  • detroit - ohare - tokyo connection
    Apr 27, 2015
    i have a 40 minute layover between my united flight from detroit to my united flight to tokyo. all is in terminal one. will this be enough time? will there be a security check at ohare?


    There is no security check at O'Hare, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Your flight from Detroit may actually arrive in Terminal 2 but it is connected to Terminal 1 inside security.

    No, not possible. Either get an earlier flight from London or a later flight from Cleveland.


  • MIA to ORD to FAR
    Apr 26, 2015
    Flying AA from Miami to Fargo, ND with connection in Chicago. Landing ORD at: 7:03 pm Departing at: 8:00pm. Enough time?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 3.


  • [sea to lhr through ord] 60 mins enough?
    Apr 26, 2015
    My flight is with United Airlines from Seattle to Heathrow with a connection in Chicago. The flight is set to arrive at 5.20pm (I don't know which terminal) and the next one departs at 6.20pm from Terminal 1. Is this enough time to make it? Will have to recheck baggage? What happens if there's a delay on their end and I miss the flight?


    If your first flight is on United it will also arrive in Terminal 1. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time. If you miss your flight because your first flight is late, you will be rebooked on the next flight. There is a 9 PM flight to Heathrow.


    Yes, the first flight is with United as well. Thank you for replying. It was the only flight available to me and I was kind of panicking.


  • Transfer tim enough?
    Apr 25, 2015
    I arrive on United at 7.10pm in terminal 1 - need to claim baggage and then check in for the 8.30 Emirates flight to Dubai in terminal 5. Is this enough time? can I check in the baggage at terminal 1?


    No, you will need to bring the bags to Terminal 5. You will barely have enough time if your first flight is on-time. The Emirates check-in desk closes 1 hour before departure, so you only have 20 minutes to arrive, get your bags, and take the ATS Train to Terminal 5. If you can get an earlier flight to Chicago I highly recommend it.


  • 2:05 layover enough?
    Apr 25, 2015
    Hi. Will be flying in from Qatar and out to DSM with 2 hours 5 mins between flights. I believe it will be terminal 5 and 3. Will this be enough time for the layover?


    Yes, if your tickets were purchased on one reservation that should be enough time.


  • PIT -> (layover time?) ORD -> International destination
    Apr 23, 2015
    I am traveling from Pittsburgh to Chicago OHare. At Chicago OHare, I am taking an international flight. Is 2 a hour layover time at Ohare enough? Will I clear security at Pittsburgh or Chicago OHare? I also will have checked baggage, so must I pick it up at Ohare or will it be checked to my final (international) destination?


    What airlines are you flying? Did you buy your tickets together or separately?


  • 40 Mins United Airlines
    Apr 22, 2015
    Hello, we're flying United from Houston and have a connection time of only 40 mins to catch an international United Airlines flight to London. I noticed that United International Departures are in Terminal 1, but do the majority of inbound domestic United flights end up in terminal 1 as well or does United use a lot of terminal 2 for inbound domestic flights?


    Both of your flights will be in Terminal 1.


  • Flying from Toronto YYZ connecting in ORD to fly to SAN San Diego
    Apr 22, 2015
    Hi there I am booking flights for our president. I need to know if a 1 hour and 23 minute layover is enough time at ORD (assuming the flight is on time) Arriving from Toronto, Canada, layover at ORD and connecting to San Diego The flights are both United flights


    Yes, that is enough time. He or she will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All he or she has to do in Chicago is walk from the arrival gate to the departure gate.


  • 48 mins enough?
    Apr 22, 2015
    Arriving from Denver, departing to Frankfurt Germany. Will we make our flight (if 1st is on time?)


    (United Airlines)


    Yes, you should have enough time if your first flight is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 1.


  • LHR-ORD-LAX / BA and AA
    Apr 18, 2015
    Hi, I was wondering if I will have enough connecting time at ORD? I arrive from LHR by BA to terminal 5 at 13.45 and leave for LAX from terminal 3 at 15.10. It is all booked in the same reservation, but I will have checked luggage with me, and I am a EU national. I assume I will have to go through immigration and pick up my luggage and re-check it? So there is a big risk I will miss my connecting flight. What happens if I do? Will they rebook me free of charge? Thank you in advance!


    That is 5 minutes shorter than the recommended International to Domestic connection time. Yes, you will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs, then re-check it at the transfer desk immediately after. Then take the ATS Train to T3 and go through security. You will probably make it if your flight arrives on-time. If you do miss your connection you will rebooked on the next available AA flight to LAX. AA has lots of flights from ORD to LAX.


  • ORD connection time from SFO to YXU through ORD
    Apr 18, 2015
    I am flying from SFO to London Ontario, canada through ORD on united/united express. There are two flights, one has a 1 hour 15 min connection the other option is a 2 hour connection. Is the 1 hour 15 min enough or should I book the 2 hour connection time


    1 hr 15 is enough. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Would the gates be in the same terminal? And is the 6:38 am united flight from SFO usually on time?


    Morning departures tend to be on-time more often. You will arrive in Terminal 1 and likely depart from Terminal 2, but they are connected inside security by a walkway.

    Hi! I have a flight from Minneapolis to Chicago and then a connection to Abu Dhabi, but I will arrive to terminal 2 and the flight departures from terminal 5... I have 2 different tickets, so I probably have to claim my baggage, and check in again, I am also not from U.S. so I have to go through migration before I leave the country... Is it 3 hours enough time to do this?


    There is no US exit immigration. You will just have to go through security in T5. 3 hours should be enough time.


  • flight connection time
    Apr 17, 2015
    Hi I will come from Dubai to Chicago and after 4 hr 30 min to connect my next flight to Nashville... So is it enough time for that? Both tickets are different... I am coming with emirates ... I think emirates airline is not punctual in time, is It? For that I will take long stopover... I have same schedule for return my journey... Thanks in advance... Priyank Patel...


    That should be enough time both ways. Emirates runs on-time pretty regularly. What airline are you flying to Nashville?


    American Airline for Nashville...


    Yes. that should be enough time. Terminal 3 where American operates and Terminal 5 where Emirates is are only one stop apart on the ATS Train.


    Thanks mate....


  • terminal 3 to terminal 5
    Apr 16, 2015
    Can anyone tell me how long do i need to travel from Terminal 3 to terminal 5. I have 3 hours and 30 min layover time. With AA from RDU to ORD terminal 3, then my next connecting flight is Qatar Airway at terminal 5. Do I need to clear security and collect luggage at Terminal 3 before I travel to terminal 5 and re-check-in again my luggage?


    If you purchased your tickets together you will not have to claim your baggage. However, you will have to go through security again in Terminal 5 after taking the ATS Train there.
