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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
I'm flying Denver to Las Vegas with a stop in Phoenix. I fly Frontier to Phoenix and then switch to Spirit for the flight to Vegas. My flight from Denver lands at 8:30PM and my Spirit flight leaves at 10:35PM. I know it's a short layover, so I need my flights to be on time. What have you heard about the reliability for Spirit and Frontier's timeliness, especially in the evening?
They both have very poor on-time performance, especially in the evening. I would be prepared to be stuck in Phoenix or drive to Las Vegas.
I plan to fly from Canada to Costa Rica with a 1:08 layover in PHX. Do I have to clear custom in PHX? Do I have enough time?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Canada. All you have to do in Phoenix on your way to Costa Rica is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
