  • Will checked Baggage make the connection?
    Oct 1, 2015
    I am flying from SJCA to GDL and have a 35 minute layover in PHX, will this be enough time for my checked baggage to make the flight to GDL?


    That should be barely enough time if everything goes perfectly


  • Enough time?
    Sep 29, 2015
    25 minutes between arrival and departure flights, both domestic, both US Airways (one operated by US Airways Express/Skywest. Enough time for me? For my bag??


  • Monterey to Phoenix to Mazatlan
    Sep 28, 2015
    we will be flying from Monterey,CA tp Phoenix on US Air and should arrive at 8:20am. Our flight from PHX to Mazatlan also on US Air is supposed to leave at 8:50am. Do we have enough time to make the connection?


    You have barely enough time if the first flight is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Time to connect from terminal 4 to terminal 3?
    Sep 3, 2015
    We are arriving on US Air in terminal 4 at 6:40am and our connection to Hawaiian Airlines leaves at 8AM from terminal 3. Any time concerns making that connection?


    Will you have checked bags? Did you purchase two separate reservations? Without checked bags, if you check in for your Hawaiian flight before you leave on your first flight I think you can make it. With checked bags on two separate reservations you might have trouble.


  • Sufficient connection time?
    Sep 3, 2015
    Hi there, we will be flying from Calgary to Mexico City, with a 54 minute layover in PHX. We will not have any checked baggage. Is that sufficient time to make our next flight or will we need to go through customs again after landing in PHX? Thanks!


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. Assuming both of your flights are with the same airline all you have to do in PHX is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • 95 min sufficient for INT-INT connection?
    Aug 29, 2015
    Arrive PHX from LHR on BA at 5:15PM. Depart AA to MEX at 6:50PM, i.e. 95 min at PHX. All in1 ticket. I need to clear US immigration? - to collect bags for re-check in with AA? Thx Off topic: Is there a lounge for AA pax in business at PHX?


    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security. You barely have enough time. you won't have time to go to a lounge.


    Thx. Hopefully our BA flight will arrive on time. What is MCT for INT/INT at PHX? Are the waiting lines for US immigration ay PHX as bad as other US major airports, like ORD or JFK?


    90 minutes is the minimum. Phoenix doesn't get too many international flights so the lines aren't usually long.


  • Connection time
    Aug 24, 2015
    I will arrive to PHX from YUMA (US airway) at 09:38 am then Departure from Terminal 2 PHX to Chicago O'Hare Airport at 11:05 am I do not know if I need to pick my baggage up or it will be directed to United so will I have plenty of time or not to get my fly to Chicago? I call to customer service US airways and they tell me two versions one you need to get your baggage and re-check and the other version is not your baggage will be directed to your final destination so I have doubts about that


    It depends whether you purchased your tickets one one reservation or two separate ones. If it was purchased on one reservation your bags will be checked through to ORD and you won't have to claim them in PHX. If you purchased two separate ones you will have to claim them in PHX and take them on the train and re-check them with United in T2.


  • Terminal 4 to Terminal 2
    Aug 18, 2015
    I am flying into PHX from DEN at 1:30 PM Labor Day weekend via Southwest (Terminal 4), and departing from PHX to SOW at 3:00 PM via Terminal 2. I have no checked bags-- will this timing be reasonable?


    With no checked bags that should be possible.


  • Terminal Change Time
    Jul 23, 2015
    If flying into Terminal 3 (Delta) with checked bags, needing to pick up said bags, take SkyTrain to Terminal 4, recheck bags with Southwest, and clear security in Terminal 4, what is the minimum amount of time required? Trying to decide if two hours is enough.


    2 hours would be difficult, but not impossible.


  • In Transit Procedure
    Jul 20, 2015
    We arrive at PHX from Edmonton, Canada at 9:50AM and depart for Mazatlan at 1:00PM, same day. We arrive and depart on US Air using the same itinterary. Do we leave the secure zone for any reason, such as to pick up luggage or to change terminals? If so do we have a time problem?


    On your way to Mazatlan you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Edmonton. All you have to do in Phoenix is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, all in the same terminal. You won't have to do anything with your baggage.


  • Flight from Vegas to Austin - US Aiways
    Jul 13, 2015
    Hi, I've booked a flight in January, Las Vegas - Austin Texas all on the one booking but with a 50 minute stop over and plane change in Phoenix. Is this enough time to change planes and also will I have to pick up my luggage and re check it? Thanks


    No, you won't have to pick up your baggage in Phoenix. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Do we have enough time to catch international flight
    Jul 8, 2015
    We arrive in Phoenix (from LAX) on American Airlines at 5:40 pm and leave to Heathrow at 7:40 pm on British Airlines. Does 2 hours give us enough time to pick up luggage and get through customs to board?


    You don't go through US Customs when leaving the US. If both tickets are on the same reservation all you have to do in PHX is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Tucson - PHX -SEA
    Jun 18, 2015
    We will be arriving in PHX at 09:54am, and flying to Seattle at 10:25am, they are both American Airlines (operated by Airway). Is 31min of connection time enough? Thank you


    Yes, that is enough time if your flight from Tucson is on-time, but you obviously have no time to spare if it's delayed. Of course the good thing about traveling in the morning is that it's more likely that your flight will be on-time and if you do miss your connection you have plenty of opportunities to be rebooked.


  • PHX-Connection between Terminals
    Jun 9, 2015
    We will be flying into PHX from LA on United in Terminal 2 at 8:39am. Our connecting flight is US Airways to MRY in Terminal 4 at 9:55am. Do we have enough time? Do we have to pick up our checked luggage from United then recheck with US Airways? Thank you in advance!


    If you purchased two separate tickets, yes, you will have to claim it from United take it on the shuttle to T4 and re-check it. In which case I think it will be hard for you to make your connection. If you don't have checked bags or you purchased your tickets on one reservation and your bags are checked through to MRY, I think you can make it.


    PERFECT! Our tickets are on one reservation thru to MRY. That's a relief!! Thank you for your assistance!


  • Cancun-PHX-SNA
    May 31, 2015
    We will be arriving in PHX, from Cancun with a 1hr 15nin layover before our connecting flight to SNA. All on American Airlines. Will this be enough time for 2 adults 2 children to pick up luggage, clear customs, drop luggage & make it to our connecting flight? Thank you in advance for answering.


    That should be barely enough time. Normally 90 minutes would be recommended but PHX sees few international arrivals so immigration there is rarely crowded.
