I have 40 minutes. What's the best way to go?
The Mobile Lounge.
I am arriving at IAD by Emirates flight from Dubai, at 8:45 AM and booked to connect to DL1093, departing at 5:30 PM. Please advise if this is sufficient time to clear immigration customs and security, and transfer between terminals.
There is an earlier flight of Delta departing at 12:20 PM, however having heard Washington is a very busy airport, and immigration customs could take time, I have chosen the later departure at 5:30 PM.
Would appreciate your advise,
Thank you.
Yes, that should be plenty of time. Immigration and customs at Washington-Dulles is usually not too bad.
Arriving Dulles United 525 connecting flight United 4944. Have to travel from main concourse C to Main concourse A. Do I need to go through security again at Dulles? Also, Arrives 11:50 and boarding be12:20pm for connecting flight. Is that enough time?
You do not have to go through security again. You have enough time.
I arrive by LH 7741 - operated by United @2120 connecting to LH 9267 departing @2210 - do I have enough time to connect - will have carry-on only
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
We have a 1hr 07min layover in Dulles, will we have enough time to get to the gate from the United gate to the Aer Lingus gate? Should I worry if the originating flight is delayed?
Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time and your bags are checked through.
I arrive at Dulles on Saturday at 14.35 hours with UA947 from Amsterdam. I have a transfer with UA1769 at 16.25 to Seattle. Do I have enough time for the transfer ? And at what gate will this transfer take place ?
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly. You find out your gates the day of your flight but both are on C/D.
Flying United from Vegas to Dallas to Dublin, only 45 mins between connecting flight in Dallas, is this enough time? What happens to my luggage? Worried it will not make it to Dublin!
You're typing "Dallas" but I think you mean "Dulles". All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Your bags are transferred for you. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
40 minute connection between flights... We arrive at 7:34 am and depart at 8:14 am on a Wednesday in August. Will we make it???
Forgot to mention both flights are United
If the first flight is on-time that's enough time but it leaves no time to spare.
My flight arrives from Cleveland at 920 and takes off for Dublin at 1005..will I make it?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time but leaves very little to spare.
Rome to Dulles, arriving at 3pm. I have a connection at 5:25pm to Cleveland. All United, all on the same reservation. Is this enough time if flight arrives on time? Thank you in advance!
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.
