  • Delta Connections from Boston to Norfolk with 35 min connection time
    Feb 2, 2016
    Hi, I'm flying down to Norfolk in April and my connection on Delta is through LGA, but I only have 35 mins between flights. Because the first leg is Delta and the second leg is Delta Connections Endeavor Air and I can't figure out of both are same terminal or if one is in C and the other is in D, if I'm going to have enough time. Does any one have any information? My original flight was changed on my by the airline so I can change it once without any fees, should I make the change or safe with this connection? Thanks for your help!


    35 minutes is enough time if the first flight is on-time, but it leaves no time to spare if it's delayed (which is common at LGA). I personally would try to change it for a longer connection if your schedule allows). If you do stick with this connection or end up with a different connection over LGA, terminals C and D are connected inside security by a walkway.


  • Terminal B to D
    Dec 18, 2015
    Hi! I'll arrive on terminal B and I've 2 hours for the next flight which is going to be on Terminal D. I've checked bags. Do you think I can make it? I'm open to get a cab between terminals.


    You can't take a cab between terminals. You have to take the Route A or Route B bus (Route B is faster as it doesn't go to Terminal A, which is practically on the other side of the airport).


    Also, I think you have enough time as long as your first flight is on-time and your bags come out quickly. Obviously if you can manage without checked bags that would make this a lot easier.


    I know you can walk between terminals on the second floor. Is it feasible time speaking? How do I pay the bus?


    You cannot walk from B to D inside. You can walk from C to D. The Inter-terminal bus routes are free.


  • Terminal

    I am arriving terminal d but want to meet friends at term b - is there a shuttle after I get my luggage ? Also where in terminal b is the best place to meet my friends - perhaps luggage area?


    Yes, the Route A or Route B bus on the lower level will take you from Terminal D to B. Yes, the baggage claim would be a good place to meet them, however, note that Terminal B has a few baggage claim areas that aren't actually connected to each other inside (you have to go out to the curbfront and then into the next one).


  • Getting from Terminal B to C in 40 minutes
    Nov 6, 2015
    I have a 40 minute delay at LGA and have to change airlines. How can I get from B to C the quickest wihtout having to go outside and go through security again?


    You can't go from B to C inside security unless both of your flights are on American. You will have to take the Route A or Route B bus or walk and go through security.


    Is this possible to do in a very short amount of time?


    40 minutes would be really pushing it from a reasonability standpoint. It's theoretically possible, but by no means easy.


  • Walk from Terminal D to Terminal C
    Oct 22, 2015
    How long does it take to walk from terminal D to terminal c?


    5-10 minutes. They are connected inside security by a walkway.


  • Changing Terminal B to C
    Nov 6, 2015
    I am flying from Toronto (YYZ) to New York (LGA). I am flying on the same airline and baggage will be checked through. I will also have pre-cleared customs in Toronto. Will my 1 hour 4 minute layover be sufficient to travel between Terminal B and Terminal C?


    That should be enough time. Assuming both flights are on American that should be enough time. They run a shuttle bus between B and C inside security.


    Yes, they are on American. That is awesome. Thank you for your help!


    Where do I get this inside security shuttle bus?


    It is located near the American gates in each terminal. Ask an American employee for help if you can't find it.


  • Traveling from Terminal B to Terminal D
    Oct 18, 2015
    What is the best way to go from Terminal B to D? Is 1 hour sufficient including getting through security? Thank you in advance!


    That's enough time if everything goes absolutely perfectly and you don't have a checked bag. I wouldn't try it.


  • Delta to Southwest Connection
    Dec 29, 2015
    Is 1:45 enough time to connect from a Delta flight in Terminal D to Southwest in Terminal B?


    Without checked bags, barely. With checked bags, no.


  • Changing Terminals
    Dec 23, 2014
    How do I get from Terminal C to B? Is it easy? Can I do it after I get baggage at C so that I can meet someone at B?


    Yes, the Route A or Route B bus on the lower level curbfront will take you there, it is right outside baggage claim.


  • WestJet Toronto arr. TD to Virgin American TB C6
    Dec 22, 2014
    Hi! I'm arriving at terminal D from Toronto WestJet flight to take a flight on Virgin America to DAL from terminal B gate C6. I have 1hr 45 min. What is my best option for getting from TB to TD? I am a Nexus flyer so can pass through security quickly. I guess I will have to get luggage and then check luggage since it's a different airline...suggestions?!


    Shuttle route A or B will take you from Terminal D to Terminal B. They run outside security along the curbfront. Yes, WestJet and Virgin America do not have an interline agreement so you will have to collect your bags from Westjet and re-check them with Virgin America. NEXUS does now allow you to use faster security lines, however, security lines at LGA TB are generally short. You have barely enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • American international connection in 50min?
    Dec 16, 2014
    I've got a 50min connection time between arriving from RDU and leaving for YYZ - both flights on American. I know American uses Terminal B, but I'm not sure which concourses I'll be in/out of. If it's worst-case and I have to clear security between concourses, is 50min enough time to make my connection?


    Yes, that is enough time, security lines at LGA in Terminal B tend to be short. LGA can be delay-prone though.


  • Walk indoors between terminal C and D?
    Nov 30, 2014
    I'm trying to get from Terminal C (US Airways) to parking lot P5 on the other side of Terminal D. Is there a way to stay indoors as long as possible during inclement weather? In particular, is there an indoor connection between Terminal C and D?


    Yes, there is.


  • Connecting flights
    Nov 19, 2014
    Coming from SYR and arriving in LGA at 7:15, would it be possible to make the connection at 8:10, both flights on Delta?


    Yes that is plenty of time.


  • Arriving gate D8 and Meeting someone
    Oct 28, 2014
    My friend and I both fly into LGA I arrive via Amer Airlines at gate D8 and she arrive via Delta from Indy at gate C29. Where should we meet ?


    You should meet in the baggage claim of your terminal. She can take a curbside shuttle bus there from the Delta terminal.


  • Connecting times YUL-LGA; LGA-BOS
    Oct 11, 2014
    Arriving from YUL (Canada) to LGA at 08:45, then need to get to 10:00 flight LGA-BOS. Both on Delta in First. No bags, but I assume we need to go through immigration and then security again. Is there a fast track way to do this. I see that Delta shuttle moves to C31&32 on Nov 1st, and we travel on Nov 1st which should help. Have we enough time? Any tips please?


    OK, got the answer now - pre-clearance at YUL will relieve us of the pleasure of standing in the immigration line at LGA. Connection should not be an issue, excepting any flight delays.
