United have sold me a ticket from LHR to IAD arriving 11:20 then IAD to CUN departing 12:30. I would assume United believe this is enough time for a connection, but is it? Also, will I need to collect and recheck my bags or will they be checked at London all the way to Cancun?
Yes, you will have to 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. Everything will be in the C/D Concourse. It is possible but everything has to go perfectly.
Please I have a flight from DFW (11:55) TO IAD (15:51) and after claiming my luggage. Catch up with Virgin Atlantic to (LHR) AT 18:45. Will that be plenty of time for international flight. I don't have the terminals or gate info right now. Thank
Yes, that should be enough time. IAD only has one terminal. What airline are you flying on the first flight?
United airline from DFW
OK, then you just have to go to the main terminal, claim your bags, take them up to the departure level, re-check them with Virgin Atlantic, and go through security and to Concourse A. You should have enough time.
