Hello, I will land at terminal 2 from Buffalo at 9.59 pm , I have connection to San Francisco at Terminal 1 at 10.50 pm , is that possible? how long will it take between T2 - T1 ? I don't know the gate yet Thank you for your help
If both flights are on United/United Express that is enough time. There is a walkway inside security from T2 to T1.
We are flying on United into ORD and then flying to LHR on American. We have separate tickets for the flights and need to meet up with my sister to drop off my boys and pick up her daughter. We have 2 1/2 hours.
Then on the way home, we fly American from London into ORD and fly out on Delta. Again with separate tickets. Again meeting up with my sister and trading kids. This time we have only 2 hours and 15 min. Can you advise on how to be most efficient? Will we need to take our luggage all the way back to Terminal 2 to check it on Delta or can we check it after customs in Terminal 5? Thanks.
On the way to London you should have just enough time. On the way back that will be difficult because you will have to transfer your bags yourself to Delta in Terminal 2 on the ATS Train after clearing Immigration and Customs.
I m flying from New York to Chicago with AA, and connecting flight with JAL to Tokyo. The first flight from New York to Chicago changed and left me only 44 mins layover at Chicago. Is it enough for us to transfer? Thanks
Yes, that's still possible. Both flights will be on the H/K concourse.
P.S. We are checking luggage in Greece and the travel agent told us that he 100% ensured that our suitcases get collected by us in Toronto-final destination. But anywhere i looked on the net people say you have to claim it and recheck it at O'hare when you have a transit, no matter what airline no matter if it's prebooked as one ticket with airlines that cooperate. If it's an international flight you have to claim and recheck...wich means probably 2 hours are not enough..?.. Thank you very very much
Yes, your travel agent is completely wrong. You will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs in Chicago, then re-check them at the re-check desk. 2 hours still is doable.
Hello, my husband and i are flying from Greece to Toronto with corresponding flights in between, through Munich and Chicago. I am a Canadian citizen, my husbund is not. When in O'hare is 2 hours -time enough between our corresponding flights?? Which check points do we have to go through?? We arrive with United and we transit to Air Canada.. Thank you
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 Terminal 2 and go through security. Your husband will need ESTA if he is a Greek citizen, if he is not he will need whatever other authorization his nationality needs to enter the US.

You can walk from E to L inside security if you already have your Spirit Boarding passes.
