  • Will I have enough time
    Dec 30, 2015

    Hello! We will be arriving from Iceland at 5:30 pm on 5/2 and would like to catch a jetblue fly at leaving at 8:10pm.. Will this give us enough time to clear customs/immigrations to catch our 8:10pm connects with jet blue? All tickets were booked separately . Thanks

     

    That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

    I am flying in from Toronto arriving at terminal B at 6:15 PM and flying out to Ireland at 9:00 PM Terminal E. Do we have to transfer our own luggage and do we need to pass through customs again

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. Were your tickets purchased on one reservation or separate ones?

     

    We are booked under one ticket

     

    Then all you have to do is go from Terminal B to Terminal E and through security. You don't have to do anything with your baggage or go through immigration or customs. You will show your passport to the Aer Lingus agent when boarding your flight to Dublin. You have plenty of time.

    if arriving at terminal C do you need to go through security again to fly out of Terminal E

     

    Yes, you do.

     

    thank you! I think that JetBlue will have checked our bags through to Ireland, via Aer Lingus, so we should have enough time.

     

  • Connecting in BOS on way to Montreal

    I am flying into Boston on Alaska Airlines to catch a flight to Montreal. I have separate tickets and a carry-on bag. Is 60 minutes enough time to make this connection, presuming the flight into Boston arrives on time?

     

    I wouldn't try it if the flights are in different terminals. What airline are you flying to Montreal? if you are able to check in online it's possible but is still pretty risky.

     

  • Will I make my domestic connection from an international flight?

    Hello. I am flying into Boston from London on a Tuesday morning in December, due to arrive at 12:24HRS (international arrivals) my connecting domestic flight to Raleigh (same airline group - Virgin/Delta) is due to depart at 14:10HRS (2:10 pm). This gives me 1 hour and 46 minutes layover. Do I actually have a chance of making this connection? Is the immigration/customs/baggage check/recheck/inter-terminal sprint doable at that time of day on a weekday by a reasonably able person? Thanks for your help, I am rather worried that I am not going to manage this one. I have to check a bag (Christmas presents). Thanks again.

     

    Yes, it is possible as long as your virgin flight is on-time. Terminal E where you arrive and Terminal A where you depart are not too far from each other.

     

  • AC/LH connection

    I am arriving on the AC flight from YUL at 7.04pm and connecting on to the LH flight to MUC departing at 8.20pm. Will I need to recheck my bags? Do I need to go through security again?

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation you won't have to do anything with your bags as you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. However, you will have to go through security again in Terminal E before your Lufthansa flight.

     

    But is that enough time? I will have to exit Terminal B, take the bus to Terminal E, go through security and then go to the gate in less than an hour.

     

    You have a little over an hour. It should be enough time if your flight from Montreal is on-time.

    Hi, I have been booked on a CapeAir flight from Albany, arriving into Boston at 3:25PM. I am also booked on the Lufthansa flight to FRA, leaving at 6:15. Is there any security to pass again while switching terminals? Any passport control? I don't have any checked bags. How punctual is CapeAir on average? Thanks alot

     

    OK, so you have more time now? Yes, you will have to get your Lufthansa boarding pass and go through security in Terminal E. There is no US Customs or passport control when leaving the US. You will show your passport to the gate agent when you board the flight. Cape Air is fairly reliable.

    I am arriving in BOS on EK on 15 Jan at 7:55 am and I have a connecting flight to SJU on Jet Blue at 9:46 am on the same date. Will it be enough time for me to catch the Jet Blue flight? And will I need to go through immigration, plus collect my luggage and check in again my luggage for the Jet Blue flight??

     

    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then transfer to Terminal C go through security and to your departure gate. You should have just enough time.

     

    Thank for your reply

    I will be arriving on Emirates ETA is 2 PM (Term E) on Wednesday Jan 13 and have a connection on a completely different reservation on Southwest, scheduled for 4:40 PM. Will that 2hr and 40 minutes be enough for immigration, customs, baggage re-check and get thru security and reach the gate for the connection?

     

    It's probably just about enough time if your Emirates flight is on-time. Note that you'll have to take your bags with you to Terminal A to re-check them with Southwest. You can't use the re-check desk in Terminal E.

     

    Thank you! I also have Global Entry and TSA-Precheck, so I hope that would cut down on time in lines.

    I will be arriving on Emirates ETA is 2 PM (Term E) on a Tuesday and have a connection on a completely different reservation on American, scheduled for 3:50 PM (Term B). Will that 1hr and 50 minutes be enough for immigration, customs, transfer to AA's terminal B, baggage re-check and get thru security and reach the gate for the connection?

     

    It will be very difficult unless your Emirates flight arrives early because you will have to transfer your bags yourself to American and get to their check-in counter before the bag check cutoff.

    my international flight is planned to arrive at 5:30am to terminal E. my connection to SFO is jetblue at terminal C at 07:00 am is this possible with checked buggage ? (reservation is together)

     

    That should be just enough time assuming your first flight is on-time.

    Hello, I have booked a flight from Atlanta to Rome through Boston. I will arrive on terminal A and I need to go to terminal E. I have just 1 hour for connection. Do you think I will make it?

     

    If you purchased two separate reservations that is not enough time. If both tickets are on the same reservation you will have to hope your first flight is on-time and run to Terminal E.

     

    Thanks a lot for the answer. Its the same reservation. Lets hope it will be on time.

     

  • Process of Transit when flying out of US

    Hi, I will be flying from Detroit to Boston Via Jetblue to catch a Flight to Dubai with Emirates. - Will I have to go through any Immigration at Detroit - Do I need to collect my baggage in Boston and get the Boarding Pass again from Emirates and go through Immigration at Boston. - How much Time I will need to complete all this process. I will be arriving at 9:00 pm and my next flight is at 10:20 pm. - What Terminal I will come and what terminal I will flyout and how to change terminals

     

    There is no US Customs or Immigration when leaving the US. If both tickets were purchased on the same reservation your bags will be checked through to Dubai and all you have to do in Boston is go from Terminal C where you arrive to Terminal E where you depart and go through security. If you purchased two separate reservations you will have to transfer your bags yourself and this will be very difficult if not impossible. You can walk from Terminal C to E in Boston.

     

    Sorry, Emirates operates from Terminal C. So assuming both tickets are on the same reservation all you have to do in Boston is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Thanks ZAP, Its seems I have one booking only Although I have 2 Booking reference numbers - Jetblue and Emirates are saperate but when I check online on Emirates I see the complete section. I also Found out that JetBlue and Emirates have codesharing in US. I guess you were correct. I will have to do the Baggage check in only Once. May be Passport control/ check will happen in Detroit itself.

     

    I just did the check in at detroit, the baggage is. He ed in for India but I need to get the boarding pass of emirates in Boston. Any clue where is emirates transfer desk at boston.

     

    Hi, i am travellinf from detroit in jetblue to india via boston in emirates. I see both flights (jet blue and emirates) operates from terminal c. Do we need to go through security checkin again at boston? And does the boarding pass will be supplied at detroit itself thru india??

    I am arriving from Frankfurt to terminal E to catch my onward flight to Ottawa from Terminal B. Have I to go through immigration? collect my baggages and recheck them at Air canada express counter? and undergo immigration again before proceeding to departure gate? thanking you in advance

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation your bags will be tagged to Ottawa. In Boston you will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk immediately after, then walk or take the shuttle to Terminal B and go through security. You will go through Canadian immigration and customs when you get to Ottawa.

    I am considering purchasing tickets for two people on Dec 30. Will be arriving at 4:08pm on Jetblue (from DFW). Taking off at 5:55pm with Wow for Iceland. We would check in online but would that be enough time to switch terminals, check a bag and go through security? If we didn't check bags or became TSA pre check, would that help? Thanks

     

    It should be enough time without checked bags. It would be difficult with checked bags.

     

    I am flying with wow soon and my research say you can not check in online!! You must go to the desk and they say the desk closes 45 min before flight. When I say close .. I mean they walk away. The reviews have been brutal about this and luggage policy
