  • IAH to SFO to ICN
    Apr 14, 2014
    I am flying from IAH through SFO connecting to ICN. I am scheduled to arrive at 9:44am and flight departs for ICN at 10:50. United airlines with bags connected through to ICN. Sitting in first class to SFO so will be first off. Can I make this connnection?


    You arrive at Terminal 3 - look for signs to AirTrain, board the train to the International Terminal, where you need to go through security check and on to Boarding Area A (gates 1 - 12). Your transfer time should suffice.


    Ignore saapr. You DO NOT have to go on the airtrain! United has a secure-side walkway between Terminal 3 and their portion of the International Terminal.


    Thanks for the information. So I don't have to clear security again, right? Sounds like I should make it if that is the case. I could go for the flight two ours later but would rather not.


    Yes, if you use the walkway you will not have to go through security again.


  • Connect time for International Flight (Lufthansa) is 50 mins @ IAD
    Apr 11, 2014
    My flight connect time @ IAD is 50 minutes for the International Flight - Lufthansa. Route (Austin - Washington - Frankfurt - Bangalore). I am concerned if this time would be sufficient to make it ? What can be done to ensure i make it to transit quick,? Will you be able to share information on the terminal & pre-caution in case i run late. Appreciate any help to clarify. Flight Arrival (LH 9078) @ IAD - 9 PM (Apr 16) Flight Depart (LH 9238) @ IAD - 9:50 PM (Apr 16)


    Both of your flights will be operated by United, not Lufthansa. All you have to do at IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate and both will likely be on the C/D concourse. You should have enough time as long as your first flight is on-time. Since all you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, the only thing you can do to speed things along is run!


    :-) Thank You.


  • Connection Times
    Apr 11, 2014
    I'm flying London UK to Denver on United. The schedule gives a 1hr connection time at IAD. United say this is OK. Is it ???


    No, if your connection time on LHR-IAD-DEN is only one hour then, no, that's not sufficient. You need at least 90 minutes. It would be sufficient on DEN-IAD-LHR.


  • Rome to Chicago/Bloomington
    Apr 11, 2014
    I fly Rome to Chicago with connection to Bloomington/Normal. I arrive terminal 5 . Will I have to clear security again to terminal 3. someone tell me not take tramway to walk . What you say ?


    Forgot to ask will I have to recheck my luggage .. will someone tell me what I should expect whole thing to cause me


    Yes, after you arrive from Rome you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, then go through US Customs, then re-check your bags. Then you will take the ATS train to Terminal 3 where you will go through security and to your gate. You cannot walk between T5 and T3.


  • Skopje to Barcelona via Rome
    Apr 11, 2014
    Hello I am arriving from Skopje at FCO in 7:20, and then departure for Barcelona at 8:30. I come from Macedonia, non Schengen conutry. Will I have enough time to make the transit?


    That should be enough time, assuming both of your flights are on Alitalia or within the same alliance.


  • Connection time
    Apr 11, 2014
    Is a 2 hour layover enough time to connect when you are arriving ATL on an International flight


    Yes, it should be.


    ATL is huge - with 9 terminals - for international arrival procedure and domestic or international flight connections, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/atl then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    Actually, ATL does not have 9 terminals, it has 9 concourses.


  • rome to santorini / terminal 1 to terminal 3
    Apr 11, 2014
    Hello, taking Ailitalia flight from jfk to rome with scheduled arrival time 6:35AM then want flight from rome to Santorini. There is one at 9:50AM out of terminal 3 on airberlin. Do we have enough time for that connection??? Will we have to clear customs and go through security again? Otherwise, next flight is at 5:40PM. Thanks for help


    Yes, you will have to go through Schengen immigration, customs, and security. Also, Air Berlin does not fly from Rome to Santorini. That flight is likely operated by Meridiana.


    However, 3+ hours should be plenty of time.


  • Do I go through security again?
    Apr 14, 2014
    I am coming into terminal 3 at ORD on American Airlines and connecting in terminal 2 for US AIRWAYS. Do I pass through security again? I did last time I was at ORD but really felt like I made a mistake somewhere since it was my first time there.


    At ORD, you may use either the walkways at post-security areas of Departures level (follow signs) - at T3 the walkway is near Concourse G. (Taking the ATS train would require you to go through security check).


    Thank you!! that was the mistake I made.... I took the TRAM and wasted a lot of time and energy.


  • Enough transfer time?
    Apr 11, 2014
    I'm flying from Raleigh Durham to PHL and have 1,5 houres to catch my flight to Amsterdam (AMS). Will this be enough time?


    If flight is on time, transfer time of 1.5 hrs should suffice. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/phl then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • T5 to TBIT Short connection 1:28 Hrs
    Apr 12, 2014
    Hi, we're flying in from San Diego with Delta (SkyWest) Connection and will arrive at T5 at 12:22 PM. Then we'll have to go to TBIT to catch our KLM flight to AMS at 01:50 PM. We are travelling on complete KLM/Delta Itinerary and will check in our bags at SAN. - Will that be enough time to transfer from T5 to TBIT and what is the best way to get there? - Will our bags be checked through? - Will there be another Security Check?


    If you bought your two flights on one ticket, your bags should be automatically transferred (but make sure by contacting SkyWest)- if not, you would have to load your bag on a trolly and check it in at TBIT. Your only option to get from T5 to TBIT is to exit T5, and walk to the left past T4 & around the bend to TBIT - at most a 10-minute walk) where you need to go through security check and on to your gate. You need to hurry!


    Yes, your bags should be checked through, you won't have to do anything with them in LAX. The fastest way between T5 and the TBIT is to walk along the lower level curbfront (walk to the left as you exit T5, against the flow of vehicle traffic).


    Thanks for responding!


  • Boston to Chicago
    Apr 11, 2014
    I am coming to Chicago from Boston on american and have a connecting flight to Knoxville 45 minuteson US AIR. Do i have an enough time to connectr?


    While US Airways is in Terminal 2 (T2), American is in T3 - use walkway at past-security areas of Departures level (follow signs)and hurry.


    Both of your flights will be on American/American Eagle and will be in Terminal 3.

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. You will not have to go through security in Chicago. Both flights will be in Terminal 1.


  • BZE to IAH to DEN layover questions
    Apr 10, 2014
    BZE to IAH to DEN. I'm trying to select a flight. Most of my options have short (35m) layovers or really long (11hr) layovers. I can't make it to the Belize airport for a late morning flight so that leaves me only one real option. I can fly from BZE to IAH have 2hr 22m then fly from IAH to DEN. I am assuming I'll have to do immigration, collect my bag, customs, recheck my bags before my next flight (right?) Is 2hr 22m enough time? If i miss my flight there isn't another one until the next day, but United said I could reschedule at no charge (i called them) Thanks!!


    the 2hr 22m transfer time is quite sufficient. International Arrivals at IAH arrive either at Terminals D or E. From there they go through secure corridors, walk across the sky bridges to adjoining Federal Inspection Services (FIS), where they will claim baggage & clear U.S. Customs. To continue your journey, re-check in your baggage at the recheck counters and proceed to the Arrivals Lobby, where an escalator down to the Inter-Terminal Train will take you to your connecting terminal. (United uses Terminals A, B, C & E).


  • detroit to seattle on southwest change planes in den to southwest also
    Apr 10, 2014
    I am flying from DTW to Den on southwest and must change planes in Den to seattle. can anyone tell me what concourse southwest flight would come in at and how far is the connecting gate for southwest to change planes to seattle? are they both in the same concourse? I only have 40 minutes if all is on time?


    Both flights will be on concourse C, which is not that large. If your first flight is on-time you will have enough time.


  • BNA United to IAD Lufthansa Transfer
    Apr 10, 2014
    We arrive at Dulles from Nashville at 3:56 on United 3400. Don't know the gate/concourse. Our connecting flight to Frankfurt on Lufthansa 9051 departs Dulles at 5:15. Again I don't know the gate/concourse. Will we have enough time to make our connection. What concourse does Lufthansa usually depart from?


    You will likely arrive in the A concourse. Lufthansa flights depart from the B concourse. A and B are directly connected. If your first flight is on-time you should have enough time.
