Is 1.5 hrs enough of a layover at AMS to pass thru passport control? Flying from MIA and connecting from AMS to MAD. Thanks

Normally it would be, but they've had a lot of "operational" issues recently causing delays. If you have an option for a longer but still reasonable layover (3-4 hours), you might want to choose that just to be safe.

What if your flight from Miami is delayed?

I also heard the worst of the flight chaos this summer was in AMS (dunno when you’re flying but would want to add in some extra time just in case something like that happens again). I would probably try to find a flight with a 2 hr plus layover time.

It was seamless! Flight was delayed but security was very understanding.

AMS is the one of the worst ranked airports for a reason right now. Flew LAX-FIU with AMS as the layover. Flight was late leaving AMS to LA by 1 hr. Ran through airport as I heard passport could take 1-2 hrs, even worse if you had to pass through security (which could bump it to 3+). Luckily beat the crowd and got through in 5 minutes. But then flight to FIU got delayed from AMS 45 min. Then FIU to AMS was delayed 30min, flight to LAX got delayed 4 hrs. It was a mess. Flying direct or avoiding AMS from now on. Good luck homie.

I just flew through Amsterdam last week and was able to make it through passport control at 9am with no issues in under an hour.

Anecdotal, but I think you should be fine. They were also allowing people with quick layovers to skip the line. I’m sure at this point they’re trying their best to stay out of the headlines
