Hey guys, booking a trip to LAX for September. I'm thinking about taking UA PHL-ORD-LAX on Sunday 9/17/06 which is a sunday. PHL-ORD(#337) is a B735 leaving at 6am and getting into ORD at 7am. I would connect to a B763(#854) leaving at 8am and getting into LAX at 10:10am. Is 1 hour enough time to connect at ORD? I really wanna take this routing because i want to fly on a 767 and don't wanna be crammed on a A319 with 2 of my friends on a cross county flight. It sounds okay to me since it's a very early flight and barring any exteme weather or MX delays out of PHL, there shouldn't be a problem, but I thought I'd take the time to ask the experts for advice before i made a final decision. Thanks for any help you can provide.

You should have no problem. ORD isn't that busy in the mornings. ORD is messy in the afternoons and evenings when it has flights coming and going from all over the country.

Also United is banked in ORD, so it expects people to be making these 1 hour connections. There will probably be others on your flight making the same connection. 6am out of PHL isn't too bad either. Now if you were departing at 6pm and were connecting to the last ORD-LAX flight of the day, then it might be a bit different. ORD is a great airport before 2pm (which is when many of the flights from the west coast and Europe are arriving and crowding up the airport).



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

I worked at ORD as a UM Runner last summer. You can get anywhere in Terminal 1 within 9 mins. You'll be fine  Smile

For a large hub operation, transferring between mainline flights in ORD is pretty easy. I consider it better than ATL or DFW. It takes a bit longer to go between some express flights and mainline since T2 is a bit farther away, but there is a bus or you can walk. Fortunately though you don't have to worry about that.

The good news about this flight is that it is an internationally configured 767 with 3 classes of service. For those in economy this means that you will have a PTV with 4 movies, 4 short subject programming and then the airshow. It is a lot more fun and enjoyable than the domestically configured 767s.
