  • time to make next flight
    Jul 11, 2016
    I will be traveling from London to EWR with my flight landing at 7:05 pm. I will not have checked bags. I booked my next flight to Dallas separately and it leaves from EWR at 8:47 pm. Will I have time to make my flight to Dallas if I have to go through customs? Since I booked my flight separately, will I be able to rebook if I do miss the flight at no cost? The booking agent assured me I would have enough time.


    If you miss your connection you will likely have to pay a same day change fee. This is a very difficult connection, even with no checked bags. What airlines are you flying?


    both flights are on United


    I am flying Lufthansa then changing to United Airlines. So you think it s likely that I will miss it? I am quite stressed about it as my friends are already in costa rica waiting for me


    Show your Dallas confirmation to the United agent in London and ask that your bags be tagged to Dallas, you'll still have to claim your bags to go through US Customs in Newark, but you'll already have both boarding passes and you can drop your bags right after clearing customs in Newark and you may be able to avoid paying the change fee if you miss your connection that way.


    I am only bringing a carry-on. Will I need to have my bags tagged? Also, I have registered with Mobile Passport to expedite things.


    If you aren't checking a bag then you can probably make your connection - Check in for your flight to Dallas online before you leave London.


  • transfer terminal B to C in 2 hours 15 min
    Jul 11, 2016
    I will arrive at terminal B at 15:45 from Frankfurt (LH 402 ) and have to change to terminal C to catch my flight to San Jose ( UA 1082 ) at 17:59. So I will have around 2 hours 15 min to do all the procedure,and I am not an american citizen. Will it be enough? Are there any tips to do ? I payed an extra Premier Access for my united airlines flight so that it might speed up the check-in. Thank you!


    You won't have to check in again in Newark if both tickets are on the same reservation. You will just go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the AirTrain to Terminal C, go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Thank you for your answer! ( Sorry at first I answered the conversation above...but now i have seen that doesnt relate me)


  • Connecting time
    Jul 11, 2016
    Flying from Panama (Flight UA1022). Arrive to EWR at 3:50PM Connecting flight at 6.35PM (UA134) to Zurich. Same reservation with UNITED. I have checked baggage. 2 hours and 45 mins is enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the AirTrain to Terminal C if you arrived in Terminal B, then go through security and to your departure gate.


    Many thanks. I guess flight UA1022 will arrive in Terminal C. UA134 will leave from terminal C as well. So after clear the US Customs, I have to re-check the baggage and go through security?


    Yes, that is correct.


  • Transfer from terminal C to B via shuttle bus?
    Jul 10, 2016
    Hi there, I am looking for information if it's possible to take the shuttle bus from terminal C to B. The United website shows a stop at terminal B but I saw many comments that the bus shuttle only runs between terminal A and C, no stop at terminal B. Thx in advance.


    It does go to B, but it only stops in the satellite that the Star Alliance carriers use. Unlike Terminal C where every gate is connected inside security, in Terminal B the three satellites are not connected inside security. If you are more specific about the connection you'd like to try I can help you more.


    Thanks ZAP! I'll arrive at TC with UA3466 and depart at TB with LX19 - so it's Star Alliance. Looks the shuttle bus works for me then? How often does it run and how long does it take to get from TC to TB?


    Yes, it should work. It will probably take you about 20-30 minutes to get between gates.


  • India to Minnesota Enough Connect Time??
    Jul 9, 2016
    I arrive 5AM EWR Term C on United UA38 - customs, foreigners line, re-check 1 bag, then fly out 6:30AM on Term C United UA3357. Do we go thru LONG Security again? is the time ok? or, do i opt for 5 hour layover to same destination?


    90 minutes is not impossible because of the early morning arrival, but it doesn't leave much time to spare.


    Jul 9, 2016


    Yes. 3hr is enough time at EWR. There is no terminal 4. It will be A,B, or D.


    EWR does not have a Terminal 4. What airlines are you flying and where are you coming from?


  • GVA - EWR - TPA
    Jul 8, 2016
    Hi, we are fliying from GVA to EWR. Arriving at EWR at 12:15pm. Connecting flight to TPA at 3:00pm. We have 2h45 layover. Do we have enough time to clear immigration and customs?


    Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Jul 8, 2016
    hi i am travelling from BHX-EWR the flight times say we will arrive in EWR at 11:55 we have a connecting flight to ORLANDO at 13:20 we land in terminal B and get the connecting flight in terminal C. is this realistic to do? all was booked with united airlines surely they cant sell tickets if you cant make it on time? will we have to wait for our bags even though we only have 1 hour 25 mins ?


    This is not realistic. Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security. The bare minimum is 90 minutes with 2 hours recommended.


    are they really allowed to sell tickets if its not realistic? its all with united airlines so i thought they wouldnt sell the tickets if its not realistic? so if we miss the connecting flight which it seems like were going too will they put us on another? thanks


    Yes, if you miss your connection they will book you on their next available flight to Orlando.


  • Southwest to United
    Jul 7, 2016
    I am flying southwest to Newark getting in at 5:00pm and leaving to Lisbon on United at 8:25pm. If I carry my bag on, will I have to go back through security regardless? If so, i might as well check it. Thoughts?


    Yes, you will have to go through security regardless because you will have to change terminals. Not checking a bag still saves you time since you don't have to wait for it at baggage claim or wait in line to check it again. You should have enough time either way though.


    Thank you!


  • Will I make my connection?
    Jul 6, 2016
    Hi, just looking for a little advice really, I'm flying Newcastle (GB) to Newark and then onto to Orlando-both flights are with United Airlines and the connection time is 2hrs 30 mins and at the moment we arrive and depart from Terminal C. I guess my question is: is this enough time to make the connecting flight? Having never transited through America before I'm not sure about the waits for immigration etc!


    Note that you may arrive in Terminal B. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the airTrain to Terminal C if you arrived in B, then go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.


  • Realistic connection times?
    Jul 6, 2016
    I'm looking to book a flight on Aer Lingus from Detroit to Dublin via EWR and I'm concerned about the connection times: - The ticket is United from Detroit to EWR. The connection time for the ASL Airlines (Aer Lingus) flight to Dublin is 1h17min. - I'm returning Dublin to EWR on ASL (Aer Lingus) with a connection time of 1h58min to get a United flight to Detroit. Are either of these connection times possible? I'm assuming they are cuz the airline is selling it to me as one ticket, but it seems to be cutting it close. Thanks.


    On the way to Dublin it's very difficult because you have to change terminals and go through security. On the return the process is the same because you pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin, but you have more time so it's a bit more reasonable.


  • connections, check in, baggage, security, terminal change
    Jul 6, 2016
    Hey! I have a question , I'll travel from Stockholm to New York 15/11 and on to New Orleans in November , I have 2 hours 30 minutes for me to the flight , in New York (Newark ) and then further from Newark to New Orleans . Do you think I have time for the flight to New Orleans with so little time ? With passport control and security check and get out and check in my luggage ?


    Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Connection time for an international flight in the same terminal
    Jul 5, 2016
    Is one hour enough to connect two flights Seattle to Newark and then from Newark to London from Terminal C. The flights are operated by United Airlines.?


    Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Seattle is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Many thanks


  • United terminals A and C
    Jul 5, 2016
    Never done this before. Connecting flight and I thought it was all terminal C but I land in A and take off from C. Both United flights. Any help with this? Do I have to leave A, find my way to C and check in again?


    You do not have to check in again. United runs a shuttle bus inside security between their gates in A and C. As long as you have more than 45 minutes and your first flight is on-time you can make this.


    Thank you


    Well lovely. I had another reason to call United and then asked the rep about the switch in terminals thinking it would be an easy call. According to her we have to leave terminal A with all that involves then get to terminal C and go through the entire check in process all over again.Not happy.


    The person you talked to has no clue what they are talking about. The Shuttle inside security exists. It's even on United's map on their website - https://www.united.com/web/en-US/content/travel/airport/maps/ewr.aspx United phone agents are woefully undertrained about how airports work (most of them have never even flown before).


  • Toronto to New Delhi via Newark. Are 1.50 hr enough for transfer?
    Jul 4, 2016
    I am traveling from Toronto to New Delhi via Newark with a check-in bag. Would like to know if 1.50 hr are enough for the transfer before I book my flight. Thanks


    If both flights are on United then that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto, all you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, and United operates a shuttle inside security from Terminal A where you arrive to Terminal C where you depart.
