Hi I have a flight from Milwaukee to O'Hare and then to Dublin, my flight to Chicago is with United airlines, I have a 4 hour layover in O'Hare before my flight to Dublin with Aer Lingus; do I need to re-check my bags? Do you know what terminals I'd be arriving in and out of? Thank you
You do not have to claim and re-check your bags if everything is on the same reservation. You will arrive in Terminal 1 or 2 (likely 2) and depart from Terminal 5. You will have to take the ATS Train to Terminal 5 and go through security. You have enough time. Also, the code for Milwaukee is MKE and the code for Dublin is DUB.
Okay thank you so much, where will the ATS train be located to travel to terminal 5? So baggage claim is not necessary? Thank you for your help!
The ATS Train is located outside security across the roadway (there is a pedestrian bridge to it). Yes, baggage claim is not necessary if everything is on the same reservation.
I'm flying from St Louis to Chicago and connecting to London. Both the inbound and outbound flights are on American Airlines and in terminal 3. I have 1 hour and 15 minutes between flights. Is this enough time to connect? I've done this journey before and for some reason I was unable to check in to the second flight until I got to Chicago, although that time I was flying via AA and then BA.
That is plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in T3.
Hello there, I will be flying from YYZ to ORD on AA, will arrive in T3. After that, I will be flying from ORD to NRT on JL, departs in T3 as well. So when I arrive in T3, do I need to pass thru TSA security again? Or I can just walk to next gate departing to NRT"? Thank you!
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I have a 40min layover in ORD terminal 3 on monday, arriving from Toronto YYZ at 12:39 and leaving ORD at 13:19....boarding time should be 13:00 or before I guess...is this too risky? it's all in terminal 3.
It's possible but it leaves no time to spare if the flight from Toronto is delayed.
Hello. My Lufthansa flight arrives in Chicago from Munich at 6:55 pm on Jan 11 at Terminal 5. I have 2 hours 15 minutes to get through passport control, get my checked bag, go through customs then go to Terminal 2 for a United Airlines flight to Detroit at 9:10 pm. Do I have enough time? Are the passport control and customs very busy at that time?
I want to add I have one Booking reference for all flights.
Yes, that is enough time. Immigration will not be very busy in the early evening on a Wednesday in January.
