  • UAL 47 from FRA to UAL 1178 in 2.5hrs?
    Mar 6, 2013
    1
    Hi there, I have a checked bag and have to connect from UAL 47 from Frankfurt to UAL 1178 to SFO. Due to delays it appears I have around 2hrs and 45 mins to do this. Not being familiar with this airport and their customs, can I expect to make this connection in the time allowed?

     

    That should be plenty of time.

    On march 18 we will be flying pls thru clt to phx. where will we go thru customs? How much time is needed between clt arrival and phx departure?

     

    You will clear customs in Charlotte, claim bags and re-check, and then have to go through security again. I would want 1.5 hours, but an hour might be OK.

    Hi, I'm flying in UA517 from DC (IAD) and flying out UA819 to Buenos Aires, Argentina. 1) Is 1.20 minutes enough time to connect flights? 2) Do you know which are the gates for those flights? 3) Do i have to go through security at IAH again? Thanks!!!

     

    You won't know the exact gates until the day of your flight but they will be in Terminal C or E which are walkable. You will not have to go through security again in IAH on your way down.

     

    Thank you very much! Yes, I meant 'Terminal' not gate... =)

     

  • International Terminal to Terminal 3

    United Airlines from YVR to SFO International terminal and the connecting to United Airlines at Terminal 3 within one hour! is it possible with all the news about long security checks?

     

    Many flights from YVR arrive in Terminal 3 (since you will preclear US immigration in YVR), if that's the case you won't have to change terminals or go back through security.

     

    You are right..... I will be on United Express, which would be arriving at Terminal 3 and not at SFO International Terminal as I thought, eventhough it is an international flight from Canada. Thanks very much for your prompt reply!

     

    flight from YVR to SFO allows 39 minute connection time - will we make it?

  • Connecting in Newark for Halifax

    We have a flight from Atlanta to Halifax with a change connection in Newark. We have to get from Terminal C to A in 55 minutes. Does anyone know if we will have to reclaim baggage for customs/inspection; or can we check it thru from ATL?

     

    You will not have to claim baggage in EWR. It will be checked through to Halifax in Atlanta. You will clear immigration in Halifax.

    If arriving at LAX on united from Sydney and changing flights to fly on to New york do I need to go through the Security area after going through customs I fly into terminal 6 and fly out of 7 and is there a quick way off getting to terminal 7

     

    Yes, all international arrivals have to go through security after clearing immigration. Terminals 6 and 7 are connected. You just have to go up to the departure level and walk over.

    Hey, only to be sure about the connection time: I arrive at terminal C (LAS-IAH) and depart from terminal D (IAH-FRA, international), connection time is 1.20. I have never been to IAH, so I have no idea how it is like. Is that enough to get the plane? thanks!!

     

    That should be enough time, it's not a difficult connection.

     

  • International transfer within Terminal 3

    Hi, I'm landing on an international Delta flight in Terminal 3 JFK at 6:40am and leaving on a domestic Delta flight from Terminal 3 at 8:10am. Delta insists 1.5 hours is enough (especially in the same terminal) but I'm worried; have to get off from the back of our international plane with a baby, clear passport control, pick up our bags and clear customs, drop off the bags and go to our next flight. Is 1.5 hours really enough for all that if we don't need to transfer terminals? Thanks!

     

    Forgot to mention, we are US citizens so that should help...?

     

    That will probably be enough time. There aren't that many international arrivals that early in the morning so Immigration won't be that busy.

     

    We arrive from Athens in terminal 3 at jfk at 4:30 pm. Our domestic flight from terminal three to Columbus Ohio leaves at 6:20 pm. Is that really pushing it to make the connection including customs, etc?

     

  • Terminal 8 to terminal 4

    We are flying in to terminal 8 on united express & land at 8:45am, we have to go to American terminal 4 for a 11am flight. Will we need to get our checked baggage & go through security? Will we have enough time to catch our flight?

     

    If your tickets were bought on the same reservation, then United will be able to check your bags through to American. However if they were not you will have to claim them, take them to T4 and re-check them. Regardless, you will have to walk or take the shuttle to T4 and then go through security. You have enough time.

     

  • crowded airport?

    Is this airport crowded like DFW or EWR? are the security check lines unbareably long?? need to know if one hr between flights is enough time to get from gate to gate, concourse h to concourse c

     

    1 hr will be tight but should be enough. Security lines at FLL really depend on the terminal and the time of day.

  • tight connection time to Buenos Aires

    I'm flying from San Francisco to Buenos Aires and only have a 50 minute connection time at DFW. Is that enough?

     

    If your first flight is on-time, yes, it's enough. All terminals at DFW are conveniently connected via the TerminaLink train.

     

    thanks.

  • Switching Airports, Transfer Counters
    Mar 4, 2013

    Arriving by Air France from Toronto at CDG and switching to Orly to fly to Reunion. Upon arrival at GDG we have to: (1 )pick up our check-in luggage, (2) find a Transfer Counter to obtain our bus tickets for airport transfer to Orly (by AF Les Cars - according to AF website they will be given to us) and go thru passport control. People say this airport is not set up as other airports so what do I do first after landing at CDG (Terminal 2E), find the Transfer Counter, then passport control, and then the luggage pickup? Are these Transfer Counters easy to find? Thank you in advance for answering!
