I am flying this Sunday from DFW to Miami with American Airlines, where I have 3 hours to disembark, collect baggage, go through security to get on a Virgin international flight. It is likely to be in a different terminal. Is 3 hours enough time to make this transfer successfully on a Sunday?
Yes, it will be in a different terminal. Yes, 3 hours should be enough time.
Hi I'm connecting in Miami to an AA flight to Orlando with two children husband and checked baggage We only have 90 mins to make connection and it is a late flight Will that be enough time to clear customs re check luggage and make connection ?
That is just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
I was wrong, actually my return flight is to Zurich and not Frankfurt. Araival from MBJ is on 5.12pm, departure to ZRH on 7.50pm, I am afraid time is not enough. Other option is MBJ to FLL, arrival on 2.35pm. I think this is safer. Can I reach MIA and make all necessary operations before 7.50pm?
Yes, the FLL arrival at 2:35 would be much safer.
Hi, arriving from MBJ with AA and leaving to Europe with Swissair.
Do I have to recheck my bags in MIA or is it possible to register my bags to Europe directly in MBJ?
Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at Lufthansa (Swiss doesn't fly from Miami to Frankfurt) and then go through security.
I have LGA flight at 7 am arriving MIA at 10:15am. Next flight is MIA to GUA at 11:15 am. I have only carry ons. Do I have enough time? Or do I have to go through any customs? I am TSA precheck.
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. You have enough time.
WHEN RETURNING HOME FROM CURACAO AND GOING THROUGH MIAMI CUSTOMS, WILL I HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO CATCH MY NEXT FLIGHT TO RDU WITH A 1 HOUR AND 45 MINUTE LAYOVER OR WILL I MISS MY CONNECTING FLIGHT? I HAVE CARRY ON LUGGAGE ONLY.
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly with carry-ons only.
Hi, i have a flight from DOH - MIA - SCL. I arrive to Miami (Qatar Airways) at 16:05 PM and depart to Santiago at 19:50 pm (LATAM). Do I have enough time to claim my luggage and re-check them in?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Good day, i've booked two separate flights, same airline (AA): SJU to MIA and then MIA to CUN. 2 hrs and 15 min difference between planned arrival and departure in MIA. Once I arrive in MIA will I need to go through security and customs to board MIA CUN flight?
Call AA and have the two flights added to the same reservation. There is no US Customs on flights from Puerto Rico and there is no US Customs when leaving the US. So if you don't have checked bags all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you do have checked bags and can't get them checked through, then all you have to do is claim them, re-check them, and go through security.
I will be arriving at Miami from Nicaragua at 6:50 pm and have a connecting flight to D.C. at 8:30 pm. Is this enough time to get through customs and security with checked baggage?
That is barely enough time if both flights are on AA and everything goes perfectly.
Hello, my flight from DEN will arrive at MIA at 5:46am. The next flight will leave to HAV at 7:15am. Both flights are operated by AA. I travel with a non-US passport and with no check-in luggage. Do I have enoght time to make the connection?
Yes, you have enough time. All you have to do in Miami is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank you, ZAP!
