My daughter (16 yrs) flies from Madrid to Newark.In Newark she has to change plane for her ongoing flight to Panama. I am worried, she is not an experienced traveler. Do you offer UM services? If not, can you advise me anyone? Thanks a lot.
Hi, I had my flight from Newark to Dublin and upon arrival at home I noticed that some items (branded shoes) were stolen from my checked in luggage. Do you know any contact details where I can report it in the Newark airport? I haven't found anything online. Thanks!

My daughter is flying alone from Rome to Newark. Her phone is all messed up so i am trying to plan in advance where we should meet her. If her plane arrives in terminal B, where should we tell her to meet us after she goes through customs? I recall there being a tram at Newark? Is that before customs?
All terminals have an airlines specific gate for e.g.., see Terminal B

Services
Terminal B is the sole terminal in Newark Airport that offers an exclusive Meet & Assist Service. For further information, please call +1 877 854 5472.

I lost my wallet on 4/24/18 between 7pm-8:30 pm in terminal B. Any help to recover it would be greatly appreciated.
Hey there. My girlfriend will be arriving tomorrow 5:15 pm in Newark (Terminal C) from Puerto Plata (Domenican Republic) and her connecting flight will be at 6:30 pm to Zurich, Switzerland (website says Terminal C as well). It´s United Airlines. On the way to the US, immigration took her over 1 hour in Washington...How should she make it now on the way back? What happens, if she misses the flight, will the book her on next flight for free? She also carries bulk luggage (Kite surfing equipment) with her...has to get it from the baggage claim and check it in again. Calling the United customer service they can´t do anything about it...they say it will work...but I doubt...Thanks for your help!
She should be fine. If it's united to united flight not changing airlines. All within terminal C. 99 percent of the time that connection is very do able.
Baggage handling: Are there skycaps or other persons available, for hire of course, to assist passengers with lifting heavy bags both at new work and at destination in New York City?
There are skycaps at the Newark airport. If you take the train into New York, there will be nobody to help you there. You will also be on your own getting your bags onto the train.
I am a US citizen living permanently in Germany. My wife and three kids (7, 5, 3) are all German citizens. We will be entering the US through EWR from London for vacation.

Now: is there a chance for all five of us to go through customs together? Either international or better yet US lane? Point is after a 12 hour trip with three kids it is much easier together...😊

Greets and thx!
If it is their first time using ESTA they have to go through the agent line, not the express line for US/Canadian citizens/permanent residents and repeat ESTA users, but you can go with them.
If I book a flight that arrives at EWR from London at 3pm, will I have enough time to catch a 5:45pm flight on Southwest Airlines?

I'm wondering how long it typically takes to clear customs, gather luggage, travel to SWA's terminal and check-in.
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

What airline are you flying in on? That connection time is moderately risky.
The flight from London is on United.
Then yes, that is moderately risky.
Thanks. What would you say is a reasonable amount of time to allow for this type of connection?
I'd want over 3 hours to feel more comfortable.
