  • 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.

    Hi there, I am looking at a flight from Fargo, ND to Knoxville, TN with a 30 minute connection time in Chicago.... Is that even enough time to get off the plane and find the next gate? Would it be in same terminal?? We will only have carry on luggage, so no checked bags to worry about. If the flight out of Fargo is delayed (as can happen due to weather) what would happen if we miss the connection? Any help is appreciated... Thank you

     

    What airline are you flying?

     

  • Connecting flight in 10 mins, same Terminal, possible?

    Hey, I will taking a flight tomorrow from Toronto to Houston, they problem is that usually flights are delayed due to bad weather and based on what happened today I will have 10-15 min to make it from Terminal 3 G13 to L6A. Do you think I can make it? If not I will probably try taking a different flight from Toronto.

     

    It's possible. What happened today has no bearing on what will happen tomorrow. It is only a 5-10 minute walk.

    No flights from Toronto arrive in Terminal 5. Both flights will be in Terminal 3. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. You have enough time.

    I will be traveling on Jan 1st from Monterrey Mexico to Greenville SC, with connection in Chicago with 1 hr and 25 min.. Do you think is enough time? the flight form Monterrey will arrive around 4:30pm

     

    With checked bags that's definitely not enough time. Without checked bags it will be very difficult. What airlines are you flying?

     

    with United airlines.

    I am traveling with a checked bag from Phoenix to Chicago to Dublin. At O'Hare do I need to claim my bag and go thru security again or can I check my bag all the way through? All the flights are on one ticket.

     

    What airlines are you flying?

    We have a connecting flight fron San Diego to Heathrow in o'hare. It is an AA flight to Chicago then British airways to London. Will we have to collect our luggage at Chicago and recheck? Also we land at 15.45 and take off at 17.30 is that enough time to change from terminal 3 to 5?

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation you will not have to do anything with your bags in Chicago on the way to London. Yes, that is enough time to change terminals.

    Hi, I am booking flights for my client, who wishes to fly from LHR via ORD to SLC, the connection time in Chicago is 1h28 mins, is it enough to go through immigration, claim luggage and re-check in? Thank you.

     

    No, that is not enough time with checked baggage. In fact it would be quite difficult even without checked baggage.

    Hi, I will be flying from Colorado Springs to Frankfurt via Chicago ORD. I wiould like to know if once I check in my luggage in COlorado Springs I should claim my luggage in ORD and check in again. I fly United Airlines from COlorado to Chicago and Lufthansa from Chicago to Frankfurt. I also have to change the terminal from 2 to 1. Thank you in advance for your support.

     

    Hi again, I forgot to mention that II will have only 1 hour and 20 minutes for connecting flights. Do you think it is enough time for connecting to the Lufthansa flight to Frankfurt? Thank you!

     

    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. If all flights are on the same reservation all you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

     

    Thank you very much for your qick reply!
