Flying from Key West to MIA, then grabbing a flight from there to Toronto with time being under an hour. Email notification indicated there is a terminal change so now im in a sweat lol is it even possible to make this? Thanks
I will be arriving into Miami from DFW on American Airlines. I will need to pick up my luggage from baggage I have to take my bags to the Latam Terminal and Recheck them their. I will be gone for 3 weeks so I will not physically be able to carry everything. Besides the carts is there a skycap service i can pay who can help me transfer my luggage from one terminal to another? If so what is the charge?
There are skycaps but there's no guarantee you'll be able to find one. They work for tips. For that type of transfer I would pay $10 per bag.
We fly AA from Orlando to Miami . Our connecting flight to Guatemala City is also AA .
The flight schedule we have gives us 55 minutes from arrival (from Orlando) to catch the flight to Guatemala . This morning we read posts that said it is no problem since we are US citizens and connecting flights same airline ..we have hand luggage as well . Now we are getting somewhat concerned that time might be not enough...but we booked already ...Anybody has taken this or similar flights with AA and can share with us . Thank you.
That is enough time. All you have to do in Miami on your way to Guatemala is just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I am flying from JFK to MHH, Marsh Harbor Bahamas. Connecting through MIA. I am checking a bag at JFK. Does the bag go through to MHH in Bahamas, or do I have to retrieve it in MIA? My layover is only 55min (between 9:45-10:45AM). American Airlines. Will my bags make the connection? TNX
Yes, your bags will be checked through to Marsh Harbour. All you have to do in Miami on your way to the Bahamas is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time.
Will may bag make the connection too?
It should.
I am arriving from YYZ in American Airlines to MIA and then I have a connection with LATAM to Peru (LIM). How I can proceed as soon as arrive to Miami? thank you
If your bags are checked through to LIM you just have to walk from the North Terminal to South Terminal J and go through security. You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto on your way to Lima.
I am flying into Miami from Indianapolis on American in October. Final destination is Santiago, Chile. The transfer time listed is 2 hours, 20 minutes. Would that be sufficient? I wasn't sure if I remained in the same terminal, would have to re-check bags, etc.? Thank you.
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do on the way to Santiago if the second flight is also on American is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi,
I'm a Brazilian citizen and I'll arrive at MIA airport from Sao Paulo on a LATAM airlines flight on Tuesday at 6h55am. I'm in doubt if I should take a non-connection flight at 9am (United) or at 11am (Delta). I know that 11am is safer, since I will have to pickup my bags and pass through security and imigration, and check my bags again, but the flight at 9am if half of the price. Do you believe it's too risky to take the 9am flight? Thank you!
Yes, I think the 9 AM flight is too risky.

Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is go to the North Terminal and through security.
