exmwr said:BTW . EWR info . I was recently informed that EWR has a cell phone lot . It's open from 7:00AM till 1:00 AM . You can stay there for 60min. It is located on Basilone Road. There are 150 spaces but you must remain with your car.
sac said:We are checking bags and we have premier access. I may be wrong, but I thought that for international flights you couldn't do advance online check-in. Has that changed? (We haven't flown internationally in three years.) Usually, the way I find out if I got TSA-pre is on my boarding pass after I do the check-in. We get it about 50% of the time. Is there any other way to find out in advance whether or not you got it? (We do not have the paid subscription ... just the random precheck status that frequent fliers can get.)
I think we'll go with arriving 2 hours ahead. (We also have a couple of free passes to the United Club, so we can always hang out there if we have time to kill.)
Good news re cell phone lot ... I've always wondered why we seemed to have the only airport in the nation without one. One of my relatives' home airport cell phone lot even has arrival/departure info screens and the like. But I would settle for a safe/legal place to put my car while waiting to do a pickup.
I never considered that. Debating between 2 hours or more.

So I can only do it with the app, not the computer?
Jackson_Fusion said:The United app lets you take a pic of your passport for check in. Make sure the app is updated. It's a fairly new feature.
Right, but Jackson's post said something about taking a picture of the passport for check-in purposes. I know I can deposit a check in my bank account with my phone, but not my computer (despite owning a scanner), so I'm wondering if it is similar. This is the first time I've flown internationally since these new features were available.

lanky said:Depends on:
- If you are checking bags
- If you are TSA PreCheck Qualified
If you are not checking bags and are PreCheck, one hour is sufficient. Add 15 minutes if checking bag and 20 minutes if not PreCheck
hauscat said:TSA precheck only applies to domestic flights. You may get it automatically through some participating airlines, which is why you see it only 50% of the time, or you can apply for it in order to have it personally. For future reference, you are required to go to an application center if you want your own assigned number. Go to NYC and not Newark, which I just did and it is not a safe area at all. The international version of the TSA precheck requires an interview at the airport as part of the application process. Safe travels!
stateguy said:^ to clarify a bit: Your Global Entry number which you can put on your airline web page when you purchase a ticket usually guarantees you you a TSA Pre Check at check in. In the US.
Outside the U.S. there's no Pre Check at security.

Also, if the Homeland Security shutdown happens, I understand that TSA workers still have to report but won't get paid, so I'm thinking that could cause slowdowns.
So ... if you were flying to Central America on Saturday morning, what time would you plan to get to EWR?
