  • Processing time between plane landing and exiting terminal.
    May 19, 2014

    We are arriving at 0635 form Melbourne and need to connect for an amtrak train that leaves union station at 1010. We were taking the Flyaway bus but need to be on the 8.30 bus. Can this be done.

     

    You should definitely be able to make the 8:30 bus. You will likely be out of customs by 7:15.

     

  • Connecting from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2

    Arriving 6/14 @1:25 p.m. on AirItalia into Terminal 1 and connecting with Delta flight @ 3:32 p.m. out of Terminal 2. Is this doable?

     

    Yes it is doable but leaves very little time for any delays

     

    I had the terminals backwards. Will arrive on Airitalia (Delta Codeshare) in Terminal 1 and will depart on Delta from Terminal 2. What is the best way to get from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2?

     

    The only way between Terminal 1 and 2 is via the AirTrain, which runs outside security, but you will be outside security anyway after clearing customs from your Alitalia flight.

     

  • Transfer from FRA to YYC

    I'm travelling on UA from FRA to YYC via ORD - do I have to clear customs in ORD or will my baggage go through to YYC?

     

    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, then you can re-check your baggage. Then you will take the ATS Train from T5 to T1, go through security, and to your departure gate.

    I'm arriving from JFK on Iberia at Terminal 4 and I'm meeting with a friend who's coming from CDG on Air France at Terminal 2. How do I go from T4 to T2 - are they near each other ? I believe that each would have a different immigration facility . Pls help and thanks.

    Situation 1- Arrive at SEA from YVR via Alaska Airlines with 2 hours and 33 mins to connect to Delta flight to ICN. Not sure whether to have checked bags or not. Situation 2- Arrive at SEA from ICN via Delta with 1 hour and 15 mins to connect to another Delta flight to YVR. Is this enough time, do I have to claim checked bags and re-check them again? Situation 3- Arrive at SEA from ICN via Delta with 1 hour and 55 mins to connect to Alaska Airlines to YVR. Enough connecting time? Have to claim checked bags? Thanks

     

  • Elderly Parents 1 hour connection

    My parents both in their 80's Parkinson's and dementia have a 1 hour connection in CLT to Newark NJ. Past experiences have not been very good with the reliability of wheelchair and people movers. Do you think a 1hour connection is not enough time to catch their flight? They are not frequent travelers and need TLC...how can we be sure they will be taken care of.

     

    CLT is a fairly easy airport and they won't have to go through any security. But if you're worried book a longer connection.

     

  • ? about coming off for a layover
    May 13, 2014

    I am going to be flying Delta 5133 from YHZ-LGA for a 21/2 hour layover then catching Delta 1485 to go to MCO, do I have to pick my luggage up and go through security again or do they automatically transfer my luggage to delta 1485

     

    Delta should automatically transfer your luggage. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Halifax. All you have to do in LGA is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will not have to go through security.

     

    Thank you for the information:)

     

  • Clearing Customs - Cozumel to DFW to LAX
    May 10, 2014

    I'm flying back from Cozumel with a 2 hour layover in DFW, will that be enough time to make my connecting flight to LAX? I'll arrive DFW at 8PM on Sun, Jul 6th and I'm concerned since it's a holiday weekend (although late evening) that 2 hours may not be enough time?

     

    On arrival at DFW you need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance, then re-check-n your bags & get to your connecting domestic terminal. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

     

  • Connecting from Hawaiian to US Air

    Need to get from Hawaiian(Terminal 3) to US Air(Terminal 4); claim baggage and re-check in at US Air. Arrive 10 pm Depart 11:59 pm. Do we have enough time? Tips?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your hawaiian flight is on-time. You can check-in online for your US Airways flight before you leave Hawaii.

    I will be arriving at 2:20 pm, July 17, from Vienna on Austrian Air. My next flight is United to Charlotte at 4:50 pm. I will have a checked bag. Is this enough tiime? What will be the procedure? Thanks!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will clear US Immigration in the International Arrivals Building, then claim your baggage, go through US Customs, then re-check your bag with United as it should already be tagged through to Charlotte. You will then follow the signs to the departures area, go through security and then to your departure gate on concourse A, C, or D via the mobile lounge or aerotrain.

  • Transferring Planes at CDG

    Arriving from Detroit at 2E transferring planes to Athens at 2F. Do I need to go thru customs again. Can I walk to next terminal--how long to walk. How do I get there. Have 1 hr 50 min. to accomplish.

     

    At CDG , T2E has a new pedestrian path to T2F - no customs needed.

     

  • How do I connect with another party?

    My friend and I are both flying internationally to JFK: She from Canada, Me from central asis. We fly in within 2 hours of each other to different terminals. We need to meet up as we are attending the same conference in NY. She flys into terminal 8 and I fly into 1. We will both have to go through customs etc. Where is a good place to meet at the airport after we have each gotten our luggage and taken care of immagration? I will have to wait for her for a couple of hours, so the more comfortable the better.

     

    If she is flying from Canada she will probably pre-clear US Immigration in Canada, not in JFK. Try to meet her in the baggage claim level of her arrival terminal.
