POE information

22 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello again,

I have a couple questions about POE.  If there is a connecting flight which POE will they need to go through.  Ideally they will be flying into San Francisco or LAX and then have a connecting flight to Minnesota.  Which POE will they be going through?  Ideally having the POE in Minnesota would be ideal (will save on luggage cost in the long run).  I have looked at flights that have a layover in San Fran...2-3 hour layover but if they need to go through POE that will not be enough time.  

I believe for connecting flight you do not need to but would like to know others experiences and thought or knowledge on this.

 

Thank you

First airport within U.S. territory or U.S. proper is POE.   (exception be an airport or two in Canada)

 

closer to 4 hours is better to give adequate time.

POE (Port of Entry) will always be upon arrival to the United States.  Connecting flights are considered domestic.

I believe you would take Delta to have a POE in Minnesota.  Did the trip a few years ago from PI with fiancé on Delta to Manila to Narita to MSP for POE and then onto our final destination

I just took the Delta RT flights through Seattle to Manila.  Delta fricken sucks for international flights to and from Asia.

When my wife first came to the USA I flew with her to hope calm her fears. We ended up flying Delta through Minnesota and it was overall a good experience. I would fly through Minnesota again if I had the chance.

One option for MN POE is: Philippine Airlines from Manila to Haneda; then Delta from Haneda to Minneapolis.

yup aware, but wasn't trying to make a list, just making known there are exceptions.   And the OP is talking LAX of S.F.

A word of advice but I would stay away from SFO or LAX if you are going to have to make a follow on flight.

Denver is a very good POE ...  I have done Honolulu, Denver, Atlanta .. and I thought Denver was the best of them all.

I have had nothing but outstanding service from them from Asia, I have made about 20 round trip with them.

 

Why would you say that about Delta to and from Asia?  If you fly enough all airlines will have issues, just the way it is
