  • IAD UA connection
    Jul 27, 2016
    I only have 48 min at IAD , from domestic terminal to international terminal is this enough time


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


  • ARN --> FRA --> IAD 1:55 minutes --> DEN
    Jul 24, 2016
    Hi I have one booking with Lufthansa going from FRA to IAD and then to Denver with a 1 hr 55 min layover. The first two flights are with Lufthansa but the domestic flight is managed by United. The whole booking is made on Lufthansa so I guess I will get there but I am worried that I might miss the flight to Denver. I am from Sweden first time getting into the US only international flights made with the passport is to Japan and Canada. I have gotten the impression by reading here that 1:55 is pretty tight. The arrival at IAD will be on a friday at 15:55 and the flight to Denver departs at 17:50.


    You should have enough time - IAD is one of the better airports in the US for making International to domestic connections.

    Flying from roc 1hr 17min in iad then to atl via united , roundtrip. 1hr 28min going back, Will I be ok? As long as my roc flight is on time? First time in iad, how big is it?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. IAD is medium sized. It's smaller than ATL. Imagine ATL with just 3-4 concourses instead of 7 and it's very similar.


  • International Flight from Frankfurt to STL via IAD
    Jul 23, 2016
    I am a non US citizen traveling for the first time to US. I am having a connecting time of 1 hour 55 minutes at IAD. I have booked my tickets with United Airlines. Is the connecting time enough to clear immigration customs and security check? Will UA provide me another flight option if I miss my connecting flight?


    Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, if you miss your connection due to the first flight arriving late then United will book you on the next available flight to St. Louis, possibly through another hub such as Chicago or Houston.


    What if the delay is due to the immigration and security check? In that case will they provide me with another flight option?


    Yes, they should.

    Hello, I am flying from LHR to IAD arriving at 3:25pm. Then on a separate flight to MIA at 5:40pm. Is that enough time? Thank You.


    What airlines are you flying? Do you have checked bags?


    United from LHR and American to Miami. No check - only carry on luggage.


    OK then. Check in online for your AA flight online before you leave London and you should have enough time.


    Thank you!

  • HKG - DFW - IAD
    Jul 17, 2016
    Hi we are non US citizens 2 adults and 2 children coming in to DFW from HKG and then have a connecting flight to IAD . There is a gap of 4 hours between flights . Will this be enough for us and will we need to collect our bags even though both flights are with American Airlines and one booking ? We assume as of now we need to clear immigration , pick up checked luggage , clear customs and instead of exiting we following connecting passenger instructions and re check our luggage in again with American and then proceed to domestic departure gate . Assuming that American in HKG will give us boarding passes for the DFW-IAD leg. Thanks


    Yes, that should be enough time. The re-check desk is right after customs, then you will go through security and to your departure gate. Yes, AA should issue both boarding passes in Hong Kong.

    Hi, I'm flying into IAD with United at 11:26 am and will be leaving for Tokyo with United at 12:25 am. Will there be enough time?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate if the first flight is domestic.

    Either flight should be enough time.


    Thanks for the reassurance, much appreciated. K

    That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Is 1:40 hour enough time?

    I will arrive to IAD airport at 3:55pm coming from Frankfut by lufthansa airways. Then I have a domestic flight on silver airways at 5:35pm to Morgantown. Is 1 hour and 40 minutes enough? Keep in mind I have to go through to the border agency (not an American passport).. I have one bag only.


    That's just enough time if everything is on the same reservation and your flight from Frankfurt is on-time. Note that Silver flights are often late or canceled.


    Hi ZAP you don't have much faith in Silver Airlines?


    They try - they just can't hire enough staff to properly run their airline. Also, they will be ceasing all their IAD flights this fall so they don't really care about them. When they do get new hires, they send them to their Florida operation which will be all that remains when they close IAD.
