I have 40 minutes for a connecting flight on American Airlines. Should I change my flight?
Where are you going from and to? American Airlines does not have a hub at Washington-Dulles so it is fairly unlikely you are connecting there on American.
Leaving Boston MA and headed to Geneva Switzerland. I have a 40 min layover in Dulles. I'm flying United on all flights. Is 40 min layover enough time?
First time travelling on my own. I fly Icelandair to Iad (international) and arrive at 19.10 on Sunday. I then have separate booking/ticket to fly domestic with United at 22.10. so I have to pick up my baggage and clear immigration. Can you walk me through the airport please? Where do I go first and what happens then. I appreciate all advice!
How long does it normally take to clear the immigration? I am arriving with student visa (european passport)
I hope three hours is okay to get through everything? I have to check in again domestic because of the separate ticket..
My South African Airways flight arrives at 6:25am from Johannesburg. I then have to clear customs and immigration and fly on to Atlanta. Can I make the 7:55am Delta flight or should I book the 9:30am flight?
I would book the 9:30 flight since it sounds like you will be on two separate reservations.
i have 35 minutes after landing from Puerto Rico on flight 2022 to catch flight 2091 to Sacramento. Is this enough time? All flights are United
Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Puerto Rico is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both on the C/D Concourse.
thanks for the info - 2 of us use canes which slow us down a bit. Should we try to rebook to get more time in between flights?
I am landing at 07 25 by United from Vancouver. I have a separate booking of Emirates departing 10 55 . Is the time adequate. I am not a US citizen
Yes, that is enough time.
Even if I need to go thru security again ?
Yes, it is.
I arrive from Ottawa Canada at16:16 and need to transfer for Frankfurt in 1:49h. Will I have enough time? How would I get to the next gate ad do I have to do customs and security again?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa. All you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Once I land in Dulles (from Atlanta) I have an hour to make my connecting international flight to Dublin. Do I have to go to a different terminal for international flights in Dulles and do I have to go through security again?
No, all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate if both flights are on the same reservation. You should have enough time.
Hi I'm planning on flying from MCO to IAD to FCO tomorrow. The connection time at IAD is only 1hr and 10min, will this be enough time or will I have to leave the security area and then re-check? We are not bringing checked bags, only carry-ons.
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate if both flights are on the same reservation.
I'll be flying from Zurich to Washington and from there further to Houston with United Airlines. The connection time is 1h45. Is this enough time? Thanks.
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.
