  • Transit time

    I only have 50minute transit on flight from Toronto to Portland via Chicago. Both United flights. Is this enough?

     

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

    On sept. 15th, I'll have only 1h20 to connect from a UA (Skywest) flight from Montreal-YUL to ORD, then from ORD to Beijing. Is it enough? Any idea of which terminal I'll be using?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You will preclear US Immigation and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will arrive in Terminal 1 or 2 and depart from Terminal 1. If you arrive in Terminal 2 it is connected inside security by a walkway to Terminal 1.

     

  • Collect Baggage at Chicago?

    Hi I am travelling from India to Albuquerque on 1st Aug, via Chicago in American Airlines. I have a single ticket for the entire journey, with a 2 hr layover at Chicago. 1. Do I need to collect my bags and re check them in Chicago 2. Is 2 hours enough for changing terminals and rechecking baggage (if needed)

     

    American Airlines does not fly to India. What airline are you flying for your first flight?

    Hello, I will be flying to ORD from the Savannah, GA airport and my connection time to Vienna is 1h35min. How long does it take to get to terminal 5 if I arrive in terminal 2 in ORD? I am worried that it will cut real close. I will not check in any luggage. Thank you.

     

    You will have to take the ATS Train to T5 and go though security. You should have just enough time if the flight from Savannah is on-time.

    Hi, I will be flying in from Phoenix to Chicago, then from Chicago to London and London to India. This is a single ticket purchase. Airline- British Airways. Although the first two flights have British Airways flight number but is actually operated by American Airlines. My question is, 1- Once I check my bags in Phoenix, do I need to pick it up in Chicago and go through security? 2- I don't need to change terminal because it's American to American in Chicago, so once I get out of the gate, can I proceed to the next gate within the terminal without going through security? 3- Will the boarding passes for the consecutive journey from Chicago to London be issued at Phoenix it self or do I need to collect it at Chicago? Thank you.

     

    No, you don't have to do anything with your bags in Chicago. You won't see them again until you get to India. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Chicago, no security necessary. You should be issued all three boarding passes in Phoenix.

     

  • 30 min connection United

    Hi, I have a 30 min connection time from Portland to Richmond flying United. Will these both be in Term 1 or will it be Term 1 to Term 2? Is 30 enough time, assuming the flight is on time? Thanks

     

    Your flight to Richmond could depart from Terminal 1 or 2. They are connected inside security by a walkway. This is possible but it obviously leaves no time to spare if the flight from Portland is delayed.

     

  • DEN-ORD-LHR on UAL, Terminal?

    Hi Everyone, I just booked DEN-ORD-LHR on UAL in December with a 1hr 26 min connection. Does anyone know if I'll have to change terminals? Was hoping for enough time to check out the new Polaris lounge which should be open by then. Thanks!

     

    You do not have to change terminals. Both flights will be in Terminal 1.

     

    Thanks!!!

     

  • Flight connection and US Immigration/Custom

    Dear all, I'll fly FCO-ORD-MEX via AZ/DL flight on next sunday I got 2 hours from when I arrive to ORD and board to MEX (DL Flight) . Are 2 hours sufficient ? Do I need to pass US Immigration or can I look for my flight for MEX directly on the same Terminal 5 ? kindest regards TIA. Fabio

     

    Delta does not fly from ORD to MEX. That flight will be operated by Aeromexico and depart from T5. In Chicago 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 go through security and to your departure gate. You should have just about enough time.

    Hi, I'm flying from Newark to Ottawa through ORD, booked by one reservation with UA. The flight from Newark arrives in ORD at around 10PM, T1. The next flight to Ottawa is 7AM in the morning, T2. I'm wondering if I can stay within the secured area during the layout? Or do I need to go out and re-check my bags. If I can stay inside the secured area, are T1,T2,T3 connected inside? so that I can access the 24h concessions in T3? Thanks!

     

    No, they clear the secure areas every night after the last departure (around midnight) and if there are any later arrivals they are eschewed directly to the baggage claim. The checkpoints reopen at 3:15-3:45.

     

    Thanks for replying. So does it mean I need to claim my baggage and recheck-in in the morning? even my flights were booked all-in-one?

     

    You'll have to ask the agent in Newark. If the tag comes out with YOW on it then you won't have to claim them in Chicago. The system is kinda weird with what overnight connections it allows and which ones it doesn't.

     

  • terminal 1 to terminal 5 will I need to go through security again

    I will be arrive on United from GRR in terminal 1 and leaving for Doha on Qatar Airlines in Terminal 5. Will I need to go through the TSA again? Second I brought the flights on the airline websites, will I need to recheck the bag or can I have it checked to my final stop in GRR? I only have Hour and 45 minute window. Thanks

     

    Yes, if you booked two separate reservations you will have to claim your bags in Terminal 1, take the ATS Train with your bags to Terminal 5, re-check them with Qatar Airways, and go through security. This is a very difficult connection. The check in counter closes 1 hour before the flight.

     

    thanks, I bite the bullet and got an earlier flight into Chicago.

    Hi, we are planning our booking for our vacation to Cancun Mexico. Going to Canccun we have direct flighgt. However, coming back the connecting flight stopd in Chicago (ORD). Do we need transit visa ? Our staus is Permanent Resident of Canada. Thanks for he help.

     

    What is your citizenship?

     

    Filipino but now permanent resident of canada. Living in canada now.

     

    Then you will need a US Transit Visa. Unfortunately Canadian permanent residency does not get you anything in the US.

     

  • connecting through ORD to LAS from MAN

    Hi, AA have given me a connection time of roughly 1hr45min ,arriving at Terminal 5 and departing from Terminal 3 I believe. Is this enough time to make connection and will my bags be checked straight through or will I have to collect them and re check them as it's the first connection I've had to make on that side of Atlantic, I normally connect in Europe when travelling to USA and bags go straight through to final destination but not sure how it works in regards to customs. Many thanks

     

    You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the ATS Train to Terminal 3, go through security and to your departure gate. This is a difficult connection unless your flight from Manchester arrives early.

     

    Thanks for reply, AA55 which is my inbound flight from UK is a very poor performing flight and is very regularly delayed for whatever reason(they've recently introduced the 788 on this route so not sure whether that's got anything to do with it and they're having some kind of teething issues). I will contact AA and see if they have any later flights to LAS as its looking around about a 10% chance i'll make it with how AA55 is performing .

    I will be coming to O' Hare airport from Munich, germany to going to Iowa,, i have 5 bags with me and two kids, i will arrive to terminal 5 and will leave from terminal 1, am i gonna calim my luggage or i will get it from iowa,, i have a US passport?? And is there anyone there can help me with the luggage??

     

    No, there are no porters in the International baggage claim however, there are free carts. I think that between you and your kids, you can get all the bags onto one of the carts.

    Hi, I am flying from Incheon into terminal 2 arriving at ORD at 9:35 then trying to catch a 12:05 Delta flight to Detroit from Terminal 5. Will that be enough time or should I find a later flight?

     

    You have the terminals reversed. You will arrive in Terminal 5 and depart from Terminal 2 (if your flight to Detroit is on Delta). You should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
