  • Terminal 4 to 3
    Feb 28, 2013
    Hi, im arriving to terminal 4 and have a conection at delta terminal 3, how do i get there? Is ti reachable by walking? Or where do i catch the airtrain? Thnaks!


    On arrival at JFK at T4, take the 'Airline Terminals Train' (follow signs) to T3, which is the next stop. You need to go through security check at T4 before proceeding to your gate.


  • 50 minutes
    Feb 28, 2013
    Im looking into a connection from Newark to IAD to kuwait, American airlines is giving me 50 min connection time. will that be ok?


    At IAD American Airlines uses Midfield Concourse B; American Eagle uses the Main Terminal & Concourse A. Should you arrive at the Main Terminal, you can walk to the separate Midfield Concourse A/B housing A & B gates on either side. You have enough time.


    Are you sure you're on American? American doesn't fly Newark-IAD or IAD-Kuwait. However, United does. You're probably on United.


  • American to Alaska Airlines
    Feb 28, 2013
    I am flying from Flint, Michigan so they're usually smaller airplanes with American Airlines, then switching to Alaska Airlines to go to Seattle, Washington. I have 55 minutes to get to my connecting flight to Seattle via Alaska Airlines. I see they're both in Term 3, is that the case? So I should have enough time to get from point A to B and not have to re go through security? Originally I was under the impression I was switching terminals until I looked at which terminals are with what airlines. Thanks.


    At ORD you arrive & depart from T3, which has Concourses G, H, K & L with corresponding gates. Look at overhead screens on arrival to find your flight number and gate, then follow signs. You have sufficient transfer time.


    Yes, actually both of your flights will be within Concourse L so it will be an easy connection.


  • Connecting from terminal F to B
    Feb 28, 2013
    I land in terminal F and have to go to terminal B. I understand I can take a shuttle bus to terminal C, and then walk to terminal B. Will I have to go through security? Also I only have an hour and 10 minutes. Is that enough time to make my connecting flight?


    On arrival at Terminal F, The US Airways shuttle bus leaves at gate F14 and arrives at gate C16 - no security check is necessary. While transfer may take up to half an hour you have plenty of time!


  • Cancun - Philadelphia - Madrid
    Feb 27, 2013
    Hi, I'm travelling from Cancun to Madrid, with a 2 hour connection in Philadelphia, is it enough time?? Both flights are with US Airways.


    It should be enough time.


  • YUL-IAD-GVA 1 hour layover
    Feb 27, 2013
    I'm looking at booking this route with United Airlines on Saturday March 16th but am concerned about the 1 hour layover. Since I clear US customs in Montreal and am traveling United all the way through I assume I can head straight to my departure gate at IAD without having to recheck bags or go through any customs. Am I correct in that?


    Yes, arrivals into the US from Canadian destinations with preclearance like Montreal are treated like regular domestic flights.


  • 45 Min Connection
    Feb 27, 2013
    I'm flying in from Cincy to PhL arriving at gate F28 and Leaving out of Gate A20. Is 45min connection time enough to get from F to A via the shuttle? Will the workers at gate A20 give me any leaway or extra time to get there?


    On arrival at PHL, gate F28, take the US Airways shuttle bus at gate F14 to the center of connected Terminals A-East /A-West, at gate A1, then proceed to gate A20 of Terminal A-West. You should make it in time for your connection.


    Feb 27, 2013
    I am flying into Terminal 1 on United and departing from Terminal 2 on US Airways, must I go through security again? Also how long of a walk between the 2 terminals.


    At ORD you have a choice of walking or taking the ATS train, both options, however, require you to go through security check. A pedestrian tunnel connects T1 to T2; the ATS train departs on the upper levels.


    That advice is 100% incorrect. You can walk from T1 to T2 without having to go through security again. There is no "Tunnel" - it's just a regular walkway connecting the terminals


    thanks for reply, but I received to replys one says yes to security and yours no? confused?


    I did not include the third option, thinking it may be too complicated: On thsecured upper level departure, right after you walk from T2's gate F8 past gate F1, at right end a connector to Terminal 1, where you will arrive again in the secured area, and where you should proceed to B or C gates (at gate B6, walk past gate B8 (at right), take walkway to C gates, turn left to gate C15.)

    I have walked from T1 to T2 without going through security dozens of times, The walkway leaves T1 near the Low B gates (around gate B4-B5). Trust me on this one. wefeb is wrong.


  • KLM/Delta to Easyjet connection time?
    Feb 27, 2013
    In a few days I will be flying from Boston on Delta/KLM and arriving at Schiphol at 7:40 a.m. I have a flight to London Southend on Easyjet which leaves at 9:55 a.m. However, there is no baggage agreement between Delta and Easyjet. Is this enough time for me to go through customs, get my bag, and go to the other side of the airport and check in at the Easyjet desk?


    Your transfer time at AMS should suffice: On Arrival at AMS all passengers need to go through Passport Control (follow the signs for 'Baggage Hall' on ground level); go through passport control and poceed to the baggage belts. Claim your bags & go through Customs for security. Thereafter take your bag to the Departures level and check them in with EasyJet. NOTE: Arrivals 1 & 2 areas lead up to Departures 1 & 2; and Arrivals 3 & 4 lead up to Departure 3. Departures 1 uses the B, C & D gates; Departures 2 uses the E gates; Departure 3 uses F, G, H & M gates. (Arrivals 1 & 2 and Arrivals 3 & 4 are on opposite sides of the center.) Gate-to-Gate transfers: B & C gates are at the very right end of the bow-shaped terminal; north of it are the C gates arranged in a Y-shape; around the bend are the E gates, followed in the center by the F gates; right thereafter is entry to the G, H & M gates (G gates are to the right, H & M gates to the left). Walking time from the entry of B or C gates all the way over to the entry of G, H or M gates would take about 15 mins.


  • Zurich to IAD to EWR to ABE
    Feb 27, 2013
    Couple in mid 60's (medium speed walkers) have only 1hr 45min to make IAD connection to Newark!! We are supposed to arrive at IAD 3:05 PM on Wed. May 1st!! What are the odds we will be spending the night in Dulles?? United dropped the flight I had originally booked from IAD to ABE which would have given us a much longer connection time! It seems we have no other options! -- Thanx


    You should be able to make your connection in time. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iad, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text. Pay attention to "International Arrivals", "Getting Around" and terminals. Note that after customs clearance procedure, you cannot take the train, but need to take the shuttle bus, meaning that at your connecting terminal you will have to go through security check. (Dulles Airport is located 26 miles from Washington D.C.) If you want to stay overnight, I suggest you search for 'Dulles hotels' - there is no on-airport hotel.


    1 hr 45 is sufficient for any domestic connection at Dulles.

  • transfer of Baggage & natureof checkings
    Feb 26, 2013
    I am proceeding From Memphis to Hyderabad on 1st Mar By 6-00 am.byAmerican eagle airlines arrivng in T3..I have to board Air India flight No AI 0126 in T5. Wiil you please clear me about my baggage transfer to air india flight.In myonward Journy to Memphis the baggage checked in Hyderabad ia delivered at Baggage claim at Memphis. Is this same practice wiil fallow in my return Journy to Hyderabad. At Delhi Layover time is hardly 1.5 Hours. Is it sufficent to re board the plane. Finally pl answer what checkings i have to clear at Chcago and Delhi. Please reply. Thanking you. gopalakrishna


    If you bought your tickets on one reservation then American will transfer your bag to Air India. Make sure the bag is checked through to HYD when you check it in Memphis. You just have to get yourself from T3 to T5 in ORD via the ATS train, make sure you have your Air India boarding pass, and then go through security. On the return to Chicago, you will go through US immigration in Terminal 5, then re-check the bag with American and then take the ATS train to T3 and go through security there.


  • Tight connection to BZE/Belize flight
    Feb 27, 2013
    I'm traveling San Jose, CA to Belize City, all on AA. The connection is 50 minutes, arriving Term A and departing Term D. How difficult is the connection and which is quickest way to get to the gate?


    At DFW, the free Skylink train runs inside the post-security area of each of the five terminals, starting at the International Terminal D at gates D2, D20, D25 & D34, and connecting to the other terminals by two Skylink stations each (close to the left and right end). It runs every 2 mins and takes about 5 minutes of transfer time on average. At TA it stops between A13-16 & A29-34.


    Take the Skylink train, it should take no more than 15-20 minutes to get between your gates.


  • 30 minutes to get to next flight
    Feb 26, 2013
    Hi. I just realized we have 30 minutes to get to the next gate on our flight from Chicago (ORD) to Panama City (PTY) on 3-30-13 with a layover in Houston. Can anyone give me an idea if this is even possible? I booked thru Travelocity, so I assumed this was doable otherwise I would not have been able to book this flight. Does any one know the gate numbers that my flight might arrive at and depart from? Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated! Andy...


    I'm assuming both of your flights are on United. Your arrival will be into terminal C or E and your Panama City flight will probably depart from E.


  • southwest to vegas
    Mar 7, 2013
    i will be flying us air from asheville to charlotte then fling southwest to vegas. when i arrive from asheville to charlotte can i go straight to the southwest boarding gate (ill already have my boarding pass) or do i need to go through security again to have my carry on rechecked before heading to southwest gates? Will southwest gates be where airtran currently is?


    Yes, all gates at CLT are connected beyond security so you can just go to the gate. The Southwest gates will probably be where the Airtran ones are now, but there's no guarantee of that.


    SWA gates will be A4 & A6 (where Airtran is now). You will probably arrive in the E concourse on USAir. If you check a bag plane side with USAir they will bring it up. But if you check one curbside or at the ticket counter you will have to go outside of security to baggage claim and get it and then go to SWA ticket counter and check it and then go back through security. Check both carriers carry restrictions. SWA will not bring a planeside checked bag back up on your return.
