I am flying from Chicago to Paris CDG with a connection in Miami. All flights are on American, and I am not checking any bags. I've got about a 2 hour layover. I've never flown out of Miami internationally, so are there any specific logistics that I need to know about?
All you have to do on your way to Paris is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.
I am flying on american to Miami and then will be switching to Tap Portugal to Lisbon. When switching terminals will I have to Go through security again at MIA? 2 Separate reservations. Round trip from CLT-MIA & then Round trip from MIA-LIS on Tap Portugal. Don't Know If I have checked bags or not. Will have 7 people total traveling. How long would you recommend for a layover?
Yes, you will have to claim your bags from American, walk to the South Terminal, re-check them with TAP, and go through security. I recommend at least 2.5 hours.
I'm planning a trip that involves flying AA from New Orleans to Miami and then BA from MIA to LHR. It would leave me about 55 minutes to connect at MIA. Any idea if the gates would be close together and if this is enough time? I'm prepared to go 'cabin baggage only' if it makes the difference. Thanks
Baggage won't make a difference on the way to London. All you have to do in Miami is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. They probably won't be near each other but they will be connected inside security. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
HI, I have a connection in MIA with a lay over of 1hour and 10 minutes. My flight is coming from CTL and it goes to Bogota, Colombia. Is 1hour and 10 minutes enough to do the connection? Thanks!
I'm guessing you mean CLT (Charlotte) rather than CTL (Charleville, Australia). If that's the case then all you have to do on your way to Bogota is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
