  • F lower gates

    Is there an elevator to these lower level gates? Or is transportation needed from aircraft back to terminal. Tight connection within terminal 2

     

    It depends on the gate on the elevators. None of the gates are "shuttle" gates if that's what you mean.

    Are there baggage carts at departure gates for terminal 5?

     

    You can't use the baggage cart very far - you can't take them on a shuttle bus or the ATS. Where are you going?

    Can someone advise me? I have 50 min connection time. Arriving (United) at Terminal 1, Concourse B, Gate B8 Connection flight (United Express) at Terminal 2, Gate F7A. Question: 1) Do I just walk over? Is it easy? Is it close? 2) Do I need to go through security again? Please advise. Thank you!

     

    Yes, you just walk over, no you don't have to go through security. It's like a 10 minute walk.

     

    Thank you very much!

    How long would it take to walk from gate f to gate c at ohare?

     

    At ORD, F gates are in Terminal 2, C gates in T1, but a walkway connects them inside security (follow signs. Should not take more than 10 mins.

    I have a flight from American Airlines into Ohare T3 gate L6A. My connecting flight leaves from F10 via US Airways....can I print boarding passes for US Airways without having to exit and come back through security? It wont allow me to check in online since the first portion of my trip is another airline.

     

    I'm not sure if US Airways has a boarding pass kiosk on the concourse in T2, but the agent at the gate should be able to print it for you. How long do you have between flights?

     

    Just an hour :(

     

    Ouch, that's really tight. If you're not checked in for your US Airways flight then they might cancel your reservation.

    How long is it currently taking to get through security in Terminal 2 (Delta) for a 6:00 a.m. flight?

     

    6am on weekdays can be quite busy; to be on the safe side, allocate an hour for security check.

     

  • American to United HOW do you connect?

    How do you connect from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3 at Ohare? Do you have to go out of security?

     

    No, you do not. You can walk from Terminal 3 to Terminal 2 then Terminal 2 to Terminal 1 all beyond security. Just follow the signs. The walkway in Terminal 3 is near the G concourse and not many people use it because there aren't many T3-T2 connections. Lots of people walk from T2 to T1 because most of United Express is in T2 and mainline United is in T1.

    I'm looking at booking a United flight from Calgary to Buffalo connecting in Chicago--time between flights is 52 minutes--will that be enough time to go through customs and get from terminal 1 to terminal 2?

     

    You will go through US immigration in Calgary. Both of your flights may be in Terminal 1, both may be in Terminal 2. If you can tell me the flight numbers and/or operating carriers I can help you with where the gates will likely be. Regardless, Terminal 1 and 2 are connected beyond security.

     

    Thanks! Right now the itinerary says that the flight from calgary lands in one and leaves to buffalo from 2--I thought i would have to do the US customs in Chicago since I had to do it in Minnesota connecting from Paris on my last international trip.

     

    That's because you were coming FROM Paris. Major Canadian airports have pre-clearance for flights to the U.S. Again, if you share your flight numbers and/or operating carriers I can help you determine what terminal your flights will likely be in.

     

  • 40 minute connection in Terminal 1

    Will I make a 40 minute connection at ORD? My flight from MSP arrives at 7:22 AM and my connection to SJO Costa Rica leaves at 8:15 AM. Not sure which specific gates are involved but if this is all within Terminal 1, will I make the connection? Also, will my luggage make it?

     

    Are both flights on United? If so then yes, both should be in Terminal 1 and should should barely have enough time.

     

    Both flights are United. I am seated in row 2 of my first flight so hopefully I could get out soon and run to my next gate. Will the luggage make it though?

     

    I can't guarantee it, but usually bags can make any reasonable connection that a person can.

    gate l6 to g7 in 55 minutes. doable? do i have to go through security?

     

    ORD doesn't have a gate "I6". However, all gates except the M concourse in terminal 5 are connected beyond security.

    Girlfriend is currently on a plane scheduled to arrive today at 6:45p at C16 of Terminal 1. She has to catch a flight at 7:25p (currently on time) at F7A of Terminal 2. Is this doable?

     

    Yes, it takes about 20 minutes to get between those two gates.

     

    do you have to go through security again?

     

    No, you do not.

    Hi, I am flying out from london to los angeles, but via chicago with a transit time time of exactly 2 hours. LHR-ORD (British Airways) ORD-LAX (American Airlines). Will 2 hours be enough and will I have to claim my luggage or will it be checked in all the way to LAX? I remember there was a drop off location for bags that were on connecting flights when I was connecting to Rochester MN, is it still the same way? Thanks

     

    Yes, it will be the same as last time you connected in ORD. You claim your baggage in immigration and immediately re-check it after leaving customs. 2 hours should be doable, but if you miss your flight American has a lot of flights to LAX that you can be rebooked on.

    I am flying United Airlines Sunday May 5 from Edmonton to Chicago. My flight is scheduled to arrive at Chicago O'Hare at 12:29ppm and depart again, on a different flight at 1:04pm to Indianappolis. Will I have enough time to get to the next gate & board if flights are on time? Will my luggage make it to the next flight?

     

    It's a very tight connection but is doable if your first flight is on-time. Also if you miss your connection there should be other later flights to Indianapolis.

    i will be arriving sunday at6:30pm from munich (UA) terminal5 ,need to clear immigration and custom.,will transfer to Houston (UA 9;25 pm) do not know yet what terminal. will 3hrs be enough time?

     

    You will have plenty of time. Your flight to Houston will depart from Terminal 1. However, I don't see a United flight this sunday ORD-IAH at 9:25 pm. The latest one I see is at 8:44. Go to united.com to check your itinerary.

     

    Also, the Munich-Chicago flight that arrives at 6:20 PM is operated by Lufthansa, not United. But it still arrives at Terminal 5

    I have a Delta flight arriving from Detroit at 3.56PM at Terminal 2 and I have next Virgin Atlantic flight to London at 5PM from Terminal 5. Will I be able to make it in 2 hours. I need to collect my baggage and check in for London flight.

     

    You don't have 2 hours - you only have 1 hour 4 minutes. No, I don't think that's enough time.

     

    sorry it is 6PM. It was a typo. Is it possible in 2 hours?

     

    Yes, 2 hours should be doable if your flight from DTW is on-time

     

    Thanks a lot ZAP. I need to claim my 2 bags and go to terminal 5 and check in. How much time should this take?

     

    Claim will take 15-20 mins, Going upstairs to the ATS and taking it to T5 will take maybe another 15-20. Then you just have to check in with VS and go through security.

     

    I just checked with Delta and they are ready to transfer the baggage themselves. So I will have to just check in at VA. This should be fairly doable. They will transfer the baggage means I will get it at destination(Mumbai) right?

     

    If you're flying Virgin Atlantic to Mumbai then yes, it will be checked through to there, however, you may have to claim it in immigration in London and immediately re-check it with Virgin Atlantic there.

     

    Thanks ZAP. My VA flight is from Chicago to Mumbai via london and is same flight. DO I still need to do that? Delta said they can do it for final destination.

     

    You'll have to ask the Virgin Atlantic check in counter on that one. I suspect you will but don't know for sure.

     

    Ok, Thank You. I should know that at Detroit itself when Delta takes my baggage. They should put a label for Mumbai.

     

    Update on my Trip- I missed my VA flight from Ohare as my Delta flight from Detroit to Chicago got delayed by over 2 hours. I ended up paying $700 for next day flight with VA.
