  • Connecting flight Dayton to LHR
    Jun 8, 2014
    My wife is travelling alone from Dayton with United Express to EWR with a 70minute period to connect with a UA flight to LHR. Will her bags go straight from the UE plane to the UA? Will she go through customs at EWR? She is worried there will not be enough time. The tickets were booked as a package.


  • Connection Procedure & Time
    Jun 7, 2014
    My wife is travelling alone on a UA booking from LHR to Dayton via IAD on Monday 16th June. The UA inbound arrives at 1055 and the outbound with United Express leaves at 1229. The tickets were booked online, together as a priced package. I want to understand the procedure on arrival, wheher she needs to collect bags, likely Concourses, transit arrangements and whether the time allowed is enough. She is quite nervous of the whole trip and it will help (us both!) if I can set out exactly what and where she needs to do/go. Sadly we have, in ignorance, booked her a seat at the back of the aircraft from LHR so she may be a while disembarking. ANY help most welcome. Thank you.


  • International to domestic
    Jun 3, 2014
    I have booked my flights from HYD-DXB-IAD on one ticket and IAD-CRW United Airlines on another ticket. Transit time between flights at IAD is 3 n half hours. Since I have two separate tickets, do I need to re-check in? and if I need to re-check in, can I find recheck and ticketing counters right after the customs in IAD or do I need to go to any specific area in the airport to find the United Airlines counter(since I have to get boarding passes for United flight)?


  • Arrival
    Jun 2, 2014
    I am arriving via Air Canada from Montreal mid morning and meeting a friend who is arriving via Air Canada from Toronto shortly after approximately 30-45 minutes later. Both with carry on luggage. Any suggestions where we can meet would be appreciated. Not sure as to which terminals we will be arriving at. Thank you.


  • Re-Checking Baggage at ORD
    Jun 2, 2014
    Arriving at Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US customs, then re-check your bags.. Is all this done in Terminal 5 even if your next leg was purchased on a separate booking.. Or will I have to depart T5 with my luggage and find the AA Departure Counter? Thanks for any help


  • Arrival time
    Jun 2, 2014
    I have guests leaving DTW on a 6:00 a.m. American flight to Miami. One of the two guests will continue on to the Dominican Republic on another flight. What time do they need to check in for their flight? Two hours doesn't seem right as the airport is usually deserted at 4:00 a.m.

  • traveling between united and lufthansa concourses
    Jun 1, 2014
    We are flying from SFO to Dulles and have a very long layover in Dulles before going on to Rome. We are flying United but we have access to the Lufthansa lounges which I'm told are in a different concourse. Will we be able to go into a concourse that our connecting flight is not departing from? Or, will TSA block that? Thanks for any help.

  • Transfer from AA domestic to Etihad international time
    May 26, 2014
    I will be arriving on Etihad airlines operated by American from DFW and need to fly to Abu Dabi on Etiahd with only 2 hours between flights. I have no idea what to do---can anyone help me---will I have enough time?


    You will arrive in Terminal 8 and your Etihad flight will be from Terminal 4. Your bags should be automatically transferred. All you need to do is go from T8 to T4 via the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train, then go through security and to your departure gate.


  • Enough time?
    May 24, 2014
    I am travelling from IST-IAH, and need to book a flight from IAH to dallas. Is 1 hr 45min enough time to clear customs, get luggage, check-in for my new flight and get to the boarding gate? If not, my other option (which is more expensive, so I'm trying to avoid it) gives me 2 hs 15mins. Is that enough time to clear customs, get luggage, check-in, etc...?? I don't know if it helps, but I will be travelling business on turkish airlines, so maybe there is a special line through customs for business class passengers? Also, i'm an american citizen, so maybe that will speed things along too. Thanks for the help!!!


    While you arrive with Turkish at Terminal D (TD) under today's departure listings United flies from IAH to DAL (that's the domestic Dallas terminal close to the city) - no listing for DFW - the internat'l Airport. If you buy a United Airline ticket (both Turkish & United are Star Alliance members) your bags should be automatically transferred after customs clearance & baggage re-check. Can't tell you which Concourse your connection will be (United is the only one using all Terminals, other than TD). For Arrivals procedure & transfers I suggest you open then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • T5 to T4
    May 26, 2014
    We will be arriving at T5 (domestic), then depart again from T4 (international). Our friend will drop off his child to travel with us. Q: 1.Can he enter the T4 lounge (he doesn't have ticket)? if not, where is the best place to meet him? 2. Can we wait at T5 lounge for few hours before moving to T4 (we have 9 hrs layover)? How about the luggages? Thanks!


    If his child is traveling he can request a gate pass a the airline ticket counter in T4. Yes, you could also wait in the arrivals area of T5. Luggage depends on what airlines you are flying and whether you bought your tickets together or separately.


    Thank you! Yes, the child is the only one that will travel with us, is the gate pass located before the security check? And can the parent wait inside the T4 lounge/restaurant area? We bought the ticket together under the same airline which is SQ, but for the domestic flight, they use Jet Blue..Thank you!


    The parent should go to the Singapore Airlines ticket counter to get the gate pass.
