1hour 50min connection FCO, enough time?
I am looking at a flight on Alitalia that lands in Rome (FCO) at 7:55am and departs 9:45am. Is that enough time to make the connection?

First, where are the flights coming from and going to? Will this be your first landing in Schengan and will you have to go through Immigration?

Second, is this one ticket? If so, they they are responsible for getting you to your destination if you miss the second flight. If it's two separate tickets and you miss the second flight you're on your own to find another flight.

Im flying ORD to FLR via FCO. I'm booking with one site at the same time, so I'm assuming that its "one ticket".

Hi ab,

IIRC, you will arrive at FCO C and depart from FCO A.

Your domestic flight will probably want you to check in about 1/2 hr before flight time.

You should make it.

However, on one flight into FCO, it took over an hour for our suitcase to arrive.

You should be fine; suitcases should be checked through so no worries there..

Hi ab,

ek is right. Your suitcases should be checked through.
