  • Good Meeting Point Terminal 4
    Sep 29, 2014
    1
    So my friend and I are meeting at JFK. His flight should arrive to Terminal 4 and mine to Terminal 2. His phone won't work, since he's coming from London, so we agreed I'll just come meet him at Terminal 4 since my flight arrives a little earlier. Where is a good place to meet? There won't be any way for us to communicate, so we have to agree on a meeting point before hand. Thanks!!

     

    There is a diner in the arrivals area of Terminal 4. You can't miss it. It's called Central Diner.

    Can i get from terminal 1 to terminal 3 at Chicago (ORD) without going through security? if so, what is best way? is bus/shuttle only option?

     

    Yes, you can, there is a walkway inside security between T1 and T2 and T2 and T3. However, why do you have to? What airlines are you flying?

  • 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?

     

    If you miss your connection you will be rebooked. However, there is only one IAD-ZRH flight every day, so you will be probably rebooked to Zurich via Frankfurt or Munich, which offer later departures from IAD. Worst case you will have to spend the night in DC and you will be booked on the next day's flight to ZRH.

    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

     

    Take train to downtown. From there, South Shore Train goes to south bend. station is at Randolph and Michigan.

    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.
