  • Clearing customs for connecting flight
    May 22, 2015
    1
    Family of 4 travelling from Australia to Orlando with stop in Dallas. Our Qantas flight arrives at 13:35 with American Airlines flight departing at 15:03. Is this enough time to pass through customs? Do we need to retrieve bags or can they go straight through to Orlando?

     

    Yes, in Dallas you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate, which will likely be in another terminal. It is possible for you to make your connection, but there is no time to spare if there are any delays. Luckily if you miss your connection, American flies many flights from DFW to Orlando.

     

  • AC 874 arrival gate ?, which gate to get to AC9497=LH284 ?

    I am ignorant ot the process of gate connections at FRA. USA citizen from AC874 going on to BLQ via AC9497=LH284. I will have 1.25 hr between. Bags checked thru to BLQ, Where do I go? Passport Control ?? then which gate for AC9497=LH284 short haul to BLQ. Thanks for your help, I need it!

     

    Yes, in Frankfurt you will go through Schengen passport control, enter the Schengen pier of the terminal where your flight to Bologna will depart, and then likely take a bus to your plane from the departure gate. You should have enough time.

     

    Thanks, that is the kind of good info we can't get from a travel agent. grazie mille.

     

  • PDX-SEA-DXB

    I have a flight from PDX to SEA landing at 3.15pm, and a connecting flight to DXB at 5.40pm. I'm checking in the bags in PDX all the way to DXB, but need to collect boarding passes for my SEA-DXB flight at the Emirates departure gates. What is the quickest way to get from Alaska Horizon Concourse C to the Emirates departure gate (Gate S) in SeaTac? I'm hoping I'll have enough time to collect boarding passes and get through security.

     

    Walk to the A or B concourse and then take the underground train to S. There should be signs showing the fastest way to S when you arrive.

    Hi, We are arriving on NZ0028 at 1.15pm at terminal D and have 2 hours before our flight to NYC from terminal C. We will need to clear customs as we are coming from NZ. We will have US visas but travelling on NZ passports. His this enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

     

  • enough time for immigration etc?

    hi there. We're arriving ATL from Germany. My connecting domestic flight to MIA departs 90 minutes later. Is there enough time for immigration, claiming baggage and re-checking etc. and moving to the other concourse? Thanks a lot in advance.

     

    That should be barely enough time.

     

    thanks ZAP. What would you suggest instead?

     

    I would probably still try it if you've already booked it. If you haven't booked it yet I would try for a later flight to Miami.

     

  • Montreal-Rome-Lamezia Terme Connection

    Arrive from Montreal T-3 @ 10:05 a., depart to Lamezia-Terme T-1 @ 11:30 a. Enough time?

     

    If your tickets were bought on one reservation that should be enough time, barely. If separate tickets it will be very difficult.

    I arrive Sky Harbor Term 4 gate B11 at 10a. Need to get to A27 for 10:25 departure. Is there enough time to make the connection?

     

    That will be extremely difficult. It depends on the first flight being early.

     

  • LIT - DFW - YVR

    Just to be certain. Do we need to collect baggage in DFW to make this connection or will it check through to YVR?

     

    No, you will not have to claim your baggage in DFW. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security.

     

  • Is 1.5 hours enough time to between flights from Brazil to RDU

    The flight I'm looking at will arrive from Brazil (GRU) on a Saturday at 06:29 AM. I will need to collect my bags, get through customs and catch a flight to RDU at 08:07 AM. The Airline is American - in on a 777 and out on a Embraer ERJ-140.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time but leaves no time to spare for delays.

     

    Thanks for the feedback. Based on your experience, do you think there will be delays at 6:29 AM on a Saturday morning (i know there are a lot of variables, but would like your gut feel). Is this a risk you would take?

     

    Generally flights from Brazil run fairly on-time because the aircraft spend all day waiting in Brazil and there is no congestion in the US that early in the morning.

     

  • Connecting flight DFW to CLT to London Heathrow

    Hi I am flying from Dfw to Charlotte and have a connecting flight to London heathrow. I arrive Charlotte at 21:13 and depart for london at 22:30 is this enough time and do I have to go through security again?

     

    That is plenty of time. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You do not have to go through security.

     

    Thanks for your reply. An easy connection at Clt to look forward too. So long as the weather does not delay flight all will be good.

     

  • SEA to CDG 40 min layover?

    We fly from GEG (Spokane) to SEA and have 39 minutes to get from a SkyWest (booked through Delta) flight to the Delta flight to Paris. Are we going to arrive at the south satellite and catch our departure to paris there, too? Any chance our luggage will make the connection?

     

    Yes, if the first flight is on-time you should be OK. Delta and Delta Connection use gates in A and S. They are connected inside security by an underground train.

    Is 1 hour enough time between Flights. Coming from London (LHR) I will be landing in terminal E and need to get to terminal B in one hour for my connection to El Paso. Is this enough time to go through customs, re-check my bag, and go through security again to get to terminal B?

     

    NO, 1 hour is not sufficient time for an International to Domestic connection in Houston. 90 minutes is the bare minimum. You need to contact United or your Travel agent and get on a later flight to El Paso.

    Hi, I want to book Delta from Germany to Jamaica with 2.45 hours layover in Atlanta. Am I landing and departing from the same terminal? Do I have enough time for the whole customs, baggage process? Thanks.

     

    Yes, both flights will be in the E and F concourse of the International Terminal. Yes, that should be plenty of time for US Immigration/Customs, baggage claiming/re-checking, and security.

    I am travelling from MIA to LHR with a 35 minute connection time at IAH. I am very concerned with the connection time. Can it be done? and if we miss our flight will United Airlines put us on the next flight for free? We are landing at terminal C and depart at terminal E.

     

    Yes, it is possible but depends on the flight from Miami being on-time. Yes, if you miss it they will put you on the next available flight, but that may not be until the next evening.

     

  • Arriving Air Canada departing Alitalia to Catania, in 1hr 35mins
    May 21, 2015

    Arriving Air Canada departing Alitalia to Catania on separate tickets with checked bags. We have 1hr 35mins between flights, is this enough time? The Air Canad and Alitalia are seprarte tickts so I presume we will have to collect our bags then check in with Alitalia.

     

    It's possible but everything will have to go very smoothly for you to get your bags to the Alitalia desk in T1 before the bag cutoff.

     

    Thanks, we will have to keep our fingers crossed that everything goes in our favour.
