My flight is scheduled to arrive in STL at 7:40am and depart for LGA at 8:15am. Both Southwest. Late July on a Friday. Early bird check-in. 2 total travelers. 1. Is that enough time (I imagine it is since SW had it set up like that)? 2. What is the common practice for assuring that we get 2 seats together on the connecting flight to LGA? 3. Any recommendations on how to make the switch between planes as stress-free as possible?
Yes, that is enough time but doesn't leave much time to spare. You can board as soon as you get to your gate with Early Bird, however, there's no guarantee you can get seats together if you are delayed getting to your departure gate.
I will be arriving in Terminal 1 (AirChoice One) and departing Terminal 2 (Southwest). How long does it take to get between terminals? I'm arriving at 2:15 and have a 3:00 flight.
With checked bags that's not reasonably enough time. Without checked bags you can probably only make it if Air Choice One can drive you to your departure gate (which they sometimes do for tight connections).
I have a similar issue. However, my Air Choice flight arrives at 2:20 p.m. and my departing flight with Southwest is at 3:45. Is this enough time to make the departing flight?
I have never flown CapeAir. Is it generally on-time (from Kirksville)? If I need to make a connection from CapeAir (is it in Terminal 1?) to Southwest (Terminal 2) and I have only a roller carry-on and a big purse - is 40 minutes enough time? (CapeAir Scheduled arrive 1:20; SW departure 2:00 p.m.)
Cape Air does a pretty good job being on-time. They will take you directly to your Southwest gate so you can make your connection if it is on-time.
My well traveled daughter is flying through St Louis from CLE, onto SAN during Thanksgiving break. Her flight is on Thanksgiving day, arriving in St Louis at 8:35 and departing at 9:10 am. Is this a reasonable itinerary? I don't see any "short layover" cautions. If her flight is delayed out of CLE will she get stuck in St Louis?
Are both flights on Southwest? If so that should be possible if the first flight is on-time. Southwest doesn't give "Short layover" cautions on their website.
She is on southwest for both flights, most likely in the same terminal. Will advise her to run to her next gate to catch the plane. No food options. No pit stops
