My United flight from Cleveland arrives in ORD at 2:47pm and my flight on Austrian Air leaves for Vienna at 4:10. Is this enough time? United says yes and won't change my ticket even though the Cleveland arrival time was moved later after I purchased. It also looks like there is construction on the ATS.
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. The ATS construction is at the end of the system, not near the terminals, so I don't believe it is affecting the connection times to Terminal 5 from other terminals.
Thank you!
Hi, I'm arriving at ORD terminal 3 on an American Eagle flight at 11:20 am and departing out of terminal 5 on Etihad at 1:05 pm (layover of 1h 45m). I don't have to check-in bags but have 2 small kids. Is this sufficient time to transfer? How long does it typically take and do we have to go through security again?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. You will have to go through security again in Terminal 5.
Hi all, I am flying with AA from Nashville to Chicago on Thursday. I will land 4:02pm on terminal 3 and my flight (also AA) to London departures 5:10pm from terminal 3. Do you think that I will have sufficient time? Thanks in advance!
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
How would I get from Terminal 1 (united) to 3 (virgin America)? How long does that take? Thanks!
You can walk inside security if you don't have checked bags. If you have checked bags you'll have to walk outside security. It's not too long of a walk - maybe 15-20 minutes.
My parents coming from Frankfort to Chicago at 7.15 PM by Lufthansa and they have connecting flight to Atlanta at 8.58 PM by United ,They have 1.45 hours for connecting next flight. They have to complete immigration and then come to other terminal, is this time sufficient. They need wheel chair assistance. Does United/Lufthansa will take care of it?
That is just enough time if everything goes perfectly. Yes, if they have requested wheelchair assistance on their reservation then they will be taken care of.
Thanks ZAP, yes they have requested wheelchair assistance
How much time do I need to connect between an AA arrival in T3 and a BA departure in T5? I have to pick up checked bags from the inbound AA flight and check them into the outbound BA flight as the two flights are not on the same PNR.

THanks!
I would want at least 2.5 hours.
Hi, I'm arriving terminal 1from Omaha at 8.30pm June 13, and departing at 9.40pm turkish airline will I have enough time? And will my baggage be trasfered on time so do not loose them or have them deliver later. I am travelling with 3 kids
That should be enough time if the first flight is on-time. You will have to take the ATS Train to Terminal 5, but security lines in T5 shouldn't be long at that time of the evening.
i have a flight from SFO on United to Nairobi on Turkish Air (connecting in Chicago). i have a chicago layover for 1h45m. is that enought time?
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will have to take the ATS Train to Terminal 5 and go through security assuming your flight out of Chicago is operated by Turkish.
I will arrive at O hare on sunday July 2 at 6:15 am from Flint with American Airlines and will depart at 8am to Mexico via Houston with United Airlines. Will this 1:45 be enough to make the connection?
With no checked bags that's possible, but with checked bags that will be very difficult but not totally impossible.
Is 70 minutes a sufficient connecting time to go from UA domestic Terminal 2 to Lufthansa international Terminal 1?
Yes, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
