  • Enough Time
    Aug 12, 2014

    I need to know if I have enough time to get from UA 5387 to Alaska 157 if I arrive at LAX at 6:57 p.m. and depart on the Alaska flight at 7:45 p.m. I don't know where either airline is located. I will have checked my bag all the way when I depart San Luis Obispo for LAX.

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 8 and depart from Terminal 6. They are connected inside security. However, you will absolutely have to check-in for your Alaska flight online before you leave on your United flight. This itinerary also leaves little to no time for any delays.

     

    Thanks for the information. It was very helpful.

     

  • YYZ (Toronto) to DTW to SFO

    Hi I have a 1 hr 10 min layover in DTW. Will I need to collect and re-check my luggage in once I get to Detroit? If so, is 1 hr enough time to make it to my connecting flight to SFO? Thanks!

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration in Toronto. Your arrival into DTW will be like a domestic flight. If both flights are on Delta you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate which will both be in the McNamara Terminal.

    Is it possible to make a connection from Icelandair Fl631 arriving at 5:40pm to a usairways Fl224 leaving for Chicago at 7:55pm.

     

    It will be very very difficult. First, note that your flight to Chicago will likely be operated by American. Secondly You will have to change terminals, re-check your bags, and go through security. It's possible if you don't have checked bags and you check in for your flight to Chicago before leaving Iceland, but will be very difficult any other way.

     

    You'll arrive at terminal E, and depart from terminal B if US airways or American. I would think two hours should be plenty of time, especially if you've a) booked both flights on the same reservation, and b) check in online first. Bonus if you're US Global Entry. Might take too long if you have a 'suspicious' passport/visa from elsewhere. You'll need to clear US customs, get your bag, and leave it at the luggage desk at the customs exit -- IF your bags are checked all the way through. Then just catch a free shuttle to terminal B. They run often, and terminal B will be the 2nd stop (after terminal A.)

     

  • Connecting flight times

    On my return flight from LAX (through PHL) I have 1h 35min to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh, will this be enough time and what is the procedure if for some reason I don't make the connecting flight due to queues in transfer or for another reason? Since the ticket is booked as a connecting flight, will I be transferred onto a different flight?

     

    THere will be no queues. All you have to do in PHL when leaving the US is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate which will be connected beyond security. However, if you did miss your connection due to a delayed inbound flight you would be rebooked either on the flight the next day to EDI or on a later flight to Europe and then connect in Europe to EDI (there is only one PHL-EDI flight daily).

     

  • Jetblue to Delta luggage check through

    Hi, we arrive at JFK terminal 5 with a Jetblue flight and we have connection with Delta flight at terminal 4. Is there a direct connection/shuttle inside secure area from T5 and T4? Is there an interline baggage agreement between Jetblue and Delta not to reclaim and recheck bags? Thanks!

     

    There is no secure connector between T4 and T4. There is no interline baggage agreement between JetBlue and Delta. You will need at least 2 hours to make your transfer.

    I am flying from Paris to Quebec with a stop in Philadelphia. My flight gets into Philadelphia at 13.40 at terminal A and leaves again at 15.10 from terminal F. both flights are with us airways....will I need to claim my luggage and check it in again after clearing customs? Is this enough time (1h30)? I have never done a connecting flight or been to Philadelphia airport. Are terminal A and F very far apart? Thank you very much

     

    Yes, you will have to claim your baggage after US Immigration, go through US Customs, then re-check it with US Airways. Yes, it should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. Terminal F is connected to the other terminals by a shuttle bus that runs inside security.

    is 1.5 hours enough time to arrive by united at terminal c from florida and depart for edmonton at terminal c and if so where is the departure level in relation to the arrival level. Will i need to go through security again as i would have gone through it in florida.

     

    Both of your flights are the same level. You do not have to go through security. You only have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.

    Hi, I'm coming from LAS and have a onward flight to AMS. The connecting time between these two flights will be 42 minutes. Is it possible to make it? Thanks!

     

    Yes, that is very possible. All Delta gates are connected inside security at MSP.

     

  • TBIT to T3

    i read a lot about that topic, but i'm still not sure if we should take the following flight: we'll arrive at 12:40pm at TBIT from Germany and must do the immigration, pick up our baggages and all of that. now, we are thinking to take a flight to Las Vegas. It would be enough time to get the connecting flight at 4:05 pm (virgin america. we must do the check in at least 3:20pm) or should we take the flight at 6:40? thank you for response

     

    You should be fine with the 4:05 flight. You will be out of customs at the TBIT by 1:40 at the latest and it's only a 5 minute walk to T3.

     

    Thank you ZAP :)

    have just 2 hours from virgin flight landing before delta flight takes off - have seen on other forums that staff can give you a fast track ticket to cut the immigration wait - how do i get one please?

     

    2 hours is not a short enough connection to require such a pass. You should have plenty of time.

  • Aeroflot_JetBlue, separate tickets
    Aug 10, 2014

    Hi, we bought separate tickets and fly from Moscow to New York, JFK on August, 18 with Aeroflot. We are arriving to JFK at 5:20 at Terminal 1. The next flight to Salt Lake will be at 8:29 p.m. at Terminal 5 with JetBlue airlines. Do you think we'll have enough time to get on a plane on time, considering customs and registering? Thanks in advance! Should we buy new tickets if we are not going to make it on time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You can check in online for your Jetblue flight before you leave Russia and that will save you a little time at check-in.

     

    Thank you!!!

     

  • Do we have to go through security for our connecting flight?

    Hi, we're arriving at the International terminal and have a connecting flight in Terminal B, both with US Airways. Do we have to go through security after clearing immigration and customs or can we get to Terminal B without having to go through security?

     

    After you clear customs you will be outside security. You will have to go through security before your connecting flight.

     

    thanks
