Went through customs when leaving Aruba. Baggage ticket shows final destination is DFW. Do bags have to be claimed in MIA and rechecked to DFW?
No, since you cleared US Customs in Aruba all you have to do in Miami is walk to your departure gate.
I arrive from San Antonio at 11:08am and departs to Mar at 12:15 on 2 separate tkt, is it possible to make it
Where are you flying to? What airlines? Do you have checked bags?
Flying to BOG from GNV on two different tickets. I arrive in MIA at 4:45pm and depart on Avianca at 6:23pm. Is that enough time to make the connecting flights? Thank you!
That is fairly impossible with checked bags and barely possible without checked bags.
On a Monday, flying from Barbados at 3:50 pm to Miami landing at 7:48 pm on American Airlines and catching a connecting flight to Atlanta at 9:30 at terminal D .. will I make it?
Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
We arrive in MIA from PHX at 4:19pm. My final destination is Key West. A friend suggested bus service to the Keys as an economical option. The Bus departs at 5:45pm. Is this enough time to collect luggage and get to the bus (which has a pick-up station in the airport)

thanks in advance!
Yes, that should be enough time.
I will arrive at 7 pm, but my next flight leaves at 5:30 am next day, I am planning to go to the airside and to the AA lounge as early as I can, and how early can I go? and I am afraid of being denied by security in midnight. Thanks
You won't be allowed in until the morning. probably about 3:15 AM.
American airlines has changed our flight times. We've never been to MIA. Were departing DFW and arriving at MIA at 10:20am flight AA2336 then departing at 11:08 flight AA1028 to AUA, Aruba. That's 48 min. We fly out June 24th in two weeks so I don't have the terminal info..
That is enough time. All you have to do in Miami is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
We are departing from Las Vegas Flight 1674 at 11pm on American Airlines arriving in Miami at 7:07am with 3hrs 26mins stop-over, then departing again at 10:33am to Panama. Is this enough time to transit? Worried about the time difference affecting this... Would Expedia bookings show the time zone which ur entering or do we have to calculate the time difference ourselves?
Yes, that is plenty of time. Expedia bookings show the time of where you will be. All you have to do in Miami on the way to Panama is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank u! Appreciated...
We are travelling to STX from PHL with a 50 minute connection on American Airlines. Scheduled to arrive at D4 at 1114am (fingers crossed!) and depart out of E33 at 1205pm. This was booked as a legal connection on AA.com but I didn't realize at the time that there was a terminal change! What are our chances of making this connection? Thanks!
Yes, that is enough time. D and E are connected inside security by a walkway.
I'm flying on American Airlines Newark NJ to Quito, Ecuador arriving in Miami at 4:23 pm and going out at 5:40 again on AA, will I have enough time to make this connection?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Miami on your way to Quito is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
