  • Punta Cana-MIA-London
    Apr 30, 2016
    I have tourist USA visa and I have a connecting flight back to London at 20.45 with BA. I'll be getting to MIA from Punta Cana at 19.20 with just a hand luggage. Did I leave myself enough time to catch the London flight?


    With just hand luggage and an evening arrival you have a chance - it's still a very very difficult connection.

    i am flying Cancun to NYC via MIA. Both flights are through American airline, I have an 1h 40m in between, is this enough time? Also will have luggage.


    It's technically a legal connection, but I really recommend at least 2 hours for International to domestic connections through Miami.


  • Arrival from IST, Transit to San Juan Puerto Rico
    Apr 22, 2016
    Dear All, I will be arriving to MIA from IST via Turkish Airlines at 19:10 PM. I checked its terminal J I would like to take American Airlines flight to San Juan SJU, 21:40. When I checked , it generally departs D48 Will there be enpugh time for taking my bag and then take SJU flight? Or shall I wait 07 am flight Thanks in advance


    With checked bags and on two separate reservations I don't think you would have enough time. I would wait for the morning flight.


    JetBlue has a 2335 flight from FLL to SJU if you are willing to change airports. They also have a 0600 vs. the 0700 on AA so you would get to SJU earlier if you few JetBlue from SJU even if you waited until morning.


    Thank you for your reply and advise. FLL seems 26,8 miles away and still may have the same risk for 23:35 flight It seems its better to wait for 07 am flight:(


  • LGA - MIA Delta terminal H3 - Suriname G2
    Apr 20, 2016
    Due to equipment problems, Delta has but us on a Delta flight arriving H3 to connect to Suriname G2 to Aruba. How do I get from H to G within 60 minutes? Not at all familiar with Miami.


    You will have to exit the secure area, walk to G and go back through security. This will be difficult.


    Thanks, to update, There was no line no waiting at G, a 10 minute walk today at most.


  • 2h40 transit
    Apr 20, 2016
    Hi, I'm arriving to MIA at 4:00 pm ( AA) and leaving for Colombia at 6:40 (AA)Is it enough time to make the transit? I dont know this airport and I dont want to miss my flight nor get lost in the airport! Thanks!


    yes, that should be enough time. Where are you flying to Miami from?


    From Paris. I have a transit in Madrid.


    In that case it will be a little more difficult but should still be possible.


    Hmm and what about this: 1)leaving from Paris and arriving at Madrid at 10:15AM (IBERIA) 2°then leaving from Madrid and arriving to Miami at 3:10pm (IBERIA). And 3) finally leaving Miami (AMERICAN AIRLINES)at 6:40 pm ( 3h30 layover) Would it be enough time? Itwo different airline in Miami, what about the time to get to the departire gate? OMG this is so scary...


    Yes, I think that would be possible.

  • 2 hours layover from Kingston, Jamaica
    Apr 18, 2016
    I am flying with American Airline from Kingston KIN to Los Angeles LAX and transit through Miami. There is only a 2-hour layover in Miami. the flight will be arriving LA at 1906. I am wondering if I will have enough time to make it to my Miami-LA connecting flight with a UK passport? I have another flight to catch in LA at 2345. Do you think I will be able to make it? Thanks


    It's just enough time if everything goes smoothly in Miami.

    5 of us are coming into Miami with connection to Washington DC with a 2.5 hour layover(early evening). Is that enough time to get through security & customs for all of us (US citizens)?


    Where are you flying to Miami from? What airlines are you flying?


  • terminal connections from key west, fl to mia aa terminal to fly 2 clt
    Apr 15, 2016
    where does key west, fl flight arrive at mia airport, how do I get to american airlines flight to Charlotte, NC. Key west flight is am eagle flight. How long does it take to change terminals? any stairs? Am over 65 years old.


    You should not have to go up any stairs. All AA gates in Miami are connected inside security. It shouldn't take you more than 15 minutes to get from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you have a lot of trouble getting around you should maybe request wheelchair assistance by calling AA.


  • Time needed for layover
    Apr 13, 2016
    Hi! I am trying to choose a flight from LAX, connecting through Miami, to Grand Cayman. One option has a two hour layover and the other has a four hour layover. It has been many years since I've traveled internationally, so I don't remember the procedure for customs, etc. I would appreciate your thoughts on whether the two hour layover will be sufficient. We'll be traveling in early November, mid-week, and we are four U.S. citizens and one Australia citizen. We will be checking bags and traveling on AA. On the way to Grand Cayman, do we go through customs in both Miami and GCM? Will we need to re-check our bags in Miami? Thanks in advance! :)


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Miami is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. 2 hours is enough time.


  • domestic to international on AA
    Apr 13, 2016
    I am arriving on AA from Phila. Will one hour be enough to make my connection to an AA flight to Panama City? I will have checked baggage.


    Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • 1 hour layover!
    Jun 7, 2016
    Hi, I'm getting into miami intern at 8.45pm and connecting flight to JFK at 9.50pm, both on american airlines - carry on luggage only, will this be enough? thanks


    Where are you flying into Miami from?


    ah sorry should have mentioned, i am flying in from san deigo, so it is an internal flight


    Then yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Miami is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    I'm traveling from Newark to Bogotá Colombia with 45 minutes layover in Miami. It will be enough time???


  • Miami to Marsh Harbour
    Apr 10, 2016
    Hi, I will be travelling from Toronto to Marsh Harbour, connecting from Miami on April 29. My flight arrives at Miami airport at 9:46 am and my next flight is at 11:10 am to Marsh Harbour. Do you think I will be able to make it to my next flight on time, and I am travelling from American Airlines.


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto so all you have to do in Miami on your way to Marsh Harbour is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Connection CCS - MIA - MCO

    I will arrive to MIA from outside the country at 17:55 with American Airlines and will have to take a Delta flight that will leave at 20:08 (I'm only traveling with a carry-on). Do you think I'll have enough time?


    With carry-on only maybe if everything goes perfectly. Be prepared to either buy another ticket to Orlando or drive to Orlando.


  • transfering from delta to Insel
    Apr 6, 2016
    Thank you very much for your help. Now, I am looking at flying Delta to MIA and then transfering, with 1 hour and 20 minutes, to Insel to CUR. On the way back, we would have 3 1/2 hrs to transfer back to Delta. The return is four days before Christmas. Enough time?


    With checked bags that transfer on the way to CUR will be very difficult. The transfer on the way back should be OK.
