  • Baggage
    Jan 24, 2015
    Hi, i m having connection in ORD, coming in from Heathrow (terminal 5, AA flight) and flying to Lambert, St Louis Int. (terminal 3). Do i have to claim out luggage and re check or will it be transferred for me?


    You will arrive in T5, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then take the ATS Train one stop to T3 and go through security and to your departure gate.

    We arrive in terminal b at 9:17 and leave out of the international terminal at 10:07 will we have enough time group of 12 will they hold the plane for that large if a group


    B is a concourse not a terminal. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. Yes, you should have plenty of time. They may hold the flight a few minutes, but not indefinitely.


  • From terminal B to Terminal B
    Jan 26, 2015
    Hi I know that I can travel to A using AIRTRAIN but give me some specific train number or any sign that I can understand this is my train means LAST STATION or ANY NUMBER?


    Its from T-B to T-A and also for T-A to T-B.


    The AirTrain is a very simple train. It just goes from a larger train station and parking area to the three terminals. There are no train numbers. In the station there will be a sign showing which side of the platform to board on to get to Terminal A.


    Hi I booked my ticket to nashville from mumbai with Newark stop of 5 hrs. So I need to check in my hand luggage to UNITED counter and make my boarding card OR directly go to SECURITY?


    After you clear customs there will be a transfer desk right there. Assuming your bags are tagged to BNA, you can re-check your bags there. You do not have to take them up to the departure level or to any other terminal with you.


  • 50 minute layover enough time?
    Jan 24, 2015
    Hi, I am considering buying a ticket and am wondering if I have enough time to make the following connection: Arriving at 11:20 AM on a United Airlines domestic flight (from ROC), and departing on an American Airlines domestic flight (to LAX) at 12:10. Thank you very much for your advice!


    Without checked bags and if you check in for your AA flight online before you leave ROC, that's enough time. But with two tickets purchased separately if you have checked bags you will not have enough time to transfer them.


  • Is it enough time
    Jan 24, 2015
    Hi, i will arrive at 2:43pm in Houston from Cancun with a united airplane. My Connection fight departs at 4:05pm with lufthansa to frankfurt. Is that enough time? Do i have to claim my luggage And re check it? Thanks


    That should barely be enough time. The United policy is that because you are on an International to International connection you will not have to claim your bags, but please confirm that with the united staff in Cancun and Houston. Also, note that you will still have to go through US Immigration and Customs.


  • Baggage, same terminal
    Jan 24, 2015
    Coming in from YYZ stopping in ORD connection to a Wichita bound flight. 90 min layover. Staying in terminal one all United flight as well. Do we have to claim out luggage and re check or will it be transferred for us


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. One or more of your flights may actually be in Terminal 2, but it is connected to Terminal 1 inside security by a walkway if you need to go between terminals.

    I am flying from Lincoln, NE to Munich, Germany with international connection at ORD. my connection time to make my change for the Munich flight is 1 hr. 49 min. Is this possible


    Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Connection time
    Jan 23, 2015
    Flying from naples to rome on Alitalia then rome to Atlanta on delta we have 11/2 hr to connect but do we have to go from terminal 1 to terminal 5 and then g for flight or just term1 to gate g? I am so confused!


    No, your bags will be checked through to Delta. All you have to do is go to your departure gate in the T3 Satellite and show your documents to the Delta desk there.


    Thank you so much


  • IST-ORD-DEN 1.5 hour connection in ORD
    Jan 24, 2015
    I'm flying on Turkish Airlines from Istanbul, connection time in Chicago is 1.5 hours before United flight to Denver. I won't have checked luggage. Is 1.5 hour enough connection time in Chicago?


    Yes, that should barely be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then take the ATS train to Terminal 1 and go through security and to your departure gate.


    Thank you. I don't have checked bags, so would 1.5 hours be plenty of time, or does "barely enough time" already assume I have no checked bags?


    Yes, having no checked bags makes it a lot easier, there's a special lane for people with no checked bags.


  • Terminal C to Terminal A on Skylink
    Jan 23, 2015
    I'll be connecting in DFW with about an hour layover if my first flight is on time. Does the Skylink train that goes in the direction of the A terminal stop at both stations in the A terminal? Or should I get off at the first stop even if it's not closer to my gate? I don't want to risk having to take the entire train loop if my first flight is delayed.


    All stations are served by trains going both directions.


  • Terminal 5 to TBIT
    Jan 23, 2015
    Hi everyone, I have an hour and 20 minute layover where I need to go from Terminal 5 over to TBIT. Will I make it in time? Also, this is my connection to Sydney AU. Do I need to collect my checked back and recheck it? It seems like my bag should be transported to my departing plane automatically. Thanks!


    If you purchased all your tickets in one purchase your bags will be transported. If so you do have enough time, however, you will have to go through security again in the TBIT. If you purchased two separate tickets you are going to have a very difficult time making your connection. What airlines are you flying?


    I did buy my tickets all together via Expedia in one purchase. I will be at terminal 5 arriving via Delta, and connecting to TBIT and Virgin Australia.


    Then yes, your baggage should be transferred and you should be issued both boarding passes at your origin. You may have to show your passport to the Virgin Australia agent at your departure gate so they can put that info into their system.


  • Delta A Terminal to Virgin Atlantic E Terminal
    Jan 24, 2015
    We are arriving in Terminal A on a Delta Domestic flight. We are connecting on a Virgin Atlantic Flight to London Heathrow in terminal E. Do we have to reclaim our bags or will Delta transfer since they are an airline partner with Virgin Atlantic? What is the best way to get from Terminal A to Terminal E?


    If you purchased your tickets together then Delta will check your bag through to London. There is a walkway from Terminal A to Terminal E.


    Thank you. You seem to be very familiar with Logan .Is the terminal walkway to TE easy to find from delta arrival gates in TA?


    I actually haven't been there in awhile and have never used that walkway, so I can't help you with finding it. The blue line on this map is the walkway. http://boston-bos.worldairportguides.com/terminal-maps.php


  • International Arrival with Domestic Connection
    Jan 23, 2015
    I am looking at a Delta flight from CDG scheduled to arrive at 8:30pm on a Thursday. My domestic connection would be at 10:00pm and is the last flight out that night to my final destination. All my research indicates it is doable depending on planes, staff, ontime arrival from CDG. Thoughts?


    It should be possible but leaves very little room to spare in case of a delay.


  • 45 min till bording closes
    Jan 23, 2015
    Hi! I'm arriving at 5pm from Aspen (if the plane is exactly on time) and I need to catch a plane that leaves at 6pm to Amsterdam. The bording will start 5.15 and end 5.45 so I have max. 45 min to reach the gate. Is that possible? Do I have to go through security again?


    You do not have to go through security. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Yes, you have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • IAH to Bonnaire with 59 minute connection
    Jan 23, 2015
    Can we make a 59 minute connection flying from PHX, changing plane is Houston, to Bonnaire? Flying United


    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that should be enough time. You just have to walk from Terminal C where you will arrive to E where you will depart.
