    in a week's time

    1. He might be able to go in a week.
    2. He might be able to go in a week's time.

    Do you say "in a week's time" in place of "in a week"?

    Anglika,
    Thank you very much.

    Are they in equally common use?
    Would the first be more common in American English?

    They are equally common - but you will have to wait for an American to answer your second question.

    Believe me, Daruma - they do. Otherwise, they wouldn't be called native speakers of English.
