  • Nassau - CDG via Miama

    My bahamas air flight arrives at 6.25pm at MIA and my next flight to CDG leaves at 8.40pm on Air France. I have to take my luggage and to re check them. We have two separate travel tickets...not possible to ckeck for the hole trip. Is the time enough ? Thanks

     

    That should be enough time if the flight from Nassau is on-time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Nassau so all you have to do is claim your bags from Bahamasair and re-check them with Air France and go through security.

     

    Thanks. But I am not sure I can pre claim as I am not an American citizen, but french.

    I'm travelling to Paris from Houston on flight aa62. My flight is scheduled to arrive in Miami at 5:09 pm and change planes in Miami for same code flight leaving at 6:15 pm. Will I possibly make it?

     

    Yes, all you have to do in Miami is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.

     

    Thank you for your prompt response, Zap!!!

     

    We are landing with flight from Copenhagen in MIA, travelling with SAS. And have a connecting flight that departures with InterJet aprox 3hrs After we land. De flight going to cancun. Will this be enough for 2persons to manage? Getting our bags, getting through customs and then checking in again with InterJet?

    I'm flying American Airlines from Jamaica via Miami to London. I land and depart from Terminal D. I have a 2 hour connection, and have baggage. I will have to go through immigration? Is this enough time?

     

    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security, but you won't have to claim and re-check your bags since you are on an International to International connection all on AA.

     

    Zap, you know everything. How it is possible?

    I will be arriving to MIA from Lima, Peru via LATAM on January 11, 2017 at 2:30PM, my connecting flight is to ORD via AA at 4:50 PM. Will it be enough time to do all checking considering that I hold a non-immigrant visa, and will have checked luggage? Thanks

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation that should be just enough time.

    Tomas we fly AA from Cancun via Miami to Aruba. Done ned to pic up bags in Miami or can i check in My bag the whole way and go straight to My Aruba flight in Miami.

     

    Since you are on an International to International connection through Miami all on American, you do not have to claim your bags in Miami. You will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security.

    I will leave with TAP at 3.30pm and flying with different airlines but checkin already done at 5pm with Interjet to Cancun. Do I have enough time?

     

    Realistically no, that isn't enough time, especially if you have checked bags. You will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security in Miami.

     

  • 43 minute layover

    My family & I will be arriving at MIA from St Thomas USVI at 8:35 pm & then scheduled to depart for Minneapolis at 9:18 pm, allowing only a 43 minute layover. Both flights are American Airlines - Is this even feasible?

     

    Yes, that is possible. Flights from USVI are considered domestic so all you have to do in Miami is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate both in Terminal D.

     

    Thank you for your prompt response, ZAP.! You've been a big help as we've never traveled thru this airport before.

    Hi Need help need to connect gate G11 to D60 and have 45 min between flight whats the best way to connect

     

    That's not enough time. You'll have to exit security and go back through to get from G to D.

     

    I made it in 20 min , had a bad queue at security gate 3 in terminal d so I skipped and went to security 2 and just took 2 min

    Yes, that is enough time. It shouldn't take 5 minutes to get between your gates in Miami.

    All flight with AA in 1 PNR. Itinerary changed by AA and I will arrived at Miami from London at 18:45, and flight to Santiago is 20:04. AA customer service confirmed it is feasible, while I am a bit worried. May I have your opinion here? Do I need to clear the custom? and re-check baggage? (I have valid US visa and Chile visa). Thank you!

     

    You don't have to claim and re-check your bags since it's international to International on AA, but you do have to go through US Immigration, customs, and Security. You have just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
