I have a flight that lands from Munich to IAD that lands at 3:25pm then have a connecting domestic flight to Indianapolis at 5:05pm. Is this enough time to go through customs? If not, what happens if I miss my flight?
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. If you miss your connection you will be rebooked on the next available flight to Indianapolis, possibly through Chicago.
i have a United flight from Marseilles via Munich to IAD arriving at 3:35pm. Will I have enough connecting time to take a 4:35pm Southwest flight to TPA
No, that is absolutely not enough time.
Hi, I flying home to Ireland from Orlando with a change of planes in IAD (I am a UK citizen)....is 1 hr connection time in IAD sufficient?
Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ireland so all you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate if both flights are on the same reservation.
thanks Zap.......

We are flying uNited from CLT to IAD and then connecting on another united flight to Lisbon Portugal. Will a 1 hour and 20 minute layover in IAD be sufficient time ? Thanks
Yes, all you have to do in IAD on the way to Lisbon is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Traveling from Mexico City through Dulles to Frankfurt. Will I have to clear customs in Dulles even though it's just a connection?
Yes, you will have 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 your departure gate.

Thanks ZAP - sorted
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.
