|Quoting HAMAD (Thread starter):|
I leave in less than 24 hours, i leave dubai on United Business class flight 977. now when we land into dulles (IAD) the flight switches from international to domestic, meaning that we have to disembark, clear customs and re-check our luggage and reboard, not necessarily the same plane, but a smaller plane.
Dulles has always been a final destination for me, and this is the first time ever that i land into dulles as a transit passenger to use the immigration at terminal C. my question is would landing at 6:37 AM and having a departure to chicago at 8:00 am give me a sufficient time to clear customs, claim and recheck my bag, then board?

People do it every day of the week. There is a small FIS / Customs station built into concourse C so it will not be necessary for you to visit the International Building.
|Quoting LAXintl (Reply 2):|
I dont believe the Terminal-C FIS is used for the AM flights including DXB, and everyone must clear at the main terminal.
|Quoting SA7700 (Reply 3):|
I believe they do. SA gets in at 06h00. The last 2x times I flew into IAD with SA, transferring pax were separated from O&D pax. Only JNB-IAD O&D pax go through the main terminal FIS now.
