Urgent Question: Connection time FCO (Rome) TLV
« on: July 03, 2024, 08:44:00 PM »
Hi All,

Urgent question (not to miss out on current flight bookings) -

Question: Arriving in FCO (from JFK w/ AA) - 7:15 a.m.

Next flight - separate ticket: FCO- TLV w/ ITA - 9:10 a.m.

Is this enough time for the connection (separate ticket & airline, check out, check in)?

Or better go w/ next flight: 10:00 a.m (El Al)?

I prefer less airport time, but want to ensure connection time is sufficient).

Return flight:

TLV-FCO - take off: 6:05 am, landing (fco) 8:45am - el al

or - take off: 4:45am, landing: 7:30

FCO-JFK (aa) 10:30 am

Again prefer less airport time (and later tlv departure), but is connection time efficient?

Many thanks for considering/responding to the question.

Without checked baggage you technically have enough time with the shorter connections. But you have an enormous risk of delay on the first flight and possibly forfeiting the second one. I would hesitate to even do the longer connection with luggage.
