  • connection from YYJ-SEA-OAK
    Jul 16, 2014

    I fly in from Victoria(YYJ) to Seattle on alaska airlines and arrive at 8:51 am and next flight on american airlines departs at 10:05 to Oakland.Is this enough time?

     

    American Airlines does not fly from Seattle to Oakland, so both flights will actually be on Alaska. That isn't really enough time for your transfer, especially if you have checked bags as you will have to clear US Immigration and Customs in Seattle, then re-check bags, go through security, and to your departure gate in a different concourse. Without checked bags it's maybe possible.

     

  • Connections from YYJ to SEA to SAT, Alaska Air to United

    I am flying from Victoria BC arriving SeaTac 4:45 via Alaska Airlines, then have to get a United flight to Houston departing 5:49 … worried about connections. Will I be able to make it?

     

    That is not enough time as you have to clear US Customs and Immigration in Seattle, re-check your bag with United, go through security, and to your departure gate in another concourse. It's maybe possible if you don't check a bag.

     

  • Jet Blue to Delta Terminal (1hr 5 min)

    Arriving from Chicago at 8pm on JetBlue. Need to make a connection on Delta that departs at 9:05 out of Terminal 2 (perhaps Terminal 4). Will I make it?

     

    It's possible if you don't have checked bags, your Jetblue flight is on-time, and you check in for your Delta flight online before you leave Chicago. If any one of those things is not true, you have no chance.

     

  • Only 40 min to transfer from T3 to T5

    I will arrive at ORD from Fort Lauderdale on Feb 9 at 8:55 PM (US Airways). My next flight is British Airways to London at 9:35 PM. I have to go from T3 to T5. Am I right? Will the time will be enough?

     

    The 9:35 PM ORD-LHR flight is operated by American Airlines and leaves from Terminal 3. Therefore you should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    I have 30 minutes to make my connection, both US Airways flights. Assuming first flight is on time, should I make it with no problem?

     

    Yes, that should be no problem. All US AIrways gates at PHX are connected inside security.

     

  • Canadian flying from MAD via JFK to YYZ

    I will be flying from MAD with KLM to JFK landing Terminal 4 with a connection from Terminal 2 Delta/GoJet to YYZ. On arriving in the US, as a Canadian will I be required to clear US customs? Will I be required to pick up my luggage from T4 and recheck at T2? and finally, I have an hour and a half from landing in JFK to depart YYZ, will this be sufficent time?

     

    KLM does not fly from MAD to JFK. That flight is likely operated by Delta and will indeed arrive in Terminal 4. Yes, as a Canadian you do still have to go through US Customs and immigration. You can re-check your bags after clearing Customs in T4, you do not have to bring them with you to T2. 90 minutes should be barely sufficient for your transfer.

     

  • US Airways Domestic to International Flight

    I'm flying on a domestic US Airways flight from Detroit to PHL and then onto an international flight to Manchester, England. I have approx an hour between connecting flights, do I need to recheck my baggage when I land at PHL? And is an hour long enough to get to my connecting international flight? Land at Terminal C and leave from Terminal A. Its a Friday evening flight (8.50pm) from PHL,

     

    You do not have to do anything with your baggage in PHL on your way to Manchester. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If your first flight is on-time 1 hr should be plenty of time.

    How much time do I need to get from terminal 3 to terminal one ith only carry on

     

    I'd want at least 90 minutes, but it's doable in an hour. However, that leaves very little buffer for delays.

     

  • What gate will I arrive at tomorrow from RDU at 12:53

    I need to find out which terminal or gate I will be arriving at to make arrangements to get to my departure gate. I have bad vision.

     

    There is no RDU-IAH flight scheduled for tomorrow that arrives at 12:53. Please double check your itinerary at United.com

    Hi I'm flying from Philadelphia to Miami, and from Miami to Santo Domingo, DR. I wanted to know if I have to re-check my baggage in Miami or does the airline automatically sends the baggage to the final plane? Thank you!

     

    On your way to Santo Domingo you will not have to do anything with your baggage in Miami. On the way back you will have to claim it after you go though US Immigration, go through US Customs, and then re-check it with US Airways/American immediately afterwards, then go to the departure level and through security for your flight to PHL.

    I am landing from Tunis by Alitalia at 13h45. I have connecting flight of Alitalia from T1 to venise at 17h45 For my bags I need to know if I have to carry them for the check-in at T1or Alitalia will do the transfer of my bags to the next flight.

     

    You will not have to carry your checked bags from T3 to T1.

     

  • A (West) to F, no checked in luggage

    Hi, I'm flying from London to Montreal with a layover of 2 hours in Philadelphia. I have no checked in luggage. I was wondering if I can take the shuttle from A1 to F without first going into security on arrival? I'm not very clear, but it sounds like I have to queue up for security at entry to Terminal F anyway. Please could someone help me understand the mechanics here, many thanks.

     

    Upon arrival in PHL, you will have to go through US Immigration and US Customs, then go to the departure level and through security and then take the shuttle bus to Terminal F. There is actually no security at Terminal F, the only way to access it is by the secure-side shuttle buses from the other terminals. You have to go through US Immigration and customs when connecting in the US, there's no way around that.

     

  • Short Connection Concern

    I'm arriving in IAD from NRT at 3:45pm and to connect at 4:55pm to RDU. Even though they say it's a legal connection, I'm quite concerned I will miss this flight. My seat is also at the very back of the plane. Any help to my situation if I upgrade to economy plus?

     

    1 hr 10 minutes is not a legal International -> Domestic connection length. You need to ask to be rebooked either on a later flight to RDU or over a different United hub such as ORD, SFO, or EWR.

    I am scheduled to arrive at IAD at 3:45pm on a United flight from Tokyo (NRT). My connecting flight (United) from IAD to Boston Logan is scheduled to depart at 5:05pm. Is 1 hr 20 min enough to time to clear immigration/customs and make my connecting flight?

     

    It is possible. However that is prime arrival time into IAD and 1 hr 20 minutes is below the Minimum Intl->Domestic connection time. So it is a bit risky.

     

    Interesting. My husband booked same flight to IAD w/ same departure time (to BTV - Vermont). I asked about the itinerary, also concerned about connections, and United Airlines assured me it is well within "legal" connection times.

     

    Regarding IAD connection -- we also considered changing flight through ORD, buys us an extra 45 minutes, BUT change fee is $300. I wish I knew what United is looking at when they say within legal time limits -- I'm not familiar with Minimum Intl>Domestic connection times, but I think they should be. It will be cheaper to book hotel than change ticket.

     

  • transit time

    We are family of 4 and travelling from CLT to Doha via PHL. The US Airways from CLT is scheduled to arrive PHL 9.10 and the connecting flight, Qatar Airways, is at 10.25. Do we need to recheck in our checked in baggage in PHL? Is the transit time 1 hour is sufficient?

     

    No you will not have to do anything with your baggage, all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate which will be connected inside security. 1 hr should be plenty of time.
