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.
Arriving in Logan BOS at 10:20 AM on Delta Flight 6200 from RDU (operated by GoJet Airlines DBA Delta connection). What terminal are we likely to land in?

Leaving BOS at 6:20 PM TAP Portugal 218, business class. What terminal are we likely to leave from?

Are we able to spend the day in an airport lounge (have Delta lounge access through AMEX PLAT card, AA Admiral's club membership, Priority Pass select access and will be business class on TAP Portugal)? Our concern is what to do with our checked luggage after we pick it up at luggage claim following our Delta trip to BOS.

Is there a lounge outside of security where we could stay with our luggage?
Could we check our luggage with TAP Portugal and then go to a lounge or will check in for our flight not be opened?

Other suggestions?
I am a first time international flyer,also travelling alone.I will fly from India to Boston via dubai (emirates) and Boston to detroit (jet blue)..all in one ticket/booking. I get only 2 hours for the next detroit flight Is that enough for customs clearance and check in?please help.I am travelling on April 1.I ll have 2 checked in luggage
Yes that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
thanks for the reply. Do i need to claim the checked in baggage and go to custom clearance section? Kindly let me know the relevant procedures
Yes, you will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, walk to Terminal C and go through security and to your departure gate.
Thanks!!!!hope 2 hrs is enough to do all these procedures!
I am first time international flyer I reach Boston airport at 2.00 pm, my next flight to Detroit is at 4.15. I will have hardly 2hrs in between. Is this enough for customs clearance and further checkin. Pls help me. I am travelling on 1st April
I will be coming in from Halifax, NS (Canada) on Westjet, and I have an 8 hour layover before my Qatar Airways flight to Doha, what are my best options to do in that time? On a side note does Logan airport require you to go through security again when coming in from Canada if I decide to not go into the city like in Philadelphia?
Westjet and Qatar Airways are in different terminals, so you'll have to go through security again anyway.
I will fly into BOS on Jet Blue and then depart 1 hour & 33 minutes later on Aer Lingus to Shannon. Is this enough time? I will check one bag which I know will go through. My concern is any delay on JBlue's end, deplaning and going from C to E terminal to board within the 20 Minute over seas requirement. Will I make it? It is a regularly posted flight combination.
Aer Lingus uses Terminal C in Boston, the same Terminal as JetBlue. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time if your first flight is on-time.
