    Flying from Lima Peru on LAT arriving at 7:45 a.m. on Sunday. Will have to go through customs and immigration. I have a 10:10 a.m. flight to Chicago, will that be enough time? Do I have to leave security and go back through?

     

  • Connecting Flight Miami to Cancun

    Coming from Portugal with TAP will arrive at Miami 03:10 PM terminal 1. After proceeding from Us Customs Passport Control and collect Bagage will get the AA flight to Cancun Schedule to 06:20 at terminal 3. According to my previous experiences Miami is quite busy and waiting time on line to Us Customs clearance too long. Once I will manage to obtain electronic chek-in, 3 hrs time between flights are enought ?? How in advance do I have to chek bagage at AA counter ???

     

    You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will have to have your bags checked with AA by 5:20.

     

  • Miami to London (100 minutes connection) is it enough?

    I am travelling with my family, US passport, to London from Quito to London, the issue is only 100 minutes for connection, is it enough?

     

    Both Flights are in American Airlines, connection in Miami

     

    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security.

    I fly into Miami on Delta and my flight to Orlando is on American. Do I need to go to baggage claim to get my bag and go to departures to check in and go back through security?

     

    Yes, you do. You'll want at least 2.5 hours between flights.

    Hello, I will be landing in MIA from Toronto with American Airlines at 9:57am on a Tuesday. I then have to connect to another American Airlines flight due to leave at 11:21am. Is this layover of less than 1.5 hours enough? And, will my luggage be transferred from one flight to the other or will I have to claim and recheck it?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Miami on your way to Caracas is just walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    American Airline just sent me a notice that the domestic flight I have a reservation on has had a time change. I am connecting on AA to Liima Peru. Is this enough time?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Miami on your way to Lima is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I am arriving into MIA airport at 4:28 am from Ecuador and have a connecting flight to CLT at 6:30 am. Is 2 hours enough time to go through customs and recheck my bags? All flights are through AA.

     

    Since you are arriving extremely early in the morning, that should be enough time.

     

  • LA to Miami to South America

    The entire itinerary will be on American. When traveling from LAX to Buenos Aires with a stop in Miami, is a 2 hour layover long enough? Similarly, how long do I need on the Buenos Aired to Miami to Los Angeles layover? I know it's longer than outboard because of customs and things. Thanks!

     

    Yes, on your way to Buenos Aires all you have to do in Miami is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate - you have plenty of time. On the way back I'd want at least 2 hours, preferably a little more.

    I'm flying to Miami from Atlanta and will land at 8:54 AM. My next flight is to the Grand Cayman Islands at 9:44 AM. This is my first time at the Miami airport. Can you please provide any tips or suggestions?

     

    FYI, I'm flying American Airlines

     

    All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All AA gates are connected inside security. You have enough time if your flight from Atlanta is on-time.

    We are Canadians landing in Fort Lauderdale, taxi to Miami, taking a direct flight Miami to New Orleans arriving at Miami airport 2PM AA flight to new Orleans leaves at 3.30pm as they moved up the flight time, will we have enough time, as we are seniors and need some help

     

    No, that is impossible. You need to get a refund from the airline that changed your flight and book something else.

    Hello, Im planning to take AA from Grand Cayman arriving at 10.34am and connecting onto AA to Belize city at 12.20pm. I would like to know if I have enough connection time? Is it thru the same terminal and also would I have to re checking my bags. My travel agent said I need a minimum of 2 hours and that Miami has been really busy lately. thanks In advance

     

    Yes, 2 hours is about right. You should not have to claim and re-check your bags since it is an International to International connection all on AA. This will be a bit difficult if your flight from Grand Cayman doesn't arrive a little early.

     

    Thanks for the reply! So if my flight does reach on time I will have to make a run for it then! Do you know if I have to change terminals? All I have to do is immigration and security again right?

     

    Both flights should be in the same terminal. All you have to do is OneStop Immigration and Customs and then go through security.

    We are planning to flight to Miama at 2:36 PM from RDU via AA, to catch LATAM international flight at 4:40 PM to Lima, do we have enough time to connect? thanks

     

    That should be enough time if both flights are on the same reservation and your flight from RDU is on-time.

     

  • Connection to MEX

    Hello! I will be flying from MAN-MIA with Thomas Cook and need to book a connection through to MEX. The flight lands in Miami at 16.35, assuming there are no delays would it be doable to leave MIA on the 18.50 flight with American Airlines? I'm not sure which terminal I would arrive into and leave from and if this would be enough time. There is a flight later on with Interjet but it's a fair bit more expensive. Thank you!

     

    No, that would not be realistically possible considering it's two separate reservations from an International arrival in two separate terminals on opposite sides of the airport.

     

    Ok thank you I thought that'd be the case. I'm facing a similar situation with the return leg of the journey from MEX-MIA with AA before connecting through to MAN with Thomas Cook. The flight from MIA-MAN is at 18.35, would it be doable to arrive into MIA from MEX at 15.27 or would it be better to arrive at 10.29? Thanks again.

     

    The 15:27 arrival is probably doable but leaves very little time to spare.

     

  • Family Global Entry Interviews MIA Connection

    Hi We are a family of four - two adults two teens flying STX-MIA arriving on AA at 12:58 pm connecting to DFW on AA at 3:50. There are Global Entry interview times available every 15 minutes starting at our arrival time and running through 2:45. Given the logistics of deplaning, exiting and re-entering security, do we have enough time to do the GE interviews during this layover? If so, I'm guessing that I should book the first one for 1:45? I'm trying to avoid waiting until October and possibly having to pull the kids out of school to get it done at DFW. Thanks!

     

    Yes, I think 1:45 would work.

    Hello... please, I am bit lost. I will arrive in MIA at 11:20am and I'll have an international flight to catch at 3pm and I am afraid I won't make it. Do you think it is enough time to get the bags, going again trough immigration, changing the gates... I would really appreciate the help.

     

    Where are you flying into MIA from? What airlines are you flying? You haven't provided enough information to answer your question.
