I have a connecting flight, no hold baggage (just carryon) and 45 minutes in between flights. Both flights are with United Airlines. I'm not sure yet which gate I'll be at, but will they likely be close/manageable because I am flying the same airline?
Where is the first flight from?
It's from Pearson (Toronto)
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. If both flights are on United Express you should just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal A.
My family is travelling from India to San Jose through EWR. Considering that there would be 8 bags, Stroller and 3 kids, please let me know if there would be someone to help collect the baggage, go through Customs and then do check-in baggage again for Southwest. Arrival is on Terminal B whereas domestic flight to San Jose is from Terminal A. I am a bit worried.
No, there is no such person. Don't bring more baggage than you can carry. Ship your stuff ahead if you have to. Maybe pack a foldable luggage cart (or maybe 2) in your checked bags.
Flying from Hamburg to New Ark with a connecting flight to Akron/Canton OH. Layover time is only 1:35h. Is this enough and even a legal MCT?
Thanks for your answer
It's tecnhically a legal connection but it will be very difficult for you to make.
Hi, I am looking to book a trip from the Uk to Las Vegas however the return flight includes a 14 hour connection at Newark, I was wondering would we be able to leave the airport during this time to explore the city and if so how realistic is 'popping' into New York and returning to the airport? Regards Laura Hunt
I booked a flight with United and have 1hr 45 minutes layover between the flight (Spain-EWR) to the domestic flight EWR-IAH. I need to get through customs and straight to the gate? Do I have to pick up and check again my luggage? Will this be enough? Any advice?
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 take the airtrain to Terminal C, then go through security and to your departure gate. You have barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

Hi. We are going from punta cana to EWR then have a 1 hour layover to catch a flight to Heathrow. We have our ESTA. We are flying on different sirlybut thr same company. Is that enough time? And do we need to get our bags or will they be transferred onto the new plane?
Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, re-check your bags, go through security and to your departure gate. That is NOT enough time for your connection.
My mother 80 + needs assistance to transit from A to C. Her flights are not connected and are separate bookings. Her first journey ends at EWR and the onward is a separate booking
How much time does she have? What kind of "assistance" does she need?
She has about 4 hours. Moving with her bags from terminal A to terminal C
Can she walk? The AirTrain goes from Terminal A to C outside security.
Yes she can, but with her suitcase and bag it is very challenging.
Hi, we're travelling to Orlando from Edinburgh and have a layover at Newark of 1 hour 37 minutes, Both flights are with United Airlines. Is this enough time for us to get our connecting flight when we have checked baggage? Thanks in advance for any advice.
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
What would happen if me miss connecting flights? We booked this through a travel agent and have insurance.
United will book you on their next available flight to Orlando.
Thanks for your help.
My checked baggages arrived EWR yesterday (8/8/16). However, due to Delta airline's major delays at ATL, my flight was cancelled and had to rebook to JFK today (8/9/16). I am wondering where I can find my baggages at EWR.
Call Delta baggage service to see where your bags are - they may be at JFK. If they are in Newark, the Delta baggage service office is on the lower level of Terminal B.
