    We arrive at the airport mid afternoon and have a 7 hour layover leaving at 9:30....any ideas or tour group that could provide us with a tour of Chicago or at least downtown area and Sears tower?

    My wife and daughter will be flying US Airways from CLT to ORD on US Airways and then must connect to a United Express flight to Calgary with only 50 minutes between flights. Will they be able to get between terminals in time to make their next flight?

    Hello. We are heading from Vancouver Canada go Dallas with a 50minute layover and connecting to Orlando. Both flights are American airlines. Is that enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver and in Dallas, the Skylink Train connects all terminals inside security.

    I have a flight that will land in BOS on AA at 4:10 PM and transfer to BA flight leaving at 5:55 PM. No checked luggage, just carry on. 1 Do I have to go thru security all over again and is this doable. Flight were booked together.

     

    Yes, you will have to go through security but you should have plenty of time. There is a shuttle connecting terminal B where you will arrive and terminal E where you will depart that runs on the curbside.

     

    Thank you feel much better now.

    I am a SriLankan and purchased my ticket from Sri Lanka to Canada with connection in Rome. I will be arriving FCO on UL (Srilankan) flight to FCO and after 4 hours boarding to Alitalia flight to Toronto (entire journey in one ticket). My baggages will be directly checked through to Toronto. Please let me know whether I need to get Airport Transit Visa to get to my next flight.

     

    You need to apply for an "A" Category Schengen Transit Visa at the Italian embassy or consulate. http://www.schengenvisainfo.com/transit-schengen-visa/

    We fly into ORD on 3659 and arrive 7:20am. Do we have to go thru customs? Will we have time to catch our 8:45am ORD to CLT 4634 flight?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in ORD is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will have plenty of time.

    I'm flying ATL-ORD-AMS. My flight from Atlanta lands in Chicago at 4:05PM and then my connecting flight to Amsterdam leaves at 5:25PM. Will I have enough time? Do I have to switch terminals or catch a train? Do I have to re-check my bags and go through another checkpoint? I booked the whole ticket at the same time.

     

    That is a ton of time. If you purchased your tickets together you will not have to do anything with your baggage. What airline are you flying? If both flights are on United then all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Thank you for your quick response! :) The ATL-ORD flight is with Delta and the flight to AMS with KLM.

     

    OK, you still have enough time but the procedure is a little more complex. You will arrive in Terminal 2, you need to exit terminal 2 and follow the signs to the ATS Train to Terminal 5. You will take it to Terminal 5 and go through security.

    Now that the new Immigration/Customs facility is open in Terminal D, how long does it typically take to get through and get to the gate in D, with no checked bags, only carry ons?

     

    It really depends on the time of day. In early Morning and Mid-Afternoon it's probably the longest. Probably 40ish minutes.

     

    Will be arriving around 11 am on a Monday. I have 1 hr 45 min layover. Think it's possible?? American airlines all the way. And will be one of the first off the plane.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

     

    Thank you so much for all your help !

     

  • PDX-SFO-MCO 34 minute connecting time

    Hello, I booked my flight months ago and was assured 34 minutes would be enough time, but now I'm getting worried. Family of 4 flying from PDX to MCO. Layover in SFO is 34 minutes. Called and will be arriving and departing from terminal 3. Will we make it?! I also found the early AM flight from pdx to sfo (UA 392) is 100% on time so that certainly helps. Will they hold the connecting flight a few minutes if needed?

     

    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that should be enough time. They usually don't hold flights. If you miss your connection you will probably be rebooked to Orlando through Houston.

    If I am flying writhin the state of Texas, do I still need a passport?

     

    You do not need a passport for any trip within the United States. However, you do need some sort of photo ID in order to get through security to board the aircraft.

    I arrive Delta C-18 afternoon, She arrives United A-2. Where can we meet? Baggage shared carousel area or?

     

    Those are in different terminals. You will arrive in Terminal C and she will arrive in Terminal B. Whoever arrives earlier can take a shuttle bus on the curbside to the arrival area of the person who arrives later.

    I'll be arriving in houston from cancun on Unitied and taking a connecting flight to Indianapolis. Will I need to get my checked luggage on arrival in houston and recheck it or will it automatically be transferred to my connecting flight

     

    You will arrive in Terminal E, Go though US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, then re-check your baggage at the transfer desk. Then you will go up to the departure level, go through security, and then take the TerminaLink train to your departure terminal if necessary.
