  • LAX Layover
    Mar 22, 2014
    1
    I'm currently scheduled to be on a Virgin Australia flight arriving in LAX at 6:30 am. Will I have time to make it to the United terminal after going through customs and immigration for a 9:10 am flight?

     

    That should be enough time.

     

  • 2.5 hours to change | Terminal A West to Terminal F | Can I make it?

    Hi, I am arriving in PHL from London on BA67 at 16.10hrs. I have a domestic connection flight to Roanoke on AA4840 at 1845. This gives men about 2.5 hrs. I think I arrive in Terminal A West, while my connection is in Terminal F. I am not a US citizen. Will I be able to make it to my connection flight? Do I have to check out and check in my baggages again?

     

    Yes, when you go through immigration you will then claim your bags and go through US customs. Then you will be able to re-check them at the re-check desk. Note that your flight to Roanoke will be operated by US Airways (it probably won't be all called American by the time of your flight). Then you will go through security and take a shuttle bus to Terminal F. You should have enough time.

     

    You have sufficient time for transfer. On arrival at Terminal A West you will go through passport check, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance & re-check-in your bag. A big U.S. Airways shuttle bus will take you from Gate A1 to gate F14 inside security.

    Such great info! I thought I might as well chime in. Nothing was ever lost by asking the question, so here goes. Ok Mr. Guru: Wife and I have 644pm Jet blue arrival on a March Wednesday (Term. 5) heading for a British Airways 1030pm departure to Heathrow (Term. 7). Based on some of the posts; I'm beginning to think that 3 hours to collect bags & clear customs & then security over in terminal 7 is not as big a cushion as I originally envisaged? Would you comment and what are your suggestions? Also for our return we have a little under a 4 hour window (B.A. arrival @ 350pm) until our leg back to Florida (730pm JetBlue). How long have the customs/immigration transit times in terminal 7 on Sunday afternoons in April generally been running? Will this therefore be enough time? Thank you.

     

    Both of those connection times should be more than sufficient

    Does anyone know if there were delays at LAS on Sunday, March 16 (yesterday). Was told there were problems at the airport which resulted in missed flights. Did anyone have any or know of any problems? Thank you.

    Hi We are arriving from MSP to LAX with Delta then need to transfer to Terminal ? for Air New Zealand flight to AKL. is ANZ terminal 2 and what is the best way to get there

     

    You can walk or take the shuttle bus. It's a bit of a walk. Please note that Air New Zealand will be moving from T2 to the TBIT soon, so be sure to check if they have moved by the time of your flight. If they have already moved to the TBIT before your flight, I would definitely recommend walking.

    Am flying DB7342 from Harlington and NEED ASSISTANCE at IAH to connect to my flight to Chicago. Only have 30 minutes to make it and an electric cart.

     

    You need to contact United (the operating carrier) and request wheelchair assistance.

    I will arriving @ LAX @11: 20am from china and going to Dallas on 6/26/14 13:20 pm. American Airline.Do I have enough time?

     

    1. All international arrivals need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance & re-check-in their bags. Most likely you will arrive in the International TBIT (or TB) Terminal - depending on your incoming airline. A new connector gets you to after customs clearance to Terminal 4, which is American Airline's Terminal. Your transfer time is sufficient.

     

  • Arriving with a dog in cabin
    Mar 13, 2014

    Does anyone know the procedure to follow when you arrive with a dog in cabin? Is there a specific customs officer or department that I need to see upon arrival? We arrive on a wednesday at 7.55pm so its after the main quarantine office closes, but they said they deal with commercial outgoing flights only, so I'm not sure where we are supposed to go or what we are supposed to do upon arrival.

     

    CDG has a special site for this: open http://www.aeroportsdeparis.fr/ADP/en-GB/Passagers/Procedure-practical-information/Need-help/passenger-travelling-with-pet/ If you can't open directly, open: http://www.aeroportsdeparis.fr/ADP/en-GB/Passagers/home, then click on Formalities, on 'Passenger traveling with a pet'.

    Hi ! I'm leaving from Knoxville with delta to detroit and then going back home to Ottawa. The flight is june 29th pm. They changed flights hour and we have now a 32 minutes connection, do you think it's possible to make it ? It's the only flight of the day

     

    Yes if your first flight is on time its enough time. Both flights will likely be on the same concourse.

     

  • Luggage

    I am making a connection in Atlanta for my international flight (Costa Rica), do I have to claim my luggage and then check it in again ? I'm hoping that my luggage is going direct to Costa Rica from Syracuse where I originated.

     

    No. On your way to Costa RCA you don't have to do anything with your baggage in Atlanta. Only on your return will you have to claim it in immigration.

     

    Hi thanks for your quick response.. my next question is regarding your reply.. you said that on my return to Atlanta I have to claim my luggage in the immigration? Even though my final destination is Syracuse? From Costa Rica I am connecting my next flight in Atlanta to Syracuse. So in other words I have to go through the immigration, claim my luggage then check it in again to my next flight to Syracuse? I'm sorry for all this question but I just want to really clarify so I'm not going to be lost in transit ;o) Thanks much!

     

    Yes you have the return procedure correct. You need to claim bags to go through US customs.

    are there services I could hire to retrieve a dog from international cargo and hold it until my flight arrives (about 7 hours later)

    How much time should I plan for the security lines in Termainal 3

     

    It depends on the time of day - the morning maybe 15-20 minutes, but I went in the afternoon a few weeks ago and there was no line. T3 is much less congested than T1.

     

  • 44 minute layout enough time?

    will 45 minute layover be enough time to get to connecting flight on time? flying in to DTW from JFK on Delta 2942 and fly out from DTW to Shanghai on Delta 583. thank you

     

    You arrive & depart from the McNamara Terminal. 45 mins is tight - & depends on how far apart your connecting gate is. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/dtw, click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the 'McNamara Terminal' details.

     

    Both of your flights will be in the A concourse. If you get in on-time you should have plenty of time for your connection.
