  • 37 min connection time - Terminal 1 to Terminal 3
    Mar 25, 2014
    1
    I will be flying into Terminal 1 in SFO and flying out of Terminal 3 - both flights on United Airlines with a 37 minute connection time. Is that enough time? What is the fastest way to get to terminal 3 - walk or shuttle? will I have to go through security again? Thanks.

     

    You will barely have enough time. Take the shuttle, you will not have to go through security. However, note that not many United Express flights use T1 anymore as they recently opened more gates in T3.

     

  • 1 hour 15 min time is sufficient

    Iam traveling from kansas on us airways to chicago which will arrive on terminal 3 and again I have to take the connecting flight that is qatar airways to doha at terminal 3 but the lay over is 1 hour 15 min is that sufficient for me How I have to go??? And what about my baggage do I need to transfer my baggage myself to qatar airways???

     

    Please note that your first flight will be operated by American or American Eagle, not US Airways. That should be a very sufficient layover time. As long as both tickets were bought together your baggage will be transferred and you will just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate which will both be connected inside security in T3.

     

    Thanks a lot for ur response Ya our first flight operated by American Airlines and we have bought tha tickets together So our baggage will be transferred by them nly a kk thank you Our depart time in kansas is 5:50 pm and we reach by 7:30 pm and our layover is 1 hr 15 min So how much will be taken for security check after we arrived??? Should we have to take anyATS train to reach qatar airways departure terminal to doha in chicago??? And one more thing will us airways operated by American Airlines will charge for baggage We are traveling in economy class

     

    All of your flights will be in Terminal 3. You will not have to take the ATS Train or go through security. If you are on an international itinerary, American should not charge you to check your baggage in Kansas.

     

    Thanks a lot for ur valuable information

     

    Zap, My flight schedule is similar to the above. Qatar Airways: Nashville to Chicago to Doha to Bangalore. The layover time for me at Chicago for the next connecting flight to Doha is just 1 Hour 30 Minutes and I will be very much in Terminal 3 then. Would 1 Hour 30 Minutes.be sufficient to: A) Reach the Departure Gate (Chicago to Doha) within Terminal 3 B) Complete the Security Check Process

     

    ZAP ,from Hyderabad to doha to chicago , in qatar airways and from chicago to kansas American Airlines ,so I have booked the tickets together so I have to collect the baggage and I will have to go through security check and I will arrive at terminal 5 in chicago and I have to departure at terminal 3 to kansas so I have nly 2 hr 20 min time is that sufficient for me Plz give rpl and help me iam little bit nervous abt that

    Hi im going from Bogota. Colombia to Tokyo by Houston, I have an American Visa, but I dont know if I have to do Inmigration to take the connecting Flight, I have 3 hours to get the flight to Tokyo, that will be enough? The teo flights are with United, thanks

     

    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration. 3 hours should be plenty of time.

    I am planning a trip from BFS to LAX with air canada this involves a stop at EWR - I have 3 hrs 25 mins between connecting flights is this enough time? Coming home I have 1 hr 50 min between connecting flights is this enough?

     

    Yes, both of those connections should be more than enough time.

    I'm looking at Delta flights from China arriving at Detroit 6-8pm on Saturday, is 1hr 39mins enough time to connect to another domestic Delta flight?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Immigration times in DTW are generally pretty quick and all Delta flights are in the same terminal.

     

  • 1:45 h Connection time enough?

    Booking ticket for elderly mom in wheelchair. She will be returning to South Africa, from San Francisco. Arriving with United and connecting to South African Airways, with a 1 hour 45 min between. Will that be long enough, for her to catch the connection?

     

    Yes, if her first flight is on-time that is enough time.

     

  • baggage claim between domestic and international flight

    I am flying in from Denver arriving at LAX at 950am to board Korean Air at 12 noon. where do I collect my luggage from my frontier flight and what's the best way to get to KA desk to recheck my bags?

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 3, there will be a baggage claim in Terminal 3 for you to claim your bags. You will depart from the International Terminal, which is right next to T3. Just walk along the curbfront from T3 to the International Terminal.

     

  • Icelandair Flight - Tight Layover - Will I Make It?
    Mar 24, 2014

    I will be coming in on an Icelandair Flight that arrives at 7PM. The only flight out of Boston to get to my destination leaves at 7:59PM - That's only a 59 minute layover coming in from Reykjavik. Is it possible for me to make my next flight? I don't know if Icelandair can check my bags all the way since I would be changing over to a domestic carrier and I would need to go through customs. Also, perhaps BOS custom's has a better reputation for being quicker than other airports such as JFK and Icelandair does have a stellar "on time" or earlier reputation. Any input would be helpful. :)

     

    This isn't possible. You'll have to spend the night in Boston.

    Need to get elderly father in law from terminal A to B with luggage to meet family. What is the easiest method?

     

    The Inter-Terminal Train connects all terminals outside security.

    I am Canadian and will be returning from Atlanta to Vancouver(YVR) with a transfer in SFO. I only have 40 minutes in SFO. Is this enough time for me to catch my flight? I'm assuming I'm going to have to collect my bags and go through security again. Am I right? Thanks, getting nervous!

     

    Oh, and both are United flights

     

    No, since both of your flights are on United you will NOT have to collect your bags and go through security in SFO. All of your flights will be in Terminal 3 and should be connected inside security. If your first flight is on-time you should have enough time.

     

    Thank you Iso much!

     

  • Flying From NWT to YVR then SFO...do I pick up my baggage???

    Hi, I'm flying from NT tomorrow with a stop in Calgary and a stop in YVR then on to San Francisco.. What I need to know...do I pick up my bags in YVR before going to US departures? I only have 1 Hour and 30 min before US plane leaves so I don't know if that's enough time???

     

    Your bags will be there to claim once you clear US immigration in the US departures pre-clearance area. You should have enough time.

    I'm flying United from Gulfport, MS through Houston to Seattle. My first flight is 4306 and the flight from Houston is flight #305. I have 1 hr and 11 minutes between flights. Is this enough time to transfer? The flight info doesn't say which terminals the flights operate out of . Thanks!

     

    You will arrive in Terminal A or B at IAH and depart from Terminal C. They are connected inside security by the TerminaLink train. If your first flight is on-time you should have enough time for your connection.

     

  • Virgin America to Singapore Airlines connections.

    I will be flying LAX-JFK-FRA with Virgin America and Singapore Airlines. I am wondering how easy the connection process is between both airlines. I will have 1 hour with 50 minutes to do this connection. Will it be enough?

     

    If your tickets were bought on one reservation then Virgin America can check your bags through to Singapore. Both of your flights will be in Terminal 4 so if your first flight is on-time and your bags are checked through you should have plenty of time and even if you can't get your bags checked through the connection is makeable.

     

    I booked all my flights on one ticket so I will be good on this aspect. It will even give me time to try out the Shake Sack.

    Hi ..I arrive on an international flite American at Term 8, 705PM and have a connecting flight out of Jet Blue Terminal Term 5 @ 850pm. I need to pass immigration, collect baggage and recheck baggage. Is 1 hour and minutes sufficient time assuming all are on time? I have traveled thru JFK before, know about trains but wondering about timing. Is 110 minutes enough? Many thnx ;-)

     

    It's cutting it close, it doesn't leave much room for any delays, especially if AA doesn't check your bags through to JetBlue and you have to transfer them on the airtrain yourself.

     

    The American flight wasn't purchased at the same time as the Jet Blue flight so I yes I would have to schlep the luggage myself. Thanks for the response!

     

    Another ?..if I was 2 stay the night and take a differnt flight the following day what are the hotel options nearest 2 the airport? Cheers
