  • Baggage Check In Info for Air India
    Dec 12, 2013
    I've 2 separate tickets.I'm arriving at Terminal 3 of chicago o'hare through American Eagle. Then I've international flight from T5 to Air India. Can I check in my baggage at T3 for International flight. or Do I need to move all the baggage to T5 to check in the baggage. If Yes, what are the facilities. Does American Airlines transfers baggage directly for airindia. I'm travelling alone. Please advise.


    You need to bring your baggage to T5 on the ATS Train. Air India has nothing in T3. American and Air India do have an interline agreement, but they are under no obligation to check your bags over to them since you purchased two separate tickets, but it never hurts to ask.


    Thanks.. What are the options of moving luggage from T3 to T5. Since I'm travellling after 2 years. I've quite a good amount of luggage.


    The only way to get from T3 to T5 is the ATS Train, where rented baggage carts aren't allowed. If you can't carry all your baggage yourself, I recommend buying a portable baggage cart and packing it in your luggage, then either re-pack it or abandon it in T5 if you don't want to bring it back to India with you.


  • Terminal 5 to Terminal 2 (US citizen) Budapest - Zurich - White Plains
    Dec 11, 2013
    I will be flying through O'Hare and have 2 hours and 10 mins to go from Terminal 5 to my connection in Terminal 2 (with one checked bag). Is there anything I can do in advance to try and make this connection? I'm flying on Swiss to O'Hare T5) then United from O'Hare (T2). Travel agent booked all flights together. Flight arrives to Chicago at 15:55 but on December 20 I assume all times will be busy. Any tips or ideas?


    You should have enough time. You will be able to re-check your bag in T5 after you clear customs. Be sure to check the monitors before you get on the ATS Train as your white plains flight could leave from either T1 or T2.

    I have only about 15 minutes to make my appointment for global entry in international concourse. What is the quickest way and then can I return and get my luggage ?


    You will have to take the ATS train and it will probably take more than 15 minutes. You'll have to hope your flight is early. Leaving your luggage on the carousel for an hour always involves some risk that it will get stolen. Also at that point it may be removed and taken to the baggage office/put in the "row" of luggage near the office. By the time you get back your flight probably won't be on the monitors anymore so you may have trouble finding it.


    Thanks How much time do you think it would take to get to international terminal if my flight was early?


    15-20 minutes if you happen to get a close gate in T1, walk very quickly, and get lucky by not having to wait for the train for very long.


  • from terminal 5 to 3

    Hi I am arriving to ORD in two days. I am coming in from New Orleans to terminal 5 and will leave 2 hours later from terminal 3 to Copenhagen with Sas. So I have two hours, only carry on luggage, can this be done? Thanks in advance.


    You will not arrive from New Orleans in Terminal 5. No New Orleans-Chicago flights arrive in Terminal 5. Perhaps you have it backwards as SAS flights leave from Terminal 5. What airline are you flying from New Orleans to Chicago?

    Hi, travelling from London, Ontario, Canada To Puerto Vallarta, Mexico through ORD Sunday morning Dec. 8th. Have 2 hours to connect from Terminal 5 to Terminal 1, with no US Customs pre-clearance in London. Is that sufficient time? Aso, any tips appreciated. Thanks


    On arrival at ORD 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 ATS train, which runs every few minutes, to your connecting Terminal 1, where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate. However, if you have no checked baggage, you can now use expedited '1-Stop' customs processing express lanes. You have enough transfer time.


    Yes 2 hours should be enough time to do all that.
