  • Will I make it to gate?
    Sep 24, 2016
    Arriving on UA421 from Houston and we have a one hour before we depart on UA 655 to Boston. Do we have enough time to get to our new gate and maybe get something to eat?


    Yes, that is enough time. Both gates will be on the C/D concourse and all you have to do is walk from one gate to the other. You might have some time to grab some fast food. There's not much on that concourse anyway.


  • Layover 1 hour from BNA to DUB
    Sep 23, 2016
    We will arrive from Nashville at IAD and will have a one hour layover before our flight to Dublin. Is that enough time to get to the flight to Dublin?


    If both flights are on the same reservation, yes, that is enough time.


  • Do I collect my baggage before connecting?
    Sep 22, 2016
    We arrive at IAD from Toronto for a 50 min layover before connecting to CAE. Do we need to get our baggage before connecting? Or will it be transferred for us?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • How long between terminals A &D via shuttle
    Sep 19, 2016
    How long on average using the terminal shutle between concourse A and concourse D?


    It shouldn't take more than 15-20 minutes.


  • Layover 40 min from MSP to FRA
    Sep 19, 2016
    We will arrive from MSP at IAD and will have a layover of 40 min. Is that enough time time to get the flight from IAD to FRA.


    Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • In from Paris, Out to Denver
    Sep 14, 2016
    All on United- 1:23 min layover, is that enough time to get from international security to the next flight? Don't you have to grab your bags, take them through customs, then recheck them?


    Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, re-check your bags, go through security and back up to the departure level. This is just enough time if everything goes perfectly assuming both flights are on United.


  • transfer time to Canadian flight
    Sep 14, 2016
    Arriving from LAX UA 513 at 4:25P transferring to UA 6077 leaving at 5:11 to Ottawa. is there enough time for transfer. Are the terminals far apart?


    Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. IAD only has one Terminal.


  • One hour layover from United to Aer Lingus
    Sep 13, 2016
    I am flying from AUS to DUB with a 1 hour layover at IAD(16:09-17:20). Will I have enough time to make that connection?


    Yes, if both flights are on the same reservation that should be enough time.


    I will be connecting United AUS to IAD and Aer Lingus IAD to DUB


    Yes are the flights on the same reservation or not?


    They are on the same reservation


    Then yes, you have enough time.


  • arrive 2:15pm from Vienna and catch a 3:41pm flight to San Francisco
    Sep 13, 2016
    Arriving from Vienna on Austrian at 2:15pm and connecting on United to San Francisco at 3:41pm. Is 1:26 enough with all the non-citizens security checks? Thank you!


    No, that's not enough time for an international to domestic connection at IAD unless your flight from Vienna arrives early.


    What's the minimum to have a chance? Thanks!


    If you had 10 more minutes I'd feel significantly better about your chances. If you had a half hour more I'd feel a lot better.


  • making connection for international flig
    Sep 13, 2016
    We are flying on UA6191 arriving at3:54 and need to make a 5:50 flight to Zurich UA52. Will we have any difficulty making this connection?


    That should be plenty of time.

  • 60 minutes for connection at IAD?
    Sep 8, 2016
    Arriving on either JetBlue or USAir from PIT with connection at IAD to JAX...is one hour enough time to make my connection?


    Jetblue and US Airways do not fly from Pittsburgh to IAD and only United flies from IAD to Jacksonville. Please double check the flights you are being offered.


  • Connection time?
    Sep 8, 2016
    Arriving from LHR on United connecting on United to CVG. 1 hr. 35 min. connection time enough?


    That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Thanks, I changed it to another connection anyway just to be sure


  • arrive at 4:16 from Portland then catching a 5:20 flight to Frankfurt
    Sep 8, 2016
    Is this enough time? What terminal does the Portland flight come in to?


    Yes, that is enough time. IAD only has one terminal - all gates are connected inside security. Are you coming from Portland, Maine or Oregon? Is your Frankfurt flight operated by United or Lufthansa?


    Portland Oregon and United


  • Changing terminals-enough time?
    Sep 10, 2016
    I'm travelling to South Africa in January 2017. I'm flying from Atlanta to IAD with United airlines (Domestic) and then I get on South African Airways to get from IAD to Cape Town (International.) I land at IAD at 4:16 pm at the domestic terminal. My flight to Cape Town leaves at 5:40 pm. That only gives me 1hr 24mins layover, is that enough time to get to international from domestic? Where do I have to go to get to the other terminal and do I have to go through security at IAD or in Atlanta?


    There is no "domestic" and "International" terminals at IAD. You will go through security in Atlanta. If both flights are on the same reservation then all you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which will likely be on different concourses but are connected inside security by the Aerotrain. You should have enough time if the flight from Atlanta is on-time.


    What happens if both flights from Atlanta and from iAd to Cape Town are on different reservation?
