arriving from miami on american airlines flying to halifax canada on american is 58 mjns enough time for connection
ZAP1 hr ago
Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Miami is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

Sorry, one correction. Since your flight to Halifax is operated by Westjet Encore you will have to walk to Terminal A from Terminal B and go through security. You should still have enough time, but barely.
My daughter is coming in via Aer Lingus from Dublin then is jumping on a Jet Blue flight. She will need to get her checked bag over to Jet Blue what is the best way to do that ?
ZAP4 hr ago
Both are in Terminal C. If her bags aren't checked through all she has to do is claim her bags from Aer Lingus, take them to JetBlue to check them and go through security. If it's all one reservation all she has to do is go from her arrival gate to her departure gate. She will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin.
How much time will it take to get between the two airlines? Is it walkable or faster by bus? We will have baggage and know we have to collect bags then go thru security again. Time between flights is about 1hr 50 minutes

It's walkable. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I'm flying into BOS on Southwest, arriving Terminal A at 11:25am. How much time do I need to allow to get to Terminal B for Air Canada flight to Montreal? Is 1 hour enough? Coming back, I know I'll need longer for customs. How long should I allow for transferring in reverse (Terminal B with Air Canada to Terminal A for Southwest)?
There is no US customs when leaving the US. However, you will need to claim your bags, transfer them to Air canada and re-check them, then go through security. I recommend at least 2 hours if you have checked bags and 90 minutes without.

Clarification: 1) I will not have checked bags, only carry-ons 2) How much time from Terminal A to Terminal B (leaving US) BOS to YUL? 3) How much time from Terminal B to Termina A (returning to US) YUL to BOS?

90 minutes both ways is possible, but 2 hours is preferable. As I said, the time is the same both ways as you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal when returning to the US and there is no US Customs when leaving the US (you go through Canadian immigration and customs in Montreal).
We will arrive terminal C with JetBlue from Charlotte and catch Icelandair flight to Iceland in terminal E. We have only 1.5 hours layover time and I am worried we won't have time to catch the Icelandair flight. Do we have to pass security check again from terminal C to terminal E or we can simply run to terminal E to catch the flight? Thank you.
There is a walkway inside security from C to E if your bags are checked through to Iceland.
Leaving Reykjavik (KEF) on Icelandair to arrive in Boston. Have a 3 hour 50 minute layover before flying to Pittsburgh (PIT) on Icelandair/Jet Blue. Does one need to claim luggage for customs when arriving in Boston and then check them in again at the next terminal for domestic flight to PIT?
Yes, in Boston you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, walk to Terminal C, go through security and to your departure gate.
