    I have a flight that arrives at 3:56pm at DCA in terminal C and my next flight is at 4:30pm in terminal B, both are American Airlines and no checked bags. Will I have enough time to make it to my connecting flight?


    That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Handicap service Not a wheelchair between terminal C & B.

    We will have a short layover between our flights - 40 min. I cannot walk fast due to bad knees. Is there a handicap cart that can pick me up at C and take me to B terminal ? Not a wheel chair - due to luggage.


    There is no way to guarantee a cart. You have to ask your airline.

    That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Gates within Terminal C With a 35 min layover Amer Airlines

    My son is flying from Syr to Reagan, arriving at 7:00pm. His connecting flight to Tampa departs at 7:35pm. Flights are 3/9/17. Will he need to go through security again? Not sure of gates yet, but looking like arriving Gate 40's and leaving Gate 20's. He will have 1 checked bag.


    Update: His gate for arrival is Gate 42 and departure is Gate 33. Will 35 min be enough time, if he has to go through security again? Thank you for any help! It's his first time flying alone.


    He will have to go through security again, but the lines at DCA are typically very short. He should be OK if the flight from Syracuse is on-time.

    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.
