I will be traveling from Clarksburg and have a 1-hour 3-minute layover. I have 2 questions. 1- Will I have enough time to get from my arrival to my departure gate? I think my departure gate is D. WHat is the best way to get there?
I'm flying United from PHL to PUJ, with a connection in IAD. I am only taking a carry on and flying United on both flights - will 1hr 10min be enough time to make my connecting flight? Not sure if I'll have to go through security again but, if so, I worry I won't have enough time. Thanks!
All US citizens. Flying on United from Barcelona scheduled to arrive to IAD at 2:25 PM and depart to LAX at 4:00 PM. United Agent told me I wouldn't have to clear Immigration at IAD but rather do all that in LA. (Having hard time believing they would isolated group of passenger just for customs purposes) Will I have enough time and do I have to re-check luggage? Thank you!
You will have to clear Customs at your first point of entry into the U.S., which in this case is IAD. 1,5 hours is VERY tight, if you arrive on time. Moreover, you'll have to collect your luggage and drop it off at the transfer carousel.
Hi. Arriving at Dulles from Florida and need to clear bags and then check in flight to Paris in 2 hours as tickets are separate. Is that cutting it too tight ?
You don't need to "clear" bags unless you're changing airlines and the two airlines are not interlined. Since you're going from Domestic to Int'l - you'll simply need to just go to your gate. Again, that depends if your ticket is on one reservation.
Hi, I will be flying in from RDU via United and flying out to Tokyo on ANA, connecting through IAD and have only 1hr 5mins to clear customs and re-check baggage. Will that be enough time? Both flights are booked through ANA in one ticket and the transit time is suggested by ANA. Thank you!
There is no US Customs when leaving the US and you don't have to do anything with your bags either. Just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
We are coming from Cancun and have a connecting flight to Frankfurt 2 hours later with checked baggage. I just realized we will have to go through immigration and clear and re-check our bags, ist that correct? Is 2 hours enough? Both flights are United/Lufthansa ! Thank you!
