On Wednesday, May 30th I'm arriving in Terminal 4 from Grand Cayman at 3:55pm. I'll have to clear customs, etc. then head to Terminal 1 for a Southwest Airlines flight departure at 5:50pm. I will carry my bag on and NOT check it. Is this enough time to make my connecting flight?
I should add.. I assume I'm arriving in Terminal 4 being that it's international. I'm flying Southwest for both legs and they are 2 separate reservations. In case that helps any.

Terminal 3 is used for domestic flights and Terminal 4 for International flights.
Arriving from Punta Cana via southwest airline and leaving via spirit to Detroit . What is the location of the arriving and departing terminals
You will arrive in Terminal 1, go through US Immigration, claim your bags and go through US Customs. Then you need to go to Terminal 4, re-check your bags with Spirit, and go through security. The best way to get from T1 to T4 is to walk from T1 to the rental car center and take the rental car shuttle to T4.
My flight arrives at 10pm and I have a connecting flight at 650am the next morning. My plan is to stay in the airport during the waiting time. How can I move from the terminal 4 (since my flight is international it arrives here) and my next flight is out of terminal 1 and the shuttle services stop at 9pm and resumes at 6am?
You can walk. It's not that bad of a walk. Everything will be shut down then and you won't be allowed through security until about 4 AM.
I arrive on Southwest at 6:56pm terminal 1 and depart on Norwegian at 9:00pm terminal 3. Will I have enough time to collect my checked bags in terminal 1 and check-in at Norwegian in terminal 3 one hour before my 9:00 flight leaves. Thanks.
That should be just enough time if your Southwest flight is on-time.
We are flying in on Jet Blue (Terminal 3-Concourse F) from BWI arriving at 9:35am then flying out to Bahamas on Southwest (Terminal 1-Concourse B) at 11:30am. With no checked bags, will 2 hours be enough to get from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1, go back through security and go through customs to make Southwest flight? Thanks!
This is also on a Wednesday morning...if that makes a difference.
Yes, that should be enough time. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
Yes, realized that after I wrote it. Perfect....thanks so much!!
I have a delta flight that arrives at 11am in T2 and then a jet blue flight to San Jose from T3 at 12:15pm. Will this be enough time if I run to T3... no checked bags, just a carry on.
Yes, that is possible if the Delta flight is on-time, you check in for your JetBlue flight online, and you run.
I arrive on Allegiant flight at 9:33pm and transfer to spirit airlines to Managua with departure at 11:40pm. I have 2 checked bags. Will I have enough time to board my flight?
That should be just enough time if the Allegiant flight is on-time. You'll have to transfer your bags between airlines yourself.
I arrive from Canada at Terminal 2 at 09:42 with checked baggage and depart Silver Airways for the Bahamas in Terminal 1 at 12:00. Is that enough time? Do I need to collect my checked bags in Terminal 2, clear US customs and then check my baggage with Silver Airways in terminal 1, or will my baggage be checked directly through to the Bahamas?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Canada. in FLL you need to claim your bags, take them to T1, re-check them with Silver, and go through security. You should have enough time.
We arrive at terminal 3 at 9:52 a.m. on Jet Blue then depart from Silver airlines at terminal 1 at 10:50 a.m. How long to get to terminal 1?
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. It takes 15 minutes or so to get to Terminal 1 and then you have to go through security.
