  • UA Vancouver flight arriving in T5?
    Oct 26, 2016
    3
    My wife has a pair of UA flights going from Vancouver through ORD to Boston tomorrow. She's only been given an hour for the connection, and we thought she'd be preclearing customs in YVR, but UA is reporting that that flight is coming into the International terminal. Is it possible that she'll preclear in Vancouver and fly into T5? Or does the T5 arrival mean that she's going to have to be clearing customs in Chicago, which would mean the connection is a pipe dream?

     

    Rest assured that she will pre-clear and that the flight will arrive in Terminal 1. For some reason United flight status shows future-day flights from Vancouver arriving in Terminal 5 although they do not. The correct T1 gate will appear tomorrow.

     

    Thanks for the reply; it eased our concerns. You were right; they have her flying into T1 now.

    I am traveling from MSP to Brussels via Chicago on United Airlines. Will tahe give me enough time to catch my connecting flight at ORD

     

    Yes, all you have to do in ORD is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. 90 minutes is plenty of time.

    Hi, I'm coming from Tokyo with Detroit as my destination, with a 2.5 hour layover in Chicago. Will I need to go through immigration in Chicago, or will I do that in Detroit? The reason I ask is because of the short layover. I need to know if that's enough time, because I"ll be traveling with my 6 month old daughter. Please help. Thank you!

     

    In Chicago you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs, then if your bags are tagged to Detroit you will drop them off at the re-check desk, then take the ATS Train to your departure terminal and go through security and to your departure gate. You have enough time.

    Hi, I am travelling from Dayton to Delhi via Chiacgo and have only 1 hr 35 min to go to T5 from T3, is this time is enough? Do I need to pass through security check again at T5? Also Do I need to check in bags again if those are checked in at Dayton ? All bags are under same reservation from Dayton to Delhi. TIA!!

     

    Yes, you will have to go through security again in T5. If your bags are tagged to Delhi you will not have to do anything with them in Chicago. You have just enough time if the flight from Dayton is on-time.

    I am arriving at 6:45pm from Helsinki / Finnair and connecting to Boston via American Airlines at 8:20pm. Is there enough time to deplane,get baggage,clear customs,and take bags to American in 1 hour 35 minutes?I think Finnair lands in Terminal 5,but not sure AA has gates at Terminal 5 ?? Can anyone help ? (Otherwise we'll be stuck in ORD for the night)

     

    It's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. Your flight to Boston will depart from Terminal 3.

    all flights are with united.

     

    Yes, that is possible. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Chicago.

    Do I need to recheck baggage at Chicago ORD airport as travelling from Kansas to delhi via Chicago on Kansas to delhi via united and Chicago to delhi via air india. Both tickets are booked under same reservation.. Do I have to take luggage from terminal 1 to terminal 5 by own or it would be automatically transferred

     

    You won't have to do anything with your bags in Chicago on your way to Delhi since everything is on the same reservation.

    Hey, I am planning to travel in December via ORD to Nashville. I would arrive with Air Berlin at 11:55 AM and am looking at a connecting flight with United that leaves at 2:30 PM. Will that give me enough time to go through immigration and Co. as an EU citizen? Thanks a lot!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    I am flying from Sacramento with 2 kids with American we will arrive terminal 1 gate k and connecting in ord flying with QATAR AIR WAYS to Doha gateC4 what is short way ?ATS or walking

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 3 and Qatar Airways uses Terminal 5. You can't walk - you have to take the ATS from 3 to 5 and go through security.

     

    Thanks,1h50min is enough time for that?

     

    Yes, that should be just enough time.

    I'm flying in on Delta and arrive at 11:40 and am flying out on China Eastern at 1:50. Is this enough time to move between T2 and T5? Will I have to clear security in T5?

     

    Yes, you will have to go through security again in T5. That is enough time if your bags are checked through and the Delta flight is on-time.

    My flight with United from Vancouver will arrive at T5 (international). Do I have to do the immigration again in ORD? My flight to EWR with United will leave 1hour 10min after arrival from T1. Is this enough time?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. You will arrive in Terminal 1 and depart from Terminal 1. All you have to do in Chicago is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I'll be connecting in ORD, arriving on UA into T1 connecting with SAS out of T5, and reverse on return. I have 1hr 10min connection on the outbound and 1hr 45 min. connection on return. Do you think this is enough time on both?

     

    It's possible but leaves no room for error both ways.
