  • Cabo to Denver w/ Flight change in Phoenix
    Oct 11, 2016
    Arrive in Phoenix from Cabo on Friday @ 1:45pm. flight to Denver is at 2:55pm so 1 hr and 10 min connection time. Is this enough time to make connection?


    It's not impossible, but realistically it will be very very difficult.


    What about a 3 Hr 20 min connection and need to change terminals? Thx.


    What airlines are you flying where you would need to change terminals?


    American Airlines. Not sure where changing just states on the itinerary "Change Terminals"


    All AA flights at PHX are in Terminal 4. No terminal change is required. Is there some other part of the itinerary that may have a terminal change? Are you sure it isn't offering the other connection over a different hub such as DFW or LAX?


    My apologies...yes that flight that changes terminals is through DFW. I guess I will see what info I can find in regards to DFW. Thank you for your help!


    Yes, that connection at DFW would be doable.


    paid extra for priority status on AA, and only have carryon. Fingers crossed.


  • Mazatlan to Phoenix to Sacramento
    Sep 21, 2016
    Arrive Mesa American Eagle on Tues at 4:10pm. Depart in 1.5 hours to Sacramento on American. If I have carry on luggage instead of a checked bag what is the Custom procedure? Do I save much time?


    If you do not have checked bags you just go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security and to your departure gate. You do save some time.

    Arrive Terminal 3 Hawaiian need to go to terminal 4 American Eagle to Yuma AZ only have 40 minutes Hopefully bags will be checked through.


    That's not reasonably possible.


  • Mazatlan to Sacramento with Flight Change in Phoenix
    Sep 19, 2016
    Arrive on MESA American Eagle Tuesday 4:10pm. Depart in 1.5 hours to Sacramento on American. I have checked luggage. What is the Custom procedure and do I have enough time? Same terminal?


    Both flights will be in Terminal 4. You will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time if your flight from Mazatlan is on-time.


  • Connection Time OK?
    Sep 18, 2016
    I will have a 40 minute connection time from AA563 arriving from DC to AA596 going to San Jose, CA. Do you think this amount of time is long enough?


    Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.


  • Connection time walking slowly with cane -- should ask for assistance?
    Sep 12, 2016
    Have a Mesa Airlines American Eagle flight 5738 from ABQ arrive PHX 9:10am (not sure what terminal), connecting to American 506 depart 10:13am to Vancouver (not sure what terminal). I walk slowly but steadily with a cane, can I make this connection or should I ask for some kind of assistance. If asking, to whom do I make a request for assistance. Catching a ride on a cart would be perfect. How best do I make the connection?


    Both flights will be in Terminal 4. If you need assistance you need to contact american Airlines by calling them before your flight.


    Thanks very much.


  • Flight from Vancouver to Mazatlan stopover Phoenix
    Sep 11, 2016
    I'm dying from Vancouver with American Airlines to Mazatlan with 40 minute stopover in Phoenix . Do we need to go through security again or just go to departure gate. Only taking carry on luggage .


    You will pre-clear US Immigration in Vancouver. All you have to do in Phoenix is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have just enough time if your flight from Vancouver is on-time.


  • Cabo to Denver through PHX
    Aug 29, 2016
    In mid-October, I'm flying AA533 into PHX from SJD (Cabo), have 1:10 to fly out on AA642 to DEN (Denver). Is this enough time to clear customs if I'm not checking bags?


    I think that's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • is it possible to catch connecting flight MEX PHX SAN on AA
    Aug 29, 2016
    i will arrive from MEX and have connectiing flight to SAN with following filight details AA 225 MEX PHX 1435 1557 AA 462 PHX SAN 1710 1818 is the connecting time make sense or not because i know i need to clear immigration and security again...please advice me.thanks


    That is a very difficult connection. Maybe possible because International Immigration and Customs won't be too busy at Phoenix in the late afternoon/early evening, but still difficult.


  • Connection time
    Aug 25, 2016
    Connection from AA1584 (LAS-PHX) to AA1976 (PHX-CLT): Is it doable in 51 minutes? Are they on the same terminal? Thank you!


    Yes, that's possible. Both gates are in Terminal 4.


  • help!
    Aug 25, 2016
    I am arriving at terminal 2 gate 7 and only have one hour to get my bags, go through customs, and get to terminal 4 gate A5 How do I do it?


    That's not reasonably possible. However, you don't have to go through customs as no International flights arrive in Terminal 2 and you don't have to go through US Customs when leaving the US. Where exactly are you flying from and to and on what airlines?


    sorry, I am arriving at terminal 4 - american airlines from Cabo San Lucas connectiing to Philadelphia - also on american


    OK, that's not quite as bad, but still very difficult, bordering on impossible.


  • 1 hour 10 minutes stopover time at PHX
    Aug 25, 2016
    We will take American Airline flight no. AA 1650 from Orlando and arrive PHX at 8:00 PM and depart PHX by same American Airline flight no. AA 1505 to Vancouver, Canada at 9:10 PM. AA 1650 is a US domestic flight but AA 1505 is an international flight. Are the arrival gate of AA 1605 and departure gate of AA 1505 in the same terminal? The stopover time is only 1 hour 10 minutes. Is this stopover time enough for us to catch AA 1505 on time?


    Yes, that is enough time. Yes, both gates are in Terminal 4. All you have to do in Phoenix is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • "American Eagle operated by Mesa Air.
    Aug 22, 2016
    I have a 51 min layover in Phx traveling from Boise to Albuquerque. I fly in on American and transfer to "American Eagle operated by Mesa Air." I have a carry on only - is this enough time?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 4. No need to ask the same question twice.


  • AA to DL 34 mins?
    Aug 20, 2016
    I have a 34 min connection from AA (terminal 4) to DL (terminal 3). Is this enough and do I have to go thru security again ? And why is this information so hard to find on the web?? Especially the security part?


    Yes, you will have to go through security again. This connection is completely impossible. If you haven't already booked it, don't.


  • American regional connection
    Aug 20, 2016
    I'm flying from SJC to PHX on American, then taking an American regional jet to Roswell, NM (ROW). American says it's "American operated by SkyWest as American Eagle", but I'm not sure if that means the ROW flight would be taking off out of the same terminal in which the incoming flight landed, which I would assume is Terminal 4. I only have an hour on the connect, so I'm trying to see if I'll need to be sprinting it for this one to another terminal. On the surface, it looks like the same terminal, but not sure if these twice-removed scenarios actually have me taking off out of a commuter terminal.


    Both flights will be in Terminal 4. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thank you! Great news!
