3 hrs shoudl do you OK in ORD, BUT BE WARNED don't dally. If you fly into the US on a southern approach (on BA once, we entered the US in the Boston area) and up to an hour can be added to flight time.

Once in Chicago, go through the Immigration/Customs drama. On your left (I think) as you leave customs you'll need to recheck your bag with AA. There is basically a drop off counter -- quick and painless.

Then you LEAVE the terminal, get on the interterminal rail, go to TERMINAL 2 (AA's terminal). There go to security, go through, and to your waiting area.

What class are you in? That will have a huge effect on what you can expect.

If you're in J, you can use the Admirals Lounge. Pay Bar.

If you're in F, Flagship Lounge.

Y -- no lounge, pay for drinks in Y class.

I find the food to be decent in J. Seatguru can tell you what seats you most want.

I find AA's FA's to be professional, but not always superfriendly. AA staff tends to be the same way -- professional, but not chatty.

On a good note, they get your bags matched with your flight more often than not (always happy).

Check your gate when you arrive in terminal 2, gates do move.

Both the 767 and the 777 I find to be comfortable rides. Witht he length of flghts, expect in flight entertainment.

ORD can be a real zoo. Expect at least a 15 min line for security in terminal 2. It may not be that long, but good to buffer the time. INS/Customs when I was last in Chicago, and mind I am a citizen, was at least 45 min. This isn't abnormal. I had planned a 2 hrs as layover time -- it wasn't enough. I strongly suggest 3 to be safe, which is what it looks like you gave yourself. That said, if you arrive early, all goes well, when you go to recheck your bag, ask about an earlier flight -- if there is one. AA has a policy of "no favors" etc. HOWEVER, I've never had OW status until this year, NEVER had status w/ AA, but at the airport -- if I arrived early -- most of the time they'd rebook me on an earlier flight (provided one was available) for no charge. The trick is NOT to use a check in machine, but ask at the desk IMMEADIATELY after customs. Of course, they may say no, but always worth asking. Esp if you can get on an earlier flight, it can help AA in case of delays later in the day -- opening up seats on that last flight.

Once in terminal 2, betwen the H/K concorses (which make a Y) there are some decent places to eat. I think on the domestic flight you'd be charged for food (but not soda drinks).

The citing is hit and miss at Ohare. If you've got BA Gold or Silver status you can get into the lounge. If you're *A (I'm guessing United?) they are in a seperate terminal, again you'd have to go landside to get there, so there is no lounge in Terminal 2.

Good flights!!
