Another "Enough-Time-to-Clear-Customs & Change-Planes?" Question

Jump to last reply

I'm looking at flights from Florence, Italy to Nashville, TN in March '14 (probably March 12th or 13th). United seems to have the only decent options.

One of the itineraries gives me 1:05 to change planes in Frankfurt, and 2:15 in Chicago.

The other option gives me 1:50 in Newark.

I'm no concerned about Frankfurt, but I'm guessing I'll have to collect luggage and clear customs then re-check the bags through to Nashville at ORD or EWR. Does that really seem like enough time? I called United and the agent said that if it's offered on the website then it's sufficient time. She also said to typically allow 2 hours (and the change in EWR is only 1:50).

I seem to recall an instance of horrendous lines and missing a flight with what had seemed like more than enough time, but can't recall if there was some extenuating circumstance.

Whaddya think???

Thanks!
