  • Enough transfer time?
    Jul 29, 2014
    Hi I'm flying into Vancouver at 12:35 and my connecting flight to Toronto is at 2:15, is a 1 hour and 40 minute layover enough time to go through customs, immigration and claim luggage?


    Yes, that should be enough time.

    Arriving Terminal 2E on Air France and need to get to 2A (El AL) ...CDG website says only go thru security but not customs. Will I need to collect bags and recheck them ? How long will terminal transfer and bag recheck take on average? Would it be walking or taking a shuttle between terminals? Thanks so much !!


    Since both flights are non-schengen you will only go through security. You don't have to do anything with your bags or go through Schengen immigration.


  • connection between terminal 3 and terminal 4 and enough time?
    Jul 29, 2014
    My flight reaching on terminal 3 (USairways) and connecting flight is from terminal 4(AA), time between flights is app 80 min, is this enough time? and what is the best way to get from terminal 3 to terminal 4.


    80 mins should be enough time. It's about a 10-15 minute walk along the curbside (my recommended path) and then you have to go through security.


    Thanks for the information...as per website I came across below: American Airlines and US Airways passengers can now access both the US Airways and American Airlines terminals without leaving security via new shuttle service with stops at Gate 39 in Terminal 3 and at Gate 44 in Terminal 4....is this in place? and enough time as I have only 80 min between flights.


    Yes, that is in place and may save you some time as while it may take longer to get between terminals you won't have to go through security when you get to T4.


  • Enough time??? BOS-> IAD -> NRT
    Jul 28, 2014
    I arrive at IAD from BOS at 11:15AM, and depart to NRT at 12:25PM. Which terminals would I be arriving and departing at? Would I have enough time?


    IAD only has one terminal, but has 4 concourses on two buildings. Both flights should be on the C/D concourse. Yes, you should have plenty of time as all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Will I make it to my connecting flight?
    Jul 28, 2014
    I leave Lima and connect to Miami International with a 2 hour 25 minute layover before my flight to Reagan leaves. With American Airlines. I know I have to go through immigration, claim and recheck my baggage and then go through customs. Will I have enough time and if not, how soon does the next flight from Miami to Reagan take off? So worried I do not want to stay the night and if I do will the airline really pay for it? Thank you


    You should have enough time if your flight from Lima is on-time. I can't tell you what time the next MIA-DCA flight on American is unless I know which flights you are currently booked on.


  • Terminal Connection
    Jul 30, 2014
    Hi,coming from Milano Malpensa to Las Vegas, flight UA Terminal C, 1,5 hour layover at EWR, is it enough?


    1.5 Hours is the minimum allowed time for that connection. So you should be OK if your flight from Milan is on-time but you won't have much time to spare. Both flights will likely be in Terminal C, but you may arrive in Terminal B, which means you will take the AirTrain to Terminal C for your flight to Las Vegas after clearing customs.


    Thank you. My travel agency says the this time is enough but I am not sure,I wll arrive and I will depart from terminal c (flight UA)but please confirm me that when Iarrive in EWR I have to pass immigration then pick up the baggage then re-check the baggage and then pass the security. InAugust I suppose will be a lot of people. Is it right?


    Yes, you have the procedure right and yes, August is the end of the peak transatlantic travel season.


  • 53 min?
    Jul 28, 2014
    Flight 4540 wil arrive at 8:19pm and my connecting flight 350 to SFO will leave 53 minutes later at 9:12 pm. Is 53 minutes enough time to transfer flights?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will arrive in Terminal B and depart from terminal C or E. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.


  • Connecting thru PHL from TPA and ATH
    Jul 28, 2014
    We will be traveling to Athens from Tampa, connecting in PHL. Our flight from TPA gets in at 2:43. Our connecting flight to ATH leaves at 4:20. Would we have enough time to connect? Our return flight from ATH gets in to PHL at 3:15. Flight to TPA leaves at 5:55. Would we have enough time to make the flight to Tampa?


    Both ways you should have plenty of time, especially on your way there as all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Connecting Flight Procedures
    Jul 28, 2014
    I'm flying from Edinburgh to San Francisco with a connection in PHL. Flight arrives in Terminal A with the connecting flight departing from Terminal B 2h 35min after. Will this be enough time to make the connecting flight, what is the procedure regarding transferring/checking in baggage etc? First time flyer to the US


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will be funneled into US Immigration upon arrival where you will go through Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags with US Airways. You will then go up to the departure level, go up to security, and to your departure gate.


  • Dublin - Frankfurt - Athens 50 min layover
    Jul 28, 2014
    Hi. We are flying lufthansa from Dublin to Athens via Frankfurt and have a 50 minute layover (although the last few connections I looked at seem to have have 1hr or 1 hr 10mins). From what I can tell, the dublin flight usually gets in gate B22 or C02 and the Athens flight usually leaves from gate A58 - > A69. Is 50 minutes enough time to make that transfer and will we have to go through security? Would you recommend running, or skytrain? Thanks

    I will be coming from LAX arrival time 7:02 pm and have connecting flight to DTW departing at7:57pm will I have enough time, do I need to go through security again and do you know what gates I would be arriving and departing?


    You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will arrive in Terminal C and depart from B or C. The TerminaLink Train connects all terminals inside security in the event that you have to change terminals.


  • Changing Flight at IAD
    Jul 28, 2014
    I will be arriving IAD from NY (LGA) around 7am and my flight to Orlando leaves 45 mins later. Will there be enough time to catch this flight?


    Yes, you should have enough time if your first flight is on-time. Your flight from IAD will likely arrive at the A concourse and your flight to Orlando will depart from C or D. A is connected to C and D by the mobile lounge and aerotrain, follow the signs.


    Thanks so much


  • Delta domestic to international flight
    Jul 27, 2014
    Arriving delta JFK from fll then connecting to delta to Athens. One hour between fights. Will need wheelchair to transfer to next gate. Will I have enough time? Vd288f


    1 hour should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. The wheelchair assistance staff will help you get from T2 to T4.


    Thank you so much. Hopefully Delta will leave Fll on time.


  • 50 minute connection to montreal
    Aug 8, 2014
    Im flying with carry on and have 50 minute connection from MSP to Montreal Canada both Delta flights. Do we have to go through customs between flights or only upon arrival in Montreal?


    You will go through Canadian Immigration in Montreal. All you have to do in MSP is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Would I have to go to a different terminal since I will be connecting from domestic to international (both Delta flights)?


    No, all Delta flights depart from Terminal 1-Lindbergh


  • Enough Time?
    Jul 26, 2014
    I am arriving on an international flight at 6:30pm in T6, walking to Southwest in T1 for a flight leaving at 9:10pm. Is this enough time to go through immigration and customs, walk to T1, check a bag, get through security, and make it to the gate on time?


    T6 is served by Alaska, Great Lakes & United (I presume you already checked & your incoming airline does not transfer bags to Southwest. Unless you have bought both flights on one ticket, you would need to take your bag along to T1 and check it in there. Either way you have enough time. Note that the terminals are on either side of the parking garages in the center. If you walk between them you would need a cart to load your bags on. You may want instead to use 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, stopping next at T7, T8 and going over to T1 - taking under 10 mins.
