I am flying from Montreal to Catania, via American airlines with stop over in Philadelphia and Rome. I have one ticket through travelocity. I only have 1hr and 20 minutes in Rome. Do you know if I need to pick up baggage in Rome before boarding for Catania. AA says yes, Travelocity says no.
What airline are you flying to Catania?
If it's all on one ticket then you should not have to claim your bag in Rome and should have enough time.
Thank you.
I will be flying from Tel Aviv to CDG Paris on Alitalia, connecting for my second flight at FCO. I have a wide choice of connections, ranging from 1 hour 20 minutes to 12 hours. Will the shortest connection of 1 hr 20 min be long enough, or should I try for something in the 2-4 hour range?
I personally would book the 2-4 hour range, but the 1 hr 20 minute one isn't impossible.
After 2 weeks in Italy, I will be flying from Catania, Sicily back to Rome arriving at T2 at 8:25 am, I have carry-on luggage, and need to go to Terminal 5 for my flight at 10:40 am back to states. Do I have to go outside to Terminal 5 and go through all the check in, security and passport at Terminal 5 or is there a secured way to get from T2 to T5? If I do have to go outside to T5 is 2 hours and 15 minutes enough time?
Your departure gate will be in Terminal 3, so you MAY be able to check in at the transfer desk of your carrier in Terminal 3 rather than go to Terminal 5, but there's no guarantee. You do have enough time to go to T5 if you have to if the flight from Sicily is on-time.
Hi I am flying from Alghero to Rome FCO T1 arriving 20.30pm with Alitalia and flying FCO T3 to London at 21.55pm with Norwegian with 1 checked in baggage. Is it possible? Thank you for your advice.
I think that will be really difficult getting your checked bag and then re-checking it with Norwegian in time.
Thank you for your advice.. I'd like to ask one more question.. if I buy an Alitalia ticket from Alghero to Rome arriving 20.30 pm and stopover and the day after from Rome to London at 9am, should I still have to get my checked bag and bring it to the next flight? -sorry a bit complicated. Appreciate your answer,
You would have to ask Alitalia to make sure, but I'm fairly sure you would have to claim your bag the evening you arrive and then re-check it the following morning.
Also, if Norwegian operates the flight to London, you will DEFINITELY have to re-check it. Norwegian doesn't interline bags with any other airlines.
Thank you. I really appreciated your comment. I booked another ticket for the day after morning. Hopefully everything goes well.
Hello, I am arrivin to T2 at 18:45 and departing from T2 at 20:50, I have separate tickets and 1 registrated bag, which I sould take and register again. Will it be anought time?
Where are you flying from and to? What airlines are you flying?
Arriving from Detroit at 9:15AM on Delta. Flight to Malta at 10:20AM on Alitalia. Carry on only. Is this enough time? What terminals? Thank you.
These are separate tickets also
You will arrive in Terminal 3 and depart from Terminal 1. This is a very difficult connection, but not impossible if everything goes perfectly.
HI, I'm traveling from OLB (Sardinia) to FCO arriving at 0755, then FCO to CLT departing at 11:15. OLB to FCO is on Meridiana, then separate ticket on AA to CLT. I have just over 3 hours with checked bags. I understand I'll need to collect my bag from Meridiana flight then recheck with AA. Is 3 hrs 15 mins enough time? Thanks
Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Olbia is on-time.
Thank you so much for the information.
Hi I'm flying from Athens to Rome (arriving at 1010 Am). On a separate itinerary i am flying Rome directly to Detroit at 1115 am. What do you think
That is not possible because for your Delta flight you will have to check in in Terminal 5.
Flying from Brindisi to FCO Terminal 1 with Alitalia, then Vueling from T3 to Spain. Is 1:45 enough time to transfer? Assume will need to collect luggage and check in with Vueling.
With checked bags that will be very difficult, but not impossible.
March 2027 - arriving from Atlanta to FCO on Delta. 1.5 hours to connect (separate tickets) to VCE on AlItalia. Enough time?
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly. It will be difficult if you have checked bags and can't get them tagged through to Venice.
