  • united connection with customs
    May 7, 2013
    I'm looking at booking a United flight from Calgary to Buffalo connecting in Chicago--time between flights is 52 minutes--will that be enough time to go through customs and get from terminal 1 to terminal 2?


    You will go through US immigration in Calgary. Both of your flights may be in Terminal 1, both may be in Terminal 2. If you can tell me the flight numbers and/or operating carriers I can help you with where the gates will likely be. Regardless, Terminal 1 and 2 are connected beyond security.


    Thanks! Right now the itinerary says that the flight from calgary lands in one and leaves to buffalo from 2--I thought i would have to do the US customs in Chicago since I had to do it in Minnesota connecting from Paris on my last international trip.


    That's because you were coming FROM Paris. Major Canadian airports have pre-clearance for flights to the U.S. Again, if you share your flight numbers and/or operating carriers I can help you determine what terminal your flights will likely be in.


  • Enough time between flights?

    My husband & I are flying for the first internationally from Atlanta to Greece with a 1 hr layover at JFK. Our flight from Atlanta arrives in and departs from JFK to Athens in Terminal 3. We will be traveling Delta all the way. Will we have enough time between flights? Also, will we have to retrieve our baggage and recheck them thru?


    If your first flight is on-time you will have enough time. You will not have to do anything with your baggage in JFK on the way TO Greece.

    have 40 min is this enough time as I can't run


    Take the Airtrain to your next departure area. For terminal & gate details,I suggest you open www.ifly.com/atl then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • Wherer is Terminal B - gate D1?
    May 8, 2013
    Tracking my American connection flight shows it consistently leaving out of terminal B gate D1, but no terminal maps shows a D1 in terminal B. It shows the gates starting a D2. Could the terminal maps be out dated? Is D1 really in terminal B?


    LGA's Terminal B has Concourses A through D, with corresponding gates. Gate D1 of Concourse D must have re-opened gate D1 just recently.


    Thank you for your reply. I've tracked this particular flight recently and it consistantly leaves out of Terminal B, Concourse D, gate 1. It's just odd that terminal maps (including this website's) shows no gate D-1 in terminal B.

    I arrive Detroit (DTW) on Delta at 2:45 pm terminal EM and depart on Delta terminal EM terminal 1 for Narita (NRT) at 3:35 pm. Do I have enough time?


    If your first flight is on-time, yes. Connections in DTW on Delta are very simple.


  • connecting flight to Dublin aer lingus
    May 6, 2013
    I have 1 hr and 8 minutes to make connecting flight and change terminals...is that enough time?


    forgot to tell you flying in from Portland via Jet Blue to JFK connect to dublin aer lingus to birmingham england


    You will not have to change terminals, both flights will be in Terminal 5. Thus, if your first flight is on-time you should have enough time.


  • 40 minute connection in Terminal 1
    May 7, 2013
    Will I make a 40 minute connection at ORD? My flight from MSP arrives at 7:22 AM and my connection to SJO Costa Rica leaves at 8:15 AM. Not sure which specific gates are involved but if this is all within Terminal 1, will I make the connection? Also, will my luggage make it?


    Are both flights on United? If so then yes, both should be in Terminal 1 and should should barely have enough time.


    Both flights are United. I am seated in row 2 of my first flight so hopefully I could get out soon and run to my next gate. Will the luggage make it though?


    I can't guarantee it, but usually bags can make any reasonable connection that a person can.

    Arriving from Nuremberg 20th may at 15.35. Next flight leaves at 16.15 to Aberdeen via KLM. Is this enough time for me and my luggage? Hopefully luggage can go without me collecting.


    Yes, since Nuremberg and Amsterdam are all within Schengen you won't have any immigration on arrival in Amsterdam. It should be enough time. AMS is built for tight connections.


  • Terminal and Check In Questions.

    I arrive in Washington( IAD) at 9:10 pm. My connecting flight is to san fran(SFO) and leaves at 10:15pm. Both Flights are with United Airlines. Will that be enough time to do what I need to do? Also what terminal does United Airlines operate out of? Will I have to get to another terminal to get on my connecting flight? Also Do I have to chexk in and go through security again once I get to IAD or just go straight to my terminal and find my gate? Do gates usually change with less than an hours time? I am a first time flyer with connections and I am a little worried and I am trying to get all the info I can before I leave. Thank you so much!!


    Is your flight into IAD Domestic or International. If it's domestic you'll just have to walk between your gates on the C/D concourse if you are on United mainline and possibly the A concourse if you're on United Express (where you'll have to take the Aerotrain or shuttle bus to C/D) Either way you won't have to go through security again.


    My first flight is from Atlanta to Washington. Its like a united Express flight. So I will more than likely have to take the shuttle bus or aerotrain. Are those things hard to find? Where are they located were I can get on and off of them?


    They're not hard to find, just follow the signs to the C concourse. If your first flight is on-time you'll have enough time.


  • meeting passenger during connections
    May 6, 2013
    I'm hoping to meet a friend flying in on United Express from Mexico City Tuesday, May 7 and departing after 4h lay over to Canada. Looks to me as if the Mexico City usually lands at Terminal D and I know most CDN flights leave out of Term C. Can you suggest a good meeting place? D or C? Thx


    He will have to go through immigration in D, so you can meet him at the exit of immigration there.

    I'll actually have 2 hours scheduled, not 2 1/2 of the flight in from Singapore is on time. Is that adequate connection time?


  • Into IAH from Tampa
    May 5, 2013
    We will be on a United Express Silver flight from Tampa , and we will be flying to El Paso Tx. on a United Express Jet. What terminal will we fly into from Tampa and what one will we fly out of to go to El paso?


    Silver Airways doesn't fly to IAH for United Express. The Tampa-IAH flights on United are all mainline and operate into terminals C and E. If you're on United Express out of IAH to ELP, it could leave from Terminal A, B, or C - they are all connected by the TerminaLink train.


  • 55 minute connection
    May 5, 2013
    gate l6 to g7 in 55 minutes. doable? do i have to go through security?


    ORD doesn't have a gate "I6". However, all gates except the M concourse in terminal 5 are connected beyond security.
