We (family of 6) will be going from Atl to IAD on a domestic carrier and then going from IAD to Paris on icelandair. How much time do we need to recheck bags, etc. and depart IAD for Paris?
I would want at least 2.5 hours.
flight from Boston to Frankfurt. 45minute connection in Dulles. is that enough time? are the gates reasonably close
Yes, that is enough time if both flights are on United. All you do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both on concourse C/D.
no need to go through security again? I will be traveling with 4 people.
Correct, you don't have to go through security again,.

I'm coming from Toronto, connecting through Dulles on my way to Frankfurt. My layover is 1 hour and 14 minutes, though given that I'm flying late February, there's always a chance of snow/de-icing delays out of Toronto. Do you think this will suffice? Note that we do US customs before boarding the plane in Toronto.

Yes, that should be enough time, it even leaves some time for deicing.
gsp to iad with 40 minute layover then connecting to dtw. Is that enough time?
Yes, it's possible but leaves no time to spare if the first flight is delayed.
i am US Citizen , i am going to Canada, Feb 11th i am coming back from Canada (united flight ) to Oklahoma , my Layover at IAD airport only 50 minutes, That's enough time?
Yes, that is enough time. You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Canada on your return so all you have to do at IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank you so much
IND to IAD to Brussels. Connection time in IAD is 1 hour and 35 minutes. Is that enough time for an international departure?
If both flights are on the same reservation that should be enough time. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

I am flying from Montego Bay (Jamaica) to Geneva (Switzerland) with United via Washington Dulles. My flight arrives in Washington at 16:25 and my flight to Switzerland is at 17:35. Do I have enough time for the transit? Thank you.
No, that is not enough time. You need to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to to your departure gate.
Thank you very much. What is a realistic time for all the process from going through immigration to departure gate? Thank you.
90 minutes would be the bare minimum with 2 hours preferable.
Thank you!
Arriving from from Edinburgh at 15.40 into to Dulles then connecting flight at to Charleston SC at 17.05 giving us 1hr 25mins to make the next flight - is this realistic?
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Thanks, not sure what options we have now as both flights booked with United Airlines
I have flight from Orlando to Frankfurt on United via IAD and i have only 40 min layover
Is that enough time ?
Yes, it's enough time if the first flight is on-time but leaves no time to spare. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank you so much
