  • Changing from T5 to T3
    Jul 16, 2013
    Hello - travelling from LHR to DFW via ORD, arriving on AA91 to ORD and then leaving on AA 2359 to DFW. Have 90 minutes to transfer from T5 to T3. Will I make it? I heard for BA/AA share code flights there is another way than through customs, with a bus? Or do I need to go through customs?


    You will have to go through immigration in T5, claim your bags in immigration, then re-check them after you clear customs. You then go upstairs and take the ATS train from T5 to T3 (one stop). It's a tight connection but possible. However, if you do miss your connection, AA has hourly flights between ORD and DFW, however, since it appears that 2359 is at 9:40 PM, there is only one later flight to DFW. The good news about coming in that late is that immigration shouldn't be very crowded.


  • 7 hours time enough between flights?
    Jun 29, 2013
    Is 7 hours enough time between arrival from Reno at 1pm and international departure at 8:35pm to go into Chicago and back in time to go through customs?


    You don't have to go through customs on an international departure. Only security. Yes, that should be enough time to have about 2 hours in chicago. Take the CTA Blue Line.


    Thank you


  • From H18 to K12 in 35 minutes??? (terminal 3)
    Jun 20, 2013
    Can I make it from H18 to K12 in 35 minutes to catch my next flight? I can not run. thank for your help.


    If your first flight is on-time, yes, it's doable. It's a 10 minute walk.


  • Flight Departing at 5:35PM
    Jun 12, 2013
    Hello I missed my train and will be arriving at the Union Station at 4:15PM, will I be able to make it on time to O'hare for my flight's departure at 5:35PM. Please help.


    Maybe, if you run. It takes about 50 minutes to get from Clinton to O'hare. So if you get to O'hare at about 5:10 that would still leave you 25 minutes to get through security. Make sure you check-in on your phone. If you have to check bags, no way, you will miss the bag cutoff.

    Lost my British passport with J1 visa inside, it may have fell out my pocket. Call (1)(574)(806)(2827) Thank you

  • Lost - Folder with passport and DS2019
    Jun 2, 2013
    Lost a folder which has my Passport (Guru Rajesh Jammy), DS2019 form among other documents related to my travel (ticket, invite, copies of passport, etc) in terminal 3, G wing opposite gate G3 near the payphone. Please call - 412-708-5705


    In general, passports are turned over to the TSA - call 773-377-1210. That would be your first inquiry; otherwise gate areas are airline domain and you would need to contact your airline's lost & found. If someone found your folder & turned it in, The Chicago Police at 773686-2385 would be your last venue, but don't expect to get through right away. Hope you can retrieve it.

  • Security checkpoint
    May 9, 2013
    I have a meeting on Dearborn in Chicago and am getting picked up at 2pm. My flight is at 3:55 in Terminal 3 in the L wing. I'm praying it doesn't take more than an hour to get to the airport. What do security lines look like around 3pm in that area? I already have my boarding pass and don't need to check bags.


    You'll have to hurry. Traffic on Fridays is really bad. You might want to take the Blue Line instead.
