  • Transferring from International Flight to Domestic Flight
    Jan 21, 2015
    I have a Delta flight from LHR that lands at DTW at 3:10pm. Can I make a 5:25pm flight from DTW to BWI with enough time to go through customs, get my bag, recheck it and get to the gate?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time.

    And with a dog. Wondering about what International E r F concourse this will arrive on, whether my dog will be transferred to the connecting flight automatically, and id I can make it in 1hr 40 minutes, from immigration, to security to connection via Delta. Thanks!


    I believe you will have to claim your dog to bring him through Customs just like the rest of your baggage. You should have enough time.


  • Transfer from Terminal A to C
    Jan 18, 2015
    Hi I am booking a flight from Knoxville to Glasgow with united and my domestic flight arrives at Newark in terminal A and I need to connect to terminal c for the flight to Glasgow. We have a layover of 4 hours. Is there an opportunity to go outside to have a smoke or do I need to stay within the airport? thanks for any feedback.


    Yes, you can exit security in Terminal A, find a place where smoking is allowed, then make your way to the AirTrain and take it to Terminal C. You will then have to go through security in Terminal C so make sure you have your boarding passes and ID with you when you do this.


  • International transfer

    Hi, I'm planning to fly to Montreal from Heathrow, London travelling via Philadelphia. Do I need to clear US customs when I get to Philadelphia and how long should I allow for the transfer? Many thanks.


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal. However, you will arrive in Terminal F and depart from Terminal A, opposite sides of the airport, so leave at least an hour between flights.


  • Is 2 hours 15 minutes enough?

    Hi, I'm landing SFO airport at 6.30pm from Taiwan through Eva Air and then having a connecting flight to OR with Virgin America at 8.45pm (Booked separately). Am I able to catch up the connecting flight? Thanks.


    That would be probably enough time. But probably doesn't leave enough time for any delays or issues with immigration.


    I have 3hrs between landing on my flight from London and leaving for New Zealand. Will I have to collect all my bags and re check in and will I have time to use Freshen up for a shower? Is freshen up easily accessible or would there be security problems? Thanks


    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, You could probably use the restroom after you claim your bags and before you go through Customs, but I'm not 100% sure if there is a restroom available there.

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. You will go through Schengen passport control on your route from T3 to T1.


  • 55 Minute layover between flights in Summer

    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.

  • Connection time
    Jan 14, 2015
    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.

    Southwest and Delta use the same baggage claim area.


  • 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.
