  • T1 C concourse to T3 L concourse
    Aug 24, 2012
    2
    I have approximately 40-45 minutes from arriving on United in Terminal 1 to Departing on American in Terminal 3. Carry-on luggage only. I can move OK walking/sprinting. The big question...do I have to go through security at Terminal 3. Can I reasonably expect to make my connection?

     

    At ORD on arrival at T1 follow the ATS train signs. The train runs every few mins, but may arrive/depart from the unsecured areas of the terminals, meaning that you would have to go through security check at T3. T3's gates: Concourse G has gates G1A-G21, and on the lower level gates G13-G15. Concourse H has gates H1-H18, Concourse K has gates K1-K17; Concourse L has gates L1-L10 (for Virgin America, Spirit, JetBlue, Air Choice One and American airlines) NO TIME TO WASTE!

     

    fraug12. Thanks, I continued to research posts with similar situations such as mine. Using the ATS apparently means going through the TSA lines. I checked the layout of the terminals after seeing some posts indicating that I can travel from T-1 to T-3 while staying in the secured area. No TSA stuff. Anybody done this. If I run like the wind, can I get from T-1 to T-3, passing through T-2 in twenty minutes to a half hour? Thanks again fraug12

    Great sushi, never had an issue, however August 22nd, 2012 I did have maggots in my edamame. They handled it very well, but be aware of this possible digusting issue.

    If I am arriving at B7 and need to get to F2 in under 40 minutes can I make it? I am traveling with a 4 year old.

     

    At ORD, T1 connects at the Departures level - left end - to T2. No time to waste! signs will guide you to your gate area.

     

  • 1 1/2 hour conc a to South satellite

    is this possible

     

    On arrival at SEA, opposite Gate 4 - two levels down - is the train to B, S & D gates (S gates being South Satellite). You have plenty of time.

    I need to go from Terminal D to terminal J outside of security. What's the quickest/easiest way?

     

    If you are a domestic arrival at the North Terminal, Concourse D, you can proceed via Sky Train on level 3 to the South Terminal's Concourse J, taking minutes.

  • which gate/terminal used for Sao Paulo
    Aug 23, 2012
    1
    good morning, I am flying with KLM from Vienna to Amsterdam and then to Sao Paulo GRU - KL 0791 at 10,05 on Sept. 2. I have very short time for transfer. I would like to know which gate/terminal is used for Sao Paulo. Thank you for your answer

     

    1. On arrival at AMS note: Arrivals 1 & 2 areas lead up to Departures 1 & 2; and Arrivals 3 & 4 lead up to Departure 3. Departures 1 uses the B & D gates; Departures 2 uses the E gates; Departure 3 uses F, G, H & M gates. (B & C gates are at the very right end of the bow-shaped terminal; north of it are the C gates arranged in a Y-shape; around the bend are the E gates, followed in the center by the F gates; right thereafter is entry to the G, H & M gates (G gates are to the right, H & M gates to the left). Walking from the entry of B or C gates all the way over to the entry of G, H or M gates would take about 15 mins. Walking to the end of B gates takes 15 mins; for the C gates 7 mins; for the D gates 8 mins; for the E gates 1 min; for the F gates in the Center 2 mins; for the G gates 5 mins; and for the H & M gates 7 mins. 2. Arriving at Sao Paulo Guarulhos Airport has two terminals: 'TPS 1 & 2', joined together and appearing as one long building – TPS1 has Concourses A & B, and TPS2 has Concourses C & D - with corresponding gates. Your ticket will indicate which terminal you arrive at.

     

  • FLIGHT LAS TO LIM CONNECTING IN IAH
    Aug 23, 2012

    I will only have 40 minutes to connect, I see that the flight arrives at Terminal C and the flight to Lima departs at Terminal E...do you think I can make it?

     

    On arrival at IAH you have two options to get to Terminal C: (a) Take the above-ground TerminaLink train connecting all terminals inside security; (b) If arriving at gates C29-45 and transferring to Terminal E: walk towards gates C14-24 and proceeds straight on to TE.

     

  • How many minutes from gate to gate
    Aug 22, 2012
    1
    How long will it take a slow-ish walker to get from C6 to C30?

     

    This is the layout of Concourse C at DTW: Concourse C serves American Airlines; at left leads gates C8 through C43. These gate areas are arranged in five clusters, four of which have three gates on each side, the last cluster has gates C32-43. An elevator between Concourses B & C leads to the Lower Level gates C1 to C7. - As you can see you arrive on the lower level and need to take the elevator up, then proceed to the cluster with gate 30. Impossible to give you connecting time.

     

  • Landside Lounges

    Will arrive several hours too early for rental apartment check in. Are there any landside lounges I can use after getting my luggage? I can use Delta Sky Clubs and several others.

     

    None of the many CDG terminal maps have airline lounges listed among their services; as a general rule, airline lounges are located inside security areas. Contact either information counter at Arrivals area or Delta.

    I am flying into DENVER on United. Have only 50 minutes to connect to a Frontier flight. It looks like Uniteds on concourse B, Frontier's on concourse A. Should I take a train or is there a connecting skybridge. 50 minutes is not long to make the connection. Thoughts?

     

    1. To get from Concourse B to Concourse A, you need to take the underground AGTS train, which runs continuously between the Concourses, with gates on either side and taking 5 minutes for each stop).

     

  • Sky West to Air France

    Where is Sky West? How to get from there to T2 Air France walking (or bus)

     

    I am unable to give you transfer direction, as LAX has no SkyWest listing under their Airline listings. Use this URL and complete City & Flight # to get your terminal designation. (googling SkyWest - I note that it's an Australian company). If you are an international arrival you need to go first through passport check, pick up your bag and go with it through customs clearance; then re-check-in your bag where indicated (make sure that SkyWest transfers your bags to AirFrance - if not, you need to take your bag to the connecting terminal to check it in at Air France counter, then go through security & on to your gate. To get from terminal to terminal and other details about the terminals, open www.ifly.com/lax - click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, and scroll down to the text.

     

  • Alaska to Southwest Connection - 2 hours
    Aug 22, 2012

    I have two hours between arriving international on Alaska to departing domestic on Southwest. I will need to recheck my luggage after customs. What is the best way to get to terminal 1 from terminal 6 after customs?

     

    You have the option of walking from T6 by crossing the street and passing the parking structures - on opposite side is T2 - T1 is at right. Or you can 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 are T7, T8 and over to T1 - 3 stops or 7 mins. In both instances you need to go through security at T1.

     

  • T5 transfer to T2

    If I'm arriving on an international flight at 2:15pm, is it possible to get to terminal T2 for a 3:38pm flight. I realize I need to pick up my bag, go thru customs and arrive at other terminal. How much time should I allow between international flights and local USA flight?

     

    Your gate-to-gate time at ORD is adequate - after customs clearance proceed up one level to the Airport Transit System (ATS) station and take the train to your connecting terminal.

    we have 40 minutes from arrival at LAX (terminal 6) to depart TBIT..both UAL flights - what's the best way of TRYING to make our second flight?will we have to go thru security again?

     

    On arrival at LAX head straight for the ground level and take the escalator down to the tunnel leading to T5; go up the escalator & exit T5; walk to the left passing T4 and around the bend to TBIT; go through security check & on to your gate. (The bus runs the opposite way and comes around only every 12-15 mins). NOTE: Past ticket counters A to F are the escalators (at A & F) leading to the TSA Screening, and past that you have in the center bus gates 107-112 and bus gates 113-118, as well as Gates 101-108 to the left, and gates 119 -123 to the right - and they just opened Gates 124-134A. Look at overhead screens in terminal to find your connecting gate. You need to run.

     

    Are you sure your UA international flight is out of TBIT? Some of the UA international flights depart from Terminal 6 or Terminal 7.
