  • IS 2Hrs 40m Enough?
    Dec 28, 2016

    Hello, I am student travelling for the 1st time to usa.I need to travel to Indianapolis.I'll reach ORD terminal 2 at 6:30 am and need to take United airlines at 9:10 am.Is 2 hrs 40 mins enough time with all security and baggage check up? will it be painful and hassle? What if i missed?

     

    What airline are you flying into Chicago? Where are you coming from?

     

    Travelling from HYD to ORD flight AI 127 . Then need to catch UA3668 schedule to departure at 9:10

     

    You will not arrive in Terminal 2. You will arrive in Terminal 5. There you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk (if they are tagged to IND), then take the ATS Train to Terminal 1 or Terminal 2, go through security and to your departure gate. You get off the Train in T2 if your departure gate starts with an E or an F and get off in T1 if it begins with a B or C. You have enough time if everything is on the same reservation and the Air India flight is on-time.

    Hi. I am flying into ORD and catching a connecting flight to Brussels. I only have 50 mins between landing in ORD, getting to the international terminal, and getting through security again to catch my flight. This sounds pretty risky to me. It this timeline even a possibility?

     

    No flights to Brussels depart from the International Terminal. If both flights are on United you just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 1/2. All United gates are connected inside security. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.

    I've booked a trip to Vegas in March and I've always flown nonstop. This time I have 1 stop each way and I'm worried and not sure what the process is, would I have enough time and what do I do about my luggage in the hold. I'm a British passport holder This flight operated by United from London to Chicago landing in Terminal 5 and the next plane is also operated by United from Chicago Terminal 1 to Las Vegas and the time between flights in 1 hour 55

     

    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, go through security and to your departure gate. You should have just enough time.

     

    thank, I was debating on bring a hold on case rather than checking one in to save a bit of time. Ideally I would like to bring a bigger case but I'm not sure if this will delay things

    I have a connection at ORD coming from Winnipeg, Canada and flying to LHR. Is 1 hour 5 min enough time to make the connection? Thanks.

     

    Yes, that is enough time if both flights are on United. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Winnipeg.

    What ORD terminal would I be arriving at? What terminal do I depart from and how do I get there? Thanks

     

    You will arrive in 3 and depart 1. They are connected by walkways through terminal 2 inside security if you don't have any checked bags. Flying to ORD is an awfully out-of-the-way route to get from PHX to SFO.

    I have a 2hr layover arriving international from Doha, Qatar to Chicago, and connecting to a flight to Phoenix, AZ. Is this time sufficient including customs & immigration? What is the fastest way to make the connection? Any help is much appreciated.

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation that is 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, then take the ATS Train to your departure terminal (if your flight to Phoenix is on American, that's Terminal 3), then go through security and to your departure gate.

    I'm trying to get from C8 to F3. What is the quickest way? I have 1 hour

     

    Walk. It shouldn't take more than 15 minutes. You just walk to the center of C, through the tunnel to B, make a right down B, follow the signs to the connector to F, and then up F. F3 is very close to the base of F.

    I have two separate reservations...one from Raleigh to Chicago (Delta) and one from Chicago to Tokyo (American). I will not have a checked bag. Will I have to leave the terminal and re-enter security. I have a two hour layover. Will this be enough time?

     

    If you don't have checked bags, then you can check in online for your AA flight and walk directly from your arrival gate in T2 to your departure gate in Terminal 3 inside security. You have enough time even if you have to exit security if your Delta flight is on-time. Note that Delta does not fly nonstop from Raleigh to Chicago.

     

  • Toronto to Doha via ORD

    Hello I'm flying from Toronto to Doha via Chicago (AA & Qatar Airways) with a 2hrs50mins layover in ORD. Is it enough time to connect to the flight to DOHA. The itinerary says to connect from Term 3 to Term 5. What is the procedure for connection? Thanks

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. In Chicago you will exit Terminal 3 and go to the ATS Train to Terminal 5 and go through security in T5 and to your departure gate. You have enough time.

     

    Thanks for your help. The transition was smooth. I did not have to take the ATS train instead they had a Bus which took everyone who were flying on Qatar to Terminal 5 and hence there was no security in T5 to be done. And I guess I had been already pre-cleared in Toronto. I took about 1 hour for the transition to T5.. Now what will be the procedure for vice-versa? Coming back from DOHA via ORD to Toronto. Will I have to get my bags from baggage claim when I land in ORD and check in again to YYZ? Thanks again.

    Hi, at the end of December I have a United Express flight coming in to ORD from Florida and leaving ORD for Vancouver on United... I've been told there is a terminal change. Is 60 minutes enough time to make this connecting flight?

     

    Your flight from Florida could arrive in Terminal 1 or 2 and you will depart from Terminal 1. If you arrive in T2 it is connected to T1 inside security by a walkway. You have enough time.

    I am traveling with a checked bag from LGA to ORD to Aruba with United Airline. I have 1hr 20min for connection. Is this enough time?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 1.

    Hi, I am travelling from milwaukee (MKE) to Narita (Japan) and I am connecting through chicago (ORD) airport. I just have 57 min to go from terminal 2 to terminal 1 , is it enough time ? Do I need to go through the security?Both flights are on same reservation.

     

    You do not need to go through security. There is a walkway that connects Terminal 2 to Terminal 1 inside security. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.

    I'm traveling from Phoenix to Beirut on British with checked bags and stopping over in Chicago and London before I get there. I have 1h 20 min to go from terminal 3 to terminal 5 at ORD. Do I have enough time? And will I have to collect my bags and recheck them at T5?

     

    If everything is on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your bags in Chicago. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
