This is only flight available to us. Seems crazy to me. Thoughts?

It's doable. What's your final destination? Due to the hurricane damage, there aren't many flights to St. Maarten anymore.
We r going to Anguilla. I am hoping that after doing this schedule for a while there will be some slight changes in schedule to give us extra time.
WE have an 1 hour connection from bwi to Georgetown are the gates close to each other. Also do we need to recheck our baggage
What airlines are you flying? If both flights are on American then yes, that is enough time as all you have to do on your way to Georgetown is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I failed to mention airline. Its American airlines with a connectint flight to ggt on American eagle. Are the gates in the same area?
Yes, they are in the same gate area (at least all the gates are connected inside security)
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.
We are flying from Omaha to MIA-we have one hour to change flights. Both flights are with American- will this be do-able?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.
How to go from baggage claim in North terminal to baggage claim in South terminal?
Follow the signs and walk. It's a bit of a long walk.
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.
hi, we have arrival from ZRH to MIA at 14.35 (swiss air). And we have next fligth at 17.10 MIA-to San Salvador (SAL) with Avianca. Two different airlines, two different tickets both separately.

I guess we need to go to pickup our luggage and do the check-in and all procedures again, rigth?
Is the connection time 2,5 hours enough to make it? thanx a lot
Yes you will also have to go through US Immigration and Customs. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

Hi,

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.
