My fiance and I are traveling from Nashville to Miami to Antigua. We are going to be on Delta for both flights and are not checking any bags. Will an 1 hour and 5 minutes be enough time for us ? I'm not sure what is required going OUT of the country. I know coming back in we will need more time...

Please double check your reservation - Delta doesn't fly from Nashville to Miami or Miami to Antigua. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.

It's American Airlines. I looked up so many flights yesterday I just accidentally said referenced the wrong airline- thank you!
Then yes, you have enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the way to Antigua.
I am traveling with AA from London to Miami however my plans have changed now and I am planning to buy a separate ticket with the same airline to Los Angeles. My flight gets to Miami at 14:25 local time, will i have enough to get on 17:44 one or shall I get 19:45?
Many thanks
Either one should work.

We are flying American Airlines from MIA to HAV. How early do we have to be at the airport? Thanks
2-2.5 hours before your flight to be safe.
Hi I am flying in to Miami from PHL, then from MIAMI to LIMA, Peru. I have one hour connection time. Is it sufficient?
Yes. all you have to do in Miami on your way to Lima is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate if both flights are on American.
Hi there - I arrive from London on VS5 into MIA at 1600hrs (in business class so off first) and need to connect onto AA domestic flight to EYW at Gate D60 departing at 1729hrs - With Global Entry and TSA precheck will I make it do you think?
With no bags and Global Entry you might have a small chance. You still have to run clear across the airport to get to your departure gate after clearing immigration and customs.
Arriving American Airlines from Toronto to Miami then connecting still with AA to Liberia Costa Rica. We are Canadian citizens and have about 2 hours to connect? Will we have to do the immigration/passport control? is 2 hours enough?
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Miami on the way to Costa Rica is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.
We are due to transit through MIA in a couple of weeks, landing from Nassau with Bahamas Air and departing for LHR with Virgin Atlantic, 2hrs25mins later.
We're UK (ESTA) passport holders, but I gather that we'll have to change terminals, so presumably need to clear customs (?) Do we have sufficient time?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Nassau, so all you have to do is claim your bags from Bahamasair, re-check it with Virgin Atlantic, and go through security. You should have enough time if the Bahamasair flight is on-time.
im traveling from Las Vegas to Lima Peru with a stop in Miami , i have an hour and 13 mins. of wait time i was wondering if that enough time from one fight to the next ? Would i have to recheck my baggage or does my baggage go straight to Peru
On your way to Peru you don't have to do anything with your bags in Miami. You have enough time.
Hi, I'll be traveling from SJU to MIA and then from MIA to MEX in following flights: SJU - MIA: American Airlines 1299, 1:52pm - 4:40pm
MIA - MEX: Aeromexico 413, 17:32 - 20:00

Do you think is enough time to switch terminals from American to Aeromexico?

Thank you!
Less than an hour to switch terminals? No I don't think that's enough time.
I am flying into Miami from Madrid on Air Europa and have another flight from Miami to Orlando on Delta. The time between flights is 1 hour 30 minutes. I am a US citizen and will not have a checked bag. Is it possible to make my connection in such a short time?
With no checked bags it's theoretically possible but VERY risky.
