    I'm flying from Montreal to Washington with a connection at Laguardia. I'll be flying into Terminal B with American Airlines and flying out via terminal C with US Airways. I have only less than an hour between connections. First of all, will my bag be checked through all the way? Secondly, how long should it take to travel between terminals and is there a shuttle bus or other means of transport?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal and your bags will be checked through to Washington. US Airways/American are operating a shuttle bus inside security between their gates in Terminal B and C. Ask the agents when you arrive how to find it.


    Thank you!


    Yes, thank you, I have the reverse sequence to this tomorrow, and have no concept of the LGA layout. Glad to know there's a shuttle inside security.

    How do I get from Delta to the AMEX Lounge and how long does it take?


    What airport?


    LaGuardia. I have a two and a half hour connection (Delta to Delta) and want to go to the American Express Centurion Lounge in terminal B. I know it is outside security. Can I walk between Terminal B and C/D to get to the lounge and back


    No, it's not walkable. There's a shuttle bus, but you'd have to leave the lounge like an hour before your flight to get back to C or D in-time, so that would leave you like maybe an hour in the lounge.

    Is there a shuttle that can take you from Terminal D to Terminal B at Laguardia? Greatly appreciated!


    There is a shuttle that runs on the lower level outside security - The Route A or Route B bus.


    Thank you kindly!

    I'm flying YUL to LGA viz air Canada and then LGA to ORD via united. Will my checked bags be transferred automatically?


    If you purchased your tickets together your bags will be transferred automatically. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal.

    My first flight from DCA to LGA is with US Airways and arrives in Terminal C. I have 42 minutes to get to my LGA-YUL flight with American Airlines in Terminal B. How do I do this and will I make it? If I check a bag at DCA, will it be transferred to my second flight?


    Yes, your bag will be transferred. US Airways/American are running a shuttle inside security between US Airways' gates in Terminal C and American's gates in Terminal B. Ask US Airways agents in LGA upon arrival how to find it.


    Thanks so much!

    It depends on the terminal. For the most part LGA doesn't have many features.


    Flying delta so I think terminal c and d


    C and D are a little better than A or B.

    I'm flying into LGA on saturday and I have a 55 minute layover. My flight is on US Airways for both, though my flight in is operated by Envoy Air/American Eagle. I know this is a tight connection and was looking for advice on the best way to get between the two terminals.


    US Airways/American operates a shuttle bus inside security between their gates in Terminal C and their gates in Terminal B


  • Is 35 minutes for a layover pushing it too close?
    May 4, 2015
    Flying GSO - LGA - YUL (Greensboro - New York - Montreal) and have only a 35 minute layover in LGA. Is this cutting it too close even if I'm flying Delta on both flights.


    It's possible if the first flight is on-time, but it depends on the first flight being on-time and delays at LGA in the summer are unfortunately very common.


    How about in November?


    November is one of the better months.


  • 1hr 14 min connection
    May 2, 2015
    Hi - Before I book this flight I wanted to ask if I will have enough time to connect. Flight is from Fort Myers to LGA via Delta, the next flight is 1 hr 14 min also Delta but operated by WestJet. I am not sure if we will have to go to a different terminal? No checked bagged only carry on. Thanks


    You will arrive in Terminal C or D and depart from Terminal D. C and D are connected by a walkway inside security. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

  • 55 minute connection
    Apr 5, 2015
    Hi - trying to evaluate whether 55 minutes is enough time for this connection before I book it online. Flying from Miami at 5:05pm (American Airlines 1053) to LAGUARDIA ... connecting with American Airlines 3696 ... 55 minutes later. Not sure what terminals. Is this realistic ... how about with checked luggage or just carry on.


    Flight from Miami is on May 7 (a thursday).


    Oh ... and it is 3 of us, each with a single ticket showing the connected flights. Holding Canadian passports wondering if we'd have to go through security


    That should be enough time. You may have to go through security if you arrive at a different concourse of Terminal B than you will depart from. However, security lines in Terminal B at LaGuardia are generally pretty short. You should have enough time if your flight from Miami is on-time.


  • Terminal C to B
    Apr 14, 2015
    I just flew into Terminal C on US Airways on 3/30 and needed to connect for American at Terminal B. There IS a shuttle within the secured area that transfers all American and US Airways passengers. I find it extremely odd that this is quite unknown, and even American agents don't know when you call them.




    How did you locate/find this shuttle? Flying in tomorrow and need to go from Terminal B to C in 55 minutes. Any advice would be much appreciated.


    They should have someone meeting you right after you get off the plane. If not, make sure you ask someone before you leave the secure area.


  • Need info on terminals
    Mar 29, 2015
    This is my first time flying with a toddler and I need all the info I can get! We are arriving in terminal b with a connecting flight in terminal c with a 1.5 hr layover. If I ask for assistance could someone help us to the next terminal? Would we have to wait for our checked bags or are they transferred for us? If I have a stroller is it easier to walk between terminals or should we take the shuttle? Any tips? I have severe anxiety so I am looking for any info that could make this flight less stressful!


    Did you purchase your tickets separately or together and what airline or airlines are you flying? I can't answer your question without this info. There is no way to walk between Terminals B and C.


    I bought them together. I bought them on us airways website. I'm flying into lga on American airlines and flying out on us airways.


    Your baggage will be transferred for you. American also now operates a shuttle bus inside the secure area between the American gates in Terminal B and the US Airways in Terminal C. Unfortunately they have decided not to tell either of their websites about it but it exists. If you can't find it, you can take the Route B bus outside security, but you will have to go through security again in Terminal C. You have plenty of time.


  • Terminal C to B
    Mar 26, 2015
    I have a 54 minute layover on 3/30, and I have to go from Terminal C to Terminal B (US Airways or American). I am on the TSA Approved list meaning I can go through the shorter line. What are your thoughts on making this connection?


    That should be barely possible. There is word that American is running a shuttle bus on the secure side of the airport, so that would mean that you may not have to go through security.
