  • CLT-MCO-PDX Connecting From AA to AS
    Aug 15, 2016
    I have an 1hr 33min layover in MCO going to PDX and an 1hr 42min Coming back through MCO WIll that work (I'm going from American - Alaska and Alaska to American). How early should I be at the Airport in PDX my flight leaves at 6:40am. Will connecting through MCO Work?


    Are they connected inside Security? The Terminals? Will I have to Switch Terminals?


    You will have to go to the main landside terminal, cross over to the other side, go through security again, and take the train to a different airside concourse in MCO. For your flight from PDX you should get to the airport at about 6:30 if you don't have to check a bag, a little earlier if you do.


    If your flight leaves at 6:40AM, you should not arrive at the airport at 6:30. 5:15 is a safe bet if you have bags to check, 5:30 if you don't.


  • Connection time
    Jul 30, 2016
    Planning a trip from Denver to Montego Bay on Southwest. The return connects in Orlando with 1 hour 40 minutes... Is that enough time to get thru customs & immigration (NOT checking luggage) and get to the gate in time for boarding?


    With no checked bags that should be enough time.


  • SEA-MCO-CLT Will a 1hr 40min Layover do?

    Will a 1hr 40min Layover in MCO work? I'm Switching airlines but I'm using miles/buying them on the same ticket (Alaska-American code share partners). Will I have to get my bags and re-check them? And Will I have to go through security when changing terminals if I have to?


    You will have to go through security again but you won't have to do anything with your bags. You should have just enough time.


    Thanks. I should have enough time.


    Just to also to also mention it is a overnight flight to Seattle. So I think at 5am there really shouldn't be a wait for security right?


    You'd be surprised how many people fly on early morning flights.


  • Chicago to Jamaica Connection in MCO, 40 minutes enough?
    Nov 9, 2015
    I am trying to plan flights and find the cheapest route. There is a flight from Chicago to Montego Bay, that connections in Orlando and is $300 cheaper than the non stop route. HOWEVER, the lay over in Orlando is only 40 minutes. I am concerned that this is not long enough. Any advice is appreciated!! :-)


    What airline?
