  • Connection flight from REF
    Aug 22, 2016
    I'll be arriving in EWR from REF (Reykjavik) via WOW airlines and have a connecting flight to Dallas via Southwest with 2 hours in between. Is that enough time if I have checked luggage? THANKS!


    The code for Reykjavik is KEF, not REF. I do not think that is reasonably enough time for your connection.


    Oops, thanks for the correction, ZAP. Ok, I will have to make other plans and hopefully just pack a carry on! Yikes!


  • Sufficient connection time from Ottawa Canada terminal A to terminal C
    Aug 22, 2016
    I'm traveling from Ottawa Canada (terminal A) to Memphis TN (terminal C) through EWE. My flights provide me with a whole 38 minutes between scheduled arrival/departure. If all goes well, is this humanly possible?


    It's possible but leaves no time to spare. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Ottawa. In Newark you need to take United's shuttle bus inside security from A to C and run to your gate. It's a very difficult connection.


    Thanks so much ZAP, greatly appreciated. I'll give it a try.


  • ZRH - EWR -BUF on United. enough time?
    Aug 22, 2016
    Hi, wondering if 1h45 layover connecting from ZRH on United (operated by Swiss) to BUF on United also is enough time?


    That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.


  • From Oslo terminal b to San Francisco terminal c
    Aug 22, 2016
    I'm flying in from Oslo, terminal b. Is it possible to make my flight to San Francisco in terminal c if I only have 1,5 hour!??


    That's just enough time if everything goes perfectly.


    Thanks :) Any advise on how to make the flight? What to do and where to go?


    You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the AirTrain to Terminal c, go through security and to your departure gate. If you miss your connection, United will rebook you on their next available flight to San Francisco.


  • AC to United Connection with wheelchair assistance?
    Aug 17, 2016
    We will be connecting from YVR Air Canada flight to catch a flight to SNN, codeshare with United. There will be 2 1/2 hrs between flights. I understand the connections will be from Terminal A to B. Is this sufficient time? Will there be any problems having wheelchair service throughout?


    It will actually be A to C. There shouldn't be any issue with the wheelchair service. That should be enough time.


  • Do you go through TSA again when transferring from international fligh
    Aug 17, 2016
    My wife is arriving EWR from Athens. She wants to bring olive oil t(hat she'll buy in the Duty Free area of the Athens airport) in her carryon luggage. We know she has to go through Customs on arrival, but does she have to go through TSA prior to her connection to a domestic destination? In other words, can she still hand-carry the olive oil from Customs to her domestic gate, or will she have to check it because it'll be larger than the allowed liquid amount?


    After she goes through Customs and before she re-checks her checked bag she will have to put the olive oil into her checked bag. She won't be able to bring it through security.


  • time needed to go from Southwest terminal to United terminal
    Aug 17, 2016
    checking bags to Barcelona on United for a group tour


    I reccomend 2 hours for your outbound flight, and 3 hours for your return.


  • time needed from United to Southwest, having to change terminals
    Aug 15, 2016
    coming from Barcelona, thus needing to go through customs and then rechecking bags to Southwest.


    You need at LEAST 3 hours. I'd personally want a little more.


  • Lax to EWR to Man
    Aug 15, 2016
    We have been given one hour to change at Newark when we fly from LA to Newark then Manchester on one ticket. It's all the same airline United? Does out lugage go straight through?


    Yes, your luggage goes straight through, All you have to do in Newark is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal C. You have enough time.


  • Transfer between airlines on separate ticket
    Aug 14, 2016
    We will be arriving from Paris on Open Skies and transferring yo United on flight to Cleveland. Once we claim our bags and go through customs, will we have to transfer terminals with our bags or will we be able to recheck them in our arriving terminal? I guess I am asking is there a recheck desk for United in the British Airways terminal? Also, is there a bus from BA TERMINAL to The United gates. Also, where do we get our boarding passes for United? Thank you.


    You will have to take them to the United check in desk in Terminal A or C to re-check your bags to Cleveland. The AirTrain connects all terminals outside security. You will have to get your United boarding passes when you check your bags with United.


  • enough time to connect? need re-check baggage?
    Aug 12, 2016
    I'll be taking UA3707 to Newark (arrive at 10:55am) and then UA1102 (depart at 11:39am). From what I searched online, UA3707 arrived at Terminal A and UA1102 departed at Terminal C. I'm very concerned whether I can make the connection. Please advise...Thanks very much ahead...


    That's barely enough time if everything goes smoothly. United does run a shuttle bus inside security between their gates in Terminal A and Terminal C.


  • enough time?recheck baggage?
    Aug 12, 2016
    My friend and I are traveling from Seattle to Cairo Egypt with only 1 hour 30min layover in EWR going from Terminal A to Terminal B. Enough time? And do we have to pick up our baggage from baggage claim and go through security again? Or does it go straight through?


    Are both tickets on the same reservation or two separate reservations? What airlines are you flying?


    Yes both same reservation Lufthansa


  • Connection time
    Aug 11, 2016
    I'm booking flight UA 4815 connecting to UA 3945 on Thanksgiving day. It shows a 38 minute connection. Is it reasonable to think that can be made? I can't see what the gates are--thank you!


    Your exact gates won't be known until the day of your flight, but there's a good chance that both are in Terminal A. If so this is possible if the first flight is on-time. If one flight is in Terminal C then this is nearly impossible.


  • do we have enough time
    Aug 9, 2016
    am flying on United from Denver Co to Newark NJ, then from Newark NJ to Edinburg Scotland....all flights on United. We have 1 hr 37 minutes to make that edinburg flight, will have no luggage to check. Are we good to go?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Newark is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal C.


  • Connection time Terminal C to B// Panama City PTY-EWR-VIE
    Aug 9, 2016
    I am looking at a connection that would require me to transfer from Terminal C to B within 2hrs. Is this possible? I would be arriving at Newark at 3.45pm (incoming Flight Panama City PTY with UA, Outgoing flight to Vienna VIE with Austrian Airlines). Do I have to go through Immigration/ Customs altough my incoming and outgoing flights are not destined within the US? As I am only in transit, normally this would not be necessary. Is there also another security check in between the two terminals or can you transfer without going through security again? How long will it take all together approx.? Thanks.


    Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, possibly change terminals on the AirTrain then go through security. There is a chance that both flights will be in Terminal B, but all the rest of the steps are the same. This is a very difficult connection.
