Will be flying from Iceland on WOW arriving at 5:30, need to catch a United flight at 7:18 to Houston. I won't be checking any bags and I have global entry. Also flying on a Weds, would think that would be less hectic then the weekends.
It's possible if the WOW flight is on-time and you check in online for your United flight before leaving Iceland.
Does WOW have a reputation for being on time? This is my first time flying them.
I am coming in from Frankfurt into Terminal E at 2:20pm. No checked bags and I have global entry. I need to catch a Jetblue flight from terminal C at 4:40. Do I have enoughtime ? Also, can I transit between terminals without having to clear security again? Thanks
You will have to go through Security again in Terminal C after you clear customs. With Global Entry and no checked bags you should have enough time. Check in online for your JetBlue flight before leaving Germany.
Wife and I will be arriving into Boston from Iceland on Icelandair at 6:35pm and hope to make outgoing flight to Tampa at 8:29pm on Jetblue. We are both US citizens and these would be two separately booked flights so we would have to clear Customs, grab checkin luggage from Icelandair and checkin with JetBlue for flight to Tampa. Is that even doable in just under 2 hour window?
Forgot to mention this would be Saturday evening Oct. 14
It would be really difficult. It's not impossible. If you can do it without checked bags I really recommend it.
Thanks for the info.
Just a follow up, found out that Jetblue partners with Icelandair on the KEF to TPA route through BOS so our checked luggage goes straight through from Iceland to Tampa. So we don't have to worry about dealing with chckin luggage. Only issue is getting us and any carry-on from Icelandair to Jetblue. It appears they are in adjoining terminals (E and C), so is that a fairly straightforward transfer between the international arrivals (plus Customs) and getting over to Jetblue in C? Never been in Logan so I'm not familiar how the transition from the international terminal to domestic goes. Is it fairly straight forward/intuitive or is it pretty crazy/convoluted like MIA?
And thanks for tip above. It led me to do some digging around before buying tickets and figuring out that they can be booked together and not separately.
That is incorrect. You still have to claim your bags to bring them through US Customs in Boston. You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate in C. 2 hours would be enough time.
June 6, 17 we'll be flying in from Iceland (originally from Netherlands) via Icelandic Air arriving at 6:30pm. The last flights out of BOS to GSP (South Carolina) are at 7:45. I'm not familiar with customs and such. Is it possible to make such a tight time frame? Should we even attempt to buy the 7:45pm tickets? Is there anything we can do to expedite the return customs experience? If we miss the 7:45 plane due to customs, will it be our fault or the airlines? How will this be handled?
Realistically no, that's not possible. Spend the night in Boston and fly to GSP the next morning or if you haven't already bought the ticket to Boston, get from the Netherlands to GSP a different way. If you miss your connection in Boston, it will be your fault since you booked two separate tickets.
We are US citizens flying from Toronto on Air Canada to Dublin on Aer Lingus with a 1.30 hrs Layover in Boston. We are purchasing tickets as one reservation with these 2 flights and one stop. Will we have enough time to transfer? It will be terminal B and C, but not sure if we have any customs or other things to do.
Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. All you have to do in Boston is walk to Terminal B and go through security. Note that Air Canada uses a different security checkpoint from the rest of Terminal B.
Not sure if you were clear on my info. I am concerned about our trip to Dublin from Toronto. taking Air Canada from Toronto to Boston changing planes in Boston to Aer Lingus on our way to Dublin. You mentioned preclearing immigration that would be on our way back. Also you mention security for Air Canada, why would we need to go through security if we are leaving Air Canada and going to Aer LIngus? We will be going from Terminal B to Terminal C. Please clarify.
Actually the procedure will be the same on your way to Dublin. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto and then in Boston just walk to Terminal C and go through security.
