My 87 year old mother and I have a 50 minute layover from one gate B to another. Gates vary considerably from day-to-day. What would the longest distance be from one end of one leg of B to the end of the other B leg?
We have a layover for 5 hours in Phoenix. Don't want to be gone longer than a couple hours. We would arrive at Terminal 4 at just about 9am. Would the Desert Botanical Gardens be out of the question if we want to get back at least an hour and half before our flight out at 2pm?
Are there Phone charger outlets
I am flying from LAX to EWR with a 45 minutes connection in PHX. Is 45 min connection easily doable?
American Airlines AA561 from LAX to PHX and American Airlines AA1774 from PHX to EWR
I have a 4 hr layover in terminal 2 (arriving and departing flights are United.) Can I go to terminal 4 to shop/dine while I wait? Will I have to go through security and will I be able to since my flight is leaving terminal 2 not 4?
Is there a Catholic Mass pn Sunday mornings?
No, there are no religious services. It is an interfaith chapel.
April 4th: American 1783 from SFO with a 1:14 layover to get on AA 5902 (Canada Air) to Guadalajara. Is that plenty of time?
If not, how much would be? I'll do anything not to layover in Dallas or Houston!

Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 4.
We have a flight from DC to PHX on AA, that connects with a 45 minute layout. The connection flight is on Mesa Air, by American Eagle. IS there enough time for connection? Are they in the same terminal?
Yes, all American and American Eagle flights are in Terminal 4. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.
Going to be arriving in Phoenix at 11:03 p and my flight to Seattle leaves at 11:40 p. I know that is tight timing. Both flights are AA. Any idea on if that would be enough time to get from gate-to-gate in time? (barring any delays from the arriving flight)
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.
We'll be arriving from JFK with AA at 9:07 am, flying on to Palm Springs 10 am, enough time to make it?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
