  • Time to Transfer between American & South West
    Nov 23, 2015
    Hi - we are travelling on 16th January - arriving from NY into Las Vegas at 10.30am and need to transfer to Southwest flight to Reno departing at 12.40pm. We will have luggage - will we have enough time to make our connection?


    Yes, that should be enough time. Both airlines use Terminal 1. Note that you'll have to claim your bags from American and re-check them with Southwest.


    Thank you!


  • Southwest Connection at las vegas

    I have a connection at las vegas, arriving SouthWest at B Gates and connecting southwest flight at C gate. Would I have to go through security? I only have about an hour between the flights.


    All Southwest gates at LAS are connected inside security and walkable. You have enough time as long as your first flight is on-time.

    I'm hoping to meet up with a friend at the airport before heading to our hotel. I'm arriving on United and she's on American. Would there be anywhere we can meetup after landing?

    Sorry, got my TERMINALS switched in last post. Arrive Gate D, then go to TERM 3 baggage claim, then to TERM 1 for check in to AMER AIR flight out of Gate D. Appreciate your help!


    There is a bus that connects Terminal 3 and Terminal 1 outside security. If you do not check a bag and do online check in for your American flight you will just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in concourse D.


  • Connection time between Gate D to TERM 1 baggage to TERM 1 check in
    Oct 20, 2015
    Arriving HA8 @ 6:20am at TERM 3, Gate D in 2 weeks. If I have checked bag, will then would need to go to TERM 1 baggage claim? What is walking time to get there? Possible to get bag and catch shuttle to TERM 3 to check in for 7:45am American Air flight to CLT (Charlotte NC) ? Would I then have to catch train to GATE D? Any train/shuttle/checkin options? If I do online check in, can I do bag drop at curbside instead of waiting in counter line? If I just have a carry on bag, can I just stay at GATE D, do online check in for Am Air and not have to move out of the gate area?? Thank you!!

    wanting to make a connecting flight on Southwest 35 minutes after arrival from Germany. Is that possible?


    No, that's completely impossible. Since those would be different terminals you need at least 2.5 hours.


  • Connect flight same terminal w/checked bags
    Oct 18, 2015
    Arriving on southwest , departure Allegiant. I will have about 2 hours between flights. Same terminal, different concourse. I will have a checked bag. Do I have to go through security again?


    Yes, you will have to claim your bag, re-check it with Allegiant and go back through security. If you can do it with only a carry-on it will make this connection much easier.


  • Do Gate C and Gate E connect?
    Oct 18, 2015
    I am flying out of LAS via Southwest in Gate C, I have a friend departing through Alaska out of Gate E. Can we go through security together or will we have to go in at separate areas? Is there a tram/train from C to E?


    There is no tram directly from C to E. There is a train from the Terminal 1 security checkpoint to the D gates and one from the D gates to the E gates and Terminal 3 baggage claim.


  • D gates to WN gates
    Jan 3, 2015
    I'll be departing LAS tomorrow evening, and I just found out a relative has a layover (3 to 4 hours) tomorrow late afternoon. I'm on DL, so I'll be out of the D gates, but they'll be on WN, probably C gates. Is there any sort of connection between the B/C gates and D? Or is the only way to leave security, walk down the hallway to the D gates, and clear security again? I don't think there is, but wasn't sure. I only fly DL in/out of LAS, so I've never been to the other gates. I was planning on getting to the airport an hour or two earlier than usual so we can catch up over dinner, and trying to figure out the most convenient way. I don't want her to have to leave security and then have to reclear it again. However, I have PreCheck. Can I go through the Pre line for the B/C gates, even though my DL flight will leave from D? That way I can get through quick, meet up for some food, and then clear security again easily at D gates. Thanks in advance


  • Term 3 - Term 1 shuttle connection
    Nov 13, 2014
    Do the shuttles between term 3 and term 1 operate 24 hours a day? If not what time of the day is their first ride?


  • C Gates to Terminal 3
    Oct 27, 2014
    I am arriving by way of Southwest into the C Gates (Terminal 1), but my car is parked at Terminal 3 (departed on United). Can I access the D gates without exiting security so to take the inter-terminal tram between T1 and T3?


    You should be able to, but it may require walking back towards the security checkpoint then following signs to the D gates.


    Thanks, much appreciated.

  • Terminal 3 to Terminal 1 at midnight in 1 hour
    Sep 12, 2014
    I will arrive at terminal 3 by HA18 at 11:45PM and leave at terminal 1 by US674 at terminal 1 at 12:59AM My questions are: 1) Will inter-terminal train operate at those time? 2) If I take the train, do I need to pass security? Many thanks,


    Yes, the trains are running at that time. Note that you just have to take the train from Terminal 3 to the D concourse. You do not actually have to go to Terminal 1 as long as you check-in online for your US Airways flight and print your boarding pass in Hawaii. You will not have to go through security.


  • Tram from T3 to T1 for a Southwest flight?
    Sep 11, 2014
    Hi, I live within walking distance to T3. I have a Southwest flight in T1. Can I check in at T3 and take the tram to the D gates and then C gates? Or do I have to take the shuttle bus out front?


    For clarification, I already printed my boarding pass so really I guess I'm asking if they will let me through security in T3 for a flight that leaves out of T1?


    Technically yes, they should let you though security in T3.


    Alright, thanks!!
