  • MCO to IAD yo LHR
    Apr 15, 2014
    Is 55 minutes connection time enough to get from inbound from MCO to outbound to Heathrow? I don't know gates if inbound or outbound.


    Yes, if both of your flights are on United then both flights will be in the C/D concourse.


  • Connect time for International Flight (Lufthansa) is 50 mins @ IAD
    Apr 11, 2014
    My flight connect time @ IAD is 50 minutes for the International Flight - Lufthansa. Route (Austin - Washington - Frankfurt - Bangalore). I am concerned if this time would be sufficient to make it ? What can be done to ensure i make it to transit quick,? Will you be able to share information on the terminal & pre-caution in case i run late. Appreciate any help to clarify. Flight Arrival (LH 9078) @ IAD - 9 PM (Apr 16) Flight Depart (LH 9238) @ IAD - 9:50 PM (Apr 16)


    Both of your flights will be operated by United, not Lufthansa. All you have to do at IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate and both will likely be on the C/D concourse. You should have enough time as long as your first flight is on-time. Since all you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, the only thing you can do to speed things along is run!


    :-) Thank You.


  • Connection Times

    I'm flying London UK to Denver on United. The schedule gives a 1hr connection time at IAD. United say this is OK. Is it ???


    No, if your connection time on LHR-IAD-DEN is only one hour then, no, that's not sufficient. You need at least 90 minutes. It would be sufficient on DEN-IAD-LHR.


  • BNA United to IAD Lufthansa Transfer
    Apr 10, 2014
    We arrive at Dulles from Nashville at 3:56 on United 3400. Don't know the gate/concourse. Our connecting flight to Frankfurt on Lufthansa 9051 departs Dulles at 5:15. Again I don't know the gate/concourse. Will we have enough time to make our connection. What concourse does Lufthansa usually depart from?


    You will likely arrive in the A concourse. Lufthansa flights depart from the B concourse. A and B are directly connected. If your first flight is on-time you should have enough time.


  • Domestic to International Transfer
    Apr 9, 2014
    Hi, I arrive on UA4801 from Roanoke to Dulles. Guess it arrives in Concourse D at 8.50PM. I have a flight to Abu Dhabi at 10.15PM from Gate A16. My bags are checked in straight to Abu Dhabi. Can I make it in time? Where do I get past passport control and security? Thanks.


    You will not have to go through passport control until you get to Abu Dhabi. You will go through security in Roanoke and not have to in Washington Dulles. Concourses A and D are connected inside security by the Aerotrain and Mobile Lounge. However, your flight from Roanoke may arrive in concourse A, which would make your transfer even easier. You should have enough time.

    Honolulu to Cleveland through connection @Dulles with 1hr between gates, will this be enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time. If your flight from Cleveland arrives in Concourse A, you take the Aerotrain or mobile lounge to concourse C/D where the Honolulu flight will depart. They are connected inside security.


  • LHR/RDU transfer at IAD
    Apr 8, 2014
    I arrive on UA 919 from LHR at 15:15 on a Sunday and need to transfer to UA 1719 to RDU which leaves at 17:00. Is this enough time and where do I need to go when I land?


    Yes, this should be enough time. When you arrive you will be funneled into United's immigration facility in the C/D concourse. You will go through US Immigration, claim your checked bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and then go through security and to your departure gate, which will also be on the C/D concourse.


  • Connection
    Apr 4, 2014
    I arrive from Manchester, UK next Saturday (4/12) and have 90 minutes to make a connection to Chicago (ORD) on United Express. The Manchester flight is also United. Is 90 minutes enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will clear US Immigration in United's facility in the C/D concourse and then your departure to Chicago will likely be from there as well.

    My flight will arrive at Washington (IAD) at 9:07pm from Orlando (MCO). My flight to Brazil is at 10:05pm. Is there enough time? I'm flying UNITED in both flights.


    Yes, that should be enough time, all you will have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will both be on the C/D concourse.


  • Connecting Flight
    Apr 1, 2014
    I am looking a United Flight - UA 5556 from New Orleans & going to Middletown Pa on United UA3334 with a stated connect time of 39 minutes. Is this feasible?


    Yes, that would be possible if your first flight is on-time.

    Good morning, have read the comments which have been very helpful. I am flying in LHR-IAD on UA then connecting with UA to MCO. Reading comments it would appear that both flights will be concourse C and I would clear immigration there too. Connection time is 2hrs 20 mins and am assuming that is more than enough time. Am I correct in assuming this - thank you.


    Yes, you have it correct.


  • MBJ to SFO thru IAD - is 90 min enough time?
    Mar 27, 2014
    My flight layover time changed from 2hrs to 1.5hrs - I will be departing MBJ on a Wednesday afternoon and connecting through IAD with a 90 minute layover. Is this enough time to clear immigration/customs/security and make my SFO flight?


    It should be enough time. Everything will be handled in United's facility in the C/D concourse.

    Mar 24, 2014
    Booking ticket for elderly mom in wheelchair. She will be returning to South Africa, from San Francisco. Arriving with United and connecting to South African Airways, with a 1 hour 45 min between. Will that be long enough, for her to catch the connection?


    Yes, if her first flight is on-time that is enough time.


    Mar 20, 2014
    My flight comes in to IAD at 4:10pm, my connecting flight leaves at 5:01pm. Both on United Should I have a problem making my connection?


    If both flights are domestic you should have enough time.
