  • Transfer time?
    Feb 13, 2014
    I have 45min between flights arr term 1 from FLR, dep term 1ab gate a, Is this enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time.


    Do you think my checked bags will make that short of a transfer too?


  • LH arrival to UA Houston departure
    Feb 14, 2014
    Is 1 hour enough time to get from Arrival 1 to Gate G4 - carry on only


    1 hr is sufficient.


  • F to A?
    Feb 12, 2014
    I'm flying from Manchester NH to Rome via PHL next week. Is one hour enough time to get from F to A?


    Yes you should have enough time: Free large shuttle buses, operated by US Airways, connect from Terminal F (gate F14) to gate A1.


  • 1 hour and 5 minutes layover (connection flight)
    Feb 13, 2014
    Can someone help me with this inquiry: i will be travelling from Abu Dhabi, UAE to Madrid , Spain through Alitalia. My flight will arrive Terminal 3 Rome Airport (FCO) and i only have one hour and 5 minutes to go to T1 and catch my second flight to Madrid (Alitalia too). As a British citizen do i need to go through customs or security since I'm just switching flights? And is that time is enough to catch my second flight? Thanks,


    You are considered a 'non-Schengen' (foreign) arrival, therefore, you will need to go through immigration (passport control) and thereafter proceed to your connecting terminal & gate (provided that you bought both airline flights on one ticket, your bags are being transferred). Terminals 1, 2 & 3 are connected at ground levels to their rspective gate areas. T1 houses boarding area B with gates B1-30 - B14-23 on ground level; B27-30 at escalator; B1-13 on level 1. Your transfer time is tight but doable.


    Thanks a lot for your quick response. However; and based on your experience do you think that one hour and 5 minutes transit will give the airport staff enough time to transfer my luggage to my next flight? I will be asking my airport here to check in my luggage all the way to my last destination. Cheers


  • Time between connecting flights (domestic to international)
    Feb 12, 2014
    I'm flying in from Atlanta (with Delta) at 4.40pm and I have to catch another flight to London at 6.30pm (with British Airways) - do I need to claim my luggage and check in again? If I do, would 1h50min be sufficient for me to do that? Thanks!!


    I would also like to mention that my tickets were not bought on a single reservation. Thanks for your help!


    Both British & Delta use Midfield Concourse B/C (B gates). As you booked separate tickets, you will need to claim your bags first at the Main terminal and re-check them in with British. A walkway connects these concourses to the main terminal, as well as separate AerTrain shuttles. Your transfer time should be enough. To get a good idea of the terminal layout, etc. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iad then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    thanks so much for your help!! :)


  • Connection Gates
    Feb 12, 2014
    My parent will arrive on Delta(S Gates) and connect to DL 9190. DL 9190 is operated by Alaska air as AS 672. Alaska Air uses C Gates, D Gates and N Gates. Which gates should they go? Delta's Gates (S Gates), or Alaska's Gates(C Gates, D Gates, N Gates)? Thank you.


    From your previous post it appears your parent will go through immigration in the facility in the S-gates, then claim bags, go through customs, re-check bags, and go through security. Then he or she can take the train to the main terminal and then go to the C, D, or N gates where his or her Alaska Airlines flight will depart. It's more likely 632 will depart from C or N than D.


    It is so helpful to read the information you provided. I appreciate your time and effort.


  • 85 minutes connection
    Feb 11, 2014
    I have a 85 minutes flight connection between T6 where I land and T4 Will it be enough ?


    Yes. that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time, although you might have some trouble if you have checked baggage that you have to transfer yourself and have any delays whatsoever. Were your tickets bought on one reservation?


    Yes, I bought tickets on one reservation with AA. From Portland to LAX it is operated by alaska and from LAX to Vegas by AA. I assume that I do not have to transfer baggage right?


    Right, in that case you just have to go outside of T6, walk to T4, and go through security. You should have enough time.


    Thanks for your help

  • 1H20M Layover time in IAD
    Feb 11, 2014
    We are thinking to book UA804 from Tokyo JP and connect UA3335 in IAD to PHL, but the layover time in IAD is only 1 hour 20 mins. I think we'll have to go through the customs in IAD. Will we have enough time? Thanks.


    Yes, you will go through immigration in United facility in concourse D, then go through customs, re-check your bags, and go through security. Then you will likely have to take the Plane Train to Terminal A where your flight to PHL will depart. It will be hard to do that in 80 minutes but it is doable.


    Sorry, I meant Concourse A, not "Terminal A".


    Thank you for your reply. I didn't know that we'll need to re-check our bag (we only took direct flights before for international).


  • 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.

    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.
