  • transfer of luggage to Ethihad
    Oct 3, 2012

    I need to travel by Ethihad from Chicago. I am taking a seperate flight ticket from Detroit to Chicago. Would United/Delta transfer my luggage to Ethihad? can this be done in DTW or does this have to be done i Chicago, since I bought 2 seprate tkts - 1 for domestic and 1 for international?

     

    With two separate tickets you will need to contact your first airline (which one? -United is at T1 & T2 or Delta at T2) if it would transfer your bags at ORD to your Etihad flight at T5 - if not you need to take bags and re-check them in at the terminal of Etihad (T5).

     

    Nope, they won't transfer the luggages. Etihad's codeshare partner is American Airlines, so if it is a different domestic carrier then you need to collect the baggages from the respective terminal and check in at Terminal 5 (for International travel). In your case, you need it to carry it from Terminal 1 (United) to Terminal 5 (International Terminal) and check in the baggages.

    My flight arrives from London at 7:25 pm at terminal 3, and my connecting flights departs at 9:00 pm from terminal 1, I think(I'm flying AA). Is that enough time to clear immigration, customs and a security check?

     

    On arrival at ORD you will arrive at the International Terminal 5 at M gates - not T3! After exiting the Federal Inspection and luggage re-check areas, proceed up one level to the Airport Transit System. The freeATS shuttle train runs every few minutes between Terminal 5's ATS level nd domestic terminal 3, your AA connection. T3 has gates areas G through L. You have enough of time.

    Is one hour long enough to make a connecting flight on AA from LIT to CDG? Do the bags check all the way through or do I have to pick them up and take them to international scty?

     

    You most likely arrive at ORD Airport at the domestic Terminal 3, and depart from its international Terminal 5. The ATS shuttle train runs every few minutes between Terminal 5's ATS level the and domestic terminals 1, 2 & 3. At Terminal 5, Concourse M with M gates wraps around the concessions Court to the left (gates M12-M21) and to the right (gates M7-M1), and extends northward in the center to gates M8-M11 (prepare yourself for long walks from check-in to gates). AA will transfer bags to connecting flight. You have enough time.

     

    Actually, you will both arrive and depart from Terminal 3 on your outbound journey to CDG. On the return, you will have to go from Terminal 5 to Terminal 3. All AA flights (domestic and international) depart from Terminal 3.

    I'm returning to ORD from Paris and have a domestic connection on the same airline (AA). Will I need to clear security again to make the domestic flight? This impacts what I may buy duty-free before leaving Paris.

     

    On arrival at ORD (Terminal 5)you you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag; then proceed up one level to the Airport Transit System (ATS) station and take the train to your connecting Terminal 3, which has Concourse G (gates G1A-G21 and on the lower level gates G13-G15); Concourse H (gates H1-H18; Concourse K (gates K1-K17); and Concourse L (gates L1-L10). You will need to fill out a customs declaration form. Concourse H has gates H1-H18, with a Rebooking Center near gate H7. Between Concourses H & K is the Admirals Club. Concourse K with gates K1-K17 has a Rebooking Center at gate K10A and the Flagship Lounge near K16. Concourse L has gates L1-L10 but no airline lounges. (for Virgin America, Spirit, JetBlue, Air Choice One and American airlines) . 2.Passengers transferring from O'Hare's International Terminal to any of the Domestic Terminals: After exiting the Federal Inspection and luggage re-check areas, proceed up one level to the Airport Transit System where you can easily connect to either terminals 1, 2 or 3 for domestic flights. A free shuttle train running every few minutes can take you there. 3. The ATS shuttle train runs every few minutes between Terminal 5's ATS level the and domestic terminals 1, 2 & 3.

    Are there any restaurants in the pre-security areas in Terminal 1,2 or 3 and if you had to walk between terminals, can you?

     

    I'm not aware of any pre-security restaurants. You can walk between terminals 1 to 3 along the curbside roadway on either the arrivals or departure level as well as past security through terminal connectors.

    HELLO, MY SON IS FLYING FROM MEXICO AND ARRIVING TO TERMINAL 5, THEN HE HAS TO TAKE A FLIGHT TO FLINT, MI IN TERMINAL 3 WITH AA, WHATN DOES HE HAS TO DO WITH HIS BAGAGGE, THEN HOW DOES HE HAS TO GO TO TERMINAL 3?

     

    Once he clears passport control and takes his bag thru customs/immigration, AA has a recheck counter where he will leave his bag before getting on the airport transit system to terminal 3.

     

  • T3/GateL6A to T3/K12

    arriving #5094 at 5:30pm at T3/ L6A; connecting flight to London departs at 6:05pm at T3/K12. Checked baggage, 2 travelers, one is a senior. Is there enough time to get from one gate to the other? Travel agency made the res despite my warning to give us more time to transfer planes!

     

    1. You check your bags at your original departure airport. Make sure that that your original airline will transfer bags at ORD to your connecting airline, if a different one - not all airlines do, in which case you would have to claim your bag, and re-check it in with your next airline (30 mins would then hardly make it). 2. On arrival at Concourse L of Terminal 3, you merely walk towards the concourse exist and enter the adjacent Concourse K to your K12 gate, a matter of no more than 10 mins.

    how long to get from T3 G1A to international M07

     

    The ATS shuttle train at ORD runs every few minutes between Terminal 5's domestic terminals 1, 2, 3. Signs will guide you. (Concourse M wraps around the concessions Court to the left (gates M12-M21) and to the right (gates M7-M1), and extends northward in the center to gates M8-M11 (prepare yourself for long walks from check-in to gates).

    How do I get from teminal 3 domestic to terminal 1 international?

     

    Terminal 3 is the international terminal (with M gates) Terminal 1 is a domestic terminal with B & C gates. 1. International Arrivals: Unless you have gone through US customs clearance by participating airports in Canada or the Caribbean, you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag (the tag should indicate layover and final destination Airport Codes), then proceed up one level to the Airport Transit System (ATS) station and take the train to your connecting terminal. 2.Passengers transferring from O'Hare's International Terminal to any of the Domestic Terminals: After exiting the Federal Inspection and luggage re-check areas, proceed up one level to the Airport Transit System where you can easily connect to either terminals 1, 2 or 3 for domestic flights. A free shuttle train running every few minutes can take you there. 3. The ATS shuttle train runs every few minutes between Terminal 5's ATS level the and domestic terminals 1, 2 & 3.

    How long will it take to get from G concourse in Terminal 3 to Terminal 5? Do we have to go through security again? We are traveling with a group of 15, mostly senior citizens.

     

    At ORD, on Arrival at Concourse G, walk towards the Rotunda and look for the ATS shuttle train sign, which runs every few minutes to Terminal 5. Note that Concourse M of T5 wraps around the concessions Court - to the left (gates M12-M21) and to the right (gates M7-M1), and extends northward in the center to gates M8-M11 (prepare yourself for long walks from check-in to gates).

    I have 45 minutes between flights to go from F5 to C8, is that adequate time?

     

    At ORD getting from T2 to T1: Note that all gate areas of all terminals are not connected, but the secured area, which is the upper level (Departures) has, right after you walk from gate F8 past gate F1, at right end a connector to Terminal 1, where you will arrive again in the secured area, and where you should proceed to nearby gate B6, walk past gate B8 (at right), take walkway to C gates.

     

  • T1 C concourse to T3 L concourse

    I have approximately 40-45 minutes from arriving on United in Terminal 1 to Departing on American in Terminal 3. Carry-on luggage only. I can move OK walking/sprinting. The big question...do I have to go through security at Terminal 3. Can I reasonably expect to make my connection?

     

    At ORD on arrival at T1 follow the ATS train signs. The train runs every few mins, but may arrive/depart from the unsecured areas of the terminals, meaning that you would have to go through security check at T3. T3's gates: Concourse G has gates G1A-G21, and on the lower level gates G13-G15. Concourse H has gates H1-H18, Concourse K has gates K1-K17; Concourse L has gates L1-L10 (for Virgin America, Spirit, JetBlue, Air Choice One and American airlines) NO TIME TO WASTE!

     

    fraug12. Thanks, I continued to research posts with similar situations such as mine. Using the ATS apparently means going through the TSA lines. I checked the layout of the terminals after seeing some posts indicating that I can travel from T-1 to T-3 while staying in the secured area. No TSA stuff. Anybody done this. If I run like the wind, can I get from T-1 to T-3, passing through T-2 in twenty minutes to a half hour? Thanks again fraug12
