(1) How many Terminals are there at IAD.
(2) LH will arrive on which Terminal
(3) United express flight will depart from which terminal.
(4) Coonection time of 2hrs.45 minutes on same itenerary is sufficient or not.
IAD only has one terminal. You will arrive in United. It will arrive in Concourse C or D where you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate, which will be in A, C, or D. If you have to go to A it is connected to C and D by a shuttle bus and the AeroTrain inside security.
Also, you should have enough time.
How much minimum time you recommend for International arrival to domestic departure ?
Please advise that How much minimum time you recommend for International arrival to domestic departure ?
90 minutes is doable at IAD, but 2 hours is better. This is assuming both flights are on the same reservation.
I am connecting from LHR-IAD to IAD-YOW. Does 1h15 give me enough time?
No, that is below the recommended international to International connection time in IAD. It might be barely possible though if you don't check any bags.
I am coming via Saudia to IAD on Dec 16 at 12:20 pm and want to get AA or United at 12:55 to Columbus Ohio with connection time of 35min.
Will I be able to make it?
AA does not fly from IAD to Columbus. The minimum International to domestic connection time when traveling on two separate itineraries is about 3 hours, so no, that is not even remotely possible.
42 minutes enough time ?

IAH - IAD via UA109. Lands 11:28
IAD - YUL via UA 6277 Departs 12:10
Yes, that's possible. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
My wife needs to pick up luggage from United domestic move to Delta domestic and check in again, although she'll have 3 hours to do it.

She's not a native English speaker and neither of us has ever used Dulles before, so any help would be appreciated
Yes, that's possible. All baggage claims and bag check desks are in the same building, just on different levels.
Hi, I'm flying with United an international flight from Ottawa/Canada to Beirut through washington airport and I was wondering if 1h30min is enough time to catch the 2nd flight and will I need to go through customs ir change terminal if both flights are operated by united?

Thank you
Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa. All you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I'm a Swedish citizen traveling from Amsterdam. If I arrive from Amsterdam to Dulles, is 1 hours and 37 minutes enough to get me on a flight to Detroit?
What airlines are you flying? Are both flights on the same reservation?
Klm and Canadair (?). It would be on the same reservation. I am considering going without checked in luggage.
Sorry, my mistake. That would be the plane type. Yes, both with Klm on the same reservation.
Yes. That's just enough time. Note that the second flight will be operated by Delta.

Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am travelling from Houston to Washington and then from Washington to Zurich through Swiss International Airlines.
I have only 2 hours to catch the connecting flight. Both are with same airline Swiss International Airline.
Would 2 hours be sufficient for collecting the checked in luggage, custom clearance and again check in to Zurick flight
The first flight is operated by United. All you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You have enough time.
I'm arriving IAD from lagos nigeria on the 3rd of dec at 19:35. My last destination is DFW. Trying to get a flight to SEE for 22:35 however I'm wondering if I would have enough time to check in 2 luggages considering going through the immigration and all other protocols. So I have enough time to catch up?
There are no nonstop flights from Lagos to IAD. Where are you stopping first? What airline are you flying to DFW? What is "SEE"?
(Typographical error) SEE meant to be DFW. Connecting from Casablanca to IAD. While my flight from IAD is United airlines.
