United Airlines Connections at Newark Liberty to Heathrow UK

We are returning home from holiday on a United Airlines flight from Orlando International connecting at Newark Liberty New York to London Heathrow. What is the the procedure within Newark Airport please? Will our luggage be automatically transferred to our flight to Heathrow or will we be required to collect it and re-check it in?

if you are booked all on the one ticket you just need to get from your arriving gate to your departing gate. You will not see your bags again until Heathrow.. You may also have to change terminals.

We are all booked on the one e-ticket. It states we arrive at Newark Terminal C from Orlando and depart to Heathrow from Newark terminal C. This appears to be straight forward, however, only ever flown direct previously and so a little nervous regarding the procedure and luggae requirements.

Thanks for your help.

You shouldn't have a problem. If you are in doubt, when you check in at Orlando, look at the luggage tags they put on your bags. If the big letters say "LHR" then your bags are checked through. If they aren't then ask the gate agent.

Then, as katy-lied said, you just need to get yourself from your arrival gate to the departure gate - you won't have to deal with any of your luggage.

How long do you have between flights?

Assuming your flight from MCO is with UA then you should arrive/depart from gates in Terminal C - it's really very simple, you just get off one plane and walk to the departure gate.

Here's a map of Terminal C from the UA website.

You should not have any problem. Terminal C can involve a long walk between gates, but it shouldn't take more than 12-15 absolute worst case (most are 3-6). And airside, C is a very pleasant concourse, spacious and with lots of food outlets

1hr 50 mins, will this be enough time?

1hr 50mins between expected arrival from Orlando and departure to Heathrow, both flights with UA.

"1hr 50 mins, will this be enough time?" - Yes, you have enough time to even have a delay of around 1 hour to your flight from MCO before it becomes what I would call a tight connection.
