    Hello! I am flying from LAX on flight UA1217 to Chicago, O'Hare and connecting to Norfolk on flight UA3609. My layover is 55 minutes and I am hoping this is enough time. Does anyone know if it will be?


    If your first flight is on-time it should be enough time. Your first flight will arrive in Terminal 1 and your second flight might depart from Terminal 1 or Terminal 2, but the two are connected beyond security.

    we arrive from London on United Airlines with an hour wait before heading to Vegas, does my luggage get transferred automatically and is an hour enough times to change planes


    50 mins is not adequate as international arrivals at U.S. need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag; then proceed up one level to the Airport Transit System (ATS) station and take the ATS train, which runs every few minutes, to your connecting terminal, where you need to go through security check before proceeding to your connecting gate. United uses Terminals 1,, 2 & 5 - you will arrive at Terminal 5 & after re-check-in of bags to take the train to either T1 Or T2.


    a follow up question, is there signs that say "passport check", or "custom clearance" within T5? is "passport check and custome clearance" separate steps or the same step? i understand your post, but i don't know where to go for your steps within T5. your help will be appreciated.
