I've got a connection in MCO with a 1hr 35mins limit between an incoming Virgin Atlantic flight from Manchester and an outgoing Delta (Operated by Virgin Atlantic) to Atlanta. If i've read the MCO website correctly it looks like both flights use Airside 4. How will this work with immigration etc? Do I need to leave Airside 4? Its all on 1 ticket if that helps.
will be arriving from Lima Peru by Latam airlines, connecting to Air Canada , how to get from one terminal to next and is 2 hrs enough time, as I think I will have to collect luggage and recheck in?
We fly into MCO from ATL on Delta (still two weeks away, and they keep changing the flight number, currently saying it's 2066). Arrive at 6:40 p.m. Depart on Virgin Atlantic VS16 at 7:50 p.m. for London. Just 1 hr 10 min layover. We have only small carry-on bags. Best I can tell, Delta and Virgin both use gates 70-99, so we shouldn't have to leave Airside 4, just dash from one gate to another, unless there are hoops to jump through on account of it being an overseas flight. We are TSA Pre-checked. I seem to recall having to ride an elevated tram when making this connection last summer, but I may be mis-remembering. Anybody know?
We will be on United from SFO, arrive 7:35 AM then connect to Bahamasair to Nassau, departure 10:00 AM, different bookings, but no checked in luggage. Assuming the first flight is on time or may be 30 minutes late, will we have enough time to move from arrival gate, thru TSA, to departure gate. Thanks for your help.
Hi. I recently moved to Atlanta but have a flight coming from Lisbon to Philly to Orlando via American where I land in Orlando at 9:30 p.m. I will not have a checked bag, but i was wondering if I could make a connecting flight on Southwest from Orlando to Atlanta departing at 10:30? Can i get to each gate easily or do I have to get out and go through security again?
I fly from IAH(Houston) to EWR(NewYork) and my connection is at MCO. I have only 35 minutes to catch my connection flight and I worry if this time is enough? Both flights are with Spirit.
I am travelling from London Gatwick (LGW) to Charlotte (CLT) via Orlando. The London to Orlando leg with British Airways (AA code share) arrives in Orlando at 15:30. The connecting flight from Orlando to Charlotte with AA departs at 17:08. I have one booking reference for all flights with AA. Can someone give me some guidance about my route through Orlando as I understand I will need to re-check my baggage as well as going through immigration with about 90 minutes to connect?
you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US CUstoms, re-check your bags, go up to the departures level, through security and out to your departure gate. You should have just enough time.
Thank you ZAP.
Flying in with LATAM and connecting to Southwest. Once reunited with checked bag at customs, where would one drop their bag if connecting on Southwest and how far/long will that take to get to?

Also, is global entry fairly efficient in MCO? AT most major airports, i'm usually through in 5 minutes once off the plane.
You have to take your bags to the regular Southwest check in desk in the main terminal. it's about a 5-10 minute walk. Global Entry should be pretty quick.
Hello, we are flying from Dubai with Emirates and then intend to connect to Cancun one and a half hours later with Jet Blue, is this enough time?
With carry-ons only I think you can make it if everything goes smoothly but it leaves no time to spare.
I am travelling in July from London Gatwick to MBJ via MCO and CLT with AA. The LGW to MCO leg is operated by British Airways (AA code share) and arrives MCO at 15:30. The connecting flight from MCO to CLT departs at 17:08. I have one booking reference for all flights with AA. Can someone give me some guidance about my route through MCO as I understand I will need to re-check my baggage as well as going through immigration? I am travelling with 3 children so would like to be as prepared as possible particularly as the layover is about 90 minutes.
