  • Terminal A to Terminal C
    Jul 26, 2014
    I am flying from Toronto to New Delhi via United with a 51 min. stopover in Newark. Toronto Flight lands in Terminal A and Delhi flight leaves from Terminal C. Is that sufficient time to make the connecting flight. I am travelling on a Saturday evening in August.


    Use U.S. Customs clearance in Toronto; on Arrival at EWR, take the United bus shuttle departing from Gate Area 2 near gate A28, to Terminal C, gate area 1, near gate C74 (no security check needed). TC's gate areas: C1 is arranged in a Y-shape (gates C70-99); C2 (gates C101-C115); & C3 (gates C120-139).


    I am also getting the same flight from Toronto to New Delhi via Newark with an 58 min layover, my concern is that were you able to make it to the connecting flight within time? Also did you go through customs again in Newark? Lastly, what was the overall experience flying with United? Thanks in advance.


  • enough time
    May 25, 2014
    I have a 44 min layover, arriving on United 1153 @ 9:11am and departing United 5190 @ 9:55. Is this in the same concourse and duable to make the connection?


    You arrive & depart from the same Concourse B, which has gates B15 - B37 and B38 - B60 with extensions to both gates B80 - B95 and B59 - B79 on either side of the center. Your transfer time is sufficient.


  • SFO to IAd to DXB - customers where?
    Jun 22, 2014
    I am flying from sFO to IAD and then on to DXB via united. Do I go through customs in SF? My flight check says terminal 3 which is a domestic terminal. In IAD, which terminal do I go to?


    You depart SFO via United at Terminal 3, which has Boarding Area E, gates 60-69 & Boarding Area F, gates 68-90. You will arrive at IAD at Concourse C/D (C & D gates) United uses both Concourses and a connecting walkway is between them. Look at overhead screens to find your connecting flight & gate number.


    Thanks. I guess I still don't where I go through customs - if at all.


    You will go through UAE immigration when you get to Dubai. You do not go through US Immigration when leaving the US.


    You will go through UAE Immigration/customs when you get to Dubai. Nothing in the US.


  • enough time for connection?
    May 24, 2014
    I arrive with Delta Airlines from Atlanta to Rome at 7.30am will land in terminal 3 and I am thinking to buy a ticket Rome-Vienna with AirBerlin that leaves at 8.50am from terminal 3. I have an European Passport (spanish), I will have 80min will it be enough time to make the connection?


    You are a non-Schengen arrival at FC0 and need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance and proceed with your bag to the AirBerlin counter for re-check-in (as you have 2 separate tickets and your airlines don't belong to the same Alliance). Since you don't need to change terminals, your time should suffice.


  • 1 hour connecting time from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3
    May 24, 2014
    My flight departs Calgary, Alberta Canada with United, terminal 1 ( I belive) departs Chicago with American Airlines terminal 3. is 1 hour enough connecting time?


    Make sure you go through U.S. Customs at Calgary. If you bought both flights on one ticket your bags will automatically be transferred; otherwise you need to claim your bag & re-check it in with AA. On arrival at ORD you can use walkways at post-security areas of the Departures level - follow signs - or take the free ATS shuttle train runs every few minutes in the unsecured areas of the terminals and go through security check before proceeding to your gate.


  • Terminal 2 to 1
    May 24, 2014
    Hi, I fly from ORD to JFK then have a connection to Paris. My flight from Chicago has been delayed 30min so I will arrive approximately at 10.30 at JFK terminal 2 gate C66, my flight to Paris is at 11.20 terminal 1.its on the same company and won't have to pick up my luggage. Can I make it?


    On arrival at T2 follow signs to the 'Airline Terminals Train' which makes its continuous round between JFK's terminals (counter-clockwise) - your next stops would be T1, where you need to go through security check first, then proceed to your gate. You have sufficient transfer time.


  • T5 domestic to T1 international in 1hr 40mins
    May 24, 2014
    I'm about to book a jetblue flight that gets in to JFK from ORD at 11:10pm on Saturday night. My following flight is at 12:50am Sunday from JFK to ICN (korean air). The transfer is from terminal 5 to terminal 1, domestic to international, and I would only have 1hr 40mins. It is different airlines so I have to check back in, but I have no bags to check and I will have completed web-check in by then. Will I have enough time? How likely is a flight delay for late Saturday night and how reliable is jetblue flight time? FYI I'm a frequent flyer who knows my way around and am a fast walker :)


    With only a carry-on bag, all you need to do is on arrival at T5 follow signs to the 'Airline Terminals Train' which makes its continuous round between JFK's terminals (counter-clockwise). - your next stops would be T4, T3, T2, T1. On arrival at T1 you need to go through security check & proceed to your gate. You have enough time.


  • Terminals 4-2 and shuttle location
    May 24, 2014
    This is my first time flying and I'm trying to figure things out just right as I'm flying by myself. My flight is coming from RIC to JFK Terminal 2 and I have a connecting flight to Terminal 4 that goes to Vancouver. My layover is roughly 2hrs. I need to know if I'll have enough time and where exactly the Delta shuttles are usually located as I have no idea and can't find the information.


    At JFK, Delta's continuously running shuttle bus service between gate C60 at T2 & gate B23 at T4 eliminates the need for security check - add about 12 minutes of transfer time. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/jfk, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • 35 minutes enough to connect to Japan Airlines
    May 24, 2014
    I have 35 minutes to connect from a local AA flight from RIC in O'hare to Narita on JAL. Is this enough time?


    I have 35 minutes to connect from a local AA flight from RIC in O'hare to Narita on JAL. Is this enough time? AA's domestic flights & international departures are at Terminal 3, which has G , H, K & L concourses & gates: Concourse L to the left, the Y-shaped gateway to Concourses K & H in the center and Concourse G to the left. Check overhead screens on arrival indicating flight & gate numbers. Hurry!


  • E to A in 1h45
    May 28, 2014
    Hi! I'm flying Delta from LHR to BOS and on to JFK, with a 1hr 45 layover. Is that enough time? I know I'll arrive into terminal E and depart from A - how long is the walk? Will it be easier if I try to take only carry on? What do I do if I miss the connection? I've heard terrible things about Delta!


    There are no post-security transfers at BOS. Terminal A /TA is south of TE. After passport control, customs clearance & baggage re-check, use TE's level 3 bridge to TA (5-7 mins), go through security check and on to your gate. With customs /baggage re-check (regardless whether US Citizen or foreigner) you may not make it in time if arriving at rush hours -with only a carry-on bag, you save time. Shuttles 11 & 55 make their round between the terminals outside of the baggage claim area.


    Thanks! It was fine in the end as my inbound arrived a little earlier than scheduled and the line at immigration wasn't too long (but very slow) which took about an hour. Then took bus 11 which had me at terminal A in minutes. Outbound was of course delayed but I would've made it anyway.


  • 1 hour layover
    May 23, 2014
    I'm flying from Canada to San Francisco with a one hour layover in Detroit. Do I need to go through customs in Detroit, and is one hour enough time?


    Where in Canada are you coming from? Most major airports in Canada have US Immigration pre-clearance. If the airport you're flying from does have it, you will pre-clear US Immigration there and all you will have to do in Detroit is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If both of your flights are on Delta all their gates are connected within security.


    I'm flying from Halifax, and it looks like they do have pre-clearance: http://hiaa.ca/travel-checklist/travel-to-the-us/ Thanks for the info!


  • Arrival & Departure
    May 22, 2014
    I will arrive at ORD from ATL @ 12:25pm and depart @ 01:55pm to Tokyo Narita (NRT) on flights operated by American Airlines,which terminal will I arrive and depart from ORD.


    Both flights will be in Terminal 3 - all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.


  • USA to AMS to EDI
    May 22, 2014
    Arriving 8:35 AM in AMS, connecting to KLM going to EDI at 10:00 a.m. Is that enough time


    Yes, that should be plenty of time - AMS has sterile intl->intl connections so you will just have to go through security at your departure gate.


  • How to go from terminal 1 to terminal 3

    How to go from terminal 1 to terminal 3


    There is a well signed route. You can either walk along the curbfront or through the terminal, depending on your needs.


    Thank you for your help. do you know how long it takes walking from 1 to 3 ?


    At FCO Boarding Areas domestic boarding areas are connected. You arrive at Boarding gate Area B and head for boarding Area D or H of T3.(D or H gates) - simply follow 'Boarding Area" signs.


  • International Connecting flight
    May 21, 2014
    Hi, i'm flying united airlines from London heathrow to Washington Dulles, and then on to united express flight to Charleston, if the plane lands i'll have 1 hour and 12 minutes to get on my connecting flight, A) is this enough time at IAD? B) will they transfer my bag so i can go straight to the gate instead of going through to check my bag in again?


    No, that probably won't be enough time unless your flight gets in early. You will clear US Immigration in United's facility in concourse C/D, claim your bags, go through US customs, and then re-check your bags with United. Then you will go through security and to your gate, which may require a trip on the aerotrain or mobile lounge to concourse A.
