  • Spirit Air terminal to Delta terminal
    Apr 6, 2016
    How do I get from terminal B to terminal C or D? I have a 1 1/2 hour layover. Is that enough time? Do I have to go through security again?


    Take the Route B Bus. You have barely enough time without checked bags assuming your Spirit flight is on-time (which they often are not). You will have to go through security again in Terminal C or D.

    I'm looking at getting a flight that connects in LGA with a 1 hour 8 minute layover, coming from CAE final destination is Buffalo, is that enough time and is it a simple enough connection?


    Both flights on Delta? Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Delta Terminal C to Air Canada Terminal B
    Mar 25, 2016
    Hi, I'm getting to LGA on delta on TErminal C and have a connection at terminal B on Air canada. Do I have to go through security again and can I do it in less than 45 minutes?


    Yes, you will have to go through security again. No, I don't think you can do it in less than 45 minutes.


  • American transfer terminal B to C
    Mar 18, 2016
    Hi. I am transfering from terminal B to terminal C, both flights on American. It sounds like there is shuttle bus I can take and avoid having to go through security again. Is that correct? Where do I board the bus in terminal B and where does it leave me in terminal C? Thanks


    I should add I land at terminal B concourse C. Thanks


    Yes, there is a shuttle bus. There are temporary signs. If you can't find it ask an AA employee.


  • Connection flight
    Mar 29, 2016
    I'm a Nervous flyer and I have a question. I'm arriving at Terminal D from Toronto switching to another plane at Terminal D to Nashville. The layover is over 55 minutes, is this enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.


    are you flying with WestJet? I have a similar layover (1h9min) and I'm nervous it won't be enough time


  • connexion from Terminal B to Terminal A
    Mar 14, 2016
    I'll arrive at terminal B and i need to pick up somebody arriving a little bit later at terminal A. How can i get that? Walking? airport facilities between terminals? thanks


    You can't walk to A from the other Terminals. you have to take the Route A bus. Are you really sure they're arriving in A though? Only the Delta Shuttle flights from Chicago and Washington DC arrive there.


    Yes, i'm sure, this person is coming from Chicago. Is the route A bus free, if don't, what's the fare? thanks again!


    Yes, the Route A bus is free and runs on the lower level.


  • 33 Min layover
    Mar 14, 2016
    Hi, Will I make my Delta connection with a 33 minute layover in LGA?


    It's possible, but depends on things going smoothly at LGA, which is rare.


  • quick connection flying Delta
    Mar 7, 2016
    I am planning a trip and the proposed flight gives me 56 minutes for the connection. I am unsure what terminals I will be sent to. I'm flying in from Bangor, Maine, then off to Minneapolis/St. Paul. I'm worried about such a tight connection. Thoughts?


    That should be enough time if the first flight is on-time. Flights will be in Terminal C or D, which are connected inside security by a walkway.


  • Checked Baggage with Connections
    Feb 23, 2016
    I am arriving Terminal C and departing Terminal D both on Delta. With 58 min between flights is it possible to make this? Do I need to grab my checked bags and take them to the other terminal or will delta do it for me?


    Yes, it is possible. your bags will be transferred for you. C and D are connected inside security by a walkway.


  • Arriving at 2 different terminals: how to meet up?
    Feb 22, 2016
    What is the best way or place at LGA to meet if one traveler is arriving in Terminal B and the other in Terminal D around the same time, both hoping to go into the city by taxi?


    Have the traveler arriving in Terminal D take the Route A or Route B bus to Terminal B and then take a taxi from there.


  • American airlines B-C shuttle frequency
    Feb 19, 2016
    How often does the inside security American Airlines shuttle depart for transportation between terminals B and C?


    I believe it operates more or less "as often as needed/it can" - the ramp at LGA is very congested.


  • 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
    May 23, 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.


    I am about to make almost the exact same trip. GSO to LGA then connecting to BOS with a 40 minute connection via Delta. So this is possible, no problem? Also, coming back I'm flying AA BOS to LGA then connecting to GSO with a 50 minute connection. Us this also possible? Thanks!
