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.
My international flight (China Hainan) arrives at terminal 5 at 1:20PM, and my domestic flight (United) leaves at 3:45, I need to claim bags upon international arrival and re-check in bags, is 2 hours and 25 minutes connection time enough? Thanks a lot!!
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. You will likely have to take your bags with you to Terminal 1 to re-check them with United, unless you purchased all your flights together.
I plan to fly from Nashville to Chicago by AA and arrive at Chicago at 7:50AM, and then fly to China at 10:30am by AA. I bought ticket separately, so probably I need pick up luggage upon my arrival and recheck in my luggage for international travel, is 2 hours and 40 minutes enough for the transfer? Thanks!
If you show your second confirmation to the AA agent in Nashville they should be able to check your bag through to China for you. Then you can just go to your departure gate. if they don't you still have enough time.
Hi everybody. I have a connection flight from MUNICH to PHX through Chicago. I arrive(Lufthansa) at terminal 5 at 18:25 The flight to Phoenix is at 19:40 from terminal 1(United). Do i have any chance to catch the flight? if not , why the operator accepts this connection? I am european citizen
A big thanks in advance!!
That is a very difficult connection, likely not possible. Be prepared to be stuck in Chicago overnight as I doubt there is a later flight to Phoenix on United.
My United flight from Cleveland arrives in ORD at 2:47pm and my flight on Austrian Air leaves for Vienna at 4:10. Is this enough time? United says yes and won't change my ticket even though the Cleveland arrival time was moved later after I purchased. It also looks like there is construction on the ATS.
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. The ATS construction is at the end of the system, not near the terminals, so I don't believe it is affecting the connection times to Terminal 5 from other terminals.
Hi, I'm arriving at ORD terminal 3 on an American Eagle flight at 11:20 am and departing out of terminal 5 on Etihad at 1:05 pm (layover of 1h 45m). I don't have to check-in bags but have 2 small kids. Is this sufficient time to transfer? How long does it typically take and do we have to go through security again?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. You will have to go through security again in Terminal 5.
