Hi, I am looking at flights to travel with carry-on only from Columbia CAE to Newark Liberty Intl. with a 40 min lay over inWashington Dulles IAD. Is this doable? if yes how easily? What should I be aware of?
Yes, that's doable but it leaves no time to spare.
arriving aer lingus with pre clearance bagage checked through Going to raleigh durham with united What gates and time needed to complete Any info gratefully received
You arrive in A or B and depart from C or D. If you have an hour that should be enough time.
I am flying from O'hare to IAD on United, and the from IAD to Bogota, Columbia on Avianca. The layover is 3 hr and 14 min. Will that be enough time? My wife and I are also bringing our 1 and 3 year old.
Yes, that is plenty of time. If both flights are on the same reservation then you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Flying into Dulles on a United Express with 1 hr 12 min layover to pick up connecting flight to Seattle, also on United. First flight is scheduled to arrive in Dulles at 7:15 on Saturday morning. Connecting flight leaves at 8:30. Looking at maps, looks like we will need to go between Concourse A and D. Is this enough time? Suggestions on best way to get there? Thanks for the help.
Take the AeroTrain or Mobile Lounge. You have enough time.
Hello,
I will arrive at Dulles from LAX with United at 7:15pm, gates C or D. Will have to claim my bag and recheck it for my 9:05pm departure to Paris by Air France. 1h50min time for this. Is it doable?
Thanks!
If it's two separate reservations, then yes, you have to go to the main terminal, claim your bags, re-check them with Air France, go through security and to your departure gate. That is a very difficult connection.
What do you mean by very diffcult connection? How long are the distances? What is the worst case scenario? Thanks for the fast reply!
It is difficult because you have to go to the main terminal, (takes 10-20 minutes), claim your bags (10 minutes), re-check them with Air France (10-20 minutes). At that point you've used up maybe 50 minutes and therefore have just an hour to get through security and to your gate and board your flight. And again, this is if everything goes smoothly.
ZAP,
This is about my gf, we arrive together at Dulles at 7:15pm but leave with different flights to Europe. I will have over 3h to do the same operations. Can I claim her bag and check it with Air France to win some time?
Could you please answer the question below? Thank you!
Hi,

I am flying domestic to Washington with united airlines with a 1 hour layover for a connecting flight also with United Airlines to Dublin. Will 1 hour be enough? Also will I have to collect my bag and check it in again? The flights are under one reservation.
All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

I am arriving at Dulles at gate D19 and have a 1 hr. 6 min. connection to another flight leaving at A1e--is the Mobile Lounge the fastest way to get there? And where in D terminal do you catch it?
Yes, the Mobile Lounge is the easiest way, just follow signs that say to the A concourse.
I will be flying from LHR to GRU via IAD,
will I re-check my luggage at Dulles? I had to do this travelling GRU to LHR at O'Hare.
The reason for my question is regarding liquids and duty free. If I purchase a 200ml perfume in London Do I transfer this to my checking luggage at Dulles, will I be able to take it in hand luggage or will it be confiscated?
Yes, in IAD you will have to 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. Yes, you will have to put the perfume in your checked bag in Dulles.
Hi, is 2 hours 15 minutes enough time to make a domestic to international connection at IAD, on different airlines (Delta for the domestic, Air France for the intl)? I will have to check my bags. Thanks
Sorry, didn't look like my original question had posted. Sorry for the repost.
