You'll be fine going there. As you note, you'll pre-clear US Customs in Winnipeg, and barring exceptional circumstances (which I've never had to deal with in my 30+ years of flying back & forth across the US border) you won't interact with US Customs & Immigration agents in the Chicago airport at all. Effectively, your YWG–ORD flight will be ...

You are staying inside Terminal 1. I know I can walk from one end of Terminal 1 to the other at a very casual pace in 35 minutes (and not so casual a little less than 20, I did it before and I didn't even kill anyone en route :P frankly, it was more of a speedwalk than a mad dash). The official MCT (Minimum Connection Time) is just 45 minutes and you have ...

Even for me this would be tight and I have a NEXUS card, often flying business and a ton of experience moving through airports and not a baby in sight. The reason I am writing this up because people do not emphasize the baby enough. She/he will be very fussy after landing, the landing hurts their little ears. Hat tip: yawn at that them, they will copy and ...

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 ...

Oh heck no. The problem is, you have so many steps there, and a complication. It might have a chance if you were OJ Simpson (once most famous for moving through airports very quickly), but with checked bags and a baby on board, this is risky. You would have to a) do everything fast, b) do everything just right, and c) have everything out of your control ...

Based on my experience (including missing a flight, and getting stuck in an airport for an extra night without a visa to go out) anything less than 2 hours, that includes customs and border control involves risk of missing a connection and going through rebooking of the flights. There are many reasons why it may happen, that include suddenly longer lines, ...

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 ...

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 ...

Which airline are you flying on? Can you check in all the way to JFK? If you're using a different carrier for the second flight, they might require a document check to make sure you have an ESTA or US visa. In that case, you might need to go to a check-in desk. If you're checked in for both flights and there are no delays, 1.5 hrs sounds doable. If you're ...

According to the Madrid-Barajas Website you may transfer: From terminal T1 to terminals T2 - T3 through a free bus service connecting baggage claim hall 1 and baggage claim hall 2 in terminal T1, and baggage claim hall 6 in terminal T2. This connection can be done walking and you must go through security checkpoints, and takes around 10 minutes. (...

You can't say for sure but EU flights are normally not subject to security: Arrivals from EU, USA or Canada continuing to other international destinations are not generally subject to transfer security. All other international-international transfer passengers should clear transfer security. (Source) If the plane is late, it will be the airlines fault ...

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 ...

The minimum transfer time expected should be 1 hours and 15/30 minutes for an international to a domestic flight. If you arrive on an International flight and continue on domestic flight (or vice versa), the minimum time varies between 1h 15 min. and 1h 30 min. The longer time needed for domestic/international transiting is due to passing through ...

If your plane arrives on time, or a bit early, you should be able to make it but it will be tight. Any delay will make it harder. Arrivals from the UK are going through passport check in Dublin, then you need to collect your luggage, exit go to your new terminal and drop your luggage for the next flight, go through security and make it to your gate. Even ...
