    Yes, there is a train.

     

  • layover time and assistance

    I am flyig in from Milwaukee to Dallas and then to Tuscon. We arrive @ Dallas 8:55 and flight to Tuscon leaves @ 9:45. Will we have enough time to make the transfer. Also when we get off the plane is there assistance there if needed. I am traveling with my 89 yr old Mom. She still gets around good but I am just wondering about this.

     

    Yes, that is enough time. The SkyTrain connects all terminals inside security. I don't know what type of assistance you're asking about.

  • Does a British Air flight, LHR to Madrid operated by Iberia

    Arriving on a BA flight from the USA, connecting on a BA-numbered flight operated by Iberia to Madrid: does this second flight depart from Terminal 5, and if so is a 1 hr 30 min layover enough time?

     

    Hi. I have 2 separate tickets for KL to London (Emirates) and London to Detroit (Delta) and will need to connect from Terminal 3 to Terminal 4. If I cannot check through my luggage from KL to Detroit, how long of a transit time would I need to go through immigration, collect my luggage from Terminal 3, make my way to Terminal 4 and etc? What would the whole process be like? Thank you.

     

  • Zurich to Phl to Phx: PHL terminals, security, time
    Feb 27, 2015

    Arriving from Zurich on British Air with a 1 hr 55 min layover, departing on Brit Air operated by US Air: I would come in at Term A west? Leaving from A east? B? or C? I have to go through customs and immigration; do I also have to go through security (and is A to C outside security?)? Is that adequate time?

     

    Note that both flights will be operated by US Airways. Yes, everyone has to go through security after going through customs. You won't know your exact departure terminal until the day of your flight.

    Yes, that should be enough time.

  • YYZ - ORD - DFW

    Right now the gate information is showing that our United flight from YYZ to ORD is coming in to Terminal 5 - the International Terminal. Our connecting flight is with American Airlines and I have 62 minutes to make the connecting flight out of Terminal 3.....is this enough time and do we have to go through Security again?

     

    Your flight from Toronto will not arrive in Terminal 5. You will go through US Immigration and Preclearance in Toronto. You will arrive in Terminal 1 or 2, likely 1. Is your booking on American separate or was it booked together? Will you have checked bags? You can walk between Terminals 1, 2, and 3, inside security, but if you have checked bags you will have to claim them from T1 and take them to T3 to re-check which will be difficult in the time you have.

     

    The booking was together and we will not have checked bags.

     

    Then just check in for your AA flight on AA.com before you leave Toronto, walk from T1 or T2 to T3, and board your plane, you should have enough time.

    Hi, I am arriving in Dallas on a Qantas flight on Sunday 8th of March at 1:45pm from Sydney. I have a connecting flight to MKE 90 minutes latter. Is this possible? What are the crowds like on Sunday afternoons in March. First time visitor. Thank you

     

    It's possible but it's certainly pushing it. People have reported that the immigration lines at DFW are getting pretty bad. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security then take the skylink train to your departure terminal.

     

  • Short layover time

    In May, I am flying from Boston on Delta to Cologne via Amsterdam. My layover is only 50 minutes. Do I have to go thru passport control or do I proceed immediately to my gate? I am not checking luggage.

     

    Yes, you will have to go through passport control and security. This connection is still possible if your first flight is on-time but leaves very little time to spare if there is a delay.

    Hi I'm flying airnz into TBIT at 12.30pm, and would like to fly Avianca to Guatemala City at 2.05pm from terminal 2. The tickets for the Avianca flight will be booked separately. Am I right in thinking this is far too tight? Many thanks, David

     

    Yes, I think it would be very difficult.

    Hullo I'll be flying from YQB to BOS in September with a 2hr layover in PHL. I'm an Australian citizen.Three part question: Will I go through immigration in PHL or BOS? Will I be claiming baggage between flights, and will two hours be enough time to make the connection? Cheers

     

    In Philadelphia, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. 2 hours should be enough time.

    Hi, I have a stop over in PHL coming from Munich an dgoing to Orlando. I just realized that I need to go through customs in PHL and get my luggage and check back in. If all goes according to the plan, I have 2:25 hours time. Would that be enough? Thanks in advance.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

     

  • Internation-domestic 90 minute connection?
    Mar 1, 2015

    Hi, I've booked a connecting ticket together through a travel agent from Taipei (eva air) to seattle and then have 90 minutes to clear customs, (pick up bags or are they transferred through to the next flight?) and take a domestic flight to Alaska on airliner. This is all around 730 pm. Sound impossible?

     

    If you purchased your tickets together and your bags are tagged through to your final destination, then you can re-check your bags at the transfer desk after clearing customs in the S Satellite, then go through security and take the underground trains to your departure gate. you should have enough time.

     

    Thx zap! The tickets were purchased together, but because its international going to domestic and different airlines, would they tag our bags through to the final destination?

     

    They tag your bags to your final destination but you will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs then re-check at the transfer desk afterwards.

     

  • Passport check before non-Schengen gates D

    I will have to transfer from a non-Schengen flight (gates H) to a flight to Bucharest in a non-Schengen gate D27. I read there is a passport control before D gates, but can't find if it is also in the way to the downstairs non-Schengen D gates. Will I have to wait at the passport control for these gates? Thanks.

     

  • SFO-SEA then SEA-NRT (Narita)-Singapore (1 hr 7 min layover)

    Both SFO-SEA (arriving 11:35 AM) and SEA-NRT (departing 12:42 PM) flights are with Delta. Do we have enough time to make it to the international flight? I suppose we can check through (SEA-NRT-SG) our luggage at SFO, right? Many thanks!

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All you have to do in Seattle is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should not have to touch your baggage again until you get to Singapore.
