  • Terminal A (Marine Terminal) to Terminal C
    Jan 27, 2014
    I am traveling Delta through LGA. I arrive in Terminal A (Marine Terminal) and depart in Terminal C. If I check bags, will the bags be transferred to my next flight or will I have retrieve my bags from baggage claim and then recheck them. Also, will I have to go through security again when I get to Terminal C. I saw on Delta's webpage there is a Delta bus that goes between the terminals. Is this an option, or should I plan on taking LGA Bus Route A?


    The delta shuttle bus from Terminal A to Terminal D is available "on request" - http://www.delta.com/content/www/en_US/traveling-with-us/where-we-fly/destinations/featured-locations/new-york-city/laguardia-airport-renovations.html Your bags should be transfered for you. You will have to go through security again when you get to Terminal C or D.


  • United to Alaska connection
    Jan 27, 2014
    We are arriving from CA on United(Concourse A, I think) and need to connect to Alaska going to Fairbanks. I see that Alaska uses concourses C, D, and the north satellite. What is the easiest way to get to each of these concourses? Which TSA precheck gate would we use? How much time should allow for check in? We will have carryons only. Thanks.


    All gates at SEA are connected beyond security. Since you don't have checked baggage you can just walk from A to your departure gate if it's C or D or walk and take the train if it's from the N satellite. Just check-in online with Alaska before you leave CA and you won't have to worry about checking in in Seattle.


  • 1 hour enough time
    Jan 27, 2014
    Flying from Vancouver to Pittsburgh with a one hour layover in Houston. Is that enough time and will I have to clear U.S. customs?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Vancouver. All you will have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If they are in different terminals, the TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.


  • Time to connect from Terminal C to Terminal A
    Jan 27, 2014
    We have a connection which was 45 minutes, now with a Delay to departure of 20 minutes we are down to 25 minutes. What is the estimated time to get from Terminal A Concourse a2 Gate 08 to Terminal C Concourse C1 gate C84. Thanks !


    15-20 minutes via the United shuttle bus, but there's a chance your departing flight will be delayed too. So you may be OK.


  • from terminal 8 to terminal 2
    Jan 27, 2014
    We are arriving from helsinki with Finnair to terminal 8 and continue from terminal 2 to san juan with Delta. Do we have to take our luggage with us to terminal 2, or can we leave them to terminal 8? How do we tranfer to terminal 2 and how long does it take?


    Did you purchase two separate tickets or is it one ticket? Finnair and Delta do have an interline baggage agreement so they can check your bags through to Delta, but you will have to bring documentation when you check in in Helsinki if the tickets weren't bought together. If your bags are checked through to SJU you can re-check them after you clear customs in T8, then take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train to T2 or T4 (if your Delta flight number begins with 2 it will leave from T2, if it begins with 4 it will leave from T4). You will need about 2 hours to make your transfer if your bags are checked through to SJU and 2.5 hours if you have to transfer the bags yourself (that includes the time to go through Immigration and customs).


    Tickets are bought together. Thank you for your answear.


  • Connection IAH/SAN
    Jan 27, 2014
    I will arrive in IAH at 5:20 AM from GIG, and taking flight to SAN at 7:10. Both United flights. Will I have enough time to pass security and customs?


    Sorry! Connection in IAH is to SFO, and not SAN!


    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US customs, and then re-check your baggage in Houston Terminal E. You will then go up to the departure level and through security and to your gate, which will likely be in Terminal C, which is connected to E.


  • 39 Minute Connection Time??
    Jan 26, 2014
    I have a 39 minute connection time at IAH on my United flight from Mobile, Alabama to Panama City, Panama. Should I be worried about myself or my bags not making this flight?


    It's pretty tight. You will arrive in Terminal A or B and will have to take the TerminaLink Train (which runs inside security) to Terminal E. You will have enough time if your first flight is on-time but you'll have to hurry.


  • Getting from T5 to T3 on AA
    Jan 26, 2014
    I am arriving ORD in T5 from Cancun on AA Flt #1417, arrives 4:40pm. My connection to Boston AA Flt #2474 departs T3 at 5:55pm leaving 70-80 minutes to make connection. - Do I need to pick up checked bags in T5 and go through Customs? - Is 70-80 min enough time to make my connection in T3?


    Yes, you will have to claim your baggage after clearing Immigration, go through customs, and then re-check your bags in T5, then take the ATS train to T3 and go through security. It's possible to make that connection but it will be tough to make it. If you miss your connection AA has two later flights from ORD to Boston that you can be rebooked on.

  • Is 1hr enough between my flight?
    Jan 26, 2014
    I am flying with Delta airlines from Tampa to Montreal with a connection in LGA. Are the gates between the flight in the same terminal? I have 1hr between the flight, is it enough?


    Delta uses two terminals TC (C gates) & TD - (D gates). (both terminals are under construction to merge - not clear if this was completed, as LGA overall map show a line between the C & D concourse, but there is no indication on individual maps for D & D. Shuttle Bus B runs every 10-15 mins between these two terminals.


    The bridge between the terminals is complete, you don't have to take a shuttle. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Connection time
    Jan 26, 2014
    Hi, I haven't had very much experience flying so I need a little advice on connection time. I have found a really good deal on a flight from Roanoke to Cancun with a connecting flight in DTW. The connection is 53 minutes. Can I make it? I will be arriving before 8 am on Wednesday morning. I don't want to spend an entire day and night in Detroit when I'm supposed to be on a beach in Mexico!


    I should add that it is a Delta flight


    If your first flight is on-time, yes, that's a makeable connection. All Delta gates in DTW are in the same terminal and connected beyond security. Also, since you will be traveling early in the morning and on a wednesday, if you do miss your connection, Delta can probably reroute you to Cancun through Atlanta and you'll get there that day, just a bit later.


  • United Connecting Flight
    Jan 26, 2014
    I am flying United from Europe into EWR (Newark) on 2/26 with a United connection flight to Texas on 2/27 from LGA (LaGuardia). Will I have to transfer my baggage to LGA or will United do it for me?


    So you're flying into EWR and out of LGA? You will have to transfer your baggage yourself and need at least 4 hours for your connection.


    thanks for responding! It's an overnight connection so timing isn't an issue. when i spoke to United straight they seemed to say they would transfer the baggage which on a 4 hr connection would be fine, but on an overnight connection I need my baggage. so i would def transfer myself?


    They probably misunderstood you - airlines NEVER transfer baggage between airports.


    Great! Thanks for the clarification!!! Awesome site!


  • How much time for customs/immigration
    Jan 25, 2014
    I will be landing at LAX at 8:30 AM on Alaska Airlines from Mexico City and then need to catch another flight to Portland. How much time between flights is needed?


    90 minutes should be sufficient, assuming both flights are on Alaska.


  • Enough time?
    Jan 25, 2014
    Any help? Im Arriving from XNA (Arkansas) at 8:02 need to connect with Flight 1169 at Gate E8 boarding at 8:03, departs 8:48 Can I make this?


    Yes, but there is not much room for delays. You will arrive in Terminal A or B and will have to take the TerminaLink Train to Terminal E. However, if you are on United 1169 from IAH to LAX, that flight usually leaves from Terminal C, not Terminal E. However, the procedure is the same, except that you take the TerminaLink to C, not E.


  • Is a one hour layover with Delta feasible
    Jan 25, 2014
    We are due to fly to Orlando soon from Shannon via JFK with Delta. Flight into JFK arrives 2.43pm and flight to Orlando leaves at 3.45pm. Assuming all on time does this give us enough time? From what I can tell we arrive and depart from T4. Beginning to panic now


    I could be wrong about JFK to MCO from Terminal 4. If we have to transfer from T2 are we cutting time very tight


    If your JFK-Orlando flight number begins with a 4 it departs from Terminal 4, if it begins with a 2, it leaves from Terminal 2. Keep in mind that you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Shannon so you will only have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in JFK. But, yes, if you do have to go to T2 it doesn't leave much time for any delays. Delta runs a secure-side shuttle bus between T2 and T4.


    Thank you - hopefully no delays. Going to take a carry on bag as well just in case luggage doesn't make transfer on time
