    I'm flying Chicago to Memphis at 4:50 pm Saturday, 9-10. What time do I need to get to the airport? I have to check bags.

     

    Getting there at like 2:45-3 should be fine. Saturday afternoons aren't very busy/.

    All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 3, you have plenty of time.

    I will take UA211 from Toronto to ORD and then go to Hong Kong. The connection time is 1hour 59 minutes. Do I need to go through customs and security check again? Is the connection time enough?

    I am flying into Chicago from Cleveland (United-Terminal 1/2) and have 90 minutes to catch my Aer Lingus flight to Dublin (Terminal 5). Should I change my flight so I have a longer layover? Thanks!

     

    Do you have checked bags? Are all tickets on the same reservation? If everything is on the same reservation that should be enough time. You will take the ATS Train to T5 and go through security. Of course, if you can change to a longer connection, I probably would just to be safe.

     

  • T5 to T3 connections

    I am flying in from Spain on Iberian arriving at T5 with just under two hours for a connection on Envoy to YYZ. What do I have to do re baggage and getting to T3 Thank You.

     

    Upon arrival at T5 you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and then re-check your bags at the transfer desk. Then you will go up two levels to the ATS train and take it one stop to T3 and go through security.

     

  • Terminal 1 Exit to smoke?

    United Flight arrives at 4:30 - Connection is at 6 - Both Terminal 1. Advise closest exit to smoke please. Thank you!

     

    There's only one exit to Terminal 1 - the front doors. Note that the Chicago code requires you to go quite a ways away from the doors to smoke as well. You have enough time as long as you head back to security by 5:15.

     

    Thank you...actually, it appears that my connection departs from Concourse B. Is that closer to the exit doors? TY again..;)

     

    I forgot to mention..I am flying First Class - will that make a difference on timing? Security? TY...
