We are flying into IAD from CPH on SAS. Our itinerary continues with a UA flight, but we were not issued a boarding pass for the UA flight at our origin. They said it had to be obtained at Dulles and our luggage is only checked as far as Dulles. The IAD website indicates that we will be processed through customs in the C concourse, but is that where our luggage will be? If it is only tagged for Dulles and not for our final destination, will it go to IAB? And where will we check in for the UA flight and get boarding passes? Is it possible to do this without going to the United ticket counter in the Main Terminal?
If it is only tagged to IAD then it will go to the IAB and you will have to re-check it at the United check in desk. The IAB is right next to the main terminal.
I have 53 minutes between UAL flight from ATL and UAL flight to Brussels. Is that sufficient?
Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi we have a flight from IAD to Miami at 5:40 pm with AA my friend is coming from Germany it's not a connected flight so she has to go through the immigration and customs and has never been in the USA before. Her flight arrives at 2:50 pm. So that means there are 3 hours in between. Is that enough time?
That should be enough time if her flight arrives on-time.
I will fly from Cincinnati to IAD, arrive at 11:53, then fly to Beijing at 12:40. Do I have enough time to make the next fly? Both are UA. Do I need take train? If yes, how I can use the shortest time to do that?
You may or may not have to take the train, it depends where your flight from Cincinnati arrives (United Express flights use A, C, and D) You will depart from C or D. Yes, you have enough time.
I only have 48 min at IAD , from domestic terminal to international terminal is this enough time
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. IAD only has one terminal.
Hi I have one booking with Lufthansa going from FRA to IAD and then to Denver with a 1 hr 55 min layover. The first two flights are with Lufthansa but the domestic flight is managed by United. The whole booking is made on Lufthansa so I guess I will get there but I am worried that I might miss the flight to Denver. I am from Sweden first time getting into the US only international flights made with the passport is to Japan and Canada. I have gotten the impression by reading here that 1:55 is pretty tight. The arrival at IAD will be on a friday at 15:55 and the flight to Denver departs at 17:50.
You should have enough time - IAD is one of the better airports in the US for making International to domestic connections.
Flying from roc 1hr 17min in iad then to atl via united , roundtrip. 1hr 28min going back,
Will I be ok? As long as my roc flight is on time? First time in iad, how big is it?
Yes, that should be plenty of time. IAD is medium sized. It's smaller than ATL. Imagine ATL with just 3-4 concourses instead of 7 and it's very similar.
I am a non US citizen traveling for the first time to US. I am having a connecting time of 1 hour 55 minutes at IAD. I have booked my tickets with United Airlines. Is the connecting time enough to clear immigration customs and security check? Will UA provide me another flight option if I miss my connecting flight?
Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, if you miss your connection due to the first flight arriving late then United will book you on the next available flight to St. Louis, possibly through another hub such as Chicago or Houston.
What if the delay is due to the immigration and security check? In that case will they provide me with another flight option?
Yes, they should.

In IAD you will go through US Immigration, Customs, and security and then go to your departure gate.
I am flying from LHR to IAD arriving at 3:25pm. Then on a separate flight to MIA at 5:40pm. Is that enough time? Thank You.
What airlines are you flying? Do you have checked bags?
United from LHR and American to Miami. No check - only carry on luggage.
OK then. Check in online for your AA flight online before you leave London and you should have enough time.
Thank you!
