My international flight arrives in MCO (Orlando International) at 6:00 am. I must take another flight (MCO-JFK) at 7:25 am. Is that enough time to go through immigration, claim luggage and get to the boarding gate? I have already spent more than one hour in line for immigration at MCO, but I don't know if it is usual. If there is a long line, can I ask the officers to "skip" it?
I would say that you have a good probability to make it. Your flights are early in the morning so they are more likely to be on time and also the waiting time will be shorter in the checkpoints.
I would suggest you the following : 1/ Make yourself known by the company. If you have booked a complete itinerary with the same company, they will make what they can to make the connection happen as otherwise, they will be accountable to find a solution for you.
2/ If you see that the waiting queue is too long, check with the agents. Explain the situation with a smile and seek help from them. They will potentially direct you to the fast lane if any.
