  • Transit Cancun-Washington-Zurich

    We booked a United Flight, leaving Friday 31. October 2014 at 11:27 am from Cancun [CUN]. We will land Friday, 31. October 2014 16:44 pm in Washington, Dulles [IAD] Do we have enough time to catch the following flight United, UA 936, Economy, Friday, 31. October 2014, 17:55 pm, Washington, Dulles [IAD] to Zurich [ZRH] Please let us know, so we can get back to the airline asap. Thank you very much. setareh

     

    Do we have to claim the bags and re-check as well?

     

    You will arrive in Concourse C, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags with United, then go through security and back up to your departure gate. It's maybe possible but there's absolutely no time to spare for delays. If you've already booked it there's not much you can do other than ask for a refund as there is only one flight a day on CUN-IAD and IAD-ZRH.

    Hello We are flying from Cancun to Zurich and have about 65 minutes to change the plane in Washington. Is there any support or service we can use to make sure, we catch the connecting flight? What if we miss it?

     

    65 minutes is totally inadequate for your transfer. You need to be rebooked.

     

    Thank you! The airline wont. Do you know if this timeframe is outside the legal time? What if we miss the plane? Will united put us on the next available plane or do we have to buy a new ticket?

     

  • Trains from ORD to South Bend

    Are there any trains from O'Hare airport to South Bend, and how often do they run. Can anyone help me please..

     

    There are no direct trains. You have to take the CTA Blue Line to downtown Chicago then walk to Millenium Station to take the South Shore Line to South Bend. However, there is direct bus service from O'Hare to South Bend - http://www.coachusa.com/info/tristateunitedlimo/gc/coach.index.item1.content.asp

    I'm trying to find out if I can get a train direct from Midway airport to South Bend. Is it possible?

     

    There are no direct trains. You have to take the CTA Orange Line to downtown Chicago then walk to Millenium Station to take the South Shore Line to South Bend.

    I have booked a flight from Birmingham to Orlando, with a connection through Newark. I am flying on one ticket. The time between flights is 1hr 15 mins will I make it?! My travel advisor in the UK told me that it is sold through United Airlines and is definitely do-able. Help!

     

    EDIT hi this is the return journey part of my holiday. Orlando international to Newark lands and I have just over an hour to catch my Newark to Birmingham flight.... Is there enough time??

     

    On the return trip it will be very doable as you do not go through US Customs or immigration when you leave the US - you will just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in EWR.

     

    Phew!! Thank you :)

     

  • Transit to Toronto

    We are arriving to JFK with Finnair and have connection flight to Toronto by American airlines. Do we need to go thru customs and claim our luggages as we will not stay in US? How about when coming back with same route ?

     

    On your way to Toronto, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check your bags with American, then go to the departurre level and through security. On the way back you will go through US Immigration and Customs in Toronto Preclearance. Your arrival into JFK will be like a domestic flight. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate on that trip.

    I'm flying into MSP from Dallas at Terminal 1 and catching a connecting Delta flight to Missoula..Will my flight to Missoula leave out of the same Terminal that i arrive in or will i have to change Terminals? Never been to this airport so i don't know the lay of the land..thanks for the help!

     

    All Delta flights use the same terminal, the Lindbergh terminal and all gates in the Lindbergh terminal are connected inside security.

    Is the baggage claim area on the same level and close to the area where a taxi/van would pick you up?

     

    What Terminal? Schengen or non-schengen flight?

    Hi, we are picking up my mother tomorrow, arriving in 4:35pm at T3, we never been to T3. She is Korean, so expecting a waiting time for her at passport control. Where should we park to pick her up and how much that cost? And how long later after her arrival time will be the best for us to minimize our waiting time at the carrousel to pick my mom up? And any Wifi Zone after her arrival at T3? Thank you so much!

     

    She will actually claim her baggage before going through customs, so you won't be waiting for her at the carousel, you will meet her at the exit of customs. I would expect that she would come out of customs sometime between 5 and 5:15 if her flight is on-time. I'm sure there is a short term parking lot.

    1) I am arriving from Nashville at 10.15pm and taking a connecting flight the NEXT MORNING for Punta Cana at 9.05am. My question is : can I check my luggage from Nashville to Punta Cana or do I have to pick it upon arrival in EWR? and then check in again? 2) What is the time limit to check in for the flight to Punta Cana? 3) The same question as 1) but will be arriving IAD from Punta Cana in the evening a week later and then flying to Geneva Switzerland the following afternoon

     

    I believe you will have to pick up your baggage in Newark. You should aim to check in for your Punta Cana flight 90 minutes before scheduled departure, so 7:35. On your way back, you will go through US Immigration and Customs when you arrive in IAD. You will have to claim your baggage anyway on that trip in order to go through US Immigration. They won't allow you to re-check your bags almost an entire day before your next flight.

    Please start flying into knoxville TN we drive all the way to use Southwest to bring family from Chicago & Arizona & Buffalo NY but the drive is getting a bit much. We hate to switch but

     

    It is very unlikely that Southwest will begin flying to Knoxville any time soon.

     

  • Which Terminal to Depart From
    Sep 15, 2014

    Which terminal should we use to fly from ORD to YEG? We want to save time by making sure we are let off at the correct terminal! Thanks very much!

     

    Check flight status on united.com (assuming you're flying United). If the gate starts with B or C, it's Terminal 1, if it's E or F it's terminal 2. However, if you have to check a bag, you will have to be let off in Terminal 1 to do so. Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 are connected inside security by a walkway, so even if you have to change terminals it's not a big deal.

     

    Thanks very much! Your answer was extremely helpful and very much appreciated!

  • need transportation from O'Hare to Hammond, IN

    What are my options for transportation from the airport to Hammond, IN? I'm arriving early the 12th on US Airways. Thanks!

     

    Coach USA has a shuttle from O'Hare to Highland, which is right near Hammond. http://www.coachusa.com/tristateunitedlimo/ss.ohareairport.asp If the schedule for that doesn't work for you, you can take the Blue Line to downtown chicago, then walk to Millennium Station and take the South Shore Line to Hammond.
