  • Quito to Miami to London 1 hour and 40 minutes to do so help!?
    May 20, 2016
    Land in Miami at 7:35 PM, Depart at 9:15PM to Heathrow. Ive already booked the flight. Im 17 years old and willing to run through airport. Will i make it? Do i need to collect my bags? What stages do i go through at the airpot? (First time travelling alone)


    All flights are with American airlines, I'm an irish citizen


    You will go through US Immigration, customs, and security. You barely have enough time if everything goes perfectly.


    Also you should not have to claim your bags since you are on an international to international connection through MIA on AA.


  • Transfer Time
    May 19, 2016
    Arriving MIA at 4PM from MXP on AA /terminal ? flt 207 Connecting at 7:05PM on AA to PHL/ terminal? flt 1265 Is that enough transfer time What is the walkthrough process


    You will 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 should have enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Miami TSA wait time
    May 19, 2016
    How much TSA wait time for a concourse D flight on Friday 5/20.


    Nobody can precisely predict that, especially because you didn't post the time of your flight. I recommend getting there at least 2 hours early.

    I'm arriving at Miami airport on AA207 from MXP at 3.50pm and leaving for MBJ on AA1515 at 6.08pm. Is 2 hours and 18 minutes sufficient time to catch the connecting flight? Also do I've to claim my luggage?


    Since you are making an International to International connection on AA you will not have to claim your bags but you will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security. Given the current state of security delays at major US Airports, this is a very difficult connection.


  • From terminal H to terminal D
    May 18, 2016
    Iarriving AARgentina 4 50 pm and to conect terminal D to fly 8.10 pm mineapolis is posible .?


    It will be difficult, but it's not impossible.

    I am considering a flight from DEN to NAS with a connection at MIA. Arrive at MIA at 4:46PM, Depart at 5:33PM. So 47 minutes to get from gate to gate. Incoming flight is AA, outgoing flight is operated by Republic Airlines As American Eagle. Do I need to go through customs? And are the gates in the same terminal? Obviously, more time would be better, but I'm extremely limited on options that make sense.


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time as long as your flight from Denver is on-time.


  • How much time for customs & going thru security for connecting flight?
    May 11, 2016
    I'm looking at a flight from Provo (Turks & Caicos) to Philadelphia with a connection in Miami. The time between the 2 flights is 1 1/2 hours. Is that enough time to go thru customs, claim/recheck luggage and go back thru TSA security?


    That's a legal connection, but not realistic given the current state of TSA.


  • First time Intl Flyer

    Next weekend. Arriving at MIA from BWI at 10:30a and departing MIA for SJO (San Jose Costa Rica) at 6:08p. First time traveling alone without parents. Is it far to the the connecting gate? Same terminal or different terminal? Any advice?


    Correction: Arriving in Miami at 1:12p (not 10:30a) ^^


    If both flights are on American then they are both connected inside security. You obviously have a ton of time for your connection. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thank you! Yes, both American. So, do you think I will have to go through customs?


    No, there is no US Customs when leaving the US. You will go through Costa Rican immigration and customs when you get to San Jose.


    That makes sense! Thank you ZAP.


  • Global Entry Interview
    May 7, 2016
    Hi Fling into Miami concourse d on American from Boston and then on American to Milan also concourse d. 3 hour layover. Is it possible to interview for global entry in J and return through security to make flight to Milan.If so I can schedule the interview for September.


    It's possible but doing so will make your connection a lot more stressful.


  • 1 hour international connection
    May 7, 2016
    Is 1 hour 10 minutes long enough? Do I need to go through security?Flying from ORD, arriving MIA 3:53 pm. Departing MIA to MAO (Brazil) at 5:03.


    If both flights are on AA all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • 1hour connection
    May 6, 2016
    Hi, I'm flying in from New York on Tuesday 17th and AA has changed my flight so now I've a 1 hour connection to catch my flight to Grand Cayman. Will this be enough time?


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


  • Can we make it?
    May 6, 2016
    We're flying into MIA from SEA on an American Airlines red-eye flight arriving at 8am in the North Terminal, Concourse D. We are not checking any bags. We are hoping to catch an 8:40am flight out of the South Terminal, Concourse H, to Nassau, Bahamas on BahamasAir. I have paid extra to be near the front of our American Airlines flight so we can de-plane quickly. And we will already be checked in with printed boarding passes for our BahamsAir flight. It looks like the SkyBridge is about 10minutes between the North and South Terminals. But are we going to have to go thru security again? Am i crazy to think we can make this connection? Or does it seems possible? It'll save us >$400 if we can make it. Any insight is appreciated.


    Yes, you will have to go through security again. You didn't post what time your AA flight arrives so I don't know if you have enough time.


    I know it was along post but I wrote that our AA flight arrives at 8am:)


    In that case, no, 40 minutes is not enough time to change terminals and go through security.


  • arriving w/ AA @ 619 depart AA to PHX @ 709
    May 6, 2016
    I have never been to MIA. I do not know how large the terminals are or how big the airport is. if I fly into MIA from AA and arrive at 619 do you think if I run I can make my flight at 709 (I understand they begin boarding before that time). my dad bought my flight to go see him and I am worried I will miss my connecting flight. side note- I am a Marine and a good runner :)


    Where are you flying into MIami from?


    I fly in from JAX (Jacksonville FL)


    Then yes, you can make it. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    We are novice international travelers. We fly Atkanta to Miami and have one hour to catch flight to Curacao. I've heard so many horror stories about AA thru Miami. What are our chances?


    All you have to do in Miami on your way to Curacao is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.


  • Enough time
    May 2, 2016
    we are flying into Miami and have a 56 minutes layover going to Barbados. is that enough time to make connecting flight?


    If the first flight is domestic and both flights are on AA, that is enough time.
