For a normal international flight, the answer would be a clear "not a chance". However, your flight is different. Most flights from Canada (including yours) go through US immigration and customs in Canada, so functionally you are arriving on a US domestic flight. The gates you've mentioned confirm this - if it was a true international arrival it would ...

With a connection time of slightly under an hour, you're right that it's a possibility your bags won't make the connection. It's quite likely that your bags will be labelled (or marked in the electronic tracking system) as "hot", meaning "get this bag off the plane and onto the connecting flight ASAP". Re-checking your own luggage at Atlanta probably ...

Even without immigration and an infant it would be very tight on most airports. The time immigration takes does depend on the time of day and day of the week but also on your relative location in the queue/line and with a baby everything takes more time. I have been in an USA immigration queue for more than an hour with it being just one plane, different ...

When flying from Canada to the US from most major Canadian airports, you go through US immigration and customs at the Canadian airport from which you depart. This is called US preclearance and it is the procedure you have described in your question. When you physically arrive in the US on your flight, you will not see immigration again, because you have ...

I have been in Bristol Temple Meads many times, though I have not made connections there. Each track has stairs (there are also elevators) down to a tunnel (subway), and you can see signs in the tunnel pointing up to the other tracks. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Bristol_Temple_Meads_passenger_subway.jpg If your train comes in on time, you ...

I do not think this is a concern: transferring luggage is easy going, especially as your luggage will not have to be screened again since you are a domestic arrival. Moreover DL and KLM have a highly integrated system, and the airport in Atlanta handles more than 100 million passengers a year: barring some unexpected event if you can make it to the flight - ...

That's really quite tight and not something I'd be comfortable with, especially with checked bags and an infant (I might give it a shot with Global Entry, no checked bags, and no infant, but that's not your situation here). The minimum connection time is about 70 minutes, so you're right around the minimum the airline will even let you book. Keep in mind ...

Is the connection feasible? If you check the station map you can see it should be, there are only four platforms divided by trains and there's a subway (that's just a tunnel, it's just called a subway, to me a subway would be like an underground train but no, this is not a metro) between them. The signs are obvious and hard to miss. Everyone will flow there ...

To add to the other answers, every station in the UK has a published minimum connection time, and the booking engines won't sell an itinerary with a connection shorter than this. In my experience this is always reasonable, provided you're able-bodied and can follow signs. For Bristol Temple Meads it's 10 minutes. As an aside, if your incoming train is late ...

Frankly, there's not much you CAN do, and I would advise against re-checking your own luggage as this would make your connection tighter. Personally, I have had some really tight connections at busy hubs (50 min at DUB in Dublin, 1 hr at JFK in New York, and 1.25 hr at LHR in London) and I have never had any issues. Missed connections for luggage are the ...

Short of arranging a longer connection (which may involve the payment of change fees) or shipping your luggage ahead (which, itself, may be result in it becoming delayed or lost), there's not really anything you can do as a passenger to ensure your bags are transferred at your connection. They're supposed to be, and airlines generally do a pretty good job of ...

Dusseldorf Airport is not a very big airport. 55 minutes are well doable and the major obstacle will be the length of the non-EU passport check/immigration queue. But I would personally not worry about it as most passengers from Japan should have an easy case, which makes the queues move quickly. You will not share the queue with EU citizens, as they have ...

Be prepared to miss your connection. The airline will take care of you meaning meals and accommodation as necessary and required to rebook you on their next flight to Barcelona (if there are available seats). While they are not required to, they also might use another airline to get you to Barcelona quicker. They are more likely to do this with an airline ...

Montreal airport has a page you might find useful: United States-International After having gone through border control – primary inspection, you will be asked to follow one of two procedures: If your airline offers the option of automatically transferring your luggage, you will be directed to the international departures area. If your ...

The flight you're referring to flies from Singapore to Sydney, then on Canberra, then finally back to Singapore - picking up and dropping passengers at each stop. For passengers flying from Singapore to Canberra, you do NOT clear immigration or customs in Sydney. However you DO need to exit the plane and take all of your carry-on items with you. You'll ...

The airport has a handy online guide for this. I filled out the form using the information from your question and you don't need to pick up your bags (get them tagged to SJO when you first check in) or go through immigration. You will use a kiosk and swipe your passport. You will not have to change terminals. All of this adds up to 1:25 being plenty of time, ...

No, it's not possible. Update: having now done the trip just a few weeks ago, I can 100% confirm the answer is no. I asked officials in the airport if it was possible, and they said I had to leave air side, get the shuttle bus, then go back through security, which is what I did. Some more notes from my experience, to add detail to @yetanothercoder's very ...

American Airlines typically arrives in area B. Iberian typically leaves from area D according to the airport’s website. Both are terminal 1 but it is one of the longest transfer distances without a change of terminal building. Assuming you have checked luggage, the flow you will have to go through is: immigration checks, luggage reclaim, exit, go from area ...

It is possible but not certain if you are a reasonably healthy adult without heavy luggage. Step out of of the regional or rapid-transit train on the upper level. Take the stairs to ground level. Two minutes, maybe. Walk to on the ground level towards the stairs to the subway. That makes the difference, depending on which stairs you took from the upper ...

In principle you can be “interviewed” for any length of time at the point of entry. Granted, the immigration officers don’t necessarily want to waste their time and resources, but I’ve been questioned by immigration officers at times when I had to rush to connections because of late arrival, and it certainly felt like the questioning was quite time-...

Possibly, if you didn't have to re-check your luggage. Canadian immigration is pretty speedy. But it's a tight connection, and a small amount of bad luck could easily lead to a missed flight, and then you'd be stuck in Montreal overnight (a pleasant place to be stuck, but still). I would never ever try it unless it was a single-ticket, guaranteed connection. ...

Where exactly would I be clearing immigration? Munich. The LH agent must have misunderstood something. The MUC-TXL flight is an in-Schengen flight and there are no facilities to separate people cleared to be in Schengen and those who haven't so you must be cleared first. Your bags go all the way through, you will pick them up in Berlin, maybe that's what ...

As Copenhagen and Warsaw are both in the Schengen area, you will immigration in Copenhagen. Although you won't need to get you checked bags, immigration could still take a while, depending on when you arrive. If you booked both on the same ticket, your carrier has a responsibility to get you to Warsaw, so even if you miss your second flight (e.g. if your ...

Unfortunately as far as I'm able to find there is (still) no air-side transfer between terminal 3 and terminal 1. There is a shuttle service between the two terminals that you can take. It leaves every 15 minutes and should take about 15 minutes to get to the other terminal, worst case this means a travel time of 30 minutes if you just miss a shuttle. It ...

I'm guessing this is a United to United connection, in which case you might arrive into either Terminal B or Terminal C, although in either case the process is the same. You will need to go through immigration, collect your bags, go through customs, re-check your bag, catch the AirTrain to terminal A, go through security, and then get to your gate. Your ...

There are no turboprops flying United livery these days (nor Delta nor American); the ERJ135, ERJ140, and ERJ145 are all regional jets, not turboprops. That said, the smaller RJs can use the hardstand that was used for turboprop flights, accessed via the C130​n "virtual" gates (V–Z). Most of United's current operation in Terminal A is regional jets as well. ...

1:40 for an international to domestical connection at MEL is doable but risky, since Immigration and Customs can have long queues at times. However, all terminals are directly next to each other at MEL and you can easily walk between them, so once through the transfer will be quick and easy. There's also a special bag drop area for Qantas connections after ...

If you booked this itinerary as a single ticket in a single transaction, then you have adequate time to make this connection (although not a huge amount of time to spare). You do not need to claim your luggage nor pass through immigration, nor do you need to pass through a customs inspection. When you deplane in Terminal 5, follow the purple signs for "...

Air Canada note that 40 minutes is the minimum time, although they note this only applies for Air Canada/Jazz flights. I'd personally want to allow more time though
