Have Global Entry. Will be in BF coming in and most likely E+ going out. Can I make the connection without killing myself? This is one huge airport. Thanks.
Are you arriving from a pre-clearance station? If so, you are functionally making a domestic connection because you will have pre-cleared. If not, this is too tight even wuthout luggage. With luggage, it's likely you will miss the bag check cutoff even if you can physically make it to the gate.

Problem is these days that with capacity cuts, it's more than possible that the flight the next AM will be sold out. So no guarantee that if you miss your connection, you will be back on the originally-booked flight.
