  • Miss 1st flight on purpose

    Hi I'm flying from Milwaukee and have a connecting flight in Chicago to Honolulu. It was much cheaper to book it from Milwaukee but I live in the Chicagoland area. Can I skip my flight from Milwaukee to Chicago and just get on the flight to Honolulu?

     

    Most airlines will cancel the 2nd leg of your trip if you do not take the 1st leg. They do this to avoid booking ploys.

     

    Yes, you will have to drive up to Milwaukee and take the flight to Chicago.

    Montreal to ORD to SF via United with a 1 hour and 33 minute layover. Arrive Terminal 5 and Depart Terminal 1. Is there enough time to make it through customs, ATS travel, and security on a Saturday evening?

     

    You do not arrive in Terminal 5, almost all flights from Montreal arrive in Terminal 2. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

     

    I thought that United international flights arrive at Terminal 5. Is Montreal considered United domestic that I would arrive Terminal 2? Thank you for your response.

     

    Yes, you pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal, therefore you arrive at a domestic gate.

    Hi, We will be travelling from LHR to San Diego, with a 1 hr 35 min change at Chicago in May. Both flight are with United Airlines on a through ticket, arriving 10:45, departing 12:20. Is this change do-able and do we need to switch terminals? Thankyou

     

    That's just enough time, 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, take the ATS Train to Terminal 1, and go through security.

     

    I'm flying from Edinburgh to Las Vegas and catch a connection in Chicago. We have 1hour 20 mins to get through US immigration and collect bags etc. Is that sufficient time?

     

    *** (the person coming from Edinburgh), no, that is not enough time the minimum for an International to Domestic connection at ORD is 90 minutes, with 2 hours more realistic.

    I have a trip to Ireland booked, the travel agency booked an American Airlines flight from KC to Chicago landing at 805 pm and catching a 930pm flight on Aer Lingus to Dublin. is that enough time?

     

    It's just enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will have to take the ATS Train from Terminal 3 to Terminal 5 and go through security.

    I booked an itinerary for me and another person to fly to Dublin but we have a connection flight at O'Hare. First flight with American Airlines is expected to land Saturday night Terminal 3 at 5:41pm with a 1 hr 40 minute layover before our Aer Lingus flight leaves Terminal 5 at 7:20 pm. I know we have to get outside to the ATS to go to Terminal 5 and back through security. Is this going to be enough time? From what I can tell it'll be close but would rather avoid the $250+ fees in changing flight plans. Especially when a one way ticket to ORD earlier that day would only run about $40.....appreciate any advice and how to get through quickest!

     

    It should be enough time if the flight from MSP is on-time.

    Hi I have a flight from Milwaukee to O'Hare and then to Dublin, my flight to Chicago is with United airlines, I have a 4 hour layover in O'Hare before my flight to Dublin with Aer Lingus; do I need to re-check my bags? Do you know what terminals I'd be arriving in and out of? Thank you

     

    You do not have to claim and re-check your bags if everything is on the same reservation. You will arrive in Terminal 1 or 2 (likely 2) and depart from Terminal 5. You will have to take the ATS Train to Terminal 5 and go through security. You have enough time. Also, the code for Milwaukee is MKE and the code for Dublin is DUB.

     

    Okay thank you so much, where will the ATS train be located to travel to terminal 5? So baggage claim is not necessary? Thank you for your help!

     

    The ATS Train is located outside security across the roadway (there is a pedestrian bridge to it). Yes, baggage claim is not necessary if everything is on the same reservation.

    Hi, I'm flying from St Louis to Chicago and connecting to London. Both the inbound and outbound flights are on American Airlines and in terminal 3. I have 1 hour and 15 minutes between flights. Is this enough time to connect? I've done this journey before and for some reason I was unable to check in to the second flight until I got to Chicago, although that time I was flying via AA and then BA. Thanks.

     

    That is plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in T3.

    landing at ord from Vancouver and then going to bwi on united, is 1 hour 11 minutes enough to get to next gate

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    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 guess...is 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.

    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!
