    quickest way from D42 to H11

     

    On arrival at MIA at North Terminal, Concourse D, use the Skytrain to the South Terminal, Concourse H. Signs will guide you.

    Delta to JFK at 5.30pm to international flight at 7.05pm to Moscow. Do you still need claim baguage and go again true custom. Is 1 hour enough time to get thru to make fly. Help. Thanks

     

    You need to find out from Delta if they transfer your bags at JFK to your connecting Aeroflot flight - if not, you need on arrival at JFK go down to the baggage claim and pick up your bag, then take it along on the 'Airline Terminals Train' serving all terminals. Note that Delta uses Terminals 2, 3 & 4 Aeroflot uses Terminal 1. At Terminal 1 you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. You have enough time.

     

    thank you

     

  • 10 hours connection time

    I arrive at 9:45 am from SFO with United first class. I have almost 10 hours connection time. What are my options to spend that much time? in airport or out? Thanks

     

    1. I suggest you pick up some brochures about the City of Frankfurt at the Information Booths in either Terminal and take the train (at Terminal 1) into the City. Frankfurt has many interesting things to see and its nightlife, hotels and restaurants can meet every taste and budget. 2. For detailed Frankfurt information open frankfurt.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=stadtfrankfurt_eval01.c.124836.en 3. For Frankfurt Airport details, open www.ifly.com/fra, click on "Airport Map" under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the text.

    arriving from NEW HAVEN, Piedmont Airlines at 4:37 PM, connecting with US Airways to Venice at 6:35PM. Will we haven enough time. And what terminals

     

    I cannot tell you at what Terminal of PHL Piedmont Airlines will arrive at. US Airways uses Terminal A-East (A gates), and Terminals B & C, while US Airways Express uses Terminal F - Your ticket & the overhead screens on arrival will indicate flight number & gate. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/phl, click on "Airport Map" under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text and how to get around. 2 hours is plenty of time for transfer. Do contact Piedmont to find out if they will transfer your bags to your US Airways flight; if not, you need to pick up your bag and re-check it in at the US Airways counter before going through security check and on to your gate.

    I have a flight leaving from terminal 3 gate B24. Upon checking the terminal map, I found there is only gates up to B22. Is this just an error; Is it i just C24?

     

    At YYZ, as in most other large Airports, expansion work is continuously going on and maps are only periodically being updated. I suggest you look at the overhead screens on arrival to find your flight and gate number. (C24 is not far from B22).

     

  • What's the process?

    My girlfriend is flying in to LAX TBIT on Qantas, then has to get to Terminal 7 for a United connection to Chicago, then on to Buffalo. Her layover in LAX is 3.5 hrs if her flight is on time. As far as I've been able to find out, she'll first have to go through customs in TBIT, and then pick up her luggage. (Does anyone know if Qantas transfers bags to United? Or where I could find that info?) Then she can either walk down or take a connection shuttle to Terminal 7, where she'll have to re-enter security and possibly then recheck her baggage through to Buffalo if Qantas doesn't transfer them. Is this correct? Is there anything I should warn her of when she lands?

     

    Qantas & United belong to different airline alliances. Most likely she will have to take her bag after customs clearance and check it in at Terminal 7 with United. (Call Qantas to make sure). All terminals are served by 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. Starting from TBIT, the next stops are at T4, T5, T6 & T7 - about 10 mins ride. At T7 she needs to go through security check before proceeding to gate.

     

    She'll deplane and go through immigration/passport control, then collect her luggage and take that through customs. From there, it depends on whether or not Qantas can check her in for her onward flight. If they do, then she just has to hand her luggage back in for the next flight; if not, she needs to schlepp it around to the next terminal. Walking from 4 to 7 with luggage is do-able (done it myself, and I am a lazy SOB), but there is also a shuttle bus that goes around the terminals. I've always found that check-in agents explain things clearly, and LAX is pretty well sign-posted.

    Hi, I will going to San Francisco from Amsterdam (Europe) on friday Feb 15th going through Philadelphia. My flight from Amsterdam arrives on 3.50 pm and my connecting flight is on 5.50 pm. I've heard a lot of different stories on delays with security. On previous flights I always had a 3 hour margin, but now a 2 and im worried to not making the connection. Also on my return flight to Europe I have 1 hrs 30 between flights coming from SFO to PHL going to Amsterdam...

     

    As an international arrival you will be processed at Terminal A-West; After customs clearance & baggage re-check-in, allow 35-40 mins for transfer to domestic flight. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/phl, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

     

    First, thank you so much for your reply and the link you send. It is helpful. Second, just so I am not misreading it. Does it mean I need to calculate 35-45 min at least for the whole process? Or for both immigration and going through security at the other terminal each, normally? I might be overly worried. I passed through in 08 with 3 hrs to spare and spend 1,5 hrs in a bar to pass time before boarding then lol

     

    I am facing the similar situation on January 15th. If you want, I could let you know whether I made it or not.

     

    That would be great, if you could do that. And best of luck (and fun of course) on your trip!

     

    My plane from Amsterdam had a 45 min delay, and I still made it! (I had to run like Forrest Gump though)

  • Connect from Terminal D to Terminal E

    I was re-routed at the last minute by British Airway, and flying from LAX to MIA on American Airlines, then connecting at MIA to British Airway to London. What is the best way to get from Terminal D to Terminal E (with little time between connecting flights)?

     

    1. Open miami-airport.com/terminal_gates.asp - on arrival at the North Terminal's Concourse D (1-mile long), the Skytrain stopps 4 times - Station 3 serves gates D26-39 and gates E1-35 of the Central Terminal, with a walkway to gates E10-30.

    How long does it take from terminal A to terminal E

     

    At IAH, the above-ground TerminaLink train, starts its service at the Terminal A station, & connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security - should not take more than 10 mins.

    what is th easist route from Term5 to Term4?

     

    On arrival at JFK at T5, follow signs to the Airtrain (also referred to now as Airline Terminals Train, which makes its round about every 88 mins (but in the unsecured areas of the terminals). Your next stop will be Terminal 4 where you should proceed to the security check before going on to your connecting gate. (see http://www.panynj.gov/airports/jfk-airport-map.html)- yellow line.

  • British Airways to United

    My daughter arrives this evening at IAH on British Airways. After going thru immigration and customs and getting her bags, where can she check in at Untied and how does she get to terminal B. She has 2 hours.

     

    she will take the terminallink train from concourse C to B. it won't take long

     

    Can she re check her bags at the international terminal? Or will she have to take them with her to B? She is switching to United

     

    Also she is coming into E not C

     

    1. British Airways is in Terminal D of IAH; United uses Terminals A, C & E. 2. If British does not transfer bags to United (check) she needs to take her bags after customs clearance to the Terminal where her United flight departs from and check it in at the Departures level with United. Her boarding pass should indicate terminal and/or gate: TA has gates 1-30; TB has Gates B60-88; TC has gates C29-45; TE has gates E1-24. 3. International arrivals go through customs & take the escalator down to Baggage Claim Level 1. From there they go through Exit Control and enter to the right the baggage recheck area, and straight out arrive at the International Arrivals Lobby; there take escalator down to the Inter-Terminal Train to TA, TB, TC & the tunnel to TD. At connecting terminal she will have to go through passport control before proceeding to her gates.

     

    Thank you. BA did not tag her bags home but you think they might transfer them after she reclaims them? If not can she get a baggage cart on the train? The flight lists her arrival at terminal E but from the map it does not look like a huge difference.

     

    Both Terminals E & D have separate customs clearances. She will need to take her bag down to the inter=-terminal train, which does NOT allow carts - but I assure you she will manage just fine, on arrival she needs to head straight for the departures level and the United counter, checking in her bag. She has plenty of time!

    how long does it take to go from terminal E to C

     

    The gate area has, to the left, a connecting walkway to Terminal C, which has in the center gates C14-23 and C24-C27 & C2-14 at either side.

    iam arriving on delta from cvg and flying on virgin australia with a lay over of 37 min,is it enough time?

     

    37 mins is too short a time if you have the following circumstances: (a) If arriving Delta flight is late; (b) If Delta does not transfer your bags to Virgin Australia (in which case you would need to claim your bags at Terminal 5 and re-check them in a the Virgin Australia counter in Terminal 3. Also, as the 9 terminals at LAX are arranged in a U-shape, your terminals are at opposite sides of their parking garages. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text. Pay attention to "Getting around LAX" and beyond.
