  • connecting flight do i have enough time?
    Aug 12, 2012

    how long does it take to walk from gate e19 to gate b4? I fly in at 5:30 to e19 and must catch my next flight at 6:10 at gate b4, worried i will miss my flight.

     

    CLT has Terminals A through E with corresponding gates, served in the center of their gateways by its Skylink train - at TE between E8-E11 & E31-32; at TB between B9-B1 & B28-31. Skylink runs every 2 mins, taking 5 mins on average. Hurry!

     

    thanks much for the information suaug12

     

  • Where is Gate FD2
    Aug 11, 2012
    1
    Can you tell me where gate FD2 is?

     

    There is no gate FD2 - most likely they told you FT2 - which would mean Terminal 2, Concourse and gates F - which are used by Air Canada, Delta, United, US Airways. The F gates are F1 - F14, with gates F11A, B & C on the lower level of Concourse F.

    Air canada AC555 from LAX by ticket is to terminal 'M'. Where is it on layout map.looks like A.C. uses Domestic Term 'c'

     

    At YVR, Air Canada uses the Domestic Terminal's Concourse C, which has gates C25-52.

     

  • Recheck baggage
    Aug 11, 2012

    I am flying from RDU - IAD - DOHA - AMD route on October 16th. My travel agent end up making 2 separate tickets for RDU-IAD with united (reaching IAD around 7:00pm) and IAD-DOHA-AMD with Qatar at 11pm Flight. 7:00pm to 10pm is enough time to go to baggage claim pick up 4 bags and re check baggages with Qatar. Upon return i know there are 2 lines at immigration (Washington) for connecting passengers and final destination, since i have 2 separate tickets. I am wondering where do i have to stand? Connecting passenger line for immigration right?

     

    1. With four bags, I think it would be worth your while to check with a shipping agent like FedEx, DHL, etc. how much they would charge getting your bags directly to Ahmedabad - reason: You definitely will be charged by United for 2 bags, and more for the extra 2 bags. Qatar will do the same (unless you have preferred status) and may charge you extra for the second leg of their trip from Doha to AMD. 2. Arriving at IAD: United uses Concourse A with A gates A1-32; A1-A6 are for United Express. The AeroTrain now connects from the main terminal separately to the A gates A1 to A6 (if you would need to claim your bags and re-check them in). If not, near gate A6 is the shuttle bus to the D gates. No immigration procedures are necessary - this is only for international U.S. arrivals). Your time is sufficient.

     

    Me , Wife and Baby are flying.. we are in business class. United will charge me $125 and $135 for 1st and 2nd bag for more then 50lbs same with wife baggage so total i am spending $1040 which is ridiculous due to Travel Agent forced me to take this separate ticket. I told him that i flew before i dont prefer this at all but guess when they take your all $ you have no choice but to deal with it!!!!

     

    Also it doesnt matter what gate i come in "A,B,C or D" i still have to go to main terminal for baggage claim right!

     

  • Do I have enough time?

    I am planning on flying flights KLM 1278 and KLM 611 on Nov 2 from Edinbourgh to Chicago O'Hare with only a 70 min lay over in Amsterdam (AMS). I am worried about having enough time to make the connection. Do I have enough time?

     

    I have an American passport and will be checking bags.

     

    Your ticket and the overhead screens on arrival at AMS will indicate gate arrival and departure number; however, observe the following transfers: Arrivals 1 & 2 areas lead up to Departures 1 & 2; and Arrivals 3 & 4 lead up to Departure 3. Departures 1 uses the B & D gates; Departures 2 uses the E gates; Departure 3 uses F, G, H & M gates. You should be able to make it easily within that time period (November is slow). P.S. You need to go through non-Schengen passport check. If you checked in your bags in Edinbourgh at KLM and KLM will also take you to Chicago, there is no need to pick up your bag at AMS.

     

  • Japan Trip 10-13-12
    Aug 15, 2012

    Hi, I am in the planning stages of a trip to Japan on 10-13-12. The 1st lleg of the trip is United 4353 from ATL, (Express Jet Airlines DBA United Express-Embraer RJ135/145 Regional Jet), and then switch to United Flight 1169, (Boeing 757) for SFO. Layover is only 35 min. and I can find no info on terminals or gates and am concerned that there isn't enough time to make the connection. Can someone please enlighten me if I will have to change terminals and is 35 min enough time for me and the baggage transfer?

     

    United uses Terminals A, B & C at IAH; United uses Terminal 3 & the International Terminal at SFO. You need to contact Express Jet if they transfer your bags at IAH to United flight to SFO - if not, you need to pick up your bag and check it in at the United check-in counter of your departure terminal at IAH. United will transfer your bags from SFO to Japan flight. Read up on both IAH & SFO terminals by opening www.ifly.com/iah /or sfo; then click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, & scroll down to text, which will give you all the details you need. In some instances, 35 mins may be enough time, in others not (changing Terminals, etc)

     

    This is not correct. United uses Terminals B, C, and E. MOAU12 will arrive at Terminal B and probably leave for SFO from Terminal C. This can take quite a while--use the link from B to C. UAL should send the luggage all the way to NRT without issue. But, the 35 minutes is not enough time for this trip through IAH. Once you get to Terminal C from B, unless it's close, hop on a cart and tell him/her to get you to your gate in C. I had to do something quite similar not too long ago and only had 40 minutes. I made it by one minute before they closed the door. Why not simply fly nonstop from IAH to Japan rather than going through SFO!!! It's so my easier on your knees, legs, feet, head and general well-being. United flies non-stop from IAH daily.

     

  • Connecting flight at Orly

    I shall arrive on an Air France flight at CDG's aeroport on the 17th of august at 10:30am or so, clear customs, pickup luggage. Next thing is meeting someone at Terminal 2F, and rush to Orly Airport for a connecting flight with Air France to Nice departing at 15:30. Taking into account the previous, plus considering we will have to ride to Orly Aeroport. 1. Will we be able to catch our flight on time? 2. What transportation vehicle would we have to take from CDG' to Orly?

     

    Paris Airports has a maddening site. However, this is what I gathered: 1. Ar France uses Terminals 2C,, 2B, 2F & 2D; You need to open www.ifly.com/cdg, click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the text for terminal connections and other details. I cannot give you the time it takes to transfer to ORLY. However, I presume that 3 hours should suffice. 2. Transfer from CDG to ORY (Orly Airport): Take the RER rapid TGV train from the Airport train station to Paris "Anthony' station - then take the ORLYVAL shuttle train to ORLY, arriving at Orly's Terminal-South,

     

  • SF to Kauai with 31 min between flights

    i'm flying United from DC to Kauai with a mere 31 minutes between flights at SF Airport. Will i make it??

     

    You arrive & depart from Terminal 3 at San Francisco Airport, which has boarding area F (Air Canada & United), with gates F68-90. You can make it in half an hour. On arrival look at the overhead screens to find your departing gate, then follow signs.

  • Dom to int flight with diff airlines

    Hi, I will be arriving from Austin to IAH via United (dont know my terminal yet) and have to make an international connection to Emirates at T4. Once I collect my bags, will I be able to use the Inter Terminal train to T4 using a baggage cart to get to T4 as I have a couple of suitcases. If not, what other options do I have? Thx

     

    1. United uses all three domestic terminals A, B & C with corresponding gates. However, Emirates uses Terminal D (it uses Terminal 4 at LAX, not IAH!). 2. Did you check with United if they would transfer your bags to Emirates automatically? If they don't you cannot enter the inter-terminal train with a trolley at any airport trains - your best bet is to take a taxi in front of arrivals, or a shuttle located at the south side of TA, B & C and the west end of TD. 3. At TD you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate. 4. The departure level has 9 gateways: (from left to right: gateway leading to gates C14 to C2, and gates D1 to D3; gateway to Gates D4A & D4; Gates D5 through Gates D10 have separate gateways, with gateway to gates D11, 11A & 12 at the end. IF United transfers your bags and you arrive at C gates, you could just walk over to your D gates.

     

    There is no terminal T4 at IAH. Sounds like an LAX terminal number. You will probably arrive at either Terminal B (if on a small Express Jet) or at Terminal C if on a 737. However, why go through LAX when you can fly non-stop from Houston to Dubai on Emirates? I would try to catch a flight out of Austin that arrives at Terminal C or E rather than using LAX. Surely UAL can assist you for this connection. Emirates will depart from Terminal D. Geting from either C or E to Terminal D is just a nice walk. Only take the link if your have to arrive at Terminal B and need to get to Terminal E. The non-stop from IAH to DXB. Unbelievably, the IAH to DXB is actually longer than LAX or SFO to DXB by nearly an hour. Seems impossible, but it is. Hope you are in a First Class or at least Business! Good luck, but do try to make the changes. It's worth it, believe me! I live in Austin and fly to Houston, my hometown, and unless there have been some adjustments, UAL should have a flight on a B737 into Terminal C.

     

  • go from terminal 3 to 1 JFK

    how do a get from terminal 3 where I arrive from Ft.Lauderdale, to terminal 1 for departure to Rome, on JFK ?

     

    Take the free Airtrain which runs on average every 8 mins and takes only minutes between terminals - however, it arrives at the pre-securiy areas, meaning you need to go through security check at Terminal 1 before continuing on to your connecting gate.

    We arrive at Gate B18 and depart from Gate B86 and have a 45 min connection time - will we make it?

     

    You have no time to waste: Gate B18 is near the opposite end of gate B86. When you get off gate 18 walk towards gate 20 to 36, pass the mezzanine level leading down to the train, and continue on from gate 38 to 60; then follow signs to gate 80-95.

    What restaurants are available in Terminal 1 before going through security? I need to meet a friend when I have a long layover. Thanks.

     

    I suggest you open http://www.ifly.com/chicago-ohare-international-airport/ORD-Terminal-1 and scroll down beyond the terminal map, then zero in on establishments not situated at the gate areas.

    I will be arriving to SEA via South Satellite Terminal. I must meet my friend who will be arriving to SEA 2 1/2 hours later at the North Satellite Terminal. We will then be picked up by friends to vacation in Seattle. I don't want to have my luggage sit at the baggage claim for 2 1/2 hours. What are my options?

     

    Meet up in the Central Terminal of SEA's terminal complex. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/sea, click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS
