    if I come in on an Alaska flight and need to switch to southwest do I need to go through security??/ no checked bag

     

    As long as you check in online for your Southwest flight and print out your boarding pass, no you do not have to go through security. All gates in Seattle are connected inside security.

     

    Thank you!

    I have a newark to paris flight on La Compagnie that arrives at 9:55 am in Terminal 1, i need to go through immigration, collect bags customs and than recheck baggage at terminal 2 G for a flight on air france to hamburg departing at 12:35.... do i have enough time??

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. Just take the CDGVAL from T1 to T2 after claiming your bags.

     

  • Arriving Delta departing UAL

    How easy or difficult is it to get from Terminal 5 to Terminal 7 in under 30 minutes? No checked bags.

     

    Check in for your United flight online, by the time you arrive in LAX it will be past the check-in cutoff. Hope that the Delta flight is on-time and RUN. You can avoid having to go through security by taking the tunnel from T5 to T6, then going to the base of T6 and walking to T7 or T8 where your United flight will depart. If you haven't booked this yet, I wouldn't advise trying it, but it is possible if everything goes perfectly.

     

  • LHR to LAS via. DFW

    Hi Guys, On April 30th I will be travelling on AA51 from LHR to DFW arriving at 1:40pm local time, I will then be transferring to AA2441 from DFW to LAS scheduled to depart at 3:20pm Local Time. I am a UK citizen (ESTA Approved) and will be travelling with hand baggage only (only a 3 day visit) can you give me a steer on if this should be enough time? Both flights were booked with AA direct as a Indirect flight to LAS from LHR. If there are any tips / tricks to ease the transfer that would be appreciated.

     

    Yes, this should be plenty of time. Often there is a lane for passengers with no checked luggage, so that would save you some time. You will arrive in Terminal D where you will go through Immigration and Customs. You can then go back through security there and take the SkyLink train to your departure terminal (which will probably be A or C.

     

  • Connection from SYD (UA) to BOG (AV)

    I arrive from SYD at 6:30 AM flight to connect to AV at 8:45 to Bogota .. will 2:25 connecting time be sufficient ?

     

    That should be enough time but it doesn't leave much time if your first flight is delayed. You will likely arrive in the International Terminal (United flights from Australia have been arriving there recently), go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through Customs, then if you purchased your tickets together and your bags are tagged through to BOG, follow the signs for connecting passengers and re-check your bags at the transfer desk, otherwise go to the left out of the terminal and take your bags with you to Terminal 2 where you will have to re-check your bags with Avianca at the check in counter.

     

  • KLM Frankfurt to EasyJet Venice

    We are trying to get from Frankfurt (Heidelberg) to Venice. How much time would we need to make a connection from a KLM flight from Frankfurt to an EasyJet flight to Venice. Do we have to collect our luggage? How many check points?

     

    Yes, you will have to claim your baggage from KLM then re-check it with EasyJet. You would need at least 90 minutes, preferably 2 hours for your transfer.

     

  • Icelandair arrival then United departure

    I purchased 2 separate tickets for travel on 5/27: one is from Icelandair, arriving JFK at 12:30pm, then depart JFK on United at 2pm. Would I have enough time to clear customs, pick up baggage, check in, go through security for the 2pm United flight? Both airlines are located in Terminal 7. Please advise. Thanks!

     

    You will have to hope your Icelandair flight is on-time and lines at customs and Immigration are short in order to make it.

     

  • Cancun to Johannesburg with 1 hour 20 minute layover in IAD
    Apr 16, 2015

    Hello! I know this is going to be tight, but is it possible? I land in IAD from Cancun on United. I have Global Entry and will not have to wait for any checked bags. Do you think I can land in Concourse C, go through immigration, and then get back through security to catch a flight on South African Airways at Concourse B, all in 1 hour and 20 minutes? I assume after going though immigration I have to go through security again right?

     

    Without checked bags and with Gloal Entry I do think it is possible. Obviously very little time to spare if the Cancun flight is delayed though.

    is 30 min enough time to get from get A64 to A6 at DTW?

     

    Yes, there is a train from one end of the A concourse to the other that can get you there in less than 10 minutes. It obviously leaves little time to spare if the first flight is delayed.

     

  • Can you walk from D to E?

    Can you walk behind security from Terminal D to Terminal E?

     

    Yes, you can. However, if you are arriving in Terminal D, it means you will be arriving on an International flight and have to go through US Immigration and Customs, which means you will be outside security when that process is finished.

     

    Thanks!

     

  • PTY To LA (New Orleans)

    Hello, We will be flying coming from Panama (PTY), Landing In Houston and then leaving to New Orleans (LA) with 2 adults and 2 children. Our proposed layover will be 1:25 minutes with United. Will there be enough time to catch the second flight?

     

    That is 5 minutes shorter than the recommended time for that connection. However, it is likely possible and United flies lots of flights from IAH to New Orleans that you can be rebooked on if you miss your connection.

     

  • JFK Finnair Terminal 8 to JetBlue Terminal 5

    I will be arriving at JFK, 3:50 p.m. at Terminal 8 and would like to make a connecting reservation with JetBlue departing at 5:55 p.m. on a Sunday afternoon in August. Will I have enough time to get my bags, get through immigration and customs and make it to Terminal 5 to check my bag and get through security? I am not familiar with JFK so there will be disorientation to take into consideration as well. Thanks

     

    That would probably be barely possible. It would definitely be pushing it if there are any delays at all.

    That should be enough time.

    Flying from Houston to Atlanta and then to Jamaica. I see we only have 1 hour layover in Atlanta. Is this enough time to change terminals for international flight?

     

    You don't actually have to change terminals. You just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse in E or F. You have enough time.
