  • Connecting to CDG

    I am flying United from SFO to CDG connecting through ORD--only 50 minutes between flights--can I make it?

     

    Yes, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 1.

     

    Thank you!

     

  • T5 to T3 including Immigration

    BA changed my parent's direct flight London-Houston flight at last minute, so now they are required to transfer in OHare with 1hr 25 min to disembark, do immigration and customs and transfer to T3. This is the last flight to Houston. Is this doable? what will happen if they miss? They dont have phone and can barely speak english, and calling BA was more frustrating than anything.

     

    That's barely possible if everything goes perfectly. It is below the minimum International to Domestic connection time in Chicago. If they miss their connection they will be stuck in Chicago overnight.

     

    Thank you.

     

    Just wanted to update - Parents made the connection. both had wheelchair assistance and the staff was of great help with taking them from terminal 5, immigration, customs and to T3 by trian, and even let my parents use their cell phone to call and update me. I am so happy we have such good ground staff. (BA, please take note of this and fix London airport where you did not provide wheelchair even after requesting). Bags were not so lucky, one bag arrived a day later, and all 4 bags had damage (lost handles, lost wheels etc)

     

  • Flying with AA and Terminal 3

    I've been booked to arrive at T3 on AA2319 at 17.58 and depart T3 on AA54 at 19.10. Hand luggage only. UK national. Is that enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both on the H/K concourse.

     

  • Connecting flight DTW-ORD on United - MAD on Iberia

    I will be arriving ORD by United on T1, and then connecting on Iberia to MAD from T3 on a seperate ticket. I have 2 hours connecting time. Is that enough? Thanks.

     

    Do you have checked bags? Without checked bags it should be pretty easy. With checked bags it's barely possible.

     

    No, I will not have checked bags. Thanks.

     

  • YWG Thru ORD to NRT

    Travelling from YWG on United 3750 / Expressjet with a connection in ORD to NRT flight on ANA 11 with a 1h29m layover. Will this be enough time? It seems like I arrive at Terminal 1 in ORD and depart Terminal 2. Thanks.

     

    You have the terminals reversed, you will arrive in Terminal 2 and depart from Terminal 1. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Winnipeg. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

    Please tell me if below connecting time is enough for my transit in ORD?? I believe that both flight are operated AA and believe there is no security check between the flight or immigration at there but I wanted to double check. BA 8440 R 10MAR CMHORD 2027 2108 BA 1518 R 10MAR ORDLHR 2200 #1135 OPERATED BY AMERICAN AIRLINES

     

    Yes, both flights are operated by American and both are in Terminal 3 and there is no security check between gates in Terminal 3 and there is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. You have enough time.

     

    Thank you for your reply ZAP!! I am so relieved to hear that. Appreciated!!

     

  • 50 minutes enough

    Flying United with a 50 minute connection in Chicago- is that enough time- 2 seniors flying? Thanks

     

    Flying from Edmonton AB to Paducah, KY

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Edmonton. All you have to do in Chicago is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both likely in Terminal 2. All United gates in Chicago are connected inside security.

    Arriving in ORD from PIT at 7:12 pm departing ORD for LHR at 9:45 all booked through British air - will there be enough time and do we have to leave security? Our bags will be checked in PIT

     

    That should be enough time. You can either take the ATS Train from T3 to T5 and go through security (the train runs frequently) or take the British Airways shuttle inside security from the H/K concourse of T3 to T5 (the shuttle runs infrequently). Either way I think you have enough time.

     

  • First time fliers have lots of questions

    My boyfriend and I are traveling to New Orleans in July. We are departing from south bend in united and then reaching chicago to transfer planes to another united flight. Will we have to get our bags and recheck them or will they be switched over? Do we have to go through security again? and will we have enough time with a 2 and a half hour layover?

     

    You don't have to do anything with your bags or go through security. You will arrive in Terminal 2 and depart from Terminal 1 or 2. 1 and 2 are connected inside security by a walkway. You have plenty of time.

     

  • United connection to Aer Lingus

    flying BWI to ORD on United arriving at 2:35 on a Tuesday. Then leaving ORD to DUB departing at 3:50 on Aer Lingus. Nervous about timing. Carry on baggage only, ticket booked by United. Enough time between flights??

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You just have to take the ATS Train from Terminal 1 to Terminal 5 and go through security.

    I am on a national flight from getting into ORD at 5:25am and our connecting flight leaves at 6:01am. I'm not sure which terminal yet as my flight isn't until 3/31/16. Is this enough time to go from one flight to the next (I have checked bags but I believe they are just transferring to the connecting plane)?

     

    If you tell me what airlines you are on I can tell you your terminals. That should be enough time.

     

    Oh my flights are United, arriving and departing

     

    Then both of them should be in Terminal 1. However, some United Express flights use Terminal 2. 1 and 2 are connected inside security by a walkway.

     

    So is that a YES? :)

     

    Yes, you should have enough time.

     

  • connection between terminal 2 and 5 at ORD

    I will be travelling from Toronto to Delhi via ORD. Air Canada from Toronto to ORD and Air India from ORD to Delhi. Do I have to collect my bags and re-check them at ORD? how to connect between terminals.

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. If both tickets are on the same reservation your bags will be transferred for you. You just have to take the ATS Train from T2 to T5 and go through security. If you purchased two separate reservations you will have to claim your bags from Air Canada and re-check them in T5 with Air India.

     

  • travel with wheelchairs

    How far apart are the gates for United Express from Green Bay, WI to MCO United 206. we are traveling with 2 persons in wheelchairs

     

    You will likely arrive in Terminal 2. You will depart from Terminal 1. They are connected inside security by a walkway. It will be a 15 - 20 minute walk with wheelchairs.

     

  • 50 min will be enough?

    My flight will be GRU-ORD (by UA) arriving at 7:30AM. Then I`ll have a domestic flight ORD-CMH (by AA) departing at 8:20AM. I have no checked bags. Will it be possible to go through immigration & customs within 50min?

     

    No. This connection would be impossible, especially considering that the security lines in Terminal 3 where you depart will be very long at that time.

     

  • 55 min will be enough?

    My flight will be CMH-ORD by AA. It arrives in ORD by 11:25AM. Then I have an international flight ORD-NRT by UA at 12:30PM departing time. I have no checked bags. Is it possible to complete customs process and make it to the international flight? What are the terminals?

     

    There is no US Customs when departing the US. If you have no checked bags and already have your United boarding pass you can go straight from your AA arrival gate in Terminal 3 to your UA departure gate in Terminal 1. They are connected inside security by walkways.
