Traveling UA 4325 from Peoria with ORD Terminal 2 arrival and 41 minute connection for departure to Sacramento from Terminal 1 gate C21. Is that doable?
It's just enough time if the first flight is on-time. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. They are connected inside security.
I am travelling via United Airlines from PHX to ORD - Will that be enough time?
PHX to ORD - UA1419
ORD to BRU (International) - UA972
It is going to be close. You need to make sure your luggage is checked to go to Brussels and your checked in for your next flight. You have to go to terminal 5 via a train. It takes about 15-20mins. Than you have security to clear 15-20 mins. Then find your gate. Assuming everything goes smooth you will be good. However, Chicago has delays all the time. Hopefully they work in your favor.
Thank you for the information.
My Luggage will be checked in till BRU and I will be checked in on both flights together at PHX

UA Customer Service Rep told me that it will mostly be same Terminal (mostly Terminal 1)

I am worried about Security check, Hopefully it works out well - Thank you Geiger
Geiger is completely wrong. Both flights will be in Terminal 1. You only have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You do not have to go through security. You have enough time.
Thank You Zap!
I’m a US citizen and will be landing in Chicago at 6:45pm and have a connecting flight at 8:20pm. I checked into my flight back, but wasn’t given a ticket for the US flight. Do i need to get my luggage? And check into my domestic flight? I have been through ORD many times. I don’t think I will have enough time. What’s the fastest way i can do all of this in a hour?
Yes, you have to claim your bags to take them through US Customs. What airlines are you flying? Where are you coming from and going to?
Flying from Helsinki, Finland to Chicago via finnair. Then Chicago to Kansas City via American.
There is absolutely no way you can do that in just an hour. You 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 to Terminal 3 and go through security.
Ohare was a mess, but I made it. Had to beg them to let me try when I went to recheck and I had 30mins left. Walked on the plane with a minute to spare.
My incoming fly was delayed, and I had exactly 1 hour. I know there was other people on the plane trying to do the same thing. I was the only 1 out of 6 to make it.
im leaving asheville and have a layover in ORD for 1 hour and 3 mins before my next flight to Beijing . Is that enough time to get to my flight gate? Do i need to go through security ?
Coming in via united express and headed to beijing via united
All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Flying out on American Airlines. Are these both in the same terminal? I have 1 hr for layover time--enough?
Yes, both flights are in Terminal 3.
I'm planning roundtrip domestic travel through ORD on United. There's 50-min connection time in ORD on the way and an hour 10 on the way back. There's an advisory of a terminal change. Should I be concerned about time?
What airline(s) are you flying?
I am flying in from HKG to ORD (arriving around noon) and then onward to Tampa. Both flights on United. Transit time around 2 hrs 20mins according to booking.

Will I have enough time or is it not possible/risky?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I have 2 hours/arrival AA Term 3 and departure Icelandair Term 5 and I have 2 ticket so will have to claim bag. Will this be enough time?
That's barely enough time if the AA flight is domestic and on-time.
I need to know the transfer time from terminal 3 to terminal 5
I have 1hour 30 minutes between flights and both flights are with American Airlines
With regards to the post above both flights are operated by British Airways.
Hope this helps
Both flights are not operated by British Airways. Where are you flying from and to?
Flying from Orlando to Chicago and then 0n to London Heathrow.
Our booking is through British Airways
Your first flight will be operated by American. If your second flight is also operated by American, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 3. If your second flight is operated by British Airways you have to take the shuttle bus to Terminal 5. You should have enough time.
Thank you , much appreciated
Flying from Des Moines to Charleston sc on a Tuesday in January at 515 am. Is 50 minutes enough time for a layover between two United flights with checked luggage
That is enough time if the first flight is on-time. Does your flight from Des Moines really arrive at 5:15? That means it would depart at something like 4:00 AM?
No, the flight leaves Des moines at 515.
