  • Layover from Dublin to San Francisco
    Oct 30, 2012
    Hi all, My mother is travelling to see me at Christmas. She will be arriving from Dublin (Ireland) on United UA127 at 3.30PM and her connecting flight to San Francisco (UA1617) will leave at 5.20PM. My question is whether 1Hr 50 mins is enough time to go through customs and immigration? The next available option will have her laying over for 5 1/2 Hrs! Thanks for your help in advance


    Tell your mother to make sure to go through U.S. Customs control at Dublin Airport - saving her time on arrival at IAD and making her a 'domestic arrival'; she has enough time. United uses Concourses A, B, C, D (with coresponding gates). On arrival she should follow signs TO BAGGAGE CLAIM / GROUND TRANSPORT and should follow the AeroTrain Sign to either A, B or C domestic gates.


  • Cancelled flights

    Passengers coming in on ANA flight 002 & making connections on UA 3757 which has been cancelled. What will happen to them?


    As of this morning's news 9,000 flights have been canceled due to the Monster Hurricane approaching the East Coast, going all the way inland to the Great Lakes. I cannot give you advice as to what happens to all the passengers stranded, but express my deep concern for their well-being.

    I have a flight from Philadelphia that arrives at 7:10am at IAD. The flight is operated by Trans States Airlines/United Express. I have a 1 hour and 50 minute layover to catch my international flight to El Salvador at 9am (also a United flight). I have never been to IAD before and have read some terrible reviews. Will this be enough time to catch the flight?


    United Express at IAD Airport uses Concourse A, gates A1-A6. On arrival, follow signs 'To Baggage Claim / Ground Transportation' and then follow the AeroTrain sign which gets you to the B & C gates - United uses A, B & C gates (it also uses D gates, which are not served by the AeroTrain,, but by shuttle b from Concourse A (I doubt that your departure will be from a D gate). Look at overhead screen on arrival for your departing flight number, gate & departure time. You have plenty of time.
