We are traveling May 2 from Denver to Edinburgh (both non-Schengen) on Lufthansa transfering planes in Frankfurt. The flight to Frankfurt appears to arrive at either C or Z gates and the flight to Edinburgh (also Lufthansa) appears to leave from B gates. We have only a one hour layover in Frankfurt. What's the best/fastest way to get from C to B or from Z to B and will we have to go through pasport control and/or security? Thanks for any help you can offer.
Lufthansa uses Terminal 1, Concourses A & B at FRA; today's Denver flight is listed as '1B'; while the Edinburgh flight is '1A'. On Arrival at FRA you need to go through non-Schengen immigration /customs clearance before proceeding to your connecting gate on level 3. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/fra; then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.
We are flying into denver on sunday, and taking united to maui. Will the weather they have had this week cause any delays sunday?
Things have already returned pretty much to normal in DEN and the forecast for Sunday looks OK. It shouldn't affect you.
Want to pick up someone at Terminal w/o parking.
Best way to do it.
Most airports have a thing called a "cell phone lot" - you wait there in your car for the person you're picking up to call you, and then you drive up to the arrival area of the terminal to pick them up.
I am considering a flight from Toronto to San Juan in December that connects through JFK. The layover is only 45 minutes but we can go through US customs in Pearson airport in Toronto so we can avoid that at JFK however the flight from Toronto arrives in terminal 2 and the flight to San Juan departs from terminal 4. Is the 45 minutes enough considering we don't have to clear customs? Both flights are with the same carrier so the bags should go all the way through.
Both flights would be with Delta I assume? If so it's possible to make the connection, but be aware that JFK is pretty delay prone. However there is an airside shuttle between Terminal 2 and Terminal 4 so you can make the connection without having to go back through security. So, assuming your first flight is on-time, it's possible, barely.
I am connecting in IAD from a flight from San Juan PR to Hartford and the connecting time is 44 min. Is that enough time???
If your first flight is on time that should be fine.
Here's how a tour agency booked my 82-year old Mom thru Dullus: Sunday 4/07 arrive from Cleveland 11:40AM at gate A3G. Depart Dullus on UA for JFK at 12:17PM from Gate D4. Only 37 min. Is this even possible? I'm thinking not ...
At IAD Dulles Airport, the Underground Aerotrain runs in a continuous loop from the main terminal's post-security area to the center of the midfield concourses A/B (A gates) and C/D (C gates), takes minutes, but presently does not serve the D gates; A gates are connected by walkway to the main terminal, and the shuttle bus to the D gates is located on the Main Terminal's lower level (to the right of the passenger walkway to A& B gates). I don't consider 37 mins adequate time for anyone, let alone an elderly person. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iad, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.
I will be flying in to terminal 8 and then have a 30 minute layover until my next flight. Unfortunately looking into other flights with the same route etc., my connecting flight to HNL can be in either terminal 6 or 7. In either case will I have enough time to do either of these scenarios? Do I have to go through security again from terminals 8 to 7 or 8 to 6?
Also with that tight of a schedule knowing these circumstances, would it be best to carry on or check luggage?
Thank you
Presuming you mean LAX Airport, 30 mins is definitely not enough time if you need to change terminals, where you need to go through security check at connecting terminal: While T6 & T7 are connected by underground tunnel, T8 is a short walkway from T7. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/lax, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.
i,m arriving in denver on frontier alines and i,m transfer to another frontier airline will i have to recheck by baggage or will they do that automatically?
Your baggage will be checked through to your final destination. If both of your Frontier flights are domestic you don't have to do anything with your baggage and won't touch it until your final destination. If your first Frontier flight is international, then you will have to claim your baggage in immigration in Denver then re-check it with Frontier once you exit customs.
How much time should I allow between International flight and connection to USA
It depends where you're coming from and where you're connecting.
As an international arrival in the US you need to go through passport check, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance, and (if continuing your flight) re-check-in your bag where indicated. That can take up between 40 & 60 mins; if you need to change terminals for your connecting flight, you need time to get there and go through security check before proceeding to your gate - could be another hour. I strongly suggest you open www.ifly.com, add your Airport name or Code on top, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text for airport & terminal information.
Coming from Flight from Frankfurt to Toronto to Minneapolis I have 1hour and 6 minutes if flight from Frankfurt is on time
I would budget at least 3 hours. You'll have to clear Canadian immigration upon arrival, then go to the US departures area, then clear US Immigration and security procedures all in Toronto. The advantage being that your arrival into Minneapolis will be like a normal domestic flight in the US.
Air France has only given me 65 minutes to make my international connection. I arrive at 2E and my connection is at 2F. Is this even possible? Do I have to take the bus between terminals or can I walk without having to go through security?
Where are you coming from and going to?
