Can anyone advise on a 1hr turnaround at CGK? Flying in on MU from PVG and turning around immediately on the same flight. Thanks!

Considering a MR to MAD with a turn around time in 40 mins. It's a TAP flight.

Anybody know the situation in Madrid, when arriving on a intra schengen flight? Can you upon arrival walk directly out in the terminal or are you forced to go through customs/bagage claim/security in order to return to the terminal area?

You should walk out to the same gate that would be boarding... It's a LIS-MAD-LIS? Just make sure you have your BP already printed, etc... Still feels tight especially if there are any Covid doc checks for Portugal at the time of your flight...

Yes, it would be LIS-MAD-LIS, but originating from CPH, so I would have been through LIS already. Not planning to go until later this year, so hopefully no doc requirements at that point.

Thanks for the info on the gate. Sounds like MAD is perfect for a MR tournaround then.

BA / AA transit via DUB

Flying LHR - DUB - PHI - SFO 11 June

BA flight lands DUB T1
AA flight to PHI departs T2

No transfer route so need to enter Schengen area - moderate line to enter Ireland in T1

Fast track service suspended T2 departures and huge lines (>45 mins) to clear security.

Luckily 3h connection time but would avoid this route for short connections until service improves.

How was Preclearance at DUB? Long lines? I haven't been in awhile but used Global Entry...

Not too bad - but lots of very stressed people who had been delayed in the main security line trying to race through.

Beyond that - all quite civilised.

When a Brit says "civilised" it just seems, well, that much more civilized.
