  • T5 to T4 connection
    Sep 8, 2014

    Hi, My friend and I are booked to fly from Orlando to New York on Jetblue and Onwards to Abu Dhabi and Mumbai on Etihad. Our JetBlue flight arrives in T5 and our Etihad flight departs from T4. We will be flying in December, and have a connecting time of 1h44 minutes in JFK. Do you think we can make it?

     

    By the way, forgot to add that we will be receiving our onwards boarding pass at Orlando itself, and our bags will be checked in all the way through to Mumbai

    I have 50 mins connection time between flights from FLL and SEA will I make it and will my checked bags? any idea which terminals United flights I think?

     

    Both flights will likely be in Terminal C. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

  • B to delta connection

    Hi there, I am arriving in terminal B on fiji airways at 11:25am (28th Dec) and looking to get a delta flight from LAX - DCA at 1:05pm - travelling on AUS passport and separate tickets so will need to clear customs and recheck bags - is 1.5hrs too risky? Am pretty well versed in rushing at airports but haven't been to LAX in a while.

     

    Delta does not fly LAX-DCA. However their codeshare partner Alaska Airlines does, so that's probably the flight you're looking at. That flight would depart from Terminal 6. 1.5 hours is doable but awfully risky because you'll have to get yourself and your bags to T6 40 minutes before your flight. It takes 10-15 minutes to walk between the TBIT and T6. so that means you would have to be out of customs by 12:10. It's doable, but difficult and leaves little room for error. Maybe you should consider flying to IAD instead.

     

  • PHL-SFO-SYD (United)

    Hi, I need to purchase a ticket to fly from Philly to Sydney, Australia. One of my options is through SFO with 1hour layover. Otherwise, I have to transfer twice with about 90- 120 min layovers each. First, I don't need to go through a security checkpoint for this transfer (SFO), right? If so, I know 1h is not enough. Any input would be appreciated. But still, I usually ask for 2 hour layover for an international and this seems little too short.

     

    If both flights are on United you will not have to go through security in SFO. 1 hour should be enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    hello i have a flight from Paris to New York and a connection to new Orléans . I Will arrive in T1 and i have to go to T2. I have 2 hours and i would like to Know if I have to go through customs or not (i have to go outside from t1 and go through customs or is it possible to stay inside terminal Hub ???? (T1 to T2) many thanks for your reply

     

    You will arrive in T1, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then you have to take the AirTrain from T1 to T2 and go through security and to your departure gate. You must go through US Customs and Immigration at your first landing point within the US.

  • T8 to T4 possible in 2 hours?
    Sep 8, 2014

    I am being issued a ticket for a Friday morning with 2-hour time between flights. I will arrive in T8 on American and depart from T4 on Etihad. It is a codeshare flight, so I should have boarding passes in hand. Need to mention that I will be traveling with 2 infants and may need to wait at the gate to collect my strollers that I will be gate-checking. Can somebody with knowledge confirm if 2 hours is a sufficient transit time on a Friday morning?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time, especially if your American flight is Domestic.

     

    ZAP - Thanks for the assurance. Yes, the American flight is domestic. I will also try to remember and post my experience later so it helps others.

     

  • 41 Minute Connection

    I'm flying in from LIT Little Rock on United Express and flying back out on United Express to YQB Quebec City. I have a 41 minute connection time.....is that enough? Do most Canada flight depart from Terminal 1?

     

    Both flights will actually likely be in Terminal 2, but either could be in Terminal 1 as well. They are connected inside security by a walkway.

     

  • 30 mins enough time for connecting from terminal c to e?

    Flying United NY-Guadalajara arr Terminal C 8:29, departure Terminal E at 9:00am; enough time if first flight is not delayed?

     

    Actually your Guadalajara flight will depart from Terminal B. Yes, 30 minutes should be enough time.

  • Picking up Luggage and going to a connecting flight
    Sep 8, 2014

    I have a flight from ATL to JFK, and then I'm taking a international flight (booked as a separate itinerary). I probably won't be able to check my luggage for the whole trip. So do I have to go all the way out of the JFK airport in order to get to baggage claim, and then to re-check in by the international section? What's the quickest way to do this? (I have never been in JFK airport before, so I do not know the setup.)

     

    Please look at the map. I can help you more if you let me know what airlines you're flying.

     

  • Terminal 3 to 5 connection
    Sep 9, 2014

    I recently searched the internet prior to my connection in Rome (FCO) from terminal 3 to terminal 5. There is so much misleading information that I feel my summary might be helpful. My trip took me from Athens on Aegean Airlines to Rome and then continuing on US Airways to Philadelphia. I was arriving in Terminal 3 and told that all flights depart from US from Terminal 5. Some reports on here suggested 3-4 hours needed for the transfer. First of all, if you are have checked your bags ALL the way to your final destination at the origin (My bad was tagged to PHL in Athens), and you have a boarding pass for your connecting flight in Rome, you DO NOT NEED TO EVER ENTER TERMINAL 5. Terminal 5 is only for passengers who originate in Rome. When I landed in Terminal 3, I followed the signs for connecting flights which took me to G gates where my flight for US departs. Connecting from T3 to T5 took me about 20 minutes. I hope this is helpful.

     

    Yes, that is correctt. Thank you for your experience.

     

    I arrived from Moscow to FCO. I have a connection to Atlanta in the morning. I checked my bag all the way to ATL. So, I went through a security check, but not passport control. Did you have to go through passport control when you were transiting? I am sitting near the H gates now, waiting for the morning. I am a bit confused. I already have my boarding pass for the Delta flight.

  • Toronto - IAD - PDX Security time needed
    Sep 12, 2014

    I'm American and will be returning from Toronto to Portland, OR with a layover and expected security screening in IAD. Will 90 minutes be sufficient to get through security, re-check bags and board home bound flight? Thanks for your help.

     

    Why do you think you will have to re-check bags or go through security screening in IAD? Are you flying Porter from Toronto? Because Toronto YYZ has US Immigration preclearance. What airlines are you flying?
