Hello, I am travelling from Rome to Toronto, with United and will land at 4:15 pm at terminal 5, with my next flight to Toronto (flight bought on the same ticket, both with United) at 5:31 pm terminal 1. I have 1 hour and 15 minutes to reach my flight. Will my luggage be delivered to Toronto directly without rechecking it? Is there enough time to catch my connecting flight? Thank you!
No, you have to 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 T1 and go through security. You do not reasonably have enough time. 90 minutes is the bare minimum with at least 2 hours recommended.
My flight from GSP will reach ORD and then connecting flight (single ticket) to New Delhi (through Air India) at Terminal 5. I have 2 hours. Is it sufficient time to go from terninal 2 to terminal 5 with two small kids (1 and 4 years old). Please suggest
Yes, that should be enough time.
Thanks...how much time it will take to cross the security check in terminal 5? Please let us know ...could you please let me know the gate no. For air India on terminal 5?
It should take 30-45 minutes to go through security in T5. You won't know the exact gate in T5, but Air India usually uses a gate close to security.
I'm arriving on a weekday about 8:00 am from Columbia CAE on United Express, headed to Honolulu HNL on United. Is 1 hr 2 min enough time to make the connection? Or is that cutting it really close?
Yes, that is possible. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I am travelling from Denver to Bangalore ,my American airlines flight lands at Terminal 3 Chicago Ohare airport and I need to catch my international flight at terminal 5(Qtar airlines).Do I need to pass through security again in Chicago(b/w T3 and T5).I have 2 hours layover.I have a single ticket from Denver till Bangalore.
Yes, you will have to go through security again in Terminal 5. You should have enough time.
Thank you so much!!!
Hello, i am travelling from London to Chicago with British Airways and will land at 18:35, with my next flight to New Orleans (flight bought on the same ticket, operated by American Airlines) at 20:00. I am traveling with a visa so need to go through immigration, and also have a checked bag. Is there enough time to catch my connecting flight? Thank you!
That is a very difficult connection. Be prepared to spend an extra night in Chicago if there is not a later flight to New Orleans.
I am traveling from Grand Rapids, MI to Chicago to Tokyo with a 1 hr 37 min layover, will that be enough time??
If both tickets are on the same reservation yes, that is enough time - all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I have 1 hour and 10 minutes to get off my flight from St. Louis, and get to my flight leaving for Shanghai. I will have a checked bag, and I am a US citizen. What are the requirements for exiting the United States? Will I have enough time to go through immigration and not miss my flight?
There are no "requirements" to exit the US. If both flights are on the same reservation all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You just show your passport to the gate agent when you board the plane to Shanghai. You have enough time.
I will be coming from MSP-ORD with 2 checked bags and a carry-on by United. And connecting international flight ORD-HKG-CEB by Cathay Pacific. Do I have to claim my luggage when I land in ORD and re-check to Terminal 5? Will I have a hard time with bringing luggages in the transit from Terminal 1 to Terminal 5.
Also 2 separate booking reservations by the way... One from MSP is by UNITED.. The international is Cathay Pacific
Yes, you have to claim your bags from United, take them on the ATS Train to Terminal 5 and re-check it with Cathay. If you can't carry all those bags yourself you will have a tough time.
I am looking at a 45 layover in ORD. I am flying United from JAN -> ORD -> BOS. Will this be enough time to make the connection?
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. There is a walkway inside security from Terminal 2 where you arrive to Terminal 1 where you depart.
I am on a flight from MCI to ORD on sept 17 & due to arrive at 7:49 a.m. My connection flight to Cancun departs at 8:40 a.m. Can you tell me arrival and departure terminals, please? Also, will I have enough time to make my connection. Thank you.55
I can't tell you your terminals unless you post what airline you are on. If you post that, I can help you.
Sorry. American Airlines.
Both flights will be in Terminal 3.
