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.
WE ARRIVE DELTA AT 8:17 AM/FLY AMERICAN AT 9:57 AM
ARE WE NEEDING TO GO THRU SECURITY AGAIN AFTER WE LAND TO SWITCH TERMINALS? ENOUGH TIME WITH CARRY ON BAGS ONLY?
Yes, you will have to go through security again in Terminal 4. That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
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: 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
