I arrive at IAD on UA at 3:45pm on a flight from NRT. No checked bags. How long should it take to clear customs and get outside to catch the 5A bus into DC? Buses leave IAD at 4:15, 4:45, 5:15. Which if any of those are possible?
Hi, I know I'm very early but I just wanted to make sure. I'm flying from Charleston, WV to Amsterdam in June and have to change planes in IAD. Both flights are United and tickets are bought together. Do I have to claim my luggage? And do I need to go trough a security or immigration or anything? And reading the previous posts I assume that United is in terminal C and D, is that true? Thank you.
No, you do not have to go through security or customs or claim your bags on your way to Amsterdam. However, you may arrive in Concourse A, so you will have to take the AeroTrain or mobile lounge to C/D.
United has pushed back our arrival SFO to IAD to 11:37pm. Dollar rental car closes shop at 12:30am. If I abandon my family to get to baggage claim and race unencumbered through IAD can I make it to the car rental row before 12:30am?
I'll be moving like OJ Simpson (in the old Hertz commercials, NOT the white Bronco...no SUVs available at Dollar).
Yes, you should make it there on-time. IAD is not a huge airport.
