Arriving from DUS at 1115 traveling on to DFW with 115 pm departure. Will I need to go through immigration-customers? Will I need to re-check my bag?
Why does Aer Lingus say to check in 3.5 hours before departure?
How much time does the security line take at Terminal 5 on Fri eve?
The security line shouldn't take more than an hour, but they probably start boarding close to an hour before departure. If you're there 2-2.5 hours early you'll be fine.
Hi I was wondering if 1 hour will be enough to check in to domestic flight? I am taking a bus from where I live and only have an hour before the flight departure. Please advise. Thank you.
That time would only be sufficient at very off-peak times such as late mornings/early afternoons and Saturday afternoons
I have an hour 15 min layover. Can I get to terminal 1 in enough time to make my flight?
Yes, there is a walkway connecting T2 and T1 inside security. You have plenty of time.
hello i am travelling from Delhi(India) to phoenix via london and Chicago (ORD). so my port of entry will be Chicago. layover time is 5 hours. and i have conection flights from British Airways. I have heard that ORD have quite a difficult port for immigration for F1 visa?? and as i am not travelling directly to phoenix will that can be a problem? (coz i didnt any direct flight). My university is- ASU
If you are holding a ticket to Phoenix that should not be an issue. 5 hours is plenty of time.
I have rented a car (from budget) from Columbus Ohio and will be arriving to Chicago at around 4pm
I have 3 big baggage and need help. Is there any assistance to find so I can have until my terminal?
Hi zap, I will have a flight from Kansai and transit at SFO for 3 hours, and then fly to my final destination at ORD.
Should I check in again at SFO?
and do I have to pass immigration/customes at SFO to get my flight to ORD?
How about my luggage? do I have to take my luggage again at SFO and re check in?or it will be delivered through my final destination in ORD?
I have Indonesian passport and all the flight will be with United airlines. Thank you.
If both tickets are on the same reservation you will be checked in for both flights in Osaka. In SFO you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. In ORD you just have to claim your bags.
Thank you for your quick reply. I love this forum!
I have a 6am (terminal 3) flight out of O'hare. I could show up at 3am, but I don' t think security opens until 4am. Will I be ok if I show up at 4am? I have precheck if that helps.
Security opens at 3:15 but Precheck doesn't open until about 5.
my parents are fluing in to ORD to T5 amd have to get to T3, where do they pick up and re check baggage? Also do they hae to re check in and get their tickets?
As soon as you get thru customs, collect bags and drop after you exit baggage claim at respective airline just outside the exit. Take escalator up to train level and take train to T3 (they arrive every 5-10 minutes and less than 10 minutes to T3). If they don't have boarding passes for next flight, they will have to visit their airline's customer service or check-in desk. They'll have to go thru Security at T3 to get to their gate.
