  • TS to TI in 42 minutes?
    Feb 26, 2013
    1
    I have to get from the south domestic terminal (TS) to the international terminal (TI) in 42 minutes - what're the chances???

     

    At ATL, all Concourses - domestic & international - are connected by the underground 'Plane Train' stopping at the center of each Concourse with escalator & elevator up to Concourse level. Transfer time is tight. For more information I suggest you open www.ifly.com/atl, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

     

  • Changing Terminal from T6 to T7
    Feb 26, 2013

    Hi I hope somebody can help me...This is my first time to travel to the US enroute to Albany, NY. I will be flying in from New Zealand via United Airlines and will arrive at Terminal 6 at 10.10am on 5 April and my connecting flight to Chicago O'Hare is from Terminal 7 at 11.45am.. Do I have enough time to go through all the procedures?... Also, if somebody is familiar and can give me a run through of how and where I should go to upon arrival at the terminal so I can figure out where I will be heading to for the procedures, will be much appreciated. Thank you very much for helping out... Cheers

     

    1. I suppose you have booked your flight with United, which uses Terminal 6 at LAX.On arrival at LAX you need to go through passport check, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance and re-check-in your bags; thereafter go back to the departures level, go through security check and on to your gate. No time to waste! T7 has gates 70-77. On arrival at ORD, United uses domestic Terminal 1 (B gates B1-22,C gates C1-332) or Terminal 2 (E gates E1A-15; F1-14). If you need to transfer between T1 & T2 at ORD (O'Hare), you can connect in the secured area without going through security check. For more information I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

    During a 5-hour layover we want to meet with friends who live in the Newark area. Is there a place we can meet for dinner and conversation with poeple who aren't taking flights? Thanks.

     

    Open http://www.ifly.com, then click on EWR Airport Services under QUICK LINKS and choose "Restaurants & Stores", then click on your terminal.

    I have 40 minutes to get from D35 to B9 tomorrow. Will that be OK?

     

    On arrival at ATL at Concourse D, take the elevator or escalator down to the underground 'Plane Train' stopping at the center of each Concourse. At Concourse B, go up again and follow signs to gate B9 (B19-36 and B18-B1 are on opposite sides) Hurry!.

    My daughtr (18) is flying 1st time alone from ATL-PHX-Palm Desert on united. Are all United gates close to each other in PHX or should I seek assistance for her? thx, nervous Mom

     

    She will arrive at & depart from PHX from the same Terminal 2, which has separate gates 1 to 13 and gates S & D near shoeshine. On arrival at PHX, she should look at the overhead screens to find her connecting flight and gate number. Piece of cake!

     

    Note that United doesn't fly EITHER of those routes (I assume you mean Palm Springs, there's no such place as Palm Desert). Your daughter is probably on US Airways. It's fairly easy to make connections on US Airways in Phoenix.

     

    Yes United does serve PHX open http://www.united.com/web/en-US/apps/booking/flight/searchRT.aspx?HP=1

     

    United flies to Phoenix, but they do not Fly Atlanta-Phoenix or Phoenix-Palm Springs.

     

  • 45 Min Connection for Cancun Flight
    Feb 25, 2013
    1
    My family and our 2 toddler are flying from BWI to IAH and have a 45 min layover to connect with our United Flight to Cancun. Will we be able to make the connection? Is there a way to know if we are in the same terminal or not? Moving quickly with 2 toddlers is not easy since we have to wait for our stroller to be brought up etc.

     

    Your Cancun flight will depart from Terminal E and your Baltimore flight will arrive into C or E, both of which are fairly close to one another. If your flight is on time, you can make your connection. Also, during this time of year there are many flights from Houston to Cancun, so if you miss your connection and aren't currently on the last flight, chances are you can be rebooked.

     

  • Quick Visit

    I am flying though O'Hare with about 3 hours layover. Trying to do a quick visit and meal with a family member; what are the options outside of security?

     

    Open www.ifly.com/ord, then click on "ORD Airport Services" under QUICK LINKS & choose "Restaurants & Stores"

     

    I tried that, terminal 3 restaurants all say after security. It will be difficult for me to have a meal with a family that lives in Chicago I guess we can just sit somewhere and talk

    Any idea when construction will be complete? Making a connection from Terminal D to Terminal C on March 18th with two children. is two hours enough time?

     

    On arrival at TD, exit terminal & catch the shuttle bus Route A in front of the arrivals level to TC; the bus runs every 10-15 mins. At LGA, TC is presently adding restaurants & eateries & overhaul of Sky Club; TD & TC will be connected by a foot bridge. Both C & D get expanded security lanes - all within the 'next few months'.

  • Transfer between Concourse H and C
    Feb 25, 2013

    I am arriving on Spirit airlines in Term 4 Concourse H at 9:30am. I depart FLL at 11:10am on Airtran. How long will it take me to go from point A to point B??

     

    I depart Concourse C on Airtran at 11:10am. How much time do I need??

     

    Is your Spirit arrival domestic or international? Are you checking a bag? If it's international and you're checking a bag I think it will be really tight. If it's domestic and you just have carry ons, it will be doable.

     

    Domestic with carry on. Do you know the quickest way to get to Con C from Con H? Thanks for you help.

     

    You have enough of time! You arrive at Terminal 1, Concourse C; go down to the lower level of the terminal entrance/exit & catch the free shuttle bus to your connecting Terminal 4, where you need to go through security check and on to Concourse H (gates H1-H10).

     

    You can walk around the Curbside dropoff area but it's a pretty long walk. There's also a shuttle that runs between all the terminals that operates on the lower level (runs 6 AM to 9 PM).

    sin-sfo arrv 12:45pm SQ....connect on Frontier dep 2:35pm..Is there enough time to make it to immigr/customs and hv time to check in to frontier.

     

    You arrive at the International Terminal (IT or TI) where you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag: Onward passengers will exit Arrivals Hall through dedicated doors indicating 'Connecting Flights', where they will re-check in bags at the baggage desk directly outside of the exit. However, if you need to take your bags along to check them in with Frontier, you may have a problem time-wise. Your connecting flight with Frontier is in Terminal 1, which has Boarding Area B (gates 20-39). The Blue-line of the AirTrain (automated people mover) serves all terminals, making a continuous loop and taking only minutes between stops. On arrival at T1 you need to go though security check before proceeding to your gate.

    I fly into O'Hare on Spirit and then fly out on American Eagle. I have to collect baggage and re-ticket, will I be able to get to American ticket counter from baggage claim area?

     

    All you have to do is go up the escalator from the baggage claim level to the ticketing level of Terminal 3.

     

  • Baggage Change from United to Express?
    Feb 24, 2013

    We will arrive in Terminal 1 on United with 1 hr 46 min to switch to Terminal 2 for a United Express flight. Do we need to do anything with our baggage because of the switch and if so, how does that work and will we have enough time?

     

    As both flights are United flights you won't have to worry about your bags. On arrival at ORD, jst follow signs to the ATS train, which runs every few minutes between the terminals. Terminal 2 has Concourses E & F with corresponding gates. The screens above will show you flight & gate numbers.

     

    That is incorrect - Do NOT take the ATS between T1 and T2. You can easily walk between the two. Taking the ATS will mean you will have to go through security again, which isn't necessary if you walk. You have plenty of time.

     

  • 30 Min Layover in 7
    Feb 24, 2013

    We're flying from Hawaii to Chicago with only 30 minutes at LAX. We're flying into 7 and out of 7 so it should be simple enough but we've never been to LAX. Will that be enough time and do we have to deal with any security procedures or anything like that to slow us down? We shouldn't have to transfer bags since they're both United flights, but any advice would be great.

     

    On arrival at LAX, at Terminal 7, which has gates 70A-71B, 72 & 73 & 74A-77B - just follow signs - you have enough time.

    I have a 46 min layover and the flight lands at Terminal 2. Departing flight departs from Terminal 3, no info on the gates yet. Is this enough time and how far apart are terminals 2 & 3?

     

    On arrival at ORD, at Terminal 2, you can take the ATS shuttle train, which runs every few minutes between Terminal 5 and domestic terminals 1, 2 & 3; however, you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate. Note that T3 has four concourses - G, H, K & L - all with corresponding gates. 46 mins. is very tight.

     

    DO NOT take the ATS train, you will have to go through security again if you do. You can instead simply walk from T2 to T3 beyond security. However, a T2 to T3 connection is very rare, considering that T2 is United Express, Air Canada, Delta, and US Airways, while T3 is American, Virgin America, JetBlue, WestJet, Air Choice One, and Spirit. Are you sure you need to connect from T2 to T3?

     

    Sorry I was wrong, it is a T2 to T1 connection. The airliner is United and I'm arriving from GRR and departing to SFO. You recommend to walk still and again will this be enough time?

     

    Yes. It is very easy to walk between T2 and T1. Also some GRR united express flights use terminal 1.
