I have 1hr 23 mins to make connection. Landing American (Term 3) and then connecting to British Airways (Term 5). Will I have enough time on a friday at 11:00am?
There are no British Airways flights that depart at that time of the day. Please double check your reservation. Where are you flying out of Chicago to?
Sorry, around 4:30 pm. I am flying to London Heathrow.
OK, then if you really do have 1 hr 23 minutes, that is just enough time. You have to take the ATS Train to Terminal 5 and go through security.
I have flight arriving term c from kc and catching aer lingus to Dublin the layover is an hour 5 min, is that long enough?
Your title says 1h45m, but your comment says 1h5m. That's a big difference. Also, are they booked on the same reservation? No matter what, you will take the ATS train to the International Terminal for your flight to Dublin. 1h5m is not enough no matter what. 1h45m should be enough if they are booked on one reservation, which means that United would check your bags all the way through to Ireland.
yes, I meant 1 hour 45 min. lol, typo. It is the same reservation .
Yes, that is long enough. If you are on United you will arrive in Terminal 1 or 2, There is no Terminal C. You depart from Terminal 5.
thank you, I remember a very long security line the last time, and I wasnt sure how long it took us to get thru. Debating the prescreen that you can pay for. Thanks again
PreCheck won't help you in Terminal 5 as they don't have a Precheck line there as none of the airlines in Terminal 5 are Precheck participants.
lol thank God I have you! LOL
Flying from CVG to ORD and eventually to Heathrow.
Will we need to go through security again- ie can I purchase water now?
What airline are you flying to Heathrow?
Then no, you won't have to go through security in Chicago. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Arrive Terminal 1, depart terminal 2. Will I have to go back through security check?
If both flights are on the same reservation, no you do not. There is a walkway between T1 and T2 inside security.
Awesome! Thank you!
flying from Edinburgh,UK to Las Vegas with a connection time of 1hour 40mins, all flights booked with United, will this be enough time ?
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. 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.
Would it be worth looking into priority security to avoid queues ?
I believe it is worth it in general to pay $85 every five years to avoid all security lines. However, I suppose it depends on how often you travel.
MCI - ORD arriving at 9:25, operated by gojet dba united express. ORD to NRT departing at 10:25 on ANA. Booking on ANA website. Question is, do I have enough time to make it? And do I have to recheck bags? Thank you!
Yes, you have enough time. No, you don't have to do anything with your bags. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate which are connected inside security.
Great! Thank you very much!
Looking at two options, both late in the evening. Which is a better option, 53 mins from United Express to United, or 1 hour 22 minutes from United Express to Spirit? Can I make both, or either?? Please advise
Both domestic, with checked bags and TSA Precheck
The United Express to United since you won't have to do anything with your bags or go through security again. Going from United Express to Spirit would require claiming your bags, re-checking them, and going through security again.
Have Aer Lingus arriving 210P, no baggage, pre-customs done in Dublin. Departing terminal 2 at 354P. Is this doable? thx
Yes, you'll simply walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.
You can't walk from Terminal 5 to Terminal 2. You have to take the ATS Train to Terminal 2 and go through Security. Still should be just about enough time though.
Hi, we are travelling to CUN from YYZ via ORD. Now the flight has been booked directly through United and we have been given 74minutes as a connection. How does it work? Have we got to go through customs and collect baggage and then recheck it in or does our baggage get transferred straight over? We are from the UK so not sure if that makes a difference with customs!
This is probably not enough time to make the connection, but United will book you on the next flight to Toronto. However, a problem could come up if you have a connection in Toronto.
Andy Misunderstood. From what I read you are flying YYZ-ORD-CUN. In that case you will pre-clear US Immigration in Toronto and all you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Chicago on your way to Cancun.
My apologies, I did misread it. You do have enough time.
Concerned about aconnecting flight at Chicago O'hare. We have 35 minutes between connecting flights. Is that enough time?
Where are you flying from and to? What airlines?
