I am arriving on March 20 at 4:35 am from GIG to MIA. I only have a carry on. I have a connecting flight with United at 6:10am. Is this possible? Thanks!
I meant to add that I will be coming in from GIG on American Airlines.
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. You'll have to run across the airport to get to your United flight. I'm guessing you're stopping in Houston first? (United doesn't fly from Miami to Austin).
Thats correct. A stop in Houston. I think its probably best i pick a different flight. :( thanks for your reply!
I am travelling from London to Dom republic via Miami with American Airlines. Will I have to clear customs & immigration as have only 2 hours?
Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi, I will be returning home to BOS from Guatemala City (GUA), with a connection in Miami. Is 2 hours enough time between flights? I know I have to go through customs, will I have to re-enter security as well? The flights are both on American Airlines.
Yes, you will also have to go through security again. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
We have 50 minutes on a flight from Newark to Miami connecting for a flight to Turks and Caico's. I know this is close, but is it in the same terminal? All American Airlines.
Yes, it's the same terminal. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hello, We've booked flights through American Airlines website from Havana to George Town via Miami where we transit for 2 hours (First flight AA, second flight AA but Operated by Republic Airlines AS American Eagle). Do you know if we have to claim and recheck our bags and if 2 hours will be sufficient on a Sunday at around 1pm? Thank you!!
You will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security but you will not have to claim and re-check your bags. 2 hours should be just about enough time.
Hi there, I am flying from Atlanta to Miami to London, all with British Airways. I have 55 mins to catch the connecting flight to London, any ideas on if I'll be able to make it?
Yes, you should be able to make that. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank you so much for your quick response. God bless you
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.
