  • Will I make the flight??

    Hi I'm flying from London uk to Chicargo O'hare with a connecting flight to Kalamazoo will 2 and a half hours between flights be enough time please?

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation, yes, that is enough time.

     

    Thank you, how will I know if they are on the same reservation please?

     

    Did you buy all your flights at the same time? If so they are.

     

    Thank you this is my first time. I'm so worried about it all I'm contemplating not even going, Iv never traveled alone

     

    If you do miss your connection and they can't rebook you, you just have to take a taxi or the subway downtown and can take a train to Kalamazoo fairly inexpensively.

    I'm flying United Airlines from Winnipeg, Canada to ORD and then taking a connecting ANA flight. I only have 1 hour and 5 minutes to connect. Will I have enough time?

     

    ANA flight is bound for Japan.

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Winnipeg. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I have a United flight from GSP-ORD-YVR with a 1 hr. connection time (flight leaves gsp at 7:00AM). is there enough time for the connection - I'm not sure if the terminals are different.

     

    You will likely arrive in Terminal 2 and depart from Terminal 1, but they are connected inside security by a walkway. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    United flight, transfer from C gate to E gate. 20 minutes between landing and boarding, 45 minutes between landing and departure. What's my best bet for making that happen?

     

    Hope that the flight from Greenville-Spartanburg is on-time and run. If you miss your connection, United flies hourly flights from ORD to LGA.

    Hello, my wife and I are arriving at ORD from MSP at 5:38 pm on Friday March 10th via American Airlines, our flight from ORD to DOH leaves at 6:55 PM March 10th via Qatar airways. Will be able to catch the flight to DOH or should I buy a earlier tickets to ORD?

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation that should be just enough time. You will have to take the ATS Train to Terminal 5 and go through security.

    I have only 50 minutes layover in ord and will have a check in baggage. Plus I will be traveling with a toddler. Is this doable?

     

    What airline are you flying? You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. If both flights are on the same reservation then all you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    United.

     

    Then, yes, all you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the flight from Toronto is on-time.

     

    Thank you.

    Hello I'll be flying Qatar airways from DOHA to Toronto Via Chicago. I have a 3 hour layover at ORD. Will this time be enough? And what is the procedure to go from Terminal 5 to Terminal 3? Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in T5, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the ATS Train to Terminal 3 and go through security.

    I have a 36 minute connection in Ord from Dtw-Rsw on American Airlines is this enough time

     

    It's possible but depends on the flight from Detroit being on-time. It leaves no time to spare if it's not.

    I'm flying UA from Sao Paulo to Newark on Feb 15th, with a 3h30 layover in Newark and catch another UA flight to Tampa, one reservation. Will I need to claim my bags and re-check it for flight to Tampa?

     

    Yes, you need to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and then go through security. Also, note that you asked this on the Chicago-O'Hare forum but you say you are connecting in Newark, is that correct?

    Hi I'm flying from Milwaukee and have a connecting flight in Chicago to Honolulu. It was much cheaper to book it from Milwaukee but I live in the Chicagoland area. Can I skip my flight from Milwaukee to Chicago and just get on the flight to Honolulu?

     

    Most airlines will cancel the 2nd leg of your trip if you do not take the 1st leg. They do this to avoid booking ploys.

     

    Yes, you will have to drive up to Milwaukee and take the flight to Chicago.

    Montreal to ORD to SF via United with a 1 hour and 33 minute layover. Arrive Terminal 5 and Depart Terminal 1. Is there enough time to make it through customs, ATS travel, and security on a Saturday evening?

     

    You do not arrive in Terminal 5, almost all flights from Montreal arrive in Terminal 2. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

     

    I thought that United international flights arrive at Terminal 5. Is Montreal considered United domestic that I would arrive Terminal 2? Thank you for your response.

     

    Yes, you pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal, therefore you arrive at a domestic gate.

    Hi, We will be travelling from LHR to San Diego, with a 1 hr 35 min change at Chicago in May. Both flight are with United Airlines on a through ticket, arriving 10:45, departing 12:20. Is this change do-able and do we need to switch terminals? Thankyou

     

    That's just enough time, you will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the ATS Train to Terminal 1, and go through security.

     

    I'm flying from Edinburgh to Las Vegas and catch a connection in Chicago. We have 1hour 20 mins to get through US immigration and collect bags etc. Is that sufficient time?

     

    *** (the person coming from Edinburgh), no, that is not enough time the minimum for an International to Domestic connection at ORD is 90 minutes, with 2 hours more realistic.
