  • Transfer time?
    Jun 16, 2016
    Hello. We booked a flight on Airberlin arriving Boston july 12th, 3:30pm, terminal E. Then going on with Jetblu Terminal C, leaving 5:55pm. We have to check in Baggage at Jetblu Service, baggage can't be checked through they say. We are German, so have to go through immigration as foreigners. Do you think time schedule fits? Thanks for help!


    It's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • 1hr 1min Layover to intl?
    Jun 13, 2016
    Will a 1hr 1min Layover work to go from AA to Norwegian with rechecking bags & Changing terminals if I have to?


    it's @ FLL not BOS.


    With checked bags, no way, that's totally not enough time. Even with checked bags I would say it's probably not enough time.


  • Is 1hr 46min Enough Time? CLT - BOS - KEF - CDG
    Jun 13, 2016
    Is 1hr 46min Layover enough time in BOS to change to the international terminal? Where will I do Customs in the US or Iceland?


    There is no US Customs when exiting the US. You have barely enough time if you have no checked bags. With checked bags I don't think this is possible. You will have to go through security again in Terminal E.


    I Not Sure if I will Have Checked Bags yet. It is all On the Same Ticket I won't Have to do anything with my bags right?


    If you have checked bags and the flights are on two separate reservations you will have to claim your bags in Boston, take them to Terminal E and re-check them.


    It's On The Same Reservation


    OK, then you should have just enough time to change terminals and go through security. You won't have to do anything with your bags.




  • Boston to Iceland 2hr connection
    Jun 11, 2016
    Flying in to Boston with Delta (from LAX) and need to catch a separate flight with WOW air to Iceland which is terminal E. Need to get bags and go through customs and TSA. Is 2hrs from landing to departure enough time?


    You don't need to go through Customs, there is no US Customs when leaving the US. 2 Hours is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.


    Thank you. Would you pay 7,000 extra miles for 30minutes more inbetween the flights? Worth the risk in Genral? The next flight to Iceland leaves the next day....


    I don't think it's worth 30 minutes.


  • Flying overseas and customs

    Leaving out of Boston to Istanbul. How much time do I need between flights. Checking in 1-2 bags.


    There's no US Customs when leaving the US. However, if you're booking a separate ticket into Boston, I'd want about 3 hours in between when that flight arrives and the Turkish flight is scheduled to leave.


    Ok, so I am flying into Boston from another city. Im this case should have three hours in between flights? Also, what about customs coming back into Boston from Turkey before having to get on my flight back home?


    Yes, 3 hour should be enough time on the way to Istanbul. On the return I'd want at least 3 hours.


  • international flight enough time to catch connecting flight
    Jun 7, 2016
    My son has a international flight on Friday the 17th of june arrives BOS at 3:30pm on Eurowing which is Lufthansa. I can purchase flight on southwest departing at 5:50pm is that enough time to connect with bags.


    I would personally want a later flight, but it's not downright impossible.


  • Will I have enough time?
    Jun 6, 2016
    I will be arriving in Boston at 12:18pm on Delta on July4th - my connection is scheduled to leave at 2:00pm on United. The flights were booked on separate itineraries, will I have enough time? If not, is there anything I can do (aside from change flights) to make things more feasible?


    I do have 1 checked bag as well


    It's not impossible but it's certainly not easy. You'll have to hope your delta flight is on-time and your bag comes out quickly, run to the United check-in desk in Terminal B, check your bags, and go through security. If you can do your trip without a checked bag that would save a bit of time.


  • Tight connection?
    Jun 6, 2016
    We are arriving at Logan on JetBlue at 7:21pm. We leave on Icelandair at 8:45 pm. According to the answer to another post, we will have to go through security again. Is there enough time?


    Yes, that should be just enough time as long as your JetBlue flight is on-time and your bags are checked through to IcelandAir.


  • Terminal E to C, 13 hours connection time
    Jun 5, 2016
    I am flying with turkish airlines and arrive to BOS terminal E at 6:15 pm. My next flight is next day, 7:45 am with jetblue from terminal C. I am travelling with my son and I have 4 bags. The tickets are booked together, but I will have to check out and take my luggage at terminal E. Can I re-check at terminal E? Isn't it too much connection time for a re-check? If not, can I walk with a luggage cart from one terminal to another?


    Yes, you will be able to drop your bags at the re-check desk in Terminal E, then walk or take the shuttle to Terminal C and go through security. You should just have enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Thanks a lot!


    Sorry, I just missed how long your connection is - because it is overnight you likely won't be able to re-check your bags until the morning, probably about 4:30. I suggest getting a hotel.


    OK, but do you know anything about carts? Can I move with a luggage cart from terminal E to terminal C?


  • Customs and security check
    Jun 4, 2016
    I am arriving to Boston on JetBlue at 7pm. I have a connecting flight on Iceland air at 8:45pm. Do I have to collect my luggage and go through security again? If so, is this enough time.


    If both tickets are on the same reservation you don't have to claim your bags but you will have to go through security again in Terminal E.


  • Connection from Rome to Mpls through Boston
    Jun 4, 2016
    My Daughter and I will be flying in from Rome on August 4th. We get in at 6:40pm and will then fly to Minneapolis at 8:55pm. Is that enough time to go through customs and immigration. We plan on doing carryon luggage only.


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • International to domestic connection
    May 30, 2016
    Arriving from London on Norweigan Air @ 7:05pm on 7/11. Having trouble finding a late flight to Atlanta. Would 8:25 pm departure be enough time to get through customs and from terminal E through security in terminal A (no checked bags)? Thanks!


    No, that wouldn't be enough time. If there are no later flights and you have already booked that flight to Boston, plan on spending the night in Boston.


  • Conection form domestoic to international
    May 30, 2016
    I have flight from Vineyard arrive in Boston Lagon at 3pm and connection flight to Internasional flight to Amsterdam at 7pm, is that enough time ? And should i take my luggage or can be direct check in ?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will have to claim your bags from your first airline, take them to your second airline, and re-check them.


  • INternational flight to BOS, connection to Ottawa

    I will be arriving from Doha terminal E and then I have a connection to Ottawa by Air Canada. Do i need to pick my luggages after immigration and then drop it for my onward flight. And is connection time 3 hrs should be ok?


    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, change terminals, re-check your bags, and go through security. You should have enough time.
