    Am getting spooked by all the TSA long wait time news. Want to fly out of SFO on Southwest (Terminal 1) on Sun at 7:05 PM. Cannot arrive at airport before 6PM. Can't find any reliable estimate of Security line wait times on a busy evening like Sun. Is 1 hour doable lately?i .

    I heard about the slowness at Terminal 3 and would like to just go though security at Terminal 2 and walk over to 3. Will ORD allow this?

    How many minutes/hours in JetBlue DCA security line?

     

    Very short - DC area airports are always well staffed by the TSA and the terminal JetBlue uses isn't very busy.

    Hi There, I have a 2 hour 30 min layover in Dallas, however I need to change airlines. I arrive on United and depart with Delta. I have noticed both airlines are in the same terminal. Am I correct in thinking I have enough time to collect bags, re-check and go through the TSA screening? Thanks

     

    Yes, if the first flight is on-time that should be enough time.

    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? Thanks!

     

    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.

    How early should I arrive at the Freeport, Grand Bahama airport for my flight back home to Miami

     

    At least 2 hours early because you will have to pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Freeport.
