  • connecting flight enough time?
    Feb 26, 2017
    I will arrive by AA at PHX 3/6/17 at 3:36PM & connect with AA leaving at 4:10 for Dallas. Will I have enough time to connect?


    Where are you flying into Phoenix from? If it's domestic that should be just enough time.


  • Getting through customs and to gate in 2 hrs?
    Feb 20, 2017
    Returning from PVR at 4:08 pm terminal 4 B gate, have checked bag, will I be able to get through customs and to terminal 4 A gate within 2 hrs?


    Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Feb 17, 2017


    Yes, you will have to go through security again in Terminal 4. That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Customs MIA to YVR - why? is there time?
    Feb 17, 2017
    Looking at my booking on A/C (it is the outbound half of this booking) for my flight from MIA to YVR cautions that "will need to claim any checked baggage and clear customs and immigration." When I viewed this booking through the flight locator at AA it as no such warning. I'm very concerned that I would not have enough time to pick up luggage and clear customs if what A/C is true. Very confused why I would be clearing customs here. Is there really Canadian customs at the Phoenix Airport? Or is this just boilerplate because of flights coming from say Mexico through Phoenix?? May I have your experienced advice please Flight details are: AA2581 Operated by American Airlines Monday 10 Apr, 2017 14:00 Miami arrive PHX at 4:07 PM Depart PHX (on the same flight number 2581) at 5:15 pm Arriving 20:22 Vancouver 1 stop in Phoenix (PHX) 9hr22 AA2581: This flight includes a stop in Phoenix (PHX), where passengers will need to claim any checked baggage and clear customs and immigration.


    No, there is no Canadian Immigration and Customs in Phoenix. You will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs when you get to Vancouver. You do have to leave the aircraft in Phoenix but that's it.


  • Cabo to Phoenix to Portland
    Feb 4, 2017
    Flying into PHX from Cabo, with connection to Portland, on American, on a Tuesday . . . no terminal change. Have option of a 1.5 hr., or 4.5 hr. :-( layover. Will 1.5 hrs. be enough to make it through immigration, customs, and security? Has PHX gone the speedy immigration route using self-check terminals as they have in Denver? Many thanks.


    1.5 hrs is enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • connecting flight
    Jan 16, 2017
    I am flying from las vegas to phx and phx to palm springs on american airlines i arrive in phx at 12.30 and the connecting flight leaves at 1:00 a half hour later will i be able to make theconnecting flight?t


    It's possible but it leaves no time to spare if the flight from Las Vegas is delayed.


  • 1 hour layover can I clear customs
    Jan 15, 2017
    I will be arriving at the Phoenix airport from Cabo San Lucas Mexico we have a one hour layover, we will arrive on American airlines flight term 4, our connecting plane is AA to Omaha also in terminal 4. will one hour be enough time to make it through customs and board new plane? We have no bags to claim because we will be carrying them on with us.


    With no checked bags this isn't completely impossible, but it's still VERY very difficult.


    Generally how long does it take to get through customs?


    It depends on the time of day, the day of week, and the time of year. You have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security.


  • Southwest connection
    Jan 6, 2017
    I am looking to book a flight in June. Is 55 minutes enough time for a southwest connection? Would arrive at 7:55 pm and leave at 8:50 pm. Thank you!!


    Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • PDX to Cabo connection time
    Jan 5, 2017
    Hi. My husband and I have a flight from PDX to Cabo with a connection in PHX. We arrive in PHX at 8:40 am and our flight to Cabo is at 9:39 am. Both flights are on AA. Do we have enough time to make our Cabo flight? Thank you


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Phoenix is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • 50 minutes to connect, which is better: AA or Delta?
    Dec 29, 2016
    I am booking a flight from Grand Junction, CO to Burbank, CA in June. Both AA to AA or Delta to Delta have a 50 minute connection window. Which would be better, if the flight is on time?


    Delta does not have a hub in Phoenix. I'm guessing you would be connecting in Salt Lake City in that case? If so I think connecting at SLC would be a bit easier, it's smaller than Phoenix.


  • clearing customs
    Dec 28, 2016
    I fly in from Calgary on Westjet at 8:45 pm and leave for Yuma at 10:55 pm on American. Do I have enough time to clear customs?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. All you have to do in Phoenix is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate if both flights are on the same reservation.


  • 36 minutes to connect from AA to AA?
    Dec 20, 2016
    flying back from Burbank to Tampa in 36 mins enough to connect via PHX if I am on AA?


    Yes, it's enough time if the first flight is on-time but obviously leaves no time to spare if it's not.


  • Clearing customs when returning from puerto vallarta
    Dec 14, 2016
    My flight from PVR arrives at 4:03 pm. My AA flight leaves 5:59 pm. Reservation agent ensures me this is enough time to clear customs. True?


    Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Connecting flight time
    Dec 12, 2016
    Arriving from Newark at 10:09 am on 21 December (united) and departing to Portland PDX at 11:05am (American airline) . I will have a carry-on baggage and checked baggage. Would I make the connection?


    That is not possible. United and American use different terminals and you would have to transfer your bags yourself. you might BARELY have a chance with no checked baggage if you checked in for your American flight online before leaving Newark.


  • Connection time arriving from Costa Rica
    Nov 29, 2016
    Arriving from Costa Rica on January 12th to Phoenix on American Airlines 871 at 12:29 p.m. and departing to Bakersfield on American Airlines 3032 at 2:56 p.m. is this enough time to clear immigration customs and recheck bags thank you


    Yes, that is enough time. There is no need to ask the exact same question three times.


    Thank you very much for your prompt reply also for the record there is no need to judge clearly I didn't mean to write three times exactly the same thing. I work on board a cruise ship my internet connection on the phone wasn't good I kept losing the page and trying to retype everything all over again until I saw that it went 3 times and I couldn't delete it. thank you
