  • Do I have enough time??

    I am arriving at JFK from Chicago at 12:40pm on April 20th at terminal 2. I have a connecting flight to Moscow at 2:20pm out of terminal 1. Is 1hr and 40 min enough time!?

     

    Delta should be able to check your bags through in Chicago, so if your first flight is on-time you should be OK, but if there's any delays you'll be in trouble.

     

  • connections with delta in 39 min???

    I have a flight, pending if it is on time, arrival in terminal c, will I have enough time to make my connection in terminal D in under 39 min????

     

    It should be doable. All Delta gates at LGA are connected inside security.

     

  • Vcr Canada to IAH then Ft. Lauderdale-do I need to change terminals

    We're flying in with United from Vancouver Canada next month. Arrive at 12.25 PM, connecting flight to Ft. Lauderdale at 2.11 PM. What terminal do we arrive in and connect to? Do we have to claim luggage and go to another terminal or will our luggage be transferred by the airline? Ticket was purchased as one reservation.Will we be rushing to make the connection?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. You won't have to claim your luggage in Houston, it will be transferred automatically. Both of your flights will likely be in Terminal C. There's a chance one may be in Terminal E, but it's connected directly to C. You should have plenty of time to make your transfer.

     

    thank you!
