  • ATL-EWR-FRA
    Apr 14, 2015
    1
    If all goes according to plan, I have 1 hour 11 minutes to get from my gate from ATL to the gate for FRA (Frankfurt, Germany). All flights are through United and I only have carry-on luggage, no checked bags. Will this be enough time? I would change ATL-EWR to an earlier flight if I could afford to change it, so I'll have to make do, but I am scared. This is my first time flying without family AND first time internationally.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. Both gates will probably be in Terminal C, but there's a chance you will arrive in Terminal A. If you do then United operates a shuttle bus inside security between A and C.

    I will be leaving Heathrow and traveling to Madison, WI (MSN.) All legs of the trip will be on United. I will land in Newark and have 1:27 layover in EWR before the next flight to Chicago (followed by another connecting flight to Madison.) Is this enough time for the layover in EWR?

     

    That is 3 minutes shorter the recommended International to Domestic connection time in Newark. However, if your flight from Heathrow is on-time I think you can make it.

    If I am flying into JFK from Atlanta on Delta to catch a connecting flight to Moscow, is 1 hour, 12 minutes enough time? Thanks!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You may arrive in Terminal 2 or 4 and will depart from Terminal 4. Delta runs a shuttle between T2 and T4 inside security.

     

    Much appreciated!

     

  • separate tickets, 3.5 hours in between?

    I'm considering flying from Winnipeg with Westjet to Toronto to catch a flight with Transaero that ultimately hits Kazakhstan via VKO. But booking with separate tickets due to some complicated circumstances. Will be flying with a baby, looks like Westjet and Transaero use the same terminal at Pearson; is 3.5 hours safe wiggle room or should I opt for the 5:30 AM departure time instead and leave myself 7 hours?

     

    3.5 hours should be plenty of time.

     

  • enough time to clear customs for connection

    I arrive into IAH at 7:05AM on Spirit from San Jose, CR and have a connection at 8:45 AM with United. Is 1hr and 40min enough time to clear customs and make my connection? I will have a checked bag with spirit but can carry it on as a carry on with United so will not have to check a bag after customs...

     

    Yes, that should barely be enough time, especially if you can check in online for your United flight before you leave Costa Rica.

    I have an upcoming trip to CUN from PDX connecting through SEA. I have about 45 mins from landing in SEA to departing SEA for CUN. Will this be enough time with checked bags?

     

    I should also say that all of our flights are on Alaska Airlines.

    I am booked for Alitalia leaving from JFK and landing in FCO 6:45AM, I have a connection to Athens on Alitalia leaving at 8:40AM. Is that sufficient time between flights? Do I have to go through immigration before boarding my connection flight?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. Yes, you will go through Schengen passport control on your route from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • sufficient time to connect airline

    I am thinking about purchasing ticket for connected from Mesa airline(RDU-IAD) to United(international line) at Dulles airport. But connecting time is just an hour (1 hr 3 min). Is it enough time to move inside of airport? Thanks!

     

    Yes, that is enough time. All United gates at IAD are connected inside security and both will be on the C/D concourse. All you have to do is walk from your arrival to your departure gate.

     

  • Frontier to United

    What will be the easiest way to get from Frontier terminals to the United check-in? We have 4 hours in between flights, so I don't believe time will be an issue. Just looking for the easiest way to get this accomplished.

     

    What airport are you talking about?

     

    test

     

    Frontier uses Terminal 3. The fastest way is to simply walk around, with the flow of traffic, past the International Terminal, then Terminals 4, 5, and 6 and finally to the United check-in in Terminal 7. There is also a shuttle bus on the lower level, but walking is usually faster.

    I'm taking flights AA741 and AA719 from Madrid to San Francisco, with layover of 2h 30 min at PHL. So I was wondering if I'd have to pick up my luggage when connexioning flights. Also if that's time enough. I'm spanish, and I booked those flights together. thank u

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, you will claim your baggage after going through US Immigration in Philadelphia, then go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.

    Hello, I am flying from St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada (YYT) and have 71 minutes between landing in Newark (EWR) and my connecting flight to Houston (IAH). Will this be enough time?

     

    No, that is not enough time. As St. John's does not have US Immigration and Customs preclearance, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, and go through security in Newark. The Minimum recommended time for such a connection is 90 minutes. Contact United or your travel agent for a later flight to Newark.

    I'm connecting flights at CDG from terminal 2E to terminal 2F. I arrive at 8:25 a.m. and depart on connecting flight at 10:10 a.m. How far apart are these terminals and will that give me ample time?

     

    They are right next to each other, connected to each other. You should have plenty of time.

    Travelling from Fiji, arrive at LAX at 1:15pm. Planning to book on a separete ticket to SFO via Southwest. will i have enough time to transfer to the 2:50pm flight at terminal 1. Also how far is it to walk from TBIT to terminal 1?

     

    No, you do not have enough time for the 2:50 flight. You will have to transfer your bags yourself and it's about a 15 minute walk to T1. Lines in T1 at LAX tend to be pretty bad too.

    Hi we arrive from Norway LAX (TB)?collect our bags and continue our trip with United to LAS could you guide us the way?? Checking bags tips etc Thanks in advance...

     

    You will arrive in the International Terminal, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then follow the signs for passengers ending their trip in LA (to the left). Exit the International Terminal and walk to your right, with the flow of traffic to Terminal 7 where you can re-check your bag with United. You will have to pay a checked bag fee. You will then go through security and to your departure gate which will be in Terminal 7 or 8 (they share a security checkpoint). You need at least 2.5 hours for this transfer.

     

    Thanks for your reply!

     

  • connection from LDN to ILM on Virgin and Delta.

    Hi there, I have a flight booked flying from London and getting into ATL with Virgin. I have a 2 1/2 layover to then catch my flight to Wilmington on Delta. Will this allow me enough time? Also are Delta and Virgin operated under the same group? As in, if i miss the connection because the flight is delayed, is it the air lines responsibility to get me a new flight or will i have to pay? Cheers.

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. Yes, if your flight from London is late you will be put on the next available flight to Wilmington.

     

    cheers!
