    How long is needed to connect between incoming from Detroit to outgoing to london

     

    What airlines? Were tickets purchased together? If both flights are on United 30 to 40 minutes should be sufficient.

     

  • International to Domestic Transfer at JFK
    Sep 6, 2014

    Flight segments from Billund, Denmark to Amsterdam to JFK for Danish traveler on KLM/Delta Airlines. Connection to domestic Delta flight from JFK to Austin, Texas. Two hour connection time in New York. Possibly carry-on luggage only I understand clearing immigration, collecting any checked luggage, passing customs, and rechecking baggage. I am also aware of Fast-Pass at customs if the connection time is tight. The question is whether I clear customs and then use the shuttle between T2-T4, or vice versa, and avoid additional security lines. Again, this is for an international to domestic connection. Thank you for any info.

     

    You can go through Security in T4 after clearing customs and rechecking your bags and then take the shuttle to T2 or you can take the AirTrain to T2 after you re-check your bags and go through security there. There's no way to avoid having to go through security again in JFK.

     

  • Length Concourse B

    Arrive in Concourse B20 at 6:09pm (due to a canceled flight, and a delayed flight) and my transfer is at 6:35pm B52, is that enough time to walk? I know it's large airport in terms of sq footage, that enough time to walk or should I book it?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time. It's only about a 5-10 minute walk.

     

  • Connecting from Southwest to BA

    Flying into LAS from RNO on Southwest and then out from LAS to LHR on BA. Will we be able to get our bags checked through to LHR and, if so, can we use the tram?

     

    Southwest does not check bags through to any other airlines. You will have to claim them in T1 and take them on the shuttle bus to T3 to check them with BA. Leave at Least 2.5 hours for your transfer.

    I am booking a Dec flight from Boston to NY JFK arriving at 1:20pm at T5 by JetBlue, then I will go T1 to take a plane leaving US at 3:20pm. I have only cabin luggage, will it be enough time for me to do so? how long will it take from T5 to T1 and by waht transport? Thanks

     

    That should be enough time with only cabin luggage. All Terminals at JFK are connected outside security by the Airtrain.

     

  • 45 mins connection

    Is 45 mins enough time to take a connecting flight to London from terminal 1 concourse B to concourse C?

     

    I am flying United from Cincinnati to Chicago and from Chicago to London.

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time if your first flight is on-time. Note that your Cincinnati flight may actually arrive in Terminal 2 concourse E or F, but all United gates at ORD are connected inside security.

    I am flying to Rome on Alitalia And transferring to a Alitalia flight to Venice. I have about an hour and fifteen minutes to make the connection. Is that enough time? What is the easiest way to get from one flight yo the other. Our bags will be checked through

     

    Just follow the signs to T1 upon arrival. You will go through Schengen passport control on your route.

     

  • Flying from SFO to EWR through ORD

    I have 50 min connection time, flying from SFO to EWR through ORD, all flights are American Airlines, from ORD to EWR operated by REPUBLIC AIRLINES AS AMERICAN EAGLE. Since my flight to ORD arrives in 5:30 am, I udnerstand that ATS will be running only every 20 minutes. Is it better to just walk from Terminal 2 to Terminal 3? I will have a carry on only, no checked luggage.

     

    You do not need to use the ATS train. Both of your flights will be in Terminal 3.

     

  • Boston - FCO - VCE on Alitalia Connection Time

    We are planning to fly from Boston to FCO on Alitalia, connecting to VCE. The layover is 1 hr. 55 minutes. Is that likely to be sufficient?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

     

  • Flying from LHR - via MIA - to SDQ

    Hello I am flying American Airlines from London Heathrow to Santo Domingo via Miami. Both flights are AA and I have been told I can check the bags straight through. I've just read that Miami have put in a new customs/ arrivals area that will enable quicker flight connections. Do I still need to collect bags? I am also travelling business. For the outbound flight I have 2hrs 45mins to connect but for the return flight I have only 2hrs 5mins. Also the return is with American Airlines, but then British Airways back to LHR on a codes fare flight. Grateful for your advice. I am a Brit.

     

    Your bags will be tagged through to SDQ but you will have to ask American whether you have to claim them or not. If you do have to claim them you just claim them, walk through customs, and then re-check them with American immediately after.

     

  • Delta from ATL to Meridiana FCO-OLB Terminal 3 How much time?
    Sep 4, 2014
    2
    Arriving on Delta at 7:30 AM at FCO. Will it be possible to catch a Meridiana flight to Olbia at 8:50? I'm booked on a later flight but since it's the same terminal I'm hoping to get the earlier flight.

     

    It should be possible if you don't have checked bags. Might be difficult with checked bags since you'd have to have them moved.

     

    Thank you, very helpful site. I'm not checking a bag so I should make it.

    We are British Passport Holders flying from Vegas to Cabo with a 1hr 9min connection in Phoenix all flights with US Airways - is this enough time & will we have to collect our baggage at Phoenix & check it in again? First time in USA & first time on internal flights so not sure how it works? Thank you

     

    No, you won't have to collect your baggage or do anything in Phoenix except go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will go through Mexican Immigration and customs when you get to Cabo.

     

  • flying from CDG

    My mother will be flying from Roissy CDG United 914 and make a connection to Tampa United 1602. I understand she will have to go thru immigr and customs, but will she have to leave the security zone for connection and reenter thru TSA again. She is 84 and absolutely paniqued by the idea that she won't go thru her beloved Atlanta airport this time. can you tell me what will be her itinerary in Dulles

     

    Yes, she will have to go through security again after she re-checks her bags with United after clearing customs. However, she will be in a separate facility in the basement of the D concourse so there's no way for her to get lost, she just has to follow the signs for connecting passengers and she will go through security.

     

    Thank you ZAP. I have printed the airport map for her and I will be following her on the phone when she arrives

    Hello, I have a 45min connection time, I'm arriving from Phoenix (though AA) and going to Paris (also through AA). Is it enough time? Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Both flights will be in Terminal 3 and all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. It doesn't leave much time for delays though.

    Is 1 hour between terminal c to a enough time to connect?

     

    IAD only has one terminal A and C are just concourses (gate areas). Yes, that should be plenty of time. A and C are connected inside security by the Aerotrain.
