    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.

    Hi. Leaving through American on a Saturday night at 6:20 p.m. I do have a bag to check. What time should I arrive at the airport? Also, I walk with a cane, so are the gates are near the TSA area? (I cannot walk quickly)


    None of the AA gates in Terminal 3 are too far from the checkpoints. Saturday evenings are generally not very busy. If you arrive at about 4:30 you should be fine.
