How long does it normally take to get through immigration around 4pm on a Thursday?
Probably about 30-45 minutes.
Flying home to Dublin from Atlanta, is 40mins enough time to make my connection? Flying in United from Atlanta, Flying out to Dublin United as well.
Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Atlanta is on-time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
My daughter is traveling from South Africa to Amsterdam and picking up a connecting flight to IAD (KLM/Delta). She then is to board an AA flight from IAD to LAX. She has approximately 1 1/4 hours between her arrival in IAD and the departure to LAX. Is that enough time? What is the procedure when she arrives at IAD with respect to customs and baggage transfer? Thanks
That is not enough time. In IAD she will be taken to the International arrivals building, go through US Immigration, and claim her bags, she then has to go to the departures level, re-check her bags with American and go through security and to her departure gate. She needs about another hour to make this connection at IAD.
Hi, we will be arriving in IAD with DELTA domestic flight and have connecting flight with AUSTRIAN AIRLINES to VIenna

Hi, I will be arriving from Munich with United Airlines at IAD at 3;15 P.M. . I have a connecting flight to CHS with United at 5:05 P,M. Is this enough time to clear customs ? Will I need to recheck my baggage for the flight to CHS ? THank you
That should be just enough time. Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, through security and to your departure gate.

Hi! I will arrive in IAD with a UNITED domestic flight from RDU. I will only have 1h55 to make my connecting international flight with Korean to Seoul. Since tickets were bought on different reservations, I will have to collect my bags at arrival and recheck them for the next flight. Can I make it?
It's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Is 1:50 enough to transit from International flight UA 951 coming from Brussels to flight UA 542 going to Denver? Later flight is not an option since in Denver we have to connect to UA 1584 going to Jackson Hole. Suitcases included if possible ;-)
Yes, this is enough time, but leaves little to spare in case your flight from Brussels is late.
Arriving on United and going to Amsterdam on United. Will need to get bags and recheck?
No you do not. There is no US Immigration and Customs when leaving the US. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate if your first flight is domestic.
Arriving from Louisville SDF at 4:25pm on United Express 4708. Departing for Zurich ZRH on United 52 at 5:50pm. Two adults, both US citizens. Is this workable?
All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will have no issue making this connection.
