United Flights Using Terminal-B at EWR Question

Fri Feb 21, 2020 1:00 pm

I’m sitting here in the EWR Terminal-C United Club and see several United flights docked over in Terminal-B.

I was just curious, is there any rhyme or reason for which flights dock there?

Are there certain flights from destinations that arrive there or is it luck of the draw when they arrive?

Cheers,
Whatever

Many UA international flights will arrive into Terminal B.

Right, but I was wondering if it’s generally the same flights each day or if they are just randomly assigned there every day.

My guess is random, but no clue why or how the flights are selected for Terminal B. I know the day before our arrival from MXP last August the flight arrived Terminal C, but the next day we parked at Terminal B.

In 2002, I flew Continental SAN-EWR-ATL. I was being re-routed by US Airways after they had to cancel their red-eye, so I was rebooked on this flight.

Coast-to-coast in 4:15 with a wicked tail wind. Watched the airport come alive, as we were the first to arrive that morning.

My connecting flight to ATL was, to my surprise, in the B gates, which necessitated moving out of the lovely C gates to the functional but claustrophobic B gates. I did inquire at the gate as to the reason for the terminal change, and it was explained that Continental wanted to keep flights to competitors hubs at a minimum, as connections such as mine were relatively rare, compared to the other cities CO customers would be connecting to. In fact, most of the traffic on that EWR-ATL flight were passengers arriving at EWR to go to ATL.

Sounds like UA might be doing the same thing.
