Hello. My question would be on which I thank you for your answer. I would arrive from LAX to IAD than connection flight to VIE (-Vienna), with checked-in luggage. I would only have 35 mins between arrival and departure time (due to change in flight time). I would be checked-in to all way through. Would the 35 mins be enough? Do I need to go through customs and pick up my luggage and then re-check it again? Thank you for your help.
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate but you will have to change concourses. This is a difficult connection and is only possible if the flight from LAX is on-time.
I will arrive at IAD at 412pm and I need to get to South African Airways check in gate for a flight leaving at 5:40. I will not have an checked bags. Will that be enough time
That should be enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I just got a call from Dulles, I sent an email. The representative said I will land at Gate D and can walk or tske the shuttle to Gate B - 37. He said it will take 5-10 minutes. So as long as that glight is on time, Im good. Thanks for your response.

I arrive on United at Dulles 3:30 pm June 13 from Lisbon and leave at 5:15 for San Francisco. Is the 1 Hour 45 Minute layover enough time to clear customs and get to my connection? Thank you.
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thank you, ZAP! By the way, how do you know this information?
United changed flight times. Will have 1 hour layover in IAD from CLE on a Sunday evening to catch the last flight to Dublin. No checked bags, but is an hour tight? I asked for other options, but that would re-route me through EWR, which I try to avoid.
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
We just received notification that our connection time to make outr flight to MUC on Lufthansa has been reduced to 60 minutes. It appears our flight from BNA will arrive at concourse D and our Munich flight will depart from concourse B. Even if the first flight arrives on time, this seems like a very tight connection and really no slack if we arrive late. The MUC flight is the last one of the night. Is this a realistic connection?
That is enough time but indeed doesn't leave much time to spare. However, I'd still say it's realistic.
On Friday August 19 2017 I am booked to travel from London LHR to Dulles IAD and then onto to Dallas DFW on United Airlines.

I arrive at IAD 3:10PM and depart to DFW at 5:39PM with a layover of 2 hours 20 mins. Is this sufficient time to clear Immigration, Customs, grab the bags & then re-check bags? I have never been to IAD or traveled on UAL.

Thanks in advance.
Yes, that is enough time.
I'm bought tickets to fly to Manila (MNL) with United. So My flights are TPA to IAD layover 1hr 30mins, Transfer to IAD to NRT with United.
Arrive at NRT, I have to transfer to Nippo airlines to fly to MNL. Layover time 1hr 50 mins.
Is that enough time to get to my connection flights?
Yes, all those connection times are sufficient.
I will be flying from Raleigh-Durham RDU to Washington Dulles IAD on United on May 9th. I bought this ticket as a one-way ticket; then, I bought a separate ticket from IAD to Munich MUC on the same day (flying with Lufthansa). Do I have to leave the terminal after arriving from RDU and then checking in at IAD as if I were just arriving to the airport? Or, can I present my itinerary to Munich to a gate attendant in order to be issued a boarding pass from IAD to Munich?
The United agent in Raleigh Durham should be able to take care of everything for you, but if they can't, then yes, in IAD you will have to exit security, claim your checked bags if you have them, re-check in with lufthansa, and go through security.
Traveling from Pittsburgh, PA to San Juan on 5\27\17 with a 50 minute layover at Dulles. Is 50 minute long enough if I need to change gates/terminals/concourse? Thanks.
Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Pittsburgh is on-time.
I am looking at connection times for 04/27/2017 United flight from Birmingham GB to Fayetteville NC. Arrives EWR at 12 pm and departs for IAD at 2:59 pm. Arrives IAD 4:22 pm and departs for FAY at 5:15 pm and is last United flight to FAY for the day. Is there enough time to make each connection?
Yes, those connection times are sufficient. They put in a lot of padding on the EWR-IAD flight. It only takes about 30-40 minutes in the air.
Thank you. Wanted to be sure 53 minutes at IAD was enough connection time.
Yes, it should be enough time.
