I will be flying United from Concourse C. Is it possible to connect from Concourse A to Concourse C by train or walking? i need to be in Concourse A first to see a friend before i go ahead to concourse C.
Yes, you can take the AeroTrain to A and then the mobile lounge or Aerotrain to C.
I'm flying standby from Portland, OR to Copenhagen with a plane switch in Dulles. Will an hour be enough time to get from a domestic United gate to a Scandinavian Airlines international gate?

If you are already checked in for the Scandinavian flight, yes it is enough time. But it's not enough time to exit security and check in at the SAS check-in desk if you have to do that.
I am coming from Grand Rapids, MI and heading out to Johannesburg, SA, with a layover in Washington. United just changed my itinerary and I'm left with only an hour in IAD. Can I expect to make my connection? Any hope for my checked bag?
Yes, that is enough time. If both flights are on the same reservation all you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I have a flight that lands from Munich to IAD that lands at 3:25pm then have a connecting domestic flight to Indianapolis at 5:05pm. Is this enough time to go through customs? If not, what happens if I miss my flight?
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. If you miss your connection you will be rebooked on the next available flight to Indianapolis, possibly through Chicago.
i have a United flight from Marseilles via Munich to IAD arriving at 3:35pm. Will I have enough connecting time to take a 4:35pm Southwest flight to TPA
No, that is absolutely not enough time.
Hi, I flying home to Ireland from Orlando with a change of planes in IAD (I am a UK citizen)....is 1 hr connection time in IAD sufficient?
Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ireland so all you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate if both flights are on the same reservation.
thanks Zap.......

We are flying uNited from CLT to IAD and then connecting on another united flight to Lisbon Portugal. Will a 1 hour and 20 minute layover in IAD be sufficient time ? Thanks
Yes, all you have to do in IAD on the way to Lisbon is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Traveling from Mexico City through Dulles to Frankfurt. Will I have to clear customs in Dulles even though it's just a connection?
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.
Catching a United Airlines flight to SFO UA340
What terminal does this depart from A B C D ???
Dulles only has one Terminal. United mainline flights such as yours use concourses C and D.
Thanks ZAP - sorted
I have 40 minutes for a connecting flight on American Airlines. Should I change my flight?
Where are you going from and to? American Airlines does not have a hub at Washington-Dulles so it is fairly unlikely you are connecting there on American.
