How much time will it take to get between the two airlines? Is it walkable or faster by bus? We will have baggage and know we have to collect bags then go thru security again. Time between flights is about 1hr 50 minutes
It's walkable. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I'm flying into BOS on Southwest, arriving Terminal A at 11:25am. How much time do I need to allow to get to Terminal B for Air Canada flight to Montreal? Is 1 hour enough?
Coming back, I know I'll need longer for customs. How long should I allow for transferring in reverse (Terminal B with Air Canada to Terminal A for Southwest)?
There is no US customs when leaving the US. However, you will need to claim your bags, transfer them to Air canada and re-check them, then go through security. I recommend at least 2 hours if you have checked bags and 90 minutes without.
1) I will not have checked bags, only carry-ons
2) How much time from Terminal A to Terminal B (leaving US) BOS to YUL?
3) How much time from Terminal B to Termina A (returning to US) YUL to BOS?
90 minutes both ways is possible, but 2 hours is preferable. As I said, the time is the same both ways as you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal when returning to the US and there is no US Customs when leaving the US (you go through Canadian immigration and customs in Montreal).
We will arrive terminal C with JetBlue from Charlotte and catch Icelandair flight to Iceland in terminal E. We have only 1.5 hours layover time and I am worried we won't have time to catch the Icelandair flight. Do we have to pass security check again from terminal C to terminal E or we can simply run to terminal E to catch the flight? Thank you.
There is a walkway inside security from C to E if your bags are checked through to Iceland.
If I'm arriving BOS from FCO on Delta at 4:37 p.m., hoping to take to a 6 p.m. flight on Southwest for home. No checked baggage. Will I have time?
That's not realistically enough time.
Will I be able to get from a Delta flight arriving at 11:25am to a JetBlue flight departing to ACK at 12:15; no luggage to check.
Am flying into BOS looking to catch a flight to ACK? Will have no luggage to check. If I arrive at BOS on a delta flight at 11:25am will I be able to catch a 12:15 flight on JetBlue to ACK
That leaves no time to spare. You will have to go from Terminal A to Terminal C and go through security.
Leaving Reykjavik (KEF) on Icelandair to arrive in Boston. Have a 3 hour 50 minute layover before flying to Pittsburgh (PIT) on Icelandair/Jet Blue. Does one need to claim luggage for customs when arriving in Boston and then check them in again at the next terminal for domestic flight to PIT?
Yes, in Boston you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, walk to Terminal C, go through security and to your departure gate.
I arrive on a WOW airlines flight at 5:30p and have to catch a United flight at 6:55p on a Thursday. I only have a backpack. Will I have enough time to catch my connecting flight?
That's barely enough time if the WOW flight is on-time and everything goes perfectly. Check in online for your United flight before you leave Iceland.
My daughter flies in on delta in terminal A and has to catch a flight on united in terminal c how does she get there and does she have to go thru security again.

The best way is to just walk between the Terminals. United uses terminal B, not C. Yes, she will have to go through security again.
My sister is flying into Detroit tomorrow from Manchester with a connecting flight via Boston to Detroit by Thomas cook. She has a five hour lay over at Boston. She only has her boarding pass for Manchester to Boston as it tells her to check in again at airport transfer desk. What does this mean exactly ?
There will be no transfer desk that can give her her Detroit boarding pass. She has to go to the JetBlue or Delta check-in desk (whichever airline she is flying). She has enough time.
