  • Connecting flight from Terminal C to Terminal B
    Aug 31, 2015
    I am flying from Boston on US Air arriving in Terminal C and have to leave 1 hour later out of Terminal B on American Eagle. I am not checking bags. Can I walk between terminals? If not. How do I get to Terminal B upon arrival. Thank you


    It is not feasible to walk between Terminals. US Airways/American operate a shuttle bus inside security between their flights in C and their flights in B. You have enough time if your flight from BOS is on-time.


  • Arriving AA terminal C at 3:32pm; departing United terminal B 4:30
    Aug 24, 2015
    What is the bestest/fastest way to get from AA Terminal C to United Terminal B? We have an 58 minutes. We are flying from LGA to YOW.


    United doesn't fly from LGA to YOW. If you are actually flying American on both legs, but flying into C and out of B, American has a free shuttle bus inside security, but you will have to hurry.


  • Meeting a friend on a different airline
    Aug 23, 2015
    I am arriving on a Virgin flight and meeting a friend on an American flight..... Are these in the same terminal.


    All Virgin America flights and most American flights use Terminal B. Some American flights previously operated by US Airways use Terminal C (flights to/from Boston, Washington-Reagan, Philadelphia, and Charlotte).


  • How to find gate #
    Aug 21, 2015
    Arriving Term D, departing Term C, 30 m in connection time... how do I find out the arrival gate # and Departure gate # in advance so I know exactly where I need to go....assuming they don't get changed at the last minute?


    Your arrival gate won't matter because as an international arrival, you all have to go the same place, to immigration. You can find out your departure gate from United.com the day of your flight.


    Sorry, disregard that, I thought you were posting a question about Houston. Your gates will be available on Delta.com the day of your flight. Terminals C and D are connected inside security by a walkway.


  • distance between terminal c and d
    Aug 17, 2015
    I'm arriving on delta at 6:47 pm tomorrow in terminal c for a connecting delta flight in terminal d. There is only 45 minutes between arrival and departure. Is this enough to get from terminal c to d?


    It's possible. They're connected inside security by a pedestrian bridge.


  • Arrival / departure
    Aug 11, 2015
    Hi ! I am flying in from Charlotte on terminal D and I have a connecting flight in 2 hours from terminal B. I do have check in baggages and would have to go through security , would this work out ? Or should I change my flight departing terminal B ?


    What airlines are you flying and where are you flying on the second flight? Were your tickets purchased on the same reservation?


    I am flying from Charlotte via Delta and then flying American Airlines to Detroit (from terminal B). The tickets are purchased under separate reservations.


    Can u help me out with this asap ?


    2 hours with checked bags is difficult but possible. You will have to claim your bags and take the Route A or Route B bus along the curbfront to Terminal B, re-check your bags and go through security. If you can do it without checking bags I highly recommend it.


  • How long does it take the USair/AA shuttle to go between terminals?
    Aug 5, 2015
    My flight arrives in terminal C and my connecting flight is 40 minutes afterwards in Terminal B. I realize there is a shuttle but no one has indicated where the shuttle is (closeby?) what type of shutte (tram/bus) and how long it takes to go from terminal C to terminal b. I'm assuming since I booked this on AA that they believe you can make the connection (providing the stars are aligned). Help...


    It's more like a van and it runs inside security. The AA/US employees can show you how to find it.


  • Flying into Terinal C (from BOS) and connecting to Terminal B (YUL)
    Jul 17, 2015
    I'm flying into Terminal C from Boston on US Airways at 7:26pm and my connecting flight to Montreal (YUL) leaves at 8:05pm from Terminal B (American Airlines). Will I have enough time to make it? Can I run from Terminal C to Terminal B? Is their a train / shuttle? Do I have to clear security again? I'm stressed.... THanks for you help.


    US Airways and American now both use Terminal B.


    Thanks. But my boarding passes say that I land in C and take my connecting flight to B.


    Are you sure you don't mean your reservation? Computer reservations issued by travel agencies are frequently wrong.


    also check at airport gates change constantly I have a flight changing from American to USair too showing a terminal change also glad to hear there is a shuttle beyond sercurity or that both airlines use same terminal now


    Oh, I'm sorry, I thought you were connecting in Boston, not LaGuardia. US Airways/American have a shuttle bus that connects their gates in C and their gates in B at LaGuardia.


  • Flying into and out of differnet Terminals
    Jul 13, 2015
    I am Flying out of Terminal B on United and back into Terminal C on US Airways is there a shuttle bus that can take me to the parking Garage or do I need to use the US shuttle back to Terminal B? How late do the shuttle buses run?


    Yes, the Route A and Route B shuttles run outside security between terminals, but they run in a D-C-B-A order (Route A) and D-C-B order (Route B).


  • Connecting Between C & B
    Jul 6, 2015
    I am going to be arriving in to gate C39 and then my next flight departs out of C3 (in terminal B). I have seen on here that American/US Airways operate a shuttle between the two, does that mean I will not need to go through security again? When looking at their terminal map in their website it almost appears terminal B requires you to go through security again if you change letters. Since the shuttle drops off by the D gates will I have to go through security to get to gate C3? I am only asking as I am traveling with a 3 year old and 10 month old and will want to prepare for the security check if necessary. Thanks!


    Correct, the US Airways/AA shuttle operates inside security. The shuttle goes to both C and D gates in Terminal B.

    I'm flying into terminal c from PHL; then on to terminal B for a connecting flight to ATL. How long will it take me to get from terminal B to terminal C. I'll have 60 minutes if, my flight is on time.


    US Airways and American are currently running a shuttle bus between their gates in Terminals B and C. If your first flight is on-time you can make it. Just ask employees when you land how to find the shuttle bus.


    Thank you!


  • Appropriate Timing
    Jun 12, 2015
    Hi, I am an international student. I have to catch a flight (Delta DL 4930) on 5th Aug, 2015 at 14.30 for Raleigh from La Guardia Airport. Actually, I will reach at JFK on that day at 9.00. I have no detailed idea on the local transportation over there. So, my questions are following: 1. What will be time before which I should leave JFK airport? 2. What is the most easily available type of transportation in between JFK and La Guardia? How much time will it to reach La Guardia? 3. What will be the time limit before I should enter La Guardia (including checking and all) ? I am in urgent need to know the details of the timing. Please help me out with it.


    The easiest way between JFK and LaGuardia is a taxi. It costs about $30 and will take about 35-45 minutes at that time of the morning. You have plenty of time. I recommend trying to get to LaGuardia at least 70 minutes before your flight.


  • 35m layover
    Jun 11, 2015
    35 minute layover from ATL to YUL, with the 35 minutes being in LGA. Is that long enough? All flights are Delta.


    It's enough time if you run and your first flight is on-time. All Delta gates at LGA are connected inside security. It really depends on the flight from Atlanta arriving on-time.


  • 2h 28m layover in LGA on International
    Jun 10, 2015
    I have another flight next November near Thanksgiving from Greensboro (GSO) to Montreal (YUL) on Delta that has a 2 hour, 28 minute layover in New York (LGA). I think I'm pretty safe with that amount of time, but again it is from New York to Montreal which is (obviously) considered international. Is that enough time? Flight from LGA to YUL is late morning.


    Yes, that is plenty of time. There's nothing special about the LGA-YUL flight other than that you go through Canadian Immigration at the end of it. All Delta gates at LGA are connected inside security.

    I am travelling from Buffalo to Boston changing at La Guardia. I need to get from Terminal D to Terminal C. If everything is on time there are 36 mins between arrival and departure. Is this enough time


    Yes, that is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly. C and D are connected inside security by a walkway.


    Thank you
