  • Walk between terminals
    Feb 16, 2016
    Can I walk from terminal D to terminal B and how long will it take


    It's possible to do outdoors on the lower level, but it's not easy. I suggest if you're trying to go as fast as you can that the Route A or Route B bus is probably faster than walking. But if you have plenty of time and want some fresh(?) air then you could do that.


  • Connection between B and C
    Feb 15, 2016
    I fly into B and out of C on American. I have 50 minutes between flights. Do I have enough time and do I have to re-clear through security?


    American has a shuttle bus inside security. Even then you have barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.




  • Toronto to NYC - short layover to catch flight to Kansas City
    Feb 15, 2016
    Hello! I just have a quick question about something that really got me anxious once I realized! I am travelling from Toronto to NYC and getting there at 14:00 and then I have another flight to catch (connecting flight) at 15:00. The first one is on Terminal D the other on terminal B. I will have to pass through security check and wanted to see how feasible it will be to make it on time given that I am an international tourist. Do i need to cancel my flight and get a new one with more layover time? This got me really stressed out!


    What airlines are you flying?




    Westjet doesn't fly to Kansas City. What airline are you flying to Kansas City?


    Its operated by Westjet but possibly a partner airline: Gojet airlines DBA DELTA


    Then you do not have to go to Terminal B. You will arrive in Terminal D and depart from Terminal C or D. C and D are connected inside security by a walkway. You have enough time as long as your Westjet flight is on-time.


  • 45 minute connections Delta
    Feb 11, 2016
    I have reservations on Delta for the end of May. Since the trip was scheduled far in advance, I was not surprised to receive a schedule change. I am flying from GSO to LGA and then onto Boston. The new schedule only has a 45 minute connection. Is this too tight for LGA?


    This is possible. All Delta gates at LGA are connected inside security. LGA is delay-prone, however Delta also has hourly flights from LGA to BOS that are rarely full.


    Thanks so much for the info.


  • 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
    Nov 30, 2015
    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.
