We have a connecting flight fron San Diego to Heathrow in o'hare. It is an AA flight to Chicago then British airways to London. Will we have to collect our luggage at Chicago and recheck? Also we land at 15.45 and take off at 17.30 is that enough time to change from terminal 3 to 5?
If both flights are on the same reservation you will not have to do anything with your bags in Chicago on the way to London. Yes, that is enough time to change terminals.
Hi, I am booking flights for my client, who wishes to fly from LHR via ORD to SLC, the connection time in Chicago is 1h28 mins, is it enough to go through immigration, claim luggage and re-check in?
Thank you.
No, that is not enough time with checked baggage. In fact it would be quite difficult even without checked baggage.
Hi, I will be flying from Colorado Springs to Frankfurt via Chicago ORD. I wiould like to know if once I check in my luggage in COlorado Springs I should claim my luggage in ORD and check in again. I fly United Airlines from COlorado to Chicago and Lufthansa from Chicago to Frankfurt. I also have to change the terminal from 2 to 1. Thank you in advance for your support.
Hi again, I forgot to mention that II will have only 1 hour and 20 minutes for connecting flights. Do you think it is enough time for connecting to the Lufthansa flight to Frankfurt? Thank you!
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. If all 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.
Thank you very much for your qick reply!
I am traveling on 7 th Jan from DSM on AA3274 reaching ORD only at 5:23pm. My Emirates flight EK236 leaves at 7:40pm. I have to collect checked in bags, change terminals and recheck in bags. Whether 2 hours and 15 min sufficient for this transfer?
That will be very difficult, bordering on impossible.
Flying from Puerto Vallarta to Winnipeg via Chicago. Is 1 hour 56 minutes enough time to change terminals and do we have to clear customs/immigration in Chicago? We have always flown direct before.
Yes, that should be enough time. In Chicago 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, take the ATS Train to your departure terminal and go through security. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am flying from stl to ORD to Cancun . I have a one hour layover time at ORD to take my connections flight to Cancun . Will that one hour be enough time to clear security , immigration and get to gate on time for my Cancun flight ?
There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. What airlines are you flying?
Flying united airlines
Then all you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate on your way to Cancun. All United gates are connected inside security.
My daughter is arriving in Terminal 2 at 7:08 pm and is supposed to leave from Terminal 1 42 minutes later (7:50). She will have two small children with her. Is there any kind of golf cart type of vehicle that could meet her and take her and the kids to the other terminal so they don't miss their flight? How would I contact that kind of service at O'Hare, if they have one? Thank you.
There is no such service. She has enough time if the first flight is on-time. It is very doable. The two terminals are connected inside security by a walkway.
Thank you!

Read "flights with AA"........ Autocorrect got me.
Yes, all you have to do in Chicago is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in the H/K concourse.
Thank you so much for the peace of mind!
United from Richmond going to Hawaii with connection in Ohare will it be enough time to change terminals
Yes, Terminal 2 and Terminal 1 are connected inside security by a walkway. You have enough time if the flight from Richmond is on-time.
Flying United from Richmond with only 1 hour layover going to Hawaii is it enough time
