  • stow hand luggage for 8 hour layover

    Any ideas what we can do with our luggage during an 8 hour layover? We are flying business class with SAS and I have Star Alliance gold card with Lufthansa so was thinking possibly depositing in a loynge but exist that is highly subjective. The personnel may or may not allow it. Any other ideas? A hotel room isn't an option as we arrive at 1300.

     

    Why will you have it during your layover? Did you purchase two separate tickets? If you are arriving on an international flight and connecting to United you will be allowed to re-check it immediately after customs.

    I have a 45 minute layover on 2/19 arriving from MSP and connecting to Aruba. Will I have enough time to make the connecting flight?

     

    Yes, you should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    I am flying from Kansas City to Chicago ORD arriving at 15.30 hrs. and I have connecting flight at 17.10 hrs to London by British Airways. Will the time sufficient to get the connecting flight

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You can take the ATS train, which is faster but requires you to go through security again in T5, or the British Airways shuttle bus, which runs inside security, but infrequently.

     

    Thank you very much.

     

  • C7 to F21 in Terminal 1

    Can I get from C7 in terminal 1 to F21 in terminal 1 by walking or do I have to take the ATS. If I can walk, which would be quicker?

     

    Yes, you can walk, You take an underground walkway from C to B, then walk to your right to F. There is a walkway between T1 and T2. It will take 10-15 minutes. Walking is faster because you don't have to go through security again.

     

    Thank You!

    My daughters will be flying from Salt Lake City to Birmingham via Chicago. Their layover in Chicago is only 40 minutes. Will that be enough time to make their connecting flight?

     

    Yes, but they will have to hurry between gates.

     

  • Getting through security without boarding pass

    Hello, I have a friend coming in town from Texas and she has a 2.5 hour layover. Is there a way for me to get a guest pass to get through security and grab dinner with her at one of the restaurants there? Thank you

     

    No, you cannot. She can exit security and you can have dinner in the Hilton.
