    EWR term C is shut down, two people w a baby stroller breached security says the rumor mill.

    Rebooking my flight already; I have a 90 min connect at DEN that I know I won't make. TA taking 20min to reticket, she's pmCO so I'm a bit surprised, but whatever.

    Where should I go while I wait for the situation to get better? All the RCCs are post-security right? I've got Priority Pass if that helps.

    Thanks.

    Go over to Terminal A. Should be less lines over there and you can use the inter-facility, airside, bus.
    Yes, all UCs are airside at EWR (there are 2 in C and 1 in A)

    Thanks. Security docs work across terminals?

    You shouldn't have an issue accessing the United gates in terminal A with a UA boarding pass.
    I've done it before.

    They also cleared Terminal A, I arrived off UA1419 from PBI at 1357. We were let off the airplane and held at the gate area at around 1435 then they finally reopened the terminal at 1500. So I missed my flight to DCA and decided to do the Trip in Vain and head back home since the 1851to PBI flight had seats open in First Class...

    While waiting at the gate I asked the PAPD about what was going on and it somewhat matches what rizwank said and that they also caught someone at Terminal A trying to bring through a club. The irony of them catching someone was that the person in question was already inside the security area pre-breach so I don't know what happened with that.

    I'm quite jealous, this was an experience that I did not want to have today :(.
