  • Fly from LHR to SFO via ORD with 1:45h changing time

    Hey Zap, we are flying from LHR to SFO via ORD. We will be arriving 21.3.2015 at 18:30, Terminal 5, our connecting flight is departing at 20:15, Terminal 3, with American Airlines. We bouhgt the tickets together from British Airways Airlines /part of the services are operated by American Airlines/. What do you think 1:45 h is enough time for non US citizen (as an european /ESTA, etc/)? Do we have to pick up our baggage and pre-check them again? Thank you for your help. Eva an Alex

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

     

  • Transfer Terminal 5 to Terminal 3

    I will be arriving at Terminal 5 at 18.35 and leaving from Terminal 3 at 20.06 (1hr 31 minute layover). I won't be pre-cleared and I may have to transfer my bags, though all flights are in the British Airways group. Will I have enough time?

     

    That is barely enough time. You can re-check your bags with American immediately after clearing customs in T5. You don't need to bring your bags with you to T3 on the train. You will go through security in T3.

    I"m flying from BOI to ORD to EDI all United. Do I have to claim my baggage at ORD and recheck it for the EDI flight?

     

    No, you only have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate on your way to EDI. All United gates at ORD are connected inside security.

    Hey, I'm flying from LHR to SFO via ORD. I'm arriving at 15:20, Terminal 5, my connecting flight is departing at 17:00, Terminal 3, with American Airlines. What do you think? 1:40h enough time as an european?

     

    Yes, that should barely be enough time.

     

  • Enough Layout Time?

    My friend is travelling from FRA via UA arriving at terminal 5 while being on ESTA. Next she has to catch a domestic flight operated by EastAsia Airlines to Burlington IA through. The layout time in ORD is 2.5 hours. Can anybody inform me if this time is sufficient enough? Thank you

     

    Layover time btw :)

     

    The name of the airline that flies to Burlingtion, Iowa is called Air Choice One. They operate from Terminal 3. That should be enough time. They likely won't be able to check her bags through to BRL, so she will probably have to claim them in T5 and bring them to T3 to check with Air Choice One. Even if they are able to tag them through to BRL, she will have to claim them to go through customs, but then will be able to re-check them in T5. Either way I think she has enough time.

     

  • Transferring baggage from terminal 3 to terminal 5

    My Mother is travelling via Air India from terminal 5. She is landing in terminal 3 via US Airways. Since the airlines are different she needs to re-checkin her baggages. Since the air india counter is only in terminal 5 she will have to take the baggages from terminal 3 to terminal 5. I have heard that baggage is not allowed in ATS?? If not, then what is the alternative? Does she need to take porter assistance?

     

    Yes, she will have to take her baggage with her to T5. Baggage is allowed on the ATS. The only thing that is not allowed are the rental baggage carts.

     

  • layover time--enough?

    Sorry for a double post--maybe this is the right forum. I am looking into tickets, and for the return trip I have 90 minute layover at ORD. The arrival is from Frankfurt into Terminal 5 (United/Lufthansa codeshare), the departure on United is from terminal 1 or 2. Is 90 minutes enough to get through passport control, customs, then to the other terminal? I will probably have only a carry-on, but not sure., Thanks

     

    90 minutes is enough time, especially if you aren't checking a bag.

     

  • layover time--adequate?

    On May 7 I will be arriving into ORD at 7:15 p.m. on United, and at 8:50 p.m. I have a United flight to Richmond. I do not know the terminals I would land at. Does 1:35 seem like enough time to go through passport control & customs, and then get to the departure terminal? I doubt I'll have bags checked (just carry-on)

     

    Sorry, flying into ORD from Frankfurt (Lufthansa/United codeshare), looks like T5 arrival. Departure might be T1 or T2. An hour-and-a-half--enough to get through passport/customs and then to departing gate?

     

  • Maui to Chicago to Philly

    We are looking at a flight from Maui to Chicago and then Chicago to Philly with an hour between to catch our final flight to Philly. It looks like I would be coming in to concourse B and would need to depart from C to Philadelphia. Is an hour enough time between flights to get from B to C as well as have our bags transferred?

     

    That is plenty of time. There's also a good chance that both flights could be in B or both flights could be in C. United uses all those gates. It takes maybe 5 minutes to walk between all gates in Terminal 1. B and C are connected by an underground walkway.

     

    Thank you! That puts my mind at ease.

     

  • Connection to Istanbul

    I am flying into ORD from DEN on United with a connection on Turkish Air to Istanbul. Will I arrive on one terminal and depart on another? Do I have to go back through security? Currently I have 1hour and 42 minutes layover, providing I arrive at ORD on time.

     

    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal 1 and depart from Terminal 5. The ATS Train connects them outside security, so you will have to go through security again in Terminal 5. Assuming your tickets were purchased together your baggage will be transferred automatically though.

    Hi, my flight from albuquerque with AA arrives at ORD at 16.50, I am then booked on the 18.10 BA flight to LHR. I will have a checked bag, but I guess this is transferred automatically? Do you think I have enough time to make the flight? Many thanks

     

    Yes, it will be automatically transferred. Yes, you should have enough time. You can either take the British Airways shuttle bus inside security or take the ATS Train and go through security in Terminal 5.

     

    Thanks!

    Will an hour and 13 minutes be enough time to get from an arriving flight from Vancouver to my next flight flying to fort Lauderdale? How long is customs for people outside of the U.S?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Hi, we're travelling from the UK to Nashville via Chicago at the end of this month. We arrive at 3.10pm and our next flight is at 5pm. Is that enough time do you think to clear customs, collect bags and change terminals please? Thank you!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

    I'm booking United Airline flights - VIE to ORD, arrive 1:35 PM Terminal 5 International. Depart to MCI at 3:30 PM Terminal 1. Is that generally enough time to deal with customs and checked baggage?

     

    Yes, that is probably enough time.
