  • Is it enought time?
    Apr 28, 2015
    Hi! I am international student with F1 visa and will lend to USA (not the first time) on 11 of August from Ukraine to JFK. If I lend at 2:20pm and I want to buy domestic tickets now to SLC at 5:30pm, is it going to be enough to have 3h10min to lick up my baggage, go through international security, etc? I don't know terminal yet...


    That is probably enough time. Although if you provide more specifics I can help you more.


    Sorry, now I figured out how to find some info about those flights. The flight I would like to buy back to SLC, Utah is DL 458, JFK-SLC, depart at 5:30pm, Airbus A320. I am buying right now the flight from Ukraine, Kyiv to JFK, Flight 231. Will arrive at 2:20 pm, Terminal 7. I will have my baggage to claim, then to go through the security, international security, etc... I will show my new VISA. The question is, will it be enough to have 3h10 minutes to do all those procedures? I do not look suspicious, just a F1 student.


    Yes, that should probably be enough time. Since you are buying two separate tickets you will have to transfer your bags yourself from Terminal 7 to Terminal 2 or 4 where your Delta flight will depart. DL 458 should depart from Terminal 4.


    Thank you so much! The next option was to get tickets to SLC with 5+ hours gap in JFK and it's just a lot... So I was hesitating.. I hope my international flight will not be delayed. Thank you again!


  • Traveling Between Terminals B and C
    Apr 27, 2015
    I will be traveling from Denver to Baltimore via Southwest, and the Southwest flights leave from terminal C. There's a restaurant in terminal B that I wanted to visit with a friend who is taking a United flight on that same day. Is it possible to travel through security to terminal C and then travel to terminal B and then back to terminal C without going through security more than once? Is this via the underground trains? Thanks!


    B and C in Denver aren't separate terminals, they're just different concourses. DEN only has a single security checkpoint serving all concourses before you get on the underground train. Yes, you can freely travel between B and C inside security on the Underground Train.

    i'm traveling from Raleigh NC to mexico and i like to know how hard or difficult be to get to terminal b from terminal c. i only have 50 minutes to do this


    The TerminaLink train connects B and C inside security. it shouldn't take more than 15 minutes.


  • Do you go through security again when going from terminal A to F?
    Apr 27, 2015
    We have 45 minutes in between our connecting flight. The flight arrives at Terminal A but departs at Terminal F. I know we will need to take a shuttle, but will we also have to go through security again? If so, will that be enough time?


    No, you will not have to go through security again. it should be barely enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • detroit - ohare - tokyo connection
    Apr 27, 2015
    i have a 40 minute layover between my united flight from detroit to my united flight to tokyo. all is in terminal one. will this be enough time? will there be a security check at ohare?


    There is no security check at O'Hare, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Your flight from Detroit may actually arrive in Terminal 2 but it is connected to Terminal 1 inside security.

    Hi, I am traveling from LAX-SEA-AMS-GOT with Delta Airlines on the 23 june. It is only 37 minutes between flights landing in Seattle and the flight to Amsterdam. Is it enough time? Do I need to claim my luggage?


    You do not have to claim your luggage, all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate and all gates in Seattle are connected inside security. However it obviously leaves very little time to spare if your flight from LAX is delayed at all.


  • Connection

    We arrive in Rome on American Airlines at 9:20a.m.with checked bags. We will need to go through customs. Can we make an 11:45am Ryan air connection to Palermo?


    I would think it would be possible, but doesn't leave much time to spare if your AA flight is delayed.


  • Domestic and International
    Apr 27, 2015
    Hi, Im flying to Atl from MTL, it shows my flight arrives at Concourse D Im meeting with my wife who's arriving from SDQ at Terminal E. Where can we meet to take ground transportation together?


    Where is MTL? Will either of you have checked bags? MTL is the code for Maitland, Australia. I doubt you're coming from there. Are you both on Delta?


    No checked bags, MTL is from Montreal Canada and SDQ Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. We are both on Delta.


    Then you can meet her in the International Terminal at the exit of customs. Since you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal, you will not have to go through Immigration and Customs in Atlanta.


  • T8 to T4
    Apr 27, 2015
    if I arrive at T8 and am connecting to a flight in T4, do I have to go through security again?


    Yes, you do, those terminals are only connected by the AirTrain which runs outside security.


    Apr 27, 2015
    I'm flying from Mexico (SJD) to Toronto (YYZ) with an 1hr 15min layover in Houston (IAH). Is this enough time? Both flights are with United Airlines - will the gates be in the same terminal?


    That is 15 minutes shorter than the recommended time as you will have to go through US Immigration and Customs and Security and possibly change terminals (Toronto flights can leave from B, C, or E). You will arrive in E. It's possible, but it leaves no time to spare if there are any delays.


  • Connection time

    Hi, we're flying from San Fran to Orlando with a 45 minute connection in Atlanta and looks like we will have to go from gate A to gate F (jusding by past flights). Is this enough time? I have heard yo have to go through security?


    No, you do not have to go through security. All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. The Orlando flight should usually NOT leave from F as that is primarily an International concourse. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

  • Transfer from MXP through FRA to IAD
    Apr 27, 2015
    I'm flying from MXP through FRA on LH 247 June 21 with only an hour and five minutes to transfer to United flight UA988 to IAD. Will I have enough time? Do I have to go through customs or security? Will my bags automatically transfer? Thanks for your help.


    Yes, that should be enough time. You just have to go through Schengen exit passport control. Your bags will be automatically transferred.


  • 56 minutes layover- enough time?
    Apr 27, 2015
    My US Air flight arrives in Philly at 12:49 pm at terminal F and my next flight leaves at 1:45 pm from terminal C. will I have enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. There is a shuttle bus connecting F and the other terminals inside security.


  • Transfer from terminal D to terminal B
    Apr 26, 2015
    Flying into terminal D and my connecting flight is terminal B just 40 minutes later. How long will it take me to connect and what's the quickest way? Thanks!


    Most arrivals in Terminal D are International - where are you coming from? If your arrival into Terminal D is domestic or precleared that is barely enough time. The SkyLink train is the fastest way. If your flight into Terminal D is international non-precleared then there is no way you can make that connection.
