We are a family of 6 flying out of O'hare on a friday in January. Flight is American 2;55pm departure. How early do I have to get there usually if I need to check 6 bags? Is 1:30 early enough? I'm asking beacsue our timing is very tight.
1:30 should be early enough but doesn't leave a whole lot of time to spare, especially if it's MLK day weekend.
We are flying from Dublin Ireland to terminal 3 O Hare arriving @11.45 with connecting flight to Dallas departing @14.25 also from terminal 3 both flights with American Airlines. Do we need to clear customs or can we just transfer to departures from arrivals. I am assuming that our baggage will transfer directly. Any information please.
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 3. You have plenty of time.
For all those who travel back and forth from the city to the airport, given the current traveling options (Train, Bus, Uber), will you pay $10 for a car service to get from the Water Tower Place to the airport?
I am flying United from Tokyo to Toronto with a layover in Chicago (NRT > ORD > YYZ) all on one ticket. I will have 2 checked baggages. Will I be arriving from Terminal 5 and departing at Terminal 1? Will my baggages be delivered to Toronto directly without rechecking them, and will I need to go through US Customs? Thanks!
You will have to 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 or Terminal 2 (check the monitors for your departure gate, if it's E or F get off at T2), then go through security and to your departure gate.
