my flight to EWR is the earliest available.and there is only one flight out to PUJ. layover time is only 55 minutes. arrive at concourse A Depart C.136. Will the departure flight wait for us to take the bus from A to C if the arrival plane is on time?
They will not wait for you. If you miss your connection you will get routed through Houston or on a flight the next day.
Flying into EWR at 4:35am on a Friday. Will be going through customs, switching airlines (From UA to Alaska Air). There are 2 options: 7:00am and 4:00pm. We would really like the 7:00am to work so we aren't stuck at the airport for 8 hours. Is 2.5 hours enough time to make it through customs to catch the 7:00am? (We will be one of the first off the plane when landing in EWR) What about if we have TSA Precheck/Global Re-entry?
I think the 7 AM flight should be possible, especially with Global Entry.
Flight coming from CLT to SJU connects in EWR. One flight offers a 46 min. connection time then another option lists a 55 min. connection time in EWR. Are either one doable or is there not enough time for either?
Both are possible. Obviously the 55 minute one offers more wiggle room.
TLV - EWR - STL, will have an5 hours layover in EWR and flight lives to STL from terminal A. Have access to United lounge - with one pass yet the one in terminal A is closed for renovations. Can I go to terminal C with a boarding pass to terminal A?
Yes, go through security in Terminal C, use one of the clubs there, then about 45-60 minutes before your flight, take the shuttle bus inside security over to A.
I have a connection from BogotÃ¡ to Munich on the 14th of january, connecting from flight UA1069 (at terminal B?) to flight UA30 (departing from terminal C). If there are no delays, I have 1 hour 30 minutes, is that sufficient?
This is a very difficult connection. In Newark you will 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, and then go through security and to your departure gate. You have barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Would I be more likely to make it if I don't have any luggage to claim and recheck?
Also, I ordered this ticket through an online travel agency, will UA be able to help me if I miss the connection, say, if the incoming flight is delayed?
Yes, not checking bags makes it easier. Yes, if you miss your connection United will help you - they could rebook you on the later Lufthansa flight to Munich if there are available seats on it.
