Reply To: Minimum connection times – a question

Hi Canucklad

Just to add – the other half of MCT is Push Back time from the stand (normally departure time on ticket) – not gate closure time (otherwise no idea how Doha could do a 30 minute transit). Obviously somewhere like Doha where they offer such a short MCT – the airline has to be working with the airport to achieve this, otherwise it is ludicrous for an airline / airport to offer such a short connection. However if they offer a short MCT then it comes back to the question of the airline then taking some responsibility for it?
