Next month I have a 2 hour layover between domestic flight arriving @ T1 and departing international flight @ T5.
Then my international flight arrives at T5 @ 1700 hrs and my domestic flight home departs T1 @ 1820hrs.
Am I in trouble???????????????????
What airline are you flying on for the International flight? Are both flights on the same reservation? Where are you flying from and to?
United from Charlotte to ORD connecting to Aer Lingus (Dublin) and vice versa. Yes, all flights are on the same reservation.

Thank You!!!
Both connection times are sufficient. All you have to do both ways is take the ATS Train between terminals and go through security. On your way back you pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin.
Thank you again.

Will let you know how it works out.
At what terminal at o'hare do aer lingus flights depart and arrive?
Aer Lingus arrives and departs from Terminal 5.
Travelling AUS - ORD - ZUR on UA in August. AUS - ORD flight arrives 451 pm in T1 and the UA code share flight operated by SwissAir from ORD - ZUR departs 710 pm. 1) I does the code share flight leave from T5?, 2) Is best way to get to T5 the people mover landside OR walk to T3 and use the bus airside, 3) is this sufficient time to make this connection?
Yes, the flight to Zurich will depart from Terminal 5. I would take the ATS to T5 (it's less walking), but you could walk to T3 and take the bus if you really want to avoid having going through security again, assuming the bus resumes operating this summer. You should have enough time to do either. Also the code for Zurich is ZRH, not ZUR.
I'm flying domestic (UA) into ORD I have 1 hour 18 minutes from the time my flight hits the ground to get to my connecting international flight heading to Munich. Do I have enough time? Do I have to go through security check again?
There is no security you have to go through. Just walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

on Sunday September 9th my family and I would like to fly from FRA to BZN via ORD (with United). We would arrive 10:30 am at ORD and the flight to BZN is at 12:15 pm. Do you think 1h 45 is enough time to go through US Immigration, claim our bags, go through US Customs etc.?
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thanks for your reply.
So you wouldn't recommend to do it? What would happen if we miss the connection flight? How high are chances that we would get another flight to BZN the same day?
It's possible. If you miss your connection you will either be rebooked on another nonstop to Bozeman if there is one that day or rebooked to Bozeman through Denver. I think your chances are good as traveling after Labor Day in the US flights to Bozeman should be less full.
Thank you very much for your help. :)
I'm flying from Indy to ORD, and then I have a 42 minute connection to make my flight to Dublin. I called United and I will have to switch from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1 at ORD.

Does anyone know if this is enough time and if I will have to recheck my bag at ORD? After I booked, it alerted me that is was a risky connection so just trying to see if anyone has had a similar experience and the time it will take to get from 2 to 1. TIA!
Yes, that is enough time. You do not have to re-check your bag. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. It will only take 10-15 minutes.
Flying from Toronto to Quito connecting at ORD. Toronto to ORD is on United, arriving at Terminal 1. ORD to Quito is Copa, a star alliance partner, leaving from Terminal 5. What do I need to do for checked in luggage?
If everything is on the same reservation you don't need to do anything with your baggage since you pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do is take the ATS Train to Terminal 5 and go through security.
I am looking to book an American flight from Seattle WA June 16 scheduled to arrive ORD 8:46 PM. Connecting American flight to Dayton, OH scheduled to depart 9:40 PM. Is th 54 minutes a long enough layover time? I am older and do not walk fast.
Yes, that should be enough time.
Flying into ORD with AA, changing to YYZ on either AC or UA CodeShare (layover time is about the same) - will one hour connection time be sufficient? Is there an easy walk path between the two or do I need to take a train / shuttle bus? Will the return (from YYZ to ORD with AC and connecting to AA flight) require same amount of time?
Do you have checked bags or not? 1 hour is not enough time with checked bags. If you don't have checked bags and the AA flight is domestic, it is possible as you can walk from Terminal 3 where you arrive on AA and Terminal 1 or 2 where you will depart on AC or UA inside security.
I am planning a round trip that ;departure from YYZ by Air Canada to SFO and then to connecting flight ( layover 2hr 50m) by United Airline to HKG . The returning flight schedule is; arrive on an ANA flight from NRT( Japan) at ORD (arrival time 2.55pm) and then to depart on an United Airline flight for YYZ at 5:50pm. Will I have to walk from one terminal to another terminal for my baggage claims, go through customs, etc., before being able to check in for another connecting flight throughout this round trip schedule? Also will I have enough time ? Thank you ~~
You will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the ATS Train to Terminal 1, go through security and to your departure gate. You have enough time.
thank you ZAP :)
