    I'm flying from Dubrovnik to FCO and arrive at 10:35, I have a connection to Montreal Canada at 11:30. My bags will be checked through, will I have enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which should both be in the T3 Satellite.

     

  • Short Layover at LAX

    Hi, I am flying into Costa Rica from Canada with stops in Seattle and LA. We are flying Delta and I am worried about our layover in LA. We have more than enough time in Seattle to get through customs (about 5 hours I think) but only have a 1.2 hour layover in LA. Are all of Deltas flights in the same terminal? And will 1.2 hours be enough time? I am assuming we don't have to go through customs as we will have already done that in Seattle. Thanks, Matt

     

    Yes, all of Delta's flights at LAX are in Terminal 5. Yes, on your way to Costa Rica you won't have to go through customs in LAX. All you have to do in LAX is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.

     

  • TSA Officer, Violates personal privacy of local Nantucket Star.

    Do you think an officer for the local Nantucket governmental agency, TSA, should share information about a person who was subjected to a mandatory body search especially if that information is of a somewhat personal and sensitive nature? The person who was searched is someone we all know. If it was anyone other than her this information would not have been a big deal but this worker because the subject of the search is somewhat famous in our local area, the officer could not contain herself and shared this description of a putdown search with myself and others outside her workplace, at the Nantucket Airport. I for one, didn't appreciate hearing the details and reprimanded her for doing so, and told her never to talk about her work to me again. I can't imagine someone feeling the need to share intimate details about someone, did this give the TSA officer notoriety and raise her status among her peers and contacts because she touched the girl in her private areas?, It may but not for the reasons she might have expected but now it may because of how wrong this is in my opinion. I refuse to fly out of Nantucket to anywhere that requires TSA to search me and or my belongings, it's and invasion of privacy, it's demeaning and I don't want the details of my search shared with anyone. I hope this leads to a reprimand of this TSA officer and a reminder to the other Nantucket officers that they need not share details of their work with anyone. What do you think about this? Tell us of your experience at the hands of the Nantucket TSA.

    I'm flying from Chicago to LHR and get in at 11:35 AM (Terminal 3). My next flight is in (Terminal 5) and departs at 5:35 PM. Is there enough to book a lounge to shower and relax? Any lounge that is suggested?

    Hello, I am an Bulgarian citizen, flying from Montreal (YUL) to Rome, Italy via JFK New York with Delta airlines. In few days I have another flight to my final destination Sofia, Bulgaria. My return flights is via Amsterdam with KLM. Can you please tell me do I need to go through any customs or immigration check at JFK and do I need transit visa.

     

    Yes, you will go through US Immigration and Customs in JFK on your return trip and unless you have Canadian permanent residency, you will need a US Transit Visa both ways. On your way to Rome you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal.

     

    Thank you ZAP for your answer. The information provided is very helpful.

    Landing at terminal 1 - meeting friends in terminal 3 - With my luggage, how do I get to terminal 3 without going to customs again.

     

    You will have to meet them in the arrivals level of Terminal 3. The "meeting spot" is in such a location.

    I am to travel from london heathrow to pensacola via huston one flight i am looking at has 1 hr 35 min to change flights is this enough? and what gates will the fights normally go from so i know where i am going

     

    That would be barely enough time, but it is sufficient if your first flight is on-time. You will arrive in Terminal E and depart from Terminal B.

     

    Thanks will 2.5 hours be enough or would you advise longer outbound from london??

     

  • Enough time for customs?

    American Airlines just notified of flight change that allows a mere 54 minutes from incoming Toronto flight to departing flight. Is it even remotely possible to clear customs in that amount of time??

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security.

    I would appreciate your help.Arriving internationl in PHL have 2 hour layover transfering to domestic flight to Detroit-Canadian passport.Should I have enough time or change my flight and how do I get from Terminal A to Domestic Terminal-F I think.Thank you.

     

    Your flight to Detroit probably will not depart from F. Where are you flying in from? If you are flying out of Terminal F it is connected to the other terminals by a shuttle bus inside security.

    What procedures need I go through? depart LONDON HEATHROW arrive SEATTLE - Depart SEATTLE - AIR ALASKA to SPOKANE. I have almost 2 hours in which to complete this. Y

     

    You will arrive in the S Satellite, go through US Immigration, collect your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk. Then you will go through security and take the underground trains to your departure concourse.

    Yes, in philadelphia you will arrive in Terminal A, go through US Immigration, then claim your bags, go through Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then you will go through security and to your departure gate.

    I have a Delta flight from LHR that lands at DTW at 3:10pm. Can I make a 5:25pm flight from DTW to BWI with enough time to go through customs, get my bag, recheck it and get to the gate?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time.

    And with a dog. Wondering about what International E r F concourse this will arrive on, whether my dog will be transferred to the connecting flight automatically, and id I can make it in 1hr 40 minutes, from immigration, to security to connection via Delta. Thanks!

     

    I believe you will have to claim your dog to bring him through Customs just like the rest of your baggage. You should have enough time.
