    All united flights arriving domestic - departing to Grand Cayman. Before I book - it's a 45 minute layover.


    Yes, that's possible if the first flight is on-time.

    Sep 30, 2016
    United flight will arrive at IAD at 16:25 and need to make it on to a United international flight to ZRH leaving at 18:00. Does that give me and my checked bage enough time to make the connection?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time.

    Arriving on a United Flight on Friday, Sept. 30 at 8:45pm and catching Turkish Airlines flight to Istanbul departing at 11:05pm. 2 hours and 20 minutes...is that enough time to make the connection? Will I have to go through security again? (no checked bags)


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

  • Flight From LHR to IAD and then to RIC
    Oct 3, 2016
    Hi Bookign flights and wondering if 1h 35mins gap between landing in IAD from LHR and getting the flight out of IAD to RIC is enough time and is there a different immigration/customs for transfers ? Thanks in advance


    That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. Yes, as a transfer everything will be handled in the C/D concourse facility.


    United Flight from Alb lands at 11:47AM. Need to catch United Flight to SFO at 12:35AM. Will 45 min be too tight? This will be in February. I'm concerned about winter storms.


  • Connecting flight
    Sep 26, 2016
    Flying from LHR with United Airlines to EWR via IAD with a 2 hour layover in IAD. Will I need to collect my baggage before going through security and connecting on the next flight, or will the baggage be transferred to the connecting flight? Also, how far are the connecting terminals?


    Yes, at IAD You will arrive in the C/D concourse, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate, likely also in the C/D Concourse, so everything will take place there. There's a slight chance your flight to Newark will depart from Concourse A, which is a short ride on the AeroTrain away.


  • IAD

    San Antonio, TX, US (SAT) to Washington, DC, US (IAD - Dulles) 4:35 pm - 8:47 pm (3h 12m) with a layover of 1hr18mins to connecting UNITED flight to Frankfurt? Is that enough time? How bad is Dulles during the winter? Sorry for the dumb questions


    Yes, that is enough time. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate which should both be on the C/D concourse. The weather in Washington DC during the winter is usually good and Dulles is not a congested airport, so it is only affected by the weather when it's exceptionally bad.


    Everything is on same reservation, even if the plane is late everything should run smoothly.


  • transfer from international to domestic on non-linked tickets
    Sep 25, 2016
    My mom is arriving from Moscow to IAD with one checked bag via Aeroflot. She then should travel to St. Louis via United. The layover is about 8 hours. Could someone describe how the process of transfer btw. international and domestic should work? The more details, the better - I will be calling and explaining them to her - she does not speak English. Based on the Dulles Map I assume she arrives to International Arrivals Building first and she passes the immigration, then customs, then she should pick her checked bag at baggage claim while still being in int. arrivals building. Which terminal she should move to get on United flight? How? Shuttle, walkway or train? Google says gate is A6 so is it terminal A then? We appreciate your responses!


    She will arrive and be transported to the International Arrivals Building, then go through US Immigration, claim her bags, and go through US Customs, then she will go to the main terminal departures level and check her bags with United. She will then go through security and then to her departure gate, which could be on A, C, or D. There are signs to all departure gates once you get through security.


  • Will I make it to gate?

    Arriving on UA421 from Houston and we have a one hour before we depart on UA 655 to Boston. Do we have enough time to get to our new gate and maybe get something to eat?


    Yes, that is enough time. Both gates will be on the C/D concourse and all you have to do is walk from one gate to the other. You might have some time to grab some fast food. There's not much on that concourse anyway.


  • Layover 1 hour from BNA to DUB
    Sep 23, 2016
    We will arrive from Nashville at IAD and will have a one hour layover before our flight to Dublin. Is that enough time to get to the flight to Dublin?


    If both flights are on the same reservation, yes, that is enough time.


  • Do I collect my baggage before connecting?
    Sep 22, 2016
    We arrive at IAD from Toronto for a 50 min layover before connecting to CAE. Do we need to get our baggage before connecting? Or will it be transferred for us?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • How long between terminals A &D via shuttle
