  • YYZ -> DTW -> CVG

    Hi, I am travelling from YYZ to CVG, with a layover at DTW. I am on a B visa. I am also a Canadian PR holder. Do I have to go through Immigration at DTW? Also, my layover time is 48 mins, will that be sufficient time to go through all the procedures? Thanks.

     

  • short connection time

    We are traveling from Calgary Canada to Amsterdam and have a 50 minute layover at O'hare. Is it possible to make our connection? We go through US customs in Canada and don't go through customs till we land in Amsterdam. We will also only have carry on bags.

     

    If both of your flights are on the same airline it should be enough time as long as your first flight is on-time. If your flight to Amsterdam is on KLM it will be more difficult.

     

    We are flying United for both flights

  • Question on Delta "Legal Connection"
    Nov 23, 2014

    My family of five is traveling this Christmas morning from Indianapolis to Puerto Vallarta via Atlanta. We arrive in Atlanta at 9:03 am and our flight to Puerto Vallarta departs Atlanta at 9:57 am. Delta assures us this is a "legal connection", but I am concerned about making the connection. I am not that familiar with the Atlanta airport and also don't know what to expect on Christmas morning. Can anyone offer guidance? Thank you!

     

    Christmas morning isn't usually extraordinarily busy. All you have to do is take the Plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse E or F. You have enough time.

     

  • Meeting someone during layover at IAH

    My friend will be flying on United Airlines from Gulfport, Mississippi to Houston, Texas on December 21. She will fly on flight UA4588. Her flight arrives in Houston at 7:57 AM, and then she will fly out at 11:25 AM that morning. We plan to meet during this time, which is the reason for her long layover. Arriving in Terminal A that morning, where would be the place to meet her at? I will not be going through security as I will not be flying, so I need somewhere to meet that is outside security. She will need to head back through security and get to Terminal B to catch her departing flight. I have 2 questions: a) Where does she go after arriving in Terminal A to meet me? b) Where do I go after parking to go meet her? Thank you very much for any help!

  • How long is suggested for connected flights

    Hi i'm looking at flights for my family vacation and i was wondering if 45 mins at ORD is long enough for a connecting flight?

     

    If both flights are domestic and on the same airline it is, but it doesn't leave much of a cushion for delays.

    Hi. I Fly DL476 on Jan 26 from FLL to Brussels via JFK. What do I need to know about the connecting flight at JFK to BRU DL 408. Do I need to re-checkin my bags and do I need to go through security again? It seems that arrival and departure is terminal 4. Thanks.

     

    No you do not have to do anything with your bags. Yes both flights will likely be in T4 but you may arrive in T2 which is connected inside security by a Delta shuttle bus.

     

  • Arriving from Helsinki to T8, will my family make the connecting fligh

    Hello, our party of 5 are arrviving from Helsinki at 15.55 pm and need to make it to our connecting flight (American airlines) to San Francisco departing at 1745, everything in T8. We have ESTA, but still need to go through customs at JFK in order to get into the US. Do we also need to pick up our luggage and check it in again to SF? What are the odds on making it to the connecting flight?

     

    That should be enough time. You can recheck your bags at the transfer desk after you clear customs.

     

  • Travelling Delhi to Orlando

    My family is Travelling from Delhi to Orlando with united. I believe their immigration will be at EWR. Wats the transfer process . Do they collect their bags 1st n then do immigration or vice versa. Will they again have to recheck their bags at counter n do security again . How far are the gates of arrival n departure. Would they need to take a tram ? Thanks

     

    At EWR, United uses Terminals B & C (TB, TC) for its international flights - both terminals have their own customs procedures (go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag). United uses for its departures TC (United Express uses both TA & TC). After baggage re-check-in, she needs to take the AirTrain (follow signs) to TC - but needs to go through security check before proceeding to the connecting C gate.

     

  • Gifts of wine

    We would like to send a gift of Canadian ice wine with our international student (16 years of age) to give to his parents. Any way to make it possible?

     

    Doing so is illegal. Only passengers over 21 are allowed to carry alcohol over the border.

    I will have 15 hours between flights at JFK. Is there an area where I can store my bags so I can leave the airport and see the sights?

     

    There are baggage storage facilities on the lower levels of Terminals 1 and 4

  • Meeting Moscowvite... but where?

    Greetings! Transaero flight from Moscow coming in Saturday... age old problem of having to meet someone with no cell phone in an airport the size of a small city!! Can I go to the baggage carousel without a ticket? How do I know which terminal she's arriving at? Is it on the ticket? Sorry so dumb!! Sigh!! Any and all ideas are greatly appreciated!!! Thanks in Advance!!!

     

    Transaero uses Terminal 4. You cannot go to the baggage carousel for an international flight, however, you can meet her at the exit of customs. There will be a lot of other people waiting and standing there as well.

     

    First of all, ZAP... wow! - thank you!!!! You are amazing!! Forgive me, but the Customs' exit... Terminal 4? I'm sure there is signage... do all international travelers go through the same customs exit regardless? (I read that online somewhere) - I'm actually trying to give her a phone before she boards a US Airways domestic connecting flight. Seriously, thank you again!!

     

    Yes, usually all passengers come out the same exit. In T4 there is only one - here is a map of the lower level of T4 - http://www.jfkiat.com/maps/arrivals.pdf

     

    Perfect!! Thanks a TON!!! So helpful!! We're putting our scheme together right now!! =O)
