If you have less that 2 hours connection time however, you might want to ciersheck it just to transfer point to AF and recheck with AF....just to ensure it gets there.
I don't agree with that. Remember that most of the ZW
flights arrive in terminal 2 unless this is one of the odd flights stuck at B22 or on the C gates. Even so, the baggage is still delievered to Terminal 1 meaning he would have to walk to Terminal 1 to claim his bags, only to then have to catch the transport over to Terminal 5 for the AF
flight. That takes a while right there, then security in terminal 5 and stuff. 2 hours just isn't enough time in my opinion. If they do have baggage checked all the way through, then I highly recommend using it. We are handled by Air Canada in YUL
so I don't know how knowledgeable they are about it.
You could get real lucky and have the preclear computers in YUL
go down, which would force the plane to arrive in Terminal 5 to clear customs in ORD
. Believe it or not, this happened recently in YWG
and two ZW
CRJ's had to park at Terminal 5 so the passengers could clear customs.
