Is 38 minutes enough layover time from Syracuse to Boston then to San Francisco? We are not experienced air travelers and have never been to Boston's airport. Thank you.
What airlines are you flying? Are both flights on the same reservation?
The airline is Jet Blue and it is one reservation. Thank you.
How much time do I need between flights. I arrive from London at 1:30pm on British Air and will take another flight to Indianapolis. What time should I book my return to Indianapolis?
I wouldn't book anything before 4 PM.
If traveling to another country I have 2 stops does my baggage get claimed is does it automatically go to my other flights
You're going to have to be more specific about where you're flying from and where you're flying to and on what airlines.
Hi we are coming from Orlando to Boston on virgin (operated by delta) arriving at 15.04 and then depart at 2140 by virgin to London. Will our bags be transferred automatically and any ideas what to do in the 6 hours we have? We are a family of 4 - kids 11 and 13. Can we leave the airport?
Yes, your bags will be transferred automatically. Yes, you can leave the airport.
Is 1 hour 20 minutes enough of a layover flying Aer Lingus from Dublin and 2nd leg Jet Blue? It will be one reservation, so luggage should go through and I know Dublin has pre-clearance. Just wondering if it's enough time between gates/terminals. Thank you!
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank you!
Flying domestic (ultimately, from San Diego to DC), with a 54-minute layover in BOS. One, single reservation with American Airlines, probably with no checked baggage. Is 54 mins enough?

Thank you!
American Airlines does not fly from San Diego to Boston. Are you stopping somewhere else first? Is the flight from San Diego operated by Alaska Airlines?
I am going to connect Quatar airways via Boston in 3 hours . I will have 2 checked Baggage and coming from Toronto Via Air Canada.
Please tell me the entire procedure.
Is 3 hours enough time ?
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Boston is claim your bags from Air Canada in Terminal B, take them with you to Terminal E, re-check them with Qatar Airways, and go through security.
After arriving at Terminal C, how can she check her baggage for Turkey from Terminal E

I'm flying into Boston from Dallas on a JetBlue flight at 1608 and my connecting flight to Bar Harbor is at 1740. Will I make it or should I book alternative flights?
Is it one reservation or two separate reservations? That should be enough time.
It's two separate reservations
I will arrive at BOS from DFW at 5:11 and next flight leaves at 6:45 for Syracuse. Is this enough time with a checked bag and will the checked bag be automatically sent through? I will be traveling alone with children.
What airlines are you flying? If both flights are on American then your bags will go straight through and all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate and you have plenty of time.
