  • Time to Connect

    I'm arriving at IAH on United Flight UA807 on 5/15 at 1:40 PM and have 1 hour to connect with UA Flight 5227 at 2:45 PM. I'm a senior and handicapped. Will I have enough time to make the transfer? Are both of these flights in the same terminal?

     

    Flight 807 will arrive into Terminal C or E and 5227 will likely depart from Terminal B. You will have to take the TerminaLink train between the gates. I suggest you request wheelchair service from United (which you can do by calling them). If your first flight is on time you will have enough time for your connection.

     

    Thank you

    I am flying US Air from Atlanta to Seattle. I have to change planes in Phoenix with 1 hr and 10 minutes. Will this be an easy transition or am I going to have to run to make connections?

     

    If your first flight is on-time you'll have enough time without having to run.

     

    Thanks!!! Here's hoping the flight is on time!

     

  • How much time do I need to connect?

    I will be flying on United from Neward to LAX with a 1:22 connection time at IAH. I will have checked baggage. Is that enough time for them to transfer my luggage from one plane to the other? I'm not worried about myself because I know I won't have any problems in that time to walk from arrival gate to departure gate, but I am worried about my luggage. I don't know how much time it takes for them to transfer my luggage. Does anyone know if my bags will be able to make it to LAX at the same times as I do??

     

    That should be enough time for the luggage to transfer if your first flight is on-time or close to it.

    Hi, On monday May 13, 2013 I am arriving on flight 5249 to terminal B at 11:01am and my connecting flight is flight 1016 in terminal E at 11:46am (going to Cancun)...question is, will 45 minutes be enough time to make the connecting flight and can someone please navigate me where I need to go after I get off the plane to find our final destination flight?? Any other tips would be appreciative! Thanks! Very nervous! Terri

     

    You will have to take the terminalink train from the concourse B station the D/E station. You'll have to hurry but if your first flight is on-time you'll be OK. Also, United will have later flights if you miss your connection and Monday is typically a light travel day TO Cancun so it should be no problem being rebooked if you miss your connection.

     

    Thanks for the response...I have never missed a flight before (dont fly that often) but if we do miss the flight whether it be delay or because there wasnt enough time to get to the next connection, will the airline put us on another flight free of charge or will we have to pay?

    Is 1:15 hrs enough time to meet connection on a Sunday to GCM? US Customs preclearance is done at YYZ before being allowed to proceed to security? Flying US Airways on both legs.Thanks

     

    Yes, connections at CLT are pretty easy.

    We arrive from Toronto terminal F and leave for Dublin 1 and a half hours later from terminal A. All US Airways. Will our luggage be transferred? On return I understand we will have to go through immigration and get our luggage and get to terminal F for our flight to Toronto. We have 1 hour and 45 minutes...will we make it?

     

    Yes, you should have enough time.

    I will be arriving from Nassau with UA1462 at Teminal C and leave for Munich with UA106 from Terminal C 1 hour later. Do we need to collect the luggage or is it check through to Munich? Do we need to pass immigration/security or is the transfer within Terminal C without immigration? Can we make it in 1h? Thanks

     

    You will go through US Immigration Preclearance in Nassau. You will not have to touch your luggage in Newark. If your first flight is on-time 1 hr will be enough time.

     

  • Minimum changeover times

    We are 4 people arriving in LA from melbourne on qantas at 6.35am, flying to Mexico City on Aeromexico and want to change our 2.00pm flight to an earlier flight. What would the minimum changeover time be given customs etc.

     

    I would be comfortable booking a flight out after 9 AM. Aeromexico appears to have a 9:53 AM flight that looks quite doable.

     

    On arrival at LAX, you need to to through passport check, pick up your bags and go through customs clearance - allot 1 hr. If Qantas transfers your bags to Aeromexico flight (check with Qantas), you simply re-check in your bags - if not, you need to take your bags along and check them in at Terminal 5 (add 20 mins). While Qantas uses both Terminals T4 & the Bradley terminal (TBIT or TB), Aeromexico uses Terminal 5. If arriving at TBIT, exit the terminal and walk to the right to T4 and adjacent T5 where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate (a 10-min. walk). (Alternatively, you could 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.)

    Hi, I have 45 min of connection between flight in FRA terminal 1 on Sunday. I come from Barcelona and I go to San Francisco. I only have 45 minutes between flights. Can someone help or advice me about connections betweens gates? :P Thank you!

     

    If you arrive at and depart from the same Terminal 1 of FRA, you will use either Z, B or C gates; your transfer time should suffice. This is the Concourse layout: Concourse Z (on upper level of Concourse A) is divided into gates Z11-25 (left) and Z50-69 (right) - accessible from the Tunnel connecting A, Z & B Concourse B, gates B1-B63: a transfer tunnel near B19 connects to A & Z gates; the SkyLine train near B-8 connects to E & D gates of Terminal 2. C gates are on the opposite side of A, B & Z piers, accessible from level 2 of the main terminal, with separate gate areas holding gates C1-C9, and gates C13-20 (located near D gates D32-35.)

    We are UK citizens and arrive at 1.20pm on an air pacific flight from fiji, and would like to book a Spirit Airlines flight to Las Vegas, departing at 3.30pm. Is this enough time? We will have a checked backpack each.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. However, keep in mind that Spirit is a ULCC like Ryanair, so if you miss your flight don't expect any reaccomadation. I would probably recommend the 4 PM flight on Southwest instead.

    friend is flying into DTW gate A12 arriving at 707 and needs to get to gate C11 for flight that departs at 735 - how quick can he get there?

     

    It's possible - he'll have to run. You can do that connection in about 10-15 minutes if you move quickly.

     

  • Southwest to US Airways connection

    I arrive PHX @ 9:55 am on SW - depart @11:35 on US Airways. Will I have time to pick up my luggage from SW, and check-in with luggage with US Airways in time?

     

    If your first flight is on-time it should be enough time, but any delays and you could be in trouble.
