I see a bunch of maps in concourse a and I see gates 1-6 on some maps but I can't find a1f. I'm assuming it's near a1-6 but can someone confirm? And what's quickest way to a1f from c24 as I just have a little over 45 minutes? I'm very nervous cuz it's thanksgiving and will be packed tomorrow!!! Thank you.
Canadian arriving from Montreal (I assume US customs will be cleared in YUL)
transit to IAD, arrival at 1147am and leaving IAD at 1234pm (47 minutes between).
Both flights are United, unique reservation.
Will I make it?
Will my baggage make it?
Yes, that should be enough time for you and your baggage if the flight from Montreal is on-time.
Arriving at concourse D3 at 9:06 pm and have a connecting flight at concourse A1 at 10:00 pm. Do I have enough time and what is best/quickest directions from D3?
Follow the signs. You can take the AeroTrain or mobile lounge.
I get into Concourse A (A2A) at 9:15pm and leave from Concourse C at 10:09. Do I have enough time? And how do I get from Concourse A to Concourse C?
You use the AeroTrain. You should have enough time.
I arrive at 9:04 AM from Atlanta and need to catch an Emirates flight to Dubai leaving at 10:30 AM will I make it and do I have to go through TSA? Thanks
If the flights are on two separate reservations you will have to claim your bags, re-check them with Emirates and go through security. That is not enough time. What airline are you flying on the first flight?
I'll be flying United on the first flight
It looks like I get into gate d8 and leave from a3e but I don't see that gate listed on airport maps on united app. I have 50 minutes. Are there signs to point me to busses to take me to other gate and will I make it?
Yes, there are signs. You should have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I am coming from Atlanta to Washington then need to go to international to go to frankfurt
If both flights are on the same reservation you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Do you have any other questions?
I have same flight. Is there any security inspection between the gates?
Hi. I have a layover with only an hour layover. I arrive at 11:30 and the next flight is at 12:30 but all with the same airline, United Airlines. Will I be able to make it?
Where are you coming from and going to?
Orlando to IAD
and then IAD to LAX
You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both on the C/D concourse. You have enough time.
Hello, I will fly from SFO to YYZ with United Airline but there is a layover at IAD with only 1 hour 46 mins. I am Canadian, so do I need to clear customs first or can I go straight to my departure gate for my connecting flight? If I can go directly to the departure gate, will there be enough time to walk over? Thank you.
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.
thank you ZAP :)
I have a lay over of 45 minutes. Looks like on previous flights, the Toronto Flight comes to D and IAD to RIC is A.

Is that enough time?
It's possible but doesn't leave much time to spare. You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.
