  • Montreal to charlotte via ORD

    We fly into ORD on 3659 and arrive 7:20am. Do we have to go thru customs? Will we have time to catch our 8:45am ORD to CLT 4634 flight?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in ORD is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will have plenty of time.

    I'm flying ATL-ORD-AMS. My flight from Atlanta lands in Chicago at 4:05PM and then my connecting flight to Amsterdam leaves at 5:25PM. Will I have enough time? Do I have to switch terminals or catch a train? Do I have to re-check my bags and go through another checkpoint? I booked the whole ticket at the same time.

     

    That is a ton of time. If you purchased your tickets together you will not have to do anything with your baggage. What airline are you flying? If both flights are on United then all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Thank you for your quick response! :) The ATL-ORD flight is with Delta and the flight to AMS with KLM.

     

    OK, you still have enough time but the procedure is a little more complex. You will arrive in Terminal 2, you need to exit terminal 2 and follow the signs to the ATS Train to Terminal 5. You will take it to Terminal 5 and go through security.

    Now that the new Immigration/Customs facility is open in Terminal D, how long does it typically take to get through and get to the gate in D, with no checked bags, only carry ons?

     

    It really depends on the time of day. In early Morning and Mid-Afternoon it's probably the longest. Probably 40ish minutes.

     

    Will be arriving around 11 am on a Monday. I have 1 hr 45 min layover. Think it's possible?? American airlines all the way. And will be one of the first off the plane.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

     

    Thank you so much for all your help !

     

  • PDX-SFO-MCO 34 minute connecting time

    Hello, I booked my flight months ago and was assured 34 minutes would be enough time, but now I'm getting worried. Family of 4 flying from PDX to MCO. Layover in SFO is 34 minutes. Called and will be arriving and departing from terminal 3. Will we make it?! I also found the early AM flight from pdx to sfo (UA 392) is 100% on time so that certainly helps. Will they hold the connecting flight a few minutes if needed?

     

    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that should be enough time. They usually don't hold flights. If you miss your connection you will probably be rebooked to Orlando through Houston.

    If I am flying writhin the state of Texas, do I still need a passport?

     

    You do not need a passport for any trip within the United States. However, you do need some sort of photo ID in order to get through security to board the aircraft.

    I arrive Delta C-18 afternoon, She arrives United A-2. Where can we meet? Baggage shared carousel area or?

     

    Those are in different terminals. You will arrive in Terminal C and she will arrive in Terminal B. Whoever arrives earlier can take a shuttle bus on the curbside to the arrival area of the person who arrives later.

    I'll be arriving in houston from cancun on Unitied and taking a connecting flight to Indianapolis. Will I need to get my checked luggage on arrival in houston and recheck it or will it automatically be transferred to my connecting flight

     

    You will arrive in Terminal E, Go though US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, then re-check your baggage at the transfer desk. Then you will go up to the departure level, go through security, and then take the TerminaLink train to your departure terminal if necessary.

    There are not skycaps in the cargo buildings.

    Hi - arriving at Houston on United fllght UA96 from Heathrow on Feb 21st at 16:15. Leaving on United flight UA1565 to San Jose Costa Rica at 17:40 Is that enough time for security etc? Is it true we can't check our bags through to the final destination?.

     

    In Houston, some International->International bags do not have to be claimed to go through US Customs. You will have to ask the United agents. Your connection is 5 minutes shorter than the minimum connection time for International->International. It's possible, but it doesn't leave much time for delays.

    flying DEN - IAD-YUL. customs or security check ii IaD ??

     

    No you will not have to go through customs or security in IAD. You do not go through US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. You will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs when you get to Montreal.

    We fly with Delta. We arrive from Quebec city to JFK so need to take our luggages, clear customs and check luggages again before taking our next flight to Las Vegas. We only have 1h45 minutes, will that be enough?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. However, it doesn't leave much time in case of delays.

  • Going to Aruba

    My friend from Russia has Cariibean Netherlands visa, but unexperienced in foregn travel. I am a US citizen. Can I meet my friend in AMS at the gate from Moscow, so we together can board flight to Aruba? Can my friend stop in AMS in a hotel with Caribbean visa? If there is no answers - please advise where I can find them.

     

    Since your friend is not entering the Schengen Area he will not be allowed to exit the non-schengen wing of the terminal. You MAY be able to get to his arrival gate, but there's no guarantee of that. It should not be hard for him to get from his arrival gate to his departure gate.
