    If I am flying with Delta should i go to terminal D or E because i am going out of D10 but they said their ticketing services are in E ?


    At PHL, Delta's ticketing counter is in Terminal E, while gates and baggage claim are in TD; After check-in at TE, use the moving walkway connector to TD - follow signs, which has gates 1-16.


  • security at t7
    Sep 18, 2012
    I hope someone can help me here ,I will be arriving from Auckland to LAX in October,Now I understand that I have to clear customs and irrigation and thats all good,but what I want to know is how is security at Terminal 7? I wish to avoid the Nude O Scopes and only proceed through the metal detectors,does anyone have any recent first hand experience that they can pass on to me that would be fantastic, have never flown into LA so the more info I have the better Cheers


    I would not worry too much about the 'Nood O Scopes' - they have made improvements where body parts are no longer 'detailed'. However, you quote Terminal 7 (one of nine terminals at LAX) - this must be your connecting terminal, as it only serves domestic flights of Great Lakes & United Airlines. Do open & open "Terminal Map", then scroll down to the detailed text which should give you a good idea as to 'irrigation' (immigration) procedures and transfer options. Note: Qantas uses T5 & TBIT; Air NZ T2; Cathey Pacific TBIT - Cheers!


  • BWI Restaurants - Southwest Terminals
    May 6, 2013
    I'm flying into BWI as part of a layover when I go on vacation next month. Since I'll be there for roughly 2-1/2 hours, I'd like to find a nice sit down restaurant where I can have dinner, relax and pass the time. Went on Yelp & saw Phillips seafood (got low ratings) and Silver Diner (Concourse B & great ratings). Anyone ate at those, or can you recommend some place else? Thanks!


    I haven't been to the Silver Diner in BWI, but the Silver Diner is a nice small independent restaurant chain with good food.


    Definitely Silver Diner. Fun, fast, inexpensive with juke box music. Haven't eaten dinner there but breakfast and lunch always. Philips Seafood is a Maryland institution known for crab cakes. Expensive. As a native Marylander we go out of our way to not eat at any of their restaurants. (The Ocean City one is a tourist must, I guess.) Don't know availability of cocktails at the Diner, if that's important. Lots of fast food places nearby. But we always arrive early enough for our flights just so we can go to the Diner. (And welcome to MD!)


  • International - Domestic Change Time
    Sep 17, 2012
    Hi all-- I'll be arriving on a CX flight from HK (T7) with no bags and need to get myself very quickly to a Delta flight to Boston. What is the shortest amount of time this can be done? How bad are the domestic security lines at the Delta terminal?


    As an international arrival at JFK you need to go through passport check (then most likely need to have your carry-on bag examined by Customs) before you can proceed via Airtrain (serving pre-security areas of all terminals) to either domestic terminals 2 or 3 (both served by Delta - watch the overhead screen for your connecting terminal/ gate. The Airtrain runs 24/7 - between midnight and 4am every 15 mins; between 4-7:30am every 7 mins; between 7:30am-3pm every 10 mins; between 3pm-8pm every 7 mins; between 8pm & midnight every 15 mins. T2 has gates 19-29; T3 gates 1-18.


  • 52 min to get to connect
    Sep 26, 2012
    I am changing planes in Houston to Paris in only 52 minutes. Terminal C to Terminal E. I've been advised to carry on my bag, and not check it through to Paris. Do I have to go through customs in Houston?


    Only international arrivals at U.S. need to go through customs clearance. On arrival at IAH, Terminal C - f arriving at gates C29-45 and transferring to Terminal E: walk towards gates C14-24 and proceeds straight on to TE. The left-side gateway of TE has gates E1- E11, while to the right are gates E12 - E24. Your time is sufficient.


    Arriving from Sfo by a domestic flight UA737 on september 30, I have a connecting flight UA32 to Paris with a connecting time of 57 minute. My question do i have time for some purchase at duty free shop if any at te airport, or does UA have the duty free sale on board. many thanks


  • Transfer from Terminal A or C to TB
    Sep 17, 2012
    Can you clarify a couple of questions: --Is it possible to transfer via AirTrain from Terminal C or A to Terminal B post-security (without going through security again)? --is it possible to walk from C or A to B? How far is it and is there a sidewalk for pedestrians?


    All three terminals at EWR are not accessible by sidewalk. They are, however, connected by the Airtrain, which serves the terminals' pre-security areas - meaning you need to go through security check at your connecting terminal before proceeding to your gate. The Shuttle Bus from Terminal C to Terminal A stops at gateway C1, near gate C71.


  • connection time
    Sep 17, 2012
    if i arrive in philadelphia from england uk and am on a connecting flight to charlotte -will 1 hr 35 be enough time for me to get through security etc on or around 19th october


    All international arrivals need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance, and (if proceeding with journey) re-check-in bags. Do make sure your first airline will transfer bags to the connecting airline's flight - if not you need to take your bag and check it in at the connecting terminal. Open and click on 'Terminal Map' - then scroll down to the text to find your arriving and departing terminal and how to connect.


  • Is there time to make connecting flight?
    Sep 16, 2012
    On 20 Oct we are flying Delta Flt 1969 to Detroit Connecting with Delta Flt 2048 to NYC LaGuardia. We have approx 50 minutes Between flights. Is that enough time?


    Delta uses the McNamara Terminal, which has Concourses & corresponding gates A, B & C. Your ticket and the overhead screens on arrival at DTW will indicate flight number & gate. This is the concourse layout: Concourse A, reached from level 2, has 1.5 miles of moving walkways . Additionally, the Express Tram stops at the South station near gate A11, the Terminal station in the center near the water feature, and the North station near gate A67. Concourse A has to the left gates A38-A1; to the right gates A40-78, and at its center the tunnel connecting to Concourse B to the left and Concourse C to the right. Concourse B at right has gates B1-21on opposite sides. Concourse C at left has C1 through C43 on opposite sides. An elevator between Concourses B & C leads to the Lower Level gates C1 to C7. 50 mins will suffice for transfer.


  • Terminal A to Terminal C
    Sep 23, 2012
    Later in Oct I will arrive at KEWR TA on UAL from Halifax, NS Canada and have 1 hour with my wife and 4 kids to get to a UAL flight in TC to Vegas. What's the best way to transfer, to avoid security if possible?


    At YHZ Halifax Airport, make sure you go through US customs clearance. On arrival at EWR, you may either stay at Terminal A or will have to transfer to Terminal C (United uses both terminals for specific domestic flights. To connect you can take the AirTrain (serving pre-security, non-sterile areas of all terminals and free within the Airport) and get off at your connecting terminal within minutes - or you can also take the shuttle bus from TA to TC, however to get to your connecting gate you need to go through security check first. You have enough time.


    Thanks for your help. I read in several places that UA's shuttle service operated between terminals post-security to avoid the security checks again.

    I arrive from Israel at 4:40 pm and need to make a 6:30 pm flight to Raleigh on USAir. Is it doable?


    All international arrivals come in at Terminal B of EWR Airport; thereafter they need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs & re-check-in bags. However, if your Israel flight is with a different airline, make sure it will transfer your bags to US Airways - if not, you need to take your bags along to Terminal A, the domestic terminal & check them in with US Airways - TA can be reached by the AirTrain at pre-security (follow signs) within minutes, but you need to go through security check at TA before proceeding to your gate. Your time is adequate.


  • Concourse A to third level parking
    Sep 15, 2012
    How do you get from Concourse A to the parking garage to catch a taxi


    From Concourse A you need to get to the Main Terminal's ticketing level: The ticket counters 1 to 6 correspond to the skybridge numbers leading to the parking garage.

    we have 95 mins gap between arrival at LAX from HNL into Terminal 2 (Hawaiin Airlines) and connecting flight from Terminal B to LHR (British Arways). We are a family of 5 and I have been told subsequently that it is tight - we cammot change our tickets. As we are British will it take longer to connect? Will we make it? How much time could we save if we only have carry ons? Why do we have to collect our bags in between flights? I am panicking even though the flight is not until next July. Please help.


    Since you are considered a domestic arrival at LAX (only on your return from UK you will be an international arrival & need to go through customs procedure) you can immediately head to the Terminal 2 exit and 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 will be T3, and around the corner to TB (by that time the new Bradley terminal (TB or TBIT) should be completed, being built behind the present one). You simply enter TB and pass security check and you are on to your gate. As to baggage: You need to find out if Hawaiian is transferring your checked bags to British airlines; also check their 'baggage' or 'luggage' listing for their pricing of each bag (which constantly changes). Review their freight rules and charges for comparison. As a general rule, airlines charge a set amount for each of the first 2 bags, not over 50 lbs, with higher charges for each following bag. Note that if Hawaiian does not forward bags to British airlines, you would need to take along your bags and re-check them in at TB. Even with that scenario, you should be able to make your connection on time.


  • baggage pick up
    Sep 15, 2012
    i am meeting my son who is arriving at terminal E. Does he go to termainal C to pick up baggage?


    If you arrive by car at IAH, note that the access road passes first Terminals D & C, which are connected, followed by Terminals B & A, the road then makes a turn and passes the south side of Terminals A, B & C, and then gets to Terminal E, which connects to Terminal D located on the opposite side. Terminal E includes Federal Inspection. Meet your son at TE, level 1, in the lobby, which has a passenger greeting area. NOTE: IAH also has a Cell Phone Lot ('Passenger Pickup Lot')--stay with your vehicle until your party has gathered luggage and calls you to be picked up at the curb. To access the lot, whether you're approaching the airport using John F. Kennedy Boulevard or Will Clayton Parkway, just follow the purple signs to the entrance.


  • Connecting flight
    Oct 17, 2012
    Is one hour long enough to make a connecting flight on AA from LIT to CDG? Do the bags check all the way through or do I have to pick them up and take them to international scty?


    You most likely arrive at ORD Airport at the domestic Terminal 3, and depart from its international Terminal 5. The ATS shuttle train runs every few minutes between Terminal 5's ATS level the and domestic terminals 1, 2 & 3. At Terminal 5, Concourse M with M gates wraps around the concessions Court to the left (gates M12-M21) and to the right (gates M7-M1), and extends northward in the center to gates M8-M11 (prepare yourself for long walks from check-in to gates). AA will transfer bags to connecting flight. You have enough time.


    Actually, you will both arrive and depart from Terminal 3 on your outbound journey to CDG. On the return, you will have to go from Terminal 5 to Terminal 3. All AA flights (domestic and international) depart from Terminal 3.


  • Gate for Lufthansa to Rio de Janeiro
    Sep 14, 2012
    Hi, I am going to fly to Rio de Janeiro by Lufthansa on 17th of December from Delhi. I will land at FIA at 7 am. I have 3 hours of transition at the Frankfurt International Airport (FIA). Which gate should I go for departure to Rio?


    At FRA on arrival you need to go through non-Schengen (foreign) passport check. Lufthansa uses Concourses A & B of Terminal 1. (A gates were temporarily renumbered to Z gates 11-25 due to ongoing construction there); B gates remain B gates - On arrival look at overhead screens to find your flight number and gate. The SkyLine trains leave every 2-3 minutes, stopping at T1's Concourses A & B. You have plenty of time.
