  • Transfer at Chicago to Cancun

    I am flying United Air from Mpls to Chicago with 52 minute layover. Will that be enough time to make a Cancun connection?

     

    If arriving and departing via United Airlines, note that United uses Terminals 1, 2 & 5. T1 has B & C gates, T2 has E & F gates and T5 has M gates. On arrival look up at the screens to find your departing flight & gate; then follow signs to the ATS shuttle train running every few mins between the terminals. You have enough time.

     

    Your arrival and departure gates will both be in T1. If your MSP-ORD flight is on-time you will be fine.

  • United dom to int. layover at T1
    Nov 7, 2012

    Flying from SFO to ORD and connecting to a flight for Brussels with a 56 minute layover..obviously concerned about limited timing to catch the international leg. Arrival and departure terminals listed as T1 on ticket. Although same terminal, do I have to go through security? what if they are same terminal but end up being different concourses? Not checking any bags

     

    Terminal 1 of ORD serves (a) all departures of Nippon Airways ANA & Lufthansa; all domestic flights & international departures of United, and (b) all check-in and baggage claim for United Express. T1 has Concourses B (gates B1-22) & C (gates C1-31) - each of the concourses connects at its center to the other. You have enough time!

     

    If your flight is on-time, then it's an easy connection. You do not have to go through security again. There are only two concourses in Terminal 1 and no two gates in T1 are more than a 5-10 minute walk from each other.

     

    Thanks for the info ZAP and Monov12. Most helpful!

     

  • Re-checking our bags

    We flying from toronto to ord then connctingflying flight to london heathrow om untied. We will be clearing usa customs in toronto so do we pick up our luggage and re-check or does our luggage go directly to our london flight. We have 2.5 hours bewteen flights.

     

    Your luggage will be checked straight through to London when you go through US customs in Toronto. No need to reclaim and re-check in Chicago. 2.5 hrs should be plenty of time to make your connection.

    arriving terminal 3- gate g2b, depart terminal 3- gate k19- do I need to go up one level to depart and if so- how?

     

    If you are an International Arrival at ORD and have not gone through US security check at your original participating Airport (like Canada), you need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance and then re-check-in your bag where indicated. The Upper Level serves Departures, leading to Concourse L to the left, the Y-shaped gateway to Concourses K & H in the center and to Concourse G to the left. Signs will guide you. Concourse G has gates G1A-G21, and Concourse K has gates K1-K19.

     

    You just need to walk from G to K. There's signs. It's not very hard. It's all in the same terminal.

    My 2 sisters and I will be arriving at Ord from stl on American. One is in wheelchair. We fly to Ireland on Aer Lingus.What is best way to get there?

     

    You arrive at ORD via AA at Terminal 3 - from there take the ATS train (look for signs) to your connecting Terminal 5, served by Air Lingus. T5 has only one Concourse M, wrapping around concession court, and has to the left gates M12-M21 to the right; to the right gates M7-M1, and extends northward in the center to gates M8-M11. It is important that you check with AA as to whether they will transfer your bags to the AirLingus flight - if not, you would have to claim your bags at T3 and re-check them in at T5! The wheelchair will be stored in the hull of the aircraft when you arrive at the gate. Note that on your return to ORD, you will need to go through the customs clearance process.

    Decor is nice, snacks and drinks are just OK, but WAY too small, always crowded, many times has been standing room only.

     

  • Get from T- 3 to T-5

    I have a domestic flight coming into T-3 and then a departure from T-5 just an hour and 50 minutes later out of 5. Do I have to cue for another custom check, or anything?

     

    On arrival at ORD, Terminal 3, take the ATS shuttle train, which runs every few minutes between Terminal 5's ATS level the and domestic terminals 1, 2 & 3. (Only international arrivals need to go through customs procedure). You have enough time.

     

  • how to i connect from terminal 5 to 1

    i am travelling from london to de moines. chicago is the connecting airport. how do i go to terminal 1 and where do i do my immigration

     

    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 (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 1. At T5 you find the ATS train station across from the upper-level roadway - signs will guide you.

    hi looking to book aflight and there is only 50 mins between transfers , im landing fron san fran and flying on to london both are with united airlines , would it be possible ?

     

    You will arrive at ORD either at domestic Terminals 1 or 2 - follow signs to the ATS shuttle train, which runs every few minutes between Terminal 5's ATS level the and domestic terminals 1, 2 & 3. Terminal 5 has Concourse M, which 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. Make sure to look on arrival at overhead screens to find your connecting flight number, gate & departure time. One hour is sufficient.

     

    Actually, you will arrive and depart in Terminal 1 on your journey to London as all United mainline flights depart from Terminal 1 - no need for a transfer.

     

    Almost same scenario..flying from SFO to ORD and connecting to a flight for Brussels with a 56 minute layover..obviously concerned about limited timing to catch the international leg. Arrival and departure terminals listed as T1 on ticket. Although same terminal, do I have to go through security? what if they are same terminal but end up being different concourses?

     

  • 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.

     

  • International to Domestic in 1 hr 30 min

    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.
