  • Enough time for Intl Connection??
    Apr 24, 2013
    We will be traveling from Istanbul, Turkey to Dallas, TX on May 7, 2013 (Friday) with connection in IAH. I am an American citizen but my wife is not (greencard). Our US born daughter (16 months old) will also be traveling with us. Will 1 hour and 45 minutes between flights be enough to clear customs and get from Terminal D to Terminal A to make our connecting flight to Dallas? Also, Orbitz states that the flight from Istanbul will also land in Terminal A, is it possible since Terminal A is not international? Thank you very much in advance!


    Orbitz is wrong. Turkish Airlines flights at IAH arrive in Terminal D. What airline is your Dallas flight on? If it's on United mainline it will leave from C, if it's on United Express it could leave from A-North, B, or C. If it's on American it will be from A-south. It will be a very tight connection but luckily if you miss it there are many other flights from IAH to Dallas that you could be rebooked on.


    Thank you very much for your reply

  • Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 at SFO
    Apr 24, 2013
    Can you walk from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 at SFO once you are at the gates and beyond security checkpoint?


    You need to take the red-line of the AirTrain and go through security check at T2. (open http://www.flysfo.com/web/page/as_airportmaps.htm)


    The connection is not on the secure side.

    Departing from Rochester, New York - 50 minute layover in DTW before connecting flight to Dallas Fort Worth. Is 50 minutes enough time? Flying Delta.


    Yes, that should be enough time. Connections at DTW are fairly easy.

    is there any place to get a latte in US Airways terminal


    There are several starbucks in CLT


    is the coffee or Starbucks located in the US airways terminal?


    CLT only has one terminal (all the gates are connected at CLT). There will likely be one near your gate/gates.

    (United) San Antonio - IAD - South Africa. Ninety minute layover Tuesday at 4:00 pm. Is that enough time. Do we have to go through TSA again


    You will not have to go through security again. All gates at IAD are connected beyond security. You just have to take the Aerotrain from where you arrive (likely C) to B.


  • Lufthansa 1 hour to Addis plane
    Apr 24, 2013
    I am flying in to Frankfurt with Lufthansa and only have 1 hour to switch planes to a Lufthansa flight to Addis...is that enough time?


    On arrival at ID, all incoming flights from the U.S. are being handled at Area A. After passport control, a tunnel connects Concourse A with Concourse B (Lufthansa uses both Concourses. Your time should suffice.


  • T4 to T2 int to domestic connection time
    Apr 23, 2013
    arriving JFK T4 with international flight (SAA) and need to catch Delta flight at T2 to Orlando. Will 2h20 be enough to collect baggage, clear customs, change terminals, check baggage for Delta flight?


    It may be enough time but it may not be. There are reports of immigration taking a really long time at JFK, but it varies a lot by time of day and terminal. You may get lucky.


  • Connect Lufthansa to united gates
    Apr 23, 2013
    I arrive FRA and must transfer to United flight to US in 40 min. Where are the likely gates of arrival and departure and how to get there?


    Arrival is on Lufthansa....I forgot.


    At FRA, U.S. arrivals are being processed at Area A of Terminal 1 where they go through passport control only; (US departures use the Z gates). Lufthansa uses Piers (Concourses) A & B, while United uses B. To get to Concourse B use the SkyLine train inside security, departing every 2-3 mins. (or take the transfer tunnel outside security). B gates: B1-B63. Hurry!


  • Connection from T2 to T5 in 2 hours
    Jun 3, 2013
    I have a Delta flight arriving from Detroit at 3.56PM at Terminal 2 and I have next Virgin Atlantic flight to London at 5PM from Terminal 5. Will I be able to make it in 2 hours. I need to collect my baggage and check in for London flight.


    You don't have 2 hours - you only have 1 hour 4 minutes. No, I don't think that's enough time.


    sorry it is 6PM. It was a typo. Is it possible in 2 hours?


    Yes, 2 hours should be doable if your flight from DTW is on-time


    Thanks a lot ZAP. I need to claim my 2 bags and go to terminal 5 and check in. How much time should this take?


    Claim will take 15-20 mins, Going upstairs to the ATS and taking it to T5 will take maybe another 15-20. Then you just have to check in with VS and go through security.


    I just checked with Delta and they are ready to transfer the baggage themselves. So I will have to just check in at VA. This should be fairly doable. They will transfer the baggage means I will get it at destination(Mumbai) right?


    If you're flying Virgin Atlantic to Mumbai then yes, it will be checked through to there, however, you may have to claim it in immigration in London and immediately re-check it with Virgin Atlantic there.


    Thanks ZAP. My VA flight is from Chicago to Mumbai via london and is same flight. DO I still need to do that? Delta said they can do it for final destination.


    You'll have to ask the Virgin Atlantic check in counter on that one. I suspect you will but don't know for sure.


    Ok, Thank You. I should know that at Detroit itself when Delta takes my baggage. They should put a label for Mumbai.


    Update on my Trip- I missed my VA flight from Ohare as my Delta flight from Detroit to Chicago got delayed by over 2 hours. I ended up paying $700 for next day flight with VA.

    So can i handle the luggage all by my self. When you get your bags, can you find a cart right around there easily and do you have to go downstairs or something if yes is there an elevator to take with the cart to catch the airtrain? Sorry for my dum questions. I just don't like the unknown. Many thanks again.


    The baggage claim is on the ground level where you find the carts. Then look for the Airline Terminals Train sign and head for the train. However, you can't take the cart onto the train!


  • info?
    Apr 23, 2013
    The reason I downloaded it was for shuttle info. And so far NOTHING! Anyone able to help??


    No need to use a shuttle inside the terminal. If you refer to a shuttle into town, these are your options: 1. The 'Airport Flyer' bus, which runs to downtown Austin and also stops at the University of Texas; 2. The SuperShuttle (tel. 1-800-258-3826). 3. The MetroBus (tel. 512-474-1200) Bus100 starts service at the terminal's lower level at 5:20am, stopping at Pleasant Valley East 7th; at 6th Brazos, at 18th Congress & at 26th Speedway.


  • How do I find terminal?
    Apr 22, 2013
    I see that IAH is very large! I fly United that is scattered among many terminals! How can I locate the one where I should be tomarrow for my flight? I'm traveling to LAX.


    flights from IAH to LAX mostly leave from Terminal C (slight chance of Terminal E). You can check in in C and if your flight leaves from E, you can walk there easily. you can check the departure gate at united.com as well.
