Minimum connection time in BOS

Minimum connection time in BOS

  1. Anonymous

    [FONT=Arial]Hi all – My family and I are flying PIT – BOS – DUB in June. We are on Jet Blue for PIT – BOS and Aer Lingus for BOS – DUB. There was a schedule change and now we’re left with only 35 minutes to make our connection in BOS. It looks like our arriving and departing flights use the same terminal, but still I’m concerned about the tight connection time. We are on the last Aer Lingus flight to DUB that night so if we miss our connection, we miss one day of our vacation.

    With that in mind, is 35 minutes a feasible connection? We are young, fit and will have carry on bags only and can make a mad dash through the airport if needed.[/FONT]

    Your advice is appreciated!

    Are both segments on the same ticket or did you book separately? If you’re on the same ticket, you should contact jetBlue and asked to be moved to an earlier flight.

    If it’s separate tickets, I’d recommend paying change fees for an earlier flight. 35 minutes is already tight, even if it’s the same terminal. When you factor in possible delays, it could be a big headache.

    Hi David – thank you. You confirmed what I was thinking – that it’s best just to pay the change fee and move to another flight. We booked both flights on the same ticket through Aer Lingus. Hoping it won’t cost an arm and a leg but the peace of mind will be worth it.

    I’d get AerLingus [I]and [/I]jetBlue together on a 3 way call so that they can accommodate you.

    Was the schedule change to jetBlue’s flight?

  5. ineedavac

    Yes, the schedule change was to the JetBlue segment. On the original itinerary, we had about an hour to connect, which was still pretty tight, but 30 minutes is way too close for my liking. Looks like I’ll be spending my Saturday morning on the phone with the airlines 🙂

    Yep. Since AerLingus issued you the ticket, they should be able to reschedule the jetBlue flight. Or reroute you thru another one of their US gateways.
