I am flying united to ohare, picking up luggage at the carousel, then I need to check in with same luggage for SAS international flight. I have a 3 HR layover. How do I do this? Will I have time?
After you get the bags you go up 2 levels and take the ATS Train to Terminal 5, check them with SAS and go through security. You have enough time.
How much time should I allow for connecting to a domestic flight arriving at :6:15 pm (have Global/TSA Entry) -- will I have enough time to connect to 8:15 flight?
Is it two separate reservations or one reservation? Where are you connecting to? Will you have checked bags?
We are traveling from Montego Bay and have a connecting flight in Chicago. We have 2 hr 15 min to get from Terminal 5 to Terminal 2. Is this enough time? Thanks
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.
We are flying united from FSD to MBJ with a 1 hour layover in ORD. We need to go from terminal 2 to 1 for this connection. Is this enough time? Should we walk? Thanks.
Yes, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if your flight from Sioux Falls is on-time.
On July 2, 2017 I have a 40 minute connection - arriving on United Airlines from San Francisco, CA. I am flying form Chicago O'Hare to Norfolk, VA via United. I am in First Class - will that be enough time to get to my flight?
Yes, that is enough time if the flight from San Francisco is on-time. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hello i am flying from Boston to ORD, then connecting to SJD on the same airline/ticket.
The BOS-ORD arrives at 18:31 (United) and ORD-SJD leaves at 19:20, will this be enough time?

Thank you in advance
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 1.
Hello, I need help with figuring out if I have enough connecting time at Chicago O'Hare airport. My flight arrives at 7.15 pm on July 12 (Wed) from Frankfurt (Lufthansa flight) at Terminal 5.

Is there any way to make it for AA flight leaving for DFW at 8.18 pm? These will be 2 separate bookings. Thank you!
No, that would be completely impossible.
Hello,
I need help with figuring out if I have enough connecting time at Chicago O'Hare airport.

My flight arrives at 7.15 pm on July 12 (Wed) from Munich (Lufthansa flight).

Is there any way to make it for AA flight leaving for DFW at 8.18 pm? Next connecting flight is not until 10.40 pm ...

Haven't flown through this airport and have no idea if I will be arriving and leaving from the same terminal.

Thank you!
No, that would be completely impossible. You will arrive in Terminal 5 and depart from Terminal 3. You'll have to take the 10:40 flight.
Thank you for the prompt reply!

I was afraid that would be the answer ... 10.40 pm is the winner then.
I fly from Vegas and arrive at Chicago at 7:39 pm on United and fly out at 9:05 pm on SK to sweden, Is that enough time? Anything I need to think of? Haven't travelled international before.
You just need to take the ATS Train from T1 where you arrive to T5 where you depart and go through security. You should have enough time if the flight from Las Vegas is on-time.
Will 2.5 hours be enough time to arrive from DC T3 and make a connection on Royal Jordinian T5? Can I check my luggage through in DC and not worry about it in Chicago?
If both tickets are on the same reservation, yes, you can. If it's two separate reservations you will have to claim your bags in T3 and re-check them in T5.
