How much time to check in at EWR

Jump to last reply

Right now, I'm booked for JFK to VIE through AMS on Jan 15. I had been worried about having only 1h50mn to connect at AMS (absolutely must be in Vienna for an event that evening, and the next flight out of AMS won't get in until late night).

Award seats have now opened up for an earlier flight leaving from EWR, with 4 hours to connect in CDG, so I'm considering paying $100 to change to that itinerary. Not only does 4 hours feel safer than <2, there are multiple back-up flights out of CDG to get to VIE that evening.

However, I can't leave work too early that day. In the past, leaving just after 4pm from Penn Station allowed plenty of time to take the NJ Transit / AirTrain to EWR for a 7:05pm flight. Is that still the case, or are they requiring more time for security and check in after last week's incident?
