  • B24

    I have a flight leaving from terminal 3 gate B24. Upon checking the terminal map, I found there is only gates up to B22. Is this just an error; Is it i just C24?

     

    At YYZ, as in most other large Airports, expansion work is continuously going on and maps are only periodically being updated. I suggest you look at the overhead screens on arrival to find your flight and gate number. (C24 is not far from B22).

     

  • What's the process?

    My girlfriend is flying in to LAX TBIT on Qantas, then has to get to Terminal 7 for a United connection to Chicago, then on to Buffalo. Her layover in LAX is 3.5 hrs if her flight is on time. As far as I've been able to find out, she'll first have to go through customs in TBIT, and then pick up her luggage. (Does anyone know if Qantas transfers bags to United? Or where I could find that info?) Then she can either walk down or take a connection shuttle to Terminal 7, where she'll have to re-enter security and possibly then recheck her baggage through to Buffalo if Qantas doesn't transfer them. Is this correct? Is there anything I should warn her of when she lands?

     

    Qantas & United belong to different airline alliances. Most likely she will have to take her bag after customs clearance and check it in at Terminal 7 with United. (Call Qantas to make sure). All terminals are served by the LAX bus Route A on lower arrival level island in front of each terminal, under sign 'LAX shuttle airline connection', which runs every 12-15 mins. Starting from TBIT, the next stops are at T4, T5, T6 & T7 - about 10 mins ride. At T7 she needs to go through security check before proceeding to gate.

     

    She'll deplane and go through immigration/passport control, then collect her luggage and take that through customs. From there, it depends on whether or not Qantas can check her in for her onward flight. If they do, then she just has to hand her luggage back in for the next flight; if not, she needs to schlepp it around to the next terminal. Walking from 4 to 7 with luggage is do-able (done it myself, and I am a lazy SOB), but there is also a shuttle bus that goes around the terminals. I've always found that check-in agents explain things clearly, and LAX is pretty well sign-posted.

     

  • Enough transfertime?

    Hi, I will going to San Francisco from Amsterdam (Europe) on friday Feb 15th going through Philadelphia. My flight from Amsterdam arrives on 3.50 pm and my connecting flight is on 5.50 pm. I've heard a lot of different stories on delays with security. On previous flights I always had a 3 hour margin, but now a 2 and im worried to not making the connection. Also on my return flight to Europe I have 1 hrs 30 between flights coming from SFO to PHL going to Amsterdam...

     

    As an international arrival you will be processed at Terminal A-West; After customs clearance & baggage re-check-in, allow 35-40 mins for transfer to domestic flight. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/phl, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

     

    First, thank you so much for your reply and the link you send. It is helpful. Second, just so I am not misreading it. Does it mean I need to calculate 35-45 min at least for the whole process? Or for both immigration and going through security at the other terminal each, normally? I might be overly worried. I passed through in 08 with 3 hrs to spare and spend 1,5 hrs in a bar to pass time before boarding then lol

     

    I am facing the similar situation on January 15th. If you want, I could let you know whether I made it or not.

     

    That would be great, if you could do that. And best of luck (and fun of course) on your trip!

     

    My plane from Amsterdam had a 45 min delay, and I still made it! (I had to run like Forrest Gump though)

  • Connect from Terminal D to Terminal E

    I was re-routed at the last minute by British Airway, and flying from LAX to MIA on American Airlines, then connecting at MIA to British Airway to London. What is the best way to get from Terminal D to Terminal E (with little time between connecting flights)?

     

    1. Open miami-airport.com/terminal_gates.asp - on arrival at the North Terminal's Concourse D (1-mile long), the Skytrain stopps 4 times - Station 3 serves gates D26-39 and gates E1-35 of the Central Terminal, with a walkway to gates E10-30.

    How long does it take from terminal A to terminal E

     

    At IAH, the above-ground TerminaLink train, starts its service at the Terminal A station, & connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security - should not take more than 10 mins.

    what is th easist route from Term5 to Term4?

     

    On arrival at JFK at T5, follow signs to the Airtrain (also referred to now as Airline Terminals Train, which makes its round about every 88 mins (but in the unsecured areas of the terminals). Your next stop will be Terminal 4 where you should proceed to the security check before going on to your connecting gate. (see http://www.panynj.gov/airports/jfk-airport-map.html)- yellow line.

  • British Airways to United

    My daughter arrives this evening at IAH on British Airways. After going thru immigration and customs and getting her bags, where can she check in at Untied and how does she get to terminal B. She has 2 hours.

     

    she will take the terminallink train from concourse C to B. it won't take long

     

    Can she re check her bags at the international terminal? Or will she have to take them with her to B? She is switching to United

     

    Also she is coming into E not C

     

    1. British Airways is in Terminal D of IAH; United uses Terminals A, C & E. 2. If British does not transfer bags to United (check) she needs to take her bags after customs clearance to the Terminal where her United flight departs from and check it in at the Departures level with United. Her boarding pass should indicate terminal and/or gate: TA has gates 1-30; TB has Gates B60-88; TC has gates C29-45; TE has gates E1-24. 3. International arrivals go through customs & take the escalator down to Baggage Claim Level 1. From there they go through Exit Control and enter to the right the baggage recheck area, and straight out arrive at the International Arrivals Lobby; there take escalator down to the Inter-Terminal Train to TA, TB, TC & the tunnel to TD. At connecting terminal she will have to go through passport control before proceeding to her gates.

     

    Thank you. BA did not tag her bags home but you think they might transfer them after she reclaims them? If not can she get a baggage cart on the train? The flight lists her arrival at terminal E but from the map it does not look like a huge difference.

     

    Both Terminals E & D have separate customs clearances. She will need to take her bag down to the inter=-terminal train, which does NOT allow carts - but I assure you she will manage just fine, on arrival she needs to head straight for the departures level and the United counter, checking in her bag. She has plenty of time!

    how long does it take to go from terminal E to C

     

    The gate area has, to the left, a connecting walkway to Terminal C, which has in the center gates C14-23 and C24-C27 & C2-14 at either side.

    iam arriving on delta from cvg and flying on virgin australia with a lay over of 37 min,is it enough time?

     

    37 mins is too short a time if you have the following circumstances: (a) If arriving Delta flight is late; (b) If Delta does not transfer your bags to Virgin Australia (in which case you would need to claim your bags at Terminal 5 and re-check them in a the Virgin Australia counter in Terminal 3. Also, as the 9 terminals at LAX are arranged in a U-shape, your terminals are at opposite sides of their parking garages. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text. Pay attention to "Getting around LAX" and beyond.

  • T3 to T2 Connection,

    Arrive T3 Air Croatia 2 hrs to connect to Easyjet T2. Is 2 hrs enough time? Is this a "Schengan or Non Schengan" connection.

     

    Schengen means a country which participated in the Schengen agreement (most European countries did). As non-Schengen you need to go through passport check and may have to get your bags inspected. Follow signs to 'Boarding Area' C (Terminal 2's C gates C1-C7 & C3-C16)- boarding areas are interconnected. You have plenty of time.

     

  • Get from E to A

    Wife and daughter arrive UA1129 12:54 gate E-11, depart AA1300 2:00 A-27. How do they get to Terminal A? thank you.

     

    I presume they arrive at IAH from an international flight - if so, they need to proceed to the International Arrivals Building (follow signs) and go through customs & take the escalator down to Baggage Claim Level 1. From there they go through Exit Control and enter to the right the baggage recheck area which has an escalator down to the Inter-Terminal Train to Terminals A, B & C. HOWEVER, if UA does not transfer bags to AA flight (find out) - they would have to take their bag, after customs clearance, to Terminal A and check them in with AA at their counter, before proceeding to their gate. In both instances, they need to go through security check first. They should be able to make it on time.

     

    They made it. Thank you for your help.
