I'll be arriving from narita and connecting to go to Rhode Island via same airlines.. but only have an hour connecting.. is there enough time?
No, an hour is insufficient time for an international to domestic connection at IAD.
Trying to book a return from Riyadh thru IAD with Saudia arrival at 1220pm. Connect flight is Delta to ATL. Unable to book DL leaving at 1445. Being bumped in the booking process to later DL around 1700 depart time from IAD. Anyone can share conx time in IAD for inbound intl flights?
The 1700 departure is the best option if you're only considering DL.
Thank you. Made a change to CDG conx instead for the lower fare.
Is is possible to travel from one terminal to another in IAD without leaving security? I have an Admirals Club membership bur a lay-over with United/Luftansa and would like to use the IAD Admirals club.
There is no admirals club at IAD. Also, IAD only has one terminal.
We are flying domestic from LAX to IAD, then connecting to a flight to Ottawa, Ontario. Where do we go through passport screening?
You will go through Canadian immigration and customs when you get to Ottawa. There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US.
Flying into IAD (Washington) from SAV (Savannah) at 21:10 and then to YYZ (Toronto) at 22:18. Is that enough time (with checked luggage)?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
If my flight arrvies at DCA at 2:18 on a weekend. Will I have time to get my bags and comfortably make a 6:30 international flight out of IAD? Would a taxi or car service be the best way to make the connection?
Yes, that should be enough time on a weekend. A taxi or car service would be about the same.
Flying on United from Narita, Tokyo to Dulles and then connecting to Harrisburg, PA. Layover is 3 hours 20 minutes so presumably that is more than enough time to clear immigration and customs, but by chance is there pre-clearance in Narita?
No, there is no preclearance at Narita. You have enough time.
I am flying to Washington Dulles from Singapore and then taking a connecting flight to New Orleans. It is United airlines throughout the trip. The transit time at 1 hour 50 mins, is it good enough with 1 checked in baggage?
There are no nonstop flights from Singapore to IAD - where are you stopping first?
I have 48 minutes upon arrival from Dublin to catch my next flight with United. Is that even possible. Are the arrivals and departures on same course? Thanks for help
It depends where you're flying to. All United and some United Express flights are on concourse C/D. So if that's the case then all you have to do at IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on C/D and it is possible. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin.
How many inches of snow tend to close the runways at Dulles? What's the guess for flights taking off Friday afternoon?
There's no way to predict it precisely. It depends on the how fast the snow is accumulating whether the airport crews are able to keep the runways clear or not. Also, it's likely that airlines will preemptively cancel flights in and out of DC if the weather looks to be quite bad.
