  • Concerned about making my connection
    Feb 23, 2015

    My father's flight is HKG-->SEA, with 45 mins to connect for SEA--> YVR final destination. It's purchased under one ticket transaction through Delta. I want to know: 1) Will 45 mins be enough to go through US customer, re-claim baggage and go through security then departure gate. 2) Are there forms my father will have to fill out of just a brief encounter with the immigration officer at the custom gates? He doesn't speak English very well so I'm just concerned about the connection time and want to ask if there's anything I can prepare for him to make the transfer smoother. Thanks!

     

    No, 45 minutes is not enough. He needs at least 90 minutes.

    We fly out of Fresno on United with 1 hour 45 minutes to get to our international flight on Air New Zealand. Our tickets are booked together. Our experience with flights from Fresno is we will land away from the main terminal and take a bus in. Then we will need to get to the departing terminal. How long would this take under normal/good circumstances? Will we need to go through security?

     

    United no longer uses the buses at SFO. You will now arrive in Terminal 3 and can walk directly to your departure gate in the G concourse of the International Terminal, no security required.

     

    Good news. Thanks for your help.

    i fly vancouver-minneapolis-boston with delta. do i have to pick up luggage and clear customs in Minneapolis if both flights are Delta? my connecting time is 55 minutes and i am wondering if that is enough time.

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in MSP is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

    If I fly in From London on BA, then out again to Puerto Vallarta on AA, do I need to clear US Customs & Immigration? Thanks.

     

    Yes, you will need to go through US Immigration and Customs and security but you should not have to claim your bags as you are on an International to International connection, but please confirm with the agents in London and DFW.

     

  • Is TSA rescreening needed when passing thru CLT on way back from DUB

    I will be making a connection in CLT coming from DUB Dublin IE. I will go through passport control in DUB. When I get to CLT I assume I will go through customs then. Will I have to exit and reenter through TSA to get to my connection to DFW? Thanks

     

    No, you will also clear US Customs in DUB. All you have to do in CLT is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • Timing between connections?

    I'm flying into Seattle from Vancouver, B.C. on an ticket purchased by aeorplan and need to connect to another separate purchased flight for Denver within 45 minutes. Am I forced to go to the counter to check in to the second flight or can I just go to the gate? I'm concerned about timing between flights.

     

    If you do not have checked baggage and you check-in online for your flight to Denver, you can go straight to your departure gate. However, there's very little time to spare in case there are any delays.

     

  • London to Memphis : with 70mins layover in Dallas

    Hi, I'm flying from London Heathrow to Memphis with a 70mins layover in Dallas. Will this be enough time to clear immigration at DFW to catch the flight to Memphis? Thanks

     

    No, that is not enough time. The minimum time for such a connection is 90 minutes and the recommended time is 2 hours. Contact your travel agent or airline to book an earlier flight to Dallas or later flight to Memphis.

     

  • GSP-ORD-NRT-BKK 32 mins via ORD, enough?

    I just got my flight updated involuntarily by United. So now I have only 32 minutes layover/transfer via ORD. Is this enough time to get from the domestic gate to the international terminal & gate?

     

    You do not have to exit terminals. You will arrive in Terminal 1 or 2 and depart from Terminal 1. They are connected inside security by a walkway. You barely have enough time if your flight from GSP is on-time. However, since this is an involuntary schedule change, you could call United to ask for a different itinerary (maybe one connecting over Washington-Dulles).

     

    Thanks for your advice; I already called United and changed my flight!!

    Hi! I am traveling from San Francisco to Ottawa. I have a 40 min connection in ORD. In ORD, I arrive in terminal 1 and leave from terminal 2 for YOW. I am International Do I have time to make it? How does the transportation goes from one terminal to another? Do I have to do security check again? Do I have enough time for it?

     

    You can just walk from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2. You do not have to go through security. You will barely have enough time if your flight from SFO is on-time.

    Flying into Houston Int. Airport from Toronto, Canada and have checked baggage from Toronto. Do I have to go through customs, pick up checked baggage and then get another boarding pass for Belize and go through customs again...also do you know what terminal I arrive in from Toronto, Canada and what gate I have to fly out of to get to Belize from Houston...

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you are flying Air Canada from Toronto you will arrive in Terminal A and if you are flying United you will arrive in B or C. You will depart to Belize from Terminal E. The TerminaLink train connects All Terminals inside security and as long as your tickets were purchased together your bags will be checked through to Belize in Ottawa and you should be issued all your boarding passes there. On the return trip, in Houston, that is when you will go through US Immigration and customs and go through security. You should not have to claim your bags because you are on an International to International connection but confirm that with the United agents in Belize and Houston.

    I am arriving from Miami on a Delta flight arriving at 7:50pm and have a BA flight from Atlanta to London leaving at 21:55. is this enough time to make the connection, and what is the distance between terminals?

     

    Did you buy two separate tickets or your tickets together? Will you have checked baggage? I can't answer this question unless I know that.

    We are arriving 11/6 -2015 from Amsterdam with KL6075 and we are landing at terminal I . We have 2 h to get plain KL5356 to Orlando from terminal S. Please give us information to get there as fast as possible

     

    Note that both flights are operated by Delta. You will arrive in concourse E/F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse. You should have enough time.

     

    Thanks :-) Pleas can you also tell us if it's a gate for faster transfer With child , 8 years ?

     

    No, you don't get to cut the line because you have a child with you.

    How much time and what transport do I use to get from domestic delta flight 400 arriving JFK 2:44PM to the American terminal for an international American flight 106 leaving at 6:35PM. Should I just take a carry on or do I have time to check bags.

     

    You have time for checked bags. You get between Terminals via the AirTrain. You will arrive at Terminal 4 and depart from Terminal 8.

    Hello, I'm traveling from Orlando Fl to Victoria BC. I will stop in San Francisco for 1 hour and 30min. Will this be enough time to go custom? Also, do I have to pick up my luggage and take it somewhere else?

     

    You will not go through US Customs on your way to Victoria. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs when you get to Victoria. All you have to do in SFO is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
