Arriving from manchester uk going through IAD to EWR.united gives me 1hr 48mins.(took over an hour to clear customs at EWR in January) with cuts to tsa staff at immigration what are my chances when the gate closes well before take off time.
That should be enough time. IAD isn't quite as bad as EWR. Also there's a lot of IAD-EWR flights so if you miss one then you'll just be re-booked on the next one.
i will be arriving from Charlotte, NC with United [email protected] 1131 am. how do i get to UA international gates? i only have 1 hr 49 min to catch my flight to Tokyo. Please advise on the fastest way to get to my gate.
You will arrive at IAD at either of the domestic Midfield Conourses A - C and will depart from international Concourse C. Note that C gates C1-30 & D gates D1-32 are connected by a walkway, and a shuttle takes you from gate A6 arriving between D gates 15-21 & 9-11. (D gates cannot be accessed by train). You have plenty of time.
I am scheduled to get arrive from Syracuse at 21;00 (assuming no delays) and get my connecting flight to Manchester England at 22:16. I am disabled and can only walk slowly and am worried I will not make my Manchester flight...any advice is most welcome.
1. Dulles Airport is not easy to get around. Its Main Terminal has connected Z gates. Thereafter the Midfield concourses follow as three separate buildings divided by A & B gates, C & D gates, and (gates under construction). Only A, B & C gates are connected by underground Aero Train, while D gates are served by shuttle bus near gate A6. Your ticket should indicate which gates you arrive at/ depart from, i.e., A6, B63, C14, D29 - also look on arrival at overhead screens for your departing flight number, gate & time. 2. Follow signs 'TO BAGGAGE CLAIM / GROUND TRANSPORTATION'; domestic arrivals at A, B or C gates should follow the AeroTrain sign. The train runs in a continuous loop from main terminal's post-security area at the center of the midfield concourses A/B & C/D and takes only minutes. Mobile lounge shuttle takes you to gates D1-32. If you feel that you need wheelchair assistance - contact your airline, or your flight attendant. You have enough time though to get on your own from gate to gate. Good luck!
Hi there. I am arriving on a United Airlines flight from Boston arriving at 16h04 and have to connect to a SAA flight departing at 17h40.Is this enough time?
While United uses at IAD Midfield Concourses A, B, C & D (look at your ticked for your gate number - i.e., A32) while South African Airways uses Concourse B. While you can walk between Concourses A & B, you need to take the AeroTrain to C gates. D gates are only served by shuttle (mainly used for arrivals). As arriving passenger, follow signs "to Baggage claim / Ground Transportation" - then domestic arrivals at A, B or C gates should follow AeroTrain sign. You have enough time.
