Hi I arrive silver airways in terminal 1 from a small island at 2pm and depart american at 440 pm in terminal 3 will that give me enough time to clear customs and board at 420Pm?
That should be just enough time if the Silver flight is on-time and everything goes smoothly, however, beware that Silver flights are often delayed.
We are considering booking a flight on Southwest Airlines from DC to Belize. It gives us 1 hour and 10 minutes in FLL. Is that enough time change planes for an international flight. It looks like they only have one flight out from FLL each day so it would be a problem if we missed it.
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank you!
We are changing planes in FT. Lauderdale to go to Montego Bay , arrive at terminal 1 gate B5 and I need to board at gate A2 with about a 25 minute layover will I be able to make that in enough time on foot? Thanks
What airlines are you flying? Is it one reservation or two separate reservations? Do you have checked bags?
I am flying Southwest from Rhode Island change in Fort Lauderdale to Montego bay one reservation Not checking bags
Then you should have enough time, but that connection leaves no time to spare.
Hi! I arrive on southwest in terminal 1 and need to get to norwegian in terminal 3. No checked bags. I have 50 minutes between arrival and departure. Note that Norwegian states that “Boarding closes 30 minutes before departure” so that leaves me with 20 minutes?! I won’t make it, right? TIA!
You have absolutely no chance of making that. You need to change your Southwest flight.
Hi We are arriving on a Southwest flight (with Bags) from Nashville at 1.10pm at T3. We will need to collect bags then travel to T4 to check in for our British Airways flight to UK which leaves at 16.55pm. Will this be enough time? How long does it take to get between T3 and T4 ndhow do you do it? Thanks
Southwest flights use T1, not T3. You should have enough time. You have to take your bags to the Rental Car Shuttle in the Rental Car building and then take that to T4.
Fly in on Delta and depart 45 minutes later on JetBlue to Bahamas will that be enough time
No, that is not realistically enough time, especially with checked baggage.
I'm booked on Azul flight from Brazil to FLL that arrives 7:15 AM. I'm considering connecting to JetBlue domestic flight that departs FLL at 9:06 AM. Arriving business class, so likely off plan quickly. Checking bags. Believe both airlines operate out of Terminal 3

Any way this works?
That's just enough time if you don't have checked bags. With Checked Bags it will be very difficult.
We will be flying in from Philadelphia on Jet Blue and have 49 minutes to connect to another Jet Blue flight leaving for Turks and Caicos. Is that enough time?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. All you have to go is go from your arrival gate to your departure.
I'm arriving JetBlue domestic and next leg is international but still on JetBlue. Do I have to change terminals?
Possibly. However, all JetBlue gates are connected inside security and all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

I thinking about taking a flight on American Airlines from MUC-PHL-FLL and would then be taking a Spirit flight to SJO. I would have 1 hour connection time and a checked bag. Is is possible at all to make that flight?

That is absolutely not enough time with a checked bag. There's no way you'd have your bag to the Spirit check in desk before the cutoff.
