I have a flight departing from terminal 3, but I would like to use a lounge in terminals 1 or 2. Do I need to go through security again to change terminals, or can I just clear security at terminal 3 and then go to terminals 1 or 2 without going through security again?
You can walk inside security between terminals 1, 2, and 3.
I have a 40 min connection time for Skywest DBA United Express plane change -- do I have enough time to make this work?
Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time. All United and United Express gates in Chicago are connected inside security.
I have a flight PDXORD 8:36 pm ORDHEL 10:00 pm a/c AY
1h 24 would be enough for a transfer in Chicago O'Hare between terminals 3 and 5? Do i need to pick up luggage or it will be transported?
Do i have a time for plus customs?
There is no US customs when leaving the US. If both flights are on the same reservation you just have to take the ATS Train to Terminal 5 and go through security. You have enough time.
Is it possible to catch a 5 am flight in American Airlines, if your other flight will arrive at 4:35 am which is in ANA ?
No, that would be completely impossible. However, there are no ANA flights that arrive in Chicago at 4:35 AM. Where are you flying into Chicago from?
I am flying with AA from BUFF to ORD then ORD to SFO. I have 1 hour and 19 mins to change planes. Anything to worry about.? flying 7th May 2017.
Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I am flying LAX ORD YUL I have 2 1/3hr layover, arrive ORD 5am. Is there interterminal service available inside of security.
I'm flying United and have only carry-on, need to go from T1 to T2
Yes, you can just walk from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 inside security via a walkway. You have plenty of time.
I am flying Aer Lingus from Dublin and having a connecting flight with United. Will I need to clear customs twice? How long does it take to get from Terminal 5 to 1? Thank you.
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. In Chicago you just have to take the ATS Train from Terminal 5 to Terminal 1 and go through security.

Same reservation, Canadian citizen, arrive ORD from NRT (Japan) via UA882 @3:10pm then leave to YYZ (Toronto) via UA843 @5:30pm. Is this enough time? Do I have to go through immigration at ORD and reclaim baggage? Thank you for your help in advance!
Yes, 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, go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.
We are catching a connecting flight at ORD originating from SFO. We arrive at ORD at 8:43pm Terminal 3 on a Saturday and will depart for our connecting flight at 10pm Terminal 5. Will we have enough time to get from Terminal 3 to 5? Would we be walking or is there a tram between Terminals?
There is a train that runs outside security between terminals. You have enough time.
