  • 20 minute connection flight
    Apr 3, 2014
    1
    I am thinking about flying with U.S Airways down to Knoxville from Chicago with a 40 minute connection time in PHL. Would I have enough time to make it from my gate to the connecting U.S Airways flight in time?

     

    It doesn't leave much room for delays, but it's possible, barely.

    I just booked Hawaiian T5 landing at 6:55 am and was thinking of booking Delta T4 departing at 8:12 am. All domestic flights. I am from NYC and will NOT have any checked baggage. Just didn't want to book a 3 hour layover if it can be avoided.

     

    It's possible but it's essential that you check in online for your Delta flight before you depart on your Hawaiian flight. Also, it levaes almost no time for delays.

  • Transfer time advice- enough time or not for domestic transfer

    Hello, I will be travelling from Sydney to Rome on Etihad Business class, arriving 6.25am on Christmas day. I am wanting to travel to Venice that morning (separate itinerary) on Alitalia. There is a flight at 10.10am I would like to take, as the next available flight is after 2pm. Do you think there is enough time to make that 10.10am flight (if my arrival flight is on or close to time)? I can't seem to find which terminal Etihad flies in to. Thanks.

     

    That should be plenty of time. Your Etihad flight will arrive in Terminal 3.

     

    Thanks ZAP. Much appreciated.

     

  • 55 Mins From B to E

    I know, not alot of time but airlines changed times cutting into my transfer time. Flying AA into Logan in biz class (off plane first) in TB and have 55 mins to get to TE for Air Lingus. I have Global Entry thus priority for security, etc. Wondering if shuttle or feet is the quickest route. Also, if on foot, best route via TA or TC? Can I even go via TC? Maps are confusing. Thanks!

     

    As BOS has no post-security transfers between terminals, your options are taking shuttle bus 11 (serving all terminals) or walking (by passing TC to TE (Volpe T); in both instances you still will need to go through security check. If AA arrives on time, you should be able to make it either way.

     

    Thank you for your feedback. Much appreciated.

     

  • Connecting at JFK - FCO - PMO.

    2 hour layover in FCO. If I am flying into T3 and leaving out of T1 or vice versa, what is the best procedure for this? Thank you anyone for help!

     

    You have enough transfer time. When connecting from gate to gate, follow signs to "Boarding Area" (gates B through H). Terminal 1 has Boarding Area B, Terminal 3 has Boarding areas D & H (D & H gates).

     

  • EWR transfer for flight CMH-EWR-NRT
    Apr 2, 2014

    Hi, Need information about the transfer procedure at EWR. I am flying with UA from CMH-EWR-NRT. The flight is using United express from CMB, UA 3874. The transit at EWR is 2 hours. What should i do on arrival at EWR? Do I need to go through security check again? Do I need to change terminal? Is 2 hours enough to do transfer? What time does the restaurant at EWR open due flight will arrive EWR at 8am

     

    At EWR, United Express uses both TA & TC for its domestic arrival & departures, your international departure with United is in Terminal C. You can take the shuttle bus between TA & TC - at TA (near gate A28), TC (near gate C71) - no security check needed.

     

  • Transfering from a domestic flight to the international terminal
    Apr 2, 2014

    I am taking an international flight in a few weeks. Because it's international, I'm assuming it will fly out of terminal 5. I live 3 hours from Chicago and am considering being a separate flight from our small airport into Chicago. I found one that would arrive at 10:55am. Since it's domestic, I'm assuming it will fly somewhere besides terminal 5. The international flight leaves at 12:35pm Is 10:55am to 12:35pm (i.e., 1hour 40 minutes) enough time to transfer from one of the DOMESTIC terminals to terminal 5? Since it would be a separate flight, I don't know if I would have to get baggage? Do I have to go back through security at Terminal 5 anyway? What is the usual turnaround time for security in Terminal 5...this is a Tuesday am...if that makes a difference. Thanks!

     

    P.S. The last time my husband bought a separate ticket like this they DID transfer the bags the whole way. The action I am considering is actually identical to what he did last time.

     

    Only some international departures use T5. United, American, Lufthansa, ANA, Air Berlin and Qatar Airways intl departures use T1 or T3. Tell me what airlines you're planning on flying and i can help you more.

     

    OH...THANKS!! I would be flying in American Airlines (land 10:55); I would be flying out Air Korean (at 12:35pm).

     

    In that case yes, you would have to transfer from T3 to T5 on your way out and T5 to T3 on your way back. I think that would be enough time for your transfer. It will take about 15 minutes to get to T5 via the ATS train and then you will have to go through security. If you can get AA to check your bags through to Korean you won't have to claim them first (on your way out of the US).

     

    Thanks so much!!

     

  • Orlando to IAD to Brazil

    My flight will arrive at Washington (IAD) at 9:07pm from Orlando (MCO). My flight to Brazil is at 10:05pm. Is there enough time? I'm flying UNITED in both flights.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time, all you will have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will both be on the C/D concourse.

     

  • YVR - SFO - IAH

    I am planning to travel to Houston and there is a connecting flight from Vancouver, BC to San Franciso, CA with a 45 min layover between United flights. Is that enough time? Will the flight from Vancouver arrive in the same terminal as the connecting flight leaving SFO?

     

    Almost all United flights at SFO now use Terminal 3, so they will probably be the same terminal and 45 minutes is enough time to make that connection. You will pre-clear US Immigration in Vancouver.

    I am arriving by Air France at3:45 pm, assuming at Terminal 5. I need to catch a United flight at terminal 2 departing at 5:05 pm. I only have carry on baggage. I don't know what type of security I will need to lclear coming from France. Will I have enough time to make the connection to my 5:05 pm departure in Terminal 2?

     

    No, that is not enough time. You need at least 90 minutes to safely make an international->domestic connection at ORD. Additionally, since Air France and United are not in the same alliance, United will be less inclined to help you if you miss your connection due to the Air France flight being late.

     

    I sort of thought it would not be enough time. but thanks for the info about the time allowed to clear security on the return flight...I have decided to drive to Chicago! Big help, thank you.......

     

  • ORD connection LHR/ORD/SDF
    Mar 31, 2014

    Flying Virgin Atlantic LHR to ORD , flight 39 , arrival ORD at 13:35. Connecting to American Airlines AA5330 departing at 16:10. Is this enough time to connect? Will I be able to check bags all the way through at London?

     

    Were your tickets bought on one reservation or separate? If they were bought together, Virgin Atlantic and American do have an interline agreement so they should be able to check your bags through to Louisville. However, you will still have to claim your bags after you go through immigration, then go through customs, then re-check them with American. if they cannot be tagged through to SDF, you will have to bring them with you on the ATS train to Terminal 3 and check them there.

     

    Also, you should have enough time in either case.

     

  • 1 hour 22 minutes sufficient to catch connecting flight? PVR-MSP-PDX
    Mar 31, 2014

    Little bit about me: I've never flown internationally before. I can walk, but not briskly. I have checked luggage. I have my US passport. Return flight is from PVR to PDX via MSP. Arrive in MSP from PVR at 6:33 pm on Delta. Then have 1hour 22 minutes (assuming on-time) to catch delta flight to PDX. Is this possible?

     

    That should be enough time if your inbound flight is on-time. The Delta terminal at MSP is not terribly large and immigration should not be crowded.

     

  • Transfer time international arrival to domestic Victoria ?

    Arriving from Switzerland at 6.50 pm, going through immigration, claiming baggage and then flying to Victoria at 8.oo pm. Will we have enough time or should we fly at 9 pm ? Thanks for experienced advice

     

    You could probably make the 8 PM but I would book the 9 PM just to be safe.

    We are flying from London to Miami (BA) in April and have 4 hours to get on to an AA flight to Guatemala - hand luggage only. Should be OK? But coming back in from Belize to Miami we only have 2 hours to get our BA flight back to London (hand luggage). Will we make it? Coming back from

     

    On the way there you will have plenty of time. The way back will be a little trickier but still should be enough time as long as your first flight is on-time.

     

    Thank you!
