    Terminal c to terminal a?


    About 10 minutes.


  • Connecting from Terminal C to Terminal B
    Dec 23, 2016
    I have 1 hour and 15 minutes to connect from Terminal c to Terminal B. Is this enough time?


    That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Will I make it on time?
    Nov 29, 2016
    I arrive to gate 35x terminal C at 6:51pm and my connecting flight leaves 7:30pm from gate 25 terminal B. It's American and I don't have checked luggage.


    That should be enough time if the first flight is on-time, but it leaves no time to spare.

    Can my son walk from terminal B baggage claim to terminal C inside so I can pick him and a friend up in one location?


    He may have to briefly go outside, but it's a very short walk.

    Arriving from PWM 12/6 at 2:06PM - Connecting flight to DFW departing DCA at 2:59PM. Is that plenty of time to change planes? (First-time flier)

    Question: If I arrive at Reagan at 9:19 on American, can I make another American flight that leaves at 9:59?? Is American terminal one big terminal? Do I need to go through TSA again to get to my next connecting flight?


    Yes, All American gates are connected inside security. It is possible if the first flight is on-time.


  • Quick Layover - any tips?
    Aug 4, 2016
    We're supposed to arrive at 9:22 am tomorrow, terminal C gate 39. Any tips for making the 10:00 am from terminal B, gate 31?


  • Time between gates
    Aug 1, 2016
    Distance from gate 8 to 9


    They're right next to each other, so like 1 minute.

    are all american domestic connections in same terminal so a 45 min layover could work?


    They are all in the same terminal. It is possible but doesn't leave much time to spare.


  • American Airlines Connection 30 minutes are you kidding?

    I'm leaving from LaGuardia and arrive at DCA scheduled 11:25 AM. My connection is scheduled for 11:55 AM departure. American Airlines for both flights. I plan on no checked bags. I will be traveling with my wife and 6 year old. Any chance I make the connection? How can I make change to my reservation with AA without invoking the 200+ dollar change fee if necessary? Thanks


    It's possible. Obviously it leaves no time to spare if the flight from Laguardia is delayed. If you miss it then AA will rebook you on the next flight to your destination.


  • Gate X

    Where is gate 35x for American eagle


    An escalator near gate 35 in Terminal B leads you to the ground level for gate 35X. When your flight is called you will board a shuttle bus that will take you to your plane.

    Where is it?


    Gate 8 is in the rotunda at the end of Terminal A.
