I arrive terminal D & have to clear immigration (I am British) then connect to terminal C - is 1hour 50 long enough. Qantas say it is!
Hi my husband and child are flying in from Sydney on Quantas today and it looks like their flight gets in late at 1:45, they have to get their bags, clear customs and get to an AA flight at 2:30, are they going to make it and is there any way to help them get through customs faster? The only flight if they miss this flight is the next day!
They probably aren't going to make it unless their second flight is also delayed. Most of their plane is probably in the same situation.
Hi Im wondering if 1 hr 20 mins is long enough for a connecting flight, coming off a Qantas international flight from Sydney (1300hrs), Australia and connecting with American Airlines to Cleveland (dep 1425hrs). Given that we have to collect bags and pass through immigration and customs, is there a fast track option for these tight connections.
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. There is no "fast track" option as nearly your entire plane will have tight connections.
Hi. I am flying into DWF Gate C11 via AA and then need to get to Terminal D Gate D6 for Etihad Airlines. Can you please confirm the quickest way to go about it? I have a 20 minute layover and I am afraid that I might have to pass through security again. Is that true?
Do you have one reservation or two separate reservations? The Skylink train connects all terminals and gates inside security so if your bags are checked through you don't have to go through security again. Still a 20 minute connection is pretty risky.
I'm arriving from honolulu D27a with a hour to catch a connection C20 is that enough time?
Yes, that is enough time. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security.
How much time should I allow between arriving on a domestic American Airline flight from LV, NV to transferring to the international terminal departing also on an American Airline flight
45-60 minutes is doable. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Skylink train.
What is fastest way. I arrive at A34 and depart D29A. I have 25 minutes before gate closes. Can I walk it or is skylink better.
Take the Skylink. It's always faster than walking if you have to change terminals, especially to Terminal D which is not connected to other terminals except by the Skylink.
At what Terminal does flight 1896 depart on 12/11/2017?
American 1896? Terminal A or C. AA.com will have the exact terminal the day of your flight.
How long will it take to get from gate B gate to E gate
On the Skylink about 10-15 minutes, but what airlines are you flying that requires you to go between those gates?
Arriving from FWA on 12-20 and my connecting flight is 45 mins before departing for Tucson. Is this enough time? I see several flights every week with the same so I am guessing it works?
Yes, that's enough time. American uses Terminals A, B, C, and D, but all gates are connected inside security by the Skylink train.
