  • Connecting to different airline
    Jan 5, 2015
    I am booked on American from Hartford to ORD for the first leg of a trip to Montrose, CO. The second leg is on United. Will I have to claim my baggage and re-check it when I get to ORD?


    If you bought your tickets together your bags should be transferred to United and you'll just have to walk from T3 where you arrive to T1 or T2 where you will depart. If you purchased two separate tickets you will have to claim your bags in T3 and take them to T1 to check with United.


  • Mailbox

    Hi I have some letters I need to mail. Is there a mailbox in the airport or in the United Club??


    There are no public mailboxes located within the terminal areas of the airport.


  • international connection question
    Jan 5, 2015
    I have 1 hour and 39 minutes to connect from my in coming flight (AA) from BDL to my outgoing flight (AA) to CDG on Jan 6. Will that be enough time?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate which will both be in Terminal 3.


  • Connecting Flight
    Jan 5, 2015
    I am flying in from Hong Kong via Cathay Pacific, arriving in ORD at 19:35. Planning to book a connecting flight to Omaha via American Airlines at 20:50. Is this enough time? Thanks!


    NO! That is not enough time. Especially considering you are buying separate tickets. You will probably have to spend the night in Chicago and fly to Omaha the next morning.


  • Connecting flight - immigration & sec check
    Jan 10, 2015
    We will be arriving in IAH from Europe - connecting flights to San Antonio. We will have 140 minutes to get to the next flight. 1. Will this time be enough? 2. We need one wheelchair (already contacted the airline) - will we be picked up at the plane and will they help us through the immigration? 3. Will we have to pick up our luggage and check it in again? Thanks!! 3.


    Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, wheelchair assistance will meet you at the plane and make sure you are taken care of until you are on board your second plane. Yes. You will have to pick up your bags after Immigration, then go through customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk before going through security and to your departure gate.


  • between terminals
    Jan 4, 2015
    I will stay in Hilton Hotel for a night and in the morning i have to carry my 2 big baggages and 1 carry on from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1 and i know that there is no cart allowed on Airport train so i am wondering is there any way for me to carry all my baggage to Terminal 1 to check in


    The Hilton is connected by tunnels to Terminal 1 and 2. It is not in Terminal 2. If you can, get a cart and bring it through the tunnels to T1.


  • Atlanta customs with no bags
    Jan 1, 2015
    Hi! I have one hour to get out of the airplane from Peru, clear customs and take a taxi to an interview. Is it possible to clear customs and be out of the airport in one hour. I won't have any bags to claim only my carry on.


    If you only have to be out and to the taxi in an hour, that's possible. If you're expecting to be downtown an hour after you land, no, that's not possible.


    Thank you zap! Yes I only have an hour to get to the taxi and then an extra 40 minutes to get to uscis office


  • SAL-IAH-EWR-BHX Flight - Do I have to claim baggage at IAH?
    Dec 31, 2015
    Good morning everybody and happy 2015! ^___^ I have the following flight plan on January the 8th, 2015: San Salvador (El Salvador) SAL - Houston IAH {UA 1467} (2 hours 5 minutes connection time) Houston IAH - Newark EWR {UA 0369} (1 hour 50 minutes connection time) Newark EWR - Birmingham (United Kingdom) BHX {UA 0027} I bought the three flights as a single ticket with United. Although I wish I could check in my bag in SAL to final destination and claim it at BHX, I doubt that this is allowed on a International-to-National and National-to-International USA connection combo like the one I have at IAH-EWR The question is: do I have to claim my bag at IAH, or EWR, or it can be sent straight to final destination? And: how long does it take to claim and re-check my bag at IAH? Does United have any priority queue for short connections? Kindly let me know! Your insight is much appreciated! And, again, have a wonderful 2015! ^___^ - Sam


  • 46 minutes
    Dec 31, 2015
    I am traveling from St. Louis to Dallas and from Dallas to OKC. I have a 46 minute layover in Dallas. Will that be enough time to catch my connecting flight?


    Yes, that should be enough time, but be aware that you posted this in the forum for the Houston airport.


  • connection time
    Dec 30, 2015
    I arrive from Las Vegas #1602 and then have a connecting flight to Flint, MI #2053 and it states that I have to change airports? Both say Terminal S Can you help?


    Atlanta only has one airport. Are you perhaps departing from Detroit and arriving to Flint? If so that's what it's referring to. If both flights are on Delta in Atlanta, all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all gates inside security.

    I am traveling from Las Vegas #1602 and then must get on a flight to Flint, MI #2053 but when I booked it states that this flight books from another airport. What does that mean since they both say Terminal S
