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?
You don't really have enough time to see anybody.
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.
Hi,

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?

Thank you
Iberia doesn't fly from London to Miami. Is your London-Miami flight operated by British Airways or United?
Hi... we have a flight booked from Barbados to MIA arriving at 7:48PM connecting to Toronto on a flight departing at 910PM. we'll have luggage. Is this enough time?
What airlines? Is it two separate reservations or one reservation?
American Airlines all the way.
In that case you should have just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Flying London Heathrow to St Maarten via Miami with American Airlines. Is a 3hr 10 connection in Miami enough?
That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi,

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.
Flying JFK to MIA to London Heathrow with American Airlines. Connection time in MIA is 1hr 19 mins. Will I need to collect and rechegck luggage? Will I need to change terminals? Is this enough time? B
All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
I am traveling to Miami from Barcelona with a layover in London. I arrive in Miami at 3:00 PM. I need to get a flight to Houston from Miami. There is a 3:45 from MIA to Hou that it says is often delayed. Would I have enough time to arrive clear customs and make it to the gate?
There is absolutely no way you could make that flight. You need at least 3 hours.
Even if I have the customs app and am TSA pre checked?
