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?

That's just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
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.
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.
