  • 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.

    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.


  • clearing security
    Jul 4, 2016
    We're flying from Houston IAH to Newark , then on to Tel Aviv. How long should we need to connect through security


    If both flights are on United then you don't have to go through security in Newark - all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal C.


  • BOS - EWR - YVR
    Jul 3, 2016
    Flying from BOS to YVR with a 1Hr connection at EWR. Connection is from 6:30am to 7:30am. All flights are with United. I will have a checked bag, but I'm assuming I won't have to clear customs at EWR as I will do that at YVR so my bag can be checked all the way through. Never been to EWR, would I have enough time for the connection? Thanks.


    Yes, there is no US Customs when exiting the US. All you have to do in Newark is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Southwest to El AL Connection 2:05 Enough time?
    Jul 1, 2016
    I arrive in Newark on Southwest at 11:10 AM, and need to make a connection for a 1:15 El Al flight. I will have a checked bag. Is this reasonably doable? Am I asking for trouble?


    With a checked bag I think that will be extremely difficult, bordering on impossible. If there is an earlier Southwest flight I would change to it.


  • 30 min connection from pit to bos
    Jun 29, 2016
    Flying to Boston from Pittsburgh with United. I have a 30 min connection, on a Friday morning. Is that enough to make it?


    If you have to change terminals that will be very difficult, even with the shuttle bus inside security. Luckily you are traveling in the morning and United has lots of flights from Newark to Boston. If both flights are in Terminal C I think you can make it as long as the flight from PIT is on-time.


  • Connecting from EWR to San Francisco
    Jun 29, 2016
    Travelling from Edinburgh to San Francisco on United. Arrive in EWR terminal B at 12.00 Connecting flight to San Francisco is 13.30 in Terminal C This gives us only I hour 30 mins. Is this enough time? Do we go through immigration at EWR or in San Francisco?


    In Newark 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 and go through security. You realistically only have enough time if your flight from Edinburgh arrives early. However, United has frequent flights from EWR to SFO if you need to be rebooked.


  • can I make the transfer in time for next flight
    Jun 30, 2016
    Flight booked on Iceland Air from RDU to Hamburg, Germany. First flight is actually operated by Jet Blue from RDU to Boston arriving 20:08 Terminal C. Connecting flight Iceland Air departs 21:30 Terminal C. That 1 hr. and 22 min. We will have checked bags and carryon. Can we make this connecting flight and do we have to go through a 2nd security check and will they transfer our checked bags from Jet Blue to Iceland Air connecting flight.


    IcelandAir uses Terminal E in Boston. Since everything is on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your checked bags in Boston but you do have to go to Terminal E and go through security. You should have just enough time as long as your flight from RDU is on-time.


    Also, note that you posted this on the Newark Airport page, not Boston. I am assuming that's a mistake and that Newark is not involved in your journey at all.


    Thank you. Yes Boston is the airport not Newark but this website wouldn't allow my selection of Boston and kept asking to designate an airport so I used RDU, not sure why Newark showed up.


    Flight change last minute on American leaving from PHX arriving in Newark at 4:20, but we've been delayed. I have a flight to Dublin at 7:20 on United with a check bag. What is the likelihood I will make my Dublin flight today?


  • United & BA connection time
    Jun 28, 2016
    Hi Zap, question now for my home-bound flight, could I arrive on my Detroit to Newark flight - arriving 20.00 - would i make my BA coonection to LHR at 21.30? TIA


    Do you have checked bags? With checked bags that's not possible. Without checked bags it's very very difficult as you will still have to change terminals and go through security.


    Thanks ZAP, yes we have cked bags, I'm doing very well at this am I? :)


    Apologies - 'not' doing well at this!


  • Connections......aarrrrgghhhh
    Jun 28, 2016
    A group of 6 adults plan to fly from Glasgow to Newark UA162 in October 9am flight landing in Newark 11.45am local time. Our connecting flight to Lexington UA4457 leaves 13.35 therfore giving us 1hr 50mins....is this achievable or more likely unachievable?? Both United Airlines flights.


    It's possible if the flight from Glasgow is on-time.


  • Connection between A & C
    Jun 28, 2016
    I am looking to purchase a JetBlue flight from Orlando Fl arriving Terminal A connecting with a United Flight terminal C to Los Angles onto Auckland New Zealand. I have 2 hours to connect is this enough time. and do I have to collect bags from JetBlue and then recheck in at United or can they be transferred?


    United and JetBlue do not have an interline baggage agreement. This is barely possible if everything goes perfectly. I personally wouldn't try it.


    if I then chose to fly United connecting with United would 2 hours be enough to transit


    Yes, that would be enough time, especially if everything was on the same reservation. Even if it wasn't you could show your second confirmation to the United agent in Orlando and they should check your bags through to Auckland.
