Hi, I'm looking at a flight from London Heathrow to Billing Montana, via Chicago Ohara, the connection time is only 1 hour and 30 minutes on the same reservation, do you think this is possible with clearing immigration and collecting luggage to clear customs, I have never been through this airport before, but am travelling alone, the date is 17th August.Thanks
It's just enough time if everything goes perfectly. The schedule will probably change before August.
ok, ta, both flights are with United, so I assume they know what they are doing, I've had some long delays at immigration where I normally enter the States at Minneapolis...thanks
MSP is one of the easiest places to enter the US. Chicago O'Hare is much larger, more crowded, and more complex.
I have a flight with Icelandair from TRD - REK - ORD. Then connecting to Dayton with American Airlines or Continental. Would 2 hours and 55 min be enough? Travelling with elderly woman as well.
Continental no longer exists. Do you mean United? That would be barely enough time. You will have to transfer your bags yourself to your second airline.
Do you have to transport your own luggage if you fly with american airlines as well!? How Much time do you need in between?
Yes, you do with American as well. 3 hours is just about what I'd recommend, so 2 hrs 55 is slightly less, but not impossible, just adds a little risk.
It says on the ORD page that: "travelers who are not checked all the way through to their final destination and who have a connecting flight with eirther United airlines or american airlines, can re-Check their luggage with an airline employee immiditely after clearing CBP processing area to avoid carrying their luggage to the domestic terminals"?
Looking into an American Airlines flight that arrives at ORD 2:09pm and next flight departing Aer Lingus for Dublin at 3:50pm. Is that too short of a time to get from terminal 3 to 5?
That should be enough time if the first flight is domestic and on-time.
I am travelling from Dublin(pre clear immigration here) to Chicago then connecting to Orlando flight,all flights are on same ticket with United,I have 1 hour 35 minutes to make the connection,is this enough time
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thanks ZAP. Do you know what terminal I would arrive in from Dublin with United and what terminal I would depart for Orlando,again with United?
Can anyone tell me which terminal the Dublin United flight will arrive at and which terminal the connection to Orlando will leave from
You will arrive at terminal 5 and I think leave from terminal 1. There is a little train that will take you there. It is a very short ride
I am arriving on united T2 F, and have and international flight out T1 C with 1 hour connection what is the quickest transfer route
The fastest way is to walk through the walkway from T2 to T1 concourse B and then through the tunnel to Concourse C. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time. it's all inside security.
Hi I'm flying from London uk to Chicargo O'hare with a connecting flight to Kalamazoo will 2 and a half hours between flights be enough time please?
If both flights are on the same reservation, yes, that is enough time.
Thank you, how will I know if they are on the same reservation please?
Did you buy all your flights at the same time? If so they are.
Thank you this is my first time.
I'm so worried about it all I'm contemplating not even going, Iv never traveled alone
If you do miss your connection and they can't rebook you, you just have to take a taxi or the subway downtown and can take a train to Kalamazoo fairly inexpensively.
Oh great that's really helpful, made me feel a lot better
I'm flying United Airlines from Winnipeg, Canada to ORD and then taking a connecting ANA flight. I only have 1 hour and 5 minutes to connect. Will I have enough time?
ANA flight is bound for Japan.
Yes, that is enough time. 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.
Thank you very much!
I have a United flight from GSP-ORD-YVR with a 1 hr. connection time (flight leaves gsp at 7:00AM). is there enough time for the connection - I'm not sure if the terminals are different.
You will likely arrive in Terminal 2 and depart from Terminal 1, but they are connected inside security by a walkway. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.
United flight, transfer from C gate to E gate. 20 minutes between landing and boarding, 45 minutes between landing and departure. What's my best bet for making that happen?
Hope that the flight from Greenville-Spartanburg is on-time and run. If you miss your connection, United flies hourly flights from ORD to LGA.
Hello, my wife and I are arriving at ORD from MSP at 5:38 pm on Friday March 10th via American Airlines, our flight from ORD to DOH leaves at 6:55 PM March 10th via Qatar airways. Will be able to catch the flight to DOH or should I buy a earlier tickets to ORD?
If both flights are on the same reservation that should be just enough time. You will have to take the ATS Train to Terminal 5 and go through security.
