  • connecting flight

    Hi - we will be landing at JFK from Manchester U.K and I am looking at booking connecting flight to Buffalo for Niagara Falls - how long do we need to leave between flights please, so we are not rushing? Will we have to clear customs and security then go through it again for connecting flight? Thanks!

     

    If you are purchasing separate tickets leave at least 3 hours between flights if you do not want to be rushed.

     

    Thank you. We've booked now- we land in JFK at 12.30pm and take off to BUF at 15.40. Should have time!

    I am flying tirana to Rome on Alitalia And transferring to a Alitalia flight to Venice. I have about 1 hour and 25 minutes to make the connection. Is that enough time? What is the easiest way to get from one flight to the other.terminal 1 to 3 ?

     

    You have the terminals backwards. You will arrive in Terminal 3 and depart from Terminal 1. You will go through Schengen Passport Control during your connection. You should have enough time.

    Flight into IAD from Iceland arrives 6:30pm on Sunday 12/21 and separate ticket US Air flight from IAD to Charlotte leaves at 7:55pm. Will that be enough time including checked baggage pickup and recheck?

     

    It's possible, but it's definitely cutting it close. You'll have to be to the US Airways check-in counter with your bags by 7:10

     

    Thanks - I think we will try to find a longer layover

     

    What if we didn't have checked baggage?

    Good day. I will be arriving from Anchorage, AK via Alaska Air on Nov. 2 5 a.m. and I have flight via Korean Air on Nov. 2 12:p.m. Can you help me to locate Korean Air departure area. Thanx

     

    The Korean flight will leave from the S Satellite. You will arrive at the C or D concourse or N Satellite. If you purchased separate tickets and have checked baggage you will have to go to the main terminal to claim your bags and then take them to the Korean check-in counter.

    Arriving from Geneva with SWISS at 15.50 on Saturday terminal 4, I have a flight to San Diego with AA to catch at 17.20 from terminal 8. Do you think it's feasible? I could consider not to check in luggage. I also saw that there might be a fast line for custom check for passengers transferring to another flight.Does this depend on the airline? And if I make it quick through the immigration office how long does it take to get to the next gate? Which shuttle/bus/train should I get?

     

    You will probably be out of customs by about 16:30 if you do not check a bag, that will leave you 50 minutes to take the AirTrain to T8 and go through security. You will have to check in for your AA flight online before you leave Geneva. It's possible - definitely easier if you don't check a bag.

     

    Thanks

    I am flying into charlotte douglas airport @ 6:30pm from jamaica Jan 1st. I will have 1 hour & 10 minutes to get thru customs/immigration to make my flight to Indianapolis,In.....is an hour enough time to get through security & customs/immegration?? thanks for any advise

     

    That is 20 minutes below the minimum International->Domestic connection time. It's possible you will make it but it leaves very little time to spare. There is one later flight to IND from CLT if you miss your connection. You could call US Airways and ask to be rebooked on it or you could try the connection you have and if you miss it, hope there's empty seats on the later flight.

    I am travelling from South Africa (South African airlines) to JFK with a connecting flight to DC on Delta Airlines. I have 2 1/2 hours before my delta flight. Will I have enough time to clear customs at JFK?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. If you purchased tickets together you can re-check your bags after clearing US Customs, otherwise you will have to take them to the Delta counter in T2.

    My friend is flying to Rome by Finnair (AY781). It will be there at 10.15. Connection to Malta goes at 11.00 KM613. What should they know? Is connection possible?

     

    Since both flights are within Schengen they should both be within the same wing of the terminal. Youf friend should check in online for her Air Malta flight before she leaves Finland so that she has her boarding pass.

    We arrive at the airport mid afternoon and have a 7 hour layover leaving at 9:30....any ideas or tour group that could provide us with a tour of Chicago or at least downtown area and Sears tower?

     

    Just take the CTA Blue Line to Clark and Lake and walk around. It's about a 50 minute trip each way.

     

  • CLT to YYC Connection from US Airways to United Express

    My wife and daughter will be flying US Airways from CLT to ORD on US Airways and then must connect to a United Express flight to Calgary with only 50 minutes between flights. Will they be able to get between terminals in time to make their next flight?

     

    Yes, there is a walkway inside security from where they arrive in T3 to where they will depart in T1 or T2. They need to make sure they check in online for their United Express flight before they leave Charlotte.
