  • Friend leaving from a different terminal
    May 18, 2013

    Hi! I'm leaving from O'Hare and so is a close friend. We're trying to figure out how to stay together as long as possible before our flights. Mine leaves a few hours after hers, and I'm leaving from Terminal 3 while she's leaving from Terminal 1. Are either or both of these scenarios possible: 1) Can I check in at Terminal 3, she check in at Terminal 1, and can I walk to meet her at her gate after clearing security at Terminal 3? The terminals do connect after clearing security, right? OR 2) Can I check in at Terminal 3, drop my bags, then before going through security go with her to Terminal 1, where she can check in...? My real question is, can I go WITH her through security at her terminal (T-1) even though I've dropped my bags at Terminal 3? Thanks so much!

     

    Either scenario works. However I think that 1 would be the easiest.

     

    Thanks so much! So you're positive that I can wait with someone at her gate who's leaving on a different airline in any of the three terminals (T-1, T-2, T-3)? United Airlines told me that each airline has its own gates cordoned off and that someone travelling on one airline can't wait at the gate with someone traveling on another. :P Is this not true (I'm hoping it isn't)?

     

    That's not true. Nobody checks what airline you're flying on when you're just waiting at the gate

     

    Thanks again! So all terminals connect airside, and there are no checkpoints that would stop me from walkmg from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1 airside (past security) because my ticket is on American? Thinking of checking in at Terminal 3 and going to meet her at her gate at Terminal 1 and just want to be sure I can do this. Please let me know. Thanks again!

     

  • Time to transit from T5 on a Wednesday a

    ba297 is always late at least 30 - 40 minutes giving us only am hour and 20 or 20 minutes to make our flight connection in T3' is this doable On a Wednesdat around 6:30 pm?

     

    I see most days BA297 doesn't get in until 6:30 or later, so I think it's very unlikely you'll be able to make a 6:30 PM AA connection. If there's a later flight to your destination you'll be rebooked on that.

     

    We have the exact same scenario. We have an 8:05 connection after arriving on BA297. We are US citizens. So, can we make it to terminal 3 with a 6:30 arrival giving us a hour and 35 minutes to make an AA flight on a Wednesday?

    Flight 6126 to Ohara, arrival 1818, terminal 1 connecting to flight 1633 at 1824,, terminal 5. Will I make my connection?

     

    What airline(s)? No United flights depart from Terminal 5, however, I wouldn't plan on making any connection in 6 minutes. Do you have your times correct?

    At O'Hare Airport, on arrival at Terminal 1, follow signs to the free ATS shuttle train running every few minutes in the unsecured areas of the terminals - meaning that on arrival at Terminal 5 you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate (M gate). You may need about 25 mins from gate to gate.

    Is it possible to get from an American flight arriving at 6:50 PM to a United flight leaving at 8PM at ORD?

     

    If your bags are checked through or if you don't have checked bags, yes, if you move quickly. If you have to claim and re-check, no.

    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.
