  • D To C
    Jan 16, 2017
    Can I go from United (D gates) to Southwest (C gates) without clearing security again?


    It's theoretically possible (follow sings for the Delta baggage claim from the D gates to get on the right train, but then do not exit the sterile area, follow signs to the C gates once the train arrives in Terminal 1). However, I've never done it and have not personally read an account of anyone who has done it. if you do it, please write here to let me know it's possible.


  • Location of Southwest and Delt terminals
    Jan 13, 2017
    Im Flying in to McCarran AP on Southwest and a friend is arriving on Delta; are the two terminals close to each other


    Delta uses the D gates which are in their own building, but both airlines use Terminal 1 for check-in and baggage claim, so technically, they use the same terminal.


  • Meeting friend at Gate
    Jan 19, 2017
    I'm flying in with JetBlue to Terminal 3, but my friend is at Terminal 1 with Air Canada, can I meet him at his gate without going through security? Can I get through security with my existing boarding pass?


    Getting from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1 inside security is difficult and requires going through the D gates. You cannot get through security without a boarding pass DEPARTING Las Vegas that day.


    So it's difficult, but not impossible?


    It's theoretically possible, but I have no confirmation of actually reading about anybody who went from T3 to T1 inside security through the D-gate trains. If you successfully do it, please let me know.


    I am flying into C in Las Vegas at night with one hour until a connecting flight on a different airlines in Terminal do I go from C to D quickly without going back through security?! Thanks!


    Follow signs to the D gates. There is a train from T1 to D for Delta and American passengers.


  • Connecting flights at Las Vegas

    I have a flight with Delta arriving at 6.35PM and a connecting flight with Southwest departing at 8PM. I have only carry on luggage, will I be able to make it?


    I supposed it's possible, check in online for your Southwest flight and follow the signs to the Delta baggage claim and get on the train to Terminal 1 but then don't exit security, instead follow the signs to the B and C gates.


  • SW to Frontier
    Dec 28, 2016
    San Diego to Vegas. Southwest. Arrives Vegas at 10:05 pm at Terminal 1. Connection Vegas to Milwaukee. Frontier. Departs Vegas at 11:25 pm from Terminal 3. Have TSA precheck. No checked bags. Only carry on. Do I have enough time to make my connection?


    If the first flight is on-time, then yes, you should be able to make that. Note however, that you won't get pre-check in Las Vegas because Frontier is still not a pre-check participant.


    Frontier website says they do participate in pre check!


    Thanks for that info - that's a recent occurrence.


  • Tram or Shuttle
    Dec 22, 2016
    My friend and I are flying in at the same time me in Terminal 3 and her in terminal 1. I don't have any checked lugguage, could I take the tram to terminal 1 to meet her or do I have to take the shuttle?


    If you are arriving in concourse D, you could follow the signs to the American baggage claim and that would take you to the same area as she arrives in.


  • British Airways to JetBlue in 1 hour 25 mins
    Dec 8, 2016
    Arriving on BA flight from London at 18:35 and changing to JetBlue flight to San Francisco at 19:59, a British citizen, now bags. Will I have enough time to go through Immigration and then checkin for the JetBlue flight? Thanks in advance


    with no bags


    That should be just possible. You can check in for your JetBlue flight online before leaving London. In Las Vegas you will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security.


  • Alaska Air connecting to Delta and back?
    Nov 27, 2016
    Looking at flights - first one gets in on Alaska Air from Seattle at 9:00 PM, and departs at 11:35 PM to Cincinnati. The flight coming home gets into Vegas via Delta at 5:30, then departs from Alaska Air to Seattle at 7:50 PM. Are both of these long enough to make it if we only bring carry-ons?


    Yes, both of those connections would be sufficient.


  • SW to United in 30 min
    Nov 22, 2016
    Arriving on SW flight at 10:45pm, departing on United at 11:20pm on Dec 23. No bags. Will I make it?


    Realistically I don't think that's enough time because you have to go completely across the airport.


  • Time between terminal 1 and concourse d

  • Terminal 3 - Terminal 1
    Oct 21, 2016
    Flying Westjet from Canada to Las Vegas, arrive 18:17 Flying Las Vegas to Miami same night, depart 22:35 Will have hand and hold luggage, never flown to/from LAS in my life. Do I have plenty of time?


    Yes, I think that should be enough time, even if you are flying from a non-precleared location in Canada.


  • Westjet to American
    Oct 10, 2016
    Have an hour for a connection between Westjet and American. Can it be done?


    From a precleared origin in Canada with no checked bags, maybe if everything goes perfectly. If from a non-precleared origin in Canada or with checked bags, no, definitely not.


    What if I get in on Westjet at 11 and leave on American at 12:50


    From a Precleared origin in Canada you'd have a chance, without preclearance, still no.


  • Short Layover
    Oct 6, 2016
    Scheduled to arrive Allegiant at 8:30a. Leaving Southwest to SNA at 9:00a. Will I make it?


    While not technically impossible, I wouldn't try that in a million years.


  • all southwest
    Oct 4, 2016
    traveling dec 23 connecting sw flights less than one hour between. will i make it?


    Yes, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All Southwest gates in Las Vegas are connected inside security.
