  • Delta Connection Layover 58 minutes
    Sep 18, 2014
    2
    My flight arrives at 7:41 and all it says is Domestic South Terminal ... but my connecting flight, also Delta, departs at 8:39 from Gate E34. By looking at the map, that appears to be at the complete opposite end of the airport. Assuming I deboard quickly, and don't have to go through any checks or customs (domestic flight), is that going to be do-able?

     

    Actually, it looks like the plane comes in from an international flight at Gate E34, but it departs on my domestic flight from Domestic South. So I might be okay! Is it normal for flights to land at one gate, drop passengers, then move to another gate for a different departure?

     

    No flights actually "come into" the domestic terminal South. All flights use the various midfield concourses. If your first flight is domestic, all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All concourses are connected to each other by the plane train. You don't actually have to go to the Domestic terminal.

     

  • Calgary to Fort Myers connection 45 min in Houston, is that enough tim

    Calgary flight to Fort Myers connects in Houston. Only 45 min between flights. Is that enough time to get from Terminal A to C?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Calgary. The TerminaLink train connects all Terminals inside security.

    I am flying Delta 240 into Rome FCO on Sept 21. The flight is supposed to arrive at 7:30am in Terminal 3. I have a connecting Atalia flight in Terminal 3. Is it difficult to go between terminals. Is there a shuttle

     

    You can walk from your arrival in Terminal 3 to Any Alitalia gate (T1 for Schengen, T3 for non-schengen).

    Do I need to claim baggage in sea and recheck?

     

    I'm flying from victoria bc on dl9148 to sea, then on dl589 to pvg.

     

    Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check your bags, then go through security as YYJ does not have pre-clearance.

     

  • ENOUGH TIME FOR CONNECTION?

    I travel from YUL on united 5092 and connect to united 976 on Nov 17 and has a 70 min connection so i if the gate close 30 min before take off i have 40 min will it be long enough time for the connection

     

    the connection is to dubai

     

    The gate does not close 30 mins before departure, that's just to scare you into not taking your time. 70 minutes should be plenty of time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal so all you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You may arrive on concourse A. You will depart from Concourse C or D. A is connected to C/D by the Aerotrain and mobile lounge inside security.

     

  • CONECTING FLIGHTS

    I AM ARRIVING FROM CANCUN MÉXICO TO DALLAS AT 5.15 PM WITH SUN COUNTRY AIRLINES, AND I HAVE A CONNECTING FLIGHT TO MINNEAPOLIS AT 6:45, BUT I HAVE TO GO THRU IMMIGRATION..IS IT ENOUGH TIME? CAN YOU TELL ME HOW TO GET TO IMMIGRATION AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, MY TICKET DOES NOT SAY AT WICH TERMINAL IM ARRIVING, AND FROM WHICH ONE IM LEAVING

     

    Both of your flights will be in Terminal D. It will be very easy to find immigration as you will be forced to go there. You should have plenty of time. Also the same aircraft will by flying your Cancun-DFW and DFW-MSP flights, so if it is late arriving it will be late departing as well.

    San Antonio to Houston - 35 minute connection for a Houston - NY (LGA) flight - is that possible?

     

    Yes, it is possible if the first flight is on-time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Connection time through Houston 1 Hr 2 Min. Do "In Transit" passengers have to clear Customs and Immigration at IAH or is this done in Toronto? Do I have to go through Security at Houston? (Shoes, belts off etc.) Is 1 Hr 2 Min enough time? Traveling on United. Which Terminals will be involved? Thanks.

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will arrive in Terminal B or C and depart from Terminal B or E. All Terminals are connected inside security by the TerminaLink train. 1 hr 2 minutes should be enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

    Thanks ZAP

     

  • SYD-SFO-NEWARK Concerned!

    Hi, we are flying to Newark from Sydney with a 1.45min layover at SFO and I'm unsure of the process. Do we need to go through customs, claim our baggage and then recheck again on the flight to Newark? Both flights are with United Airlines and I'm concerned that 1.45min may not be enough time if we need to claim and recheck our baggage... thanks in advance

     

    In SFO you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check your bags at the re-check desk with United. Then you will go through security and to your departure gate. 1:45 is enough time if your first flight is on-time and if you are delayed United has many flights from SFO to Newark.

     

    Thank you :)

     

  • United Express (8) to US Airways Express (4) in 1 hr?
    Sep 18, 2014

    We are arriving at LAX on United Express to terminal 8 (i think) at 1:05pm and need to be on US Airways Express out of terminal 4 (I think) at 2:05. Is 1 hr enough time if we only have carry-ons?

     

    It's maybe possible but it's really risky - you'll have to wait for your gate-checked bags, then it's about a 15 minute walk to T4 then you have to go through security, then you have to take the shuttle to the remote "Eagle" terminal.

     

    Eek! Gate checked bags? Does the United Express not allow carry-ons?!

     

    Most of the aircraft United Express flies into LAX do not have large enough overhead bins for most roll-aboards. Unless your bag fits under the seat in front of you, you often have to gate-check on those flights.

     

  • FCO VCE Transit

    Hello, I will take the AZ785 from Tokyo NRT to FCO, and later take the AZ1473 to VCE with about 2 hours 20 minutes (+- 30 minutes depends on the situations) for transition, is the time enough ? Thanks !

     

    From T3 to T1, baggage would be directly sent to VCE I think.

    Arriving from Toronto Canada at term ORD . Our flight to Amsterdam departs 3 hours later at term 1, do we need to go through security and customs again? And how long will it take

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • Delta Flight from SFO through LAX to Puerto Vallart
    Sep 16, 2014

    Question: We are travelling Delta from SFO with a layover in LAX then onto Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. Where do we go through customs? Do we need to grab our luggage in LAX, or does it go all the way through to Mexico for us?

     

    On your way to Mexico you will go through Mexican Immigration and Customs when you get to Mexico. You do not go through US Customs when leaving the US. You will not have to do anything with your baggage in LAX. On your way back, you will clear US Immigration and Customs in LAX. That is when you will have to claim your luggage to go through Customs then re-check it.

     

  • Connecting from Boston in Newark to Seattle

    Hi, I have a connecting flight from United in Boston to Seattle, WA through Newmark. The flight arrives at 8:30 and then the connection flight leaves at 9:20. Is this enough time? Where do I go to get the connection?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. Both flights will be in Terminal C. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Thank you!

     

    One more question! What level of terminal C will I arrive on and which level will I have to go for my next gate? How long do you think it would take someone who walks briskly to get there?

     

    Both flights will be on the same level. Your walk will take somewhere between 1 and 15 minutes, depending on the exact gates your flights are assigned.
