  • 30 minute connection
    Mar 9, 2013

    I am flying to Dulles, DC (Skywest) from wichita, ks (Expressjet) on March 21. I connect in iah with only 30 minutes. I am not familiar with the iah terminal. Any suggestions?

     

    Both of your flights will probably be in Terminal B so it shouldn't be that difficult of a connection.

    Hi. I am looking at a flight pairing from Montreal to Newark and then Newark to Fort Meyers on United Airlines. It is on a Wednesday with the layover at around 2pm. I assume that customs clearance will be done in Montreal and baggage checked through to Fort Meyers. Is 52 minutes enough time to change gates? I will be travelling with my 20 month old baby (carrying her in a baby carrier, no gate checked items), of course providing the flights are on time...

     

    Yes, 52 minutes is doable and considering it's at 2 PM, there's probably another flight to Ft. Myers after that if you miss your connection due to delays.

    Is TSA precheck available at any of the United Terminals? I am flying out of T7 after transferring over from T2.

    Calgary to LAX on Air Canada. Transferring from T2 to United Airlines commuter flight in T7. Easiest transfer? I should have 2 hours. Do i have to go out of security?

     

    Yes, you will have to leave security. You can take the shuttle that operates on the lower level or walk, either way it's a long transfer, but you have enough time.

    What terminal is this flight arriving?

     

    All US Airways flights operate from Terminal 4

     

  • Security Wait Times

    The iFly information on security wait times would be a lot more useful if there was any information on when it was last updated? Are these figures for this week, or last June?

     

    Well it does say 'based on historical averages', and as a frequent traveler I'd say they're pretty close. HOWEVER, they're only pretty close for certain days of the week. Try flying Monday before 9am and you'll run into the east-coast crowd starting their week. Saturday afternoon? Not so much of a problem. They need to show average BY DAY. And please, could you decifer the check in lines are called? Not everyone knows the name of the entrance by the food court with twice as many metal detectors as the other entrances!

    We are flying with United from Calgary (YYC) to IAH then Cancun on April 30h. All with United. Our layover is 1h20min. Can we expect to make the connection? Our arriving/departing flight are both in terminal E. I am not sure if we will have to line up to go through customs and collect our baggage before we board our next flight. Thanks

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration in Calgary. You will not have to collect your baggage until you get to Cancun.

     

    it will be better if you contact with the website of the airlines

    We are flying with United from Montreal (YUL) to IAH then Puerto Vallarta on April 5th. All with United. Our layover is 1h10min. Can we expect to make the connection ? Do we have to claim our luggages and go through the security ?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration in Montreal. You will just have to get to your gate (likely a connection from Terminal C to Terminal E). You do not have to claim any luggage or go through security again in Houston, just take the Terminalink train between terminals if necessary.

    Arriving on Korean Air at TBIT. This is Delta code share flight with a connection at Terminal 5. Will have to claim my baggage and check it in at 5 or will the bags be transferred to the connecting flight? Also, as I have 2 large suitcases is there porters available for assistance?

     

    You will claim your baggage in Immigration and then you can re-check them with Delta in the TBIT once you clear customs. You'll then just walk yourself and your carry-ons to T5 and go back through security.

    We are flying with United fromToronto to IAH then on to Ixtapa on April 8...all with United. My ticket does not say which terminal yet. Our layover is 37 minutes!! When we will know the terminal and will we be able to get from one to the other in time?

     

    You likely will both arrive and depart from Terminal B as both of those markets are served by United Express from IAH. As such your connection will be an easy one.

     

    thank you for your feedback, much appreciated!

     

  • Enough Time?

    Question - Is 1 hr 20 min enough time to make a connecting flight from AA 550 (from LA ) to AA 4282 (to Kitchener, Canada)? Do I need to pick up my checked bag and recheck? Do I need to go through security again? Thanks!

     

    On the way to Kitchener you will not have to pick up your bag or go through security again. Both of your flights will be in Terminal 3. You clear Canadian immigration in Kitchener. Your bag will be checked straight through.

    I will be arriving by LH-419 from IAD (USA) at 7:40 a.m. Terminal I A and connecting to LH 758 (to Chennia - MAA - India) which departs at 9:55 a.m. from Terminal I AB. Where is Terminal I AB. Do I go up by elevators and catch the skyline to Terminal B please? Thanks in advance.

     

    All of your flights will be in Terminal 1 (there are no Terminal A/B/etc.) You do not have to take the skyline.

    Need to go from T7 to T2 and have about two hours. It is a little hard for me to walk quickly because of recent surgery. What do you suggest I do to make my flight to China? What do I do to go through Security again? I will have carryon bags.

     

  • 1.5 hr connection - cutting it close?

    I'm scheduling a one-way Alaska cruise-tour at the end of May (start in Fairbanks on land and end in port of Vancouver). I am considering ticketing round trip to SEA and collecting my bags from American for check-in for Alaska flight to Fairbanks with 1.5 hrs in between. Is that time sufficient for baggage claim from AA and check-in with AS? Terminals may be changed by May such that all AS flights are from North Satelllite. Help!

     

    That's probably enough time, but try pricing it as a multi-city itinerary on AA.com or an online travel agency and see if you get the same price. If you do that then your bag will be checked through to FAI and you won't have to worry about claiming it in SEA.

     

    Thanks. That makes sense. I'll go thru AA.com.

    Where can I meet travelers from Ireland arriving 3/14 at 1:45 PM on US Airways Flt 723 immediately after they clear customs? Thanks for your help. Mike

     

    They will clear US Immigration in Ireland, so they won't be coming through customs. Arrivals from Ireland are handled like regular domestic flights
