  • Panama City - Miami (1.5 hrs) - Chicago
    May 4, 2015

    Hi all, I'm planning on booking a flight with AA from Panama City to Chicago. There is a 1.5 hr stopover in Miami, I'm not sure if I'll have to go through security / or take off my bag and put it on again etc, could anyone let me know the procedure and if this is enough time? (I'm a UK citizen if that makes a difference).

     

    Yes, you will arrive in Miami, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. 1.5 hours is barely enough time assuming everything goes smoothly.

     

  • AA domestic to Lan-best route?
    May 1, 2015

    We travel tomorrow from Vegas to MIA on AA landing in D, then fly Lan to EZE. What is the fastest way to get from D gates to J? And we will need to get Lan tix at a counter. We're TSA pre but I don't know if Lan has that info for when they give us our tix-advice on navigating the airport appreciated! we have abt 2 hours.

     

    That will be tough if your first flight is late at all. You basically have to walk from D to J and you will probably have to bring your bags with you because it sounds like you have two separate tickets.

     

    thanks for the quick response! So do we land in D, and take moving walkways to H where we tickt for Lan? We only have carry on and are flying in biz on LAN if that might help...

    What are the arrival / departure concourse for American A and Eagle coming from Colombia With connection flight to Chicago?

     

    Both flights will likely be on Concourse D - however, in between you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, and go through security.

    Hi. We're flying back from Managua to LAX with AAA tomorrow with lay over of 2 hours. We have to go through immigration. Is it enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

     

  • From Trinidad to Seattle

    Hi, Good day I will be flying from Port-of-Spain to Seattle, however I have two stops first stop is at miami with layover 1hour and 36 mins and then to Los Angeles with lay over of 1hour and 17 mins. Will 1 hour and 36 mins be enough to connect to the miami flight. All my flights are with American Airlines, do they transfer our luggage? or do we have to get our luggages after immigration check ? I am really worried since i cant cancel or change my flight options. Thank you.

     

    In Miami you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate 1 hr 36 minutes should be barely enough time. If your flight from POS is late they can rebook you to Seattle either on the nonstop flight in the Evening or through a different hub, such as Chicago or Dallas.

    Hi, We are travelling from Newark to Marsh Harbour Bahamas - via MIA in AA. What exit requirements are there at MIA for MHH? Is this sufficient time?

     

    There are no exit requirements. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All AA gates at MIA are connected inside security. You will show your passport when you board the flight and will go through Bahamanian immigration when you get to Marsh Harbour.

     

  • Is 50 min connection time enough?

    I booked an AA flight from San Francisco to La Paz, Bolivia with a connection in Miami. When I booked the flight, the connection time was 2 hours and 30 mins but now AA just emailed me with a change and connection time is now only 50 minutes. I am very worry. Is this enough to change plane from domestics flight to International flight? Even if we can make it, how about our bags? Please advice.

     

    All you have to do in Miami on your way to Bolivia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You and your bags should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

  • Connecting Flight at MIA 1h40

    I booked on the AA website a flight for the 30th July from Rome (FCO) to Santiago del Chile (SCL) with two flight connections, the first in Madrid (MAD) and the second one in Miami (MIA). MAD-MIA is operated in code sharing by Iberia, MIA-SCL is operate by AA. By the time I booked the flight, the connection time in MIA was 2hours and 20 minutes, so I thought it was enough. Today AA sent me an email with a schedule change, and the connection time in Miami will be 1 hour and 50 minutes. Is it enough in your opinion?can I reach quickly the AA's terminal from the Iberia's one? Will I have to claim the baggage and pass from the custom?what can I do if I lose the connection? The 30th July will be Thursday and I will arrive at MIA at 7.55 PM and should leave at 9.45 PM. Thank you very much!!

     

    1 Hr 50 minutes is probably still OK. You will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security, but since you are on an International to International connection you should not have to claim your baggage in Miami. If you miss your connection you will spend the night in Miami and be booked on the flight to Santiago the next evening.

     

    Thank you!!If I miss the connection will I have to pay something (flight of the day after to Santiago, hotel in Miami) or does AA usually offer that to those who miss a connection of a flight booked all with AA?

     

    You will be rebooked without extra charge but will probably have to pay for you own hotel.

     

  • Short connection montego bay - miami- aruba

    When traveling on April 13th from montego bay to Aruba via MIA with layover time of 1hr 46 min (departing 17.30 to Aruba) I wonder if I will have enough time to make my connection? Both flights are booked on AA, doen in the same reservation and confirmed by AA? Can I ask at check in at montego bay to label my bags direcly to Aruba. If yes do I have to go through customs and security with my bags or are my bags automatically loaded to my departing flight like the process in Europe? Thank you for your advise

     

    Yes, since you are on an international to international connection you should not have to claim your bags in Miami. However, confirm that with agents in Montego Bay and Miami. You will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security though.

    We are flying MEM-MIA-SJO next week. Only have a 45 minute connecting time for MIA-SJO and now I'm worried that we are starting our family trip off on a scary note. I just called and it seems that arrival and departure are different terminals :( First leg is American Eagle and second is AA. Is this going to be a nightmare situation?

     

    All AA gates at Miami are connected inside security. All you have to do in Miami is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If your flight from Memphis is on-time you'll have enough time.

     

  • JFK->MIA->LIberia,CR

    Hi I am flying in from JFK to Liberia, CR with a 1hr33min layover in Miami. Is this enough time for a connection? Since the connecting flight will be international, I am worried it will be in a different terminal and there will not be enough time to transfer bags. Using American Airlines.

     

    All American flights at MIA are in the same terminal and connected inside security. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Miami on your way to Costa Rica.

    Hi, we are flying from LHR to MCO with a 1hr 35min connection time in MIA (arrive at MIA at 7:45pm). I know that we have to clear immigration and customs and then re-check our bags and clear security again....is this enough time??

     

    That is likely barely enough time.

     

    I have booked same flights for summer, how did you get on in Miami? some people say you must clear customs etc but others say you just walk from one flight to another and clear customs in orlando. Thank you

    Hi, In August I will be travelling to Domincan Republic from London Heathrow with 2 connections in Philladelphia and Miami. The transfer times are 1hr 55 for PHL and 2.5 hrs in Miami. Is this enough time in each? Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be enough time for both. In Philadelphia you will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. In Miami all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • LHR-MIA-San Jose / Costa Rica

    Will I have enough time to connect flights? Details of both flights connecting in Miami are ... Outbound I arrive in Miami from LHR BA flight at 14:55 - then going on to San Jose departing 18:56. Going back from San Jose arrive at Miami at 18.12 and flight to London 20.40. Is this too tight and will bags be checked right through? Thank you!

     

    You have plenty of time on your way to San Jose but not much coming back. Your bags will be tagged through to your final destination both ways. You should not have to claim them to go through Customs in Miami because you are on an International to International connection but confirm that with agents in London, San Jose, and Miami.
