  • Too tight?

    Travelling from LHR to EWR arriving at 15:05 , transferring to BOG, Colombia at 16:34. Is it too close? I've never been through the states before so was unaware about the re-security check

     

    Both flights are United Airlines

     

    you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go to Terminal C if you arrived at a different terminal, then go through security and to your departure gate. This is a very difficult connection.

     

  • Overnight Layover between terminals
    Jul 18, 2016

    Landing EWR on a Virgin Atlantic Flight from LHR at 7:50pm with a United departure to DFW at 6am the next morning and hoping to avoid a hotel stay. Will have no checked bags and pre-printed boarding passes. Anyone have thoughts or experience on getting from Teminal B to Terminal C for an overnight? Want to make sure security/TSA will be open and that I won't be refused for having a longer layover-Assuming anything less than 12 hours is good, but want o double check. Thanks in advance

     

    You will not be able to go through security in Terminal C until early morning (about 3-4 AM). So considering you will be out of immigration and customs a little before 9 PM, you'll have 6 or 7 hours to kill before you can go through security.

     

    Thanks for the response-Out of curiosity, wll I have to wait until 3-4am because security will be closed or because of a regulation regarding time prior to my flight? Thanks

     

    Security will still be open when you arrive, but you will be considered a "next day" traveler and not allowed to go through. Security will close at about midnight. You will be allowed through when it reopens.

     

    Good to know-Thanks!

    flying united day to ewr arrive at 12:59 pm terminal A and depart terminal C at 1:40 pm. is this possible ?

     

    DAY (dayton) to EWR both flights are united express

     

    It doesn't leave much time to spare. There is a shuttle that runs inside security between United's gates in A and C. There's a chance your flight to PIT could also leave from A.

     

    thank you !!!

     

  • Connection from international arrival in terminal to B to A/C

    Flying in from FRA on LH so I'd arrive in terminal B at 4:20pm, and continuing on a UA Express flight to PIT (either it being terminal A or C). I can either do a 2 hr 37 min or 3 hr 29 min connection. Should I be fine with the shorter one? And after exiting customs, will it be better to take my checked luggage to the terminal I'm flying out of or leave it at the bag drop in terminal B?

     

    You can just drop your bag at the re-check desk right after customs as long as they are tagged to PIT. Either connection should be sufficient.

    Hi, Leaving POS and arriving EWR 5:20am. Then connecting flight to MYR departing 7:00am. All UNITED airlines. Is 1hr 40 mins enough connecting time? I only have carry-on.

     

    With only carry-ons and an early morning arrival, This is potentially doable, but it will be very close.

     

  • Transfer from Terminal B to Terminal C

    My friend is on DAL763 to EWR, which is delayed and is supposed to arrive at 4:02 at Terminal B. She then has to get to Terminal C UAL1082 at 6:13. Will the United shuttle work for this, or will she have to go back through security, which seems like it might not give her enough time?

     

    The United shuttle does not go to the satellite that Delta uses in Terminal B. she will have to take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security. If she doesn't have checked bags this is still possible.

     

    Thanks.

     

  • International to Domestic Transfer time

    i'm looking to travel from BHX to LAS via EWR and back again. Before booking a flight how much time should I allow for an international to domestic flight transfer. I'm looking to book flights UA26 and UA 1971 which allows 1.5 hrs transfer time ... is that enough? or should I allow longer?

     

    For International->Domestic I would want at least 2 hours, preferrably a little more. For Domestic to International an hour is fine.

     

    i rang united customer service to see if i can get any info as im flying from BHX to EWR and also have a 1.5 stop before getting my connecting flight. they advised me it will be enough time and if you was to miss your connecting flight they need to put you on another one anyway!

     

  • Terminal B to C connection to SFO

    Hi,I am flying in to terminal C with United Airlines and only have 1 hour 30 minutes for my connecting United Airlines flight to SFO from terminal B.I have requested special assistance as I am disabled but I'm worried that I won't have enough time to catch my flight.Please can you advise ?

     

    No United flights depart from Terminal B. A United flight to SFO will depart from Terminal C. Where are you flying into EWR from?

     

    Sorry!! I fly into EWR from BHX terminal B and connecting flight to SFO from terminal C but only have 1 and half hours to make connection.I have requested special assistance as I am disabled - can I make it ?

     

    They will do their best but there's no guarantees. If you do miss your connection United has frequent flights from EWR to SFO that you can be rebooked on.

     

  • 1 reservation arriving Terminal B and departing Terminal C

    My daughter in in-flight right now in one reservation, depart NRT UA78 arriving 5pm at Terminal B, departing UA4900 7:29PM Terminal C. My question is, does she still need to get her 2 checked in bags even if it s only under same airline and 1 reservations? does she have anytime for her connecting flight, and lastly what is the easiest way for her to reach Terminal C. Really need help asap

     

    Yes, she still needs to claim her bags to go through US Customs. She will re-check them at the re-check desk right after. She will then take the AirTrain to her departure terminal and through security. She should have enough time. However, note that UA4900 appears to be cancelled today, so she will be rebooked to DC via a different flight (there is a 7:29 flight to DCA which appears to be full and an 8:40 PM flight which also appears to be full). Unless she wants to drive or take the train she will likely be stuck in Newark overnight.

     

    Thanks, you are right flight was cancelle and was able to book her for tomorrow's flight at 10:22am, since this is international flight and more than 12 hrs stop over due to cancellation, can she be provided a hotel accommodations? can she demand it?

     

    Since the flight was cancelled due to weather they are not required to provide a hotel.

     

  • Enough Time?

    I am flying from SFO to Lisbon on United with a 60 minute between landing at EWR to catch my flight to Lisbon. Is this enough time?

     

    Yes, all you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate both in terminal C.

     

  • Terminal security

    I'll be connecting in Newark from Charlotte. (Arriving with AA in Terminal A I believe and departing with SAS from terminal B) My question is do you really have to go through security again from terminal to terminal? And once you go through security are there stores and food options inside the terminals or only outside security? It appears that way from the map but I've never seen another airport set up like this?? Usually once you go through security you're free to go to whatever shop, food court, terminal, or gate you want. And if that is the case will 1hr50min be enough time to get from my arrival (terminal A I think) to my terminal B departure? All help appreciated. I have anxiety regarding airports and like to know what to expect.

     

    Yes, you do have to go through security again. if you purchased two separate reservations and have checked bags you will also have to claim your bags, take them to Terminal B and re-check them. Lots of large airports have multiple terminals that are not connected inside security. (Los Angeles, Boston, New York JFK, Phoenix, Detroit, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, to name just a few). You have barely enough time if you don't have checked bags and don't realistically have enough time if you have checked bags that you have to transfer yourself.

     

    Thanks! My trip is all on one ticket but it's with different airlines. Does that mean it's on the same reservation? Because I do have a checked bag. And thank you, I understand the layout now.

     

    Yes, if it's one ticket then your bags will be transferred and all you have to do in Newark is take the airtrain to terminal B and go through security.

     

  • trying to have a quick visit at EWR

    My daughter returning to US from abroad (US citizen) to EWR at 5:10, terminal C. Then catching 9:15 pm flight to BWI. Is there any way I can see her for a few minutes before she catches her BWI flight?

     

    She will be outside security when she clears customs. So you could meet her then and there.

     

    so to go to bwi, she'll have to go through security again?

     

    Yes, she will.

     

  • time to make next flight

    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)

    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.
