I am transitioning through IAD from Toronto to Johannesburg. What is the minimal time need to catch my connecting flight. Will only have hand luggage.
Since you pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto, all you need is like 45 minutes.

Arriving into Dulles from Dubai at 0810 in the morning and departing on Delta airlines at 0940. Is this enough time to clear customs/Immigration and move on to my connecting flight. I have no checked bags to pick up, just my carry on and I'm a US citizen. Just haven't gone through Dulles in about 10 years, so I'm not sure if this is enough time or not. Do they still use those buses to transit to the various terminals or is there a train now?
With no checked bags you have just enough time if everything goes smoothly. There is a train now.
Im on a United flight from Richmond to London Heathrow connecting at Washington Dulles, its seems I only have 55 mins between flights, will this be enough time ?
Thanks
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi I have a 48 min connection time for a United trip from Toronto (Pearson) to Jacksonville. Is this enough time to make it?

Thank you
Yes, since you pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto, all you have to do at IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Oh okay ZAP. Though was about the tendency of planes taxiing on the runways adding to the time to arrive? Would that cut into the 48 mins?

Also the incoming plane is a small Embraer jet (United Express), I don't know if small planes tend to be on time more or be delayed more...
IAD is not a delay-prone airport. Expected taxi time is counted into your scheduled departure and arrival times.
I am flying from st louis to dulles on United and then to Paris also on united out of dulles. I will have just one carry on bag. I have a layover of 1 hour and 50 minutes, is this enough time
That is plenty of time. All you have to do on your way to Paris is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi
I am leaving Toronto at 7:30 pm, arriving at Dulles at 9:00 pm. My flight to Lisbon leaves at 10:15 pm. Same ticket, same airline (United).

I am told I clear customs in Toronto. My questions are:

1. Do I still have to go through a security checkpoint at Dulles?

2. Is this enough time?

Thank you
All you have to do in IAD is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
I have a 45 minute layover for my flight from Toronto and connecting to a flight to Japan. Is this enough time?
Yes, that is enough time if both flights are on the same reservation. You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.
I'm transiting through Washington over the weekend and would like to take a shower in the lounge as I'll be coming from a long flight and getting onto another one.

I have a 2 hour layover (United airlines).

How long does it take to get from international transit to the lounge (and then the lounge to C concourse). Will I have enough time?
That will be pretty difficult in the time you have. Are you coming in on Turkish? If not that lounge might not even be open.
