    Hi, i m having connection in ORD, coming in from Heathrow (terminal 5, AA flight) and flying to Lambert, St Louis Int. (terminal 3). Do i have to claim out luggage and re check or will it be transferred for me?

     

    You will arrive in T5, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then take the ATS Train one stop to T3 and go through security and to your departure gate.

     

  • 50 minute layover enough time?

    Hi, I am considering buying a ticket and am wondering if I have enough time to make the following connection: Arriving at 11:20 AM on a United Airlines domestic flight (from ROC), and departing on an American Airlines domestic flight (to LAX) at 12:10. Thank you very much for your advice!

     

    Without checked bags and if you check in for your AA flight online before you leave ROC, that's enough time. But with two tickets purchased separately if you have checked bags you will not have enough time to transfer them.

    Coming in from YYZ stopping in ORD connection to a Wichita bound flight. 90 min layover. Staying in terminal one all United flight as well. Do we have to claim out luggage and re check or will it be transferred for us

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. One or more of your flights may actually be in Terminal 2, but it is connected to Terminal 1 inside security by a walkway if you need to go between terminals.

    I am flying from Lincoln, NE to Munich, Germany with international connection at ORD. my connection time to make my change for the Munich flight is 1 hr. 49 min. Is this possible

     

    Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • IST-ORD-DEN 1.5 hour connection in ORD

    I'm flying on Turkish Airlines from Istanbul, connection time in Chicago is 1.5 hours before United flight to Denver. I won't have checked luggage. Is 1.5 hour enough connection time in Chicago?

     

    Yes, that should barely be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then take the ATS train to Terminal 1 and go through security and to your departure gate.

     

    Thank you. I don't have checked bags, so would 1.5 hours be plenty of time, or does "barely enough time" already assume I have no checked bags?

     

    Yes, having no checked bags makes it a lot easier, there's a special lane for people with no checked bags.

    Hi! I'm arriving at 5pm from Aspen (if the plane is exactly on time) and I need to catch a plane that leaves at 6pm to Amsterdam. The bording will start 5.15 and end 5.45 so I have max. 45 min to reach the gate. Is that possible? Do I have to go through security again?

     

    You do not have to go through security. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Yes, you have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    I have a 65 min. layover in Chicago. Coming from Canada on United to Terminal 1 and leaving from Terminal 3. Since I purchased the ticket altogether I thought the luggage would continue on. Is this the case, because I know if I do have to collect luggage we will never make it.

     

    What airline are you flying out of Terminal 3?

    We're flying in from North Dakota to ORD with a connecting flight to Dublin with an 1 hr 10 min layover, we are suppose to get in at 4pm and take off at 6:10 to Dublin, we have to checked baggage and will have put phones for the tickets for American airlines, we were planing on the tsa precheck of needed, please tell me we have enough time to make the flight, kind regards

     

    Sorry, stupid phone :( we do not have any checked bags, just our backpacks and we will check in and have the tickets on our phones

     

    If both flights are on American you only have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 3. In that case you have enough time.

     

    Awesome! They are both AA, so that takes a huge weight off! So we don't have to go though TSA again or anything? I'm am excited now! Thanks for the quick response! Very helpful

     

    No, all AA gates are connected inside security.

    Hi, I wil have 46 minutes to transfer on may 30th to fly to FRA is that possible?! With Lufthansa. My checked in bags will automatically be transferred right? thank you

     

    If you purchased your tickets together and your first flight is domestic, yes, that is enough time and your baggage will be transferred.

    Flying in from Buffalo to chicago on US airways and going onto American airlines to Montego we have a 45 minute to do this. I am told we do not need to collect luggae. How far am I from arrival of us airways to departure american airlines? Same terminal?

     

    Both flights will be operated by American Eagle/American. Both flights will be in Terminal 3. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

    I am arriving to ORD from STL on AA at 7:54pm and connecting to Turkish for a flight at 9:30pm on 2 sep. ticket. I will not be checking bags. Will I have enough time to connect? Will I have to go though security again?

     

    That should barely be enough time. You will have to take the ATS Train from T3 to T5, get your Turkish boarding pass if you don't already have it, and go through security.

    Do I not need to pick-up mu luggage?

     

    No, you do not. You will go through Canadian Immigration when you get to Kitchener.

    I'm flying from Duluth, MN to Orlando, FL and have an hour layover at O'Hare. Is that enough time to make my connection? I'm travelling alone with a two year old (she will be in a stroller so hopefully I can walk pretty fast). Also, will I have to go through security again in Chicago?

     

    I'm flying with United for both flights.

     

    No, you will not have to go through security in O'Hare. You will arrive in Terminal 2 and depart from Terminal 1 but they are connected inside security by a walkway.
