  • Connecting flights with United

    Planning to fly United from Rapid City SD to Jackson Hole WY on UA3867 and have 51 minutes to connect with UA5497. Do we have to re-check bags and go through security. Is 50 min enough time to make this transfer? Thanks.

     

    No you don't have to do anything with your bags or go through security. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate which will be near each other in the same concourse.

    Hi, I am travelling from London (UA 96) via IAH to Albuquerque (UA 4090). The time between the flights is 1hr 22 minutes. Is this sufficient if I have only carry-on luggage with me and don't have to check in again?

     

    Yes that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time

    Coming from SYR and arriving in LGA at 7:15, would it be possible to make the connection at 8:10, both flights on Delta?

     

    Yes that is plenty of time.

     

  • Connecting T4 with T8 - 105 min layover

    Hi ZAP, I am arriving on Jan 5th 2015 to JFK T4 from Madrid with Air Europa at 8:05 PM and I am connecting with American Airlines from T8 to Washington DCat 9:47pm. I bought the tickets separatedly so I would have to do a new check in and I have one big baggage with me. Would this be enough time to go through customs, change terminal and check in again to make the connection? Thanks for your help ZAP!

     

    It's possible but difficult . You'll have to be at T8 45 minutes before departure

    I'm flying from Glasgow to Amsterdam then on to Hamburg, however is 40 minutes enough time to get through any checks then to my next flight? I'll be taking a carry on bag only and any info about the checks you go through between connecting flights would be great. Thanks

     

    Just to add, both flights will be with klm and I wanted to check if this was long enough before booking

     

    That should be enough time. You will go through schengen passport control when you enter the schengen pier of the terminal.

     

    Thank you for that!

    I arrive in Atl at 9:05 to connect to a delta flight to Austin texas at 9:50 will I make it?

     

    For added detail I arrive in Atl on flight #1618 catching flight # 1118 to austin both Delta

     

    Yes that is enough time but doesn't leave much time to spare in case of delays. The plane train connects all concourses inside security.

    Flying from LGA to BER, layover in ORD (AA to Air Berlin). Is 1.5 hour enough to make the connection? Do I recheck baggage in ORD? Thanks!

     

    If you bought your tickets together you don't have to do anything with your bags. Just walk between your gates. You have plenty of time.

    My wife and I will be traveling from Huntsville, AL to Montego Bay, Jamaica on Delta Airlines with a connection in Atlanta. This is our first time to fly internationally. Do we have to re-check our checked bag once we get to Atlanta or will it be checked all the way through to Montego Bay from Huntsville?

     

    On your way to Jamaica you don't have to do anything with your bags, just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. On your way back you will have to claim them to go through customs then re-check them at the transfer desk.

     

    Thanks!

    Hi, I will be landing at ATL from BRU flight DL 2334 on januari 15 and connect to Fort Lauderdale flight DL 476 both Delta. Do I need to re-incheck my baggage as well? Thanks.

     

    Yes. You will go through US immigration, claim your bags, go through customs then re-check your bags at the transfer desk then go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse .

     

    Thanks for your answer. Could you also tell me what a concourse is or what the difference it is whit a terminal and how many stops I need to calculate for getting of the Plane train to catch my flight to Fort Lauderdale on DL 476? Thanks again.

     

    You will arrive in E or F and likely depart from A, B, or C. Plane train shouldn't take more than 10 minutes.

     

  • 39 Mins from New Orleans to London Heathrow

    Going back home, this seems tight but UA say this is a 'legal connection' and it will be a case of walking from one gate to another and our bags will be transferred automatically. However, I thought the gate for an international flight closes 30 mins prior to take off? That leaves me 9 mins to get off plane and tothe correct gate. Flight numbers are UA1247 and then UA4 to London. Should I reschedule?

     

    International flights close 10 minutes prior to departure, not 30. It is a legal connection, but obviously leaves little to no time to spare. If you are not already on the last flight to London I would leave it because if you miss it you can just be rebooked.

     

    Thanks again. It will be for the last flight home that day. There is an earlier flight from nola but will cost 130gbp per ticket to change

    I have a connecting flight with only 70 mins to change. Flight number is UA123 connecting with UA3797 (Mesa Airlines/United Express). I have ESTA. How long will immigration, customs, bag collect and hand back etc take. Am I cutting this very fine? Scheduled arrival time at IAD is 11.20.

     

    70 minutes is possible, but it is well below the published minimum connection time of 90 minutes

     

    Thanks. Suppose it depends on luck. I see that the plane often lands early. Apart from today when it was late. Is this one a 'legal connection'

    I will be arriving into ORD T5 from NRT at 2:30PM and departing from ORD T1 to CLT 4:15PM. Is 1 hour and 45 minutes enough time to make it to my connecting flight? I am travelling during the holiday season and am anxious about missing my flight.My tickets are all booked through United. Thank you

     

    Edit: Travelling on December 22

     

    Just checked my flight has been changed so I now have 1 hour 31 minutes of connecting time

     

    Yes that is enough time but doesn't leave much to spare.

    Hi, I will take a flight from denver and arrive at O'hare at around 11:22 on Dec.6th. Then I will take another flight at 14:25 to China. The two tickets are booked separately.... I am afraid the snow will delay the flight.. Will the time be sufficient? Thanks!

     

    Snow on December 6 is unlikely. You should have plenty of time.

     

    Thank you very much for your response. I guess I need to pick up baggage, go through the security check ,then transfer to another terminal. In this case, would 3 hours be enough? Thanks~
