We fly BA to Miami then AA to Grand Cayman, all arranged by BA. They have allowed us 3 hours on the way out but only 2 hours on the return. Is this enough time? Also do we have to collect luggage at Miami? Thanks
On the way there, that is sufficient. On the way back it's more difficult. Yes, you will likely have to claim your bags to take them through US Customs both ways.
I will depart MIA at 3:30 PM on AA but my cruise arrives very early so I have a 5 hour wait and I would like to use the VIP Lounge in Terminal J. Do I have to go thru security at Term D and then walk to Term J or will they let me go through security at Term J with an AA ticket? How long a walk is it between J and D? I want to avoid the skytrain since it is not airside.
There's no guarantee you will be allowed through security in J and J and D are not connected inside security.
Hello there, so I'm flying with LATAM from UIO - MIA arriving at 13.30 ,do have one checked luggage, then flying with TUIFLY to Brussels departing at 16.05 would have to clear customs and re check my luggage. Would it be enough time?
That's just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Hello, I am flying American Airlines from London Heathrow to Miami and then on to Montego Bay, Jamaica. I have just under two hours to make my connecting flight, have the airline given me enough time? Thanks in advance.
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I'm flying to the UK from Dominican republic via Miami. My flight is business class. Do I have to collect my baggage and recheck it in? I have wheel chair assistance will they help me?
You have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and SEcurity. However, if both flights are on American you don't have to claim and re-check your bags since it's an International to International connection.
It's American Airline from DR then British Airways from Miami (partnership flight) Will i still have to claim and recheck - thanks
You'll have to ask the airline when you check your bags in DR.
I am flying AA from DC to Miami and then have an hour layover in Miami before I carry on to Panama City. I am worried about having to clear customs in that time. Will I go through customs in Miami and will it be enough time? or do I just go through customs once in Panama. Thanks
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.
