  • enough time to connect
    Mar 24, 2017
    I am thinking of taking a Southwest flight from Burbank that gives me an hour to connect in PHX to my flight to Baltimore - I am taking a 2 year old and a stroller - will I have enough time to connect


    Yes, that is enough time.


    Mar 20, 2017
    I'm flying from MSP on Delta to PHX and have 1 hour 35 min to connect to HMO(Hermosilla) on American Airlines. I believe Delta lands in Terminal 3 and American leaves from Terminal 4. Is that enough time with just carry on to board an international flight.? Do I need to go through security again between terminals.


    Yes, you will have to go through security again between Terminals. This is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.


  • Transfer Las Vegas-Phoenix-Cancun
    Mar 19, 2017
    American Airlines 217 - Las Vegas - Phoenix American Airlines 1383 - Sky Harbor Intl. (PHX) to Cancun Intl. (CUN) Stopover 1h 16m - Is this a long enough transfer time??


    Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Las Vegas is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the way to Cancun.


  • Enough Layover time?
    Mar 15, 2017
    Enough Layover time Mar 15, 2017 0 April 4th: American 1783 from SFO with a 1:14 layover to get on AA 5902 (Canada Air) to Guadalajara. Is that plenty of time? If not, how much would be? I'll do anything not to layover in Dallas or Houston! Thanks!


    Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 4.

    What airlines are you flying?


  • Can I make connection between these 2 AA flights in 34 minutes?
    Mar 9, 2017
    Arriving Phoenix from Grand Junction at 9:21am on AA 3075 with 34 minutes until next flight at 9:55am on AA 669 to Philadelphia. Will I be able to make connection, assuming no delays?


    That's pretty risky, but it's not impossible. Hope your first flight is on-time and run. Luckily it's in the morning so you'll have other opportunities to get to Philadelphia that day if you miss your connection.


  • AA 517 connecting to AA 1709 with 35 minutes connection
    Mar 7, 2017
    My flight AA517 as per scheduled shall arrived at 07.43 & I connect with AA1709 as per scheduled depart at 08.18. I have elderly in my group. They can walk but not run. Enough time? Can I run 1st to the gate & advise them that the other travelers are coming


    You can't make them wait for you. The connection is possible. If the elderly people in your party have mobility issues you can request wheelchair service by calling American. 35 minutes should be enough time if the first flight is on-time.

    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.

  • 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.
