  • Iberia arrival at ORD: where do I collect my dog?
    Nov 30, 2016
    Arriving from Madrid and would appreciate info on where/when I can collect my large dog. Before or after Immigration/Customs? At Excess Baggage desk or where? Many thanks


    It will likely be at an oversize baggage belt/doorway in the international baggage claim, but you can ask the agent on the jetway meeting your flight to be sure.


    Thank you for your help - I'm getting conflicting reports from airline and airport.

    I have a 6:00 am flight on Monday morning - would like to take the bus but earliest arrival to Terminal 2 is 4:50 am. If I don't have any checked luggage and am flying 1st class - will I make the flight?


    Yes, that should be enough time assuming the bus arrives on-time. Terminal 2 security lines are generally short, especially early in the morning.

    Hi, I am flying from madrid to Las Vegas on american airlines, changing in ORD, will I have to collect & recheck my baggage? and if so is 1hr 40 mins enough time?


    Yes, in chicago you will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the ATS Train to Terminal 3, go through security and to your departure gate. Note that the flight from Madrid will be operated by Iberia. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Sep 19, 2016
    I will take flight from SFO to ORD and ORD to MHK on Nov 26. There is only 35 minutes connection time at ORD. Is it enough? Both flights are with American Airline.


    It's enough time if the first flight is on-time. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 3.
