cab from newark penn is $15 and pretty close at around 10 - 15 minutes. probably quicker than air train anyway because cabbie drops you off right at your terminal.

every single amtrak train will stop at newark penn.

Ok, the 8 hour wait is out, i changed by ticket to depart from EWR. My options are to drive to NHV and take a NHV-EWR train arriving at 6:47, take the SPG train arriving at 8:03, or do some other combination like heading into NYC for a while as suggested and taking a more local train after that.

I would take the 8 hour layover option and either spend some time in Manhattan, go watch a movie, get a massage or whatever fits your fancy. The other options leave too many variables for my taste.

87 minutes to go from Terminal A to B

I have the following connection and wonder wheter it's doable:
  • Arrival from GLA on a Thursday at 11:30 in Terminal B
  • Immigration with EU passport
  • No checked luggage
  • Can use priority line at security as *A Gold
  • Departure to ORD at 12:57 from Terminal A

Is this doable? If I miss the connection, will it be hassle-free to get rebooked on another flight?

Connection time @ EWR: Terminal B > Terminal C

Have a question about my connection time in EWR. Will be arriving from Copenhagen on SAS (in C, not that that matters) at 2:50 PM in Terminal B and need to connect to a UA flight to LAX in Terminal C at 4:45 PM (in F.) So that's just shy of a 2 hr connection time.

I'm speaking on a panel at a conference and the conference booked all of this through an unknown travel agent--but I assume that it's a legal connection time in theory. In practice, that might be a whole other story.

But reading some past threads on here on this same subject it seems like even with that connection time that, depending on the foot traffic that day, that this could in fact end up being very tight.

A few questions:

-is it true that even with our bags checked through to LAX we'll still have to claim our bags, go through CBP at EWR and re-check our bags with UA and then head through TSA in Terminal C?

-will enrolling in Global Entry have an advantage in this scenario?

Yes, you'll have to claim your bags, go through customs and re-check them, the latter being very quick, since you just have to hand your already tagged luggage to an agent soon after clearing customs.

Yes, from what I hear. I've seen some nasty lines at EWR during European arrivals time.

Unless there is a delay on your flight from Copenhagen, you should be fine.

Global Entry would speed your way through immigration, but won't do anything to speed up the arrival of your checked bag or the line at customs (which is usually not a problem).

To me the biggest hassle is the need to go through security again before you can board your connection. Again, though, this shouldn't be so much of an issue that you would miss your connection.

Question Transfer EWR Intl-Dom/Cash upgrades/E+

Hello,

I probably will fly STR-EWR-DEN on UA on a Saturday. The flight from STR will arrive at 12:40pm and I have 2h49min left for immigration and transfer. Is this possible without being in a hurry?

Is it possible to get cash upgrades for the domestic sector? If so, where can I buy them and could someone estimate the fee for EWR-DEN?

As collect M&M miles, I assume that in case of a cash-upgrade I will not get any additional M&M miles!?

My last question: Should I prefer row 20 or 21 if ugrading at least for E+?

It depends on which part of terminal A. There are three piers. If it's a UA/CO express flight you'll be fine. If not, you'll have to exit the secure area, take the airtrain and reclear security.

connect time in Newark to international flight

I have a reservation on Fare Lock and am wondering whether 50 minutes is really sufficient time to connect to an international flight, LBB-IAH-EWR-BFS. I also have 50 minutes to connect in IAH and will likely be coming into something like B84L, but haven't flown into IAH for several years and am not sure what gate I'm likely to end up at for the flight to EWR . . . probably some C gate?

Thanks.

I think that 50 min on an international connection is very tight in EWR. You might arrive in terminal b and might have to recheck luggage and then make your flight from C.

That's how it works in the US if connecting from an int'l flight
