    I'm a first time flyer and I didn't think that this would be an issue when I bought my plane ticket, but I'm beginning to worry.. I'm flying from Burlington VT to Cancun, Mexico with a 1.5 hr layover/plane change in Philadelphia. I don't expect the first part of the flight to be an issue and I have someone meeting me in Mexico, but I'm worried about timing with the plane change. I've never flown before and I'm clueless really about the process. Will I have enough time to make the change? I will only have a carry on so I suppose that will be in my favor but I'm starting to really worry about this. The flight from burlington arrives at 10:30am and the flight for cancun departs at 11:55am.

     

    You have plenty of time. you will likely arrive in Terminal F and depart from Terminal A. You have to take a shuttle bus from Terminal F to your departure terminal, bu it runs inside security.

    I'm traveling from Manchester to Amsterdam to Edmonton. Will I have to go through customs in Amsterdam? My arriving flight, I will have 1 hour and 50 minutes on the ground. My return flight, I will be on the ground for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Is that enough time?

     

    No, since you will not be entering the Schengen Area you will not go through passport control or customs in Amsterdam. you will have plenty of time for your connections.

    I am travelling to Miami next week, I would like to know if I arrive at the airport at 4:30 AM, approximately how much time it will take to be ready with my luggage to take a cab.

     

    You will probably be out by 5:15-5:30 AM.

    Our family's American Airlines flight arrives in Rome FCO at 9:30AM and we have only carry-on luggage. How early can we safely pre-book a high speed train to Naples (11AM / 11:30AM / 12PM / 12:30PM / 1PM)?

     

    You should be fine with the 11 AM flight, but you could book the 11:30 as well.

    I'm flying from atl to jfk to fra om May2. Will I have time for connection in jfk?

     

    What airlines are you flying? Were your tickets purchased together or separately? How much time do you have for your connection? I can't really answer the question with the limited info you've provided.

     

  • Greyhound station- IAH

    Please tell me the ways to reach IAH airport from Greyhound station, Houston

     

    If you don't want to take a taxi, the 102 bus goes from near the Grehound Terminal to the Airport. However, it takes roughly 90 minutes and only runs every 40 minutes, so you'd need to leave quite a bit of time for your transfer. A Taxi would take 30-45 minutes, depending on time of day.

    My first time flying out of ATL to SRQ. What's the easiest way to navigate the airport. Flying Delta.

     

    Just follow the overhead signs. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. It's a big airport but the layout is very simple.

     

  • 35 minute layover - is this enough time

    I am flying from San Diego to Toledo on American Airlines and have a 35 min layover at O'Hare. does anybody know if the connecting flights will be in the same terminal and if 35 minutes is enough time for me to catch the next plane?

     

    Yes, both flights will be in Terminal 3, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. if your first flight is on-time you should have enough time.

    We are moving to Catalonia and flying in with our dog as cargo. Where in BCN will we reunite with him? Where does he clear customs? Is there a fee for him? Thanks!

     

    Is BCN your final destination? You will claim him at a special baggage claim. Here is the info on bringing your dog into Spain - http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/Spain.cfm

     

  • Clearing customs and making connecting flight

    I will be trying from Punta Cana to IND through PHL. I have a 1hr 10min layover and will have checked bags. Is this enough time?

     

    That's 20 minutes shorter than the recommended International to Domestic connection time. Things will have to go exceptionally smoothly in order for you to make it. If you can rebook either a later flight to Indy, earlier flight from Punta Cana, or a connection through Charlotte instead of PHL, I would try to get that instead.
