  • 50 min. enough for terminal 3 to 5?
    May 11, 2015
    Finnair website shows a flight combination which I like due to its fare and convenient departure/arrival times. My only problem is that the AA flight arrives at terminal 3 at 21:10 and the next flight leaves from terminal 5 at 22:00 !!! I called Finnair and they said this is sufficient time but I am not so sure. Could someone tell me if I have to go out of immigration and then again go through security at terminal 5? Is this doable? Thank you.


    Additional info: AA 2838 arrives at ORD 3 at 21:10 (from Montreal) AY 010 leaves ORD 5 at 22:00 (to Helsinki)

    Hi, we will be flying from Tampa on United connecting in O Hare, flying Swiss to Zurich. and we only have 1 hr and 15 minutes. Is this enough time from Terminal 1 to 5?


    Yes, that should be barely enough time to take the ATS Train from T1 to T5 and go through security.


  • Collecting luggage

    I am flying from India on quarter airline to Chicago then connection to Indianapolis do I have to collect my luggage in Chicago and rebook it


    What is "quarter Airline"? Did you purchase all your flights on one ticket or separate tickets? What airline are you flying to Indianapolis. You will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs.

  • Is 37 mins enough?
    May 7, 2015
    Hi! I will be flying from EWR to MBS and have a connecting flight in ORD. Is 37 mins enough if i have to get from terminal 1 to terminal 2? Do i have to recheck my baggage? And how long will it take me to go from one terminal to the other? Both flights are with United Airlines.


    You will not have to claim your baggage in ORD. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is a walkway connecting T1 and T2 inside security. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time. But if you can standby for an earlier flight from Newark, I would do that.


  • United Flt short connection
    May 6, 2015
    Will 55 minutes be enough time to connect at ORD if I am going from one United flight to another-both are domestic flights


    Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. All United gates at ORD are connected inside security.


  • Terminal 1 to 5
    May 6, 2015
    Have 45 minutes to get from United Express (terminal 1, concourse C?) to international terminal 5 to catch Lufthansa flight to Frankfurt. (Booked by travel agent). Realistically, not enough time? (Husband will need wheelchair transport to the monorail.)


    United Express flights can arrive in either Terminal 1 or Terminal 2. Lufthansa flights do NOT leave from Terminal 5. They leave from Terminal 1. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Domestic to International
    May 5, 2015
    I will have 1 hr and 45 minutes to get from a United domestic flt Terminal 1 to the International Terminal (United to Rome). Is that enough time? I have TSA and am Platinum with United, which helps.


    No United flights depart from the International Terminal. Your flight to Rome will depart from Terminal 1. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.


  • Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 required connection time
    May 4, 2015

    Terminal 1 and 2 at ORD are connected inside security by a walkway.


    Thank you, Also, my wife is very slow walker, what is the best way to obtain a ride for her on a cart. Are they available between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. We will have to hurry.


    The only way to ride in a cart is by requesting wheelchair service.


  • lay over time an hour
    May 1, 2015
    There was an involuntary schedule change and my lay over time is only a bit more than an hour. I arrived at ORD (from MSP) at 10:48am and my next flight is an international one (Korean Air) which leaves on 12:35 pm. Is it enough time or do I have to change my flight I bought tickets separately and wonder if I have too check in my baggage again.


    That should barely be enough time if you do have to claim and transfer your baggage. Delta may check your bags through to Korean as Delta and Korean are skyteam parters if you show your Korean confirmation at MSP.


  • Augusta , GA to Delhi
    Apr 30, 2015
    Hi I will be travelling from Augusta, GA to Chicago via Delta which lands on Terminal 2. I will have checked in baggage and then have a connection in almost 2 hrs with Air India from Terminal 5. I have never been to this airport before. Can someone please guide me how to go from Terminal 2 to 5 . And how much time would it take? Thanks.


    You just follow signs to the ATS Train to Terminal 5. If you are purchasing two separate tickets you will have to transfer your bags yourself from Terminal 2 to check them with Air India in Terminal 5. 2 hours should be definitely enough time if your bags are checked through and barely enough time if they are not.


    Thanks. Yes I have seprate tickets. Will I need to go through security check before terminal 5. Or the only security check I will gothru will be at terminal 5 when I am boarding airIndia.


    The only security check will be in Terminal 5 between the Air India check-in counter and the gate.


  • United Flight - ORD to LAX
    Apr 30, 2015
    I'm flying with my pregnant wife from ORD to LAX. Layover time 43 minutes. Going from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1. Will this be enough time? Do we have to go through security checks again? It says we need to be there 15 minutes prior to boarding but I do not see how that is possible.


    You are connecting in ORD? Terminal 2 and 1 are connected by a walkway inside security. It is quite possible assuming the first flight is on-time. The 15 minute warning is just a warning not to dilly-dally.


    Yes. Connecting in ORD, coming from DTW. Thanks for the response!


  • Terminal 1 to terminal 2
    Apr 30, 2015
    what is best way to get to terminal 2 from terminal 1 for a connecting flightwithout having to go through security. Travelling with a senior.


    There is a walkway inside security between them, it connects to Terminal 1 near the low B gates, around B3.


  • Young daughter coming in international
    Apr 29, 2015
    Hello. My 14-year old is flying in with a group from France. Later the same afternoon, her siblings and I will land in ORD on a domestic connection. I'd like for her to meet us and take the last leg home with us. Is this do-able for someone is accustomed to travel and airports but has never done it alone? She would need to leave the international terminal and meet us in the AA terminal. Alternatively, could I meet her at in the international terminal since I'll be a ticketed passenger (although not international)?


    You could meet her on the lower level of the International Terminal where she will exit customs. However, I think a 14 year old is capable of following signs to the ATS Train to Terminal 3 and taking it one stop.
