Today someone inquired about transfer times at Newark airport:
Is 40 minutes enough time to transfer at Newark (EWR)?
An attentive user notes that a similar question has already been asked:
Is 50 minutes enough time to transfer between Terminal A and C at Newark (EWR)?
He is not so wrong on this. However, I have some trouble when the recommendation is to close one of these questions as being a duplicate.
I think a better approach would be to delete both and create a more general question about connections in Newark. This question would allow to cover all the possible scenarios (same/different airline or terminal, domestic and international flights, ...). I see two advantages: The questions is relevant to a larger audience and it can be updated more easily, as these standards can change over time.
What do you think about this alternative approach?
