As the title says, I am flying from Tokyo to Toronto with a stopover at Chicago. Do I need to clear US customs before my connecting flight? I called United Airlines and they said no, I dont need to but I'm skeptical. Anyone with experience? thanks!!
Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the ATS Train to Terminal 1 or 2 and go through security. Whoever you talked to is painfully misinformed.
Taking a 5:30am flight first class American flight on a Sunday in May. Will have checked bags, but will already have checked in for flight online. Staying at connected Hilton Hotel. What time do we need to be at airport?
Hi, We arrive at ORD July 29 2017 at 18:35 from Toronto (originating in Tel Aviv). We depart ORD at 20:05 for for Albuquerque. We will have checked bags. Can we safely make this transfer in 1.5 hours? Many thanks!
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. If both flights are on the same reservation all you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
