    Arriving on Cape Air and departing on Jet Blue, no bags. Is 55 minutes enough time


    Yes, that should be enough time if you check in for your JetBlue flight before leaving on your Cape Air flight.

    Hi! I want to book a flight from Madrid, Spain, to Las Vegas that goes through Philadelphia. I have 1 hour 35 minutes from arrival to departure. Both flights are operated by American Airlines, but I can't find the specifics about the terminals. Will I be able to make it if I travel with no checked luggage? Thank you in advance


    Yes, that is enough time.

  • layover will I have enough time?

    I will be on icelandair flight Flight: FI #645, IcelandAir Arrive: Sun 22-FEB 6:30 pm. Do you think I will have time to get through customs and get checked luggage for the USAIrways flight Flight 5634 leaving at 7:59 PM?


    On separate tickets? No, that's not enough time.


    Yes it would be seperate tickets first on IclandAir then on USAirways. If we do not have checked baggage could we make it? Thanks!


    Without checked baggage it might be barely possible. You would still have to go from Terminal E to Terminal B and go through security. If you decide to do it make sure you check-in online for your US Airways flight before you leave Europe/Iceland.

  • Rechecking bag after customs
    Jan 11, 2015
    Will be arriving in IAD via SAA....after going through customs, will I be able to check my bags in to Southwest Airlines from customs, or will I have to go to the Southwest ticket counter.


    You have to take it to the Southwest ticket counter. Southwest doesn't interline baggage with any other airlines.


  • Munich - IAD - St. Louis
    Jan 11, 2015
    I am arriving at IAD from Munich, Germany on Tuesday on UA133 at 15:30 and will transfer to UA3434 to St. Louis leaving at 17:14. Will I need to claim my luggage upon my arrival to IAD and re-check it again? Will I have enough time to make my connection? Both flights are with United and I purchased the tickets together. It would be great if you could shortly describe the transfer process at IAD. Any help will be highly appreciated.


    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    I am a canadian travelling alaska from hawaii to canada via seattle. Is 40 min enough connection time? Will i need to collect my luggage? Tnx!


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. All you have to do in Seattle is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If your flight is late and you miss your connection Alaska has very frequent flights from Seattle to Vancouver.

    My USAir flight leaves at 11:35 am . Planned to take the express train from Termini to FCO. How many hours in advance should i arrive ? 2 or 3 (travel in 2 weeks )


    If you can, 3. It takes awhile to get from the train station at FCO to Terminal 5.


  • Connecting Flight
    Jan 8, 2015
    I am flying in to CDG from Atlanta Georgia USA, ATL, and have a connecting flight to Rome, FCO, through a different airline. I have 1.5hours between flights. Is this enough to go through passport control and get to my next flight? Will I also have to go through security again?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You probably will have to go through security again, but security is much less time consuming at European airports.

  • Sydney to Fort Myers, Dallas Connection. Customs
    Jan 6, 2015
    Flying from Sydney with a connection in DFW. 4 hour layover. Is this enough time to go through customs? Do I need to go to baggage claim to retrieve luggage, then through customs, back through security to my departing gate? Thanks for your help!


    Yes, you have the procedure correct and yes, 4 hours is plenty of time.

    I will be flying from Savannah, GA to ORD. I then have a 1 hr layover before catching a flight to Moline, IL. It will be myself and my three kids. We will have carry on luggage. Will this layover time be enough? Thanks!


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. If both flights are on United Express they will likely both be in Terminal 2. However, even if one is in Terminal 1, all United and United Express gates at ORD are connected inside security.


  • 2hr Stopover en-route to Toronto
    Jan 7, 2015
    I will be arriving from Dubai on Emirate flight at 07.45 on Monday morning with connecting fight on Delta at 09.55 to Toronto (tickets purchased separately). Will there be enough time to clear immigration/customs after arrival to clear and check in luggage for the next flight?


    Further to previous message, forgot to mention both flights are to/from T4.


    Your flight to Toronto will actually depart from Terminal 2. And you are really pushing what's possible since you have two separate itineraries. i would not have booked that connection.


    Thank you ZAP, fortunately I hadn't yet confirmed the booking so will reschedule to a later flight to Toronto. Kind regards
