It depends on a number of factors, but I'd say that the odds of you making this connection is very low. 85 minutes just isn't realistic for such a connection in most cases at SFO. UA862 from HKG hits SFO right on peak hour. In the hour before it lands there are at least 5 other flights arriving at the same terminal, and feeding into the same immigration ...

In addition to what's mentioned in the other answer, there is one extremely important thing the airline will do to help: if you miss the connecting flight due to late arrival and/or customs delays, they will put you on a later one. (Note this applies only because you have booked the flights on a single ticket.) SFO and IAD are both United Airlines hubs, ...

Generally, that is enough time; 95% you will make it easily. However, there could always be a snafu on the day, but even having 3 hours doesn't securely protect you against that. If you booked in on one ticket, the airline will help you if needed, like pulling you to the front of the line, driving you over through back-corridors, or have the connection ...

Most itineraries returned by google maps will have you take a bus from the last RER (train) stop in Paris (RER B station Saint-Michel Notre-Dame). One itinerary suggests taking the "Le Bus Direct Ligne 2" from CGG to Champs-Elysée-Étoile, then the city bus line 92 that will drop you 50 meters from your hotel. (https://goo.gl/maps/E6YB7p4XpRC2) The "Le Bus ...

Assuming you are referring to these shuttles http://www.mtr.com.hk/en/customer/services/complom_free_bus.html the answer is probably yes. I use them frequently and there is no kind of ticket or access control that I'm aware off. You just hop on at the hotel (or the station) and get off wherever you want. You don't need any MTR ticket or any sort of proof ...

Terminal 1 (Irish Ferries & Isle of Man Steam Packet Company) is the furthest out. I’ve walked it from Dublin City Centre, and it is possible, but it’s not a pleasant walk, nor a short one. Confusingly, Terminal 1 is also called “Dublin Ferryport”. It appears under this name on the Dublin Bus timetable and in rail timetables which include ferry services. ...

Original Poster posting the experience this time. The airline paid for the transfer. You have to ask for it. I arrived at the SHA airport terminal 1. Took the free bus shuttle to T2, took 15 mins. (Shuttle to PVG only runs from T2) Went to the China Eastern Airlines Check In Desk. Asked for a bus pass to PVG airport. They gave me one after checking my ...

As per the Uber fare estimator, it costs around $50 to take an UberXL (larger version of a taxi, since I assume you will need a lot of space). There are public transport options, but they will cost at least $40 for a group of four and therefore not cost-effective.

Whenever you are given a time range like this for something like a shuttle, it means that they expect to arrive to pick you up somewhere within that range - and thus you should be ready before the initial time stated. As well as being common sense, this is also clearly stated on the Supershuttle Website The vehicle should arrive within the 15-minute ...

Another reason, beyond the excellent ones already discussed here, is that public transit is typically subsidized by government, often both by direct annual contributions to the transit agency's budget, and by issuing debt for capital expenses that is slowly paid off by some combination of the agency and the government. For operating expenses (not counting ...

With SFO and BART, there is a significant surcharge for using the airport station; it is cheaper to travel further down the line. (From the station I use, the fare is now about $9.00; from downtown San Francisco it is less.) Some reasons: the station had to be retrofit into the airport. And the airport wants the money, because it turns out they make more ...

Speaking from personal experience, I would strongly warn against this. I had once a ticket from Raleigh, NC to JFK with American Airlines, where, 2 and a half hours later I was to change over to Air France and continue on to Stuttgart via Paris. The lady at the check-in in Raleigh happily recorded all my flight numbers so I wouldn't have to pick up the ...

Unfortunately, there is no "usually" in this scenario. Luggage transfer is only possible if there is a baggage interlining agreement, and only available if there is a specific policy allowing it. For example, some airlines allow intra-alliance throuch-check on separate tickets, some only allow it on same airline, and some disallow it altogether. It is ...

I live ~10 minutes from Dulles (IAD) and ~45 minutes from Reagan (DCA), and have flown in and out of both airports. IAD is a more organized airport, but it's farther from the city. It may not seem like a great distance, but traffic here is the worst in the US. Traveling even short distances around here can take a long time, and cost a lot of money if you ...

If you have a choice without any other considerations (i.e. similar price, time etc.), DCA is much closer to the center of the city than IAD. About 10 minutes versus 45 minutes driving (may vary with traffic). DCA is, however, a domestic airport. If you are flying in from abroad (as you say you are), you will be connecting somewhere else in the US to end at ...

In case you are reading this in 2020, just take the hyperloop :) One of the companies vying to make Elon Musk's transportation dream a reality has signed a deal with the government of Slovakia to explore building a three-country Hyperloop. Crowdsourced engineering project Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) will look into a route that links three ...

There are two companies running a direct bus connection between the airports. Flixbus. Their bus #910 runs once per hour and takes 60 minutes. A single ticket costs 5EUR (or 7.5EUR, depending on the time), pre-bookable on their website. Postbus. Their bus #1195 runs once every two hours and takes 75 minutes. A single ticket costs 8EUR, with no reservations ...

I've been experimenting with this and current operational conclusion is jump on the Piccadilly line straight to Heathrow. The Heathrow "express" is very good, but a long walk from departure to the termninals and a taxi or Tube from KC. By the time you've added up all the moving, I'm not sure it's an Express option after all.

The important question that you haven’t answered is ‘where is your flight going?’ (intra-Schengen, extra-Schengen or to the US) Adria Airways suggests intra-Schengen, but I’ll focus on both points. Depending on the time of year, whether it is one of the seasons in which German railways often experience problems (badmouting would say these seasons be winter, ...

The quickest way seems to be : From the airport, take RER B, get off at the "Châtelet-Les Halles" station From Châtelet-Les Halles, take the subway 7 going to "Mairie d'Ivry" and get off at "Pierre et Marie Curie" It should take about 1h15, price should be in the vicinity of 15€ (need confirmation). Be aware that Châtelet-Les Halles is a pretty big ...

The Paris transport operator, RATP has a journey planner on their website. You can input your start point, end point, and start time, and it will suggest routes to you. If you don't want to worry about the bus, you can restrict it to rail (so Train, RER and Metro) only. Make sure you search for Aeroport or similar as your start point however, as France is ...
