  • need help with connecting info
    Feb 10, 2014
    I usually never fly with connections as I try to get non stop but I am going from Knoxville to las vegas and have no other choice. I want to avoid charlotte, Chicago, DC, and anything north of Knoxville for that matter. I have united 4123 to Houston and connecting to united 1697 to las vegas with 1 hour and 4 minute layover if everything goes as planned. I have never been to Houston airport before so can someone shed some light on this flight and let me know what I need to expect to make my connecting flight on time. Also, if I miss the connection, are there plenty of flights during the day that I can change to going to vegas? This flight is for February 11th. Thanks so much for any help!


    You will likely arrive in Terminal B and depart from Terminal C. All Terminals at IAH are connected inside security by the TerminaLink train. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time. United has six more flights after 1697 on Feb 11 that you can be rebooked on if you miss your connection (and Tuesday flights to Vegas usually aren't completely full).


  • Enough Connection Time?
    Feb 10, 2014
    Will be arriving at Terminal 5 coming from Montego Bay at 4:40 PM. Connecting flight leaves from Terminal 1 at 6:00 PM. Is this enough time?


    It'll be tough. Where are you flying to and on what airline(s)?


    Flying on United 1705 from Montego Bay, returning to Springfield, MO on United flight 3416


    If you don't have checked bags you should have enough time if your first flight is on-time. Check the monitors or united.com on your mobile device to see what terminal your gate to Springfield will depart from - it will likely depart from concourse E or F of Terminal 2 but it could depart from Terminal 1. If you have checked bags you will have to claim them after immigration, go through customs, and then re-check them in Terminal 5, then take the ATS train to Terminal 2 or 1, then go through security and to your gate. Everything will have to go very smoothly to have enough time if you have checked bags.

    thats not 45 mins....


    Yes, I did a mistake.I arrive at 9:45am and I have to leave at 10:30am. Is that 45 min? Thanks


    Your transfer time is quite sufficient!

    Hi-- I'm flying in on June 11 on flight UA5842 and leaving on flightUA371. I have an hour and tweety minute layover. Is that enough time to make connections? Thanks


    Yes, if UA5842 is a domestic flight then you should have enough time. All United gates at ORD are connected inside security.


  • how much time for customs?
    Feb 9, 2014
    We are arriving at T5 on Turkish Airlines at 6:50 pm and need to catch a flight that night to San Francisco. How much time should we allow to get through customs and to get our departing gate for AA or United? We are not checking bags, carry-ons only. Thanks!


    I would leave about 2 hours which is about perfect because both of those airlines likely have a flight to SFO that leaves at about 9 PM.

    We are flying Southwest into Phoenix on 4/27/14. We land at 7:55am and transfer to another southwest flight to Orange County airport leaving at 8:30am. Will we have enough time to make our connecting flight?


    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that should be enough time. All Southwest flights in PHX are in the C and D concourse of Terminal 4 and connected beyond security.


  • Minimum connection btw bahams and domestic
    Feb 9, 2014
    Hi all, we have to reserve our flight for the next summer vacations and we have a flight from Bahamas to Tampa with an 1 hour 35 min stop in atlanta. Is this enough? Thank you!


    Yes, that should be enough time. If you are coming from Freeport or Nassau you will actually pre-clear US Immigration and customs there vs. in Atlanta. All concourses in Atlanta are connected inside security by the Plane Train.

    I'm arriving from Dubai on Emirates Airlines, must clear customs, then board a US airways domestic flight. Does US Airways re-check baggage in the customs area for continuing travel, or must I go to the ticket counter in the main terminal?


    Were your tickets bought on one reservation or separate. If they were on the same reservation Emirates should be able to check your bags through to US Airways and then you can drop at the re-check desk, Otherwise it's not too difficult to just take your baggage up to the departure level and the US Airways ticket counter.


  • Flight information on a connection
    Feb 8, 2014
    Hi, how can I know where my arrival flight and departure flight are listed (terminal and concourse) because I have 45 minutes between each? Have my flights with Delta there are my flight numbers DL1747 DL1072 ! Thanks


    Delta uses numerous concourses at ATL. All are connected inside security by the Plane Train. If your first flight is on-time 45 minutes should be enough time.


  • PHX to YUM - 28 min layover
    Feb 8, 2014
    Anyone done this one recently? Arrive in PHX 07:52, leave for YUM 08:20. Will I have to run b/w flights to make it?


    Is your arriving flight also on US Airways? If so you can make it but you'll have to run. If not you have no chance.


  • Connection and immigration
    Feb 9, 2014
    we are flying from BFS-EWR-MCO. We have a 4 hour connection in EWR both flights with United. Do we have to collect our luggage and check it in again? Do we go through immigration in EWR or MCO? Will we have to change terminals? I have never flown into EWR. Thanks


    On the way to Orlando, in Newark, you will arrive in Terminal B or C, go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, and go through US Customs then re-check your bags. Your flight to Orlando will depart from C. If you arrive in B you should take the AirTrain to C then go through security and to your gate. If you arrive in C then you can just go up to the departure level, through security and to your gate. On your return trip, you will not have to do any immigration until you get back to Belfast and both flights should be in Terminal C in EWR. 4 Hours should be plenty of time for both connections.


    Thank you for a great response, eases my worries as we have 3 young kids with us.


  • Dallas Passport Check
    Feb 8, 2014
    Requesting information. 2/10/15 fly on American at 8ish from Puebla, Mexico to Dallas, Tx. After landing at Dallas, what is the route inside Dallas airport to passport check and customs that I need to take? From Dallas, I will be flying to Columbia, South Carolina. Any help and information is greatly appreciated.


    Date correction. Flight is 2/10/14


    You will arrive in Terminal D, go through US Immigration, claim your checked baggage (if you have any), go through US Customs, then re-check your bags with American. Then you will go up to the departures level and go through security and then take the SkyLink train to your departure gate which will likely be in Terminal B.


    Thank you very much, sir :-)

    going from a United flight to local skywest flight is it in the same terminal


    United Express flights operated by SkyWest use both Terminal 3 and Terminal 1. United runs a shuttle bus inside security between them.


  • United Airlines Flight 4130
    Feb 7, 2014
    Please advice if there are people that can help my wife on United Airlines Flight 4130 , she is carrying several pieces of luggage and a 2 YO boy, seems a little too much for a single 5' 2 woman to carry, she landed at terminal D and will need to get to terminal B or so I read on her Columbus, OH bound flight... is it complicated to move between terminals?? Please advice


    Were her tickets bought on a single reservation? If so after customs she should be able to re-check her bags and therefore not have to take them with her to her departure Terminal. Also, even if she does have to go to the United ticket counter to check her bags, she can do that in Terminal E, which is connected to D, rather than having to take them all the way to B. She can then go through security in E and take the TerminaLink train to B.


    I bought the tickets for her , she flew in from GDL MX and landed, I have been in and out many times from IAH but can not remember if there is a shuttle , which you just confirmed there is. I guess after clearing customs she will need to go get her luggage and turn it in to the airline as you mentioned, I am just wondering if there are airline (United) people that can help with the luggage, and if the E to B will not take long.


    Yeah, if it's all on united she can just re-check her bags after she clears customs, she won't have to take everything to B with her. There are carts in Immigration that she can use in between claiming her baggage and re-checking it with United.


  • Do I need to clear US Customs
    Feb 6, 2014
    Hi, arriving from SYD on United at Terminal 6 and connecting to YVR at terminal 2. Do I need to clear US custom, recheck my bags and rescreen security at LAX? i.e. I cannot buy any liquid duty free items at SYD? Thanks


    Yes, you will have to do all that stuff. If you buy any liquid duty free items you can put them in your checked baggage before you re-check it. Also, you will arrive in Terminal 7, not 6, but the difference there is negligible.


    Do you think 2.5 hrs be enough for the transfer? thanks


    Yes, you should have plenty of time.


    Thanks so much for your help ZAP. Greatly appreciated. Not sure why there is no inside transfer :-(


    LAX wasn't designed to be an international connecting hub. Luckily the weather in LA is usually nice, so you might enjoy the fresh air after the long flight from Australia.
