I've heard such varying statements regarding increased wait times. I'm flying from SFO --> LAS on 6/16 at 7:30 PM. I obviously don't want to miss my flight but I don't want to take unnecessary time off work as I've recently started a new job. What time would you recommend arriving at SFO?
Arriving at SFO at 6 PM would probably be sufficient.
Check the current TSA wait time for your terminal at SFO. Simply enter a search for, "SFO TSA wait time Terminal ---" also take into consideration if you are checking in luggage . Give yourself time by checking ahead with your airline advisements as well. Add up the wait times and there you go. Good luck
Thanks for your reply. I do know about the wait time updates. However, "30+ mins" is extremely vague and defeats the purpose of having the updates. Of course I'm going to allow a time cushion, I just want to know if I need to allow a ridiculous cushion of 3 hours.
With a small group flying on Emirates out of SFO International terminal on Friday6/3.Emirates site states 2 hr wait time at security at USA airports but it looks like security wait times at SFO are not more tham 30 minutes. Is this the case?
You should still get there 2 hours early to check your bags and do international document processing.
