  • 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

    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.


  • Connecting flight from OSL to MCO
    Aug 8, 2016
    We have a 95 min connection coming from Oslo with SAS, to MCO with United. Is there any tip for making this connection with children in school age? Know it will be a challenge.


    No tips other than sit as close to the front on your Oslo flight as you can and move as quickly as you can.


  • layover time adequate?
    Aug 8, 2016
    Have a single passenger arriving 16:24 Tues Aug 9 from ATL into terminal C, Leaving for CPH 17:35 terminal B. Is 1:11 enough transfer time?


    Sorry - it is an SAS flight, booked at the same time. There is no checked baggage.SAS agent says there is time, I am just a little concerned. Thank you!


    It's possible. United runs a shuttle bus from C to the concourse of B that SAS uses inside security that will help you save time.


  • SAV-EWR-YYZ connection
    Aug 7, 2016
    We are flying UA from Savannah via Newark to Toronto. First time travellers from Australia and we aren't sure what the procedure is. Will we have to pick out bags up and clear customs at Newark? And if so, what's the general amount of time it'll take to do this? Will we be flying out of an international terminal? We are a little confused as I believe US customs is done in Canada when flying through to the states but unsure about the other way?


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Newark does not have an "International Terminal". United mainline flights use terminal A and United Express flights use terminal A and C. They run a shuttle inside security if you need to go between A and C.


  • Premier Access advice
    Aug 7, 2016
    General question about premier access in terminal C. We have a tight connection time officially 1.35 although the inbound flight is quiet often early, BFS EWR then after passport and customs EWR to MCO. As I am from the UK I was hoping Premier access would help with security but have seen reports of TSA staff allegedly stopping people using the premier access line and making everyone use a single line. I asked united and they said they only sell the premier access product, it's up to the TSA who uses it. At United's suggestion I contacted TSA they said its united who decide and if I am not happy with the airline complain to this number. Any advice on whether this is a problem or speeding the security process up would be a great help.


    There's unfortunately nothing you can do to speed up the security process if TSA refuses to open the premier access lanes. All you can do is ask for a refund from United after the fact (if you paid for it).

    Hi I'm traveling to Newark Airport from LAX on Sunday 2nd October. We get in to terminal A at 4:35 pm with Virgin Australia International and want to book a flight to Toronto with Air Canada departing at 18:25, also terminal A. Is this enough time for my connection? My travel agent is being cautious and has warned against it in case there is a delay from LAX. Thanks in advance :)


    Virgin Australia does not fly to Newark. Please double check your reservation.


    I have. It says Virgin Australia VA 5268 on our itinerary and then underneath operated by Virgin America. All details are correct.


    OK, then your flight to Newark is on Virgin America. All you have to do in Newark is claim your bags from Virgin America, go to the Air Canada check in, check your bags, and go through security. You should have just enough time.


    Thank you! I saw there are some other flights through Porter airline, would you recommend Porter?


  • Layover, terminal change, go out?
    Aug 16, 2016
    I'm flying from Mexico to Ireland and have a layover here, it says I have to do terminal change. I'll be flying with United. After going through customs, will I have to get my luggage? If so, where do I re-check them and do I have to go through security again? And, would it be possible to get out to see someone really quick at the airport and go back in?


    Yes, you will arrive 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 will be outside security once you re-check your bags so you could meet someone then. I don't know how much time you have for your connection since you didn't post that.


    Would it be easier for the other person to be waiting for me in terminal C?


  • Worried about connection time
    Aug 5, 2016
    Just reading through some of the very helpful comments here and starting to worry about my own connection. We will be flying MXP to EWR, on United, arriving 1:45 p.m.. Flight to DEN (also United) leaves at 2:55 p.m. We do not have checked bags. Will this be enough time? Thanks in advance!


    Sorry, forgot to mention that we will be returning to Denver after a trip to Italy.


    Realistically no, that is not enough time, even without checked bags.


  • Help, transferring from Terminal B to Terminal C
    Aug 4, 2016
    My husband arrives tomorrow (Friday) on Lufthansa at 15.45 at Terminal B and flies from Terminal C at 18.29. Can you go from terminal to terminal without exiting and going through security again? And how best to get between terminals?


    He will have to go through US Immigration, claim his bags, go through US Customs, re-check his bags at the re-check desk, take the AirTrain to Terminal C and go through security. he should have enough time.


  • Help, Transfer from C135 to C84 for connection flight
    Aug 2, 2016
    My young 17 year old daughter on flight UA75 from Newcastle to Newark delayed take off. Expected arrival at C135 at 13.21 and need to get to C84 for connecting flight UA3364 at 14.42pm for Columbus Ohio. Have only cabin baggage will she have time to make connection - worried father!.


    With no checked bags it's possible she will make it, especially considering that there's a good chance the Columbus flight will be delayed. If she misses it United will book her on the next available flight to Columbus.


  • Short layover at newark
    Aug 2, 2016
    I am traveling on UA49 which arrives at 5.20 local time and have my connecting flight for UA1993 to Houston at 6.30, a short layover of 1.10 hrs only. My final destination is Mexico. Is this time sufficient to catch the connecting flight UA1993 at Newark? Will I need to do immigration at Newark since my final destination is Mexico? Would my Newark to Houston trip be considered as domestic? Would there be issues to catch the connecting flight even if it is of same airlines and final destination is Mexico? Please advise as I am worried that I may miss my connecting flight. Would UA arrange for another flight if I miss the connecting flight? Please advise. Thanks


    Yes, 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, go through security and to your departure gate. I won't say that connection is impossible but it is very difficult. It is possible because of the early morning arrival so there will be very short lines. If you miss your connection they will rebook you, possibly on a nonstop from Newark to Mexico City (if your final destination is Mexico City - it's unclear if by "Mexico" you mean the city or country).


    If I have to claim my checked luggage and also do immigration then I don't think I will be able to catch the connecting flight. It's Mexico country. Mumbai UA49 ➡️ Newark ➡️ UA 1993 Houston ➡️ UA 6297 Escobedo. Should I rebook my flight or I will get another connecting flight to Escobedo easily? Thanks


    United flies lots of flights from Houston to Monterrey (it's called that, not Escobedo). All you have to do in Houston is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    But what about the connection between Newark to Houston? Will I be able to make it with 1.10 hrs stopover with immigration to be done and baggage to be claimed? Also the terminal seems to be same at Newark (Terminal C), would I still need to claim my baggage and checkin again? Else I will have to look for another connecting flight for Monterrey. Thanks Tejas


    In Houston you don't have to go through Immigration or do anything with your bags, you just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Connection time between flights
    Jul 29, 2016
    Flying from Boston to Newark and then onto Copenhagen with checked baggage. My flight gets into Newark Terminal C at 9pm, and my flight to Copenhagen leaves from Newark Terminal B at 11:30pm, is this a doable connection?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time.
