Hi, I'm coming from Tokyo with Detroit as my destination, with a 2.5 hour layover in Chicago. Will I need to go through immigration in Chicago, or will I do that in Detroit? The reason I ask is because of the short layover. I need to know if that's enough time, because I"ll be traveling with my 6 month old daughter. Please help. Thank you!
In Chicago you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs, then if your bags are tagged to Detroit you will drop them off at the re-check desk, then take the ATS Train to your departure terminal and go through security and to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Hi, I am travelling from Dayton to Delhi via Chiacgo and have only 1 hr 35 min to go to T5 from T3, is this time is enough? Do I need to pass through security check again at T5? Also Do I need to check in bags again if those are checked in at Dayton ? All bags are under same reservation from Dayton to Delhi.
Yes, you will have to go through security again in T5. If your bags are tagged to Delhi you will not have to do anything with them in Chicago. You have just enough time if the flight from Dayton is on-time.
I am arriving at 6:45pm from Helsinki / Finnair and connecting to Boston via American Airlines at 8:20pm. Is there enough time to deplane,get baggage,clear customs,and take bags to American in 1 hour 35 minutes?I think Finnair lands in Terminal 5,but not sure AA has gates at Terminal 5 ?? Can anyone help ? (Otherwise we'll be stuck in ORD for the night)
It's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. Your flight to Boston will depart from Terminal 3.
Hi I'm traveling to Doha,Qatar flying from Detroit to Chicago and I only have an hour and 10 minutes to get from t3 to t5 my bags are going straight to my destination do you think that's enough time to make my conncection flight?
Hi we are flying vancouver-chicago-heathrow with only 1hr20 layover in chicago is this possible?Im assuming bags will be checked through and we dont have to go through security again,thanks for your help
all flights are with united.
Yes, that is possible. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Chicago.
Do I need to recheck baggage at Chicago ORD airport as travelling from Kansas to delhi via Chicago on Kansas to delhi via united and Chicago to delhi via air india. Both tickets are booked under same reservation.. Do I have to take luggage from terminal 1 to terminal 5 by own or it would be automatically transferred
You won't have to do anything with your bags in Chicago on your way to Delhi since everything is on the same reservation.
Hey, I am planning to travel in December via ORD to Nashville. I would arrive with Air Berlin at 11:55 AM and am looking at a connecting flight with United that leaves at 2:30 PM. Will that give me enough time to go through immigration and Co. as an EU citizen? Thanks a lot!
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
