I'll be traveling from Indy to Chicago with a 45 min. layover then on to Tampa. Will I have enough time to get off the first plane and board the second?
What airlines are you flying?
My husband's flight from Indianapolis lands at 10.19am, T1. He has to connect to an ANA flight to Tokyo leaving from T2 at 11am. Bags will be through checked and he is flying business. I know he doesn't have to clear security but is this enough time? Is walking the quickest way?
You have the terminals reversed. He will arrive in T1 or T2 and depart from T1. Walking is the quickest way. He has enough time.
Thank you.
I am flying from Toronto to Hong Kong connecting through ORD. Will be flying American for the YYZ-ORD segment and Cathay for the ORD-HKG segment. Will land in ORD in T3 and depart from ORD in T5. I have one piece of checked baggage. Everything is on one reservation. Upon arrival in Chicago, do I have to claim my checked baggage and drag it all the way to terminal 5 to have it re-screened and re-checked at the CX counter? I will have 2 hours. Do I have enough time? Many thanks for your help.
You don't have to do anything with your bags in Chicago. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto. You just take the ATS Train from T3 to T5 and go through security. You should have enough time if your flight from Toronto is on-time.
Fly w/United Ft. 1472 from Bos. at 10:15am, arrival ORD at 12pm. layover 50 min. Then take Ft.851 to Peking. what is the distance between these tow terminal and gate ? Number of them ? layover time enough ?
Both flights are in Terminal 1. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which shouldn't take more than 15 minutes.
Arriving at terminal 3 to terminal 1 to ALL Nippon Airways depart to Tokyo .. 2 separate tickets with 1 checked in luggage.. Could I make it on time with check in and security? Thanks
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Arriving domestically to terminal 2, departing internationally from terminal 5, ~3 hours later. 2 separate tickets/itinaries. Will that be enough time to collect bags from T2 and recheck to T5?

Also, returning, will 2 hours be enough to go through customs and recheck bags? Will I be able to check them at the counter beyond customs if not ticketed all the way through?
Yes, that should be enough time on the way there but on the way back no, that is not enough time. You will have to take your bags to the United check-in counter in T1 to re-check your bags.
I'm landing in terminal 5 with aer lingus from Dublin (will have done preclearence for immigration in dublin) and have to get to terminal 1 for a flight with united.Layover is 1 hour 15 minutes. Is that long enough? Thanks.
It's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Arriving at ORD at 2:20 on AA into Terminal 3, connecting to ANA flight to Tokyo at 4:15 in Terminal 1. No bags. About 2 hours. Is there a walkway between terminals? Or will I have to take the ATS and go through security again? Will 2 hours be sufficient for this transfer? Thanks in advance.
Yes, there is a walkway inside security from T3 to T2 and then T2 to T1. YOu have enough time if your first flight is on-time.
We are leaving from Denver to chicago to south korea as the final destination and i did read that there is only customs when entering the US but not for leaving is this correct or is there another security or customs in chicago? Help!
Yes, that is correct regarding customs. However, you will have to go through security again in Chicago as the two airlines that fly nonstop from Chicago to Korea depart from Terminal 5 and that terminal is not connected to the domestic terminals inside security.
I booked a codeshare flight United/Aer Lingus from Columbus to ORD to Dublin. 1) When I get to ORD, do I need to get my luggage, re-check it, & go thru Security or will my baggage go all the way thru to Dublin? 2) I have 1 hr, 40 min layover time at ORD. Will I have enough time?
Your bags will go straight through. You just have to take the ATS Train to Terminal 5 and go through security.
