  • flying United from Houston to Newark to Delhi
    Oct 15, 2014
    My mom will be flying from Houston to Newark and then connecting to New Delhi. She has 3 hr connection time. She will also have wheel chair assistance. I am worried that 3 hrs will not be enough - i just don't know. Will she be able to check luggage in Houston all the way Delhi or will she have to collect luggage in Newark and recheck. She is 83 and traveling by herself.


    3 hours is a TON of time. She will not have to collect her luggage in Newark. She will be fine.

    I am arriving from MEM on UA into TA and connecting to LHR on VS from TB and only have 90 minutes to connect. Will that suffice?


    Did you purchase one ticket or separate tickets? Will you have checked baggage? With one ticket you should have plenty of time, as all you have to do is take the AirTrain between terminals, get your boarding pass, and go through securrity. With separate tickets and checked baggage it may be difficult getting to TB in time to re-check your baggage with VS.


    Its separate tickets and yes, I will have checked baggage. I guess it will be safer if I get an earlier flight. Thank you :)


  • EWR Terminal A to EWR Terminal B
    Oct 4, 2014
    My flight arrives on Terminal A Gate 26, & My connecting flight departs from Terminal C, Gate 108, & I am having 1 hour duration for transit, what is the quickest path I can approach, shall I take a shuttle or air train.


    By taking the United shuttle bus you avoid having to go through security again. So do that.


  • Connecting flights Terminal C
    Oct 4, 2014
    I am arriving from Ottawa in Terminal C and have to board my connecting flight to SFO in Terminal C. I believe I will clear customs in Ottawa. My connecting time is 44 min. Will I have to collect my bags and is this enough time?


    Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Ottawa. Also there is a good chance your Ottawa flight will arrive in Terminal A. If so you will have to take the United shuttle bus to Terminal C for your flight to SFO. You will not have to take your baggage. If you arrive in A it will be tough to make your connection, but possible. If you miss your connection it's not a huge problem as United has many EWR-SFO flights.


    Thanks! My ticket says that we arrive and depart from terminal C - fingers crossed!


    That information is commonly wrong, don't be surprised if you arrive in Terminal A.


  • Connection 80 minutes from BRU - EWR - MCO
    Sep 30, 2014
    Hey ! I will arrive @ EWR on Monday 12.20 PM with United Airlines from Brussels I will need to catch my transit flight to MCO @ 1.40 PM . Which gives me 80 Minutes - reading the above comments worries me that won't make my connection flight .


    Yes, that is below the minimum International->Domestic connection time at EWR by 10 minutes. You can contact who you booked the ticket through, notify them of that, and ask to be rebooked on a later flight to Orlando, or you can try it, it's certainly possible, and if you miss it you will be rebooked on the next flight to Orlando. United has many Newark-Orlando flights.


    Thanks a lot - I recently had a bad experience at Dulles . Customs took me 2 hours and 45 minutes


  • Is 2 hours enought time EWR to MCO?
    Sep 28, 2014
    We're arriving from Glasgow, Scotland into EWR on Icelandair flight (Terminal B?) at 19.00 - then out to MCO with United at 21.00. Will the 2 hours be enough time to make the connection?


    On arrival at Terminal B of EWR, you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bags. NOTE: While Iceland will Arrive at Terminal B (TB), United uses TC for its departures (check-in levels 2 & 3), while United Express uses both TA & TC for its departures. If you bought separate tickets find out if Iceland will transfer your bags to your United flight - if not, you need, after Customs clearance, pick up your bag & check it in which United or United Express. If you need to transfer from TB to TC, you need to take the AirTrain (follow signs), but will have to go through security check at TC before proceeding to connecting gate. 2 hrs. transfer time should be enough. Be warned - TSA arrivals process can be trying at EWR (rude personnel there) - keep you cool!


    Thanks for such a comprehensive and informative reply, Susep14. I'll contact Iceland first thing in the morning to find out if they would transfer our bags to our United flight - I had no idea that there was even the possibility of such an arrangement between airlines. Do you know if there is any way I can establish which terminal the onward flight will be leaving from, other than phoning UA? Thanks again.


    Your flight to Orlando will leave from Terminal C. Even if you can get your bags tagged through to Orlando you will still have to claim them to go through US Customs.


    Thanks Zap. If I can't get the baggage tagged through to MCO, should I be able to get through passport check on arrival at TB, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance, re-check-in bags and get to the boarding gate in TC in under 2 hours ? It sounds like a lengthy procedure.


    It's doable but it will be tough.


  • Making a connecting flight within terminal C
    Sep 26, 2014
    Please help! I'm beginning to worry about the time it will take to to make my connecting flight. I arrive from BHX into EWR 11.55 on a United Airlines flight landing in Terminal C. My connecting flight leaves EWR from Terminal C at 13.29. It has been sold to me as a legal connection.... will I get through all the checks in time? Also what is the procedure that I need to go through? Is everything signposted? Will I have time to ask for help if I need it? I could really do with a to do list with locations and approx timings!!! Thanks.


    Yes, that is a legal connection. The first part is very simple. You will arrive and be funneled towards US Immigration, then you will claim your baggage then go through US Customs, then re-check your baggage. Then you will go up to the departure level and through security and to your departure gate.


  • International Arrival @ EWR to BNA: 75 minutes?
    Sep 27, 2014
    United just changed my Dec. 18 connecting flight to Nashville to an earlier time, making what had been an almost 3 hour layover an hour and 15 minutes. We are coming in from Germany. I called and they assured that 1 hour is the minimum to get through customs and take care of luggage. I am not so hopeful and do not want to spend the night at their airport. I'd rather be with my family, much further South. Any thoughts or recommendations?


    #2 under "getting around on the terminal map page tells international arrivals "To get to your connecting flight, take the Airtrain which serves all pre-security areas of all terminals." (http://www.ifly.com/newark-liberty-international/terminal-map) Pre-security? Does that mean we would have to go through security again? That's going to take some time.


    Upon arrival at Terminal B or C, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check your bags with United. Then if you arrived in a terminal different from your departure terminal, you will take the airtrain to your departure terminal, then you will go through security. Your flight to Nashville will likely depart from Terminal A. 75 minutes is not enough for your transfer and the agent who told you that is flat out wrong. Call again and demand to be rebooked over a different hub, such as Chicago or Washington DC.


    Thank you. That's exactly what I thought, too.


  • What to do in case of delay?
    Sep 25, 2014
    Connecting time of 55 minutes (from Boston to Amsterdam, both United) seems to be ok if there is no delay. But what to do in case the inbound-flight is delayed? Yesterday the inbound-flight arrived at the scheduled departure-time of the outbound-flight. Is there a transfer-desk for these situations?


    Yes, there is a service desk for missed connections. You will likely be rebooked to Amsterdam through another European gateway, such as London or Frankfurt, which has a later flight leaving Newark. Otherwise you may be rebooked on the next day's Amsterdam flight.


  • 55 minutes
    Sep 23, 2014
    Connecting time 55 minutes from Texas to Hong Kong. United all the way. Is this enough?


    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Terminal C 1.5 hour connection time from UK thru Newark to Ft Myers
    Sep 21, 2014
    Hi, i have a flight next week on United 28 from London to Newark with 90 minutes connection time for the United 1587 to Ft Myers. I have been worrying (especially after reading the posts on here) that 90 mins is not long enough to clear immigration, get cases, customs and recheck etc. I rang United today and they say that 90 minutes is ok. Is that correct or should i change to an earlier arrival in Newark?


    90 minutes is the minimum time allowed for such a transfer. It should be enough time if your first flight is on-time but doesn't leave much time to spare in case of delays.


  • Enough time for connection to Lima? Tips?
    Oct 4, 2014
    At less than 24 hours notice, owing to strike action by Air France pilots, we've been transferred to United for our flight to Peru from Manchester, UK tomorrow morning. We'll be arriving into Newark (B) at 12.25 and the onward flight is from terminal C at 14.15. Does this give us enough time? Any tips for getting through as quickly as possible? Will our bags be transferred (as our destination is outside the USA) or will we have to go through customs? Many thanks in anticipation!


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs then re-check your bags immediately afterward with United. You will then have to take the AirTrain to Terminal C (if you arrive in B - United International flights arrive in both B and C), and then go through security.


    Why would they have to collect bags and clear customs if they are in transit to another international destination?


  • Connecting from Boston in Newark to Seattle
    Sep 16, 2014
    Hi, I have a connecting flight from United in Boston to Seattle, WA through Newmark. The flight arrives at 8:30 and then the connection flight leaves at 9:20. Is this enough time? Where do I go to get the connection?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. Both flights will be in Terminal C. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thank you!


    One more question! What level of terminal C will I arrive on and which level will I have to go for my next gate? How long do you think it would take someone who walks briskly to get there?


    Both flights will be on the same level. Your walk will take somewhere between 1 and 15 minutes, depending on the exact gates your flights are assigned.


  • connection time
    Oct 11, 2014
    In February, I will be flying from St Maarten to Newark with 85 minutes before my connection to Toronto departs. Is this enough time?


    That is below the minimum connection time for such a connection. You should ask to be rebooked on a later flight to Toronto.


    Sorry it is 90 min, between flights, but will I have to collect my baggage in Newark and re-ckeck? And willl I have to go thru security again?


  • Terminal B -Terminal C
    Sep 3, 2014
    I am flying from Edinburgh -Newark - Orlando (MCO) all flights with Untied Airlines , will my luggage go straight through to Orlando or will I have to pick it up and recheck in at Newark? Also I have 2 1/2 hrs Between flights at Newark will that be enough time to get through Emigration pick luggage ( if needed) and get from TB- TC ? Thanks


    You will arrive in either Terminal B or Terminal C, go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, then immediately re-check your bags with United. Then if you arrived in Terminal B, you will take the AirTrain to Terminal C. Then you will go through security and to your gate. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.
