IAD-GRU Flight With United

Wed Apr 28, 2004 12:37 pm

Has anyone been on the IAD-GRU flight with United recently? I am flying that route Friday evening. Also, how do they treat close connections? I depart GSO 7:10 and arrive 8:30. And the IAD-GRU flight leaves at 9:30.

How is check-in and the actual flight? Are they on time or late frequently?

Thanks!

I flew UA861 back in December. It was a good flight. If you're in economy, you'll have a PTV on your 763 and the food was really pretty good. You should have no problem with your connection. IAD starts to get quiet that time of night and you can get to your next gate quickly.

GRU is a weird airport. It seems stuck in 70s styling and has an annoying PA system.

Have fun in Brazil

Tripseven says it best. GRU is a peculiar airport.

But get some KUAT and bring it home!! UA is pretty good to Brazil I did ORD-GRU twice and have no complaints (except my company doesn't pay for biz anymore!)!
