We will be booking a flight from Santiago, Chile, to Tampa, via Miami. What is a safe length of layover in Miami? Both flights onAmerican Airlines. Also, will checked bags automatically go to the next flight?
You will have to claim your bags in Miami to take them through US Customs. You'll want at least 2 hours in Miami.
I am flying on AA from San Juan, PR through Miami Airport to Turks and Caicos, I have a 1 hour & 28 m layover. Will that be enough time to clear immigration and customs and catch the AA connection to TCI. Also, will I have to pick up my baggage in Miami or will it be check through?
Thanks and Cheers
There is no US Immigration and customs when leaving the US. Flights from Puerto Rico to the mainland are considered domestic flights. All you have to do in Miami is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
I am arriving to Miami international from the Caribbean at 11am Saturday at terminal D. I have a connecting flight to Europe at 3pm the same day at terminal E or F. Is 4hrs transit time enough to pass through immigration, customs, check in againa nd pass through security? I cannot miss my flight as the airline does not have another till 4 days later.
Yes, that is enough time. Is it two separate reservations or one reservation? What airlinea re you flying out on? Where in the Caribbean are you coming from?
I arrive on AA to Mia at 7.35pm flight from saint Lucia...my connecting flight on AA is at 9.25pm to LAS VEGAS. I have a British passport..will I have enough time to make connection? Also since I'm flying in to Mia from the Caribbean will my checked luggage go straight to next AA flight ?
Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will have to claim your bags in Miami to take them through US Customs, then immediately re-check them.
