Hi. My husband and I are looking at a flight home from Edinburgh to ORD then connecting to regional flight home. United lists a layover time of 1 hour 35 in ORD. I know we need to go through customs, retrieve our bags and recheck them and change terminals. Is this enough time if arriving flight is on time?
Returning to Okinawa on US passport. Arrive terminal 2 leave terminal 5. 1 hr between flights. Is this enough time? Do I have to go through customs ?
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. If both flights are on the same reservation it's barely enough time. If it's two separate reservations it's not enough time. What airlines are you flying?
If I am flying american from london and have a connecting flight on american to new mexico will i need to go through security again after customs?
Yes, you have to go through security after clearing customs at EVERY US Airport.
I AM FLYING TONIGHT FROM SFO TO CINCINNATI WITH A CONNECTION IN CHICAGO OHARE. MY CONNECTING TIME IS ABOUT 30 MINUTES. I HAVE TO CHANGE TERMINALS AND GO THROUGH TSA (T1-CONCOURSE B TO T2 CONCOURSE F). CAN I GET HELP? I AM 72 YEARS OLD AND FEAR I WON'T MAKE THE CONNECTION.
You do not have to go through security again. There is a walkway from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 inside security. You can make it if the first flight is on-time.
What do you think is the minimum layover time you could have at Chicago O'Hare for a domestic-domestic connection (on the same airline)?
30 minutes is possible, but I recommend 60.
How much time is needed to arrive on a domestic flight into ORD, get luggage, get rechecked in for a flight on Aer Lingus to Dublin?
On the return, how much time is needed to arrive from DUB, get luggage, get rechecked in for a domestic flight on AA?
I would want about 2 hours at least both ways, maybe a bit more.
Hi.
We have 2 hours Connection time, We will fly from Heathrow to Chicago O hare,
we will land 3PM and our connection flight to Denver fly out at 5pm. tickets are booked in one reservation on American Airlines.
Do we have to run to make the connection? :)
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am arriving ORD via AA1486 at 13:40 (terminal 1), and leaving ORD via Cathy at 15:35 ( terminal 5). Is 1:55 (almost 2 hrs) enough? Thanks.
Yes, that should be enough time if everything is on-time and your bags are checked through. You arrive in Terminal 3, not Terminal 1.
hi, i'm going to calgary with a connection in chicago, do i need go to canadian immigration in chicago or in calgary? because i only have 55 min of layover in chicago.
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs in Calgary. So if your first flight is domestic then you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I am arriving AA from Columbus and need to check in for a United flight to Germany. How do I get from one place to another and do I collect my luggage from AA first ?
Yes, you need to collect your baggage from AA in T3, re-check it with United in T1, and go through security.
