My flight arrives from Berlin (TXL) at 11:45 am on a Sunday in April and my connecting flight to Denver leaves at 1:20 pm. Will I have enough time to get through customs, etc.?
What airlines are you flying? Are both flights on the same reservation?
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 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.
My United Airlines flight arrives in Chicago from London at 3:20 pm on Jan 15 at Terminal 5. I have 3 hours to go to Terminal 2 for an Air Canada flight to Montreal at 6:20 pm. Do I have enough time?
Yes that is plenty of time.
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.
Thank you!
I arrive from Amsterdam to ORD at 2:30 and my flight to go home leaves from ORD at 4:10... Is that enough time?
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. What airlines are you flying?
I am leaving Cancun Mexico to fly to Toronto Canada flying with united airlines.
I have a 1.5 hour connection and require to change from terminal 5 to terminal 1. Is this enough time? As I am leaving to return to Canada do I need to go through immigration?
Yes, you will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the ATS Train to Terminal 1 or Terminal 2, then go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I will be flying into ORD via Austrian Airlines, scheduled to arrive at 1:55pm. I have a domestic transfer flight on United scheduled to leave at 3:55pm. I will not have any checked luggage and have TSA precheck. Is two hours enough time to get through customs and security for my connecting flight?
Yes, that should be enough time.
I booked my flight through united web , I flight from ROA to ORD then connect to EVA airways , in my ticket it said premier access , that it meant ?
What exactly is your question? You will arrive in Terminal 1 or 2 (likely 2), then have to take the ATS Train to Terminal 5 and go through security. You will not have priority security in Terminal 5 unless you are flying business class.
