Questions about connections in Newark.

Jump to last reply

Trying to book a trip to St Martin the last week of May and the best price on a flight is through United which is May 26th SEA>EWR>SXM (59 minute layover) and return flight is Jun 2nd SXM>EWR>SEA (1 hour 50 Min layover).

Is this enough time to get through Newark? Never connected through there so not sure what to expect.

I'm more concerned about the return flight, in which I will have to gather bags and clear customs+re check bags.

Anyone with experience with Newark would be appreciated....thanks!

Guess I might as well add that the next best price is a US Airways flight (*shudder* ) that is SEA>CLT>SXM (3 hour 30 minute layover which I know will be fine). The return is SXM>PHL>SEA (1 hour 38 Minute layover). Is an Hour and 38 minute enough to clear customs in Philly? The flight is 100 bucks more, but will pay it if Newark is cutting it way to close.

Another option is I can book the US Airways flight to SXM one way and purchase the United Flight back home through Newark if the Philly layover is too short.
