  • Edinburgh to Vegas with 1h 40 min stopover
    Jun 13, 2016

    Flying in and out with United. In at terminal 5 and out terminal 1. What is the procedure with luggage if on a straight through ticket? At terminal 1 will we need to go through security again? Is 1 hour and 40 mins doable to make connecting flight as seems tight to me

     

    Yes, in Terminal 5 you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the ATS Train to Terminal 1 and go through security. Even though this is a legal connection, you realistically will only make it if your flight from Edinburgh is early or your flight to Vegas is delayed.

     

    Thanks for the reply. Just hope that flight arrives early and not too much of a hold up at immigration.

     

    Hi Zap, I have a similar connection. I arrive terminal 5 on Austrian, have a 2 hour layover and depart out of terminal 3 on American. Each trip is on a separate ticket. Is 2 hours okay?

     

    ScottF, since you have 2 separate reservations I don't think that is enough time. Maybe it would be possible without checked bags if everything went perfectly.

    Flying in on United from Knoxville to San Diego with a 40 minute layover in ORD with carry-on only. Is this possible? Thanks!

     

    Yes, it is possible. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will likely arrive in Terminal 2 and depart from Terminal 1. They are connected by a walkway inside security.

     

  • LAX to ORD then to MAD on 6/8 with carry on luggage.

    Traveling with AA airline from LAX to ORD (it is in T3); 4 hours later depart from ORD to MAD (Iberia airline depart also at T3) with only carry on bag and already print out boarding pass. Can I just walk to the gate and check-in at Iberia desk? Or do I have to go to "departure" desk again and re-enter to gate? thanks...

     

    Yes, you can go straight to your departure gate. If everything is on the same reservation then AA will be able to issue both boarding passes in LAX.

     

    It's different reservation, two separate booking...that's why I am not sure...should be the same right? Just go to the gate for international departure?

     

    Yes, if you already have your boarding pass you can still go directly to your boarding gate. Even if you don't they should be able to issue it at the gate in Chicago.

     

    Thank you soooooo much!

     

  • ENVOY AIR AS AMERICAN EAGLE to American Airlines transfer questions
    Jun 7, 2016

    If I fly from Des Moines, IA to Ohare and then on to Tampa, FL I have to change planes at Ohare and then the reverse on the return trip. The first flights on both trips are on American Airlines via ENVOY AIR AS AMERICAN EAGLE and the second flights of both trips are on American Airlines. How far do I have to travel to change planes at Ohare and do I have to go through security at Ohare?

     

    You do not have to go through security at O'Hare. All you have to do both ways is just walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 3.

    I am flying from CLE to OHare and from Ohare to Springfield Branson airport. I change planes at Ohare. Can you tell me if 60 Minutes layover will be enough tome? Will I stay in Terminal 3?

     

    If both flights are on AA then they will both be in Terminal 3 and all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • Flying from Paris to Toronto with a layover of 2 hours in Chicago

    Hi, I was wondering if I'll have to recheck my baggage at ORD? the ticket is on the same booking but codeshare with Air Canada. Flying into ORD on UA and out on AC. Thanks so much in advance!

     

    Yes, you will have to 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. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

    Thanks so much ZAP! We'll opt for a later flight just in case!

    Flying from ROC to ORD, then ORD to COU. Only 58 min layover. I am handicapped and wonder if this is enough time. Have a wheelchair on call with AA. Do the small planes CR145 which I am on both legs land in same terminal? Thank you, Donna

     

    Yes, both flights will be in Terminal 3, likely both on concourse G (although there's a small chance that one or both flights will be on concourse L).

     

    Thank you Zap.

    I fly from Toronto to Chicago to Utah with 1 1/2 hour for change from Terminal 2 to terminal 1. Do I have to go through customs & security? Will I have time to catch connecting flight?

     

    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. You have enough time. There is a walkway between Terminal 2 and Terminal 1 inside security.

    If we fly United (a codeshare with Air Canada) into ORD from DEN can we stay airside before boarding an Air Canada flight to YUL?

     

    Yes, there is a walkway between Terminal 1 where you arrive and Terminal 2 where you depart inside security and there is no US Customs when leaving the US.

     

    Merci!

    I will be flying in from Des Moines on a United flight and have a 2 hour 5 minute layover in Chicago. My next flight is United operated by Swiss Air to Zurich. Is this enough time? Will I go through security again and change terminals?

     

    You will be arriving in Terminal 1 or 2 and leaving from Terminal 5 which means you will have to change terminals and go through security again. Two ours should be sufficient time.

    I'm flying from Cincinnati to ORD with a 1 hour 20 minute layover before my next flight which is to Vienna (VIE). But I arrive in Terminal 2 via UA5248 and have to transfer to Terminal 5 for a Austria Airlines flight OS066. Two questions: [1] Must I go through security to enter the international terminal? [2] Is 1:20 enough time?

     

    Yes you will have to go through security when changing terminals and 1hr 20min will be enough time.

     

  • united 45min layover

    flying United SFO-ORD-CLE, landing in ORD 5:15AM and just informed the layover's been shortened to 45 minutes. Is that enough time?

     

    If the gates are in the same terminal and nearby you should be ok if the flights are on time or early. Next time go nonstop if you can. Did you buy them on separate tickets? If you did you will have to recheck your bags, but if you didn't buy them on different tickets then you should be ok if it's on time or early.

     

    Yes, that is enough time - all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Redeye flights usually arrive early.
