    arriving at 7:30am on Hawaiian air, Departing on Southwest air at 10:30am. Do I have ample time to retrieve my luggage, catch the shuttle from terminal 3 to terminal 1, and check in my luggage?


    That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Can I make an international flight to domestic in 1 hour and 20 minute
    Aug 15, 2016
    I am landing in terminal 3 from Stockholm and connecting to Boise in Terminal 1. (tomorrow landing at 4 pm and connecting flight at 5:20) The only problem is I have 1 hour and 20 minutes to make it! Will I make it?!! I can take all my luggage as carry-on...but I still have to go through customs and check-in through security again...??


    I don't think you will be able to make that.


  • Transfert in Las Vegas with checked baggages
    Aug 9, 2016
    I'm flying from London to Los Angeles but I have a stop in Las Vegas. I will land at 7:20pm from terminal 3 and the other flight is from terminal 1 at 9:40pm. They told me I need to take my luggages and check them in again... Will I have enough time? What is the fastest way to do so? Thanks for the help!


    What airlines are you flying? The only way between T3 and T1 with your luggage is a slow shuttle bus. This is a very difficult connection.


    We are flying with British airlines from London and then American Airlines to Los Angeles


    Are both of your tickets on the same reservation? If so then you can re-check your bags at the re-check desk in Terminal 3, go through security there, and then take the train to your departure gate in Concourse D.

    Flying in on Southwest with elderly woman will get a wheel chair to push her Dec 27 arriving 11:20 pm then have separate flight out on Hawaiian Air at 1:40 am do we have enough time to check in for the connecting flight with carryon luggage only no checked bags


    You can check-in online for the Hawaiian flight. You should have enough time.


    Thank you We won't have to go out through security and check in and go back through again? We can just check in online and go right to the gate?


    Yes, I believe you can - you would just take the train from T1 to the D gates

    I'm worried about time and switching terminals... I'm flying into LAS with American Airlines at 11:30am, but the connecting flight is a different airline. I switch to Alaskan Airlines to fly to SLC at 1pm. Will I have to leave the terminal and go back through security?


    If your bags are checked through or you don't have checked bags you can just take the Train from the D gates to Terminal 3.


  • Walk distance from baggage check in to gates C and B

    Just how far is the walk to these gates and how long does it take a small old woman to get there?


    C is a long concourse so it can be anywhere from 5-15 minutes.


  • Length of transfer from Gates D to E
    Jun 21, 2016
    I was wondering how long does it take to go from D gates arriving on Delta to E gates Departing on Virgin Atlantic taking the red line trams?


    It shouldn't take more than 15 minutes.

    I arrive on British Airways. I can either take a flight on United, Virgin America our Southwest Airlines. They are both 70-80 minutes after my arrival on BA. Which airline is quickest for me to get to after Customs?


    None of those connections are possible. You need at least 2 hours.


  • Terminal 1 concourse D to Terminal 3
    Jun 19, 2016
    LAX-LAS arriving in Terminal 1 concourse D, 90-minute layover, then to terminal 3 LAS-LGW. Both flights are under the same booking. I suppose there's a tram inside so I don't have to go through a security check? Will I have enough time? Where's the tram located? Many thanks for your help.


    Yes, there is a tram inside, it runs underground. It's fairly obvious where it is.


  • Allegiant outbound - visit AMEX lounge without security twice?
    Jun 9, 2016
    Wondering if I can visit the AMEX lounge first and then go to A gates for Allegiant flight without going through security twice? It appears I would go through security at E gates and then take the train over to T1 and go through security again at A gates. Is this correct?


  • D gates to E gate at T3
    Jun 3, 2016
    My AA flight will arrive from LAX at 8:51 PM and the next flight leaves 10 PM to Vancouver from T3. Is 1 hour enough time to get to the other terminal? Would I need to go through security lines again? I will not have any checked luggage. Thanks!


    With no checked bags you can just take the tram to the E gates from the D gates where you will arrive. If you do that then you won't have to go through security.

    Going from Montreal to Vegas to Sacramento Arrive in Vegas at 11a and Sacramento flight leaves at 1:25p is that enough time?


    What airlines are you flying? Do you have checked bags? I can't answer your question without that information. Sorry it took so long to respond.


  • Arrive in Vegas via Hawn Air...depart Vegas via United Air
    May 20, 2016
    If I arrive in Vegas via Hawn Air @ 7:15am and depart via United Air @ 9:39am - would it be safe to check in my baggage flying to Vegas?


    do you mean Hawaiian Airlines? No, I do not recommend checking bags.

    I am arriving LAS 9am in Terminal 1 and Bought a Separate ticket on Jet Blue leaving at 10am in Terminal 3, Would I have enough time to make the 10am Jet Blue flight? Do I have to go thru security again?


    No, that's not enough time. You really shouldn't' have bought that.


    My guess is no that is not enough time. If you have baggage you would need to pick up your luggage then get to terminal 3 by a tram-check in if you have to-and then get thru security. But if you only have a carry on and are checked in all you need to do is catch the tram to Concourse E you may just make it. But that is assuming that your flight isn't late to LAS. I would have like another 30 min (carryon only)-1 hour (checked luggage) leeway.


    May 16, 2016
    Ian flying into LAS from IAH on United and arriving at 11:20 pm. I then depart on Hawaiian airlines at 1:55 am to HNL. These flights were booked separately, so would I have rough time to mess with checked baggage between flights?


    Considering they're both in Terminal 3 you could if you had to, but not having to would sure be a lot easier.
