  • Connecting flight

    My daughter is traveling from chicago to Okinawah on United and changes planes in tokyo. Will she have to claim her baggage and recheck it in or will it be transferred to her connecting flight? Also, does she have to go through customs at this point or just to her connection gate?

     

    In Tokyo she will go through Japanese passport control, claim her luggage to go through customs, and re-check it. There will be people to assist there.

     

  • connecting flight after COPA arrival from Panama City ?

    Our flight is scheduled to arrive @ 4:48 PM from Panama City (COPA) and the connecting flight is now departing @ 7:37 PM (was originally 8:46 PM but United moved the flight up by an hour +). Does this allow enough time to clear customs and get to departure gate?

     

    That should still be plenty of time.

    We will be arriving in an ATL international terminal (most likely T) from MBJ at 1900. Then we'll need to get thru customs and connect for a domestic flight in a domestic terminal. Is 1 hour and 40 minutes enough time for that?

     

    Actually the T gates are not used for International Arrivals. You will arrive in E or F. You don't actually have to change terminals. You just have to take the Plane Train to your departure concourse after going through US Immigration, claiming your bags, going through US Customs, re-checking your bags, and go through through security. You should barely have enough time.

    i am arriving at EWR on a flight from Zurich in Terminal B at 1.20 pm and then i have a connecting flight on United to Binghamton at 2.50 pm from terminal C......do u think i will be able to make it on time and catch the next flight under 90 min after undergoing the customs and security processes.

     

    That is the bare minimum allowed for that type of connection. It's possible, but it depends on your flight from Zurich being on-time and there being no delays at immigration or security.

     

  • JFK Terminal international to domestic connections

    Hi, I will be arriving to JFK at 20:10 via Cathay Pacific international flight (T7) and planning to book another domestic departure 22:50 through JetBlue (T5). Read that it requires customs clear. So no check in baggage and also about to purchase jetblue even more speed to reduce TSA security check time. Is it enough time for connection? Thank you.

     

    Yes, without checked baggage I think this would certainly be possible. Check in online for your JetBlue flight before leaving Hong Kong to save more time.

     

  • 45 min connection time

    Looking at booking BHX-FRA-VRN flight with lufthansa and it says a 45 min connection at FRA. I imagine this is doable as its sold as one ticket, but it seems very tight. Is this sufficient time?

     

    It is very tight. You will have to go through Schengen Passport control and there's a good chance both flights will uses buses to connect them to the terminal.

    United have changed our flight times leaving us 90 minutes to transfer between planes.Our flight from san francisco arrives at newark at18.00.and we need to connect to manchester uk departing at 19.30.do we have enough time?

     

    Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal C.

     

    thanks so much for the reassurance

     

  • LHR -ORD- MSY Transfer time ORD T 5 to T 1

    We arrive T5 from London (BA) at 145pm on 3 Jun and dept T1 for New Orleans at 357pm (United). Is 2 hour connection time sufficient at this time of day to clear immigration/security and transfer?

     

    That's barely possible. Since you are flying two non-alliance partners is it correct that you purchased two separate tickets? If so that means you will have to take your bags with you on the ATS Train to check them with United in T1.

    Hi there. I'm going to be traveling through Houston in December with my two children. We arrive on NZ28 at 1:15pm in Terminal D, and then connect to UA2917 in Terminal A. I'm slightly concerned about the connection, as I've heard customs can have long wait times in Houston. (Plus, Air NZ will be very new to flying through Houston, so I can only hope that they'll be prepared for the extra influx of travelers.) We're US citizens, but my kids are both under 12. (I'm not sure if there's an age limit on the e-passport readers?) I was hoping that someone could tell us the best way of getting from terminal D to A, whether we'll need to go through security, and a rough guess at how much time it will take? Thanks for your help!! :-)

     

    Yes, after you go through US Immigration and customs, everyone on a connection must go through security. I cannot flight a flight UA2917 - where are you flying to? There is no age limit to use the passport kiosks.

     

    Thanks for your help. We're flying to St. Louis on a United Express flight.

    Hi I am looking at Virgin flights from Orlando 31.08.15 connecting through Atlanta then onto Virgin/Delta flight to London Heathrow, my travel agent has offered a flight with only 1hr 14min connection time. Is this doable and what will the process be do we go through immigration or just direct to our connecting flight to london? thanks in advance

     

    All you will have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. the Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. There is no US Immigration when leaving the US. That is enough time.

     

  • Austin Atlanta Daytona connection time

    Hi, I had to purchase a 1 way ticket to Atlanta, then a 1 way ticket from Atlanta to Daytona 1 hour later due to work commitment. Do I need to collect my bags from first flight and recheck or will Delta recheck for me. Both flights are Delta flights.

     

    If you show your second confirmation to the agent in Austin they should be able to check your bag to through to Daytona. You may even be able to call Delta and have them "Join your PNRs" so that both of your tickets are on the same reservation.

    Flying from OGG to LAX, landing in Terminal 7 at 7:57pm with Air Canada (Operated by United Airlines). Connection flight to Toronto leaves Terminal 2 at 10:10pm with Air Canada. Is this enough time? Also will we have to collect our bags at LAX, or when we land in Toronto? we have another connecting flight to Winnipeg with a 2hr layover in Toronto.

     

    Your baggage will be transferred for you. All you have to do is walk or take the shuttle from T7 to T2 and go through security. You have plenty of time.

     

    thank you for your response! this is only my 3rd time flying, and my first by myself, especially with so many connecting flights. i feel a lot less nervous now.

    I'm arriving in Terminal S and Departing 2 hours later in Terminal S...sounds simple. But the maps look confusing. Are departures and arrivals in Terminal S in the same area, or do I have to go up a level? Thank you!

     

    No flights actually arrive or depart from "Terminal S" in Atlanta. They arrive in one of the domestic concourses - T, A, B, C, or D. If your flights are in different concourses, all you have to do is take the Plane Train, which runs inside security, between concourses.

     

    Thank you very much!!! Huge airport!!

     

  • Southwest to Allegiant

    Hi! I'm scheduled to land in LAX at 10:15AM with Southwest. My departing flight to Honolulu is at 11:10AM with Allegiant. I understand I will have to go from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3. I will have a carry-on bag only. Will 50 minutes be enough time pending the Southwest flight is on time from Denver. I'm not sure how busy LAX gets over the Memorial Day weekend, but the flights are booked for Saturday, May 23. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

     

    If you check-in online for your allegiant flight and your Southwest flight is on-time, and you run, you have a chance of making it. I would have not booked this.

    Hello I am flying to Amsterdam from tel aviv through FCO. My flights are from tel aviv to FCO with alitalia, and than from FCO to AMS with KLM. Would one hour layout between the flight be enough, or should I be afraid to miss my flight to amsterdam. Thank you

     

    Assuming you are an EU citizen, that should barely be enough time.
