I am flying on United from ORD to CUN. Will I need to go to the international terminal to check in and go through customs?
No, All United flights depart from Terminal 1. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You just have to go to Terminal 1 and go through security.
Does TSA precheck work for US to intl flights or intl to US flights? What do frequent flyers use?? Thanks
Pre-check does not work at airports outside the US. It does work for international flights departing the US if the airline you are flying is a pre-check participant.
