  • Enough time for customs?
    Jan 25, 2015
    American Airlines just notified of flight change that allows a mere 54 minutes from incoming Toronto flight to departing flight. Is it even remotely possible to clear customs in that amount of time??


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The SkyLink train connects all terminals inside security.

    I would appreciate your help.Arriving internationl in PHL have 2 hour layover transfering to domestic flight to Detroit-Canadian passport.Should I have enough time or change my flight and how do I get from Terminal A to Domestic Terminal-F I think.Thank you.


    Your flight to Detroit probably will not depart from F. Where are you flying in from? If you are flying out of Terminal F it is connected to the other terminals by a shuttle bus inside security.

    What procedures need I go through? depart LONDON HEATHROW arrive SEATTLE - Depart SEATTLE - AIR ALASKA to SPOKANE. I have almost 2 hours in which to complete this. Y


    You will arrive in the S Satellite, go through US Immigration, collect your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk. Then you will go through security and take the underground trains to your departure concourse.

    Yes, in philadelphia you will arrive in Terminal A, go through US Immigration, then claim your bags, go through Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then you will go through security and to your departure gate.

  • 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?
    Feb 15, 2015
    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.


  • Meeting point - most obvious, easiest to find

  • 55 Minute layover between flights in Summer

    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.
