    After going through customs, will I have time to meet a friend and go have dinner before departing on domestic flight


    After going through customs at Terminal 5, you can meet your friend in the Arrivals hall, best near information counter, and have dinner with him in the unsecured area of Terminal. Open then click on Restaurants, Bars under heading AIRPORT INFORMATION, top left.

    do they have a ele cart pick up from gate to gate for ppl with hadicapps?


    If you are handicapped and require wheelchair service, you have to request wheelchair service from your airline by calling them, which they are required to provide.

    Concourses A and B are connected by an underground tunnel with moving walkways. It takes less than 5 minutes to get between them.


  • Transfer from American Domestic to LOT Polish International
    Jun 25, 2013
    Greetings - I'm flying in on American 1238 from Seattle on Friday, 6/28 (arriving 1530), and transferring to LOT 002 onward to Warsaw for 1730 departure. Do I have to go between terminals at ORD ? Thanks !


    Yes, you will have to take the ATS train from Terminal 3 to Terminal 5 (one stop). You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    Westjet is not in the airline list to show which terminal it operates from. When checking actual flight details, it lists the departure from gate D50 with no terminal info. On the ORD web page there is no Concourse D. Didn't expect to see this from one of the world's most important and busiest airports.


    Westjet uses Terminal 3, Concourse L at ORD.

    Hello,my family (hubby,myself,1 kid) are flying july 4, 2013 from IAH-HKG, connecting @ ORD, but only 48 min connection time between ORD to HKG. We are flying United. Is this enough time coming from domestic to international? Not sure what gates will be used. Thanks for the input!


    Both gates will be in Terminal 1. If your first flight is on-time you will have enough time.


  • Connecting to terminal 1 to terminal 2
    Jun 21, 2013
    I'm flying into ORD on Saturday morning. I need to get to terminal 2 for my connection. How long will it take us to get there? I'm in a wheelchair and we are working with an hour and half connection time


    With the wheelchair assistance it should take about 20-30 minutes.


  • Term 5 to Term 3

    Arriving from Spain on friday 21st. AA at 14:10 and departing to SFO 16:30. is that gap enough to clear customs and change terms (from 5 to 3)? I've been told a buggage drop facility is within term 5 after customs clearance. Is that true?


    It will be close but you should be OK. If you miss your connection American will have a later flight to SFO you can be rebooked on. Yes, the baggage drop is inside Terminal 5 right after you exit customs.


  • connect time 52 minutes enough ?
    Jun 18, 2013
    Is connecting time of 52 min enough on monday between: arriving flight UA 843 from San Diego - departing flight UA 972 to Brussels . I don't know which terminals we arrive/depart from. I suppose lugage will automatically be transfered. We are 4 trvalling (incl 2 children 13 & 9y)


    forgot to give the timetable: 17h08 : arriving flight UA 843 from San Diego 18h00 :departing flight UA 972 to Brussels


    Both of your flights will be in Terminal 1, either concourse B or C. The two concourses are connected by a short tunnel with moving walkways. It shouldn't take more than 15 minutes to get between your gates, even with the kids.


  • Arrive Gate G7
    Jun 17, 2013
    I arrive at gate G7 at 5:10pm and Depart at 6:05pm at gate K15. Will I have time to make my connection? Do I have to go through security again?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. No you won't have to go through security again.


    You arrive at Terminal 3, at its Concourse G; exit the concourse and walk over to Concourse K (same terminal) which has gates K1-K20. No need for security check.


  • Connection from Terminal 3 to terminal 5
    Jun 13, 2013
    Hi, I will be reaching Chicago ORD by American Airlines (Terminal 3) and will be departing by ETIHAD (terminal5). I have 1 hour 30 min time during this transit. I will be traveling with a 18 year old Kid . So could some one please tell me if I can make it in time.


    Sorry 18 Month Old kid.


    It's possible but you'll have to hurry and hope your first flight is on-time. If your tickets were bought on one reservation American may be able to get you your boarding pass for the Etihad flight at your origination. In Chicago, you will have to go out of Terminal 3 to the ATS train, take it one stop to Terminal 5, and go back through security.


  • Connection time terminal 3
    Jun 13, 2013
    I arrive Terminal 3 Gate H3B at 11:35 and depart Term 3 Gate K18 at 12:20. will i have time for that connection?


    Yes you have enough time, just follow signs to Concourse K.


  • connection time
    Jun 13, 2013
    im flying from mbs to chicago to lhr with a 41 min connection time is that going to give me enough time to get to c16 ?


    If your flights are via United or United Express, your transfer time will be enough. You would arrive in Trminal 1 at either B or C gates.


    Actually, you will arrive in Terminal 2, but you can walk to Terminal 1 Where your london flight will depart without having to go back through security. However, you will have to hurry. It could take about 20 minutes to walk between gates.


    thank you hopefully it wont be delayed


  • 35 minute connection in Terminal 3
    Jun 11, 2013
    I arrive at Gate 19A (American Eagle) in Terminal 3 at 9:10 pm and depart for Heathrow (American Airlines) from Gate K19 Terminal 3 at 9:45. Do I have to go through security? Should I alert the airline?


    No, you do not have to go through security. You just have to walk between your gates. If your first flight is on-time you should be OK if you hurry.

    I fly into ORD on Spirit Airlines and on AirBerlin. Are they both located in Term. 3? Do I have to collect baggage and go thru security again? Please advise.


    Yes, you will have to - Spirit will not transfer your bags to Air Berlin. Plan at least 2 hours for your transfer as Spirit is frequently late.


    Are Spirit Airlines and AirBerlin both located in Term. 3?


    Yes, they are. (Air Berlin arrivals are in Terminal 5, but departures are in Terminal 3).
