I will arrive to EWR Terminal B with SAS and I have a connection AA flight to Miami from Terminsl A. I prseume I have to clear customs and immigration at EWR and rec-heck my luggage (even if it is checked in to my final destination)? Can I drop my luggage after customs at Terminal B? Merry Christmas from Stockholm
If your bags are tagged through to Miami then you will be able to re-check them in Terminal B. Otherwise you will have to take them to Terminal A with you on the Airtrain.
Okay so I am flying from Greenville, SC. I am planning on checking a bag. Since United didn't have any straight flights to Philly they have provided me with a Amtrak ticket to take from Newark. Well one thing I am confused about is if I'm checking a bag in, do I have to re-check it when I arrive in Newark at Amtrak or does it transfer? Also, the same on the way back. When I check my bag in at 30th Street Station, does it transfer or will I have to recheck a bag for United?
You have to claim your bag at the baggage claim and put it on the train and on the other way, put the bag on the train yourself then check it in Newark. There is no checked bag service on these Amtrak trains. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/united-mileageplus-consolidated/374107-united-amtrak-codeshare-faq-including-zfv-philadelphia-22.html
For the first time I am going to Newark EWR airport by Amtrak train from Philadelphia (ZVF) rail station. I will reach at 6 PM to EWR station by train (if it doesn't do any late). I am 100 mins. time to catch an United Airlines flight at Terminal C. As I am flying to international destination, I will have to go through immigration and passport control. Is this time sufficient to catch the flight from Amtrak station? How can I go to Terminal C from Amtrak station? How long does it take? Please help me.
Yes. that is enough time to make your transfer. The AirTrain connects the Amtrak station directly to Terminal C.
My brother, who is traveling alone from PHX to EWR with a 2 hour layover there, then on to AVP, is deaf and slightly mentally challenged (can get confused easily in a new place). I have requested wheel chair assistance from one gate to the next. Will the United FA's take him all the way to his next terminal gate so that he is never left alone to fend for himself??
The people who push the wheelchairs do that as their only job (they are not flight attendants). But yes, they will take him from one plane to the next.
I will be landing at EWR from EDI. I have one hour before my connecting flight. Is that enough time to get thru customs and make my next flight?
No, that will probably not be enough time and is likely not a legal connection. I would try to change your connection to a later flight out of Newark if possible.
At EWR Terminal B is for all international arrivals & departures (except those of United Airline). You would arrive at Terminal B (or C if using United, where they go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs, and (if connecting to another flight) re-check-in bags and take the Airtrain to their connecting terminal (if needed). Domestic flight connections would be in Terminal A, (or C for some domestic United flights). On arrival at TA, you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. You may need up to 90 mins for transfer.

We will be arriving in EWR (Terminal A) from the UK and transferring to a flight to Denver - both on United. I assume we will need to clear immigration in Newark. Will we also need to pick up our baggage or will that be transferred automatically? It's a single through ticket.

Also - are there any ATMs in the terminal where we can pick up some dollars?

Many thanks
Yes, you will have to claim your baggage in immigration but can immediately re-check it with United after clearing customs. You will then go to the terminal for your departing flight and go through security. Yes, there should be numerous ATM's.
Many thanks, that's very helpful.

Do you know if the same will apply on our return flight (ITO - LAX - EWR - BHX)?
No, on your return trip the only time you will have to go through immigration or touch your luggage is in Birmingham.
I misplaced my small black (cosmetic size) bag of computer/telephone assessories near terminal A24/A25. Please call if you located it 973 966-1025
Where is the port authority police station at EWR? My husband lost a bag; the police found it and have it at their station. It's pretty important that he retrieve this bag, but we can't find the police station on any map of the airport.

Hubby is not blind but he is visually impaired. It's unlikely that he will be able to read any of the maps posted in the airport. So if anyone can give me an idea where he can find the police station, he'll be more prepared when he arrives.

The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey provides each of their Airports with Airport Police. See: http://www.panynj.gov/police/lost-found.html - however, EWR has no telephone quoted and the URL does not work. (tried both http:// and www. before it.) Call the Port Authority Police Lost and Found Custodian at (973) 961-6243.
Please help. I lost my new Dell Laptop on 6/27/13 at Newark Airport around 3:30p at Terminal A, Level 2, Door 02. Was sitting inside near baggage claim and I just realized I do not have the laptop. Please contact me at ldizard@yahoo.com if you found it. Thank you.
Your only option is to call the Port Authority Police Lost and Found Custodian at (973) 961-6243 - if you ever get through!
My sis boarded a flight AI 144 at Gate 53. There she dropped a pink and black wallet containing some cash. If you have seen it or have found it, please contact me at swap1277@yahoo.com
