If I land at Ohare at 5:45pm from Heathrow on United and want to fly to Omaha on United at 7:20 pm, is that enough time for me to make Omaha flight? Don't know how much time I need to allow.
That's barely enough time if everything is on the same reservation and everything goes smoothly.
There will be 6 of us (all seniors) flying from Toronto to Chicago on United (arrival 7:46 am). We then need to change to another United flight for the trip to Honolulu (departs 9:15 am). We are very nervous about changing planes. Is our luggage an issue? Will we need to travel very far? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate as you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All United Gates in Chicago are within about a 15-20 minute walk and your walk will likely be shorter.
HI there, at Chicago O'Hare, my wife must take the pedestrian terminal tunnel from 1 to 2, how long on average does it take? She had a delayed flight outgoing, and has 15 minutes before the next flight leaves....
It is not a tunnel, it is a fairly short walkway from T1 to T2 (The tunnel is from T1 B to T1 C). There's a chance her second flight will be delayed as well.
Will I need to go through Security in Chicago from an American flight originating in Kansas City with final destination of Rome?
No, on your way to Rome all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

Yes, that should be enough time.
I am arriving at ORD T3 and connecting Etihad in T5. Is there an airside connection or I need to come out and go thru security in T5?
There is no airside connection. You have to take the ATS Train to T5 and go through security.

How much time should we allow? Will we need to collect luggage, and go to Terminal 5 then go through check- in to recheck luggage then security? We have not purchased the domestic ticket yet.
Considering Frontier is often delayed, I'd want at least 4 hours.
Flying Manchester(UK) to ORD then to Toronto. I have 1hr45 between flights. Is this enough time to change terminals? And if both flights are AA will i need to recheck my bag?
Yes, you will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your bag, go through US Customs, re-check your bag at the re-check desk, then take the ATS Train to Terminal 3 and go through security. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Howdy

Arriving Terminal 5 on Etihad 151 from Abu Dhabi. One clears US customs in AUH. US citizen.

Departing a United Express flight out of Terminal 2.

The flights are on separate reservations, but the bags are checked all the way through to Omaha.

Will bags need to be claimed and rechecked in Chicago or can one just proceed to the train from 5 to 2?

Thanks!
We'll have 2,5 hours between flights. 10am arrival on EY and 12:30 departure on UA.
If it's two separate reservations it's unlikely you will be able to get your bags checked through to Omaha, but if you do then you won't have to claim them in Chicago. If you don't you will have to take your bags to Terminal 1 to re-check with United.
