EWR international-> domestic connection time?


Iím looking at an international -> domestic connection at EWR arriving from Asia in the evening (5-7pm) and several domestic connection times ó one at 2.5hrs and one at 4hrs. If I am traveling business on United, with GlobalEntry and no checked bags would 2.5hrs be enough time to go through immigration customs and back through security and if so, enough time to go to United Polaris lounge to order a la carte? or would the 2.5hrs be just enough time to get through everything and arrive at the gate for the connection but not much more?

If you arrive on time, with GE and no checked bags you should have plenty of time to visit the Polaris lounge with a 2.5 hour connection. With 4 hours you could throw in a nap.

With GE and being in Business -- you'll likely be through Immigration about the time the poor souls at the back of Coach are exiting the plane -- only a slight exaggeration. And with no checked bags you'll be in the Lounge before you know it. Of course that depends on if you land on time.
