We are checking bags and going to Toronto on a 6:20AM flight - What time do we need to get to the ORD?
You should be walking in the door by 4:50 AM
departing at 5:15 from Terminal 3 on Sunday. How much time is needed for security/checkin? What time should I arrive at ORD?
5:15 AM, BTW
Security opens at 3:15, so any time between 3:15 and 3:45 should be fine. Even close to 4 would be OK if you don't have to check bags.
Hi we fly out on June 10th at 710am on spirit what time should we arrive?
5-5:30 AM (closer to 5 if you have bags to check).
Arrival time for international flights ?
at least 2 hours before the flight.
I have a 5 AM flight out of ORD for Phoenix. If checking in bags, would arriving by 3:30 AM be enough time?

Yes, the security checkpoints don't open until 3:15, so at 3:30 the airport will still be pretty empty.
