Return Flight in August from Cancun to Newcastle via Miami and Heathrow. Booked flights via BA who advise they will be linked. Flight AA 1285 into Miami gives us 2 hours 40 minutes layover before flight BA1529 to Heathrow. Will this give us plenty of time especially if we have to recheck baggage? Inbound flight gives us 3 hours layover in Miami. BA tell me I won't need to recheck baggage but I'm sceptical.
Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, you will have to claim and re-check bags.
We are looking at booking a return flight on American from Managua, Nicaragua, through Miami. Our layover is 1 hour and 40 minutes. Arrival time is 5:40 pm on a Saturday. Is this enough time to go through customs (2 checked bags) and make the American connecting flight to Denver?
That is just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Hello, I have a flight coming in from Santiago and connecting in Miami to head to New Orleans. The layover is 3 hours. I was planning on seeing some family nearby. But my flight to MSY leaves at 3:45. How long does customs usually take on average?
I bought two one way tickets. First ticket is from ATL to MIA on Delta. The next ticket is from MIA to STX on American Airlines. Can I walk from Concourse H to Concourse D without going through TSA again. I will have a carry on. Can I check in at the counter at my gate?
No, you can't. Check in online. But you will have to leave security anyway.
I am getting a connecting flight from MIA to MANAGUA and have checked baggage, flying with Iberia, will I have to collect the luggage and check in again for the next flight? Never done this connection before and not sure how it all works?
Iberia doesn't fly from London to Miami. Is your London-Miami flight operated by British Airways or United?
I found a great price to fly from Dublin to Manaus all with American Airlines. The itinerary is Dublin-JFK-MIA-MAO. There is only a 1hr layover in Miami. Is that enough time considering the following:
Dublin is one of the only non-US airports where US customs pre-clearance is possible so I will not have to go through customs in JFK. My bags will be checked through all the way to Manaus. Therefore I will not (I assume) have to go through customs in Miami nor check in bags so would 1 hour be enough?
Yes, 1 hour is enough. You are correct. Both in JFK and Miami all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi I am flying american from Santiago to Orlando through Miami. I arrive at 04:45 and take off around 07:10 on a sunday morning. I have the mobile passport app for customs and immigration. Will this be enough time for me to get through there and tsa to get to my flight? Thanks in advance
Sorry forgot to mention i have one checked bag
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly. The very early morning arrival helps.
I am travelling from Medellin, Colombia through Miami. The Avianca flight arrives in Miami at 1:49 pm and the Delta flight departs at 3:40 pm. I will be carrying luggage but still have to go through Immigration and Customs. Is that enough time? From other posts it may not be?
With carry on bags that should be barely enough time if everything goes smoothly. Check in online for your Delta flight before leaving Colombia.
