    Flying on United from ky to Boston with one reservation, then separate reservation for flight on aer lingus from Boston to Dublin. Gave myself a long layover and not checking a bag- if I use mobile boarding passes will I have to go out and back through security between terminals? It's the same route on the return as well


    Yes, you will still have to exit security and go through it again for your Aer Lingus flight as United's Terminal B is not connected to any others inside security.


  • Travelling from CLE -> BOS -> DOH -> BOM
    Sep 4, 2016
    I am travelling from Cleveland to Mumbai Inida. I have connecting flight at BOS. I will arrive in BOS at 9 and have flight to Doha. The flight is arriving at terminal C and departure is from terminal E. The reservation is on the same ticket for all the flights. Do I need to collect and check in bags again in the BOS? Do I need to go through security checks again in BOS? How long it will take to go from terminal C to E? Thanks


    Arriving BOS at 9 pm and have flight to Doha at 10:55 pm.


    No, you don't have to do anything with your bags in Boston. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is a walkway inside security from C to E inside security.


  • Recheck baggage?

    Traveling from Chicago to Madrid with layover in Boston. Do I pick up my bags then recheck them in BOS?


    What airlines are you flying? Are your tickets on one reservation or two separate reservations?


  • Enough time for connection?
    Sep 2, 2016
    I have a flight from DOH to BOS arriving at 14:30 (Terminal E) and another from BOS to YYZ departing 16:25 (Terminal B). Both flights on the same ticket, I have one checked bag and am a Canadian citizen. Is the 1:55 enough for the connection?


    That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Thanks. By far and away, this is the most helpful airport site on the web.


    Great. Would you say it would be enough time to purchase something from the same terminal as my flight to YYZ?


    It really depends if your flight from Doha arrives early or not and if the immigration lines are long or not.


  • SNN to BOS to ATL (checked luggage, separate reservation
    Sep 1, 2016
    My wife and I are flying from SNN to BOS. We have almost exactly a two hour layover. We then will have to get our checked luggage and recheck with Delta on a seperate reservation for our flight to ATL. We will have cleared customs in SNN. Enough time? This is a wonderful site. Thanks!


    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Is this enough time?
    Aug 31, 2016
    What is the easiest way to get from Terminal A to Terminal E? We have 2 hrs 40 mins to get off plane, collect luggage and get to Terminal E and re-check-in. Can we take a bus? Is there someone to help us get the luggage on the bus?


    There is a bus - there is nobody to help you load your bags onto the bus. Don't pack more baggage than you can carry.


  • Three hours international to domestic
    Sep 1, 2016
    I have two separate flights, one international flight + one domestic flight. The first one is from Hong Kong to Boston w/ Japan Airlines, while the other is from Boston to Burlington (VT) w/ American Airlines. I am a non-US citizen, and have baggage that needs to be collected then re-checked in. My first flight arrives at 5:52am, and I plan to book a domestic flight that leaves at 9am. Will I make it, and any advice or reminders? Thank you.


    American does not fly from Boston to Burlington. Please double check your reservation.


    Thank you for getting back to me. There is, the flight I saw with American Airlines flies from Boston to Philadelphia, then from Philadelphia to Burlington (Republic Airlines operating as American Airlines.) In addition to this clarification, I would like to ask again if the transit time between the separate flights is sufficient.

    You can walk or you can take a shuttle bus. (I would walk)


  • Cape Air Flight Change
    Aug 31, 2016
    Hi, my Cape Air flight has now been put back 35 minutes and I now arrive in Boston at 13:20 and have to try to catch my United flight to Newark at 15:05. Will I still have enough time to change terminals and check in luggage ?


    Yes, that should still be just enough time if the Cape Air flight arrives on-time.


    Thanks ZAP, appreciate your help.


  • are Term A and B connected behind security?
    Aug 29, 2016
    I have a flight out f term A. Friends are in term B. Will I be able to get to term B to say a quick hello/goodbye without going through security twice? (will they even let me into term B if my ticket is for a flight on term A?)


    No, you cannot. They are not connected inside security.


  • Will I make my connecting flight?
    Aug 29, 2016
    Hi, I am arriving at Boston from an international flight from Panama. The flight however has a leg in Newark so I assume I will be arriving in a domestic terminal (don't know which one). I have a flight from a different company at 21.35 to London Heathrow. I need to pick my bags, recheck them and go through security. Do you think I will have enough time? Thanks!


    I don't know. When does your flight arrive in Boston?


  • how do I get from terminal B (united) to terminal C gate 27
    Aug 29, 2016
    I will arrive into Terminal B on United and need to depart from Terminal C gate 27 arriving at 5:17 and departing at 6:05 - is that enough time and where do I go?


    I think that will be very difficult. Do you have checked bags? What airline are you flying out of Terminal C?


  • Do I have enough time?
    Aug 24, 2016
    Hi there I will arriving Boston Logan Terminal E (international) morning 8:00 AM I have domestic flight from Terminal A at 9:30 AM. Do I have enough time when I need to go thorough Immigration (not a US citizen), collect my bag ( 4 bags) re check in go through security and get to terminal A. I will be with my wife and two kids. Would I have enough time to catch my domestic flight at 9:30 AM? Would Appreciate the advise...Thank You!


    That is not enough time. On two separate reservations with checked bags you need at least 2.5 hours.


    Thank you for saving me from last minute stress... I will make sure I have more than 2.5 h


  • Terminal C to Terminal E
    Aug 23, 2016
    Hello, My flight arrives to Terminal C and my next flight departs from Terminal E. We only have 1.5 hours between flights. Will we need to go through security again to access Terminal E?


    What airlines are you flying? Are your flights on the same reservation? There is now a walkway inside security between C and E.


    I'm flying Icelandair but the first flight is on their partner JetBlue. it is the same reservation. Thanks for the walkway info!


    Then you should be able to just walk to your departure gate in Terminal E.

    Hi, I posted about my flights from Rome to Baltimore last night. I was able to change my EasyJet flight so I depart the day before, spend the night in Paris, and then fly out to Reykjavik the following day to avoid any possibility of getting stranded in Paris. From there, the only issue is Boston. Should I go through the hassle and pay the change fees, or should I stick with my flights as they are now and hope for the best in Boston? What do you think are my chances of making the Boston connection? Does Icelandair have a good on-time reputation? Thanks


    I do have checked bags.


    It's still a very difficult connection in Boston. However, it's not worth paying a change fee as the walkup fare on BOS-BWI on JetBlue, Soutwest, and JetBlue isn't that much. So you can just buy a ticket then if you miss your connection - or you can take Amtrak.
