    I am flying from DTW on United Airlines to ORD, and only have an hour an a half layover before flying to EWR. I land in terminal 2, and fly out of terminal 1. Will I have enough time? Will I have to go through security between terminals, and how long is the walk between terminals?

     

    You have plenty of time. There is a walkway connecting the two terminals inside security. Your DTW flight may arrive in Terminal 1 anyway. The walk from T2 to T1 takes about 5-10 minutes.

    I am flying from DTW through AMS with the final destination OTP a. Will I have to go through customs in AMS a or OTP? And do I have to collect my bagged and recheck it in AMS? Thank You! :)

     

    Since you will not be entering the Schengen zone you will not go through customs or do anything with your baggage in Amsterdam. You will just go through security at your departure gate to Bucharest.

    I arrive London Heathrow from Madrid at 0950 (dont know which terminal) and leave terminal 5 at 1120 for Chicago. Is there time time for this connection (ie 1hr 30 ) and do i have to go thro security again.

     

    This question can't be answered unless we know what airlines you are flying

     

    Hi Zap sorry about that - Flt American 8816 operated by Iberia from Madrid to LHR dep 0820 arr 0950 and then Flt American 6195 operated by BA dep LHR 1120 arr O'Hare 1345.

     

    Both flights will be in Terminal 5. Yes you will have to go through security but you will not have to go through UK Immigration.

     

    Once many thanks for your excellent input - just one thing more will we have enough time for the connection at Heathrow ?

    Is there any (easy) way to get from terminal B to terminal C WITHOUT having to go through security AGAIN?

     

    No, there is not, no terminals at BOS are connected inside security.

    US citizen flying Delta from Ireland with pre clearance in Dublin arriving at 13.40 in T4 trying to get Jet Blue in T5 to San Juan on the 14.59 flight. Is it too little time? Thanks

     

    No, that should be enough time. Check in for your San Juan flight online before you leave Dublin.

     

    Thanks Zap, what if I have to check baggage?

     

    It may be difficult with checked bags, you'll have to get them to T5 by 14:19 That would leave you 39 minutes to claim your bags and get to T5, assuming your flight from Dublin is on-time.

    Arriving at IAH on United 984 from Heathrow on August 15 @ 4:05pm. Leaving on United 1015 to Sacramento @ 5;50pm. How do I collect my bags-go through customs-get to my next domestic flight?

     

    You will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check the bags at the transfer desk, go to the departure level, go through security and to your departure gate.

    Hello, I'm travelling from Quebec city to Colombia. I have one stop in PHL and another one in Miami. Do I need to pick up my luggage at some point? I don't think we have US customs in YQB airport.. will I need to take my luggage in PHL? thank you

     

    And then when I will arrive in MIAMI, do I need to take my luggage again since i'm going to Colombia or the luggage will go by themself to Colombia from miami?

     

    Yes, in Philadelphia you will collect your baggage to go through US Customs then re-check it at the transfer desk. You will not have to do anything with it in Miami.

    Hi, we are flying on Ukraine International arriving at 13:45 we have a connecting flight at 15:45 on jet blue. Is there enough time to make the connection? Tickets were bought separately

     

    That will be very difficult. The Ukraine International flights are frequently delayed and you will have to clear Immigration and Customs and take your bags on the AirTrain to Terminal 5 and check them all in 1 hour.

    Hello I have my flight going from Paris to Quito through Miami and I was wondering if in Miami I had to collect my luggage and drop it again? Or will the luggage go straight to Quito (Ecuador)?

     

    Since you are on an International to International connection, AA policy at MIA is that you do not have to claim your bags to go through US Customs. However, confirm that with the AA agents in Paris and Miami.

    My daughter will be flying into the PHA on Tues from MOntreal. She will have checked bags do they go straight through to her final destination which is the Pittsburgh airport.?

     

    Yes, she will go through US Immigration and Customs in Montreal and won't have to do anything with her bags again until she gets to Pittsburgh.

    Hey there, I fly in from San Diego and arrive in IAD at 9:05 Pm. I then need to catch my flight to Toronto which leaves at 10:08 PM. Is this enough time? I'm just not sure if I need to go through customs/immigration and re-check in bags when I arrive in IAD. Thanks!

     

    You do not go through US Immigration when leaving the US. All you have to di is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

     

  • LAX terminal change

    I am on a flight coming from PHX to LAX arriving at 7:08 am (terminal 4), however my connection flight is in Terminal 6 and it departs at 8:10 am. The kicker is that I have to check in because I'm switching airline. Do I need to be concerned?

     

    What airlines are you flying? If you do have to collect and re-check your baggage you won't have enough time. If you won't have checked bags you can do it if you check in online before you leave Phoenix.

    I am coming from Florence(Italy) in Alitalia and landing on terminal 1 at 19:45 pm. I have connecting flight Emirates to Dubai at 20:45 pm from terminal 3. I need to know if i need to claim the baggage ? how much time security check would take ? Is it possible to make everything in 1 hours. Appreciate your help.

     

    i really need to know above questions answer,

     

    If you purchased your tickets together you have enough time as your bags will be transferred to Emirates, you just need to RUN to the Emirates transfer desk. If you purchased two separate tickets you have no chance, you need to get an earlier flight to Rome.

     

    Thanks ZAP. I have got the tickets together so my bags got transferred to final place. The moment i got down at domestic i started running and reached to skybus 7-8 mins (terminal signs are very clear, no need to ask) then 5 mins in passport control, Pretty much 15 mins i reached to emirates desk where i got the actual boarding pass and was in front of boarding gate. People kept coming i believe next 30 mins. So 1 hour is sufficient unless something happens unexpectedly

    Is 62 minutes enough time to make my connection from LEX Bluegrass thru DFW to Incheon Seoul, Korea?

     

    Yes, it should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all terminals inside security.
