I am flying with BA London to MIA and then
Miami to Orlando with AA all on a single booking. BA have allowed 1 hour 45 minutes between flights. Is this enough time to clear customs, baggage reclaim and make the Orlando flight?
It's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
We are flying from London via Miami to Belize with American Airlines. Do we have to recheck our gold baggage?
No, you should not since it is an International to International connection all on American over Miami. You will go through US Immigration, Customs, and security.
Thankyou, that's a relief as we only have 2 hours. My husband has wheelchair assistance so they should help us get through quickly
I am flying with American from Guadeloupe arrival into Miami at 1814. There is a connection to Cancun, also with American, departing Miami at 1945. Can American interline the baggage through to Cancun and is 1.5hrs enough time to connect
Yes, your bags will go straight through because it's an International to International connection all on American. However, you will go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security.
Quick one for the MIA specialists. I am arriving on SK (Scandinavian) from OSL at concourse H. Connection to AA to Havana. Separate tix and the connection time is 1 hour 25 minutes. Is it at all doable? I am in Business on the arriving flight so will be first off the plane and I have only carry-on luggage...
With carry-on luggage and Business class, I won't say it's completely impossible as I was about to say. But it's still EXTREMELY difficult.
I understand that and I have a "plan B" in case of misconnect. But am I right in that i would:
-Clear immigration in the H/J pier right after exiting the SAS-plane.
-Head landside to the D-terminal by foot.
-Clear security at the D-terminal.
-Head to the AA-gate.

I guess I can skip checking in with AA at MIA as I will be able to OLCI and print the BP before entering the first segment of the journey (SAS).
Yes, you have that procedure correct.
We fly BA to Miami then AA to Grand Cayman, all arranged by BA. They have allowed us 3 hours on the way out but only 2 hours on the return. Is this enough time? Also do we have to collect luggage at Miami? Thanks
On the way there, that is sufficient. On the way back it's more difficult. Yes, you will likely have to claim your bags to take them through US Customs both ways.
Hi I'm flying from LAX to CDG via MIA. I only have a 1 hr connection. Will that be enough?
Yes, if both flights are on American that is enough time.
I will depart MIA at 3:30 PM on AA but my cruise arrives very early so I have a 5 hour wait and I would like to use the VIP Lounge in Terminal J. Do I have to go thru security at Term D and then walk to Term J or will they let me go through security at Term J with an AA ticket? How long a walk is it between J and D? I want to avoid the skytrain since it is not airside.
There's no guarantee you will be allowed through security in J and J and D are not connected inside security.
Hello there, so I'm flying with LATAM from UIO - MIA arriving at 13.30 ,do have one checked luggage, then flying with TUIFLY to Brussels departing at 16.05 would have to clear customs and re check my luggage. Would it be enough time?
That's just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
I have a flight from STL to MIA and then a 1 hour 51 min layover to a flight to Madrid. They are different airlines. Will I have enough time for (1) gate change (2) luggage transfer and (3) customs?
What airlines are you flying? There is no US customs when leaving the US.
Hello,
I am flying American Airlines from London Heathrow to Miami and then on to Montego Bay, Jamaica. I have just under two hours to make my connecting flight, have the airline given me enough time?
Thanks in advance.
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
