  • Domectic to international connecting flight
    Oct 29, 2015
    I'll be flying into ORD from Austin, TX and taking a connecting flight to Toronto, Canada (Both flights are American Airlines). I have one hour in between flights, so my question is: Will I have to pick up my baggage and re-check it? If so, is an hour enough time?


    No, you don't have to do anything with your bags in Chicago. You just walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate both in Terminal 3. You should have plenty of time. You will go through Canadian immigration and customs when you get to Toronto.

    We are flying from Mco to ord and arrive at 1555 in terminal 3 and need to change terminal to 5 to get a flight to LHR at1810 will we have enough time and do we have to claim our luggage again and recheck it in?


    As long as both tickets were bought on the same reservation you won't have to transfer your bags in Chicago on your way to London. You have enough time.

  • do i have enough time to connect?
    Oct 23, 2015
    I will fly into ORD with Asiana and connect to Cle. My connecting time is 1 hour and 50 minutes. Do I have enough time to go through the Customs and Immigration and recheck my luggage to make the connection? TIA


    That should be just barely enough time if your bags are tagged through to CLE (all tickets purchased on the same reservation).


    Why would you care? Cleveland??? Stay in Chicago bro!

  • checked bags n layover time
    Oct 21, 2015
    Hi all, i will be arriving on an United flight from Ontario canada on Jan11th at 7:10 am with checked luggage, my flight out is at 10:40am, just to make sure baring any flight delays this should be enough time for customs and to grab my bag outside of customs and train it to the other terminal shouldnt it? Since I am going through Customs I am sure i have to physically move my bag a big, it was a a few years ago i did this and thats my memory at least


    i should mention i will be flying out of London Ontario so will have to clear customs in Chicago


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. You don't have to move your bag very far - just from the baggage claim, through customs, and to the re-check desk right after customs, as long as all flights are on the same reservation.


  • Will I have enough time? PUJ to ORD to LAX
    Oct 18, 2015
    I fly in from punta cana to Chicago on united and land in terminal 5 at 415 my connecting flight leaves at 530 in terminal 1. Will I have enough time to go thru customs and make my flight?


    1 hr 15 mins is well under the recommended international to domestic connection time at ORD.


    What is the recommended time for connecting international flights? Is 2 hours and 20 min enough? I am going to switch my flight plan.


    2 hrs 20 minutes should be doable.


  • LHR to ORD to TYS Connection Info?
    Jan 11, 2015
    Hello Im flying from London to ORD with Virgin Atlantic. Then on a seperate booking im flying American Airlines from ORD to TYS (Knoxville) With it being a seperate booking, Will I still be ok to go through to transfer desk give AA my bags and proceed or do I need to go out of the airport and back in through Departures. Or other..... Cheers for any info. Much appreciated.


    No, you will have to claim your bags from Terminal 5 and take them on the ATS train to Terminal 3 to re-check them with AA and pay a checked bag fee. You will need at least 2.5 hours for your transfer.


  • Moving from Terminal 2 to Terminal 5

    Hi, I am arriving at ORD from DTE with Delta at 9:31. I then have to catch an international flight with Korean Airlines to Inchoen at Terminal 5. Flight is at 11:30. Do I have enough time to connect? Thank you.


    Yes, that should be enough time. If you purchased your tickets together your bags will be transferred and you should be issued both boarding passes in Detroit, so you just have to take the ATS train from T2 to T5 and go through security.


  • LGA to ORD to YVR
    Jan 10, 2015
    I have a UA flight from LGA and arrives at ORD around 336PM and I have to make a connecting flight that leaves at 520 to Vancouver.. Both are with United Airlines. Do I have enough time? Do I need to clear customs? Do I need to claim my bags? ... Thank You


    You only have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate which will both be in Terminal 1. You do not go through US Customs when leaving the US. You will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs when you get to Vancouver.

    I'm coming from Louisville (SDF Airport) to ORD what terminal is United Airlines in Chicago Airport?And then fly to ICN Airport for my International flight.


    Your flight from Louisville will arrive in Terminal 1 or 2 (likely 2). Your flight to ICN, if it is operated by Asiana or Korean, will depart from Terminal 5. They are connected outside security by the ATS Train.


    Thanks for the information guys !
