Question About CO Terminal @ EWR

Wed Sep 05, 2007 3:23 am

Hi all,

Is the CO terminal at EWR split into international and domestic sections? I'm taking my gf on a suprise trip to Paris, and I'm hoping to conceal the fact of where we are going up until the exact moment that we actually have to check in. Just wanted to know if I had to worry about a taxi driver taking us there to ask me,"International or domestic?"

Thanks!
Jason

The check in areas are separate. The gates however are used for both domestic and International. If you check in online and do not check baggage there is no need to go to the international ticket counters and you go straight to the gate. Don't forget her passport.

IIRC, the upper levels of Terminal C are divided into International and Domestic with the International level being on top. However, you can easily move from one level to the other, so you can direct the driver to the domestic level and then transit upstairs (escalator or elevator).

You have to have her passport in hand to check in online, they ask some questions regarding the number etc., so unless you know where her passport is located and can get it without her knowing you can't check in online...even if you go to the airport, I believe you will have to swipe the passport at the kiosk in order to get your boarding passes, either way you are gonna get caught but have a blast trying to keep it from her!  Smile

Why not announce to her at the ticket counter where you are taking her and see how loud she screams???? Is this a proposal trip we are going on maybe?

Maybe if you find a nice ticketing agent he/she can help you conceal it?

Best of luck!

I never been to EWR but it may be good idea to plan with CO agency at EWR to keep it a secret and surprised until she arrived at gate that will go to Paris. I know that she would scream and jump all over place. Good luck!!

Not really going to happen, based on the fact she has to hold her ticket and go through security, with her passport, etc.

But something tells me she'll scream and jump all over at the check-in line just as much as if it was at the gate.

There is separate international check-in, so you must reveal the surprise at that time. But no, it's not a different terminal. It's terminal C either way, unless you told her you were going to chicago, dallas, washington, atlanta or one other city which I don't recall..., since they are in terminal A.

Actually going to be proposing the night before here in NYC. Then the trip is the romantic getaway the next day. She has no idea where she's going beyond the fact that I told her to take those days off from work.

We'll probably check one or two pieces of luggage so the online check in won't solve this issue, but I think if I can manage to get to the check in counter before she figures it out, that'd be great. Thanks for all the replies guys!

Oh yeah, can't wait to try COs 777 service!

...romantic as it may initially sound; in today's travel environment, that'd be essentially asking to be red-flagged.

Even besides the fact that it would look somewhat suspicious, as ConcordeBoy noted, the CO agents at EWR checkin are always so harried that they're going to want to get you checked in and moving as quickly as possible - so it's pretty unlikely that you'd find one who'd be willing to spend the time to do that with you. The ticket counters are a chronic mob scene. Literally, I've never seen any airline agent anywhere speed through a standard checkin as fast as the CO CSR's at Terminal C. They might not be super friendly, but they sure know what they're doing...

I remember when my family and I flew EWR-SJU last Christmas. We walked up to an agent at a Continental.com Bag Drop line, and it went something like this...

"Lastnamewhereareyougoinghowmanybags?"
"Cunningham, San Juan, 3"
She slapped the tags on in about 5 seconds. "Okaythey'redonegate87next!"

My Mom was like, "Well, she isn't going to win any awards for being friendly, but it was definitely quick!"

Hehe, I'm absolutely 100% positive that she doesn't come here and read this site. Although she did get me a cool airliners.net mug once...

Upper level is for international, middle is for domestic. But whatever you do, get to EWR early because security is by far the worst with lines.

That's also Terminal A, but I wouldn't be concerned. I don't think its really posted anywhere and I take it she probably won't research it beforehand. Best of luck!
