  • MCI to Rome via ORD
    Mar 27, 2017
    Will I need to go through Security in Chicago from an American flight originating in Kansas City with final destination of Rome?


    No, on your way to Rome all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    There is no airside connection. You have to take the ATS Train to T5 and go through security.

  • Timing for arriving Frontier from Denver connecting to a KLM to Rome
    Mar 26, 2017
    How much time should we allow? Will we need to collect luggage, and go to Terminal 5 then go through check- in to recheck luggage then security? We have not purchased the domestic ticket yet.


    Considering Frontier is often delayed, I'd want at least 4 hours.


  • 1hr45 to change terminals
    Mar 25, 2017
    Flying Manchester(UK) to ORD then to Toronto. I have 1hr45 between flights. Is this enough time to change terminals? And if both flights are AA will i need to recheck my bag?


    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your bag, go through US Customs, re-check your bag at the re-check desk, then take the ATS Train to Terminal 3 and go through security. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Reclaim Bags?
    Mar 25, 2017
    Howdy Arriving Terminal 5 on Etihad 151 from Abu Dhabi. One clears US customs in AUH. US citizen. Departing a United Express flight out of Terminal 2. The flights are on separate reservations, but the bags are checked all the way through to Omaha. Will bags need to be claimed and rechecked in Chicago or can one just proceed to the train from 5 to 2? Thanks!


    We'll have 2,5 hours between flights. 10am arrival on EY and 12:30 departure on UA.


    If it's two separate reservations it's unlikely you will be able to get your bags checked through to Omaha, but if you do then you won't have to claim them in Chicago. If you don't you will have to take your bags to Terminal 1 to re-check with United.

    I fly from Seoul to ORD, then to Minneapolis on 6/4 (Sunday). I arrive at 7:40 pm in ORD and have 3 hour connection. Would this be enough?


    What airlines are you flying? Are both flights on the same reservation?


    fly in on asiana airline. then UA to MLPS


    If they are on the same reservation then that is enough time.

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. Are you flying Aer Lingus or United from Dublin?


  • Orlando-Tokyo Via Chicago- 50 minutes enough?
    Mar 22, 2017
    I will be travelling from Orlando- ORD with a 50 minute layover before ORD-Tokyo Narita. All codeshare/same reservation with ANA/United.. Didnt realize the tight time- All should be in Terminal 1. Will we make our flight granted that our original flight from Orlando is on time?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • 1 hr 15 min connection on UA
    Mar 20, 2017
    Hi - I am flying from SJC to ORD on United, and then have 1 hour 15 min transit time time to catch another UA flight to LHR. I am traveling with 3 kids, no carry on baggage. Would this be enough time for me to transit ?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Is 3.5 hours enough for international - domestic connection?
    Mar 20, 2017
    Hi, I will be traveling from HKG to ORD on Cathay Pacific, landing at 2pm T5, and I'm getting a seperate ticket to New York. Option 1 is Spirit Air departing at 5:45pm, option 2 is Jetblue departing at 8:50pm. I prefer option 1 but am wondering if there is enough time for connection? Do I need to go through immigration and security, get my baggage, then move to T3 departure hall to check-in my baggage again, and go through immigration and security once more? I'm a non-US citizen with a B1/B2 visa. Normally how long will it take for immigration for non citizen? Thanks.


    Yes, you have to do all of those things. 3.5 hours would be just about enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Thanks for the prompt reply!


  • EWR-PUN 45min is enough???
    Mar 19, 2017
    newark to punta cana by Unted air . only 45 min ...is this enough time? arriving domestic but depart in intl? different terminal??


    Both flights should be in Terminal 1. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.

  • ORD connection from T2 to T1
    Mar 22, 2017
    I will be flying from YYZ to NRT with layover of 50 minutes at ORD. The first flight is with Air Canada and second flight is with United (purchased from same agency). Will I have enough time? What is the best way to go from terminal 2 to terminal 1?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is follow the walkway from T2 to T1.


    Thank you for your response. Will I have to go through customs/security at ORD?


    No, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto ans there is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US and the walkway runs inside security.
