    My biggest fear here is that I am only leaving an hour or so between flights... I have not done much world travel, am I leaving enough time? Do I need to go through Customs?

    No customs in HKG; the biggest issue will be if the ORD-HKG flight is late.

    At BKK you do clear immigration, customs and security but the 1:55 should be enough time for that.

    Thanks... Its a honeymoon so I dont think the Mrs' would like it if we do not have a stress free trip. We are currently booked on Korean Air but I am looking to potentially switch over to United to get to Premier Exec quicker... just not sure what route is safest.

    Disclaimer: Booked on Orbitz, cheap to switch airlines
