  • Connecting AA flight from Cayman with BA flight
    Mar 28, 2017

    Hi iim arriving from Cayman on AA connecting to a BA flight to London - I have 90 mins is that enough time

     

    No, that is not enough time. Cayman Airways flights are on virtually the opposite side of the airport from BA. You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, take your bags across the airport, re-check them with BA, and go through security.

     

    Sorry, I didn't realize you were flying AA FROM the Cayman Islands. In that case you do have a chance but it is still a VERY difficult connection.

    Hi, I arrive in Miami at Gate E9 and have connecting flight 1hr later that departs D47. Will I need to reclear security? Is this enough time?

     

    sorry, both flights are on AA

     

    All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is a walkway between D and E inside security. You should have enough time.

     

  • Pittsburgh (PIT) to MIA, then to Costa Rica (SJO)

    I'm flying from Pittsburgh (PIT) to MIA, then from MIA out of the country to Costa Rica (SJO) on May 27. I have yet to book my flight, but there are layovers ranging from 1 hr 20 mins to 3-4 hrs. I've never flown out of the country before; what's the minimum time my layover should be in order to get through customs etc? Is 1 hr & 20 mins too short? Not sure how big the airport is

     

    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. If both flights are on American and on the same reservation then 1 hr 20 mins is possible. All you have to do in Miami on the way to Costa Rica is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

    Thanks very much

    Is this enough time for this connection? Is it possible after passport and security checks to transfer to the AA terminal/gate without having to go through further security checks?

     

    You are outside security after you go through US Immigration and Customs. You then have to re-check your bags at the re-check desk and go through security to get to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

     

  • Connection in MIami 2:40 min from Havana

    Im planning to travel from havana to Providencials (Turks and Caicos), on American airlines For some odd reason its almost 200 USD cheaper to book each flight separately (Havana-Miami) thrn (Miami-Providencials) which means ill have a 2:40 minutes transit in Miami, my questions are - if i book both tickets separately will i be able to checking for the second flight from havana? -if not this means ill have to go through passport control, take my luggage and recheckin? - would 2hrs 40 min be enough for such a long process? Thanks in advance for the advice

     

    You may or may not be able to check in for the second flight in Havana. Regardless of whether you are able to check in for it or not, you will have to go through US Immigration and Customs in Miami. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Hi, we land at Miami from LHR on a BA flight at 15.00 we then need to connect to an AA flight to Orlando departing at 17.05. Should we have enough time?

     

    That's just enough time if everything goes perfectly.

    I am arriving from Buenos Aires at 4:45pm on Aerolineas Argentinas airline. My domestic flight leave at 7:15pm with AA. Is that enough time for my connection? Thanks!

     

    That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

    I have 45 minutes to connect from a domestic AA flight to an international flight on XL Airways to Paris. I will not be checking bags. Is it possible to make that connection in 45 minutes?

     

    No, that is not possible.

    I will be returning home from St Croix on 3/27 via AA with 53 minute layover in Miami. Is that enough time for my connecting flight. Both flights are with AA. I have never flown into Miami and I hate connecting flights because they stress me out lol! Help!

     

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

    i AM TRAVELING LHR-MIA SJU WITH BRITISH AIRWAYS HOW MUCH TIME DO I NEED FOR TRANSIT TO GET MY FLIGHT MIA-SJU. AND IS IT AN EASY PROCESS. NOT BEEN TO MIAMI BEFORE

     

    You 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. You need at least 2 hours.

    I'm flying from Havana to Las Vegas and making a stop in Miami. Can I exit Miami airport during my connection time? Is it allowed?

     

    Yes, once you clear US Customs in Miami you will be in the US and free to go where you want.

     

  • Cayman - Curacao via Miami - different airlines, checked baggage
    Mar 13, 2017

    I'm flying from Grand Cayman to Miami (I can choose either AA arriving 9.25am, or Cayman Airways arriving 9.40am), and then Miami to Curacao (on AA departing 11.17am). The cost is much cheaper if I do the first leg on Cayman Airways but I am worried about my checked baggage. Would Cayman Airways be able to check the bag through from Cayman the whole way to Curacao, without me having to pick it up in Miami? And would the connection time/process be the same in Miami, regardless of which airline I choose for the first leg?

     

    No, Cayman Airways would not be able to check your bags through to American and you'd have to claim them to go through US Customs. If you did it all on one booking on American that's possible but still somewhat risky. Otherwise it wouldn't be possible.

    we arrive on April15th at 3:15 pm with Austrian from Vienna (OS97) and we have connection with AA to Quito (AA939) at 5:40pm. Do we have to check out our luggage and if yes, is there a possibility to get through security and check in at a fast lane? we are afraid of not getting to our Terminal in time. thanks for your answer.

     

    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags with American, and go through security. There is no priority lanes in the US for people with short connections. You have just enough time if everything goes perfectly.

    I am flying United out of Miami, how can I access the priority pass lounges or the centurion lounge prior to my flight leaving?

     

    You can't. Terminal G that United uses is not connected inside security to any other terminals.
