  • transfer from United to Hainan Airlines
    Nov 2, 2016

    Hi, I bought two tickets, one is from Cleveland to Chicago by United airlines and the other is from Chicago to Beijing by Hainan airlines. Can I checked in Cleveland without picking up my baggage in Chicago and recheck again? If I need to recheck again, one is in terminal 1 and the other is in terminal 5. Which is the fastest route for me to make the transfer? What is the fastest time then? Is 3 hours enough? Thanks!

     

    No, you have to claim your bags from United in Terminal 1, take them on the ATS Train to Terminal 5, re-check them with Hainan and go through security. 3 hours should be enough time.

     

    Thank you so much for your reply! I just hope my first flight will not delay!

    I am going to Indianapolis from Mumbai via Abudhabi and O`Hare Chicago. Do i need to collect my bags and drop again for domestic flight? i will land in terminal 5 & have to go to T3 after immigration, baggage collection security check .is it doable in 3 hrs?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Abu Dhabi. If all flights are on the same reservation you just have to take the ATS Train from T5 to T3 and go through security in Chicago. You have plenty of time.

    I'm going to fly from Dayton, OH to Hochiminh City Vietnam in Jan 1, 2017. I'm planning to get 2 separate tickets, 1 from DAY to ORD, and 1 form ORD to SGN. There is 3.5 hours between these flights. I know that I have to re-checkin for the second flights. I have 4 luggage. Is it enough time to carry the luggage and check in? Thank you.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

    Hi, I've got a 50 min layover from Montreal to Portland via Chicago. Flying to ORD with EXPRESSJET (doing business as UNITED EXPRESS) and to PDX with UNITED. (So I assume going from terminal 2 to T1. Is that enough (considering I assume I'll have to go through immigration)?

     

    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.

    We are flying into ORD, December 19th from SFO, arriving ORD at 14:33 in Terminal 1. Our connecting flight to Dublin is in Terminal 5 on Aer Lingus at 16:00. That gives us one hour and 30 minutes to make the connection. Is this doable? Our baggage will be checked so we will not have anything with us other than a back pack. Is there Pre TSA check at Terminal 5?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. No, there is no Pre-Check in T5 and Aer Lingus isn't a pre-check participant anyway.

    I am flying into Ohare from South Carolina and then catching a flight to Ireland. Is one hour and 55 minutes enought time to make that connecting flight if I need a wheelchair

     

    What airlines are you flying?

     

    flying in on united and out on aer lingus

     

    Then you have just enough time. You will arrive in Terminal 1 or 2 and depart from Terminal 5, so they will have to take you on the ATS Train to Terminal 5 and through security again.

     

  • UA Vancouver flight arriving in T5?

    My wife has a pair of UA flights going from Vancouver through ORD to Boston tomorrow. She's only been given an hour for the connection, and we thought she'd be preclearing customs in YVR, but UA is reporting that that flight is coming into the International terminal. Is it possible that she'll preclear in Vancouver and fly into T5? Or does the T5 arrival mean that she's going to have to be clearing customs in Chicago, which would mean the connection is a pipe dream?

     

    Rest assured that she will pre-clear and that the flight will arrive in Terminal 1. For some reason United flight status shows future-day flights from Vancouver arriving in Terminal 5 although they do not. The correct T1 gate will appear tomorrow.

    Thanks for the reply; it eased our concerns. You were right; they have her flying into T1 now.

    Hi, I'm coming from Tokyo with Detroit as my destination, with a 2.5 hour layover in Chicago. Will I need to go through immigration in Chicago, or will I do that in Detroit? The reason I ask is because of the short layover. I need to know if that's enough time, because I"ll be traveling with my 6 month old daughter. Please help. Thank you!

     

    In Chicago you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs, then if your bags are tagged to Detroit you will drop them off at the re-check desk, then take the ATS Train to your departure terminal and go through security and to your departure gate. You have enough time.
