  • 1 hour layover

    I will be travelling back from O'hare, Chicago to Manila, Philippines, with a 1 hr stopover in Detroit. All via Delta. WOuld 1 hour be safe enough to catch the plane to Manila? Do i have to pass thru immigration in Detroit and re-check in my bags? Thanks.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. you do not go through US Immigration when leaving the US. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    thanks! this is such a helpful site!

    Have only 50 minutes layover from pty to lax is that feasible?

     

    No, that is not feasible. You need at least 90 minutes. There should be a later flight to LAX.

    Hello, we are flying from Vietnam through Houston with United, arriving in Mexico at 14h09, and have a flight to Cuba at 16h15 with Aeromexico. Can we make it? Thanks

     

    Considering that you will have to change terminals and that you will have to clear Mexican immigration and customs first, It hink it will be very difficult.

    We will be flying PHX - JFK on USAIRWAYS arriving at 5:07 pm. We have a separate ticket (purchased on sale) from JFK to LIN on BA which leaves at 8:40 pm the same day. While this is a codeshare flight, we will have to re check our bags since the tix were purchased separately. Is this enough time to make the connection?

     

    You can show your BA confirmation to the US Airways agent in PHX and ask if they can check your bags through to LIN, but they are not obligated to. You should have plenty of time to make your connection even if the bags are not checked through.

     

    Thank you very much for the quick reply!

    I arrive from Auckland at Terminal 2 on Air NZ at 7:15am and depart on Delta to Puerto Vallarta at Terminal 5 at 10:20am . Will this be enough time with bags not checked through ?

     

    That would be barely enough time. You will have to run across the airport to Terminal 5 to get your bags checked in time.

     

  • 90 Mins Layover (Vancouver - Fort McMurray, AB)

    I want to know if 90 minutes for a layover is enough time since I am a first time visitor in Canada. I still need to go through immigration and I have to claim my baggage then check-in again to the domestic flight going to Alberta.

     

    That would be barely enough time if the tickets are purchased on one reservation.

    Hello. I have just had my flights changed by United. I am flying Knoxville to Washington for a connecting flight on to London. The layover I now have in Dulles has been shortened to 103 minutes, please can you tell me if this is enough time as I have to change gates probably from C to A. Many thanks for your help!

     

    That should still be plenty of time

    I let my husband book our trip to Cancun, and I think it was a mistake. He got us on a flight that, on the return leg, makes a connection in Philadelphia landing at 6:53PM and leaving for Minneapolis at 8:22. When I saw this, I was immediately worried. These are my thoughts about how the night will go: Land at 6:53 Off plane at 7:00 Use bathroom, start walk to customs at 7:05 Arrive at Customs at 7:12 Leave Customs at 7:25 Arrive at Immigration at 7:30 Depart Immigration at 7:40 Get bags, recheck them at bag drop at 7:47 Walk to security, arriving at 7:55 Thru security at 8:10 Arriving at Terminal B and our assigned gate at 8:20 Not enough time! Please tell me where I'm slipping up, or if I got that correct and should rebook with the airline. This takes place on a Sunday, and I've got an important meeting I can't miss on Monday. Please Help!

     

    Well, you don't have the order of events right. Also you have the customs and immigration and re-check orocess taking you 35 minutes. It really shouldn't take that long ate on a Sunday in Philadelphia. Your connection is certainly possible if uyour flight from Cancun is on-time.

     

    I forgot to mention, the flight was booked separately. Will that change things? Will we have to recheck bags? If so, can we still make it?

     

    You will have to claim your bags anyway to go through US Customs. If both tickets are on US Airways then you can show your second booking to the agent in Cancun and she should be able to tag your bags through to MSP so you can re-check them at the transfer desk in PHL.

    I am flying in from New Orleans to Atlanta with a 30 minutes layover , my tickets online says terminal s to get to Boston how do I find terminal s?

     

    You don't actually have to change terminals. You just have to take the plane train from your arrival concourse to youir departure concourse. You have barely enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    I'm travelling from SJo to IAD and from there to LHR and have a 1h40' layover time in IAD. However I need to go through costums and recheck my bags (right?) although I'm just transfering through the US and not leaving the airport. Will that be enough time? I once had to wait 3 hours at JFK immigrations, so I' m a litte worried!

     

    That should be enough time. IAD is a fairly efficient airport for International connections by US Stanards

     

  • YVR --> SFO --> HNL

    I bought this as a complete ticket (not separately): YVR 6am --> SFO 8:26am SFO 9:06am --> HNL 11:30am Will I make the connection if I have checked luggage? If not, why on earth would United put these flights together as one journey?

     

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

    from Terminal A to C in 1 hour? Do I have to walk or is there a tram?

     

    United runs a shuttle inside security between their gates in A and C. The AirTrain also runs outside security between A and C. It's not a practical walk.

    Is US Airways in the same terminal as Southwest Airlines? We arrive at 11:23 am on US Airways and are to depart at 1:10 on Southwest Airlines

     

    What airport? Will you have checked bags?

     

    No checked bags and at Phoenix International Airport

     

    Yes, US Airways and Southwest are in the same terminal. Without checked bags, you can make it. Check in for your Southwest flight online before you leave on your first flight.

     

    Thank you.

    I am traveling with 2 seniors and will have a 95 minute layover in Amsterdam on the way to Istanbul. Is that enough time, will we need to recheck our bags? Flight will be Delta to AMS and KLM to Istanbul.

     

    All you will have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate and go through security. You should have plenty of time.
