I am flying from Chicago to Aruba with a connecting flight in Newark. Between the landing time and take off time is 35 minutes. Is it a viable travel plan? I am flying United.

    An important 'detail' - are both flights a part of booked flight on single booking site/airline? – Danubian Sailor Jan 9 '18 at 20:12

  • yes the flight was booked on single booking site/airline. O'hare had no direct flights that day. – erinsusan79 Jan 9 '18 at 20:18

    Single booking should help, but you could have a long run in Terminal C (most of United's traffic) If you're in the back of the plane, you may waste a lot of that just getting off. – cdkMoose Jan 9 '18 at 22:03

    @Newton why’ll he have to do that? Chicago to Newark is domestic. – nikhil Jan 10 '18 at 5:16

If your inbound flight is on schedule... and you run... you'll probably be fine. You may not even have to run, if your gates are close together.

If anything goes wrong, it is extremely likely you will miss your connecting flight.

Things you should calculate yourself, Considering the changes in a scenario which may occur surprisingly.

  1. It should be single booking, (Code-sharing by Air-Line is fine)
  2. The gates should be close enough, and you need to take an intra-airport transport.
  3. Your first flight should not be delayed. In such cases, the airlines give you the other options for single bookings. But if you have not done the single booking, it will cost you to book another flight.
  4. In case you reach a bit late, they may ask you to run. So be ready for that.

Hope this helps.
