  • DOM to SJU to JFK - 2 hr connection time
    Aug 17, 2016
    3
    Arriving via LIAT flight from Dominica at 12:30 and have a fight with Jet Blue to JFK at 14:40. We have check in bags. Is that enough time to make that connection. Next direct flight from Jet Blue is post 7 PM so don't want to wait 7 hours at airport.

     

    Are both tickets on the same reservation or two separate reservations? If it's one reservation and the first flight is on-time it's just enough time. LIAT isn't known for its punctuality.

     

    Thank for the quick response. They are on separate reservations so we will need to clear immigration, collect luggage, check it in again, clear TSA and get back on plane.

     

    Then I think that's pretty difficult even if the LIAT flight is on-time, which is a big IF.

    Cape air flight from virgin gorda to SJU landing 2:27 pm . Can we make American airlines Flight to Phila leaving at 3:40 pm on a Sunday in February with checked bags

     

    Sorry we have carry on bags!

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation that should be enough time.

    Arrive on Spirit Air 2:10. Only have carry on bags. Need to be on Jet Blue 4:05. Are the terminals close enough to do this???

     

    San Juan technically only has one terminal (although they call them different terminals they're just concourses). You have enough time if your Spirit flight is on-time.

    Arrive SJU from JFK at 04:58PM Terminal B (Delta) and need to take next flight to Beef Island at 05:58PM Terminal D (Cape Air) with checked baggage which means 1 hour layover. Would that be enough to take the next flight and do I need to pass through the security check in again? Please advise as this would time my first time in SJU airport. Thanks very much!

     

    With checked bags that is not enough time.

    Arrive SJU 2:00 pm on Spirit with checked bag. Need to be on Jet Blue flight at 4:00 pm. Do I have enough time to get bag and check in on Jet Blue? Will I need to go through security again?

     

    Yes, you will have to go through security again after you transfer your bag from Spirit to JetBlue. This is a very difficult connection.

    My flight Departs from jfk at 6:20am with JetBlue and lands in SJU at 10:06am. My next flight leaves from SJU at 10:45am on JetBlue to Punta Cana, DR. My questions are...will I have enough time to make it to my connecting flight since it's only a 39min layover? And do I have pick up my luggage at SJU and recheck it and go through customs before boarding my connecting flight to DR? Please help, a bit nervous.

     

    ALl you have to do in San Juan is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.

     

  • Boarding passes

    My daughter is coming from EIS on Seaborne to SJU then connecting to Chicago on AA. Seaborne didn't give her boarding passes for her other flights. Can she get her boarding passes inside security? She has 2 hours there. She checked a bag and it will go all the way to her final destination.

     

    Yes, she should be able to get her AA boarding pass at the AA gate in SJU.

     

    Thanks for the info. She ended up with her bag outside of security after coming out of customs. Which was a good thing because her flight to ORD was delayed 5hrs and they put her on another flight, which she made...luckily she had tsa precheck to go back through security. She's gone through SJU 8 times now and seems like it's different each time. At least Verizon works there now. Thx

     

    Yeah, coming from the BVI, yeah she would be outside security after customs.

    I'm flying United from Ord to Stt changing planes to Cape Air in San Juan to Stt . Do I have to claim bags in San Juan? .

     

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

     

    I have the same question with the same destinations, flying in with United and flying the STT with Seaborne Air. So we have to grab our bag from baggage claim and go through security again? It was all made on one reservations. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

     

    If your ticket was booked on one reservation, you will not have to claim bags upon landing in San Juan. You will simply have to go from your United arrival gate to your Seaborne departure gate. However, beware that Seaborne may depart in a separate concourse, causing you to have to go through security anyways.

     

  • AA Concourse B to Cape Air Concourse D

    Last time we took this trip, an SJU employee directed us to go outside the airport to walk (a LONG walk) to get from concourse B to our Cape Air flight at Concourse D. We have an hour and quarter layover so time is tight this time. Do we really have to go outside or can we stay inside the concourses? Any tips to save time are appreciated. Carry-on luggage only!

     

    The indoors connection requires going through security again. I suggest you take the same route you did last time.

     

    Thank you so very much, ZAP! It's a relief to know that we're going the fastest route possible. Your reply is much appreciated!

    We are flying in today from cape air st Croix to San Juan to catch southwest flight...we have a delay in st Croix and have 2 checked bags with less than 1hr 😕

     

    With checked bags I don't think you'll make it.

     

  • tight connection b/t Southwest Airlines to Seaborne Airlines

    We have never been to SJU and have a tight connection coming up between a Southwest flight from HOU landing at SJU at 4:10pm and a departing Seaborne flight to STT that leaves at 5:10pm. We will have a carry on bag only. From reading other posts, it seems like we can stay inside security between concourse B (where Southwest operates) and concourse D (where Seaborne operates). Is it true that we can stay inside security? Also, can Seaborne airlines print our boarding pass at the SJU gate?

     

    Yes, that is true and Seaborne should be able to issue your boarding pass at the gate.

     

  • Transfer to Air Antilles flight at Christmas

    Air Antilles Flight Departs at 2:30 pm to SXM. How much time do I need for incoming flight layover with Checked Bags? My best options are 90 minutes on united and 75 minutes on Southwest

     

    I honestly would want more time than either of those.

     

    Thanks. One more. Do I need to clear security again after customs going from an SXM arrival to Southwest flight with only carry-on luggage?

    Seaborne flight from STT landing in SJU at 2:40. Then trying to catch a 3:20pm to Tampa. Carryons only. Doable? Are the airlines near each other in the SJU airport?

     

    Sorry the 3:20 flight to Tampa is with Southwest.

     

    Without checked bags this is barely possible if the Seaborne flight arrives on-time and you are already checked in online for your Southwest flight.

    South West Flight from BWI arrives SJU at 12:25pm. Planning to take 2pm LIAT flight to Dominica. Is this doable?

     

    Without checked bags you can definitely do this. With checked bags it depends on the Southwest flight being on-time and the bags coming out quickly. Also note that LIAT is fairly unreliable and unprofessional.
