  • Tranfer time -> flight to San Francisco
    Jan 6, 2014
    Hello, we are flying from Vienna to Amsterdam and them from Amsterdam to San Francisco. We have 1h for transfer. Is this enough? All flights are KLM. Thanks


    Yes, that should be enough time. AMS is made for quick transfers and all you will have to do is go through security at your departure gate.


  • Connecting Flight
    Jan 5, 2014
    Delta Vacations booked me on a trip where I only have 51 minutes to make my connecting flight. I'm arriving from another U.S. city into Atlanta & then have said time to make another Delta flight that is going to Bermuda. Can someone help me as to what to expect? Will this be enough time to change planes? Any idea how far I will have to run on foot from one gate to another? P.S. I plan to bring a carry-on bag only so I won't be checking any luggage.


    You will arrive into one of the several concourses and depart from concourse E/F. All concourses at ATL are connected beyond security by the plane train and you can reach them within 20 minutes. If your first flight is on-time you will have enough time.

    Hi, We'll arrive from st lucia with JetBlue and then heading out for London with virgin.. All at terminal 4. Do we have to pick up our baggage, clear customers and re-check though it's the same terminal? If, how long will it take to go through?


    Yes, you have the procedure correct. Immigration and customs will take 30-60 minutes.


  • Connecting from IcelandAir to Alaska tonight -- 1:50 enough time?
    Jan 5, 2014
    My flight from iceland arrives at 4:40pm and I booked a flight with Alaska to PDX at 6:30. Is that enough time to clear customs, transfer to the right terminal and go through security again? I'm not checking any baggage.


    Yes, that should be enough time, especially without checked bags.


    Thank you. I just made it through everything in about 20 minutes. Good thing I hold a USA passport - the lines for foreigners were out of control!


  • International to Domestic Connection
    Jan 5, 2014
    Hi. I arrive on a flight with SAA, then have to clear customs and recheck in before catching a United flight two hours later. I'm a little concerned about the time. This is do-able? the tickets were gifts and not changable. And what terminals would I be going between? Thanks!


    If no serious delay in arrival, you should be able to make connection. In any case, after customs clearance & baggage re-check you will need to take the shuttle bus your connecting flight. (United uses Concourse C & D - I found no listing of SAA.


    IAD only has one terminal. You will clear US Immigration in the International Arrivals Building, then re-check your bags and go through security and take the AirTrain or Mobile Lounge to Concourse A, C ,or D. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time but won't have much time to spare.


  • 56mins enough for UAL connection?
    Jan 5, 2014
    We are arrivin from San Diego an changing to UAL's flight to HNL in 56mins. Is that enough for us and our checked bags?


    Yes, that should be enough time. All United flights are connected beyond security at SFO.


    Ok, and even the bags will make it?


    There's no guarantee, but they should.


  • 36 minute connection time
    Jan 4, 2014
    I am arriving from Honolulu at 11:50 AM and flying out at 12:26 PM. to Toronto. Both flights are UA. Change in terminals from C to A. 36 minutes. Do I have any chance of catching my flight.


    It will be tough, especially if your Honolulu flight is delayed at all. However, United has lots of later flights to Toronto that you can be rebooked on if you miss your connection.

    Poor service, walked out.


  • 34 min connection time!
    Jan 4, 2014
    Is this doable? Flying Delta from Las Vegas with 34 mins to make a connection to Amsterdam. I have no idea which terminal we arrive or depart from! Thankyou


    Both of your flights will be on the A Concourse of the McNamara terminal. If your first flight is on-time you will be OK. Also, Delta operates several Detroit-Amsterdam flights so unless you are already scheduled to be on the last one, you can be rebooked if you miss your connection.


  • arriving from Fort-Lauderdal to Montreal
    Jan 4, 2014
    Hi, I will be arriving from Fort-Lauderdale with Delta and going to Montreal also with Delta, Can you tell me which steps I will have to follow ..... Never have a connecting flight in USA. Thank you so much


    You will arrive in Terminal 4 or Terminal 2 (probably Terminal 2) and depart from Terminal 2. If you arrive in Terminal 4 you will have to take Delta's shuttle bus from Terminal 4 to Terminal 2. If you arrive in Terminal 2 you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. In either case you won't have to go through security.


    Thank you so much ... It is such a relief to know that ....


  • JetBlue to AA connection, both international
    Jan 5, 2014
    I'm flying Jetblue from BGI to JFK and then AA from JFK to YYZ. I only have an hour flights. Can I make the cnnection?


    sorry, that's an hour between flights.


    If you only have an hour between your flights you will NOT have enough time. You should not have booked that ticket and will have to change it.


    how about 2 hours 30 minutes to change from an international jetblue flight to a domestic jetblue flight? I would have to clear customs. Do both flights go out of the same terminal?


    International JetBlue flights arrive in T4 and domestic ones depart from T5. That should be enough time.


  • Connecting from T7 to T4/T2
    Jan 4, 2014
    I will be arriving in JFK from Hongkong with Cathay (CX 830) @12.10 PM and will have a connecting flight with Delta to Buffalo (DL 2907) leaving @3:30 PM. I will be travelling with my wife and will be carrying 2 baggage bags and 1 carry on bag. Is it the time enough for me to catch the flight on time. Need your advise.


    Yes, that should be enough time. Once you clear customs in T7, if your bags are checked through to Buffalo you can re-check them in T7, if not you will have to take them with you on the AirTrain to T2 (your flight will depart from T2) and check them with Delta there (and pay checked bag fees). You will have plenty of time.


    Thank you for your information


  • Connection Question
    Jan 7, 2014
    Arriving @10:25 am Air Canada Terminal7 connecting to Japan airlines terminal 1 for a 12:15 flight. What is the best way to make this connection ? Does train travel in both directions? Do we have enough time to collect backpacks and get to next flight? Thanks


    Yes, you can take a train in both directions. You should have enough time as you will pre-clear US Immigration when you depart Canada so your arrival into JFK will be like a domestic flight. http://www.jfk-airport.net/airtrain.html


    Thanks Zap but I've been noticing that the air Canada flight has been arriving about an hour late quite often. Yikes would it be better to walk or take the train. Getting a bit worried about missing flight in NYC and then missing Tokyo flight. Help!


    You can't walk between terminals at JFK, you have to take the train.


  • frontier airlines to Princeton Mercer Trenton
    Jan 3, 2014
    why is flight 908 scheduled to leave tonight at 7:35 delayed by 10 minutes? where is it coming from? and how do you know it is going to be 10 minutes at 4pm?


    This is not Frontier or the RDU Airport's website. However, looking at the Frontier website, it does not appear that this flight is late. The aircraft that will fly this flight will be coming from Trenton as Frontier 907


    so sorry. thank you for the information


  • Yyc connection in iah to mco
    Jan 3, 2014
    Flying united airlines from yyc to iah with a connection to mco have a 2hr layover. Traveling with 2 small children and a stroller will this be enought time to make the connection and get through all necessary security checkpoints


    Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration in Calgary. You will not have to go through any security checkpoints in Houston. Both of your flights, if on United, will likely be in Terminal C.


    Yes both flights are booked with united as well we do the same in reverse on the way back but with 1 hr layover arriving both time around 8am to iah


    The procedure will be the same on the reverse. You will go through Canadian immigration when you get back to Calgary.
