    I'll be flying EWR-MXP (wideroe deal!) in 2014, and on the return I'm on the UA non-stop departing at 10:25am. I'll be in FCO until that morning, and the earliest AZ flight gets into MXP at 9:40am.

    I'm not checking bags & the flights are in the same terminal (will have to re-clear security, though).
    This is my first time to MXP. Will 45 mins be enough? Is online check-in possible on UA from MXP?

    Many thanks in advance!

    I doubt it will be enough time, and especially risk on separate tickets.

    You will have to head landside and check in before it closes, clear immigration and security before the gate closes.

    It's a domestic flight from FCO to MXP- why would I have to clear immigration? Is there no check-in online for the flight?

    You clear immigration to leave the schengen area (as with most countries - USA is unusual in not having exit immigration).

    Definitely wouldn't do it on separate tickets. Leave Rome the day prior.

    No way would I risk that tight a connection. Maybe take the high speed train back to Milan the night before?
