It's worth considering. There is no such thing as perfectly "safe" in this regard, only varying levels of risk. Typically the airline will allow enough time that the transfer can be made, including luggage, etc, if the first flight arrives on time and everything goes as planned. But it's not a guarantee. If the first flight is delayed for any reason (which ...

There is no absolute answer to this question. In theory, the airline does not like missed connections because they have to find some way to re-accommodate you to your final destination, so they have every incentive not to schedule connections that are too tight to make. In practice, there are lots of missed connections every day, especially when the first ...

Australia has a kind of quasi-visa very much like the US own ESTA, called Electronic Travel Authority. US citizens have to apply online in advance and pay a fee if they want to enter the country, even for a short visit. But if you are only transiting through an Australian airport, don't need to leave the transit lounge and will leave within 8 hours of ...

You will not have much leeway time, as your arriving flight and departing flight will be out of two different concourses. Flights to Jackson Hole on SkyWest fly out of the E concourse and your arriving flight will likely be at either D or C (Delta uses some gates in B as well). 34 minutes is enough time to get from one to the other, but you won't have ...

TL;DR: You're fine. Long version: You appear to be confusing ESTA with the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), which is common, because this is confusing. ESTA is a pre-authorization that lets you board flights to the US, nothing more. One ESTA is valid for two years and permits unlimited flights to the US. The VWP is a program that lets citizens of certain ...

I came through SLC recentley. Yes, that's enough time if everything is on time. My Delta flight out was actually held for 10 minutes or so for late transfers - but this was the last flight of the day, so may not be normal policy. I'd advise that as you leave the first flight, you find a Delta representative and explain to them your situation. They may just ...

You will have to change planes. If you're lucky, the two planes will be in the same airport terminal, and you can just hop off one, and run to the other, and catch their final boarding. 34 minutes isn't much time at all. Typically, boarding ends 20 minutes before take-off, so if the second flight is running on time, you'll have roughly 14 minutes to make ...
