MCT for EWR (2012)



https://www.newarkairport.com/at-airport/connecting-flights



United Airlines operates an "air side" shuttle bus between Terminals A and C from 5:00am to 10:00pm. In addition, United also operates a shuttle bus connecting Terminals A and C to terminal B (pier 3, used by Star Alliance carriers), but not in the opposite direction. The shuttle bus is available at gate A28 and C70 as illustrated in the image above. The shuttle drops off passengers at the terminal B through the service entry, that requires walking up 2 flights of stairs - there is no elevator. Only the front bus doors will open for alighting at terminal B.This service is free and you will not have to go through TSA security again. Please note this shuttle is operated at the sole responsibility of United Airlines and is subject to modification at their discretion.

I'm surprised UA sells this as a legal connection (can't get into my EF account at the moment.)
And when does boarding end?

Exactly. I see a lot of questions like the OPs and wonder how they are computing connection time. Are they taking into account when boarding ends or using departure time?

Even if it is 10 minutes before departure, would you want the stress of a 30-minute connection? And you'd end up all sweaty and with nowhere to put your stuff. No thanks.

From the United website:

When do I need to be at the boarding gate?

For flights within the U.S., all customers must be on board the aircraft 15 minutes before the scheduled departure time. We recommend being at the boarding gate at least 15 minutes before departure to ensure that youre on the aircraft before the doors are closed.

For international flights, we encourage you to be at the gate no later than 30 minutes before your scheduled departure.
Pretty vague for International.

Thanks everyone... this is my first bit of travel since the Fun and Excitement began, and I never would have taken a 40 minute turnaround before the Late Unpleasantness on any connection, even domestically. I spoke with my corporate agent today and got them to rebook me, a third time, on the outbound flights that they should have put me on the first time I called...

So now I have a comfy 2 hours layover in IAD. 40 minutes was really suspicious to begin with, I appreciate the validation of my apprehension. Personally, I don't, at all, like to run through an airport, especially one that I very seldom travel through.

So you are connecting to FRA in IAD rather than EWR? Probably a sensible overall choice.

I think it's a bit vague because it "all depends". I've seen INTL flights held at the gate even past scheduled departure time when it's for a connecting passenger. They aren't going to do that for someone who checked in at that airport (in this case, EWR) but will often page him/her before they get ready to close the door. Casual observation tells me they might close the door as early as T-30 if all the expected passengers are on board.

Sure, always possible for United to choose to keep the door open. I just find it a bit strange they don't have a firm cutoff published on the website to cover themselves like they do with Domestic.

I know print-at-home domestic BP have notes at the bottom, including the "must bet at the gate 15 minutes before departure" language. Curious if an International version has the same verbiage. I haven't paid that much attention to them.

Trying to figure out the minimum connecting time at Newark from an international flight to a domestic flight....

We would be arriving into EWR on La Compagnie from Milan and then connecting to either American, Delta or United for our flight home.

Any info & advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

We would be arriving into EWR on La Compagnie from Milan and then connecting to either American, Delta or United for our flight home.

Different airlines on different tickets? Don't forget that if you are checking bags, you will need to meet a baggage cutoff deadline at EWR. For domestic flights at EWR the UA cutoff is 45 minutes. I'd allow an absolute minimum of 2hrs. With bags I'd allow an absolute minimum f 2.5hrs.

An excellent question followed by excellent advice - many thanks!

I do not believe that La Compagnie interlines with either AA, DL or UA so we shall prepare for the worst....and may have to spend the night at a hotel near EWR.

Is just over an hour time enough to make a stop in the Polaris Lounge? Will be arriving from houston on UA 2494 connecting to UA 64. Fortunately have 3 hours in Houston, but an hour and a quarter in Newark. Upon our return we have nearly 3.5 hours, will we get through with customs to enjoy a Polaris visit? Thanks!
