  • Onward flight

    My son is travelling from CIncinnati to Manchester changing at Philadeplhia. He arrives at Terminal C at 7.55pm and leaves from Terminal A at 8.50pm to Manchester on 31.8.14. As he is travelling on his own, I wonder if u could let me know if this will be enough time for him to catch the connecting flight home.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All he has to do in PHL on his way to Manchester is to walk from his arrival gate to his departure gate, which are connected by walkways inside security.

     

    Thank u very much for your reponse. U have put my mind at rest now

     

  • Lost and Found?

    I left a book behind at the airport over the weekend. Is there a lost and found? No one picks up the phone at the airport and so far no one has returned my call when I left a message.

     

    This is not the airport's website. You'll just have to keep calling.

     

  • Flying from CTA to States, stop in FCO
    Aug 25, 2014

    I'm flying from CTA to The states using Alitalia and I connect in FCO. I already have all my boarding passes and tickets. Will 2 hour layover be enough to get on my next plane? What will the process be?

     

    If both flights are on Alitalia you will arrive in Terminal 1 and follow the signs to Terminal 3. At some point along the way you will go through Schengen exit passport control and security. You should have enough time.

    Thomas Cook Airlines will start a 3 x per week charter flight from Manchester to New York in 2015. I'm booked onto that service and wondered if anyone knows which JFK terminal we would be using on arrival?

     

    The Terminal has not been announced yet as the flight is still 7 months away. However, it will likely be either Terminal 1 or Terminal 4.

     

    Thank you

    I'm traveling from Guadalajara, Mexico [Delta574] to Los Angeles then to Kahului [Delta1219]... i have a lay over of 2 hours in LAX, do you think I'll be able to pass customs, TSA, and perhaps re.check my baggage (don't know if Delta will put them from Guadalajara checked till Kahului). By the way I'm Mexican so the line will be longer in customs, I'm guessing

     

    You should have enough time. Everything should be within Terminal 5. You will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs, then re-check your bags with Delta.

    I flew out of EWR yesterday morning and misplaced my camera. It is in a black pouch and has a 55 to 135 telephoto. It is only 12 mp, an older camera, but I like it. Please let me know the best place to contact to find out more Thank you

     

  • Help getting through immigration quickly.

    We have had our flight arrival changed from 0630 to 0710 arriving from Australia. We are booked on a train leaving union station at 1010. I was informed that it was ok before but now I do not see how we will get through immigration onto a bus and at union station by 0945. Any solutions please. The train only goes every 24 hours. Thanks

     

    At that time of the morning I think you will be out of customs by 8 at the latest. If you can make the 8 AM bus you will be at Union Station at 8:50. Even if you miss that bus and are on the 8:30 bus, you will be at Union Station at 9:20.

     

    Thank you.

     

  • Never flew into EWR before!

    I am flying into EWR on Sat. 23rd at 4:09 pm (United out of MCO) I will be flying out at 7:00 pm Lufthansa for Dublin. I have never used Newark before, what are the suggested procedures? Bag pick-up? customs? Time? Terminals?

     

    you do not go through Customs when leaving the US nor will you have to do anything with your bags in EWR. Also, Lufhtansa does not fly from Newark to Dublin, so that flight will be on United as well. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will both be in Terminal C. You should have plenty of time.

     

  • Leaving car key for passenger pickup

    I would like to park a car at SMF short-term parking for a flight out and leave the car key and parking space number for another passenger coming in to SMF to pick up. Can I do that at Baggage Claim? Is there a charge?

     

    No, I've never heard of anywhere that will do that for you. you should get a second key to the car and mail it to the person and then text or email them the parking location once it's parked.

    We are landing at 15 at T5, then flying with spirit airlines from T3 at 16:20. 1h20min is very little, but will it be enough?

     

    No, that is not enough time. Your airline on DUS-ORD will not transfer your bags to Spirit and you will not make it to the Spirit counter early enough to check your bags for ORD-LAX. You should not have bought that ticket.

     

    Thank you ZAP for the answer. I know this is very risky, but sometimes flight by Lufthansa is a little bit earlier then 15. Maybe there is a chance? Spirit won't give any money back. And if we can't make it we will have to buy some other tickets. Prices are quite high already.

     

    Or maybe without bags, just with the cabin ones? Is it possible then?

     

    With cabin bags and checking in online for your Spirit flight before you leave Germany should be doable. Note that Spirit charges for carry-on bags.

     

    Once again, big thank you ZAP! This is really helpful.

     

  • How early should I arrive for domestic flight after online check-in

    I'm flying in from CLT arriving on Z concourse and have 30 minutes between arrival and departure at B79...is this enough time and what's the fastest way to get between these terminals?

     

    US Airways no longer uses the Z gates, Frontier uses them now. If you are flying US Airways/American both of your flights will be on B.

     

  • 44 Minute Connection time for International Flight

    We are arriving on United from Boise and only have 44 minutes before the next United Flight leaves for Brussells. Is that enough time to get through customs/security?

     

  • Electronic devices connecting flight
    Aug 15, 2014

    Hi, when you fly from Europe to the US electronic devices need to be able to be switched on and be fully charged before flying to the US. We will fly from Amsterdam to Philadelphia and from Philadelphia to Knoxville. After the roughly 9 hr flight from Europe to the US I'm pretty sure the iPad and iPods batteries will be done. Will this be a problem for our flight from Philadelphia to Knowxville? Are we allowed to bring those kind of devices on board with empty batteries when you have a connecting flight? Thanks for the help!

     

    They do not have that requirement when going through security at US Airports.
