Thanks in advance for helping me. I'm flying in March with United from Grand Rapids, ariving at 4:37 PM. I'll be leaving with TAP towards Lisbon at 6:05 PM. It are 2 separate reservations. Do I have enough time to transfer flights? I'm not an US citizen if that changes things with customs. Do I have enough time or should I change my flight?

I'm flying United from Washington DC to EWR Terminal A and next plane will leave one hour later in C with United to Denmark. Is that enough time?
Also, I have checked baggage - Do I need to collect and re check?
United doesn't fly to Denmark, so your second flight will be on SAS from Terminal B. You don't have to do anything with your bags if both flights are on the same reservation. Just take the shuttle bus to your departure concourse in Terminal B. You have just enough time.
Thank you, forgot to mention that I will have a second layover in Frankfurt (Newark to Frankfurt with United). Will that change anything?

i have a flight from Detroit to Delhi ( connecting at Newark ) with layover time 1 hour 55 minutes and i have checked baggage.
1) do i need to collect baggage again at newark and check in again for Delhi ?
2) would i need to go through security again ?
3) Is 1 hour 55 minutes enough time ?

On my return from Delhi to Detroit ( connecting at Newark) , layover is 1 hr 15 mins again I'll have checked baggage.
1) do i need to collect baggage again at Newark and check in again for Detroit ?
2) would i need to go through security & Immigration at Newark ?
3) Is 1 hour 15 minutes enough time ?
On your way to Delhi all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you arrive in Terminal A, there is a shuttle inside security to Terminal C where you depart. You have enough time. On the return you do not have enough time as that way you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, go to your departure terminal and through security. 75 minutes is not enough time.
With a connecting time of 1.35h changing from UA to SAS. Arriving from Cancun and connecting to Copenhagen.
Is it enough time?

Do you know if it's the same terminal?
Thank's in advance 😊
You will arrive in Terminal B or C and depart from Terminal B. You barely have enough time if everything goes perfectly.
We are coming in to Newark at Terminal A through United and have 1.5 hours before the next departure from Terminal B through Lufthansa. We have some checked bags as well. How do we get there and is there enough time? Thank you!
There is a shuttle bus inside security. You should just have to take that to your departure concourse. You should have enough time.
United just changed my flight to a much later time. I'm not really happy about it but I want to find out if I have to change to an earlier flight so I'll be certain that I catch my connecting flight. I'll be arriving at Newark at 4:37 PM with United, and I'll be leaving with TAP at 6:05 PM.

I have no idea how far it is, and how long customs is going to take. I know that I have to transfer my luggage myself.

Where are you arriving from? Are both flights are on the same reservation or two separate reservations?
I'm flying in from Grand Rapids MI, and no it are 2 separate reservations.
I have incoming flight from Beijing, arrive around 5:30 PM,on UA terminal B
Connection to Toronto Canada ,8:40 PM
On air Canada terminal A
I am wondering do I need to claim my baggage and go through the custom?
And would it be enough time for me ?
Yes, you need to claim your bags to take them through US Customs then re-cheeck them. You have plenty of time.
I have a 12 hour layover between my domestic and international flights. First leg from Atlanta to Newark then Newark to Tokyo. It is on the same airline and I believe that it's from in the same terminal.

Can I check in for both flights in atlanta and then just stay overnight on the terminal for the following flight or do I have to recheck in for my international flight in Newark.

Thanks in advance for the help.
You'll have to claim your bags overnight. Your connection is too long.
Thanks for the response. I have a few follow up questions that I would appreciate your feedback on...
1) Once I claim my baggage at baggage claim, I am assuming I can spend the night at the airport if I choose to. Is this possible or done by other passengers?
2) I am guessing the following morning, I would just have to check in for the international flight per the usual process... ie 3 hours before the flight etc...

I'm flying to Canada in a week and on the way home I'll go from Toronto to Newark and then continue to Europe. In Newark I will have one and a half hour to get on my next flight. I'm landing at terminal A and the next flight leaves from terminal C. According to the booking company I'll have to transit my luggage as well. I know this is short of time but there's no other option.
Does the re-checking of the luggage take a lot of time? How do I get to terminal C the fastest? (My guess is the train but I also read something about a bus)
I might be able to pack smaller for hand luggage only but then I wont be able to run through the airport, so that might not be a better option.

Thankful for any help.
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. If both flights are on United all you have to do is take a shuttle bus from the gates in Terminal A to Terminal C and board your flight. This only takes about 20-30 minutes.
Does one have to claim baggage and go through security again when changing terminals at Newark?
If the first flight is domestic and both flights are on the same airline, then no, you don' t have to claim your baggage. Where are you flying from and to and on what airline?
From Chattanooga to Hartford. Flying United will have checked luggage and then change planes in Newark. So you are stating I do not have to pick up luggage and haul to another terminal? United did state that there will be a terminal change during layover.
Also, do I need to go through security again? Layover is 38 minutes.
You don't have to do anything with your checked baggage. If you arrive in Terminal A and depart from Terminal C, United runs a shuttle bus between them inside security. You have just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
